THE MILLER'S DAUGHTER.
(A German talo of love.)
The twilight still hung over the val
ley and streaks of mist lay against
the mountain slopes. A cool wind blew
through the branches of the trees, set
the white blossomB In motion and rus
tled among the dry reeds so that It
sounded like the soft tones of a harp.
Then the mountain tops became crlm
Bon, the pines creaked and stretched
their boughs as If awaking from sleep.
The nun ball mounted high In the heav
en and strewed bold over the crowns
of the firs, and the forest birdB flapped
their wings, raised their voices and
sang their morning song.
At that moment a young man ap
peared on the high road that led
through the wood. He wore the leather
Jerkin of a huntsman and In his cap
was a gray eagle's feather. A broad
hunting knife with a bone handle hung
at his side, but Instead of the gun a
knapsack of badger fur was strapped
on his back. This and the Iron-tipped
thorn stick that he swung In hln hand
Indicated that the young man was on
no business of the chase, but was about
to start on a Journey nnd so he was.
Just there, where a path led from
the main road to a mill, the young fel
low halted and seemed undecided
whether to continue on the high road
or to turn down the footpath to the
hermitage. But he did not hesitate long.
He looked gloomily In the direction of
the mill, thref back his head defiantly
nnd gave a hunting call that echoed
through the pines. Then he went on
"Farewell, thou green and pleasant
I leave thee now forever,
To reach and grasp what greater good
The world may grant endeavor.
"With skill and Joy,
As a hunter-boy.
Have I pursued the quarry; , '
Now go I far
To camp and war.
To bloody fray and foray."
But the Inst words stuck In the young
fellow's throat, and the half-stifled sigh
at the end accorded ill with the merry
Suddenly the huntsman left the broad
road and came through the wood
straight to the deserted hermitage. He
stoped at the spring, bent down and
filled a wooden cup with the cool water.
He drank It slowly and poured the last
drop over the moss.
"There," he said. "Now It Is all over."
The water was clear and cold, but It
could not cool the feverish blood of
the drinker. He sat down on the thres
hold of the hut and covered his face
with his bends.
The previous summer he had returned
home after a long absence, and had
entered the service of the old forester.
He had seen a little of the world; ho
had hunted the chamois in their mount
ains, as one of the emperor's suite; he
had followed his master to merry hunting-boxes,
and to the splendid palace In
the capital, nnd he had carried with
him everywhere his love for the mil
ler's blonde daughter. Ho had re
turned with a neat little sum of money
and many sweet hopes; but they had
come to naught, nnd now he was about
to leave the village and enlist as a
It was at the hermitage that he had
seen his sweetheart for the first time
after the long separation. She hnd
come to fetch water, and when the
hunter saw the beautiful, slender fig
ure bend down over the stream his
happiness was so great that he sprang
from his hiding place with a Joyful
cry and took the frightened girl In his
arms. But she pushed him trom her
so violently that he reeled backward,
then she turned her back upon him
and left him.
Afterward the hunter hnd made one
more attempt to win the favor of the
miller's daughter. It was at harvest
time when young and old trooped mer
rily to the dancing green. The hunter
had plnced himself in the fair one's
path and met her with friendly greet
ings nnd a bunch of dark red carna
tions. Hut when she saw the young
fellow come toward her she turned and
went back to the mill; and the hunter
threw the nosegay angrily Into the mill
stream. He did not know, to be sure,
that the coy maiden fished them out
at the dnm, dried them and laid them
carefully away among her little posses
sions. Then the hunter hnd become defiant.
"If you go to the left I will go to
the right," he said.
And In order that she should not
Imagine that he took the matter to
heart he colected a company of Jolly
brothers, drank, sang, nnd pursued
bo mad a course that the wild fellow
was the talk of the country for miles
This went on the whole winter. Then
one evening a fiery strenk like a sword
was seen in the sky, nnd shortly after
ward news enme that there would bo
fighting on the border when spring ar
rived. Before long the drums began
to sound In the land, and the roads
were thronged with people netting out
to Join the imperial forces. Then the
hunter left the forester's service, gave
a farewell feast to his jolly compan
ions and followed the rest In the hope
of forgetting all hio troubles on the
battlefield. And he had actually got
as far as the hermitage in the forest.
There he sat now, on the doorslll and
hung his head in misery.
A soft rustle in the distant under
brush was heard by the young fellow's
sharp ear. The woodsman in him was
strong, and he looked with piercing eyes
for the cause of the disturbance. But It
was no wild animal that went through
the bushes. Among the pine trunks
there was a light shimmer as of a wo
man's garments. The hunter gilded
noiselessly, but with beating heart, be
hind the mall of the hut, for through
the wood came sho whom he would
glndly forget but could not.
The girl came slowly nearer. From
time to time she stooped to gather a
flower for the nosegay that she carried
In her hand, and then her long flaxen
braids fell over her shoulders and
touched the ground. At the spring sho
tilled an earthen Jug with water nnd
placed the nosegay in It. Then she
went ltno the chapel, set the vessel
with the flowers before the picture of
the virgin, and knelt down on the moss
She repeated the Ave Maria In a low
voice, and then she began to lay bare
her heart to the queen of heaven. It
was a prayer full of self-accusation
"I have driven him from me," she
lamented; "driven him forth to danger
and death. And I love him so, more
than the light of dny. It Is not yet
too late; I could still recall him by
a word If I only knew that he still
cares for me. Give me a'slgn. oh heav
en, that he still thinks lovingly of mo
nnd I will go after him. as far as my
feet can carry me. and lend him back.
Give me a sign!"
Then, nbove her. the bell rang softly.
It was a single note, but It sounded In
the heart of the maiden like a trium
phant song of rejoicing. She raised her
eyes questloningly to the picture of
Mary. Then the bell rang ror me see-
-ond time, louder and mce happily, and
when the maiden turned there, In the
doorway of the chapel, stood the young
hunter nnd stretched out his arms to
his loved one. But this time she did
not repulse him. She put her nrms
around the young fellow's brown neck
nnd stammered words of love.
The titmice and the g ilden pheasants,
who lived In the branches of the pines,
fluttered near, the field mouse put her
head out of her door and they all
peeked Inquisitively at the pair In tho
The two clasped each other In n
long embrace. Then the hunter seized
the cord of the bell and called up to
"Little bell, you have brought us to
gether; now you shall tell our happi
ness to tho wood."
Then tho little boll in the cupola of
the chapel glittered mrrrlly in tho sun
nnd swung tirelessly back nnd forth,
letting her clear voice pierce deep Into
Fiom tho steeples of tin? suroundlng
vlllnges rang tho chimes of tho hauty
church bells. But not one of them sang
so Joyfully as the little fot gotten bell
In the woods.
Tho St. Pnul Judgo.
In a certain vlllnge which rejoiced In
the possession of only one lawyer, an
action was commenced before Justice
S., nnd W., the local attorney, was re
tained by the plaintiff. The defendant
employed counsel from the county seat,
but the return dny came and no lawyer
appeared. Defendant, In distress, wns
relating his woes to n gioup of Idlers on
the lookout for fun and mischief, whoji
a stranger appeared wearing a suit of
black, with silk hat and gold-headed
cane. This was one A., a "tree peddler"
from a neighboring town a fellow of
much versatility and acumen, and
withnl considerable of a wag. Some
one of the group, seeing sport ahead,
told the defendant that A., was a Judge
X., a great lawyer from St. Paul, and
that If the Judge could be prevailed
upon to take his case victory was pure.
To earn' out tho Joke the defendant
was Introduced to the pseudo Judge, nnd
explaining the sltuntlon besought his
aid. A. condescendingly replied that,
although he had long since ceased to
practice In these Inferior courts, he ap
preciated the hard situation of his
would-be client, und would consent to
take his defense. When ushered Into
the presence of the court he wns Intro
duced to his honor ns Judge X., of St.
Paul. S., highly elated at the honor of
having such eminent cousel appear In
his court, at once called the case.
A. arose, made a motion to dismiss
and argued with great pomposity and
at considerable length, quoting pre
tended decisions of the supremo court
of the United Stntes und the state of
Minnesota, referring to Blnckstone and
every other writer of whom he had
ever heard, not omitting the most open
nnd shameless flattery of the magis
trate. When he had concluded nnd sat
down, W., the local counsel arose to
reply, whereat the Justice smote tho
table a thundering blow and cried In
a voice pregnant with righteous Indig
nation: "Sit down, sir that Is Judge
X. of St. Paul. Don't you suppose he
knows the law? What do you mean by
attempting to contradict him? This
case will be dismissed."
Walking on tho Halrth.
The sidewalks of Marlon, Va., were
once paved with Irregular slabs quar
ried from suroundlng cliffs; so, also,
were the hearths (provlncally denomin
ated "halrth")' in that district's cab
ins. One day a prairie schooner from
"Calllny," evidently containing one of
the Indigenous, prolific families of the
"tar-heel" state, passed through town,
en route to the railroad station. They
were unquestionably, planning to mi
grate to the "wild nnd woolly west. "for
the much-needed battcrment of their
condition, upbuilding of their fortune
and expansion of their cramped lives.
White-hnlred children, of all sizes,
peered from the uplifted edges of the
time-smirched bod-quilt which canopied
them. The patriot th, still In life's prime,
swung from the driver's seat, with
slouch hat far back upon his head, and
proceeded to stretch his lank limbs In a
"free-and-easy" stroll through Main
street, followed by on ungainly lad, a
younger edition of himself. They left
a snuff-stained woman, with a pipe in
mouth, nnd a freckled, barefoot boy,
with sagging features, to steer, through
our rare'y crowded thoroughfare, their
"moonshine wehlckle" nnd Its ill-assorted
team, a mud-bank ox and a brin
dled, raw-boned "nng."
But, astonished by the shop-window
marvels, pater famllias soon paused till
the wagon hove within hniling distance,
then, to the amusement of bystanders,
cried out, with stentorian tones: "O,

A Tolling Climax.
An amateur play writer once sub
mitted a piny to Tootle, the actor.
"What I want," f-ald Tootle, "is a blight
short play!' "How do you mean, a
short bright drama?" asked the author.
"Well, something with what the Ameri
cans call snap a thing with a point In
It. I don't care whether It Is farce, com
edy, or drama. If It has effective situa
tions and good telling climaxes." "Can
you give me an Idea of the sort of play
you mean?" said the budding author.
"Oh, yes," said Tootle. "I remember
one of the shortest nnd certainly the
best play of Its kind imaginable; it was
so direct, you know, and yet left so
much to the Imagination. It was in one
act. When the curtain went up two
persons were discovered on a sofa; one
was a pretty young woman, the other
a nice young man; they embrnced each
other silently; neither of them, you un
derstand, snld a word. Then a door
opened at the back and a traveler en
tered. He wore an overcoat and carried
an umbrella. You could tell at once by
his manor, and without looking at the
program that he was the husband of
the young woman; nt least that would
be the Inference of every Intelligent
playgoer present. The husband took off
his coat, laid nslde his umbrella, and
drew from his breast pocket a heavy
Colt's revolver. In the midst of n silent
embrace of the hero and heroine he
fired. The young woman fell dead. He
fired again, nnd the young man was
similarly disposed of. Then the traveler
came forward, put on n pair of eye
glnsses, and contemplated his sanguin
ary work. "Great heavens!" he ex
claimed; 'I am on the wrong floor!' "
An Irish laborer having received his
snlnry. strutted into the bar of a fash
ionable hotel one day and cnlled for a
cocktail, throwing down a quarter on
the counter. The barkeeper hnnded
him his drink nnd took the coin ringing
It upon the cash register. Mike looked
at him. "Well." says he, "don't Ol git

cents for all mixed drinks," replied the
