He was whistling over his work, careless, from long- custom, of the solemn significance of the letters Iiti was cutting in the while marble. The June sun was nearly at the end pf the day's journey, sinking slowly to rest upon the bosom of the broad Atlantic, whose waves washed the shores of the little seaport town of Monkton. A stranger, handsomely dressed in gray, with large, lustrous brown eyes, came to the fence that was around the yard where the stone, cutter worked, and read the lettering almost completed, upon the tomb stone HIRAM GOLDBY, Aged n LOST AT SKA, JANUARY, lWi. The last six was nearly completed. A strange pallor gathered for a mo ment upou the stranger's face, and then he drew a long, deep breath, and said Is not ten years a long time to be cutting letters on a tomb-stone, friend ?' Eh, sir?' The stone-cutler looked, shaded his eyes with his brown baud, as he turned his face to the setting sun. 'This is 1S76,' was the grave reply, and Hiram Golby must have been ten years under the waves.' 'Well, sir, that's the queitiou is he there?' 'Is he there? Your stone tells us he is, and has been there for ten years." 'Yes, sir, so it does so it does. And yet she has ordered it. She came over a week or so back with a worried look upon her sweet lace that I have never seen anything but patient in ten long years, and she said to me 'you may cut a stone, haw,' she savs, 'and put it up in the I church-yard, aud I don't want to see it. Ill pay you whatever you choose to ask, Davy,' Rhe says; 'but he's not dead, and don't want a tombstone.' 'Lor, mum,' says I, 'he'd a turned up all these years if lie was not dead.' Hut "he shook her pretty head, the prettiest I ever seen, sir, and said she: 'My heart never told me that he was dead, Davy, and I'll never believe it till my heart tells me so." 'His sweetheart?' questioned the stranger. 'His wife, sir his loving, faithful wife, that's had poverty, and loneli ness, aud misery, her full share, and might ha' bettered herself.' 'How was that ?' 'Mr. Miles, sir. the richest ship owner hereabouts; he waited pa tiently seven long years, trying to win her. Then he said that she was free even if Hiram came back.' 'Enoch Arden,' muttered the stranger. 'What did you say, sir?' 'Nothing, nothing. "What answer did the widow make, Mr. Miles? If Hiram's dead,' said she. 'I'm his faithful widow while I live. If Hiram's living, I'm his failhl'ul wife. Maybe you are from the city, sir, and have heard the storv of our Pearl?' 'What story is tha't?' 'Well, sir," it's been told many times, more particularly in the last year, but you're welcome to what I know of it. There, that G is done, and I'll leave the Scripture text till morning. If you'll come to the gateway and take a seat on some of the stones, I'll tell you, that is, if you care to hear it.' 'I do care,' was the grave reply ; 'I want very much to hear the story.' 'Maybe you're some kin to the Pearl of Monkton that's what they call Mrs. Goldby hereabouts. It's a matter ot thirty-three years back, sir, that there was a wreck oil' Monk ton rocks, that you can see from here, sir, now tide's low. Cruel rocks they are, and many a wreck they've seen, the more the pity. You 6ee them, sir?' 'I see them.' 'Well, sir, this one wreck, thirty three years ago, there was nothing washed ashore but a bit of a girl baby three or four years old, with a skin like a lily leaf, and great black eyes. Hiram Golby found her on the rocks. He was a boy of twelve years, strong and tall, and he carried the child in his arms to his mother. You may see the cottage, sir, the second white one on the side ol the hill.' 'I see it.' 'Well, Hiram look the baby there, aud Mrs. Golby was the same as a mother to her a good woman God bless her soul the widow Goldby.' 'Is she dead, then?' 'Aye, air, six years agone. The baby I was telling you of, sir, talked a foreign lingo, and was dressed in rich clothes, that must have cost a power of money. Rut never would Hiram or the widow sell them, put ting them up carefully in case the child was ever looked for. She was that pretty, sir, and that dainty, that everybody called her Pearl, though she was not like our girls, but afraid, always deadly afraid of the sea. I have seen her clench her mite of a hand and strike at it, for she had a temper in her, though nothing to harm. 'When Hiram made his first voy age, for they were all sea-taring men hereabouts, and there was nothing for a lad to do but ship, the Pearl was just a little washed-out lily, a-fretting until became home again. And it was so whenever he went, for they were sweet-hearts from the first time he nestled her baby face on his breast, when he picked her up from the wreck. She was sixteen when they were married, as near as we could guess; Hiram was a man of twenty-four. She prayed him stay at home then, and he stayed a year, but he fretted for the sea, and he went again, thinking, I s'posc, that his wife wonld get used to it, as all wives hereabouts must do. But she never did never. It was just pitable to see her go about, white as a corpse, when Hiram went away, never looking at the sea without the shudder like a death chill. All through the war it was just awful, for Hiram enlisted ou board a man- o'-war, and Pearl wa just a shadow when he came home the last time." 'After the war?' 'Yes, sir; but he made no money of any account, and so he went again, nfter staying home a long spell. Well, he never came back. 'Twasn't uo manner of use a telling Pearl he was lost ; she'd just shake her pretty head and say: 'He'll come back".' Not a mite of mourning would she wear, even after his own mother gavehini up and put on black; for, sir, it stands to reason he's dead years ago.' 'It looks so.' 'Of course it docs; nobodv else doubts it but her. Old Mrs. Colby's last words were 'I'm going to meet Hiram,' and they say the dying know. But even then they didn't mske Pearl think so. She wore mourning for her who had been the only mother she kuowed of, but uo weedp. Weeds was for widows, she said, and she wasn't a widow.' 'But the stone?' 'Well, sir, I'm coming to that. A year ago, sir, a fine gentleman from France came here hunting for a child lost on this coast. He'd heard of Pearl by happen-chances. if there is such, and camo here. When he saw the clothes, he just fainted like a woman.' 'She was related, then?' The stranger's voice was husky, but the sea air was growing chill. 'Her father, sir.' 'He took her awaA ?' 'He tried to. He told her of a splendid home he had in New York, for he'd followed his wife and child, sir, to n citv they had never reached. He was rich and lone v. He begged his child to go, but she would not. 'Hiram will come here for me,' she said, 'and he will find me where he letl me.' 'On what has he lived?' 'Sewing, sir, mostly. The cottage was old Mrs. Colby's, and bless you, Pearl did not eat much more ihan a bird, and her dresses cost i next to nothing. Hut there's- no i denying she was very poor very, and yet the grand house and big) fortune never tempted her. So her ' father came on and on to see her, until April. And he died, sir, and i lett our Pearl all his fortune and the grand house in New York. Hut i she'll not go, sir; she'll die here, waiting for Hiram, who'll never come.' The stranger lifted his face that had been half hidden in his hand and said : 'There was a shipwreck in the 1'acilic Ocean, Davy, years and years ago, and one man only was saved saved, Davy, by savages, who made him a slave, the worst of slaves. But one day this sailor saved the life of the chiefs daughter, who was in the coils of a huge snake, and the chief released him. More than that, he gave him choice spices and woods, and sent him aboard the first passing ship. So the sailor lauded in a great city, sold his pres ents and put the gold in safe keep ing. Then he traveled until he reached the seaport town where he was born, and coming there at sun set, heard the story of his life from the lip of a in'an cutting his tomb stone. Not a word spoke Davy. Stand ing erect, he seized an immense sledge hammer, aud with powerful blows from strong, uplifted arms, dashed the marble into fragments. Then, panting with exertion, he held out his brawny hand to the stranger a stranger no longer. 'I've done no better work in my life than I've done in the last five minutes, Hiram. Go home, man, and make Pearl's heart glad. She don't need it, Hiram she don't need it. You asked me about the stone. The neighbors drove her to ordeiing it, twitting her that now she was rich she grudged the stone to her husband's memory. So she told me to cut it, but says, 'Don't put dead upon it, Davy put lost at sea; for Hiram's lost, but he'll be found aud come back to me.' She never look ed at it, Hiram, never. And there's not an hour, nor hasn't been for ten years, that, she hasn't been looking lor you to come back. Co to her, man, and the Lord's blessing be upon both of you.' So grasping the hard, brown hand, Hiram Golby took the path to the little white cottage in which he had been born forty-five years before. The sun had set and the darkness was gathering, but a little gleam of light streamed from the widow of his cottage. He drew near softly and stood on the seat of the porch, looking over the half curtain into the neat but poor sitting-room. 'It was not the grand house Pearl's heritage in New York, but Pearl heiself was there. A slender! woman, with pale, sweet face, and black hair smoothly banded and gathered into rich hraidn at the back of her shapely head. Her dreaa was a plain dark one, with white nifties, cull's and an apron. She had been sewing, but her work was put aside, and presently she came to the open window aud drew aside the curtain. She did not see the tail figure drawn closely against the wall in the uarrow porch, but her dark eyes looked mournfully toward the sea, glimmering in the half light. 'My darling!' she whispered, 'are you dead, and has your spirit come to take mine where we shall part no more?' Only the u ash of the waves below answered her. Sighing softly, she said: 'Is my darling coming? I feel him so near me, I could almost grasp him.' She stretched out her arms over the low window sill, and a low voice answered near: 'Pearl! Pearl 1' The arms that had so long grasped only empty air were filled then, as Hiram stood under the low window. 'Do not move love,' she whisper ed, pressing her soft lips to his; 'I always wake when yon move.' 'But now,' he said, 'you are already awake. See, Pearl, your trust. was Heaven-given. It is myself, your fond, true husband, little one, who ' 11 ill liai'At lnittn iaii .1 rm in ' J" til I 1.4TI J VII &4llil 'It is true! You have come!' she cried at last, bursting into a torrent of happy tears. M knew yon were not dead. You could not be dead, and my heart not tell me.' It was long before they could think of any thing but the happiness of n reunion after flic many years of separation, but at last, drawing Pearl closer, Hiram whispered: 'I walked from T , love, aud am enormously hungry. And Pearl's merry laugh chased the last shadows from her happ3 face, and she bustled about the room preparing supper. 'Supper for two!' she cried, glee fully. The grand house in New York is tenanted by its owners, and Hiram goes to sea no more; but in the summer time two happy people come for a quiet month to the white cottage at Monkton, and havcalway to listen to Davy's tale of the even ing when he was cutting Hiram Colby's tombstone, and ended by smashing it into atoms. Tor.' is the invariable ending of the tale, 'Pearl was right, and we were wrong, all of us; for Hiram Golby was lost at sea, sure enough, but he was not dead, and he came to her faithful love at she always said he would.' IISTAPIIA. How II' Toole HIh YnrntloB unil tVluit Clime of It. Now in the sixth month of the reign ol the good caliph, it was so that Mustapha said : "I am wearied with much work: thought, care and worry have worn me out ; I need repose, for the hand of exhaustion is upon me, and death even now lieth at the door.'" And he calleih his physician, who felt bin pulse and looked upon his tongue and said : "Twodollahs!" (For this was the oath by which all physicians swore.) "Of a veritv thou must have rest. Flee unto the valley of quiet and close thine eyes in dreamful rest; hold back thy brain from thought and thy hand from labor, or you will be a candidate for the asylum in three weeks." And he heard him and went out aud put the business in the hands ol the c!erk, and went away to rest in the valley of quiet. And he went to his Uncle Hen's, whom he had not seen for lo! these fourteen years. Now, his Uncle Ben wa3 a farmer and abode in the valley of rest, and the mountain of repose rose round about him. And he was rich and well favored, and strong as an ox. and healthy as an onion crop. Oltime? he boasted unto his neighbor that there was not a lazy bono in his body, and he swore that he hated a lazy man. And Mustapha wist not that il was so. Hut when he reached his Uncle Ben's they received him with great joy, and placed before him a supper of homely viands, well cooked and piled upou ids plate like the wreck of a box car. And when he could not eat it all they laughed him to scorn. And after supper they sat up with him and talked with him about re lative whereof he had never in all his life so much as heard. And he answered their questions at ran dom, and lied unto them profess ing to know Uncle Ezra and Aunt Bethesda, and once he said be had a letter from Uncle George last week. Now they all knew that Uncle George was shot in a neighbor's sheep pen three years ago, but Mes tapha wist not that it was so, and he was sleepy and only talked to fill up the time. And then they talked politics to him and he hated poli tics! So about one o'clock in the morning they sent him to bed. Now the spare room wherein he slept was right under the roof, aud there were ears aud bundles of ears of seed corn hung from the rafters, and he bunged his eye with the same, and he hooked his chin in the festoons of dried apples, and shook dried herbs and seed3 down his back as he walked along, lor it wac dark. And when he sat up in bed in the night he ran a scythe in his ear. And it was so that four boys slept with him for the bed was wide. And they were restless and slum bered crosswise and kicked, so that Mustapha slept not a wink that night, neither closed his eyes. And about the fourth hour after midnight his uncle Hen smote him on his buck, and spake unto him, saying "Awake, arise, rustle out of this and wash your face, for the liver and bacon is fiied aud the breakfast waiteth. You will find the well down at the other end of the cow iot. Take a towel with you." When l hey .had eaten his uncle Ben spake unto him, saying: "Come, let us stroll around the farm." And they walked about tleveu miles. Aud his uncle Ben sat him down upou a wagon aud taught him how to load hay. Then they drove into the barn and he taught him how to unload It. Then he girded up their loins and walked four miles, even into the forest, and his uncle Ben taught him how to chop wood, and they walked back to supper. And the morning and evening were the first day, and Mustapha wished that he was dead. And after supper his utile Ben spake once more and said : "Come, let us Have some fun." And so they hooked up a team and drove nine miles down to Belcher's brauch, where there was a hop. Aud they danced until the second hour in the morning. When the next day was come, which wasn't long, for already the night was far spent, his uncle Ben took him out and taught him how to make rail leuce. And that night there was a wedding, aud they dan ced and made merry, and drank and ate, aud when thev went to bed at three o'clock Mustapha prayed that death might come to htm be fore breakfast time. But breakfast bad an early start i . . .i t. . -i , T-r . cle Hen marveled that it was so early. And lie lighted ms pipe and sat up for an hour, and told Musta pha all about the fortv he bought last spring of old Mosoy Stinger to finish out that north half, aud about a new calf (hat was foaled last spring. And when Mustapha went to bed that morning he bethought him of, a dose of strychnine he had with him, and he said his prayers wearily and he ate. But the youngest boy was rest less that night, and kicked all the poison out of him in less than ten seconds. Aud in the morning, while it w.as yet night, they ate breakfast. And his Uncle Ben took him out and taught him how to dig a ditch. Anil when evening was come, there was a revival meeting at Eb- enezer Methodist church, and they all went. And there were three regular preachers, and two exhor- lers and a Baptist evangelist. Ami when midnight was come they went home, aud sat up and talked over - the meeting until bedtime. Now when Mustapha was at home, lie left his desk at the fifth hour in the afternoon, and he went to bed at the third hour after sunset, and he rose not until the sun waj high in the heavens. So the next day when his Uncle Ben would take him out iuto the field and show him how to make a pos and rail fence. Mus tapha would swear at him. and stnoto i 'in with an axe helve, and lied ami got himself home. And Mustapha sent for his physi cian aud cursed him. And he said he was tired to death, and he turned his face to the wall and died. So Mustapha was gathered to his fath ers. And his physician and his friends mourned and said : "And he did not rest soon enough. He tarried at his desk too long.' And his Uncle Ben, who camo in to attend the. funeral, and had to do all'his weeping out of one eye. be cause his other was blacked half way down to his chin, said it was a pity, but Mustapha was too awiul ly lazy to live, and bad no get up about him. But Mustapha wist not what they said, because he wiis dead. So they divided his property among them, aud said if he wanted a tombstone he might have attended to it him sell while he was alive, because they had no time. Burlington Itmrkeye. A NiUnifis; Horror. Several months ago the grave ol Sat ah Plaits, a young lady who died ot consumption, near Cincinnati. was found disturbed, and an examination showed that Ihe head of the corpse was missing. What led to the dis covery was the finding ot a human jaw-bone by Fred Auer, a farmer, who lived near the county grave yard, some eight miles from the city, where the body was buried. The fact that only the head was taken threw suspicion ou an amateur phre nologist named Gordon Truesdale. Trucsdale occupied a small farm in the vicinity with his wife and a family of lour girls, the oldest not more than eight years old. He was a handsome, broad-shouldered fel low with a fair education but lazy aud s'hittless. His great hobby was phrenology, aud he occasional! lectured on that subject in the coun try school houses. His ambition to possess a collection of skulls was well known in the neighborhood, and the desecration of the PlalLs girl's grave was laid at his door, although he was never openly charg ed with it. About three weeks ago Truesdale went to a physician and asked him if a person could become poisoned in handling a dead body. He received an affirmative reply and appeared to be much troubled. IJe complained to his wife that his nose pained him terribly, aud he believed that he was taking the erysipelas. He began doctoring himself with bread aud milk poullio.es, but with out success. Ills face began to swell rapidly, and in less than three days it aud his head became twice its natural size, and lost all resem blance ol human shape. A physi cian was called in against the wishes of Truesdale. He found the man suueriiig terriuiy. iiks nps were i drawn by the tension of the and writhed themselves awav the teeth in unceasing pain. The cuticle across the bridge of the no-e and over the forehead was so dis tended with the mattery substance underneath that it seemed as it it must burst every moment. The eyes were swollen to bursting from their sockets, and were turned with pain until hardly anything but the whites could be seen. It was evi dent that a terrible poison was slow ly, but 9urely permeating the man's whole system. The physician, after a careful examination of the unwill ing patient, cut opeu his skin from about the center of his nose almost to the roots of the hair, and then made another cnt across the fore head almost from temple to temple. From these incisions there oozed a mass of loathsome, detestable pntre seene, so terrible in its stench that the attendants, save one, ran from the house. Olher incisious were made in different parts of the scalp, from which the hair had been shav ed, and from there this terrible offensive matter oozed constantly, until the swelling was reduced and tbe head and face assumed nearly their nominal size.
