"Nor I," said Sophy. "I am wedded to art," continued the first B[H'uki'r. "And I to literature," •aid tho second. "And I to science," galJ tho third. The combined ages of these damsels would have fallen several years short of the allotted three score and ten, hut if each speaker had seen seventy summers she could not have spoken with more decision.  Tliey were all young, they were all rich, they were all pretty, so that the chance^ were against the above resolution being fulfilled, even in this Nineteenth ceutury, when civilization has run to seed and brides are scarcer than they used to be, and the votaries of science and art and literature more numerous.  Sophy and Graoe were sisters, Enid was their friend. Grace was the eldest, Enid the youngest, of the three. The Bisters were lx>th tall, fine girls, with dark eyes and hair and thick, white complexions, smooth and spotless as marble. Grace was beautiful, Sophy handsome; Grace was the paler, her features more delicately cut, her eyes softer. Sophy wns the more vivacious, her eyes iirighter, her smile tnore animated, tier laugli merrier.  Enid was not the least like her friends; she  wus  small and very fair, with blue eyes and a (piantity of pale golden hair, most of which was coiled into a crown on the top of lier head, and tho remainder curled about her forehead. She dresneil in thu aesthetic style, and was one of th« very few who can do bo with impunity.  Max I/'slie, brother to Sophy and 'Irace, wjis hopelessly in love with her, bijt he waa a lawyer, while Enid was the brute of .irt, and what have law and art .11 common with each other? "Men are ho prosaic," said lCnid. "And no stupid," said Sophy. "And so wicked," said Grace. We'll have none of them," said the  »iris, 1 have a plan, iistvti," said id. "We three will go away to a onely isle—I don't moan a desert island —but to Alderney.oronoof the Orkneys  >r to tho Isle of Man"--  "No, not to Man, we will have nothing » do with Man; let us go to one of the Channel isles, there are no men there, at least, only a few oflioers—aliout one to twenty girls," interrupted Sophy.  "To the Channel isles be it ¿lien; wo will take a house for threo months, and we will make a solemn vow not a man shall cross the threshold from the day we enter till the day we leave," continued Enid.  "Carried, mem. con.," cried the sisters, and a fortnight later saw them settled in a large house overlooking one of tho loveliest of the Jersey bays.  There had been obstacles to overcome in the form of protesting fathers and scandalized mothers, but the proposed exclusion of the stronger sex pacified the fathers,, and the fact that Enid's old nurse, a veritable duenna, was to make one of the party allayed all maternal fears, and in tho end the young people got their own way, as young |>eople mostly do nowadays.  The first month passed away without anything more exciting than n thunder Storm occurring. The three aspirants'to celilmcy led a very Simple life. They breakfasted at 0, dined at 1, had tea when they felt inclined and supped at 8. In the mornings the bride of art sketched from nature or painted in tier studio, the bride of science shut herself up in the library with a skeleton and studied medicine, while the bride of literature lay in a hammock and evolved the plot of a three volume novel which was to take the world by storm.  On Sundays they drove into St. Helier to church, where they attracted so much attention that after the second Sunday people began to call upon them. They were prepared for this contingency, and Racliel, Enid's nurse, met all visitors with i^very solemn face and the same information, namely, "that the ladies were at home, but tliey did not intend to receive visitors during their stay in the tSlaud."  This reply did its intended work; in a little place like Jersey it soon reached the ears of everybody who was anybody, and, as few people cared to be snubbed in this style, the besiegers retired and the besieged were left in pcacu.  No doubt they were delighted to have gained this victory, though their shouts of triumph seemed to grow weaker weekly.  "We won't receive men, so we can't receivo women," was their first watchword; at the end of a fortnight this was changed to:  "We can't receive men, so we won't receive women:" at the end of a month it was:  "We would receive both, but they won't give us a chance;" but this was not spoken; It was not even whispered, but deep dowu in the heart of each maiden it was the secret cry.  Outwardly tho bride of art was as truo to her h|k>usc as when they loft London, tho bride of science was apparently as devoted to study, while the bride of literature was more absorbed than ever In the imaginary world in which she lived.  "This seems rather a long threa months,'' said Grace one day.  "It seems like throe years to me,"said Sophy, yawning.  "It seeins three centuries to me," said Enid, sighing.  "Let us go and climb to the top of that rock we noticed the other day,'and have tea 'on It this afternoon,*' said Grace aloud. "lam sick to death of pen and Ink," she added inwardly.  "Anything for variety," said Enid kloud. "I hate the sight of my paints And brushes," was Iter thought "It wlU be a new sensation; anything  for that," said Sophy; she thought, "If I don't escape from that skeleton t shall become one."  So to the top of the rock they wenti there they drank tea, and from thenc* they Intended to return home as they same, namely, on their ten toes; but to descending from their lofty position Brace fell and hurt her foot so badly she oould not stand.  "I have broken my leg, I think," said Grace.  "Let me see, dear, if you have. Enid and I can put it in splints till we get home," said Sophy, who was anxious to put some of her medical knowledge into  Cctice. The leg was examined, declared ken and deftly set in temporary splints, consisting of sunshades, while fine cambric liandkerchiefs were used for bandages.  Sophy then went back to the house to fetch servants and a sofa on which to carry the sufferer home, and Enid remained to condole with her.  "It ought to feel easier now it is In splints; does it, dear?" she inquired ten' derly.  "No, it is very painful," said Grace, with a little moau. "I hope you have set it straight," she added.  "It isn't set; it Is only in splints to prevent a compound fracture; at present Sophy says it is only a simple fracture but we shall have to have a doctor, Grace. Sophy isn't qualified yet, you know. I wonder if there is a lady doctor in the island?" said Enid.  "If there is I won't have her; I am not going to run tho risk of being lame for life; I don't believe in lady doctors," said Grace decidedly.  "Nor do I, dear; you are quite right, and I only hope Sophy will agree with you," said Enid.  At first Sophy was not at all inclined to do thi& She suggested scouring the island for a lady doctor, since a doctor Grace would have; but her tyster's pale face and gentle moans soon decided her to send for a certain Dr. May, to whom they had an introduction in case of illness.  The letter of introduction was from their brother, and if Sophy could have read the contents it would certainly never have reached its destination. As it was sealed she could not do so, and it had the effect of bringing Dr. May very quickly to the patient.  "It is a simple fracture of the tibia," said Sophy, as she ushered Dr. May to the patient's room.  If it was (and Dr. May did not contradict her diagnosis) his treatment was peculiar. He first of all spent about half an hour in bathiug tho swollen white foot in cold water, then ho bandaged it, then lie ordered the bandages to be chanced whenever they got dry, and then, promising to come the first thing tho next morning, lie prepared to leave.  "Won't you set it today?" said Sophy.  "Oh, dear, no; it is much too swollen. I shan't bo able to set it for some daya. How long are you staying here?"  "Oh, we have another six weeks to stay yet," said Sophy, despondently.  "Well, I will endeavor to cure your sister by then; but I fear she won't be able to wulk for some weeks, though you need not tell her so," said Dr. May.  No sooner was Dr. May gone than Enid, who had not seen him, dashed into Grace's room, all curiosity.  "What is he like, girls?" she demanded eagerly.  '•He is young," said Sophy.  "That is bad," said Enid.  "And very handsome," said Grace.  "That is worse. I wonder if he is married?" said Enid.  "That can't matter to us," said Grace.  "Not in the very least," said Sophy.  "Of course not, dears; only I wondered," said Enid.  Now it is a strange thing, but life became much more interesting to these three young iadies after this accident; and yet it ougiit to have cast a gloom ovev theiu, for it must have been rather a bad case, since Grace required Dr. May'8 attendance twice a day for the first week, and three times on the day he set the tibia and put it into splints. But beforo he did this I10 asked for a second opinion. Ho was a physician—the case was surgical; he would not undertake to set the broken bone unless a surgeon were present. So a certain Mr. Ford, an army surgeon, was called in, not without some scruples; but Dr. May represented it was a necessity, and necessity absolved them from keeping their vow.  "Men are a necessary evil," said Enid.  "They are certainly useful," said Sophy.  "And undoubtedly nice," said Grace but Sotto voce. She dared not utter this sentiment aloud.  Mr. Ford was a little man, who looked to bo about 40; fair, and so full of fun that ho was a welcomo addition to the party. The first week he came twice; after that, though his visits were certainly not of a professional nature, he came every day, and, what was stranger, he sometimes forgot to go to Grace's room at all, though she was the ostensible causo of his visits.  Grace bore her imprisonment with the patience of a saint. True, her room was a large, airy one, and commanded a lovely view of tho deep bluo sea, with the romantic little bay at tho foot of the heather clad sloi>o on which tho house atood. Still, one would have thought •ho might liavo found it dull. On the contrary, her beautiful face wore a hap. pier smile than had ever gladdened it; her eves were bright with a light that had hitherto been strange to them; her reveries, always frequent, were more frequent than ever now, and if the others asked what she was dreaming of she only answered, "Nothing," and blushed crimson. "Nothing" is sometimes a fruitful subject  "We have only three more weeks to be here," said Enid one day. "How dreadfull" said Sophy. "It is too sad," said Grace. "I am truly thankful," said Entd. "I am sick of it"  "Enidl" exclaimed Grace in amazement  "Enid!" echoed Sophy In horror. "So I am. Slow is no name for it I wish I could break my leg, or get my soul into a scrape, or—or my body either, I should not care which, so long as it required some one to help me out; but I would not have Dr. May or Mr. Ford, I can tell you, stupid things. I won't stop at home this afternoon and pick gooseberries, that I won't; so there! It is a •-h-a-a-m-e, and I shall go to Ra-a-a-chel," and, to the amazement of the sisters, Enid, whose temper was supposed to be angelic, stamped her little foot, and, crying like a naughty child, rushed out of the room to RacheL  "I wont stand it any longer, Rachel. I won't; I hate picking gooseberries."  "Why, bless the child, who wanta her tof «aid RacheL  "They do—Grace and Sophy. I have tp dg it every afternoon. I ha«« done It  for three weeks."  "Why, mv deal Mis* Enid, there an no gooseberries to pick; they were all finished before we came."  "Don't be an idiot Rachel! A woman of your age must know what picking gooseberries means. 1 am worn out with it. I have shrunk nearly an inch ainee we have been here; and no wonder, It la such dreadfully hard work. First I have to chaperon Grace and Dr. May Id the morning, then have to chaperon Sophy and Mr. Ford in the afternoon, and now they have both taken to coining together in the afternoon; and how can I be in two rooms at once, I should like to know? A dragon could not do it, and won't Why can't they ask their brother over here to help me? Nasty, selfish things! And you are a stupid old thing, Rachel, not to have thought of It; and hate you, and I hate those girls, and horrid Dr. May, and nasty little Mr. Ford. And oh, dearl what a dreadfully bad temper I am in."  And here Enid threw horself on to Rachel's lap and sobbed bitterly.  But, though penitent, her red eye« quite precluded the idoa of resuming her uncongenial work; so in her absence Dr. May and Mr. Ford carried Grace and her sofa out on to the lawn, and there the four spent their afternoon.  Enid did not join her friends till the gentlemen were gone.  "I am so sorry you are not happy hero, Enid, darling," said Grace gently.  "I am quite happy," said Enid.  "I am afraid you are not well, dear Enid. Would you like to speak to Mr. May?' said Grace.  "Or to Mr. Ford?" said Sophy.  "I'll never speak to either of them again, if you don't mind, Sophy; lam perfectly well."  "Oh!" said tho sisters.  "I was only dreadfully cross, and now I am dreadfully sorry, so please now don't talk any more about it."  "Wo won't; wo have something to tell you; have bad a letter'from Max, and he wants to come over hero for a few days; he says he must have our signatures to some documents, so we want to know if you will consent to his coming it will be breaking our rule that no man is to cross the' threshold, but, as he is our brother, it won't matter to us."  "And, as a rule has been broken every day for tho last threo weeks, it won't matter to me," said Enid.  "So it has," said Grace; "I never thought of that, but then a physician is a necessity."  "So is a surgeon," said Sophy.  "So is a lawyer sometimes," said Enid  And so the lawyer came and there was no more temper.  The evening lie arrived Dr. May and Mr. Ford stayed to supper.  "May, how long do you intend to keep this game up?" said the lawyer as tliey smoked a pipe after the girls were gone to bed.  "What game?" asked Mr. Ford.  "The simple fracture of the tibia, I believe it is called," said the lawyer, going into peala of laughter, in which both his companions joined.  "Poor old May, she'll never forgive you, my dear boy," said Mr. Ford, as soon as he could speak.  "And Sophy will never forgive you, Ford," said May.  The doctors looked very cast down at this.  "Need they ever know the truth?" asked Dr. May.  Not unless you like to tell them; at the same time, if you could manage to take those 6plints off Grace's log tomorrow, u-e might have some picnics while I am here; I can only stay a week. If you two can undertake to manage that I'll undertake not to reveal tho truth with regard to Grace's sprained ankle—I beg Sophy's pardon—fractured tibia."  On this basis some excursions were inaugurated for tho next few days, the splints were removed, and tho patient, with Dr. May's assistance, managed to get in and out of carriages, and wander over sandy beaches and heather clad cliffs with wonderful grace and ease.  Tho week made itself wings, it flew so quickly. But art was neglected, sci-enco suubbod and literature forgotten, while the faithless brides caught shrimps and sand eels, scrambled over rocks and lunched in caves, drove through shady lanes mid rested on moss clsul cliffs, and were as happy as mortals could l>c. At last the day of reckoning came. "Sophy," said Grace one night, "truth is stranger than fiction." "Yes, dear, I know that." "So I have given up fiction, I mean literature."  "They are not always synonymous, but have you really done so?"  I have, and, what i» more. Dr. May has asked me to marry him, and—and I didn't say no."  "Oh, Grace, how dreadful! but it Is strange, too, for Mr. Ford asked me the sarno question, and I said yes."  "Oh, Sophy, and you have forsaken science!"  Yes, my love has -urned to hatred; I hate science, and I love some one else. Let us go and break it to Enid."  Accordingly two white robed figures crossed the landing to Enid's room,  "Enid, we have something dreadful to confess; wo have given up literature and science, we have broken our vows, and we are engaged to be married; isn't it terrible?"  Dreadful! I have done lietter than that; Max has persuaded uie that law and art were made for each other, that one is nothing without the other; so. instead of wedding art myself. I am going to unite urt to Max."  And you will be jur sister after nil. Wo are so glad." Then there waa a great deal of kissing. "Good-by to literaturol I am happy, and happy women never write," said Gruce.  •Good-by to science! I have found a betUt bridegroom." said Sophy.  Au revoir, art! We shall meet again •0011; but, nil the same, girls, we are forsworn," said Enid.  "It is Grace's fault; if she hadn't fractured her tibia all this would mtver have happened," said Sophy.  Grace smiled, and Enidstifled a laugh, and Sophy never knew till she was married that her diagnosis had lieen incorrect. and then she was uot allowed to forget it easily.  And the three forsworn old maidf.be-came three faithful wives, aiul art and literature and science sought their brides elsewhere.—New York Press.  BEADLe IN CANADA.

He Tells a Lot of Very InterNUag TUtfi About the Maritime Prevteeea, (Special Correspondent».] . .  Qucbbo, Sept. Late ta July I fast steamer front Bartoo to AnnapoUi,X.8., to try the climate ot thamartttma jwevteiw daring the heated tenn. Thao*» lb» <* steamers uaoally maka tfae nm.ia tiiirtp hours or lees, and wheo the wcattter lijta no voyage could be wore delightful thantfol over the blue water» of M«nehn-m hay and the North Atlantic and op tbe Bey <* Fundy. Morning in the last named bratfkt the usual fog of the region, but «boot 10 a. m. it suddenly liftpd and curled üp inte light and fleecy clouds, which sailed away over the green hills; then all the Wfld beeatf of Fundy's shores stood revealed.  The phenomenon of this bay to tbe hifli tide. Moving up the narrow entrance to Annapolis basin while the tide was going out, the steamer struggled and groaned through nil her timbers, and with every Ouuoe of steam on gained bot slowly against the corren t; bat onoe inside the water was as placid as that ot an Inland lake. At the west eod of the basin is Dlgby, at the east end Annapolis; all tbe shores are dotted with Ashing hamlets and neat farm houses, while back of them rises the land, first in gentle swells, ot meadow, then in moré and mors abrupt! h!U% thick set with dark green pines, to tfae roóky ridges which form the backbone of Nova Scotia on one side and the crest of the narrow peninsula on the other. The sky tono» without a cloud, the air cool and bracing: delicate ones among the passengers And overcoats and wraps agreeable, but most are In ecstasios over the delightful ooolness, and full of activity.  The tide is at its lowest, and one notes with astonishment that the wharves are from thirty to sixty feet high, that broad arms <4 the bay extend for miles into the land, and in them only black mud is seen, and that fishing boats, and even good sized schooner*, lie far inland on the mud, loading and unloading, at wharves which appear decidedly out of placa. But at high tide tbe craft will float again and the wharves prove none too high. At Annapolis we have to climb by an Incline-some thirty feet to the top of tho wharf, and there we find the true registry of the tides. Many books have given accounts of rises of one hundred feet or more; in truth, the highest tides iu this famous bay have never exceeded sixty feet, and the average may be placed at forty.  Among the many interesting phenomena produced by the high tides of Fundy, the most famous is the so called "Bote," which tpay be seen In many places, but shows most, perhaps, in tbe PeUfccodUc river of New Brunswick, on which 1 witnessed it at tbe city of Monctoa. It may be briefly defined as a high tide rushing in like a nearly unri^it wall, and without any preliminary swell, over a low tide going out The philosophy of it to this: The Bay of Fundy narrows steadily to its oastern end, and so the momentum of the vast volume of incoming tide ia concentrated and forced through the narrow passages of the connecting inlets as if it were "shot/* from the noxzle of a fire engine. As the entire force of the water In the broad mouth of the Petiteodiac is retained by the water in the narrowest passages up the stream, it must gain in swiftness all that it loses in width, so there is no time for the "tide to turn," as the phrase is; Just when tbe ebb is complete, the stream at its lowest and nearly all its channel a bed of mud, the high tide comes rushing in.  Where the river channel is wide tbe tide volume sinks to something like a swell; bat at tbe next narrows It dashes madly forward as if eager to tear away the rocky banks, and thus raging and subsiding alternately It rushes on till it spreads and is lost in the broad basin above Moncton. Just below tbat city the Potltcodi».. bends like a U; the projecting point is barely above tide, and at ebb there is very little water running down. To a visitor at that time the scene appears an illusion. At tbe wharf large vessels lie on tbe mud, apparently ten feet above the water level, yet twenty-five feet below the wharf; a trifling stream flows down tho miildle of the channel, and beyond it lios a vu:,t oxpoubo of slimy mud. As one looks across the green point he sees a white foam, and soon the warning shout is raised, "Here she comes!"  The next minute it sweeps around the bend, a turbid torrent six feet or more in height, and with a forward slope of but three or four feet, dashing on as if an Immense reservoir had broken looso and its contents were flowing down a steep and narrow flume. At our feet the little stream still ripples gently down, and « here it meets the incoming flood it seems to merely glide under it; a few minutes more and tho mud flats aro covered, tbe channel is filled from bank to bank, and the torrent is dashing madly, against the railroad bridge half a mile above. In an hour the vessels at the wharf are afloat; two hours later one has to climb up to their decks instead of down. The Petitcodiao is once more a navigable stream, and vessels of 2,000 tons burden come up to Moncton as easily as up tho East river to upper New York. Similar phenomena op the Scandinavian coasts are described by Jean Ingelow.  Why is it callod the "Borof" Apparently nobody knows. It has been called so tram the earliest settlement of the country—that's tbe only answer any one can give. Perhaps because the iurusliing water "bores" its way through the narrow channels, or, as a pun* stor suggests, it is a "bore" to the owner ot tho light craft caught in it It certainly 1% and something worse than a "bore"—destruction. Not long ago a good sired schoonw was caught unprepared, swept up against a railroad bridgo and badly wrecked.  Annapolis, where the Boston steamers land their passengers, is a charming little town, and Annapolis valley, through which the railroad bears us towards Halifax, is one of tho noted valleyB of the world. Both axe attractive in themselves, and both have special historic interest to Americans, for the whole region was settled and improved 100 years ago by "our misguided countrymen, tbe Tories," as tho patriota of 1770-83 would have said—by tho "United Empire loyalists," as Nova Scotiau histories say. But be their oorrect tltlo what it may (and nobody now cares much), they were au enterprising set of fellows, and their lot was cast in a goodly loud, for this is tho richest and probably most fertile part of rural Nova Scotia.  TI10 train güilos through an ever varying 'panorama of rural loveliness. Sometimes tho bordering hills close in and leave but a narrow vale like a canyon in the Rocky mountains; then they reoede and finally disappear, and from the car window we look over a pleasing expanse of dark green meadow, tasteful grovo and farm bouse, thrifty orchard and New England-like village, while every » hero aro well kept potato fields, pastures croen and red with clover, or fields yellow with heavy beaded grain.
