She then wont to the library where she found hiui wait- ing i'or her. Well, she said, seating her- self in the chair he placed for her, 1 am ready to hear what you wish to say- to me."

Good Heavens I shudder to think of it You my pure iutlc lily the wile of a drunkard 1 know you mean well, uncle but it is net as bad as jou think. Richard is one easily influenced lor good or evil and my power over hiui is great. I think I can persuade him lo give up drinking and il I do. you will not re- luse then, and Angela looked up pleadingly. Mr. Forrester answered firmly: juu come lo me and and tell me that lliehard had si'jncd tin: will give my I'u'l and free consent to your union." 1 will do it exclaimed Angela rising. 1 can ;uid will. Richard shal bo saved and you shall yet be proud to see me his and with a face ra diant with the enthusiasm inspired by this noble resolve she swept from the room. God bless muttered the ok gentleman, wiping away a tear. "Any uiiin who eould be unkind to her be a brute. She is an anyel by nature as well ns by name." Richard Walton was waiting for An- gela in a little grove on the outskirts ol her uncle's farm on the evening lul- lowing the conversation. If. was there he had breathed the sweet story of love a week before., and to-night she was lo give Him his final answer. As he paced restlessly to and fro, a slight step rustled the fallen leaves and she stood beside him lovely ns an angel in her white dress arid floating ribbons and his eyes beamed with admiration as he drew her arm in hia and they walked slowly to and fio beneuth ihe trees. She listened attentively to his eloquent pleadings, and then calmly, firmly, for she had nerved herself to the task, said, Richard I will bo frank with you I like you very much, but I cannot'and will not promise to marry you until you swear never to touch a drop of intoxi- cating drink. My husband must have my perfect trust ns well as uiy love, and me i'or speaking so I cannot trust you entirely uutil you break yourself of this habit." Angie he cried in amazement, what do you mean drink Every one. denied it before Nor do I deny it now. some one must have giyeri you a very exag- gerated account of my actions. What is a glass of wine now and then with a friend sen ted to this, but she did not fee) satisfied. Spring ripened into summer, and the usual amusements of a country place filled up all the leisure hours of the young people. Angela and her lover shared in all the frolics, and were (he gayest of thn gay. Angela could find no fault with Richard, although she wa'ched him closely, and, in conse- quence, she grew gay cud cheerful and ceased to think of it at all Not so her unole. With him it was a source of constant anxiety and trouble. One afternoon, when the earth was basking in full glory of June, a party of seekers from the village set out for a secluded spot on the river bank where they proposed bavins? a pic- nic. It was a grand affair. The spot was a pleasant one and the entire party were in the bcai of spirits The dinner spread beneath the trees and among other '-good things was a tine supply of rich .old port wine, which was freely indulged in by the masculine portion of the party. Angela soon saw that Richard was drinking too much, and, Itying her hand on his arm, she said in a tone too low to reach other cars than his: "Rich- ard, beware." Richard, on whom the wine was al- ready beginning to have an unpleasant effect, laughed as he replied' Non- sense, Angie, I hare taken but u drop But, Richard, for my pleaded, "do not drink any mere to- day. Remember your promise." Come, now, little robin, don't turn raven." Angela turned nwao, her cheeks crimson with mortfic.itiony arid tears of disappointment filling her eyes. When the time for departure c.ime she saw that the flushed countencncc and un- naturally bright eyes of her lover ware noticed by others than herself, and her heart swelled wilh indignation and shame. Some of the parly had preferred to return by the river, and as boas wt-rc j easily procured thev sent their carriages i to the villiage and set out on the jour- i Among them were Richard i Riclnr'l wis a oarsman, and soon ihe light bark eon- taming bin betrothed, his sister, and j himself, had left, -ill others far in the i I rear The mjon soon came up, flood- ini; the water with its silver radiance, j and the liny skiff ounfainiiii: our heio j and heroine floated on almost unaided, I j until ytriking suddenly against an un- j I seen rock it, was upset and its j were struggling in the water.

But he was not a verv expert swimmer, and it was with iho utmost difficulty that he succeeded in reaching land with his by those pale thin cheeks, that I will i.evur touch wine agiiin." Will you sign the pledge eager- ly Angela. This was a little more than Richard was prepared to promise, but after a while he did and when, a few months latter, he sought Mr. Forrester and hin> for Angela, he was Dot re- fused. And Richard Walton is to-day a steady temperate man, through the in- fluence of Angela, now his happy wife. A Place Where Ilic Sun Jumps ft Day. Chatham Island, lying off the of New Zealand, iu the South Pacific Ocean, is peculiarly situated, as it is one of the few habitable points of the globe where (he day of the week changes. It is just ou the line of demar- cation between dates. There high day on Sunday, or Suaday noon, Monday's meridian begins Sunday conies into a win's house on the east side, and becomes Monday by the time it passes out the western door. A man sits down to his noonday dinner on Sunday, and it is Monday noon be- fore he finishes it. There Saturday is Sunday, and Sund-iy is Monday, and Monday becomes suddenly transformed into Tuesday. It is a good place for people who hive lost much time, for by takiug an early start they cnn always get a day ahead on Chatham Island. It took philosophers and geographers a time to settle the puzzle of where Sun- day ceased and Monday noon be- gan, with a man traveling west fifteen degrees an hour, or with the sun It is to be hoped that the next English Arc- tic expedition will settle the other mooted Where will one stop who travels northwest continually Hard Lumps on Jans of Cattle.

At that critical moment, just n lliehard was nbout to relax tho feeble efforts ho had been nuking to keoj himself and his betrothed above water a shout neia-ut hand fell on his car The other nicuibci's of the sailing par. ty had overtaken thjir unfortunate companions just in time. It was weeks before Angela knew the particulars of their narrow escape. She had taken a violent cold, which, togeth- er with excitement, brought on a severe attack of brain-fever, Richard not permitted to see her though he called daily. Her uncle, al- though he guessed the cause of Uie ac- cident, spoke no word of reproof But Richard needed nnno. His conscience was reproaching him more seriously than Mi. Forrester could have done. It sometimes seemed to him that he must go mad, sri great was the mental tor- tare he endured. IF she ho kept repeating Co himself. Oh, Heuven if she dies, in'the sight of God I am her murder- er." But Angela did not die.. In dus time tho (strength returned to her fra- gile form and the roses to her pale cheeks One afternoon, when she was sitting up in her easy chair, clad in wrapper and slippers, and looking like a droop- ng flower, with her white face and shorn head, her penitent lover was ad- nitted to her presence. It was the first time they had metsinoe that mem- orable day, and. overwhelmed with his sense of guilt, Richard fell on his knees Jeside Angela, and, with tears which were no disgrace to his tninhood, hadfced tho Good Father that her life been spared.
