No one in Hnniatnos could over understand wliat plensiu'o Arthur Pervis and 1 found in taking long walks, or why we should do «o, A lien wo might just as well rido. Everylnxly else, like most Callfomians, wont ou horseback whenever it was possible, and a stroll to the postofflce or along the beach was the utmost extent of pedostrl-anism. But Arthur and 1 tramped the country In all directions, as we used to do at heme, paying little attention to the mild surprise of the winter sojourners, who wondered at our eccentricity, and still less to tho scornful astonishment of the native«, who can conceive but one reason why any ono should go oil foot-that lie is too poor to buy or hire a horse. One morning wo started out on an expedition to tlio Hot Spring canyon, in tho mountains Mimn six miles from town, intending to get our lunch nt the hotel there, nnd afterward to six-lid the rest of tho day in climbing the mountains above, toword which wo had always lool;t»l longingly during previous visit« to the place. Off wo went., nt our customary road pace of four miles nil hour, between tho pepper tive hedges of the town and out into tho open country, when? green grass nnd growing cro|W innile it hard U> realize that the month was n winter one, nnd that our Now England homes were smothered in snow, with the lliernionieter very likely down lieiow zero. In fart, it might have been a little cooler without any objection from us, for tho warm sun nnd lircezeless air soon worked their effects, nnii when we reached tho little hotel, precisely ail hour ami a half after starting, our crimson faces, relieved and set off by yellow dust, gave us a startlingly Iniliun-esqtic appearance, which our tremendous ap-|»etitcs ut lunch (lid not by any means ill suit. However, after an hour or two wo were ready for further operations—the moro so since, tlio sky having become overcast, it was much less warm than in tho forenoon. "l^ioks ils if the fog might conio in Inter," said the hotel kiniper us wo set out. "Keep an cyo out for it, hoys." Artluir an-1 I laughod. Wo were lioth from the eastern Maine sea coast, where for days nt a time you can't seo across the street, so thick is the mist, and a light California fog did not strike us as very formidable. "All right," wo replied. "If wo seo a regular 'Kastport smotherer' heaving in sight wv>'li come buck." And, with another laugh, wo begun scrambling up the deep slope, leaving our host gating doubtfully after as long as ho could SIN! us. A must wiy that a moro deceitful mountain tl*i: limb couldn't lio found anywhero. It hadn't npiH'ared very lofty when looked at from below, but tho longer wo climbcd tho higher it sooined to grow, and thero were so many ridges nnd gullies crossing its sido that, what witli going up one and down another, wo must hnvo gone nearly twice as far as if the acclivity had been smooth. "This is more of a job than I thought," pulled Arthur, while wo wero resting at the end of the iii'.--t. hour. "1 should s-iv so," assented I, looking up toward the top—or rather looking whero I supposed it to lie, for another of those provoking rid'ees barred tho way nnd shut off every glimpse of what might be lieyond. "If we don't hurry," continued Arthur, reluctantly rising from tho bow lder he had been sitting upon, "I don't believe wo shall get there in time, for it grows dark early, you know, and 1 wouldn't be caught up hero after sunset for u good deal." "Hume with mo. The Inndlord says there nro no end of gulches nnd precipices nil nriAiid, and we might easily tumble iu or off one. Yes, we must hurry." So off we started up tlio ridge, finding, on crossing it, that there were, us usual, moro of the same kind yet to ho passed, running in ail directions aud pretty thickly covered with chaparral and stunted trees—a mixturo of rocks, brush and steep banks anything but pleasant to contemplate for those who must either get through it or else turn back. Hut neither of us being of the turning hack sort, we plunged into the labyrinth, with the result that al ter half an hour's hard struggling, we simultaneously stopiiod and turned to e.-icli other iu complete bewilderment "Arthur, 1 think we're lost." "And I'm sure of it, Sam." Weil, that was just the state of tho case. We hadn't the remotest idea where we were, nut- which way to go. Notbiifg was to Ik; seen but sharp pinnacles or long ridges, divided by deep, narrow gorges, shut in wiiii bushes, and generally oliscure nnd confusing. Then, for the tirst time, we perceived that the sky was covered with driving gray scuds, living so low a_s to almost touch the treo-tops. "We're done for," wiid Arthur, resignedly. The fog's coming, and in half an hour we might J-*»-Wiud, for all tho good our eyes will do us." "Oh, not so bad lis that," said I. "These fogs are inching to what we've been used to.11 "I'erliaps not; but you'll llnd that this one will be enough nnil to sjiare, down herein llie?.' gulches, with night coming on, bo-si,les.'1 Tin re was something in that—a great deal too much, til fact—and tho question arose, what were we going to ilof "We must go down nnd get as far as wo can before ive ha\e to stop. Then wo must wait till we eun see again." "Which may not bo till tomorrow morning." "We can't help that. I»t's go back toward the tuw." "But which way is that»" "Don't know. Conic oil." And, with this unpromising sjieech, Arthur led the way in the direction wo had come, hoping to tie able to retrace our course. I followed, though without any groat confidence in Ills success, for wo bad become very thoroughly lost before being willing to acknowledge it, and might have travelod in circles ever since getting into tho broken ground. We had not gone far liefore tho streamers of vapor began floating around us like wreaths of steam. They grew longer and more miiuei ons, until, without knowing when or how it happened, we found ourselves buried in fog. And it wus growing dark, too, Arthur finally stopped aud said, decidedly I "Sam, it's pel-feet foolishness to keep on In this nay. Wo don't know whero we're going. We're only tiring ourselves out, and the ilrst th'ng we know wo may pitch head first off some precipieo. Let's stop and wait for morning." I was obliged to admit that he was right Between darkness nnd fog, wo could not sea whore wo placed our feet, and all about was os black as a closed cellar. "These rocks won't niako a very eft bed," I remarked, after accepting Arthur's proposition. "No, they won't; and 1 don't think it's safe to sleep on the ground. Thero are California lions around these mountains, and I've heard that rattlcsnukes aro not very scarce, either. Wit mustTlnd a good troo anil get Into that" Finding even so large ail object as a tree U not tho easiest task In tbe world, when on» cant see anything whatever, and we groped about unsuccessfully until we began to think that we should have to take our chances of California Uons, rattlesnakes and any other dangers tho mountains might afford. But just then I came in collision with something round and hard that gave me a severe bump on the nose. "I've found one, Arthur 1" I exclaimed. "Come along slowly tin you touch me. rm standing against it" He did so, and then assisted mo to climb tbe Invisiblo tree. It was twisted and distorted, like all mountain trees exposed to high winds, extending out at an anglo from the great rock under which its roots found nourishment, so that its Inclined trunk and heavy branches made by no means the worst of resting place«. We stowed ourselves away in the first and second forks, glad enough to rest after our hard day's tramping. Supposing tho timo to be somewhere about 8 o'clock, wo would havo to stay there for some eight or nlno hours till sunrise, and the night air, combined with the fog, was cold and damp. But, on tho other hand,we found a few biscuits in our pockots, and our coats were heavy. Wo were not so badly situated after all. Then, too, the morning would probably be clear, and with the sun for a guide we could certainly find our way. "Oh, wo can stand this!" we agreed, cheer-fly. "It'll be n long night, but that's the worst of it It'll do us no harm, and wiU teach us to carry compasses the next time we go mountaineering.n In this frnmo of mind wo propared to tough It out. It was a long night and a most uncomfortable one. At first we could not get to sleep, try as wo would, and we talked and told stories for hours. Then wo began to feel drowsy, and settled ourselves as well as wo could to take a nap. But tho hardness of tho rough wood and tho frequent aches nnd cramps which ran through us made sleeping difficult, and even dangerous, for I with of us came within an ace of falling out of tho tree several timos during the night. Once Arthur, who was above, slipped and fell directly niion mo, carrying mo with him, and wo lioth slipped somo feet down the trunk before wo could stop. "WhewI that was a clnso shavo," panted lie, pulling himself bnck again. "It's lucky that this troo doesn't stand up straight," said I. "We'd have been plumped down on those hard rocks if it did." "Well, it, isn't very fnr to tlio ground, fortunately," answered he. "We're not up more than ten or twelve feet, I should say." After this we kept brond awake and passed tho tedious hours somehow or other, but they wero the longest I ever remomber to have spent. It seemed to lis that tho night would never be over, nnd wo wero wondering whether the world hadn't stopped turning on its axis, when Arthur suddenly exclaimed: "Why, I can see you, Sam!!' And looking up I could just descry his flg^ ure and the sliai»s of tho branches near him. Hurrah! It was really morning at last Tho light grew rapidly stronger, and overhead the fog was breaking up. Strips of dark blue showed through the clouds, nnd we were now ablo to see quito a strctch of tho ground over which we had come. "Curious that it clears away faster on one sido than on the other," remarked Arthur. "I can't see a thing under us, whilo all out tho other way the rocks show as plainly as can lie." I looked down and saw nothing but fog beneath and further out. "It is queer," I said. "I never saw fog cjing to the ground so before in my life, stifl less only iu one place." Just, then the sun broke through tho vapors nnd flooded us with its brilliancy. I was looking up to get my bearings from it, when a sort of gasp from Arthur caused me to glance at him, first in snrpriso and then in alarm, lie was clutching the trunk with both hands, anil gazing downward with staring eyes, open mouthed and palo faced, a. perfect statue of terror. Hastily following tho direction of his look, I caught one glimseof what he saw, and instantly hugged the nearest branch liko a madman. Beneath me was an empty gulf, going down, down.ti II the t res tops at the bottom looked like shrubs, nnd through tho thinning fog I saw that our tree grew out of the very edge of a sheer precipice hundreds of feet high, over which it hung like tho arm of a crane. Do you wonder that wo were frightened, or that for some minutes we clung thero, trying to steady our swimming heads nnd braco our trembling nerves after tho sudden shock of that sight! What an ordeal that was getting off our perilous perch, moving an inch nt a time, sliding, holding on, aud finally making a last plunge to the safety of the firm ledge I We lay there half au hour before we felt ablo to rnovo again. "Think how near I canto to walking right off tho edge!" I kopt relating, over and ovor'ugain. "And then that timo when wo almost fell out the tree together," Arthur said, shuddering. "Suppose we'd taken a fancy to jump down in the night I" Wo safely descended tho mountain, much to the relief of the landlord, who was about sending men to search for us, nnd drove liack to town; but it wus long before we cared to dwell upon the remembrance of that unconscious, careless and frightfully dangerous night we iind passed up a tree.—Manley H.

Carroll bad asked me to Invito his betrothed to Locust Grove, and having made Carroll's wishes my law during tho twenty-eight years x>f his life, I at once wrote to Miss Agnes Lapico, and gave her a cordial invitation to visit me. She accepted in a graceful, pretty note that prepossessed me In her favor, and at the time appointed I drove to the station and met her when the train arrived. As she was the only passenger who got off the cars at N-, I had no trouble about finding her, and greeted her affectionately. She was very, very pretty; pure blonde, with a face like one of Raphael'^ cherubim, almost babyish in Us round outlines, wondering blue eyes, aud short, golden curls. She was very small, with helpless, childlike ways, and I wondered greatly at Carroll's cboico. For Carroll, my grandson, orphaued in infancy, had grown to manhood under my care, and was a man grave and rather sedate, of stern rectitude, devoted to his profession, that of a lawyer, and the last man in the world I should have expected to fall a victim to a baby face and childlike manner. And yet he loved Agnes Laplce with the first true, strong love of his heart, and saw only perfection in her caressing ways. In less than a week I ceased to wonder at what I had first thought Carroll's infatuation. Agnes Laplce was, without exception, tbe most lovuble person I ever met in my long lifo of varied experience. Sho was 19 years old, and had been most carefully educated, and behind her baby faco had a well stocked brain. Her singing was simply perfect for an amateur, and she played well, though her fingors were seldom on the piano keys except to accompany her sweet, pure voice. One of her great charms was tho tender deference she paid to my age, without seeming even to consider me too old for a confidante and companion. We saw Carroll only from Saturday afternoon till Mouday morning, as Locust Grove was too far from tho city for daily trips. But, although Agnes talked often of her betrothed, of tho preparations for her approaching wedding, she never seemed weary or dull in our quiet life. She read well, and we passed hours with our favorite authors, she sang for mo, she worked me a gorgeous sofa cushion, and we walked and drove out together. But, through all the charm of her manner, the Innocent, caressing ways habitual to her, thero was an expression in her violet eyes that perplexed me. It was not sufficiently defined to be fear—more like a shadow of fear—and it was brief, passiug away like a summer cloud across the sunshine. Often she would lock her little hands together till the pressure looked as If it must pain her, while in her eyes would come a hungry look, as if she were controlling some violent emotion by a great effort. She had been at Locust Grove about three weeks when I began to be troubled about the extra servant I had hired to wait' upon my visitor. She was a young girl from N-, who bad been highly recommended to me by one of my own servants, and sho was willing and respectful; but I doubted hor honesty. Having bad the Barno servants about mo for years, women of tried principle, I had bo-come careless about locks and keys and seldom used them; but little trifles of value began to disappear most marvelously after Hannah came. A gold pencil case with diamond hoad, that had belongod to my husband, was tho first thing that I missed; then followed a card case of silver, small trinkets disappeared and I was thinking Hannah must bo sent away, when ono morning, going unexpectedly to my room, I saw, through the open door, a reflection in my long mirror. Unseen myself, I watched Agnes Lapico as she softly o)>ened my box of jewels, took out a poii- of diamond earrings aud put them upon the bureau. In hor eyes was tho look of fear, now positive, defined terror; and her tiny hands worked convulsively as sho held them over the trinkets. Suddenly sho snatched them, secreted them In hor pocket, turnod, and saw—me. With a cry that was terrible to hear, it was so full of despair, she literally threw herself at my foot, moaning as if in pain. I stood erect looking at her. I am an old woman, and the new names for. Indyliko steal-lug wore unknown to mo. Agnes Lapico, groveling at my feet, was simply a thief who had robbed mo, and allowed an innocent servant to bo suspected, for she know my resolution regarding Hannah. Presently she lookod up. "You will not tell Carroll f" sho said, imploringly. Then seeing, I supposo, my utter disgust in my faco, she cried: "I cannot help it You may blamo mo as you will. I cannot resist the inclination to steal. I do try, but when I seo small articles I must tako them. I do not want them; I will give you back again all I have taken, but I shall probably steal them again when I see an opportunity. I must do it." Then I took her from tho ground and looked Into her eyes, trying to raid tho insanity I was sure was upon her. She lay in my arms liko a child, sobbing pitifully, repeating her assertion of Inability to resist the deslro to steal, tUl, against my owu reason, In spite of my roctltudo and common souse, I found myself petting and pitying her as if sho were the victim of a fever. But I would not promise to keep secret what I had discovered. Though I was won over to a most profound pity, I shrank from tho idea of Carroll's wife being a thief. It was a strange coincidence that on the very same evening, Carroll, coming home for his weekly visit, while we wero chutting in the drawing room, said, gravely: "I had a very painful case presented to me this morning. One of our leading merchants wanted me to defend his daughter, who is tho victim of kleptomania." I felt Agnes, who sat near mo, shiver and slip her Ice cold hand into mine. "Perhaps, grandma," continued Carroll, "you do not know that kleptomania is the new name for fashionable theft Wo are old fashioned folks here, and have always called a thief a thief. It is monstrous," ho said, his eves flashing, "to defend stealing because tha thief Is In high social position." "But," I said, "they plead tbe temptation Is Irresistible." "So may any thief plead. Supposing I were to walk into a bank and feel an irre-■btible desire to run away with a few thousand dollars' worth of bank notes. Do you Imagine judge or jury would acquit mot" "But," I urged again, "if you had a deur friend a victim to this disease—if it is a disease—would you judge her so BterulyT i "I would. I could far sooner forgive a poor, starving wretch who took my purse when driven by want to crime, than I oould a thief, who, needing nothing, robbed me, and called the robbery kleptomania." "But If It were a lady, delicate and refined, you would not send her to «hare tbe prison of common felons." "I would, if she had fitted herself for their society by sharing their crime. Indeed, I should judge such a case tar more severely, for there is no shadow of excuse for it A poor girl, Ignorant and starving, would have far moro leniency at my hands than a lady who could so lower herself." I looked at Agnesi She was pale as death,' and in her eyes was a steady, mournful look I had never before seen there. ' I "Carroll," she said, "if you had a dear friend who was afflicted with kleptomania, how would yon advise her to overborne tlM temptation!" Something in the voice of his betrothed moved Carroll deeply, for be replied, with • strango solemnity: ■ :,- i "As all other temptations must be overcome, by constant struggle and fervent prayer," r I thought the time had oome for tbese two to fully understand the painful position, and mado some excuse to leave the. room. | Not until I heard Carroll go upstairs to his own apartmeut would I re-enter the drawing!' room. Agnes was there, deathly pal«,: but with a certain womanly expression new fc> her sweet face. ? "I have told him," she said; and her vote* sounded hollow and foroed. "Be will not give mo up, but I have resolved to leave yoa all for a long, long timo. I will try to ovsr-conio the ailliction of my life by struggle and prayer, as Carroll advisee. If I oonquer X will return; if not, Carroll's wife shall never be a thief." She rose as she spoke, and, kissing me fondly, wont to her room. I thought to have a long talk with her, to offer sympathy and counsel, but in the morning we found her room vacant, the bed undisturbed. Bhe wrote to mo soon, telling me she had walked toN—aud caught the midnight express. • "I loavo home today," she wrote, "and unless I can come back cured I will oome back no more." 1 In her room I found all tbe little trinkets I had supi>osed were in Hannah's hands. Carroll aud I talked often and gravely Of the child ho loved, sometimes hopefully, but often, as time wore away, sadly. For my grandson had repented often of his barsh, stern judgment, and was willing to think there was really a disease in fault "And yet," he would say, with mournful eyes, "if it was kleptomania that made Agnes take your trinkets, why should we have sent to Sing Sing the burglar who was caught stealing the plato a few years agol That poor wretch was driven to crime by starvation, but there was no sentimentality in his lawyer's plea. He was merely a thief and received tho punishment of a thief." , "And you would send Agnes to Sing Sing?" "Heaven forbid! I cannot cease to love her, nnil pray that eho may come back to ua as she promised." So two years wore away and we thought Agnes was lost to us. CarroU came every week us usual to spend Sunday with me, and we tallied of his betrothed as we talk of the dearly loved dead. On Saturday afternoon I was in my own room sewing, when a knock upon my door was followed by the entrance of a lady, a little lailv, who stood hesitating about entering till i said: I "Agnes, dear child, welcome!" 1 Then she nestled iu my arms in the old loving way. But in her faco I read the truth I longed to seo, that sho had overcome her temptation. The baby look was gone, and the violet eyes, retaining all tholr sweetness, were full of gentle dignity. The baby manner, too, hail vanished iu a quiet, lady like deportment« very graceful and winsome. "My dear, dear child," I said, taking off her hat nnd sacque, "you are moro than welcome." "You will beliove me, then," she-said earnestly, "when I tell you that I have conquered my fault, uiy criminal Inclination. I look back with wonder on my own weak yielding to a temptation that leads strong men to prison cells, anil which only morbid sentiment would ever excuse as an Irresistible disease." I assured her most warmly of my sincere belief iu her statement, my deep Joy in. her triumph. She told me of her struggles and tho gradual wearing off of the desire to appropriate tho property of others. "For a year," sho said, "I have purposely watched opportunities for theft, for you art tho only one that over detected .me, excepting Carroll, who' knows of my old infirmity. I could have stolen largoly from friends I visited, for even my owu parents knew nothing of my old temptation. But the desire has left me, aud 1 feel only loathing and contempt for the shallow excuse with which I onoe quieted my conscience. CarroU may trust me!" And Carroll did trust her, and has never regretted his confidence. He comes, with his wife aud children, to pass the summer mouths at Locust Grove, and he Is not more stern and strict in his teaching to the little ones of the value of honesty than is Agnes, his wife, who once believed herself an incurable case of kloptomanla. — Anna M. Shields in New York Ledger. "Barbara Frletclile." What historical foundation is there for the poem "Barbara Frietchie"? This question has been much discussed, and tho pros aud eons may bo summed up as follows: Mrs. South worth, the novelist, sent Whit-tier the incident, and its truth has since been testified to by Dorothea Dix, who investigated tho matter in Frederick, by an offiosr of the army, and by a southern soldier, who dec!aro-1 that his was one of the shots that struck the (lagstaff. Ou the other side are Gen. Jtibal Early and two other», who testify that Jackson's corps did not pass through tho street whore Damo Frietchie lived. A Washington correspondent of The Baltimore Sun stated a few years ago that tbe real heroine of tho iKtem was Mrs. Mary A. Quan-trell, nnd thnt the Quantrell family have letters from Whittier acknowledging the mistake. Mrs. Quantrell—at that time 89 years old - did wave a flag conspicuously, but was not molested in tho least, though a small toy flag which her little daughter held was twice struck from her hand by a soldier. Mr, Whittior himself has written: "The story cumo to me from sources which I regarded as entirely reliable; it had bew published in newspapers, and had gained public credence in Washington and Mary-lap.,1 before my poem was written, i had no reason then to doubt its accuracy, and I am still constrained to lielievo that it had foundation in fact."— IJppincotfs Magazine.
