Not Lacy, but Bess, was to help llolf build and inhabit so'ine such magnificent palace as he read in books belonging to his father books that told of Noise, and Viking, and iScnld, nnd all the brave mythology of the North It was Bess who purched of evenings bcsido llolf on the nettle in the pnrch of his lather's duel- ling, while Master Hastings a big China pipe in long puffs, nnd told :jf little Heligoland, whoie Rode aie ye chflsand white 3'e sand of Fues- land, where the women wear golden lielmets of far-off Spitsbergen, and the hardy Russ sailors wrecked Boss who planned with llolf to get a golden bkiff, such as Froyn and steer on beas lit only by the northern lights, and be wrecked happily on Spits- bergen, with a full cargo of tallow can- dles! But Bess was five, and oM enough to eo to school at the Corners, and get tt further outfitting for her life cruise, nt the hands of the sharp-faced, keen-eyed, learninsr-loving, poverty be- "eatruered school master Carrying her bl piiuier in a green lannel bag made by grandmother, Bess, barefooted, in a blue spotted eali eo frock nnd fcunbonnet, set off for tho ;emple of learning, Lucy Wren leading ler by the band, and Rolf gallantly oar- ryinjr her dinner in tho banket with His own Arriyed at school, behold the rio seated on a lone blue bench by the wall, nnd Bess is triveri a board with shone Waster Hastings as a story teller, giving with infinite relish, and a grand rolling f-rth uf the old Grcqk and Roman namoii, the uems of classic lore Or by times he drew on his stock of information for glowing de- father, taking drunkencss as his steady busi- ness, for several years just in inagod to natch fish enough to pay for his whisky Tom at fifteen assumed the caie of his mother, and kept want at more than aim's length from her, until at the end of seven years the school master read a simple burial service of his own com- piling over her pire cofKn, and Tom's description of himself was that he felt as if his masts wore snapped clean off, his rigging was carried away, and his hull being stove in, ho was dead swamped." But just at this time Tom had a new dependent cnst upon him, so he was obliged to refit after all these damages; for his father became jncap- iifilc of supplying himself with either bread or whiskv. while he loudly de- run ndc-d both For three years more, Tom fed and clothed his wretched parent better than he did himself; ho paid his liquor bitla at the Blue Muckrrel" as punctually as if they had been honest debta. and they were eo considered in thoso days. Tom missed goad beiths on niciohant vessels, ble- oause he must needs be near hpme to see that the okl nmti did .not, barn or drown himself) he went late on nights, and carried propouals, Toui shook he thought it very unfair to have a nice young Woman: worrying about him when lie was out at sea, or breaking her hcait QVCI his fate whr.i his bark and himself untimely down in a storm.

When was two, a new member had appeared in the family, a small bis- ter, called Kate, fiom her mother's, mother This juvenile brought plenty of love with hei, as babies uro wot.t to do; butpoihaps Bess had a little su- premacy m her father's heart, because of hot siofiulur congoimlity he loved, she loved natuially and how he gloried in her knowing; all the names of all parts of boat or bhip, and laughing feath ssly in being out in u blow Without Bess as a leader, Kate would have been u domestic little body. and IIUVP grown iritj a notable house- wife As it was, she tonk more kindly to the Ions seams and stockinp-kuitting, and out nf duorb emulated all the daring feats of lloll and Bess. To enumciaje these would be wearisome; pel haps one, which filled the Cove with excitement, may servo as n sample. Bess, being eight old, and expecting her fn- thor soon to return from a voyage, thought, that, nothing would bo finer than to DO able to repoit that bho had sailed a boat and caught a load of mack- erel herself! As to do this entirely nlonc.was manifestly impossible, Bess confided the darling project to llolf. and avowed a determination to make Kate a sharer in it, because you tiaiJ Bess, "that I am older than Kate, and t ought to see that she d.m't grow up a stupid Bess's propo ition ex- actly chimed with the boyish daring of Rolf, who lind fearless ignorance of thirteen.

The fishing was not a success; it was a bid day, not in the fishing reason, and the- children, despite their self- sufiiuieney, were bunglers in the great jrt By five o'clock they had caught only three Gsh were all tired, Kate was ready to cry, and the heavens were uow durkly and the wind came in strong puffs from the sea, Rolf proposed to go home They had much d.fficulty with their sail, and the wind btiing partiyfromjiie noith, drove them southeih. whilojfce tide ribinu and ihe wind the land.

Managing to take down his sail, he set Boss at the rudder, ami then wind, tide, and carried him toward the Peak, which, rather by the kind care of Pumdenpe than their own skill, they reached We must make-fast this boat." said llilf, ''else, if we get ashore in the world Then wh it would Tom do for the bcut said Bets.
