Weakness of poor human nature that the Good old lady had actually she said. Dow Ned Smith won his medal Somo dozen Yoars ago before tho railways now throbbing Liko arteries through tho land wore in existence i wont with two friends to Lodge in Cornwall. Tho Placo was tho most retired i Ever saw. Far removed from tho Cross country Road and Only reached by venturing Over a track a for it could not called a path winding along tho Edgos of Cliffs often two and to Xref Hundred foot Bovo the Heath it was a place to Delight All Whoso Fortune had carried them within sight of it. A tl<85�outhermnost end of thou Bay closed in a Steepl spoof living Green caused by a landslip in watch tho turf had Slid Down like a veil to Lido Sefc ruin it left behind of which the Bonceli but a Back like some old n still resisting decay. It was the traces of nothing i ground o Normal Casi step by. Stop near this former Lawless 1-11 Iwu i to to seen. Fox Dan. Led a s of a the Iuen Bee. In connection with the in hot give Ltd be Oliie illustrated in our last publish the following curious facts vhf ten. Have Long since been ascertained but which we. Ext Jot in this form from tho admirable article of in the Bee id a applet on a new american cyclopedia. The Queen Hoe is the largest beings lines in length the males being 7, and the workers .6 her Abdomen is longer in proportion and has 2 Oval a of considerable size Hor wings Are so Short As hardly to reach beyond tho third ring Andre Collor is of a deeper yellow. She is easily recognized by the slowness of lies a March by . By the respect a lid attention a paid to i Grysho lives in tho Interior of the i id i and departs from it unless for tie Phr use it being in Pregun ted or to Lead out a hew i Ewa or re it she be removed from the ii with. Witolo will follow her. The i Reed governs the whole Colony and is in fact its Mother brio boing tho ouly of 20,000 or 30,000 bees on this account she is loved respected and obeyed with All the external Mark of affection and Devotion which human subjects could give to a beloved Monarch. A. Trio eggs and larva of the Royal family do not differ in appearance from those of the workers but the Young Are Moro carefully nursed Ami fed to repletion. With a Moro a stimulating kind of food which causes them to grow so rapidly that in five Days the lava is prepared to spin its Vyche and on Trio sixteenth Day becomes a perfect Queen. Bub As Only one Queen can a reign in the hive the Young ones Arn kept close prisoners guarded against tho attacks of the Queen Mother As Long As there is any Prospect of iter leading another swarm from the hive if a new swarm is not to to Cut off the workers allow Trio approach of the old Queen to the Royal Colls and she immediately common cos the destruction of the Royal Brood by stinging Thorn one after tho other while they remain in the Colls. Lubor observes that tho cocoons of the Royal larva Aro opon behind and lie believer this to to a provision of Natura to enable the Queen to destroy the Young which in tho Ordinary cocoon would be Sale against her sting. Ivhon. Tho old Queen departs with a swarm a Young one is liberated who immediately seeks tho destruction of Hor Sisters but is prevented by tho guards if Sho departs with another swarm a second Queen is liberated and so on until further impossible from the diminution of tho numbers or tho coldness of the weather then tho reigning Queen is allowed to kill All her Sisters. If two Queens should happen to Como out at tho Samo Timo they instantly commence a mortal combat and the survivor is recognized As the Sopor sign j tho other bees favor the Battlo form a ring a id excite the combatant so exactly As in a Huijin prize fight. Experiments amply Provo that oif the loss of the Queen tho hive is thrown into the greatest confusion tho in quietude which commences in one part is speedily communicated to tho whole t lie bees Rush from tho hive and seek the Queen in All directions after some hours All becomes quiet again and the labors Are resumed. If Thero be no Oggs nor Brood in tho Combs tho Boos seem to Loso their faculties they cease to to collect , and the Shulo Community soon but if Thero to Brood in the Cut Ilythe labors continue As follows having selected a grub not Moro Tki tii Throo Days old tho workers Saor fico three contiguous cells that tho cell of the grub May he made into a Royal Coll they Supply it with tho Peculiar stimulating Jelly reserved for tho Queens and at tho Ond of tho usual sixteen Days the larva of a work or is metamorphosed into a Queen. This fact which rests on indisputable authority is certainly a most remarkable natural provision for tho Preso vat on of the lives of the Colony. While a hire remains without a Queen swarming can Nevor take place Howo Vor crowded it May to. Tho possibility of changing Trio worker into a Queen is taken Advant Ngo of in tho formation of artificial swarms by which tho amount of Bony May to indefinitely in Oro ased. In a Well proportioned hive con tabling Twenty thousand la eos to Nino Teon thousand four Hundred and ninety nine workers live Hundred Malos and Ono the Hocin i in american into a Cavo where of lamp Finch Brandy bad Ofton a canst jul single night. We wer anxious to learn whether the tales to had Beard of Gornish wreckers wore True and it was Somo questioning on this subject which Drew from the old Miller the following Story a. A a i cant say i of such things never seed no such doings myself. I have lived liero., man1 and boy these seventy years a. To said Many and Many a the night we to been watching a ii the so Bleak Cliffs for a Chance to help the poor or natures As had Only a frail Plank Between them and death. Scores of Lyea in be Send saved but never took okie no not Bruto beast that came to the Shore from All the multitude of wrecks in be seed. I am not going to Ray that when the ships Pom things Aro All broken up and the timbers come ashore in a not Clear to say there is not some Small matter As never gets report Eto. The Kings Man. A Little i blame. To limbo that take it for the lord above knows a i believe it is Moro the fault of those that keep Back the honest dues for the Salvage. A remember in the Tim Tomt Barwood and he pointed to some pretty things made by his son of the Bright coloured logwood was coming in there was those As worked night and Day,.landed it and. After All their toil they wanted .to.-Tliepi off with just a Quarter of fatwas the right Money set a if.

A a. Eur my old head is Wolf Woll you must plea so to it does make my to falsities. Of. A of. A twas seven years last november a mind it Wella to arid Ned wore standing As your Honor and to is now by my old hut had been a bitter night of weather a and was so dark we could not see even the Liouns of foam that kept flying in our faces. Id just put tho Mill going with Somo Barley and was minded to lie Down fora Nap for you see i always Wake when the corns Down and Foo done to trouble about the Mill when t thought i heard Aguri. A could not Maksure for the wind was lashing tho Waves Nouri Nln Gigli and Trio Rako of tho Beach was most enough to Stein a body. Says i to Ned Ned you re More a Spray Man than me just Rake a look out to sea. Well,.he�?Td not gone but a few Steps when the full and True and even my old eyes could see the Flash i stopped up and turned off the water and nerl and to went and called up the neighbors. I sent a Hoy on horseback to tre Barfoot to bring Moro help and getting tho ropes and things we should want if anything could he Diotio for tho poor creatures on Board the distressed ship to went to the Point to thought Sho would Striko on. To had no help from our a Oyes but were Gnido a by our knowledge of tho wind and tide. A a it might by about , or Between that and six o clock when to got to we can old no stand , lint were obliged to lie Down on the Edge of the Cliff to discover the vessel. It seemed a whole night though i suppose. It could not be More than an hour before to could see or More than the Flash of the gun Aud the Roar of tho wind and Waves. After a hit we touched hands and wont Back to a More sheltered place to talk Over what was Host to be done. Some were for lighting a Firo to try to guide Thom into wide Mouth. Sand Day but 1 knew twas no Uso for i was Suro the vessel had not a rag of canvass standing Toli Elp her Holm oven if tho Helm itself was still serviceable and so Sho could never make a reach to headman s Corner and might miss tho Only Chance of running into Doop quiet water near the cupboard Roek. _ All at onco Quot while to were doubting what to do to Hoard a crash and cry such As Only a stranded ship and tho perishing souls on Board of her. Can make. A you talk of Cornish wreckers but Thero was wet eyes among us then and my Cne a hearts that never Luew fear fluttered like leaves on the Lime treo. A two stood right above where tho vessel struck. She Orup from tho Beach to measured it afterwards two Hundred and Fourtson foot. A mouse could not have found footing Down that Cliff and As it was within an hour of High Wator no help cd uld Como to Thom poor souls but by letting Somo one Down irom the place to stood on. A the dim Light of morning just enabled us to so each other and the. White Liuo of the Shore Waves. Somo thought they could see tho Wrock i cannot Tell if it was so. For certain to could hear now and then fam Tor and fainter and fainter theory of mortal Man. A i can stand this no Lon or a says nod at last a i can to stand Boro in health and strength with my two hands Idle while they poor croat Uros Uro Boaten to death against the very rocks to stand on. Boar a hand hero ill go Down this place.�?�. A two stood Liko Mon Blind and deaf for a Minuto and Thon All Triol to persuade him out of it for to thought it was certain death. Tho rope most Likely would to Cut through fraying Over tho Cliff Ortho wind might dash him with fatal Force against tho rocks. But noticing would Stop him he knotted tho Ropo around his Waist and taking a Short Gaff in his hand stood ready to slip off. Iio turned a moment Rind says How give love to Mary and tho children and if i done Tsoo them Moro Don t lot them on Como tho Parish. To Shook hands All around and Thon Stop j pod off and in a moment to was hanging al his weight on tho Ropo to hold. For gods Bako lower away to cried a i Soo . A a we saw Thom too for god rout the Black Clouds and looked through to Beo that Noble deed. In the cast there was a space of Clear sky through which al strip film of Light fell on Trio scene before us. An awful Seeto it was the ship was broken Tori pieces and every turn of the was cd her timbers tossed and Wor rolled and among them wore tho Somo past help forever Anil two or three still striving hard for life. J. A a just As Ned touched the Beach Ono Ryan was swept out. From tho narrow Lego they were trying to hold on to. Vith every third or fourth wave breaking Over. Thom. The Man Ned Camo to first was just such another for height and strength As Hin self and to held our breath with terror when we saw by his actions that to was As is Ofton the Case driven mad by his danger and was struggling dose oratory with the Only Man who could Savo him. For full five minutes together. Soni Otimus we thought of pulling nod up arid so making Stilo of him for a twas a hard Choice a the lady took his hand and eng to make a speech but Slio had Only just begun her thanks when Lior heart Rose in in her Throat and the tears stood in her Oyes and Sho Only said god bless you in and Puta Little Box into Ned spands and then kissed his great rough hand As if to had been a baby a face. Nod seemed struck All of a Heap. He looked at tho things she had Given him and turned his head As if to expected to Soo a Mark where her Beautiful lips had touched. A Well As the lady could not speak for herself the Parson up and told us All the sense of. It How that there was a grand Placo up to Len Dpi with a Groat Many grand Puoplo who subscribed among them to Reward Thom that saved life. A and Prood Quot says tho Parsons Quot proud i am that such a Token has come into my a. A Leo said Many kind and Good words and then told Ned to open Trio Little Box Rind show what was in it. There Suro enough .o-_Nt�Uiai-j7/, we Fri Nanri Thrno Little kvas a Beautiful Nedai. With Ned a Namo and but then the Wrislar left them once Quot. Children. More and to saw. Ned had him Down with his knee on his Chest and to knew if tho tide gave him. Time he Orri master. So it proved. Ice whipped a Tuyo or two of Ropo round his arms and cute big tight to him with his left gave the Sigil of feta haul away. A they Lead barely left tho Rock for we pulled easy Rit for st when a the whole Kelson of tho vessel was thrown item the very place they stood upon. To had them in our lift however and if the w right. A Jad been twice As much it would have Como tho Ropo held. a / a Quot we were All too Busy drawing them up to look to see what happened on tho Way. I hold it As Biblo truth. To $ there a scarce another Man but Ned Wou al have brought that Sailor up. Iio had Trivo said Ono Arm around him and with tho other warded himself from tho Sharp fac of this Cliff but he had 6om� for All his courage and strength. A a Vixen the Man found Hin self lifted up in that strange Way he got a Loro raving to Ever and finding to could snot Uso his hand lie fixed his Teeth in Ned a they to for All the Paivi and danger Ned hold on and i never Foi get to my list h3ur diet l Felt is to Drew them in Over the Edgo of tie Cliff and they were Safe. Door nod to Laid Liiri in a sheltered place and would Trivo put to stranger wit him but we soon found to was too wild to to trusted fro so to 4im for his own safety.

Well other women Camo soon after and bound up their wounds arid then we got a cart Aud brought Theca Down to Niy Hou Fdl. Eleven Noreri tend Throe boys were the of the Hesperus As the ship Wod called and Only that Ono Man saved. Iio Lay for Days very quiet at last and scarce spoke a word. What to did say was about Bis Mother and the name of some Young woman. When we stripped him by tho doctors orders a to found a Little packet Hung round his neck by a Black Riband and As it was wot with the Salt water to took it away to dry. My wife who Tondow him More than tiie rest said to scented to keep groping for something in his bosom so. Sho put it Back round his neck again and when lie found it there All right he never strove to Rise and Call out Asho. Did before. It is not for to to say but my old woman always considered that packet to hold some True love Token. She. Often said she wished she knew for she thought How glad his Mother and sweetheart would he to know to was alive. A. A. A a Woll to went on in that strange Way nigh on three works and to d us not know so Milioli As tho name of the sick Man.
