A RAGE AGAINST TIME.
It was, perhaps, well for the accom
plishment of her pvrpose, that, for some
time after setting t it on her journey,
Lily Servosse had enc tgh to do to main
tain her seat and guide and control her
Young Lollard, -whom the servant had
so earnestly remonstrated against her
taking, added to the noted pedigree f his
sire, the special excellence of the Glencoe
strain of his dam, from whom he inher
ited also a darker coat, and that touch of
native savageness which characterizes
the stock, of the Emancipator. Upon
both sides his blood was pure as the
great kings of the txirj, and what we
have termed his savagery, was more his
excess of spirit than any inclination
to do mischief. It was that uncontroll
able desire of the thoroughbred horse to
be always doing his best, which made
him restless of the bit and curb, while
the native" sagacity of his race had led
him to practice somewhat on the fears of
his groom. With that care which only
the true lover of the horse can appreciate,
Colonel Servosse had watched over the
growth and training of Young Lollard
hoping that he would rival if he did not
surpass the excellences of his sire. In
everything but temper he had been grat
fied at the result. In build, power, speed
and endurance, the horse offered all that
the most fastidious could desire. In or
der to prevent the one defect of a quick
temper from developing into a vice, the
colonel had an inflexible rule that no
one should drive him but himself. His
great interest in the colt, had led Lily,
who inherited all her father's love for
the noble animal, to look very carefully,
during his enforced absence, after the
welfare of Ins favorite, unce or twice
she had summarily discharged grooms
who were guilty of disobeying her fath
er's injunctions, and always made it a
rule to visit his stall every day, so that,
although she had never ridden him, the
horse was familiar with her person and
voice. It was well for her that this was
the case, for as she dashed away with the
speed of the wind, she felt how power
less she was to restrain mm Dy means oi
the bit. Nor did she attempt it. Merely
feelinsr his mouth and keeping her eye
on the road before him, in order that no
sudden start to right or left should take
her by surprise, she coolly kept her seat,
and tried to soothe him by her voice.
With head outstretched and sinewy neck
stretched to its uttermost, he flew over
the ground in a wild, mad race with the
evening wind, as it seemed. Without
jerks or strains, but easily and steadily
as the falcon flies, the highbred horse
skimmed along the ground. A mile,
two, three miles were made in time that
would have done honor to tne staying
quality of his sires, and still his pace
had not slackened, he was now nearing
the river into which fell the creek that
ran by Warrington. As he went down to
the long slope that led to the ford, his
rider attempted in vain to check his
speed. Pressure upon the bit resulted
in but an impetulent shaking of the
head and laying back of the ears. He
kept up his magnificent stride until he
had reached the very verge of the river.
There he stopped, threw up his head in
inquiry, as he gazed upon tue fretted
waters, . lighted up by the full
moon, glanced at his rider, and with
a word of encouragement from her,
marched proudly into the waters, cast
ing up a silvery spray at every step.
Lily did not miss this opportunity to es
tablish more intimate relations with her
steed. She patted his neck, praised him
lavishly, and took occasion to assume
control of him while he was in the deep
est part of the channel, turning him this
way and that, much more than was need
ful, simply to accustom him to obey her
will. When he came out on the other
bank, he would have resumed his gallop
almost at once, but she -required him to
walk to the top of the hill. The night
was growing chilly by this time. As the
wind struck her on the hilltop, she re
membered that she had thrown a hooded
waterprqpf about her before starting.
She stopped her horse, and taking her
hat, gathered her long hair into a mass,
and thrust it into the hood, which she
drew over her head and pressed her hat
down on it. Then she gathered her reins
and they went on in that long, steady
stride, which marks the highbred horse
when ho gets thoroughly down to his
work. Once or twice she drew rein to
examine the landmarks, and determine
which road to take. Sometimes her way
lay through the forest and she was star
tled by the cry of an owl. Anon, it was
through the reedy botfom-iand, and the
Ifealf wild hogs, starting from their lairs,
biiHHfti instant's fright. The moon

she pushed on, with this one only-

membered every word of pleasant badin

but she drove them back with a half in

she said. "No, not at all! They shall not
come at all, for I will save him. . Oh
God! help me! I am but a weak girl.
Why did the letter come so late? But I
will save him! Help me, Heaven!
guide and help!" She glanced at her
watch as she passed from under tha
shades of the oaks and, as she held the
dial up to the moonlight, gave a scream
of joy. It was just past the stroke of
nine. She had still an hour, and half
the distance had been accomplished in
half that time. She had no fear of her
horse, pressing on now in the swinging
fox-walk which he took whenever Ihe
character of the road or the mood of his
rider demanded, there was no sign of
As he threw his head upon one side
and the other, as if asking to be allowed
to press on, she saw his dark eye gleam
with the fire of the inveterate racer. His
thin nostrils were distended, but his
breath came regularly and full. She had
not forgotten, even in her haste and
fright, the lessons her father had taught;
but as soon as she could control her
horse she had spared him, and com
pelled him to husband his strength
her spirits rose at the prospect. She
even caroled a bit of exultation, as
Young Lollard swept on through a for
est of towering pines, with a sand cush
ion stretched beneath his white feet.
The fragrance of the pines came to her
nostrils, and with it the thought of frank
incense, and that brought the hvmns of
her childhood. "The Star in the East,"
The Babe of Bethlehem," 'The Great
Deliverer" all swept across her vision,
and came the priceless promise, "I will
not leave thee nor forsake. bull on and
on the brave horse bore her with untir
ing limb. Half the remaining distance
is now consumed, and she comes to a
place where the road forks not once,
but into four branches. It is in the
midst of a level old field, covered with a
thick growth of scrubby pines. Through
the masses of thick green are white
lanes, which stretch away in every direc
tion, with no visible difference save in
the density or frequency of the shadows
which fall across them. She tries to
think which of the many intersecting
paths lead to her destination. She tries
this and then that for a few steps, con
sults the stars to determine in what direc
tion Glenville lies, and has almost de
cided upon the first to the right, when
she hears a sound which turns her blood
to ice in her veins. A shrill whistle
sounds to the left once, twice, thrice
and then it is answered from the; road in
front. There are two others. O God!
if she but knew which road to take ! She
knows well enough the meaning of those
signals. She has heard them before.
Tie masked cavaliers are closing in upon
her; and, as if frozen to stone, she sits
her horse in the clear moonlight and
cannot choose. She is not thinking of
herself. It is not for herself that she
fears; but there lias come over her a hor
rible, numbing sensation that she is
lost that she does not know which road
leads to those she seeks to save, and at
the same time there comes the certain
conviction that to err would be fatal.
There are but two roads now to choose
from, since, she has heard the fateful sig
nals from the left and front; but how
much depends upon that choice! "It
must be this," she says to herself, and as
she says it the sickening conviction
comes. jno, no; it is tne otner; one
hears hoof strokes upon the road in front,
on that to her left and now, too, on that
which turns sheer to the right. From
one to the other the whistle sounds
sharp, short signals. Her heart sinks
within her. She has halted at the very
rendezvous of the enemy. They are ad
about her. To attempt to ride down
either road now is to invite destruction.
She awoke from her stupor when the
first horseman came in sight, and thank
ed God for her dark horse and colorless
habit. She urged Young Lollard among
the dense scrub vines which grew be
tween the two roads from which she
knew that she must choose, turned his
head back towards the points of intersec
tion, drew her revolver, leaned over upon
his neck and peered through the
overhanging branches. She patted
her horse's head and whispered
to him softly to keep him still.
Hardly had she placed herself in hiding
before the open space around the inter
secting roads was alive with disguised
horsemen. She could catch glimpses of
their figures as she gazed through the
clustering spruces. Three men came
into the road which ran along to the
right of where she stood. They were
hardly five steps from where she lay
panting but determined, on the faithful
horse which moved not a muscle. Once
he had neighed before they came near;
but there were so many hortes neighing
and snuffing, that no one had heeded it.
She remembered a little flask which
Maggie had put into her pocket. It was
whisky. She put up her revolver, drew
out the flask, opened it, poured some in
her hfind and leaning forward, rubbed
it oft the horse's nose. He did not offer
to heigh again.
Oneuf the men, who stood near her,

"The decree does not cover Servosse?"
"I don't half like the business, any

"Hadn't we better say the decree cov

"I can't do it," said the leader, with
"You remember our rules," said the
third. "When a party is made up by

"But before we do so, let's have a

took of its contents. Then they went
back to the intersection of the roads,
mounted their horses, and the leader
The men gathered closer, and then all
was still. Then the leader said, in words
distinctly heard by the trembling girl:
"Gentlemen, we have met here, under a
solemn and duly authenticated decree of
a properly organized camp of the county
of Rockford, to execute for them the ex
treme penalty of our order upon Thomas
Denton, in the way and manner therein
prescribed. This unpleasant duty, of
course, will be done as becomes earnest,
men. We are, however, informed that
there will be done with the said Denton,
at the time we are directed to take him,
another notorious Radical, well known
to you all, Colonel Comfort Servosse.
He is now included in the decree, and I
now submit for your determination the
question, 'What shall be done with
There was a moment's buzz in the
crowd. One careless toned fellow said
that he thought it would be well enough
to wait till they caught their hare before
cooking it. It was not the ffrst time a
squad had thought they had Servosse in
their power, but had never ruffled a hair
of his head yet. The leader commanded :
"Order!" And one of the associate com
manders moved that the same decree be
made against him as against the said
Denton. Then the vote was taken. All
were in the affirmative except the loud
voiced man who had spoken before, who
said with emphasis:
"No, by Granny! I'm not in favor of
killing anybody. I'll have you know,
gentlemen, it's neither a pleasant nor a
safe business. First we know, we'll all
be wringing our necks with hemp. It's
what we call murder, gentlemen, in civ
ilized and Christian countries.
"Order!" cried the commander.
"Oh,you needn't yell at me!" said the
young man, fearlessly. "I'm not afraid
of anybody here, nor all of you. Well,
Gurney and I came just to take some
friends' places who wouldn't obey the
summons. We're not bound to stay, but
I suppose I shall go along. I don't
like it, though, and if I get much sicker
I shall leave. You can count on that!"
"If you stir from your place," said
the leader sternly, "I shall put a bullet
"Oh, you go to h !" retorted the
other. "You don't expect to frighten
one of the old Louisiana Tiger's in that
way, do you? Now look here, Jake
Cavers," he continued, drawing a huge
navy revolver and cocking it coolly,
"don't try any such little game on me,

At this considerable confusion arose ;
and Lily, with her revolver ready cocked
in her hand, turned and cautiously made
her way to the road which had been in
dicated as the one which led to Glen
ville. Just as her horse stopped into the
Eath an overhanging limb caught her
at and pulled it off, together with the
hood of her waterproof, so that her hair
fell down again on her shoulders. She

urging Young Lollard to his utmost
speed, was flying down the road toward
Glenville. She heard an uproar behind
shouts, and one or two shots. On, on,
she sped. She knew every foot of the
road beyond. She looked back and saw
her pursuers swarming out of the wood
into the moonlight. Just then she was
in a shadow. A mile, two miles, were
passed. She drew in her horse to listen.
There was the noise of a horse's hoofs
coming down a hill she had just descend
ed, as her gallant steed bore her, almost
with undiminished stride, up the oppo
site slope. She laughed, evenin her ter
rible excitement, at the very thought that
any one should attempt tonOvertake her.
"They'll have fleet steeds that follow,"
quoth Young Lochinvar, she hummed
as she patted young Lollard's outstretch
ed neck. She turned when they reached
the summit, her long hair streaming
backward in the moonlight like a golden
banner, and saw the solitary horseman
on the opposite slope; then turned back
and passed over the hill. He halted as
she dashed out of sight, and after a mo
ment turned round and soon met the en

commander halted as they met the re

The train from Verdenton had reached
and left Glenville. The incomers had
been divided between the rival hotels,
the porters hod removed the luggage,
and the agent was just entering his office,
when a foam-flecked horse, with bloody
nostrils and fiery eyes, ridden by a young
girl, with a white set face, and fair, flow
ing hair, dashed up to the station.
"Judge Denton ! " the rider shrieked.
The agent had but time to motion with
his hand, and she hod swept on towards
a carriage, which was being swiftly
driven away from the station, and which
was just visible at the turn of the village
street. "Papa! papa!" shrieked the
girlish voice as she swept on. A fright

which rang over the sleepy town like a
trumpet note. The amazed horse veered
quickly to one side and stopped as if
stricken to stone, while Lily fell insensi

recovered he was bending over her with
a look in his eyes which she will never
forget. From" A Fool's Errand."

SCENES AT NOON.
Long shall we remember, if inceed we ever for
get, the moonlight November days at Mussel Bay
(Spitzbergen). Certainly we shall never again
see a heaven so beautiful as that which we oeeii
sionly had an opportunity of gazing at with deep
admiration. It was specially at noon that it was
finest. One day Nordenskjold a;id I walked out
to the end of the ice to enjoy the sight near at
hand of the waves dancing in joyous motion and
the ice blocks swimming quietly about. Our way
was over the ice, and walking was exceedingly
difficult. When we reached the furtherest part
of the archipelago we threw ourselves to rest and
took a view of our surroundings. They were sur
prisingly grand The southwestern part of the
vault of heaven was lighted by the circum polar
moon. In the flood of light which streamed out
from her there swam some few long drawn out
clouds. Right to the south near the horizoii
there was visible a faint reddish glimmer, clearbib
and sharply distinguishable from the white mooi
light. Here the sun had gone down, when the
long polar night had begun; it was the last,
glimpse of his light that we now saw. In the
southeas' some few rays of light changing every
moment in strength, color and position in fact,
the aurora in the torm it commonly takes heie,
raised themselves toward the horizon. Above
our heads glowed the pole star, everywhere over
the sky sparkle stars, darting stronger or weaker
differently colored lights, and on the north or
northeastern, horizon rests the darkness of the
polar night. I will not try to paint the rich
changing play of color, and the chiaroacuvi full
of effect. Add to this cloriou3 heaven a wide
stretchine sea glittering in the niootiligl
the white surface of Mussel Ray with the
three vessels standing out against it, the dark$

to repair the accident. She kept her
horse upon the shady side, walking on
the grass as much as possible, to prevent
attracting attention. She had proceeded
thus about a hundred and fifty yards
when she came to a turn in the road and
saw sitting before her. in the moonlight,
one of the disguised horsemen, evidently
a sentry, who had been stationed there
to see that no one came upon the camp
unexpectedly. He was facing the other
