"Niver you worry your hcarrt. sorr,"
called Macready, to whom the voice of his
friend had brought imperious conscious
ness, man-wise, instead of collapse. "Th'
faint is nothin. 'Tis a fortune fur thim
as can faint fur joy, an' no hurrt in ut,
sorr. Have you th' strent' f do th' over
hand up th' chain, wif th' fairest av tin
t'ousand at th' top, sorrV"
Constable placed his burden upon the
stone slabs, caught the chain, and pulled
himself free from the water. His weight
was a mountain. The five days had don
what four had not played havoc with
the one hundred and ninety pounds of
manhood which 'Struggled upward under
Macready's cheers, and fell across the rim
of the cistern into Macready's arms.
Lara awoke- and found Constable bend
ing over her. Her eyes rested upon his
lacerated hand, upon the swollen veins in
his throat and temples. She saw blood
npon his clothing, blisters upon his neck,
sweat and mire upon his face.
The reality came that he was praying for
her to forgive him because her mother
had died in his arms.
"Peter, my beloved!" she murmured.
"You say that mother "
She halted, for the grief uprose in
its fullness in her mind. The day had
put a look of horror in her eyes that
months would not efface. Hut
there was no mortal hurt upon her. Her
nostrils, lips, hands all moved in their
way of dear perfection. Some time she
would see that he had done his best.
Though he had failed in all else,
he had saved this masterpiece from barm.
"But if 1 had not come back, she never
would have known." he pleaded. "And
she forgave me I'm quite sure as you'll
forgive me "
"What are you saying?" shefcried sud
denly. "What do you mean? It is hor
rible, but I came thinking to find you all
lying here as they are in the city all
dead and down and I have found my
lover living !"
Macready and. Ernst, afar off, watched
the puffs of smoke and steam rise like
gray-white birds from the ruins.
"Ernst, lad," said the other, "th' boss
an' th' l'adln' lady are bavin an Intel
lechooal repasht in th' clnter av th
sta-age, be th' ould well. Hear in molnd
you're a chorus gurrl, an' conduct your
eilf in accord."
The Madame was steaming down from
Basse Terro to Saint Plorre. It was the
third morning after the tragic eighth of
May. On the evening after the eruption
the ship had touched Tort de France, and
loft the natives there to join Father Da
mien's colony. Then the Madame was dis
patched to Dominica, where Constable
cabled to New York for officers and men
to complete the ship's company, and suc
ceeded also in reaching Mr. Stansbury by
cable, with the word that his daughter
had been saved, hoforo the planter could
get passage for the Whlted Sepulchre.
Constable and Lara wore sitting to
gether nt the cabiu door in the sunlight
and soft winds. Tho girl wqrc a robe
purchased roudy-made In Hawse Terre. It
was white and lustrous, a strange native
fabric, which the man regarded with se
riousness and awe. This was an item in
the first consignment of feminine apparel
he had ever had the honor to purchase.
The Joy was full and rare.
"I come to you empty-handed and very
6oIled from the heat of the Journey, sir,"
she had told him; "but father will reim
"Father will be allowed certain priv
ileges, but not that." he had replied, and
many were the booties, flounces, ribands,
and mysteries which they drew, together
ind apart, from thq treasure houses of
ittle Uasso Terro.
Peter was In white, too, of a freshness
mly found on shipboard. His right baud
vns In tho swathed stato which denotes
repairs, and n thickness of lint was fitted
mder his collar. Thero was, too, a drawn
look about his mouth and eyes, to which
the recuperative forces had not yet at
tended. Negley, multifariously bandaged,
was on tho bridge, In company with n new
officer, secured temporarily at Dominica.
The captain was unable to walk, but sig
nified his intention of healing above decks.
Constable was regarding the sad face be
fore him, and the beauty of it had made
him dumb for several moments.
"Lara," he said finally, "we'll make the
pilgrimage together to Saint Pierre or
the place 1"
"She was very beautiful and very
proud our mother!" the girl whispered
unsteadily. "She told you to leave her
there In the dark, so that we would
never see how changed she was. I know
how she felt."
Lara, Peter and Crusoe made their ar
duous way up the cluttered road into the
Hue de Hivoll. A smoky charnal, Saint
Pierre, made human only by the lamenta
tions of those who had come down for
their dead from Morne Rouge and the
hills. The wind was still; and the sun
shone through silent towers of smoke, and
it was noon. No one had spoken for sev
eral minutes. The fruit shop had fallen
in part. The stone arch remained, al
though the wooden door had been levelled
and partly devoured by fire. Crusoe re
mained outside with Lara, while Peter
went in to sec if the place was safe. They
heard his steps upon the stones, the rat
tle of falling plaster. The waiting was
long before he appeared and beckoned.
They followed him into the little stone
shop. A breath of coolness still lingered
in the dim place, and the fruity odor of
spilled wine. The nsh-covered floor was
packed hard, and still was damp from the
susts of rain through the open door nnd
the broken-backed roof. Steady as a clock
ticking there was heard the "drip, drip"
from somewhere among the merciful shad
ows, where the old soldier of France was
"Lara, dearest, I shduld have spared
you this. Must you go farther?" Peter
whispered. "Crusoe and I will be only
"I am going, too," the girl answered.
The three climbed over the heap of
stones, which was the rear doorway, and
entered the court from whence the song
birds had Down. Across the drifts of
ash, Into the dark beyond, they made their
way, Constable leading, Crusoe last.
They were sitting together the lovers.
She had been listening, like Desderaoua,
as he "spake of most disastrous chances
battles, sieges, fortunes." Soronia had
been the first to see the sinister face of
Iago at the door! She had bent forward
and covered in her arms the face of her
soldier, her painter of pictures.
Thus they had fallen the adventurer In
the shelter of the golden vine. Pelee
had covered them with dust each particle
of covering dust fresh-wrought from the
fire iu which the stars were forged.
"Don't touch, Crusoe!" Peter warned.
Something in the tone caused the man
who was accustomed to do as he pleased
to forbear from his investigations. After
all, his own life had been spared because
Constable had taken him captive, nnd the
trip had paid. Crusoe did not understand
what was between the millionaire and the
revolutionist. It occurred to him at last
that this something must have been great
er even than dollars: yet he was not sure.
The look upon Constable's face as he led
the woman into the sunlight was that of
fortunes lost! Crusoe left them there,
and made his own way back to Fort de
France, to wait for his ship. He was
happy to be alive, but he carried a crown
ing mystery in his brain. This had to do
with a millionaire's generosity on the one
hand, and a millionaire's perversity on
the other. After all, ho acknowledged
that he knew less of Constable than when
he left New York.
Peter and Lara bad descended nearly
to the shore when she said: "If your
strange friend had not come into'our lives,
we could never have known each other as
we do now. We might have loved and
gone our way, without knowing all that
it means to be human, without knowing
all that our hearts could make us do."
"It all worked out like a mosaic for
you and me, Lara. Our valiants fell about
us, but we were left. Always in our
greatest need a man arose to help Breen,
Negley, Ernst, little Denny "
"Was there work for Pugh to do?" she
"Ah, Pugh the weak sister! He kept
you from going into the harbor too soon !
I shall pay him and let him go his way
to-night in Fort de France. The sea is
a strange mistress to mother two such
sons as the lion Negley and the poor little
jackal Pugh! Sweetest Lady,
I am in love with you and the world!
Bear witness that I forgive Pugh aye,
forgive Mondet! See, down the Hue
Victor the wreck of Les Colonies! The
little editor was there, perhaps writing
his paragraphs on the stanehness of Pe
lce! Once, Lara, my mother
said, 'Peter, some time you will breathe
the breath of life !' I know what she
meant now. I wonder bow she knew?"
"Mothers are close to the heart of
There were tears in her eyes. To the
right of them, among the ruins, a walling
woman had found her own.
They had traversed the Morne d'Or
ange. The sun bathed the fields, Tho
wreck of the great plantation house was
hunched closer to the ground. As he
neared the rim of the cistern, Peter halted
suddenly by the stricken lianas, and beck
oned Lara back. The well curbing was
broken away, and the earth for yards sur
rounding had caved Into the pit.
"Mondet was right, after all, about the
earthquake," he said.
Without speaking, they stood there for
keveral moments. Then Peter took her
hand and led her back toward the won. ai
the Sugar landing.
Night had fallen. Up through the
streets of the capital, they strode, the
man and woman. Casements wero open
to the stars nnd the sen, but the people
were dull with grief. Martinique had lost
her first-born, and Fort do France, tha
gentle sister of Saint Pierre, was bowed
in the spirit of weeping. They had loved
nnd leaned on each other, this boy nud
girl of the mother Island.
Through tho silent crowds Peter nnd
Lara walked, n part of the silence, pass
ing the groves and towers, where the laws
of Franco are born again for tho little
aliens; treading streets of darkness and
moaning, streets of light and tears. A
field of fire-lights shone ahead, their red
glow shining upon new canvas. This was
the little colony of Father Diunlen
brands plucked from the burning of Saint
Pierre. They passed tho edge of tho
bivouac. A woman sot nursing her babe,
fire-light upun her face and breast, drowsy
little ones about her. Coffee and night
air and quavering lullabies; above all,
beautiful Josephine In marble, smiling
dreamily among the stars. " It was the
most potent Instant of Constable's life;
some great joy or thrilling tragedy was
breathing upon his heart. lie saw a tear
upon the cheek of Lara. The voice of
Father Domien came from the distance:
"Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy,
nnd drink thy wine with n merry heart;
for Gpd hath already accepted thy works.
Iet thy garments be always white; nnd
let not thy head lack ointment. Live
joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest,
all the days of thy life "
There was a cry from behind. It was
from the lips of the woman with the Imbo
at her breast. She had caught tho gar
ments of Lara in her hands, and, half
kneeling, with her face toward Peter, she
exclaimed in a voice of joy:
"lie is come! lie is come!"
The silent camp uprose with n shout of
gladness. The remnant of Saint Pierre
pressed about the man and woman, cry
ing, laughing, kissing their hands. Con
stable had not dreamed of such glorify
ing gratitude; nnd yet he wns humbled to
tears. Those wore so few, and Saint
Pierre so vast!
"Father Damien," he said, when his
voice came to him. "we are come to take
you out to our ship "
"Not on the ship, but here now !" the
old priest cried. "It is the moment of
ten thousand years!"
And so they were restored to each
other, in the midst, of their devoted, in
the fire-light, beneath the Seven Palms
and the blessings of the Empress.
LITTLE BOY WON REPRIEVE.
Son of Attorney General llreVNter
I'lcntleil for Criminal.
The coming wedding f "ss Mar
Brewster and Donald Cnssells Is of
great interest to nil old Washtngtoti
inns because it united two families
who have always been Identified with
fbe grandfather of the brlde-t'lec
was Benjamin Harris Brewster, who
occupied the position of Attorney Gen
eral during President Arthur's admin
istration. When a young man Mr.
Brewster risked his life In a heroic
effort to save his sister from death by
fire, ami was himself terribly burned
and disfigured for life. He had most
fascinating manners and was noted for
his brilliant conversational powers.
There Is a very Interesting anecdote
told of Attorney General BrewBter
and bis soil Andre, now a captain In
the United States army, which Is prob
ably not known to this generation.
During .Mr. Brewster's term as At
torney General a notorious highway
man ami criminal was caught in Louis
iana and brought to trial It was a
celebrated case, and finally the trial
ended, and the prisoner, having been
proven guilty, was sentenced to be
hanged. But his counsel put In a stay
of proceedings, and telegraphed tho
Attorney General, asking him to In
tercede with President Arthur and se
cure a reprieve for the prisoner.
This telegram did not reaph Wash
ington until tho day before that set
for the execution. The Attorney Gen
eral hud gone to Philadelphia for tho
day, and the telegram was sent to his
house Instead of his office, and placed
on his desk to await his return.
Andre Brewster, then a little lad,
full of life and mischief, was a priv
ileged character an only son and a
great favorite with all the prominent
government officials. He had the run
of his father's library, and from tho
moment that telegram arrived lie be
came possessed with a desire to read
It. Finally, curiosity got the better of
him, and when lie had mastered Its
contents he was deeply Impressed with
It. During the afternoon he asked,
his mother all manner of questions iu
regard to the President's exercise of
clemency, and she could not Imaglno
why the boy was interested In that
subject. Andre kept Ills own counsel
and reluctantly retlrea to bed beforo
Ills father's return home.
Late that night the Attornoy Gen
eral returned, and, going to his desk,
found on top of the pile of letters tho
lyouisltina telegram, with this Indorse
ment, In Andre's round, boyish hand:
"Dear Papa: Give the poor man a
It was raining and sleeting, hut At
torney General Brewster's canrlago
had remained at his door, and, taking
the dispatch, he hurried off to the
Whlto House. President Arthur rend
it, and the Indorsement ; laid it down,
and turning to tho Attorney General,
said, with his kindly smile:
"This is Andre'B first case, Brow
stor; send tho reprieve."
But, alas! for Andre's success as a
special pleader. Twenty-four hours
later the President was besieged with
letters nnd telegrams from Louisiana
bogging lilm not to reloaso a dangerous
criminal In a law-abiding community.

From the figures of n report by tho

tracted the Interesting fact tlmt miio
prices of nearly, overythliiK reached n
higher level last year than nt any tlinu
during tin' InHt eighteen years, and the
farm produce lends nil tho rest.
The bureau divides tho 258 commod
ities of tho country Into nlno groups
and farm produce showed tho highest
Incrcnso In price uttnlnod by any of
the groups. And the encouraging font
uro of the report Is that tho panic of

stuff very much. In fact, taking every
thing sotd, the farmer got more nionuy

Sum farmers mny not know this, but
It Is true, because Mr. Powderly's hu
reau says so. Aside from tho musty
figures of a departmental report, the
fact Is evident that the farmers of th's
'country are more prnsporoim than tlioy
havo ever been. It Is shown In better
houses, bigger barns, fatter bank ac
counts, fewer mortgages, better ma
chinery, and, inoro important than any
thing' else, higher Btandard tOf living

L Thero Is one small fly In tho oint
ment, however, and that Is tho ract
that while farm produce has been rais
ing In price, clothing, Implements, lum

nishing goods and some other tlilngB
farmers must buy have, gone up. too.
But as these commodities have not
kept pace with tho advance In the

they may on the whole feel that they
