Brow of Vulcan's sleeping son is coming
Through the snowd of death!
His pallid Hps of
Gray basalt grow warm and move, to free a
Curie conS.iid within their niigrhty grip a
Million years ago; when he, with othcra.
Hushed the deep artillery of awful
Cyclopean war, and yielded to the
Chill of time.
To him a joy sublime it
Was to chorus with the groaning of the
Spheres, in line with all the brotherhood of
Thunderous Titans.
Up from Fuego's brawling
Sisterhood, and fnmi the dark Antarctic,
Up past Chimborazo, on, through quaking
Cordilleras, on, through California's
Fiery chaos, on, through Oregon, the
Battle ground of Gods, on, on along the
Vie? Alaska, roared these mountain
Iuitifc, and lighted up the Arctic
Night with fires so fierce that Boreal suns
In ver" vanquisbment went out.
Still onward
Through the rocking outinent and into
Deep Pacific's waves the line marched out to
Threaten Apia's distant coast; tmtil they
Stood with cold brine to their very nostrils.
One by one they spent their fury. One by
One thev yielded to the stealing coolness
Of the sphere. Among the last to sleep was
At first his rocky nostril fluttered
Fitfully; and, in a haif delirious slumber,
He tossed out the sea that laved his
Flinty ribs.
And then he seemed to sleep.
The young fir sprouted in his shadow. Sweetest
Grasses lured the antelope. The mountain
Sheep, the chamois of the west, looked into
The abyssmal throat whence hct the vapors
Of the giant's burning heart ascended.
Emigrants, with beating hopes of future homes,
Stole through the passes to the farther west.
The years swept on. No fear shook any heart;
Although, anon, a student of the rocks
Would view the lava beds and write or
Speak his dark misgivings.
Bent on riches,
Men still plowed and sowed and reap'd the harvest;
Built and entered in. They sometimes spent a
Day about the glaciers of the mountain;
And some wise ones said it was but yesterday
That this cold summit was a beacon
For a thousand railed around. A hardy
One or two declared the rocks were yet too
Hot for human feet. Some keen, eye iu the
Far off city saw a smoke go up from
And thus the world went round;
And yet no J ear fell on men's hearts.
At last a tourist
From the foot of some wide field of ice whence
Flows a river, came to town. He had a
Sketch or two of golden morn and purple -Eve,
in all of which the awful head of
Great dead Vulcan, rising from his grizzled
Beard of trees, detained the constellations!
"When," said he, "I q icnched my torch at night
And went to sleop, no rock about the mountain.

Up to see a thousand roods of bare and
Blackened rock, where, but the night before, the

Strange unrest.

And the chandeliers within the saercd chapel
Swayed like censers. Dizzy sleeplessness lay
like a spell above the pillows of the

Length, one summer day, Jehovah spurned his
Footstuol from beneath!
i A far off sigh of
Some impending woe, a mutter, half in

Into er.rs till now unused to terror.
Nature caught a breath and held it listening,
Then one blinding, stunning jar compressed the
Very air, till eyeballs ached and hearts grew
Sick. An instint later fell the earth a
Lozen fathom down, as drops a felon
Through the trap door of a galiuws.
On the crags were left midair. Their perches
Quick escaped their clutches. Jerk on jeik,in

"Mildred, you hae been crying."
Dolly Shaw knelt down beside her el
der sister and clasped ber arms about
her, looking up into tbe beautiful face
with anxious, loving brawn eyes.
"I cannot deny it, Dolly," fclie said.
"Scarcely, with such proot as tear
wet lashes; but the cause what has
happened to griere you you Mildred,
whose life seems all sunshine, wha are
beautiful, admired, loved
"l)ut no one's life can be all sunshine,
Dolly; the shadows will come. Don't
mind, dear; it is only my weakness."
"Then no one has offended you?"
"And nothing is wrong?" ! -'Only
"Hare baye you and Koger quar
reled?" A pained look crossed Mildred's fair
face, and her lips quivered; then she
rose and shook down her coils of waving
"No," she answered, in low tones.
"Iiuu away, now, dear, I'm going to
dress for dinner."
"Is Roger coining?"
She turned suddenly and faced her
younger sister; her face had grown pale,
her eves shone like stars, her lips were
"Roger is never coming!" she said.
"He is going away to-morrow, to Cali
fornia. That is all I know. Go, Dolly,
I would be alone."
Dolly went out slowly. There was
that in her sister's manner that warned
her that Koger Warren's departure had
much te do with her sorrow and tears,
and yet she did not seem to grieve as
one does over the loss of a dear friend.
There was' a tinge of bitterness, of
despair, in every toue, and a look on
her face that she had never seen there
"There is something beneath it all,"
she thought, as she returned to the
lower rooms.
Left alone, Mildred continued her pre
parations, but her fingers moved slowly;
she paused now and then as though ab
sorbed in thought, and once a sigh fell
from her lips, and the tears sprung
again to the lovely blue eyes.
Roger was going away Roger, whom
she had always known and lovsd, and
from her his dismissal had come.
She did not think when he told her of
his intention that she could care so
He had never thought of losing her
till one ill-fated day there came to the
village a niaa with the dark beauty of
a corsair, the grace and fascination of a
Leicester, and a fancy that was attract
ed by Mildred Shaw's beauty which
held him, for the time, captive.
He was Guy Froctor, a guest at the
heme of Judge Leonard, and Roger's
rival, in truth; for Mildred, whose faith
had never swerved before, found a
pleasure in the stranger's presence that
was irresistible.
Out of this, mutual fancy had come
Ro;er Warren's misery, and now the
enJ had come.
They had parted forever, and he was
going away, leaving the field clear for
his more favored rival, and surrender
ing a quest that he deemed hopeless.
"I will miss him for a while, and
then things will go on the same as ever,"
thought Mildred, as she secured her
"The first waltz to-moirow evening,
Adelaide, remember."
"I wander that you did not request
that of our rustic beauty," answered
Adelaide Leonard's fine voice, in tones
that were suggestive of mingled malice
and jealousy. "You will dance with
her I suppose?"
"You speak as though it were a nat
ural consequence," said Guy Proctor,
"You have been quite devoted "
. "Nonsense. She has a pretty face
acd a refreshingly natural maimer, I
admit, but it does cot follow that be
cause a man is attracted by these things
hr, must fall in love with th object. It
is Absurd for you to think such things,
"But your own actions, Guy."
The man laughed iaditTerentiy.
"Meant nothing at all. Do you
doubt me still? Would I have asked
you to be my wife, Adelaide, if I laved I been
any one but yourself?" '
Mildred fell back with a low cry,
hearing nothing more. All her hopes,
her dreams, her trust, lay a shattered
wreck before her. J
She heard tlie approach of the judge's
daughter and drew back behind a tall
urn of Southern cactus, standing there
motionless and breathless till the tall,
slender form, in its robes of muslin and
lace, had passed her and disappeared
from view. .
Hastening back into the ante-room,
she saw a maid crossing the threshold.
"Take the parcel to Miss Leonard,
please," she said falteringly. "I will
not see her. 1 I am not well. I must
An instant later she was in the outer
air. Down by the iron gates she met
Guy Proctor.
He advanced with a smile on his
handsome face and his hand outstretch
ed. Pride gave Mildred courage, and she
greeted him calmly, but there was a
tinge of coldness in her manner.
Somehow he realized that something
was amis", and the words of tenderness
were checked upon his lips.
There was a vague regret in his heart,
for in his selfish, shallow way, Guy
Proctor loved this girl, though the
wealth of Adelaide Leonard had proved
a bait, more tempting.
Mildred, understanding his nature at
lust, felt a great scorn and contempt
rising to thrust out the infatuation that
had possessed her.
She left him with less regret than
gladness; her heart .was heavy, but the
burden was not for Gui Proctor's sake
'it w.is of another she wa thinking,

Near her home she saw a familiar

for Roger, but he will forget, and it is
for the heat. Once I thought I should
be his wite, but uow it is impossible
simply that."
She met the gaze of her own tzure
eyes in the mirror, and blushed at the
thought that she read in their depths.
Then with a last survey at a reflec
tion in which the sternest critic could
detect no flaw, she gathered up her lilac
draperies and descended to the dining
room. Dolly looked at her in mute wonder.
That fair, calm face with smiling lips
and brilliant eyes seemed scarcely like
the toar-stained features she had seen
but an hour previous. Perhaps it was
nothing serious, after all.
The Shaws were not wealthy. The
death of the head of the family had left
them with their cottage home and a
small income, which, with the closest
economy, covered their needs; and now
and then Mrs. Shaw would accept a
light task from her neighbors, glad of
the opportunity to add a few dollars to
their scanty board.
She came to her elder daughter when
the morning meal was over and laid a
hand on her shoulder.
"Will you take Adelaide Leonard's
cloak home, dear? Dolly must finish
the ironing, and I am yery tired. She
wants it to-night."
Mildred hesitated. The errani was
distasteful to her, but her gsnerous na
ture overcame her scruples.
"Yes, mother, I'll take it," she said.

Mrs. Shaw shook out the finished
garment with its delicate rose-silk lin
ings and fringe of creamy tint, and laid
it carefully between the fld-i of tissue"
Fifteen minutes later Mildred was on
her way to t'n Leonard mansion.
She was ushered into the little ante
room adjoining the parlor. It wasrilledl
with the shadows of twilight, and Mil'
drd, sitting there alone, grew impa,
tient at the delay.
She rose at last and went under the i
plush-draped archway to tbe conserva
tory beyond.
There was a glass door leading into
the garden, and passing it, Mildred
heard the sound of a voice that was fa
miliar to her a vice that raade her
pulses thrill.
It was after their marriage Roger
heard her story. Ha understood it
aright, and only drew her closer with a
"It is all past now, dear," he said.
"If you love me now, I m content."
"I have always loved you," she an
swered. "I did net know it; but I
always loved you."

A dozen nion or more were sitting
around a saloon in a mountain town
when the door opened and a raw-boned,
ugly mugged looking feHow came in
with a whole armory attached to his
person. He looked at the crowd a min
ute, without speaking, and then stcp-
ped up to the counter.
"Here, barkeep," he growled, "gim
me some licker, an' gimme it raw. Don't
put no trimiu's into it for I'm no wo
man, to waDt my licker ornamented.'
"Yep, sir," replied the barkeeper'
quietly and politely, reaching under the
counter for a jug.
"Shove around sharp there," he went
on speaking in a louder tone, "I'm that
dry inside I can hear my liver rattle
'round aginst my short ribs.
He took the jug and poured out a
pint tin cupful and swallowed it.
"Twenty-live cents," said the bar
keeper. "What?" asked the drinker, looking
at him fiercely.
"In your pocket, I reckon, to pay for
that drink." '
"Not much there hain't. You don't

A. S. Le Grow informs us that he

that one side ot the tree is literally load

Peed is scarce on the reservation,
and the stock men are considering the
question of driving their herds into the
Wallowa country. Those who do not
do so must feed the entire winter.
The great secret of the rapid growth
of Adams lies in the fact that the busi

give one thousand dollars toward the
building of a new school house at
Adams. Equally liberal donations are
pledged by our business men, so that
with a very light taxation a building
can be erected to cost not less than six

substantial mark of improvement and
one that will be a credit and honer to
the place. Let the good work go on.

assisting in dedicating a Methodist
Episcopal church at Pilot Rock. Dr.
II. K. limes also took part. The socie
ty has a neat church, costing about
500, enclosed with a painted pailiug
fence, with a parsenage and barn, worth

promptly raised nearly $100, which was
given to Father Wilbur to send away
for that purpose.

Robert Toombs, ef Georgia, whose
chief ambitioa at one time was to call
the roll of his slaves at the foot of
Bunker Hill monument, was known as
the "unlucky fisherman." When he
was a boy he was quite ungainly in ap
pearance, and his companions used to
say that he was so ugly that he scared
tbe fishes awaj All through his career
he never had any luck in angling. He
would sit for hours n the banks of a
stream impatiently awaiting a bite and
cursing his luck, while others aronnd
were landing usli by the dozen. After
fishing all day in a Georgia stream he
drew up a huge mud turtle. He cut
his name in full on the hard shell and
threw the turtle hack into the water.
