Ah, Harry, my darling, must the
shadow of your dear face haunt me
forever.' Perhaps, if I could have
kissed your marble brow, and laid
your cold and lifeless form in the
quiet grave I might have become re
conciled in time to Gods providence ;
but to think of you always as I last
heard from you, weltering in your
own'precious blood dying far from
home, by the hand of the cruel assasB-
in, and doomed to a watery grave, is
more than I can bear. God help me,
I don’t want to cloud the lives of my
children, with my selfish grief. They
try so hard—heaven bless them—to
make me forget my pain ; but alas,
my wound is incurable. The death
angel alone can apply the healing
touch. In her pre-occupation she
had spoken this last aloud, uncon-
ciOfiB of the approach of a light foot
fall and a beaming face, until a young
girl of some twenty summers leaned
over and kissed her fondly on cheek
and brow, saying: “Darling mamma,
brother has returned from the city
and he has brought a stranger with
him ; a traveler whom lie overtook on
the highway and as he looked weary
Joice asked him to ride. Entering into
conversation with him he found him
very entertaining and asked him home
with him for the- night. He will be
here for supper. Joice says he is
from California, is in fact, an old
miner just returning to his home af
ter an absence of many years. He
says his people believe him dead, it
having gone out that he had been
murdered for his money.” The young
girl pauses but no reply comes.
The mother sitting with her head
on her hand, with that far away look
on her sad face that speaks of a broken
heart, makes no sign of recognition
until the girl spoke of California,
when she suddenly raises her head
and looking her full in the face as she
finished the last sentence, asked :
“Where is the stranger?”
The girl while toying lovingly with
s stray curl that was slightly streaked
with gray, suddenly said without re
“What if papa was not killed after
all, and should return to us like this
man. His family think him dead.
He had a wife and two childien, a
girl and boy babies, when he left to
go to the gold mines ; and it was re
ported in the papers that a man was
murdered on the vessel he sailed on
and it was thought at first he was
killed, hut he was taken' to the hospi
tal where he lingered in a condition
simulating death -for many months.
No one'knowing him little was said nr
done about it. As time aped on he
recovered from his'hurt, the result of
f a a- • Jtoto U * kLaa-al L '-A •
a blow on the head, given just before
the landing of the vessel, the mur
derer making good his escape while
he was taken to the hospital, where
he has been retained as a sort of
nurse, being kind and attentive to
the sick. Not having recovered his
memory until a few months ago. while
employed about the building, he fell
from the stair way; fracturing his
skull, necessitating an operation that
resulted in removing the pressure
from the brain, when his Blind re
sumed its natural action and hr was
able to give an explanation of his
condition and recieved in return an
account of his long sojourn in that
place. He started home as soon as
he was able to travel. He says he
left his home twenty years ago, in
company with his wife’s cousin.’* ’
“Lois’, Lois! Child, what do you
meant You will drive ml mad.”
“Calm yourself, deal mother, 1
don’t think my papa is dead. ’• He1 will
come back like others have done.* In
fact I know he is not dead. Mother,
could you bear a great joy? What if
I should tell you this man, this strain-
ger, who says he ia Harty Wilmot,* is
yonr long lost and mourned—” "Just
then the door open and thé stranger
enters, with outstretched arms, just
as the almost frantic woman sprung
from her chair crying wildly :
“W’here ia he?” Seeing once more
the beloved form of her long lost hus
band, whom she recognized the mo
ment the well rememtiered tones fell
upon her ear, aa he cried, approach
ing with arms extended :
“Helen, wife! Thank God, once
more after so many years, we meet,
my own true wife, never to part
again in this life.”
“At last! At last! She cried, my
sun has arisen. The darkness is' dis
pelled. All is joy.” 1

During her husband’s absence she
insisted on keeping house, although
urgently pressed by her aged parents
to come with her babes and live with
them, in the home of her childhood,
in a distant state. She could not leave
her own home in the little cabin,
where she anil Harry hail been Ho
happy. Harry inherited a little for
tune by the death of a distant relative
she determined to spend it for Harry’s
children, in the way that would have
been moat pleasing to him, had he
lived. Devoting her life eichiaively
to their interests, being a good mana
ger, she had by dint of hard labor and
never tiring industry, with the united
help of the children, whom she had
given a liberal education, made the
little home what Harry found it,
where they still live in the enjoyment
of health wealth and happiness. •» »
