AUJNT CHARLOTTE’S YARN, “ Now, Ida, my dear girl, take my advice,” said Aunt Charlotte to her giddy young niece, “ and don’t imperil your future happiness nor be gn^ilty of injustice by slighting the man to whom you have given y.our troth, or by foolishly teasing him in orddr to test his affections. There is a story in my own memory that I have never told y o u ; and I could not now bring myself to do 80 only that I see you do not like me to lecture you, and I wish you to learn wisdom by an easier tnethod than that of bitter eimferience. “ When I was a young ^ 1 we lived, as you know, in Canada, in one of the smul lake-shore towns between Toronto and Kingston. Your grandfather was a man of note in the town, and I was a good deal sought after. I was giddy, too, and selfish, though I did not then consider myself so. I had many admirers and suitors, among whom the one I liked best was Harry Vane. From my very infancy Harry had been my gallant, and though I sometimes pretended to be, and sometimes really was, jealous of him or otherwise offended, and he the same with regard to me, we always made up again and were better friends than ever. There was not really any engagement between us, though Harry had asked me to form one; but my parents objected to long engagements, and we were not ready to marry. Matters stood thus when, early one spring, we had an addition to our list ^ beaux in the form of a dashing fellow, an Englishman, sent out jy a wealthy firm of the mother coun-trv for the Duroose of establishing an flgency ^ headquarters had been in Montreal, but he now announced his intention of makmg our town his home during the summer. “ He had a good deal of leisure, and spent no inconsiderable part of it at our house, or in promenading the streets with me. I could scarcely set my feet on the sidewalks without encountering him. His name was Bowns, and he claimed to be of aristocratic parentage. He was handsome and affable, though rather supercilious, withal very distinguished in appearance ; so no wonder the girls ot our set wished to attract his attention, and were envious of me, Of course I was proud of my conquest, and perhaps carried myself a little haughtily in consequence. For some time Harry pouted, then openly remonstrated, even pleaded ; but as I angrily asserted my independence, he finally desisted from all apparent notice of the m atter; and whenever we met he treated me with indifferent courtesy, an 3 altogether showed a manly self-command which I did not fail to note and admire. Still I must confess that at that time I gave very little thought to Harry or to any of my old admirers ; it seems wonderful to me how completely I was fascinated by the prepossessing stranger. “ T» be sure he flattered my vanity not a little, and my empty head was turned by his lavish, adulatory style of compliments. He raved about my eyes of heavenly blue, the golden glory of my mermaid locks, my swan-like neck, and an endless flow of bathos that ought to have disgusted me, but did n o t ; and so I listened and he ranted. About the middle of August we made up among our set a picnic party to drive out to Bice Lake Plains and spend the day in boating on the lake, gathering huckleberries, wild flowers, etc., and (generally amusing ourselves. “ You must know that there is an irregular chain of small lakes extending transversely from the Bay of Qainte, near the eastern end of Lake Ontario, to the eastern end of Lake Superior. Bice Lake is the first of the chain counting from Ontario, and it lies at a distance of from two to three hours’ drive from several small towns on the frontier. We had an early breakfast, and set off at eight o’clock, so that we need not be on the road during the heat of the day. There were several carriages ; the one in which I rode was a handsome barouche hired from a livery stable for the occasion, and by my side sat the all-conqnering Mr. Bowns. “ For some unexplained reason Harry Vaco did not go in any of the carriages, but was mounted on horseback, and he rode gayly by the side of first one vehicle, then another. When we had gone a little distance out of town the country air, sights and sounds were so exhilarating that we in eur carriage began to sing. Harry, hearing us, rods up and joined in the song, he being particularly fond of singing. Shortly we struck off into an old ditty which he and I had sung together countless times when we stood each first in the esteem of the other and no gay stranger had come between us. For a stanza or two Harry sang bravely, but when we came to the refrain suddenly his horse bolted and he rode off^ catching at his hat with one hand and seeming to draw rein with the other. The remainder of the party thought his horse had shied and run away with him, but I saw thoroughly the whole manoeuvre, and a sudden pang shot through my selfish heart. “ On reaching the lake at the point agreed upon, we separated into little companies, and wandered about at wiU, but keeping within the vicinity of the camp until the horn sounded for din-ner. We were all, as is usual at picnics, in a hungry mood, and we did not dine mincingly. “ After dinner we lolled about on the grass for awhile, then formed plans for the afternoon’s campaign. There were near by several canoes or row-boats that were kept for hire, and a fair proportion of our band decided in favor of an excursion on the lake, some parties going in one direction, some in another. Three boat loads, twelve individuals in all, determined to pay a visit to the tower on the opposite shore of the lake, and about three miles farther np. As we divided ourselves into parties of four, 1 felt an irrepressible desire to have Harry Vane, who had declared for the tower, in our boat, so I called out: “ ‘Harry, are you coming with us?’ meaning bv us, Bowns and myself. “ I shall never forget the look of mingled pain and pleasure with which he replied: *No, Charlotte; George Law is quartered in your boat.’ “I t was half-past three o’clock when we entered near the tower and drew the boats up on the beach. This tower was an octagon building three or four stories in height, consisting of only one room to each story, with a narrow spiral staircase leading from base to summit. At the top was an observatory not much larger than a good-sized bird-cage, which had once been furnished with a small .telescope mounted on a swivel, but was now reduced to a very commonplace spy-glass. The basement was a deep, dungeon-like hole, with a grated door through which one entered a subterranean passage leading out to the shore of the lake. This tower, with its lean-to kitchen or, rather, cook-house, was built on a hill at the distance of about two hundred yards from the water’s edge, and it was the product of a quixotic Englishman, an old bachelor’s fancy. The whimsical man did not carry out his orig^al intention of making a complete miniature castle of the feudal times, but suddenly abandoned the enterprise and went as he came, nobody knew whither. This odd little tower had been surrounded on all sides, save the deep bank next the water, by a diminutive moat, which was now a dry ditch filled with weeds and wild flowers; there, too, was the wreck of a toy-like drawbridge, and within the enclosure were . several quaint-loeking garden-chairs cut into the stumps of trees. There was a family residing in the house, at least they made it an occasional residence during the summer, but that da7 they were absent, and the garrulous old servant in charge showed us over the premises. “We stole down by the light of a lantern through the underground passage old spy-glass; sat in the grotesque chairs, and gathered bouque'ts from the quondam moat. ' All these vagaries consumed so much time that, before we were aware, the sun was going down the westward slope in a way that, when we noticed it, sent us to our boats with speed. We were soon gliding over the water in jovial spirits and at a fair rate of motion toward the camping place on the shore next home. The three boats kept near together, and as we went we sang Tom Moore’s Canadian boat song. Ju st as our voices were ringing out “ ‘ Bow, brothers, row, for the stream runs fast, The rapids are neai. and the daylight is past,’ a sudden breeze almost took the light umbrella with which I was screening mvself and companion from sun and wind (we had left our bonnets at the camp) out of my hand. The breeze subsided for a moment, then came again more vigorously than before, and held on steadily. Generally or frequently a stiff breeze rises on those lakes about or soon after sunset, but now the sun was certainly half an hour high. Sudden squalls, especially when thunder clouds are hovering near, accompanied by dangerous disturbance of the water, are unpleasantly often the concomitants of boating on those shallow lakes. “ Looking around the horizon we discovered the cause of the suddenly rising wind. A heavy pale of _ black clouds coming up behind us in the northwest were spreading themselves along the northern horizon and extending upward almost to the zenith ; and at the same time we began to hear the thunder mutter and see the lightning play, though not very near. The weather-wise ones of our party said the shower was spending itself north of us, but we might get a sprinkling from Us skirts, and the wind was sure to be troublesome. Meanwhile we had crossed the lake and were making our way down to the landing adjoining, which was ourcanm, keeping close in shore to avoid the commotion of the water. “ There is a peculiarity in that lake. The wild rice, from which it takes its name, grows over almost the entke bottom of the basin, and when at its tallest the grain lies floating on the surface of the water, and the Indians, when it is ripe, paddJeround and gather it into their canoes. This, however, makes navigation to ordinary rowera rather difficult; and where the basin is particularly shallow or when the watere are agitated by storms the passage is perilous. “ I soon perceived that Bowns and George Law were by no means masters of the situation ; and oh, how I longed for the tried and trusty arm of Harry Vane to steer our giddy little skiff, ju s t then Harry, who was ahead, ci^ed out to us to make for an islet, a^ little way out in the lake, on one side of which there was not much rice, aad which had been used by the Indians as a landing-place, as it sloped gradually into the water ; he said we had better land ther:; and wait for the squall *to pass over. “ The rowers turned the boat toward the islet and pushed out vigorously, I meantime holding the umbrella low like a tent or awning over my own and Nellie Morton’s heads, for now i|^ was raining. Again Harry called to us to shut down the umbrella, lest it should catch the wind and upset our skiff, and the next moment, Bowns, who had not said one word to us girls since the wind sprung up, snapped out, ‘Yes, certainly,* down with that nmbrella I’ “ What with a sense of danger, and what with sudden consternation a t being spoken to in such a tone and manner, I had no self-command, and in shutting the umbrella I somehow lost my balance, and the next instant I was sinking in the blinding waters. “ I must have risen very quickly, for the boat was there and I laid my hand on its side, but quick as a flash Bown’a hand came down on mine, and though he afterward said that he tried to lay hold of mo to assist me, I know that he dislodged my hand. True, I should have upset the boat, and just as tr\ie he flung me off to perish. As I sank again, even through the gurgling in my ears, I heard tbe voice of Harry Vane, * Courage, Charlotte, I ’m ooming.* “ Again I rose and again sank. Then I ceased to struggle and the pain of sufiocation was gone. I knew that I was dyinsr, and like electricity all my past life flashed before me. I had no terror of death, but I longed to ask Harry’s pardon. Bowns I seemed to have forgotten. The tall rice was all about me, and I knew no more until a deadly sickness and great pain woke me to consciousness. Was it the g u llin g water or human speech that rumbled in my ears ? I did not know, I did not care; I only wished not to disturbed—^ not to s ^ e r . “ Slowly my comprehension returned and I found myself on a bed in the log-cabin of the man who* kept the boats on hire, and it was night, for candles were burning. Some of my companions of the picnic were there, but I was too ill and weary to ask questions. “ When next I opened my eyes it was daylight and my father and mother were bending over me. “ Suddenly I remembered something of the drowning and cried out, ‘Where is Harry ? He said he was coming.’ “ They hushed and soothed me and I suppose adrunistered a narcotic, for I have only a faint recollection of lying on a bed in a covered conveyance and of being aimoyed by the jolting. “ The next time I awoke my mind was clear, I recollected all, and begged to be told how I was saved. My friends evaded this question, and my suspicions being aroused, I demanded to see Hany Vane. Finding they could no longer put me off, they told me that Harry rescued me and swam with me toward the islet, where one of the boats had just landed. Another gentleman waded out breast high to meet him, and drew me to the shore, supposing that Harry was following. But Harry did not follow, and in the excitement about me he was not missed until too late. Whether he was exhausted or whether he took a cramp no one could tell. This only 1 know and never shjdl forget : Harry Vane was drowned in sav-inffij^ ylife. T h is ahw) I know : I shall, Bowns, I hated then, I hate still, the sound of his name. He left our town almost immediately after the occurrence and I never saw face after the day of the picnic.” Typhoid feyer. The British Medical Journal finds a new text for its advocacy of good drainage in an outbreak of typhoid fever in Lord Cadogan’s family, in London. The Journal says; “ Much sympathy is felt in London society at the outbreak of typhoid fever in Lord Cadogan’s family, and the circumstances are not without an important public lesson. The conditions under which it occurred resemble in a remarkable degree those which gave rise to the outbreak of typhoid fever among the visitors at Londesborough Lodge, of whom the Prince of Wales was one of the sufferers. There are six children in the family, and they had been for a few weeks in occupation of Lord Elcho’s town house. No. 23 St. James’ place, w h e re three of them were seized with typhoid fever within a few days of each other. Lord Chelsea, who had a severe attack,’is progressing favorably, although still very weak. The other children are doing welL Tracing the cause of the outbreak, it appears that the house has the characteristic sanitary .defects of so many of our town and tsountiy houses. The closets, kituated in the center of the house, entCT on the bedroom landings; the soil-pipes are not ventilated, and, as there are sometimes downward currents through the ventilating shafts of the doseta, sewer air easily finds its way into the house. The wastes-pipes of the water cisterns pass directly inty the soil-pipes. The lessons of the most impressive events are speedily forgotten, and so it would appear tha^ in many of the most luxurious mansions of this country, * t te teachings of the Prince’s illness,’ which at the time were echoed by a thousand tongues, have passed un h e^ed .” Snperflclai Acqnirements. A writer says : “ The boy or girl who can give the name of every river and the height of every mountain in^ Asia, the age of every reigning sovereign m Europe, the date of every battle m America, can hardly be as well off for all this burdensome knowledge as one who knows the elements of human physiology and anatomy, who is taught more of 3ie knowledge useful in after life, and can tell how to help himself or another in case ol accident or emergency. The boy who is to go into active life and the girl who is to become head of a household, will have little occasion and less opportunity to use the greater part of the ‘ crammed ’ lessons so industriously accumulated during their school years. A fair knowledge of the rules th at are at the bottom of all healthful activity, a general ac-aquaintance with anatomy and a well-grounded taste for natural sciences, will all grow into and become part of their daily lives, and such tlungs are far less likely to make pretentious men or women than that kind of smattering ‘ n^emorized ’ facts and dates and ‘ words,* which is too often the penalty of superficial study.” Transplant the early and medium sorts of cabbage from the seed beds and sow for late.
