It was midsummer in the mountain? and Lilian Ferguson ha.l never seen a fairer scene than the billows of blue hills that lay stretched out before her, with here and there the flash of a half hidden lake, or the ribbon-dike glitter of a tiny river. Shu stood leaning ag dust the rustic cedar post th.it formed the support of the hotel pia'a. while her mo lent lil tlo trunk and traveling-bags were piled up at the rear. . "IWt fret, miss" sai I the landlady, who was bustling in and out. "The stage will be along soon." "Oh, I am in no hurry for the stag'' .lid Lilian, pleasantly. "I could stand ami look at this beautiful landscape all day." "Ain't that strange, n'w!' reflective ly uttered Mrs. IVek, the landlady. "Me and Perk, we never think about it at all." "Is the ptajr.i often as late as this?" said Lilian, glancing at her neat little silver watch. ".Not generally," said Mrs. Peck. "Hut t day they're waiting, at Well Station, for t ho do:tf-and-duinb gentle man." for whom y" said Lilian, in amaze ment. "For the deaf-and-dumb gentleman, miss," explained Mrs. Peck. "A cousin of our minister's, up at Crest Hill, He's been down to New York for treatment; but deary me, tlure ain't no treatment can ever do him any good. As deaf tis a a' one, miss, and never spoke an intelligent word since he was born. Hut they do say he's a very learned in in, in spite of all his drawback." "I'm afraid he won't be a very lively traveling companion," sail Lilian, smiling. "No, calculate not," said Mrs Peck, in a mat ter-of-fact sort or way. . Just at that inoine.it a b.ix-vvagon drove up; tlr charioteer handed out a valise, and assisted a young lady to alight. 'lias the stage gone?" she cried. Hinging aside her veil, and revealing a very pretty hi tinetto face shaded by jetty f tinges of hair and Hushed with excitement. "You're just in time, miss," said idrs. Peck, peering down the winding road, which her experienced eye could (race, when no one's else was of any avail. 'It's a-comin' now!" Hut Lilian Ferguson, who had been gazing at the newcomer earnestly, now came forward with an eager smile and an outstretched hand. Surely i am not mistaken," said she, "and this is Kulali - Morton?" "Lilian Ferguson! Oh. you darling, I am so glad to see you!" cried the stranger. "Hut where on earth did you come from?" And thus met the two lovely girls who had graduated just a year ago from Madame l)e 'J'ournaire's fashion aide boarding-school in New York, and who had not seen each other since. Just at this moment, however, there was no time for explanations. The ponderous stage, relic of a forgotten generation, rolled up., with a creak of leathern curtains, tramp of horses, and a general confusion of arrival, to the broad wooden steps of the hotel. The sun was already down. In the twilight, Kulalie and Lilian could only dis.eover'that the stage contained but one other occupant, a man, who leaned back in tne far corner, with the top of his face partially hidden by a largi- wide-brimmed hat, and its lowpr part wrapped in the folds of a Persian silk Docket-handkerchief. He inclined his head courteously as they entered, and moved a handsoina traveling-case which lay on the middle s -at, as if to make room for them. -Is there another passenger?" said Miss Morton, with a little, nervous start. "It's only a deaf-and-dumb gentle" man," Lilian explained, her eyes full of soft pity. "The landlady told in; about him." "What a nuisance!" cried Kulalie, "I had hoped we should have the stage to ourselves. But now, dear," as she settled herself in the moss comfortable corner, "tell me what this unexpected eut 'miiter weans." Ct Citam VOL. VI. "It means," said Lilian, with a shy smile, "that I am going to be nursery governess at Chessington Hall, up among the Adirondacks that is, if 1 give satisfaction. I was engaged by letter from the K.lueational Bureau, a week ago." "What a singular coincidence!" said Miss Morton, shaking her cherry-colored bonnet-.itrings. "And I am going to be companion to old Mrs. Orove, of (irove llookery, the very next place to Chessington Hall. How I do envy yon, Lilian!'' "Knvy me, EulalieV" ' Yes. Haven't yoi heard about It V" said the brunette. "The Chessington children, your future charges, arc motherless, don't you know? They ire under the care of an auut, so Mrs. (irove told me; and there is a hand some widower and interesting young bachelor at Chessington Hall." Lilian colored, hotly. "Neither of whom I ever expect to meet," said she. "It will bo your own fault if you don't," observed Miss Morton. "Why. my dear, here is your career all chalked it'll for you. Sentimental widower, with lots of money pretty governess mutual fascination growing devotion--'"'''', a wedding! Hey! presto, your V tit ne is made!" "Kulalie, how can you talk so?" cried Lilian Mushed and indignant. "I am not on , t tiusbiind-biinting expedition; I st in simply trying to earn my own liv ng." "The more goose you, to neglect such an opportunity as this," said Kulalie, laughing. "If you don't try for the widower, shad! (Jrovo U iokery is only half a icilefrom Chessington Hall, after alt; and a rich husband would solve the J r iblem of my life at mice.'' "Thu is too ridiculous, Kula'ie!" said Lilian. "1 could not respect myself if I were to plot and plan like this. 1 know it is unjust; but you have made me dislike Mr. Chessington already." "The more the better." said Miss Morton. "There will be all the bi-tter chance for me. They say he is very handsome: anil one could easily send the two children away to boarding school. I can assure you, I'll have no old-maid aunts and interfering uncles about the premises." "Kulalie, let us talk of something else." said Lilian, resolutely. "Tell me all that has happened to you since graduation day." Kulalie laughed out a merry, ringing laugh. "Well, if you must know," said she, 'I've been trying my best to get a nice husband, but without any success." "Is matrimony, then, the en ! and aim of all the world ?" said Lilian, with (pieetily disdain "As far as I tun concerned --yes," ac knowledged Miss Morton, with charm ing frankness. "Pardon me, Kulalie," said Lilian, "but it seems to me that you h tve de generated frightfully since those dear old days at Madame de TournaireV Miss Morton yawned. "How tedious all this is!'- said she. ! "Miss Ferguson turned lecturer, eh? How I wish that poor fellow in the corner wasn't deaf and dumb! I'd tlirt with him, just to aggravate you, Lily!" Lilian inado no answer, she leaned her head out of the stage window, and watched the purple dusk creep up the mountain side, counting the stars t.s one by one they shone out. Anything was better than Eulalie's shallow chatter! (irove Hookery was soon reached, and Miss Morton bade her old schoolmate an effusive farewell. "I see that the old lady has sent the carriage to meet me," said she. '-(lood-by, Lily. You must be sure to intro duce me to the charming widower when I come over. An- rvrofr, darling an fruir'." The deaf-and-dumb gentleman left the stage very soon. Miss Ferguson watched with some interest, but no carriage of any description seemed to be watting for him. He disappeared into the woods like a shadow, and vanished from her sight. "I suppose, poor fellow, that he lives near here," thought she. "How dread ful it must be, thus to be cut off from all companionship with one's fellow beings!" Hut even while these reflections pass ed through her mind, tha stage stopped again, before a glittering facade of lights, half-veiled in swaying summer foliage Chesshigton hall. "Here you are, miss," said the driver. Through the summer evening dusk, Lilian could see the marble-railed ter race and the broad carriage-drive, while two child-figures danced up and down, and uttered joyful exclamations of wel comelittle Blanche and Alice Ches ington. "Are you the new governess?"' said they. "A re you Miss Ferguson? Wel come welcome to the Adirondack! We are so glad that you have come!" PITTSBOltO', And in an instant their arms were twined around Lilian's neck. At the end of it month Lilian Fergii son felt completely and thoroughly at home with her new pupils. They had ranged the woods, and vi:. ited all the grottos and cascades; they had gtirrouniied her with an atmos phere of the sweetest affection. Mrs. ll.irtleigh, their mint, was ciiially kind; and Alfred llartleigh, theintcrestingyoiing uncle, had already taken her into his confidence i s to the beautiful bride he was going to bring home soon. Hut it certainly was vc-y strange that she had never seen Adrian I 'hess ington himself, the father of her lovely little pupils. I'nlil one pleasant morn- -ing, when, just as she had come mil to receive Miss Fiilald- Morton, who had i driven over in the (irove llookery car- riage to call, a tall, handsome gentle- man entered the room, with Mrs. llartleigh on his arm. "The deaf-and-dunib gentleman!" : Lilian involuntarily exclaimed. "Poor fellow, so it is!" said Miss i Morton, who advanced airily, shaking I out the light muslin flounces of her j dress. "How he does haunt us, to-be- ' sure!" "Ladies," said the deaf-and-dumb centleman, "you are mistaken. I can : hear and speak, to-day, as well as any body. 1 should have spoken to you a month ago in the stage-coach, if it had not been for the unfortunate circum stance of my having just been to the dentist and had my lower jaw broken : in the extraction of a double tooth. 1 perceive that you wero mistaking mo for my unfortunate friend Mr. Denton, a deaf-mute, who lives near hero; but I he had been detained until the next day, and with my bamlanged javv.it; win impossible for me to speak and cx phin matters." j Kulalie Morton's face glowed scarlet. I she literally knew not what to say. ; Hut Lilian Ferguson stood calm and unmovtd. "Then," she said, smiling, "all oar : sympathy was thrown away upon you.'' He inclined his head. "Kx.iclly," he said. "I found, the I ne.xl day, that it was necessary to put i myself under the care of an Albany i .surgeon, so that I have been a suit of exile for a few weeks. Pardon my be ing so late to welcome you to Chessing- ton Hall. Hut the welcome is none the less warm because it is tardy." j Kulalie Morton nev er came to Chess ington Hall again, nor could she so ; j much as think of her conversation in the stage, that night, without hot in. j dignation at herself. "What a fool I was!" she cried. Mr. Chessington, however, mil -li as ; he liked and admired Lilian Ferguson, ; iicvvr asked her to marry him. "When I w its w idowed once it was forevi r," In- said. And Lilian never coveted the jirizr til his heart; perhaps hecatis" she was engaged to a rising young clergyman, near Philadelphia. "If only I had Lily's opportunities!" siiid Miss Morton. "Hut I wret ked mv chauees when 1 spoke out my mind j freely before the deaf-and-dumb gentle man." ll'hn t-'nrr-st (Irons. 'Hie Norwegian Horse.

Scot t, of New Lon don, the veteran diver, who worked on the schooner Teazer in New Haven harbor, last spring, -ays the New Haven llfjintn; is a wonderful man in ; his business, and carries on the largest individual wrecking concern in the 'country. He is a large, genial, daring person, and one to w'.oto the incessant dangers of a diver's life are fascinating, i Wherever a wreck occurs on the coast , from Martha's Vineyard to Harnegat, the gallant captain is generally called in counsel, and he never gives up a I wreck when there is any chance of ! raising it.

His inves i ligations in these great oyster gardens 1 are very satisfactory to oyster raisers, i They are able to ascertain just what condition their crops are In. I Captain Scott's latest task has been : the locating of the barge President, containing 11 tons of block tin and -JO tons of steel wire. This cargo was en route to New Haven from New York, where it had been reshipped by the im porters, and wtn in charge of the New York Lighterage Company. The Presi dent vviis being towed in company with other barges, and it is believed that she struck a rock oil pcntield reef, near i Bridgeport. Captain seott was offered '' $l'"00 to locate the vessel, the value of its freight amounting to a very huge i figure. His lishing for her has j been conducted on a very extensive J scale. Search for the vessel was begun ' off Southport, nearly three miles from slmre, and at lirst a clean sweep of the ! bottom was made toward Stratford light, one-half mil-- in width and six miles in length. Two tugboats, the T. A. Scott and Alert, a schooner, live small row boats iin I li men, together with several miles of stout lines, colt, i stittited Captain Scott's fishing kit.. The sweep was made !y the tugs sta tioned half a mile apart and connected by a hawser with pendants and buoys alternating so that the line was kept close to the bottom, while the tugs ' moved very slowly forward. It re : ipiired !' days of this kind of subma I rino surveying before the sunken barge ! was discovered, and then it was found I I.1, miles off shore and " miles from : Petilield reef, far away from the ap- proximate position pointed out to Cap : tain Scott. Utiring the progress of i this gigantic fishery Captain Scott i found ii sunken schooner with it load of ; scrap iron oil Southport, the timbers bis j ing almost eaten away by worms; then , he found a barge loaded with coal. bear ing south southeast, three miles from . Southport. and close by another schoon. t-r loaded with stove coal. Several ' days afterwards, he came upon wrecks of tlu-eii vessels Inch n with conl. close .:..., ;iml .. .,, ..

He has lost but one loan, and that was his son, who was drowned while work'ng on the wreck of the Nt'.rragansett off the Connecticut river in IS!. lie takes all risks himself, and never asks his men to go where he dare not. A difficult job suits him? because there's more headwork an I more money in it . The greatest depth Captain S;-ott has successfully worked in is KM feet. 11" has worked at a depth of W feet for , several hours on a sunken sloop at ! PrisnO ferry. At the time the Knglish steamship Scotland went down off ' Sandy Hook, Captain Scott was em ployed by the government to clear the channel of this dangerous wreck so well ' known to mariners. This was in lSii'.t and two years' time was necessary in i which to tear the vessel in pieces and : remove the cargo. He was under water i't hours altogether at work on i this task. While at work on the City i of Columbus, which was lod recently ; off liay Head, he experienced rough j weth r. and his air supply pipe became 1 entangled in the chains of the wreck, j i 'I he air was cut oT for a moment, but ! the kink in the hose was found in time i to prevent serious results.

In erecting the gr rat statue of Lib erty two things had to be considered that seem very trilling, and yet, if ne glected, might destroy the statue in one day, or cause it to crumble slowly to pieces. One is the sun, the other is the sea-breeze. Hither of these could destroy the great copper figure, and something must be done to pre vent such a disaster. The heat of the sun would expand the metal and pull it out of .shape precisely as it does pull the P.iooklyu liridgo out of shape every day. The bridge is made in four parts, and when they expand with the heat of the sun they slide one past the otlier, and no harm is done. The river span rises and lalls day and night, as heat and cold alternate. The great copper statue is likewise in two parts, the framework of iron and the copper covering; ami while they are secun ly fastened together, they can move one over the other. Kach bolt will slip a tritte as the copper expands in the hot August sunshine, and slide back again when the freezing winds blow and the vast figure shrinks together in the cold. Hesides this the copper surface is so thin and elastic that it will bend slisrhtly when heated, yet keeping its general shape. The sa t air blowing in from the sea hits thin lingers and it bitter, biting tongue. If it linds a crack where it can creep in between the copper surface and iron skeleton, there will be trouble at mice. These metals do not agree together, and where there is salt moisture in the air they seem t quarrel more bitterly than ever. It seems that every joining of points of copper and iron makes a tiny battery, and so faint shivers of electricity would run through all the statue, slowly corroding and eating it into dust. This curious, silent, and yet sure destruction must be prevented, and so every joint throughout the statue, wherever copper touches iron, must be protected with little rags stuffed between the metals to keep j them from quarreling. It is the same wherever two different metals touch jut bother. Imagine what a treinen dus battery Hie Liberty would make, with its tons of copper surface and I monstrous skeleton of iron. However, a little care prevents all danger, a provisions will bo made, of course, for keeping the met ids from touching each other. A l.eadville ('nmhlintr Hon.
