Where the Blackberries

Tlio girl stauds looking nt the pic

sorrows and passions of life! Tiio look

The gill is presently joined by a
tall, graceful woman. Suiroly gives
a slight start.

John Shirley.' I was sure of it," she
murmurs, and looks again at the pic
ture. A Hold, in which there are quanti
ties of wild llowers, tall, bountifully
colored graven, and bushes laden with
berries. In the midst of the bluck
berry bttsh s stand a boy and a girl.
Tho former is busily picking berries,
aud his face is averted ; the litter is a
chanuiug little figure in u calico blip
and a small pink sun-b outlet pushed
buck from a fair baby face, tho pout
ing lips deeply stained with blackberry
juice. A muss of gold colored curls
falls over tho childish brow.
A fellow artist has joined Shirley.
"Mrs. Seutoli und her daughter
appear to bo admiring your picture,
Shirley," ho says, "dome, let mo
introduce you. Mrs. Seatou is a
"Aud tho young girl is h -r daugh
ter?" says Shirley, iib they move
"Yes, but sho will never bo tho
lovely woman that her mother is," is
tho reply, aud Shirley smiles.
Some hours later Mr. Senton sits
before her drehhiug room lire. There
is an unusual quickening of her lan
guid pulses. In tho leaping heart of
the (ire she sees mirrored all the years
siuco she and Shirley gathered black
berries in the acre Hold, one summer
day long ago. How faithfully ho had
reproduced tho scene in his painting!
The picture in the tire shifts a lit
tle; still the Held with its wild flowers
and its laden bushes, but a young msu
and a maiden replace the boy and
baby girl. Back from tho long post
there comes to Eleanor Seatou the t e
stacy of that uuforgotton day. Sho
seems to feel again upon her lips the
kisses of her young lover, and Marts
up with Hushing cheek and throbbiug
Hut tho picture has faded from the
fire and another replaces it. A wed
ding party; the bride young and fair
of face, and white as her bridal robes;
and tho bridegroom uot tho boyish
young lover, but a middlo aged, cyni
cal looking man. Her youth aud her
innocence had caught his fancy, ami
she had bartered herself for his gold;
hici ilioed truth and honor, and, ns she
but too soon realized, happiness also.
But she soon learned tho lesson many a
woman has learned before her to hide
her aching heart beneath a smiling face.
Girlhood, happin"'t.s her own hand
had slain them. With the coming of
tier child something like peace had
crept into her heart. Then Senton
died, and she was once more free. Of
her vi.ung lover she heard nothing.
Sho kllew that ho had left the old
farm, that he had gone abroad to
utility art. Now, after all these years,
they met again. Tho farmer's son
had become a well kuowu tirliV. A
gray haired, worn faced mm replaced
the lover of her youth.
Tho pictures of tho past hao died
in tho leaping flames. Oilier scenes

How swiftly tho days and tho weeks
and the months glide by after that
night! Shirley is a frcquout visitor
at tho homo of Mrs. Seatou. Then,
when the summer comes, Eleanor Sea
ton lias a fancy to visit the old farm.
Tho artist follows her an 1 her daugh
ter. Ono beautiful evening Eleunor
stands at the old farm house door.
The air is full of tho perfume of roses.
The sky is all crimson und gold. The
woman's face is beautiful with the soft
radiance of it love dream.
Then Ray coiiiei tovards her
through the roses. The gil'a face is

blowly to her mother's side.

latter usk, wondering a little at tho
change in the girl's face.

replies. "1 went with Mr. Shirley;

Then Eleanor Senton lifts the sweet

lips to her daughter's tluMicd cheek.

Tho Miusct glow has faded from the
sky, leaving it pale and cold and gray.
Eleanor shivers iu the wurm, perfumed

weariness has returned, look past tho
brown head of the girl towards the
field "where the blackberries grow."

Curious Freak of Lightning.
From the village of Coombo Bay,
which lies about four miles from Bath,
Eugluud, comes a story of a curious
freak c lightning, according to Pear
sou's Weekly. Near the village there
is, or was when tho incident occurred,
a largo wood composed of oak aud nut
trees. Iu the center of this wood
there wus a small pasture, quito
hemmed in by the surrounding
grove. Hero six sheep wcro kept
by their owuor. The flock being
smull, the pasture only fifty yards in
extent, coutained herbage sufficient
for them. One day while tho sheep
wero iu the field a eevero thunder
storm came on, aud a fl ish of light
uiug killed simultaneously every sheep
in tho pasture. It is to bo presumed
they wero mourned by their owner,
but no doubt considering that they
might be of some profit to him, al
though dead, he sold their bodies to a
butcher iu the neighboring villugo
of Coombe Bay. Tho butcher begau
his business of skinning the lightuiug
atruck animals. To the astonishment
of the butcher and his assibtaut.ou tho
iuterior of each sheepskiu they found
printed an elaborato and faithful
picture of tho luudscapo Mirrouiiding
tho bheep pasture. These natural
pictures were iu no respect Miggestivo
of tho impressionists daubs, but the
trees, the fouoos, tho rocks, the bushes
were all as precisely roprescnte I as if
photographed upon tho sidu of tho
uniinal. Every detail was exactly
drawn. The sheep had been killed
while huddled together iu a comer
aud tho landscape in each case was the
bume, tho picture being of that part of
the surrounding sceuery which lay in
the path of the lightning flish which
killed the frightened animals.

On .' of the marine curiosities re
