fur several minutes, when wo heard
footsteps on tho stone llo.ir of the

When this man had set down the
chairs ho advanced to Mini Arnold,
nud Ratting down on ouo knee, ho
took- her hand and kissel it. He
saluted mo in ho sumo manner, much
to my amusement. Mr. Avery, how

to tho homage. I divined that it

mild authority. To my surprise tho

English was not surprising-, for Mr.
Avery, during his twenty years' resi-ilen-o

of these people the language.

wiy. "Von havo a fashion of spring

"Thero is another fiiant and two
more chairs," said tho Englishman,
with the nearest approach to guytty
which 1 had yet heard from him. And
it w:t so. A lain of groat stature
came in, bringing two eliuii .. He ro

"No; I idiould cull it linen, but of t

"It is neither. You havo perhaps

grass grows here. It is, correctly
speaking, not a grass, but a liber.
The cloth is formed by twisting tho
threads, fust into long pieces nud
then into plaits, and subjecting them
to a weaving process known only to
these people. You will notice it is

"Is there uot a moment when the

Mr. Avery smiled sadly.

.Uli KMOItR HAS A TLA.
Tho following day Mr. Avery ws a
welcome visitor. He came early to
breakfast. Iu fact, ho brought the
breakfast with him. The womuu ho
hid given Miss Arnold as a companion
attended solely to her wants. Auothor
woman of tho Jumars, sad-faced and
silent, waited upon the missionary aud
myself. The coffee was f-till hot, show-;
iug that Mr. Avery s stove, from which.
,t came, could not be very faraway.
"Are all the women here as sad
ooking as these t-o?" I asked.
"Yes all. The story of these
women is but tho story of ueaily nil.
It is true, many have their husbands
left to them, w hile the brave husbauds
f these fell lighting for their homes.
I'weuty vears ago, when the Mant-
eboos invaded this island, these
women were happy wives aud mothers.
Each had two cluldreu a boy and
a girl. In the bloody battle
that was destinod to bo the last fight
of tho Jumars or the Kaleks, their
husbands were cut down by the ruth
Itss hand of the Chinese conqueror.
Then the children fell under the eye
of the tyiant, and he took them away.
The boy i f one, she who is now with
you, struggled to remain with his
mother, and so enraged his captor
that he was killed before his mother's
eyes. The girls have never been
heard of since, and, doubtless, are
dead. But the other boy. little (ior
?ret, son of my serviug-woman,
Haukauuau, was tuken into tho palace
of Quicntal as a slave. Once, long
ago, we heard from him, and siucj
tbeu his mother has uot hud ouo joy
ful moment. At times she breaks out
iu lamentations, and at others she is
as you see her now, silent, stern and
sad. She pictures her darling boy a
suffering torture at tho hands of lib
fruel uiasteiv, aud sometimes is Iran
tie iu her grief. I am very fearful
that tho rhiucse soldiers will hear
her and understand the curses she
.alls don on the head of Governor
Heu-Ko-Hi. Death would be hei
"How terrible!" said Miss Arnold.
'This i indeed a sad country."
"It i.s indeed," replied Mr. Avery.
"There are sad hearts iu Galueor and
iu liioiuporrah. One story of wrouj
is but a type of a thousand others
The place is scourged."
"Where are our fiiends Oso Bark
ind Ciavu-'-iaak?" I asked.
"They are at their daily labor.

jnto your calico was from his cow.
To obtain for lao such luxuries as
these, bo is compelled to resort to
stealth to steal his own products, iu
fact. The tax-gatherer of Ifen-Ko-lli
is always at bund, and Oso-Hark is
ouo of n uuiuher of farmers who must
furnish the table at the governor's
palace. And (iuru-Sauk is at tho
miues. He lives on tho other side of
(iulueor, near tho road to Hiompor

him very valuable to his masters, uud

"Hen-Ko IIi lias the grace to leavo
you at loust out of tho list of task
doers," I ventured.
"Not he. I, too, was a laborer at,
tho mines, but I was ton feeble to
pleuse my taskmasters, and I was
punished. Xow I am helpless. My
arm was burned until it became
a shrunken, useless stick. Ah, tho
cruelties of the Mongols'."
He opened the bosom of his shirt
and showed us a sunken breast,
hearrcd with frightful gushes uud
"I, too, have suffered," ho s-aid
1 could not behold that sight and
retain my composure. I rose from
Iho table uud juiced backward and for
ward in the eavo.
"And is there no hand to smite this
murderer?'' I asked sternly. "Is
there no vengeance in Gods will?
Cannot the pruyt rs of those who pray
trustingly prevail against this monster
of crime V"
"Wo must be patient," said tho
aged sufferer. "Uod knows Ho is

"That is but nuturul," I replied.
Then stopping in my walk and stand

I fear ho will not seek us here."
"You have not told mo tho story of

I told him tbo story of Annio r,als
ton and the search for her. I related
t'ully my Misfortune at tho hands of
tJambok Snell and of my subsequent
ndventures, the meeting with .Miss
Arnold, the killing of Sntdl a:-d Cha
l-'ong, aud our landing iu the Sa-jrcc'
While I spoke the old man listened
earnestly. When I had finished, he
sat a moment in silent thought.
"Cricktnore, " he said, raising his
bowed head, "there in something in
ill this tbut bids me hope. A liyhl is
breaking over me. It was a I'ortuuate
thought that of fastening tho beliot
;f tho Jumavs that you wero a de
liverer come to their rescue. Let me
think. Nay, it i.s useless. I leave it
in your hands. I um old and feeble.
My strength in gone. You must work
out tho solution of the problem iu
vour own way. But bo careful! Oh,
bo careful !"
In this way wo passed most of our
time. Mr. Avery was ot'teu with us
durui' tho day, and iu the evening,
having finished their day's work,
Oso-Hark aud (iaru-Saak would
come with bim into the ea. e
aud would talk to us of tho past glo
ries of Talmooah. t grew very fond
of these Jumars. Oso-Bark especially
impressed mo us a man of chility. Ho
was thiuker, nud I found that his
words were generally wise ones.
Ono evening, as wo all sat, as was
our habit, in tho cave, I throw a
bombshell of surprise among my
friends. It was about a month after
Miss Arnold and I had taken up our
abode with Mr. Avery. 1 had been
studying the language of the Juiuarn
under tho efficient teaching of the
missionary, and I was now able to

on tho island and tho passive condi

thing on tho island that will dye to

"I'm sure I don't know," replied
Mr. Avery in surprise. "But why do
"I am very anxious to know," T an
swered. "Perhaps Oso-liurk cau tell
The question was repeated to him.
"Yea," ho replied, in th native
tongue, "thero is n tree that grows on
the mountains, tho bark of which will
stain the color of tho .lutnar skin?"
"Will you get me some of that
bark?"' I asked.
"Certainly, Oolek, I will obtain
plenty for you."
"lint what ia the world do you
