Their eldest child, John, baptized at Broadwindsor by his father in 1641. was afteiwards of Sidney Sussex t oliege, and became rector of Gi eat \\ akering, Essex, where he died in 168/, Fuller s wife died in 1643. On August 2nd, 1661, by royal letters, he was admitte*! D. I), at Cambridge, as a scholar of integrity and good learning. On Sunday August 12th, while pieaching a marriage sermon at Savoy, he was dis abled from the proceeding, and at the close of the service he was carried to his home in Convent Garden, where he diel August 16th, aged fifty-four years; he lies buiied in the chancel of Cranford Church. Some of his works ave: “ Church His tory,” “Mixt Contemplations in Better Times,” “Paneg>ric to His Majesty on His Happy Return,” “The Appeal of In jured Innocence,’' “Wounded Con science,” “The Worthies of England.” His writings were the product of a veiy original mind, and their, moral tone was excellent. He had a lively imagination, and a happy manner of illustration; his works are facetions, judicious, exact, wit ty, and appealing, and are worthy of tlie praise and respect wliich the whole nation gives them, so says William Winstanley. His diction was elegant and more idio matic than that of Taylor op Brown. “The Holy State” is tine reading and has taken rankly among the best books of characters. I think it is some of its most interesting literature that we have had so far. Sir Francis Diake judging from Fuller’s ac count of him in “English Worthies” cer tainly had a very eventful, romantic, and adventurous life. Virj>i© P.cale. JERRY VARDELL. By Exodus Keene. In Ten Chapters—Chapter VIII. In a few moments Edna Haiper and her pony were almost lost in the distance, and Jeiry Vardell was still standing there in the dusty highway, with his eyes fixed up on them. When finally a turn in the road lost them to view. Jerry came to himself again, and somehow was glad that he had'not played foot-ball that afternoon. He still felt his embarrassment, and mut tered to himself, “I know that she thought that I was a bird.” The expression was followed by that characteristic grin of his. Jeiry took a look at his coarse clothing and shoes, muttered something and grinned again. It was now late in the afternoon, and Jerry was a mile or more from the col lege. He looked toward the west as if to guess the time and turned his steps in the direction of the college. The Jerry that went back to his room that afternoon was a very different sort of a fellow from that which had strolled about the coun try roads for the puipose of seeing the country, and drowning the humiliation thrust upon him by Dick Ross, a few hours before. Long deep thoughts ab sorbed him as he made his way toward the \illage. “I wonder if she will try to get me back into the game. She’s nicer than most of the giils, Dick Ross will be sick if she begs the Coach to put me back into the game. I wonder how she’ll manage to help me. They’ll only laugh at her.” All these and other hindred suggestions occupied his thouglits so much that two or three times he took the wrong road without seeing his mistake until he had gone some distance. I saw Jerry on “Possum Avenue” the next afternoon, and notic:d that he had a fresh hai'. cut and was wearing a new suit and a new pair of shoes. Really he was a different f How “foiletly speaking,” but the freckles, peaily teeth and grin were there still. I complimented his togs and ^■entured to inquire of him about the epi sode of the previous afternoon, I had seen Edna the niglit before at the ‘ ‘ Senior Reception” and she had fold me about it; but I wanted to hear Jerry’s version, too. “How did you know about it?” queri ed Jerry, and answered his own ques tion, by saying “1 guess Miss Harper told you last night.” 1 saw that there was no need to quiz Jerry further, in the hope of getting the original story, so 1 proceeded to do some specific inquiring. “Jerry”, 1 went on, “how do you like Miss Harper? nice girl, isn’t she?” “I never met her until yes terday evening,” Jerry replied, “I reckon she's a purty good girl,” I guessed from the crimson in his cheeks and the grin, that he thought more about Edna Haiper than he was wnlling to say. “She tells me that she is going to get you hack into the foot-ball game again,” I remarked, a note of inquiry in my voice. “She’ll just make the fellows fall out with her,” he went on to say, “and Dick Ross don’t like me, and he’ll be mad with her when he finds out that she wants me put back into the game, I heard that they’ve been mighty good friends,” “Well,” said I, “you did him up once the first night you came het'e and made him terribly uneasy about his place on the team, and who knows, but what you may get his girl too.” “No danger, I never bother a feller unless he gets in my way,” said Jerry grinning. Just then we met Mr. Rowe, “Hello, Jerry!” he greeted cordially. “I want you to get into your togs and come to the prac tice this evening. The other fellows have gone out, all except Ross. The “Big Boy” stepped in a ditch last night and sprained his ankle, and its only a week now until th game with the ’Varsity, you know, and he will hav’e to take pietty good care of it if he is able to play his place, make a hurry now.” Jerry responded “allright” and was off in a swinging run to his room.

Not far from Edinburg, Scotland, there lived David Deans, a quiet, extremely pious and yet altogether a prosperous man, with his two daughters, Jeanie and Eflie. For a time they haJ lived on the land of the Laird of Dumbedikes, but on David Deans being able to secure a house and some pasture land at St. Leonards crag, about five miles distant w^e find them moving there and beginning to live the life of cattle raisers for which Deans was already famous. No doubt they felt a pang on leaving the old home, but Jeanie at least prided herself on being rid of the unwelcome presence of the young Laird of Dumbedikes. Effie Deans, not having tha same quiet nature as Jeanie and being ten years younger, caused her sister no little anxiety. She was wont to be away from home till late in the evening and many a twilight found Jeanie watching from the doo;step for her sister, anxious lest her father should come in from his work and find her absent. Upon a cer tain evening while Jeanie was thus wait ing, and when it had grown late, she saw her sister part with a man when within a short distance of the house. Jeanie, anxious for her sister’s welfare, desired to know w'here she had been, but was able to learn little, except that her young sister had been at a party enjoying the company of some of her young village friends. Would to God it had been that and noth ing else. “But thereby hangs a tale.” After the family had lived at St. Leon ards for a while, M'. Saddletree, a dis tant kinsman of Deans, comes down from Edinb\irg and desires that EfTie, then a young lass, shall go to Edinburg and live with his family, in order, that she may as sist his wife in the business, of which Saddletree himself is so neglectful. Of course Deans is loath to separate one of his daughte;s from him, but decides that she may go. Jeanie sees her sister de part with fe;lings mingled with pain and joy. With pain that any sister feels in parting with one so tender in years and joy that perhaps this may be better for Eflfte, separating her as it did from those companions wdiich she had made in St. Leonards, about whose influence there were doubts in Jeanie’s mind. Sometime passes and at the time of the famous Porfevis Riot we find that a gloom is spread over the Deans family, Effie is thrown into the Tolbooth of Edinburg for infanticide. Here we pause in our story to introduce the reader to one, Reuben Butler. We shall try to say as little as possible about characters other than Jeanie in this nariative, but a certain amount is necessary, Reuben Butler was a poor lad, a grand-son of old Bible Butler. He lived with his grandmother, his parents having died while he was quite young. He was neighbor to the Deans family and an at tachment grew up between him and Jeanie Deans Avhich could not be subdued. Now we take up the narrative again where we left off to explain something about Reuben Butler. The Deans family upon hearing of Effie’s fate were almost overcome w’ith grief, but we find Jeanie comforting her father in these moments of terrible sorrow. Jeanie goes into Edinburg and visits her sister’s prison many times but is not permitted to see her until a few days be fore the trial comes off, and then in the presence of the jailor. The scene of their meeting is very touching. Jeanie hopes that Effie will tell her the facts, but she goes away after an hour with no mote knowledge of them than she had before. During Effie’s imprisonment, Jeanie is ad vised to give false evidence in hen sister’s trial and thereby save her. Effie for a time is wroth because her sister will not give this evidence but later she begs Jeanie not to tell a lie for her sake and so we find the time approaching for the trial and yet no gleam of hope has come to the unfortunate Effie. David Deans had aged very rapidly during these trying days and the approaching trial finds him almost ivercome. However he will not submit to lis feelings and on the day of the trial »■ es with Jeanie and together tliey enter ti e streits of Edinburg already crowded with curious people awaiting the coming forth of Etfie out of the Tolbooth. Even this motley crowd liad respect for David upon wliose face shone the light of Christianity mingled now with so much grief. The trial begins and David Deans takes a seat where he cannot see the face of his wayward daughter then on trial, but the test is too much for him when Jeanie does not give the evidence that would save her sister’s honor and he falls forward in agonizing faint. Jeanie runs to his side and laying his head upon her bosom tries to comfort him. They carry the old man to an ante-room where he gains conscious ness after a while. •leanie secs him safely to Mr. Saddle tree’s and finding that he will recover, asks and obtains his blessing on her in tended action, David Deans little dream ing what it was. Jeanie then leaves Edin burg, the scene of so much unhappiness, and makes preparation to go to London, there to seek her sisten’s pardon on her knees before the majesty of England. Heie we see an interesting scene between Jeai;ie and the young Laird of Dumbe dikes. To him Jeanie goes to borrow money with which to make her journey. Dumbedikes takes her into his den and Dr. J. H.
