The "Way of True Lore ta Greenland.
Since the Danish missionaries have
gained the confidence of the natives
of Greenland, marriages in the far
North are celebrated bj , the repre
sentatives of the Church. In a recent
issne of one of the Danish papers one
of the missionaries gives the following
account of the way courtship and
marriage ar9 brought about.
The man calls on the missionary
and says, "I wish to take unto myself
. "Whom?1' asks the missionary.
The man gives her name.
"Have you spoken with her?"
As a rule the answer is in the nega
tive, and the missionary asks the
"Because," comes the reply, "it is
so difficult. You must speak to her."
The missionary then calls the young
woman to him and says : "I think it
is time that you marry,"
"But," she replies, "I do not wish
"That is a pity," adds the mis
sionary, "as I have a husband for
' 'Who is he ?" asks the maiden.
The missionary names the candidate
for her love.
"But he is not worth anything. I
will not have him."
4. "However," suggests the mission
ary, "he is a good fellow and attends
well to his house. He throws a good
harpoon, aud he loves you." '
The Greenland beauty listens at
tentively, but again declares she will
not accept the man as her husband.
"Very well," goes on the missionary,
"I do not wish to force you. I shall
easily find another wife for so good
a fellow." . ...
The missionary then remains silent
as though he looked upon the incident
as closed. But in a few minutes she
whispers, "But if you wish it "
"No," answers the pastor, "only if
you wish ' it. I do not wish to over
Another sigh follows, and the pastor
expresses the regret that- she cannot
accept the man.
"Pastor," she then breaks out, "I
fear he is not worthy."
"But did he not kill two whales last
summer while the others killed none ?
"Will you not take him now?" "
"Yes, yes; I will."
"God bless you both," answers the
pastor, and joins the two in marriage.

Therese, praying that she might die.
one sat there with her brown little
hands clinched, her eyes dry and flash
ing, and two little red spots burned on
her cheeks. It had been hours since
she had spoken to any one, and her
mother had at last left off coax i no- Rn.l
scolding and questioning.
After all, she knew why Therese sot
mere clinching her little hands. She
had told her that it would be bo, but
Therese would not listen then. The
evening meal was set and presently the

at the door, but she did not speak. He
gave her an inquiring look, but went
on into the Louse

the finishing tonches to the eupper

curly hair," answered the mother.
"One of the fine ladies from the city
has hira now. He follows her around
like a little dog. Therese is a fool to
"Hush!" said the father. "Have
you no heart?"
Then he went out to where the
daughter was sitting on the doorstep.
"Come little maid, "he said, "let us
walk to the chair and back before we
have onr BUpper."
The chair was a great boulder that
stood out away down the shore near
the water, rudely fashioned during the
centuries that it had stood there into
the shape of a huge settee. Therese
sat very still for a moment after the
father spoke, but he put his big hand
gently on her arm, and presently ehe
rose to go wituhim, mutely comforted.
"Where are you going?" called the
good mother after them. "The sup
per is ready and waiting."
"Then it will have to wait," called
back the father. "Come, little maid. "
They walked down the shore in si
lence nntil they reached the chair.
Therese climbed up into her favorite
place, her father stood by her resting
his gTay head on her knee.
"Fine laddies are fickle," he said.
"He may come back."
"I do not want him that way," she
said. "If he comes at all, he must
leave her for me. I do not hate him,
for she stole him with her ways that
"only wicked people know. But I will
not have her send him back to me."
Therese was very quiet when she
came back with her father, but the
walk had done her good, and she was
about the house after supper was
over, helping her mother as she was
used to do.
When she went to bed that night her
eyes were still dry, but she prayed
that she might bo forgiven for the
wicked things that she had thought.
For the first few weeks after she
came with her 'mother to stay at the
old farm house near 'the Biore the
Tiours and days had dragged wearily

to being amused and entertained and
there was nobody at the farmhouse to

Eleanor managed to see a good
deal of her discovery, and after awhile
ehe induced him to come to the house.
It was not lone before his coming
there was quite the usual thing. The
two women flattered the young man
outrageously, and pretty soon Otto
began to think that he was consider
erable of a fellow. .
It was then that he began to neglect
Therese. ....When he did not neglect
her, Jhe" patronized her, and that hurt
her even worse.
But Therese was an independent
little thing, and she would not stand
that. So they had their quarrel, ancL
Otto said that he was not coming to
see her any more until she was sorry
that she had talked so to him. .
He meant to punishjker. It was only
the other side of his patronizing.
Therese said very well, and that was
the reason she sat on the doorstep
wishing that she could die.
Perhaps the worst thing that he did
was when he told Eleanor about all
this. She listened to him just a little
startled, and then she laughed and
pretended to give him good advice,
while all the time he knew by her tone
that she was laughing at him and his
That made him desperately hard on
Therese, for, singularly enough, he
began to think that she had done a
monstrously clever thing in .getting
him to fall in love with her.
; He talked about himself to Eleanor
a good deal more than ever that even
ing, and when he went home he was
well started towards being a very dis
agreeable young man.
Otto had done enough, certainly, to
deserve to lose his sweetheart alto
gether and no doubt that is what
would have been if something had not
happened that brought him to his
senses. Fortunately, however, some
thing did happen.
There came a great storm one night,
and in the morning when clouds began
to scatter and the waves began to sub
side the people on the shore saw that
dnring the night a huge coasting vessel
had drifted upon the sand bar. .
She was caught there fast enough,
but it did not appear that she had suf
fered any serious damage.
When it grew calm enough, the cap
tain of the vessel sent a boat ashore
and offered large pay to men that
would come out and help throw enough
of the cargo overboard to lighten the
ship and release her from the bar.
There were plenty who were willing
to go. They went out that day and
returned at night to their homes.
There was another day's work before
them. Then it was hoped the vessel
would float clear of the bar.
Therese's father was one of the men
that went out to do the work, and on
this second morning Therese wanted to
go out with him. There was
ii.ili-n'.s'-'"lr . it ' was 1 quite calm, so
there did not seem any reason why she
should not go. Her father took her
Otto did not go. Under ordinary
circumstances he would have been one
of the first to undertake the work, but
the change that had come over him ex
tended to his habits of industry as well
as to other things.
Late in the morning of the second
day Eleanor came down to the shore,
and Otto, seeing her from a distance,
joined her there.
- "I want to go out there to the
ship," said Miss Southard.
Otto looked at the sky and shook his
, "I don't like the looks of things,"
he said, "I wish so many of our people
were not out there already."
Eleanor laughed mockingly. "So
you are afraid," she said, "I thonght
that belonged to women, but I I am
"You don't know the signs," ven
"Never mind the signs. I want to
go out there. Have you a boat?
"Then you will take me, will
not?" Her tone had loat
ring, and she was looking up at him
He hesitated a moment, and then
there came a laughing light again into
the great dark eyes of the girl, for she
saw that he had yielded.
"Wait for me here," he said, as he
started up the beach. "If you will go
of course I will take you."
Presently he returned in his dory
and took her out to where his boat, a
clever little sailing craft, was lying at
There was just enough breeze to
carry the boat along at an easy speed.
It was a glorious day, but Otto looked
troubled. The little piece of bunting
at the head of his mast flapped un
steadily, and the sea gulls were mak
ing their way shoreward.
They had gone but vjart of the
distance toward the great slffp when
dark clouds began to pile up above the

frightened. '? , .
"There is going to be a storm," she
cried: . .
They "reached the ship just as the
storm broke. Therese was standing
with her father watching the approach

ship had been abandoned.
It was an awful- moment, for the
wind began to blow a perfect gale, and
the little craft was in danger every
moment of being dashed .to pieces
against the larger one. - ; '
Otto managed to get up under the
lee, however, and then there was a
panic on board the ship, for there
were twice as' many persons as the
little boatwpuld hold, even if it could
reach the shore in that terrible storm.
Otto quickly, pushed, his boat, a? far
as he dared from the" side of the ship
and called for Therese' and her father. :
"I won't take one of you," he shouted,
"until they are in the boat." -

The respiration apparatus inrcnted
by Professor Voit, of Germany, and
recently received by the Yale Medical
School, is the fir6t to come to America.
Its purpose is to measure the oxygen
absorbed by the body and the carbonio
acid and water given off. From tho
data thus obtained the decomposition
of the body can be determined, and

experiment. They will be placed in
glass cases after having been fed on
particular kinds of food, and the vari
