piled her an accompaniment to the
music of thought and rythm, euhanciog

an organ s bss makes fitting back
ground for the lighter weaving of mcl
ody and varying air. Her sleep com
ing thus auid sweet fane es. and rock
ed to the music of wind and wave, was
dreamless ; and she awoke refreshed I
and strong. It was then with perfect
fearlessness but with exhilarating ex
citement that she flung open her case
ment and looked toward the sea. The
water was as high as at spring tide,but
she had observed it tlitU otteu.
The view was iucxpressibly grand.
It took her breath with admiration
and awe. but ats aliened no servile feir.

thought, 'Thus far shalt thou come,
and no furthei, and hero shall thy
proud waves be stayed. And she sang
out the Marseillaise, in debance or

almost to the summit cf Sumter as if
measuring arms with the giant. She
could see them leaping at the Battery
as mad with rago and eager to sweep
away the city. She could not lean for
ward to ohperve the encroaching waves
below, for the gale forbade t a miliar
approach as it shrieked furiously by.
The scene held her long by its sublim
ity, and she turned from it with a sigh,
insatiate of iU beauty. . , i
y iss Polly met her on the staircase
as she was leisurely descending, and
drew her quickly to the northern piaz
za, There the old lady dropped breath-
lesly on a seat, and pointing with both
hands, asked, y the gesture rather
than by words.
What does it mean?
Carts and buggies lined the street,
piled with oil cloth bundles, boxes
and children. Whole families were
moving hurriedly, and along the east
ern shore a sheet of white foam was
crawling in treacherously and. coiling
around the housci the sea ' serpent !
It is tho Equinoctial storm, she
said, fto"ping to her companion's ear
