What was that ?
Something glowed and glimmered like a coal
st the bottom of the cheat!
Again the poor artist's pulse dronunad in his
cars, while every atom of blood in his body
seemed rushing to and fro in the wildest confu
sion. After a little hesitation he reached down with
Ids broad-bladed pallette-knife, and gingerly
and daintily, with thrills of reluctance running
through his eagerness, fished ap the burning
coal, and blew from it the tabes, the ashes of
The coal was a large ruby. It was without

jewel within for safe keeping. Then ho exam

it was not long until the young man tbrgot to
be too particular. The pallette-knifc was no
longer swift and certain enough. With his
trembling lingers he pushed about the poor bones,
finding plenty of treasure now ; and there, right
under where ita heart rauat have been, a small
gold locket. With something of awo and rev
erence overcoming the greed which had taken
possession of him, he opened the case.
A' woman's likeliest, young and sweet, smiled

THE IMPORTANCE OF LEARNING

If singing is so important part of pub

In the face of the rocky bluff there was an
...ean-cve. A very small cave, which the fiah
ermen and other common people ignominiously
dubbed a holet It may have been larger once ;
hut at this time it was filled, nearly to the mouth,
with deep sea sand. In high water it was cov
ered entirely by the waves. But at low tide a
small boat could push its way in ; and as it af
forded a cool shelter from the summer snn, the
two friends often cast anchor there for nn hour
or so, while they ate their luncheon, or sketched
the opswite hills.
i he tide then, at ita extreme ebb, left the for
tlasr end of the sand-cavern quite hare and dry.
It was the first time that the visitor had ever
found it so. He was thinking of running his
boat agi'outul, and petting out, although there

It? He looked again more earnestly. It was
the end of a brass-bound wooden chest, protrml
inj from the sand. The glittering of a brass
nail had drawn his attention to the object.
The color rushed into Oliver Greys moody
fate, lie thought ot Captain Kid, of shipwreck
ed merchsntmen, and the Arabian Nights, allia
one flash of his vivid imagination.
Then he laughed at himself, pushing hit nut
shell of a akiff close to this buried chest, and
leaping lightly out.

With hia oar he went to work to dig a way the
sand. It waa hard work, and the perspiration
soon stood on hia forehead ; but he had brought
to light enough of the quaint, foreign-looking
box-to show that it waa no common sailor's
It was of strips of some costly oriental woods,
in dark and light, very solid and heavy, banded
together, so as to be almost covered with ita
brass-fasten ings. In half an hour he had un
covered the whole lid. The box proved to be
about four feet long, by two wide, and two deep.
At first he despaired of opening the cheat
without further implements; for the hard wood
was well preserved, ami (lie clasps scarcely rust
ed. It bad evidently been buried in dry sand
not exposed to the action of water, or even
moisture, to any great extent. ith the blade
of a stout knife, which the artist carried with
him for use of various kinds on his little expe
ditons, he succeeded, after a few minutes, in
pushing bock the simple, old-fashioned lock,
which sprang out ot its place with a Click.
Then, for a moment, Oliver hesitated.
As soon as he could command himself he cau
tiously but eagerly raised the lid.
What did he fiud 1
A corpse which looked aa if it might have
been placed there yesterday, so perfect wsa its
preservation -jammed down into this impromptu
coffin, so much too short for it. It waa that of
a noble and handsome man, not many rears ol
der than himself, whose jet-black hair fill down
in long ringlets about the velvet collar and ruf
fled shirt-front. The dress was that of 1800, or
before, when rich gentlemen yet indulged in
velvet and thread-lace. In the forehead was a
deep wound, aa of a hatchet, and there were
blood-stain over the garment. . Who could the
murdered stranger be ?
Ahl while he asked himself the question
while he gated, with lips apart, and concentra
ted looks of interest and dread a change crept
over (the inmate of the chest. The grayish hue
deepened over the face ; the features sunk, fell ;
the yellow lace mtHc. the silkrn vesfTnenis la-
pected good fortune. A group of three awaited
him as lie ironing ont upon the Leach hia friend
George with his sister and cousin.
After an eager dance at Miss Catherwood
the artist darted a look of surprise at the young
girl in white, just behind her. It only then oc
curred to him that Miss Ashleigh's name was
He put swsy the singular feeling which arose
at this coincidence, and at hreaktast was toe Hie

naturcd ta Mr. LyTton. Ifh thtrVeyes glittered
with the consciousness of secret powor.
And vet he wss troubled with a secret fear
All day it had been growing upon him that
there was a resemblance between the Ethelda of
the miniature and the living Ethelda; who
moved before him, golden-haired and blue-eyed
the quiet, almost sad, companion oi ner naughty
and brilliant cousin.
At dinner that evening he suddenly asked Mr.
Catherwood If Ethelda was a family name. In
answer he Was told the following brief story:

was so pale that Camilla would have laughed at
him, only she could never hear the story of her

A gentleman in Boston had hit atten

the street, by a woman who appeared to
be in great distress. He stopped and in
quired what troubled her so mnch. She
replied in a piteous tone, "My husband is
dead, and I have no money to bury him."
The gentleman hesitated, bat she repeat
ed her story; "If you don't believe me,
come and sec." lie followed her into the
house, and there, sure enough, her bus
band was lying in the coffin ready for bu
rial. The gentleman, pitying her. dis
tress, removed his gloves, and, giving her
enough money to bury her husband, bade
her good morning and departed. He had
gone but a few steps when he missed his
gloves, and on returning for them entered
wttfiout ceremony, and found the suppos

a few minutes before. He took his ;
