It was in tbe wilds of Wiasahicon on

that two men met in deadly conflict near
the reef which roae, like some .primeval
world, at least a tliouaund feet above, -the
dark watcra of the Wiasahicou.

"My brother," said the patriot, in a
tone of deadly hate : ,-My brother cried
for quarter on the nipht of Paoli; even as
he clung to your knee you struck that
deadly knife into his ln-ait. I will give
you the quarter of Paoli."
And hit hand was raised for, the blow,
and his teeth were clenched with deadly
haste ; lie paused for a moment, and ihen
piujfilied I he hoy's nun-, and with a rap

rock, and held him quiver tug over the
"Mercy !" gasped the Tory, turning
ashy pale by turn, at theawfuyawning
below. "Mercy I have a wile and child
at home spare me !"
The Continental, with muscular strength
gathered for the effort, shook the Hordeier
once more over the abyss, and then hissed
hit bitter tneer in the fare.
"My brother had a wife and two chil
dren. The morning after the night at
Paolt, that wife was a wiJow ; those chil
dren fatherless. Ask mercy from them !"
The proposal made by the Continental
in mockery and bitter hate, a-as taken in
to serious earnest by the terror stricken
Tory, He begged to be taken to the
widow and her children, and to have the
privilege of begging for his life. Another
moment of serious thought and the patriot
He bound the Tory's arm still tighter,
placed him on his feet, and led him thro'
the woods. A quiet cottage embossed
among the treei), broke on their, eyes.
They entered the cottage. There beside
the desolate hearthstone, sat the widow
and her children.
She sat thet-o, a matronly woman of
about twenty-eight years, with a face fa
ded by care ; a deep, dark eye and long
black hair hanging in a dishswtofed state
about her shoulders. On onelajde was a
datk hatred boy of six years, dime other
side a girl one year younger, with light
blue eyes. The Bible an old and- ven
erable volume--lay open upon the moth

himself on his knees and confessed 4hat

He bad expected the pitiful moan would
touch the widow' heart : but one relent

" Hie Lord shall judge between ua," she
said in a cold icy tone, that troee the mur
derei'o heart, "Look, the Bible is in my
lap. I will close the volume, and let my
little son place his finger at random upon
a Baa, and by that you ahull live or die."
Thia was a strange proposal, made in
good Villi, of a mad and dark superatition
of olden timet. For a moment the Tory,

The awful silence grows deeper. The
deep drawn breath of tbe broken, and the
broken giasp of tbe murderer, alone dlt
mrbed the stillness. Tbe widow and dark
haired bay are breathless. The little
girl, as the caught the feeling of awe from
those around her, stood breathless, her
face turned aside, and her tiny fingers
resting on the line of life or death.
At last gathering courage the widow
bent her eyea upon the page and read. It
was from the New Testament .

that she continued kicking the poor crea

Tbe heart rending cry of the wretched
man had drawn three of hi comrade to

dropped. The Megasra laughed, and be
