within had reached the roof, and soon af
ter the whole line of them flashed into
conflagration. Meantime the lurid ele
ment poured out from the windows, ran
upward licking the combustible front, and
streamed in a waving, dazzling pyramid,
high over the top of the mansion, far in
to the blue firmament. Millions of sparks,
accompanied by volumes of rolling smoke,
sailed down the sky before the breeze,
completely obscuring the heavens at in
tervals, though accasionally this thick
canopy partially blowing aside, the clam
moon was seen peacefully shining down
through the rent, in strange contrast to
the otherwise terrific scene. The roar of
the conflagration had now become intense
ly loud: and, to add to the horror, there
began lo be heard the awful sound of tim
bers falling within the house.
Mrs. Stewart had watched the fire in
silence, her hands clasped, and lips part
ed, ever since Juba had disappeared with
in the house. Each moment appeared
an age lo her. At last the suspense, thus
lengthening out interminably, as it seem
ed, became intolerable.
"Oh ! it is vain.' she cried, making a
new effort to rush into the flames, "he
cannot find my boy. Let me go myself.
For the love ol God-"
But at that instant, through the smoke
that almost hid the only window that was
I not already on fire, appeared the faithful
Jurm, holding -aloft the infant. The flames
were all around, and to - moment more
would overtake him. He made a rapid
gesture tor some one to approach.
Four of the male, comprehending 'his,
wish, snatched a blanket, and rushed
promptly forward. The heat was intole
rnhle. but thei disregarded it, and stand
ing beneath the window.-with the blan"
ke( outstretched, ihey shouted to Juha to
throw the child toward them. . He had,

he bad fought the ' good fight," that the
goal Was won." God gave him strength
to forget the agony of his crisped and man
gled body, and to remember only that be
was going to bliss everlasting.
Thus, over the renewed sobbing of the
spectators, over the wild shriek of his mis
tress as she rushed toward him. over the
roar and cracking ol the conflagration,
there rose, like a trumpet, ihe incessant
cry, "Hallelujah! Halleluiah I Hallelu
jah I" -
One would not have thought that it was

They reached him, stooped over him,
would have raised him. But at that mo

and then fell lifeless hack, a "Hallelujah"
still trembling on his tongue.
And so he died. His grave has a mar-
ble tablet, with the words " Faithful unto
death." What nobler motto-could there

she had displeased me exceedingly, by re

punish her severely. I was very serious
all day. and upon sending her to her little
