v Ajrattiing sound attracted his at

with a couple of seats, and drawn
by. h rough small horse a "buck
board, " rn short, familiar enough to
New England eyes, but a most re
markable vehicle to those of Robert
Arnold, who had never before seen
anything like it r; iii any quarter of
the globe. " -
Its occupant, besides the Iwy who
drove i; it, was a j oung lady in a
careless wrao er' shawl, and a hat

scended without a word, and float

brief leisure, bad come out to snun
the morning gale.
. 'That! who? Oh, lier. She's
one of them hauled mealers."
"One of tchat did you say?"
"Mealers hauled mealers."
' "What under heaven is a hauled
mealer?" demanded Robert, com
:,Tlie clerk surveyed him with a
contempt but slightly tinged with
"Why, where were you brought

sleep out, and conie in for meals.
When they're hauled in buckboards
like that one, they're; hauled meal
ers. See? Guess you ain't one of
our country people."
'HTes, I am. I was born one, at
least ; but it's fifteen years since
I've been in the United States, and
I never came to Mount Desert be
fore, and never heard of a mealer.
Do you know this lady's name ?"
"Well, yes, but it's kind ol slipped
iray memory for the moment. Musty
-Mustard Musgrove. That's it
Miss Musgrove. She's stayin'
over to one of them small cottages
on the bank, and she's made an ar
rangement, with Ira Higgins's folks
to be hauled down to her meals."
By a liappy' -chance, as Robert
considered .:.it; -he found himself,
wheri.b-strolled in to a belated
breakfast, : seated opposite the
4hauled:. uiealer." She seemed to
have no party with her, but a pretty
girri4n-,jblu, boating suit had
pulled ic "chair close to hers, and
wa&chattingtaway in girl fashion,
whileMissr Musgrove trilled with

neither, detected nor suspected this
cltee-ebseryatiouon the part of her
silent ria-a-xis. . She saw only a
gentleman like, taciturn young
uiau, nbstH-bed in, his breakfast or
his dinner. "R:ithcr.an uucoiiiinoii
face," she said to herself, "not
tjuite American" and then she for
got him. She usually brought a
book or newspaper with her to ta
ble, aud busied herself with it when
no one was sitting with her ; but
this was not. .often, for she had -a
large following of young -girls, who
were forever rn lining across -the
room to discuss plans or whisper
iuiportaut secrets. Several of these
girls were pretty, aud more than
oue bit of graceful by-play was
aimed across Miss "Musgrove's
shoulder at the insensible Robert,
but he never found :this out. The
"hautedsmealer" was theVlirst' wo
man whom lie had ever looked at
closely, and he did not seem able to
see any lace but hers. .. Motherless,
sisterless; brought up in an almost
conventual atmosphere oi study
he had seen but shadows in a glass
so far; novf the shadows were tak
iug substance, and like Philammou,
the j-outhful monk of the Laura, he
was-filled with zeal- and bewilder
ment. How many things there were
that he Bad hot even suspected 1

all their looks and ways4. And
then he told .himself that this could
not be.. There was but one; she
was unique, incomparable, not
merely a-speeinieu of a type. How
many youthful lovers have thought
and will think -the-saine as the tide
oi' life flows on !
Accident did our shy hero a good
turn at last, as accident sometimes
will. Walking by himself one af
ternoon i ; along the wild shore be
yond Saul's Cliff, be came upon ..the
lady of his thoughts at.a nvoment
of evident difficulty. Her little dog
had slipped and fallen tpthe bottom
of ttther'hign'shlflving cliff, tide
was making in .-fast, and she was
evidently hesitating whether or not
to climb down to his assistance a
question complicated by the doubt
as to whether, once down, she
would be able to climb up again.
Robert ' grasped ; the situation
promptly, and proffered help, which
wras gladly accepted. To his expe
rienced powers the cliff presented
no difficulties, and in five minutes
the rescued terrier was in his mis
tress's arms and the sweet voice
which Robert knew so well was .ut
tering cordial thanks.
The dog had lamed .himself iu his
fall and limped and whined when
set tlown. Another opportunity,.
4'May I not carry ,;hiiix Iiome for
3'ouf" Robert asked. "You' are
quite too good. I fear you will fiud
"Oh, not at all. I like dogs."
So the two walked on over the cliffs,
with sea vistas on one hand, and
mountain glimpses on the othjer,
and before they reached the little
brown cottage in the field, Robert's
shyness had tied under. the spell of
his companion's cordial ease and
tact, and he, found himselt talking j
fluently and witlr- pleasure asr he
had jiever 'talked, to a lady lelbYe
in all his, life. ...
""What a 'beautiful view I lie'
said,;gazing seaward from the door
of the cottage. "
"I think so. It is my favorite of
all the-jnany beautiful views at liar i
Harbor. You must come and see
it often, Mr. Arnold. My little pi
azza is quite at your service any
afternoon if yon want a quiet place
in wiiich to study or smoke, and
can not find one to your taste at
Rodick's. I never use it myself,
except in the morning and evening;
but 1 hope you will occasionally
come there also to see me. Thank
you so much for your kindness to
"What a frank, charming crea
ture!" thought Robert, as he made
his way across the stubble fields to
ward the hotel. "How few girls
are capable ot such unaffected sin
cerity, without any hesitations : or
arriercs pensccs. Dear me ! if they
only knew- what an attraction it
is !" Which reflection might lead
to a doubt as to whether Mr. Ar
nold's experience of the sex at Bar
Harbor had or had not been blessed
to his perceptive faculties.
"Saw you walkin' with Miss
Musgrove, and carryu' her dawg,"
remarked the clerk, with a grin,. as.
he came in. "Didn't know you at
first. Thought maybe 'twas him
Him 1 who 1 Robert was too
proud to ask, but the pronoun
rankled in his mind.
Not for long, however. As time
went on, ami acquaintance pro
gressed with his charmer, and no
"him" appeared to mar the harmo
nious flow of events, the circum
stance passed from his'nieinory. He
went often to the little brown cot
tage in the stubble field, spending
solitary afternoons there with a ci
gar and a miueralogical treatise,
and now and then a morning fc7e--tete
with its fair mistress. Sunset
usually brought a rush of idlers to
the piazza, and their appearance
was his signal for flight. Quite at
his ease now with Miss Musgrove,
he was shy and difficult of access
as ever to' all others, lie invaria
bly reconnoitred the premises from
a point of observation in the fields,
and the flutter of alien petticoats
on the porch would suffice to send
him back again to the hotel.
Miss Musgrove, who treated him
with the frankness of an older sis
ter. rallied him occasionally on this!
"I can't help it," he would say,
"it; is my bringing up."
"Hut you are not shy yitii me.".
"No; but that is different. You
are so -what shall 1 call it ' so
yxrc. You understand you
put me at ease.1'
"So would these other ladies
pretty stMUi it you gave them a
But Robert only shook his head.
So, lapped in a foolish paradise,
unwilling or unable to analyze the
deepening spf II which held him,
Robert Arnold drifted thhvough .In
ly, through August, aud into the
heart of that' golden September
which is only known to the dwell
er's of the North lands, and sudden
ly, like a frost in ripe roses, came
the blight of hope. Miss Musgrove
went suddenly away for a couple of
daysto Portland,, her maid: said.'
People were quitting the island . in
shoals by that time, - the hotels
were nearly 'empty, aud the loneli
ness of those two days'was in part
accounted for by the empty tables
and the closed rooms. But when
the third morning caine -and, Rob
ert, with a sense of reviving- HIV?,
stood ready to help his friend frojj.i
her buckboard, the appalling appa
rition of a gentleman sitting at her
side presented itself a broad
shouldered, handsome, brown na
val "officer, with an evident' air of
ropriecorship about mm, which
as unpleasant as it was uuac-
"Who is that?" Robert demand
ed of? ilie "clerk, who had come out,
as nsualf; at the ; sound of the
wheels. "'-'' "
. "That? why that's him."
"Her brother ?"
"No; she liain't got no brother as
ever I heard. That's him I -tell
you Miss Musgrove's husband,
lie's a lootenant or somethin', and
his ship's been cruising down to

"You said- ,she was Miss Mus
.' And then it flashed upon Robert
that in the island" vernacular mar'
ried women and girls .were alike
"miss," with the difference of a
letter in orthography, but no dif
ference at all in pronunciation. He
saw itaii now. iucn a stupid,
such a ridiculous mistake as it was!
But the consequences w ere no less
hard to bear. .
He went to his. room, and sat
down to think it over. The more
he reviewed the matter, the more
unnecessary his sufferings seemed
to him, and the more distinctly his
own lault. Beginning with a
wrong -impression he had never
given himself: a chance to, correct
it. lie had shrunk jjrith a Jpolish
hyness from people jUvhen half an
hour 61 their compauy would, have
revealed the truth. One question,
the most trifling accident, would
have revealed it; but he had never
asked the question, and always
prevented the accident. The girls
called her Lila; he : had avoided
using auj' name, with the instiuct
of a lover, when he spoke to her,
and had- said "you," while of her
lie never spoke except to himself.
So he had gone on and on, plung
ing deeper and deeper into a vain
affection," nd What a fool ho had
wen ! The only comfort was that
she had hot been in ihe-least to
blame, and that she never know
his mistake, or the pain it caused
A little note reachod the brown
cottage that afternoon.
"Dear Mrs. Musgrove, I am
leaving Bar Harbor so suddenly
that I have no opportunity to make
my farewells to you. A chance has
offered for a miueralogical tour in
the provinces, and when this note
reaches yon 1 shall be on my way
to the Grand Menan., Please ac
cept my most cordial thanks for all
your many kindnesses to me, aud
with my congratulations on Lieu
tenant Musgrove's safe return, be

Mrs. Musgrove, sitting on her
piazza with her sailor beside her,
read this farewell billet smilingly.
"He was really a nice boy," she
said, "shy and stifl", you know, but
of good 'stuff'. Y'ou would have
liked him, Ned."
So, with an nnconscins heart on
shore, and a sad and sore one at
sea, ended the brief and tragic ro
mance of the "Hauled Mealer."

Situated at the contbicm e of the
Neuse and Trent rivers, being
the largest city or town between
Raleigli and the ocean, it is ne
cessarily the center of a huge por
tion of business from the surround
ing counties. A good and profit
able trade is enjoyed by her.- mer
chants from Bealtlbrt, Pitt, Green,
Lenoir. .Jones, Onslow, Carteret,

and by the extension of the Mid

I say 'recaptured because it was
once held by means of the water
transportat ion, and lost by means
of its failure. The names of pro
minent men of Johnston ami Way ne,
were once familiar iu the business
houses and banking institution of
New Berne, and wit h proper energy
may be again.
New Berne occupies a decidedly
advantageous geographical posit ion
as will strike au one who in iv ca

j Water communication with nearly
j every county mentioned above, the
i cheapest and most convenient to
shippers, which supplemented by
railroad and endurable dirt roads
leading to the interior oi the pio
dncing sections, furnishes means
of t ransit , for merchandise from and
produce to the city almost as varied
as the articles to be transmu ted.
The tide water trade of the cit,
is by no means an inconsiderable
one, aud is affected by neither
Hoods nor drouth, but governed by
the will of the craftsmen, subject
only to a slight regard to wind and
tides. ' , . . .. ' r

Hill A i p s Philosophy.
It don't pay to get mad about auj
thing, xnich less politics. Getting mad
c heats a man out of Ins time.' He can
lose a day r t days or 'even' a week,
thinking about it and' fretting over it,
and that interferes with his busiuess aud
deranges his digestion, ancl makes his
family unhappy. He had better go dead
for a while and i on.ic to life auiain. . Get
ting mad is the poorest Way to gct even
wiLh an enemy I ever tried. It don't
pay worth a t ciii and always makes a
man lose his own self-respect. Now a
man may yet mad with himself being a
fool and it will do him no harm. In
fact, it may do hmhI, for it's a sign of
repcnlcucr. 1 knew a young man to go
to .church fair and the girls honey-fugled
six dollars oiilof hitii and lie went home
and undressed and tied one arm to the
bed-post and whipped himself withe the
other, and as he -c ut himself round
the legs lie would say: -You go to au
olher church fair! You let them girls fool
you out of your 'money again! You pay
ten cents for cery tool letter they stick
at you! You ;ie half a 'dollar for a
little dab of ice cream I'll learn you
some sense, I will.' and as he talked to
himself he kept the switch goimr lively,
and would dunce up and down just like
Icj was another fellow. Now that is a
nood idea. When a man makes a fool
of himself and goes a ripping around let
him lie himselt' np and give himself a
nood whij pint; sind then take a fresh
Mart in the moiu'ng. If a man gets into
a tight "hh anotl er man he might ac
cnlent:ill nit hip)ed, and then every
body ould h-:n of it, but if he whips
himself all by himself it will do, more
riood. aud nobody would ever know any
Ihing about it. Atlanta Constitu
