They looked the new moon in the face, "Now make a wish," said she "I will If you will make one, too," He answered pensively. They grazed up at the crescent that Hung in the western sky, And wished and turned away and each Broke off a little sigh. They sat alone upon tie steps, He and the maiden fair She looked around to be assured No one was' lurking there. "What was your wish?" she sweetly asked: "Ah, something good, I know! Confess, and I will tell you mine. Perhaps, before you so." He looked into her upturned eyes, Her little hand sought his: "My wish to-night," he said, "was what My fond wish always is. 1 wished that I, somehow, might find The road that leads to fame— That, dying, I may leave behind A great and honored name."

LANCE. By CHAUNCY C. HOTCHkts (Copyright, 1897, by D. Appleton & Co. lights reserved.} All CHAPTER XXIV.—CONTINUED. On the night of August 14 I went below, fully expecting Hiat but a few hours would elapse ere we wvnt to the bottom. Once in awhile my vitality would assert itself, Mid a quick apprehension, a living sensibil •', would shoot through me like a running flish of driving sparks in burned-out tin de but without enough heat or force to rojt me to action. I slept heavily, as one sleeps in the fumes of burning charcoal, dead' to harm or happiness, and was waked from a dream of feasting by the sound of a report like that made by a bursting sail. Half conscious I crawled to the deck to see what had happened. The dawn was well forward, a strip of bright sky of pearly clearness heralding the sun which was al ready scattering the clouds aloft. Patches of the deepest blue, flecked with fine vapor like clotted cream sailing far above the rap idly dissolving storm wrack, foretold ...

She listened to all I said, tut I doubt if her mind was a moment ,v off her critical position. My curiosity at last got the better of my resolution. 1,5 "Tell me," I said, in a tone to invite confidence, "how did you dare carry those plans, knowing that if caught j*ou would be liable to a death penalty?" She shuddered, but made no reply. "Did you realize what you were do ing?" Still there was no answer. Why will women be dumb when they have a great deal to say, and garrulous when their words are worthless? I got up from the table, crammed my hands into my breeches-pockets, and stalked back and forth. Presently I stopped and faced her. "Haven't I treated you kindly?" "Very." "Then confide in me.

When I had finished dressing I went to the mess tent and found the general and the personal staff seated at breakfast. To my satisfaction, the general ate in silence, making no reference to Mar garet Beach. When breakfast was over he ordered Walter to ride to the commanding officers and direct them to get ready to march in two hours.
