Some weeks ago I incautiously printed
a low, plaintive wail from a prune
grower in Oregon who wanted a wife.
He had a prune vineyard of 3^ acres,
and was, oh! so lonely that I took pity
on him and printed the wail without
money and without price, so that some

lies from the Cage.
For long we said nothing, marching
alongside or one behind the other, each
with a set countenance, I angry and
proud, and drawing what strength I had
from these two violent and sinful feel j
ings; Alan angry and ashamed—ashamed ,
that he had lo6t money, angry that I
should take it so ill.
The thought of a separation ran al
ways the stronger in my mind, and the
more 1 approved of it the more ashamed
I grew of my approval. It would be a
fine, handsome, generous thing indeed
for Alan to turn round and say to ine,
"Go; I am in the most danger, and my
company only increases yours." But for
mo to turn to the friend who certainly
loved me and say to him, "You are in
great danger, I am in but little; yonr
friendship is a bnrden; go, take your
risks and bear your hardships alone"—
no, that was impossible, and even to
think of it privily to myself made my
cheeks to burn.

child. Wheedling my money from me

"David," says he, "this is no way for
two friends to take a suiall accident. I
have to say that I'm sorry, and so that's
said. And now if you have anything
ye'd better say it."
"Oh," says 1, "1 have nothing."
He seemed disconcerted, at which 1
was meanly pleased.
"No," said he, with rather a trembling
voice, "but when I say I was to blame?"
"Why, of course ye were to blame,"
•aid I coolly, "and ye will bear me out
that I have never reproached yon."
"Never," says he; "bat ye ken very
well that ye've done worse. Are we to

This was to ;;et us up at once into the !
tops of the mountains; to go round by a j
circuit, turning to the heads of Glen
Lyon, Glen Lochay and Glen Dochart,
and come down upon the lowlands by j
Kipjten and the upper waters of the j
Forth. Alan was little pleased with a j
route which led us through the country of j
nis blood foes, the Glenorchy C'ampl>ells.
But the gillie, who was indeed the chief j
man of Cluny's 6couts, had good reasons
to give him on all hands, naming the I
force of troops in every distriet, and al- j
leging finally fas well as 1 could under I

Alan gave way at last, but with only i
half a heart. "It's one of the dowiest I
countries in Scotland," said he. "There's j
naething there that I ken but heath j
| and crows and Campbells. But 1 see i
that ye're a man of some penetration. ,
j and be it as ye please!"
| We set forth accordingly by this itin- ;
erary, and for the best part of three ;
nights traveled on eerie mountains aud
among the well heads of wild rivers,
often buried in mist, almost continually
j blown and rained upon, and not once
cheered by any glimjise of snnshini-
' By day we lay and slept in the drencli-
| ing heather; by night, incessantly clam-
I bered upon breakneck hills and union.;
rude crags. We often wandered; we
were often so involved in fog that we
must lie quiet till it lightened. A lire
! was never to be thought of. Our onlv
J food was drammach and a portion of
cold meat that we had carried from the
Cage; and as for drink, heaven knows
we had no want of water.
During all these horrid wanderings
we had no familiarity, scarcely even
that of speech. The truth is that I was
sickening for my grave, which is my
best excuse. But besides that I was of
an unforgiving disposition from my
birth, slow to take offense, slower tj
forget it, and now incensed both against
my companion and myself. For tha
best part of two days he was unwearied-
ly kind, silent indeed, but always ready
to help, and always hoping (as I could
very well see) that my displeasure would
blow by. For the same length of time
1 staid in myself, nursing jay anger,
roughly refusing his services, and pass-
ing him over with my eyes as if he had
been a bush or a stone.
The second night, or rather the peep
of the third day, found us upon a very-
open bill, so that we could not follow
our usual plan and lie down immediate-
ly to eat and sleep. Before we had \
reached a place of shelter the gray had
come pretty clear, for though it still
rained, the clouds ran higher, and Alan, j
looking in my face, showed some marks !
"Ye had better let me take your pack," j
said he for i>erhaps the ninth time since j
we parted from the scout beside Loch ■
"I do very well, 1 thank you," said I
as cold as ice.
Alan flushed darkly. "I'll not offer it
again," he said; "I'm not a patient man, j
"1 never said you were," said I, which
was exactly the rude, silly sj>eech of a
boy of ten.
Alan made no answer at the time, but |
his conduct uuswered for him. Hence I
forth, it is to bo thought, he quite tor- ;
gave himself for the affair at Cluny's, j
cocked his hat again, walked jauntily, j
whistled airs and looked at me upon one
side with a provoking smile.
The third night we were to pass
through the western end of the country
of Balquidder. It came clear and cold, <
with a touch in the air like frost aud a
northerly wind that blew the clouds j
away ami made the stars bright. The
streams were full of course, and still
made a great noise among the hills, but
I observed that Alan thought no more
upon the Kelpie and was in high good
spirits. As for ine the change of weather
came too late; 1 had lain in the mire bo
long that (as the Bible haj it) my very
clothes "abhorred me." 1 was dead
weary, deadly sick and full of pains and
shiverings; the chill of the wind went
through me, and the sound of it con-
fused my ears. In this poor state 1 had
to bear from iny companion something
in the nature of a persecution. He
spoke a good deal and never without a
taunt. "Whig" was the best name he
had to givS ine. "Here," he would say.
"here's a dub for ye to jump, my Whig-
gie. 1 ken you're a fine jumper!" And
soon, all the time with a gibing voice
All the while I was growing worse
and worse. Once 1 had fallen, my legs
simply doubling under me, and this had
•trnck Alan for the moment, but 1 was
afoot so briskly and set off again with
■ach a natural manner that he soon for-
got the incident. Flushes of heat went
over me and then spasms of shuddering.
The stitch in my side was hardly bear-
able.. At last I began to feel that I could
trail myself no farther, and with that
there came on me all at once the wish
to have it out with Alan, let my anger
blaze and be done with my life in a mora
sadden manner. He hod just called me
"Whig," I stoooed.

The question now arises in my mind,
Ought I to unite two people like these
or be even in any way instrumental per-
haps in the union of two lives that may
be the origin of a race which in future
years will have to be protected by the j
game laws of Oregon?
Far be it from me to criticise or even
opine slightingly of one who has been ;
born plain, and who has added to it iq
after years, for I know a truly good man
who carried the Gospel up the Congo
river and showed the natives, among
a cause la which there is no real earnest-
ness. Somehow at night, as I look up
into the quiet sky and try to count the
stars through the nx>f and endeavor to

I may do ever what is right, no matter

sometimes while I lie thus (.that is, while
I thus lie) in the nighttime, with my hot
temples bathed in the cool moonlight
like the temples of Jerusalem, it comes
over me that jiossibly these people are
conversing with me through their hats!
Oh, can it be that I, who, while other
men are putting their arms lovingly
about th.> taper waist of the beloved
voter, go Hlxuit myself from house to
house comforting the disfranchised wife
and sister and daughter, sometimes for
days and days—I who would protect even
a poor cur from its persecutors (he who
has never had a dog instinct, or been
tainted with the blood of the dog family
in any way, let him cast the first stone!)—
that I, I say, should be thus monkeyed
with by distant strangers who propose tc
elevate society and scandalize the stage
gives me a dull neck pain which it ie
hard to describe.
Perhaps this prune grower is a widow-
er. If so he may be in earnest, for il
has been truly said that the life of h
widower is like that of a baby—the first
six months he does nothing but weep
the second he begins to sit up. look
around and take notice, and it is mighty
hard to get him through the second year.
But let us p;iss on.
