Short as the distance was to the seashore, I thoughtI. should never roach it, so terrible was the fury ot the blast I More than once I had actually to lie down ou the ground, and let it trample over me I And with the blast came hail and heavy rain, blinding me, smiting my cheek like whipcord, and drawing blood, eo 'that I could scarcely see a yard before my face. At last 1 gained the cliff, and here I had much ado to prevent myself from being lifted up bodily and blown away. But 1 threw myself on my face and looked seaward. Nothing was visible, only driving mists and vapors; but right bolow there was a blind- Ing whiteness of the line of breakers, and thence there rose up to me, together with the Wild wisps of solid wind-swopt water, the deafening thunder-roar ct the tumultuously surging sea. Gaining courage, presently, as the light in the east grew clearer, 1 crawled down the path leading to the shore. As 1 went, I was ometlmes flattened like o, rag against the ocks, by the sheer force of the wind; but 1 ersevered, and at lust, with God'a help, •cached the bottom. It was high tide; the roarinc billows were hundering up close to the cliff, and the shal- ow creek surrounding the boat-house was as white as milk with the churning of the waters. I then perceived to my consternation, hat the gale had struck the boatrhouse with such force as to sweep the svooclcn roof away and dash it into fragments against the cliffs. I crept on to the door, which was on the lee and sheltered side, drew forth from my pocket the key of the padlock, opened it, and went in. The great boat lay there unharmed, but was half full of water, fresh from the dark rain clouds, salt from the angry sea. One «f the oars had been lifted out and snapped like a rotten twig, but that was all. Suddenly, as I stood here sheltering from the gale, I heard a sound from seaward, like the sound of a gun. 1 started, listening. In a .minute the sound was repeated. Yes; it was-a gun at sea, and the sound conlcl have only one signification—a vessel in distress I 'Quitting the boat-house, I stood on the •shore, and strained my eyes against the drifting vapors and the blinding wind; but I could distinguish nothing—indeed, no great was the rainy darkness, that niy vision could •not penetrate beyond twenty or thirty yards from the storm-swept shore. But if I needed any fresh assurance that a ship of some sort was struggling with the elements not far •away, it came to me in another faint report •of a gun, and finally, in the red light of a xocket, which shot up through the black vapors like a shooting-star, and disappeared! push away for the shore. Never shall 1 forget that sight! Just in the lee of the crippled vessel, under the cloud of White smoke which rose for a moment high above her remaining mast, there was a heaving patch where the boat could flont in safety; but beyond it, ami nearer to us the waves rose again In awful crested billows whirling and swirling toward the Shore. Seen from our point of vantage, the boat seemed a mere cockle-shell; but we saw.the,, tiny specks crowding into it, while the broken water streamed like milk over the vessel s decks and down her shoreward Sides. "God help them!" 1 cried aloud, and more than one voice echoed my prayer. The boat pushed off. The under-swell caught her and rushed her along at lightning speed, and in a few moments she reached the broken water. There the wind seemed to smite her sidelong, and she was buried instantaneously in the trough of the sea. But she reappeared, half, smothered in surf and flying foam. Then we saw, rapidly approaching her, a mountainous and awful wavol The little boat, as if it were a living thing, seemed to see it too, and to struggle to escape t Sick with horror, i covered my eyes; L could not look. Then I heard a deep groan from the men around me, and looked again. The boat had gone, never to reappear. The mighty wave had broken and was roar- lug shoreward, and amid its foam I saw, or seemed to see, shapes that struggled, sunk, "Man the life-boat 1" I cried. "Quick, lads 1 Follow me!" My uncle gripped me by the arm. "Too late, lad!* There's ne'er a sawl aboard!" "Look yonder!" I answered, pointing seaward. "There are living men on the deck still, and in the rigging. Gomel" The lads, who were English born and had their hearts in the right places, responded with a oheer, and down the path we. rushed till vie reached the shore. Entering: the boat- ing her seaward sides, broke witli a thunderous roar and a cloud ot spray, and then came surging down the slippery decks in a thin sheet of foam, boiling round the naked icet of the solitary maiden. We huhff off for a minute, to let one great sea go by; then we swept alcmsidc. What followed was more like a dream than waV- lug reality. But with an eager cry 1 leaped upon the deck, and staggered up toward Madeline Graham. Twice 1 slipped to my knees, and was driven bade and bruised against the bulwarks; but the third time I succeeded, and, reaching her side, clung to the mast, and gazed into her face. "Madeline!" Icried. Her eyes met mine, but she gave no sign of recognition. It was clear that what I remembered so vividly she had utterly forgotten* Drawing my clasp-knife, I cut her free, and put my' arms around her to bear hel back to the boat. The decks rocked and split beneath us; she clung to me, as it in terror. Then 1 watched my chance, and, raising her bodily in my arms, carried her to the vessel's side, and handed her to the men. I was about to follow her, when 1 was attracted by a Wild scream, and, turning, I perceived tlie-iigure of another woman crawling on the deck, close to the compauionway. She was dark-complexioned, like a mulatto, and almost naked.Withont a moment's hesitation, I ran to her, and half lifted, halt dragged her to the vessel's side. I now perceived that we had saved, in addition to the two women, two white seamen and a black man, who afterward turned out to be the ship's cook. I clung to the bulwarks, and looked round, searching for any other signs of life. "Come, lad, come!" cried my uncle. "Quick I the ship's breaking up!" 1 looked at the strange sailors, who sat shivering In the bottom of the life-boat. "Are there no more souls aboard?" I cried. "Not one," they answered.

THE SUIWIVOKS OF THE WHECK. Quitting the storm-swept shore, I climbed altway up the crags, and endeavored, with training eyes, to penetrate the darkness eawarcl; but although it was broad day, the louds of wind-blown vapor still covered the inubled sea. Greatly agitated, I made, my way up the cliff, and reached the summit, where 1 found hat an excited group, composed ot fishermen and miners, had already gathered. Among them was my uncle, who addressed me eagerly the moment 1 appeared. "Did you say the lights, lad? Sure as death there be a ship on the rocks out thnr!" 'On the South Stack," said an-old nahor- man, naming an ugly reet which Jay right across the mouth of the bay, three quarters of a mile from share. •Are you sure "she 1 * itherft?" Lasted, ieng-' orlv* "Sure enough." was the reply. "When the last light went -oop, I saw 'tin—leastways, sumraat black amang the mist and Jloa'm." There was nothing for it'but'to watch; foi to go to the rescue in the teeth of such a storm was out of the -question, even if we had been able to launch the life-boat through the billows madly breaking on .the shore. The wind still blew with extraordinary f my, 'though signs were not wanting 'that its strength was partially broken; and-still,-with thunderous roar, the waves came rolling in, sending up a cloud of white foam that reach•ed to the very summit o£ the<eUft' where we .were crouching; and still, toiling as it were ,on the waves and belching hither and thither like thick smoke from a furnace, the mist ,-came driving. shoreward, .blotting -the .sea •from sight. . . . From time to time "the gun-soundod v again; 'then it ceased altogether; and no more roek- -ets rose, to indicate the whereabouts of the hidden vessel. Was all .over? Had the cruel seas devoured her, with .the helpless souls on board? Sick with suspense, we waited and •-watched; almost certain .that the last appeal Shad beeii made, and itlrnt all was over. iBnddenly, the storm-smoke blew upward ihere and there, leaving visible wild patches •of tossing water. Simultaneously, the wind lessened, coming not in solid phalanx, but in .gusts, - fltful though temble—very -eannoii- .blasta of air. A'Wild cry rose, and all toainds were sud- idenly pointed seaward. Then, straining my eyes through tho blind- Hug rain, 1 saw something like a white wall .of vapor rising out of swi in ,the direction of Ahe South Stack, and right in its center the Mack outline 1 of a large vessel, wedged flnn- Jy'Oil the jagged rocks. Fora moment she was visible, then the vapors blotted her once more from sight A minuto afterward, she was again visible, tills time more distinctly, so that i could olcaVly discern a black funnel ami .tiro masts, a mainmast intact, a fore- inas> broken off just above the decks. She wae» large screw-steamer, with her back broken right across, and only'saved from sinking by the very rocks which had destroyed her. How she had got into that fatal position, it was difficult to-tell. Possibly her propeller liad snapped, as is not uncommon with such vessels, or tho water had swamped her engines and put them out; in either of which cases, setting how little sail she would be able to carry at the best, it hail been a vain task to titti'inpt to boat oil a lee-shora in the fn«e oi' Bueh a gale. She was«o far nway, and the mists were still i>o troublesome, thnt it WHS diliicult to tell if there were any ficmls still lolt on board. More than once I fancied that I discerned shapes like Inuiiau foims clinging .to or lusli- ed to the rigging of the mainmast, but it, was Impossible to distinguish them with any certainty. However, my mind was now mndo up. '$119 life-boat must be launehect and manned withoijt delay. I umied to tUo men and said as much, but they ahrank back in uneonceal-. ed twuov at tUe mene proposition. And, indeed, it seemed a hopeless attalrl Although, the wind had certainly fa,Jleu a jlttle, }ts fajl- log seemed to aijgment, rather t|wp to lessen t)» ^ury pf the sea, The waters between us. and the vessel were terrible even to Jwk UP< on; and it seemed Impossible that even i> life-beat couW live among tlfeni. 3Sve!i if £l!0 Jived, how f ould t|ie etrengfti of men propel her rlgUt in tf>e teeth #$10 tempest? house, we soon had the boat baled and ready for launching, when I first realized, to my dismay, that we were short-handed, several of my best men being away. But two strong lads from the mine volunteered, and my uncle made a third; and so we formed a crew. To every man I gave a cork life-belt, and tied one on myself. Then, springing to my place in the stern, 1 urged on my men, as with shouts .and yells, scarcely heard amid tho roar of water, they ran the boat into the creek. Each man knew his place. They urged the boat, bow forward, into tho surge, and waded with it, those the furthest from shore wading breast-deep in the waves. Thrice we were beaten back, and I thought the boat would have been crushed to pieces on the beach, but at last she floated—the men leaped in and took their places—the oars'smote ;ho boiling surge, and out we crept to sea. Once fairly alloat, we realized for the iirst tenipt to reach the shore. There was not a moment to be lost. Iho vessel was evidently doomed, nnd every shock of the sea threatened to complete tho work of destruction. The black funnel, almost wrenched out o£ the bursting decks, was leaning ovw terribly, and threatening every moment to crash clown bodily and destroy the life-boat. I leapt in, and saramblcd to my place in the stern. On the seat close by me was Madeline, her eyes half closed, her neck resting on the gunwale; and at her feet was the colored woman, moaning and crying. It was but the work ol! a moment to strip off my pilot-coat and wrap it round Madeline's half-naked limbs; but while 1 did so the men cried impatiently and pushed off. Give way, lads!" I cried. "Now I Pull for your lives!" Away we went through the surging sea. Not a minute too' soon did wo leave the ves- TpllO Dontists have recently been discuss- jing the effect of civilization on teeth, i and have come to tho conclusion that j the almost universal adoption among 'all classes ol what our ancestors regarded as luxuries has injuriously _ affected the natural means of mastication. 'In country and sea coast districts very old people who have retained their primitive manners in eating and drinking nearly everything (including their whisky) could have teeth as sound as a rock, though worn almost to stumps by honest hard work, while young per- eons who have fallen victims to the attractions of civilization and regularly take tea, coffee,, cocoa and stimulants of other kinds as hot as they can get them exhibit decayed stumps, full of holes and crumbling away. In the words of one learned gentleman, tho/'simmering kettle" is the dentist's greatest friend. The conclusion arrived at is that if you wish to preserve your teeth strong and. healthy you should much cold food as you can—except ices. Constant sipping of hot beverages is very injurious. — London Teleqraph.. "Well, Bridget, what makes yon so down-hearted this rnorningP" asked a housekeeper of her domestic.

JtJutthe lads put out their strength, and sheer muscle and bold heroic will conquering at last, the lifeboat left the shore. And now I alone, standing in the stern could see what mountainous seas wo had to pass before we could reach the doomed vessel, which was now scarcely discernible through the sheet -of low-flying spray. As some great wave came near, curling high above us, I .cheered on the men, and we met it with a shock like thunder and a rattle of every plank of which tho boat was • made. More than once the seas made a clean breach over us, but.tho' air-tight compartments and cushions of cork kept us from actually foundering. On we went, with the light of the kindling east-turning from red to reddish- gold behind us, and the mists struck by the new radiance,'thinning to seaward; and so, after a fierce tussle with wind and water, we came in full sight of the doomed vessel. Stuck fast on the cruel reef, her back broken, she was struggling like a crippled. which broko like tinder beneath the blow. With wind and sea to urge us on, we flew shoreward, and the strength of the oarsmen •was needed rather to break than to increase onr lightning speed. Again and again the great seas rose behind and threatened to m- iriin 1 no- wiiilH urmnimr the steering-oar I gulf us; while . ._ watched them, and guided At last we approached the shore, and saw a great crowd waiting upon the shingle and swarming' upon the cliff. Tossing like a cork upon the waters, we waited our chance, and then, after one huge wavo had spent itself, and there was a momentary surcease of the water's power, I headed the boat's bow for the creek, and wo rowed in. As the keel struck the sands, a dozen men rushed in walstdeep to seize the boat; our men joined them, and then,with a long pull. To be continued Beautiful of l?lovv»ra. London Telegrap A few years ago a portion of tho pavement in Qroswell road, London, was lifted out of its place in somo mysterious way. Before the workmen were sent to replace it numerous toadstools rnado their appearance in the crack between tho misplaced stone and its fellows. InvesUi'iition proved that the stove, which was two feet one way by four the other, and weiRhed 212 pounds, had actually been lifted out of plaje by the resistless growing force of th'jse fioft, spongy fungi, An Ample iruuil-ol rieasuro and Health May be derived from an ocean voyage am foreign travel. But before one gets one's "sea legs" on, as tho sailor says, the abom- able qualms, begotten 0 C seasickness, have usually to be gotten over. Delicate people suffer, of course, move than the robust from this ailment, but few sea travelers inclined toward the shore, and quivering through and through with every blow of the strong metallic waves. A pillar of smoky foam, ever vanishing, -ever renewed, hung over her in the air, and from time to time the waters foamed over her weather side, and streamed over the splitting decks. At first Leonid-discern no sign of life, but as we drew nearer and nearer, I flaw one or two figures -clinging in the rigging, from which many of their-comrades had doubtless been washed away. - They saw us coining, for .one ;of them waved something white. Pull for your lives!" I cried. "There are men aboard!" The lads answered me with a cheer, and the boat shot forward to the steady sweep of their united oars till wo were within a hundred yards of the steamer. Then I saw a sight which filled all my sonl with fear and pity. Lashed to, -or clinging to the mainmast, was the solitary figure of a woman. I knew her sex by the wild hair falling over her shoulders, and tho curious feminine grace of her form, visible through : a dark cloak that had been thrown hastily upon her shoulders; but her head was droop ing and her face hidden, and she did no seem conscious of what was taking place, I told the men that a woman was there and though they needed no new incentive to give them strength, their faces grew more animated, and I knew they would have facer lire us well us water in such a cause. In few minutes more we were close at hand, rising and falling on the white surge in tho vessel's lee. . Then the woman raised her head, and looked in our direction. The men saw her, and gave another cheer; but I—1 could have swooned away In consternation.' My head went round. 1 looked again and again, Either 1 was mad, or dreaming, or the fac« I gazed upon was that of tho lovo of my boyhood—Madeline Graham! ' : . _ ——i— • • - ' '• v XIII. ,'.- . Yes; I know her in a moment. The lurid light of the tempestuous morning shone full upon her face, and the clinging dress and cloak, which more expressed than hid her lovely form, Her eyes were wildly fixed, hei; face pale as death; but in her features there was a splendid self-possession far removed from coiumqn fe*r. Though bo many years had passed since we had last met, she was still tho tame; only taller,and more womanly, and even mo'e strangely beautiful than when she had Orel shed love nnd rapture on my boyish heart, She was lustened to the ma-st by a J'opo, Jlei jeet weio baie, and I saw, to my honor, that nil fclio woio save the gieat lur cloak was tijilBliMiess of white cotton, jeachlng to her tot.

It grows in Sumatra and de- lives its name from Sir Stamford Raf- les, governor of the island, and his rienu Dr. Arnold, who discovered the wonderful plant. The Baffiesia Arnoldi is said to be the .urgest and most magnificent flower _iu ;he° world. It 'is composed of five roundish petals, each a foot across ai'id of a brick-red color, covered with numerous irregular yellowish-white swellings; the petals surround a cup nearly a foot wide, the margin of which bears the stamens. This cup is filled with a fleshy disc, the upper surface . of which is everywhere covered with projections, like miniature cows' horns. The cup. when free from its contents, would hold about twelve pints of wafer. The flower weighs fifteen poNiidfl; it is very thick, tho petals beiug from three-quarters to an inch in thickness. With its beauty one is led to expect sweetness but, alas! its odor is that of tainted beof, and Dr. Arnold supposed that even the Hies were deceived by the smell and were depositing their eggs in the thick disc, taking it for a pi.ece of carrion., The ]5iona3a, or Venus lly-fcrap. is a native of the sandy bogs' of the Carolinas.
