"There, now, mother," he said, as the ruddy blaze shot up the broad chimney, "isn't that nicet Now you shall sit down and get real warm, and I'll make the tea; I'm such a strong fellow I never get tired," Bennie threw on fresh faggots, and got out hia illuminated primer to amuse himself, while his mother did ber sewing; but somehow the pictures failed in their usual interest) His ears were full of the sea's wild sobbing, and his blue eyes bold, kind eyes, so like hit father's wandered furtively to hk mother's face. The lad's eyes 611ed with childhood's quick tears as he watched her, and his face grew solemn with a vague, doubtful wonder. "Mother," he said at last, just the least quiver in his voice, "mother, waf it all right between you and father when he went away! I've wanted to know so long." The mother looked up, startled and amazed; a swift, burning red shot up into her white cheeks, and then she let ber head drop.forwaid on the sewing-stand and burst into passionate sobbing. The child grew pale with fright and pain. She drew him to her bosom in silence, and still sobbiiig.

His childish question had cut her heart like a knife. "Was it all right with her and father when he went away?" Ah, no! it was all wrong; and now, God pity her! it was too late ever to make it right the cruel wrong must live through all time, and eternity perhaps! How vividly, sitting there in the ghastly glimmer of the firelight, did she remember that last parting, three weary years agol Bennie was but a wee lad then, and his father, who had followed the sea all bis life, was starting on a long voyage. He wanted a paper of some importance, a promissory note, or something of the kind, and came to his wife for it Berenice, his pretty girl wife, had taken care of all his papers and all his money siuce the first day of their happy marriage, he being a great, careless, loving, fiery-hearted fellow, as sailors usually are. But Berenice was quite busy that morning getting his outfit in readiness; and the March winds blustered down the cottage chimney, and puffed the smoke and ashes about, and put her out of humor, and, perhaps, for all her sweet child ways and rare beauty, this petted wife of Ben Chudleigh was a bit impatient and quick-tempered by nature, or because of too much petting and dulgence, as is oftener the At any rate, after a hasty search for the note, she declared that it could not be found, and that it had not been intrusted to her keeping. Ben opened bis handsome blue eyes in amazement "Why, Berenice," he said, not a bit cross, only decidedly, "you know I gave it to you.

I always give you things I wish taken care of." "A foolish habit, too," retorted nice, spitefully. "Why not take care of them youmlf! And you may hereaf-, ter, I won't have my desk crowded with any such rubbish," and making good her i words, she towed the papers she had been erlookins the floor. "Why, Berry," he began, and then, fading bit voice unsteady, be stopped and turned away. aiia wife saw in an instant what she faddone, but, with the perversity of a g.Ud, instead of trying to make reparation, as her woman's heart yearned to tw. ahe matters worse.

Then wild, vague hope thrilled through her, and she started to her feet with a cry that rung above the din of the storm. Yes, there he stood, bronzed and worn, and changed, but with the same honest, kindly eyes, Ben Chudleigh, her own husband. He held out his arms, but she went down prostrate at his feet "0 Ben! my husband! my darling! forgive me! I know that God has, because he has given you bark to me." And Ben, sobbing like a woman, gath ered her up in hia strong arms, kissing her wildly, as she clung to him like a child.
