__n_ 1 A MAD BETROTHAL; l OR, NADINE'S VOW. BY LAURA JEAN LIBBEY, Author of Parted by Fate," Florabel'a Lover, "lone," etc. CHAPTER XXXIII. THE HASTY TRIP TO EUROPE. IT was a beautiful day on which the Corinthia set sail; the sky was blue overhead, and the waves were dimpling and smiling under the beams of the were dimpling and smiling under the beams of the golden sunshine. Mr. Renwick, the artist, was in a fever of excitement to hurry his friend Wetherell aboard, and, once there, to watch on deck for the arrival of his inamorata. I will leave you to your reflections for a little i while," said Wetherell. I am going to the other end of the deck to smoke a cigar. If I see them coming, I will call you." When the steamer was under full headway the young artist came anxiously to Wetherell, saying Early as we were here, they must have reached the steamer in advance of us. I did not see them come on." Perhaps they were left. Such mishaps have occurred often enough," said Wetherell; but he rather repented the words when he saw the ex- pression of his friend's face, and he thought of the words, "Hope deferred maketh the heart sick." "Cheer up my dear fellow. That was merely a surmise of mine," he added. Ten to one you will come face to face with the young lady in the cabin or on deck before we are three hours out oi port." Renwick's gloomy face brightened. I can but hope so," he replied but even as he spoke an exclamation of exultation broke from his lips" Ah he said, in a low, ex- cited undertone, I caught a glimpse, of tb- dragon of a duenna. MJ- lllU!r .e *,u,^tt.grouna. bhe caught just one glimpse of me, and I could have sworn that she turned white with amazement and indignation. But I shall not care for her espionage if I am living in the same atmosphere with that charm- ing girl. I hope I do not bore you with this love affair of mine," he added, quickly. "A thou- sand pardons if I do, old fellow." "By no means," returned Wetherell. "On the contrary, I cannot help feeling interested, as I told you before." "By the by," said Renwick, thoughtfully what became of that young girl that you used to be always talking about in the old college days? Being out of New York so long I have lost the run of affairs. You know it is nearly three years since we parted, Wetherell." Will you feel offended if I say I would rather not speak of that matter? I will give confidence for confidence a little later on, but not now." Forgive me if I have opened an old wound. Try and forget." Try — and — forget," murmured Wetherell, as he walked slowly to the other end of the deck, and paced' up and down. "Would to Heaven I could-but I cannot waking or sleeping the face of Nadine is ever before Hie." It was some diversion from his own sorrow to watch the progress of his friend's love affair, and he certainly hoped most sincerely that it would not have as disastrous a finale as his own. The sunlit day passed, and the gloaming, which falls early on the water, soon deepened into night. The stars came out one by one and fixed themselves in the heavens, mirroring them- selves in the dancing waves below. The words occurred to Wetherell as he paced the deck: Ten thousand stars were in the sky, Ten thousand in the sea." He was startled from his reverie by the rapid approach of his friend Renwick. There was a broad smile on his friend's face, and the light in his eyes betokened the best of humour. "Fortune has favoured me," he cried. "I have seen that charming girl and spoken to her. The ice is broken at last. Would it in- terest you to know how it came about ? "Certainly," said Wetherell, good-naturedly. "I was walking through the ladies' cabin, thinking of her, when suddenly she appealed before me. It was a case of 'Think of angels and you will hear the rustle of their wings.' And, at that propitious moment, the vessel gave a lurch lur-vaid, precipitating the young lady directly into my arms. I beg your pardon,' she said, simply; this is the first time I have been on the ocean. .1 have not gotten used yet to the swaying motion of the vessel.' "Without waiting for a reply she went ou: I am in search of the stewardess. My aunt is very ill. I fear she will be obliged to keep in her state-room the entire trip.' "If she bad glanced up she would have seen the delight in my face which I auxi- ously strove to conceal not delight that the lynx-eyed duenna was sea-sick, of course, but enraptured over the prospect that she would be kept, in her room during the trip. Here was my op; 01 tiuiitj'. Surely fate had had a hand in thid. I offered my services at once to fetch the stewardess to her, if she would but take a seat just where she was, and she gladly consented, thanking me for my trouble, as she called it, in the prettiest and most unaffected way imagina- ble. She little dreamed what a pleasure it was to me to aid her in any possible way. Why, Wetherell, a man could die for such a divine girl as that, I assure you. There is one thing that makes me a trifle disheartened," he went on, "and that is, she does not seem to be in the slightest degree attracted toward me. I met her on the deck since that, and her eyes and manner gave me no encouragement to stop and talk, and with a bow I passed on. It is clear to me that love at first sight is not bound to be reciprocal; she will not be easily won." Faint heart ne'er won fair lady," quoted Wetherell.You will have plenty of time to see the young lady during the next eight or nine days we are out." But this assurance did not prove correct. A week passed, and much to Renwick's discomfiture, the young, lady did not put in an appear- ance. He bribed the stewardess and one of the waiters to find out if she, too, were ill, and if so, to convey his most profound sympathy. But no, she was perfectly well, he learned, and she was keeping her aunt company, having their meals served together in her aunt's state-room. It is evident I must commence the siege by making friends with the aunt," he told Wetherell, ruefully, one day. "Because she cannot get out she keeps the girl a close prisoner too." As often as courtesy and decorum would per- mit, he sent most solicitous messages to the aunt, until at last Hester Burns became somewhat curious. "It is the young artist, you say, Nadine?" she inquired, curiously. "Now what interest can he have in my welfare, to send three times a day to inquire if I am better or not ? I tell you, Nadine, the man is in love, and with you. Do not look so shocked, my dear. Is there any- thing so surprising in that ? You are young, fair, clever—what more natural than that you should have captured this young man's susceptible heart ? Do not talk about it, aunt; I-I cannot bear it. It seems dreadful to mention any other man except Gilbert in the same breath with love and myself." "As for Gilbert, the sooner you cease think- ing of him in connection with love, the better," retorted her aunt slowly. "He is like all men false and fickle." Nadine looked at her curiously. You used to like Gilbert, aunt," she said. How strange it seems that in the last ten days your opinion of him has changed so mate- rially. Aunt Hester turned away from those keen, young, scrutinising eyes, and flushed a dull red. She meant to keep her own counsel. Nadine's pride should never be humbled, and her heart bled afresh by the knowledge that she had written to Gilbert Wetherell, admitting that her niece still loved him, and urging him to come on to Glen Farm, where Nadine was, and that he had ignored her letter completely. What she does know won't hurt her," she had told herself. It was great grief to her to see Nadine droop and fade day by day before her very eyes. "The girl is breaking her heart over him, and I can do nothing," she sighed, bitterly. Then came the thought of taking Nadine abroad. Nothing assuages the grief of disappointed love like time and absence," she thought. The appearance of the handsome young artist at Glen Farm, and his open glance of admira- tion as he looked at Nadine, annoyed her. She was glad Nadine did not perceive his admira- tion. His face was the first one she had encountered on stepping on board the steamer. Now, is this purely accidental," thought Hester, angrily, "or has that man followed Nadine, having heard that we were to sail on this steamer ? When she heard of Nadine's encounter with him in the cabin, she had broached the subject of his having fallen in love with her to Nadine in a roundabout manner, ending by warning her to have as little to say to him as possible. But this injunction was scarcely needed. Nadine had no desire to encourage ever so slightly the attentions of this handsome, young stranger. It was quite as much for this reason as any other that she kept her aunt company, refraining from appearing on deck. At length Renwick could endure this state of affairs no longer. "I must see her!" he declared to himself, "I shall see her before another day_r— P,ilt- I- —-— no to accomplish it when she shut herself up in the state-room with a grim, old aunt, never appearing on either deck, or in the cabin ? It was certainly a difficult problem to solve. He had concluded to write her a polite little note, begging her to come on deck a few moments that afternoon, and criticise a sketch he was making from memory, of the old farm- house and the shady porch, on which a young girl sat, that young girl being herself. Of course, natural curiosity would be sure to bring her from her state-room to look at the picture.
CHAPTER XXXIV. A TERRIBLE CALAMITY IN MID-OCEAN. MR. RENWICK sent his note to state-room No. 212, and paced the deck eagerly, awaiting her reply but, ah me The best laid plan of mice and man Aft gang aglee." Even while he waited he became aware that there was a sudden change in the weather immi- nent. Dark clouds began to gather in the cold- grey leaden sky the wind freshened, and the dark waves began to lash each other into foam- crested mountains, swaying the steamer to and fro like an egg shell on the breast of an angry sea. In the midst of it lie received a verbal mes- sage from Nadine, saying she would be very pleased to see the picture on the morrow; she could not leave her aunt just at present, as she was very ill, indeed, from the effects of the coming storm. "I shall see her to-morrow," he says, joyously and, like all impatient lovers, he counts the hours that will intervene between that time and this, and he concludes that the best way to do is to engross himself in his picture while it is yet light. But he soon finds, with the pitching and rocking of the steamer, this is impossible. He knows he could find Wetherell on deck, but he does not feel in the mood for conver- sation. "People in love like their own thoughts better than any companion's," he thought, smiling. It is going to be a terrible night, Renwick," said Gilbert Wetherell, as he caught sight of his Irietid as he passed him on his way to his state- room. So I imagine," replied Renwick, and for that reason my berth will be preferable to sitting out on dfifik with you. You had better follow my example and turn in." I will, a little later on," replied Gilbert Wetherell. They parted with a pleasant nod. Neither of them ever dreamed under what distressing circumstances they should meet again. How long Wetherell stood there he never knew. Long since the darkness of Hades had settled over the plunging, swaying steamer and the world of inky, turbulent waters. The storm commenced in earnest. The rain fell in torrents the lightning flashed in red, blinding glares of light, making the horrible scene vividly lurid for one brief instant, then leaving the world to darkness and the wild fury of the raging st..mi. The fierce gales of wind almost took Wetherell from his feet. Sometimes he quite wishes that his life would end here and now. Who would care ? Who would miss him, save his sister and his oJd mother? Someone touches him on the arm. Glancing around with a start, he finds himself face to face with one of the sailors. "It's an awful night, sir," the man says, adding, in his bluff. hearty way: "And it's anything but safe to be standing here on deck. We've just lost a man, sir-as good a lad as I ever I was afloat with. Take my advice and go below." Wetherell smiled gloomily. "The warring of the elements just suits my frame of mind to-night. You are k;:id to advise me. I shall remain here for a short time, though." „ The old sailor, passed on, muttering some- thing about what fools some people were to expose themselves to the merciless storm when they warn't obleeged to." An hour later the same old sailor saw the tall, straight figure still standing on deck, breasting the fury of the bitter storm. "He'll get enough of it within the next half hour if the wind continues to rise as it is risin now," he thought. And the wind did rise. It almost seemed to tilibert Wetherell that the flood gates of Heaven were opened wide to deluge the earth on this a awful night. "Twelve o'clock and all's well," sang out the watch below. But simultaneously with those words, there were horrible cries, and a deaftening sound of crashing timber. Intuitively, Wetherell understood what had occurred — the steamer had been struck by lightning—but he did not known then how much damage had been done-that the vessel had been nearly rent in twain. In an instant a scene of the wildest confusion prevailed. There were wild, piteous cries from dazed women and children who had been pre- cipitated from their berths. And over the din was I heard the cry "To the life-boats I There is a hole in the vessel's side She is sinking Yes, the doomed steamer was settling. Already the mad waters covered the hold, and with each instant of time were rising higher and higher. No pen can picture the awful confusion of the scene, as that terrible cry ran from lip to lip- The steamer is sinking The fright, the con- fusion, the dismay, the hoarse cry of the sailors the terrible screams of loved ones who had been separated by the mad, paraiys^u LhlOUg strug- gling toward. the life-boats. They were hurled down and trampled upon by the stronger. What did one person care for another in that great struggle for life or for death Wetherell's first thought was for his friend, Renwick; but it was impossible to force his way through the panic-stricken, mad throng who were pushing forward. In this awful calamity the few men with cool heads and steady nerves were attempting to care 1 for the helpless- women and children first; fore- most among them was Wetherell. The last boat had been lowered, and the captain and Wetherell had stepped into it. Row for your lives, lads commanded the captain, in a voice like a bugle blast, "or the steamer will draw us down with her Even while he spoke, there was a cry of horror from one of the men. "Look, Captain!" he cried. 'All are not saved. My God there is a woman standing on the deck; the storm drowns her frantic cries "Push ahead!" commanded the captain. To pull one stroke nearer that doomed vessel means death for us all. Twenty lives cannot, must not, be sacrificed for one Hold cried Wetherell, leaping to his feet. I cannot desert a woman in such a peril as that ? Push on without me," and before those about him could lift a hand to save him he had plunged boldly into the boiling sea and struck out for the sinking ship. The man is mad cried the captain. Life is too precious to the crew to give the matter a second thought. They pulled hard, and the mighty strokes drove the life-boat out of the wake of the plunging, swaying, deserted steamer. As our noble hero struck the hissing waves, who shall picture the thoughts that surged like a flash through his breast? "Nadine, my darling," he murmured, "God bless you wherever you are to-night God bless you—and good-bye There was little need in striking out toward the steamer. The suction of thexwater as the vessel settled drew him toward her and in the meteoric flashes of lightning he could see the slender form cling to the railing of the deck. It will be death with both of us," he thought, in horrible despair. "Jump!" he cried out, "and I wijl save you I" He realised that it was their only chance now, for struggle against it as valiantly "Quld, he- voiug ciiitWIl uuder. "Jump!" he cried again. "I can come no nearer!" And, thank Heaven, she heard that loud command over the wild warring or the furious elements, and obeyed. She sank; the wild waves closed over her but in the next flash of light Wetherell saw her near at hand and grasped her. "Cling close to me!" he cried, hoarsely. "It is our only chance of life. We are facing death together." He heard a sharp cry, and the arms relaxed their hold, and she would have fallen back into the waves that were yearning to receive them both, if he had not anticipated the emergency aiid caught her closely with his left arm, while he struck out valiantly with his right. He was a bold and fearless swimmer, but, in the face of peril like this, no wonder his heart sank but, even in this moment of con- centrated, awful despair he did not regret risking his life to save that of the poor creature they had all abandoned and left alone-to die. No humait imagination can paint truthfully, in its horrible reality, that gallant death struggle in its awful terror. There was a fearful commotion in the waves as the steamer went down; but, thank Heaven rescuer and rescued were out of her wake. How he kept up, with that heavy burden to support, Heaven knew. An hundred times he was on the point of giving up the struggle, but hope urged him on. When daylight broke, with the first faint streak of early dawn, he observed a dark object floating on the water near him. "A boat!" he gasped. "JGod be praised!" It was floating bottom side up in the water. With- nuieh difficulty he righed it, succeeded in lifting his heavy burden over the edge of it, dropping her into the bottom of it, and clam- bering in himself. Then, and not until then, did he fully realise the almost superhuman strength he had put forth, for, without a cry or moan, strong man though lie was, he sank into a dead faint to the bottom of the boat beside the woman he had rescued.

HOLTON-ROAD ENGLISH BAPTIST SUNDAY SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. -J THE EDUCATION ACT AND SUNDAY SCHOOL WORK. Holton-road English Baptist Sunday School, Barry Dock, is one of the largest institutions of the kind in the town, there being on the registers over 500 scholars, with an average attendance of nearly 400 scholars. On Sunday last the anni- versary services were held, when special sermons were delivered to large congregations, both morning and evening, by the Rev J. M. Jones, Newbridge, Monmouthshire. Special anthems were sung at each service by the church choir, nnder the con- ductorship of Mr. Samuel Organ, the accompanists being Mrs Barrett and Mr G. Rogers. At thj after- noon services a programme of solos, recitations, &c., was rendered by Mrs Crisp, Misses E. John, Gwen Rose, Maud Barnett, Winnie Coates, Beaty Lang- ford, Alice Berry, Emily Camble, and Annie Davies, Masters Alfred Phelps and Fred James, The chair, in the unavoidable absence of Councillor J. A. Manaton, J.P., was occupied by Mr S. R. Jones, the Superintendent of the Sunday School. In an appropriate address to the teachers and scholars, the Rev J. M. Jones made a stirring appeal for more workers in Sunday school work. The Church of England, he said, through the arm of the State, were endeavouring to secure a hold upon the children, and had secured the passing of a new Education Bill, but how far it would prove Successful in its operations remained to be seen. The parents it was, be said. who should determine what religious instruction should be given to their children. This being so they should take care that the children were not coerced into a form of religious instruction which was contrary to the conscientious dictates of their parents, A. Miscellaneous entertainment was held in the schoolroom on Wednesday evening, when the children went through, in a crtditable manner, an excellent programme of action songs, &c., for which they had been trained by Miss James, Miss Evans, and Miss Williams. The chair was occupied by Alderman J. C. Meggitt, J.P., who t kes a deep practical interest in Sunday school work.
BARRY NURSING ASSOCIATION. The Executive Committee of the Barry District Nursing Association beld their monthly meeting at the Nurses' Home. Barry Docks, on Tuesday evening last, when there were present—Mr J. Davies (in the chair), Mrs Bray, Mrs Pointon Newman, Rev O. J. Clarke, Dr Budge, Messrs J. Blainey, T. Williams, J. H. Brough, E. J. Llewellin, F. Sharp, and J. A. Hughes (hon. secretary). Mr Hughes reported that several of the churches in the town intended taking up a collection in aid of the funds of the Association, and that the Cardiff Union Bourd of Guardians had decided to increase their annual subscription from P.40 to £ 75. Mr S. Fisher wrote stating that the Barry Coal- trimmers contributed weekly to a Charitable Institutions Fund, and the Nursing Association was one of the institutions that benefitted thereby. Miss Rice (the superintendent) reported that during the past month 102 cases had been attended, to which 1,642 visits had been paid, and there still remained on the books 57 cases.—Miss Rice was given permission to engage temporary assistance if necessary. A discussion took place with reference to engaging a nurse to take charge of a maternity ward which it was intended to open in connection with the Home, and who, in her spare time, could nurse cases at the usual fee.—Dr Budge said that several of the doctors were not in favour of the nurse going out nursing because he said a trained nurse would not call in the services of a doctor, whereas an untrained nurse would.—Mr Hughes failed to see how the nurse would in any way interfere with the medical profession.—Eventually it was decided to hold a special meeting of the Committee to discuss the matter with the doctors. The ordinary meeting of the executive was fixed for the second Friday in the month.
THE VISIT OF AN ARCHBISHOP TO BARRY. CONSECRATION OF A BISHOP.

The Archbishop arrived in Barry as the guest of the Rev H. B. Ventham on Thursday evening last, accompanied by his chaplains, and was delighted with the various places of interest in the neigh- bourhood."
