A {,ett{lr. 


SAt\D BANKS. AUGUST, 1890. 


c..1)' A YIX(T ju,.;t returned from an after-dinner stron in the tree

hadows :r:tst the 
-::11 cottagps and out to "-pst Point, I am nuw eome to rest awhile on the rocks 

 to tell you all about thp Sanù Hills, the whitf' llunes that stretch awa.y 
nOl'thel'Iy from tlw Lake Shore House. 
The great lake, the fair Ontario, is ealm to-day; only t}uiet wa,,-es dl'ift 
languidly in, vanishing with a restful sigh as they touch the shore. and. as far 
as the eyp ean sep, t1w watpl'S arp blue and 1impiù, and full of tl::at SRme beautiful 
coloring you Sf'e e,-erywhere in the Great Lakes and down the grand St. Lawrence. - 
Near me the birds are singing, there is not a doml in the 8ky, and what with a 
wealth of sun-gold, and a :,:uft perfumed wind stirring the woods to music. the 
SllmlU('l' day is ideal. 


Herp near mp lie tIlt' hills. Tt'n miles aw
\y, down in Picton viewed froDI 
l\Iacaulay.s Hill tlwir sand!'; seem white in eontrast with all that is dark al-out 
them, hut df)
e hy they are of a delicate fawn color, and, composed chiefly of fine- 
quartz, are ht'a,'y, :,,11 that once when a barrelful was sent away several hundred 
miles distant, the barrel reacheù it
 destinatiun, empty. 
The ehain is composed uf Ulany hills of yariuus heights. the sands shadowed 
here and there with grow's of e,-ergrepns and poplarö. Only yesterday I climhed 
one of the hills and restell there to I'ead awhile from au: old volume. and my 
thoughts soon tilled with the poet-soul that had passed this way more tb
JJ sixty 
YE'ars ago, and I s(JUght the mood which was his at the time of writing-the one 
true way to enjoy an author-and read again:bis verses written in 18
 


Here Kature in some playful hour 
Has fondly piled these hills of sand p 
,,-rhicb seem the frolic of her power, 
Or effort of some magic hand. 


Far o'er the wide extended shore, 
The hills in conic structure rbe, 
And seem as never trod bef'lre, 
Save by the playmates:of the_skie!J.

LEGEND OF THE LAKE ON THE MOUNTAIN. 



AYOrROLGH_-\.Y maidt'll mOl'e beautiful than all thel\Iohawks, Jetty were hel' 

 flowing locks and glo
sy like tlw plumage of the merle, Black and bright 
were lwr soft eyes, and her che('ks, ye}yet and red like the cheeks of the 
rose. Round, brown al'lllS had she, and dimpled hands, with wrists exquisite, f'un 
round with snow

 shells, 


Kow, when the fort'st re(\,('hes were brig-ht with. lilies, and the mountain-Iltke 

rown hlue again; when tllP wild-plum hlossometl white by the water. and a 
golden light was on the willows; early in the morning, at the rising of the fier
T. 
yellow sun. Tayoul'oughay, fail' chillI of an Iudian Chief. stood bent:'ath tht:' shadow 
of a pine, The fragrant wind came rustling with a silvery souml through the 
thin, silky lean'" of the forest, pau,;ing with a faint sigh in the tlark hranche
 of 
the pÍlws, and stirring the long, shining tJ'essps of tlw Inùian girl. 


H!:,l'e wlll'l'e she stood the hill began, and a narl'OW, shaduwy path led down 
through the wood by viut's aIllI flowers for lU:wy a span, to the ShOl'(' of a hav- 
the beautiful sun-Ioyed Bay of Quinte. 


\Yith one slllall hand shading her t:'Y(':., she gazed with a keen gazp {'astward, 
out whel'e the water glpanu.tl, Sl'al'l'e ruttled by the coming in of the morning. 


Pl'eseutly, from the shadow of a gret:'u point, a light ('anoe came rippling out, 
on the yellow reach. Then anothel' and another followed; and on they canl{' 
until Tayoul'oughay had count('d nigh to three score. FelTentlyslw praised l\Ianitto. 
clasppd again her how and m'I'OW, and turned into the wood. And glad was 
llt:', 
for in all the swift canl wS she had lookpd for a tuft of snowy plumes, and had not 
seen it. Now, thb spray of white plulllps made bright the how of the 
Black-Snake, Annosothka's canot:': and Annosothka was mad with lo,-e of 
Tayouroughay who loveù anothel.. 


Alas! the one she loved was lying silent sOllll'wllPre beneath the wind-swept 
grasse:,;, and for Annosothka she had no care. nor was she happy wl1('n he was near. 


l\Ieanwhile it happened, whl'n the sun wa.<; high in the heavt:'Il, th
re came 
slowly along the opposite shore a solitary young Indian, weary anti half-famished. 
Hunted and driven by brigands fl'om the sunny isla.nds of the blue LaùaUlLl1na, 
thus far had he paddled with scarce a morsel of food.

REGINALD GOURLAY, (PICTON.) 




 RIGHT clouds are lwaped in glittering sheaves 

 Adown the west: while rivalling leaves, 
Autumn's gay frost-paint, o'er the forests old, 
On IlHUl)- a maple crest their glowing tints unfold. 
For in their brightest rohes the trees appear, 
To greet the joyful month to sportsmen dt>ar. 


\Vith whirring wing, from the thick cover's height 
The startled partridge spee Is his arrowy flight. 
A luomPllt's glance, as in t.he air he sIwings, 
A Illoment's glimpse of those swift moving wings, 
Enough for sportsman's aim. The rocks resound. 
And the quick flash lights the dar
 woolUands I"ound
 
The good retriever forward blithesome springs, 
And hack the feathered spoil in triumph brings. 


In those thiek tangled places, 
\Yhich the wild vine enlaces. 
The pointer seeks the track, 
\Yhere woodcock, forth and hack, 
Have marked through devious ways their various traces. 


Swift from the covel' stirred 
Twists the wild dodging bird. 
The gun-stock presses quick the huntpr's face, 
Twigs fl}-, and floating by, 
The tell-tale streams of dark r2d fe:lthers race.

t of time with 111e 
W halmy, sunshmy ones of 
\..ugust, dra gged Itself wearily a..'ay.. :a.nd wø' 
followed by a damp<.'r, drearier night. 
Not a. sunheam had penetrated the dull grey douds that llUDg aTI ùa)" lìk-e aD. 
unlovely shroud over the cheerless earth. 
A few stray rain-drops had fallen since mid-day, and as the eTEntll,g
112des 
deepened in the west, the clouds drifted nearer, dark and threatening. 
The wind moaned among the tree-tops and over bleak stretches of Bltro'1Ù-DlV- 
land, dying away in the waste places of the neighbor iDg hills on ",'hflse craggy 
summits the massy clouds seemed to rest. 


At the columnftl entrance of a mansi-ou sit uated in the snbnr.bs øf oue'Of 
Canada's fail' eities, a maidC'n with auburn ri nglets :lDd 
yes of haze]. that 
witching, imh.scrib:tble hue so selùom met with, saye in novels, was 
.Dgag

earnest cOl1vprsa.tion with a luuulsome youth. over whose natur

countenance the surrounding gloom had cast a slight shadow. 


It was their hridal pve. The night was ominous.. Soon the vvice of aisbl1t 
thulldel' reached them and checked their speech. 
As they stood on the marhle steps looking out into. the darkness, a roo! 'Mind 
wafted the sweet odor of late hlossoms toward tlH'D1; a. shower of crisp 1e2\"e5 
from a rosto' vine that twined in great thorny coils around o.ne of the hlIgb IJiUar
 
fluttered down at their feet with a soft rustle, and a night-bird with ...
ird cry 
swept past them. 


They returned to the cheerful light of the dra n iug-room, and wbMl tbf'lime 
of clC'parture had arrived, lone accompanied lwr lover to the little gameD 
-æ. 
His path lay through the garden and on into the well-wooded park that Sf'pnrnbd 
their homes. The}T lingf'rPd at the gate, a gent Ie light streaming from au open 
window out over th<, well-worn path that led to it. The night grew darke.l". 


They 8poke of the morrow and wished for sunshine. A 'brillia'ut flasb of 
lightning pierced the southern sky, a few large dro.ps plashed on the earth about 
them, and Alphus ha.ving murmured a, loving good night, proceeded homew.anl 
through the leafy w()()(ls, no thought of dangpr mol('sting him. He thought only 
of the dear one frolll whom he had just patted, and l"Pjoiced to. think tilõLt it 1\ as

Keeping well in the shadow of the

st..&tione11 himself beneath [one's casemeut. Here Ill-' remained until the city 
bell. clúmed the midnight hour. 
l.Vßen lone parted from Alphus at tne gate she walked thoughtfully haek tu 
Cà.e house. Heru, her great shaggy 
ewfoundland, was at lwr side, whining and 
springing up to lick her hand. 


.'l)uwn! Hero, see, you would brush away his eal'e

lzer injured hand with her other one.

The wind howled among the tan trees and a chilly gust entered aUlI flickered

J aQ.I1. 



í ACK waR It hold recruit-in fact at times a little too, bold. He had been at, a 

 )[i1itary College for several short months and hwllearned to go through. 
\..:./' his fadngs like a veteran, especially the Habout" mG'
ement, (this he had to- 
perfection, having acquired it while under "Restriction øf leave," turning grace-' 
fully round amI round in the one dh'ection, often getting \lis ('hain and himself.. 
though, in a grand tangle which sometimes almost strangled him) when. suddenly 
and without ceremony one day he was rusticated-yes, Iitl'l'ally rusticated. 
POOl' Jack! It was his firl5t trip on a stelunboat, and it didn't seem to agree- 
with him very well, making him rather ner'
ous and CI'068. And no wonder!- 
'Vhen we went down to see him, there they were cooxing him to eat raw 
potatoe",. Ugh! as if even a bear would ever take to s1.1<"h thing
. Jack, anyway 
was an exception, having been àc('ustomëd of late to well-cooked vegetables. fish... 
bacon, Rocky Mountain goat, strawberries and lilac blossoms. So he shoved thE" 
raw things awa)-, the man remarking: "He hasn't any appetite. 'Ye've fed 
him everything on tlw boat..' 
"Pp, Jack!" I said. snapping my finger
, and he immediately rose on 
his hind feet. "Right turn-left turn." This done, he went down again and 
hegan hi:s "about.' movenwnt over his chain, when presently, along came a young 
Ulan with half a banana. Now! where was Jack's appetite? 
Dropping it on the floor (the banana, of course) the clever fellow opened ont. 
the yellow skin with his black paws, s('rap{'(1 out the mellow fruit and devoured 
it with a fine relish, then rising again he came close to us with a queer little' 
sound in his throat-his way of asking for more. 
'VeIl, )fajor Jack, as we called him, though ")linor" would ha,,-e been more' 
ëtppropriate in one sense, as be was not yet a year and a half old. did not rem:,iu. 
long in the country. He was an ambitious fellow and preferred life at East Poin
 
and as several intRrested parties. on account of his cannibalistic inclinations. also 
preferred it for him, he took his departure for the city on the following morning 
h:lving rem:..ined awake allllight to be sure to cat('h the 6:30 boat.

C1Q.li 8. 


;r10LLY had been staying at Glen Island, one of our delightful summer resorts,. 

 but two short weeks, and already half a dozen men were eagerly watching 
for some slight sign of encouragement to offer her their hearts and hands. 
for "better or worse." At the end of the third week, two of them having becomp-- 
desperate rivals had spoken-the onp, an eldprly wenlthy New Yorl gentleman,. 
to hpr uncle; the other, a young Toronto barrister, to herself-and both ha(t 
been aecppted, thus making matters rather perplexing at the outset to all parties 
interested. However, an interview that same night hetwepn Mr. Fitzgerald and. 
his charming niece, though not righting the matter as it should have done, set it._ 
at any rate, on a fail' way in that direction. During the afternoon while Dolly'
 
uncle had been trolling for maskinonge and listening to his friend's interesting 
discourse regarding his beautiful wnrd, she herself had been hearing a far sweeter 
story told her among green shadows on the shore at Glenora. Shf' had gone out 
for a paddle with Jaek Darrdl, and while floating idly along under the hills they 
had pspied some pink sweet-hrier blossoms hack a little way by a fence along the. 
country road and had drawn up their canoe, and, after cutting a huge bunch of 
the fragrant flowers, had tarried for a while under a great tree near tbe water.s 
edge, and it was here the young harrister avowed his love. 
"Humph! Darrell-yon marry Darrell! and throwaway a chance not one. 
girl in ten thousand evel. gets. Do you know wbat you're doing. child? Y OUl" 
mother had enough of pOt"t'rty, and you remember her last words 
 'If Dolly 
e,,'er marries be sure it is some one who can take proppr eare of her.' DarrelL 
never can-he ba.s squandered what money he did have, and yours woultl go like- 
it. No. you will never have my consent. and you kno\v the consequences if ever-' 
you malTy without it. Now here's .Mr. Eastman ready to marry you to-morrow 
-you can live like a princess-" But here Mr. Fitzgerald was mterrupted by 
Dolly who, blushing scarlet, her eyes ftashing. declared positi'f'ely :-- 
UN ever ! uncle, I wouldn't mnrry him if he' were the last Dum on earth--and 
a!i for money, I wouldn't giV'e one hair of Jack's head for all the gold 
Ir.. 
Eastman ever dreamed of." 


That was conclusive. Howe,,'er. 
Ir. Fitzgerald continued the conversation 
and øtrange to say. at the end of ten minute:t he had yielded so far as to promise--- 
Dolly that if inside of a year and a half 
Ir. Darrell could show him a bank.. 
account to the amount of ten thousand. dollars he woulcl no longer Opp038 them.. 



LOST ON THE FALSE DrCKS. 


0:; 


This was indeed decidedly pleasant, so on the following ev('ning, just as a radiant 
full moon poured its molten silver out upon thp silent expam;es of the beautiful 
Ba.y of Quintt' and its hundred lovely hills. we found Jack and Dolly standing at 
the water's edge, sOluetinles conversing in low tones, at others, dreaming. 


Jack had told her what he proposed doing. Possessing a literary talent of a. 
high urder of merit, he had decided, suddenly, to write a hook. 'Vh)?, there 
were )1-, and B-, and L-, and several other journalistH, friends of his, who 
would be only too glad to assist him in the publication of it. And if he ch05
 a 
popular st)"le of story and had the book properly managed, there was no douht 
of its bringing him at least the stipulated dollars. 


During one of his fishing excursions down the bay one morning not long after 
his arrival at Glen Island, he h
td overheard SOllle yachtsmen down in Prinyer's 
('ove talking of some old fishermen at Smith's Bay, near a post office called 
'Vaupoos, who had told them a strange story of some queer islands out in the 
lake on which were sailors' gl'aves, each one having a rattlesnake in it. This 
interested him at the time, and he had m'en then wished to investigate the 
matter but could find no one who cared to venture out with him to these islands, 
the False Ducks, a dangerous mass of ('ocks and sand with a few trees, lying out 
in Lake Ontario off Timber Island. 


However, he had now decided to find his way out to this little post office at 
Smith's Bay, an inlet of Lake Ontario in the region of the islands, learn what ht'" 
could of the mysterious story and see if he could induce one or more of the hardy 
fishel'men to run out with him to the Ducks. 


"Dolly," hë said at last, desperatel)', taking one of her warm, little white- 
hands in both his strong sun-browned ones, now that the moment had ceme to 
say good by, "Dolly, promise me you'll be true a y('ar-one year, and I'll return, 
with money enough to satisfy your uncle, and make ).ou my wife. Dolly, I sweal. 
k,! Tell me, will you be true to me ?" 
"Yes-always," was Dolly's reply, and thus they parted, he paddling off in. 
the moonlight to Glenora, she wa.tching him until lost in the shadows of thp- 
opposite shore. 
Me
\nwhile 1.lr. Fitzgera.ld was patting himself on the shoulder, so to speak. 
"Didn't I work up a clever sclH'me ! As if gold is to be. pieke<1 up 'ten thommnd 
 
at a time 1 And anywa)., who ever hears of 1m "en being true now-a-days fOl'- 
even six months. never seeing or hearing from each other. lis, ha, ha! Aml l

'heggar" on the old mill-pond at home. But Dolly must g

1by and by when he doesn't return at the appointed time, and he is certain 1101, to, 
if she begins to grow pale and lose her appetite I'll take her to Europe, an oce:tn 
voyaëe will cure bel', sure." 


So, arrangPlllcnts were made for their departure soutb on the morrow: And 
now let us follow Darrell. 


Staying O\,.er night at the botel at Glenora, be was up before sunrise the next 
morning, and taking a lallòt look perhaps forever from the brow of the great hill9 
at the beautiful i
land still wrapt in shadows, drove off through the quiet fa.rm- 
]a,nds of the beautiful township of North Mar:rsburgh. Not a sound was Jll'ard 
saxe an occasional bird singing, or the d
ep growl or barking of a farmer's dog as 
he passed quiekly by, n11(1 not long after sunrise having had a very pleasant drive, 
this being about the finest road in the county, he arrived at the shore where he 
found the fishermen astir hauling in their beavy nets and disposing of the fish, of 
which the). had caught a grea,t number. 
He bad come heN:' ostensibly to fish and tbe J)lan who had brought him out, 
intrortuced him to se'Ç'eral of the het.t-er class of fishprmen one of whom insistRd 
on his making himself "to home" at his shanty, as there was no inn ih tJlf
' 
neighborhoud. Thi
 suited D.trrell exactly, so he had his trap
 stowed away in iI. 
snug corner and sent his man back to Glenora with urdN'S to return for him at 
the end of a week. 


At the close of the day, after haying fished along the shortt in Iia1pid blue- 
green watcJ's since morning, and strolled through sWf'et-scellted field!!! and ('ools 
wooded places, ht, joined the fishermen in tht'ir usual evening smoke, awl telling 
<of tales, while one aft..t'r another the). recited 
trange adw'ntures and legends, 

aeh endeavoring to tell some story of more intRrest to Da-l'r4.'Il than had bt.,"{:'Jl the 
preceding om's. 
They were 6ittinK in a cirde on big stont's nnd It couple of rmle wooden &.'a

 
and all this time there was one amung them, a mid{lle-aged man, who had not 
yet "poken a \vord. He Rat on It low, flat f;tOIll" clost' to the ",hore. his hat waH 
off showing a Jllas
 of bla('k wavy hair, his emit also had been thrown aside; 
there was a rent in his old ('oarse cotton shirt, on the .,honldt'r, and one could Sf.'.C 
whet'e the sun had bm'n
 a deep rf'd RpOt on his flpsh which was almo"t snow- 
white. Occasionally he blew smoke-wreaths from between his red lips, and only 
at such times did he take hi" eyes off the dist
nt lake; and by llnd by when the 
last f'tory wa..'! nearly <'n(led, he deliberately l'mptied the hot a
hes out of hilS 
pipe, took from one of his pockets a hhtek hit of cotton, wiped the inside of his 
l)ipe wl.Il with this, IWd then fitting th.' bowl of it onto the end of 
me of his 
finger" turm'd it f;lowly round and round by its stt'ln. Prl>sentl). a dead silence 
fell on the groteHque circle. They s(.t'med to he waiting for some one to speak. 
Soon the man sitting near the shore shuffled around and

{IT 


took a position on the other side of the stone facing his compa.nions, and began. 
speaking in a full, clear voiee, his bands locked tog-ether ahout one knee :- 
"'Durin' the war of 1812 at the time the English were blockadiu' O::m-ego, a 
corvette havin' in èharge a big SUln of gold to pay their soldiers, was cut loose by 
the enemy one bowlin' night and bein' drÍ\"en out beyond all hopl' of shelter, met 
with one mishap after another. At length the crew mutinied, the spirit-room 
was broken into and at sunrise on the second day sh(' was llothin' better than 
kindlin' wood on the trea('herons shore of the False Ducks, wherf' more than one- 
poor, storm-driven "sinner" has siJict-" that time been pounded into bits. ,Those of 
the crew yet livin' buried the dead 'uns i. sandy 
pots on the isiami where they. 
had been wrecked, and then followeù a miserahle time; t.here was nothin' to eat 
and soon the rest of 'pm clied, the hones of the last 'un bein' left above ground to 
bleach out in the sun. 


Sevl'ral years later on, an English gentleman, a hrother of one of the sailors OIL 
the smashl'd-up corvette, havin'learned the partie'lars of the disaster came out to. 
f'allaùa and visited this island hopill' to bp able to find his brother's hones and take 
'('m home with him to .England. But this was not to be, for on opl'nin' one of the

th('l'e wa

 concluded now, he rl'-fillt'd his pipe, lighted it and strollelileisun'ly up- 
aud down the shore. Presently Darrell joined him, for a mOml'llt only, as he did 
not like to attract the attention of the otht'rs to the great interest he already felt

in this strange man; 
o he merely appointecl a lUpeting sumewhel'e along the shore on 

 he following morning where they could talk unmulesb'd. for this was the very 
story he had come out here to take notes on, and there were some important 
points on whkh he wished further information. 


In due course of time, the appointed hour arriyed and while they talked 
together in a secluded spot near where a little sihrer stream dropped down o'-e1' 
hright pebbles into the lake, it suddenly occurred to Darrell: "-hy not take a 
run out to the Ducks SOlue fine day, examine the gran's, and get a COlTPct idea of 
the place gl'm'rally. So he IH'oposed it to his companion, who was known to the 
peopip ronnd where Ill' li,red, simply as, Old )Iichael, though why he was so 
desigllH.ted Darrell wondpred, for besides being not yet more than forty years of 
age, he was a rl.'nHtrkably wpll-presern'j and fresh-looking fellow. 
Dal'l'ell also suggested that he accompan)- him, expecting of COUl'S(', an instant 
rdusal. But. right gladly was he surprised when Old 
Iichael tnrning to him in 
his own peculiar way, his bands held, one in the other ùC'hind him, hi:,; heall 
slightly inclined on one side, replied :- 
"Yes, [ will, ::\11'. Darrell. I kind 0' took a sort 0' fancy to you the minNte I 
:,;et my eyes onto 
-our face. and I'd go with you anywhere, en'n out to thenl 
Ducks, that I would-providin' we won't be there at night." 
S,,) it was agleed that, as the weather promised fail' tney would spt out after 
noon the next day, spend the night at Timber Island and run out to the Ducks 
the following morning. 


Darrell impatient to be off, to knuw that every puff of wind wafted him so 
luuch nearer that strange shore he was so eager to see, scarce knew how to 
t'mploy tht' intl'rH'ning time. 
AHcr fishing awhile, he threw down his rod-what was thp gool! of f'pt'nding 
his time this way? He was ahsent-minded, jerking his line oftentillle-ð before the 
fish had qnite reached the bait. At one moment he was 011 t1w islands, and 

xtl.milling the gran's, then his book was published, it was a sUe('e
s, aud now he. 
was on his way hack to Dolly wondering lIow glad she would bp to 
e l1illl. So 
he left off fishing, and hunting up Ollp of his note-books spent the rt'uminder of 
thl' day umkiug a rough skl't,ch of his book. 


'Yhen next we s('(> him he has set Bail with Old .Michael off the north shore of

,on miles about them, Darrell was contemplating another visit to Glen hlalHl 
next SUmllWl' and a sail round into SJllith's Bay-only Dolly would bp with him 
'then, and instead of this common fishing-boat, they 'would have a fine yacht, with 
a cabin; or, pprhaps, a small steam-yacht. Thus did Darrell dream, like many 
.;l1lother so given to optimism. It is true there are those who find happiness 
mostly in dreams. 


The weather still continuing fail' with no sign yet of a change, they saih'd on 
-out the next morning at sunriBc to the Falsp Ducks which lie about i.L mile Hnd a 
'half off Timber Island. The island it..<;elf at the Ducks is a small one with a few 
,trees growing on it, and rank, wild grasse8. The shore is rocky in some plal'es 
.and gravelly or drifted with sand in others, and nRal' the island arC' ,-arious piles 
of great rocks and gravel and sand, some helow or just reaching to the surface of 
the lake, others formin.g small rugged isla.nds, making- the spot an exceedingly 
.tla.ugerous one for vessels palSsing near in time of storms. 
Darrf'll was out of the boat the moment they tow'hed the shore, Old )[iehael 
following close at his hepls and drawing up the boat on a gravelly spot hetwepn t\\ 0 
great stones. D.ll'J'ell haA.l brought 
'ith him a spade that he might examine une 
or nlore of the gran;s, also a ehisel and a hammel', and these he touk from the 
;hoat and 1)laced for the time being, unùer the edgt' of a huge rock. Then looking

more than half a century, he canle upon some bones crlllubling int. dust. There
 
had been no coffin and the tarpaulin in which Ute sailor had been buried, had 
long ago ceased to be any protection against the ravages of Time. , 


Shovelling in the earth and p
\,('king it do
n us well as he could, he lwxt went 
to tht' isolated one on the left. and, digging slowly now, for he 'was somewhat 
tired, he came eventually upon the remains of a rude wooden coffin, and present- 
ly, in clearing away the (lecayed mass of wood from t,he bones which it covered,. 
his spade struck against some bit of lUpta'!. Picking it out quickly he fonnd it to. 
be a small steel case; what it had been fashioned for originally it would he 
impossihle to say. However Darr('ll opened it and to his astonishment found in 
it a bit of yellow paper folrled in tin-foil, having writing on the inside of it whieh 
was !>till quite legible. He had dropped his spade and was sitting on the ('dge of 
the grave, fairly trembling now with excitement, his feet almost touching the- 
crumbling bones beneath-in each of the graves he had found the skeleton of a 
r
tttel-:o\nake, the reptiles having long since ceased to keep wateh over the 
mouldering dead within. 


And this is what had heen written apparently with a charred point of wooù. 
n few words only, telling how they had managed to save from the lake t.he che...;t 
containing the soldiers' pay, and. following it. a dl'seription of the spot where- 
it had heen concealed. with dirl'ctions hmv to find it : 


"Starting out from two large stones of equal size lying side by sids on the south 
shore go north to a stunted oa
 tre9-now tur:1 to th3 left by a rocky ridge pass 
on the right of a gravelly hollow and go on to soma big flat stones-the cqest is 
under the middle one." 


Of course the 11l<1l'kings were more or less altere/I, yd, in the Gourse of an hour 
he came upon a spot answering pretty ael'urately to the de:o\l'ription of the plaee 
where tIll' gold was buried, and turning" aside several of the stones, began digging 
unùer tàe centre one. ' 


Darrell v;as fascinated. He wOI'ked quickly now, excitenH'nt lending him 
strength. '\
hat he dug out eoltsbteù chiefly of gravel and sand with an 
oecasional smooth stont', and lw had reaeht'/l a depth of about fi.fte('l1 inches
 
when presently his spade sPC'lDf'd to go in easily, touch against something whieh 
felt like metal and slide on ; and he lifted it carefully, tllP top gravel and sand 
falling aside and leaving on his spade a mixture of sanù, fiue gr:wel, nnd mouldy 
hits of wood. 


And was it nt\ illusion? "
hat were these?

1>e necessary to con\ ince any of my readers not already familiar with the localitie:'õ 
aud scenery referred to, of the great treat in store for any who may be wlie or 
fortunate enough to verify this history by their own personal experiencl'. 


On the 8th day of July, lR91, we "weighpd a!1chor" hy untying the rope that 
beld our yacht to the buoy in Picton Harbor, and to be accurate, the Dolphin 
swung off to the wind at ll:BO <l. m., and forthwith was commenced the proceS5 
-of hea.ting out, the win,d bt>ing norther:y to north.westt>r1:r. and "light a.nd 
baffling" according to t3.e log. This process nnùer such circumstances is SOlllP- 
what t...dious, the inner harbor being rather narrow, and the banks on the wu
-terly 
side high anfl preeipitol!s, causing at times varying currents of wind differin
 
matf-'rially from the direction of the wind outside, 


At length we passed through the narrows at Chimney Point and soon werp in 
the broad bay and on the "hounding billows." The breeze freshened up, the weathel- 
was fine and all hearts wel'e light, our pulses bounding with the billows. This 
))ay mar bC' called the outer harbor; it is much more capacious than the inner. 
and the wa.tel' genet'ally of good dppth. Perhaps not the whol... British Nayy. 
but I think I would be safe in saying the whole American 
aYy l'ould here with 
ease ride at am'hor, and the smallest Lake Ontario vessels. at anehor here. 
woald be quite safe in the worst storm tha.t ever visits these watpl'S. 


The scpnel'y along this p
lrt of the Bay of Qllinte is eXl"Pptionally beautiful. 
From beginning ,to end this ha,y abounds in seenes of varied ana pietur(,"flue 
loveliness and to aMyone duly appreeiative of sueh exquisitp bits of tine sl"puery. 
whprp land and water may hp said to vie with each other in adding channs, and 
l)rodlll"Íllg" seem's outriv,llling fabled fairyland. it is worth coming al'ross the 
ocean. ayC', from the ends of the earth to see and enjoy. I ma:r hpre lx, thought 

, littlp too enthusi:u.,tk over this matter, hut I really think it would hp impol"sihlt-' 
for me by any picture I h;L\"e thp power to draw to do anything like complete 
j1Htice to our be;LUtiful and fal'-fa,med Bay of Quinte. It has to be se('l1 to he 
appreciated, and after that 


"None know it hut to love it. 
NOI' name it but to pr:tist"." 


And now to return to our voyage. As out yacht sped a.ltmg &t tht" h('hest He

to go so carelessly wading around 50 far from shore. 
rese!ltly wc decided on

Cooking is nø snap here. A short description would make it more vivid. 
First, there is no circulation of air about the stove. You are supposed to walk 
.aJol!g the cabin and steer clear of the table on one side, and the bunks on the 
other. Then you have to bend for fear of thumpint; your head against the cciling, 
and k.eep a continual watch below that you do not stumble over some of C.'
 
blgga.ge. You bend your left side in to keep clt>ar of the table, nnd your knees 
tile other way so as not to ['un into thc seats. This gin's you a graceful motion. 
V oa \"ery much resemble the figure 3 built on the bias two different ways. This 
OD
Y ta.kes you as far as the stm"e. 
J dcfy any man to huild a fire in this stov.c without getting at least five good 
long pot-black marks along his arms. "Te wipe these off on thl' dish towel. 
After starting the fire, ).ou have 1,0 stir the pOl'l.idge eontinually with one hand, 
and with the other 
et thc table, snIt the porridge, get the butter, dilute the milk 
60 as to make it go f.u.ther, cut tIle bread, keep the fire going, open fruit, &c. 


You cannot possibly cook without a good nose. You have to smell the milk 
to m1tke sure it is not sonr, the butter to see it is not covered with coa.l oil, ltnd 
the porridge to see it is not hurned, but care must be taken not to hlister your 
DOse or it may lose its usefulnes'S. Then there are many other little things to be 
done, but I think I had better quit now and leave some room for the others.

Islands. 


BY AGNES MAULE MACHAR UN THE WEEK). 



EYER a dpple upon the dver. 
@ As it lies like a mirror, beneath the moon 
--Only the shadows tremble and quiver. 
'Neath the b:dmy breath of a night in June. 


All dark and silent, eaeh shadowy island 
Like a silhouette lies on the silver ground. 
".hile, just above us, a roc'ky highland 
Towers, gl'Ïm and dusk, with its pine trees crowned. 


Ne,'er a sound but tilt' waves' soft 1)lashing 
As the hoat driftg ..idly the shore along- 
And the darting fh'e-flies, I:o>ilently flashing, 
Gleam, living diamonds - the wouds among. 


And the nig}1t-hawk flits o'er the buy's det'p bosom, 
And the loou's lau
h hr('aks through tIll' midnight calm. 
And the luscious breath of the wild vine's blossom 
'Vafts from the roeks like a tide of balm.

i and serene is her front, the city that gU<1rdcth the gateway; 

 She to whom storm is but laughter, who makcth the torrent her mo<:k ; 
She who is fortrcss-crowned, who beareth a fleet in her bOhom, 
'Yho is girdled with grPt'n. and dothed with a glory of leaf amI of bIos SOIU- 
City enthroned on the rock! 


.::\Iemol'Y, tradition are hel's, haunting her name like a perfume; 
'Yhen smiling' rivals were not she could ).Ilurmur, "I Ii ve." 
Here for a hundred years she has set her face to the morning, 
'Yhisper of praise she heeds not J softly the answer returning: 
.')Iille not to seek hut to give !" 


Fail' is she in the spring-time when a bride-veil of mist wreaths her isla ndtò ; 
Fair wlwn the flashing crystals glemn white in the frost king's bre
tth ; 
Fair when her domes aud her towers are in smuluer-tranced waters hehold"l1 ; 
But fairest of all when in splendors ruddy and golden 
H\'r maples go down to their death. 


)II,re than h{'auty is hers-great lives claim her as their cradle; 
Xauws that 
hall never die are ins('l'ihed on the rolJ of her fame. 
'Yhen, in the time to CO]))(', are repeated in song and in story 
Dc'eds of the Iwrol's of old, with a share in their glory 
)Icn shall u

ß EI:'i'G in the direct line of through tr.wel east and west. Glen Island is very 
aecess
ble. The Grand Trunk Railway mail line from Toronto to Montreal 
makes direct connections with the bay ports, Trenton, Belleville, Deseronto", 
Picton, Napanee and Kin
ston, from which elegant steamers daily, some hourlYr 
call at Glen Island or Glenora, the latter place being but one mile from Glen 
Island, with ferry connection between. 
The morning express from Toronto connects daily with the steamers at 
Deseronto, Napanee and Picton, which land passengers at the Island the same- 
afternoon; and with the steamer at Kingston, whieh stops at Glenora opposite.. 
The Royal )Iailline steamers from Toronto going east land passengers at 
Kingston, where the Hero can b, taken to Glenora. daily. This is a dElightful 
trip. On returning they connecWat Deseronto with the Rathbun steamei', mak- 
ing direet connection from the Island. 
The route from the east is quite as convenient. 
Although so easily reached, Glen Island afforùs all the isolation and retire- 
ment found in the hackwoods, a great charm to the lover of nature in her pristine- 
wilùness.

The scenery around the Island is unsurpassed on the Continent. The hath- 
ing is excellent, and the shores slope so gradually that there is ahsolutel
- no- 
danger to children and those who cl'tnnot swim. The hoating is all that could be- 
desired. No tides or currents 01' treacherous squalls. A canoe can traverse the- 
hay with perfect safety. The fishing has been recommended enthusiastically by 
international anglers for years. Lawn tennis and cro(l'.let grounds, &c., &c. 
Daily mail and papers. 
But a stone's throw awav is the far-famed Lake on tlw :Mountain. A de- 
lightful half-hour's ride on the steamer takes 'you to Picton, a heaut1fullittle town 
of SOIlle 3,000 inhahitants. From there an hour and a quarter's drive through a 
lovely ("ountry brings one to the Sand Banks, an interesting sight, and you are 
back to the Island the same evening. The Thousanù hlauds aloe but a few hou
 
ride hy steamer from the Island. 
Spring well water, cold and pure, an old fashioned country well on the 
Island. This will be appreciated by parents who dread the deaùly ice water in. 
the hot weather.
