A MINOR'S LOVE STORY.
Nelly Glover was the prettiest lass
in the pit village. Her eves were of
the sweetest blue ; her cheeks were like
a rose ; and you might have thought
ner brown hair was the finest silk?—
Then she had a figure like a fairy, it
i was so trim ; and with a waist'you
could almost span. I loved Nelly, but
as for that, all the chaps of the village
were of the same mind, and she might
have had her pick of us ; the worst of ii
was, she treated us all alike, and
wouldn t look at one any more than
another. She had a smile for every
body,and was always good tempered,
but there it ended , and, somehow, none
ol us could screw up courage enough to
try her further. 1 don’t know how
olten I thought it over. It came into my
head the first thing in the morning, and
there it remained the last thing at night,
when it either kept me awake, or
haunted my dreams. At last it took
possession of me. No matter where I
was, digging, or blasting, or tunneling;
above ground, or down in the pit; my
thoughts turned on Nelly, and from
being the merriest fellow in the village,
I just came to be the dullest. One
morning there was no work in the pit
for my gang, beeaus the viewer wanted
that part of the seam shored up, and it
struck me, all at once, that I would
have it out with Nelly, so I made my
self smart, and set out, \jalkiug as
brisk as if it was a wager. Ynu may
tfiink it conceit in me, but I 0311 say
that I was then as clever a chap to look
at as you would often see and I knew
it! For all that, I began to walk a bit
slow when I caught sight of Mrs.
Glover's cottage, and I fell of my heart.
But I went on, and I just got up to the
cottage when who should come out but
Nelly herself. She never looked pret
tier than at that minute; but appearing
so suddenly, she dashed my spirit, and
I hadn’t a word to say to her.
“Why, Charley, what is the matter?”
she cried, in a frightened sort of way.
“Well, it is just this,” I said. Aiid
there l stopped.
“Is anything wrong with Jack?”
she cried, quickly.
“Yes, he is down in the pit; they
say it is foul, which makes mother and
me uneasy. You havn’t heard any
thing? And she looked in my eyes as
if she would search me through.
“No, no,” I answered, steadying,
now that I thought I could comfort
her. “He is all right. You tnusn't
mind what the old women of the vil
lage say, or you’ll be looking for a
blow-up every day in the year, when
there is nothing more than common.
1 haven’t come to you about Jack,
Nelly ; it is about myself.”
She gave me another look, now ;
then her cheek flushed up like a flame,
and her eyes turned away.
“Do you know what I want to say,
Nelly?” I went on. “I wish you did,
for I can't tell it. It is more than 1
have got words for. How 1 love you,
how you are always belore me, how I
am crazed, and maci about you ! But
though I can’t say all I want to, here I
stand, and I wouldnrit change with a
king, if you’ll take me cs I am !”
“Ah, Charley ! you don't know how
you pain me,” she answered.
“Dont say that. Nelly. I doubted
about speaking to y ou’, but now that I
have d'»ne it, now that I can’t go on
deceiving myself, if you have any pity
in your heart, show it to me, and l
will cherish you to the day of mv
“It is no use,” she replied, “I can
never marry a pitman. I gave the
promise to mother and Jack, when wc
walked up the village at the funeral of
my father and brothers, all three killed
in the mine—our great sorrow', which
I can never think of without crying.”
And the tears, it is true, were
ning down her cheeks, though, for the
moment she seemed to me to be harder
than stone. And I seemed turned to
Btone myself. I had no recollection,
no feeling, and no sense, and I couldn’t
have moved a step to have saved mv
life. Then it all flashed upon me like
lightning. I took a last look at Nelly,
dropped my head upon my breast, and
without a word more, walked out of the
Our village seldom looked bright, no
matter how the sun shone and now 1
felt as if the sun would never shine
again for me, so, as my eye fell on the
line of cottages, w ith the clouds hang
ing down from above, and nothing
round but a waste, I thought I as
well be 111 my grave as continue to
live there. Besides. I should always
be meeting Nelly, perhaps lurking
about her mother’s cottage, and making
her as miserable as myself. YVhv
shouldn’t Igo away, to Yorkshire, or
Derbyshire, or to the diggings in Aus
tralia, for that matter? 'I he notion, if
it was good for nothing more, gave me
a little more spirit. It turned my
thoughts, and I stepped out quicker,
going straight home. 1 hadn’t much to
settle there, only to bid good'by to
the folks I lived with, and I came out,
pack cn back, and began my tramp.
I stopped at the moor, and looked
brek, remembering I might never see
the place again, and, dismal as I now
thought it, with its gaping walls and
shaken roofs encumbering the black
o ;eJ ground. 1 hail been happy there.
Not one el those cottages but would
open its door to me; not, one where I
wouldn't meet a friend. And there l
had been bojn ; it was the spot on
earth that, even in that hour of hitter'
ness, I loved best, and I didn’t turn
away without dashing my hand across
over my eyes.
I was walking on, when suddenly
the air rang with a crash that shook
the ground. 1 knew what it signified;
such sounds denote but one result in
the black country’, and throwing down
my pack, I Jutted oiT to the spot, with
the feelings that animate every miner
on such occasions,
It didn’t seem a minute before 1
came to the dust'heaps round the pit’s
mouth, but some were there before me,
and the off-men and the women were
rushing up from the village in a stream.
The smell from the pit almost knocked
me down as I came up, and I had to
get mv breath a little, when three or
four of us crept up to the mouth, and
looked down. The explosion had de
stroyed the cage, not leaving a stick of
it, but it had not injured the signal
rope ; hence a means ol communication
remained for any one immediately be
low. As soon as I saw this I set to
work to rig a cross bar, and presently
had it ready.
“Just lower me gently,” I said to
two banksmen. “[ may pick up one
or two, if there’s any near.”
“You can’t go down yet!” cried the
viewer. “How many are in the pit?”
“Hall an hour ago there were fifty,”
replied the time-keeper; “hut, I am
thankful to say, they all came up but
“And they are all lost.” said the
viewer, “for there will be another ex
“I’ll go down anyhow,” I said dog
gedly ; “and if nobody will lower me,
i’ll jump down.”
A good many were on the heap now
men and women—some of the won
men crying and some praying; but
when I spoke out that way there was
a dead silence. Then two or three
called out, “(Jcod-by, Charly, God
bless you, brave lad.” The banksmen
lowered me down, and 1 same through
the pit’s mouth. A Davy lamp was
tim! around mv wi ist, and 1 held a rope
in my hand, so that I might signal to be
hoisted up if the air became too foul.
But I had no intention ol going back
till I hat! searched the pit, and seen if
any were alive. One thing I didn’t
care about, my life; and another, 1
would have been ashamed to lace the
o’ks above without doing something ;
so I felt impatient that they lowered'me
at such a snail’s pace, and I kept look
ing up and clown to measme the dis
tance yet to he traversed. The shalt
had never seemed so deep to me before.
I strained mv eyes into the darkness
below, and saw no bottom; 1 glanced
up, and the gleam of light grow small
er and smaller. I scanned the walls of
the shaft, and marked only their black
bound. But my progress was notified
by the increasing density of the air,
which began to aflect my breathing;
and, ns 1 went on, I had to shift my
face from side to side to make a little
curient. At last my feet touched the
ground. I locked around as I jumped
oil the straddle, and saw the furnace
was out, which put a stop to the ven
tilation of the mine, as far as it depen
ded on the brattices, and no air entered
but by the shaft. The stench was
overpowering, and from this and the
silence, I guessed the worst. It was
plain that tiie explosion had killed the
horses; for not a sound came from the
stable, which was close to the shaft ;
and what hope could there be for hu
man beings in a distant part of the pit?
You may be sure I didn’t stand to
make these refactions; they floated
across me and 1 was working forward,
before they got through my mind. I
knew the old mine blindfolded; hut
wh?.t with foul smell and the deep
gloom, I was some minutes scrambling
to the too of the incline, keeping my
arms stretched out as 1 went along, to
feel for anything in the way. And it
was lucky I did, or I should dash mv
head against some *mpty trucks, and in
the state I. was in, that would have
finished me. Thus I reached the first
gallery, which you could only enter
stooping. I pushed open the tr ip door,
and went on a few steps, though my
Davy lamp was what pitmen call ‘afire"’
the flame being all blue—and I knew
the air was so much gunpowder. But
I stumbled along; if I wasn't to save
any one, it didn’t matter what became
of mj self, and I pleased mvself v/ith
the thought that Nelly would hear I
had died in the attempt. And then,
a'.! at once, it came into rriy head what
she had said about her brother Jack
being in the pit. This gave my heart
such a turn that I staggered, and the
perspiration poured from my forehead
liky water. I rushed forward as if I
was mad ; my foot struck something ; I
bent down over what seemed to be a
corpse, and the gleam of the lamp fell
on its face. It was Jack Glover. 1
didn’t know whether he was alive or
dead, but I caught him in my arms, and
with the strength of a giant and the
speed of a deer—hardly conscious,
hardly breathing - l made a dash for
It was easier work going back, when
you were once in the main or horse
mad ; lor now the shall was before you,
instead of behind ; and, though _vou
wouldn’t think it, this made a wonder
ful dillerenee in the light. Dark ns
pitch it still was. though not to pit
men’s eyes, and I had found out that
Jack breathed when 1 reached the shat'*.
The discovery nerved me afresh, and I
kept all my senses at work without my
seeming to know it. I only felt there
s inn vr u and lie another explosion,
I placed Jack on the straddle, and
taking the rope from my Davy lamp,
tied him hand and foot, then pulled the
signal rope, and as the people above
hauled the tackle and lilted the straddle
front the ground, l hung on bv my
arms; thus we began to mount the
It wasn’t till we had got twenty feet
up that I felt the strain of standing on
nothing, hut, from that moment, it be-,
came just terrible. My hands seemed
ready to snap; ihc ache in my arms
spread through every muscle; my lx Pil
spun around; my feet kicked about in
agony. I watched the mouth of thn
pit.till mv eyes swam, and as I reck
oned the space between, mv strength
waned and mv misery deepened, I
thought I must drop before I readied
the top. J'hen they began to hoist
faster. I mustered all iny strength ; I
tightened my gripoflhe straddle, though
mv fingers were growing numb; I
steadied my sees, and hardly trusted
myself to breathe. I could se the walls
ol the shall; I could feel the purer air;
1 heard voices ; and presently tlu?
tackle swung; strong arms Vaught mo
round, and i was landed on the bank.
They had Jack Glover oil the straddle
before you could look aiound, and ho
was carried away, w hile they raised
my head and poured a little brandy in
my mouth. I called out for the viewer.
“What is it, Charley Batson?” bo
asked, bending over me.
“Everybody away from the pit, sir,”
on are right,” he answered; it
will come in a minute cr two.
J hev got me to the top of the bank,
w-hen I heard a scream, and there wan
Nelly, trying to throw herself on her
biother Jack, but kept back by the
other women. She never gianeed
round at me ! I wished then that I had
stopped in the pit, or let myself drop
from the bar, as 1 came up, and so es
caped seeing her aga n. But I made up
my mind that I had looked on | a . r f„ r
the last time. I told my helpers that I
could walk now, and when they let go
my arms, I turned towards the" moor,
intending to pick up my pack, and drag
on at least to the next village.
But I could no more walk five miles
than i could fly. \\ j| Pn ] <. anie l 0 j| ie
pack I sank down by it ni:d felt that I
must give up. I was so heated, that I
thought there was now another explo
sion at the pit, as I had exje ted, and
though it shook the ground under me.
1 didn’t lilt my head. All I thought of
was stretching out my arms and legs
and lying quiet. IL,w long 1 lay there
1 never knew. But by degrees 1 recov
ered a little strength, and my thoughts
took more shape, when 1 decided to
return to my old lodging and have n
day s rest before I set out on my wan
Ihe day passed and the night, and
the next day, and I wai still in bed, the
good folks tending me like a child. My
limbs, which had been racked with
pain, now' felt easy’, and I was ready
for a start again. But I thought there
would he opposition, bo I got up very
quiet, and was putting on my things,
when the room door opened, and to my
wonder, in catne Jack Glover.
“Halloo, Charley, here we are,” he
cried, seizing mv hand and giving it *
hearty squeeze. “Who would have
thought of us two being alive to-dav?”
“Well, Jack,” I answered, “I am
glad for yon. but I siiouldu’t have cared
“How’s that?” he asked.
“Because I have something on mv
mind.” ° y
“You ! he said, laughingly, and
