As it was summer time and the weather warm, Mr. T. invite<l the Frenchman to sit with him on the |x>rcli. This he did. placing his valise beside him.

Then the cruel un dertow swept arms and legs anil all swiftly out, so that when Miss Dolly Patterson, of whose anato my these excited limbs were a part, reappeared on the surface, she was away beyond the line ol breakers trying to gain a foothold on a bar. In a moment a big roller raised her from her place and carried her out into deep water. It was in vain that the plump arms clutched whole handfuls of water. The little heart palpitated faster than ever, the hands and legs grew weaker and weaker, and the little girl thought one very brief prayer, with the “amen” vciy near the- “Our Father,” but it was ter ribly earnest for all that, Dolly was drowning. Then her senses were about to leave her, when she felt a strong pair of sun browned arms encircle themselves around her like a bon constrictor and a few minutes la ter she was stretched out on thc beach, the object of fifty curious eyes, anil the subject of the most devoted attention from the owner of the sun browneil arms. This happened two weeks ago.
