HIS Fl'llST EIGHT.
I A friend of riiuo, a noldicr, who died
in Qreeco of fever somo years since, do
ecribed to mo ono day his first engage
ment. Ills story so impressed mo that I
vroto it down from memory. It was as
j I joined my jcgimrut on Sit. 4. It
xn evening. I found tho colonel in tho
cnlnp. Ho received mo rather brrwmo
ly, lmfc having wad tho grurral's intro
ductory letter ho changed his manner
nud nddressed mo courteously.

Tliiw . .iijlani, whum tuqu.uut

a tall, dork man of hnrnh, rorwlHnpf nv

his he own 1, ah I was told, toubullit
wbloh had passed completely through
his body at tho battle of Jona.
On learning that I had just-onrtetfi i
clle; at Foitahiblc.in, he roninl "!
Vith a vsry face, "My lieutenant uicrl
I understood what ho implied "It is
for yua to toko his place, and ytm arc
good for nothing. "
A sharp retort was on my tonguo, buf
I restrained it,
Tho moon was rising behind the re
doubt of Cliovi vino, vhith 't to
cannon shots) from our cneampmi ut.
Tho moon was largo and red, ai is com
mon at her rising, but that night sho
seemed to mo of extraordinary size. For
an instant tho redoubt stood out co.il
black against tho glittering disk. It re
sembled thocono of a volcano at tho mo
niout of eruption.
I An old soldier at whoso sido I found
myself observed tho color of tho moon.
"SSho is very red, " ho wild. "It is a
sign that it will cost us dear to win this
wonderful redoubt. ' '
I was always superstitious, and this
jicco of nugury, coming at that mo
ment, troubled ma I sought my couch,
but conld not sleep. I roso and walked
about awhile, watching tho long lino of
fires upon tho heights beyond tho village
Whuu tho sharp night air had thor
oughly refreshed my blood, I went back
to tho firo. I rolled my mantlu round
mo, and I shut my eyes, trusting not to
open them till daybicak. Cut sleep re
fused to visit me. Insensibly my
thoughts grow doleful. I told myself
that I had not a friend among tho 100,
000 men who filled that plain. If I
wcro wounded, I should bo placed in
hospital in tho hands of ignorant ami
careless surgeons. I called to mind what
1 had heard of operations. Sly heart
beat violently, and I mechanically ar
ranged as a kind of rudo cuirass my
handkerchief and pockctbook upon my
breast. Then, overpowered with weari
ness, my eyes closed drowsily, only to
open tho noxt instant with a start at
somo now thought of horror.
Patiguo, however, at last gained tho
day. When tho drums beat at daybreak,
I was fast asleep. Wo wcro drawn up in
ranks. Tho roll was called, then wo
stacked our arms, and everything an
nounced that wo should pass another
Hut about 3 o'clock an nid-do-camp
arrived with orders. Wo wfro com
manded to take arms,
i Our sharpshooters marched into tho
plain. Wo followed slowly, and in SO
lnluntcs wo saw tho outposts of tho
Itus3iaus falling back and entering tho
redoubt. Wo had n battery of artillery
on our right, another on our left, bnt
both somo distauco in advanco of ns.
They opened a sharp firo upon tho cno
' my, who returned it briskly, and tho
redoubt of Chovcrino was i-oon coucc.il
cd by volumes of thick hinokc. Our regi
ment was almost covered from tlo Rus
sians' firo by n pieeo of rising grouud.
Their bullets (which besidos wero rarely
aimed at us, for they preferred to firo
uikmi our cannoneers) whistled over us
Cr at worst knocked up a shower of
earth and stones.
Just as tho order to ndvancc was giv
en tho captain looked at mo intently. I
stroked my sprouting mustuclio with an
"air of unconcern. In truth, I was not
frightened and only dreaded lest I might
bo tnougnt so. 'lliiu passing bullets
aided my heroic coolness, whilo my solf
respect assured mo that tho danger was
a real ono, sinco I was veritably under
fire, I was delighted at my self posses
sion and already looked forward to tho
pleasure of describing in Parisian draw
ing rooui3 tho capturo of tho ledoubt of
Tho colonel passed boforo our com
jj,my. "Well," ho enid to me, "you are'
gohif to seo warm woilt in your flist ac

off my cuff, on which a bulla tbioh
