And it was Imllt, and within n year
a festival was held there, and tho noblo
becamo enamored of his own creation,
for it was beautiful in its strength, and
tho fair domes admired its courtly halls
as much as tho warriors prized itH solid
walls and its commanding towers. And
thtiB Count Btibor bought off tho rock
fortress from his jester with gold, and
mado it tho chief placo of his abodo,
and ho feasted there with his guests
and mado merry with music and dances
until it seemed as though Hfo was to bo
for him ono long festival. Men often
walk over tho spot which afterward
opens to bury them.
Llttlo by littlo tho habit of self in
dulgonco grew upon tho luxurious noble.
Yet still ho loved tho chaso beyond all
olso on earth, and his dogs wcro of tho
fleetest and finest breed.
Ho was ono day at tablo, surrounded
by tho richest viands and tho rarest
wines, when ono of his favorito hounds
entered tho hall howling with pain and
dragging after him his wounded foot,
which dropped blood as lie moved along.
Terror Bcizcd upon tliQ hearts of tho
vassals oven before tho rago of their lord
burst forth, and when it caino terriblo
was tho storm, ns ho vowed vengeanco
against tho wretch who had dared thus
to nmtilato un animal that ho valued.
An aged slavo flung himself at his
feet. "Mercy, my lord, mercy!" ho ex
claimed plteously. "I havo served you
faithfully for years. My beard i3 gray
with time, and my lifo has been ono of
hardship. Havo mercy on me, for ho
flow upon mo and would havo torn mo
bad I not defended myself against his
fury. I might havo destroyed him, but
I sought only to prcscrvo myself. Havo
mercy upon my weakness!"
Tho angry chieftain, however, heeded
not tho anguish of his gray hairs, and,
pointing to a low balcony which ex
tended across tho window of tho apart
ment and hung over tho precipice, ho
commanded that tho wretched old man
should bo Hung from thcuco into tho
river which flowed beneath as an ex
amplo to thoso caitiffs who valued their
own worthless lives abovo thoso of his
As tho miscrablo tools of an imperi
ous will wcro dragging tho unhappy vic
tim to his fato ho raised his voico and
cursed tho tyrant whom they Fcrved,
and having dono so ho summoned him
to appear at tho tribunal, which nono
can escape, to answer for this his last
crime, on its first anniversary. Hut tho
powerful chief heeded not his words.
"Away with him I" ho said sternly as
ho lifted Ids goblet to his lips; and there
was a struggle, a Rhriek of agony and
then a splash upon tho river wave, and
all was silent.
A yt'ar wi'Ut by in festival and pride,
and tho day on which that monstrous
crimo had been committed rotnnied un
heeded. Thcrowas a feast in tho castle,
and Stibor, who month after month
gavo himself up yet moro to self indul
gence, gradually becamo heavy with
wino, and his attendants carried him to
a couch besido tho samo window whenco
tho unfortunato slavo had been hurled
13 months before,
Tho guests drank on for a time, and
mado merry at tho insensibility and
helplessness of their powerful host, and
then thoy departed, each to his business
or pleasure, aud left him thero alone.
Tho casement had been fluug back to
admit tho air fiecly into tho heated
apartment, and tho last rovcler had
scarcely departed, when a raven tho
somber messenger of Nemesis flow
thrico round tho battlements of tho cas
tle, and then alighted on tho balcony.
Several of tho guests amused thoir idle
ness by watching tho evolutions of tho
ill omened bird, but onco having lost
sight of it they turned away and thought
of it no more.
Meanwhile a work of agony aud death
had been delegated to that dark winged
messenger. It rested but an instant from
its flight cro onco moro it hovered over
tho couch of tho sleeping Stibor, aud
then, darting down, its sharp beak pene
trated at ono thrust from Ids cyo into
Tho agony awoko him, but ho nwoko
. only to madness from its extent. Ho
rcolcd to and fro, venting imprecations
to which nono was by to listen, and
writhed until his tortured body was ono
couvulsion. At length, by a mighty ef
fort, striving to accomplish ho knew not
what, ho hurled himself over tho bal
cony, at tho selfsame spot whenco tho
slavo had been flung by his own com
mand, and as ho fell tho clear waters of
thoWaag for n timo resisted tho impuro
burden and throw him back shrieking
and howling from their depths.
But ho sunk at last, and when his
parasites sought him on tho morrow
they found only tho couch on which ho
had lain and a few drops of blood to
hint that ho had died n death of vio
lence and vengeance.
They searched for him carefully on
all sides, and then, when thoy wcro
quite as.-mrul tli.it ho hud pacj. d nway
uovcr to return, whispers grow of tho
gray headed slavo and tho mysterious
raven until by degrees tho fato of tho
famous Btibor was fashioned into form,
and grow into a legend throughout tho
country, scaring tho village maiden in
her twilight walk a'ld t'io lonoshopherd
in his watch upon tho hills. Excb
