lr ?j- a chilis night, and the fire in the widow's parlor
? had burnt low. Her strange companion placed her in a chair,
and stooping down before the half-extinguished ashes, raked
iii<v?i together and fanned them with his bat. From time to
. time he glanced at her over Iii- shoulder, as though to assure
; himself of her remaining quiet and making no effort to de
j part; and that done, busied himself about the lire again.
It was not without reason that he took those pains, for his
dres3 was dank and drenched with wet, his jaws nitiied with
criid, :n d he -hU.-re 1 from head to foot. It bad rained hard
during the previous night and for some hours in the morning,
! tor. sine noon it had been tine. Wheresoever he had passed
the hours of darkness, his condition siifBcicntly Tsetokcned
that many of them had been spent beneath the open sky.
Besmeared with mire : his saturated clothes clinging with a
damp embrace about his limbs: i:is beard unshaven, his face
u.v.va-hed. his meagre cheeks worn into deep hollows.?a
more miserable wretch could hardly be. than this man who
now cowered (town upon the widow's hearth, and watched
the struggling flame with bloodshot eyes.
She had covered her face with her hands, fearing, as it
seemed, to look towards him. So they remained for some
short time in silence. Glancing round asain. be asked at
j '? Is this your house ?"
?? It i-. Why. ir> the name of Heaven, do you darken it'"
" Give me meat and drink." he answered sullenly, " or
I liare do more than that. The very marrow in my bones
is cold, w:th wet and bunjer. I must have warmth and
food, and I will have them here."
?? You were t!.<- robber in the Chi.:", el! road."
- I was."
l; And nearly a murderer then."
?? The will was not wanting. There was one came upon
me and raised the hue-and-ccy, that it would have gone h.ir.l
with but for his nimblcnes*. I made a thrust nr him."
" Von thrust your .word at him .'" cried the widow. " Oh
God, you ie-ar 111 i ~ man! you hear and saw!"
He looked at her. as. with her head thrown hack, and her
hands tijht clenched together, she uttered these words in an
agony of appeal. Then, start* ng to his feet as she had dune,
he advanced towards her.
"Bewnre!" she cried in a suppressed voice, whose firm?
ness -topped him midway. " Do not so much u> touch nie
with a finger, or you are lost ; body and soul, you are lost."
?? i!c;r me," he replied, menacing her with his hand. " I,
that in the form of n man live the life of a hunted boast;
that in the body am u spirit, a ghost upon the earth, a thing
from which all creatures shrink, save those curst beings of
another v. .-Id. who will not leave me;?I am, in my despe?
ration of this ni;!it. past all fear but that of the hell in which
I exist from day to day. Give the alarm, cry out, refuse to
skelter Kit?. I will net hurt you. But I will not be taken
alive; and si* surely as ?ou threaten me above your breath,
I fall a dead man on this floor. The blood with which 1
sprinkle it, be on yon and yours, in die name of the Evil
Spirit that tempts men to tle-ir ruin !"
As ho spoke, lie took a pistol from his breast, and firmly
clutched it in his hand.
" Remove this man from me. good Heaven !" cried the
widow. '? lu thy rrruce and mercy, give him one minute*,
penitence, and strike him dead !"
?? It in- im such purpose," he said, confronting tier. ?? It

till then, began to drag it out, piece by piece, and eat it with
the utmost relish.

A long in:d profound silence ensued, broken only by some
change of position on the part of Baraaby, whose eyes were
still widcopen and intently fixed upon the tire; or by an ef?
fort of recollection on the part of Grip, who would cry in a
low voice from time to time. " Polly put the bet?" and

After a long interval, Barnaby's breathing grew more deep
anil regular, and his eyes more closed. But even then the
unquiet spirit of the raven interposed. " l'olly put the kct?"
cried Grip, and his master was brand nvvake again.
At length he slept soundly, and the bird with his bill sunk
upon his breast, his breast itself puffed out into a comforta?
ble alderman-like form, and his bright eve growing smaller
and .-mailer, really seemed to be subsiding into a state of re?
pose. Now and then he muttered in a sepulchral voice,

diunken man than a reflecting raven.

They stood rooted to the ground, as though it had been a
voice from the grave.
But even this tailed to awaken the sleeper. He turned
over toward the Sre, his ana fell to the ground, and his head
drooped heavily upon it. The widow und her unwelcome
.-isiter gazed at I m and at each other for a moment, and
then she motioned him Loward the door.
?'Stay," he whispered. " You teach your son well."
" I liave taught him nothing that you beard to-night. De?
part instantly, or i will rouse him."
'? Vou are free to do so. Shall / rouse himT"
" You dare not do that."
" 1 dare do any thing. I have told you. He knows mo
well, it seems. At least I will know him."
"Would you kill him in his sleep?" cried the widow,
throwing herself between them.
" Woman," tie returned between his teeth, as he motioned
her aside, " I would see htm nearer, and I will. If you wont
one of us to kill the other, wake him."
With that he advanced, and bending down over the pros?
trate form, softly "irnod hack the head and looked into the
face. The light of the fire was upon it, and its every linea?
ment was revealed distinctly, lie contemplated it for a brief
space, arid hastily uprose.
"Observe,'' he whispered in the widow's oar: " In him,
of whose existence I was ignorant until to-night. I have you
in my power. B ? careful how you use me. I am destitute
und starving, ar.d a wanderer upon the eaitb. I may tiske a

He pointed, as he left her, t? the slumbering form, and
stealthily withdrawing, made his way into the street. She
fell on her knees beside the sleeper, and remained like one
stricken into stone, until the tears which fear had frozen so
long, came tenderly to her relief.
