Not evnri lo (hid epeech. though receiv

of -moving him to thnir purpose -.at thnt

hini.n If, tilaced Ib'od .ind wawr at his side,
and in a way Ihtl was perhaps deeigni'd
to. show their opinion of his wonrterous
owera; Totas his arms woro pinioned
tightly behind his hack, it was evident he
conhl fet'd htmst'll only by mgic.

the step of tho t$av'ige the las! to depart
was yet rustling tnnuns' the weods at the

eager look around the apartment, which
waa, as before, duoly lighted by u fire on

the piccecditig night ; and, indued, noth
ing seetnud to nave been disturbed, except
the weapons, of which there had been ao
many when Kdith ccccupied the dun, but
of which not a single one now rt-muinod.
Over llif fire, the lon tresses thut de

Having roConnoitered every comer and

wits no lutkit'g savngo w itching his move,

strength of tho dinng by which his arms
were hound ; but without mnkiii" the
sliht-st impression on it. The tord
strone, the knots were securely tied :
nnd aft-r five or six minutes of stuilini;,
in. which hi made the most prodigious ef.
fnr's o tear it asunder, without hesitating
at the anguish it caused him, he was
nhlijed to give over his hopfs, fain could
he have, like Thn-npson's dtnmn ,in the

of despair. 'o '
Si' him fiillydoivn,'id gnaw liis bluer nail..
He summoned his.rtrengili, and renew
ed his efTmts ngain nnd niiu, but always

d if his inability 'o uid ll'titnelf, he leant
hark against a b'indle of skins, to couniel
wit1) his own thoughts what hope, if any,
vet remained- . '
"At thai ins ant. and while Ihe unutter

The whiti'og cease 1 ; the 'scratching

under which he had made bis way, ap
peared no bu ky demon, indeed, sum

creeping with s'ettlthy step, hut eyes glis

' I Caii'i Jiug thee, little Peter!' cried
