I Ma Dying.
Baias my pillow, husband, dearest
Faint and fainter comes my breath; .
And these shadows stealing slowly
Mu?t, I know, be those ci death.
Sit down close beside me, darling, .
Let me clasp your warm, strong hand
Yours that ever has suatainod me,
To tho borders of this land.
For your God and mine-our Father
Thence shall over lead me on;
Where, upop a throne eternal,
Bits His loved and only Son.
I've had visions and been dreaming
O'er tho past of joy and pain:
Year by year Tva wandered backward,
Till I wa? a child again
Dreaming of girlhood and the moment
When I stood your wife and bride;
How my heart thrilled love's triumph,
In that hour of woman's pride;
Dreaming of thee and all the earth chorda
Firmly twined about my heart
Ohl Ch? bitter, burning anguish,
Tfhmi Z drat knew we must paru
It has passed-and God has promised
All thy footsteps to attend;
He that s more than friend or brother,
Hell bo with you to tho end.
Thero's no shadow o'er tho portals
Leading to my heavenly homo
Christ has promised life immortal,
And 'tis He that bids me come.
When life's trials await around thee,
And it's ohilling billows swell,
Thou'lt thank Heaven that I'm spared
Thou'lt then feel that "all is well."
Bring our boys onto my bedside;
My last blessing lot thom keep
But they're sleeping-do not wako them;
They'll learn soon enough to weep.
Tell them often of their mother,
Kiss them for mo when thoy wake;
Lead them gently in lifo's pathway,
Love thom doubly for my sake.
Clasp my hand still closer, darling,
Thia tho last night of my lire;
For to-morrow I shall never
Answer, when you call me "wife."
Fare thee well, my noblo husband,
Faint not 'neath the chast'ning rod;
Throw your strong arm around our chil?
Keep them cloae to theo-and God.
THE GRAY MONK.
I had DO sooner cast nay eyes up
to the gallery, than I saw a tall thin
figuro, habited in the drees of the
Gray Monks, the large white cross
standing out very distinctly. He
held np a small book before his fae -,
"which he appeared to be reading.
There was no solemn tramp of bis
"sandalled shoon" upon the floor, as
b" so regularly paced it up and down;
a faint rustle of the gray garment
was all the sound I heard. He was
taller and more attenuated than any
of the brethren, and his noso and
chin were sharply defined. I gazed,
and discovered that I bad never yet
seen bis faee. Still I was not much
disturbed; perhaps he was some lay
brother, in punishment, or perform?
ing some vow, and I must not intrude
upon him. I felt disappointed. I
was not, it seemed, destined to visit
the mysterious gallery.
I was just turning to go away, and
bad oast my eyes once more where
the monk was walking, when lo! he
had vanished. Whither could he
have gone? I could distinctly see
the doors on eaoh side bf the gallery,
which were fast closed, and I felt
sure he had not descended the flight
of stairs, and passed by me. I rub?
bed my eyes to assure myself I had
not been dreaming, and looked np
again. Neither monk nor shadow of
one! I was fairly buttled, and though
a strangely cold sensation came over
me, I cleared the small flight of
stairs almost at one bound, and
found myself standing in the gallery.
At the same moment, I became con?
scious of some presence noar me
not visible, it is true-but I heard
the rustle of a garment. I felt
decidedly uncomfortable. Yet, where
was the monk? Had I really seen
him? Conld I credit the evidence of
icy own senses? It seemed as if
they were deceiving mo.
I began to think the whole a delu?
sion. My nerves were weak, per?
haps, after my illness; but this
seemed folly in ono who had never
before known what nerves meant; so
I prepared to commence my tour of
inspection. I tried to open one of
the doors-that on my right, as I
stood with my back to the stair-case.
There was a rusty key in the lock; it
turned easily, and I entered. Ima?
gine my disappointment at finding a
Slain, bare, white-washed apartment,
es ti tu te of furniture. I cast a hasty
glance round to assure myself no
monk was there, and closing the
door with an exclamation of disgust,
Proceeded to open tho other one.
'his was not so easy. For a time, it
resisted my most strenuous efforts.
At length, with a dull grating sound,
the key turned round in the lcok,
and I entered the room. It exactly
resembled the one I had just quitted,
only that thero was a low door just
opposite me, evidently leading to
cthot apartments, .vt this instant, A
became conscious of the same rust?
ling sound I had heard in the gallery,
and the shadow of a gray monk flitted
by me on tho wall. Advancing to the
low door of which I havo spoken, I
found it ajar, and I did not perceive
that it opened only from the outside,
with a spring-lock. It shut behind
me with a heavy clang, which must
have resounded through the mo?
nastery, for it was loua enough to
waken the "Soven Sleepers." At
the same time, a gust of wind drove
into my face, .for all the loop-holes,
which served for windows in tho
corridor, were exposed to the open
Heavens. I walked down the long
narrow passage at a slow pace, my
progresa boin g i ir. podo cl by blocks ?of
?tone and rubbish. At last, I came
to a door, to which' I administered a
vigorous puah, 'and' it burst open,
admitting me into a small turret
chamber, certainly not more than
twelve feet round. The light, as in
the passage, was admitted through
narrow slits, many feet above tue
ground-floor, so that it was bnt owl
light at best. The furniture of the
room consisted of an old worm-eaten
bedstead, a small wooden table, and
a rudo settle, upon which lay a
pewter plato. Evidently, many years
ago, this extraordinary apartment
had been used as a prison, perhaps,
a Vandois heretic, and remained, I
supposed, as it had beon left by the
Having examined this weird oham
ber, I prepared to return, a little
disannointWl nf. Hjo resTlt of my re?
searches, but congratulating myself
upon the contrast the more cheer?
ful refectory would present to the
gloomy cell. But when I came to
tho door at the end of the long pass?
age, I could not unfasten it! As I
have stated, it had closed heavily be?
hind me, und the spring-lock had
caught. I was immured in this
prison, as much confined and unabln
to stir ns my imaginary Wuldcusce!
Release till the evening was impro?
bable in the highest degree. The
brethren were in their separate cells,
so would not miss mo till a late hour,
even if then, and my good friend tho
Prior might not appear nt all, after
such a day of penance and mortifica?
tion. My dismay became so great at
the prospect of a night spent in this
dismal place, that I thumped with
both my fists on tho hard oaken
door, barred with clamps of irou; it
was quito impervious to my blows,
and I only succeeded iu bruising my
bauds. At length, worn out with
my futile efforts, I seated myself
upon tho stone stops, and foll into
an unpleasant train of thought. Pre?
sently I rose, and slowly retraced my
steps to the turret chamber, for it
was less cold there.
All this time, strange to say, I did
not think again of tho mysterious
monk; but as the honrs slowly wore
away-as it became dusk, and I grew
faint from want of food, my brain
became susceptible of all sorts of
illusions and phantasms. I began to
enter into the feeling of the prisouer
Bonivard, as he paced the length of
bia chain, round the stone pillar in
the rock-hewn dungeons of Chillon.
I dozed for a short time from sheer
weariness and inanition, and passed
through many a troubled dream,
until I awoke with a start, and in the
dusk, saw the tall figure of a gray
monk standing in the door-way. He
stretched forth a long thin finger in
the direction where I lay upon the
floor of the cell, and it seemed to me
that he gave a jeering laugh, though
I only saw his features move. It was
too muoh for my over-strainod
nerves. I gave, I suppose, a piercing
erv, and then relapsed into uncon?
sciousness. I remembered nothing
more until I was aroused by a human
hand clasping my own, and human
tears falling upou my cheek. At the
same time, I heard tones exclaiming,
"Oh! my son! my son! must you also
fall a victim in this accursed spot;
Does the blood of the murdered one
still cry out for vengeance? Oh! any
vengeance but this! Sparo yet the
living image of my beloved one!"
At theso violent, yet passionate
words, I became thoroughly aroused,
and looking up, found I was sup?
ported in the anns of the Prior, and
that my head was resting on hil
shoulder. His eyes were full of tears
os he met my glance, but he seemed
ashamed of his emotion, and said ir
calmer tones: "My instinct guided
me hither; I missed you wheu learnt
into .tho refectory to wish yon goot
night. I repaired to your dormitory
as I kuew you were to depart ou th?
morrow. I wished to say a few part
ing words to one that I may nevoi
meet again iu this world. You wen
not there; a suspicion flashed int<
my mind-whether an inspiration o:
not, I cannot tell-that you were ii
these chambers. I knew you to b(
enterprising, courageous and a littli
Here ho smiled.
"Had you known all about thesi
apartments, you would have requiret
more courage still. But now yoi
must havo some refreshment."
So sayiug, ho arose, and led ni<
gently from the cell. I was gla<
enough to leavo it, and enjoyed :
good meal iu tho more cheerful re
fectory. Before I loft the next day
I gleaned the following narrativ
from Father Paul, whose tendfcr car
of me had been unremitting durin
my whole sojourn in the monastery
and hud been redoubled, if that wor
possible, since my unlucky escapad
iu the turret chamber.
About 200 years ago, tho Monas
tery of tho Gray Monks was a ric
and flourishing demesne. Many c
the lands lying iu the valley belonge
to thom. All tho building, now s
rapidly hastening to decay, was the
in perfect repair. The monastet
was inhabited by forty or fifty monki
The rules of their order were stric
but, upon the whole, the brotbre
contrived to livo a conifortublo, ui
to say a jolly, life.
These were stormy times in Ei
rope, aud the Vaudois valleys we:
over-run by tho soldiers of the Pop
engaged iu their cruel work i
pillaging, murdering and extermino
ing tbe defenceless inhabitants,.who
bad dared to adopt principles of the
most damnable heresy. Kamora of
what was being done in the Pied
mou teso valloya, traveled bat slowly
to other parts of Switzerland, and to
the almost inaccessible fastnesses of
the Bernese Oberland. At length,
the news came, and different views
wero expressed by the brethren about
these deeds of violence and blood.
Abont this time, a poor wandering
traveler was found nearly frozen to
death, outside the walls of tho monas?
tery. It was the custom then, as
now, for the monks to extend a help?
ing hand to wayfarers of this kind.
The man was brought inside these
walls, from which he was destined
never again to depart alive. Every
restorative was applied to him; he
was kindly and carefully tended, till
li pal Hi nu ri ?trecgth returned. No
ono knew who ho was; he avoided
carefully giving auy information
about himself, but he appeared very
unwilling to leave such comfortable
At length, one of the monks, Bro?
ther Ambrose, discovered from a few
words dropped inadvertently, that
the stranger was a Vaudois pastor,
who hud thus far evaded the fury of
his persecutors, and had nearly
perished upon this Alpino height.
Brother Ambrose concealed tho tri?
umphant rage with which this disco?
very filled him, and, upon the poor
man (horror-stricken at the secret
being known) throwing himself upon
his mercy, tho perjured wretch pro?
mised not to betray him. Brother
Ambrose was a furious bigot. Hero
was au opportunity of finishing the
career, and that speedily, of this poor
hunted one. He had always longed
to be engaged in the glorious work
of despatching heretics.
Upon extorting all he conld out
of tho poor pastor by cajolery and
flattery, he went and repeated all to
the pious Father Jerome.
Fortunately for tho Vaudois, Father
Jerome was a merciful mau, and
though annoyed at harboring a here?
tic, he began to take an interest in
the poor wayfarer. He cast about
in his mind how to reconcile his duty
to his church, aud his desire to be
compassionate to the guest whom
he had protected. He desired tc
prevent the Vaudois going at large,
which was to insure his destruction,
while he punished his heresy ic
some way. After revolving the sub
ject a great deal in his miud, he hil
upon a plan which was forthwith pul
into execution, with tho consent o:
all the monks in full conclave, with,
indeed, the feigned consent of Bro
ther Ambrose. The Vaudois wai
incarcerated in the turret chamber o
the North tower, and forbidden t<
leave it upon any pretext whatever
The spring-door would effectually
preclude his escape, even if he fel
inclined to make the attempt; but hi
was not very likely to be anxious tc
leave so safe and quiet a retreat. It
that cell some weeks glided by. Tin
mouks took it by turus to wait upoi
him ; all were mercifully inclined to
ward him, excepting Brother Am
brose. He was the Judas of th
band, and this mild treatment of th
Vaudois pastor filled him with rag
aud bitter spite. Having no mean
of communicating with the perse?
cutors of tho Waldenses, he rcsolvei
to take the matter into his owi
hands, and to wreak his vengeauc
upon his unoffending victim.
One day, when it was his turn t
attend upon the prisoner, he niurdei
ed him iu his cell, then dragged tb
body down the long passage, wilie
hos been described, through tho liff
chamber, along tho gallery iuto th
garden, buried it in a deep grave f
tho bottom of tho fosse, then dry E
it is now, and where tbe remain
were discovered long years aftei
wards. No ono suspected him t
such murderous intent; tho deed wi
done at night, cleverly planned, aa
skillfully executed. He returned t
the empty cell, removed all traces <
Iiis guilt, excepting a few spots <
blood which still remain. He the
gave out that the Vaudois had c
caped, the spring-door having iniu
vertently been left open. The stol
was too unlikely to bo believed; bu
though Brother Ambrose was su
pected of foul play, his guilt coul
not be proved. Deeds of violenc
were more common in those day
than now, and no strict search or ii
quiry was m.ule into the matter.
At length the remorse of tl
wretched man became so deep, tin
ho told the wholo story to his futbc
confessor, imploring absolution fi
his crime, aud further requestir
him to divulgo the hateful secret I
tho Prior. This was done, and Br
thor Ambrose was sentenced to 1
confined in the came cell in which 1
bsd murdered the Vaudois. A teri
bio punishment surely, where tl
horrible memento of his crime won
forever rise up be?oro him. He soc
died, wasting away with anguish ai
remorse. That part of the mon?
tery has ever since been haunted 1
his uneasy spirit; but it only com
about the time of year the murd
was committed-namely, tho 30th
October. Brother Ambroso regal)
ly appears then, sometimes a day
two before and after that date, m
until tho monastery crumbles iu
dust, the spirit of the perjured trait
will be the curse of its inmates.
Such was the substance of t
story I heard from the lips of Fad
Paul. I again implored him to lea
tho hateful building with me, but he
'.'Nay, my son," he said; "here
must I end my days. I must bear
my portion of the curse. I must
still minister to sin-Btricken souls. It
is for the glory of God. Perhaps
some day He may remove the curse.
Aa for you, my son," tenderly laying
bis hand upon my head, "return to
the world I have left ; seek not mo?
nastic seclusion-it is not your voca?
tion. May Heaven's choicest bless?
ings attend you every Btep of the
way! And then some day," raising
his eyes devoutly to Heaven, while
an expression of rapture lighted up
his pale and wasted foatures to more
than earthly beauty-"yes! one day
we shall meet again, in tho presence,
of the Great Father Himself, the
miseries of this life over forever and
Wo then parted, each with an in?
describable emotion of pain-how
bitter upon the part of the Prior was
knowu only to himself. As for me,
though young and buoyant, "I sor?
rowed to think I should see his face
My memory pictures him now
through tho long vistn of twenty
seven years, ns ho stood watching mo
going down thc mountain, back into
tho world from which he wus cut ofT
-separated forever from all converse
with his kind, am. from all the sweet
amenities of social lifo. He stood
there at the monastery gates, his
deep bluo eyes straining their yearn
in? light after me, ns I slowly conti?
nued tho laborious descent; his arms
crossed over his breast, his long gray
garments streaking in tho wind. .
