A woman answereu my iciiow irav- i

"He has not come in yet."
I fat down on a wooden bench beside
the fire, and ato a few tnouthfula of
"I should like to retire as soon as pos-
rible," I said, for my weariness waa ex
cessive. -"Ccrtainl'." The woman started up
"Where are yon going wru",u"'

"Put him in Isaac's room."
"It's the most comfortable."
"I tell you 110."
"But here I interrupted the whispered
"I am not particular I don't care
where yon put me, only make baste."
Sol was conducted up Usep ladder
tiiat stood in tlie corner .tf tlm room,
into an apartment ceiled with eloping
beams and ventilated by oce small win
dow, where a oot bedstead, crowdod
close against the "board partition, and a
pine table with two or three chairs,
formed the sole attempts at furniture.
T-he woman tat tho light an old 311

"Jtsry tiling more I can get yon, sir?"
Xothing, thank you."
"I hope you will Bleep well, sir. When

"At 4 o'clock in the morning, if yon
please. I mutt walk over to It sta

"I'll be sure to call yon, sir."
She withdrew, leaving me alone iu
the gloomy little apartment. I rsat down
.and looked aronnd me with no very
"I will eit down and write to Alice,'
I thought; "that will boothe my nerve
and quiet me perhaps." , .
I descended the ladder; the fire stul
glowed redly in tho hearth lxmeath ; my
companion and the woman Kit boide it
talking in a low tone, nud a third person
sat at the table eating; a rhort, stout,
villauious-lookiiig man, in u red fiuiiuel
shirt aud muddy trousers.
1 asked for writing materials and re
turned lo my room to write lo my wife.
"My darling Alice"
I paused nud laid down my pen as 1
concluded the words, half smiling t
think what she would Kty could tin
.know of my fctrange quarters.
Not till bolh sheets v ere covered did
J lay ofcide my pen and piejiare for
.slumber. As I "folded my paper I hap
pened lo glance toward the conch.
Was it the gleam of a human eye ob
serving me through the board partition
or was it my own fancy? There was a
crack there, but only blank darkness
beyond, yet I could have sworn that
Bemclhing had sjmrkled balehilly at me.
I took out my watch it was 1 oclock.
It was scarcely worth while for me to
undress for three hours' sleep. I would
lie down in niy clothes mid snatch what
.lumber I could. So, placing my valise
.-t the head of my bed, and barrimding
'Aha lockless door witii two chairs, I ex
tinguished tho light aud laid down.
At first I was very wakeful, but gradu
ally n soft drowsiness seemed to steal
over me like n misty mantle, until, nil
of a sudden, a startling, electric thrill
coursed through tny veins, and I sat up
sidled nml trembling.
A luminons softness nemedtoglow
through tlie room no light of the moon
or stirs was ever so penetrating nnd by
the little window I saw Alice, my wife,
