Tlio time ut wliicli we open our story is
mid-winter, and towards tlio close of the
heventt't'iitli century, ltusbin hud pushed
through the long and bitter ordeal of na
tional Night. The Tartar yoke had been
worn till the very hones of the nation were
galled; and when tins was thrown oil' civ
il disseuhions und insurrections commenced.
The Poles and Swedes plundered the coun
try, and amid general tumult and confusion
Mwne half dozen men were clamoring for
the throne. At ienth a few patriotic citi
zens. i)led''inr cveythinjr they held dear ou
earth to the cause ot freedom from this
nurse of anarchy, ami headed by a noble

made a bold stand to save the country.
Moscow was retaken, and Michael Uoman
nlf was chosen Czar; and this illustrious
family still occupies the imperial throne.
And now the day of Russian greatness
dawned; but the sun was not fairly up
the broad light opened not upon the empire
until Peter came to the throne.
In tlio department of the Sloboda the
Miburbs of Moscow and very near the river
Moskwa, stood an humble cot, the exterior
of which betrayed a neatuess of arrange
ment and show of taste that more than
nude up for its smallness of size. Nor
was it so very small iu' fact, but ouly in
eontrast; for near at hand about it stood
many large, shabby, dirty-looking struct
ures that overlooked the prim cot, as bleak
mountains may look down upon a verdant
hill. Ami within, this cot was as neat as
without. The two apartments in front, one
f which was only used in winter, were lur-
! uished not only with neatness, but with a
fair chow of ornament and luxury. Back
I of these were a large cooking and dhiing
! 10.1m, and two small bedrooms; and back
! s'ill from these was an artisan's shop, ami
! other out-buildings. This shop was de
j voted to the manUfactuture of firearms,

was a young man, not over three-and-twen
ty,und possessed a frame of more than ordi
nary symmetry and musculer development.
Me was not large not above medium si.e
but a single- idanee at the swelling chest,
the broad shoulders, and the sinewy ridges
ot the bare arms, told at once that he was
master of great physical power. His fea
tures were regular, yet strongly marked,
und eminently handsome; his brow, which
was full and high, was covered by the light
bioivn curls that waved over it; while his
eyes, which were of a bright, bn!'iant..deep
gray in color, lent a cast of genius to the in
tellect of the brow. His name was Panic
.Novel. His father had been killed in the
then late war with the Turks, and the son,
ieftving his mother with a sufficiency of
KiMcnuncc, went to Spain soon after the be
reavement. There' he found work in the
mot noted armories; and now, well versed
jtj the trade, he had returned to his native
ciry to follow his calling, and support his
Xearby stood a boy Paul Peepon a
bright, intelligent lad, some r'.tteen years of
ac, who had bouud himself to the gun
maker for the purpose of learning the art.
. J lis hair and his eyes were darker than liin
master's, mid it' he possessed not much
sound intellect, he did surely possessan un
wonted degree of keen, ipiick wit, and a
principle of unswerving integrity.
Tiie sun had been some time below the
horizon, and the only light of any conse
quence that made things partially visible
within the shop came from the dull blaze of
the coals on the forire. as Paul ever and
anon bore down upon the brake that moved
the bellows. Suddenly Kuric started back
Irom the forge as his mind broke from tlio
deep reverie into which he had fallen, and
having bado.his boy to see that matters were
;tll properly disposed for the night, he turn
ed towards the door, and was soon in the
kitchen, where his mother had supper all
prepared and set out.
Claudia Nevel was a noble-looking wo
man, and the light of her still handsome
countenance was never brighter than when
gazing upon her boy. She hud seeu the
snows of lifty winters, and if they had left
some silver upon her head, and some age
marks upon her face, the sunshine of as
many summers had left her with a thank
ful, loving heart, and a prayerful, hopeful
"It is snowing o;
itin, faster than ever,"
lie to''k his seat ut the
''Ah,'' returned Kuric: resting his knile a
few moments while he bent his car to listen
to the voice of the storm, "1 hail hoped
'twould snow no more for the present. The
snow is deep enough now. And how it
"Never mind,"' spoke the dame, in a
trustlul, easy tone, "it must storm when it
listeth, und we can only thank Ootl that we
have shelter, and pray for those that have
"Amen 1" responded Kuric, fervently.
After this the trio remained some min
utes silent, seeming to be busy in listening
to the storm-notes that came pealing liut
the cot. The wind was high, and the snow
now came dashing upon the windows with
a dreary, melancholy sound. The meal was
at length eaten, and the table set 'back, and
shortly afterwards Paul retired to his bed.
It wan UiH wont to retire early, for lit rose
betimes to build the lircs and prepare for
the labors of the day.
Kuric drew his (hair close up to the lire
place, and leaning against the jam he low
ed his head and pondered again. This had
become a habit with him of late. Some
times he would sit thus during a wholn
hour without apeaking, or even moving,
and his mother did not interrupt him, as
alio supposed he might be solving some
mechanical problem that had arisen to
bother him. Hut these fits of thought hail
become too freipieut, Joo lengthy, and too
moody, for such a hypothesis, and the good
woman was forced to believe that they were
caused by somuthiug more remote than the
busineau of the forge or this lathe. The
youth now gat with his brow resting upon
hit hand, and his eyes bent upon the
hearth. For half an hour he had not mov.
ed, and Ida face wore an anxious, troubled
"Hurtc, my son," poke the mother, at
length, in a low, kind tone, "what it it
that occupici your thought much?"
The young man started and turned his
guzo uiion his mother.
"l)ii you speak to me, mother';" he
asked, after having recalled his mind to
things about him.
"Ves, my boy," she said. "I did speak
to you. 1 asked you what it was that oc
cupied your thoughts;"
As she' spoko thus she moved her seat
close to where Kuric sat, and placed her
hand upon his arm.
"Tell me, my boy," she added, in a low,
persuasive tone, "what it is that dwells
thus upon your mind."
Kuric reached out ami took his mother's
hand, and having gazed for some moments
into her face, he said :
"1 was thinking aud I have been think

"What, my dear boy what ot her have

also thiil she is good at least, so 1 think."
"Then what but love could move me with

of my heart and soul."
"Alas, my Kuric, she will never dare love

replied, liis eyes burning deeply, and hi
open brow Hushing. "l)id 1 not know she
Jovcd me, be sure J would never have nl
lowed my thoughts such rang''. We were
children together, and even then we loved.
Fate has dealt differently by us in the
years that have passed since those child
hood times; .but yet 1 am sure her love for
me is not changed, save as increasing age
must change all the emotions of our na
tures into deeper, stronger lights mid
"Hut think, my boy : You, a mere artisan ;
she, the offspring of nobility and the ward
of a duke astern, cold, proud aristocrat,
who looks upon people of our station only
as harsh masters look upon their beasts uf
burden. I fear you will tind little ei-e but
misery in such a course ot thought."
"At least, my mother, I will see Rosalind;
and if she loves me as I love hee. and if she
would accept my hand"
"Hush, my boy. Do not clu ri-h such
hopes. Why should she mate with tln-c
when the richest nobles of the land would
kneel lor ner nann;
"Hold," cried Kuric. starting to his f.-et
his handsome face flushed, and his bright
eye buvnnin'. "Speak not thus at lea-t,
not now. 1 (latter not myself, but claim a
soul as pure, and a heart as r.oble, as any
man in the land. My mind is :t clear; iny
hopes are as high; my ambition u true to
real greatness, and my will as (inn, us any
of them. If Iiistlind seeks the love of a
true heart, and the protection of stout arms
and determined success, then 1 fear not to
place myself by the side of any suitor in
the laud, lint if she seeks immediate
wealth, and theglitter for some hiiih. sound
ing title, then ah, 1 know she dues not.
IJut let it pass now; 1 will see her."
Claudia would not oppose the wishes f
her son, and she said no more upon the sub
ject. For a while nothing further was sai-i,
until Kuric remarked upon the increasing
force of the storm.
"Hark!" exclaimed his mother, buiding
her car ina listening Hftiiti le. -Was that
a knock upon our door?"
"Surely no one is out ou such a night
that could seek shelter here," continued
Kuric, "You must have"
The youth did not finish his sentence,
for at that moment the knock fame so loud
that it was not to be mistaken. The youth
caught up the candle and ha-tencd to the
door. He opened it, but the bhisi came
roaring in, whirling a cloud of snow into
Kuric's face, and extinguishing the light at
"Is there any one here;" the gunmak r
asked, bowing his head and shielding his
eyes from the driving snow with one hand.
"Yes," returned a voice from the Stygian
darkness. "In Heaven's name let me in,
or I shall perish."
"Then follow quickly," said Kuric. "Here,
give me your hand. There now conn.'."
The youth found the thickly-gloved
hand-gloved with the softcstfur and
having "led the invisible applicant into the
hall, he closed the door, and then led the
way into the kitchen. As soon as the candle
was re-lighted Kuric turned and gazed up. in
the new-comer. He was a monk and hab
ited something like one of the Klack Monks
of St. Michael. He was of medium height
and possessed a rotundity of person which
was comical to behold, lie was fat and
unwieldy, mid waddled about with laugha
ble steps. His huge, black robe, w hich
reached from bis chin to his toes, was se
cured about the waiVl with a sash if the
some color, and the snow, which lay upon
his shoulders and back, presented a striking
contrast, Kuric brushed away the snow
with liis own hand, and having taken his
visitor's thick fur bonnet, the latter took a
scat near the lire.
Picforc a n ord was spoken, the youthful
host carefully examined his guest's leatures;
and the latter seemed equally desirous of
discovering what manner of people he had
fallen in with. The monk's face was n p
culiurnnr. The features were very dark
an. I prominent, ami almost angular in their
btmngly. marked outlines. His brow was
very fair in mental development, and his
eyes were dark and brilliant. The slight
circle of hair that escaped from beneath the
tight skull-cap which he retained upon his
head, was somewhat tinged with silver,
thoughhis face did not betray such advanced
age as tins silver hair would seem to indi
cate. "You have been caught in a severe storm,
good father." said the youth, after his guest
had somewhat recovered from the effects ot
"Aye that have 1, my son," the monk
returned, in a deep, rumbling tone. "1 left
the Kremlin this morning, little thinking of
such a change. This storm has commenced
since I started on my return. About hall a
mile from here, my liorse. got foundered in
the snow, and I left him with an honest
peasant, and then started to make the rest
of my way on foot; but I reckoned wildly.
The driving storm blinded me, and the
piling driftH swallowed mo up at every doz
en steps. My body is not very well adapted
to such work. Ha, ha, liu! But I miwymir
light, and determined to seek shelter here
for the night. Hy St. Michael, but this is a
moBt nevere storm ! yet you are comfortable
N"Aye, father, wo try to be comfortable,"
said Kuric "My mother co.ilj hardly sur
vive a winter in sonio ot the dwellings
which stand hereabouts."
Th" monk made no ni;fcwcr to this save a
sort of commendatory r.od; and shortly af
terwards the youth asked ;
"Do you 'be!oi:g here in the city, good
'Aye M present 1 do," the monk replied.
And then with a smile, he added : "j sup
pose you would lik'i to know whom you
have thus receive 1? My amino is Vuldnn'r,
and my home is wherever I may chance to
be on God's heritage. At present I am re
siding here in Moscow. Tlierecould you
ask me to be more frank !"
Kuric smiled, but he made no direct re
ply. He na too deeply interested in the
face of the monk to enter with ui-ich eager-
ness into conversation. At lengtn tin;
guest usked if he could be accomuodatcd
with some sbvping place, and beinganswer
ed in the ailirmatlve, the y.ni'h lighted an
other cai.dle and conducted him to a chain
oer which was located directly over the
kivhui. aiid which was very well warmed
by nieai.s .,(' several iron tubes that con
nected wii.i tin.1 ('.ln.'.ee below.
"Mother," said Kuric, fts soon r.s he bail
returned to the kitchen, "who is t!;..t i.iant"
How should I know?"
"IJut h iv.! you never seen him before!"
Kuric asked, in an earnest, eager tone.

that went leaping through his mind I.e.
couhi gather no connected thoughts.
After the njonk had gone Kuric returned
to his bench and resumed "his work. He
asked liis boy if he had ever seen the
strange man before, but Paul ouly shook
his head, and answered dubiously.
"What do you mean;" the gunniaker as
ked, looking the boy in the face. "Do you
think you have seen him before';"
"I cannot tell, my master. I may have
seen him before, and I may not. Kut sure
ly you would not suppose that n;y memory
w ould serve you better than your own."
Kuric was not fully assured by this an
swer. Ho gazed into Paul's face, and ho
fancied he detected some show of intelli
gence there which had not been spoken.
Kut ho .resolved to ask no more questions at
present. He had asked enough, he thought,
upon such a subject, and he made up his
mind to bother himself no more about it,
feeling sure that if his boy knew .lnything
which would be for his master's interest to
know it would be communicated in due
season. So lie applied himself anew to his
work, and at noon the pistols wire finished.
Towards the middle of the afternoon,
just as Kuric liad finished tempering some
parts of a gun-lock, the back door of Ids
shop was opened and two men entered.
They were young men, dress' d in costly
furs, and both of tliem stout and good-looking.
The gunmaker recognized them ns
the Count Conrad DamonoiTund his friend
"I think I speak with Kuric Ncvel," said
the count, moving forward.
"You do." returned Ruric, not at all sur
prised by the visit, since people of all
classes were in tho habit of calling at his
place to order onus.
Tho count turned a shade paler than be
fore- and his nether lip trembled; but Kuric
thought that might bo tho result of coming
from the cold into a warm atmosphere.
However, ho was soon undeceived, for the
coi.nt'.s next remark was significant.
"You are acquainted with the Lady Kosa
iind Valdai ?"
'T am," answered Kuric, now beginning
"Wll, sir," resumed DamonolT, with
iiiucli haughtiness, perhaps my business can
be quickly and satisfactorily settled. It is
my desire to make the Lady Kosalind my
Kuric Novel started at these words, and
he clasped his hands to hide their tremulous
ncs. Hut ho was not long debating upon
"And why have you come to me with
this information, sir?" he asked.
"You should know that already. Do
you not love the lady ?"
"Sir Count, you ask nv.; a strange ques
tion. What right have you to question me
upon such a theme?"
t "Tho right that every man has to pave
the way for his own right," replied Painon
off, sharply. "Hut if you choose not to an
swer, let it pass. 1 know you do love the
laily. And now I ask yo :to renounce all
claims to her band."
"Sir Count, your tongue runs into strange
i.'iooJsof speech. I renounce all claims to
Kosaland Valdai's hand' Wtis't so yon
"Aye, sir precisely so."
"Peri. ap you will in To: m me what claims
I may have in that quarter." Kuric replied,
with s. line t rem u.'ousiicss in hist me, for the
very subject was one that moved him deeply.
" Kur ic Neve, you shall not say that 1
did not make mvsclf fully understood, and
hence 1 will explain." The count spoke
