ONLY A RELIC DlMM'D WITH TEARS.
Aye, only a rello dimm'd r-ith trim.
Tbe winter day is dyins.
And memories of youth's loving years
Come with the night wind's sighing.
A token of love of bygone days.
When life waa bright, unshaded;
The thought of one with the lover stays;
The golden dreams have faded.
In the mist of awlft advancing fears
The dreams of youth are hidikn ;
The relic is dimm'd with bitter tears
Tbe tears which come unbidden.
But the world is short time quickly flies
And heavy tears of sorrow
Will be forgotten 'neatb the skies
Of that bleat day to-morrow.

WHY HE MARRIED.
You cannot understand it, my friend? And
I can easily conceive that you cannot. You
think that I am going mad? Perhaps I may
be, a little, but not for tbe reasons that you
Yes, I am about to marry.
And yet my ideas and convictions have not
changed. I consider the legal union an ab
surdity. I am convinced that eight mar
riages in ten are failures. Less than ever do
I feel myself capable of faithfully loving one
woman I shall always love all tbe others
I would have a thousand lips, a thousand
arms, that 1 might embrace at once an army
of the charming creatures.
And yet 1 am about to marry.
I may add that I have but a slight ac
quaintance with my wife of to-morrow. I
know that she is not displeasing to me, and
that is sufficient for my purpose.
She is petite, Monde and plump. But next
week I shall long for a woman who is tall,
dark and thin.
She is not rich. Sim does not belong to a
family rank. She is one of those girls to be
found by the gross in tbe middle classes, good
girls to marry, with neither virtues nor
I'eople say of her; "Miss So-and-So is very
pretty." They will say of her to-morrow.
"She is extremely pretty, that Mrs. Blaukf
Why, then, do I maiTy, you ask I
I scarcely dare avow to you the strange
and incredible reason which impels me to this
I marry that I may not be alone.
I know not how to say it, how to make my
self understood. You would pity me and de
spise me, so deplorable is ray state of mind.
I do not want to he alone at night. I want
to f. 1 a human being near me, beside me. a
being which can- speak, say something, no
matter w hat.
Some one whom I can waken from slumber
and question abruptly any foolish question
only to hear a voice, to feel that my rooms
are inhabited, to feel a consciousness on the
alert, a reason at work, to see on suddenly
lighting my candle, a human form at my
side because liecause it is hard to ac
knowledge it because, alone, 1 am afraid.
Oh! you do not yet comprehend roe.
I am not afraid of danger. If a burglar
entered my room, I would kill him without a
tremor. I am not afraid of ghosts. I do not
believe in the supernatural I am not afraid
of the dead. I believe in the total annihila
tion of every being which disappears.
Well, I am afraid of myself! I am afraid
of fear, afraid of my warring intellect, afraid
of this horrible sensation of incomprehensible
terror. Laugh, if you will. It is frightful,
incurable. I am afraid of tbe walls, of the
furniture, of the familiar objects which be
come instinct for me with a sort of animal
life. I am afraid, above all, of the horrible
agitation of my thoughts, of my senses, which
escape me in confusion, scattered by my an
guish, mysterious and indefinable. -
I xparience, first, a vague inquietude
which penetrates to my very soul and causes
a shudder to run through me. I look around
me. Nothing) And I desire that there
should be something. What! Something
comprehensible 1 For I am afraid solely be
cause I cannot comprehend my fear.
I speak. I am afraid of ray voice, I walk.
I am afraid of the unknown behind the door,
behind the curtains, in the closet, under the
bed. And yet I know that there is nothing.
I turn suddenly, afraid of what is behind
me though there is nothing there, and I
know it I grow agitated, I feel my terror
increase, and I lock myself in my chamber
and plunge into bed and hide under the cover
erings, and, cowering there, rolled up like a
ball, I close my eyes in desperation, and re
main thus for an endless time, knowing that
my candle, left burning on my night table,
ought to be put out and I dare not do it
Is it not frightful to be thus?
Formerly, I experienced nothing of all that
I entered calmly. I went and came in my
rooms, with nothing to disturb the serenity
of my mind. If any one had told me then
what a malady of fear incredible, foolish
and terrible would on day possess me, I
should have laughed heartily. I opened the
doors in tbe dark with assurance. I undressed
slowly, without pushing the bolts, and I never
arose In the middle of the night to make sure
that the doors and windows were securely
It began last year in a singular manner. It
was on a damp autumn night
It was dreary everywhere. The wet side
walks glistened. A moist warmth, of the sort
which freeses you with sudden cbills an op
preaalTe warmth of fine, impalpable rain en
veloped the street and seemed to lessen and
obscure the flame of the gas. I walked slow
1t, repeating to myself as I went: "I shall
find no one to talk to."
For blocks and blocks I searched the cafes.
The tired looking men sitting at the tables
appeared too listless to finish their repasta.
I wandered about thus for some time, and
toward midnight started homeward. I was
calm but very tired.
My concierge, who retires before 11 o'clock.
opened the door for me at once, contrary to
bis usual habit I thought: "Doubtless an
other lodger has just gone up."
On going out I always double lock my door.
I found it simply latched, a fact which struck
me. I supposed letters had been sent up
during the evening. I entered. The fire was
still burning and faintly illumined the apart
ment I took a candle, intending to light it
at tbe fire, when, turning my eyes in that
direction, I saw some one sitting in the arm
chair, with feet to the fire and back toward
I was not afraid. Oh, no, not the least in
the world. Probably it was one of my friends
who had called to see me. The concierge, in
formed by me on my going out, bad told him
I would return, and given him a pass key.
And instantly the circumstances of my re
turn recurred to my mind the cord pulled
without delay the door on tbe latch.
My friend had fallen asleep while waiting
I saw him distinctly; an arm hanging
down on the right, his feet crowed one over
the other, his head leaning over a little to
the left side of the chair unmistakable evi
dence of slumber.
"Who is itr I asked myself.
It was Impossible to see clearly in tbe dim
light I reached out my hand to touch him
on the ehouldert I encountered the
wood of the chair I There was no longer any
one there. The seat was empty
Merciful heaven, what a shock 1 1
recoiled at first aa if before some terrible
Sanger. Then I turned suddenly, feeling
that some one was behind me.
But I am a man of considerable nerve, and
I presently came to my senses. I thought:
"I have had an hallucination, that is all"
I had had a a hallucination that was an
incontestable fact But my mind had re
mained clear all the timo, acting regularly
and logically. There was then no trouble
with the brain. Tbe eyes alone had been de
ceived tbe eyes bad had a vision, one of
those visions which lead the simple to believe
in miracles. There was a nervous' affection
of the optical organs, nothing mora. A alight
I lit my candle, T noticed, on bending
toward the firs, that I was trembling, andj
raised myself with a sfarl, ai Tf someTone "Lad
touched me from behind.
Assuredly, I was far from tranquil.
I walked about, I spoke aloud. I sang In a
Then I double locked my chamber door and
felt somewhat reassured. At least no one
could enter. t
I sat down and reflected over my adventure
a long time. Finally, I got into bed and put
out the light
For a time all went well. I was lying
quietly on my back. Then I felt a desire to
look around the room, and turned over on
The fire had died down, only two or three
red brands remaining, just brightening the
feet of the arm chair, and 1 thought I again
saw the man sitting there!
I hastily struck a match. I had deceived
myself. 1 no longer saw anything. How
ever, 1 arose and concealed the chair behind
the lied. Then I aain darkened the room
and endeavored to sleep.
I hail not lo. t consciousness for more than
five minutes before I saw, in a dream, and
plainly as the reality, the1 whole scene of the
evening over again. I awoke iu consterna
tion, and, having made a light, remained sit
ting on the bed without even daring to try to
Twice, however, slumber overcame me in
spite of myself, ami twice again I saw the
same thing. I thought I must be going mad.
When the day appeared I felt that I was
cured, and slept soundly until noon.
It was over well over. I had had a fever,
a nightmare, I know not what I bad been ill.
But I considered that I had acted very fool
ishly. I was very gay all that day. I dined in a
restaurant; I went to the theatre. Finally 1
started for home; but on approaching the
bouse a feeling of uneasiness took possession
of ine. I was afraid of seeing him again
not afraid of him, not afraid of his presence,
in which I did not believe, but afraid of a re
newed trouble of my eyes, afraid of the hal
lucination. For more than an hour I wandered aim
lessly up and down the streets; then, ashamed
of my weakness, finally entered the house, I
was breathing so hard that 1 could with diffi
culty mount tbe stairs. I halted again on the
landing outside uiy door, for more than ten
minutes. Then, in a burst of courage, I un
locked the door and dashed forward, candle
in hand, pushed the half open door with my
foot and cast a startled glance toward the
fireplace. 1 saw nothing.
W hat a relief ! What joy 1 What a deliv
erance! I weut and came aliout the rooms
with a jaunty air. But I did not feel reas
sured. I turned with sudden starts; the
shadow in the corners disquieted me.
I slept ill, constantly wakened by imagin
ary noises. But 1 did not see him. No, It
Since that day I am afraid alone at night
I feel it there, near me, alout me the vision.
It has never appeared to me again. And
what does it matter, moreover, since I do not
believe in it, since I know that it is nothing!
It harasses me, though, for I think of it
unceasingly. A hand hanging down on tbe
right, the head leaning ta.the loft, like that
of a man asleep. 'Enough, in God's
name! I will think of it no longerl But
what is the meaning of this obsession? Why
He haunts me it is folly, but so it is. Whof
He! I know that be does not exist; that is
nothing ! He exists only in my apprehension,
in my fear, in my anguish!
But I may reason w ith myself, upbraid my
self, in vain. a I can no longer remain at home
alone, for he is there. I shall never see him
again, 1 know. He will not show himself
again; that is ended.
But he is there all the same, iu my thoughts.
He remains invisible; that does not prevent
his being there.
He is behind the doors, in the closets, un
der the bed, in everv obscure corner, in every
shadow. If I tunfhe doors, if I open the
closets if I throw the light under the bed, if
I illumine tbe corners, the shadows, he is no
longer there; but, then, I feel that he is be
hind me, I turn, certain, however, that I
shall not see him, that I shall never see him
again. He is none tbe less behind me still.
It is foolish, but it is atrocious. What
would you? I can do nothing.
But if there were two of us, I feel, yes 1
feel certain that he would no longer be there.
For he is there because I am alone solely
because I am alone! Translated for The Ar
