first incitement to the decree which irave freedom

N. .rUndin Ib7l to pay homage to the memory of
Scott at the Edinburgh Centenary Banquet. ]
For a long time I tried in vain to sleep,
and kept testing from tide to side. " The
devil take all Una nonßense of tipping t-.
--blea," I saiii to myself, "it certainly shakes
the nerves." At length, however, drowei
ness began to get the upper hand.
Suddenly it seemed to me that a harp
string twaDijed feebly in ir.y chamber. I
lifted my head. The moon was low in the
sky and shone full in my face ; its light
lay like a chalk mark on the carpet. The
strange sound waa distinctly repeated. I
raißed myself on my elbow ; my heart beat
forcibly. A miuuti passed so — another —
then in the distance a took crowed, and a
second answered him from yet further.
My luad fell back nn the pillow. "It
oomes even to that," I thought, "my ears
are fairly ringing."
In a moment more I was asleep, or
seemed to myself to bo sleeping. I had a
singular dream. I thought that I was in
my chamber in my own bed, wide awak».
Suddenly I hoar the noise again. I turn.
The moonbeam on the floor begin 3to
waver, to ris-, to taUe shape, stands mo
tionless before me like the white figure of
a womin, transparent as mist.
" Who are you f I ask, tryiug to retain
my composure.
A voioe resembling the soughing of the
wind among the tree-top? answers me. "It
is I— I — 1. I am come for you."
" For me ? Hut who are you ?''
"Come at nightfall to the old oak tree
at the edge of the wood, I will be there."
I wish to see more closely the features of
this mysterious boing ; an involuntary cold
shudder runs through me. I find myself
not lying, bat in a sitting posture on my
bed, and where tho appearance of the
figure was there is a long pale moon-streak
on the fl jor.
I do not know hnw the next day passed.
I tried, I rcnv mber, to read and to work s
little, but cnuld accomplish nothing. Night
fell; my heart I, eat as if I had been ex
pe^tin^ some one. I went to bed and
turn d my face to the wall.
'• Why did you not come ?" TLe whis
per w;i* plainly audible in t'-ie chamber.
Hastily 1 turned my head.
Tm.ro was the form again ; the mysteri
ous being with fixed oyeg in its rigid coun
tenance and an < xjin-s- ion of woe.
" Come I" I heard faintly.
" I will come." I answered with uncon
trollable terror. Tue shape wavered, sank
into itself like a puff of smoke, and once
more it was only the wan moonlight that
lay on the smooth floor.
I passed tho day in excitement. At tea
I nearly emptied a bottlo of wine, and for
a moment stooi hesitating at the open
dour, but almost immediately turned back
and threw myself upon my conch. The
blood rushed at fever-speed through my
veins.
Again I heard the tones. I shrank, but
would not look up. Then suddenly I felt
myself tightly clasped by something, and a
whiaper in my very ear, '• Come, come,
come !" Trembling with fright I stam
mered, " I will come," and raiecd myself
upright.
Toe woman's form was bending over the
head ot my bed. It smiled slightly, and
faded, bnt.not before I bad been abl<: to
distinguish the features. It seemed to me
that 1 had seen them before ; but where —
when V It was late when I roae, and I spent
almost the whole day in the fresh air, went
to the old o-.k tree ct the edge of ths wojd
and regarded it thoroughly. Toward even
ing I so.ted mys-trlf beside the c p»n win
dow in icy study. My housekeeper
brought me s, cup of tea, but I was unable
to taste it. All eorta of thoughts besieged
me, and I aik-.-d myself seriously whether
1 was not on the roa*l to madness. It was
just after snnser, and not onlj the sky but
the wliole atm -sphere via suddenly euf
fused witu a hu^ern.-itur^l purple light;
leaves and weeds, emco'h as if freshly var
nished, were alike moti oless ; there was
■mimlllillU singular, almost mysterious, in
this absolute qoiet, thh dazzling sharpnec3
of outline, tan ■ ■ nbination cf intense
glow -.vi - i t.i • ...lcoss of death itself. A
lar^p gray bud Sew noiselenily toward me
and s?i -.tk-.l iteeU upon the balustrade of
my balcony. I looked at it and it locked
at me, its head ttdswaya, with its rouiid,
dusky eye "Are you sent to remind
me ':" I thought.
The bird spread its wings and flew
away as silently as it had come. I re
mained at the window for some time
longer absorbed in thought. I seemed to
be under a spell, a gentle but irresistible
power controlled me, as the boat is swept
oa by the car rent long before the cata
ract is in sight. When I regained pos
session of tinsel* the glow was gone from
the sky, which had grown dark, and the
enchanted stillness had ceased. A lijrht
breeze had eprung up, the moon rode
bright and brighter through the blue ex
panse, and in her cold light the trets
shimmered, biif dusk, half silver. My
old servant entered with a lamp, but the
draught from the window extinguished
the tlame. I Ma. ted no longer, thrust my
hat on my head md harried to the old oak
tree at the euge of the wood.
Years ago tnis oak tree had been struck
by lightning ; its top was snivered and
entirely blas'td, bst the trunk had still
vigor for coming centuries. As I ap
proached, a ti!my cloud drew over the
moon ; blaokt.-t shadow lay under the
broad branches. At tint I was not con
scious of anything unusual, but aa I glanced
to one aide n:v hi an throbbed — a white
form was taudiap motionless by a tall
sapling between me and the tree. My
hair stood in end, but I plucked np courage
and walked steadily oa.
Yes, it was the, my nightly visitant. A3
I drew near the moon shone out in fall
splendor. The fi .-are seemed woven, as
it were, out of a half-transparent milky
cloud ; through the face I could see » twig
that stirred with the wind, only the h&ir
and the eyes were of a somewhat darker
coloring, and ou one finger of the folded
hands I saw the faint glimmer of a narrow
ring. 1 remained standing before it and
attempted to speak to it, but my voice
died in my throat ; although I was not
sensible of fear. Its glance was full upon
me, the expression was neither of grief nor
of gladness, but a rigid, unlife-like atten
tion. I waited to bo addressed, bus it
kept immovable and eilont, with its death
like stare tixed on me. Again I felt my
selfpos3e-ssion failing.
"I am com.-.," I said at last with a
mighty effort. My voice was hollow and
unnatural.
" I love you,' returned a whisper.
" You lova me," I said in amazement.
"Give yourself to me," was answered,
still iv the same tone.
"Give myeelf to you? You are only a
thost. You have no bodily existence."
A peculiar excitement had taken possession
of me. "What are you? Smoke— air —
vapor? Give myself up to you? First
auawer me — Who are you ? Have you
lived m earth ? And whence do you now
come ?"
"Give yourself to me. I will do you no
ill. Say but two words : 'take me.' "
I looked at it attentively. " What is it
talking about ?" I thought. "What does
it all mean ? How can it take me ? Shall
I venture f
"Very good," I answered so that it
should hear, with unexpected loudness, in
deed, as if some one hit ma from behind,
"Take me !"
I had hardly pronounced the syllables
when the form bent forward with a smile.
co that the features trembled for a moment,
and slowly extended its arms. I would
fain have drawn back, but found it already
out cf my power. It twined about me,
my body was funnhl up a yard from the
ground, and gently, and not too rapidly, I
floated over th<- still and dewy pras*.
My head swam. Involuntarily I closed
my eyes, only to open them, however, the
next moment. We were s' ; H floating up
ward. Bat the wood was no longer to be
seen. Under us lay a wide plain, flecked
here and there with shadow. With horror
I realized that wo had gained a fearful
hight.
"I am lost. lam in the devil's clutch
es," was the thought that shot lightnin^
-Ike through my brain. Till this moment
the idea of demoniacal interference in my
undertaking had not occurred to me. W«
were borne constantly further, and took
our flight higher and higher as it appeared.
" Wnero arc you takiDg me?" burst
from me at length.
"Wherever you will," answered my
guide. It clung closer and closer to me,
and its face almo3t touched my own. Yet
I could not feel the contact.
" Take me back to the earth. This hight
makes me giddy."
" Good ; only shut your eyes and hold
your breath."
I followed this counsel and found myself
sinking like a stone, the wind fairly whis
tling through my hair. When I recovered
myself we were hovering just above the
ground, to that we stirred the tops of the
grass blades.
" Put me dowD," I said, "on my feet, I
have had enough of flying. lam no bird."
" I believed it would b« pleasant to you.
We have no other power."
"We ! Who are you, then ?"
No answer.
"Cin't you tell me anything?' 1
A weful tone, like that which had awak
ened me the tirst night, trembled in my
ear. All this whilo we had been moving
almost imperceptibly through the damp air.
" S=.t me down," I repeated. My guide
moved <iuietly aside, and I stood upon my
feet. It remained before me again with
folded hands. I had regained my com
posure, and looked closely in its face.
There was the same expression of melan
choiy rot human.
" Where are we?" I inquired, for I did
not rrcoguize my surroundings.
" You are not far from home, but in a
moment you may b? there."
"What? Must 1 trust myself to you
again ?"
" I have done you nu harm and will let
none cume to ytu. We c m llv till dawn,
not liter. I can take you wherever you
may desire— to the ends of the earth. Re
sign yourself to me ; say once more ' take
me.'"
"Then— 'take me.'"
Again she clasped me. I was lifted from
the {;roun j aud we tloa'ed in air.
"Whither?" Bhe asked me.
"On, straight on."
" But here are trees."
" Rise above them — only gingerly."
We soared upward, and toot once more
an onward course. Instead of grass, the
tops of the trees waved under our feet.
The wo :d, seen from above, presented a
Biugular appearance, with its moon-lighted,
prickiy b»ck. It «a 9 like some monstrous
sleeping creature, and the lew, ftcady
rustling of the leave?, like measured breath,
carried the resemblance still further. Now
and theu we pasfed above a little clearing,
along whose edge a charmingly indented
line of eh^lowlay. Occasionally we heard
belo'v us the plaiLtiff cry of a hare ; nearer,
the hoot of owls rang dolefully ; the air
was full of wild anrl piny smells ; on all
sides the moonlight Uy absolute and cnld,
and high above our heads shone the Ple
iades. Speedily we left the wood behind
and debouched upon a plain through which
some stream ran like a ribbon of mist. We
ilew along its banks over bushes that were
still and heavy with dampness. Here the
little waves swelled on the blue river, there
they rose dark and, threatening. Some
times a tine faint fragrance rose in a won
derful fashion, as if the water were taking
life and sonl ; it was where the water-lilies
unfolded their white petals in a maidenly
splendor, conscious that no hand could
reach them. The whim seized me to gather
one of these, and behold me already at the
surface of the stream. There was an un
pleasant sensation of moisture in my face
as I broke the tough stem of a great flower.
We Hew from Bhore to shore like the
jacko'-lantharns which we saw glittering
about us, and which we seemed to c'.iase.
At times we hit upon whole f.imiliea of
wild ducks squatting in a circle in a hol
low of the reeds, but they did not stir ; it
was a chance if one or another would with
draw its head from its wing, look about it,
and hasten to bury its beak again in t!>e
sofi down, or make a cackling accompanied
by a sh^k* of t>-e whole body. We roused
a h;:ton ; he emerged from a clump of wil
lows, stretcjci! his legs, spread his clumsy
wings, and lUpped heavily away. No
where did a tUh lean in tho water ; appa
rentlj they also slept. I bad by thij tune
become accustomed to the sensation of fly.
ing, anJ even began to lind it agreeable ;
every one who has dreamed of living will
un,lcr°t3nd this. I began to scrutinize t!ie
w.>n lerfnl being who bore me, and whom I
had t.> thank for these incredible experi
ences. It bad the appearance of a woman
with delicate, not Russian, features. Gray,
if h- white, nearly transparent, with 'careely
pcrceptiLilt: shidiDg, it reminded me of an
alabieter var-e, and once more seemed sud
denly, strangely familiar to me.
" May I talk to you ?" I asked it.
"Speak."
" I Bee a ring on your finger. You have
lived on earth, then, have been married?"
I stopped but there was no ans er.
"What is your name, orrathtr what
was your name ?"
" You may call me Kiiis. "
" Ellis ! That is an English name. Are
you an Englishwoman ? Have you known
me before ?"
"No."
" Why have you appeared to mo then ?"
" I love you."
" \\ ell— -does this satisfy yon?''
" Yes ; we are fly ing and circling together
in pure space."
"Ellis!" i cried, "can it be that yon
are a lost soul ?"
My companion's head sank. "I do not
understand," she whispered.
"1 conjure you in the name of God" — I
began.
"What are you saying?" she asked, be
wildered. And I fancied that the arm that
surrounded me like a chilled girdle trembled
slightly.
" Do not fear, my beloved," Ellis s«H,
"do not fear." Her face turned to mine
and approached it closely, and I felt a
curious sensation on my lips, like tho prick
of a tine needle.
I looked down. We h»d again ascended
to a tremecdous hight, and were flying
over a large city unknown to me. which
was built on the side of a high hill. Church
spire* rose here and there from the dark
mass of roofs and gardens, a bridge arched
the river- becd, erory thing ]aj in the deep-
est .stillness, bound in sleep. Domes and
crosses glimmered faintly in the peaceful
light ; a gray-white road ran still and
straight as an arrow from one end cf the
city and vanished still and straight in the
dim distance among the monotonous fluids.
" What is the city?" I asked.
" sow."
" so w is in the schen province,
ia it not?"
"Yes."
" Then we are a long way frcai borne f
" For ns distance is not."
"Truly?" A sadden recklessness awoke
ia me. "Take mo to South - America,
then."
"To America — there I cannot. There it
is day."
" So, we are birds o' night, the&, both of
us. Well, wherever yon c»n, only let it be
right far."
•' Shot your eyes and hold your breath,"
•vas Elbe's response, and we began to move
with the swiftness of a hurricane. With
stunning violence the wind whistled past
my ears.
We stopped, but the rushing souml did
not cease. (In the contrary, it increased
to a frightful roar, like a thunder peal.
"Now you Mb open your eyes," said
Ellip.
I obeyed. Good heavens ! where am I?
Over the heavy clouds are hurrying
across the sky like a herd of angry beasts,
and below is another monster, the sea, in
wildest rage. White foam is (pouting and
seething madly, waves tower mountains
high and dash themselves with hoarae fury
against a gigantic pitch-black reef. Every
where the howling of the tempest, the icy
breath of the revolted elements, the hollow
roar of the breakers, through which at
times I caught something like loud lamen
tations, dislant cannon and the peal of
belU ; ear-splitting crate and crunch of the
chalk cliff*, the tudden cry of an unseen
gull, and against the gray horizon the out
live of a reeling vessel — everywhere con
fusion, horror, and death. My head swam,
mv heart stopped. I closed my eyes anew.
"What is that, and where are we?"
"OB the southerly coast of the lale of
Wight, before the Blackgang Rock, where
ao many vessels ars lost," replied Ellis, this
time with great distinctness of tone, and,
%a I fancied, a shade of joyous excite
ment.
"Tike me away— away from here
home."
I sLrank into myself and pressed my
hands over niy eyts. I could fetl that ws
were moving more swiftly than before ; al
ready the wind ceased to howl and shriek ;
it blew evenly in my face, but co strong
that I could hardly breathe.
"Take your foot-hold," I heard Ellis
3ay.
I made a mighty effort to regain my full
consciousness and the mastery of myself.
I felt the ground beneath my feet, but
could hear no more than if everything
about me lay dead ; only on my own tem
ples the veins throbbed violently, une
venly, and with a little inward ringing ; I
was still half fainting. Bat I stood up
and opened my ej es.
We were on the bank of my own pond.
Straight before me I could see through the
slender willow leaves the glassy surface cf
the water, dappled here and there with
mist. On the right was the ryetirld in
tremulous motion, on the left rose steady
and dewy- wet the trees of my garden. The
morning had already breathed on them.
In the empty gray sky a pair of nairosr
clouds hung like snow-wreaths ; they were
russet ; the tir&t faint hint of dawn had
reached them ; the eye could not as yttdis
tiuguioh any spot on the wide horizon
where the daylight should break. The
stara were gone ; there wa3 no stir yet in
the magical half-light ; everything drew
consciously to ita awakening.
" Morning, morninj: is here !" E'lis mur
mured in my ear. " Farewell till to-mor
row."
I turned to her. She ro3e, lightly sway
ing, from the ground, and lifted both arms
abjve her head. Head, arms and shculdcr3
were suddenly sutTuscd with a warm, rosy
Hesii tint, the tire of lifo glowed in the
shadowy eyes, a smile of secret joy played
over the scarUt lips, it was a charming
woman all at once who stood bafore me.
But altnoHt instantly she sank back as if
exhausted, and melted away lite mist.
I Blood motionless.
When things about me had re-assumed
the aspects of ordinary life, I looked
round, and it seemed to me as if the rosy
glow that hr.d irradiated the fi.rm of my
shadowy companion had cot faded, but
stiii permeated the air and surrounded me
on every side. It was tiie Diwn. An ir
resistible languor crept over me, and I
went to the house. As I wca passing thf
hecn'ry my ear caught the fir.it morning
gabble of toe youn^ geese (of all winged I
cre£tnre3 the«e are the earliest to stir) '
and 1 saw the jickdaws perched on the j
rid^e pole busily preening their feath
ers agiins', tho milky eulnred sky. From
time to time they all flew ctl simulta
neously, and after a short Ilight settled
agiin silently in tbi-ir old places. From
the wood at hand loondod twice cr thrise :
the shrill cry of the mountain cock that ]
had alighted ia tVe dawy grass to seek for
berries there. With a s.;ght •■hillness in
my I'm. s I reached my own bed and at
at once sank into a profouud sleep.
On the following eight as I neared tho
oak tree Ellis glided to meet me as toward
a familiar friend. Nor did I experience the
horror of yesterday in ncr presence, in
deed I was aliiii..-. : glad to see bee ; I did
not even speculate on what might happen,
but only desired to be taken to some great
distance aud to some interesting places...
E'lis placed her arms about me and our
flight began.
Our flight was less rapid than usual, and
I could follow with my eye the unfamiliar
aspect of the familiar ground at it unrolled
like an endless panorama beforo me.
Woods, bushes, field?, ravines, stream?,
occasional villages and churches ; then
fields, woods, bushes and ravines again. I
had a feeling of sadness and also of indif
ference, almost of ennui ; but not in the
least because it was Ilasfia over which we
v:ere taking our flight. No ; the earth in
and for itself ; this flat plain that spread
before me, the whole pliaet with its ehoit
lived, helpless races, oppressed with poverty,
sickness ami care, chained to a clod of dust ;
this rough and brittle crust, this sediment, I
upon our planet's fiery core on which a
mold is grewn that we call by the high
sounding title of the vegetable world ;
thesa men flits, a hundred times Itss u-e
--ful than the flies their.&e'ivep, with their
dwellings of clay and the fugitive trace of
their little monvtor.ou! lives, their eternal
strife against t! •_■ inevitable and the im- |
n.utaole — how it shocked me ! My heart j
beat heavily in my bosom ; the desire to
contemplate any longer these unmeaning
picturts had entirely left me ! Yts, it was !
enr.ui as well. Not once did I feel pity
for my fellow-men ; every other thought
was followed up in one that I hardly dare •
to name ; it WJ3 loathing, and the pro
foundest, deepest loathing of all was — for
myself.
"0 ftj'f," breathed E'lis, " cease yocr
thoughts, elaa it would be impossible f ,>r
me to carry you. You are too heavy."
" Home !' I cried to her with the tone
in which I had summoned my driver once
when at 4 o"clock in the morning I took
leave of the friends at Moscow with whom
had baon discussing Russia's future.
" Home :" I repeats, aud closed my eyes.
It wae not long till L opened them. Ellis
began to nestle agaicst me in a singular I
way ; she nearly stifled me. I turned my '
eyes upon her and the blood curdled in mv j
veinß. Every one will understand me who
has ever chanced to catch an expression of
extreme terror on a stranger's facs without
any suspicion of its cause. A transport of
horror drew and distorted Eilis's pallid,
almost blotted out features. Never had I
seen the like on mortal face ; here was a
bodiless, nebulous ghost, a shadow, and
such rigidity of fear.
"Ellis ! What is the matter with yon ?"
I asked at last.
"He : It ia he !" With difficulty she
brought the wordß forth.
"He? Who is he?"
*' Do not name him - io not name him,"
L;hs stammered in haste. "We must seek
some refuge, el^e it is all at an end, and
for ever. Look ! There !"
I turned my head to the side where her
shuddering ting»r was pointing, and was
conscious of something— something that
was indeed awfal to lock upon.
Trrs something was tbb more frightful that
it had to decided form. A clumsy, horrible
dark-yeliow thing, spotted hke a lizard's
belly, neither cloud nor smoke, wa« crawling
snake-like over the earth. Its motion was
measured, broad-sweeping from above to i
below and from below to above, like tLe I
ill-omened flight of a bird of prey that !
seeks its booty ; from time to time it '■
swooped upon the earth in a indescribable, '
hideous way ; so the spider pounces npon
the entrapped tly. Who or wh&t art thju. :
grewsome Shape ? Under its influence — I '
saw and felt this — everything shrivekd
and grew rigid. A f >v', pestilential chill
spread upward. I felt myself fainting ; !
my si^ht grew dim, my hair stood en end. !
It was a Posrcr that was approaching ; a ;
power that knows no obstacle, that sub
jects everything to itself ; thst, blind and
fcrmlesß and senseless, sees everything, <
knows everything, controls everything;
| like a vulture selects its pr< y, like a snake >
crushes it and licks it with a deadly
tongur. |
" Ellis, Ellip," I shrieked like a mad
man, "That is Daath ! The very, living
Death himself !"
The lamentable sound tha: I had heard
before escaped Ellis' lips, only this time
it was far more liks a mortal cry of
despair ; find we llew op. Our ll'glit
waa Bingularly and frightfully unsteady ;
Kllia turned over and over in the
air, plunged first in one direction and j
then in tho ether, like a partridge tint,
wounded unto death, still endeavors to dis- '
tract the dog from her brood. But in the
meanwhile long feelers, like extended arms,
or rather lassos, had disengaged them
selves from the lump, and were stretch- ;
ing out after us with groping movement?, i
And thea of a sudden it rose into the
gigantic shapo of a shrouded tigure on a
pale horse. It grew, tilling tho heavens .
themselve, More agitated, more desprr- ;
ate became E'.li's tlight. "lie has Eeen ;
me— it is all over— l am lost," I caught '
ia broken whispers. "O miserable that I
»m ! The opportunity so close ! Life
within my grasp ! and now— nothingness—
nothingness !"
I could bear it no longer. Consciousness
left me. When I came to myeelf I v-as !
lying on my back in the and I felt
through my body a dull ache, as if after
■ heavy fall. Morning thckcied ia the i
•ky. I could clearly distinguish my eur
ronndingn. Not far otf there waa a wil- :
low- fringed read that ran beside a birch
wood. The region seemed familiar. I
began to recall what hsd happened to me,
and could not repress a shudder as I re- <
mrmbered the laat awful spectacle.
"But what can have terrified Ellis?"' I
thought. "Cm sha be subject to his
power? Is she not immortal? How is it
possiblo that she cau be doomtd to aniu.
hiiation ?"
A low ni?an sounded not far away. I
hastily turned my head in that direction,
and there, two paces from me, lay the mo
tionless form of a young woman in a white '
garment, with thick, unbound hair, and ;
shoulders bared. Oae arm was over her
head, tha other had fallen across her bosom, i
the eyelids were closed, and the tightly
compressed lips were stained slightly with '
a^ reddish froth. CulJ it be Ellis ? But '
Kllis was a ghost, and it was a real woman j
whom I saw. I crawled over to her and bent
above her. 'Ellis, ib it you?' I cried. I
The eyelida quivered, slowly uplifted ;
dark, expressive eyes fixed themselves
earnestly on my face, and in the next in- i
stant a warm, moist, fragrant mouth was
pressed to mine ; slender, strong arms
clasped themselves round my neck, a hot i
breast swelled against my own. " Fare- '
well ! farewell !" the dyiag voice said, and .
everything disappeared.
I staggered to my feet like a drunken '"•
man, passed my hand across my forehead, '■
and looked about me. I found myself on '
the schen roid, two verata from my
country seat. Bjfore I reached home the
m had risen.
For some nights following this I waited, '■■
let me confess it, not altogether without !
fear, for the return cf my companion, but |
she came no more. One evening, indeed, 1
stationed myselr st the old place, at the
old hour, but nothing unusual occurred. ;
After all, I could not regret the cad at so ;
singular an intimacy. I pondered mush '
and earnestly upon this inexplicable, in- j
comprehensible experience, aud had to ;
come to the conclusion that col only po=i- :
tive science is in no condition to handle ir ;
but that is is out of tea range of legends j
and fairy talcs even. Indeed, what wss
Kllia ? A fihost, a wandering soul, an evil
spirit, a sylph, a vampire, tinaily ! At
times the fancy possessed dm that E iiswaa .
in truth a woman whom I hal known ; :
and I ransacked my memory to tied where :
I miyht have seen her before. Hold ! a '
moment more and 1 have it '. Bat it never i
came. Everything grew confu3_d like a '
dream. Yes, I have thought much and, !
as is very often the case, hivo arrived at
m conclusion. I coold not bring mjseif j
to ask the a-.ivica or the opinion of others, I
UiT fear of being taken for a madman. At :
laat I gave up all my gropijga ; to tell the !
truth, I had other things to think of. First, ,
the emancipation of the serfs acd the I
equal distribution of lands, etc., inter- :
vened ; then tho coudi'ion of my health, ]

NOTES ON EDUCATION.
Brown University baa a f.eshman class |
of about ninety members.
The number of children studvin<; Ger- j
mini in the St. Louis public schoola is in- !
creasing.
__ Ail hazing has been stopped this term at ;
Union College. The attendance is as lar^e
as usual.
There are now in South Carolina 3,0r>7 i
free echoo's, instructing 61 '3?,'.) white and j
72,119 colored children.
There ia a movement in Cleveland for j
the establishment of an institution to be I
called the "Western Reserve School of i
b-'sigu for Women."
The large college in Persij which was I
completed last year with Government aid ]
has be^un its work, and is now instructing
Persian youths of the higher classes. Tho |
professors aro graduates of European uni
versities.
There are about 2.000 students in tho
special art classes of the evening schools of
Paris, and there are an equal number in
the commercial classes. The cookicg
classes in the school of domestio economy
for girls consist of only 53 pupils
Johns Hopkins University has opened
with a larger attendance than usual. The I
library has received many addition", ar.d it
is expected that the new laboratory build
ing will be ready for occupation at tho be
ginning of the second half.
The country schools of Maiue are not, as I
a rule, open rmre than three er fourtnoiiths
in the year. Some of the districts are de
ficient in pupils. In one county there are j
districts where fie average attendance at ]
school was only live scholars. Thera is a I
district near Augusts where forty years j
aso the average r.lteLdauce was 50 ; low it j
is but 10.
The attendance of Poland children in .
tho public schools of C .luaibus, Ohio, has j
been largely increased this term — a fact !
which is said to be dus to tho abolition of '■
separate schools. In that city aa elsewhere |
there is a demand for a more practical and '
less crowded and artificial system. " The j
public," cays tho Ohio Slate Journal, "is I
rapidly reaching the conclusion that the j
common school should be so conducted as j
to teach such elementary stndies aa are i
I absolutely necessary to everybody in the
| practical everyday affairs of life, and to
teach them to thoroughly and well that
they will constitute the bisis for any edu
cation that may be needed or acquired in
after life."
" Few teachers," says Secretary Dickin
son, of the Massachusetts !". nr i of Educa
tion, " realize the marvcioua capacity of
the child to create i-xilted objeota. He
may be taught to hate deformity and to
love beautiful objectß, until he shall turn
from all that is demoralizing ; and if the
| mind harbors only pure thoughts, the life
will be sweet and true. Some imaginations
are mire vivid than others, and gross ex
aggeration should not be cultivated, bnt
the ideal element ia often lacking alto
gether. The picture which a child draws >
upon hi? alate will indicate the play of his
I imagination, and will suggest the cultnre
moat needed. His taste for the beautiful
should be cultivated, and he should be
taught, discreetly, to use figurative lan- I
gupge."
Colt- Williams, an English inspector of
schools, ia » report to the Council of Edu
cation, says : " Wnen one thnki cf child
ren of tender yrars coi,:Eg in all weather? j
one or two miies and a 1 al to school, to i
be there by 9 o'o'.ock in lha morning ; I
school till 12 ; play and dinner ; school
again till 4 or 4:30 P. M ; and then the
walk home, in winter often in the dark,
home lessons to prepare for next morning,
and this fcr live days in the week for more
than nine mouths in the year — can more
ba added ? And yet this is the daily rou
tine of schools in my district, though we
have no singing by vote, very little poetry,
and no science. Time will show whether
eonndnesa in elementary subjects will not
give way t.i the fmattering of a medley."
He, too, hia heatd, as other inspectors
have more than one?, of children passing
sleepless nights and muttering their turns
iv their dreams, and asks these perti
nent questions : "Can such overwork of
young brains be a good thing ? And is not
the proper development of thews and
sinews, muscles and lung power, of greater
importance than an h-less murdering of the
gems of Shakespeare and Milton f These
are question* which may be asktd here as
properly na in K-iglsnd.
