A. merchant left St. Petersburg to
travel across Europe, Ia , the course
of his . jo'uruey he. arrived at, War
saw. Beio furni-hed with a letter
j of introduction, he repaired to the
Uou'e of onu of the chief citizens
there, and was .most courteously re
ceived. Ue stayed at Warsaw: for a
week, and hia host spared no pains to
make his visit agreeable, aud showed
hits everythiog worth b'eeiug iu the
"own. Indeed,, the vjsitor was oven
whelmed by an amount of kindness
rarely, shown but to a friend oi l)Ug
standing:. ; .. , (
,. At last the pleasant visit drew to
its close, and atter breakfast the guest
expressed a wibh to see aotnc poor
parts of the towo, of which he had
heard. Uut said .he, "I have with
me a box of great value,, that I do cot
tike to risk iu .fetich pi ices.; If it were
uay own I should not he so particular;
but it was cntrusttd to iue by a liiend
wlp requested me tq deliver it to. a
person in aDother , towu. . It contains
diamonds and other valuables. Would
you do rre the great llvor of taking
charge of it for the ay?'1;
.The host with his usail urbanity,
willingly agreed to this proposal and
the merchant started, with ft light
heart oa his tour of inspection, I for
get the- name, tut let us say in the
"SeveB Dials," or '"Five i'oitits" of
VTarsaw. '., . ,
Next morning after ; breakfast he
cord ally thanked his kind enterta:ners
for their zuft'us hospitaliiy, and added
that, as he was about ..U depart be
vrould now resume his charge of the
box, which had. never be. ore quitted
his person since he had received it
from the owner. The host and host
ess stared at him in well-acted
amnzement. "What, box?" replied the
host. "I remember do box; do you,
my dear?'" turning to his wif. . ."No,"
she said, "I have no recollection of
any box whatever." "What was it
like?" asked the host; "perhaps you
left it in your room. ' iiut. on the
rr.cichaot persisting that it was with
the host himself it had been left, on
his returning to his hostes and trying
to make her recollect the circum
stances, both, (after appealing to each
other sevcr-1 .tims, and fcrtilying
each other in their dcuial) became
crll and distant, and began hinting
something must have happened
to the merchant ,to ioducehiin to ptr
sist in so sfrango a djlusion. As the
host touched his forehead with a 'g
nificant glince, the poor man remepi
btred that ho was in a stranke city;
