TilO l.i'Mtlo.i la I le, i . I'o : O .e I. quire how far it was to ti e next house on road, thinking 1 could easily reach it before nightfall, I rode very leisure ly ; but, as I emerged from a beautifui piece of timbered land upon a far spread prairie, found that Time had far outstiipped me in his ride. 1 spoke a few inspiring words to Charlie, but he seemed restless and unu sualy fatigued. In a little while the shadows of night gathered about. One lone star after an other came out, but my faithful horse prsw more heedless of remonstrance, anei finally turned his head sharply as if he would bite. I sprang from my saddle, the rein in my hand was drawn lorth with sudden violence, and the hilherto gentle Charlie (led with tlie speed of lightning. The sudden recol lection of symloms that my horse might have been bit by a rabid dog, alarmed mo exceedingly. With tho most acute feeling of terror, I recalled every iremonitory sign of which I had ever heard, livery thing that I could call to mind served to strengthen the conviction that my horse was affected by hydrophobia. 1'ven now I cannot remember the awful moments of that dark night without feeling the cold drops collect on my forehead, and t xr oi i- encing an irrepressible shudder. upon the prairie, far fiorn a house, sur rounded by Egyptian darkness, i felt my dependence with a vividness truly startling. I raised my thoughts to Almighty Hod, ami prayed that I might be vpared that death which of all others 1 most dreaded. 1 be gan to recall a light thai, like a dim star, had ui Lietued iu lhJ distance Diy Guoils, (Jucciisware.
