From the of Foston Maec Lacny. Cath Ochus a thrilling sketch. It was a breathless flight in windows were All open and yet the flame of my Candle scarcely flick ered. I had become deeply interested in the pages of a new Book Najj was heedless of the lapse of Lime or the circumstances fluttered in around me until the flame and the Moth crack Ling fits Almy wings attracted Rny at mention. Upon glancing at my which Lay beside me on the table i found to my Surprise that it was already after Midnight. I determined there upon to read no More and shutting my Book walked across the room to draw the curl Ian intending immediately to go to bed but the Moonlight shone so pleasantly in at the window that i was forced to set Down and lean upon the Sill and gazed out upon the scene. There were a few thin whitish Clouds hanging about the horizon like the Dis Tant wings of an enormous spirit but otherwise the sky was perfectly Cloud less. Above the Moon was shining peacefully and below the would of Green was dreaming in its misty shroud half save where the curving River glancing in the Moonlight shone like a burnished Blade of steel. There is a strange fascination in sitting in the Moonlight and for almost an hour i sat leaning put into the air. All was silent save the monotonous musical gurgle of frogs in the Pond and at inter Vals the rustling of Green As a tremulous breath of wind swelled gently and the died away or the prolonged bark of some far off dog. I had fallen Mlo a vague i heard the Bell strike the hour of one. I arose and went to bed. But no sooner had i left the window that i fell a Sharp pain shoot through my head which after recurring at intervals through the next half hour finally set in to a raging head ache. Ray brain throbbed violently and is earned Loose in my head so hat every motion added to the t i if a Iron hand compressed within its griping fingers. thus tossing restless and sleep less for several hours and finally fell i was lying beside a Waterfall half asleep. The water Rush. Down Westfe me As if an Ocean loosed and hurried boil ing fiercely Down a Rocky n the air was drizzled with which fell Over me like hot Sparks and the Trees above me through it nerved at times human de Lemons which Long Bony arms Lony face and then slowly rising up lifted themselves into the air and be came natural Trees again. A thousand circles inter tangling and interlacing dilated and contracted incessantly then slowly the motion decreased and they kept creeping around me , they a Broad sea of so Puih Glassy and fading out my sight left the air about me All Calm and Clear soon a Small 6ye seemed looking plact dry at me that grew or and larger until it filled the wide eng of the horizon then it changed into a face which looked into my eyes gradually the features became distorted into a hideous mask and grinned and then i thousand similar faces crowded one upon another until the air seemed full of them they were huddled to Gether and tossed about without body like the Waves of the Ocean. Now i suddenly seemed to be crawling on my hands and Knees Over Slimy and slip Pery rocks which were covered with Damp Green Sej Vve eds. As i groped along the sea weeds began to change into snakes until the rocks seemed alive Wajih the nauseous crawling rep tiles that rubbed their Slimy sides against my limbs and Cheeks and cast Over me a dreadful chill of horror All my flesh seemed to creep and the very Scalp to move on my Skull. In the midst of my horror and Tor ment i heard the wild ring of a i suddenly and convulsively opened my eyes and heard the Bell ringing. For a moment i experienced the most grate from the torments of this no one can Tell the glad gush of feeling which come Over me when hound All this horrible scene was but a dream. I Lay thus a moment thinking of the change and then resolved to Spring from he bed and dress my self immediately hut what was my surprised and horror when i found i could not move j. My body and limbs seemed rigid As rna Rolfi and of an in tolerable weight. I could neither turn head nor stir my feet. Eye balls were fixed on a spot on the a White Wall Over my head and i could neither turn them nor draw Down the lid. In vain i strove to move f was perfectly stiff unit torpid and without the Power of motion. There see ined to lie some appalling connection Between the will of the muscular the mind and the body As if my living soul was chained Mere Ntilis like to a dead body. There was no a fearful sensation a if the whole Ait had congealed into a firm transparent Amber which held me imprisoned. Suddenly like the Swift track of a fallen Star the thought shot across my mind that i was dead. Yes that could be the Only solution of this dreadful in was sure that i but 0 god was this death had we been always mistaken and did the soul remain thus to haunt the body without the ability to cast if off was death Only suspension of Power Over this fibrous mass these finely organized sen ses and nicely adjusted Muscles Only the breaking of one link in the Subtle Chain that connected All the faculties and Power with their instruments perhaps the soul was never freed until the body had rotted off Little by Little into a mass of corruption and exhaled or fallen to dry dust and i was destined to inhabit this living House and feel it Slough away from me and perish Ere 1 could emerge into he Light and Beauty of a renewed life. This i had never dreamed of and All the. Joy and luxury of existence All the sense of Light and Sunshine and fresh Airall the thousand fold delights with which god has strewn the pictured world were not Worth such a Price. Upon these lips the worm should feed and i not jail not drive him away these eyes through which the soul had looked upon a mild Glo rious world through Clear glasses would change until they were Loath some and corrupted. Of god the agony of such a thought. Ino Lhing i had Ever imagined equalled it in terror and when i recollected the dead faces of those whom j had loved and and in sign smile which shown upon them like the last footprints of the freed and rejoicing spirit fled which h Bej Oken the re mpg i lion of the soul of a diviner sense As it was leaving its Clay thought even at the while i was bending Over them to take p Farewell look with this were Endon ing the same fierce burning the Fame feeling of horror and despair that now a thawed to like a Burnin worm it seemed to me As if the Joys j had even known on Earth would not counterbalance so dreadful a thought. Heard my name called from below i made a no her Effort but my tort tie was torpid and Dull As Lead. Still i could not resign myself to the thought that i was dead. I inwardly declared i would strove with almost super human exertions but i vain i Pould not take my eyes from hat spot on the Wall which had become accursed because i must see it. Sideways through my eyes i tilt the pleasant Sun Shine glowing in All the Ruboni and Over my head the Busy flies Humi died and buzzed incessant and crept and then across my face. How Long arid tedious were the to were years to my excited no one came. An age of torment seemed to have passed when i slight tap. At. The door i could not answer it. Again i heard a or Knock i knew it was my sister for she spoke and called me by the door opened and she came Forward cautiously and again approached the bed. She looked a Momet at me and touched did not speak. But Lay motionless with my eyes strained at that infernal spot. She paused a moment and then piercing scream ran to the door an d called for my Mother. Instantly the horror of the cry brought the family my Side. They lifted . Fell again upon the cover lid. They of my was not a flutter of a pulse for All that it seemed As if hell itself Cou d not be worse than the Tor ment i was enduring. I heard Quick convulsive sobs and Felt a soft hand smooth my hair from my some one said. He must have died in a fit and yet How Cairn is his was the answer he probably suffered no pain and Ched Al most in his then the voices grew More distinct and murdering and some one left t he room. Soon the door opened the face of the family physician1 intercepted the damned spot for a moment. Now thought i he will know that i am not dead and will relieve from this situation. He Felt of my hear and pulse moment and then i heard him say in answer to the anxious inquiries Madam 1 am sorry to say he is entirely my Art can Avail him nothing the voices then became lower and i listened in vain. It was 3 Long dark the shutters were closed and persons trod lightly across the floor and spoke 10 Erich other in an under tone As of the place was sacred. That silent Awe which chamber of death and Hughes the voice As if the senseless Clay could hear had passed Over their spirits like breath stain upon a i heard the Low confused murmur of voices drone through the darkened chamber. Now and then the door opened and some one Bent Over Rand gazed at me while scalding tears fell upon my face. Then the room was emptied of Sill persons vend i was left alone in dark Ness and stillness. I listened for Voi Ces for anything was better than this dreary in vain a spell was in the House sound of laugh Ter its Lapid foots Elps its Bustle and noise were sle was care Ful and slow and every voice a Whis per. So went hour after hour and i still Lay hopeless longing for the moment when i should be Able to loosen myself from the close deadly which almost pressed the life out of As i Lay thus i suddenly heard a Bird s gush of song from the tree be Neath my window How unconscious of so near How my heart sickened within a Raj As i heard it soon and wrapped me in Linnen and Evv arched my limbs and made the horrible arrange ments. Some one said How. His look a and then gently pres sed Down my Eye lids my eyes.-.
