a iinitMA.s
In onlur to fool my lii'iitoil brain, I
went out to tlio open air, uiitl waiidor-
otl about tliu streets. I wi utltlrosnt'tl
by a niimbi'r of persons whom I tlitl
not know j ami of my aeijualnt-
aiifw, to whom 1 inailvertantly spoke,
tliil not know iiie. With thn former I
was very short, answering their qucs-
tions at raniloin, anil Kottlni; olfas kioii
as ponilblc. To tho latter I could only
npolool.e, aisurino; them that they had
been mistaken by me for other persons.
I felt niybltuatlon most unpleiiMiut; for
besides thu coiiselousncss of no longer
being myself, I was constantly running
Into the most perplexing blunders. Vor
Instance, nfter strolling about for a eon
Mdernblo period, I canio, as It were, by
it sort of Instinct, to my own lodgings.
For a time I forgot my situation, and
knocked at tho door. It was opened by
my domestic, from whom I took tho
cantllu which ho held in his hand, and
-Mr. Stndt is not In, sir," said thu man
following me, "perhaps you will sit till
he comes: I expect him soon." This
aroused niofr,dii my ruvorle, confirming
too truly tho fact that I was changed. I
started up from tho seat into which I
had drooped, rushed past Ii lit i with dis
may, and gained tho street. Hero 1
mado up my mind to return to Wol-
stang's lodgings, which I accordingly
did. in a mood which u condemned
criminal could hardly envy.
I kept thu houso for tho whole of tlio
next day, employing myself in writing,
in order tlmt tlio servants might at least
seo some cause for my eonllneinent.
Notwithstanding this, it wnscasy to ob
servo that they perceived something
unusual about inoj nndsuveral remarks
which escaped them, convinced mo that
they considered my head touched in no
slight degree. Although I tlid all that
1 was ablo to composo myself, It wits
Imposslhlt! that I could think llko Wol
Htang, and still lens than 1 could know ft
hundred private and household matters,
on which tho pertLoulsoor sapient liar
nnlms mndo ti point of consulting mo,
Whenever I was spoken to concerning
things that I knew, my answers weru
kind and condescending; but on any
point about which I was Ignorant, I utj
terly lost temper, and peremptorily lor-
bade them to repent It. lloth shook
their heads nt such Inconsistent behav
ior nnd it was soon bruited among tho
neighbors, that lr. Albert WoNtaiig
had parted with his senses.
Tlioseeond day nrrived.and found mo In
thosamo statoof mind. Tho amazement
which succeeded tho discovery of my
metamorphosis had Indeed given way
and 1 could look at my reflection in tho
mirror with less pain than at first ; but
my feelings wero still embittered as ov
or, and I urdently longod fur dentil to
put and end to such Intolerable misery
Whllo brooding over theso matters, tho
door of tho study opened. Thinking It
was ono of tho domestics, I paid mint
tentiou to It ; but In a moment I heard
a sneeze, which mndo my flesh to creep.
and In another, tho littlo man with tho
snuff-colored surtout, tho scarlet waist
coat, mul tho wooden leg, inailo his np
pearanco, Binco I last saw this old ft1
low, I had conceived iv mortal hatred
against hi in. I thought, nil though thu
Iden was wild enough, that ho had somo
hfiml In my Metempsychosis; and tho
nffnir of tlio scales and tho marhlo busts,
togcthur with, hi, 1'y thagorenn opinions,
his vast learning, his geoniaiicy nml n$
trology, gave to my Idea rt strong con
firmation. On tho present occasion, his
politeness was excessive ; ho bowed nl
most to tho ground, mndo fifty apolo
gies for Intruding, nnd Inquired with
tho most outre affectation of tenderness
Into thu state of my health. Ho then
seated himself opposite to mo, laid his
cocked hat upon tho table, took n pinch
of stitiir, and commenced Ills intolerable
system of .sneezing. I was never less In
a humor to relish anything like foppery.
So throwing myself back upon tho chair
putting on as commanding a look as I
could, nnd looking ut him fiercely, I
said, "So, sir, you are back again ; I sup
pose you know mo'.'"
"Know you, my dear friend eh yes,
I derived great pleasure lu being mado
acquainted with you the day before yes
terday. You nro Mr. Frederick Stadt
that Is to say, you aru Mr. Albert Wol
stnng." (,1 sneeze.)
"Then you know that I nm not my
self V"
"My dear friend," replied ho, with ti
smile, "I hinted as much as tho last time
I saw you."
"And pray how tlid you ascertain
"You don't ask mo such n iiuestlon,"
saldjho, with an air of surprise ; "I kniiw
It by your signature."
"My own signature V,l know not what
you mean by my signature."
"Kli eli tho signature, you know
that Is, tho compact you made with
"1 know of no compact," cried I, In a
passion ; "nordld 1 ever make one with
any man living. I defy either you or
Wolstang to produce any such Instru
ment." "I believe It Is In my pocket nt this
very moment. Look hero my dear sir."
And ho brought out a small manuscript
book, and turning up tho leaves, point
ed tn view tho following words:
"I hereby, In consideration of the sum
of fifty gilders, give to Albert Wolstang
tho me of my body, nt any tlmo ho Is
disposed, provided that, for tho time be
ing, ho gives mo tho use of his.
FitKrimticic Stadt.
"It Is forgery," said I, starting up
with fury; "a deccptio vltus, nt least;
something liko your scales."
"What about tho scales, my dear
friend?" said ho with a whining voice.
"Go," replied I ; "Into that room.nnd
you shall sec." Ho accordingly went,
but returned immediately, saying that
heobserved nothing remarkable. "Not"
said I, rising up; "then I shall take the
trouble to point it out to you." My as
tonishment may be better conceived
than described, when instead of the small
apothecary's scales, I beheld tho Im
mense ones In which I had been weigh
ed two days before. I felt confouded
and mortified, and returned with him
to the study, muttering somethlngnbout
deccptio rhiu, necromancy, nnd demon
ology. " ell," continued I.nfterrecovenng
a little, "what about this compact; when
and where was it mado'."'
It is mado somo threo days ago, nt
tho Devll's-hoof Tavern. You may
remember that you and Wolstang wero
milking then1 nt that time."
"Yes, 1 remember it well enough;
but 1 understood that I wnspiittlng in
nnuio to a receipt for fifty gliders which
lio paid me. I never read the writing;
I merely subscribed it."
That wasapity ; for really you have
bound yourself as firmly ns signing
with a person's own blood can do."
111. I I cl.oi 11 M ill. n- nu'ii l.lon.l
said I, alarmed.
" ICxactly so. You may recollect cut
ting youi finger. I bad tho pleasure of
stanching tlio blood ; a sufllcleut iiuan
tlty of which was nevertheless collected
to write this document,"
"Then you wero present," said I
"yes, I have a recollection of your face,
now thatyoumentlon thocircuinstnnce.
You wero then dressed as it clergyman,
if I iiii-tako not."
And what," continued I, "aro tho
conditions on which I hold this strange
existence? Suppose Wolstang dies?"
"Then you keep his body till tho
natural period of your own death.'
" Supposo I die?"
" Ho then keeps your body."
"Then if bodies, my body Is burled
and goes to decay, while lam clogged
up lu his body, till relieved from it by
" Precisely."
This announcement struck mo with
terror. "And shall I never," said I,
weeping, "seo my dear body again?"
'You may seo it, if ever Wolstang
comes in your way."
" JIutsluill I never possess It ; shall 1
never bo my self ugaln?"
" Not unless ho pleases."
"Tho vllllnnl" uxclnlmed I, in an
agony of grief.- "f am then undono; tho
fool of a heartless .unprincipled mlscie
ant. Is my caso hopeless?"
'O no. my dear friend," said tho lit'
tlo man, "not at all hopeless: there Is
nothing simpler than tlio remedy. Only
put your name hero, and you will bo
yourself In ft minute. Tlio fellow will
then lo.-o all power over your lioily." I
seized with avidity tlio pen which ho
nresented tome, dipped Ulna vial of
red Ink, and was proceeding to dons ho
directed, when tho writing abovecauglit
in v eye. It ran thus,:
"I hereby engage, nfter my natural
decease, to give over my soul to tho
owner of this book."
" Zounds!" said I, "what Is tills?"
"It Is nothing at all; Juta form, u
mere form of business, of no Intrlnsl
meaning. If you would Just write you
name : it is verv'easlly done."
"llasanv other nerson signed sue!
deeds?" demanded I.
" Many a one. Here, for example, Is
Wolstang's name attached to a similar
contract. It Is, lu fact, by virtue of
this that ho has the power over your
body, Tho deed which you havosigned
would havuavnlled him nothing without
this ono,"
"Then." said 1," If you rellovo mo
from my present condition, you break
fulthwlth Wolstiuig, Boeing that you
deprive him of his stipulated power."
" I deprlvo him of his power over you,
but I glvo lilm In return it similar power
over somo other person, which will
answer his purpose equally well. I
think you had better Hlgn."
"No.youold villain I" said I, wrought
up to n pitch of fury nt thelnfcrnal plan
which I saw ho was meditating ; "I will
nover sign your compact. I have re
ligion enough to know tho valuo of my
soul, and siilllclent philosophy to bear
with any wretchedness I may endure
under my present form. You may play
the Devil If you choose, but you shall
never get mo to act the part of Dr.
Fausttis." I pronounced these words lu
n voice of thunder; but, so far from hc
Ingnngry, ho used every endeavour to
soothu mo; made a thousand apologies
for having been tlio unwilling cause of
such n commotion; then snatching up
his bat, and making a profound bow, ho
left thu room.
A glow of conscious virtue passed over
mo on his departure. I found that I had
resisted evil, and gloried in the thought;
but this triumphant feeling gavo way to
ono of revengo ngulust the' author of my
calamity. After reflecting for n short
time, It occurred to mo that tho best
way to punish him would bo to commit
some outrage which might stamp him
with Infamy, and render him miserable
If hoover thoughtof resuming his body.
"I shall at least havo hlmexpelled from
the University. This shall bo tho first
blow directed ngninst his comfort. He
will in tlmo become weary of my body,
and will find very littlo satisfaction in
his own when ho takes it into his head 1
to mako au exchange." Full of these
ideas, I entered the collcgo-court,whcre
tho first object thot mot my eyes was
Doctor Dedimus Dunderhead coming
towards mo; the baton In his hand, the
spectacles on his earhunclo nose, nnd his
head thrown back as ho strutted along
a la mttltalre. Without ft moment's
hesitation, I advanced up to him, und
knocked off his cocked hat; nor did I
stop to seo how ho looked at this extra
ordinary salutation, but walked delib
erately on. I heard hi in distinctly call
after me, "You shall bear of this, sir, by
to-morrow." " When you,"
was my answer., "Now, Master Wol
stang," said I to myself, "I have driven
you from Gottlugcn College, and wish
you much Joy of your expulsion." Such
were my thoughts, and tho morrow
verified them : for a meeting of the
Senatus Acadcmlcus being summoned
by tho provost, that learned body de
clared Albert Wolstang unfit to be a
member of tho University, and lie was
cordlngly placarded upon thn gate
id expelled, m terrorem.
Tills circumstance being Just what I
.anted gavo mo no uneasiness ; but a
few days thereafter an event arouso out
of it, which subjected me to much In
convenience. Having unwittingly strol
led into tho college, I was rudely col
hired by ono of tho officers, which so
enraged me that I knocked tho fellow
down with a blow of my fist. For this
I was apprehended tho sanio day by
three gendarmes, and carried beforo tho
yndlc, who condemned mo to suffer
two week's close confinement, and to bo
fed on bread and water. Tho punish-
lent, though perhaps not dlspropor-
tloneil to the otrenco, was, lu my esti
mation, horribly severe; and now, for
tho first time, did I feel regret for tho
absurdity of my conduct. I full nil that
in endeavouring to punish Wolstang
I was In truth only punishing my
self, and that it was a matter of doubt
whether ho would ever submit to a
corporeal change, seeing that my for
tune was much moro considerable than
his own, and that he would come at it
in thocourso of six months. This Iliad
no doubt was the chief consideration
which could have Induced the fellow to
bring about such a metamorphosis.
On getting out of prison I was tlio
most miserable wretch on earth. Tho
flerco desire of vengeance had formerly
kept up my spirits; but this was now
gone, and they sunk to tho lowest pitch.
I found that 1 was spurned by those
cry persons who wero beforo most
anxious to cultivate my friendship.
liarnnbas ami Louiso had left me, re-
olving no longer to serve ono who hail
undergone tho punishment of n male
factor. In order to clear up matters, I
frequently called at my own houso to
Inquire If I myself was at homo; for so
was I obliged to speak of tho miscreant
who hail possession of my body, but on
every occasion I was niisworod In thu
negative. " I had gone out to seo a
friend lu town." " I had gono to the
wintry." "I was expected soon."
Never by any possibility could I get
a sight ol myself. All this convinced
mo that tho case was hopeless, ami that
I must mako tho best of my deplorable
situation. Wolstang had evidently
played my part much better than I did
Ills, for lie had an Interest .In doing so,
and was (thanks to my simplicity) In-
tlmntely acquainted with tho state or
my nffairs. If any thing could add to
this Irritation, It was to notlco the' Im
provements, or rather changes, which
tho fellow was making In my house.
Kvery thing wbb turned upside-down.
Many or tho most valuable books In my
library wero brought to tho hammer,
mid replnced by more modern works.
Somo antique MSS. found ninong thu
ruins of Pompeii, nnd on which I set a
high value, wero disposed of In tho same
manner ; together with my porphyry

The Milwaukee Sentinel vouches for
tho following remarkable incident:
Near ono of our grain warehouses
situate on the rlvor bank, largo swarms
of rate havo been In the habit of feast
ing on tho wheat which has been scat
tered around. A few days ago a terrier
getting wind of tho rendezvous, made
on attack upon neoupioof rats that had
ventured too far Into tho open ulr. Sei
zing ono In Its teeth, It shook It vigor
ously. Tho rnt squealed plteously, at
tracting to tho spot n dozen or moro
companions. These, on seeing the situ
ation of affairs, Joined In raising tlio
alarm. In less time than It takes us to
tell tho story, tho Ico around was black
with a swarm of rats, numbering sev
eral hundreds. Tho terrier, after dis
patching tho first victim, charged Into
tho swarm with the evident determina
tion of serving tho remainder In liko
manner. Hut for once a terrier was
doomed to meet with fight from tho
poor animals he had so long devoured
ut pleasure, and In n trlco ho was sur
rounded ou itll sides by a swarm of fe- J
roclous brutes anxious to bo avenged
for tho death of thelrcompitnton. Then
ensued the most frightful scone imag
inable. Tho rats swarmed around their
ndversary and fastened their claws and
teeth Into his flesh. The dog, enraged
by tho pain, fought bravely, killing;
scores of his enemies In his contest for
life. But tho odds against him wero too
great, and after a sharp conflict, which
lasted for about flvo minutes, he was
forced to succumb. His body was Utcr-
ully devoured by tho rats, they seeming
to take a savage pleasure in tearing
their vanquished, enemy to pleoa-moal.
Scarcely a vestige of tho animal re
mained behind. The terrier died game,
howover, for thero were about half n
hundred rats left upon tho field, bleed
ing and mangled, nnd ns many more,
moro or lass Injured.
" A singular instance of tho kindli
ness of dumb animals to their fellows
was noticed at the conclusion of tho
combat. A number of the combatants
had been somewhat lacerated by tho
teeth of tho dog. Their companions
gathered in groups around them, licked
the blood from their wounds, and then
tenderly carried them in their' teeth to
their nest. The bodies of the slain
wore as tenderly cared for. Ono by one
they were carried away to a hole lu the
Ico near by, where they 'were piled up.
When all tho bodies had boon gathered
together, tho turvlvors grouped around
them, and ono of the number, mount
ing upon the pile of bodies, seemed
to deliver a brief funeral oration over
the remains of their companions. Tho
utmost stillness reigned nnvong tho
company during tho address of their
chief. Tho whole company then pro.
ceeded to tumble their dead companions
into tho water, where they soon sank
from sight. In half an hour scarcely a
vestige of tho conflict remained. This
burial service was the most extraordi
nary instance of the kind wo havo yet
observed, and is well deserving of tho
study of naturalists. Tlio light as a
