Tho Soft No.
Young Kilty sat knitting. "My darling," I said,
"I had ft most benutlful dream t
Shall I tell It?" Sho give a slight shako of tlio
And answered "I'm tuiinimo the sham 1"
I reached for tho mesh, speckled soft llkon pink,
i tint sue neui lit ncr lingers so small
Hut she answered, 4 1 can't leavo my work only
l'm knitting n sock for a doll,"
'Don't lease mo so, Kitty, my di'nr little one,
ton nro eiying to hear I'll bo bound I"
"Just wait," sho said, smiling as brljlitns Ilia
Just wnlt '111! I've knitted n round."
1 wniled Impatient and then I drew near,
.vim, pusiuni: the curls from her brow.
Isnld: "Are yon rody,iny Kitty, my dear?"
sue uuswered, ' I'm narrowing now I"
Still nearer 1 el row put my arm round her
Murbicnklug of sllcnco the seal.
Repented! "Dear Klltyl why, what 'is your
Hlio answered "I'm setting IJio heel I"
I smiled, and I frowned-I looked up nt Ihe
At tlio coals 'neath the forcstlck aglow,
nd then nt dear Kitty sho held up the sock
Saying, "Would you put white In tho toe?"
"You sham, hear me, Kitty, you dearest of
And then, If you will, you may scoll I"
Shu shook loo--e tho hand I had laid em her
Asshr said, "I'm just IIINIIINO OH'I"
"I dreamed of a coltago e-mboweied with tieei,
And under tho bluest of sklos "
Sho checked mo wllh-"Slt farther oil; If you
My needles will got lu your eyes 1"
"I dreamed you wero thcro, llko n roso at my
Aud that love, Kitty, i.ovi:, made m rich 1"
I told you to sit farther oir, once boforo "
Sho answered, "I'm dropping a stitch!"
Sho knitted tlio last, nnd broken the thread,
hen l crieu, "Am I only n friend?
Or may I bo lover ?" Sho quietly said.
"Pray, wait till I've fastened tho end 1"
Will you marry mo?" Hero the worst enmo to
Thcro was nothing to do but to go.
For I learned nt tho last, what I might liavo
It was all her soft way to say, No I
A FIGHT IN A TUNNEL.
Many years niro, my health having
becorno impaired by over study, I was
recommended to pass a winter in tho
south of France. Of to agrocablon pro
scription I readily availed myself. I
was without wifo or child to encumber
my departure; and armed only witli a
portmanteau, mado a most delightful
journey of it to tho charming town
of V .
Shortly niter my arrival, whilst sit
ting at tho window of my hotel, a man
pasted by so very much iiko myself,
that, struck witli tho resemblanco, I
rose, and leaning forward, followed hini
witli my eyes. His dress bespoko him
an Englishman. Ho was tall; so was I.
Slim; I was slim. His eyes wero blue,
ills tkiii fair, liis hair n deep auburn,
ills iioso aquiline. All this was my por
trait. When ho had leached tho bot
tom of tho street ho paused, looked
around, and then slowly returned, cros
sing tho road, however, and taking tlio
opposite pavement. This enabled mo
to get a nearer viow of tho man. I con
fess I was much impressed witli tlio re-
semblance, and hardly liked it. Tho
physiologist, I thought, may delight as
much ns he pleases in such a coinci
dence; for my part I decidedly objectto
being mado any portion of any sort of
phenomenon. I had read of very un
pleasant consequences following person
al resemblances, and earnestly hoped
that this individual whom nature,short
of moulds at the time, had undoubtedly
cast in mine, would speedily clear tho
neighborhood of his presence.
A week or two after this, in taking a
walk across a beautiful bit of adjacent
country, I suddenly encountered my
likeness scaled on n rustic bench bo
neatli it tree, with his arm encircling
tho waist of a very beautiful peasaut
girl. Her skin of a puro and cream
llko tint, finely contrasted with tlio
splendid 1 uxurianco of her black hair.
Her eyes Hashed upon mo as I passed,
and I noticed her draw herself erect
witli rapid hauteur, as If indignant or
Imp atlcnt of detection. Tlio man by
her sido, who would havo passed very
well for mo to any other person but my
mother or myself, still maintained Ills
caressing attitude Ho did not conde
scend to raiso liis oyes to mo a? I passed
but kept them fixed upon tho fuco of
tlio girl who, I could sco, watched mo

As I passed them, I must confess to
having experienced a momentary sen
sation of envy of tlio raau. Slnco na
turo had put him in my skin, I thought
that it seems only fair that I should put
myself in liis shoes. For all I knew, I
redacted, that beautiful peasant girl
might havo been Intended for me; but
tho intention of naturo lias been defeat

On reaching tlio bottom of tlio lauo I
had fallen upon a cut de sac. Tho pas
sago terminated in a series of fields,
across which 1 could discover no foot
path. I had no wish to bo arrested for
trespassing, to I decided on returning
tho way I hud como.
On sighting tho way I had come, I
found that it wru deserted, I was not
sorry; I would by no means havo dis
liked another peep nt tho beautiful
brunette; but, at tho snmo time, Iliad
no ambition to Inspire tho couplo with
tho notion that I was watching them,
I had got to tho top of tlio hill nnd
was passing between u row of thick
bushes, makli'g a sort of n natural
lied go for a broad area of trees, llko a
gigantic park, when I was suddeuly
startled by tlio report of n pistol ou my

hollow sound of n ball striking my hat,

attack was horribly midden. Who iu
tlio namo of heaven wanted ray Ufa ?
For what crimo wasmy llfodcmandcd?
What had I dono? I saw tho bluo
smoko curling up from tlio don30st por
tion of furzo and twigs caused by tho
hasty High t of somo ono.
I picked up my lint. Tho ball had
passed through it. Had it struck two
inches lower it would havo entered mv
I hastened toward tho town, possessed
with much tlio sanio sort of cnviablo
feeling as you might imagino a Tipper-
nry landlord or ngent would feci who
sees threats of his lifo carved on every
other treo. Bravery in n situation of
this sort was qutto out of tho question.
Of what uso is pluck when you liavo to
deal with invisible foes. I might al
most confess to havo broken Into down
right fright as I neared tho town, soox-
trpmoly anxious was I to escapo tlio vi
cinity of every sheltering bush, treo or
lieelgo In tho neighborhood.
On gaining my hotel, I began to ro
lled on my narrow escape. I had been
too much excited to nltiich to it tliosig
nillcanco it demanded. But tho holo in
my hat conveyed tho most shuddering
information on my narrow escape. Be
yond nil reasonable doubt my lifo With
in that hour had only been worth two
I repeated tho question to myself:
Who wants my lifo? And ir anybody
wants II, what nro his claims, What
havo I dono to merit assassination?
Being wholly unablo to answer these
queries, I resolved to mako a confidant
of my host, tho hotel keeper. I called
him to my room and told him what had
happened. Ho shrugged liis shoulders
as lie exclaimed :
"Monsieur, llko tho rest of mankind,
must pay tho penalty of making lovo."
"But," said I, shocked nt his sang
froid, "I havo not mado love. Slnco I
havo been here, I am not conscious of
even having looked at a woman, much
less spoken to ono."
"Then it is an enigma," ho replied.
"Tlio only solution I can ofler you is,
that you liavo been mistaken for somo
"Mon Dieu," I exclaimed, "you havo
undoubtedly hit tho mnrk. I havo been
mistaken and I know for whom. Havo
you not soon n man in litis town bearing
a striking resemblanco to mo?"
"No," was the answer.
"Well, my friend, I have. Tho mo
ment I saw him I felt uncomfortable. I
had n presentiment of evil. You will
obligo mo by letting mo havo your bill.
I shall go to Paris to-night. If I stop
horo another day, my lifo Vhich I left
England to fortify, will bo snufi'ed out
like a candle."
Tho hotel keeper, seeing matters como
to it point that effected his interests, en
deavored to laugh down my doubts.
Ho nrguetl that tho ball I had received
in my lint might havo been destined
for a bird; that it was the shot of somo
wretched marksman, who might liavo
mistaken my hat for a crow.
"That may all bo very well," I an
swered, "but suffer mo to tell you that

A train left for Paris at t!:!T). It was
an express, ami I found it to bo duo nt
eight o'clock. I dispatched my port
manteau by a porter to tlio station, nnd
hnving twenly minutes before mo I sat
down to a light repast of cold fowl and
vln ordinaire. Tho position of my ta
blo enabled mo to get n view of tho
street. As the porter strodo away with
my luggage, I observed a man across
tho road accoit iiliu. In reply to what
was obviously a question, tlio porter,
with the gesticulation or a Frenchman,
pointed witli liis thumb to tlio hotel,
and vigorously nodded his head, Tho
man crossed over again to tho pave

tlio window, and abruptly turning on
his heel, walked on" in tlio direction ta

I thought nothing of this. Tho man,
I conjectured, probably wanted tho job
I had given to tlio porter, Ho was a
common looking fellow, dressed in
leather gaiters, a blouse, a slouched hat
and n belt. Thcro was nothing singular
in his faco. Ho was dark, witli a black

Having discharged my bill, I walked

tho man whom I had noticed speak to
tho porter, nud slnro into tho window
of my hotel.
A thrill passed ovev inc. My recent
cscapo had greatly shaken my nervous
system, and tho apparition of tho man
whom I felt I ought to suspect, bent n
chill through my blood. As a peasant,
which ho wns not expressed only iu
Ills dress, but lu his hands, wfiich were
dirty, rough nud horny what did ho
do in a first-class carriage? I would
havo given something to liavo chnnged

plxty miles had been accomplished.

Tlio man sat scrowed Into tho corner
away from mo, ltnmovnblo. Ho ap
peared to bo looking through tho win
dow at tho country as it whirled by;
but thcro was an abstract expression in
his gaze which indicated that ho saw
nothing. His arms woro folded upon
his breast, Though ho must havo been
conscious of my scrutiny, ho novor
turned Ills eyes upon mo. His lips I
saw wero tightly compressed, and ho
breathed slowly bnt deeply through
his nose, tho nostrils of which dilated
to tho steady respiration.
I began after a tlmo to regain my
composure. I struggled to laugh down
my fears. What, I thought, had I to
fear from n man I had never seen
who had never seen mo? Tho thing
was preposterous. 1 extracted a paper
from my pocket nnd commenced to
read. I might havo spoken to him, on
ly I Imagined that a man iu his situa
tion might havo been embarrassed by
my French, which I did not speak with
a good accent. Besides, thero was
something in lib Immobility that re
pelled all approach.
Half an hour passed away. All at
once, over tho top of my newspaper, I
saw him put Ids hand out of tho win
dow as if to open the door. I had no
tlmo to conjecture his intentions, when,
with a wild whistle, wo wero hurled
Into tho night of a long tunnel.
Tho rapid dlfappearanco of lhu Uuy
light made the oil lamp suspended in
tho carriage emit but tho dullo-it light
for somo minutes.
I laid tho newspaper down, with all
my old fears revived in me. I had
scarcely dono so when I saw tho figure
of a man riso in thecarriage. Ho leaped
over to wlicro I was seated. I saw tho
gleam of a knifo in tho air.
Mad with passion and surprise, I
grasped the dcacouding arm, A fuiious
determination to savo my lifo inspired
mo with tho strength of a giaut. Tlio
ferocity with which I seized Ids wrist
forced tho hand open. Tho knifo foil;

Ho seized mo by the collar and clung
with tho tenacity of a tiger. I heard
his snapping teeth, ns if ho wero endea
voring to bito. Wo swayed from ono
end of tho carriago to tho other. I felt
how weak ill-health had left mo, and
prayed to pass out into light, tiiat I
might tho better sco how to encounter
Suddonly I found myself swung round
with tremendous energy. I bounded
against a door which opened, und wo
both fell out oil to tho lino in tho very
centro of tho tunnel.
Tlio fall seemed to have stunnctl him,.'
for lie lell under me and remained for n
long tlmo motionless. For myself, I
received nn indescnbablo shock, such
as is experienced in n collision; but I
retained my senses. I heard tlio roar
of tlio train dying away iu tho distance;
I saw tlio red gleam fading Iiko tho oyo
of a dying demon,
I still clutched him by the tbroat.uor
did I daro relinquish it. My situation
was frightful. 1 suspected that a down
train would soon bo passing, and iu tiio
intenso blackness of (ho tunnel, I could
not see on which lino ho had fallen, I
would havo stretched forth my hand to
(jropo for tho rails; I might liavo found
a placo iu safety by Judging of tho dis
tance between (hem; but 1 felt tlio form
of my ussnllnnt commence to writhobo
neath me. His struggles grow fiercer.
Ho endeavored to rise, but with tho fu
ry of despair, I kept lilm pressed down
ouo hand on his throat and the other on
his breast. What I desired was to ren
der him insensible. I would then leavo
him in tho daikucss, nnd gropo my
wayas I could. .
It nuver occurred to mo at tho time
that thero was no need to make him in
sensible In order to cludo him. Tho
darkness would' liavo rendered my
presenco invislblo. But my mind was
hopelessly confused. I was breathing
sulphurous air, mado thick and difficult
by its blackness. My only thought was
to keep tho ruffian down. I was only
capable, Indeed, of tho thought.
A few minutes had elapsed wJicn I
heard a distant rumbling iiko np
preaching thunder. It increased. I
seemed to feel a wiud blowing against
my face. I tasted, too, a continual
draught of smoko aud steam.
I knew that n train was approaching,
nnd my hair lifted on my head. What
rails wero wo on ? This suspenso was
My assailant increased ids struggles.
Ho became furious. Ho was ovidently
fighting to throw mo down, nnd overiu
tho direction of that sldo of tho tunnel
nlong which camo tho roar of tho train.
I saw his object nnd madly pressed him.
His body wreathed frantically. Ho
twisted under mo 113 if ho revolved on
a pivot. Ho endeavored to shriek somo
words to mo, but my throttling grasp
mado liis voice no moro than n horrible
I saw tho red and green lights of tho
cngino approaching. They grow lu slzo
ami' lustre with a hideous rapidity.
Thcro was a ro.ir, a shower of dust, a
wind that struck mo down iiko a blow
from a strong man's fist. Then followed
tho dying rattle, ending inn dull and
1 roso to my feet. I crossed over to
the wall, and feeling .along it, took to
walking with all tho speed my sinking
frame would allow mo to put forth.
How long I walked I know not. My
passago seemed Interminable. Tho
damp of tlio wall, against which my
left hand pressed frozo my blood. Now
nnd then I stumbled over piles of rub
bish lying grouped against tho sldo, and
sometimes my grouping was bewildered
by coming across recesses Into which
my hands guided mo.
At length I saw n stur, tremulous,
glorious, iu tho distance. It was day
light tho aperture cf tho tunnel and
I pushed forward with invigorated spir
its, I neared It slowly. This star
seemed to maintain its inexorable ills
tanco, and would not get lnrgo. How
shall I tlo'jcribo my joy ns I regained

As I npproached nearer tho light n
cry escaped my Hps. My troiuers wero
covered with blood. Tlioro was ono en
sanguined lino, ns if a fountain of blood
had plunged upon mo.
I seated myself to recover my
strength. I could sco that 1 presented
a dismal nnd terrible spectacle. My
coat wns torn, my hands wero black
so, too, I Judged, was my fuco my col
lar had boon torn from me, and the skin
on tho ends of my fingers was lacerated.
After reposing myself I climbed tlio
bank, and perceived nt about tho dis
tanco of a mllo a station. I mado to
wards it nnd gained it. A railroad offi
cer, who was standing looking at two
children playing in a back garden, ut
tered a low cry of alarm as hospicd me.
I narrated my story to him nscoherent
ly as I could, and then sank to the
ground in a fainting condition.
Of what happened after this I liavo
no remembrance When I camo to my
senses I discovered that I had been
taken to tho house of the station master
and carefully tended by liis wife. From
liim I learned tho conclusion of this
singular incident of my lifo.
It seems that after my story had been
told, two men wero dlspatchod Into tho
tunnel In search of my assailant. They
discovered him lying doad, with both
legs cut clean ofr a littlo abovo tho
knees. They bore bin) to nn ndlacent
tl welling house, and nn Inquiry into his
death brought out such particulars as
nro easily explained. The man who so
closely resembled mo nt V had se

This Theodore, reckless now of lifo,
and resolutoly bent on vengeance, sworo
to kill tho seducer. Mistaking mo for
liis enemy, ho nttcraptcd to shoot mo.
Tills failing, ho liung about tho hotel,
armed with a stiletto, dotermincd to
stab mo whonovor I should appear in
tho street. Hearing, howovcr, that I
was about leaving for Paris, lie per
ceived a safer and belter menus of
prosecuting his designs, by stabbing me
in tho tunnel, through which ho knew
wo would pass, and then escaping in the
darkness. Reflection had obviously
taught him that revengo would bo nono
tho less sweet because it did not entail
his destruction by tho law.
Such Is this simplo but tragical story.
My prototype, who had been tho means
of twico Imperiling my life, I have
never seen since I confess to no wish
to seo him. It is bad enough to bear
tho brunt of ouo's own follies; It is alto
gether nilserabio. to suffer from tho fol
lies of others. Ever sinco tho occur
rence of this small cpisodo I have al
ways thought thero is a much wiser
providence manifested in tho dissimi
larity between man nnd man than our
philosophy suffers us to dream of.
