II V JULIAN IIAWTItOENE
I throw myself down lu tho cool, deep
tliitctl ftrr.sd of a scipicalcrcd aorjro.
Ov"rlitiil llio branches of a KiKaiilie
oil: tree, veiled by daticitis leaved,
rustled mid murmured soothingly ; and
down (lie precipitous slopo lu front
leaped ind foamed atumultuom brook,
whoso voleo mingled harmoniously
with tho whispering of tho oak. I could
tlmost beliove, as I closed my cyca,
hat some one was talking in low, melo
Tho brook, aitur Lurrying tiirough a
docp, narrow cleft in tho rldgcoftlio
opposing slope, e.uno with full force
down upon a hugo wcleir-whcel. Tho
wheel was ovidentlyan uiiliquo; ninny
years had jmoscd siuoo It had worked
tho buy mill, of which a disjointed
heap of foundation stoneinlono remain
ed. H;was tangled over with creeping
vinc3 and brambles, and adorned with
moist ferns and green moss ; tho rank
grass bent over tho tail-raco as if peer
ing after somo concealed mystery. Na
turo seemed to havo mado this instru
ment of man's necessities into a uniipio
plaything for herself. Or perhaps, 1
mused, this is tho whcol of Fortune,
who, wearying of It, has left it hero in
the caro of Nature, amidst tlio sedgo
and spray of tho water fall, and hasgono
on her way without it. So wo aro.
to luivo no up3 and downs in life here
after all ono smooth, level plain, un
checked by darkness and uuchocred by
light. All, no! como back, fair goddess;
for thy fickleness is tho lifo blood of
our truth ! Como back oncomoro to this
shady, sunny gorge, and wrest thy
wheel from tho clinging grasp of vines
anil brambles, tho arms with which
reluctant Naluro strives to hold it back I
bring It out onco again upon tho dusty
road, and turn itasyou go.lcstthoslug
gish hearts of men should coa30 to beat,
and they forget to draw tho very breath
of life, and their souls, torpid nnd un
inspired, grovel upon tlio earth, nor
over sttivo to climb ubovo themselves!
How much of joy and grief, of lifo nnd
death, havo clustered round tho turning
of that whcol, oven na tho ferns aud
vines cluster around It now! Methlnks
oven yet I feel the Inlluenco upon me.
"Perhaps thcro may bo moro truth
than poetry In your remarks," observ

"And how does that concern tho mat-

dream, I could not speak, nor even lift
my head lo question my companion
with my eyes. Tho voico continued :

in reality a watorwileh, aud w ould ono

In prool of tills assortion ho was wont
to prodttco a sort of chain or necklace,

which ho declared sho had mado for

tue of tiio charmed necklace, or, which
amounted lo tlio samo thing, becauso
all tho neighborhood was captivated by
thelittlo wator witch. And sho testified
all a daughter's affection for him, nnd,
for a season all went well."
In speaking of this young girl tho
tones of my companion's voico had
floivcd along in harmonious cadences,

personality had so inspired his nntiquo
imagination as to throw a faded ray of
sunlight into his shadowy heart. Rut

''Tho young girl, who, standing

bitter as tho dry eyes of tho old man.
"Thereafter tlio miller's household
was as gloomy as ilheroloforo had been
cheerful. Tlio son camo no moro to tho
mill, and tho girl moved about sllont
nnd palo-faced. Rutonoday tho miller,
who watched hor closely, saw on un
wonted Hush on her cheeks, and sho
seemed pro-occupied and abstracted.
The samo afternoon, as ho was standing
by tho wheel, ho looked upward toward
tlio fall, and saw her standing on tho
plank brldgo and waving her handker
chief as if to ono at n distnnco. And
from her handkerchief, as sho waved it,
lio saw fall a small fold of whllo paper.
It dropped into tho stream, hurried
down to tlio wheel, which caught It and
whirled it round as if in triumph, and
cast it in llio foam at his fcot. Ho pick
ed it up nud unfolded It. Itwasauoto
from his son lo tho girl, bidding hor
wait for him that night by tho mill
wheel, and that ho would tako her whero
thoy would bo married and happy. As
ho read, an ovll smllo broko out upon
ids face. When ho had finished it ho
wont slowly into tho liouso, and sat
down at his tablo and rested his head
on his hands nnd thought. At last nu
Idea scorned tostrlko him. Ho got up
and began lo movenboul t ho houso,look
ing behind tho doors, iu out and of tho
liouso corners, nud on high sholvos; ho
was searching for something ovldcntly.
After awhllo ho fouud what he sought
nothing but n rusty old handsaw. Ho
took it into ills chamber, nnd sharpen
ed and oiled it.
"Nouo of tlio threo slept that night.
Tho mill was not stopped offa3 usual at

out quietly by himself, empty-handed,
to nil appearances; but ho carried somo

Tho girl took tho opportunity to collect
together whatovor belongod to her and
pack it into a small bundlo; then sho
sat down by tho window and waited.
Once, through tlio din of tho mill-wheel,
sho thought sho heard n grating sound,
faint but sharp, coming npparontly from
tho direction of tho plank brldgo ovor
tho fall j but It soou cca30d and was for
gotten. Not long after tho miller return
ed, palo aud haggard, and crept siloutly
Into his room. A great tremor had
taken possession of him ; ho shuddorod
porpctually from head to foot, nud his
very teeth chaltored. Ho tried to llo

tho room uneasily, occasionally pans

hoar tho rush of tho fall, and saw tho

moment thoy would bo together ; his
foot was on tho plank brldgo.
"At that moment tho girl started up
from tlio bench, nnd her heart censed to
beat ; sho stood rigid, hor oyes pcorlug
through tho night. Tho miller, lu his
room, wns sitting with a nccklaco of
shells lu his hands ; ho was ou (ho point
of raising It to his litis. Ho dropped It
and fell lo tho floor, and tried to stop
Ills oans In vain.
"For a lorrlblo cry broko upon tho
darkness, making Ilnolf hoard above tho
din of tlio wheel nnd llio dash of tho
wator fall. Ero tho cry was lialf uttorod,
howovor,It stopped tmddonly,and novor

surely, was coming down tho fall-n

hurrying onward and downward In mad
hasto n dark, heavy object, with loos
oncd limbs and white, gleaming face;
only that In tho tern pio was a Jagged,
bleeding hole, whero it had struck n
rock. Down it camo, faslor nnd faster;
tho girl saw it coming, nnd stood bolow
waiting for it. Now, with n rush, It
camo upon tho wheel, and tho wheel
caught it, nnd whirled It round, and
ground It down, and broko it, scream
ing nil tho whllo with devilish glee.
"Tho old man hadcroptout, and saw
the broken body boneath tho wheel,
and tho foam In tho tail-race red with
blood. Then, for tho first tlmo it seem
ed ns though tlio wheel spoko to him,
roltcrnting over and over again, with
(ho malico of a fiend, 'You havo your
wish I you havo your wish I you have
your wish !' Yes, his wish.
"Tho girl, meanwhile, stood motion
less and;sllent. Shodld notscream; thcro
were no tears iu her oyes ; but nt length
sho laughed softly to herself.
' "I told him I'd go back when ho
camo for mo ovor tho fall,' said she.
'Now ho has come, and I must keep my
promise.' Then, without looking at tho
old man, who stood stricken with a
double horror, sho glided swiftly nway,
and up tho steep pathway, aud so dis
appeared forovcr ; no ono saw her again.
Something, indeed, that had belonged
to her, was found afterward lying at tho
bottom of thocloar pool, with uplurnod
face ; but tho bright young girl never
returned to claim it.
"Littlo elso was ever found. What
othor mysteries tho brook knew, it bab
bled only to tho river, which in turn,
confided thorn to tho ocean, nnd that
was tho end. Only, tho next morning,
a Illtlo boy playing on the river-bank
bolow, found n flno largo pieco of plank
lying In tho drift, ono end of which had
been freshly sawed almo3t off, and then
broken. It was a prize ! Ho dragged It
to the neighboring frog pond, and fitted
it up as a raft, on which lio ferried him
self across. How should ho know that
a human boing had crossed nil tlio wny
over fromtimoto cternilyon thntpinuk

was quite nlono except for tho mill
wheel. "Everybody pitied him such a lorrl
blo misfortune I nnd his mind scorned
all'cclcd. Ho seldom spoko lo any ono,
aud wltlidrow himsolf gouorally from

been soon sitting on tlio bench near tho
raill-wlioei, which ho nlwnys kopt
going, talking to it in n wild random
way, uud moaning and cursing. Ever
and anon tho wheel would scorn to
answer him with a quivering scream,
but whether of rago, terror, or laughter,
none could tell. That, of course, was bo-
caii30 tho axlo was rusty, and creaked.
And though tho old man spent a gront
deal of his tlmo in oihug aud cleaning
tho machinery, somehow ho novcr
seemed nblo to get at that particular
part whercfrom tho screaming came.
Indeed, to judgo from tho way ho went
to work, he wa3 not vory sanguine of
his success; but ho eoemcd resolved
novcr to glvo it up. No wonder; for a
moro unearthly sound could not well
bo imagined. Tho farmers going homo

Just a year from tho time tho tragedy

But changed or not tho wheel had not
