11Y WIl. 1,1AM SAWYP.lt,
Tlio niniiey came to mo under tlio will of
old Itodney Gauiitlctt. Kverybody in the
city know him in his lifetime knew him as
a shrewd, active, hot-tempered man, and
called him "old," while ho was yet in his
pi into. As far as memory goes hack, he
justified the epithet, lie, looked old, with
ered, di it'll up, yet there was plenty of life
in him, as those found who crossed his path,
or tried to overreach him in tho biuiness
transaction!) that took him every day into
tlie thief places of resort in the city.
1 was only, as I knew (juito soon enough,
the child of an old friend one Col. Antho

Having so adopted mo ho did his duty by
me. All admitted that; tho praise, of him

yielded, foot by fool, to encroachments on
all sides, until it was fairly bricked in, and
utleily lost to public gaze. It could only
be reached by means of passngo through

Old IJodney Gauntlett's own rooms were
on tho ground floor; they were liko dun
germs hut he never saw them so. All tho
year round he breakfasted and dined by
candle light; yellow wax-lights, iu old
plated candelabra, red as copper, were al
ways lit for him night and morning. That
was his fancy, and liko all his other habits,
had taken firm root in him
l!iidget and 1 lived upstairs. Hridgot, by
Iho way, was our one domestic housekeep
er, nurse, and general servant in one. She,
was as old as her master, lirhlgct was my
good friend and almost solo companion.
If I could have wished her other than she
was, it would have been in respect ol her
sen.-o of Ilodiiey Claupllelt's goodness to
mc, and of Iho hard inea-me of gratitude
she thought proper to exact from my un

As 1 was saying, our rooms were up stairs;
they were three, in number, and formed tho

Tho smaller room, iu which I lived, was
liko a room borrowed fiom Iho last century.
Tho fiirniliiio was iu keeping; tables with
curved legs and brass handles and fittings ;
chairs with oval backs and striped moreen
cushions ; eicriloires with draws, and Intll
anjais all the.-o were conspicuous. Hut
most conspicuous of all was a Japanese- cab
inet, very largo and cumbrous, black as
ebony, with quaint figures iu gold and dead
colors, lu slight relief. It must once have
been very cosily ; but was now out of re

evening, and I am close to tho window,
straining my eyes over a book Iu tho failing
light. Tho book touches mo deeply, and 1
am conscious that iny eyelids are ted, nnd
that there are tears on my checks. While
I am thus absorbed, tlio door opens, nnd
Hridgct enters, bearing in ouo hand one of
tho old plated catidclfibrrt with ax lights
flaring In It, and so preceding two other
persons. Ouo is Kodncy Oaimtlclt hlmelf;
tho other a stranger a fine, tall, square
shouldered man, with nn olive face, black
eyes, nnd shining white teeth, As I give a
icared look, nnd toss back my cumbrous hair
ll is Sir, Gnunllctt who says, pointing to the
stranger, "Sir. Hugh Dinisdalc, my dear, nn
esteemed friend of mine."
Tlio night's introduction was, as I have
said, followed by many a visit on the part
of Sir. Hugh Dimsdalc. U was not long
before he declated liiuncif my devoted ad
inircr, and begged me to regard him as n
suitor for my hand. Sly patron, too, hinted
as delicately as ho could that such an ar
rangement would bo gratifying to him, As
for Hridgot, Bhe declared him to bo the finct
gentleman in iho whole world, and was per
petually legardlng mo with her head on one
side and her hands raised in a sort of cc
stacy of admiration at my good fortune,
Hut I received him coldly; 1 could not
like him; his coming chilled my heart.
Tlio touch of ins hand distressed mo so that
I dreamed of it iu tho night, nnd woko up
with a shudder,
Still ho came and came. 1 had a suspi
cion that ho knew how 1 loathed him, and
gloried iu his power to inflict tho torture of
his presence on mc ; gloried still more in
suggesting a further horror.
"Am 1 never to prove my love by shott
ing how happy I can mako you ?" lie would
"f am very happy," would bo my cold
"Hut as my wife? Ah, if wo could only
realio tho future I have planned!"
"The present amply contents mo."
So it went on.
At last he lost all patience, and grew
fairly angry with mc. Whenever wo met,
his words were harsh and his looks threat
ening. I could not endure this, and in one
passionato outburst bade him begono and
trouble me no further,
"I will never be your wife," 1 said. I
will dio firt. 1 halo vou. Leave ino I"
Ho'obeycd ; but there was a malignant
glitter in his eyes as ho strodo from tho
room, and I saw that lie bit his thin lips to
bleeding to keep in the words with which
ho would have cursed me.
For more than a month I saw him no
more. 11ns might liavo surprised mc, out
during tho latter part of that time I had no
leisure to give a thought to him. Sly bene
factor was taken ill. It was tho winter
time, and he was seized with a slight cold,
of which ho took no heed untjl inflamma
tion followed, and ho was soon really ill.
lCvcn then he would not deem himself an
invalid, would not seo a doctor, or givo up
bis daily pursuits. Within a week ho was
worn to a shadow ; his eyes sank, his
shoulders rounded, and a cough tore fiercely
it his lungs. 1 was terrified, but ho only
laughed at my fears, and declared that bo
would soon lie better.
On the eighth night of his illness I sat
late in my room. When I at length started,
in out of a vision, I was conscious of a chil
liness, and of its being very Into. I put my
hand to my waist for my watch. It wanted
throe minutes to two o'clock. W.is that
right by the clock on tlio mautlcpieco ? I
asked nivself. Instinctively I looked up.
Tho leaning oval glass reflected mo as i
sit. I saw my own I.ice ami liguro ; and I
saw more. There was another faco looking
over my shoulder another figure standing
at inv back I

There was no answer.
I half rose.
As I did fo, tlie form receded from me.
It went slowly, with tlio sliullling gait of an
enfeebled man. The face was toward nic
even when there was tho widtli of the roo.n
between in. Then it turned away, it
turned toward the Japanese cabinet, and I
saw an uplifted forefinger beckoning me to
observe what followed. Tho movement was
so natural, so real, that it seared away
tho fears which were beginning to paralyze

forward as I spoke. "Or if yon are too

I could catch tho expression of the eyes,
and followed them. They seemed lo single
out a spot a rosebud iu tho lloiver pattern
of tho cabinet and then tho pointing lin
ger went straight to the spot.
Unless 1 dreamed, tlio bud yielded under
the pressure of tho finger-tip.
1 saw it sink am! spring back to its place.
Then utmost instantly a long narrow panel
fell out and dropped on tho ground.
"You wish to show mo tlio secret of this?"

1 kept my own cotnucl. I said nothing
tn Hridgct; nothing to tlio Doctor when he
came, hi the mean time I formed this furth
er resolution I would say nothing unless my
inipiessions received some confirmation
through subsequent events. One such con
firmation they did receive it was a very
startling one. When Kodncy Gauntlett's
will came to bo read, it was found that his
fortune exceeded all belief. Ho had been
money-grubbing and speculating all his life,
but no one suspected that he had died worth
three millions of money! His will dis
closed that fact for the first time. When I
heard the words I fainted. Here was a cor
roboration of what f had discovered in my
dream, or whatever it was, s strong that it
utterly oicrpotvered me. Unless I had read
it in tho paper f took from tlio Japanese
cabinet, how could I have thought of that
sum? Such a thing was beyond coinci
dence, and when I camo to myself, I ea
gerly demanded a sight of tlio will. It was
handed to me, and onu glance dispelled all
my illusions. It was not written on the
paper I had seen, and it contained no men
tion of my lclationdiip to the testator. Sly
name was there, but only for an annuity of
three hundred pounds for life. Tho bulk of
the vast fortuno was left in other ways, a
very large slice falling to the share of the

Time passed on. 1 had quilted the old

Dimsdalc had gone 1 know not where to
the Indies I had lieard,but neither knew nor
cared. 1 was iccciving my annuity, nnd
enjoying a simple country life, over which
the shadows of tho past fell lightly, In the
irocc.-s of time I had almost persuaded my
self out of the reality of what I had long
held as tlio mystery of my life.
Ono winter evening an adventure occurred
I was returning homo from a long walk.
Tired and anxious to reach my cottage be
foro dark, 1 took a short cut through tho
field adjoining a farm. I u the field were
several stacks of hay and corn, and as I
passed these I saw that a group of persons
evidently from tho farm itself, were bending
over some object lying on the ground. Sly
curiosity was aroused. I quitted tho path,
and went toward them. As they moved
aside on my drawing near, I saw that it was
a man who was tlio object of their attention
a squalid man iu the garti of a beggar.
Ho was ill, haggard, starving yet 1 could
not mistake that face.
"Hugh Dimsdalc !" I exclaimed aloud
Ho shuddered as lie lay, then looked up
feebly, shading bis eyes with a tremulous
hand. With that hand he then beckoned n e
to his side. Too weak to speak aloud, it
as only by thawing my car towards his
mouth that he could make mo understand
what he had to say. It took this form :
