Volume 4,
In ancient times there Jived,at Manheim,
a young man .called Otto,- who was brave
and intelligent,- but- incapable of bridling
ta, desires. When he wished for, any*
thing he spared ho effort to obtain it } and
|his •passims were like the storm winds
which cress rivers, valleys, and moun
tains crushing everything ih their passage.
T red of!he quiet life he*led at Manheim,
he one day formed a plan to set out on a
long journey* at the end of which hehoped
to find fortune and happiness. nso *
quontly ho put.his best clothes in a bundle,
placed in his girdle all the money he pos
sessed, and started, without knowing
whither he was going. After walking sev
eral days, fie found himself at the entrance
of a forest, which extended as far as the
eye could reach. Three travellers had
stopped here, and seemed, like himself, to
be preparing to cross it. One was a tall,
haugbtv woman, with a threatening mein,
holding in her hand a javelin ; the second
ia young girl, half asleep, reclining ran
tchariot drawn by four .oxen ; and the
third an old woman in rags and with a
haggard air. Otto saluted them inqui
ring whether they were acquainted with
theterest; they replied in the affirmative,
ho asked permission to accompany them,
that ho might not lose his way. All three
consented and they set out. The young
roan soon perceived that his companions
possessed supernatural powersho
was not afraid, and continued his walk
conversing with the three strangers.
They had already pursued for several,
hours the path marked out among the trees
when the sound of n horse’s footsteps was (
heard behind them. Otto' turned and rcog
nized a citizen of Manheim, who hud al
ways been bis greatest enemy, and whom
hb had hated for many years. The cit
izen overtook the foot passengers, smiled
insolently and went on. Otto became
very angry. “I would give all I possess,

revenge myself on the pride and haughU

cd*tho young man had scarcely finished
'sneaking, when the transformation prom
ised by his companion took place, and jie
found himself blind of an eye. He was
at first a little surprised, but consoled him

of his enemy. Meanwhile, they contin
