"Every ono has n lucky number," said tho old gentlemau. "Mlno Is 21 20 might lmvo been, would havo been, an unlucky n number for me. Yet I didn't know It, both wore painted In blank letters on a white oval -2120. Not much difference, you see, very like Indeed; and yet, because I chose the number without a flourish and n long leg, I am hero to-day, and havo had a long and happy life. I should have been tho occupant of a suicide's grave ever so many years ago had I chosen 201" "I rtnlly can't understand," said I. " Was It a lottery, or a draft, a con scription, or what? Was It n game was It?" "It was tho number on n door," said tho old gentleman. " Walt a minute ; I'll tell you nil about It : "I was very much In love. Every body Is at somo time In his life. At twenty-five I was desperate. Talk about Romeo. He was nothing compared to me. I nm not ashamed of It. She was a worthy object not only because she was' beautiful, but she was good nnd amiable, nnd such n singer she sang soprano in the choir. And I've heard '. there, reallV nil nilt-el nn llmrnO' tslion up there?' when she sang her part nlone. Clear and sweet and flute-like her voice was. I've never heard Its equal " Well, I loved her, and thought she liked me; hut I wasn't sure. I courted her a good while, but she. was shy as any bird, and I couldn't satisfy myself as to her feelings. So I made up my mind to ask her and know for certain, Some old poet says : Ho cltlter fears Ills fato too much, Or Ills deserts arc smnll, who fours to put It to tho touch. And win or lose It nil.' "I agreed with him; and ono even lng as I walked home from a little par ty where wo had met, with her on my arm, I stopped under a great willow tree, and took her hand in mlno and said " Jessie, I lovo you better than my life will you marry me?" I waited an answer; she gnve none. " Jessie," I said, "won't you speak to me?" Then she did speak "No-oh, dear, no 1" I offered her my arm again, and took her homo without a word. She had told mo before that she should start with tho dawn to visit an aunt In Now York; but I did not even say good-bye at the door. I bowed; that was all. Then, when she was out of .sight, and I stood alone In the village street, I folt des perate enough to kill myself, " What have I dono to have so cold a refusal ? .Why should she scorn tne so? 'Oh, dear, no I'" I grew furious ns I repeated the words, Yet It stung me all tho same. I tossed from side to side on my bed all night, nnd I thought I could enduro It no long- cr. But I would not pain and disgrace my respected relatives by committing suicide In the place wherein they dwelt and were well known and thouuht of I would go to Now York oven then a very largo city and, seeking some hotel, register an assumed namo, and, retiring at night with a bottle of laud anum and a brace of pistols, awako no mote, and so be rid of misery. I ar ranged my affairs to tbe best of my ability, and received an Imaginary let ter from a friend In Now York, request Ingjmy presence ou a matter of busi ness. I burdened myself with no un necessary luggage. What did an "un known suicide" want of another coat aud a change of linen? 1 kissed my mother and sister, and stat tied my grandmother by au embrace, and started upon what I mentally called my last Journey, with a determined rpirlt. There was a certain hotel to which msny ot the people of our vlllase wero in the habit of going. This I avoided. Another chosen at a hazard, seemed to be better. Thither I walked, deter mined to leave no traco of my destina tion to those who knew me no clew to my ludentlty to those who should find me dead. I had no mark upon my clothing, no card, paper or letter with roe. I had torn the hatter's mark from my beaver. As I asceuded the hotel steps I felt, so to Bpeak, like one golug to bis fune ral. A grinning waiter bowed before me. A peit clerk lifted up bis head and star ted. I was an ordinary traveler to thorn that was evldeut. It was late In the evening. The place wore an air of repose. Laughter and n faint chink of glasses In nn Inner ap- partment told ot some convlvnllty. Ono old man read hU newspaper beforo tho fire. Nothing elso was astir. I nsked for a room. The clerk nod ded. "Do you care what floor?" ho ask ed, I shook my head. "iVumber twonty.nlne Is empty," he said, and tossed a key to tbo waller, whom I followed at once. Wo reached the room by two flights ot stairs. At the door the waiter paus ed. "Thought he said twenty-nine," he muttered. "The key is twenty-one." "Then open twenty-one with It," I said, "I don't care for the number of the room." "No, sir to bo sure, sir," said tho waiter, nnd passed along a few steps further. "Twenty-one," hesald, and unlocked a door and pushed It open. "Shall I bring you anything, sir?" he asked. I answered No, and he lelftme, have- Ing put tho candle on my bureau. The hour lias come. As I shut the door a heavy sigh escaped u.e. Alast that life had become so woful a thing to mo that I should desire to be rid of It. In the dim light of one candle I paced the floor and thought bitterly of tbo girl I loved so dearly. It was In the days of curtain beds. The bed ln this room was hung with dark chintz: so wero tho window?. Over tho bureau was hung a looking glass, with a portrait of a lady In puff ed sleoves and high comb, at the top, by way of ornament. There were four stuffed chairs, and a brass shovl and tongs stood guard besides the grato. I fancied myself lying dead on tbe bed amidst all these belongings and felt sor ry for myself. Then 1 took my pistols from my portmanteau, and leaving tho door unlocked, for why should I put the landlord to the tmublo of breaking It open. I lay down on tho bed, drew tho curtains, took a pistol in each hand, and, ns true as I now speak to you, had the muzzle ot each to a temple, when some one opened tho door, "There now, Jessie," said a voice. I told you you didn't lock It." "I dirt," said another voice, "and sent the key to the offlco by tbe cham ber maid." I laid tho pistols down and peeped through tho curtulns. There were two ladies In the room. One, an old lady In n brown Irontof false curls, the other my cruel lady-lovo Jessie Grey. Fora moment I fancied I must bo dream ing. "Sure It's tho right number?" asked Jessie. . "Twenty-one yes," said tho other. And here Is my band-box. Oh, dear! I'm sleepy. "I am not," said Jessie. "I wish I was, aunt." "You didn't sleep a wink last night,1" said tho aunt. "Nor you haven't eat en your meals to-day. You'll go Into a decline If you go on that way, I'll seo Dr. Black about you to-morrow. "I don't want Dr. Black to be called," sighed Jessie. I'd rather die." "What's the matter?" cried the old lady. "You are not yourself. You don't eat or sleep, and cry perpetually. What alls you? "I am miserable," said Jessie. "Why?" cried her aunt. "Oh, aunt," said Jessie, "It'sallyour fault. You told roe over and over again that a girl must never Jump at an oiler; that a man must be refused at least ouce, or he'd not value a glrll And 1 Jiked him so! And, oht he liked me I And when he asked me I felt so glad! I said, Oh; dear, not and be left mo without a word. And I'm so sorry! oh, sorryl because I loved blm, aunt." "You little goose I" cried tbe old lady. As for me, you can fancy how I felt. I had no thought of sulcldo now. My desire was to live and ask that question over again, I pocketed my pistols and crept down on the other side of the bed. I stepped toward tho bureau and blvw out tbe candle. The faint red light of tbe Are was still In the room. As I dashed out ot tbe door. I heard two fe male screams, but I escaped In safety. "I met the waiter on the stairs. "Found out the mistake, sir," "I'm very glad that Is, It don't matter. Here H something for your trouble, and 1 gave hlra.a five dollar bill. He said, "I tbank ye, sir;" but I saw that he thought roe crazy. He was con firmed In his opinion when' as I pasted to the door of my room, I cried: "Heaven bless tweuty-one? It's a lucky uuuiberl" But 1 never was saner than I was then, nor half so happy. Of cour-e, I proposed to Jessie tho very next day, aud I need not tell yon her answer was uot "O, dear, no;" and that's why I call tww.ty-ono my lucky number."
