A Curious Little Story Written Before He
Became Famous : By Eraile Zela.
The evening shades were tailing ever a
deserted battle-field ; the victory was wen,
and four soldier camped in a lonely corner
were enjoying a tardy meal. Seated en the
grass in front of a large fire, before which
a few slices of lamb were cooking, the reel
light cast a strange shadow around, and
the pale flicker revealed many sleeping
their last sleep, The soldiers were laugh
ing boisterously, scarce noticing the glazed
eyes fixed en them. The day's work had
been severe, and the living were resting,
net knowing what the morrow might bring.
Death and night were spreading their wings
ever the bloodstained earth where terror
and silence were standing side by side.
Their feast ended, Gneuss began te sing ;
his deep voice sounded hearse as it fell en
the desolate and mournful air ; the song se
joyous en his lips echoed but a sob;
astonished at the strange accents, he began
singing with redoubled ardor, when a
piercing cry, issuing from the shadows,
disturbed the little group.
Gneuss was silent, and with a troubled
expression said te Elberg :
"Ge see which corpse is awakening."
Elberg went, armed with a sword and a
lighted torch. His companions could just
perceive the outline of his form as he bent
ever the dead, but he seen disappeared.
"Cleriau," said Gneuss, after a short
silence, "the wolves arc about te-night,
go leek for our friend."
And Clerian went and was in turn seen
lest in the darkness. Gneuss and Flem,
tired of watting for the return of the wan
derers, rolled themselves in their cloaks
and lay down by the smeuldering embers.
Their eyes were just closing, when the
same dreadful cry rent the air. Flem rose,
walked silently te the spot from whence
issued the sound, and was seen lest in the
Gneuss sprang te his feet, terrified at
the sight of the black wolf where the ago
nized gurgle rang. He threw a few dried
leaves en te the durning legs, hoping that
the brightness would dissipate his fears.
The flame rose, shedding its light in a
ghastly red circle en the ground ; in this
circle the shrubs looked unreal, and the
dead seemed reused by invisible hands.
Gneuss' terror increased ; he shook the
lighted branches and stamped out the
flames. As the thick shadows fell around
him once mere he shuddered, fearing te be
again overtaken by the death shout. He
could net rest. He sat down, then rose
again te call his companions, but the sound
of his own voice made him shrink and fear
that it had attracted the attention of the
Suddenly the moon appeared, and
Gneuss trembled te sec it shedding its pale
beams ever the battle-field. Night no
mere concealed its horrors. The plain,
strewn with dead and dying, seemed te
extend under the shroud of white light,
and this light seemed te give an earthly
touch te the scene. Gneuss, new thor
oughly reused, wondered whctlier he could
ascend the mountain and extinguish the
pale night torch. In his excitement he
thought the dead must rise and speak te
him new that they would sec him se plain
ly. Their perfect calm was terrible, and,
expecting every moment te be overtaken
by some dreadful catastrophe, he closed
his eyes. But as he was standing there a
strange heat touched his left heel. He
steeped, and saw a thin rivulet of bleed
flowing past his feet, leaping ever
the stones and causing a gay mur
mur. It came out of the shade, mean
dercd in the light of the pale moonbeams,
then fled and returned te the darkness like
a snake, in its tortuous windings. Gneuss
could net remove his eyes from the tide of
flowing bleed. He saw it swelling slowly,
and visibly getting larger ; the rivulet be
came a peaceful stream that a child could
have easily leaped ever ; the stream became
an increasing torrent, bursting ever the
ground and throwing up a red het foam en
all sides ; the torrent became an immense
The river was ever carrying away the
dead, but a cold shiver ran ever him as he
saw that it was supplied by the bleed
running from their wounds.
Gneuss kept moving backward from the
ever-increasing tide ; he could no longer
distinguish the opposite bank, and the val
ley was changed into a lake.
Suddenly he was stepped in his course ;
a cluster of rocks impeded his flight. He
seen felt the waves leaping round his
knees, and the dead drifting en, insulting
him in their course, each one of their
wounds becoming a bleed-stained mouth
te scoff at his fears. The dreaded sea,
ever increasing, new touched his waist.
He made a final effort, by clinging te the
creeks in the rock ; but alas ! the rock gave
way, and the tide covered his shoulders.
The moon, pale and sad, watched this sea
where her rays were net reflected. The
light floated heavenward; this immense
sheet of shadowy and clamorous bleed
seemed te be the entrance te some great
abyss. The waves, ever ascending, touched
and covered with their red foam the lips
of the tortured Gneuss.
At dawn Elberg returned ; he weke
Gneuss, whom he found sleepiug, with his
head pillowed en a stone.
"Friend," said he, "I was lest in the
shrubs, and sitting down te rest at the
feet of a tree, sleejp overtook me and my
soul was troubled by strange visions, the
remembrance of which disturbs waking
"The world was in its infancy ; the sky
was one eternal smile. Earth, a virgin
still, was basking in Slay's rich sunbeams ;
each blade of grass was ripening and sur
passing iu beauty the finest oaks ; the
trees were bursting into gorgeous leaves
and fruit totally unknown te me. The
sap was ever flowing through earth's deep
veins, and in its abundance drifted into the
recesses of rocks and gave them life.
' The honzen rose calm and smiling in
the distance. Nature, waking from its
sleep as a child, knelt and thanked Ged
for His light ; it spread out its arms to
ward heaven te give praise for its songs
and perfumes, se graceful and se sweet
that my mind was overwhelmed with the
divine impression. Earth, gentle and
prosperous, engendered without pain.
Fruit trees sprang out of every corner, the
reads were hedged with fields of ripe corn,
where, te-day, plains of thistles and thorns
would rise. The air was laden with the
weight of human sorrow. Ged was alone
working for His children.
"Man, like the birds, fed en feed sent
by Ged, gathering fruit en his way, drink
ing the water from the cooling spring and
sleeping under a shelter of leaves, whose
lips seemed te shudder at the sight of
flesh, net knowing the taste of bleed, rel
ishing only the dew sprinkled and sun
"Se man remained innocent, and his
very innocence anointed him king ever all
living things. Earth had assumed a new
touch of purity, and was cradled in su
preme peace. Birds fled no mere at the
sight of man te far-stretching forests ; all
Ged's creatures lived together under one
supreme law goodness.
"I was walking with them, enjoying
their perfect nature and feeling myself
growing stronger and better under their
united influence. I felt the delicious
breeze se pure after the laden breath of
" As the angel of my dreams watched
beside me, my eyes strayed te a forest. I
saw two men following a narrow, shady
path. The younger took the lead, singing
gayly and smiling at the beauty all around ;
new and again he turned te smile en his
companion, and the smile made me guess
that they were brothers. But the lips and
eyes of his companion did net respond ; he
followed the youth with a leek of hatred,
and hastened his step te keep up with him.
"I saw him cut down a branch and
make it into a rough club ; then he has
tened his step, fearing te lese sight of his
victim and hiding his weapon behind him.
The young man, who had been resting,
rose at his approach, and kissed him en
his forehead in welcome.
"They set out once again en their walk.
The day was drawing te a close. The
youth hurried en as he perceived in the
distance the sun gradually sinking behind
a hill. The man thought the youth was
trying te escape and lifted his club. His
young brother turned with a happy speech
en his lips, the club felled him te the
ground, crushing his face, from whence
gushed a steam of bleed.
"The first blade of grass it touched
shuddered and shook the drop en te its
mother earth ; earth trembled and was
startled ; a great cry of repugnance was
wrung from its breast, and the sand in the
read turned into a foaming red current.
" The scream from the wounded youth
seemed te scatter Ged's creatures far and
wide ; they fled into deep and dark places,
the strong attacking the weak. I saw them
in the gloom polishing their hooks and
sharpening their claws. The great work
of the brigandage of the creation has be
gun. "Then the eternal tide passed before
me. The sparrow flew at the swallow ; the
swallow in its turn seized the gnat, the
gnat sucked the bleed from the corpse.
Frem the worm te the lien was one great
insurrection. Nature, touched at this
sight was convulsed. The pure lines of
the horizon were effaced, the dawn and
sunset gave forth bleed-stained clouds ;
the rippling of the waters seemed one pre
longed sob and the leaves of the trees fell
faded te the ground ere they bloomed."
Scarcely had Elberg finished his tale
when Clerian appeared, and, seating him
self between his two companions, said te
' I knew net whether what I saw was a
reality or a dream ; the vision was se like
the truth, and truth se like a vision.
"My steps led me along a
read that encompassed the earth ;
it was studded with towns and
crowds followed its course. A stream of
red foam flowed onward, and my feet were
seen bleed-stained. Careworn, I wan
dered en amid this mass of human beings,
increasing as we went, and cruel sights
met my gaze. Fathers offering their
daughters in sacrifice te some avenging
god, the fair heads bent under the touch
of steel, and fainting at death's kiss.
Trembling maidens seeking death te
escape from hateful kisses, the tomb alone
shrouding their virginity. Women dving
under passionate caresses ; one crying bit
terly en the brink of the river that had
carried away her love ; another killed in
her lever's embrace ; the blew was a death
knell te him, and, locked in each ether's
arms, they seared heavenward.
"Men vainly seeking liberty and peace
that were unattainable here below. Every
where feet-prints of kings were marked
with a crimson blot. One walking en the
read stained by his brother's bleed ;
another enjoying his crown at the cost of
his subjects' lives ; and still another wad
ing in Ged's bleed ; and the people, stand
ing back and letting him pass en, would
say: 'A king has passed this way.'
"Priests massacred their victims, and,
open-mouthed ever their bleeding entrails,
pretended te read therein heaven's secrets,
Swords were hidden under their priestly
robes as they preached warfare in the
name of Ged, and at the sound of their
voices each man turned te slay his neigh
bor, thinking thereby te glorify his Maker.
The intoxicated mass of human beings
was hurrying hither and thither, a crushed
and seething crowd, brandishing their
naked weapons without mercy, and fell
ing innocent souls te the ground. A
craving for massacre fell en the raging
populace. Their cry rang furiously en the
still night air, until the last drop of bleed
was trampled from out the seething
wounds, and men cursed their victims for
dying se quickly.
" Earth drank unceasingly of the blood bleed
red stream, and seemed insatiable and
glutted ever the dregs.
"I hurried en, wishing te lese sight of
my fallen brothers, but the read lay dark
and interminable before me, while the
crimson tide drifted ever onward.- Dark
ness increased around me until I could
scarce perceive the barren plains,
the forsaken rocks, the mountains tower
ing te the skies, the valleys becoming great
gulfs, the stones turning into hillocks, and
the furrows into yawning abysses.
"Ne siga of life was there, no green
thing visible, nothing but rock, desolated
rock, whose summits, barely touched by
the wavering light, made the gloom ap
pear mere terrible in this valley where the
read led, and where my footsteps echoed
in the deathly silence.
" A sharp turn bieught me te a ghastly
sight. Four mountains leaning heavily
forward formed a basin. Their sides
straightfand stiff like the walls of a cyclo cycle
pean city, formed in their centre an im
mense well,and this well where the stream
terminated gradually increased the thick
and tranquil sea that rested se peacefully
in its bed of rocks, giving a purple hue te
"I knew that this abyss must receive
the bleed of the murdered ; that drops
from each wound had gene te swell the
surge of this flowing sea.
"Struck with terror,." continued
Clerian, "I stepped te. the brink, and saw
that the tide nearly reached the summit of
the rocks. A voice from the abyss spoke
te me : The river is ever increasing, and
will continue te increase until it reaches
its utmost heights ; then it will overflow
into the plains ; the mountains will give
way, and tired earth will seen be covered
and flooded. Newbern babes will be
drowned in their fathers' bleed. ' "
"The day is at hand, friends," said
Gneuss, "the waves were high last night."
The sun had risen ere Clerian had finish
ed his tale ; the trumpet was sounding te
rally the scattered troops.
The three soldiers arose, and, shoulder
ing their weapons, moved away, casting a
last lingering leek at the fire, whem Flem
appeared, feet-sore and travel-stained.
" Friends," said he " I knew net whence
I come, se rapid has been my flight. Leng
hours did I wander, till the noise of my
footsteps rocked me gently, and I fell
into a strange and restless sleep, never
slackening my speed till I came te a lonely
hill. The sun poured down upon it and
scorched the ground, while I hurried en te
attain the summit.
" And as T find a man annearad tniline-
I up the path ; a crown of thorns was en his
head, a heavy burden en his back, drops
of bleed were standing en his forehead and
his tottering steps could scarcely reach
" I erieved te see his agony, and I wait
ed for him ; he was carrying a cress, and I
saw by his crown and puiple robes that he
was a king, and 1 despised him, and re
joiced ever the sufferings.
' Soldiers followed him,hurrving his fal
tering steps. At last when they came te a
standstill en the highest pinnacle of the
mountain, they divested him of his gar
ments aud nailed him te the cursed tree.
The victim smiled sadly as he stretched
out his hands and crossed his feet ready
for the murderous deed. He turned his
face heavenward ; tears flowed slowly
down his cheeks, tears which he felt net,
and which were lest in the resigned smile
en his lips.
" The cress was seen erected, and then
the weight of the martyr's body enlarged
the wounds and broke his bones until he
shuddered again and again, and sought
strength from above.
"The sight riveted me te the spot, and
as I looked I said: 'That man is no
"Then, in my great pity, I cried te the
soldiers te kill him.
"A linnet perched en the cress was
singing a sad strain, that caught my ear
and made me think of the weeping virgin.
" 'Bleed is feeding the flame, ' said the
linnet, 'bleed colors the flowers, bleed
shades the clouds. I alighted en the earth
and my claws were stained, and as I
touched the trees my wings grew crimson.
"'I met a just man and followed him,
and having bathed in a pure spring, I
thought te find rest en his shoulder from
the wickedness of earth.
" 'My only song te-day is a sob en Gol
gotha's heights for one who carried me
safely through many dangers. He came
te purify, and he is doing it with the
crimson tide from his own wounds.
" 'O Jesus ! I cry, when shall I find Thy
brother te take me under his sheltering
wings. Ah ! when shall Thy son come te
wash my wings in Thy sprinkled bleed ?'
"The victim listened te the linnet's
song. Death was hovering ever him, but
his leek was one of gentle reproach, a
serene and hopeful smile passed ever his
"Then, with an unearthly shout, he
crave up the ghost; his head sank, the
linnet fled, the sky darkened and the earth
"I still ran en and en in my sleep ; dawn
had come, the valley awoke smiling under
their morning mists. The rain of the
preceding evening gave a fresh touch te
the green leaves, but the read was still
hedged with the thorns that had impeded
my course the night before. The same hard
stones stepped my way as the snakes
hissed out their warning note. The just
man's blot, d had flowed in vain for the
"The linnet passed en its way, telling
its tale as it went :
" 'In vain have I sought a cleaning
stream te wash my bleed stained wings.
Loek at earth! it is no better for the
sacrifice, and I have enlv te record the
burden of one mere murder.' "
The clarion new rang loudly.
"Friends," said Gneuss, "we are driv
ing a wicked trade ; our sleep is disturbed
by the phantoms of these we have slain.
"My rest, like yours, was disturbed by
a ghastly nightmare ; I have been mas
sacring for thirty years, and am tired of it.
Let us leave our brothers, and go into the
country together and till the ground, I
knew of a valley where the ploughs are
idle for want of hands."
" Such is our wish," replied his com
panions. The soldiers buried their weapons, bathed
themselves in the cooling stream, and arm
in arm they started en their new read.
