He and his brother were the last of an old and re I
spectable family, the members of which had lost their 1
substance during the civil wars, by their loyalty to
the house of Stewart. He was of a gloomy, reserver i
turn of mind—singularly handsome in face, and sa.
most gigantic in stature—but he wanted urbanity of
manner and goodness of expression. 1
Notwithstanding the guilt of his brother and the 1.
rumors of his own connection with the rebels, toyfatts.

trust him implicitly with all his affairs. 1

not allow of this interpretation, and gave out that i
his death was the resnit of an apoplectic fit. All I
know upon the subject is, that going one evening into t
the room where the corpse was laid, doting the ale
sense of the watch, I raised the napkin from time 1

their beauty of outline and pride of expression, the 1
complexion, naturally dark, had become qiiiit' e. taiall

I rode at a sharp pace, as I neared the gibbet, t

and fell harmlessly upon the chains round the felon,
and I, deprived of sons.: by senses in. isible 'power, fell

When I recovered myrcif it was broad daylight I
was lying beneath a gibbet, the corpse swung slowly
in the wind above my heed, but my horse was gone.
I arose and walked quickly home. As I reached the •
gate 1 met two of my father's servants coming in search
of me; they had found my horse fastened to the stable
door, and bearing marks of having been hard ridden.
Io answer to their inquiries, 1 made some excuse
about my horse has ing thrown me and that I had been
stunned by the fail. Charging them not to mention
the circumstance to my father, I entered the hall. I .

"George," I said, "you love a jest; but this is none.
Will you ride with me to-morrow night, at the same
hour, and in the same direction?"
"That will I, most valiant Tom," laughed Georges
"and if this black man be civil, I will ask him to sup.
"George," said I, solemnly, " yon will not laugh la
this way at this time to-morrow.'
This redoubled his mirth; however, he promised to
keep my adventure secret. We agreed to dine togeth
er at the neighboring town, and to pass across the moor
in the same dire ction, and at the same hour, as I had
done the night previous.
Accordinelv twelve o'clock found us turning from
the highway on to the path over the common;before
doing so, we looked searchingly in every direction, but
saw signs of nothing living; yet we had not been upon
the moor one minute, when, on again looking back,
we perceived a tall black figure following us, tarrying
on his shoulder a long staff.
"There he is, George, with the identical hook."
"There surely is some one. Tom! Now let es give
him some exercise;" and put spurs to our horses.
Five minutes at a hand gallop brought us to the gib

hand on Chester's rein. he said.: "You ride hard, gen

"We ride apace, old boy; but you fly."

man, as he commenced the work of hooking down

Some time elapsed before George reeovered his
