that afternoon .I concluded to relieve
myself then and forever. To say that
Ispoiled.s. quire of 'cream-laid' is to
make a moderate estimate; finally I pio
&iced a missive which I flatter myself
would have done credit to any young
man of twenty-twounder similar cir
camstances.i It was an epistle to Julia,
telling=her of my deep, my abiding love,
of my prospects in life, of my resolve
to win fOrtune and renOwn. far her sake.
In short, I told her- all my hopes and
fears; begged her in case she could at
all reciprocate my emotions, not to di
vulge to mortal soul what had passed
between us; and concluding by implor•
ing her to pen me a line . in reply.
Carefully folding my letter.. and
directing the envelope / in my besthand
to Miss Julia Darley, I watched an op
portunity,,slipped it tinder her door,
and flew up four steps at a time.
Unluckily for me, I rim into a nor-

leaped ever the Lasater. She'entered

Before my bead was raised from the
interesting survey I heard a shrill voice,
from the ball above, exclaim.
'oh mercy I There be is I Don't

into your room for Heaven's sake!'
This was pleasant, to" say the least.
However, I obeyed orders, and resumed
my seat at the window. -
Presently the very air seemed thrill

I saw something white thnist nervously
under my door. It was 'a,ifolded piece

\IN MY ENEMYPS HOUSE.
A RIISSUN STORY.
-Traveling once near Moscow I chanc
ed to meet N. Petrovich, an old college
chum.. After some merry talk over oar
scrapes and adventures of former days
ho entreatd me to accompany him to
the house* his friend, Baron Staloff,
at a place about ten miles distant, ad
ding by way of persuasiOn: 'Staloff is
a fine, open-hearted, generous, hospit
able felloW, just such a. man as., you
would likOo meet;' he told me to bring
with me as many friends as possible.
Come' we *ill be - there about a week. I
can promise you a very agreeable visit.'
Although a stranger to the 881201, as
1 then thought, I yielded to my friend's
request, and we took the afternoon
