fill many of these stately columns. But, leav
ing-these stories for the amusement of the good
villagers, we, by the power in us invested, take
a grand leap of fifty years, and accompany the
present history in its majestic course.
The fifty years rolled around, and found our
Carl as hale and hearty an old man as you
would encounter in a day's journey. The last
day of the last year had come. It was winter.
Never was seen before such a comfortable
room, such a' roaring fire, such a jug of punch
sinving. mellow, glees on the hob, or such a
fine`. old gentleman, enjoying all these good
things, as were within the walls of Carl-Tods
chalk's house.on that bitter December day.—
As Carl lifted the jug from the fire, and pour•
ed some of the rich, bubbling liquid into a
glass; a knock at the door caused him to pause
for an instant.
"Dear me," he said, pouring the punch from
one glass to another to cool. it, "who on. earth
pays me a visit on such a day as this ?"
Alan form, enveloped in a long black man
tle, stood in the doorway. In his right hand
he leld a keen glittering. sword. In his lett
hand was an hour glass, in the top of which,
Carl noticed,;but a few sands reniained..
"My name," said the gloomy. stranger, "is
. "You—you—come very suddenly," stam
mered Carl. •
"Many men have told me that ; doubtless
many will repeat it," his visitor answered,
seating himself in a chair.
"Yes," said Carl, into whose mind a peculiar
,suddenly, flashed. "I will be
ready in a moment," he added, and then began
heaping wood on the fire. . i '
"Why do you, do that ?" asked the stranger.
"It is already too hot."
"I,t will be bott er• presently, I promise you,"
replied . Carl,,pitel}ing on log after log, till the
fire snapped and snarled, and roared, as though
it were a pack of hungry wolves pursuing
some wretched-traveler. -
"The fire scorching me ! Let me up. Ha!
%Oat, is this?"
"I'll serve you for this,"'cried Death, after
a fruitless attempt to release himself.
"Will you ?" qnoth Carl. "We'll see

"Stoii, stop," roared the prisoner in the
chair; "would you roast me like a gtiose
"Not if yiu talk in a reasonable Way. But
if you` threaten any more, I will make the fire
still hotter. I have a small request, and if
you grant it, you shall instantly be set at lib
"Yes, yes—but draw the chair back a little.
Oh how hot."
Carl approached, and drew the chair back a
few inches. This very cautiously, lest Death
might catch him and throw him into the fire,
or do him other bodily harm.
"You must know," said Carl, "that though
I have lived a long while, I still wish to spend
a few' more years in this cottage. Now, it
wouldn't make any sort of difference to you
were you to let me off for—well, say ten
"I do declare," cried his listener, in a great
rage, "that this is the most audacious demand
ever heard of, and before I will submit"—
"Master," said Aennehen, outside, "here is
some of the wood."
"Pest !" said he in the chair, "I suppose I
must accede. Ten years you may liave, and
then—and then—we will aee."
Well, Carl set him free, not without some
inward trembling. But people in olden times
kept their promises much better than people
do now, and Carl was unharnGied. One exhi
bition of temper Death did make. No sooner
was he tree than, taking his sword, - he hacked
the chair to pieces, and threw them on the fire.
This done, he departed,.and left Carl once more
"When he comes again," thought Carl to
himself, as he sipped his punch, '•I shall have
my affairs in order, and will folio*, him con
lentedly.", , ,
The ten years. granted to Carl under the
foregoing circumstances, do not seem-to have
been very eventful ones, for the legend passes
them over in a single paragraph r to.the effect
that during this period Carl grew very fat.
On a ebetain autumn day Carrwas sitting in
his garden taking his ease. The TREE Was
in full bearing; and such • pears! Large,
ripe, eelded-hud—there ilia` dozens and
doiVtis: of `tUrn,•:`nof-ode of which need be
tO stand before a king. Carl looked at
.them, and his heart was glad within
They were his—to give away, to sell, to eat,
to keep, if he choose; and then his eyes wand
ered from the tree, over the garden, to his
cottage—yes, all hi. own ; he fell in a reverie,
pleasantly broken at intervals by the hum of
bees the sighing of the wind on the tree tops,
and the sweet child-song which Nina Aenn
chen Tochterlam sang at the wheel.
"Carl," said a voice behind him.
Though it was long since Carl had heard
that voice, he had not forgotten it. Hia heart
sail: no escape this time, he thought.
"Has the time really come !" he asked.
"The ten years agreed upon expired months
ago; but, being very busy, I granted you a
little , respite," said Death, for it was no less a
Here was a return for Carl's shabby treat
ment of him on his former visit ! Carl was
overcome by his kindness. -
"Indeed—indeed your are too good. Would
that it lay in my power to
,do anything to show
you that I am not ungrateful." '
As fate would have it, at this moment, a
large pear dropped at Carl's feet. Taking it
up, he offered it to his companion. The latter
waved him off at first; but the rich, spicy odor
of the fruit reached his olfactories, and, hesi
tatingly, he took the pear and bit it to the
"AM." he exclaimed, "what a delicious
"Say you so ?" cried Carl. "There are loads
of them to be had for the picking. Wait but a
moment, and you shall have a score. With
this ladder I shall ascend the tree, only hold
the ladder so that it cannot full." .
During this speech, the person addressed.
having finished the, pear, stood looking hungri
ly at the fruit above him. Carl now planed
the ladder and commenced ascending. But
the cracking of the round warned him to desist •
weight was more than the ladder would
"Alas,! were my little Fritz here, he would
run up like any squirrel—but the ladder is so
frail, I_ fear we must leave the fruit untouched."
"Leave the fruit," cried Death, with water
ing teeth. "Stuff!! I mysellwill climb—"
"But," said Carl, in great alarm, "did you
not hear how the ladder cracked with me.
Consider, sir, you may fall."
. "Nay, my weight is not half so , great as,yours.
Let go my arm; I WILL Go. Hold the lid
Carl did not hold the ladder very carefully;
he warned the climber against the broken round
near the top; but no sooner was the ladder
uncumbered than he threw it on the ground
and himself alongside of it, and rolled around
in a perfect paroxysm of laughter.
Does any reader to be told that, for the sec
ond time, Death was in the power of Carl Tods
The history, as •if ashamed of the whole
transaction, gives but a few particulars of the
scene. Briefly, Carl`demanded and received a
six months' longer lease of life. The prisoner,
when released, descended and departed with
out saying a singel word.
"I know that I have acted ungenerously,"
Carl, said "but then my affairs are in a sad dia•
order, and my farm would go to ruin were I
to leave it now. I will set to putting things
right this very day."
I am compelled to state that things were not
put to rights by Carl, nor was the smallest at
tempt made thereat by him. When exactly - five
minutes of thesix months extorted by Carl
had expired, he commenced casting about him
for some means of extending still further his
allotted time; and this occupation was . by him
continued with intervals for food and . sleep,

poor Curl's head from his body.
