THE MiSADVEiNlORES OnOHOICHOLSOB, BY ItOIiEKT LOV1S STKVJEXSON. CHAPTER VI—CONTINUED. From one of these spells he was awakened by the stoppage of the cab; . and, getting down, ho found himself in quite a country road, the last lamp of the suburb shining some way below, and tho high walls of a garden rising before him in the dark. The Lodge (as tho place was named) stood, indeed, very solitary. To the south it adjoined another house, but standing in so large a garden as to be well out of cry; on all other sides, open flelds stretched upward to tho woods of Corstorphine Hill, or backward to the dells of Kavelston, or downward toward the valley of the. Leith. The effect of seclusion was aided by the great height of tho garden walls, which were indeed conventual and as John had tested in former days defied the climbing school boy. The lamp of the cab throw a gleam upon the door and not brilliant handle of the bell. "Shall I ring for ye?" said the cabman, who had descended from his perch and was slapping his chest, for tho night'was bitter, i "I wish you would." said John,putting his hand to his brow in one of liia excesses of giddiness. i The man pulled at the handle and the clanking of tho boll replied from further in the garden; twice and thrice he did it with sufficient intervals: in the great, frosty silence of tl-3 night the sounds fell sharp and small. "Does he expect yeP" asked the driver, with that manner of familial- interest that well became his port- wine face; and when John had told him no. "Well, then," said the cabman, "ifye'll tak' my advice of it, we'll gang back. Aud that's disinterested, mind yc ? for my stables are in the Glesgic road." "Tho servants must hear," saiv. John. "Hout," said the driver, "he keeps no servants here, man. They're in the town house; I drive him" often; Its just a kind of hermitage, this." "Give me the bell!" said John; and he plucked at it like a man desperate. The clamor had not yet subsided before they heard steps upon tho gravel, and a voice of singular nervous irritability cried to them through the door. "Who are you, and what do you want?" "Alan," said John, "it's me its Fatty—John, you know. I'm just come home, and I've come to stay with you." There was no reply for a moment, and then the door was opened. in no state to criticise, shared profoundly in the feeling. When thd stillness Was <5ac& More •perfect, Alan Shouldered £h6 portmanteau, carried it in, and shut and locked the garden door; and then, once more, abstraction seehied to fall upon him, and ho stood with his hand upon the key, until the cold began to nibble at John's fingers. • '"Why are wo standing hero ?"askcd John. "Eh?" said Alan,, blankly. "Why, man, you don't scorn yourself," said tho other. "No, I'm not myself, said Alan; and he sat down on the portmanteau and put his face in his hands. John stood beside him swaying a little, and looking about him at tho swaying shadows, the flitting sparkles, and the steady stars overhead, until the windless cold began to touch him through his clothes on the bare-skin. Even in his bemused intelligence wonder began to awake. "I say, let's come on to the house," he said at last. "i r es, let's come on to the house," repeated Alan. And he rose at onco, reshouldered the portmanteau, and, taking the candle in his other hand, moved forward to the lodge. This was a long, low building, smothered in creepers; and now, except for some chinks of light between the dining-room shutters, it was plunged into darkness and silence. In the hall Alan lighted another cnndle, gave it to John, and opened the door of a bedroom. "Here," he said, "go to bed, Don't mind mo, John. You'll bo sorry for me when you know." "Wait a bit," returned John, "I've got so cold with all that standing about. Lot's go into the dining-room a minute. Just one glass to warm mo, Alan." On the table in the hall stood a glass, and a bottle with a whisky label on a tray. It was plain tho bottle had boon just opened, for tho cork and^ corkscrew lay beside it, "Tako that," said Alan, passing John tho whisky, and then with a certain roughness pushed his friend into tho bedroom and closed the door behind him. John stood amazed. Then ho shook the bottle, and, to his further wonder, found it partly empty. Three or f our glasses were gone. Alan must have uncorked tho bottle of whiskey and drank threo or four glasses, one after the otlier, without sitting down, for there was no chair, and "that in his own cold lobby on this freezing night! It fully explained his eccentricities, John reflected sagely as ho mixed himself a grog. Poor Alan! He was drunk; and what a slave to it poor Alan was. to drink in this unsociable, uncomfortable fashion! The man who would drink alone, except for health's sake, as John was now doing, was utterly lost. Ho took the grog out, and felt hazior, but warmer. It was hard work opening' the portmanteau and finding his night things; and before ho was undressed the cold had struck homo to him once more. "Well," said, he, "there's no sense in getting ill with all this other trouble." And presently dreamless slnmbor buried him. With ft moderated voica, he made the hasty circuit of tho garden, and find-' ing neither man nor trace of man in all its evergreen coverts, turned at last to tho house. About thd house the silence seemed to deepen strangely. The door, indeed, stood open ds before; but tho windows Were still shuttered, the chimneys breathed no stain into the bright air, there sounded abroad none of that low stir (perhaps audible rather to the eyes of the spirit than to the oar of tho flesh) by which a house announces and betrays its human lodgers. And yet Alan must bo there—Alan locked in drunken slumbers, forgetful of the, return of day, of the holy season, and of the friend whom he had so coldly received and was now so churlishly neglecting. John's disgust redoubled at the thought; but hunger was beginning to grow stronger than repulsion, and as a stop to breakfast, if nothing else, he must find and arouse this sleeper. Ho made the circuit of the bedroom quarters. All, until he came to Alan's chamber, were locked from without, and bore the marks of a prolonged disuse. But Alan's was WIT AND HUMOR LAtE PRODUCTIONS OI* FUNNY WRITERS. THE Ts'«Mtnp.< t Mrs. Brickfoiv—It's perfectly inablc.

Friend—You are allowing your deposit to remain, I presume. Average Man—Um-er—I haven't any funds in that bank. or "Get the portmanteau down, John to the driver. "Do nothing of the kind," said Alan;and then to John. "Corr<e inhere a moment. I want to speak io you." John entered tho garden and tho door was closed behind him. A candle stood on tho gravel walk, winking a little in the draughts; it threw in- consistant sparkles on the clumped holly, struck tho light and darkness to and fro like a veil on Alan's features, and sent his shadow hovering behind him. All beyond was inscrutable; and John's dizzy brain rocked with the shadow. Yet oven so, it struck him that Alan was pale, and his voice, when ho spoke, unnatural. "What ?jrings you here to-night?" he began. "I don't want, God knows, to seem unfriendly; but I cannot take you in, Nicholson; I can not do it.' "Alan," said John, "you've got to! You don't know the mess I'm in; tho governor's turned me out, and I dare not show my face in an inn, because they're down an me for murder something." "For what!" cried Alan, starting. "Murder, I believe," says John. "Murder!" repeated Alan, and passed his hand over hib eyes, "what was that you were saying P" he asked again. "That they are down on me," safd John. I am accused of murder, by what I can make out, and I've really had a dreadful day of it, Alan, and I can't sleep on the roadside on a night like this — at least, not with a portmanteau," he pleaded. "Hush!" said Alan, with his head on one side; and then. '-Did hear nothing?" he asked. "No," said John, thrilling, ho knew not why, with communicated terror. ''No, i heard nothing, why?" And then, as there was no answer, he reverted to his pleading. "But I say, you've just got to take me in. I'll go right away to .bed if you have anything to do. I seem to haye been drinking; I was that knocked over. I wouldn't turn you away, Alan, if you were down, on your luck." "OS0?" returned Alan- '"Neither B'iil J you, then. Come and let's get your' portmanteau." The cabiiian was paid, and drove off 4own the long, lamp-lighted hill, and tli* -two f rjends. stood an the sidewalk bfcade th< j portmanteau, lill the last rumblo c| the wheels, . ha$ £ied in ft sfeertied to John as thp,ugh When John uwoko it was day. The low winter sun was already in the heavens, but his watch had stopped, and it was impossible to toll the hour exactly. Ton, ho guessed it, and said i maf l° haste to dress, dismal reflections you attached $4$ crowding on his mind. But it was loss from terror than from regret that he now suffered, and with°his regret there were mingled cutting pangs of penitence. Thoro had fallen upon him a blow, cruel indeed, but yet only tho punishment of old misdoing; and he had rebelled and plunged into fresh sin. Tho rod had been used to chasten, and ho had bit the chastening fingers. His father was right; John had justified him; John was no guest for decent people's houses, and no fit associate for decent people's children. And had a broader hint been needed, tlicro was tho case of his old friend. John was no drunkard, though ho could at times exceed, and tho picture of Houston drinking neat spirits at his hall table struck him with something like disgust. Ho hung back from mooting his old friend. Ho could have wished he had not come to him; and yet, even now, whore else was he to turn? These musings occupied him while he dressed, and accompanied him into the lobby of the house. The door stood open on the garden. Doubtless Alan had stepped forth, and John did as he supposed his friend had done. The ground was hard as iron, the frost still rigorous. As he brushed among tho hollies, icicles jingled and glittered in their fall; and wherever he wont a volley of .eager sparrows followed him. Here were Christmas weather and Christmas morning duly met, to the delight of children." This was the day of reunited families, the day to which he had so long looked forward, thinking to awake in his own bed in Handolph Crescent reconciled with all men and repeating the footprints of his youth; and here he was alone, pacing the alleys of a wintry garden and filled with penitential thoughts. And that reminded him: Why was he alone? And where was Alan? The thought of the festal morning and the duo salutations reawakened his desire for his friend, and he began to call for him by name. As the sound of his voice died away, he was aware of the greatness of the silence that environed him. But tor; the twittei> ing of tho sparrows and the crunching of his own feet upon the frozen snow, the whole windless world of aiy hung over him entranced, and the stillness weighed W oji his wnd with o| room in commission, filled with clothes, knickknacks, letters, books, and tho conveniences of a solitary man. ^The fire had been lighted) but it had long ago burned out, and the ashes wore stone cold. The bed hud been made, but it had not been slept in. Worse and worse, then; Alan must have fallen where he sat, and now sprawled brutishly, no doubt upon tho dining-room floor. The dining-room was a very long apartment and was reached through a passage; so that John, upon his entrance, brought but little light with him, and must move toward the window with spread arms, groping and knocking on the furniture. Suddenly he tripped and fell his length over ft prostrate body. It was what ho had looked for, yet it .shocked him; and he marvelled that so rough an impact should not have kicked a groan out of the .drunkard. Men had killed themselves eve now in such excesses, and a dreary and degraded cud that made John shudder. What if Alan wore dead? Thoro would bo a Christinas Day! By this, John had his hand upon tho shuttovs, and flinging thorn buck, beheld onco again tho blessed face of tho day. Even by that light the room had a discomfortablo air. Tho chairs wore scattered and one had been overthrown; the tablecloth, laid as if for dinner, was twitched to one side, and some of the dishes had fallen to tho floor. Behind the table lay tho drunkard, still unarouscd, only one foot visible to John. But now that light was in the room, tho worst seemed over; it was a disgusting business, but not more than disgusting; and it was with no great apprehension that John proceeded to make tho circuit of the table; his last comparatively tranquil moment for that day. No sooner had he turned tho corner, no sooner had his eyes alighted on the body, than he gave a smothered, breathless cry, and Had out of the room and out of the house. It was not Alan who lay there, but a man well up in years, of stern countenance and 'iron-gray locks; and it wits no drunkard, foi- the body lay in a black pool of blood, and the op311 eyes stared upon tho ceiling. To and fro walked John before tha door. The extreme sharpness of tho air acted on his nerves like an astringent and braced them swiftly. Presently, he not relaxing in his disordered walk, the images began to come clearer and stay longer in his fancy, and next tho power of thought cam» back to him, and the horror and dan' gor of his situation rooted him to the ground.

[TO UK CONTINUED.] FUN IN CROSSING STREETS, riotny of I'un la Tlint I'roooaa in Non- York City. I perfectly love to cross streets. It is so exciting. I never feol real sure I won't have to be rescued before I get over. Oh, no; you will never bo really run over, not if you do tho way I have told you; but often you will get rescued. Some men—almost always a real nice, handsome one—will dash in after you and half carry you to the sidewalk. Maybe ho will really think you are in danger; perhaps ho will just think it is a good chance to rescue you, writes Clara Belle in the Times-Democrat. But so long as you can suppose ho was trying to save you it is elegant. Everyone looks at you and you fool so nice and conspicuous. I was rescued once in a perfectly horrid way, I got in an awful mess. I guess tho driver was drunk, because any driver that wasn't would have pulled back when he saw a girl just calmly walk right under his horse's hoofs. But he didn't and for a minute I was scared. Then I felt myself grabbed and simply hurried to the sidewalk right under and over everything. I was much worse scared than before, and when I got there and looked up it was the fiercest old man you ever saw, with hair all over his face and shining eyes. He took me by the shoulder and shook, me till a lot oi hairpins came out. He talked at me most awfully in Gorman, not a bit tike school German, so it must have been mostly swearing. Then he left me all limp and strode oft' uptown. Do you know, I believe it was Hen- Most- I was quite careful a long time after that, but it is ever so much more fun not being careful. • A Mistake.

Must TSo Good, Dora—Oh, I'm in such distress of mind, and I want your advice. I am loved by three men and I don't know which to.accept. Clara — "Which one has the most money?
