A tl0 pi..i 00 k' of his father's house, wind ih'ad "sprung'.up out of the north-f westj-4^ was cruel keen, it dried him like flre; and racked his finger-joints. It brought clouds, too; pale, swift, hurry- Ing clouds; that blotted heaven and shed gloom upon tho earth. He scram- jled up among the hazeled rubbish leaps tliat surrounded the cauldron of !he quarry, and lay flat Upon the stories. The wind searched close along- the earth, the'stones were cutting and 3ul Ulii L1*O Dl\/**V*w iw v~ -~ — u icy, the bare hazels wailed about him; ihd soon the air of the afternoon began to be vocal with those strange anil dismal 'harpings that herald snow. Pain and misery turned in Jo'hn's limbs to a harrowing impatience and blind desire of change; now he would roll in his harsh lair, and Avhen the flints abraded him, Avas almost pleased; now he would crawl to the edge of the huge pit and look dizzily down. He sa\v the spiral of the descending roadway, the steep crags,.the'clinging bushes, the peppering of snow-Avreaths, and far down in the bottom, 'the diminished crane. Here, no doubt, was a. way to end .it. But it'somehow did not take his fancy. And suddenly he was aware that he was hungry; ay, even through the tortures of the cold, even through the frosts of despair; a gross, desperate longing-after'food, no matter what, no' matter -bow,,, began to a\rake and spur him. Supp'ose he pawned his watch? But no, on Christmas day— this was Christmas day—the > pawnshop would be closed. Suppose" ha went to the public house close by at Blackball, and offered the watch, which was Avorth ten pounds, in payment for a meal of bread and cheese?' The .incongruity was remarkable; the good folks would»either put him to the door, or only let him in to send for the police. He 'turned his pockets out • one after another; some San Francisco tram-car checks, one cigar, no lights, the pass-key to his father's house, a pocket-'bandkerchief, with just a touch y must have"-p'as'sed. . crouched on ,the cold stones or wandering in the flelda among the snow, was more than he could tell; but hours had passed. The finger of, the hall clock was close on twelve; a narrow peep of gas in the hall-lamp shed shad- 1 ows; and tlie door v of the back room- bis father's room—was open , and emitted a Warm light. At so late-an, hour,, all this was strange; the llghta should have been out, Jhe doors locked, the good folk safe In bed. He marveled • at the Irregularity, leaning on,the hall- table; and marveled to himself there; and thaAved and grew once more hungry, in the warmer air of the house. The clock uttered its premonitory catch; in five minutes,Christmas day Avould be among the days of the past— Christmas!—what a Christmas! Well, there was no' use Availing; he had come into that; house, he scarce know how; if they were to thrust him forth again, it had best be done and at, once; and he moved to the door of tho back room and entered. 1 Oh, 'Avell, then he was insane, as he had long'believed. * • - > ;TO ua bif'f emettbef ed, i«d r ,thnt eafatalti' &h<i fflahftg'erfit jthe I team'it made the best'.feccM l-khow 1 .there, has'ilways'bfee_ _ deaf of,feeling against'Mm, on, the of 'fidme of the clttclnnatliplayer's, ,,.... a'saint from, heaven w'buld havtf his hands' full with the idiosyncrasies of that cr^wd, Perhaps they would not be so bad' if the Cinciunatl newspapers could be called' off, but as long as softie of the men can go and tattle to reporters and see it get into print, just BO long there will be anything but' a sincere desire to get the pennant.
