Presently I go to the window and look out ; it has oeusvd snowing and thronc;h a rift in th e clonds I see a star. \ It is beifinninp to cb.ar.\ I tell my wife, and also inform he r it is half past 11 o'clock As she lichts he r candle at the side-table- I hear a whining and sc*»tehiutr at the front door. \There is Lsddi e loose again,\ says she. ' Would voit let hip in, dear?\ I did not like facing the cold wind, bat could not refuse to let the[K>or ani mai in. Strangrly enough, when I opened the door and called him h e wouldn't nnif. He runs tip to the door and looks int.. ray face with dnoih entreaty ; then he runs hack a few steps, looking round to see if I am fol- lowing ; and, finally, he takes my coat in his month and tries to draw me ont. \Laddie won't cotsie in,\ I call ont t o my wife. \On th e contrary, h e seems to want me t o tro out and have a game of snowball with him.\' She -throws a shawl around he r and cornea to the door.

'A night in th e snow won't hurt him; \ and I prepare to close th e door. \Yoti will d o nothing of th e kind!'\ she replies, with an annons look, \but yon will rouse th e servants at once, and follow him.
