I will speak, and as iny friend has suggested the subject. althoitglL it. is not a plea­ sant one to me, 1 will tell you a tale of my Inunc. l’ussia. and of myself, a Ni­ hilist. I fit seems strange, then grant me that strange tilings and horrible ones may happen even in Christian Kurope, aud in this nineteenth century, it is word for word true.'* Wc drew nearer the speaker, and lis­ tened intently. A Russian storj- told in Colorado, for our cabin was far up among the spurs of tlie Rockies, in the western portion of the State, and that story, the history of a Nihilist, was a new and strange treat for American i ears. “ Six years ago I was living iu Dar- nowsky. in the province of Rublin, in the southern part of tlie greatest of Kitropeaii Kmpires, a youug man happy as circumstances would allow, and nt the time of which I speak doubly hap­ py uud contented in m>' little scitoi 1 , for i was a teacher, and i hail just made the sweetest and prettiest girl in the village my wife. Marie Curl off was mine, won from a score of suitors by love alone, for I had little money, and 1 was content. “ Chief among tlie disconsolate ones w as the son of au ex-army officer, Louis I.odiski by name, a handsome but un­ principled fellow, who for years had been infatuated with Marie. However, when onr coining wedding was announc­ ed, Louis left the village, and I was spared his scowl and muttered threats, aud soon forgot him in the joj- of I iouk ;- life. “ For throe years I was at rest. Then came the great cloud that to-day over­ hangs my native land, and its dark shallow fell across even ini’ humlde threshold. 1 had been a St. I’etersburg student, and when the strange mono­ mania nf communism, silent and dendir, crept through tlie ration, it found iu me alt easy prey, aud 1 became a Nihil­ ist, swore to tlie terrible oaths, and linked myself body and soul to their un­ known and horrible purposes. 1 shud­ der uow as I remember. “There was a circle formed in our town, and two months after I hnd join­ ed it. there appeared oue night amongst us. commissioned from tlie Grand Circle at Moscow as our chief. Louis I.odiski. “ I bowed bofore him, but when I saw tlie fierce light of baffled passion and eager reionge gleam in liis hated ej t s. brightly as when last I had met him. thon th.- rejected suitor of my w ife, 1 knew and felt for the. first time into what a htsrrible pit I had fallen; for, “ liut of all tiiis my wife knew 110 - tliiug. except that her old lover was iu town. “ Fora time there was little work for our soeietj-, but it so happened that to­ ward tho spring a new quartering of soldiers was made iu our town, under the charge of Colonel Jelikoff, a Died and true officer of tlie government, and one who had Several times incurred tlie displeasure of the Nihilists, llardly had the troops become settled when a sealed dispatch was received by I.odis­ ki from tlie Grand Circle at Moscow, containing the death warrant of the Colonel; and in drawing lots for the one to act as executioner, the same devil's luck which had tirst dragged me into this conspiracy, or some treachery of my chief, cast tlie dread duty upon me. “ By tlie rules of our order, unques­ tioning obedience, nt tlie price of one’s j own life, must he given to all decrees I by the person so chosen, and I knew it; ! yet the word murderer flamed before nij' eyes, and tny heart stood still as 1 ! held tlie fatal lot in my hands. “ And even as I gazed, dazed and j dull, upon iny comrades about me. j whose stern, white faces reflected the I horror in my own. the w hisper of our chief hissed warninglj’ through the nlr ! tlie single word: 1 “ ‘ Beware!’ “ Witii the cry of a lost soul, 1 fled from the room. “ There remained three days of grace. 'I’he ukase of the Grand Circle, with a perfection of cruelty, granted the slave doomed to execute tlieir diaboli­ cal commands three days’ mercy. At the end of that time tlm condemned must imve ceased to live, or the slave would become tlie victim instead. ‘•Of the flrst day I have no remem­ brance. It did not consist of hours, but of moments, each separate and distinct —of ideas born only to die. In a w ord, for, the lirst tw enty-four horns 1 Was crazed. Flic second day found me cool and helpless. I made my plans. Olie^I must, for my w ife’s sake and my owr Jelikoff must die that wu might live. *■ For five hours I debated where to do tlie deed; then, still uncertain, w alk­ ed In tiie verge of tlie- town, and as 1 walked some one joined me—I.odiski. “ ‘ To-morow?’ said he, inquiringly. *“ To-morrrow!’ 1 returned. ‘it must bo to-morrow for o«o of us,’ and I shuddered. “ We stood a space in silence; llien tlie man came closer, and placed liis hand upon my shoulder. •“ Listen! It is hard; it, is dangerous. Capture means death, llere is money. You must tlee instantly tlie work is done.’ *■ Unwittingly. I thrust the gold into my bosom, and repeated after him: ‘••I must flee instantly! And my wife?’ ‘“ I will care for her until you re­ turn.’ “ In a single breath my brain clear­ ed, the dread cloud thut for two da,vs had shadow ed it passed, and I knew tlie hand thst had worked tny ruin. 1 wns to become an outlaw, in order that my wife might be the spoil of this monster, j “ Wbat power it was that held my hands I know not. The ingc in my heart, tlie frenzy to seize tiie accursed one at tny side and tear liis throat out. all but overpowered me. and it was, only by a superhuman effort of tlie w ill that 1 remained silent.’ “ •Tho deed must be to-morrow,’ continued I.odiski, ‘and the only place where you cau llnd Jelikoff alone is iu the bell-tower. Thither lie goes caeli evening before tho curfew ring*, to wiateh tlie change of guards upon tlie opposite side of the river. You can conceal yourself there, aud strike him down. It. will he long before hu is missed, and you will have time for flight.’ “ 1 bowed my hend, I dared not trust my tongue. It might be that I should strike too soon. ■ Deep w ithin mjr heart tlie determination to kill was well fixed; but. unknown to my chief, the victim hud been changed. “ * I will join yon at the foot of the tower after curfew. See to it that it L after—tlie cad,’ I.odiski continued. •• My blood leaped. “ ‘Jt is w ell,’ I replied, and he left me. “ That night I told my wife all, and lier love stood tlie test. Kre morning dawned, under the escort of a faithful servant, she was at the Volga Dernstum watch-tower, where liusg the great bell that rang tlie curfew. Kre tlie ringer had entered the tower from liis supper, I was secreted in tlie loft near the win­ dow. “lt was uot my intent to kill Jelikoff. If he came I could confess all. then de­ scend and wreak my vengeance upon I.odiski below, and,flee tiie country; or if lie came not tlie end would be tlie same. Still bound my oath, and envir­ oned by n thousand spies, I dared not th e until night. And I.odiski must die! “ Alone In tlie grim tower I waited, and the about me squeaked, and thu damp w ind of tlie steppes swept mournfully in and kissed my hot cheek. Tlie moments passed! “ Suddenly a nameless dread fell upon inc. Instinctively I felt the presence of some new and near danger, and a sense | of doom overcame me, as if 1 listened to the words of tiie judge who recited tlie condemning proofs of my falseness to our order. If I did not kill Jelikoff, I and failed to find I.odiski,1 must die! “ Quivering with this new terror, 1 glanced suspiciously about mo—into tlie deep shadows of the corners, behind the great beams, aloft among the hats’ nests, and at last beneath the mighty bell hanging silent at my side. “ And there. 1) ing prone upon a cross­ beam directly under the great iron dome, so dose that the lirst sw ing of tlie pon­ derous metal w ould crush him, lay Lo- ; diski. liis eyes fastened upon me! I lie had eome as a spy, to know if i did well my duty—that he might de- i notince me publicly as a murderer if I I did it. or condemn me privately to death | if 1 did it not. “ Even as I saw liim, I heard tlie step ! I of the Colonel on tlie stair,and liis word to tiie waiting bell-tnan below. } “ ‘ Carl. 1 w ill detain you but a nio- ! menf. When I descend j oh may ring.’ “ My heart censed to beat. Jelikoff ascended. I stood at ids back. One! two! three! four! Itv*! six! I seven! “ it was tlie village clock. Jelikoff turned to descend, I shrank into tlie 1 shadow behind him. I.odiski’s ej’es Oi^ed w ilii baleful tiro. “ Jelikoff went dow n the stair. “ •Fool! slave! coward!’ hissed try chief, half-rising from Itis hands and knees. • You die.’ ** There came a creaking sound tlie great wooden wheel above turned upon its axis, the lints flew snarling about, and then tiio mighty bell, swinging slowly, gained in momentum.and swept in a long are upward. “ I odiski uttered a single erv as the tremendous massjioised above him. and would have dragged himself out of its reach, hut with sudden fury I stretched my arm like a bar of steel, caught his Imir. and forced him back upon tlie beam—and then tlie great bell fell as falls the knife of tlie guillotine, crush­ ing into a Ipdeou* mass tlie body of the spy. while its heavy knell rang witli a gurgling shiver far out across the bar­ ren land, and a little stream of blood, warm and red. ran slowly down the beam nnd dyed the lips and tongue of tlie iron monster as lie swung. “ The curfew was s-.wading, and I was saved. Three hours later, in the silence of night, i escaped tlie tower nnd Hod.
