Well, ono uay, i d taken an uncommon long stroll, and lost my way; and as I was located in a quiet wilderness of a place, covered with sand furre bushes, where a town was a rarity, and the lit tle bits of rugged villages are stowed away in ravines ar.d gorges like as if they were play ing at hide and seek, you might suppose that getting a dinner under such circumstances waan t done m a minute. At last I happened to spy tiie top of a village steeple sticking out ot a ravine, and I was soon alongside the con gregation of mud and timber huts in Germany pass for houses. You may be sure that, as I sweltered down tho village, all but withered by the oppressive power of the sun. I looked for a butcher s; but not a carcase was to be m U ,aPPeared 10 me, from the sleepy look of the place, that there was nothing to be had to eat but hot stones and dust. However, at last I saw a door of a hovel open, in which the commerce of the village was carried on, and I found that 1 could be supplied with ali sorts of coffee, nails, suasages, tape, ohocolate. ?nd, of course, tobacco, sour wine, oils, and other rancid commodities, adapted to German appetites, but nothing else. However, the people directed me to the only hotel in the place ; and in a few minutes after I was seated in Zum firannen Hirsch."

'?How long I should have remained, chew* ing not the ? cud of sweet and bitter fancy/ but th* amber mouth-piece of my cigar-tube I can t pi ?tend to say, ' continued our eater - er, "but I was aroused out of my reverie by a group of Prussian officers: and as they came up stairs, their long cavalry swords dangling on their heels, made as much noise as it' somebody had flung down a doien sets of lire irons. "Now," said I, ? we shall settle the identi ty of this troublesome Der Igel." for 1 know that m< st german officers are well educated men, but, alas . not one of them knew the English name of this vexing animal. I aoon found that matters had progressed from bad t<? worse, for I bud inoculated the officers with my desire to know on what I had dinod. and their frenaied efforts to enlighten me brought on such a clamorous jargon in German gutter* als, mixed up with jagged, spluttering conso nants that soon began to have a baneful influ ence upon that undigested portion of Der Igel I ?<> recently had swallowed. One said ho squeaked; another declared be grunted; a punchy little hutsar thought it might be a " Psha '?a hare ! Does a hare bark ? Dec Igel barks, though very faintly." " Der Igel barks, does he * Well that shows how much you know about the matter. Ho whines, if you liko." This last remark brought forth a host of pshas* cbuts! chiktts' and other inteijec tions, every one of which was sent hissing out of their mouths with force enough to blow their front teeth out. " Come, come." said I, interrupting them; " never mind about his voice?what are his habit*?" '? He prowls only at night, ' said one. '* i've seen him in the day time,'* said to* other. Some described him as preferring the land, some the woods, and some the water. One rath young cornet, heedless of the consequenoes, suggested that 44 Der Igel might possibly be amphibious.' Poor fellow! his meddling ob servation brought down upon him such a shower of harsh, grating epithets, bristlier with jagged German consonants, as would have split the drum of any ear, exeept a Ger man's, into infinitesimal splinters. Matters had arrived at this pass, when an officer said that he had iust remembered a characteristic of Der Igel that had escaped as "What is it?" " Der Igel burrows." "So does a fox, a rabbit, and a marmot, but none of these are like Der Igel." w hat does he eat ? demanded some one. " Roots." vociferated the young cornet. "Game."' shouted another. "Garbage, 1 chimed in the landlord. " At this last observation a sickening sen sation crept over me," said oar Caterer "I began to suspect that the oily-looking burgo master, for the sake of the miserable florins, my tinner came to, had allowed me to craui mystlf with a polecat, an otter, or a gigantic sloat or weaile. My head began to swim, my dinner rose and fell in my stomach, like the piston of steam eugine, lor what with my anxiety to discover what I had eaten, toge ther with the noise, sour wine, and the smoke, I was beginning to suffer all the miseries of a fit of indigestion, Luckily at this moment, Captain Her Fon Knoblesdorf (he ought to be immortalised for settling the matter,) said I might easily guess on what I had dined, when he said that every hair on Der Igel's back was stiff enough to make a toothpick. Puisling as this remark was. it nevertheless proved to be a step in the f right diiecticn, for the muddle-beaded burgo master now recollected, for the first time while we were discussing the nature of Der Igel'a ooat, that be had preserved his skin ; and he abused himself almost as much as I did for not thinking of it before ?'Bravo!" "Up with it!" ' Now you'll see who's right!
