Here I was obliged te content myself with a chamber 011 the fourth tioor, oddly enough arranged in some respects as, upon going to it, after supping, foVthe purple of changing my travel-stained .ires* i noticed the room had no windows, with the exception of a square opening in the wall Wh!iCh Vr and *'?"*?re admitted f tbo ^joining room To the opening too, was attached a shutter in that room I dressed and attended the Broadway Theatre reaching my apartment, on returning, about half past twelve o'clock at night. When about stepping into bed i observed . , wicket open, and a thought struck me to take a look iuto the adjoining apartmont; why i, JI?8 f know Dot; P?rbaps a sense of my odd insecurity actuated me.

About 3 o clock, it Uiigbt have been, I waa aroused by a some what singular noise On listening, it evident y proceeded from the next room. It could be ikened to nothing 1 had ever heard ; it was ow but regular, and metailic in its sound, so I". tXAreS8 148uch a 9001,(1 for iB?tan-e, as might be made in cutting glass with a dia ? fa"J,len,y 1 thought of the whet-,tout un the ta ble, and at the same moment became convinced the noise was that of a knife beirg sharpened The whetting now ceased.

I think i possess the ordinary courage of a man, but I must confess the blood in my veina seemed to curdle as I viewed the apparition. Quick as lightning I sprang up in bed pointing my pistol, cried out, 44 It you move a znuacle from your position. you re a dead man " The eyes g a red, the head remaining, however as de senbed, the man not uttering a syllable I got out of bed and with pistol still presented and eyes fixed on his, I backed t? the bell rope and pulled it violently.

A* Arm v Okfickr Tub Origin or a Play.-A very good aiory is told of the manner in which the younger Dumas, famous by his ''l>aine nux Camelias ' and bis 41 Demi-Mondr,'' was iat.ly inJucoJ to write another play, he being of rather an indolent disposition by nature. Shortly after Bsaufcrt s assumj tion of management, he de sired a play from Dumas, and went to Li< hotel to seo him As toon as Duiuas perceived him. he knew the object of his visit, and said to him : 44 Sorry, my dear fellow, that I can't talk with you, but I'm going out witS Z to take a long twim." \ ery well.*' replied the manager, <4 I'm very fond of swimming myself, and will ac company you if you 11 let me " Hardly were they in the water, when Beau lort placed his hauds on Dumas' shoulder* and asked : 41 Do yr.u like to be ducked ? ' 4 Like it f No, I hate it." 4 Well, I in stronger than you, ?nJ I || three times, if you don t write uie a play " 44 Nonsense !" ''Not a bit of it. I'm in earnest " 44 You're mad " "Ami? Well see.
