Then he began to run through the dark thieket, striking himself against t<e?? and stone in the J;loom, and hearing at every step the flasks iogling in his pocket. Day break found him in an open plain, and he ocntinued his wan darings. lie would not raturn to tho camp; his one object now was to find a coin under a farthing's worth; but the search was vain. He would demand nothing nsore of the goblin and 10 he begged his way through the- land of Italy. But looking so wild and troubled, he was everywhere regared as crnsy, and was soon known, far and wide, by the name of the mad Half-farthirger. Many months had passed thus, when one day he found himself in the midst of wild mountains, and sat, still and sorrowful, be side a little rill, which, trickling down through a wild growth of bushes, appeared compas s'.onately offering itself for his refreshment. Then there rang?loud and strong?orer the rocky ground, the sound of horsed hoofs, and on a large, blaok wild-looking horse there came a very tall man of hideous visage, in a Sorgeous b'o id- ed dress, up to the spot where Richard sat.44 Why so gloomy, fellow'" said he to the youth, whose breast sank with a strange foreboding " i should gae^s you to be a merchant Have you bougat anything too dear?" " Ah, no?rather too cheap," answered Hicham in a low, trembling voice. " So it appears to me, my good merchant oried the horseman, with a frightful laugh And have you, perchance, such u thing to sell as a bottle imp ? Or am I mistaken in taking you for the mad Half farthiuger ? Scarcely could the pale lips of the poor youth utter a low -"Yes?I am he," under the mo mentary expectation that tho horseman's mantle would turn to blood drippirg wings that black spectral pinions, blazing with hell-fire, would spout forth on his horse, and carry him away to the abodes of eternal tor ture ; but the tall stranger addressed him in a rather milder voice, and with less frightful gestures. " I see for whom you take me," said he , " but be comforted ; i am not he. Perhaps I may even deliver you from him, for I have been many days seeking you to buy this bot tle-imp To be sure, you gave terribly little for it, and I myself don't know how to get at a smaller coin. But listen Oa the other side of the mountain dwells a prince, a wild young fellow To morrow, I will ojntrive to allure bim away irom his hunting train, and set a hideous wild be*st upon him Do you staj here till midnight, and then go, just when the moon stands over that jagged rock, shining through the dark cleft to the left. Go at a moderate pace ; linger not, hurry not, and you will come to the 6pot just when the mon ster will have the prince under his claws ? Seiso it fearlessly, and it must yield to you, and to make it escape, plunge down the steep bank into the sea Then beg of the grateful prince that ho will have a couple of half-farth mgs struck for you; I will give you change for them, and then for one the bottle-imp will be mine " So spoke the horseman, and without waiting for an answer, rode slowly back into the wood ?' But where shall I find you when i have the half-farthings?" cried Richard after him " At tho Black Fountain," answered the horseman : any old woman here can tell you where it lies and with slow but long strides the hideous horse bore away his hideous rider. Richard, who had nothing more to lose, resolv ed to put his advice into execution The night fell; the moon rose and hung with a lurid red light over the indicated point of rock. Then the pale wanderer ar^se trem bling, and stepped into the dark ravine Joy less enough, and gloomy it looked, with only a rare moonbeam here and there, looking in over its lofty walls; there was, too, in that closed in place, a damp earthly exhalation, as of a charnel vault; but nothing else unpleas ant was to be discerned. As it was, Richard did not feel himself tempted to linger, but was rather inclined to hurry on This too, however he refrained from, faithful to the horseman's directions; and after some hours the faint red light of morning glimmered on his dark path, and a fresh cheering breeze played on his face. But just as he stepped out of the deep ravine, and sought to enjoy the fresh forest scenery and the bine glitter of the sea whioh lay spread not far from him, be was disturbed by a wild cry ; he looked round and saw a frightful beast, under whose claws on the ground lay a young man in rich hunting attire Bichard's first impulse was to ruu and help; but whea he looked full at the bea>t and saw that it resembled a mon .strous ape, with a formidable pair of stag's horns, all courage left him, and, in spite of the prostrate man 's miserable cry for help, he was about to oreep back into his chasm ; but the next instant ho suddenly recalled what the horseman had told him, and urged by his own especial dangor, he ran up with his club stick to the monster, which, rolling the hunts man in its claws, seemed about to toss him up, and then catch him on its horns But as Richard advanced, it let its prey drop, and with hideous bowlings ran away. Richard, grown bold, pursued it till it plunged from the ' lofty cliffs, still grinning at him with its abom inable visage, and vanished under the w^ves. And now the ycung man went back trium phantly to the reecued huntsman, who, ac cording to bis expectation, announced himself j as tho reigning prince of the country, and, I pronouncing a eulogium upon his delivery as a true hero, prayed him to demand some re compense, the highest he could pay him. \ " Aye," said Richard, hopefully, " aro you in earnest? Then, all I request ia, in God's n?mo, that you will have a couple of half farthings struck in good coin for me. I ask for only a couple " The prince gaied on him with astonishment, till some of his retinue came up, and on hear ing from him what had happened, one of them recognised in Richard the crazy Half farth inger whom he had once seen The prince began to laugh, and poor Richard embraced hi3 knees in anguish, vowing that without the half-farthings ne should be undone The prince, still laughing, answered : I " Stand up then, follow ; you have my Erincely word ; and if ycu insist on it, I will avo as many half-farthings struck as you wish for. But if the third of a farthing will do as well, no new coins will be wanted, for my border neighbors maintain my farthings to be so light that three of them go into one of theirs " ,, , , . "If that be so" said Richard doubt | ^"^Faith," "aid the prince, "you will be the ' first to whom they seem too good. But if that makes any difficulty, herewith I give yoa my most lolemn word to have still worse one struck for you?provided that be possible " Thereupon be bade a whole bag of farthings to be given te Richard, who immediate'y ran, as if he were pursued, to the frontier, and was a happier man than he had been for a long time, when in the first tavern of the neighboring country, he was grudgingly p??d a common farthing for threeof those ho bought, which he thus exchanged by way of trial Then he inquired for the Black Fou?fi*ln, and some children who were pitying fM?*taTe"? straight ran screaming away The host told him, not without a shudder, that this was aa ill-famed spot, from whi:b many evil spin* came out Into the country, ?pd which few people had actually seen. however, that the approach te it j?s not far from here, being a cavern with two bleated cvnre'ses betore Hi and ?? on* oould mUs the CTUnuh; but (Kd preset*. K* o n.i all true Christiana from that. These word! United JUoUrd; but &*??*-! tare must be bUi, and he wt forth oo hia way. Already frota afar he u? the black and horrible carers; the two cyprcsses teamed to have been blasted w If by Urror of the ghastly abyss. which he taw, u he eame nearer, held in ite hollow a strange heap ef rock.5 They looked like distorted, long-heard ed, goblin faces, some ot which resembled that monstrous ape on the sec-sh*re; bat when steadily regarded, they bee a me only jagged and rifced fragments of the rock. lie entered tremblingly among these stone phantoms. The bottle imp in bis pocket grew so heavy, it seemed trying to poll him haok; bat that ryaed hit courage, "for," thought he, " what it does not like, is just what / mart like." Deeper in the cavern the darkness became $o intense, that he eonld mo longer eee those frightful shapes, and had to feel carefully be fore him with a stick; bat he foand nothing save a fmooth flvor of fine moss, and, but for x strange whistling ?nd croakir.g which passed at times through the eavern, he would ha*e dismissed all fear. At last he had passed through, and found himself iu a desolate hollow, enclosed On all sidrs by the mountains. On one tide be saw the great terrible black horse, standing like an iron statu*, unbound, with head held bigh, without grasing or stirring a limb Oppos.te him gushed out of the rocks a spring, in which the horseman was washing his face acd hand*; but the water was black as ink; and when the gigantic being turned roand to Kieherd, his hideous face was of a negro blackness, frightfully contrasting with his gorges us red attire " Don't tremble, young fellow," said be; " this is one of the ceremonies I am compelled to perform 80, too. whenever I need a new dress, i have to mix its purple with a good oumber of drops from my own blood, whereby it gets that splendid color. In short, I am bound body and soul, beyond all chanee of redemption. And what do you think I got for (hat? Only a hundred thousand pieces of gold a year. Bat I can't make that do, so I want to oay your bottle imp, and thus play the old miser a trick " And be began to laugh, so that the rocks resounded, and even the hith erto motionless black horse started " Well," be asked, turninz again to Rich ard, "do you bring half farthings, comrade " " I am net your oomrade," answered Rich ard, half confused, half testy as he opened his bag "Oh, we are prood. are we??but have a care, my fine gentleman ? Who set the mon ster on the pnncc, that you might conquer it?" l< There wss no need of all that jugglery," said Richard ; and he related how the prince already struck not only half farthings, bat the third part of farthings The red man aprear ed oat of humor at hiving given himself the trouble for nothing However, he changed one good farthing against three bad ones, gave Riobard one of these, and received in return the bottle-imp, which felt very heavy coming out of his pocket, lying carled up. sallen and sad, at the bottom of the phial The rider again laughed violently " That wont help thee, Satan," cried he ; " give me gold here, as much as my horbe caa carry," and forthwith the huge beast groan ed under the burden of gold ; yet he took bis master up again, and like a fly erawling up the wall, stepped right op the perpendicular rock, bat with such hideous movements and contortions that Richard fled back into the oavern, that he might see no more ef them. When he had come out on the other side ef the mountain and run a good way beyond the abyss then, for the first time, did the whole consciousness of hia deliverenoe strike on bis mind Now at length he felt the evil spirit's hold over him gone and the pressure of anspeaks.ble misery removed, and a true penitence for his former wild and sinful life touched his heart iiis joy at his release was tempered by that penitence, and sanctioned by a firm determination to lead a new life, and in this determination, and the carrying on of it, his former cheerful heart returned. With all his renovated strength and spirit, be bent himself to run a good, sober, honorable course ; and in this he succeeded so well, that, after some years of honest labor, be was able to return as a well to-do merchant te the dear German land, where he married ; and where in his old age he frequently told his grand children, as a useful warning the story of the Bottle-imp.
