I hadn't seen him for sonic 1 time, and he looked sunburnt and rough as if he had been exposed to the country sun. He informed me that he had, and that he had been to visit Tim Somcrs, a mutual friend of ours, who had moved away from town many years before. After inquiries concerning his visit and his enjoyment d»-, to our old friend. "I never was more surprised in mv life i said Burner, "than I was to see him" in the depot at Ramshead. I had quite forgotten |this' "singular woman, that did you know her?" "Yes," I replied "she is a little bustling, talkative thing full of fun and chat, and msk ing her house merry by the nuufa of her voice. Nice little woman/" Burner looked at me a hiftmehf' iihdliurst' into a laugh, to my great wonderment. I| requested him, in a tone of chagrin, to inform I mo what the deuce he was laughing at. "Talkative," said he, when he could check-! rein his cachinatory colt. "I found her any thing but that, I tell you. I never knew the lady when she lived in town, but a more) taciturn body I never saw than I found her." "Indeed I remarked, "then there must: inquiring after his old friends, and you wit hi the rest. Through ill his joy however I ™TnPnn' -vou raw that there was a vein of sadness and i when I aTTuded to his family, he appeared embarrassed, and disposed to change the sub ject. I had no object in view in visiting Ramshead, other than the chango of scene, and did not intend to remain there but a day or two birt meeting Somers led me to think that it would not be a bad thing to tarry awhile, seeing that there was a beautiful from tho cars as I came along, and a deep wood, denoting game. Somers used to be great on those things, you know. I hinted at our former practices, and mentioned my half resolution to stay but instead of mani. festing any interest in tbe subject, ho sighed deeply, and replied .. "Burner, I havn't taken a pole in my hand nor put a gun to my shoulder, for five long years, and I never shall again." I lookeed at him with astonishment, tint knew that ho was sincere. I fancied that I saw a tear in bi| intelligent eye, and my heart grew stronger towards him than ever. I then quite resolved to stay, and ordered the porter of the hotel to carry my baggage— my valise and gun—up to the house, which was Hose by. My rod-cane carried in my i band. Taking Somers on my arm, we fol lowed the porter, and a few moments later' found us seated in my room with a little rummer of claret negus !ctweon ns--art'ex cellent lubricator for a dusty day. i "Well, how are you prospering, Somers I replied, wishing to penetrate, if possible, the mystery that enshrouded him, deeming that it might le some business difficulty in which lie was involved.
