I bade my ho-U god lye, and then etar

road, at all. Tne youth, before mentioned,
bad told me what an excellent road it waa
fruui liroouia'e lo the mill, by ibe rirer
road. Ho tald if foibed tbo atream,
which a a tc-y bear itrtiglit, and that it
waa light and opeu tlie whole tlist nc.

aa I reaciie t the jdgc of the wiod I a

look tbe ahrubbety I bad paaed. I looked
and aaw "Ike" goii g froua the house to the
barn. He bad a aidie upon hit aim. 1
a ur it wa a aad die. l'crbapa be bad
au rrtaud lo do.
Kre long, I tuteted the wood, and found
it thick aud gloomy. The path waa plain
ei.ougb, and bad etidititly beeu oi.ee a
tiavtlril road. Ayu I rum-inhered, now,
of having t.'.trd my iulormaut ot the uooi
lide r-peak tf the "old road." He taid
ihere ucd to be a road leading to Uock
Uiver, but when Foater comturuced hi utt
t le rue tit, a new red w opened by the
stream, and the old. cue di-coiitinocd. He
bad a.id nothing about any bridge.
Af the dittauce of two tuiies, I came to
a place where a bed ol and lay across the
road. Il ia a aort of gully, and a nrcati)
uiul at aome lime hive tuu (litre I looked,
but taw no track upou it. Water had

I begau to think. Why wa (irootue to
