with me as without a doubt you wilt
then you are to replace this gold with an

" Agreed V It is a wager j" chorussed
the Colonel and the two other officers. :
And in that moment while the door1

officers, attracted from the next room by.
the debate as that young Refugee stood
with one hand resting upon the little pile
of gold, his ruddy face grew suddenly pale;
as a shroud, his blue eyes dilated until
they were each encircled by a line of
white enamel, he remained standing there,
as if frozen to stone. j
" Wh', Captain, what is the matter?"
cried the Colonel, starting U;p in alarm, j
"do you see a ghost, that yoii stand gaz
ing there, at the blank wall ?' i
The other officers also started up in a-
laTm,also asked the cause of jthis singular
demeanor, but still for tjie space of a mi
nute or more, the Refugee Captain stood
there, more like a dead man, 'suddenly re
called to life, than a livjng being.
That moment past, he sat dowfi with a
cold shiver ; made a strong Effort as if to
cammand his reason ; and then gave ut
terance to a fprced laugh. j
"Ha, ha ! See how I've frightened you?"
he saidand then laughed that cold, un
natural, hallow laugh again.)
