I'KInH. No, we'll remain ! Thin wild place pleases me, and beautiful The night ia, aa with howl* it echoes back Tho frenzy raging in mo ! Norro (shuddering). Why, it la A murderous night, as though all fiends wero loosed ! Like red-hot witches'-brooms whiz slantingly Tho ruddy lightnings—rain pours down iu streams, Mixed with a thousand heavy hail-stones. Fast And furious fares tho unfettered blustering wind Through all tho boughs; all round in tho dark forest Aro shrieks and groans, as though old Night brought forth. In dismal emulation of tho storm Cry owl and jackal !—brr !—'Tis fearful, fearful ! PEIOK (starting ami drawing Norro lo him). Hist ! Noffo !—look !—Sco'st not yon littlo flamo ? It has a human aspect. (Springing up and shrinking in terror to one side.) Noffo, seo ! Is it not Molay, whom wo would sacrifico ?— KUDO'S Voice. Herilcrt, turn from thino infamy ; Child of tho light, let tho fire bo ; In tho Now dwells thino Kternity 1 PRIOR (breaking into wild laughter). Ua ! Ha ! tho thunder speaks ! (suddenly pausing.) Shall I or ? NOFJO. Come !— An 'twere tho devil himself—revenge to find ! PRIOR (seising him furiously by the hand). Ha !—thank thee, Owlet, for thy lullaby ! Yes, Hell !—Hero tako my whole self's dedication !— That laughter, is't tho expression of thy joy ? •C. IV.] THE TLMHata IX Cïrltl». 2-3
