cannon up the stairs and fired it through the door. I suppose the barricade which I had placed against the door must have been dislodged by the shock, and in a moment my room was filled with men or ghosts, I knew not which. I could smell the brimstone and hear the stamping of the cloven feet upon the floor. Then I saw their terrible horns glittering in the uncertain light which their leader carried. I knew that I must be in the presence of some of the inhabitants of the lower regions. Suddenly all was blank to me, and when I recovered my senses I found myself dripping wet by the side of the fountain. I hurried back to my room, trembling at every step as I groped my way through the darkness. I was too badly frightened to light a lamp at first, but sat thinking in the da rk. I found a match at last and lit the lamp, but am determined to sit up all night for fear they may come again. Never before has home seemed so dear to me. I have just got up from the bed where I have been laying for a few moments and gone to take a look at that dear lock of Susie ' s hair. This has reminded me of my diary ; so I have decided to write as best I can all that has happened to me in this terrible hour and a half. September 9. I am writing this on board the train. I do not know how I came to go to sleep last night, for I was fully determined to keep awake all night. It must have been half past eight or nine o ' clock this morning when I was awakened by a knock at the door, and before I had time to answer two men in full uniform entered. One of these I recognized as the lieutenant who had spoken so harshly to me the other day. He stopped in the middle of the floor and seemed astonished. I raised myself up in bed and said to him. " Ha ! you are the fellow that was up here last night and fired the cannon in my door. " He advanced a step or two and said, " I ' ll fire you through the door, young man, if I ever find you in bed another morning when I come round on inspection. What ' s the reason you are having your room in any such condition as this and a lamp burning side of your bed? " I jumped out of my bed in my night shirt. " Come to attention, there ! " he said, " what do you mean by such conduct as this any- how? " " I don ' t know, " I replied, " and I am going home today if I get a chance. " " Well, you had better ; you ' ll never amount to anything here if you can ' t get up before nine o ' clock in the morning. " Turning to the man who was with him, he said, " Give this man ten demerits. " Then he threw an angry scowl at me and went out. I dressed myself as quickly as possible, and without thinking of breakfast, packed my trunk, and had just time to catch the train for Gill. I don ' t know what papa will say, but I have made up my mind that I was not cut out for a college man. N. B. — This Freshman ' s hard luck was probably due more to his superabundant verdure, credulity, and lack of experience, rather than to any inherent spirit of malignity on the part of the professors or students. — [Eds.]
