Dark- ness was falling rapidly-the more rapidly because of the swiftly ap- proaching storm that came sweeping across trie desolate moors. The wind came in quick, sullen gusts, to die away ns suddenly again, and leave the country for a brief space breathless, airless and afraid; und euch new gust of storm-wind was fiercer and more threatening than the hist. Tho line' white dust on the winding road that lay ns fur us the eye could see for many miles behind, and again, dipping under the brow of the hill, continuing for as many miles before, went whirling and eddying in minia- ture whirlpools; and in a coppice close by the frightened twittering ot birds gave evidence conclusive of the coming tempest.
