" the train i was to take i said gasping. Yes a am. Too bad but can t be helped. Harness will give out some times you know sympathizing by. " when is the next Western train due " not till six o clock. You be five hours to wait. Be fretful tiresome a am. There s a Nice family that lives in t other part o the House s Poso i tote Yujin there v i know mrs. Holly will give you a bite o big than ter eat and Shell be proud to let you rent on her spare bed. Fine woman mrs. Holly is i know her. Won t you go in and see her a am a " no i thank you sir. I dare say that i la requite comfortable " Wall just As you please. But now i must be Gold. Hope that you la get to your Jurner s end Safe a am. Good by. " and Farmer f Brown left the room mounted has Wagon and soon disappeared Down the Dusty Road. I had been visiting a Friend who lived in a country settlement some five or six Miles from he solitary building the name of depot and when the time came for me to return Home she placed me in with a neighbouring Farmer who Wab going to a Distant Vil Lage and would pass the station. During our ride we met with an Acci Dent. Tart of the harness gave Way and we were detained such a length of time that As the Reader knows i was too late for the train. After Farmer Brown left me i amused myself by Reading a newspaper which some one had left lying on the seat. Finishing this i studied the design of the Wall paper counted the panes of Glass in the Little window and wondered at the tidiness of the whole apart ment. " country depots Are generally such vile dirty places. Wonder Why this is an exception i said to myself. Then a thought struck me. Of probably the place a kept clean by the mrs. Holly Over whose Vitues Farmer Brown was so enthusiastic. Wonder if this same worthy female would give me a Glass of water a and i tapped on the door communicating with the other apartments. " come in said a cheery voice and entering i found myself in one of the prettiest Coz Iest rooms i had Ever seen. The most delicate tint of Bluff was on the Walls Cool matting covered the floor Muslin curtains festooned with Ivy Hung at the windows and Here and there were books brackets pictures and Flowers and All the Dainty belongings that make a room look so Home Lik e and pleasant. And most charming of All there Lay in a White drape d Cradle a ropy baby fast asleep with rings of Golden hair Fulling Over his White brow and a great red velvety Rose clasped in his dimple hand. Over him Bent a woman of Twenty two or three years a Little mite of a woman with a Bright dark face vivid. Big Black eyes and wondrous dark hair wound in heavy braids about her stately head. She arose with a smile when i entered. " excuse me but May i trouble you for a Glass of water a i said. " no trouble at Allma am. Pray be seated. Excuse me and she left the room. I re sentry one returned bringing a Salver covered with a Snow Whit e nop. Kin and containing a Glass of water a Glass of creamy milk a Saucer of Lua. Clous red strawberries and a plate of sponge cake Light As yellow foam. " Pardon me she said smiling " if i take too great a Liberty but you see Farmer Brown told me of your being obliged to wait so Long and i thought inn my clip. Phi Inorg a o of j Why How very kind you Are i exclaimed in pleased Surprise. " not at All. It s a pleasure to me. If you Are hot and Dusty perhaps you d like to Bathe your face. If to just step in and she led the Way into a Little White bedroom the very heart of cleanliness and purity. In a Little while was a different be ing from the Cross Dusty hungry mor Tal who had sat la the hot waiting room. I found mrs. Holly a perfect Little Gem of a woman and after the manner of our sex we soon became As Well acquainted As if we had known each other for years. And while i was lying languidly upon her comfortable sofa and she seated in her Low rocking Chal r stitching away at her baby s dress told me the one Romance of her life. " i have lived in this Little depot All my Days Ehe began. " my father was agent Here and he served the company to Long and so Well that when he died they kindly allowed me to remain in his place with the same wages too. For you see i was seventeen and father had Long before taught me telegraphy and All the other work. About a year after father s death i became acquainted with Jack Jack Holly my husband and mrs. Holly looked up and smiled. " Jack was one of the Best engineers on the Road and is now too and every body considered him an honest Likely Young fellow. He thought the world of me and we became engaged. But you know How girls Are the weakest of them can make a Strong Man a weak White girl held All his Heartstrings in her Small White hand i said. Yes and i dare say i often pulled Jack s Heartstrings rather hard but he was gentle and patient when i flirted with the country lads and when i was wild and wayward he did t remonstrate. But one Day there came along a Kiclty Chap who engaged Board for the sum Mer at a farm hous e in the neighbor Hood. " this Clarence Gevarges As he was called was handsome Well Dresse and had that polished indescribable air that is so fascinating to most Billy girls. Jack was kind and but he did t have a bit of style about him and style was what i doted on in those Days to i snubbed Jack and smiled on or. Gevarges when he offered his attentions. I flirted most dreadfully with him till even generous Jack was Dis pleased. " one morning looking Roin what grave and sad he came into the ticket offic e. The last passenger was gone and the train was moving out. Jack s train had stopped to take freight. " Well How Long la thing going to last said Jack. " what thing a i snapped out. " Why this affair with Gevarges. I see it is going beyond a Mere Flirta Tion a Pray what of it Only that i do not want my future wife s name joined with that of a Jack paused then added earnestly " Well i warn you against this fellow. Who knows what he is v " or. Gevarges is a perfect gentle Man and that is More than one can say of borne others i said hotly and then some Demon prompted me too add " and or. Holly in regard to your future wife i believe i do not aspire to that Honor and Here is your ring i Drew off the Little Golden baud and handed it to him. " 1 Nell do you mean to do this a inquired Jack with White has. " yes i do. I m tired of your carping and criticising. The affair May be ended now and forever i said pet Tashly. " to be it then. Good by said Jack and without another word he left the room. To Tell the truth i had t meant half what i said and every minute sex. Petted that Jack would kiss me and we would make up but now he had gone forever. A Mist came yer my eyes As i watched his fast disappearing train and i would have indulged in a Good cry but just then the special came puffing up and the president of the Road came in. He was a kind old gentleman whom i had known Bince i was a wee girl. " Good a miss Nellie everything prosperous i Hope. Will you do me a favor a " certainly sir if i can " Well you see when we were com ing Down i met a gentleman who owed me some Money. Paid me by Hundred dollars and now i Don t know what to do with it As we Are going up into the Woods to see about laying out a new rail Road. We shall begone two Days. Don t want to take the Money with Ine will you take charge of it while i m gone a " if you la Trust me " bless my Sou i yes of course. Here s the Money. Must hurry away Good Mornin scarcely had portly or. Sayre trotted away before or. Gevarges came saunter ing in. " got quite a Little sum t you miss Nellie 1" eyeing the Bills in my hand. " yes i replied laughing. Or Sayre has made me his banker. Look i six Hundred dollars How Rich i should feel if it were mine " you deserve to have much More and doubtless that pretty face la win it. " somehow his bold compliment failed to please and to it was with coldness that i said " take a chair or. Devar Ges " no i thank you miss Nellie. Have an appointment. But will you allow me to Call this evening " " Well i scarcely think i shall be at Home. You know Mother and sister Lulu Are away and a Little while ago got word from grandma saying that perhaps i had better come and stay All night with her. " it was True that i bad received such word from grandma but i had no thought of accepting it. I had hoped that Jack would come and make up a. And of course i did t care to have or. Gevarges Call at the same time. " what will you do with your Money miss Nell v carelessly inquired or. Dev Arges. " of i shall put it right Here in this drawer. No one knows about it and it will be perfectly secure " dare say Good Mornin and with a courtly Bow my admirer left All during the Day i busied myself about my duties and when night came i put on the dress Jack liked Best and anxiously awaited his coming. " seven o clock i eight o clock i nine o clock the last train had come and gone and my duties for that Day were Over. I put out the Light in the ticket office went into the sitting Roo and sat and waited. Ten o clock half past ten no use waiting any longer he would t come. " i went to the door opened it and looked out. There seemed something weird about the whole landscape. Even the shadows seems alive. The sky was becoming overcast and the Moon peeped out of an inky Blac k Cloud. The frogs Down by the River were croaking Dis Mally the wind seemed to whisper and moan. I shivered with a nameless dread and closed the door. Went to bed and cried myself to sleep. 1 had slept an hour perhaps and then awoke with a sudden Start feeling a great difficulty in breathing a part of the quilt lad across my Mouth i thought but on reaching my hand to remove it i found that it was a hand kerchief saturated with what s Chloro form. " a thrill of terror passed Over me who had done this r v As there some one in the House ? " i half arose and gazed about me. All was dark except a Little Ray of Light falling through the partially closed door. " i silently arose and just then almost screamed in fear when a sudden sound smote upon my ear. It was Only the clock striking the hour of Midnight. I placed my hand upon my heart to sooth its fierce throbs. " stepping along carefully avoiding All obstacles i reached the door opened it and glanced into the Slettin Roo no one was there but some one was in the ticket office for i saw a Light and heard a voice i what did they want v the Money of the Money left in my charge 1 somebody was stealing it and what should i say to or. Sayre ? my Godl i might be accused of taking it myself and thus lose Honor and Posi Tion i " rather lose life i said to myself. I la defend that Money under death 1 and i looked about for some weapon. " under the stove was a Large Iron poker. Seizing it carefully i started toward theoflice Doo r. The Light fell upon the Mirror reflecting my figure and i be often thought since with sick feeling of horror what a picture of desperation i was Clad in my flowing White nigh dress my hair All unbound my face White As Marble eyes dilated and glittering with a strange steely Light. God Aid me i said with White lips and then opening the door of the office i stole softly in. A Man with his Back toward me was at the other end of the room. He had forced open the drawer taken out the Money and was look ing Glo tingly at the Crisp Green Bills when i stole behind him. I had just raised the poker to strike him when he glanced around. " my god 1 it was Clarence Gevarges " hang it 1 now i suppose i la have to kill this pretty he seized me by the Throat and uttering a faint cry i Sank Down. Just then Jack my own dear Jack rushed in. I heard oaths blows fierce struggling then All was dark for the first time in my life i fainted. Vine in recovered Jack s race was bending Over me and Jack s voice utter ing Loving words. I put my about his neck and cried like a weak baby. Aren t you Hurt Jack a " not a bit Dearest. Gevarges is disa bled though with a pistol Woun d in Hla leg. To fun t very severe but it will pre vent his " but How came you there v " Why you see when we parted this morning Nell i thought i d never see you again but it after i came Home i made up my mind to come round and try and make up it was pretty late Between nine and ten when i came and who should i see prowling around but Gevarges. Thinks i 4 what does he want if he s come Why Don t he go in instead of peeping in the window r " i rather thought he was a scamp be cause when i was in the City yesterday the chief of police told me that they had reason to think that a noted Gambler and Black be g had come up in these parts. He gave a description and it suited Gevarges perfectly All excepting a moustache. And Nell that Silky moustache you so much admired was fake and fell off in our scuffle 1 53 Well is i said i saw Gevarges prowling about and i thought i d see what he was up to. He looked in at the window at you and i heard him mutter the Tak Eitl she in at All what made her Sny she was Gold to her grandmother s for r now i sup pose i la have to wait till my pretty Bird s asleep " so he sat Down under one tree and i sat Down under another. We both saw you when you opened the door and looked out. After you had been in bed about an hour Gevarges forced open the sit ting Roo window and crawled in. While he was in the office lighting the lamp i also got in at the window and concealed myself in the closet and Well you know All the Jack said i tearfully you la for give me for being naughty and wayward and you la believe when i say that i loved you All the time won t you a " Well a am Jack said he would and we be been Happy Ever since. And this is my Story a am my Only to the haunted chamber. Room in the principal inn of a country town had the reputation of being haunted. Nobody would sleep in it and it was therefore shut up. But it so happened that at an election the inn was quite full and there was Only the haunted room unoccupied. A gentle Man s gamekeeper came to the inn exceedingly fatigued by a Long journey and wanted a bed. He was informed that unless he chose to occupy the haunted room he must seek a bed else where. Haunted exclaimed he stuff and nonsense i la sleep in it ghost or Demon i la take a look at what haunt s it accordingly after fortifying himself with a pipe and a Tankard he took up his quarters in the haunted chamber and retired to rest. He had not Laid Down Many minutes when the bed Shook under him most fearfully. He sprang out of bed struck a Light for he had taken the precaution to place a Box of Lucifer matches by Hia bedside and made a careful Examina Tion of the Ronij but could discover nothing. The courageous fellow would not re turn to bed but remained watching for some time. Presently he saw the bed shake violently the floor was firm nothing moved but the bed. Determined if possible to find out the cause of his be quake he looked in the bed and near the bed and not see ing anything to account for the shaking which now and then seemed to seize on the bed he at last pulled it from the Wall. Then the murder came the sign boar d of the inn was fastened to the outer Wall by a nut and Crew which came through to the Back of the bed and when the wind swung the sign Board to and fro the movement was communicated to the bed causing it to shake in a violent manner. The gamekeeper delighted at having hunted up the ghost informed the land lord next morning of the real nature of his unearthly visitor and was handsomely rewarded for rendering a room j hitherto useless now quite serviceable. All the ghost stories on record might no doubt have been traced to similar sources if those to whom the " ghosts appeared had been As plucky As our Garn keeper. A dog by the Pound. A Well know n Memphis Coal dealer not Long a big dog of wonder Ful so Galty. He the dog stayed around the Coal Yar and whenever a Coal cart was hauled on the Scales the dog always took a stand under the Wagon like a coach do he weighed nearly one Hundred pounds and was weighed As Coal thousands of times and nearly every in the City Pur chased that dog at so much per Pound. The practice went on for months r and was Only discovered by a funny Acci Dent. A negro wanted a barrel of Coal and wheeled a hand cart with Coal on the weighing scale s. The clerk in the office worked at the Scales and hallowed through the window " take out a lot of that the negro did so and kept on until All the Coal was out of the cart. The clerk took the Scales again but the pea Indica ted too much. " take out More Coal shouted the clerk you have a boat Load of Coal on that " look hear Boss replied the negro " the Coal is All out and i la have to take the wheels off the cart if you want to lighten then the negro looked under the cart and seeing the big fat dog at his Post exclaimed " lord Massa you s Selling me that dog for Coal. The dog was missed in a few Days and was found dead on the Scales the Ani Mal having taken some Poison Accident ally but he came Back to die at his Post. It was a Fine example of " faithful unto
