'\ e next flid her in a broader s',here, upon the
boards of Matgire's Opera Hiuse, the leading
ti-ster -on the Pacific coar. wheure, after a bril
hatl it gagement, she departed on a tour through
the 'Sae and into Nevada, where she appeared in
Virginia City, and literally astonished the natives.
After her return to San Francisco, a trip to the
Statesa was proposed. Already the fame of her
tlent, ard of the golden opinion. she had won,
behad preceded her. So, in 1064, behold Lotta and
her paretsi arrived in lew York. Niblo's saloon
was engaged, a company was organised of uhob
materal as was beet calculated for the display of
LOs's especial taleuts, and under tue manu-es
me nt of her other, the entertainmeat, a dramatic
one, was thrown open to thb public. It received
the aseport of all the Californians returned or
visiting then in that city, and the press critics
spoke an favorable terms of the young actress.
Neverthtltss, the undertaking was no" apn the
whole a socese, continuing only for a few uights.
At that tinm Mr. J..hu E. McDfnongh, who has
since brought out the " lItack Crook." was about
setting out on a tour for the di-play of the spec
ta(c ar drama, the '" Seven histers," which had
made subh a hilat loura Keene's. He had seen
Lotta, and reoognising her talent. engaged her to
travel with his troupe in the role of Slztnrael,.
Tee engagement lasted for six mon'he or so, do
ring w.ich time audiences in most of the large
cities of the North and West had, for the first
tire. an opportunity of admiring one destined to
bec n.e so greatly a favorite. She next entered
into an engagement with Mr. It. F. Wnitman, who
has since brought out the " White Fawn." to
travel in the same character--S.-t rt Plia -and did
so most profitably both to hersell and the man
l:ut Lctta was not alwavsy destined thus
to employ her talents for the benefit of
others. icr three years since she entered upon a
aertes of star engagem, ot, upon h'r own ac
(titut sard with what success results have shown.
J thn B;roncham wrote for her that favorite play.
"Little Nell. or the Marchioness," otn which, by
thlie way. -he artpears to-morrow evening, with
Ben I)relar as Dck .eic-ieUv r) and in this, a dra
matization of l)ickens'r "Old Curiosity Shop," it
may be scid hei laid the foundation of her dram
tic' career. From time to time since then new
perces have been written for and played by lher,
one ,f them being the present attraction at the
b'. ('hatles. "Firefly." dramatized from Outda's
' Utder 'Iwo Flags," by Edward Falconer. of
London, author of " Mee of the Day," "Peep o'
Dlay " ad other successful plays.
Lofta has been twice abroad, viz: in the s'm.
ners of 1-7 and lt;, but only as a traveler alu
not in any professional capacity. At her rest
dence in New York since her retern from Ear-ops
she has busied herself in mastering the F'reinch
language aend in learning the mysteries of the rat
aplan. Of her proficiency in either her character
" Firefly " gives, we think, abundant evidencs.
She will remain with us for two weeks lo-ger this
season. appearing in most of the characters which
have won her the enviable reputation she enjoys.

her darling bybil to gain our wish; and she then
bade as take bltnkets and other things to make
tie room comfortable. There was fiat rebellion
when we wanted some of the servuts to go ethe
room. light a fire and make the bed, and Mrs.
Aringtoa woeld not compel them to go, u she
said if we choose to do so foolish a thing we
must be our own servant for that time and take
the things needed ourselves; she would not make
the servants go In that part of the house after
night, when they were so afraid of it."
The Arntes mYa s was he e of the dest
houses in the Btate of Virginia, and though there
had been modern additions that gave all the com
forts of the present age, there were portione of It
that retained all the quaint prettinessee and gro
tetqee hideousness of the follies of several gen
erators of owners, and in this pan of the house
the blue chamber lay. Whether it was really
visited by the dead, no one of the present day
knew. for it had not been slept in for thirty year ;
hobut Sybil had often told us of its legend. when
school-girl like we would lie down sai tell mar
ro -freeinug tales at the witching hour of mid
night. This is it:
dome sixty years before the date of my story
Bugh Arlington, the owner of the estate, had toost
his fret wife, a dame of nan hty and imperious
temper, who, dying suddenly, left him two sweet
little girls to console him for her loss. His mar
riage having been one of interest rather than
affection, people were not astonished that he was
not inconsolable, though they were tempted to
reprove when he selected a young and giddy girl
of seventeen to take the place of mother to his
lihttle gIrls. Inat Hugh was a man who would
" gang his sin gate" and ask no leave. He was
derperately smitten by the beautiful girl, who.
ti ough of good family, was painfully poor, and
behd been raeed with the one idea of making a
gocd marriage. So, when Hugh. who, though in
Lins forty-fifth year, was a hale, fine-looking man,
offered her hbs hand and a settlement of forty
thousand dollars, she was far from saying no. It
was shortly after their return from their bridal
tour that the young Mrs. Arlington, who was pas
sionately ford of dress, had gone to the blue
roam, which had been the first Mrs. Arlington's
bed room, and opening the dressing-cases, had
taken out the rich heavy silks, satins and velvets
that had been the wardrobe of her predecessor,
and was overlooking them when suddenly she sew
a stately lady standlng before her, who said in a
stern voice, " Let those dresses alone, madam,
they belong to my daughters, an- are not
for such as you. Touch them not."
Wh a shriek that resounded through the house
Mrs. Arlington fainted, and when her husband
and the servants reached her, was in strong con
vulsions. When restored to sensibility she shed
deringly told her husband what she had seen,
and begged him to take her away from the
place. This he did, and it was some years be
tore they returned, and then that'portion of the
hboouse was closed, as he had built the large and
ci mmodiuns modern addition now oceopted by
the family. The two little girls of the first wife
died before reaching womanhood, and the rooms
weire not ooened or even entered daring the
rile of Hugh Arlington and his wife. At their
death the property tell to a nephew of llugh,
Sybil's grandfather, and, though he and his
farity paid but little atteniou to the tile of its
be-irs occupied by a ghostly inhahitant, they
found the modern portion of the house sntticient
for the f::nriy, and the rooms were only
oietred once or twice a year to be aired, ad
tLeis some of the white family had to go with
the servan's to insure that it was dine, so great
w:o the terror of those roonms.
Not even old Maumy would light us up there
that night, and the poor old woman cried bitterly
as she begged hb.r young mistr-ess to give up the
i:(ta. lIut lt.ghing :t her fears we ran up the
reat Itight ot stairs into the main hall leading
it.,o tlhe older part of the house, ard turning down
