Aa Autumn Joy.
It is ft fair aatmual day,
Tho ground is strewn with yellow
he maple stems glotm baro '?nd gray, :
The grain is bound in goldon sheaves;
Afar I nfttr tho noeoklnd nnft?e
Pipo shrilly 'mid the stubble dry,
And muffled boat* from bony flails
Within tho barn near by.
Tho latest roeos now are dead,
Their petals aoattorod far and wide,
.Thosumao norrios, richly red.
Bedeck the lane on either eide;
A dreary calm is in tho air
A dreamy echo on the sea;
Ah, never was a day moro fair
Than this, which blesses mci
I see tho shooks of ripened corn
The yollowcd mosses on tho roof,
The diamond dew-drops of the morn,
That string with gems tho spider's
An aznro haze is hanging low
About tho oui lino of thc bills,
And chanting sea-fowl Southward go
From marshes, flats and kills.
JPor many years tho autumn brought
A solemn sadness to my soul
It sombrcd o'en my lightest thought,
And od my gayest moments stoic :
Twas sad, yet swoct-a strange alloy
Of hopo and sorrow intertwined
This autumn bringa mo only loy,
Mo shadow haunts my mind.
And why is this? The dead loaves fall
Tho blo-aotna wither as of old;
And winter comes, with snowy pall,
To wrap the earth ao chill and cold ;
The sea-fowl, strang athwart tho sky,
Still ohant their plaintive mon?tono
And why, when leaves and blossoms die,
Should I feel joy alono?
Ofa, ask mo not-I moat not toll;
- i dare not all my heart disclose
A fairy wove a magio spell
Around me, when deoayod tho rose;
Two gifts did fading summer bring
Two symbols of unfading bliss
Upon my finger glows a ring,
Upon my lips-a kiss.
XtSTBRT OF THE THATCHED
Daring the next day I, as usual,
failed of courage to speak to my aunt.
I desired one of the maids to sleep
on the oouoh in my room, keeping
this arrangement a secret. The fol?
lowing night I felt come little com?
fort from the presence of a second
person ner me; but the girl soon fell
asleep. Lying awake in fearful ex?
pectation, I was visited by a repeti?
tion of the previous night's horror.
I beard tho.foot-step a second time.
I Buffered secretly in this way for
about a week. I had become so palo
?nd nervous, that I was only like n
shadow of my former self. Time
hung wretchedly upon my hands. I
only prized the day inasmuch as it
was a respite from the night; the ap?
pearance of twilight coming on at
evening invariably threw mo into an
.gae fit of shivering. I trembled at
% shadow; I screamed at a sudden
noise. My aunt groaned over me, and
sent for the doctor.
I said to him, "Doctor, I am only
a little moped. I have got a bright
idea of curing myself. You must
prescribo me a school-fellow."
Hereupon Aunt Featherstone be?
gan to ride off on her old hobby
about tho loneliness, the unhealthi?
ness and total objectionableness ol
the Thatched House, bewailing hei
own weakness in having allowed her?
self to be forced into buying it. She
never mentioned the word "haunt?
ed," though I afterward knew that al
the very time, and for some weekf
previously, she had been in full pos
session of the story of the nightly
loot-step. The doctor recommender'
me a complete change of scene; bul
instead of taking advantage of this, 1
asked for a companion at the Thatch
The prescription I had begged foi
was written in the shape of a note tc
Ada Hivers, imploring ber to come
to me at once. "Do oome now," J
wrote; "I have a mystery for you tc
explore. I will toll you about il
when we meet." Having said sc
mach, I knew that I should not bi
Ada Hivers was a tall, robust girl
with the whitest teeth, th erares
complexion, and the clearest lough ]
have over met with in the world. Tc
be near her made one feel healthiei
both in body and mind. She wai
one of those lively, fearless pooph
who love to meet a morbid horroi
face to face, and put it to rout. Whei
I wrote to her, "Do oome, for I aa
sick, I was pretty sure she would
obey the summons; but when I add
ed, "I have a mystery for you to ex
ploro," I was oonvinoed of her com
pliance beyond the possibility of i
It wanted just one fortnight o
Christmas day when Ada arrived a
the Thatched House. For some lit
tie time beforehand, I had busioi
myself so pleasantly in making pre
parations, tbat I bad almost forgot
ton the weoping lady, and had no
heard tho foot-step for two nights
And whoo, on tho first cvoniug of ho
arrival, Ada stopped into tho haunt
ed dining-room in her trim Mowin
robe of crimson oashmere, with ho
dark hair bound closely round he
eomely hoad, and ber bright eyes clew
with thut frank unwavering light G
theirs, I felt as if her wholesome pre
sonco had banished dread at once
and that ghosts could surely nove
harbor in the same house with he
free step and genial laugh.
"What is tho matter with you?
said Ada, putting her hands on m
shoulders, and looking in my face
"You look like a changeling, you lil
ile whito thing? When shall I gc
.leave to explore yonr mystery?"
"To-uight," I whispered, nnd,
looking round rae quickly, shudder?
ed. Wo woro standing on tho hearth
j be?bro the blazing fire, on tho very
spot whero that awful foot-Btop would
pass and reposa through tho long,
dark, unhappy hours, after our lights
had been ?xtingnished, and cur heads
laid upon our pillows.
Ada laughed at mo and culled me a
little goose, but I could soe that she
was wild with ouriosity, and eager
for bed-time to arrive. I had ar?
ranged that we should both occupy
my room, in order that, if there was
anything to bo heard, Ada might
hear it. i:And now, what is all this
that I havo to learn?" Baid she, aftor
our door had boen fastoned for tho
night, and wo sat looking at one an
othor, with our dressing-gowns upon
As I had expected, a long ringing
laugh greeted tho recital of my dole?
ful tale. "My dear Lucy!" cried
Ada, "my poor sick littlo moped
Lucy, you surely don't mean to say
that you believo in such vulgar things
"But I cannot help it," I said. "I
have heard the foot-step no less than
seven times, und tho proof of it is
that I am ill. If you were to sleep
alone in this room every night for a
month, you would get siok, too."
"Not a bit of it," said Ada, stoutly;
and sbo sprang up and walked about
tho chamber. "To think of getting
discontented with this pretty room,
this exquisite littlo nest! No, I en?
gage to sleep here ovcry night for a
month-alone, if you please-and nt
tho end of that time, I shall not only
be still in perfect health, my unro?
mantic self, but 1 promise to have
cured yon, you little, absurd, ima?
ginative thing! And now lot us go
to bed, witbout another word on tho
subject. 'Talking it over,' in a cuso ol
thia kind, always docs a vast amount
Ada always meant what sho said.
In half an hour we woro both in bed,
without a further word being ?poker
on thc matter. So strengthened nod
ro-assured was I by her strung, hup
py presence, that, wearied out by tlx
excitement of the day, I was quickly
fast asleep. It was curly next morn
ing when I wakened nguiu, and th)
red, frosty sun was ribing above tin
trees. When I opened my eyes, tin
first object they mot was Ada, sitting
in the window, with her forobeai
against tho pane, and her hand
locked in her lap. Sho was very pale
and her brows were knit in perploxei
thought. I had never seen her loo]
so strangely before.
A swift thought struck mo.
started up, and cried, "O Ado! foi
give me for going to sleep so soon
I know you havo heard it.
Sho unLnit her brows, roso fror
her seat, and came and sat down o
the bod beside mo. "I cannot den
it," she said gravely; "I have hear
it. Now tell me, Lucy, doos you
aunt know anything of this?"
"I am not sure," I said; "I cannc
be, because I am afraid to ask ber.
rather think that she has heard som
of the stories, and is anxiously tr;
ing to hide them from me, li ttl
thinking of what I had suffered hen
She has boen very dull lately, and n
pines constantly about tho pureba?
of the old house."
"Well," said Ada, "we must te
her nothing till we havo sifted th
matter to tho bottom."
"Why, what are you going to do'
I asked, beginning to tremble
"Nothing very dreadful, litt
coward!" she said, laughing; "on

It was in vain that I tried to dissuai

During the morning, it happen
that 1 often caught Ada with 1
eyes fixed keenly on Aunt Feath
stono's face, especially when onco
twico the dear old lady sighed p
fouudly, and tho shadow of an un;
countable cloud settled down up
her troubled brows. Ada pondei
deeply iu the intervals of our conv
sation, though hor merry coranii
and apt suggestion wero always rea
os usual when occasion seemod tot
on them. I noticed also that i
made excuses to exploro rooms a
passages, and found means to obsc
and exchange words with the fi
vants. Ada's bright eyes wero i
usually wide opou that day. 1
me, I hung about her like a mu

Bed-time arrived too quickly; t
when we wore shut in together hu

of in the morning, aud to look I

Such praying, however, was useh
Ada bsd resolved upon a e A
thing to do, and this boing tho case,
Ada was tho girl to do it.
Wo said our pray ors, vre sot tffe
door ajar, wo extinguished our light
[ arid we trent to bed. An hour T?O
lay awake, and heard nothing to alarm
us. Another silent hour wont past,
and still the sleeping house waa un?
disturbed. I had began to hope that
the night would pasa by without ac?
cident, and had just commenced to
doze a little and to wander into a
confused dream, when a sudden
squeezing o? my hand, whieh lay in
Ada's, startled me quickly into con?
I opened my eyes; Ada was sitting
erect iu tho bed, with her fuco sot
forward, listening, and hor oyes fas?
tened ou the door. Half smothered
with four, I raised myself on my
elbow and listened too. Yes, oh,
horror! thero it was-tho soft, heavy,
unshod foot-step going down tho cor?
ridor ontsido tho door. It paused at
tho top of tho stair-case, and began
slowly descending to the bottom.
"Adah!" I whispered, with a gasp.
Her hand wus damp with fear, and
my face was drenched in a cold dow.
"In God's namel" she sighed, with a
long-drawn breath; and then she
crept softly from tho bed, throw on
her dressing-gown, and wont swiftly
away out of tho already opon door.
What I suffered ia tho next few
minutes I oould never describe, if I
spent tho remainder of my lifo ip. en?
deavoring to do so. I remember au
interval of stupid horror; while lean?
ing on my elbow in the bed, I ??zed
with a fearful, fascinated stare at the
half-open door beside meC Then,
through the silence of tho night, there
oame a cry.
It seemed to como straggling up
through tho flooring from th?fdining
room underneath. It sounded wild,
suppressed, smothered, and was
quickly hushed away into stillness,
broken by fitful, coufused murmurs.
Unable to endure tho suspense lunger,
I sprang ont of bod, rushed dowu the
stairs, nnd found myself standing in
the gray darkness of tho winter's
night, with rattling teeth, at tho door
of the haunted dining-room.
"Ada! Ada!" I sobbed out, in my
shivering terror, and thrust my baud
against the heavy panel. Tho door
opened with me, I staggered in, and
saw-a stout, whito figure, Kitting
bolt upright in an arm chair, aud
Ada standing quivering in convul?
sions of laughter by its side. I fell
forward on tho floor! but before I
faiuted quite, I heard a merry voice
ringing through the darkness:
"O, Lucy!your Aunt Featherstone
is the gho8ti"
When I recovered my senses, I was
lying in bed, with Ada and my aunt
both watching by my side. Tho poor
dear old lady had so brooded over
the ghost-stories of tho house, and
so selfishly denied herself the relief
of talking them over with me, that,
pressing heavily on her thoughts,
they had unsettled ber mind in sleep,
Consequently, ruminating on the tor
ror of that ghostly walk, she had un?
consciously risen, night after night,
and most cleverly accomplished it
herself. Comparing dates, I found
that she had learned the story of the
spirit only a few days before tho
night on which I had first been ter?
rified by tho footstep.
Tho news of Aunt Foatherstono's
escapade flew quickly through the
house. It caused so many laughs,
that tho genuine ghosts soon fell into
ill-repute. The legend of tho weep?
ing lady's rambles became divested
of its dignity, and grow therefore to
be quite harmless. Ada and I laughed
over our adventure every night dur?
ing tho rest of her stay, and entered
upon our Christmas festivities with
right good-will. I have never for?
gotten to be grateful to Ada for that
good service which she rendered me;
and as for Aunt Featherstone, I must
own that she never again said one word
in disparagement of tho Thatched
