THE PHANTOM OP DEADMOrit TdWl'.K.
"The proprietor of this medieval placo
was a couple pf centuries or so in advauce
of it, certainly; but still he was very old
fashioned. He met me at the gate in the
most courtly manner; indeed, I took him at
first ipr a sort of heraldic butler, and very
nearly addressed .him with: 'What ho!
.seneschal. * But, fortunately, he iutroduoed
himself as Mr. Bantyen before I had time
to say it,
"He showed me up to my room himself,
was extremely anxious to make mo comfort?
able, and apologized for everything.
"He was a portly old gentleman, witb
gray hair, prominent eyes, and rather n
weak, undecided expression of countenance,
and he was dressed like ono of Soymour'f
caricatures, in a short-waisted coat-name
Jy, cut very Ligh in the collar-a table
cloth rolled round his neck for a tie, panta
loons and pumps.
. ?'When I was left alone, I inspected thc
room, thc furniture of which would hav<
set up a curiosity shop. It was panellec
with oak; and the heavy, high-backet
chairs, the table, the tall wardrobe, were al
of the same dark material. Thero was i
queer mirror, composed of three pieces, se
aslant at the further end of thc room, so a
to reflect everything in it in a distorter
fashion ; and a pair of dueling swords wer
crossed over the high, carved chimney
piece. But the bed, my dear fellow, th
bed! Why, it filled half tho room, am
must have been originally intended for ai
entire family; the hangings wero thick am

"Poor Mr. Bantyen was very much per
turbed by the news, and began apologizing
to me; but I assured him, with perfect
truth, that I was fond of studying different
samples of my fellow-creatures, and counted
several scamps amongst my intimate ac?
quaintances. In truth, I have enjoyed tho
society of many a mnn who, from his youth
np, has been a source of nuxiety to his
friends, but I never mot a cooler card than
this Raymond Fletcher.
"I did not much like tho look of him; I
missed the rollicking, reckless look of the
genuino m?uvis sujet. His expression was
crafty, greedy and malicious, as well as im?
pudent, and he impressed one as being bad,
rather than mad.

as a good joke, and compared himself to a

that ho really had haunted the place.
"My host hud procured mo some par

stopped on, though the tower was not a vet

odious snob, and Mr. Bantyen, instead <
