more raps. This, time I opened the door
but everything was quiet. Tlie silence
was almost unbearable for a few min

The silence srrcw more oppressive, and

could not understand those rappings, al
.vays three, and seeming to be at the
door, but perhaps somewhere ele. Fi
nally the clock not chimed but fairly
shrieked out the hour of eleven, and the
sounds wandered restlessly around the
corners of the room; some of them ven
tured into the hall, and a few started up
the lonely stairway, but these hurried
hack as if they dreaded to leave the light.
Then came that dreadful silence ag u;;
then a low, wailing sound started from
somewhere in the upper part of the
building and wandered from room to
room, growing more lonely as it ad
vanced. Then thoe three raps came
gain; then more raps were heard, doors
eemed to opea and close violently, a
damp breath swept through the house;
the three raps seemed to change to three
teps, winch ever and anon seemed to is-
uo from some one of the many closet-:;

that damp, unearthly breath swept over

ail v as heard, and a sound as of some
one gasping for breath, then came those
footfalls again. Then came that awful
silence aga'U. I could feel my heart
beating w ildly, and wild fancies w hirled
through my brain. Minutes seemed
lengthened into hours, the fire ceased to
flicker and the burning logs turned grey
with ashes; to me it might have been with
years, the lire shovel looked as if it had
not moved for ages, so slowly did time
pass away .
