My sister Deborah had always had a
?fency for the house^-a gable-roofed,
"broad-porticoed old stone house, standing
back from the house in the midst of a
square garden and fruit trees. And so
?when, in driving past one day, we saw the
. notice "To Let" posted upon the front
.,. gate, we alighted and walked up to the
graveled pathway to make inquiries.
An old negro woman opened the door
and showed us into the parlor, v, nen the
lady of the house soon appeared. She wns
a tall, slender and rather handsome
?woman, with bright, jet-black eyes and
hair, and a perfectly clear and colorless
complexion. She explained that she was
the owner of the house, and had lived here
alone with one servant since her husband's
death, about two years previous. The
house was too large for her use, and she
desired to let the main portion of it, re
taining the wiug of three rooms for her
use. The arrangement and terms suiting
ns, we soon came to an agreement, and in
less than two weeks thereafter, Deborah
and I were quietly established in our new
abode, a contented old maid and bachelor.
Deborah was ten years older than my
-.self, and had ever since my motherless in
fancy acted towards me a maternal part
"Wo were in what is called independent
-circumstances. I had a good business in
the city, and, finding my comfort well
cared for at home, had been very well
contented, and reached my fortieth year
?without having thought much upon the
subject of changing my bachelor condi
tion. Nor did such a thought seriously
present itself until?I may as well confess
it?until I had known our landlady, Mrs.
Arabella Crowle, long enough to come
ander the influence of her fascinations.
Under other circumstances, perhaps, it
?might have been different, but being
Thrown so frequently into her presence
seeing her at first nearly every day, in con
nection with certain proposed arrange
ments and improvements of the place, and
afterwards so often meeting her about twi
light accidently in the grounds, whiah by
mutual agreement remained open to both
iamilies?it was not strange, I thought,
that we should have been unconsciously
drawn into a closer mutual interest than
might have been the case under ordinary
?circumstances. She was not over 30 at
most, was clever and agreeable, and had
many little bewitching ways and express
ions, sometimes lively and sarcastic, some
times pathetic and tender, which exer
cise over me a peculiar fascination, almost
in spite of my own will. And so it came
to pass thp.c or ? evening in the twilight,
after supper, I with some embarrassment
ventured to broaeh to my sister the subject
of my marrying the Widow Crowle.
Deborah had never particularly fancied
her, and she now swept her pet tortoise
shell tabby cat out of her lap, and looked
at ms aghast
"Gracious goodness, Oliver! You don't
mean to say that you really?that Bhe?
that you are edgaged to marry that
"Not exactly engaged; that is, I have
aiever directly asked her to marry me, but
she knows?ahem! there Is what may be
called an understanding between us."
"Understanding!" exclaimed Deborah,
indignantly. "In my opinion you've no
.understanding whatever in the matter.
You don't understand that she's an artful,
designing woman, who has probably from
the very first been planning and manoeuv
ring to get you in her power. You don't
understand what her temper or aipualUua
or history may be. Now I have heard
fhinra from tbj^ neighbors. concerning all
? /uus which i scarcely caredfo repeat to
?you. but which, under present circum
stances, it is of course my bounden duty to
infom you of."
"What things?" I inquired, faintly.
??''First about her temper. She's a terma
gant! Look at her eyes! and if you could
hear her some days scolding that old black
woman, you'd know her better. A nice
henpecked husband you'd make! Why,
noighbors say it is more than suspected
that her husband committed suicide by
voluntarily taking the dose of morphine of
which he died?driven to it by the life she
Jed him And she's quarreled with all her
relations?which is the reason she happens
to be living so solitary and alone."
I pondered Deborah's words. I came
to the conclusion that I had been hasty
and imprudent, and had made r narrow
escape. And thenceforth avoided Ara?
But 6he didn't avoid me. Oh, no. On
the contrca-y, sho sought me assiduously.
She met me around street corners; she
waylaid me in the garden-alleys; and fin
ally she went to my office, and directing
the clerk to say that a lady wished to see
me on business, followed him into my in
ner office room, and there majestically de
manded to know the meaning of my late
What could I say?or do? Only deli
vsately suggest that she had misunderstood
my intentions. Only hint that though it
would delight me to remain her good and
?devoted friend, yet that a closer and more
intimate tie would scarcely contribute to
the happiness of either; and that?But
here she interrupted me.
"Do I understand," she said, looking
straight at me with her black and glitter
ing eyes, "that, in so many words, in short,
after all that has been said, after all our
plans and arrangements in regard to the
future, you now decline to keep, your
promise to marry me?"
"Pardon me; but there was no promise,
?-no positive proposal, on my part. A little
fiixtation such as ours-"
And then she interrupted mengain, and
startled and appalled me with an exhibi
tion of that temper which my prudent and
penetrating sister had attributed to her.
I will not describe the scene; I will not
repeat what she said?except the lost
' "You will find that I am not one to be
trifled with, or to tamely submit to an in
sult. I will be revenged! As long as I
live I will haunt your life, and make you
feel the intiuence of a wronged and in
sulted woman-" Here I must have
.smUed, for added with a concentrated
intensity of patsion?"And even if I die
before you do, I will haunt you then! Le
7iiember my v. (ivu3, and be sure of it!''
Then she left the office, and I never
again saw her?alive.
:. saw her, however, in her coffin the day
?of her funeral, two days after she hod
dropped dead of heart disease at a public
joucert. Deborah and- I, with a few
.leighbors, rode to the cemetery and saw
the collie lowered into the grave, and the
sod piled npon it. And then the wiug of
the house in which she had resided w;is
left shut up and silent, occupied only by
.the old negro woman, until, as we under
.stood, ii reiativo of hers could conic from
a distant state to look after the property.
I used to think of her sometimes, Walk
ing in the garden about twilight, but
always with a grateful, trembling sense
of the fn~.e which I had escaped. And if the
thought of her last threat ever crossed my
mind, it was only to be met with a smile,
?jt its childishness and absurdity.
So a week or two passed quietly. De
borah had "discharged our last servant,
and was absorbed in the trying and diffi
cult task of finding a new one who would
suit. And one morning I returned home
wondering whether, the girl just now on
trial would have my favorite Sally Lunn
properly cooked, or served as' her predo
cessor had done?a mass of heavy dough.
To my surprise, on my opening the
front door, Bridget?that was her name,
and the name bespeaks her nationality
came hastening up the.kitchen stairs to
"Av ye plnze, there's a leddy waitin' in
the librey to see yez.
"A lady? What lady?"
"Shure she didn't tell me her name. It's
quare," she added, in a lower tone, glanc
ing toward the library door, "but missu3
was gone out, an' I jist thought I heerd a
little bit of a noise, and when I come up,
there *!ie was a-stantlin' in the hall wid
her bonnet on. She said she wanted to see
yez and would wait a while. She's in there
I opened the library door, but the room
was empty. I turned to Bridget, who was
lingering in the hall.
"There is no one here," I said. The girl
came forward, and after staring around
and moving the curtains and opening a
"Howly Mosses! tut what's come o' the
leddy, at all? She was in here five min
utes ago, and she couldn't a' got out at the
2ront door widout my seein, her."
j "What did she look like?" I inquired,
i "Faix, she was a tall, slim, nice-looking
leddy, wid black eyes an' black hair, an'
a white face wid no more red in it than
My own face must have lost its color
for I felt a sudden nervous shock, and the
blood chilled, as It were, in my veins.
"How was she dressed?" I inquired.
"Black all over, an' a long crape veil."
This was Mrs. Crowle's dress. She had
been still in widow's weeds when I knew
"Bridget," I said, don't mention this to
your mistress. It might disturb her.
And though I found the Sally Lunn
done to perfection, and Deborah came
home in an uncommonly good humor,
from making certain dry-goods bargains
down town, I could not enjoy my
tea, and went to bed moody and bewild
I could not doubt that Bridget had seen,
or fancied she had seen, what she de
scribed; and yet what did it all mean?
It might indeed have been some other
lady than Arabella Crowle; but why
should a strange lady call to see me at my
home, and how did she enter and leave
Three days after this, on entering my
my office one morning, my clerk said,
"There was a lady to see you last even
ing after you left. She said she would'call
"What lady ?" I inquired.
"Well, I think, it was the lady in a crape i
vail who came about a month ago on busi
ness, and was so excited when she left. In
fact I'm pretty certain it was the same."
I suddenly sat down In my office-chair,
feeling very faint.
"What did she say?" I asked, wiping
the starting moisture from my fore
"Only that she'd call again. I didn't see
her till I looked up, and there she was
standing inside the glass door. She was
was very pale and quiet," continued Gibbs,
reflectively, as if mentally contrasting
Lliio -auto wlbli Clio vialtor'o fonnor "cvull-o
ment." "She looked and moved like a.
"Don't bo a fool, Gibbs," I exclaimed with
sudden and unwonted irritation. "There
are not such things as ghosts."
"I don't know, he answred, with a
doubtful shake of his frizzly red head.
"I've heard of strange things happening
now tmd then. My grandmother?"
"Your grandmother be?hanged!" I mut
tered under my breath, as I slammed
dc wn the lid of my desk, as if by accident,
but violently enough to make Gibbs start
and forget his ghostly reminiscences. And
all that day I was so nervous and excited
with watching the office door, and listen
ing to the footsteps and voices of the peo
ple in the outer room, that I found it im
possible to properly attend to business.
That evening, after tea, to quiet my ex
cited nerves, I walked with Deborah in
I the garden, up and down a bowery walk,
which was a sort of boundary line be
tween our part of the house and that
lately occupied by Mrs. Crowle. It was a !
warm, delicious summer ovening, and the
scent of roses and jasmine filled the air
with fragrance, while the cool white lilies
gleamed like silver in the moonlight. Gen
eraUy I enjoy these things, but to-night I
had no thought for them. A horrible in
cubus seemed hanging over my life. Could
it be possible that ArabeUa Crowle's vin
dictive threat was being fulfllled, and
th .t the rest of my life was doomed to be
haunted by her gh03t, or spirit, or appar
ition, or what ever it might be, which
now seemed dogging my daily steps? But
ghosts! How weak and foolish I was be
coming! Of course I knew that, though I
could not explain to myself the mysterious
visits which had lately occurred, there
could be no such things as ghosts. And
with this thought I, with a contemptuous
smile, lifted my eyes from tho ground
and saw looking over a rose-lodge, ex
actly facing me?the ghost of Arabella
It was only a momentary glimpse, for
the next instant the apparition had van
ished; but in that moment I saw it plainly
in the moonlight. There were the large
black eyes fixed upon me, the white, mar
ble-like complexion, the well-formed
features, the tall, slender figure, all in
white, only half of which I had seen above
the hedge. It was either Arabelle Crowle,
whom I had seen dead and buried, or else
Dorathy*s exclamation aroused me.
"What was that? T thought I saw
something white just there! Did you?"
"Yes; I?I saw the ghost of Arabella
"Good gracious, Oliver! What do you
And then I told her all that I had hither
to withheld from her knowledge. She
said nothing, but took my arm, and all in
a flutter of agitation hurried back to the
house, and, on entering, locked and
barred the door after us. As if anything
could hereafter keep out Arabella Crowle's
I was sitting In my room, unwilling to
retire, glancing about and starting at
every slight sound, when I heard my sis
j ter's vo^ee from the top of the stairs.
"Oliver! I don't believe' a word of it!
[ That is, 1 don't believe its a ghost!* I'll
find out to-morrow."
She met me the next evening with a
countenance of portentous solemnity,
seatiiiK herself opposite me iu the parlor,
while Bridget arranged, with more than
usual elaborateness, the tea-table in the
! next room.
j "Oliver," she commenced, "I 've seen
that ghost again."
"Where?" I inquired, staring around.
She patted me lightly and soothingly on
\ "Over in the nest house?Mrs. Crowle's
"Have you been there?"
"Yes. I resolved to go over and Inquire
ofoldAilsa. She showed me into Mrs.
Crowle's parlor, and there, standing all
white, right under Arabella Crowle's por
trait on *he wall I saw a ghost!"
"What did you do??wh-what did it do?"
My sister stroked her chin delicately
with her forefinger.
"I introduced myself, and said I under
stood she wished to see my brother on
business. To which she assented, and in
formed me that she was Isabella Crowle."
"You mean Arabella."
"I mean Isabella?Miss Isabella Crowle,
twin sister of Mrs. Arabella Crowle, who
married her cousin, Richard Crowle, and
died in this house-six weeks ago," said my
sister, with great emphasis and delibera
I drew a long breath of "surprise" and
relief, though as yet but half realizing the
"She wants to see you about the house,"
continued Deborah, in her most matter-of
fact tone and manner. "She wishes us to
purchase it. She is her sister's heiress,
though I have an idea that Arabella Crowle
was no kinder to her than to most'other
people. The lady seems a very nice
and sensible woman, and I somehow feel
interested in her, poor thing! She's, been
supporting herself by teachldg in a jjpung
ladies' seminary, to which she proposes re
turning after vacation."
"But?how did she get into the house
"I had gone out, and Bridget forgot to
lock tho hali-door. Miss Cowlc rung twice,
and feeling faint with standing in the sun,
stepped inside. And us to her leaving, she
would have to do that after waiting a
half-hour and no one appearing. Bridget
isn't accustomed to visitors, and will re
quire some teaching. She is going tq.:take
tea with us this evening," added Dorothy,
with a brisk glance toward the table in the
"Take tea with ns? Bridget?"
"Miss Crowle of course. I asked her in
a friendly, informal 'manner?for she.
seemed so lonesome, and we are under the ;
same roof, you know, and had paid her no*'
attention. She's much better looking
than her sister, though so wonderfully
like her. Expression makes all the differ
ence, you know. I think you will like
I did like her. I liked her so well that I
purchased the house which she was so
desirous to sell; and, after that, my liking
increased so much that 'I installed her I
therein as its mistress. Neither Deborah j
nor I have ever regretted the step;*but we
naver allude to either Arabella Crowle or
her ghost, nor is my wife to this day

The Cockles of the Heart.
Mr. Thomas S. Clarko sends us a plausi
ble explanation of the expression "warm
ing the cockles of tho heart" Ho says
that in the counties of Kent and Essex,
England, the phrase is commonly used and
is invariably applied to the pleasures of
eating aud drinking. When he was a
schoolboy Mr. Clarke heard it explained
that tho right and left auricles of the heart
were supposed to resemble in appearance
the cockle or shellfish found in that part
of the kingdom; from this luncied resem
blance arose the phrase "cockles of tho
heart," meaning the two shell-like divis
ions, or auricles, of the heart "So," say3
Mr. Clarke, "upon taking a drink or upon
feasting on highly spiced viands, the
cockles of the heart received the first pleas
urable impression, and so it was that the
whole heart was speedly set aglow."?
