needed to stir up a more Insistent de

news that Senator Root has been on

amendment to the McCall bill, framed
to postpone the day of cheaper wood

Of course, the first effect of Mr.
Roofs amendment, if It had been ap
proved by the committee, would have
been to throw the whole reciprocity
program Into confusion. Its ultimate
effect, if adopted by both houses, as

There has never been ana never wiu
be again any such life as existed on
the southern plantation up to the pe
riod when the system of slavery ceas
ed to exist. In many respects It was
an ideal life. Its pleasanter features
were more pronounced in Virginia than
in any other state. It having been
the first of the colonies and planted
by the cavaliers of England. Two
hundred years later tbelr descendants
formed a unique people. The planta

planter stood In the place of the pa

next grade, the negro bouse servants

The children of the planter were ed

what lofty Ideas of their English an
cestors who lost their cause at Naseby
some two centuries before. The young
men lived an out of door life and
mostly in the saddle. The young wo
men's duties consisted largely in visit
ing the negroes on the plantation and
ministering to their wants. There
was no actual work done except by the
negroes, and they were not overwork
ed. The plantation supported every
one on it and was administered usual

The plantation on which the incidents
narrated in this story occurred is now
divided Into thirty parts. Even the
beautiful grounds in which tbe manor
house stood and still stands, slowly
rotting away, are covered with potato
vines, and the immense trees that
shaded the roof from the hot southern
sun have been cnt down for firewood.
One afternoon it was In 18621 car
ried from a battlefield to this manor
house a brother officer who had been
wounded. It was then as it always had
been, but was not to be In future.
Two soldiers carried the wounded man
on a stretcher through an avenne of
trees to the front veranda and set
down the stretcher, while I stalked in
side. A quadroon house servant re
ceived me. I asked for tbe owner of

Tbe voice came from a person on the
second story and seemed to roll melo
diously down tbe great winding stair
case. When I first heard the opening
strains of "Annie Laurie" I fell In love
with the song, and when I heard these
words. "What Is It. Clarice?" I fell in
love with the nnseen voice.
"I have brought a young officer, 1
said, "from the fight going on over the
river. He Is badly wounded. Can yon
not find it In your heart to take him
In? He would die if left on the field."
As I spoka girl of twenty, perhaps,
came down the staircase. Alas! she
was the last of a long line of refined
dames who had passed up and down
that same staircase, bnilt in England a
hundred and fifty years before. Her
complexion was that olive white mixed i

with vermilion which was often to th.
found among these highborn women
of the south. She cast a quick glance
at the limp form, the pale face lying
on the stretcher, and her features were
transfigured to express profound pity.
"This way," she said and. turning,
opened a door that led to a chamber
on the ground floor. We followed. I
ordered the men to set down the
stretcher, and one of them assisted me
to lift the wounded man on to the bed
Then, telling the Invalid that I would
be back as soon as possible. I left him.
We were members of the same staff,
and I went at once to our general and
reported what I had done. He directed
me to find a surgeon If possible and
take him with me tp Klrkwood my
wounded comrade and remain with
him until he was out of danger or
dead. I reminded the general that It
would not do to ask a surgeon to go to
one from so many who needed him.
md he sId he would send me one as
soon as he could be spared.
It was a week before we could
form any opinion as to Kirkwood's
recovery. Dnrins that time my gen
eral's headquarters were not far from
the Rutledge manor house where Klrk
wood lay. and I was with the Invalid
a good deal of the time. My presence
there was really unnecessary, for the
women of the family the men were
all in the Confederate army could not
have taken better care of a son or a
brother. Lillian Rutledge. who had
thrilled me with her voice before I had
even seen her and afterward by her
personnel, was unconsciously leading
me to fraudulently let the general be
lieve that Klrkwood needed me. I
fear I wished my friend might He
there hanging between life and death
till the war was oter. but unfortu-'
nately for me the surgeon at last said
he could be moved, and I was obliged
to move with him.
While be was there a medical direc
tor looked at the bouse with a view to
taking it for a hospital. Miss Rut
ledge showed him through the rooms
I accompanying them. One room Miss
Rutledge at first declined to open and
on being pressed to do so told tbe
medical officer that it could not be
used. It required a deal of prodding to
induce ber to tell why. The reason
finally drswn from her wns thet the
room was haunted and any sick man I
put in It would be frightened to death.
The officer decided against using tbe
bouse for tbe purpose, and I bad
caught the Infection of curiosity. As
soon as be had gone I began to ques
tion Miss Rutledge about the haunted
room. She told me that daring tbe
early part of the eighteenth century
one of ber ancestors had been murder
ed there. He bad married the daughter
of a neighboring planter. She loved
and was Jved by another. This lover
came to ue bouse, and during an alter
cation between hlai and tbe husband
in this room tbe Utter bad been stab
bed there. Since then every one who
had tried to sle - In the chamber bad
been drtyen out..by the appearance of
tbe murdered man.
Tbe most natural thing In the world
for a lover Is to try to make a hero
of himself. Virginia was full of mili
tary heroes, and as such' I was merely
one of thousands. I resolved to do
what 1 could to show my courage by
sleeping In the haunted room. Miss
Rutledge begged me not to try It since
the .last person who did was thrown
Into a fever which, being followed by
other symptoms, finally carried him off.
I was resolute, because In the first
place 1 believed haunted chambers
to be a myth, and la tbe second

I pledged Miss Rutledge to say noth
ing about my intention to sleep In the
haunted chamber, hoping In this way
j to bead off any one who might be dis
posed to play ghost. She prepared the
room herself for my occupancy, I keep
ing watch that no one should see her
doing so. I waited till a late hour be
fore going to bed. when not a person
besides myself and Miss Rutledge. ex
cept in the Invalid's chamber, was
stirring. Then I went to the room I
had occupied whenever I bad remain
ed for the night and. removing my
boots, stole In the dark to tbe haunted
That my presence there might not be
betrayed I took off my clothes In the
dark. Feeling sure that the parts of
ghosts are always played by persons in
the flesh and that no one on this side
of the dead line knew that the room
was occupied, I went to sleep within a
I awoke with a start. At the other
end of the room I saw a glimmering
such as appears in the east at the first
faint dawn. I watched It and soon
saw that It was Increasing, both
spreading and growing In intensity.
It grew till that end of the chamber
was illuminated, or. rather, it seemed
that there was no end to the chamber,
but a misty. 111 defined space. Then I
i saw in this space the bed In which I
lay and asleep In it a figure. A door
opened, and a man dressed In the cos
tume in vogue at the end of tbe eight
eenth century stole stealthily toward
the bed. Reaching it, quick as a flash
be buried a knife In the sleeper's bos
om. Then all was dark again.
I felt all the horror one experiences
in seeing a murder In cold blood. For
more than a year I had seen men
killed continually, sometimes thoussnds
at a time, but that was under the ex
hilaration of battle. The vision, or
whatever It was. left me all of a trem
ble. There being no further use for
concealment, I lighted a candle that
stood on a small table beside my bed.
I would have given half my fortune
I was rich to leave that bedroom, but
j my love for Lillian Rutledge was
greater than my fear. I bad come
there to show ber my pluck, and I did
not propose to show tbe white feath
er. Yet I would have Infinitely pre
ferred to lead a forlorn hope against a
battery of a hundred guns.
I had not long to wait for dawn, and

looked at me Inquiringly. I confessed
that I had seen a vision of murder.
