A First-Class Ghost Story.
I was seated in a comfortable com
partment in a first class railway car
riage at London Bridge rail way station
on 24th December. The weather was
horribly cold, and the wind was very
high. I had uiy evening paper al
ready cut by ray side, aud my braj
i(i0.waa in my hand; bat they were
at . present both unheeded, for my
thoughts were far away down the line.
forty nules down, to ricttleton, where
I wag gin to spend my Christmas
holidays with my ancle, Arthur JJluoh-
er, a few cousins and Bessie. When
I say that my nne'e and cousios were
second and tnird inr my thouzfcta, I
need hard-y explain that -Desie was
my sweetheart rather an old -word but
I like to use it. I had won her after
a courtship of twelve mot tlis; and I
thought myself the happiest of young
feilows and the luckiest of uiaukuit1.
I will not attempt to describe my Bes
sie, fir that only can be done by pho-
togrnphy. bhe was very pretty, very
sensible, and beloved by every tody,
and adored by me. I had parted with
her in the autumn; although every
week brought me a kind, gentle l:tter
fiom her, we bad not met since saying
good-bye at the Barmouth station,
North Wales, when she went to stop
at Nettleton, and I returned to grim
old law in my chatrber, Newitin,
liincdn's inn. ILnv slowly the time
dragged on, to be sute! TLere never
could have been a windier or a more
cheerless October than in that year,
nor a duller, or darker November. I
could find no charm in the Ljndon
theatres, io spite" of the novelties pro
duced. The newspapers wercBtupid,
and the magazines barely readable. -My
tneuds too, somehow or other, became
wearisome. Johuson's puns fell flat:
Robinson's practical jokes lost their
charins; an J Smith and Jone's rartie-
bored me. I wauled Chrisrmas to
come as quickly (is possible, sud yet
Old Time would not get on any quicker
m spite of my frettins:. But at last
the djy arrived for my departure. I
had packed my portmanteau two days
before it was necessary. . I bad' studs
ied my route until I knew the stations
by heart, and I fouud myself at Loo
dou Bridge station a good half hour
before -the ..traiu was advertized to
start. Immediately 'my' train had
known this 5:55 for so many wei ks that
I looked upon it in the light of perso
nal property baekd into its position
I inaisted-oo. taking my seat, although
the guard assured me we-shouidn t be
