"Nothing," said I. f'Didyou hoar a voice d*
"Yours," said Bun, "yelling woke mo up;

. "Bun," said I, "wait till I light a lamp; I

So I agaiu lit a lamp, but we searched in

"A bouse," said B. He had lived in the
neighborhood a loug while, and I not long.
"Uno little house, beside two oak' trees
and a fence. Au old man lives there?a rich
man, and a bit' of a miser, they say. His
grand daughter keeps house for him.
"Beu, that follow may have moaut harm to
them. 1 may be wanted at the cross roads."
"Brother," said Ben, "goto sleep, n You
had a nightmare/' nnd Ben plunged in be
tween tho blankets, and was suoring again.
I also, iu ten minutes, slept ns soundly as
before, but the awakening soon came again.
I opened my eyes, to boo a girl standing at
the foot of my bed. A girl iu whites robes,
with golden hair all about her shoulders, who
wrung her bands and cried: "Oh, wake up,
you uro wanted at the cross roads."
This time I starte I out of bed, bathed in a
cold pcrsporatiou. I trembled like a leaf. 1
had no doubt that I bad received supernatural
"Beu," I cried, "Ben, for the third time I
have becu told that I am wanted at the cross
roads, and I am going."
And I began to dress myself as speedily as
possible, listening the while to the storm rhg
iug wilder uud wilder than at auy other period
pi nee its commencement. '
Ben remonstrated with mo in vain. At last
he also began to-huddle on his clothes.
"If you have gone mad, I must go with you

Iu ten minutes we were splashing, through
tho mud and rain ulong tho road. It was
perfectly dark; uow and then a blaziug red
star iu the distance told us that a lamp was
beaming through the ruiu in some cottage
window, but otherwise we would-' uot 'liave
been conscious of,our proximity to any habita

as can be imagined.
Tho house, whioh abutted on tho very angle
of tho roads, called in familiar parlance the
Cross Road, was tho only one for some dis

such a night we were uotlikely to meet many
All was quiet ns the grave. We stood quito
still. In a moment, B. broke out in one of ]
his wildest laughs.
"Well," he said, "how now?"?Will you go
homo now and have another nightmare V
But hardly had tho words escaped his lip.",
when a shriek broke on the air aud a woman's
voice, plainly coming from tho interior of the
cottage, cried: "Holp! help! help!"
"Ben," said I, "we are wanted at the cross
roads," and then understanding each other,
without more words we made our way to the
window, through which a light shone. A mus
lin curtain druped the panes, but through it
we saw an awful sight.
An old mau lay on tho floor, aud over him
bent a ruininn, clutching his throat, aud hold
, as
were wanted at the cross roads."
The old man was not u tnisor, buf ho had
saved some few thousand dollars lor his old
age, aqd living ui?rc phutfldysthen ho need have
done, jiad given riso to the rumor, und so
brougnc^tho burglars to the cross roods in the
hope of booty.
The girl, u beautiful creature of seventeen,

Pretty Barbara Fcrros' would' not ? lttarry..
Her mother was in consternation.
'?Why are you so stubborn, Barbara?"
she asked, "you have plenty of lovers, 1
know." .
"Hut they do not suit mo," said Barbara,
cooly. tying back her curls before the mirror.
"Why not?" ' ' ..'
"I want, when I marry, a wan who is brave,
equal to auy emergency. If I give up my
liberty, I want to. bo taken caro of." .y
i * M TI J ^ i l ?'
"Silly child! what is the'matter with big
Barucy, the blacksmith ?
"He. is big, but I never learnod that ho .was
brave." 1
"And you never heard that ho was not.
What is tho matter with Earnest, the gun
smith ?"
?'lie's as placid as goat's milk."
"That is no sign that he is a coward. There,
is little Fritz, tho tanucr : he is quarrelsome
enough for you, surely ?"
"lie is no biggor than a bantam cock. : It
is little he could do if the house was set upon
by robbers."
"It's not always strength that, wins a , fight
my girl. It takes brains as well as brayrn.?
Come, now, Barbara, give these youug fellows
a fair trial." / !
Barbara turned her face before the mirror,
letting down one raven tress and looping up
"I will, mother," said she at last.
That evening, Earnest, thoguusuiith kuock
cd early at the'door.
? "You scut for me Barbara?" he said going
to the girl, who stood upon tho hearth, coquet-,
tishly warming oue pretty foot and then the
other. . ?? . !?
"Yes, Earnest," she replied. "I've been
thiuking of what you said tho other night
"Well Barbara.",,, 4 iir.
Earnest spoke quietly, but his dark blue
eyes flashed, and he looked at her iutcntjy. f'
*4I want to test you."
."iiow?" , : 7
'?I want to see if you dare do a very disa
greeable thing,"
"What is it!"
"There is an old coffin up stairs. It smells
of mold. They say Rcdmoud, the murderer,
was buried in it; but the devil camo for his
body aud left the coffin empty at the end of a
week; and it was finally taken from tho tomb,
It is up stairs itftlie-ro'oin uij'^gfaWsiFeJ dic<l
and they say grandsirc docs pot i rest* cacy
iu his grave for sMno reason, though that 1
know nothing .about. ,P>aro you make that
coffin your bud to-night?" ' *
Earnest laughed.'
"Is that all ? T will that, and sleep sound
ly. Why, pretty one, did you think I' bad
weak nerves?"
"Your nerves will have good proof if you
undertake it. Ilemember, no ono sleeps iu
that wing of the house."
"I shall sleep tho souudor. I will send a
lad U>(Showyou the ehauibur. r ..If you stay un
til morning," said imperious Miss Barbara,'
with a nod of her pretty head, "I will "marry
! "You vow it?" . r
Earnest turned straightway and followed
the lad in waiting through dim rooms and
passages, up eehoingstuirs, along uarrow, damp
W*ays, whore ruts scatter beforo them, to a low
chamber. The boy looked pule und scared,
artd evidently wanted to hurry away; but
Earnest made him wait until ho took a survey
of the room by the aid of his lamp. It
was very large aud full of recesses, with high
windows in them,, which were burred across.
He remembered that old Grandsirc Ferres had
been insane lur several yours before his death,
so that this precaution had heed necessary fur
the safety ol himself und others. Iu the cen
tre bf the robin Btodd n coffin; beside it was
placed a chair. Tlio room was otherwise per
fectly empty.
Earnest stretched himself in the coffin.
"Be kind enough to tell Miss Barbara that
it's a very good tit." be said.
' liMic boy went out and Bhut the door, leav
ing tho young gunsmith alone iu the dark.
Meanwhile,'Barbara was talking with the
big blacksmith in the keeping-room.
"Barney," said she, milling hor hands away
from his grasp when ho would have kissed
her, "I've a test to put to you beforo I give
you any answer. There is a corpse lying iu
the untonanted wing of the house. If you
dare sit with it there all night, aud let
nothing drive you from your post, you will not
ask uiO'to marry you again iu vain."
"You will give mo a light aud a bottle of
wino, aud a book to road ?"

He got up and walked about, but something ]
made a slight noisu, ..as if.80iu,ebfidy was ;bo'-'
hind him, aud he put his chair with its buck
against the wall, and sat down again.. JIo
had been hard at work all day, and at last^ in
spite of everything, he grew sleepy.. Finally
he nodded aud snored.
Suddenly it seemed as if Somebody' had
touched him. He awoke with ia atdrt, and'

room stood a white figure .ebao<*j <J?<*. | oi

.The figure held up its right arm and slowly

the corner. 1r ''
''The d-^1 take you!" cried Burncy, in his"
extremity, itidi ."- ' '<?! ' 1
Involuntarily ho stopped! back j still the
.figure advanced, coining nearer and nearer,
and extending, both anus, as if to take him in
a ghastly embrace. Tho hair.,sta/ted,up on
Barney's head; he grew desperate, and,just as
the gleaming amis would have 'touched him.
he fell upon tho ghost like a wnirjwjud,
tearing off the sheet, thumping, pounding,
beating and kicking, more 'and"more enraged
at the* resistance he met; which told him the
truth.' ?v' ?? ** ? '??; V:
As tho reader k?ows,' he was big,' pud
Fritz was little; and while ho was pu^mmoling
the little tanner u n in ere i fully, und Frjlz was
trying in vain to get a lunge at Barney's
stomach, to take the wind out ui him, both
plunging and kicking like horses, they were
petrified hy hearing a voice cry :
'?Take one of your size, Big Barney !"
Looking around they saw the corpse sitting
up in his coffin. This was too much. They
released each other and pprang for the door.
They never know how they got out; hut they
run home in hot haste, punting.like stags.
It was Barbara herself who came and opened
the dc ir npon Fat tiest the. next morning.
