A BURGLAR'S GHOST. lie was a gbost, undoubtedly As soon vs I saw him, lying at full length under the drooping branches of a mountain ash, with its vividly green, pointed leave* look ing curiously into his mocking face, 1 know that ho was not a creature of solid parts. Why, as I stood, awe stricken, a few yards away, I could see the ground on which be was lying clear through him. He was absolutely transparent. He evi dently enjoyed my terror, and a sneering smile that rippled over bis whole form, from top to Imttom, proved that, in Ids ghostly way. he rejoiced in his uncanny appear once, and would not have been flesh and blood if ho could. The cold moonlight forced its way through tile hanging c luster* of leaves that depended from the branches of the moun tain ash, and seemed to *hed u congenial glow over the shadowy presence stretched on the greensward. The glow was chilly, but it suited the ghost. Your average ghost doe* not appreciate cheerfulness, either.ln the shape of light or heat, and though this particular ghost differed from his fellows in that he did nbt disdain the comfort of a recumbent position, it is rea sonable to suppose that ho preferred to have his uncertain outlines marked by the sod blue white hue of Luna's rays, instead of being shown up In the rosy glow of an early morning sun. 1 came upon him quite unexpectedly. I The evening was still young, but it; the 1 late September days darkness falls over the earth very suddenly, and a large mountain ash throws a heavy shadow. I do not know that I had any real reason to feel sur prised. The ash grew In the heart of a thicket some distance from the road, and If a ghost was to be found anywhere in the large, closely wooded grounds surrounding Colonel Hinton's tine old mansion, surely tliis was the place lie would naturally choose for his hauut. There was an ag gresslve silence—so deep as to seem to re sent even the faint rustling of the leaves of the mountain ash—preceding the spot. The bark of the trees was rent into fissures of quaint designs, and gaped at the in truder like months. Even the katydids and bullfrogs that occasionally burst into Voice cut their remarks short us if oppressed by the general quietude. I had often uoticed the mountain ash front afar, unci hud seen that its bright green leaves waved mournfully at times when I was not aware ef the presence of a breeze. I had wondered, in a careless way, what power it was that sent the heavy clusters sweeping to and fro as monoto nously mid persistently a* the pendulum of a Dutch clock. I may have even con jectured as to the existence of a super natural agency in the vicinity. But never for long. Whenever 1 hud occasion to pass through Colonel Hinton's park my mis sion was one altogether distinct from the dread influence of mysterious causes over grewsomo objects, and the weird results of freaks by unknown forces of the nether world. 1 went to keep a love tryst. Sweet Nellie Hinton and I had met in the regulation way at a party. Wo had been formally Introduced, had talked, had danced uml—hail met again. 1 do not know exactly how it came about, but one lovely August evening, when her face was very close to mine, a* we waltzed—one couple among pci-lui|is fifty—at a hop in a Chautauqua hotel, 1 told her that t o which one glance from her ever changing violet eyes was sufficient response, ami my love romance had commenced, n There was no reason why we should not have told her father at once. The colonel liked mo, and though I kuew he would not relish the idea of parting with Nellie, who was to him wife and daughter in one, I was sure he would not raise any objection to me on the score of worldly consideration». Our families were on excellent terms. But then it wo* very pleasant to meet Nellie secretly in the cool of the evening under the trees, with the lights of her house just visible through the foliage, and to imagine that all the world Were against us. Of course it was ridiculous, but 1 leave it to any young lovers if it was not natural. Love without persecution is but a tame affair after all, anil I verily believe that I should have been pleased to face opposition for Nellie's sake—always provided t hat I would heroically overcome it at last. We hod never found ourselves near the mountain ash before, There was some wild story afloat that the spot was haunted; that an ancestor of the colonel's had one night found a burglar in hik house, and being of a choleric disposition, had chased him into the grove and fell«! him dead with one blow of his list under the moun tain ash. There the dead man had lain all night, with bis white shirt glistening iu the dim light—for he had taken off his coat and vest on entering the house—and there his ghost was to be occasionally seen ever afterward, according to popular tradi tion. On this evening Nellie and 1 hml agreed to meet under tbe mountain ash. as tbe re sult of a laughing remark she had made as to the burglar's gbost. Neither of us believed In his existence, and we had re solved to meet him in his haunt and "lay" him forever. When 1 saw the long, shadowy Thing, I stopped short, while a wave of cold, that 1 knew came from the ghost, as if be had breathed icily in my direction, sent a shiver through me from head to foot. With an effort I recovered myself and moved reso lutely forward. "Pshaw!" I said aloud. "What a fancy!" "Fancyl" articulated a gurgling voice as tbe ghost indulged in another of those peculiar smiles that agitated him from one end to the other. "Fancy, am I ? Well, I like thall Ha! ha! bal" 1 must say that the ghost's laugh was a most unpleasant thing. Not that it was loud or harsh, but it gave one the impres zion that he laughed from a force of bttbit a contracted iu the flesh, and not because it I afforded biranny pleasure in his present tbe | immaterial state, *5 m. iu. C. ar tour of "i'aacy, am If" he repeated. 1 had by thin time reached that extrem ity of *ii|>ernatuml fear which reacts upon itself and income» brarery—or a very good imitation. So 1 answered boldly: "Yes, you are fancy of course. Do you mean to lie there and tell me that you are really the disembodied spirit of a man dead in the flesh ? I admit that my eyes tell me you are a ghost, but my common sense will not listen to such an absurd notion, and I say that when i proceed to investigate you as I intend to do at once, 1 shall find that you are, literally, mere moonshine." Again I stepped forward, and again the Thing stopped me. ••Hold!" There was a hissing in his voice as he issued his command, while a certain trembling in his legs, which lay straight and so close together that they looked like one, made me think he was going to get up. "Why should 1 hold?" I demanded in dignantly, for I was beginning to lose my temper. Reside» 1 expected Nellie every minute. "Because you cannot help yourself! Ifa! ha! hat Don't you know who I am? You cannot meet your Nellie tonight." I secretly resented his speaking so famil larly of my betrothed, but I bottled my wrath and simply said; "Why not?" "Because 1 will not let either of you pass mo. "Ridiculous!" I returned hotly. "You talk us if you controlled the traffic of this park. How do you mean to stop us?" "Very easily. I am the Ghost of Hun nlug Water, and my very nature gives me a power in spirit land that no one cun with stand. Don't you know that a ghost can not cross a running stream?" I saw that the specter hail thongi^A sly made a lapse in his logic, and it wa* with a ring at triumph in my voice that 1 said; "Ghosts seem to lie sometimes troubled with narrowminded views as well as mor tais. I have heard that beings of your kind are stopped in their perambulations and mischief by a running stream, and doubtless your being the Ghost of Run n)ug Water give« you a great deal of in flnence wi your sphere But you surely don't suppose that you can—after fulfilling your mission ou earth, us I presume you did—continue to interfere with people who are still struggling along iu this mutter of tact world ?" The ghost was about to reply when sud denly I saw a white, diaphanous dress glinting through the trees, and the next minute my Nellie was in full view. She smiled joyously us she caught sight of me, evidently not noticing the shape on the ground. Only for a second, however. With a low cry of terror, pain and de spair, she felt and succumbed to the icy atmosphere of the ghostly presence, as, stretching her arms supplicating!}- toward me, she fell prostrate by the side of the grinning ImmateriaUsm. 1 was so overcome by the peril of ray Nellie that I could not move at first. Then I recovered and sprung forward Just as the ghost stretched his dummy arms und ac tually drew her into his embrace. With a boutai 1 was at Ids side, while the long, wet leaves of the mountain ash flapped spitefully in my f;ice, as if they, too, were I taking part with the supernatural powers against me. "Ghost, mortal or devil) I care not what you arel" I gasped ns I tried to seize him by the throat, feeling ready to brave the hosts of hades itself for Nellie's sake. Thu mysterious, Icy feeling 1 have re ferred to before ran through my veins, as it my life blood luul congealed, as 1 tried to tear Nellie from his fearful clasp Then "I forgot all uliout this brook und I actu ally walked right into it," was Nellie's half laughing, half crying plaint, as ] raised her to her feet and led her toward the house to got rid of wet clothing. "Yes, dear," I replied, "but I must cer tainly see a physician, for my nerves are in a terrible condition. I have entirely toe much imagination. 1 am afraid I have been working and studying too much lately." "I am sure you have, dear. You look n> though you had just seen a ghost ," was Nellie's response, as she forgot her own uncomfortable plight «in her solicitude for me. I wonder how I came to mistake a little stream of water in the moonlight for the burglar's ghost?—George C. Jeuks in Pitts burg Bulletin. Two Utils.
