Tho lato Creed Hnyuioud, chief coun?
sel of tho Southern Pacific, could hard
ly bo called a dabbler in tho occult or :i
believer in things supernatural, and yet,
as his intimnto friends will rmneniber.
ho did beliovo implicitly that ho had
seen one ghost*
Tho story?for there was a romance,
and a tragio one, connected with this
ghost?was not one that tho lawyoi
cared to tell, except to thoeo who en?
joyed his personal confidence. He did
not like to bo charged with superstition:!
fancies, nor did ho appreciate attempts
to ridicule him out of his faith in th<
evidence of his own keen eyas. To his
death ho maintained firmly that it had
been his fortuuo to meet faco to face j
tlio spirit of one who hud passed from j
It was early in the lift lea when Hay- i
mond, then a stranger in California,
bocauio on express rider. Ho used to
make regular trips into tho mountains
visiting tho camps at stated intervals,
carrying in his big saddlebags letters,
papers aud such sinall articles oh could
bo transported iu this way.
On ono of his first trips away up ill
tho Sierra ho camo to an almost deserted
camp, where a rich strike had been
made aud tho pocket quickly oxhansted.
Only one family had remained?that of
a man named Roddon. Ina small, com?
fortable house close against tho wall of
rock which rose bohiud tho camp a
light was burning as Hay mond rode !
into tho deserted place. A knock at the
door brought forth tho occupant. Ti
Hayniond's request for lodgings tin
man growled a surly response and r? -
luctantly let him in.
The express rider was surprised to
silting beside the little table, on wlii,ili !
st???,! the lamp, a young and pretty
woman. lie was surprised to reooglli'/< j
in her a Bchoobnato whom ho had sup- j
posed to be still safe in her eastern ,
home. After their greetings had be< n j
said Haymond explained to tho ungra- j
cious husband how ho had known Mrs. j
Rodden back east. Kodden gr?nt? 1 1
some response, but Haymond and th> j
woman wore too busy asking and an?
swering questions to heotl his mann. !-.
The man seemed relieved by Haymond's
departure tho next day. He told tho ex?
press rider to call whenever ho was
passing over tho trail, and tho wonitu!
nrged him to come again and stop for 1
tho night, that they might talk a boo I
people and things at home.
It was more than a month bofore he
again came to tho deserted camp, and
this time, reaching it at an earlier hour,
ho found tho woman alone, her husband
having not yet returned from his work.
Haymond learned from her that sho had
married Rodden against the wishes oi
her family and had coino to the mines
with him without lotting her parents
know where sho had gone, Sho said
little about her life in tho mountains, 1
but that little showed that it had not
boon a happy oue. They had comet..;
tho camp with a number of others, but j
some quarrel had arisen between her j
husband and tho rest of the miners, so j
when they moved on ho had remained
behind, and by hard work was making j
fairly good pay in tho deserted diggings.
Sho dreaded thu loneliness of the place;
but, with n path nt sigh, said sho hop< d ,
before another winter her husband
might bo willing to move on to some |
camp where, they would have company.
Haymond made two trips more, call?
ing each tiino at tho cabin where his
schoolmate lived. When leaving the
second time, he told thoui that one trip
more would be all he could make before
the snow blocked the trail. Twoorthreo
tine s Haymond had suggested t,> Rod?
den that ho take his wife to somo settle
meat before winter shut them in, but
had received no answer. Ho did not feel
at liberty to say more, so with the prom?
ise to visit them on his return in a fow
weeks he mounted his horse and rode
down tho narrow trail.
.V fow stops took him out of sight of
tho cabin. lie beard a faint call, and
looking back saw .Mrs. Rodden running
down tho trail after him. She waved
her hand for him to return, and ho rode
back. l
"Will you do an errand for inowhijo j
you aro in tho city"-" he said.
Of coarse ho consented, and sho gave
him her commission, and with a few
parting words she ran up tho trail,
while, bo turned his horse again to dc
scond. IIo looked back after his friend,
and, to his surprise, saw Hodden rise
from behind a bush near tho trail. He
thought tho man had been hidden,
watching his wife, but a reflection mado
tho idea seem absurd?probably it was
a mere coincidence. Even if Kodden
had heard every word of the conversa?
tion it could only havo spoiled Mrs.
Roddcn's little plot, which was nothing
! worse than u Christinassurpriso for her
I bnsband.
I Hayniond was detained a week longer
i than he had expected, and when he
I started for tho mountains again his
j friends told him he wonld never get
i through, but ho persisted, and finally,
; after a long battle, with the snowdrift: .
ho reached the last camp on his route,
'. having lost a week on the way.
I It was almost night and snow and
wind woro in riotous possession of tlto
: mountains when ho found himself rid?
ing down tho trail a mile or two above
tho camp where ho was to pass the night
With the Roddens.
Dusk camo while ho was still moro
than a mile from the cabin. He pressed
on as fast as ho dared, whon suddenly
his horse stopped short with a snort ana
stood quivering. Hnymond could bos
nothing, und Boothing tho animal with
hand ami voico urged him oil There
was still light sufficient to sco around
olonrly enough to distinguish objects
uonr tho trail. Hnymond thought as lie
started again that ho saw something
move across tho trail a little way ahend.
The horse went slowly forward, but
with great reluctance, and when they
reached an opou spot whore tho light
was sufficient to show objects for sonn
distance ho again stopped, trembling,
and Haynioud for a moment could not
persuade him to start. At last tho horse
i started forward with a bound, and as
j he did so Uayinond saw Maggio Rod
j den en tho trail, lu-r hair hanging
] around horpalo face, her hands stretched
pleadingly toward him and an expres?
sion of mute agony upon her white face.
Reining up as quickly as possible,
j Hnymond tu mod to speak to her, but
j she had vanished. Ho rodo back and
called her name, but thoro was no an?
swer. Ho dismounted and looked for
tracks at tho spot where sho must have
loft tho trail, but fouud none.
Puzzled and nunoyed, ho nimmted
and rode as rapidly as possible to tho
Rodden cabin.
Hurriedly dismounting, Haynioud
called Rodden out mid asked if he knew
that Iiis wife was wandering alone
through the snow away up tho moun?
tain trail. Rodden was too much tin
nerved for a moment to reply. Then
he managed to say that tho express rid?
er must have dreamed ho saw her, as
she had gone homo, gone back east,
more than a mouth before. Haynioud
stuck to his story, but at last ho was
obligod to conclude that his imagina?
tion hail played him a trick. He
couldn't help wondering, though, what
had frightened the horse.
There was nothing to bo done or said,
for if Mrs. lUnblen had gone homo it
mouth boforli certainly she could not
have boon roaming around in tho snow,
and as there was no other woman wit hit,
miles cif the camp ho must have been
mistaken. Rodden, though not at all j
hospitable in manner, got supper and
allowed ihn express rider to stop fur the
After supper Hnymond opened his !
saddlebags, saying:
"Well, as Maggio is not hero to take >
her package, and as it was intended for
yon. anyway, 1 suppose I'd better give
it to you, and yon can write her that
her Christmas present got here a litt!
ahead of time."
Ho tossed tho package across to tin
man. who stared at ir as if petrified,
He stretched out his hand, slowly and
opened it with shaking lingers. The I
packngo contained a pair of thick, warm
gloves, nothing more.
"When did Maggio send for those?"
he asked.
"The last time I was lu re. You ennu
near not getting them at all, for she (
had no chance to tell mo to buy them
while I was here and had t<> run aftoi
nie tu give tho order. "
"Was that all she ran after you for':"
"That was all."
Rodden settled book into his chair,
with a groan, and hid his face in his
Haymond sat silent for awhile, then,
finding that the man did not intend tr
speak, ho concluded that the best tiling
ho could do was to go to bed. Iii' was
soon sleeping and knew nothing inon I
until the morning light, shining through I
tin) n?if;iiytn.iiu>d window, awoke Iii!*, !
Ho dressed hurriedly and went orSi
into the room where ho had left his host.
It was silent and deserted. A glanci
into the sii!?- room showed that the bed
was unoccupied, and Haymond went
out to look after his horse as well us t?.
see if ho could sen any signs of his host
Tho horse lutd boon stabled in ndeserti
cabin, and Haymond pushod open tin
door nnd then sprang hack into tin
open air. .Swinging by a halter from th
rafters was Rodden's dead body.
Hnymond cut tho body down and laid
it carefully in the bunk. Ho could d
nothing for it, as the snow covered the
frozen earth, so that one man could nut
hope to dig a grave. Hastily saddling
his horse, ho drove away, after search?
ing tho cabin in the faint hope that 1?
might find somo note of explanation,
but in vain. Not a lino of writing, now
or old, could bo found.
Haynioud stopped at the first settle?
ment and gave notice of tho suicide at
tho deserted camp, hut tho snow was
again falling, and no party could reach
! the place for weeks, if beforo siii ing.
When ho reached the city, ho wroto n
, letter to his parents asking them I
I break the sad news to the widowed
j Mrs. Hodden. Weeks passed before hi
received any answer, and then ho was
i astounded to learn that Maggie had
novor returned hoini?in fact, had
never even written since she left for
By this time spring had como, and he
was about to make his fust trip to the
mountain. Ho reached the town where
j ho had given m tico of the suicide in
time to h arn what had been discovered
at tho lonely cabin.
A thorough search had been made,
bnt nothing had been found to explain
the suicide. Hidden away in one of the
distant cabins they found Mrs. Rod
den's clothing, her ornaments, even her
workbaskct, and, in fact, so far ns they
could judge, every article that had be?
longed to her.
riaymond told the men of the events
of that last night and his interpretation
of them, but ho said nothing of hi>
meeting With the wronged woman in
the storm.
1 They nrgncd that Rodden, jealous be
oanso his wife had gone down the trail
I after Haymond, in his anger had killed
! her. Filled with remorse when ho
I learned how causeless the deed had been,
j ho decided to dio in tho sumo way,
i if the world knew of his crime.
That was Creed Hnymond's one gho l
story. Years passed before he could
speak at all of that meeting in storm
and darkness, but till the day of his
death he believed that the spirit of Hin?
dered Mrs. Roddi u had appeared to him
on the trail.?St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
