However, I have plucked up courage, and now shall proceed to tell the tale: The 4th. of April fell mi a Fri day, and the mtrii i tier of that day whs truly spring-like, with a brisk southea-t. wind breezing: along-, to-sing th enfv branches and driving thr heavy clouds scurrying along, so tli'it 1 1 miii could only p-rp through at intervals.

Instinctively, and partial ly aft aid, they stood still and look ed in the direction whence the npise came. Almost at the moment, they saw a tall, slender woman, with some thing white in her left arm, uoming down the old road. She was walk ing fast, almost running, with a swift, gliding motion that got over the ground like one walking for a wager. She had her side face to the girls and they could not dis tinguish her features, though they could see that she wore a grey dress of some lustrous material, very new, very stiff, as if starch ed, without rent or tear. The dres was in one entire piece, that is, there was not a separate wa'st and !kirt. The sleeves were long and there was something whi'e at the ends, as well as around the neck, like cliffs nr.d collar Behind then wan a glimpse of Himetbii.g red. likp ribbon. TIip woman was birr headed. In Iter left arm she car ried a white budir, which the girls saw to be a- baby probably about six mouths old. The baby had on a white, embroidered petti coat and its head va. bare. When opposite that, wide, trian gular space, Ihr woman iwerved aside, entered the .-puce, and put the Imby down on its fet-t It stood up, clutcliitif.' at the woman's gown, and hi nfu.-t have been morr. than mx mouths old, though small for it.- age. In doing this the wo man turned hel fau- towards thr gitl.-, and they saw her plainly, stiuiug and taking in everything their terrified little wits could dis cern She irrmed about eighteen year- old, ull and slim.

She thru.-t out her right arm at the girls, with the palm open and, the lingers wide open, then stooped down, caught upon the child, clutch ed it uline to her breast, and wrtit across the new road down the old one. She walked as swiftly as a girl could run, yet did not seem to run, nor did she appear at all tired. Nor did he once turn her head to look back or to either side, but iiicitntaiued the same straight gaze that had first caught the attention of the little girls and terrified them. As she crossed the road, th girls noticed that she was bare footed, and her feet, were extreme ly red, one girl thonght they were bleeding. The .feet seemed mall. The woman held her dress up slightly. The little girls heard no sound of foot-falls, but could hear the rustling noise, as if of a dress stiflly-starched, made by the apparttiou. 'I'he little girls were very much terrified, and the Midden flight of the apparition so augmented their tenor that they fled, in La Gtulla, crying and fobbing Their appear ance at school in llil- state excited a great deal of attention. They were e.o-ely qius'ioued anil detail ed the above facts At noon they were afraid to go home almir so they were accompanied b quite a crowd of men and women. Wh-n near tbe "P'd where they saw the apparition, 'twas a hard matter to get them to cross. On reaching home, one of the girls, Anrelta, became so ill she had to be put to bd, w here she staid several days. The others were so -cared, that they didn't uo to school ( !) for several days. The ground of the new wad, where the apparition crossed, was hard, hut there w.is du.-t enough to hrtv taken the trace of uuyotie crosMiig. Though some ot the Lkeene.-t 'huelleros" looked for a' trail up and down the old roiid for a mile or s, nmi txutuiued every inch of the crossing, not a sign of a track was found. I he woman, I'mimjIih Alauis, whom the little gii Is saluted, had none d a wointu cio.-siug the road j-i.-l' ilieiul ot ihem, and limber on had m-imi a woman sentedlike her, on the ground. .Iit.-i then, Don St I vert.
