I'nlcBR my eyes He. I have seen a ghost. I was In the gar den last night and distinctly saw n white ligiirn move along the battle ments of the western towers and dis appear. It was the ttgure of a wom an, cud. siranw though It may np li.ir. It k tie d somehow familiar to me. February 2f!. This morning I asked Mrs. Cross for an old manuscript copy of tbo history of ShagKhaft castle, as I fancied that I hnd beard something iboiii a secret room in the western wing W hat a nervous woman she Is! I had Mciircely got the words out before ilio lainied. There Is something all about this which I cannot understand. When hlie (nine to, she declared sol emnly I hat she had never heard of such a book. This most he false, fur I have often been told aUml it; any how, I wiih only the more determined to thoroughly explore the western wing, so I commenced at once. On the topmost story, starting from the center tower and going to the right, I counted 111 rooms, all large, empty, and In a neglected slate. When I reached tho furthermost I turned round with u at art to Hud Mrs. Cross juat be hind me. "Vuii have found the book?" she gasped. "You know about the secret chamber!" "Precisely!" I answered. "Aud It will go III with lta tenant." Then she fell on her knees before me. "For the love of Ood, don't hurt her, Sir neglnuld," alio moaned. "Don't give her up; so young as she Is, and so beautiful, and so Innocent like. She'd never a hurt a hair of old Roger Martin's head If he hadn't offered her un Insult worse than death; and she ne'er meant to kill him. lie tried to tuko the gun from her, and It went off. What could I do when she came to me for help but hldo her?" "Stand up, woman, and tell me whom you buve been hiding," I cried. "She who killed old Roger Martin, the wickedest man In all the country side. Her father left her to his care. Little be could 'a knowed what sort of a man he was; and she came from India here last " She stopped smut. My eyes follow ed hers, and standing In an aperture of the wall at the other end of the room, her arms stretched out ap peallngly to me, was tho figure of a young girl. I knew her at once. My eyea remained fixed upon her fas cinated. "Oh, It la you," she cried, Joyfully: "you who saved me from drowning In the Ohooly river I Tom will not give me up? You will let me stay here? Before Ood, I swear to yon that I never meant to hurt him.", February 27. Moat of the day I hare spent with Maud Moray, and I hart heard her story. Ilur father had died suddenly, and tiad left her to the guardianship of an old Northum brian squire, a distant relative. She had ronie ovor to Kntclnnd, unci had found that her new home was a tum ble down farmhouse on n wild moor, and that Iter Kiiardbin was a man of evil i-epulf a drunkard, and worse. She wan only two mlbs away from Shacshnft raitle, and she had often visited It, and. by lier wondurlne prulae of its grandeur and Biitinulty. hud Hint won .Mrs. Cross' heurt. Then had come a terrible nUht, when, Hushed with drink, old Martin Uox-r had been sent to his doom by a des perate girl, i pass over her hasty, re i luctant ilescrlpllou of that awf. l scene. In her horror of whnt she hr.d Oh, It Is You!" She Cried Joyfully. done her first Instinct had been to fly, and she found her way by the pale light of the moon across the bleak moor to ShagBhaft cnstle. What could Mrs. Cross do but promise to try and bide her. There was a part of the cas tle which neither man nor woman for ninny miles round dare visit, for, from time Immemorial, it bad been stead fastly believed to he haunted by the ghost of a former lady of Hhagshaft. And so alio had unlocked the serrel chamber which none save she knew of. mid Maud Moray had taken up her iibode there. To Increase the awe with which Hun purl of tho castle was already looked upon by the rustles, she now and then walked upon the battlements at night clad in a white gown. March 4.
