T1IK HOUSE IX THE MIRROR
It u lato one winter erenln. The enow
was fnllinK In thk-k, ft coming flakea, mak
ing a white curtain that was perpetually be

storm tu carrying on wild sport around the
houe, shaking the windows, beating against
the thick walls and muruiuriug in deep, hol
low tones in the rhiumeys. It was night

and such 1 relved to make It.
At the pert-! of which I am writing I wa
still a young until, and was practicing auc
oeasfully a a dx'tor In a town lu the went of
Kugiand tolerably lar?e, buny country

in what we meili,iil men call ''healthy tired"

laxily, now resting upou some of the most In
teresting caei among my patients, now flut
tering around a pretty picture of my only
sister and her lint baby, which her letter, re
ceived tun morning from India, had called
up; now straying into the stable to visit my
bay h"rw a new purchatie, which I flattered
myself did no small honor to my judgment in
bono Hesli. Gradually, however, all these
Subjects of pleasant rejection slipjieU into
luua, and n confusedly mixed together. I
fouud myself gazing, without feeliug the
least surprised, at an odd vision, which
showed me my sister mouuted on my pet bay
with the buby ui her arms, who, iustvad of a
baby's face, had tbe fare of my neighbor
and patiuut, Mr. Spicer, the grocer, and
soon after that I was sunk iuto a ieacuful

How long I l"pt I do not exactly know,
but I recollect I woke with a start, roused
by the clock on the chimney piece, which
bad a peculiar ringing, clear sound, strik

around with that vaguely uncomfortable
feeling which often follows sudden waking.

there it was jifet as it hail been before. Fix

trated upou it iu eageruos. it was still there.
I looked away, and fastened my look form

which hung over the suloboard. Ttieu my
eyes ere allowed to return to the glaat; but

which in its other parte redacted simply and
naturally tue coiumoupluce objects in the
r jiu. chuirx and tables uud w iiiduw curtain,
there apuoured a small but vh i.Uy distinct
picture of a hoiueand ganleti. It w as a very
pretty hou-e, 1U front cuvervd on one aide
with a groeu crec-r, which was spangled
with starry white blossoms, and on the other
with a fresco such as 1 had heard described
as existing on the Mulls of houses of Italy,
where 1 hail never beeu a fresco repreeeutr
inguuolt wuiuau sitting with a basket of
orungw at her feet.
There were four windows, two upstairs and
two dowu. exactly over each other; they
were all half wailed with green blinds, and I
could see that the top oue, on the right hand
side, was sightly open. Up tbe garUeu
there run a bruud gravel walk, with soft
fresh turf, gemmed with flower beds on
either si. in of It. The iuclosure was fouced
round w ith a rather high wo-iden )aiujg, and
iu one corner of it there stood a suiuumt
boue with a quiiintiy shapel roof, that had
aouietunig of a paguda about it. Over the
whole there was spread a soft, silvery light,
as though a bright, full moou waa shinuig
down upon it. A yellow gleam, as of a lamp
burning within, stole through tbe open win
dows and miugled with the white ray with
out, I laid my augers on my pulse. Was I going
fast iuto a raging fever My pulses were as
steady as they were when I rose that morn
ing after a night's sound sleep. I tested my
brain by going through, in my mind, all the
symptoms aud features in a difficult and per
plexing case which had been lately under my
care; my mind acted as coolly and calmly and
regularly as it bad ever done.
''I repeated to myself several passages of
poetry from different authors iu different
languages; they came as quickly and easily
to my tongue as if I had been rending from
a printed book. I gazed around and fixed
my eyes on various objects in tbe room to see
whether I should be subjected to other
optical illusion, but in other points my eyes
were as reasonable as they usually were;
they showed me uothing but the familiar
ebair aud table, and the well known pattern
of the paper on tbe wall. Then 1 looked
back at the mirror. The house waa still
Had I been reading lately a description of
such a bouse or bnd I lately seen anywhere a
picture like it I Either of those things might
possibly buve left a vivid lmpreauun upou
my mind which might baveaccounted for The
Itrange delusion. I was hot, however, able
to recollect, search my memory as I would,
that a book or painting bad brought such a
bouse and g&rdeu before my thoughts. I was
naturally neither excitable nor Imaginative;
Indeed, I was generally regarded by every
one who knew me, aud myself Into the bar
gain, as one of the most prosaic, rational
beings in the world.
My fnnrj bod never before played me tbe
smallest trick, eveu as I rode home, worn out
with watching by a sick bed, on the darkest
night; even in the many painful aceuesfuU
of death and through which my professional
life bad led me. In tbe diasectiug room, la
the severest operation, my hand had always
been iu steady as if I were peeling an orange.
All this made the present incoru preheusi Ltla
vision yet more utterly Inexplicable. Be
sides, even while I gazed at It, I knew that I
bad never felt more calm and collected and
more in an ordinary condition ot body and
mind throughout my very commonplace,
very busy history.
Would another puir of eyes see tbe house
In the mirror I wondered. With a hurried
band I rang tbe bell to test this poiut, and
summoned my housekeeper, who generally
herself waited on me. This good lady's name
was Mrs. Tnckey. It is a conin.on Devon
shire name let it be at once understood by
those who are not aware of the fact, and Is
In no way meant to bint at any unpleasant
proclivities or unwarranted whims on the
worthy dame's part ; aha was as honest and
simple minded a woman as ever handled
bunch of keys.
"Mrs. Trickey, I have rung for you to ask
you to do a very simple thing," I suid, hesi
tatingly, now that she was present, scarcely
knowing how to begin, for I felt, if I spoke
out plaiuly, my housekeeper must infallibly
think that I had suddenly taken leave of my
"What will 'ee please to have, sirp replied
Mrs. Tnckey, in true Devonshire fashion.
"Mrs. Tnckey, will you please look in tbe
glass over the chimney piece P I blurted out
rather abruptly, not knowing bow else to
And out what I wanted to discover.
"Uet aloug with your uon-nse. Master
Fred," cried Mrs. Trickey, with a toss of bar
bead, w hich was so emtrgetio it almost dis
composed the stiff frills ner cap.
ltmint be mentioned bwe that Mrs. Trickey
bad lived with my mother when I was a boy,
and that, with her, I still continued Master
Fred, though all the world besides knew me
aa Frederick lleathcote, aurgeou.
"I can assure you, Mrs, Trickov, I mean no
insult nor even a joke," I replied humbly. "1
fancied something was wrong in tbe reflec
tion of the glass; perhaps Busan had not
dusted it as she should. Will you please look
Into It with your experienced eyes, Mrs.
I was in hopes that this but implied com
jUment would have .propitiated the houw
Tteeper, but spparentfy iFhad no such elect,
for after a sl.ort inspection of the mirror she
"The glass be right enough so far as I do
see; this be . ust one of your whims, Master
"But, Mrs. Trickey, do please tell me what
you see when you look into it," I exclaimed,
seeing that 1 must be more explicit if I wanted
to gain full certainty on tbe matter.
" Why, wh it should I see but my own face.
Master FredC she retorted snappishly; "and
it be as good looking a face a the face of
many women who be ten years younger than
I be, and I c a tell 'e that it has been thought
a good look In z face by scores of men iu its
Aud herew. th she bridled considerably, and
drew herself up.
"And do yi u see nothing there besides your
face, then, M '. Trickeyr'
"Bless and ve us. Master Fred, you must
be turning tnazed, I think, or else it be that
you be makln a regular fool of me. I dont
see why you diould make up such gam mots
about my fact when you're a-knowed it these
Ust twenty y.n. I calls it very disrespect
ful, I do."
Aud with i flounce aud a bounce Mrs.
Trickey turn-d aud disappeared from the
room, leaving me alone with tbe bouse in the
mirror, which she certainly had uot seen.
1 was muHlu uncomfortably on this fact,
with my eyes tlxsd on the vision, which to
me was as distinct as ever, when the clock on
tbe chimney p ece struck a quarter to S. Then
suddenly, as it wiped out by spirit's wing,
just when the little silver chime of the clock
was ringing, house, garden, summer house,
moonlight, yellow gleam, vanished from tbe
mirror, and 1 :w nothing there save the re
flection of tbe familiar room.
It waa certuuly a more wonderful phe
nomenon thau auy which my medical books
and medical L nowleilge bad taught me, and
I sat tip late that night thinking it over and
trying vainly to account for it. As, how
ever, I could u t gain tbe slightest light on
the subject, turn the matter up and down as
I might in my srain, I came to a resolution
on two points, ind then went to bed. One of
these resolves was, that I would not reveal
tbe ciroumntan -e to any one, because I bad
always a moat hearty dislike ot gossip and
ridicule at my expense; and the other was,
that I would not allow the inexplicable vision
to trouble my t lind so as to make me incapa
ble ot tbe daily work and duty of life. My
natural calniiMsa ot temperament and my
active, busy ccurse ot existence, made me
more able to nu ke these determinations, with
some chance of keeping to tbem, than most
people lu my phice.
I slept well that night, and did not see the
house In the mil ror onoe in my dreams. Next
day I was sent f In baste to attend a danger
ous, difficult can, which required all my skill
and energy. B - the time the evening was
again come the impression made by the
strange clrcums ance of last night, bad in a
greet measure filled out of my mind.
It so faappenec that I was engaged to spend
that evening wit b my f rieuds, Mr. and Mrs.
Woodland. Mr Woodland was a banker.
and his wife was a pretty, sparkling woman
the queen of erciety in our town. She and I
were always close allies; she would chatter to
me of all her family affairs, and in a certain
way made me he r confidant. On the occasion
in question 1 wat Mr. and Mrs. Woodland's
ouly guest. Tbe .tanker slumbered in bis arm
chair, the lady b id two or three bits of gossip
to tell me about t he neighborhood, and two
or three new boott to discuss with me, and a
deal to say besidts about tbe first appearance
of a tooth iu Mia Baby s little rosy mouth.
That youug her Mne was brought down in
state in her uight dress, and I bad to examine
tbe prodigy with much circumstance and
Baby bad retired again to tbe nursery, and
had ceased her so newhat loud remonstrances
with regard to he inconvenience of being
brought downstairs to appear in the drawing
room m such a co Aoine aud at such an hour.
Mrs. Woodland w as standing on the hearth

I was looking at t le reflection of my hostess'
face in the mirror, and thinking it was cer
tainly a very pn tty one, when suddenly at
the side of the li ?ely brown eyes appeared
precisely the very same house, line tor line,
which I bad seen i J my diuiug room mirror
yesterday at this tsuie hour; garden, (lagotia
like summer house, silvery moonlight, yellow
lamplight glsvim sll were there.
I could uot help a start and a murmured
expression of worn er. Mrs. Woodloud turned
round quickly at the sound.

"I was thinking that If I were a little
handsomer man thi-n I am, I should try and
get a wife made exactly on your pattern," I
With these and 4 few more jesting words
I contrived to put. Mrs. Woodland s curi
osity to sleep aca n, while, from time to
time, I wutched the visionary house. It was
just as 1 had exiected: when the clock
shlmed a quarter to 0 it vanished exactly as
tt had done on the previous ulght.
From that time forward, wherever I
might be. if I was In tbe room with a look
big glass, I saw er ry evening from 8 to a
quarter of 0, for the next month to come, the
bouse in the mirror. Sometimes it met my
view in the looking glaa on a cottage wall,
where I was tending a poor patient, some
times in the pier glass of a fine lady's s port
men ts, sometimes in "-he mirror of a friend's
dining room as I sat st dinner.
There waa never tbe faintest change in the
vision; It was always marked by exactly tbe
same features. I cannot say but that this
perpetual haunting c f my life by so mysteri
ous an apparition did make a vaguely uncom
fortable and painful jnpression on my mind.
But by strength of w 11, and by clinging reso
lutely aud ceaselessly to all my active dutiea,
I prevented ita havin; a morbid, unhealthy
effect upon me. 1 res aaled the circumstances
to no one. but appear d to tbe outer world as
if tbaro waa no atran e page in my common
When, however, a month or so bad passed
by, there came a great, sudden, real sorrow,
which most effective!;- thrust aside all inclina
tion to brood over glo-jmy, shadowy, fondiul
troubles. One morn ug there arrived a tele
gram from Lecco, on t he Lake Como, in north
Italy, saying that my ilater, on ber way home
from India, had fallei dangerously 111 there,
and calling me at ones to her side. I knew
that Lottie's health hd been delicate ever
since her baby was b irn, and that she was
about to return to England for tbe sake of a
cooler climate and the beet medical advice. 1
knew, too, that she m wnt to return through
Italy, but I was hardly aware that she bad,
as yet, started from 1 ombay, and I bad not
the faintest notion U at her disease might
possibly take such a dangerous turn. Ko
wonder, then, that tbe tidings were a severe
Lottie waa far more to me thau sisters gen
erally are to their In others. Hue was sev
eral years younger then I was, and she had
been first my plaything, then my pupd; and
I bad experienced a pain; of real jealousy on
that day when, sittiug on a stool at my feet,
with her sweet fains hidden on my knees, she
confessed to me there v as oue w ho was more
to ber than 1 was, one who was more to ber
than all the world besh.es. This foolish feel
lug, of course, quickly passed away, and I
rejoiced to sea her a lia py bride; yet Lottie
was still my pet, my pride aud my durliug.
I will uot dwell uiKin the hurried journey,
with Fear sitting at my side, nor the long
nights and days of drvory, anxious watch
ing. It sufiices to say here that my sweet
girl was at length given back to my arms,
after, through long wee s, my medical care
and skill bad battled lth death for her.
Duriug the whole of this period the house in
the mirror never again appeared to me, and.
Indeed, in my absorbing anxiety and trouble,
the remembrance of it even hardly entered
One lovely evening in early spring, when
Lottie waa much bettsr, but not strong
enough yet to be moved 1 bad been taking a
long ramble into tbe lovoly country that sur
rounds Lake Como, anc on my return bad
lost my way. Tbe sun hud set, tbe moon had
risen, and was bathing tbs world In a silver
sea. I bad reached path by tbe lake and
was pausing to consider In which direction
Lscco lay. The scene 1 round was all oue
glory of stillness and of b'ightness, A breeze
Just stirred the waters so 'tly with kiss; the
outlines of the distant oiUa were soft and
tender, as if drawn by 1 artist angel's pen
cil; her and there amoni; tbem there was a
whit glimmer which toi I of a hamlet or a
homestead; bard by a nig 1 tin gale just struck
a single golden note, ai d then waa olleot
again, aa If be feared to 1 remit tbe calm spell
of tbe moon.
Allatono I started, nd a low exclama
tion broke from my lips. My eyes were rest
big on tbe surface of the Like, and there, mir
rored in its clear water, beheld exactly tbe
same house and garden vhlch bad so often
before I left England met my view in such a
Strang mysterious way. Disturbed, aston
ished, unaije. fq bejjeve my own senses. I
glanced round behind me, and there on a lit
tle ru.ug ground above th lake, I saw a
house which corresponded to the reflection
below, and which was in every respect th
realization of my vision. Just then the clock
of some distant church np among the bills
Th whole circumstances and coincidence
were so singular that I could not help being
impressed and startled by It Antagonistic
though my whole nature was to all imaginary
fears and beliefs, I approached the gate of
the garden, aud noted how, In every smallest
particular, even to th star Ilk flowers of
tbe creeper on the wall, even th fresco ot
tbe old woman with the basket of oranges at
ber feet, even to the slightly opened window
with the ray ot light gliding through it, it
was the complete likeness of the bouse which
had so often met my view in the mirror. The
very name of th villa filled me with a
strange eerie feeling: "La Casa dello Spee
ch ia. It bad evidently been so named from
the peculiarly clear and beautiful reflection
which it had produced In the waters of the
The complex thoughts aud feeling which
the sight of the villa add its name called np
caused me to linger near it for some little
time until I began to fear that my mind was
going to take a morbid, sickly turn, aud I re
solve.! to leave the spot at once. Just as I
had turned to go, however, a gold seal which
bod belonged to my father, aud which, there
fore, was much valued by me, happened to
fall from my watch chain, and I spent some
time iu lookiug for it, for it had rolled down
the bill into the grass.
I had at length found the seal, and was mov
ing away when the snmedistaut clock struck
a quarter to nine. Scarcely bad tbe sound
died on tbe house when a long, shrill cry
came ringing out of the bouse into the night,
apparently through the partially open win
dow. After that I cannot describe the mo
tives which impelled me. I only know that,
led by what was more like instinct than
anything else, I rushed across the garden
and entered the door of tbe lonely bouse.
There the first thing I beheld In the en
trance hall was a girl, with a fair English
face, in a state of evident great terror and
"What is tbe matterf I asked. "I heard
your cry. 1 am an Englishman, and I am
here to give you any help and service I can."
"My father, who is lying ill, has just swal
lowed poison by mistake," she answered at
once, for grief is never surprised. "I could
not help erring out when I discovered it. All
our servants happen to be out, and I have no
oue to seud to Como for a doctor."
"I am one," I said, "and with God's help, I
will save your father."
It so happened that that day I bad been
moving Lottie into more airy lodgings, and
hod put my little traveling case of medicines
and instruments, for better security, into th
pocket of my great coat, which hung on my
The rest is quickly told. I saved, by th
prompt measures I took, th poisoned man's

queen. The villa is ber father's property, and
