I It was a rainy afternoon, and wo h?.d been passing the time by telling stories. That is a very good sort of thing for a rainv afternoon , and it is a much better X 1 A. I -fi ? . 1_ A. Tf A .11 nm? man auer nignr. 11 you ion ghost stories after dark they are apt to make you nervous, whether you own up to it or not, and von sueak home and dodge upstairs in mortal terror, and unless with your back to the wall, so that you can't fancy there anything behind you. We had each told a story, and had had the usual assortment of mysterious noises and death warnings and sheeted spectors and so on. down through the whole catalogue of horrors?enough to satisfy any reasonable ghost tasser. Rut Jack, as usual, was dissatisfied. He said our stories were all second-hand stuff. There wasn't a man in the crowd who had ever seen or heard a ghost; nil our so-called authentic stories had been told us by persons who had the stoiy from other persons who saw the ghost. "One doesn't get any informa tion from that," said .Jack. ' I never expect to get so far along as to see a real ghost myself, but I would like to are and talk to one who had." Some persons appear to have the knack of getting their wishes granted. Jack is one of that ilk Just as he made the remark Davenport sauntered in and, finding out what was going on, volunteered to tell a story himself? something that hau happened to his grandmoter?or maybe it waa his great aunt ; I forgot which. It wa3 n very good ghost story as ghost storiee go, and Davenport told it well. Kven lack admitted that, but he said : "It's only second hand too. Did you ever have a ghostly experience youraelf, old man?" * Devonprot put his linger tips critically together. "Would vou believe me if I said I had ?" "No," said Jack, unblushingly. "Then there would be no use in my saying it." But you don't mean that you ever really had of course?" "J don't know. Something 4 y queer happened once. I've never been able to explain it?from a practical point of view, that is. Want to hear ab< ut it?" Of course we did. This was exciting. Noboby would ever have suspected Davenport of seeing ghosts. "It's conventional enough," he began. "Ghosts don't seein to have much originality. But it's firBt-hand, Jack, if that's what you want. I don't suppose auy of you have beard me speak of my brother, Charles. He was my senior by two years, and was a quiet, reserved sort of fellow? not at all demonstrative, but with very strong and deep all'ectio ns. When he left college he became engaged to Dorothy Chester. Sue was very beautiful and I my brother idolized her. She died u short time before the date set for their marriage, and Chas. never recovered from the blow. "I married Dorothy's sister, | Virginia. Virginia did not in the I least resemble stikingly like her j dead aunt. Wo called her Doroj thv and Chas. was devoted to her. Dolly, as we called her was al ways "l ncie unarieys girl. "When L)ollv was twelvo years old Charles went to Now Orleans i on business, and while there took yellow fever ami died. lie was buried there, and Dolly half broke her childish heart over bis death. "One day five years later, when Dolly was seventeen, 1 was writing letters in my library. That very morning my wife and Dolly had gone to NewYork en route to Europe. Dolly was going to school in Daris for a year. Iiusiness prevented my accmpanying them even as far as New York, but Gilbert Chester, ray wife's brother, was going with them. They were to sail on the Aragun the next morning. "1 had written steady for about an hour. At last growing tired, ! I threw down my pen, and leaning back in my chair, was on the 1 point of lighting a cigar when an ' unaccountable impulpe made me! I * ,i i J J 1 luin luuuu, i uropppti my cigar and sprang to my feet in amusement. There was only one door in j I the room and I had allalong been 1 facing it. I could have sworn nobody had entered, yet standing betweon me and the booklease was a man?and that man was my brother Charles ! "There was no mistaking him ; 1 saw him as plainly as 1 see you. I He was a tall, rather stout man, I ; ' with curly hair and a fair, close' clipped beard. He wora the ! same light gray suit which he had ' worn when bidding us good-by on j l the morning of his departure for | I New ()rleans. lie had no hat on, I but wore spectacles, and was standing in his old favorite atti-| tilde, with his hands behind him.

" 'Good heavens, old fellow !' exclaimed. 'Where on earth havi you come from? Why, we al thought you were dead?' "I was quite close to him whei I stopped abruptly. Somehow couldn't move another step. H< made no motion, but his eye looked straight into mine. w'Do not let Dolly sail on tin Aragon tomorrow/ he said n slow, clear tones that I heard dis tinctly.

I rushed to the station, and, having first wired tc my wife not to sail on the Aragon I found that I could connect wit! the five-fifteen train for Nevi York, I took it with the comfort able consciousness that my friends would certainly think ' had gone out of my mind. "I arrived in New York at i o'clock the next morning, and a once drove to the hotel where nr wife, daughter and brother-in law were staying. 1 found then greatly mystified by my telegram 1 suppose my explanation was ; very lame one.

"'Of course it was Uncle Chat ley,' she said confidently. 'W will not sail on the Aragon now ''Gilbert had to give in to thi decision with a very bad grac? and the Aragon sailed that da minus of three of her inteude passengers. "Well, you've all heard of th historic collision between th Aragon and the Astarte in a foj and the fearful loss of life it ir volved. Gilbert didn't laug when the news came, I assur you. Virginia and Dolly salle a month later on the Marseille and reached the othor side i safety. That's all the storj boys?the only experieuce of th kind I ever had," conclude Davenport.
