My friend Charley Delicti, from U113 city,
came up to my chaiiibtri one day lat De
cf inbi r, liiingini; rue an iiivilatiou from his
family to go lioinu uilli him and ppend
Chri-lnui". I had been a great many limen
with Charley to hi paternal roof tree, in
Iv"c", and I nevtr fulled to greatly enjoy
myself each time. I lited the old people,
nnd hIko his brothers and sisters whom I saw.
They were true, and natural Englidi people,
u ho had grown up, as it were, out of the soil
like the violets by the ha.el root or the May
bin-nuns on tho ludge-rows, lint there was
a sccrrt Vihich outweighed all tho rc-ta hun
dredfold. Charley's grown up sister Ethel
had fairly entered into posession of the va
cant space iu the cine of my affrqtions. The
scry first lime I met her she exerted her pe
culiar inlliu noe over me. What young man
duel not know the tender anticipation with

ter of his fri, nil, rvlinm bu has heard about

her broll'i r, w ho already has excited a fjen
tle inleu.t in his brea-d ? It was with this
fivling that I first tiuoiintered Miss Ethel
lh ben. I had gone wilh Charley to his
Inline. 'O.ik Hall,' E--ex, lo spend a week
iu the wild low! shooting, and it wm then I
met her for the first time. Her almost per
fect liaturrs, but rieli black iiair, her blight
complexion, her dark blue, eyes iu which
tiutii and tendtruiss si emed mirrored, hi r
ipiii t ladylike manners and sweet smile, had
captivated my heart. Succeeding visits had
only conipli-lid my tlitaldom, and her dear
image was never far from my thought; it

in a labornlory of physical apparatus. It
was ruthtrn hoprlrs passion of mine, how
enr, lor Ethel Deben Has not only beautiful
amiable, admired, but also well dowi red,and
I c.b uIhIiiI wilh legal in iimep, but at the
same time wilh very small satisfaction, that
such a prizu as she was wouldsoon be earried
oil'. .My o.Mi circunistiincis were at best only
promising, and I could only keep in tho
background while somn inoie fortunate in

part and wn the ram 'need, I!ut although
t Kepi careiuuy 111 tne Hack-ground, 1 was
only too glad lo mail injself cf Charley
Debeu's invitation tospend Christmas in her
siiciity. Like the moth, I was drawn in
invincibly to the candle, und so I went down
wiih liiin tn Dak Hall, happy to see and bo
near her again, but guarding myself cauti
ously against any betrayal of attnehmeut.
We arrived at Oak Hull on Christmas eve.
e had found a trap wailing for us at the
nearest railway station, and had driven six
miles in the dark, through a wooded tin-
md country, to tho house, which stood 011 a
hill Mirrnmded by a pa'rk wi,lh some flue
old timber. It was a wet, inflated, boister
ous night, and we were gratified to see the
warm light of the windows of the old family
home appear thio.egh trees at last. Charley
urged on the hoise, and we sooiidrew up in
trout ot the house a sepiaro comfortable.
old red brick mansion, with a pillared por
tico, muny plain oblong windows, tall chim
ney tops, and a stone coat-of-arms over the
loorway. Two great cedars stood (online)
at each end, nnd spread their black Hakes
over the lawn
Tflr. Deben, a hale, hearly old gentleman,
was ready to receive usat the door, and Mrs.
Deben met us iu the lobby, where Charley
wa soon engaged with his younger brothers
and sisters in a scramble for presents. When
I entered the drawing room I found n good
number of people there, one or two of whom
I had met before, and others who were
strangers to me. I.thel Deben was the first
to meet tne and bhake hands, She came for
ward with her usual frank manner, and
at once introduced me to another Bulling
beauty who followed her, Miss Hose Der
rick, Ethel's friend, was a fair Saxon type ol
beauty, all roses and little lilies and dimples.
Her hair was of a flaxen brown, but soft as
silk and wavy over the temples. When she
laughed her blooming face was tho incarna
tion of me rriment and fuu, Another of the
guests tn whom I was Introduced for the first
time was a young tquire called Hey wood, a
flue, liruwii-liuired, broad shouldered young
fellow, with many fine brown and broad
acrea to match, He looked aud was a good
fellovr, lata obliged to oonfeu it; bull

felt little deslro to converse with him. Tho
fact Is, he damped my fplrlts for a little
while. I wa foolish enough to fed the
slightest shndo of jealousy at seeing him,
without any reason, I own; but love does
not wait for reaons. On calmly considering
tho matter, however, I forced myself to ills,
miss any feeling of jealousy from tny mind,
because I had 110 right to entertain it. If
young Mr. Hey wood admired Ethel Deben
It was no bulties of mine. 'Le t it bo so,' I
said to myself ; and I determined to bens
cheerful under tho circumstances as if no
thought ol Ethel Deben line ever agitated
my bosom. So while lleywoeid lounged very
close to Ethel, I sat down just as ckse to
Hose Derrick, We became friends iu a mo
ment, and very soon we were laughing gaily
together over repartees that seemed to flow
(at least from me) with uiuisual copiousness
and brilliancy. Ti.u more Hono laughed at
my jokes the belter I was pleased ; and I was
not sorry lo see that Mr. Ileywood said little
to Ethel that could be called amusing. I
fear I was still jealous.
'Oh, by-lhediy, Mr. Temple," said Hoe to
me, 'I ought to tell you your bed room is
the haunted room. Do you know there is
a haunted room iu this old hou-e. wilh a
wonderful ghot in it, or voice or something?
Ethel will tell you the story. On fornur
occasions the ghost has made its appeaiatici',
or the voice has been heard about Christmas
lime, so don't be surprised ifyou hearu epuer
voice talking to-night a weird, elfin voice,
complaining of Its sad fate, and warning you
of future ills.'
'I should like to know my future lot at
least one or two things about it. I wish some
kind angel would deign to enlighten me about
them. Hut the eUys of genii, and wizards,
and magic glasses are past, and angels' visits
are very, very few and far between.'
'Oh, no 1 they are not," said Hose, 'if wo
only had eyes to seo them j you will believo
me yet. Hut nbout tho automaton 'Zoo?'
I have never seen her yet What isshe like?
They say tho old automaton 'I'sychu' luu
fallen iu love with her and is quite oil his
I thought very little nbout ghosts, or, in
deed, anything else, when Igotlo my chum
tier that night. I was too tired for think'
ing, and very soon went to bed. Next morn
ing was Christmas Day, anil according to
all immemorial legends und tale", thecountiy
ought to have been I) ing under u close white
coverlet of snow ; the holly trees, wilh their
red berries, should have been stalled with
the powdery chrystals ; and tho lanes should
have looked like the galleries of some ivory
palace under the intricate fretwork of snow
laced boughs. Hut our Christmas Day was
mild-and balmy a grceuyule. A light-grey
fog lay in the hollows, a mellow sunshine
enlivened the moist air, and gilded the bare
twigs, of tho trees against the blue sky. It
was a quiet,Mill, geuial day after the boister
ous night before, and there was a Sabbath
calm about it iu keeping with the. time.
In the forenoon wo all went to service in
the village church. I walkid there bisido
Miss Ethel, and returned with .Miss Hose,
exchanging places with Mr. Ileywood. It
was only .1 short walk across the purk to the
church, so we did not have much conversa
tion; but it was a happy time for me. Kibel
seemed kind, charming, and withal so sensi
ble, that I wished ihu lime would 111 ver
change, the walk never, never come to an
end. Hose was iu capital humor, and asked
mu if I had not hd any communications
from the spirits during the night. I said
they might have been in legions round my
night cap, pla) ing at bopeeji in my curs,
and pirouetting on my uo-e, lor. all t knew
or cared, I was si tired out last night and
had slept so soundly.. about the haunled room. Too .iirely it was

'I am a lawyer,' I replied, 'and like to seu

'Hut I suppose ou would besati-fied with
white ou black, und that is what 'Allio'

'I think we lawyers rather exposed 'Al

'That is a matter of opinion. You had
popular prejudice on your side, and plajcd
upon it to great purpose. You couldn't ex
plain tho raps, and lights, and ringing: of
bells. Ah! iht re are more things in heaven
and earth, Horatio, than am comprehended
in Coke and Hliickstone.' In the afternoon
Charley Deben nnd his brother Frank, who
had just come homo from abroad, Mr. Hey
wood and I took a long walk, and returned
to the hall in time to dress for dinner, which
was served earlier than usual.
At dinner, I found myself between Hose
Derrick and Ethel Deben. The meal was a
substantial specimen of old English Christ
mas cheer, refined by modern taste and
science. We were a merry party. Charley
Deben and his brother Frank were especial
ly entertaining. The host nnd hostess looked
the picture of good-humored, happiness ;
and the old vicar of the parish, with his rud
dy but refined features, and thin gray locks,
smiled again and again at the ready sallies
of youth, and toasted Ethel with a grave but
fatherly courtesy that was almost a benedic
tion. After dinner we had music and games,
dancing and acting charades. Often during
the dance my eyes fuitlvely sought out
Ethel, and stole a gazo at her radiant beau
ty. It her eyes chanced to turn.ln my direc
tion, I was quick to lower mine or avert
them, I danced several times with her, and
found her ever the same ; charming, gentle,
natural and true, with apparently no ves
tigo of afle-ctloii in her whole demeanor.
Heywood led her to the floor a great many
tunes, and seen.ed very attentive to her.
Her manner was at least us gracious to him
as to me. If any jealous feeling crossed me
I sought out Hose Derrick as soon as I could
in order to rgaiu a proper tone.
Supper was nnother meal almost as sub
stantial as dinner, liy this time the old
vicar and one or two more had taken their
departure, so that the party was smaller, but
even more convivial. It was not very lute
when we broke up foi the night at least 1
do not think it was. When I got to the din
ing-room, irnin vvuicn my ueii-room Hour
opened, I drew au easy chair before the Are
and "auk into it. I was in that delicious
frame of mind, induced by good cheer, well
seasontd with good wine, good company, but
above all w ltli love. 1 was deeply in love
with hthel Dtben. There was no question
lug it. My chamber was u cosy, old-fashioned
place, with high wainscoting of carved
oak, blackened by time. There was a quaint

slight sound of mucking laughter quite closo
to my lace. I listened, nnd could hardly be
lieve my ten-es, but I seem;d still to catch
a light laugh a taint, tiny, mullled kind of
laugh, but yet perfectly distinct. It seemed
to be in the air and hover over the table,
Ihere was nothing on my tabb but the
writing paper and blotiing-book, tho ink

holder was a rep re-sen tali in of Cleopatra's

iu the form of an Enypiain rphlnx, aud was
at the same time a pin cushion. It was a
neat little sphinx in dark red cloth, with a
woman's head. The body served for the
pin-cusliiou, and the pi denial for the w iper,

I must have been 01 raining, or perhaps I

CJIAI-I lilt III,
Next morning when I awoke, wilh .the
genitl sunshine1 sin-amio into my window,
the event of llie p i-t nnjlit eenii-il like a cu
rious dream or niglil-iu're, and 1 almost per
suaded myself thai I had bet-ii the ..til j.-ct 01
some waking dream; which ale (minion
enough, although Ilia I never experienced
ono myself before. Still, I was not perleet
lv satisfied willi this explanation; the whole
iill'alr seemed to me si real. I determined,
however, to say nothing about it to anbody,
and when Hose Derrick twitted me again at
the broakt.ist table about ghosts, vowed an
utter immunity from any of their claudes-
tino visitations, I thought I observed a
suppressed smile 0:1 hi r lips, but she only
'All, then 1 Mr. Temple, I'm afraid the
spirits think they will make no impression
on your hard legal smil.'
I w as left alo-ie Ihe t-reati-r part of this
day the day afier Christina. In the morn
ing the young ladies, Mis Ethel and Miss
Hose, and some of lh- children paid a visit
tn a neighboring timily, Mr. Heywood
driving them. Charley Deben, his brother
Frank and some moto went out shooting.
I remained at home, having some letters to
write, and wishing to be alone, I was some
what sulky and jealous at Heyivood'.s mo
nopoly of Ethel during the entire day. She
sat beside him ou the front seat of the trap,
and they went oil ve-ry gully P-geilier, Hue
Herrick laughing and wuviui! herliHiid bick
to me as I stood rst'ier glumly at the d mr
I found ibe drawliu room enipiy when I
went indoors and was nut sorry at it. I lay
down on a lounge r. fleeting over my vl.lt.
It had be'en a hnppv nin und et an unhap
py one. In Ethel's e-iiiup.iny I was hanpv.
and yet I was slung h thn presence ol Hey
wood, and tho attentions he paid her, I ret
soiled with inysel., and ciuie lo the conclu
sion that It was silly on my part, and use
less to be discomfited by anything of the

not satisfied that It was un iliu.iou of tho

for there was no mechanism about the little
table, with lt slender aimi and two knick-
knacks. Ventriloquism was out of the qiits
tlon, I did not know what to make uf It. It
oecttrr. d to me to consult the library about
illusions,' 'dreams, 'spiritualism,' etc., and
I went to It at once. On Ihe library table
Iny a collection of newspapers and periodi
cals, some of which were scientific, others
popular. Ihere was an electrical journal
among the former, with an illustrated cover
which interested me. I took it up, and It
opened at a marked page. Tho mystery of
the sphinx was at onco revealed. Ou tliit
pige was a diagram representing the practi
cal iiso of a new Invention called the tele-
phnui1, an Instrument for conveying actual
speech hy means of electricity, It vas the
lirst I had heard of the articulating tele
phone. I saw it all now. Charley's brother Frank
was au electrician by profession, and he
hail brought home with hlmtwosmall Amer
ican telephones. The girls had conceived
the idea of tricking me by this means, nnd
had got him to fix up a telephone wire,
willfully inclosed the little instrument In
Ihe sphinx pin-cushion on the writli g table.
1 iiouht they had the other telephone at
the other end of the wire in a convenient
place, whsre they could use it without bclng
secn or heard, and thus by spiaking into it
they were enabled to act the Oracle of Turn,
since the telephone in thcsphlux reproduced
whatever sounds they made. This revela
tion filled me wilh clee and triumnh. I
now recollected about the laughter at the be
ginning, and sudden stoppage of tho oracle
at tho end of the conversation I had had
witli the sphinx ; and as Idid notdoubtthat
Hose Derrick played the oracle, I imagined
that Ethel had suddenly ended the seance
by forcibly stopping her mouth.
I went to my sitting room and examined
the sphinx and table. Sure enough, I felt
the hard framoof tho telephone inside the
pin-cushion, and traced the wire, a fine silk
covered wire, like thread, down the leg of
the table, under the carpot, aud up the wall,
till it joined the ordinary bell wire of the
room, which had been used as a part of the
Evening ci-mo and the young ladies re
turned. I met them with my usual manner.
They had had a splendid day, and so wishe-d
I hail been along with them. I had quite
lost myself, moping up in the house all day.
The shooting party arrived soon after, and
we all spent a com fortahle, social evening
in the drawini ronn, wi h inus!e and eon-
When the ladies I1.1 1 retired for the eve
night, I was not long in following suit. I
went at ones to my chamber, and took my
e,it as quietly as possible beside tho little
waiting table, and applied my ear to the
-phiiix. I could hear indistinct sounds, as
of -penkiiu' and occasionally a little low
laughter. In a few moments tho sounds
became m ire distinct, and I heard perfectly,
ns well as recognized the voices of the speak
ers Hose and Ethel,
'I wonder if he is In his room yet?' said
'O'l, no, lie can't be,' said Ethel ; 'gen
llemen never break up all at once.'
'Now, Ethel, alter stopping me last night
coiife-s jou do like Mr. Temple a little.'
'Well, then, I do like him little.'
"And you elon't care for Mr. Heywood
not much ?'
'And I don't care for Mr. Heywood not
much ; but 1 know who d ies,'
This was indeed a revelation to me. The
blood ru-hed into my tace, and my heart
pilpilate-1 so that I feared that they might
hear it through the telephone.
'Wlio would have thought Mr. Temple
w is a poet ?' s lid Hose.
I strove to hear more, but could only
make out distinct sound. Suddenly it oc
curred to hid to make a noise to attract their
attention, and inform them that I had got to
my room. I Hung myself heavily on the
ia-y eioiir, an I heaved a long hopeless sigh.
'Oh, there he is!' I 1 e.trd Hose say, iu an
inten-e nlii-p. r. 'Hid )ou hear thai groan?
O 1 he is very bad '
There .as a period of silence. Then I
heard a y.i'iee issuing from the sphinx, in
1I y ami solemn imps. It was the voice uf
the Oracle of Turn.
'Child of mortal,' it began, 'where art
'Oracle of Turn,' I replied, 'here am I.'
'WnuliU't thou know lo whom thy desti
ny is linked in the future? Wouldst ihou
know the fate that l-aujrs over thy love ?
Would-t thou lift Ibe veil of iheiinknowu to
gaze upon the fea'ures eif thy beloved ?
Tiiou whose soul is vearning for a dainih-
ter ol thy transient race, wouldst thou know
if she loyes thee ?'
'Oracle of Turn,' I replied, in calm and
measured accents, 'know that I am indiffer
ent. Know that a child of luortals'that pas
ionatc and feeble race which you seem to
despise, can also display the unshaken self
oinmaud uf an immortal. I solicit no reve
lation Irom desliny; lam content to wait
with fortitude. Oraele of Turn, I am indif
ferent.' I heard a half suppressed 'Oh, my 1' and
that was all. Need 1 say that I wus the
happiest of men ?
Tho next morning I preserved my usual
gravity at breakfast, and read my letters
diligently, but with agitated thoughts. Du
ring the forenoou I lou-jtl au opportunity tn
seek Miss I'.ihel iu the garden, where sh
happened lo be alone.
'Miss Elbe!,' I slid, as we reached au ar
bor at the end ol the pear-treu walk, I had
a stiange expt-tit uce last night,'
he b iishe'd very deeply, and turned
aside l er head,
'Dii 5011 ever hear of the Oracle of Turn?
Tlis r was no reply.
'Ethel,' I s.nd, earnestly, taking her hand
'ou kuuw that I love you. I am hero

)'"U will be iny wife.'
Libel Deben was as true then ns she had
over bee 11. I took her in my arms, uml she
laid tit r beautiful bead on iny breast.
At this moment there was a light fut on
the walk and a light laugh on the air. W
I inked up, and saw Hose Merrick hipping
toward us wilh a roguish look Iu her face.
while Mr. Drywood stood behind at the far
end ed' the walk.
'Destiny has revealed itself at last,' the
s eld, in coming forward.
