has been tryiiifi to rob usl Susan
thinks it was n ghost. It is sho wlio has
put candles in all tho rooms to 'keep
tho ghost away,' cho fnys."
"ArIiosM Wlmtiionscnsfi!" exclaimed
Mr. Michael Arlltiff ton, drawing his
daughter's hand within hisnrm. "Now,
Florence, tell mo what really occurred."
"Yes, father," answered she. "This
ishat lmppeued: About hnlf-past flvo
o'clock Susan came into tho sitting-room
to cany away tho tea-tray, nnd sho says
that bIio saw a lady bending ovor the
davenport which stands unused in tho
corner, seemingly trying to opou it. At
first, though startled, Susan thought
tho lady was n visitor whom I had
brought in, ns X was then in tho gardon;
but when tho intruder perceived that
thoro was somo ono looking at her sho
gavo a scream, drow a veil over her faoo,
and lied out at tho window, which was
wido opon. Thero really must havo
been somebody thero, father. What
could sho want?"
"How can I tell?" returnod Mr.
Arlington, and his daughter thought ho
was disturbed by this unusual incident.
Yet sho was very suro that ho was not a
beliover in ghosts.
On roaching tho houso Susan was
called and questioned. Tho old servant
was still in a great stato of excitomcnt.
The lady was "deadly palo," sho assev
erated, "with largo, hollow oyes, and
screamed beforo vanishing."
"Como, conic, Susan; sho ran out on
tho lawn, didn't sho? That was not
vanishing," ro'nrucd Mr. Arlington.
Hut Susan was pen-inleiit about the
vauishiug, aud doipito her master's
injunctions, ihu whole ill.ige, ay resi
dents far hoytmd tho village, soon heard
of tho Laurel Oottngo ghost; nnd
amongst others, Mr. Cecil Lauton Sir
lierlram Lauton's heir.
"I will tell you what, undo," said tho
young man; "if tho ghost is tronblo
soino I shall mako acquaintance with
Mr. Arlington, aud ofl'er my sorvices in
laying tho spirit. Ono ought to help
ouo's neighbor iu such a crisis."
"My dear boj-, Mr. Arlington cau
hardly bo called a noighborj ho lives at
least a dozen miles off, you know," said
"All tho same, I should liko to trap
his ghost for him," rejoined Cecil.
It was tho beginning of April when
the rumor of the ghost at Laurel Cot
tage was first spread abroad. Toward
tho end of this month this rumor was
confined in an extraordinary manner.
Flo was in tho sitting-room alono just
as it was getting dusk; sho had just
como down stairs, and was going to
writo a lotter, when something brushed
by her in tho gloom, and beforo sho
recovered from her alarm, sho saw rt
dark-robed figure fly from tho apartment.
By tho time tho young lady regained
her presenco of mind and pursuod her
straugo visitor, no traco or sound of
her could boseon.
"Who can it bo, father?" said Flor
ence, almost in tears. "Iam afraid to
bo in tho houso now without you."
"I am puzzled too, my dear child,"
replied Mr. Arlington. "Does Susan

"Yes, father; fori was startled, and
callod out, and ran toward the kitchen.
I am afraid Susan will tell everybody, ns

Florenco was right in her conjeeturo
in a day or two all tho world around
Laurel Cottago had heard of tho re
appenrnnoo of tho "ghost" 1
Cecil Lauton was now determined to
do something to unravel tho mystery;
so ho begged a friend of his, living not
two miles from Laurel Cottago, to tako
him in for a day or two; ho also begged
tho said friend to introduco him to Mr,
and Miss Arlington.
"Ah, tako caro what yon aro about
there, Lauton," said tho friend. Tho
Arliiiglous aro charming pooplo, but as
poor as church niico. Miss Arlington
is a beauty, and seventeen take care
what yon dot"
Of courso Cecil laughed, and was not
dotertcd from naming the introduction
"I want to find tho ghost," Raid ho;
"I don't want to fall in lovo with Miss
"Well, I'll introduce you after ohnroh
to-morrow," was tho answer.
Thus it happened that noxt day, which
was Sunday, tho desired introduction

from that hour. Ho had met his fato,

was very happy ; sho did not ask her

but sho had a fixed idea that it could
not end happily, as eho had heard Sir

wealthy, and Cecil was, his hoir. No

went away or married another.
Tho month of May had grown toward
tho end o( its third week, but desplto
nil Mr, Cecil Lauton's watohiug for tho
ghost, it novcr appeared. Aud by this
time Mr, Avhm'tou had begun to think
that if all tho rooms iu his cottago had
each their supernatural visitor, it would
bo better than to h.ivo this ono driton
from its haunt at tho price of Flo' hap
piness. Ho would havo to iutimuto to
tho young man that ho oolild not como
thcro so often iu fact, that it would
bo expedient to discoutimio his visits,
his daughter being so very young, and
without a motlie,r. ,
Flo's father sighed bitterly to himself
as ho mentally docldcd this; and his
thoughts traveled back over his own
life. Onoo ho had loved, and lost his
lovo solely on account of his own
poverty; was tho Bamo fato lo pursue
Yes; tho girl ho had worshipped had
married for gold, and left him to his
poverty 1 Sho had beeomo n very great
lady, and was now n widowed countess (
widowed nnd woalthy and childless.
Ho wondcrod if sho was moderately I

depths of his soul. Ho had novcr in- j
tended to marry after this cruel desor
tiou; yet ho hail done sobecauso chanoo

had becomo devotedly attached to him.
It was thus that ho had been induced
to oher his hand to tho gcntlo lady who
had been Florenco's mother, and whor
died fully eight years beforo. I
It was ou tho very noxt day after his j
soliloquy that Florenco camo slowly i
across tho lawn nttaehed to their small
dwelling (it wai about half-past seven '
in tho evening), aud sho was about to
enter tho sittiug room through tho
window, when hor alarmed oyes caught
tho view of a shadowy figure bcudiug
over tho davenport in tho corner.
Florenco drow n quick breath, sup
pressed a cry, and, determined to ascer
tain tho truth, mado a step within tho
"Who aro yon? Why do yon como
here?" faltered tho frightenod girl.
Tho flgtiro at tho desk smothered an
exclamation of fear and sped to tho
door, which, however, sho found locked;
for Susan, tcrriflod lest tho ghost
should reappear, would fain havo
closed door and window in her master's
absence; but Florenco had enjoined her
to leavo tho .window opon this lovely
evening, so eho had eontentod herself
with closing tho door of tho sitting
room. This way of retreat thus cnt off, tho
"ghost" stoppod short, attempted to
pass tho lady of tho house, but Floronco
was too quick for her, intercepting tho
path, and hastily closing tho window,
for tho girl regained her courage as sho
perceived that tho intruder looked ter
rified and sad, and-was trembling from
head to foot,
"Who aro yon? Why do yon como
hero?" repeated Florence, in an un
It was difficult for her to imagine that
tho graceful, willowy form and pale,
beautiful faco of tho intruder belonged
to a thief, and certainly thoy wore not
those of a ghost
' Hush I hush I have pity on me. Do
not betray mo 1" implored tho other.
" liolray you 1" echoed Florence. "I
must ask what you moan, Who are
"Who aro youl" replied the lady, in
ft low, agitated voice, which was yet
full of melody. Florenco's heart was
fast melting toward her unexpected
" Who am I ?" said tho girl. "I live
hero. I am Florenco Arlington. Do
you know my father ?"
"Oncol did T'exelaimed tho stranger,
sinking on her knees. "Oh, Florenoo
let mo call you so has your fathci
nover spoken to you of Ethel Lano?"
"Nover, that I remomber," replied
tho wondering Florence.
"Nor of Lady Lillington?"
"I havo heard that Lady Lillington
bos bought a houso in this neighborhood
that is all I know of her," answered
Florence, wondering moro and more.
"I was Ethel Lano now Iam Count
ess of Lillington tho woman whom
your father first loved aud who has
always loved him. Florenco, I have
como hero to ascertain if ho has quite
forgotten me. If ho has not I will
venture all; I will lot him understand
that I havo nover forgotten him 1"
By this timo Florenco's heart wai
beating fast and sho strotohod out hoi
hands to Lady Lillington, though Bhe
could not speak nt this moment Ah,
now sho comprdioudod tho moaning oi
ono or two remarks her mother had lei
fall from her dying lips relativo to hoi
" Ho has made mo so happy! Ho hat
been always so tender and so noble,
though I was not tho woman he loved.'
Sho had learnod tho sad romance it

had begun torcalizo that tho romance ot
her own lifo would bo sad; for sho
could novcr hope to marry Cecil Lauton
sho had heard that his nuolo was a
stickler for his own dignity and for
wealth on both sido3 of an engagod
couplo, or poverty on both sides ; that
mado tho match equal. Even if Cocil
over declared tho lovo which shono in
his eyes, how could sho accept it, when
it might bring him to poverty ? But ho
would go away aud nover dcolaro it
"Speak to mol Do not turn against
mo I" entreated Lady Lillington, and
then tho next moment Florenco was
weeping in her arms.
It was somo timo beforo she grew com
posed onough to quostiou Lady Lilling
ton about what sho wished to get out of
"Florenoo, that will settlo tho ques
tion 1" was tho reply. "Your fathor told
mo eighteen years ago, when ho was
but twenty-throo, aud I not quito your
ago, that ho loved mo so fondly that
oven my desortion would not quito kill
his lovo that ho would guard forovor a
littlo wator-oolor I had given him, a
likeness of mysolf. 'Seo hero,' ho said ;
I put it hero, Ethol, und thoro it shall
dtay till it is buried with mo or till I
joyfully plaeo it where my oyes can

Florouoo, is it tlmo now? If so, it is a
gago that ho loves mo still ; if not, I duro
not ask him tn forgivo tho past, and to
share my fortune I"
"And this is why yon oamol" cried
Florouco, throwing her arms around
It was ogrood between tho loving
confederates that the countess should
pay ono moro visit to Laurel Cottago for
the purposo of ascertaining whether tho
shabby littlo davouport contained her
likeness; but that this timo Florenco
should loud her aid by obtaining tho
key of tho csontoiro, and by admitting
her herself to tho sitting-room early ono

Tho day dawned which was to havo

to defer his journey.
Thero was no possibility of lotting tho
countess know of this chaugo of plans,
but Flotouco strengthened herself with
lcllucthig that bo long bofoio breakfast

Very softly tho girl deseouded very
gently she unfastened tho long shutters
to admit Lady Lillington, who camo in,

"Havo you tho key, my darling

"Hero I hero I" whispered back tho
excited Floronco ; "nud tho portrait is

Hardly had sho spoken tho words
when tho door unclosod, and Michael
Arlington, hor father, walkod in. Somo
restless memory had kopt him wakeful ;
ho had delected tho noise of Florenco's
opening door ; imagining that some
thing was tho matter, ho had gone to
his daughter's room and found it empty,
then ha had followed down stairs, and
had como faco to faco with Ethel, his
With ono faint cry tho latter had
thrown herself into Florence's arms.
"Father I oh, father, sho loves you
so I" said tho young girl, disengaging
herself from Lady Lillington, and steal
ing from tho room.
All tho country was soon afterward
elcctiitiod by hearing that Mr. Michael
Arlington was goiug to marry tho still
lovely Countess of Lillington, and that

It was in tho loveliest glade of Lilling
ton Park that Cecil L.tuton told his talo
of affection to the happy Florenco ; nor
had tho lovers anything now to fear
from Sir Bertram's refusal to consent to
their bridal, for it is a wholly different
thing to wed tho daughter of a man who
has just married a very wealthy widow,
holding a high position in soccity, from
that which is involved by wodding tho
child of a penniless man.
Only to Cecil, and under promiso of
secrecy to Susan, was tho solution of tho
ghost story revealed ; but it was many a
day beforo tho villago folks ceased to
declare that Laurel Cottago was haunted.
