hearth and Home
“Barney,“ said she, pulling her hands
silty from his grasp when he would have
kissed her. " I've a test for you before I
can give you any answer. There is a
corpse lying in the chamber where my
grandsire died—in the untenanted wing of
the house. If you dare sit with it there
all night, and let nothing drive you from
your post, you will not ask me to marry
you again in vain."
"You will give me a light, a bottle of
wine, and a book to read."
" Nothing!" ,
"Are these all the conditions you can
offer me, Barbara?"
"All. And if you get frightened, you
need never look me in the face again."
"I'll take them, then."
So Barney was conducted to his post by
the lad who had been instructed in the
secret, and whose involuntary stare at
Ernest's placid face as it lay in the coffin
was interpreted by Barney to be natural
awe of a corpse. He took his seat, and
the boy left him alone with the darkness,
the rats and the coffin.
SOOll after, Fritz, the tanner, arrived,
flattered and hopeful, from the fact that
Barbara had sent for him.
"Have rza changed your mind, Bar
bara?" he asked.
" No; and I shall not until I know that
you can do a really brave thing."
" What shall it be? I swear to satisfy
" I have a proposal to make to you.
My plan requires skill as well as courage."
" Well, in this house is a man watch
g by a corpse. Ile has sworn not to
ve his post until morning. If you can
make him do it, I shall be satisfied that
you are as smart a man and as brave as I
require a husband to be."
" Why, nothing is so easy!" exclaimed
Fritz. " I can scare him away. Furnish
me with a sheet, show me into the room,
and go to your rest , Barbara. You shall
find me at the post in the morning."
Barbara did as required, and the tanner
stepped blithely away to his task. It was
then nearly twelve o'clock, and she
sought her own chamber quickly.
Barney was sitting at his vigil, and, so
far, all had been well. The night seemed
very long, for he had no means of count
ing the time. At times a thrill went
through him, for it seemed as if he could
hear low, suppressed breathing mot far
away; but he pirsuaded himself that it
was the wind blowing through the crevl-.
ces of the old house. Still, it was very
lonely, and not at all cheerful.
The facto in the coffin gleamed whiter
through the darkness. The rate squeaked
as if a famine were upon them and they
smelled dead flesh. The thought made
him shudder. Ile got up and walked
about, and something made a slight noise
as if somebody was behind him, and
he put his chair with its back against the
wall, and sat down again. lie had been
hard to work all day, and at last, in spite
of everything, he grew sleepy— finally he
nodded and snored.
Suddenly it seemed as if somebody had
touched him. He awoke with a start,
and saw nobody near, though in the cen
tre of the room stood a white figure.
" Curse you, get out of this!" he ex
claimed in a fright, using the first words
that came to his tongue.
The figure held up its right arm and .
slowly approached him. Ile started to
his feet. The spectre came nearer, press
ing him into the corner.
"The d-1 take you!" cried Barney in
Involuntarily he stepped back; still the
figure advanced, coming nearer and near
er, and extending both arms, as if to take
him in a ghaptly embrace. The hair
started up ou Barney's head; he grew
desperate, an 4 just as the gleaming arms
would Inive touched him,
he fell upon the
ghost like a whirlwind, tearing of the
sheet, thumping, pounding, beating and
kicking, more and more enraged at the
resistance he met, which told him the
As the reader knows, he was big, and
Fritz was little; and.willie he was pum
melling the little tanng unmercifully, and
Fritz was tryinglh vain to get a lunge at
Barney's stomach, take the wind out of
him, both pinuging and kicking like
horses. 4 they were petrified by hearing a
"Take one of your size, big Barney!"
Looking 'around, they swif • thei corpse
sitting up hr his coffin.. This was too
much. They released each other and
sprang for the door. They never knew
how they got out; but they ran home in
hot haste,paatinglike stags.
It was Barbara herself who came and
opened the door upon Ernest the next
,early; one more little nap,"
said he, turning over in the coffin.
80_1110 married him; and though she
sent Friti and Barney invitations to the
wedding, they did not. appear. If they
discovered the trick,• they kept the know
ledge to themselves, and never wi ll ingly
faced Barbara's lauehini eyes again.
