were c"omln' ome, nnd what wl' ane thing
an' another, I lost my way. An' pres
ently, as I were stumblln' along In tho
wnrk, comes another crackle o' llghtnln'.
an" lookln' up, what should I sco but this
cro cottage. 'T were newer-lookln' then,
wi' n. door nn' winders, but the door wns
shut nn' tho winders was dark so theer
I stood in the rain, not llkln' to disturb
the stranger, for 'o were a gert, fierce,
unfriendly kind o' chap, an' uncommon
fond o bcln' loft alone, llowo'evcr, nrter
a while, up I goes to th door, nn" knocks
(for I wero a gert, strong, strappln', well

days, d' ye nee, an' could give n good

th' door, an' knocks wl' my list clenched,
all ready (nn' a tidy, slrablo flst It wero
in those days) but Lord! nobody nn
swered, so, at last, I lifted thu latch."
Here the Ancient paused to draw a snuff
box from his pocket, with great delibera
tion, noting my awakened Interest with a
twinkling oye.
"Well?" I inquired.
"Well," ho continued slowly, "I lifted
th' latch, nn' give a push to the door,
but it would only open a Httlo way an
Inch, p'r'aps, an' Btuck." Iloro ho tapped,
and opened his Bnuff-box.
"Well?" I Inquired again.
"Well," ho went on, "I give It a gert,
big push wl' my shoulder (l were a nne.
strong chap In those days), an Just as it
Hew open, comes another flash o Ugnt

"A boot" I exclaimed. ,.,,,.
"A boot as ever was," nodded the
Ancient, nnd took a pinch of snuff witn
grCBt apparent gusto.
"Go on," said I. "go on."
"Oh! it's n fine story, a fine storyl ho
chuckled. "Theer bean't many men o my
ago as 'ns fund a 'ung man In a thunder
storm! Well, as I ton ye, j. seen u uvr.
likewise a leg, nn theer were this ero
wanderln' man . o' the roads a-danglln
behind th' door from a stapll-look ye!
ho exclaimed, rising with some little dif
ficulty, and nobbing into tho hut, 'theer
be th' very stapil, so It be!" and he
pointed up to n rusty iron staple that
had been driven deep" into tho beam above
thfl rtnor.
"And why," said I, "why did ho nan
"Soeih' o' 'ad no friends, and never told
nobody nobody never knowed," answered
tho old man, shaking his head, "but on
that theer stapil 'o 'ung Msself, nn' on
that theer stapil I fund 'im, on a stormy
night sixty nnd six year ago come
"You have a wonderful memory I said I.
"Ay, to be sure: a wunnerful mem'ry,
n, wunnerful mem'ry!"
"Sixty and six years la an age," said I.
"So It be." nodded the Ancient. "I were
a fine young chap in thoso days, tall I
were nn' straight as a arrer. I be a
bit (MfTerpnt now."
"Why, you are getting old," said I.
"So 's f- stapil yonder, but t' stapil looks
n'Eh ab good as ever."
"Iron generally wears better than flesh
nnd blood," said I: "It's only natural."
"Ay, but 'e can't last forever," said the
Ancient, frowning, nnd shaking his head
at tho rusty, staple. "I've watched un,
mrnih ln an' month out, all these years,
nn' seen un growln' rustler an' rustler.
'I'll last 'e out yet,' I've said tu un 'o

"Wonderfully!" said I
"An' sn strons as n bull?"
"To bo sure."
"An' t' stnpll can't last much longer h,
malstcr? so old an' rusty ns 'o bo?"
"One would hardly think so."
"Not so long ns a tur'Me vlg'rus man,
like I be?" he Inquired, with a certain
wistful appeal In his eyes.
"No," I answered Impulsively.
"I knowed It I knowed It," he chuckled.
feqbly brandishing his stick, "such a poor
old stapil as 't Is, all eat up wl' rust.
Every time I como 'ere n-gntherln water
cress, I come In an' give un a look, an'
wntch un rusttn' away, an rustln' away;
I'll see un go fust, arter all, so I will!"
and, with another nod at the staple, he
turned, and hobbled out into the sun
shine. And seeing how, dcsplto his brave show
ing he labored to carry the heavy basket,
I presently took it from him, disregarding
his protests, and set off by his side; yet,
ns we went, I turned once to look back
ut the deserted hut.
"You 'm thlnkln' 't is a tur'blo bad
plnce at night?" said the old man.
"On the contrary," I answered, "I was
thinking it might suit a homeless man
like roe very well Indeed."
"D' ye mean to live there?" exclaimed
tho Ancient.
"Yes," said I.
"Then you bean't afraid o tho ghoat?"
"No," I answered,
"P'r'aps you bo one o' they fules as
think theor bean't no ghosts?"
"As to that,"I answered, "I don't know,
but I don't think I should be much afraid,
and It is a great blessing to have some
spot on this unfriendly world that we can
call 'home' oven though it bo but a hut,
and haunted."
In a little whllthe path we followed
led up a somewhat steep ascent which,
though not so precipitous as the place
where I had entered the hollow, was a
dlfllcult climb, notwithstanding; seeing
which, I put out a hand to nld my aged
companion. But he repulsed me almost
"Let be," he panted, "let be, nobody's
never 'elped me up this 'ere path, un'
nobody never shall!" So up we went,
the Ancient nnd I, side by Bide, and very
slowly, until, the summit being reached,
he seated himself, spent nnd breathless,
upon a fallen tree, which had doubtless
served this purpose many times before,
and mopped nt his wrinkled brow with a
trembling hand.
"Ye see," he cried, as soon ns he had
recovered hi. breath sufficiently, "ye see.
I be wpnnerful spry an' active could
dance ye a hornpipe any day, If I was so
"On my word," said I, "I believe you
couldl But where are you going now?"
"To Blss'n'urst!"
"How far 1. that?"
'"Bout a mile acrost V fields, you can
ee the pint o' Joel Amos's oast-'ouse
above the trees yonder."
"I. there a good inn at Blsslnghurst?"
"Ay, there's T,he Bull' comfortable,
an draws fine alel"
"Then I will go to BUainghurst."
"Ay, ay," nodded the old man, "If It
be good ale an a comfortable Inn you
want you need seek no further norr Bis
'n'hurst; ninety an' one year. I've lived
there, an I know,"
"Ninety-one years!" I repeated.
"As ever wast returned the Ancient,
with another nod. "I be the oldest man
tn these parts' cept David Relf, an' '
died last .year" . , , ,
"Why then, if he's dead, you must be
(he oldest," said I. . ,,
"No." said tho Ancient, .haklng his
head, "ye see It be this wayt David wer
my brother, an' uncommon proud 'e were
o' beln' the oldest man in these pearts,
an now that e bo dead an' gone it du
seem a poor tning am a very poor iiunm
to tak' 'vantage of a dead man, an' him
my own brother!" Baying which, the
Ancient rose, end we went on together,
aide, by side, toward BUainghurst village.
