TIIE rCPJVNTON TEIBTJNE-miDAT MOKNIITG.' JULY G, 18D1.
I remember perfectly how it happened.
I received an invitation from my old friend
nod fellow artist, Ktuuly lltircourt, to
spend week with him at Harcourt park.
It waa early in the season, and only a few
other guests were invited. Although my
fricndnliip with Stanly dated buck to days
at Eton, I had never visited the park, and
I accepted with alacrity.
Bt-ftire storting I slipped into my pocket
my latest purchase at "the old curiosity
shop" a braoelut of twintud Rold, with a
miniature on it, surrounded by diamonds.
This out of the way comer in Luudou,
culled by Stanly "the den," and which I
had christened "tho curiosity shop," at
tracted us frequently. Hera we bought a
good ifcal of our studio paraphernalia
effective drapery, swords and old armor.
The bracelet, I felt convinced, had a his
tory, although Jlr. Iwiac, solo proprietor
of tho shop, could give me no inforuiatiou
concerning it. lie had purchased it a few
lnontliB before at the bankrupt sale of
Ii , tho celebrated jeweler. Tho gold,
Mr. banc remarked, was good, but the
brilliants were oil color and the minia
ture of doubtful execution. I did not agree
with him on the last point, for I admired
the portrait extremely. It represented a
man of iilxmt US, with n sail, pensive face,
which reminded me of the Kramer portrait
of Hums, although it fell a little short of
the ideal beauty of that picture. From
the dress high rolling collar and stock
I concluded that it liad been painted some
time lu thy fifties. It attracted me strange
ly from the first, nor was I content until
I had become the owner of it. Tho sum
paid was no doubt but n fraction of its
real value, for although Mr. Isaac was a
Jew he would often let us have tilings for
0 mere song. Perhaps be was not wholly
disinterested in these transactions, kuow
ing w .U that we would speak o good Word
for him. Indeed we gave the littlo shop
quite a boom, and one particular style of
candlestick became so popular that it was
known as "tho Isaac."
I considered the bracelet A treasure, and
1 anticipated surprising Stanly witli my
i;ood fortune, at the same time niakiug
Mm quite green with envy.
Arriving at my destination, I found n
cordial welcome. Stanly made an ideal
host, while Lady llurcourt, his mother,
did the honors most gracefully. His sister
Kditli I had not seen for years, and I found
her a charming girl tall and superbly
proportioned, with reddish brown hair and
that wild rose complexion which seems to
belong exclusively to Kuglish maids
with nil due admiration for my American
I And as for Harcourt park, it was fasci
nating. Tho house was of gray stone, a ram
bling structure which had been remodel
ed, until hardly a trace of its original de
sign remained. The older parts the tow
er and outer staircase were almost in ru
ins and were covered with ivy.
" You aru to choose your room, old fel
low," said Stanly as wo were exploring
tho grounds. "What will you havef

northern projection, Georgo I; southern
projection, Uenrgn III, anil tho rest, grand
medley, principally Victoria in the thirty
fifth year of her reign. You see, you can
choose any period of history and your fa
vorite sovereign, but if you have an eye to
comfort I should recommend Victoria."
"Isn't there a haunted chamber?" I ask
ed. "Such a mixture ought to develop
rnmcthing of that sort, and I urn particu
larly fond of ghosts. Wait a moment," I
continued, not heeding my companion, "I
pee just what I want. Look I the threo
window .4 up there. No, higher tip to the
right, with the stone ledges and blue hang
ings." My friend's face fell.
"Really, Hal, I am afraid it's impossi
ble. It hasn't been occupied for years. In
fact, when the whole house was put in re
pair, that room and the one next to it were
left oivs. My mother had a little senti
ment about them, for they belonged to my
father's favorite brother. He is dead, you
know. Still, if you don't mind being rath
re uncomfortable, it might bo managed."
"It was merely a whim," I answered.
"I was thinking what a glorious view you
must get from the last window, but ot
course I shall be delighted with any other.
1'rny don't give it a thought."
"I have no earthly objection," Stanly
continued, "and I doubt if my mother

the room next mine, but Wilson shall

graciously consented, but I noticed that

When the room was shown me, I conld
hardly suppress an exclamation of surprise
"You admire it, I see," said Stanly.
"Nearly everybody does."
. "Admlrel" I answered. "Admire is a
poor word. It is superb."
The wails were hung with Gobelin blue
tapestry. Tho woodwork was ivory white,
and the ceiling was beautifully carved in
arabesques of gold. Above t he hangings,
in the wide, curved frieze, were medallion
portraits of tlio court of Louis XIV.
The furniture was very beautiful and
In perfect harmony with the decorations.
1 There were luxurious divans, such as

"And you would never have shown me
this, if I had not insisted on taking pos

"But it is in such perfect couditionl"
' ritanly smiled a little sndly. "My moth-'

prefer the old oak nnd rugs, but for one

penting the only adjective that seemed fit

tlie fifties. Ho died shortly after his mnr
rlage, ahd tho room has never been occu
pied, save once or twice, but it is a long
story. I will tell you later, say tomorrow,
when we have more time."
The evening passed off agreeably, and It
was late when we retired.
"Happy dreams, Hal," said Stanly as
be left me at the door.
By the light of the candles, the room
wag moro beautiful than ever. The faces
from the frieze seemed to look down upon
me. Thero were Mme. Maintenon, cold
and cynical; La Valliere, mild and gentle
fascinating Mme. de Kambouillet and Ju
lie d'Argenucs, fuir&t of all. '
What waa tho mystery connected with
the room 7 What secret did these patched
and powdered ladles guard? I found that I
conld not drlvo the subject from my mind,
and after I had gone to bed and lay look
ing up at the celling, the gold tracery dim
ly visible in the moonlight, I still won
darcd what It could be. -'
I do not know how long I had slept when
1 was awukened most suddenly. Thero
was no noise not a sound pervaded the
room 4nd yet I sat np in bed wide awake.
The silence seemed oppressive, almost suf
focating. I scanned the room to see if
everything was the same us when I wont
to bed. Yes, the position of each chuir
and tablo wus identical. I looked up at
the faces. -They were one confused mass.
Then 1 followed the tapestry hangings
with my eyes, beginning at tho left and
looking into every fold. As I neared the
right, my attention was riveted on what
seemed to be a full length portrait of a
young and beautiful girl. How, in my
close examination of the room, I had fail
ed to notice it seemed to me inexplicable.
The light that streamed in from itn ad
jacent window allowed every line. The
face was pale, with dark, luminous eyes,
While the hair, equally dark, was parted
nnd puffed slightly on the sides. As nearly
as I could mako out, it whs the fashion
of 30 or 40 years back. Tho gown was
white, soft and clinging, with short waist
and loose sleeves. The frame seemed lost
in darkness, but tho face m"l figure were
I now felt certain that the picture was
not there when I entered the room, and
yet how was its existenco to bo nccouuted
Could tho wind have drawn back tlio
tapestry, thus revealing some old family
portrait? And who was this charming
I now noticed pointn which had escaped
meat first the exquisite molding of the
arms nnd hands, the jeweled dagger in tho
coils of dark hair, which even in paint
seemed to change nnd flash, and the back
ground, which appeared to be copied from
the very tapestry of tho room. Tho face
fascinated nie. The ryes, ho dark and mag
netic, seemed to burn beneath their arched
brows, nnil as I gaged, they drooped, al
most closed, then dilated.
Good heavens! this con til lie no portrait!
The arms were moving!
Thu hands clasped and then fluttered to
the sides, then slowly went up to tho
head and took the dugger from the black
coils of hair.
Surely this was no painted canvas. I
tried to rise, to reach for the bell, but I
seemed Ixiunil hand and foot. Kvery (race
of energy had left mo, It was as if my
own life nnd activity had lieon transferred
to thu flguro before nie, leaving me lifeless
as clay. As I looked, thu girl bent her
head over the dngger, nnd when she raised
it I shuddered. The face was beautiful
still, but every bit of feeling was gone,
leaving it cold, sinister, cruel. Then she
raised her nrins high abnvo her head and
tho lips moved. No sound came, but I felt
that In that moment she had made a
vow. Tho lijw purled as if in laughter.
All was silent, but it was so hard and
cruel! Then all grew confused. The face
and llguro seemed to melt away. I closed
my eyes for a moment, and when I looked
again the background of t he picture seem
ed the same, but here the resemblance
Ou n low divan reclined a man of per
haps !!'.!. His eyes went closed; lih face
was very pale, but it was not the pallor
of death. His dress corresponded in pe
riod with thatof the girl's p;own, although
ho looked 10 years her senior.
The face was very familiar. Somewhere
and I racked my brain in vaiu to re
member where I had seen that face. Ev
ery line I knew. . How long the man re
clined thus I cannot 1e!l. it seemed hours.
It wus in all probability n few moments,
perhaps only Keconds. A door seemed to
open somewhere in the rear, and the girl
entered. She bent down over thu man
and listened, then softly knelt at bis side.
When she rose, the jeweled dagger slipped
to the Iloor. Her bauds trembled now, but
the face remained unchanged.
Once mm call grew indistinct, and when
I could distinguish form and color I
seemed to be looking into a room paneled
with oak from floor to ceiling. Before
one panel stood the girl. Her hand moved
uncertainly over it, and. then chose tho
next one. It opened, as if by magic, dis
closing a space about a foot square. Into
tli is she dropped the dagger. For the third
time tho colors mingled, and again I was
looking at the motionless figure on the di
van. His faco seemed like nlabastcr in
contrast with his dark hair. Ono hand,
delicate as a woman's, hu tig at his side:
Suddenly it flashed across nie that the face
before mo was identical with tho minia
ture on the bracelet. Yes, every feature
was the same. The high, rolling collar
and stock which ho wore completed the
resemblance. Had it been in my power to
sink back on my pillow Icertnitily should
havo done so at this discovery, but as
movement of any kinfl on my part wns
impossible I could only gap.
Near the divan stood the girl. Her arms
hung mot ionless at her sides. She was
almost as pale as he, save her lips, which
wero scarlet. Her beauty repelled and yet
fascinated me. Never had I beheld such
a face. She shivered slightly, and slowly,
very slowly, sank down nt his side. Her
hair became unfastened and fell over her
like a veil. 1'or one instant I closed my
eyes. The horror of it was overpowering.
When I opened them, alio lay as if lifeless,
and her hair, no longer black, gleamed In
the moonlight like driven snow.
A moment later there wus only tho tap
es! ry stirring in tho wiud.
Then I lost consciousness, and when I
came to my senses the sun was high in
the heavens. Before descending tho stairs
I took the bracelet from the case for a close
examination. There was no, room for mis
take the faco and that which I had seen
in the night wero one and the same.
To come down from that chamber to
the cozy breakfast room seemed like stop
ping from ono world inlo another, It may
have been imagination, but I fancied that
all regarded mo rather curiously.
Lmly Harcourt was tho first to break
tho silence. " Von rested well, I trust?"
sho said quietly, but as I thought with
I answered briefly in tho affirmative.
"And hnd pleasant dreums, Hal?" In
"I don't think I dreamed nt nil," I re
plied, and tho subject wns dropped.
Immediately after breakfast I found an
opportunity to remind my host of his
promise in regard to tho room. It is need
less to sny that I was now doubly nnxioua
to know its history.
An hour later wo wero seated alone lu
the small library, acknowledged by nil to
be Stanly's special property.
"It la a long story," lie said, "and I
hardly know whr.ro to In'gin, but perhaps
it would be as well to got to tho point nt
once. First, let me say that it is only my
great friendship for you, Millstone, that
lends mo to apeak of this. It is something
we seldom mention.

"Last night," I said so'ftly.

of excellent workmanship, or apparently
so, when it was disentangled it wns in
pieces. It seemed n trifle at the timo, but
superstitious people remembered it."
"Was it tho bracelet containing her por
trait?" I asked.
"No, it was bis."
Stanly rose from his chair nnd paced
tho room, looking at mo in some nnxiety.
"Odd how the mere relating of tiomo
thing you know only by hearsay stirs you
He seated himself and continued:
"Tho guests were late in taking their
departure, and it was long after midnight
when tho family retired. My uncle had
gone to his room somewhat earlier, not
feeling particularly well.
"That night," and his voice sank to a
whisper, "he wns murdered yes, murder
ed in ids own fiouso. Next morning they
found him stretched lifeless ou one of the
blue divans nnd Lady Beatrice uncon
scious at his side."
I leaned back in my chair, while a feel
ing of deadly faintness caine over me. I
could hardly breathe.
"There is little more to tell," Stanly
continued. "The deed was done. There
was no doubt of that, but who did it is
to this day a mystery. Of- course mnny
were suspected, but suspicion fell chiefly
I waited in suspense.
Hepuused a moment and then said soft-
"Cecil Richie. It was brought out that
be was the last to leave the house, and his
devotion to Beatrice was an open secret."
"Who else?" 1 managed to ask.
"An obi family servant, who disappear
ed soon after with ono of the maids. But
what possible motive could ho have had?
Ho wus devoted to Lord Stanly and nl
ways had been and was a favorite with
the whole household. At this time certain
jewels also disappeared. The dagger that
Lady Beatrice wore in her hair that very
night was never seen again, nnd the bro
ken bracelet is to have melted into
thin nir too. I regret thu loss of the lat
ter extremely, for it was the solo portrait
of Lord Stanly, nnd the marked resem
blance he bore to my fnther would have
made it doubly precious. Then the dia
monds made it very valuable, fur they
wero of (he purest water. The servant, as
I said, disappeared, and Cecil Hichie, evi
dently finding Knglish air not quite to his
taste, went abroad and to all appearance
dropped out of existence."
"Was no one else suspected?"
"My mother," und Stanly again drop
ped his voice, "bad one theory which dif
ered from that of everybody else, and that
wns that Lady Beatrice herself did the
deed." lie paused for me to take in the
full import of tho words.
"Poor mother! She never liked Bea
trice. There bad always been a good deal
ot girlish rivalry between thorn, and I
sometimes think Hichie wns atthu bottom
of that too."
"Bather odd," I Interrupted, "provid

should have ufttrward married brothers."
"Yes, the wholo affair from beginning
to end is st range nnd one I should certain

"What Is your own theory, Stanly? Do
you agree with your mother?"
"Do you think lain mad?" ho replied.
"How could I believe a young girl capable
of such a thing? Sho was heartless; but,
good heavens, it takes more than lack of
heart to do such a deed! I should suspect
Captain liichie far sooner, and yet all his

"I will compel him to release me as soon
as possible," I answered gnyly, and the
"I fenr I have been rather selfish, Hal."
"Not at all. I haven't had my say yet.
First let me ask if you have ever doubted

"Generally yes," laughed Stanly.
"Very well. then, listen to what lam
about to say nnd never again express your
disbelief in ghosts."
I began disconnectedly, butbeforo I hnd
gone very far my friend was as white and
speechless as I could wish.
"Now," said I, "let me see Lady Ben
trice's portrait, for that will be the final
test, nnd after that I hnve something to
show you," nnd I drow out the littlo box.
When Stanly returned with the bracelet,
I guvo a cry, for tho face that looked out
from its frame of diamonds was tho one I
had seen tho night before the same dark
eyes, the puffed hair even the gown wns
not unlike. The bracelet was of twisted
gold, the only difference in the two being
that tho diamonds in mine were of inferior
quality, and a suspicion now Hashed across
mo that they wero not tho original stones.
"Now," said I, "you must see my latest
purchase from Isaac," nnd with consider
able pride I opened the box and handed it
to Stanly. I have seen surprise depicted
on the human coifntennnce, but I never
saw, nor have I seen since, quite such an
expression as came into my friend's face.
After that our talk wns absorbing, and it
is needless to say that Edith and tennis
were forgotten. Stuuly was eager to go
London, Hnd L and ferret out the
brncelet mystery at once.
Later iu ttfe day wo examined the pan
eled room, but no amount of tapping and
pressing would reveal the hidden recess.
That night we watched In the white and
gold room, but tho silent guests did not
appear. Tho rest of tho week passed off
delightfully. Kdith and I became excel
lent friends. When I left Harcourt park,
I carried away two distinct impressions,
one of Lady Beatrice and tho other of
Stanly and I spent a fruitless week In
searching for L , and when we at Inst
found that worthy the information which
he gave us was anything but satisfactory.
He remembered vaguely about tho brace

he thought by a woman and was never
called for. As for removing the diamonds,
he was shocked that one of his high stand
ing should be accused of such a thing. As
for the Jew, he hnd purchased the brace
let nt bin salo when mnny such articles
went for nothing positively nothing.
Almost immediately I began n full
length portrait of Lady Beatrice ns I first
beheld her against the tapestry hangings.
I hnd tho miniature as a guide, but that
was scarcely necessary, for her face haunt
ed me continually. One morning when
tho picture was nearly finished I received
the following telegram from Stanly:

A box arrived Inter, and when opened
disclosed a dagger of quaint workman
ship. It wns dim with rust, and the blado
was badly damaged, but the jewels were

The portrait was finished. It won me
fame and fortune, nnd fume and fortune
won Lady Harcourt's consent to my inur
