young lady, while .Mr. Schuyler was
frantically Instituting tin unavailing
search for some kind, any kind of head

one finger at a bust of Schopenhauer,
and Schuyler, with an exclamation of
relief, captured from the philosopher a
soft felt hat and adorned his own head
with It without much loss of time.

"Hutton my glove," ordered the head
of the family, and her husbund obeyed.

upstairs two steps at a time after it.
"Hut thut isn't the right one Chris!
Would you have me wear a terra cotta

"rectus go where you have often prom

"As you like, but I warn you, Wini
fred, they are now the ancestral halls
of the Murphys, Stillivans, O'Tooles and
'Briens. The Schuylers haven't lived
there for fifty years, for when the mills
were built In Schuylertown the hands
took possession of all the waste land
anywhere about, and ended by swarm

to commit himself.
"Wasn't there ever a murder or buI

bloody crime, and somebody hanged?"
"No Schuyler was ever hanged that I

richly deserve It. Concerning legends,

"Ah, my blood is already commenc
ing to congeal," said Winifred, comfort
ably settling back.
"Old Syrena lived and died in the
house where we are going. She must
have been an uncomfortable person by
all accounts. Her neighbors each side
of her had to give up tying their cat
tle in the stulls. because by her magic
power they became unloosed as fust
as the farmers tied them. Once she
was far away from home and found it
needful to return to get a piece of
cloth t-he had left behind her. She
retraced her steps and was gone only a
few minutes, bringing the cloth. An-
alter time some boys near the Schuy
ler house treed a squirrel, the largeiit
they had ever seen. They shot at It
a number of times, but failed to hit It
Finally they left It and were going
away, when It ran down out of the
tree and turned into a large striped cat.
The cut ran before them and they be-
ssuii to pelt it with stones, but the
s'oiies iimde no more impression on
the Oat than they did on the squirrel,

into the Schuyler house, and inimedl

lorm or both squirrel and cat.
."Dear old Syrena!" murmured Wlnl
"But that isn't all about Syrena. She
might have lived In ease and comfort,
but she -wouldn't. She owned farms
( and let them, but. never would collect
Iter rents or any other bills, and when
people called to pay her, she would
not let them Into the house, or she would
throw the money out of the door. Of
course she lived ukme; witches al
ways do, you know, except for cats"-
"And squirrels," amended Winifred,
"And a person going to see her one
cold day found her starved, frozen and
dying. The neighbors came to care for
her, and she died that night, but in
the midst of a terrible racket. Loud
voices und footsteps were heard, shouts
in the woods near by and echoeH of
horses galloping, and in the house
dishes rattled, bells rang, the tongs

to Damans, however. Soon the ser

themselves, and it coming to the ears
of the mistress, she summoned them to

nights and the living feared to go for
water. Some had seen her dancing
along the ridge-pole of the house:others
had not seen her. but had heard her
fumlllur double shuffle rapping over the
oaken floor, and her loud, rapid giggle
night after night.
"Those who saw her said she was a
most unpleasant person to meet sud

one's conscience wasn't quite easy
Her garments dripped, her eyes gog
gled and Tolled, her complexion was
ashy purple, and her incessant dancing
was accompanied by threatening and
beckoning gestures. Mme. '.Schuyler
said she didn't believe a word of it, but
nevertheless she took to burning night
lights and had a servant sleep in her
room. One day Bhe took a water pitcher

it was rumored that the mulatto's light

little later Schuyler dug a new well and
tilled up the old one, to destroy the
superstition of Dancing Damuris."
"That was most unkind, I'm sure,
when we meet with so few really relia
ble haunted places," breathed Winifred
"And here is the house." said Christo
pher, drawing rein suddenly.
It had Indeed been u fair mansion
of yore. It was large. It was lofty,
many-windowed, and with ample wings
extending to the sides and rear. The
front entrance was still Imposing, for
the great door swinging open to admit
its many occupants, showed a deep hall
with oaken beams and a wide and wind
ing staircase with hollow steps, which
once trod by belles and beaux in the
oldeti time now re-echoed to the heavy
tread of the weary mill hand or his
hard-working wife. At this time of
day the place swarmed with children,
some of whom bloomed with a beauty
not exceeded by any Schuyler of them
"Will you get out and go through the
house?" asked Christopher.
"X no, I think not;" fulntly answered
Winifred. "It would destroy my Ideal.

ndlgnantly. "Wasn't there ever a hid

freshed by the interlude, "my grand

whereabouts of the money he failed to

perhaps he had kept It secret so long he
could not bear to part with It. He died

from the manuscript he was attempt
