A Practical Joke and Its Serloua
Little Charlie Bird was left an orphan
in the village of Silva at a very tender
age. Pitying the poor boy's homeless,
friendless condition, bluff, childless Mr.
Flail took him home and cared for him
in his kind, though somewhat rough,
wav. until he had reached his fifteenth
Unlike most of the Silva boys, Charlie
was gentle, timid and trusting, and
implicitly believed almost everything
he was told. Naturally superstitious,
his sensitive nature was often imposed
upon by thoughtless people, who de
lighted to tell him blood-curdling ghost
stories until he trembled to be left by
himself, even in the daytime. As for
going out alone in the evening, to him
it was like facing a certain and horrible
Rough Mr. Hal), although k'.nd to
Charlie in his way, had no p:.t»enee
with such foolishness, as he called it
So it sometimes happened that he sent
him to the neighbors' on errandi after
night had fallen, little thinking of the
terrors tli*t the timid child conjured up
on these evening missions.
liright and early one morning Mr.
Ilall. being in want of household sup
plier. and thinking lie could purchase to
hotter advantage somewhere besides at
the little corner grocery, harnessed his
horse and set out for Millside, a large
town some twenty miles away. He ar
rived there safely, bought the needed
articles, and then set out on his return.
But the way was long, the load heavy
and the horse slow; and it was quite
dark before he got through the "Seven
Mile woods" which lay between the
two villages. When nearly through
theiti, a sudden snap and lurching of
the wagon told him that a spring had
1 broken; and quite a number of pack
ages were thrown off into tha ditch by
the side of the road.
Mr. Hall alighted, and after hunting
for soino time succeeded in Coding a
stout stake; this he laid across the ax
les under the wagon-body t" support it.
Then he loaded up the scattered bundles
again and once more set out for home,
where lie arrived in due season without
further mishap.
After caring for his horse and eating
his supper, Mr. Ilale proceeded to bring
in his purchases, with Charlie's assist
ance. A large bundle of calico was
found to be missing.
"1 must hare lost it where I broke
down," said Mr. HalL "Go look after
it, Charlie. lam too tired and it may
not be there in the morning. 1 think
you will And it in the ditch by the big
rock in the edge of the woods."
Charlie began to make some excuse,
but Mr Hull interrupted him somewhat
"Go along at once. It is time this
foolishness and fright were done with.
The moon is up and shining brightly
now, so you can easily find it. Off
with you!"
Thus commanded, Charlie set off on
his mission, but the timid lad's heart
was beating like a triphammer. He
had not got out of the village when he
heard a voice behind calling him:
"Hello, Charlie! Where are you going
this fine evening?"
Looking around he saw Ches Flint, a
boy about his own age and one who
had always taken great delight in
frightening him, coming along the
street a short distance away:
•'Up to the big rock in the woods
after a bundle which Mr. Hall lost," re
plied Charlie, as he stopped and waited
for him to come up. "Go with me,
won't you?"
"I'll go part way, but I don't dare
pass the old graveyard on the cliff,"
said Ches, lowering his voice, and glanc
ing mysteriously around him.
"The cliff" was a steep, rugged preci
pice that overhung the sea at high wa
ter and a narrow strip of bowlder
strewn beach when the tide was low.
The Millside road ran along at a dis
tance from its edge, and the old grave
yard was just opposite. The sevon
mile woods began a quarter of a mile
further on.
"Why not?" asked Charlie, quickly.
"Oh! there was a murdered man
buried there a good many years ago,
and he can't rest easy in his grave be
cause his murderer was never pun
ished. He often comes out nights,
dressed in a loDg, white shroud, and
btands by the side of the road and
groans. Lots of people have seen him,
hut they don't like to tell of it for fear
of being laughed at. I wouldn't go by
that graveyard at night for all tlie
money in Silva."
< harlie was almost overcome by ter
ror at this ghostly tale, but, coax as he
would, Ches could not be persuaded to
go the whole distance with him- At
last lie agreed to go nearly to the old
cemetery and wait there until Charlie
got safely by it.
They soon came in sight of the white
and ghostly tombstones, aad then he
stopped and would go no farther.
Charlie begged and prayed him to go
on, for he dared not return to Mr. Hall
w : thout the bundle, but Ches was Im
Finally, mustering all his courage,
Charlie darted off toward the haunted
•pot. Fear lent wings to his feet and
he soou passed the graveyard In safety
aud disappeared around a bend in the
As soon as he was out of sight, Ches
turned and ran for home as fast as his
feet would carry him. Knowiug his
parents would not approve of the
scheme he had formed, lie crept softly
around the house into the back-yard
where the week's washing still hung.
Hastily snatching a licet from the linn

Arrived there, he quickly wrapped
himself up from head to foot. Tlieu Ue

and hastily called out for him to come
back, as it was only a joke; but the boy
never heard him and kept cm in his un
reasoning, headlong flight. Still cling
ing to the sheet, Ches
started in swift pursuit; but, goaded on
by his terror, Charlie kept his distance.
"For heaven's sake stop, or youll be
over the cliff!" sereamcd Ches. Charlie
heard the wild, unnatural cry, but ho
did uot comprehend its meaning. Turn
ing his head he threw one hasty, terror
stricken glance over his shoulder.

a single glimpse of his ghastly face

nowhere in sight.
"Washed away and swallowed up by

Dazed and stunned by the awful end
ing of his thoughtless prank, and with
a bitter but unavailing remorse in his
heart, he at length crept homeward,
still carrying the sheet which he had
unwittingly retained throughout the
whole terrible race. Silently he re
placed the fatal linen upon the line,
then went into the house and passed
directly to bis room lest the family
should notice his ghastly looks and
question him as to the cause.
lie threw himself upon his bed. but
not to sleep. The picture of a white,
terrified face sinking down, down,
down to a grave in the rippling, shining
water was ever before him; and slum
ber fled from his uneasy pillow.

ago so full of life and vigor, and now

Then that pale, lifeless face, drifting
on the shining, shimmering water, and
settling slowly down into its black
depths, would pass before the eyes of
his imagination. Ches groaned, and
shook as if with an ague fit
All that long, dark, horrible night he
lay and wept in sleepless agony, tor
mented by his guilty thoughts and ter
rible imaginings. Trembling with
weakness and burning with fever aud
excitement, he arose from his couch at
"break of day. His parents questioned
him anxiously, alarmed by his looks
and actions, but he would only answer
that he was tired and felt unwelL
Scarcely a mouthful of food passed his
lips, and that he crowded down because
the other members of the family were
watching him, and not because he
wished for it.
Early in the day the tidings came
that Charlie Bird bad run away. Mr.
Hall had told him to go np to the big
rock for a bundle the night before and
he had objected. lie had been com
pelled to go and had never returned.
The bundle had been found in the road
by the old graveyard, but of the boy
there was not a single trace. Ches
groaned at the first mention of Char
lie's name, but all were listening
breathlessly to the strange intelligence
and no one noticed it.
Mr. Hall would not try to find him,
so the neighbors said. "If he wanted
to leave those who had done so much
for him, in that ungrateful manner,
why, let him." And so the matter
I All day long Ches kept by himself as
much as possible, eating little and tor
mented by the terrible secret that was
! struggling to burst forth and make
' itself known to the whole world liut
lie must keep it in. So he passed all
that long, terrible day and another
. night of sleepless grief and remorse.
' The second morning Ches arose look
ing but the ghost of the merry, light
hearted boy that he had been only two
days before. His eyes were wild and
. bloodshot, his face haggard and ghastly
! one minute and the next burning with
the hectic flush of fever. He spoke In
coherently, trembled when he walked,
and his whole appearance was more
like that of an Insane person thau one
in his right mind. His parents were
much alarmed about him, for his condi
tion grew worse with every hour.
i And so the day wore on. Darkness at
last settled down upon the landscai>c,
but Ches was still brooding over the
horror hidden In his breast. A uiur
i derer! Voices in the air seemed to
j whisper the appalling word in endless
reiteration, and his brain seemed on fire.
I About nine o'clock in the evening
Ches crept out of the window of hi*
| room, to which he had retired some
time before, and hurried off through the
darkness. A strange, uncontrollable
impulse to visit the scene of the fatal
accident hod taken possession of hlxn,
and was driving him on. He walked
rapidly up the Millside road as far as
the old graveyard, paused there, and
looked fixedly at the edge of the cliff,
dreading yet desiring to go on to the
brink of the precipice from which
Charlie Bird had fallen to his doom.
As he stood there, unable to go for
ward or to return, a noise at his right
side startled him and caused him to
turn his head. Horror of horrors!
Not ten steps away from him, with
face gleamiug white and ghastly iu the
light of the rising moon, stood the
shadowy figure of Charlie bird. Ches
uttered a single wild pierciug cry and
fell senseless to the earth.
When he came to himbclf again ho
was lying in bed in a darkened room at
home, while his mother was moving
about with a worn and anxious face.
For a moment Ches looked around In
wonder; then the memory of that awful
night came back to him, and he cried
out in a voice so changed and feeble
that he could scarcely believe it was
his own: "Great Heavens! A mur
His mother stepped quickly to the
door and spoke to some one outside, and
a figure entered and approached hit*
bedside. It was Charlie llird, alive and
with the hue of health upou his face.
Ches gave one look and fainted.
As soon as lie became strong enough
—for he had been at death's door for
weeks with a brain fever—the whole
utory was told to him. When Charlie
heard Ches' wild cry behind him, he
gave one quick glance over his
shoulder and lieheld the white-robed
apparition In hot pursuit. Ue made a
single wild bound forward, aud felt

that grew upon the edge of the preci

while the octan rippled on the shore
more than forty feet beneath him
Jt was but a minute's work to clamber
back to the top of the cliff, but in that
minute C'lies had started on his way to
the shore. Charlie saw his white, re
treating form, and still nearly Insane
with terror, he turned and resumed
his headlong flight in the opposite
direction. Without knowing or caring
whither he went, so long an he es
caped the specter that he fancied was
pursuing him, ha plunged deep into
the shadowy recesses of the Seveu Mile
Wbcu his terror at last began to sub
side, Charlie discovered that he was ut
terly and hopelessly bewildered All
uight long he wandered about, trying to
find his way out of th« dark and silent
forest, but in vain-

At last, In the evening of the second
day, he suddenly came out into a beaten
road. With a thrill of jojr he recog
nized it as the one leatliug frutn Silva
to Mill side, und he eagerly set out upon
tbe homeward way, encountering Ches
by the old graveyard When he fell in
a swoon, Charlie had been obliged to go
for Mr. Flint in order to get him back
Ches soon came out of his fainting
fit, but he was delirious from brain
fever brought on by the mental agony
that be had endured and the shock of
seeing Charlie's ghost, as he supposed;
and for weeks he fought a terrible bat
tle with death. Sometimes he would
scream for Charlie, and then he would
call himself his murderer and beg them
not to hang him.
Charlie stood by the sick-bed
and day, assisting Mr. and Mrs. i'.int
and caring for Ches like a brother; but
for a long time his life was despaired
of. The cruel fever burned and wasted
his strength and vitality till he was
weaker than a little child. At last he
came to himself, as has already been
From the moment that the groat
weight was lifted from his miud, Ches
improved rapidly. Lie soon regained
his health and strength, but never aft
erward did he attempt to frighten any
one for sport, or allow other? to do so
jif he could hinder it. Charlie too, al

foolish and unreasoning cowardice dur
