Far away back in the days of early
childhood I remember being gazed upon
in a curious manner, and hearing the re
mark ilia suppressed tone, "Poor child!
she has a nose!" Whether it was ex
pected of me to have been born without
this appendage I couldn't exactly under
stand; especially as in looking around
upon the circle of my friends and ac•
guaintances I saw that they were all well
provided in this respect.
Vague hints and mysterious remarks
upon this unfortunate .featuro thicw
sort of shade, over my early years, and
the first mortification that I ever experi
enced arose from the same cause.
I was then at the sensitive age of elev
en years, and at a child's party a
boy, whom I had distinguished by call-,
ing him up to extricate me from "the
well," imprinted a kiss upon the end of
my nose amid the tittering of his com
panions. A quick, angry flush shot
through me, and from that time forth
the unpleasant consciousthat I had
indeed ''a nose" never left me.
Why a machine for the compression
of extensive noses should not be put into
practical operation L was at a loss to con
ceive, and that it should one of these
days be attempted 1 was fully determined.
When, therefore, I read Miss Bremer's
c , Home," it was the disappointing over
throw of a lung cherished plan. I pur
sued the history of Petrea Frank, read
the failure of her admirably arranged
plan fur reducing the size of her nose,
and went off and cried myself to sleep in
a paroxysm of despair.
;The nose was a never ending source of
amusement to a family of cousins, who
gave me no peace of my life. There
were five of them—all girls, all handsome
and full of life and spirits. I was very
fond of them, and i believe they were of,
me but"they never would restrain their
jokes at my expense. Poor things'
They were motherless; and if they some
times lacked the refinement and sensi
tiveness orillose more nvored, r was not
disposed to be unrorgiving.

at young ladyhood, were iu a fair way
of being spoiled with adulation. They

there was always a IMlnner of " Who is
she ?" Emma was it piquant-little thing,
pith the look of a ripe peach; her cheek
was so downy, with the rich color glow
jug through the olive tint. •
Matilda was my especial favorite; and'
I, who had always been an ardent admir
er of beauty, would often gaze upon her
in a kind of wistful rapture. Bright,
laughing and lovely, she was seldom ever
still for two consecutive moments. 1 have
watched her dip her head in a basin of
water, and the rich, dark hair, with a
tinge of auburn, would emerge one drip
ping mass of curls, which she tossed about
with a quiet contempt of conscious beau
ty. Those large, laughing, brown eyes
were always sparkling with merriment;
her mouth was the nearest approach to a
ripe cherry that 1 have ever seen, and
her nose was just sufficiently retrousse to
to give an expression of archness to the
face. Add to this the exquisitely fair
complexion that accompanies auburn hair

Uncle Althorpe lived at some distance

I was not long in making preparation;

"That's a sensible girl"•=' said my un

considering this, fur he said very little

I kept, an eager look-out for a
glimpse of the house; but it was nearly
night when we arrived at the station, and
then my uncle's carriage conveyed us to
l'inehurst, a distance of two or three
The carriage stopped at an ancient
gateway, and the first sight of the place
filled me with ecstacy. The house was
entirely out of sight, hidden by the trees,
and as we approached it through a noble
avenue I gloried in the intense r,:tire

we seemed shut in from the world ; and
the broad walks, the sloping lawn, and
the aristocratic silence, were all exactly
to my taste. I had a passion for mystery,
and my uncle's summer residence was

" Well ! exclaimed Emma, "yem.'ve

ish, when Uncle Althorpe turned me
gravely round, and surveying me from
head to foot, remarked, ' , Stature, average

" Do what ?"
" Thnt remains to be seen," said Un

his paper and was heard no more that.
We girls sat and talked until twelve,
and by that time I had become pretty
well acquainted with the history of Pine

of society. But the family had all died
out, with the exception of an elderly
maiden lady, who lived there alone in
her grandeur until she adopted a nephew,
the only child of a sister who had made
what the world calls a mesalliance,
This :ilia Eleanor Pyott was the talk
of all the country round, and every one
had something to say about her stately
bearing, which they pronounced exactly
that of an old dowager duchess. Every
fibre of her heart seemed twined about
the old place, and she refused to have
the slightest alteration or Improvement
made in it, The Pyotts for generations_
had dined in that dining-toot, slept in
those chambers, and held courtly recep
tions in those drawing-rooms; and as one
generation.of Pyotts went out and anoth
er generation came in, they followed ten
aciously in the ways of their ancestors.
I was speedily shown the portrait of
Miss Eleanor; a very grand old lady in
deed, with a low , b sharp _.nosh, deli Cate
complexion, and hair done up in old fash
ioned puffs. I was rather struck myself,
with,the likeness which I bore. to the
'portrait; but would not acknowledge"
this to my cousins., •
Mies' Pyott never walked beyond -the'
precincts of her ancestral mansion) when
she had occasion to go farther she rolled
arietocr.aocally along in an Old-fashioned
carriage,"driven by an ancient coachman,
who considered a quick pace decidedly
plebian. The old lady' looked like the
portrait of her ancestors descended from
its frame; rich, coffee colored lace orna
mented the heavy brdcadea in which she
attired herself, and she sported a muff
that would have extinguished ; any ordin
ary woman. •
But the story of Pyott Dunmere, her
nepheW, interested her most. From early
childhood he had played in these - broad
avenues; roamed through the wooded
pathS, and made th'ese empty chambers
resound with gleefursotes ; he had lis
tened with - deferential attention to
.lilcnor's long stories of this ami that an
cestor, and faithfully promised to keep, up

had ndright there, merely because she,
whos - d - lietiff - was set - erciestallitsg, him as
master of the old house, bad neglected
to commit her wishes in writing. It was
very bard I thought; and in spite of
Uncle Althropo's arguments, I persisted
in denouncing the injustim of the law.
Fortunately, however, for her nephew,
Miss Eleanor bad the'good sense to give
him an education calenlated to make him
depend upon his own resources.
'You can't think what a charming per:
son he is, "said Anna ,confidentially.
"We have never seen him; but we hear
he has lovely dark eyes, and such'a sweet
smile I—just the - style I like; and if he
succeeds in getting his property, we are
all going to set our caps at him."
Hence it was agreed that if he regained
the old house, he would also come into
possession of a lovely; wife4.4br . that any

Matilda and T occupied the same room,
and she amused herself relating to me all
the various alarms they had experienced,
with the benevolent intention of frighten
ing me. But 1 remained perfectly un
concerned; while my cousin involuntarily
trembled, and behaved like the .veritable
little coward she was.
Several times during the night was I
compelled to rise from the conch and ex
plore the apartment in ordeft,to allay her
tremors. Now it was the huge fireplace,
in which something was certainly moving

into the room—and next a mysterious
tapping on the window-pane had to be
explained. This somewhat•puzzled. me
at first; 'but T soon discovered that the
branches of the trees, which were very
near the window, were continually driven
by the wind against the glass, and thus
produced the perplexing noise.
Again and again, as I laughed at poor
Matilda, was 1 thankful for mot being a
coward ; and in the midst of these alarms
I could have explored tlre whole hottsc
alone with pa.fect security. •
I enjoyed life at Pinehurst, although
the girls pronounced it dull ;; and so en
raptured was I with the place, that in
in consequence of this and my resem
blance to the portrait, it became quite a
standing joke with my cousins•to call me
Miss Elenor Pyott. Now this was not
agreeable; I was very sensitive respecting
my nose, and Mira Elenor's certainly was
a little larger than mine. When, there
i;me, they unied 'nn , ,t.,) dun 14) (:).,1 b un

of the house, and arrange my hair in

The walled-up chamber, which was re
garded with a mixture of horror and cu
riosity, wassoon painted out to me. It
was in a sort of wing that joined on at
the extreme 'end of the mansion ; and
looked out upon the densest part of the
grounds. Being in the second story, a
narrow flight of stairs led up from the
outside to a low dour that led directly
into the room. This was never unfast•
cued, and the one window tightly board
ed up. I regarded this spot with longing
eye, and often proposed an exploration
of the haunted department; but this
Uncle Althrope decidedly opposed, alleg
ing that as he was only a temporary ten
ant he had no right to penetrate into
these carefully guarded recesses.
One day my cousins had been more
than usually aggravating upon the sub
ject of my resemblance to Miss Elenor
Tyott, and I retired to rest at night in no
very pleasant frame of mind. Matilda
was soon asleep, but I lay awake thinning
of the former occupants of the mansion,
and wonderin g if Pyott Dcnmore would
ever be restored to what I considered his
I was restless; and finally rose from
the bed, lighting a candle, proceeded to
view Miss Elenor's portrait. The more
I looked, the more I became convinced
that I did look like it; and the desire
came over me to attire myself in that
ancient dress and compare notes. Hilly
had caught a glimpse of some old•fash
ioned things in the back part of a clos
et, and thither. I accordingly repaired.
A faded dross of stiff'brocade, that had
evidently seen long service, soon replaced
my white wraper, and havirl,zrolled my
hair into puffs, a la Miss Elesueor,
donned a green caleche, and almost trent
, bled at my reflection in the glass.
I looked at the portrait again, to be
sure that it was really I and not the old
lady stopped from the frame; and then
unhesitatingly directed my steps towards
tho walled-up room. I determined to

was extremely embarrassing—alone there
at midnight; but instead of retracing
my steps, I stood spell bound, staring
at the occupant of • the mysterious room.
Presently ho turned and saw me. His

husky voice, "Am I dreaming ? Merciful

This unprovoked attack upon my much
injured feature quite exasperated me, and
without stopping to consider what I did,
I threw the paper in my hand at the
speaker and glided back to the closet.—
I thought that I heard a heavy fall ; but
now thoroughly alarmed at my own im
prudence, I hastened breathless and pant
ing to my own room.
My Cousin still slept; and divesting
myself of my masquerading attire, I sat
down and pondered over n-y singular ad
venture. As I had told my Uncle I did
not believe in ghosts, and the gentlemen
whom I encountered had given full evi
dence of being a living man, I fully be
lieved it to be Pyott Denmore ; though
how lie came there, and for what reason,
I could not tell. I had evidently impress
ed him with the conviction that he had
been visited by his Aunt Eleanor ; and
with a sort of mischievous glee, and a
little inward trembling, I rplired to bed,
wondering wbat would conic of it.
I half feared to go to the breakfast-ta
ble ; but nothing was said of the perform
ance of the night before ; Uncle AI thrope
looked' perfectly unconscious of the scene
that had been enacted, and I began
to breathe truly.
My cousins teased me during the day
for being so unusually silent ; but my
thoughts were wandering off to the met.

Uncle Althrope went to town every
morning, and returned at' night ; and al
ways on Iris appearance, he was besieged
with a host of questions respecting Pyritt
Dentriere's case. The usual reply was
that it was standing still, as everything
in law always does ; but on the evening
succeeding my promenade he made his ap
pearance with a countenance that was a
peret series of notes of exclamation:

" Something very like it," was the re

closely around him.

the walled-up room is not walled up at
all, but only boarded, and to one acquaint
ed with the locality it is very easy to ef
fect an entrance, unperceived, from the
outside. Knowing, he says, that it would
not interfere with the arrangnements of
the family, he has been accustomed to
spend hours in what is called the haunted
room ; and there he loved to sit, thinking
of the past, and devising means to prove
his lawful claim to the beloved house.—
Last night he discovered, in an ancient
secretary, some old letters written by his
mother to his aunt before ho was born ;
and losing all thoughts of the present., he
had been reading them fur at least an
hour, when ho suddenly heard a rustling
sound attracted his attention, and the fig
ure of his aunt Eleanor stood in the door
way. She seemed to gaze upon him in
quiringly, and her hand grasped a roll of
paper. But at the sound of the exclama
'nation, which he conld not suppress, she
immediately started, throwing the paper
towards him, vanished from his sight.—
He lost his consciousness for a time, and
when he recovered lie found himself ly
ing on the floor, where ho must have fall

of mind, it is impossible to persuade him
that he did not really see his aunt Elea

" Actually the • will," said my uncle,

At this outbreak, Hilly tenderly embraced
me, and they all declared their unbounded af

Mr. Denntore kindly insisted that my uncle
should occupy the mansion during she full
time for which he had engaged it; we were
therefore just as comfortable as before, with
the addition of a very agreeable visitor.
He had a habit of staring at me that was
by no means pleasant ; but ao his conversa

to anything flattering. lie often asked ques

one evening, just al sunset as I stood beneath

straying of late, Mr. Denmore suddenly ap
peared beside me

he asked, abruptly, fixing upon me what I
imagined to be a most penetrating gaze.
" No," I replied, without thinking; " that
is—yes," I stammered—" let me go, Mr. Den

" Where did you find the will I" he contin
ued, without heeding my request.
.In the pocket," I replied mechanically. I
felt that I was behaving like a fool, and
made a strange dfortio recover my dignity,
but I failed,.and burst into tears.
Mr. Denroore took my hand with respectful
tenderness and led me to a rustic seat that
"I owe you more, Miss Entwick," said he
"than I can over repay. I only desire to

contrive to permeate aunt—all save the ,

"Why, bow could I know you were there ?"
I replied, with some spirit; for I was quite
provoked at his absurdity.

unreasonableneass ; "hut I am most anxious
