A HAUNTED FROLIC.
(Continued from last week.)
"Please now Ferae tell us all about
it. We are going to be very quiet.",
And Ferne, who was Just as impa
tient, to tell, as they were to hear,
turned toward them excitedly, with
lips slightly parted and her black eyes
shining. ' '
"You know we planned to come out
here at this old place for our party
this year, and I just got to thinking
-how terribly cold it would be after
the long ride and how nice It would be
if 1 could come on ahead and have
things nice and warm for you. . So
aMilly and I got in our Blelgh and came
out this afternoon and fixed ft all up
like this. We found the holly; out
hero. You know they say this plac
4a haunted," she added in a aepulcharl
tone. "t '. .. .
' Soon they were up , aa running
around the old house and having a
lery good time. " - -
After eating 'the lunch - they bad
brought with them they sat down' by
the fire to rest for a few minutes,
"Let's tell ghost stories," Ferne
.suggested from her favorite seat', on
Some agreed readily, but others
shuddered in fear at the very idea.
"No! No! It's bad enough Just to
be here In this old bouse without, tell
ing any ghost storie'a.7 ohp cried. ' :

go Ferne decided pleasantly that

"But," she said, ,"lets all think a
'minute of something that would be
nice to do." ' 4 ;
So they huddled closer about ' the
fire and all remained quiet, thinking
of something to do. 1 -
The glow of the fire sent a soft
light In the front part of the (room
hut the back was dark. The moon
had disappeared behind a hank' of
clouds and no light came In from the
windows except that from the enow.
When the fire flickered or popped It
would send twjsted. fantastical shad
ows dancing In the back of the room
and when one looked around they saw
a queer face looking at them (snd
Jumped in a startled manner, then
sheepishly remembered the pictures
they had seen n the wall earlier in
the evening. j
Elma loaned forward In her chair
and said In a low tone, "Do you girl
hear a queer noise upstairs?"
All listened attentively for a few
minutes with mingled expressions of
anxiety, fear and amusement depicted
on their faces. Hut none of them
could hear anything and they teased
Elma about it laughingly and told ber
that It was Just ber imagination.
Elm sat back in' her chair very
much disturbed and while the other
girls talked on In low tones she turned
her head towards the hall and list
ened. Again aba heard the queer
noise and started to speak but look'
Ing around at the laughing faces de
elded they maybe It was her Imagina
tion and she would, not any anything
But in spite of ttits she could not
keep from listening and again she
heard the noise. Then with a decided
look on her face leaned over again
and sakl. "Girls. I do hear a queer
noise and It frightens me. There's no
telling what or who Is In thla big old
house and it isn't safe for us to be
here without an older person. Listen
awhile and see if you can't hear some;
thing queer. It's from upstalds."
The girls, seeing how serious Elma
was. listened patiently.
Then suddenly from above they
heard a faint scratching sound and
two deep groans which sounded very
much like some one was trying to
talk but had their mouth all muffled
up and couldn't. v.
They sat in terror, looking from one
to theo ther.
"What Who? they wondered.
One of the girls roue from her chair
and whispered. "I-et'a ro home now
before it comes down stairs." j
The girls all Jumped up from their
chairs and went over to their wraps.
.starting to put them on. Fern stood
with her cost half way on for several
seconds, then taking it off and throw
ing It down said. 'Nonsense! If his
mouth Is all purred up his feet and
hands are probably tied or he would I
have thnt stuff out of his mouth, or
walk down'here and have us take It l
out. Ami If he Is all tied up he can't j
do us any harm, or If its someone Jut-t j
trying to scare us then lie don't mean ,
us any real harm and there's no sense
in us being afraid." !
nut they all appeared very much
afraid In spite of this piece of logic,
-snd none of them made nny move to
tske their wraps off although they
stopped to listen to Kern.
"I think Fern is right." Elma said
thoughtfully, "and I'm with her what--ever
"I. too." and "I. too." spoke up sev
ral other girls and taking heir wraps
off threw them hack on the chair.
Then they alt galhered arountl Ft'rn
to hear what they were to do. As they
stood there they heard a faint tap.

was coming from the roof. A dull

swung back to ghosts. What could
possibly make such a nolne as that

With horrified eyes they gazed
about them on the doorway, expect

at the girls and all their eyes turned
.on her watching every movement. She
was the strongest In. the group, bad
the quickest and fiercest temper, the
most courage, and the warmest, big

blng hold of the portlers, gave them a
quick Jerk., pulling them aside. But
only the dark empty hall rewarded the
effort. No ghost stood there to con

fteeked cautiously n round the corner
then tiptoed backwards to the glrjii
her eyes on the doorway.
