"That Is the reason they keep It
closed tightly," shuddered Esther,
and Just then some one rapped softly
on her dour.
"Aunt 1'V : :," thought Esther,, "Sha

Cnrow had never believed In ghosts
until the mystery of the haunted room
came to confound nil her past the
ories. The next day Esther said nothing
of the strange sounds she had heard,
although one of the paying guests, a
young artist who was painting the
lovely Long Island shore, tulUrd a
great deal about a sleepless night due
to the moaning of the wind. v
That thiv Esther aceouuuinlrd Pel-
ham on his tramp through the woods,
hut they did not
talk about ghosts,
Esther was not sure whether she real
lv cured for John Pelhiim: she had
met him last year for the first time

hud brought a most disturbing flutter
to her carefree heart.

of sleep, puf'ng o'i dre; ing ovn and

sill and walked around the corner of
the house to study the closely shut
tered east window. A slight sound
warned I cr u In. k u;i and she saw
John IV!'.i:ru slllln;: n" the slojw; of

' "Oh, what Is It?" he asked, sawing

"How clever!" admired Esther, and S
she was still admlrlnc when Miss )
Cnrow came, scandalized, and saw the
ghost really laid. That night while I
