V' them, to J
Homer was ashamed of
himself, he was afraid his nerves were
unsteady, and resolved! to test them.
He. knew a way, to, tost tbem ' He
knew a way to do it. t : I h
Near the place at which
staging, an English cpuntrv house,
were lie iuins Vf ihl Jblder part of a
castle said to have , beep built in the
tune of the Crusades. The whole cas
tle jwas at ; presen t j uninhabited,
but the part which hadl been allowed
to fall into - hopeless decay was ' the
width of the courtyard !a way from the
rest of the house. Probably it had
ouce been connected with it by build
ings which had formed! three sides of
a hollow square, but if so it had been
left out in the cliaiiges knadeat differ
ent times, and now it was roofless, the
walls were crumbled, and the under
ground portion was all that made any
pretense to a habitation, and offered a.
suitable home to the unearthly beings
who were said to roam in it; for a
dampness covered all the stones and
the air had a deadly chill. But these
facts seemed conclusions from the na
ture of things rather thau the results
of observationi for Homer could not
find anybody who bad explored it. .
Ghosts ought really to be forgiven
a good many faults, because they are,
in general, so unselfish about select
ing homes nobody else wants.
- That evening, as Ashton connected
the reports of the place itself with sto
ries of sights and sounds around it, he
found himself yielding so much to
the influence of gossip that be deter
mined" to shake off the weakness and
to try .'what stuff he was made of. He
would'stand in 'those haunted halls
and summon the ghosts and see what
would happen. He knew well enougl
that it would be nothing. -
. n: f . jm 1 11 1 . 1 . . t
au ne aiu not ieiL ins pian to tne
others; he said merely 'that he was go
ing for a walk to . blow away this
ghostly - atmosphere by a little fresh
air. No-body .volunteered to accom
pany him, night' had never been more
distasteful to them al. !? They only

whom the son of the house bad become

and-H-must be confessed that at the
end of a week they bad come to have
a good opinion of that country, i
t As Homer-walked on rapidly he
saw an occasional star in the sky, but
it seemed as if he never could get out
of the shadow of the trees, there; were
so many of tbeml?; ( '
He soon came to the ruin, a tnile

gan to descend the long flight of steps
leading into the cororaors and rooms

and silence which had beenrowingi
-Jreached its height, He j
tried to utter- his challenge, but his I'
dr ' iipswou Id give forth 110 sound,'
an abyss of night seemed to swallow
hira up. ,
Suddenly: he fancied he heard a
movement, he thought that something
like- palpable blackness .flitted about
him. , He turned to fly and took a
few hurried steps, in the direction-of
the entrance.' Then he stopped.' , It
was 110 ghostly presence that arrested
him, but the; iron baud of his resolu
tion ; be had come here to do a cer
tain thing and, was not to be cowed
by a; feeling of which he would he
ashamed, to own to himself in the day
light. He faced about and went for
ward quickly a few steps.
"If there is any ghost let him now
appear,"he called loudly.
' The dreary walls answered his cr
with a dull reverberation.
With arms folded lie stood a mo
ment the hardest thing of all to do
awaiting results. If there had not
been a roar in his ears, if the beating
of his heart had not made even his
vision unsteady, he would have said
that he heard subdued laughter, or
moaning, it was impossible to tell
which as the sound rolled toward him
from the hollow i sides, and that he
saw something like a whiteness in the
distance, while a sense of presence
made him cold with horror.
He bad done all he had resolved to
do and was free now to get out of this
dreadful place. He hurried toward
the entrance; urged on by the unrea
soning sense of pursuit that comes
over one when he turns his back up
on danger. All at once he lost his
footing and Jay at full length on the
slippery floor; -the shock, however,
only jarred and bewildered him. As
be put out his hands to rise he touch
ed something from -which ho drew
back instantly with a stifled exclama
tion; he thought it must be one of
the reptilesiikely to be crawling in
this den. But he recollected that it
'was small and hard, perhaps it was a
curious stone which would; prove his
night's excursion if the strangers. he
was with should be tempted to doubt
it. , After ajlittle groping he found it
again: it felt like a stone covered
with slimy moisture," and putting it
into bis pocket he made his way out
of the ruins las Jbest he could.
" When he returned to the house his
( . i ' -
friend was alone waiting for him,
and , sleepy, as Homer could see,
cousequeutly a trine annoyed at be
ing kept up so late. The guest said
nothing that night of where he ; had
" In his room he took out the stone.
It was not a pebble or a piece of the
-pavement, as be had supposed, but an
oval of grayish lava that had ouce
been a brooch or part of a bracelet.
As hej cleaned it with his penknife and
pocket handkerchief he saw that the
work upon it was beautiful ; it was a
figureof Minerva, the very folds iu
her tuuic carefully cut, and as he'saw

tracery of carving on her helmet and

' Killing- of a Convict.
I Yesterday morning about 10 o'clock,
Nat Hill and Rufus Holesclaw, col-1
ored, members of a gang of convicts
employed near the North Carolina
Railroad bridge, south of the city, at
tempted to make their escape. When
called on to halt, Holesclaw stopped,
but Hill ran at his best speed. A
guard, whose name is Johnston, fired
on him and killed him at the first
shot, the ball passing entirely through
his body just under the left shoulder
blade, and probably striking the heart.
He died as soon a3 be was bit.
Hill was a negro, aged 27 years,
and was from New Hanover county.
His sentence! was for six years, bis
crime being larceny. He was placed
in the'penitcntiary in February last.
It was' learned yesterday by the au
thorities that Hill had told some of
the other convicts that he had made
up his miud to escape, and that if he
was overtaken outside the walls he
would either gi t away or be killed.
