EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
ANASTASIA'S GHOST
By H.E. Smith
"No wonder that you rave," I replied, with a mocking smile; "you are disappointed of your inheritance." At that moment the wind gave a fearful shriek outside, and I thought of Anastasia. "Are you not afraid to marry again?" Charlie inquired, maliciously. "You remember the warming?" "Nonsense!" I answered; "It will take something more than a ghost to frighten me out of this marriage."
I had scarcely finished speaking, when there came a gust of wind, and a crashing of glass, and the storm actually swept into the room. We glanced around us in dismay. The boughs of a large elm tree that stood in front of the house had fallen against the window.
Charlie gave me a peculiar look as I cowered over the fire, and then barred the widow in such a manner as to keep out the rain. A strange gloom enveloped us both, and we did not return again to the subject we had been discussing. Our conversation was fitful, and it seemed a relief when we separated at bed-time.
There is no use in denying that I was troubled a little with superstitious fears, I peered round anxiously into every corner of the room before retiring, but found no sign of any mysterious visitant. I had such a fear of the darkness, however, that I left the candle burning. The fury of the storm had not abated, and I lay awake some time listening to the wind. At last, however, I fell into an uneasy slumber. How long I had slept I know not, when I was awakened by an icy touch upon my forehead.
I started up, with a thrill of apprehension. The light emitted a faint, sepulchral gleam. Oh horror! What was that I saw? A figure, robed in white, came gliding toward me from the foot of the bed. The face was hidden from my view, but I knew from the form that it was the ghost of Anastasia.
