EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
ANASTASIA'S GHOST
By H. E. Smith
"Oh, Mr. Raymond," she answered in confusion, "Charlie has asked me to be his wife." The rascal! No wonder that he remained with her such a long time that morning; no wonder that he boasted of the satisfactory manner in which everything had been explained. "The impudent fellow!" I muttered, impatiently. "What did you answer, child? Do you love him?" Low and soft the answer came;
"Yes."
The heart of a woman is a mystery that I cannot fathom. I was certainly outwitted by my nephew. He might have been afraid, however, that my conscience would reproach me if Katie showed her disappointment. I have little doubt that she loved me far better than she would confess.
Ah, well! They were married in due time, and we are all living together. The dear children do everything they can to add to my happiness.
Kathie is still a beautiful woman, and Charlie is the staff of my old age.  I never saw the ghost again. In fact, I have good reason to think the mysterious visitant was a certain graceless nephew of mine, who had fallen in love with Katie. Of course I forgave the deception long ago, as it saved me from a terrible mistake.
I am much happier, probably, than if I had married the young girl whose heart belonged to another. I am not certain, however, that she did not accept Charlie from pique at my rejection; anyway, he has made her a good husband.
