whole burying ground seemed alive and
glistening willi a thousand small bluish
lights, which appeared to creep in and
out of the different graves, as if tho de

ramble. 1 stood petrified, not knowing
what to make of it, at tho same time ex
periencing a feeling of horror which sud

Just at tin moment the moon, which
had hitherto lieen more or less obscured
by a moving panorama of passing clouds,
came, us it would seem, to my assist

the benelii of her companionship. And
now appeared tho most startling phe
nomenon of all a phenomenon which
caused my hair to stand on end with
fright, a cold numbness of horror para
lyzing me in every limb, for, advancing
up tho road directly opposite to me,
camo a funeral train, the coffin borne
along with a measured tread, covered
with an imiuenso black pall which flut
tered up in tho midnight wind.
At first I thought 1 must surely lie
dreaming, and thereupon pinched myself
in tho arm to ascertain if this wero real

As tho coflin was borne through this

awful lights added considerably to the
ghastliness of the scene us they floated
over the collin and heads of the mourn
