1 hmi nothing particular to do, so I
sent word round to Dick that I should
turn up. having first mado sure that
Teddy I'lJricu, whose studio wan in the
aiiie block, would go also. Quiller we
Itnew of old, us all the world knew him
a man who had seen ever3'thing, done
verything, b "en everywhere and these
ccnsioiial visits of liis were a perpetual
terror to Graves. WI13 he paid them we
never knew. There) was a kind of tra
ditioual friendship letweeii the families
certainlv, but Quiller was a man who
scoffed at tradition. lie was in every
way out of sympathy with a set of ardent
and impecuniona painters. As journal
ist, as traveler, as man of the world, he
had outlived his enthusiasms. Life con
tained no new experiences, no surprises
for him. It was only a monotonous
round of the known and the expected.
Dick Graves, who usually shone as a
host, was not at his best that evening.
He was nervous at first, and rather
silent, leaving the burden of talk to
Teddy and myself; and we had the ill
luck as the punch circulated to light on
a vein of humorous stories, at which we
laughed consumedly ourselves without
evoking even a Binile from the guest of
"Will you fellows look over my Cornish
sketches," said Graves, suddenly jump
ing up in desperation. "I think there
are some you have not seen" and he be

CJuiller resumed his se-.it, and sat, half
absently, half contemptuously, watching
us as wo turned over the paintings
possibly ho was amused by our jargon
of "tone" and "quality," and the rest.
At lengtu 1 picKeu up irom tne neap a
painting that caught my eye, and propped
it on the easel near the lamp. It was
quite unlike Graves' usual work, and 1
stood looking at it for a moment, not
quite knowing whv I did ko. It was the
head of a young woman, pale and slight
ly worn. She was leaning a little for
ward, looking out of the picture, her
mouth parted by a slight, tremulous
smile, and in her eyes a look that was a
strange mingling of emotions, as if a
new hope and happiness had come into a
life of sorrow a look half wistful, half
xnltant. I turned to sp-ak to Graves
nxl saw that Quiller had got up, and
was standing gazing at the picture with
1 look of fascination or of fear. Here at
a-t was something that interested him.
Where did you get that?"' he asked.
'What do you think of it?" said
t raves, slowly.
It's a good head," said Teddy
"it's a wonderful model." said I.
"A face to haunt one." said Quiller.

We settled ourselves by the fire with
our pipes, and Dick began his story in a
manner, tor mm, so unusually grave
and impressive that it seemed to leave
m 1 room for doubt as to his perfect good
faith in the matter.
"I went into Cornwall, as jou know,
at tho end of the summer, and after
loafing round Newlyn for a while I
went to the south coast to try and find
-. me place that had been less painted.
1 stayed a few days at Polpeiro, but it
was all so much like the smaller exhib
it ions in town that I could not stand it,
.i'i l I finally landed at ," naming
a small seaport town "where there
were no painters and not many visitors.
L stayed at the 'Ship Inn,' and looked
around for some place to hang up my
"After some inquiries I found a small
cottage which had been empty for some
time, but wluch had evidently been used
as a studio, for there was a wall knocked
out at one side and a good sized room
added, with a high north light. On the
south, the kitchen and 'parlor,' which
ojened one into the other, had a view of
the loveliest little harbor in the world.
The place was just what I wanted, and
the rent w.xs absurd only 10 a year; so
I took it for ix months on the under
standing I was to keep it on if I chose. I
bought a few things to make the place
comfortable, and got an old woman to
l-x;k after it for me; but I livel most of
the time at the 'Ship inn.' and just at
first I spent very little time at tliestudio,
only taking in my canvases at night.
When October set in. cold and wet. I Had
to do some work indoors, and then it was
I Irt-gan to think thTe was something
qnvr about the plan'. day I had
lf n painting a young girl tnm the vil-
' lago, tnr granaaimghter or my ancient
, dame, and I was putting a few touches
to tho background, when 1 hoard a sound
close behind mo like a very gentle sigh.
I looked around quickly, but there was
no one in sight no one in the room, in
, fact. I went on painting with an uii-
comfortable feeling of something iniean-
ny, and in a few minutes tin- muiid was
repeated actually at my ear. 1 dropped
my lirush with the start I mad.-, and then
I went all through the house to see if anv
on- was in it. I knew that Annie and
h.-r grandmother had gone home, and I
t.'iotight I hoped that homo poor sou!
had cr.-pt in to -belter from the rain by
the kitceen lire. Well, there was not a
soul near the place. I locked up care
fully that night when I went back to the
inn. and in Use .solace of a ;;l.is 1 of grog
and a pi;i:r before I went to bed I almost
persuaded myself there was nothing in it.
"In the morning I had really forgotten
;t, 1 i';:;iry: but whea 1 got back to tho
iudio a curious tiling had happened.
!!i.;ht across the face in my picture was
1 couple of brush marks, such as you
might make if you were trying the tooth
.f a canvas, completely spoiling my work
f the day before. I called np Annie
-nd fier grandmother, and accused them
f p;-i.ag tricks. They were indignant
t th" j, a. ;;ud I finally had to apologize
.'or my suspicions. We searched the !
..oils-.- together, but could hud no means
by which any one could have entered,
ind at last I was obliged to conclude that
I must have done the damage myself
vhen 1 let my brushes fall. In a few
; vs. however, it became impossible to
::plain the thing by this or any other
lalural means; constantly my canvases
were tampered with, and I grew to have
;h' feeling that after twilight I was
never alone in the room; that -faint sigh
which had so startled me at first I came
to li.-ten for and expect, and I began at
last to clothe it with a personality, and
to wish I had some means of comforting
;he poor soul who had no ot her language
to express her despair. I did not tlrink
it was she who had defaced my canvases,
however, and I took to carrying my work
back with mo at night to the inn, where
the canvases were secure from inter
ference. "I suppose the thing wonld have ended
there but for an accident. There was a
race meeting in the town, and the 'ship'
was invaded by a low set of fellows, who
got drunk and made beasts of themselves
generally. The place became unbearable,
and I determined to camp in the studio
until they cleared out. Imadeupa big
r;re, got my old woman to leave me some
not water m the kettle, and with the
help of a rug and a pillow stuffed into
the back of my chair I made myself
tolerably comfortable for the night.
How long I slept I don't know. I awoke
suddenly, not as one does in bed, with a
drowsy feeling of relief that it is too
early to get up, but with every sense on
the alert, and a curious impression that
ornething unusual was happening. The
lire was still bright, and made a glow on
the opposite wall; but what made the
room so light war. the moon shining in
through the square window in the roof.
I could see everything in the room quite
plainly, but I seemed oppressed by some
reight that made me powerless to move.

helpless as if I had been bound. My
painting things were just as I had left
them; mv canvas, on which I had sketch
ed in a head, on the easel, and close by
on a stool, paints, hrushes and palette.
They had been there, that is to sav, for
now there stood in Iront 01" the easel,
with ms nacK to me, a tan man. with a
s.oop in his shoulders and dark grav
hair; lie had my palette in his hand, and
lie was painting with a sort of nervou:
hiiensitv that it thrilled me to see. 1
looked to see what lie was painting, for
he kept glancing over toward the patch
i:i the moonlight; but at first I could set
not iu ng.
Then I heard that little, gentle sigh.

feeling were so intense it made a kind of
radiance round her. 1 don t know how
long 1 watched. At last a sound made
me turn and look at the painter, lie
had thrown down the palette and brush
es and was standing looking at his work.
Then he turned slowly, and held out his
hand with a supplicating gesture. She
had risen, too. and come a step forward,
with a wonderful light in her eyes, and
just as she put her hands in his a cloud
crosst-d over the moon and blotted out
the figures from my sight. When it
passed the patch f moonlight was empty,
aud there was only th painted head and
the palette lying on the floor to convince
me I had been dreaming. After that I
must have fallen asleep, for it was broad
daylight when I next remember any
thing, and I heard the welcome and fa
miliar sound of my old woman prepar
ing my breakfast. The smell of frying
pilchards wits refreshingly mundane,
and I got up stiff and sore from my un
easy conch, prepare 1 to find that my
phantoms of the nigat before had been
nothing but a dream
the picture, just as you see it, and on
the floor were the palette and brushes.
I picked them up and looked anxiously
at them. If you'll believe me I could
never make up my mind to clean the
paint off that palette, and it hangs there
just as that fellow left it."
We sat t-ilent EOiue minutes when
Graves had done. I confess the story
impressed me a good deal, and glancing
up I could see that Quiller was strangely
