There is a heautiful old manor
house in Yorkshire the property of
Mr. X. which is never mentioned
in the county without some ques-
tion being asked concerning its
ghost. It is stich a charmingly
dressed and such a heautiful ghost
and its story is .profoundly pa-
thetic. The last man who saw it
was a celebrated painter and a
hardened sceptic so far as ghosts
are concerned. He had been com-
missioned to paint Mr. X.'s daugh-
ter and was invited to stay at the
house a Sw dnys. Arriving at six
o'clock rwwi evening he found that

Then with some excitement the
asked him lo describe her. He did
so in no little .bewilderment for

finished they told Jzim that be had

dress was so remarkable that no one

thought of inquiring what the in-
truder was about in another person's
room but then thinking she might
be someone who had a right to be
there discreetly retired. "What was
she like?" "Oh such an odd-look
ing person" replied the maid; ''and
so quaintily dressed! She woro a
high dark rap with a long scarf fall-
ing from the top of it." Nothing
more was said to the maid. But the
explanation of her story is a strange
one for in another part of the pal-
ace there is a picture of the "odd-
looking person" she saw in her mis-
tress's room and the picture repre-
sents the nurse of King Edward VI.
She had been seen more' than onco
before just where the maid saw her.
