None of her descendants had fluch : eyes. \I could not come,\ she said, in. deep sepulchral tones, \in gas -light. <3host8 and gas-light are at war al­ ways. As for kerosene oil, we groan ,in spirit at its* use. How mortal hoses can, night after night, inhale the odor it emits, is a wonder. It is worse than brimstone. \We have put our cold lips under your chim­ neys, and blown our ghostly breaths into the flame. We have seen the chimneys blacken with, smoke, and apartments fill with disgusting fira- grhnco. People only said the lamp is in a draught. They moved it .and bore with it. \We shall have to yield. Kerosene is a modern dis­ covery. Ghosts are old fashioned* |Tp be out of date is to be out of rnind. Tour tallow candle 'pleases me. We ghosts like the light of other days around us. We always, in the body, burned tallow candles.\ The fine eyes of my grandmother gazed at my penny dip steadfastly for a moment. She seemed to see visions and dream dreams. \My dear,\ she .said, \you are .the first of the family that has re­ turned to candles since the innova­ tion of gas. You are indebted to your dip for my presence. How hollow I would have looked under a chandelier—how bloodless, how white!
