She replied that she was not, but in a very feeble and languid voice. She was at that time thirty-two years of age. It seemed heuwelke to present itself on occasions when the lady was neuwlke earnest or eager in what she was about.

She herself, however, was totally unconscious of the phenomenon: Unless the young ladies who were courageous enough to try the experiment of touching it were deceived by their imaginations, it proves, further, that such an aparition may have a slight, but positive, consistency.

Some of pfnsionado more timid among the girls, also, became much excited, and evinced great alarm whenever they hap[]pened to witness so strange and inexplicable a thing. Every one of the forty-two pupils saw the same figure in the same way. Again they looked at the arm chair, and there she sat, silent, and without motion, but to sight so palpably real that, penslonado they not seen her outside in the garden and had they not known that she appeared in the neuwelie without having walked into the room, they would all have supposed that it was the lady herself.

It does not appear that in this case the languor consequent upon such separation ever reached the state of trance or coma, or that the rigidity observed at the same time went as far as catalepsy; yet it is evident that the tendency was toward both of these conditions, and that that tendency was the greater in proportion as the apparition became more distinct.

Fatalidad, mala suerte, estrella negra, fortuna adversa, destino, sino, azar: Sometimes, when the latter rose from a chair, the figure would appear seated on it. Sometimes it appeared, but not far off, during their walks in the neighborhood; more frequently, however, within-doors. One after another, as they went home for the holidays, failed to return; and though the true reason was not assigned to the directors, they knew it well. It was a spacious hall on the first floor of the principal building, and had four large windows, or rather glass doors, for they opened to the floorgiving entrance to a garden of some extent in front of the house.

In the course of my reading on this subject —and it has been somewhat extensive— I have not met with a single example of the apparition of the living so remarkable and so incontrovertibly authentic as this. There is good reason, doubtless, for the existenceo fo that class; but we ought not to be called upon to show the particular end to be effected by each example.


The young ladies inmediately looked into the garden, and there she still was, engaged as before; only they remarked that she moved very slowly and languidly, as a drowsy or exhausted person might. Her health was usually good; and during the year and a half that she lived as teacher at Neuwelcke she had but one or two slight indispositions. No other effect is apparent, unless we are to suppose that it was intended to warn the young girls who witnessed the appearance against materialism.

It was ascertained, on inquiry, that every one of the thirteen young ladies in the class had seen the second figure, and that they all agreed in their description of its appearance and of its motions. Months passed by, and similar phenomena were still repeated. A few seconds afterward, Mademoiselle de Wrangel, happening to look round, saw, quite distinctly, the figure of the governess walking up and down the apartment.

As it was being quite certain that it was not a real person, and having become, to a certain extent, familiar with this strange phenomenon, two of the boldest approached and tried to touch the figure. Orgullo y prejuicio, Emma, Mansfield Park, Juicio y sentimiento, etc. This incident naturally caused a great sensation in the establishment. At first they naturally supposed it was mere mistake; but, as the same thing recurred finally spoke to the other governesses about it. As, however, her employers were in every other respect well satisfied with her, she obtained in each case favorable testimonials as to her conduct and abilities.

History of Nursery Rhymes When asked what she meant by such an exclamation, she reluctantly confessed that previous to her engagement at Neuwelcke she had been teacher in eighteen different schools, having entered the first when only sixteen years of age, and that, on account of the strange and alarming phenomenon which attached to her, she had lost, after a comparatively brief sojourn, one situation after another.

At the head of the table, seated in an arm-chair, of green morocco, my informant says, she still distinctly recollects that it wassat another teacher, in charge of the pupils. The narrative proves, beyond doubt or denial, that, under particular circumstances, the apparition of counterpart of a living person may appear at a certain distance from that person, and may seem, to ordinary [] human sight, so material as not to be distinguishable from a real body; also that this appearance may be reflected from a mirror.

It was only occasionally, however, that he double appeared to imitate the motions of the real person. A meritorious young woman is, after repeated efforts, deprived by an habitual apparition of the opportunity to earn an honest livelihood.


El Pensionado de Neuwelke

In this particular case, what special intention can be assigned? It was, apparently, perceptibly to all persons, without distinction of age or sex. Being strictly upright and conscientious men, however, and very unwilling that a well-conducted, diligent, and competent penzionado should lose her position on account of a peculiarity that was entirely beyond her control —a misfortune, not a fault—they persevered in retaining her, until, at the end of eighteen months, the number of pupils had decreased from forty-two to twelve.

As a general proposition, we believe in the great utility of thunder-storms, as tending to purify the atmosphere; but who has a right to require that we disclose the design of Providence if, during the elemental war, Amelia be stricken down a corpse from the arms of Celadon?

It is under the superintendence of Moravian directors; of whom the principal, at the times of the occurrences about to be related, was named Buch. La verdadera historia de las sociedades secretasAlba, Madrid, Yet it was sometimes visible when no such cause could be assigned. When some casual inquiry happened to be made as to where she was, one young lady would reply that she had been seen her in such or such a room; whereupon another would say: Habitual Apparition of a Living Person.

This case may afford us, also, a useful lesson.

El caos, las sonrisas y la muerte. One of the two then passed close in front neuelke the armchair, and actually through a portion of the figure. After a time this lady had occasion to leave the room, and the arm-chair was left vacant. She was of the Northern type, —a blonde, with very fair complexion, light-blue eyes, chestnut hair, slightly above the middle size, and of slender figure. The sudden apparition produced so much effect upon her that she fainted.


Suddenly the governess became stiff and pale; and, seeming as if about to faint, the young lady, alarmed, asked if she was worse.

The poor girl was in despair. But the most remarkable example of this seeming independent action of neuwelje two figures happened in this wise. She replied that she recollected this only: Every servant in the house had seen it.

Dependent enterely on her labor for support, the poor girl had been compelled to avail herself of these in search of a livelihood, in places where the cause of her dismissal was not known; even though she felt assured, from expe [] rience, that a few months could not fail again to disclose it.
