LITERATURE OF THE DAY: Today's spooky reading is a classic, "The Wind in the Rose-Bush" by Mary E. Wilkins (Freeman) (1852-1930).

Excerpt from "The Wind in the Rose-Bush" by Mary E. Wilkins (Freeman):
"The rose is on the bush, and it's gone from the bed in my room! Is this house haunted, or what?"

"I don't know anything about a house being haunted. I don't believe in such things. Be you crazy?" Mrs. Dent spoke with gathering force. The colour flashed back to her cheeks.

"No," said Rebecca shortly. "I ain't crazy yet, but I shall be if this keeps on much longer. I'm going to find out where that girl is before night."


Read the complete story.
