MISS CORNELIUS

ANDREW SAXON was senior science master at Cornford School. Cornford is a new school, remodelled on an old foundation. H.M.Ls, when they can afford it, and that is not often, send their boys there, especially if they have a bent for science. Many parents thought that Andrew should have been headmaster, but he himself was aware of his limitations. That he was more of a teacher than an administrator, more of a stimulus than a teacher, one might guess after reading that brilliantly disturbing book, Saxon and Butler's Introduction to the Principles of Organic Chemistry.
He was known to the boys as `Anglo-Saxon,' or `Old Alfred,' and was treated by them with an affectionate respect, which was increased by the knowledge that he was a first-rate rifle shot, and had once been runner-up for the King's Prize at Bisley.
Saxon had never shown any special interest in psychical research, but when his friend Clinton, the manager of the Eastern Counties Bank, asked him to take part in a joint investigation into what was going on in Meadowfield Terrace, he did not like to refuse. The house was occupied by Parke, a cashier in the bank, Mrs. Parke and two children, a cook, who had been with Parke for five years, a rather slow-witted girl of sixteen who acted as nurse-parlourmaid, and Miss Cornelius. Saxon knew Miss Cornelius by sight as the elderly lady who lived in that rather delightful house by the vicarage. He understood from Clinton that it was undergoing extensive renovations, and that while the plumbers and painters were about the place she had suggested lodging with the Parkes, who were always glad to receive paying guests.
The manifestations had been going on over a period of three weeks. They consisted apparently of rappings, noises like those made by the dropping of very heavy weights, unaccountable
