AUGUST HEAT

out-of-the-way corner of my memory, but I knew that I was practising little more than a plausible piece of self-deception.
Mr. Atkinson finished his work, spat on the ground, and got up with a sigh of relief.
`There! what do you think of that?' he said, with an air of evident pride.
The inscription which I read for the first time was this:
SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF
JAMES CLARENCE WITHENCROFT.
BORN JAN. 18TH, 1860.
HE PASSED AWAY VERY SUDDENLY ON AUGUST 20TH, 190
'In the midst of life we are in death '
For some time I sat in silence. Then a cold shudder ran down my spine. I asked him where he had seen the name.
`Oh, I didn't see it anywhere,' replied Mr. Atkinson. `I wanted some name, and I put down the first that came into my head. Why do you want to know?'
'It's a strange coincidence, but it happens to be mine.'
He gave a long, low whistle.
`And the dates?'
`I can only answer for one of them, and that's correct: `It's a rum go!' he said.
But he knew less than I did. I told him of my morning's work. I took the sketch from my pocket and showed it to him. As he looked, the expression of his face altered until it became more and more like that of the man I had drawn.
`And it was only the day before yesterday,' he said, `that I told Maria there were no such things as ghosts!'
Neither of us had seen a ghost,, but I knew what he meant.
`You probably heard my name,' I said.
`And you must have seen me somewhere and have forgotten it! Were you at Clacton-on-Sea last July?'
