Excerpt: MISS TEMPY?S WATCHERS. The time of year was April; the place was a small farming town in New Hampshire, remote from any railroad. One by one the lights had been blown out in the scattered houses near Miss Tempy Dent?s; but as her neighbors took a last look out?of?doors, their eyes turned with instinctive curiosity toward the old house, where a lamp burned steadily. They gave a little sigh. ?Poor Miss Tempy!? said more than one bereft acquaintance; for the good woman lay dead in her north chamber, and the light was a watcher?s light. The funeral was set for the next day, at one o?clock.
