This matter began, as far as I am concerned, with the reading of a notice in the obituary section of the Gentleman's Magazine for an early year in the nineteenth century:

"On February 26th, at his residence in the Cathedral Close of Barchester, the Venerable John Benwell Haynes, D.D., aged 57, Archdeacon of Sowerbridge and Rector of Pickhill and Candley.

His speedy preferments, first to a Prebend, and subsequently to the dignity of Precentor in the Cathedral of Barchester, form an eloquent testimony to the respect in which he was held and to his eminent qualifications.

His sermons, ever conformable to the principles of the religion and Church which he adorned, displayed in no ordinary degree, without the least trace of enthusiasm, the refinement of the scholar united with the graces of the Christian.

His interest in the venerable and awful pile under whose hoary vault he was so punctual an attendant, and particularly in the musical portion of its rites, might be termed filial, and formed a strong and delightful contrast to the polite indifference displayed by too many of our Cathedral dignitaries at the present time."

I had read the obituary notice which I have been quoting, quite by chance, along with a great many others of the same period. It had excited some little speculation in my mind, but, beyond thinking that, if I ever had an opportunity of examining the local records of the period indicated, I would try to remember Dr. Haynes, I made no effort to pursue his case.

Quite lately I was cataloguing the manuscripts in the library of the college to which he belonged. I had reached the end of the numbered volumes on the shelves, and I proceeded to ask the librarian Whether there were any more books which he thought I ought to include in my description. "I don't think there are," he said, "but we had better come and look at the manuscript class and make sure.

lately - हाल में, हाल ही में

cataloguing - तालिका, नामावली/नामसूची, सूची बनाना, सूची, क्षृंखला

proceeded - आगे आना, आगे बढना, चलना, बढते जाना, शुरू करना, बढते जाना

librarian - पुस्तकाध्यक्ष, लाइब्रेरियन, पुस्तकालयाध्यक्ष

Have you time to do that now?" I had time. We went to the library, checked off the manuscripts, and, at the end of our survey arrived at a shelf of which I had seen nothing.

checked off - चेक ऑफ

Its contents consisted for the most part of sermons, bundles of fragmentary papers, college exercises, Cyrus, an epic poem in several cantos, the product of a country clergyman's leisure, mathematical tracts by a deceased professor, and other similar material of a kind with which I am only too familiar. I took brief notes of these. Lastly, there was a tin box, which was pulled out and dusted.

Contents - मात्रा, सन्तुष्ट, सन्तुष्ट करना, सन्तुष्ट करना, इच्छुक

Its label, much faded, was thus inscribed: "Papers of the Ven. Archdeacon Haynes. Bequeathed in 1834 by his sister, Miss Letitia Haynes."

faded - सनक

thus - इस प्रकार

inscribed - छापना, उत्किर्ण करना

bequeathed - वसीयत करना

I knew at once that the name was one which I had somewhere encountered, and could very soon locate it. "That must be the Archdeacon Haynes who came to a very odd end at Barchester. I've read his obituary in the Gentleman's Magazine. May I take the box home? Do you know if there is anything interesting in it?"

encountered - सामना करना, मुठभेड़, मुठभेड़ करना, लड़ाई, सामना करना

The librarian was very willing that I should take the box and examine it at leisure. "I never looked inside it myself," he said, "but I've always been meaning to. I am pretty sure that is the box which our old Master once said ought never to have been accepted by the college.

Master - उस्ताद, शिक्षक

He said that to Martin years ago; and he said also that as long as he had control over the library it should never be opened.

Martin - अबाबील चिड़ियाँ, अबाबील

Martin told me about it, and said that he wanted terribly to know what was in it; but the Master was librarian, and always kept the box in the lodge, so there was no getting at it in his time, and when he died it was taken away by mistake by his heirs, and only returned a few years ago.

Terribly - भद्दा, बहुत ज़्यादा, बहुत, भयानकता से

Lodge - रखना, जमा करना, मकान, दायर करना, ठहरना, छोटा मकान, ठहराना

heirs - उत्तराधिकारी

I can't think why I haven't opened it; but, as I have to go away from Cambridge this afternoon, you had better have first go at it. I think I can trust you not to publish anything undesirable in our catalogue."

trust - विश्वास, भरोसा

undesirable - अनुपयुक्त, अवांछनीय व्यक्ति, अप्रिय, आपत्तिजनक

catalogue - सूची, तालिका, सूचीपत्र

I took the box home and examined its contents, and thereafter consulted the librarian as to what should be done about publication, and, since I have his leave to make a story out of it, provided I disguise the identity of the people concerned, I will try what can be done.

thereafter - तब से, उसके बाद, उस के बाद

consulted - विचार विमर्श करना, राय लेना, राय लेना, देखना{पुस्तक}/मत पूछना

publication - प्रकाशन

disguise - भेष बदलना, छिपाना, वेष बदलन्, वेष बदलन्, रुप बदलना

The materials are, of course, mainly journals and letters. How much I shall quote and how much epitomize must be determined by considerations of space. The proper understanding of the situation has necessitated a little-not very arduous-research, which has been greatly facilitated by the excellent illustrations and text of the Barchester volume in Bell's Cathedral Series.

epitomize - प्रतीक होना, साकार रूप होना, प्रतीक होना

considerations - ध्यान, विचार, मुआवजा, कारण, लिहाज़

necessitated - मजबूर करना, अनिवार्य बना देना

When you enter the choir of Barchester Cathedral now, you pass through a screen of metal and coloured marbles, designed by Sir Gilbert Scott, and find yourself in what I must call a very bare and odiously furnished place. The stalls are modern, without canopies.

choir - कोरस, वृन्दगान, गायक-मंडली

marbles - कंचा, सगंमरमर

Gilbert - male given name

bare - अनावृत

odiously - घृणास्पद

furnished - सुस्सजित करना, प्रस्तुत करना, देना{आवश्यक सामग्री}, सजाना

canopies - काकपिट की छत, छतरी, काकपिट की छत, चंदवा/चँदवा/चन्दवा

The places of the dignitaries and the names of the prebends have fortunately been allowed to survive, and are inscribed on small brass plates affixed to the stalls. The organ is in the triforium, and what is seen of the case is Gothic. The reredos and its surroundings are like every other.

brass - पीतल

affixed - लगाना, प्रत्यय, संयुक्त करना/जोड़ना, जोड़ना

organ - अंग, ऑर्गन

triforium - gallery of arches

Gothic - असभ्य, गथिक भाषा संबंधी, गथ लोगों से संबंधित, गथिक भाषा

reredos - रेडोस

surroundings - आस पास का, आस पास का

Careful engravings of a hundred years ago show a very different state of things. The organ is on a massive classical screen. The stalls are also classical and very massive. There is a baldacchino of wood over the altar, with urns upon its corners.

engravings - नक्काशी, नक्काशीदार चित्र

massive - भारी, भीमकाय, विशाल

altar - वेदी

urns - एक प्रकार का गोल बर्तन/सुराही/जलपात्र, केतली, कलश

Further east is a solid altar screen, classical in design, of wood, with a pediment, in which is a triangle surrounded by rays, enclosing certain Hebrew letters in gold. Cherubs contemplate these. There is a pulpit with a great sounding-board at the eastern end of the stalls on the north side, and there is a black and white marble pavement.

pediment - त्रिकोणिका

triangle - त्रिकोण, त्रिभुज

surrounded - किनारा, भरा होना, चारों ओर होना, घेर लेना, चारों ओर होना

marble - संगमरमर

pavement - पटरी, छज्जा, फर्श, रास्ते का फर्श

Two ladies and a gentleman are admiring the general effect. From other sources I gather that the archdeacon's stall then, as now, was next to the bishop's throne at the south-eastern end of the stalls. His house almost faces the western part of the church, and is a fine red-brick building of William the Third's time.

stall - थान

throne - सिंहासन, राजसिंहासन, तख़्त, तख्त

brick - ईंट

William - male given name

Here Dr. Haynes, already a mature man, took up his abode with his sister in the year 1810. The dignity had long been the object of his wishes, but his predecessor refused to depart until he had attained the age of ninety-two. About a week after he had held a modest festival in celebration of that ninety-second birthday, there came a morning, late in the year, when Dr.

Haynes, hurrying cheerfully into his breakfast-room, rubbing his hands and humming a tune, was greeted, and checked in his genial flow of spirits, by the sight of his sister, seated, indeed, in her usual place behind the tea-urn, but bowed forward and sobbing unrestrainedly into her handkerchief. "What-what is the matter? What bad news?" he began. "Oh, Johnny, you've not heard?

cheerfully - खुशी खुशी

rubbing - रबिंग, (rub), रगड़ना

The poor dear archdeacon!" "The archdeacon, yes? What is it-ill, is he?" "No, no; they found him on the staircase this morning; it is so shocking." "Is it possible! Dear, dear, poor Pulteney! Had there been any seizure?" "They don't think so, and that is almost the worst thing about it. It seems to have been all the fault of that stupid maid of theirs, Jane." Dr. Haynes paused.

"I don't quite understand, Letitia. How was the maid at fault?" "Why, as far as I can make out, there was a stair-rod missing, and she never mentioned it, and the poor archdeacon set his foot quite on the edge of the step-you know how slippery that oak is-and it seems he must have fallen almost the whole flight and broken his neck. It is so sad for poor Miss Pulteney.

rod - दण्ड, दंड, जाति, बेंत, प्रभुत्व, शासन दण्ड, शलाकाकृति जीवाणु

slippery - रपटीला, फिसलाऊ

oak - बलूत

Of course, they will get rid of the girl at once. I never liked her." Miss Haynes's grief resumed its sway, but eventually relaxed so far as to permit of her taking some breakfast. Not so her brother, who, after standing in silence before the window for some minutes, left the room, and did not appear again that morning.

rid - मुक्त करा

sway - आधिपत्य, प्रभाव, प्रभावित करना, शासन, झुकना, अधिकार, शासन करना

permit - अनुमति देना

silence - ख़ामोशी, चुप्पी, मौनता

I need only add that the careless maid-servant was dismissed forthwith, but that the missing stair-rod was very shortly afterwards found under the stair-carpet-an additional proof, if any were needed, of extreme stupidity and carelessness on her part.

dismissed - अस्वीकार करना, निकाल देना, बरखास्त करना, आउट करना, इनकार करना

forthwith - तुरन्त, अविलंब, तत्क्षण, फौरन

For a good many years Dr. Haynes had been marked out by his ability, which seems to have been really considerable, as the likely successor of Archdeacon Pulteney, and no disappointment was in store for him. He was duly installed, and entered with zeal upon the discharge of those functions which are appropriate to one in his position.

considerable - बहुत अधिक, महत्वपूर्ण, बहुत

successor - वारिस

disappointment - मायूसी, निराशा, आशाभंग

duly - यथावत्, यथासमय, उचित रीति से

A considerable space in his journals is occupied with exclamations upon the confusion in which Archdeacon Pulteney had left the business of his office and the documents appertaining to it. Dues upon Wringham and Barnswood have been uncollected for something like twelve years, and are largely irrecoverable; no visitation has been held for seven years; four chancels are almost past mending.

The persons deputized by the archdeacon have been nearly as incapable as himself. It was almost a matter for thankfulness that this state of things had not been permitted to continue, and a letter from a friend confirms this view. "[Greek: ho katechôn]," it says (in rather cruel allusion to the Second Epistle to the Thessalonians), "is removed as last. My poor friend!

deputized - प्रतिनिधित्व करना, प्रतिनिधित्व करना, प्रतिनियुक्ति करना

incapable - अक्षम, अयोग्य, असमर्थ

Upon what a scene of confusion will you be entering! I give you my word that, on the last occasion of my crossing his threshold, there was no single paper that he could lay hands upon, no syllable of mine that he could hear, and no fact in connection with my business that he could remember.

threshold - डेवढ़ी

syllable - शब्दांश, अक्षर

But now, thanks to a negligent maid and a loose stair-carpet, there is some prospect that necessary business will be transacted without a complete loss alike of voice and temper." This letter was tucked into a pocket in the cover of one of the diaries.

There can be no doubt of the new archdeacon's zeal and enthusiasm. "Give me but time to reduce to some semblance of order the innumerable errors and complications with which I am confronted, and I shall gladly and sincerely join with the aged Israelite in the canticle which too many, I fear, pronounce but with their lips.

reduce to - अंग्रेजी से हिंदी में अनुवाद करें:कम करें

semblance - झलक, सादृश्य

innumerable - असंख्य, अमित

complications - जटिलता, परेशानी, उलझन

sincerely - सचमुच, भवदीय, ईमनदारी से, ईमनदारी से

Israelite - native or inhabitant of Israel, descendant of Jacob

" This reflection I find, not in a diary, but a letter; the doctor's friends seem to have returned his correspondence to his surviving sister. He does not confine himself, however, to reflections.

reflections - झलक, परछाई, आरोप, दोष, चिंतन, ववर्ण, दोषारोपण, प्रतिबिम्ब

His investigation of the rights and duties of his office are very searching and businesslike, and there is a calculation in one place that a period of three years will just suffice to set the business of the Archdeaconry upon a proper footing. The estimate appears to have been an exact one.

investigation - अनुसन्धान, जाँच, अन्वेषण, अनुसंधान, जाँच पड़ताल, गवेक्षण

businesslike - व्यावहारिक

For just three years he is occupied in reforms; but I look in vain at the end of that time for the promised Nunc dimittis. He has now found a new sphere of activity. Hitherto his duties have precluded him from more than an occasional attendance at the Cathedral services. Now he begins to take an interest in the fabric and the music.

Upon his struggles with the organist, an old gentleman who had been in office since 1786, I have no time to dwell; they were not attended with any marked success. More to the purpose is his sudden growth of enthusiasm for the Cathedral itself and its furniture. There is a draft of a letter to Sylvanus Urban (which I do not think was ever sent) describing the stalls in the choir.

organist - अरगनिस्ट

As I have said, these were of fairly late date-of about the year 1700, in fact.

"The archdeacon's stall, situated at the south-east end, west of the episcopal throne (now so worthily occupied by the truly excellent prelate who adorns the See of Barchester), is distinguished by some curious ornamentation.

In addition to the arms of Dean West, by whose efforts the whole of the internal furniture of the choir was completed, the prayer-desk is terminated at the eastern extremity by three small but remarkable statuettes in the grotesque manner.

One is an exquisitely modelled figure of a cat, whose crouching posture suggests with admirable spirit the suppleness, vigilance, and craft of the redoubted adversary of the genus Mus. opposite to this is a figure seated upon a throne and invested with the attributes of royalty; but it is no earthly monarch whom the carver has sought to portray.

exquisitely - नज़ाकत से, नज़ाकत से

His feet are studiously concealed by the long robe in which he is draped: but neither the crown nor the cap which he wears suffice to hide the prick-ears and curving horns which betray his Tartarean origin; and the hand which rests upon his knee is armed with talons of horrifying length and sharpness. Between these two figures stands a shape muffled in a long mantle.

studiously - ध्यान से, जान बूझ कर

This might at first sight be mistaken for a monk or 'friar of orders grey,'for the head is cowled and a knotted cord depends from somewhere about the waist. A slight inspection, however, will lead to a very different conclusion.

monk - भिक्षु

friar - ईसाइयों की विशिष्ट धार्मिक शाखा का सदस्य, रोमन कैथोलिक भिक्षु

waist - कमर

Slight - थोड़ा

inspection - निरीक्षण

The knotted cord is quickly seen to be a halter, held by a hand all but concealed within the draperies; while the sunken features and, horrid to relate, the rent flesh upon the cheek-bones, proclaim the King of Terrors.

There is more description in the paper, and, seeing that the woodwork in question has now disappeared, it has a considerable interest. A paragraph at the end is worth quoting:

woodwork - लकड़ी का सामान, लकडी से बनी चीजें, काष्ठ कर्म, गोल की चौखट

"Some late researches among the Chapter accounts have shown me that the carving of the stalls was not, as was very usually reported, the work of Dutch artists, but was executed by a native of this city or district named Austin. The timber was procured from an oak copse in the vicinity, the property of the Dean and Chapter, known as Holywood.

Upon a recent visit to the parish within whose boundaries it is situated, I learned from the aged and truly respectable incumbent that traditions still lingered amongst the inhabitants of the great size and age of the oaks employed to furnish the materials of the stately structure which has been, however imperfectly, described in the above lines.

Of one in particular, which stood near the centre of the grove, it is remembered that it was known as the Hanging Oak.

grove - उपवन, बाग, झुरमुट, कुञ्ज

The propriety of that title is confirmed by the fact that a quantity of human bones was found in the soil about its roots, and that at certain times of the year it was the custom for those who wished to secure a successful issue to their affairs, whether of love or the ordinary business of life, to suspend from its boughs small images or puppets rudely fashioned of straw, twigs, or the like rustic materials."

So much for the archdeacon's archaeological investigations. To return to his career as it is to be gathered from his diaries. Those of his first three years of hard and careful work show him throughout in high spirits, and, doubtless, during this time, that reputation for hospitality and urbanity which is mentioned in his obituary notice was well deserved.

investigations - अनुसन्धान, जाँच, अन्वेषण, अनुसंधान, जाँच पड़ताल, गवेक्षण

After that, as time goes on, I see a shadow coming over him-destined to develop into utter blackness-which I cannot but think must have been reflected in his outward demeanour. He commits a good deal of his fears and troubles to his diary; there was no other outlet for them. He was unmarried, and his sister was not always with him.

shadow - परछाई, छाया, साया, tछाँव

utter - पूर्ण

blackness - state or quality of being black, result or product

outward - जाता हुआ, बाहरी, बाहर की ओर, बाह्य, बाहर की ओर

"Aug. 30, 1816.-The days begin to draw in more perceptibly than ever. Now that the Archdeaconry papers are reduced to order, I must find some further employment for the evening hours of autumn and winter. It is a great blow that Letitia's health will not allow her to stay through these months. Why not go on with my Defence of Episcopacy? It may be useful.

Aug - अगस्त

draw in - ड्रा इन

perceptibly - स्पष्ट रूप से, प्रत्यक्षरूप से, स्पष्ट रूप से

"Sept. 15.-Letitia has left me for Brighton.

Sept - सितंबर

Brighton - ब्रिटन

"Oct. 11.-Candles lit in the choir for the first time at evening prayers. It came as a shock: I find that I absolutely shrink from the dark season.

shock - सदमा

shrink - घटना, पीछे हटना, सिकोड़ना, मनोविश्लेषक, मनश्चिकित्सक

"Nov. 17.-Much struck by the character of the carving on my desk: I do not know that I had ever carefully noticed it before. My attention was called to it by an accident. During the Magnificat I was, I regret to say, almost overcome with sleep. My hand was resting on the back of the carved figure of a cat which is the nearest to me of the three figures on the end of my stall.

carved - काट कर चित्र बनाना, नक्काशी करना, तराशना, माँस के टुकड़े करना

I was not aware of this, for I was not looking in that direction, until I was startled by what seemed a softness, a feeling as of rather rough and coarse fur, and a sudden movement, as if the creature were twisting round its head to bite me. I regained complete consciousness in an instant, and I have some idea that I must have uttered a suppressed exclamation, for I noticed that Mr.

Treasurer turned his head quickly in my direction. The impression of the unpleasant feeling was so strong that I found myself rubbing my hand upon my surplice. This accident led me to examine the figures after prayers more carefully than I had done before, and I realized for the first time with what skill they are executed.

treasurer - कोषाद्यक्ष, कोषाध्यक्ष, खज़ांची

surplice - ढ़ीला श्वेत चोला

"Dec. 6.-I do indeed miss Letitia's company. The evenings, after I have worked as long as I can at my Defence, are very trying. The house is too large for a lonely man, and visitors of any kind are too rare. I get an uncomfortable impression when going to my room that there is company of some kind. The fact is (I may as well formulate it to myself) that I hear voices.

Dec - abbreviation of December

formulate - निरूपित करना, निरूपित करना, प्रतिपादित करना

This, I am well aware, is a common symptom of incipient decay of the brain-and I believe that I should be less disquieted than I am if I had any suspicion that this was the cause. I have none-none whatever, nor is there anything in my family history to give colour to such an idea.

incipient - आरंभिक, प्रारंभी

decay - खराब करना, ख़राब होना, विकार, ख़राब होना, पतन, विघटन होना

disquieted - अशांति, अशांत होना

diligent - परिश्रमी, सतत

remedy - चारा

efficacious - प्रभावोत्पादक, इष्ट फलोत्पादक

"Jan. 1. My trouble is, I must confess it, increasing upon me. Last night, upon my return after midnight from the Deanery, I lit my candle to go upstairs. I was nearly at the top when something whispered to me, 'Let me wish you a happy New Year.'I could not be mistaken: it spoke distinctly and with a peculiar emphasis.

Jan - जनवरी

confess - मानना, कबूल करना, अंगीकार करना

Deanery - डीनरी

candle - मोमबत्ती, शमा

whispered - काना फूसी, कानाफूसी, सरसराहट, अफ़वाह, फुसफुसाहट, सरसराना

distinctly - in a distinct manner

peculiar - अजीब, अजीबो-गरीब

emphasis - बल, महत्व, जोर, अवधारणा, अति महत्त्वपूर्ण वार्तालाप

Had I dropped my candle, as I all but did, I tremble to think what the consequences must have been. As it was, I managed to get up the last flight, and was quickly in my room with the door locked, and experienced no other disturbance.

tremble - परेशान करना, हिलना, कम्पन, थरथराना, क्ँआपना, घबराना, थर्रा उठना

disturbance - उत्तेजना, घबराहट, उपद्रव, अशांति, दंगा, विघ्न, खलल

"Jan. 15.-I had occasion to come downstairs last night to my workroom for my watch, which I had inadvertently left on my table when I went up to bed. I think I was at the top of the last flight when I had a sudden impression of a sharp whisper in my ear 'Take care.'I clutched the balusters and naturally looked round at once. Of course, there was nothing.

workroom - कार्यकक्ष

inadvertently - गलती से, असावधानी से, गलती से

whisper - फुसफुसाना

clutched - क्लच, अण्डो का समुच्चय, उपक कर पकड़ना

balusters - लघुस्तंभ

After a moment I went on-it was no good turning back-but I had as nearly as possible fallen: a cat-a large one by the feel of it-slipped between my feet, but again, of course, I saw nothing. It may have been the kitchen cat, but I do not think it was.

slipped - निकालना, गिरना, जाना, उतरना, गँवा देना, चोरी से रखना, डालना

"Feb. 27.-A curious thing last night, which I should like to forget. Perhaps if I put it down here I may see it in its true proportion. I worked in the library from about 9 to 10.

Feb - फरवरीई

proportion - अंश, अनुपात, समानुपात, भाग

The hall and staircase seemed to be unusually full of what I can only call movement without sound: by this I mean that there seemed to be continuous going and coming, and that whenever I ceased writing to listen, or looked out into the hall, the stillness was absolutely unbroken.

ceased - बन्द करना, बन्द करना, अन्त होना, बंद होना/रुकना

stillness - पवनरहितता

Nor, in going to my room at an earlier hour than usual-about half-past ten-was I conscious of anything that I could call a noise. It so happened that I had told John to come to my room for the letter to the bishop which I wished to have delivered early in the morning at the Palace. He was to sit up, therefore, and come for it when he heard me retire.

conscious - सतर्क, जागरूक, साभिप्राय, चेतन, सचेत, जाग्रत, अभिज्ञ, सचेत/चेतन

This I had for the moment forgotten, though I had remembered to carry the letter with me to my room. But when, as I was winding up my watch, I heard a light tap at the door, and a low voice saying, 'May I come in?'(which I most undoubtedly did hear), I recollected the fact, and took up the letter from my dressing-table, saying, 'Certainly: come in.

winding - घुमावदार, घुमाव, चक्कर, टेढ़ा मेढ़ा, (wind)

tap - नल

Undoubtedly - निश्चित रूप से

recollected - याद करना, स्मरण करना

'No one, however, answered my summons, and it was now that, as I strongly suspect, I committed an error: for I opened the door and held the letter out. There was certainly no one at that moment in the passage, but, in the instant of my standing there, the door at the end opened and John appeared carrying a candle.

summons - सम्मन, आह्वाहन पत्र, बुलावा, सम्मन देना

suspect - समझना, लगना, क्षतिग्रस्त, पर शक करना, अपराधी समझना, संदेहास्पद

passage - गलियारा

I asked him whether he had come to the door earlier; but am satisfied that he had not. I do not like the situation; but although my senses were very much on the alert, and though it was some time before I could sleep, I must allow that I perceived nothing further of an untoward character."

satisfied - शांत करना, आपूर्ति करना, पूरा करना, भुगतान करना, सन्तुष्ट करना

alert - सतर्क

perceived - अर्थ लगाना, देखना, महसूस करना, समझ लेना, समझ लेना

untoward - अनुपयुक्त, अशुभ, अप्रिय, हठी, विमुख, कष्टकारक

With the return of spring, when his sister came to live with him for some months, Dr. Haynes's entries became more cheerful, and, indeed, no symptom of depression is discernible unto the early part of September, when he was again left alone. And now, indeed, there is evidence that he was incommoded again, and that more pressingly.

more cheerful - आनंददायक

depression - मंदी

discernible - समझने योग्य, समझने योग्य

unto - तक

incommoded - कष्ट देना

pressingly - दबावपूर्ण रूप से

To this matter I will return in a moment, but I digress to put in a document which, rightly or wrongly, I believe to have a bearing on the thread of the story.

rightly - उचित, उचित रूप से

wrongly - अनुचित ढंग से, गलत ढंग से, गलत, अनैतिकतापूर्ण ढंग से

The account-books of Dr. Haynes, preserved along with his other papers, show, from a date but little later than that of his institution as archdeacon, a quarterly payment of Ł25 to J.L. Nothing could have been made of this, had it stood by itself. But I connect with it a very dirty and ill-written letter, which, like another that I have quoted, was in a pocket in the cover of a diary.

account-books - (account-books) लेखा पुस्तिकाएं

preserved - मुरब्बा, सम्भाल कर रखना, बचाना, सुरक्षित रखना, बनाये रखना

Institution - संस्थान, संसथा भवन, संस्थापन, संस्था, सभाआ, समाज, संस्थन, संसठा

quarterly - त्रैमासिक पत्रिका, त्रैमासिक, तिमाही, विपरीत दिशाओं में

Of date or postmark there is no vestige, and the decipherment was not easy. It appears to run:

postmark - डाक मोहर

decipherment - the analysis of documents written in ancient languages

About the time at which I suppose this letter to have been written there is, in fact, a payment of Ł40 to J.L.

We return to the diary:

"Oct. 22.-At evening prayers, during the Psalms, I had that same experience which I recollect from last year.

Psalms - भजन् करना, भजन, भजन् करना

recollect - याद करना, मन लगाना, होश में आना

I was resting my hand on one of the carved figures, as before (I usually avoid that of the cat now), and-I was going to have said-a change came over it, but that seems attributing too much importance to what must, after all, be due to some physical affection in myself: at any rate, the wood seemed to become chilly and soft as if made of wet linen.

attributing - विशेषता, लक्ष्ण, सहजगुण

affection - स्नेह, प्यार

chilly - रूखा, उदासीन, ठण्डा, उत्साह हीन, अवशीत

linen - लिनेन, कपडे की बनी घरेलु चादरें/मेजपोश आदि, सन का कपड़ा

I can assign the moment at which I became sensible of this. The choir was singing the words (Set thou an ungodly man to be ruler over him and) let Satan stand at his right hand.

assign - निश्चित करना, देना, नियुक्त करना, निर्धारित करना, बाँटना, सौपना

thou - तू

ungodly - अनुचित, अधर्मी, नास्तिक, असमय

ruler - पैमाना

Satan - शैतान, इबलीस

"The whispering in my house was more persistent tonight. I seemed not to be rid of it in my room. I have not noticed this before. A nervous man, which I am not, and hope I am not becoming, would have been much annoyed, if not alarmed, by it. The cat was on the stairs tonight. I think it sits there always. There is no kitchen cat.

whispering - कानाफूसी, सरसराहट, फुसफुसाहट, सरगोशी करता

persistent - सतत, लगातार, शाश्वत, अनवरत, लगातार/निरन्तर, दृढ/ज़िद्दी, दृढ

"Nov. 15.-Here again I must note a matter I do not understand. I am much troubled in sleep. No definite image presented itself, but I was pursued by the very vivid impression that wet lips were whispering into my ear with great rapidity and emphasis for some time together. After this, I suppose, I feel asleep, but was awakened with a start by a feeling as if a hand were laid on my shoulder.

pursued - पाने की कोशिश करना, लगे रहना, पीछा करना, आगे बढना/बढाना

vivid - चमकीला, सुस्पष्ट, प्रबल, विशद, सजीव, जीता जागता, जीवंत

awakened - उठाना, जगाना, जागना, जागृत करना, जागृत करना

To my intense alarm I found myself standing at the top of the lowest flight on the first staircase. The moon was shining brightly enough through the large window to let me see that there was a large cat on the second or third step. I can make no comment. I crept up to bed again, I do not know how. Yes, mine is a heavy burden. [Then follows a line or two which has been scratched out.

intense - अत्यधिक, तीव्र, भावुक, गहन, गम्भीर, तीक्ष्ण/उत्कट/अतिमात्र, तेज

crept - जाना, डर, छिपकर घुसना, घुसना, भय, सरपण करना, रेंगना, सरकना

heavy burden - भारी भार

scratched out - काट दिया

I fancy I read something like 'acted for the best.']"

Not long after this it is evident to me that the archdeacon's firmness began to give way under the pressure of these phenomena. I omit as unnecessarily painful and distressing the ejaculations and prayers which, in the months of December and January, appear for the first time and become increasingly frequent. Throughout this time, however, he is obstinate in clinging to his post.

Why he did not plead ill-health and take refuge at Bath or Brighton I cannot tell; my impression is that it would have done him no good; that he was a man who, if he had confessed himself beaten by the annoyances, would have succumbed at once, and that he was conscious of this. He did seek to palliate them by inviting visitors to his house. The result he has noted in this fashion:

wind - हवा

"Jan. 9.-Allen thinks this is a very noisy house. He thinks, too, that my cat is an unusually large and fine specimen, but very wild.

specimen - नमूना, आदर्श, अजीब आदमी

"Jan. 10.-Allen and I in the library until 11. He left me twice to see what the maids were doing in the hall: returning the second time he told me he had seen one of them passing through the door at the end of the passage, and said if his wife were here she would soon get them into better order. I asked him what coloured dress the maid wore; he said grey or white. I supposed it would be so.

maids - दासी, नौकरानी, नोकरानी, अववाहिता, कुमारी, किंकरी

"Jan. 11.-Allen left me today. I must be firm."

firm - स्थिर, दृढ़, अचल

These words, I must be firm, occur again and again on subsequent days; sometimes they are the only entry. In these cases they are in an unusually large hand, and dug into the paper in a way which must have broken the pen that wrote them.

subsequent - अनुगामी, बाद का, के बादवाला, बाद वाला, पश्चातवर्ती

dug - थन, (dig)

Apparently the archdeacon's friends did not remark any change in his behaviour, and this gives me a high idea of his courage and determination. The diary tells us nothing more than I have indicated of the last days of his life. The end of it all must be told in the polished language of the obituary notice:

"The morning of the 26th of February was cold and tempestuous. At an early hour the servants had occasion to go into the front hall of the residence occupied by the lamented subject of these lines.

Assistance was procured, and an universal consternation was experienced upon the discovery that he had been the object of a brutal and a murderous attack. The vertebral column was fractured in more than one place. This might have been the result of a fall: it appeared that the stair-carpet was loosened at one point.

But, in addition to this, there were injuries inflicted upon the eyes, nose and mouth, as if by the agency of some savage animal, which, dreadful to relate, rendered those features unrecognizable. The vital spark was, it is needless to add, completely extinct, and had been so, upon the testimony of respectable medical authorities, for several hours.

savage - असभ्य, दुष्ट, तीव्र, काटना, असभ्य आदिम जाति का सदस्य, जंगली

The writer goes on to reflect upon the probability that the writings of Mr. Shelley, Lord Byron, and M. Voltaire may have been instrumental in bringing about the disaster, and concludes by hoping, somewhat vaguely, that this event may "operate as an example to the rising generation"; but this portion of his remarks need not be quoted in full.

I had already formed the conclusion that Dr. Haynes was responsible for the death of Dr. Pulteney. But the incident connected with the carved figure of death upon the archdeacon's stall was a very perplexing feature. The conjecture that it had been cut out of the wood of the Hanging Oak was not difficult, but seemed impossible to substantiate.

incident - घटना

perplexing - हैरान करना, व्याकुल करना

substantiate - सही साबित करना, सिद्ध करना, पुष्टि करना

However, I paid a visit to Barchester, partly with the view of finding out whether there were any relics of the woodwork to be heard of. I was introduced by one of the canons to the curator of the local museum, who was, my friend said, more likely to be able to give me information on the point than any one else.

I told this gentleman of the description of certain carved figures and arms formerly on the stalls, and asked whether any had survived. He was able to show me the arms of Dean West and some other fragments. These, he said, had been got from an old resident, who had also once owned a figure-perhaps one of those which I was inquiring for. There was a very odd thing about that figure, he said.

"The old man who had it told me that he picked it up in a wood-yard, whence he had obtained the still extant pieces, and had taken it home for his children. On the way home he was fiddling about with it and it came in two in his hands, and a bit of paper dropped out.

obtained - पाना, प्राप्त करना, हाशिल करना, ले लेना, प्रचलित होना, लेना

extant - मौजुद

fiddling - ठीक करना, हेरा फेरी करना, कठिन कार्य, व्यर्थ समय गँवाना

This he picked up and, just noticing that there was writing on it, put it into his pocket, and subsequently into a vase on his mantelpiece. I was at his house not very long ago, and happened to pick up the vase and turn it over to see whether there were any marks on it, and the paper fell into my hand.

vase - गुलदान

mantelpiece - अग्निकोष्ठ के ऊपर का ताक, अग्निकोष्ठ के ऊपर का ताक

The old man, on my handing it to him, told me the story I have told you, and said I might keep the paper. It was crumpled and rather torn, so I have mounted it on a card, which I have here. If you can tell me what it means I shall be very glad, and also, I may say, a good deal surprised."

crumpled - सिकोड़ना, ध्वस्त होना, गींजना, सिलवटें डालना[पडना]

mounted - घोड़ा, आयोजित करना, चढना, पर सवार होना, चिपकाना, आलंबन, पर्वत

He gave me the card. The paper was quite legibly inscribed in an old hand, and this is what was on it:

legibly - in a legible manner

"When I grew in the Wood

I was water'd wth Blood

Now in the Church I stand

Who that touches me with his Hand

If a Bloody hand he bear

bloody - पूर्ण, बहुत ही, भयंकर, पूर्णतः, निर्दयी, फालतु, बहुत ही

I councell him to be ware

Ware - सामान, उत्पाद, सौदा, फूँक देना

Whether by night or day,

But chiefly when the wind blows high

"This I dreampt, 26 Febr. Ao 1699. John Austin."

"I suppose it is a charm or a spell: wouldn't you call it something of that kind?" said the curator.

charm - सुंदरता

"Yes," I said, "I suppose one might. What became of the figure in which it was concealed?"

"Oh, I forgot," said he. "The old man told me it was so ugly and frightened his children so much that he burnt it."
