The Timorous Young Marquis of Waterford Won't Live in His Fine House.

    Like all true sons of Erin, the young marquis of Waterford, head of the great Irish house of Beresford, is disposed to be superstitious. He gave rather amusing illustration of this peculiarity the other day on the occasion of the birth of this son and heir, says Mainly About People. He owns a fine house in Cavendish square, which unfortunately bears the number of "13." and so alarmed was he lest this unlucky number should cast a blighting influence on the so-called happy event that he actually leased for a couple of months another furnished house in the same square where the birth took place. Young Lord Waterford, who is a nephew of Admiral Lord Charles Beresford, married a year ago the pretty daughter of the marquise of Landsdowne, now secretary of state for war.
    Curraghmore, County Waterford, his county seat, is a most picturesque place, and is haunted by a famous and most authentic banshee. The latter is said to have made its last appearance on the eve of the suicide of the late marquis, who was prompted by the intense suffering resulting from an accident in the hunting field to take his own life.
