Tales About Spooks and Such Which May
Be Taken with a Grain of Salt;'
Tt wm a lawyer-mn who told the
Washington Poet the following ghost
story; hence it must be true: "It hap
pened to a farmer who Uvea within a
short distance of Hyattsvtlle. Md.." the
lawyer explained. "There haa been a
saying for years that one of the rooms
In his house was frequented by the
ghost of an aged peddler, who died
there suddenly while staying over
night. The room had been vacated for
some time, and about a week ago the
farmer turned a few baskets of corn
upon the floor to dry. The nest day
when he was gathering In a Kind of
the fodder out beyond his barn, his wife
came rushing from the house.
"He hastened to meet her and to
learn of her trouble. The young chil
dren were trailing behind her. and from
her appearance one mlxht have thought
the buildings were on fire. It was more
than five minutes before he could calm
her sufficiently to learn that she had
heard the ghost of the departed peddler
In the haunted room and that It was
walking up and down the floor. . Tradi
tion had it that the peddler had been
pacing the floor the night he died, and
that when he returned again to the
scene of his death he always continued
This tihoat At Corn.
"There was nothing for the farmer to
do but return with her to the house and
investigate. It seemed rather out of
the ordinary that the spirit of the old
peddler should be bold enough to stalk
around In full daylight, but when he
reached the door there was the sound
of the steps, beyond doubt, and it
brought his heart well up Into his
mouth. The footfalls on the floor above
succeeded each other apparently m reg
ular order with an occasion quicken
ing of the pace as though the spirit
traveler was In a hurry to reach Its
destination. The farmer hesitated to
go up the Ptulrs and face that bold,
bad ghost, but the sight of his wife
nerved him for the attack. He made
his way up the steps and Into the room.
"In a 'moment there was an exclama
tion of wonder that added to the terror
of the woman waiting below. Then her
husband called her to come along and
see what a ghost really was. In one
comer of the room was a chicken peck
ing at an ear of corn, which It rolled
about the floor. This was the sound
that resembled the walking."
The supposed visions of the old ped
dler's ghost, which members of the
family declare they have seen at Inter
vals for a long series' of years, may
have .teen due to too much bendlag of
the back In the act of stooping, -which
one authority says will enable persons
to see almost any vision in a few min
utes, or to some other similar cause.
Men of science, however, have recently
been willing to admit that there may
be ghosts, and Professor Hudson has
acknowledged, after a careful examina
tion, that ghosts and apparitions are
real, although he does not say that
they are of other than material origin.
According to his way of thinking, the
whole world Is haunted more or less.
college, who Is a prominent member of
the American Society for Psychical Re
search, stated at a meeting In Boston
recently, at which he presided, that the
appearance of the dead had been esr
tabllshed by the work of Mrs. Sedg
wick, of England, on a scientific basis,
and It was no longer superstitious to
accept them as resting on a strong sta
tistical presumption of the truth.
A Tale from Tennessee.
This Is mentioned as an Introduction
to a strange ghost story that Is told
by a gentleman of the Bureau of Kth
nology.Jit has reference to the times of
the prlmltfve Indians, and the scene Is
on the Cumberland river. In Tennessee
county. In an Indian burying ground.
This ground Is full, as the tradition Is
handed down, with the bones of a large
number of Indians Creeks and Choc
taws who had a battle there In prime
val times. The vanquished Indians are
said to have betaken themselves to a
high cave, where they were beselifed.
When famine threatened destruction, a
passage was discovered In the rear of
the cave, which led, after many devious
windings, up through the earth and
into the light. The beselged warriors
made their way through this only to
be met at the entrance by their enemies,
and a terrible slaughter followed. Their
bodies were said to have been burled n
the graveyard adjoining.
A large farm covering this territory
was owned by a prosperous Tennesxee
an until one day In the early fall a
stranger came along the dusty highway
and stated that he wished trt purchase
the Held in w.hich the old grave yard
was situated. A bargain was struck,
and the stranger erected a houfe In the
corner of his acquired property. Some
months latter on of the neighbors
found Mm sitting near his chimney cov
ered with cuts ana bruises.
. The stranger related with some' re
luctance the story of his experiences.
He said that he had lived In a neigh
boring town all his life, when one day
a man called in at his field and repre
sented himself as his mother's great
grandfather. This- Individual ald he
had been In touch witn the ghosts, from
-whom he had learned that there was a
large pot of gold in a certain Indian
burying ground which was described In
detail as the one Jus! mentioned. He
gave directions for the finding of this
treasure, but warned the farmer that It
could be obtained only one night In
the year. In the autumn, when the Jn.
dlan ghost who were placed there to
guard It were absent from sundown to
sunrise to attend the corn dance. If
they returned and found the man dig
ging there they would kill him with a
shower of arrows. -
Had the Gold la His Grasp.
The stranger added that he had found
the locality of the treasure from the
presence of three stones that had been
described to him as sign, and that ha
had set himself to digging on the night
mentioned when the braves were to be
absent for the dance. The gold was
burled vary deep and It was already
kmc Into the nomine twilight when his
hovel struck upon a hard substance
which proved to be an earUiern pot. He
was feverish wHh excitement to obtain
the treasure before the return of the
spirits, for but little time remained to
him. He had digged the earth away,
and with perspiration streaming from
very pore, was about to lift the treas
ure from Its resting place, when he
heard loud scream not unlike the
whoop of an Indian. Immediately he
' became conscious of a number of In
diana circling about him. .. Instantly
there wa a shower of arrows, from
the midst of which he escaped with
(he greatest difficulty.
. The stranger and his caller returned;
to the part of the field where the
strange occurrence had been, and sure
enough, there was he hole In the
ground, which showed that the man
might have been digging there nearly
the whole night. At the bottom was the
Impression of a vessel such as money
might have been burled In. but every
vestige of It had disappeared.
Spirits Play tho Organ.
The following ghost story was heard
from a man who was an eye witness.
He was one of the watchers with a slok
man who wus dying with a wasting
disease. A dim light wus kept In the
room at night generally, but on the oc
casion In question there was none.
Shortly after midnight the watcher de
clared that he hud heard a hymn
played on a large reed organ In the
room, and that on looking closely he
had seen the pedals 'moving and what
seemed to be the form of a ghost play
ing the keys.
He ruthed from the room In dismay
and aroused one of the sleepers with his
story of the apparition) Moth returned,
and there wai the sound of the music,
soft and low. and In Varying keys. It
cun be imagined how their feelings
were moved upon by the circumstances
in the dead of the night and In the
presence of the sleeping mivn overcome
with his sickness. One of them sum
moned the courage to go nearer. It ap
peared that the sound of the music was
due to the wind which blew through on
open window, and In some manner fell
upon the reeds In the back of the organ.
The ghost at the keys was the product
of an excited Imagination.
THE UOKSELKSS CARRIAGE.
Here is an Argument Tending to Prove
That it is kenlly Cheaper Than the
Uorso and iWriace.
From the New York Tribune.
It looks a little appalling to a man
who hasn't kept horses that a horseless
carriage should cost say 11,000, and that
Is the averuge price In Purls for one of
thee vehicles, but what would It cost
to buy even a modest carriage? Hardly
any one would care to run a horseless
carriage more than ten hours a day,
and a b horse-power motor would be
more thuti sufficiently powerful. Yoj
have here a cost of 50 cents a day, or
113 a month. It would be under favora
ble circumstances. Indeed, that a good
horse could be ktipt In New York city
for less than $3a a. month, ar.I the cost
might be $50. The advantage In favor
of the motor carriage on this score of
running expenses is apparent.
r.ut to tegln with the cost of the
horse. To get any kind of a fair driv
ing horse as the New York horse mar
kets are at present one must pay $.'!00
or $100, and many a dealer will scoff
at these figures. To have a team at all
to be compared with a horseless car
riage, such an outfit as would enable
the owner to pretend that he preferred
a drive behind a pair of nice horses to
a ride In a horselass carriage. It would
be nmowuuury to pa-y -at least t.O down,
and to secure a choice of steeds $1,000
would not be at all an extravagant
price to pay. This Is for the horses
alone. It may be safe to add that to
have a suitable trap, with harness,
robes, whip, blankets and accessories,
It will be found Impossible to do with
much less than another $1,000.
The Difference In Cost.
To start a line pair of horses and a
carriage, then. It may cost $2,000. But
the limit Is by no means reached. It Is
a little like yachting, this keeping a
carriage. The first cost and the actual
running expenses are not all. The In
cidentals cannot be overlooked. In the
first place, not every man Is a horse
man. And even a pretty fair horseman
Is llktily to be talked over by his coach
man. This worthy has two ideas on the
subject of making money. He consid
ers It his prerogative to buy your horses
for you and his duty to have them Pick
or lame as much as possible In order
that he may gtt his commission from
his friend, the veterinary surgeon. Vol
umes could be written about the trUJcs
of the rawally coachmen that are
played In this city every day. A horse
dealer could sell horses at from a quar
ter to a third less than he does If ho did
not have to divide with a coachman.
It may be safely set down that out of
allow.: noes for real andfelgned Slcknfcs
your hrrsf will easily cost you frnm
$.'00 to $1,000 a year nnd If the coachman
does not In addition get abvut the same
amnirj out of you directly or Indirectly,
to say nothing of his wages, clothing,
etc., lie does not know his business and
should be discharged at once.
Tho Advance Is l arge.
The comparl'm then. Is grratly In
favor of the hrinrrtwis f-jrrlage. Once
bought, even at sudh a price as $1,200 or
$l,.r,00, It becomes, a known quantity,
and ihe running expenses nre Incon
siderable, especially as no coarhman In
the form of an engineer Is required.
The motors are simple thait one can
be hlaown coachman, with pleasure as
well as profit. The more one looks
Into Ihe subject, the more he Is con
vinced tha before many years have
passed a horse in New York or in any
ofher big city will be almost a rarity.
And what a difference It will make, (his
parsing of the horse! It will change the
appearance of New York's ct reets tre
mendously. One result of the Introduc-tl-Mrof
horseless carriages will be a vast
Increase In the cleanliness of the streets.
Then there ere the Infeot.Ious maladies
generated in nelghlborihoods where

Iron hoofs of the horse, the streets and
avenues of I he town would be far less

If It 1s difficult to figure out the possi

when so nvar.y Injurious elements are

kets on motor wagons, or ait least trans
ferred to tine railway and- put aboard
the cars without the aid of the costly
home labor. Then think of the costly
crops crown for tore consumption of
horses! If these fields were employed
In the growth of food for humansbelng,
what a reduction In the cost of living

a rreail' raJllr.g off In the breeding of
horses, because tbef are being replaced
every day by machinery.', The new coo-
tor l go Its; to replace tbem la many
ways more. Where formerly ; horses
were used op steamboat piers' or at rail
way stations for the raising and lower,
ing of goods, one usually sees steam
now. The smaller, handler motors will
replace thousands of such horses which
are still In use Where the service Is not
Important enough for steam. .
IIC MUVT GO.
A gosslper In the Washington Post tells
the following story: "My friend. Mrs.
U . is one of those good-natured women
who are always wanting to make other
people comfortable, 8he happened to be
In the railway station the other day when
a man she knew came In. He said he was
going to Pittsburg. Now, It happened
that Mrs. IS, whose husband Is a direc
tor, knew the conductor of the Pittsburg
train. He passed through the waiting
room Just then, and Mrs. B called to him.
Conductor.' she said, 'this Is my especial
friend, Mr. Smith. He Is going on your
train, and I want you to show hint every
attention possible.' . The conductor of
course said he would, but when ha went
away Mr. Smith turned to Mrs. II with
a sickly smile. 'I did Intend to no to
Pittsburg today, and I was in an' awful
hurry, but, on the whole, I think I'll wait
for the next train.' And he handed the
kind-hearted woman a stlp of paper. It
was a poos, but It was made out to one
Jones." . ' -
THE OLD MAI ITS CLIB.
Clever Urolloriea la itsng will's Book of
That Name, as Brought Out by a Closer
Mury Abott, In Times-Herald. .'
The Old Maids' club was started by a
beautiful girl, who did uut wish to mar
ry the man she loved because by an
analytical and arithmetical process she
had figured that there were 6,919
chances out of 6.000 against his loving
her, no mutter what his protestations
might be. She received applications
from candidates for tho club, all
through the book; and as no candidate
was eligible who was over !5, was poor,
or had not refused at least one good
offer of nron-luge, the club remained
with only one member besides the
founder, and that member solved the
riddle of how to dissolve the organiza
tion without hurting the founder's feel
ing by marrying the founder's father,
And as each candidate related a most
ridiculous story when she was on trial
the book is full of fun. The .best tale
Is, however, told by a lover who dropped
accidentally from his pocket a series of
"porsonals" for the "agony column"
of a dally newspaper, beginning:
"Dearest, dearest, dearest," and signed
"Popsy." The lover's explanation of
his hereditary passion for sending
these things to the paper, and how be
came by It, Is one of the most amusing
things In purely comic literature. I
wonder If I can tell It concisely.
II II II
The lover's father, then, who was
poor and disinterested, had a passion
like a gambler's for Inserting mysteri
ous words and sentences In the adver
tisement columns of the newspapers,
so as to give food for speculation to a
whole people. He wrote polysyllabic
unlntelllglbllltles, like Paddleplntsphe
rosedaddepold, but although "this was
an Instantaneous success. It was only
a success d'estime. People talked of It.
but they could not remember It. It had
no seeds of permanence In It. It lacked
the simplicity of real greatness."" So
the lover's father waited for something
Immortal in the way of sound some
thing with an elemental cachet to
come' and be Invented. But it came
not, until one night, as he sat brooding
by his dying fire, a sudden rapping at
his chamber door suggstod to him the
word "Olotutu!" The father filled the
newspapers, ' covered the billboards,
beggared himself in his extravagant en
thusiasm. The world was agog, fren
zied with curiosity. At last he could
bear his secret no longer, and broke It
to a friend, Marpee by name, who, to
the father's surprise, saw millions In
the scheme. For the father had no Idea
of anything but 'the ambition of holding
the key to an enigma which was baf
fling millions of people, and, as lie said,
had achieved his end. Art for art's
sake he had not worked for money."
But (Marpee got up a stock company,
got out a prospectus which went Into
a thirteenth edition before the public
saw It, and before It was decided what
"Olotutu" was to be.
II II II
"The actual nature of 'Olotutu.' "
writes the lover In his explanatory let
ter, "does not seem to have been settled
until the ninth edition, but all the edi
tions Include the analyst's report cer
tifying that 'Olotutu' contains no In
jurious Ingredients and Is far safer and
purer than any other (here there was
a blank' In 'the first eight editions In
the market.) From this It Is evident
that Marpee has made up his mind to
something chemical, though it is equal
ly apparent that he kept an open mind
regarding Irs precise character, for In
the ninth edition the blank Is filled with
'purgative, In the tenth with 'meat ex
tract.' Jn the eleventh with 'hair dye,'
In the twelfth with 'cod liver ollahd It
Is only In tho thirteenth edition that. the
final decision soi-ma to have been ar
rived at In f.ivnr 'of 'soap.' " "This, of
course, my dear Sybil," tho apologetic
lover goes on, "you already know. In
deed, 1 1 mistake not, 'Olotutu,' the
only absolutely scentless In the mar
ket,' Is your pot soap. I hope It will not
chock you too much If I tell you In the
strk'kest confidence that except In price,

SENSATIONS OF STAR VI XG.
Tha First Few Day's Suffering Is fntsass
but fcaergy Kemslns.
For the first two days through which
a strong, and healthy man la doomed
to exist upon nothing his sufferings are
perhaps more acute than in the re
maining stages; he feels an Inordinate,
unspeakable craving; at the stomach
night and day. The mind runs upon
beef, bread and other substances, but
still, In a great measure, -the body re
tains Us strength. j l, ' . '
On the third and',' fourth lays, but
especially on the fourth, his. Incessant
craving gives place to a sinking and
weakness of the stomach, accompanied
by nausea. The unfortunate . sufferer
still desires food, but with a loss of
strength be loses that eager 'craving
which lie felt In . the earlier stages.
Should he chance to get a morsel or
two of food, he swallows It with a
wolfish avidity, but five minutes afters
ward 'his sufferings are more Intense
than ever. He feels as If he had
swallowed a living lobster, which Is
clawing and feeding 4ipon the very,
foundation of his existence. .
On; the fifth day his cheeks sudden
ly appear hollow and Sunken, his body
tenuous, bis color Is ashy ftale and his
eyes wild, glassy and cannibalistic. The
different parts of the system now at war
with each other. The stomach calls
upon the legs to go with It In quest of
food; the legs, from weakness, refuse.
The sixth day brings with It Increased
suffering, although the pangs of hun
ger are lost in an overpowering lanquor
and sickness. The head becomes dlssy;
the ghosts of well-remembered dinners
pass in hideous procession through the
mind. The seventh day comes, bring
ing Increasing lassitude and further
prostration of strength. The arms hang
listlessly, the legs drag heavily.: The
desire for food Is still felt to a degree,
but It must be brought, not sought.
.The miserable remnant of life which
still hangs to the sufferer Is a burden
almost too grievous to be borne; yet
his inherent love of existence induces
a desire still to preserve It if It can
be saved without a tax on bodily exer
tion. The mind wanders. At one mo
ment he thinks his weary limbs can'
not sustain him a mile; the next he la
endowed with unnatural strength .and
If there be a certainty of relief before
him, dashes bravely and strongly for
ward, wondering whence proceeds his
new and sudden Impulse.
A GtMHlVlXOM MENDER.
Tho proprietor of a large building In
I.ondon, which contulns several fiats on
tha upper floors, suys that he never suc
ceeded in letting these apartments readily
until he employed a very eloquent Irish
woman as his agent. Several times the
graceful "blarney" of this excellent wo
man has secured a customer where a lens
gifted ugent would probably have failed.
"Klnvaynlences Is It?" says she to ap
plicants for the rooms. "Sure It's hot an'
could wnther at. all hours of the day an'
nolKht uurayable to yer tasht?, an' scul
lery coppers that wud make a washer
woman of the (Juune of England by pre
ference!" "Are the rooms comfortably warmed?"
asks an Inquirer.
"Ar. they warmed?" with a surprised
air. "Sure wld a slotKht turn o' yer wrist,
ye have any degray of temperature known
to the therlmether!"
"Hut the staircase. Is that easy to go
"Now, thin," says tha eloquent agent,
as If she were reaching a climax of all tha
wonderful advantages ; of the building,
"the Btalrcuae is that alsy that when
youre goln" opp ye would well balave that
ye' re comln' down." The Intending ten
ant usually capitulates at this point.
THESE WERE FRIGID.
Compilations of Cold Winters of the Past
. and What Happened During Tbem
Cheerfnl Heading For the Dog Days.
From the Philadelphia Press.
In 1294 the Cattegat was covered with
Ice seven feet thick. Batteries of artill
ery were moved to and fro on the strait.
In 1S44 the cold was to severe In Hol
land that wine was cut In blocks and
sold by weight. In 764 the Black sea
was frozmtto a distance of 60 miles from
shore. The Hellspont and Dardenelles
were frozen, and the sea of Marmora
was passable for cavalry. Bare Arctic
birds have 'been tf riven to England by
the cold weather. In the Cambridge-,
shire Fens lately a specimen of Brun-'
nlch's guillemot and four Little Auks
were captured. At a village near
Driffield, Kngland, a snow house, 24 feet
long by 14 feet wide, has been construct
ed, and fifty persons are entertained to
tea therein, a dance being afterward
held. In in:' 3 the Baltic sea was frozen
over, and during three months travelers
passed from the continent to Sweden on
the Ice. Heavy wagon trains were sub
stituted for the trading vessels. In 1063
the Itlver Thames was frozen over for
fourteen weeks. All the rivers of the
continent were frozen, and even south
of the Alps the Po and many other
streams were blocked with Ice. In 14C0
the Baltic again froze over so as to per
mit travel on the Ice. In Germany deer
nought the towns for refuge from
wolves. Packs of wolves came Into
the.cltle.'and attacked the people In the
streets. In 16S8 the bays and Inlets
of North Europe froze over early In De
cember. Charles X of Sweden, crossed
the strait to Denmark with his wholo
army, Including the artillery, baggage
and provision trains. In 1740 the
Thames was frozen for eleven weeks.
Forest birds almost all perished, and
trees were split by the frost. The har
bor of Barcelona froze oyer, and navi
gation was suspended in the Greek
Archipelago on account of the danger
from floating Ice,
In 1.194 all the rivers of North Europe
were frozen before Christmas. The Cat
tegat froze, together with a large part
of the Baltic. The sea at Venice froze
so that during three weeks no boats
could be used. The Tlbfr froze at Rome
and men crossed It on the Ice, a thing
never known before nor since. In 1433
the Thames and all other rivers of Eng
land and Scotland frosetover; the flelne,
Rhine and Danube were closed to navi
gation' early In December. The Dar
danelles and Hellespont froze, as did'
many bays and Inlets of the Mediter
ranean. Ice formed In Algiers, and the
Strait of Olbrnlter was almost Impas
sable from drift Ice. While a number
of boys were sliding and skating on the
canal near Brentford, London, the
Ice suddenly gave way and half k dozen
lads disappeared under the Ice, Arthur
Barrett, one of the ' party, bravely
rescued his companions one by one. A
few moments later, while proceeding
along the towing-path, drenched to the
skin and benumbed with cold, he slipped
and fell heavily on the Ice, which broke
under him, .His comrades went to his
assistance, but failed to reach him, and
he was drowned.
On the north const of Kent, In the
neighborhood of Whltstable and Heme
Bay, an extraordinary scene was pre
sented recently. The' thermometer
having fallen to zero, Ihe sea' water was
frozen all along the shore, and In Whlt
stable Bay this Ice-bound state ex
tended from 100 to 200 yards from the
beach. The severity of the weather Is
causing the utmost anxiety among those
Interested In the oyster fishery. At
usual, some millions of the more valu
able natives have been removed to the
Hay ling Island beds for the winter, but
a large stock remains on the Whltstable
grounds, Including tha "seconds," and
experts fear that the whole of this class
have been destroyed. Great distress Is
prevalent In the town, and a fund has
been opened. ' ,
