Susquehanna, Nov. 28. "Formerly 1
was a hardened skeptic In matters f
psychic phenomena," said a prominent
Husquohanmi county lawyer the other
day, "but I was converted by an exper
ience that has made mc an ardent be
liever In thlnga supernatural. One
night last winter I was on tny way to
Towanda on horseback. While passing
along a stretch o woods, I suddenly
Haw, Just ahead of me, the figure of a
man. He seemed to bo surrounded by a
fierce fall of snow, which was appar
ently hurled against him by a terrific
Kale of wind. As the man struggled
along feebly against the storm my
horse, stopped Middcnly, and pitched up
Its ears, and pawed the Kiound Impa
tiently. All aiottnd except In the smull
space surrounding the figure of the
man, was clear and calm. T rubbed
my eyes and made up my mind that
the man was bomu drunken fellow on
his way home from the village, and
that the storm was an optical Illusion.
r called out to him and no answer
came back. I shouted again, and ngnln,
louder each time, but the struggling
llguro gave no response.
"At last the man fell as If exhausted,
and the fierce gale whirled the snow
around him. Knowing that If the fallen
man was drunk he would freeze to
death If I left him lying there. I Jumped
from my horse and run to help him
up, Intending to take hint to the nearest
place of shelter. As I reached the pros
trate figure I saw the face was turned
upward. I started back and almost
fell fainting in the snow. The face was
revealed in the darkness as clearly as
if It had been broad daylight, and it
was that of my brother, who lived In
Dakota. AVhen I recovered from the
shock and turned again to the body, it
was gone. There was not even an lin
piesslon in the snow wheie it had lain.
Bewildered and much unstrung, I final
ly mounted my horse and rode on.
"I gradually recovered my compos
uie, and at last convinced myself that
1 had been the victim of a strange and
unaccountable lialluclnation, but a
strange foreboding of evil haunted me.
A few days later I leceived a letter
from the town In Dakota where my
brother was, which informed me that
he had been caught In a blizzard while
on his way to his cabin and was frozen
"The letter gave the date and time
of his death. It had occurred at the
very hour and night that the appar
ition of the man struggling against the
storm appeared to me on the Towanda
load and I recognized my bi other's
face as he lay dead In the snow."
