THE CASTLE OF GHOULS.
I was travelling, with my friend, thro'
Silesia visiting the different places of
You are travelers who seek all that

lay an old, gray-headed man, to whom
we had related some of our adventures.

"It is not for us to boast, beyond saying
that we always. h'avVhad nerve for what
ever we have encountered."

with a sharp look.
"We never heard of it till now."

VThere are those, who' say -it is!" re
plied. the old man, nodding his Lead 3vith
a mysterious air.
"It certainly has an ominous name
"It was not given to it without reason,
you may be sure."
"Well,'-' said my friend, "I have no
fear of anythinf uneanhly because I
have no faith irf ghosts but tnere are
such beings as robbers, and in some of
these old, deserted castles and towers, I
donbtnot they find refuge and play their
cunnin off upon the ignorant and super-
"I believe you, sir; but I believe more
that some of.ahese places are at times
tenanted by beings from another world."
; My friend and I exchanged glances
with incredulous smiles. We finally ter
minated the conversation by the declara
tion that 'we would visit the Castle of
Ghouls, and the old man made us promise
that we would write to hirn and give him
an account of our adventures.
It vai just at the dawn of a beautiful
summer's morning, that we set. off, with
a guide, to visit the-Castle of Ghouls.
We had ten miles-to ride, over a hilly
country, and then about a mile to toil up
a steep acclivity on foot. By ten o'clock
we saw it high ibove us, looking as wild
and romantic as heart could wish. It
formed the apex of a steep, rocky hill,
and seemed as if pearched among the
clouds. The last approach to it was by
artificial steps, for so sharp 'was the as
cent that the foot could not have kept its
holu without. " It was built of h iavy stone
on the edc-e of a cliff, and on three sides
had a sheer descent of five hundred i'eet,
to where a mountain stream went brawl-
ing rd foaming over its rocky bed. The ,
foundation stones wereimmense, and the
whole massive structure, ' caused us Jto
wonder zi thejabor and skill -.displayed
in bringing them up such anTawful-bight
and forming them into' an ; edifice destin
ed to endure for centuries.' ' There was
no r-ioat around the walls', and no ' need
of any for with its hugh gates, its port
cullis dropped, and its garrison on the
alert, ten thousand men could not have
We passed through a gloomy arch, a
small ante-room, and entered a spacious
hall, where there was everything to re
call the days of feudalismfor the cas

which the superstitious peasantry had
given it, really belonged to a living count,

order. 1 ' " . - . ,
From the moment we .entered it, till
we had spent hours in passing through
ihe different apartments, we were so
deeply interested in looking at the antique
furniture, the old-fashioned hangings,
and the ancient implements .of war and
the chase that wecorapletely lost sight
of the terrors supposed to be connected
with the place.
. "Well, I fancy, we have seen all there
is above ground worth looking at, and
now suppose we go below !" I said to the
guide, as we at length"returned from our
explorations to'the grat hall.' ' r ""
. , "Ko,V said the fellow, shaking his head ,
"I shall not go below J1? :: .
"Why not?" ' r ; ' .
"I dori'twant to tempt the devils!"
.'Oho ! so the devils are down there,
are they ?"
"In the daytime." '
"But where are they in the night ?"
'All over, the castle."
"bid you ever see any ?".
"I never spent the night here, anU

Why, it seems you have become timid
all of a sudden! When we asked for a
guide to conduct, us to the Castle of
Ghouls you were sent-to us ; and when
we inquired if you had any fear of visit--ing
thehaunted ' place, Vyou laughed in
derisiuni and led ,us to" believe you " were
above the superstitions of your class !" .
"If I hadn'tperhaps you wouldn't
have employed me," said the fellow,
"You deceived then ?"
"I have fulfilled my agreement in
bringing you here and showing you over
"But not all over it we have not seen
the vaults and the dungeons."
"And if you take my advice you won't
"But suppose we decline your advice ?"
"Then you can go down, if you choose
but I don't r'.-.j -i7
What are you afraid -of ?", ii I .
"Thcjy say the're are strange sights and
r 'Everybody who, knows." , j; ' ,v
"But why down there any more .than
up here ?" ' :
"Because the demons love tle dark
it is the same up here in the night."
"And who ever saw or . heard any
' "Hundreds of people have heard
strange noises here in the night, and
have seen the castle lit up, when nobody
was here, with different colored lights."
"Of course somebody must have been
hre, or they could not have been here
to see themselves!" J '
"They saw from a distance ; they didn't
dare to come - here they might ?, hate
been carried off, or torn to pieces, or
made blind, or "'" '" ' 1 : ' v ' - ' " "
.-'Have -you discovered the trick !"
chimed in ray friend, with a laugh.'
"What say you, Bentley ?" he continued
turning to me and speaking in English:
"shall we leave this fellow out and go
down by ourselves ? I am anxious to see
and hear some of these wonderful things,
though I certainly expect to be disappoint
ed." ; ' : - 1
We were standing in the great hall,
with the afternoon sun strearaiBjr in, in
golden lines, through the high, narrow
windows ; but as he ceased speakiDg, and
before I had time to reply, the room sud
denly became as dark as twilight, there
was a sharp,; blind icgVfiash, followed in
stantly by a clap of thunder that, made
the whole rastle 'tremble.: These were
all natural' manifestations for' a storm
had suddenly collected, and a cloud pass
ed over the sun but the effect was a
little startling, I must confess ; and both
my friend and I made a quick step back
ward ; while the guide, with aery for
mercy, fell upon his kness, jani,,uttered
an Ave. Maria.,.- f ..-4 - r , ,
- Now; it is a fact let the; philosophy of
it be what it may tha t if; at the moment
of calm, unswerving courage, the nervous
system,' by any means, receives a shock
sufficient to- abate full confidence and let
into the mind a single doubt, .that doubt
may become the germ of an absolute ter
ror, and cause the individual to display
a cowardice that. neither he nor ..his
friends would have believed possible as
witness the brave soldier, who has risen
4. ... , t
high by pure merit, most shamefully dis
gracing himself in some unfortunate hour
of trial. In some slight degree this was
the effect of the sudden. storm upon us
at least I did not second my f.-iend's prop
osition of goingdown intpthe vaults and
dungeons and he did not repeat it. 1--.
IThe.storm. that had pollected .Jsp j sud
denly, soon became one of great fury
the wind'-howling-and-shrieking around
theloheljf' casriethe lightning' flashing,
the thunder tra?hing, and the rain falling
in torrents.'-: ; Was it; fancy, that,;i during
the lull in the tempest,- gave'to our ears
the strange noises of moans cries of dis
tress, the clanking of chains, the creak
ing of hinges, the banging of .doors?
We each believed we heard those sounds,
and my friend and I exchanged glances
of wonder increasing to awe Awhile our
timid and superstiticus guide shVunk back
appalled, threw himself down in a cor
ner, and buried his face in his hands.
--What is it?" said my companion, in a
serious ione ; and at that" moment ; a viv
id" flash of lightning made'1' his face Lok
, ,'fHearen knows!'': L answered ; . .4it
certainly is not the -Triad. !3' iur-. .
' .'The' storm raged for hours one of the
most fearful I ever witnessed and night
dr,ew.orj wjth scarcely any abatement in
the - tempest. The . whole atmosphere
seemed surcharged with electricity. It
came down from the heavens in forked
chains, shivering trees and splitting rocks,
and at times it danced and crinkled over
the breast-plates, and morions, lance
heads, spears and battle-axes that hung
around the walls, producing most singu
lar and ', startling ..effecp.;. There was a
good deal nf wind among the clouds that
kept them rushing to and fro, like armies
charging and retreating on the field of
battle.' The ratnt'meantime; came down
like a'deluge, pouring a thousand streams
down the mountain's sides," and filling the
regular water-courses and .valleys with
impassable. torrents. With courage, or
without with demons, robbers, or unten
anted halls without food or lights we
saw we were shut in there for the night
for it was almost certain death to at
tempt to gain the plain below in the dark
ness that had begun to gather- over the
scene, ere we relinquished the hope of
the storm passing onward by daylight.
When our guide perceived the night
coming rapid!yon, he started up in terror,
and declared he must escape from .that
awful place. We told him the result
would be death., 'J.t; ,: ;.,.'
"Better death with. God and nature,
than 1 with the. spirits3 of the damned !"
was his reply. , , - ' '
, We used everything, but force to Re
tain him. He : would go, ' He; y went.
Was it fancy again, or did we! hear a
wild, hollow laugh as he plunged into the
storm? Three days after, his .swollen
and putrid corpse was found in a meadow,
where the subsided waters had left it.
In that lonely castle, on that dark night,
in that terrific tempest, without food,
without light, and with the strange noises
I have mentioned, at longer or shorter
intervals, sounding-in our ears, it will
readily be perceived our situation was
anything but agreeable. ',
As night was now setting in fast, and
we had light for the gloomy hours to fol
low, 'we proceeded ' to arrange some, old,
quaintly-carved, chairs," with' cushioned
seats, on which to rest our weary limbs,
and perhaps to sleep; and having, done
this, we stretched ourselves upon them,
in close proximity to each other.
The storm now for the first time
seemed to be passing onward the light
ning was les3 vivid, and the thunder,
though still heavy, gradually .grew more
distant, while the wind blew less fiercely,
and tbe rain began to slacken, leading us
to believe that the worst was over. For
the last half; hour, too, .with the excep
tion of the wild laugh at the departure of
the guide ;;we had heard nothing of the j
strange noises which had caused us so
much wonder, and . we began to indulge
the hope that, -after all, we -should j have
a peaceable night of it, and we gradually
fell into a deep, heavy sleep. "-
I vas awakened, I cannot tell how,
with a sensation, rather than a conscious
ness, of some strange, living body .being
in the apartment. I raised myself upon
my elbow, and looked around upon the
inky darkness, but could perceive no ob-
ject whatever and 1 was.jn . the act of
mentally chiding; myself,- for. my foolish
fancy, when a blinding flash-of jightning
shohelin through . the .high, narrow win
dows, arid for anvinstanf-rrevealed to my
astonished gaze the figure of a. man, in a
coat of mail, with.helmit on and yispr
down, such as might. have , stood there
some hundred of-years before. I was
startled, 1 will not deny it. ' I thought of
the place, and the strange noises and the
strange tales I had heard, and could not
decide in my own mind, whether I had
caught a glimpse of an earthly. being, or
an intangible apparition. A double dark
ness followed the bright flash, and I -was
left to the horror, of. uncertain . specula
tion; ' . : . . ' ...
Something, however, I felt certain I
had seen something belonging either to
this "world or the. other and with a cold
thrillthat more nearly approaohed terror

"In- the hame;of Gcd,' who !are you ?
and vvhat d y6u seek?" i i -i -r'T -k: .-j .
-There ;wa"s a momentary, silence, fol
lowed by a loud, wild, hollow laugh, like
that 1 had heard at the departure of the
guide. ' ' '
'"What is it?" cried my friend, in ac
cents of fear. '
As he spoke, there was a heavy, clank
iLg sound, as of a man walking in armor;
and a moment or two after, my compan
ion shrieked out: " '
"Help f Bentley help ! ? somebody is
strangling me !'r : : ".
The sound of a fearful struggle; and
another : hoarse laugh'1 from the- demon,
reached "me at the ' same "caoment. Now
really -'terrified !and oewlidered,T impul
siVel, '1 may -Vay"' instinctively, sprung
forward la'the darkness, and found my
self in contact with the : unknovvnl He
was tangible at least; and with; this
knowledge my courage returned ; and 1
grappled with him as with a human foe,
and the three of us rolled over and over
on the floor together At last I got him
by the throat, and held on like a tiger,
and gradually choked the strength out of
him ; and then my friend and I were able
to manage him and keep him harmless
the rest of that long, dreary,- night.
, Daylight came at last, and showed our
demon to be a raving maniac ! . ,
, Thus we solved the modern mystery of
the haunted castle the Castle of Hohen
berg misnamed, the Castle, of Ghouls
How long he madman had lived there,
keeping up his nightly clamor, and how
he had obtained his food, we never ascer
tained and never cared to know; enough
for us that we had for the time laid the
spirits of the place !
We kept our promise to the old man,
and wrote him a thrilling narration of
our adventures ; but the conclusion was
doubtless widely different from what he
had expected, and perhaps desired.
SUCH A RATTER.
A correspondent of the Brookly Times
furnishes that paper with an amusing ac
count of jhis ; experience with a terrier
which he bought from a 'dealer on the
recommen'datioa-tbat he-was "such a rat
ter. '-rHe; Had softie trouble at first in
getting a rat'on'whick'trj-'try his "pup.2'
He' succeeded at r last; and says t;vo-; !
-'However the next day r was' fortunate
enough to so secure from - a boy in the
market a fine old-line bob-tailed rat, whos
furious efforts to chaw everything within
reach gave promise of glorious sport for
Nip. Took the rat' home, called in my
dog, and told my wife that if she want
ed to see the way that terriers did rats
to come down in the basement- She
came down and shut the door, jusr in
time, too ; for as soon as Nip saw the
rat, he, Nip, my ratter, for which I paid
the old gent $5, made a most unmistak
ably, cowardly movement towards the hall
Wife,.. or. a chair, said, the dog did not
appear., to see the rat.
Told-wife to keep her oreath. Thought
I would not give Nip any reason" for not
seeing the rat again ; so I tied the string
that held the ral to dog's hind , leg. 1 He
saw the rat that time, and jumped, on the
chair by my . wife. Wife laughed and
shoved him off. . Tried the stove next.
Got off the stove without being shoved.
. . . . . . t .... i
The rat, however, being .an. old stager,
and not being used to such treatment
made a demonstration on Nip's rear, and
I dont believe ' little Flora Temple ever
made better time in the same limits than
that dog. and rat made around the room.
First heat, dog had the lead closely
followed by the rat. who, on striking the
half mile pole foot stool in tbe corner
broke badly; in fact, nearly broke his
back;' and before 'he could be brought
down, (he' was sliding" on -his back) dog
led him by the whole length of the string
Did not step' for wind, but started on the
second heat. Got off well together, tied
and went fairlv round neck and tail, un-
til they reached the judge's stand (wife
standing on" a chair)" 'againstwhch the
dog brought up solid," bringing the judge
down in a style pre-eminently sudden, if
not dignified. That" heat was. decided
against dog, you may bet, and it was on-.
ly after much, persuasion , that the judge
would again take her stand. '
. -The; third heat may b.e aptly termed
a dead heat. - They got off well apart ai
the dog conveniently could, and sailed
lively until just as they struck the Ia.'t
quarter, when the rat, which run about
as well on his back as on his legs, shied'
the track, and got ratherqueenly wound
around a table leg. Dog kept on aa fast'
as the s'Ting1 and length of his hind leg
would let him. . .On raisifig the rath
was found, to be" noncompos, .totally de
funct, in fact, dead.'. Nip was , not. bet-
.Wifesaid -that'-dog coaldnt kill mice;
Told her. that he tad certainly killed
that rat ; hut on viewing the. feat in sst
entific light, I must confes3l did not feet
quite satisfied wiih. jthe-; performances cf
my pet, and the next morning, gave hirn'
aviay to a milkman, who' wapled a rat

tions -of the vermia , I have not been
able to ascertaixijWhich left him firsrrthe
