THE HAUNTED ISLAND.
II V JOHN II. WIJITSON.
A j:irty of hunters were slowly pick
ing their devious way anion"; the bowl
ders of a camon, at the base of the
Kocky Mountains, on the evening of a
pleasant day in the early autumn of
i85.". The sun was rapidly sinking in
the West, and the gray shadows of eve
ning were settling over the earth, shroud
ing the canyons in a pall of gloom, and
casting a spectral haze over the giant
peaks, except where here and there
their tojtt wero tinged with crimson
The party numbered three, two of
whom were bronzed and hardy trappers;
men who had been inured to the wild
life of the mountains, deserts, and wil
derness from their earliest youth, and
who, in consequence of their constant
contact with the wildest phases of
human existence and the isolation of a
hunters life, were fair representatives
of that class of men who form the con
necting link between savage and civil
ized life. The other was a young man,
of perhaps twenty-five years, and with
the broad intellectual brow that bears
I lie stamp and seal of civilization. One
could tell at a glance that ho was not an
ordinary hunter, and would reach the
conclusion that he -was here rather for
sport and excitement of the chase than
anything else. He was, in reality, a
well-to-do merchant of San Francisco,
who, longing to escape the distracting
din and bustle of business and the suf
focating heat of the hot season, had en
gaged the two trappers, who were old
aequainfcmces, to accompany him in a
pleasure jaunt to the Hocky Mountains,
and we now find them near the base of
this noble range, and directing their
steps to a line of timber a short distance
in advance, and which fringed the banks
of a river, known as the Gold Stream,
probably because no gold had ever been
discovered anywhere near it.
The namo of the j'oung merchant was
Charles Knowland and his guides were
Black Jien and Shasta Joe, two famous
As they neared the fringo of timber
Black Ben turned partially and, address
ing Knowland, said:
"Ilev you ever heerd o' the Gold
"No, I have never heard of his ghost
ship. What of him? Is the stream
supposed to be haunted?"
"Supposed, the deuce! There's no
supposin' about it; when Black Ben sees
anything, he ginerally sees it I tell you
there's a critter as stays somewhar
around an island about half a niile down
this yer crick, an' a'uiost every night he
comes out an jLst makes things bile.
There :iin't a trapper or an Injun in the
country but's afeard to go near the island
on account o the thing, and it a'most
makes my blood run cold -whenever I
think o' it"
"What -is it like?" queried the young
man, in a half-serious, half-jocular
"See here," said the trapper, turning
Upon him, angrily, "hlebbe you think as
how I He about this?"
lJeg pardon, Ben," replied the young
man, seeing his mistake; "but I am
-skeptical upon the subject of ghosts; in
fact I don't believe there are any such
things. I think everything of the kind
can be accounted for in a natural man
ner, and as the result of natural causes.
But what appearance does this ghost, or
"Well," said Ben, slightly mollified,
"as I said afore, it stiys around this yer
island, though no one ever seed it on
the island itself, for it allers comes up
in the middle of the river, and gives a
yell, like ten thousand Blackfeet howlin'
all at onct You could on'y see its
shoulders an' head, for the rest of it was
under water. It lied a face suthin' like
a human face, but all over hairy, an' on
its hairy-lookin head war two horns
that stood right straight up, an' as white
as snow. When I seed it, the tarnal
thing hopped right up within ten feet o'
me, and let off the most ear-splittin' yell
ye ever heerd. Why, I could feel the
flesh creep on my very bones, an' my
hair stood up till it a'most lifted my cap
offen my head. I couldn't move hand or
foot, until the thing dlv under water
:igin, an' then I was so weak I could
Xnowland felt like laughing, but the
serious tone and lugubrious expression
upon the face of Black Ben warned him
that, if he wished to retain his friend
ship, he must not be too reckless- in
scoffing at the trapper's superstition.
He knew that Black Ben had seen some
startling sight, but which, if the mystery
were solved, would le robbed of half
its terrors. However, he said in a serious
"Ben, I am greatly interested in this
account you have given me, and would
like to see this monster for myself. I
would like to have you and Joe here
accompany me to the vicinity of the
island, to-night, and we will see if we
cannot unravel this mystery."
The trappers protested against any
such procedure, lien bewailing his folly
in revealing his knowledge, and declar
ing that he would rather face a whole
tribe ef Blackfeet Knowland, however,
was firm in his resolve, and as they were
in his employ, and bound in duty to obey
him, and besides, as friends, did not wish
to lose his friendship and be accused of
cowardice, they consented to guide him
to the haunted island, and, as they veri
ly believed, to the abode of liu Satanic
They soon reached the fringe of tim
her, and finding a gully where they
would be safe from the eyes of prowl
ing savages, they kindled a fire and
roasted some juicy venison, of which
they ate heartily, for a tramp among
the mountains is one of the best of aj
petizers. They remained hero, smoking and
chatting, until the moon had risen high
above the tree tops, and Knowland's
silver timepiece, indicated the hour of
10, when, shouldering their guns, they
carefully threaded their way down
stream, in the direction of the island,
flitting like silent siwctres from tree to
tree and bowlder to bowlder. They had
traversed about a half mile, when Shasta
Joe, who was in advance, uttered a
warning "sh I" and halted.
"See yer, now!" he said, turning to the
others, "we're almost to the infernal
place, and as huntiu' ghosts is a ticklish
sort o' business, we want to keep clus
together, an' as still as possible, l'or
rard!" Again they moved on, and soon came
in sight of the stream, gleaming in the
moonlight like a bed of molten silver.
They could see the low, black island in
the centre covered with low bushes, and
concealing themselves where they could
command a good view of the island, the
stream and either shore, they began
their silent watch, continually scanning
the river and conversing only in the
lowest whispers. The tedious hours
wore slowly away; midnight drew near,
and still they waited and watched.
"It's about time the critter was a
comin', if he's agoiu' to," whispered Ben.
"He generally appears near the shud
der o' that tree, leanin' over the water."
The words had scarcely left his lips
when the waters near the position indi
cated were violently agitated, and a
huge, hairy form in human resemblance
rose out of the water, its two horns
gleaming ghostly whito in the moon
light, and gave vent to a schreeching
roar that rolled over the waters like the
shriek of a fiend, and was echoed and
re-echoed among the surrounding cliffs
with a demoniacal .and startling inten
sity. The next instant the strange crea
ture, whether man, beast, or devil, sank
from sight beneath the troubled waters
of the Gold stream.
The trio seemed riveted to the spot
by a strange fascination, and it w:is no,
until the reverberating echoes had died
away, that they ventured to breathe
freely, when Ben said, with a sarcastic
ring in his voice:
"What do you call that, I wonder?"
Knowland's strained nerves relaxed
at the sound of Ben's voice, and he
answered in strangely puzzled :uid wa
"That's the most wonderful phenome
non I ever beheld."
"If s not a spirit, though, 1 reckon ?"
said Ben with a sneer.
"No, I can't believo that it is. It may
be some aquatic animal of which we
have not heard, or more probably some
miner who has found a rich 'lead' en
deavoring to frighten and prevent any
one from approaching his claim."
"I mout a knowed you wouldn't be
lieve what you seed yourself. The next
thing you'll be savin' it was an optical
delusion, and we didn't hear any noise
at all. I'll tell you, I believo it's the Ole
Boy hisself, and that we'd better git
away from this section if we want to
save our hair. The Injuns call it Devil's
Island and are as afeard of it as death,
an' they do say that whoever goes near
that Island never gets away alive.
"I don't care what the Indians say
about it," replied Knowland, "I'm not
going to leave these parts until I solve
this mystery. We can't do anything
more to-night, so we'll have to wait till
to-morrow night Have you a canoe
Bon replied that he had a good one
near their camp.
"Well, that will do; to-morrow night
rm going beneath the shadow of that
tree. If ycu will "go with me, well and
good; it not, I shall go alone."
Nothing of importance occuringwe
will pass over the intervening, time,
until the following night when wo find
our friends nearing the haunted island
in a large Indian canoe.
Finding their leader obstinate and set
in his purpose of unveiling the mystery,
the trappers resolved to accompany him,
though it should lead them into the
very jaws of death. At a little earlier
hour than on the preceding night, in
order to avoid discovery, they cautiously
approached the island, and while a dark
cloud drifted across the face of the
moon, veiling the river in shadow,
they silently propelled themselves be
neath the shadows of the overhanging
tree. They had evidently come pre
pared for any emergency, for they had
brought with them, besides their usual
weapons, an ax and a strong lasso.
Here they lay quietly, scarcely speak
ing a word, until near midnight, the
hour at which the monster was expected,
when one of the trappers grasped a pad-,
die, the other a rifle, while Knowland
seated Jriniself in the bow, with the lasso
in his hand, coiled ready for use.
They had not long to wait Soon air
bubbles began to rise slowly to the sur
face then suddenly the waters were
violently disturbed, and the hairy mon
ster rose into full view, with a horrid
shriek ujh its liiw, and scarcely ten
feet from the lxat Quick as the lightr
ning's flash, the strong coil of law) shot
from the hands of the young man and
settled upon the shoulders of the strange
creature, when, with a strong jerk, it
was drawn taut and the monster lay
struggling uikhi the water. A few
strokes of the paddle brought them
alongside, and the writhing form, which
proved to le that of a man, was lifted
within the canoe. He struggled des
perately, but the trapiers, finding they
had only flesh and blood to deal with,
lashed him fast and stifled his cries with
They now paddled with all their
might and the canoe soon grated upou
the shore opjKwite their camp, and their
prisoner, who had now ceased his strug
gles, was borne to their fire. As soon
;ls he was released and the gag removed,
he opened his lips to give vent to a
shriek, but Black Ben grasied him firm
ly by the shoulders, and the ioor fellow
cowed down in speechless terror. It
w:is then .se.ii that he was a gibbering
maniac; doubtless some trapper who
had become insane, and made the island

made his home, remaining secreted dur

watches of the night. The bonis which
