A TRUE OHOST STORY
THE OLD WOMAN IN THE QUEER
DRES9 UNDER AN OAK TREE.

"Evorybody Inughs in thoso days at
tho old Btory of tho Irish banshee," said
n gentleman of national reputation Into
ly ns ho chatted with a friend or two
in tho ofllco of tho Continental, "nud I
nm not Baying but that it was hut a su
perstition after all, though thcro is a
littlo thing connected with my family
that in a Btrango coincidence, to call it
"Once, when I was ft boy, X woke op
during tho night weeping bitterly, and
when my mother camo to my bedstdo I
told her that I had dreamed that a queer
ly dressed old woman had como to mo
under n largo oak trco and had warned
mo that my brother Leonard, who was my
senior by sovcral years, was going to dlo
very soon. I noticed then that instead
of calming my fears my mother listened
'to mo without saying a word, and pres
ently I saw that she, too, was crying as
hard as I was. I asked what was tho
matter, nnd though sho put mo off I did
not forgot tho straugo effect ou her that
my ilrcnm had produced.
"It could not havo been a woek after
that that my brother camo in ono after
noon from school nnd said ho was going
to join n party of young pcoplo in a
sleighing excursion to tho noxt town.
My mother was very unwilling for him
to go and confessed to nil sorts of nerv
ous fears, very unliko her usual calm
nnd self rullaut self, but my brother
insisted and nt last went off, followed
by my mother's nnxlouB eyes. Within
three hours wo received a telegram Bay
ing that ho had been killed by tho horses
attached to tho sleigh becoming fright
ened, nnd, running away near a railroad
hack had thrown my poor brother un
der tho wheels of a train.
"When his mangled body camo homo,
my mother met it, Baying to her sister,
who was visiting at our houso for tho
day: 'I know it, Fanny. H. hero Baw
hor tho other night, ' nnd for a long
timo wondered who tho 'her referred
to could bo. I was nearly grown when
I again saw tho old woman of my boy
hood dream. I was about to gradnato nt
our homo university and was studying
hard for tho dual examinations and was
sitting up lato ono night rending over
sonio questions in mental philosophy
when I dropped off to sloop in my chair.
"Then I dreamed of standing onco
more under a largo oak tree, which wan
particularly marked about tho bark by
a ring about thrco feet above tho ground.
Hero I was, facing nn old woman in a
servant's dress of tho thirteenth or four
teenth century, I should judge, nnd this
old woman was tolling mo that I would
see my father no nioro in Ufa I was a
good denl worried over this dream, re
xnombcring my former ono and its trng
io sequence, but had censed to think of
it in tho hurry nud anxiety of tho ex
aminations, when ono day old Professor
B. called to mo as I was passing from
ono classroom to another and asked,
'II., isn't your father in Switzerland?'
"I replied that ho was, for his health
had failed so alarmingly for months
past that ho had been ordered abroad
nnd had been rapidly gettiug woll in
tho mountains of Switzerland. Ho had
recently joined tho English party in nn
expedition to Mont IJlnno nnd had writ
ten in lino spirits regarding tho trip.
Professor D. said no moro, but I camo
across in n few minutes n newspaper
coutainiiur an account of an American
Who had been killed by falling down ft
crovasso in tho Swiss Alps.
"No particulars wero known or given
by tho paper, but I know oh, yes, I
know that tho American was my father,
and so it proved. I told my widowed
mother of tho strongo coincidence of my
eocoud droam, and sho replied that tho
warning would never fail; thnt it had
gono with hor through her life, and thnt
hor mother hud told her that this strango
phantom hnd nlso given her warning of
ovory dlsastej; sho had experienced. Tho
oui woman, wiioover sho was, was nl
ways accompanied in her missions of
woo by tho oak treo. marked as I havo
said. Tho wholo thing is a mystery to
us, but it is true, every word of it.
"If tho thing Is something supernat
ural, nono of ns has any idea who tho
woman could havo been or why sho camo
liko n bird of ill omen to prophesy ovil
to a plain American family, sans castle,
sans legends, sans romance. And I, for
one, nm particularly Interested in why
tho oak treo Bhould havo como down to
us iu connection with tho ghost. I would
somehow hato to think that some
doughty nucestor of mlno had, after tho
playful littlo manner of tho good old
, times, put somo faithful servant to death
in n way in which an oak treo took n
pTomincntpart, but I should not bo sur
prlned if ho did; indeed I havo n sneak
ing belief thnt that is tho true explnnn-
- tlon of tho wholo thing, though I am
sorry that samo servant is so unforgiv
ing ns to tako it out ou mo by bringing
mo bad news, which, if sho'd only wait
long enough, would reach mo with pro
verbial rapidity. "Philadelphia Times.

Talking of tho speaker's dinners to
members, nt which, in compliment to
tho official position of tho host as repre
sentative of her majesty in tho houso of

worn by tho guests, I was onco told a
funny story of tho Into Joseph Higgor,

timo his only follower in parliament.
Dlggnr was not n poor man, but ho
was u thrifty one, nnd hohntcd tho idea
of spending money on a court dress.
Yet Mr. Pnrnell liked his party to ap
pear at tho speaker's dinners as assert
ing their privileges of parliament. So
Biggar undertook tho irksomo expense
of hiring a court Bult iu which to go to
dinowlth tho speaker. Tho man who
told me tho story, another member who
was not dining officially that night,
was in tho habit of going homo with
Biggar on tho top of tho last tram
they lived near each other out Lambroth

quaint littlo form of Biggar appeared in
his smart, trim dress, sword, pasto but
tons and all, without oven nn overcoat,
to go homo, ns usual.
His companion remonstrated, but in
vain, nor would Biggar oven consent to
rldo ns far ns tho tram would havo taken
him, but got down, as was his custom,
nt tho oxtremo point to which a penny
convoyed him and walked tho street
thonco to his rooms. His companion
went bo far ns to offer to pay tho extra
penny out of his own pocket, but Biggar
refused sternly. Ho was snvago at tho
foolish expense to which ho had nlready
gono and would not havo oven a penny

Tho doctor found a horso which was
ablo to count tho milo posts along tho
way. It had been, trained by its master
to stop for feed whenover they hnd cov
ered SO versts. Ono day they tried tho
horso over a road where thrco f also milo
posts had been put in between tho real
ones, and, suro enough, tho horso, do
oolved by this trick, stopped for his oats
at tho end of 23 verses, instead of going
tho usual 25.
Tho samo horso was necustomed to
being fed every day at tho ftiroko of
noon. Tho doctor observed that when
over tho clock struck tho horso would
stop and prick up his cars ns if count
ing. If ho heard 13 strokes, ho would
trot off contentedly to bo fed, but if it
wero fewer than 13 ho would resignedly
go on working. Tho experiment was
mado of striking 13 strokes at tho wrong
time, whereupon tho horso started for
his oats in spito of tho fact that ho had
been fed only nn hour before St. Louis

following day Bulow caught sight of
hor iu tho theater as ho took Ills' baton
in hand. Ho stopped tho music, held n
hurried conversation with ono of tho

cended to his place again. Ho flourished
his baton, nnd ono instrument began to
sound. Ho continued to bent tho air,
and tho instrument continued to play

THE MODERN WAY OF MOVING.
Home of It Ventures iu Noted hjr a Hubur
t nlto .tint Mated Into Town.
"W ennnot forget," Bald tho mnn
who mOv?d front tho suburbs, "tho vans
wo moved iu nor tho men who moved
us. Tho wholo household was' uctlvo
early that morning waiting for tho vnu.
Tho main road by which thoy would ap
proach ran parallel to tho street iu
which wo lived nnd in plain sight. Soon
nftcr 7 o'clock wo saw them coming,
thrco of them, each drawn by four
horses, nud nil well closed up, decid
edly orderly nnd business looking pro
cession. Thoy swung nronnd through n
cross strcot and down our street uud
halted near tho houso at 7:10. Thoy had
told us at tho ofllco that tho vaus would
bo thcro at 7 o'clock. Inasmuch ns they
hnd had 13 miles to como and it had
rained tho uight before 7:10 didn't seem
liko a half bad bluff at it.
"A mnn camo down nnd located tho
houso, nnd then tho two head vans enmo
aud backed up to tho walk iu front At
ono sido of tho houso thoro wns n drive
way which ran back past tho rear of tho
house, with a loop thero nronnd n littlo
oval grass pint Thcro was nono too
much room iu this drivowny, which wns
not designed for four horso tennis, but
Whon tho rear van camo down tho driver
swung his leaders nnd camo in at it with
tho largo confldeuco of n man who has n
good team and knows how to handle it.
Ho rounded tho oval nnd halted with
his team headed toward tho street nnd
tho renr end of tho van ou n lino with
tho renr of tho houso. When tho vans
were nil in position, tho horses wero
blanketed, and then tho men wero ready.
"Thero were bIx men altogether, nnd
thoy wero nil powerful, nblebodied
men. Tho houso was n 2 ' story Queen
Anno. Tho men stripped it in two hours
nnd without nny fuss or commotion
whntovcr. At 0:20 tho last padlock snnp
ped ou tho Inst van door, nnd tho driv
ers mounted to their seats and hnuled
ont into tho rond ngnin, onco moro in
line. Then nil hands settled down in
their scats, nnd everything was ready for
tho start Tho great arks wero very
heavy now, nnd it was no light work to
movo them. There wns a littlo pietnr
esquo plunging nt tho start, but they
wero good teams, every one, nnd they
soon hnd tho vans iu motion, nud nfter
that they walked off with them ns
though they were Bhoeboxes on wheels.
A few moments later wo saw them onco
moro ont on tho mnlnrond, moving now
toward tho city.
"Four hours later wo caught Bight of
them ngnin. Wo were then on tho train
bound for tho city nnd approaching nenr
it. Wo saw tho vans ou n road nt somo
littlo distance from tho railroad. Thoy
wore ns woll closed np as n wagon train
would bo under escort in an enemy's
country and moving forward.
"Not very long afterward wo stood
on tho steps iu tho laud of brick nud
mortar nnd saw tho procession, still well
closed up, appear around tho corner. They
camo up nt n trot. It took u littlo moro
timo to unload than to load, but not
much. Soon wo heard tho last padlock
snap again, this timo ou tho last of tho
empty vans. Onco moro tho procession
lined up, moved oil nnd disappeared.
"And left uh to sottle. It is some
thing of n job to bottle, as thoso who
havo tried it know, but if nuything
could mnko thnt work seem lighter it
would bo tho exhilaration of moving iu
tho modern wny." New York Sun.

tho veteran officer's want of coolness.
During tho ovening tho emperor joking
