PA TRUE GHOST STORY
LTHE OLD WOMAN IN THE QUEER
DRES3 UNDER AN OAK TREE.
the Always Appeared to Announce a Ap
proaching Death In the Family She Wh
rrobftbly a Bcrrant Who Had Been Foal
1 Dealt With In Ancient Day.
"Everybody laughs In thoM day At
the old story of tho Irish banshee," Mild
gentleman of national reputation late
ly na ho chatted with a friend or two
in tho ofllco of tho Continental, "audi
am not Baying but that it was but a bu
Ejrstitlon after all, though thcro is a
ttlo thing connected with my family
that ii a strange coincidence, to call it
"Onco, when Z wai a boy, I woke tip
daring the night weeping bitterly, and
when my mother came to my bedside I
told her that I hod droamed that a queer
ly droMod old woman had como to mo
f wider a largo oak tree and had warned
no that my brother Leonard, who was my
senior by several yean, was going to dto
Tory soon. I noticed then that instead
of calming my fears my mother listened
to tno without nnvintr a word, and nrca-
gently I saw that she, too, was crying as
hard as I was. I asked what was tho
matter, and though sho put mo off I did
not forgot tho strango effect on her that
my dream had produced.
"It could not hnvo been a week after
that that my brother camo in ono after
noon from school and said ho was going
to join a party of young pooplo in a
sleighing excursion to tho noxt town.
My mother was very unwilling for him
to go und confessed to nil sorts of ncrv
I out fears, very unllko her usual calm
! nnd self reliant self, but my brother
insisted and nt last went off, followed
by my mother's anxious eyes. Within
three hours wo received a telegram say
ing that ho had been killed by tho horses
attached to tho sleigh becoming friaht-
!cnod, and, running away noar a railroad
track had thrown my poor brother un
der tho wheels of n train.
"When his mangled body camo homo,
my mother mot it, saying to her sister,
who was visiting nt our houso for tho
day: 'I know it, Fanny. II. hero saw
hor tho other night, ' and for a long
U timo I wondered who the 'her' referred
to could bo. I was nearly grown when
X again saw tho old woman of my boy
hood dream. I was about togroduatont
our homo uulvorsity und was studying
bard for tho final examinations and wan
lttiug up lato ono night reading over
somo questions in mental philosophy
when I dropped off to sleep in my chair.
"Then I droaniod of standing once
moro nudcr a largo oak tree, which was
particularly marked about tho bark by
ring about throo feet abovo the ground.
M Hero I was, facing an old woman in a
W servant's dross of tho thirteenth or four
Sw teenth century, I should iudiro. and this
old woman was tolliug mo that I would
soo my futhor no moro in life, I was a
good deal worried over this dream, re
membering my former ono nnd its trng
io sequence, but had ceased to think of
it in tho hurry nnd nnxiety of tho ex
aminations, when ono day old Professor
D. called to mo oh I was passing from
ono classroom to another nnd asked,
H., isn't your father in Switzerland?'
"I replied that ho was, for his health
hod failed so nlarmlngly for months
post that ho had been ordered abroad
and had been rapidly getting woll in
tho mountains of Switzerland. Ho had
recently joined tho English party in on
expedition to Mont mono and had writ
ton in iluo spirits rcgordlug tho trip.
Professor B. said no more, but I camo
across in a few minutes a uowspapcr
containing an account of an American
who had boon killod by falling down a
CTOYOsso In tho Swiss Alps.
"No pari loulors were known or given
by tho papor, but I knew oh, yes, I
know that tho American was mv father.

BIGQArVS DRESS .SUIT.
tho Thrifty Farnclllln Who Walked Rather
Titan l'ny it l'rnnjr.
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
commons, lovco dress or uniform is
worn by tho guesw, I was onco tola a
fanny story of tho into Joseph Biggar,
tho thorny tempered deformed littlo ba
con merchant who was tho aristocratic,
rcflucd Parnoll's first ally nnd for somo
timo his only follower in parliament.
Biggar was not n poor man, but ho
was a thrifty one, nnd ho hated tho idea
of spending moucy on a court dress.
Yet Mr. Parnoll 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 suit in which to go to
dlnowith tho speaker. Tho man who
told mo tho story, anothor member who
was not dining officially that night
was in tho habit of going homo with
Biggar on tho top of tho last tram
thoy lived near each other out Lambroth
way somowhero and on this night tho
quaint littlo form of Biggar appeared in
his smart, trim dress, sword, pasto but
tons and all, without oven an overcoat,
to go homo, as usual.
Ills companion remonstrated, but in
vain, nor would Biggar oven consent to
rido as far as tho tram would hnvo taken
him, but got down, as was his custom,
at tho oxtrcmo point to which a penny
conveyed him nnd walked tho street
thonco to his rooms. Ilia companion
went so far oh to offer to pay tho oxtra
penny out of his own pocket, but Biggar
refused sternly. Ho was savago at tho
foolish expenso to which ho had already
gone and would not havo even a penny
moro mado of it
A man capablo of such indiffcrenco to
oostumo has n right to remonstrato
about fomiuino attention to dress, bnt

Horse Can Count.
A Russian doctor has been experi
menting to find how far somo domestio
animals can count Tho intelligence of
tho horses as shown in mathematics,
seems to surpass that of tho cut or tho
Tho doctor found a horso which was
ablo to count tho milo posts nloug tho
way. It had bceu trutucd by ibt master
to stop for feed whenovcr they bad cov
ered 5 vents. Ono duy tlioy tried tho
horse over a rood whero three false milo
posts had boon put in between tho real
ones, and, suro enough, tho horso, do
ooived by this trick, stopped for his oata
at tho end of 22 vorsts, instead of going
tho usual SB.
Tho samo horso was accustomed to
being fed every day nt tho atroko of
noon. Tho doctor observed that when
over tho clock struck tho horso would
stop and prick up his ears as if count
ing. If ho heard 13 strokes, ho would
trot off contentedly to bo fed, but if it
wero fowor Hum 12 ho would resignedly
go on working. Tho experiment was
mado of striking 13 strokes nt tho wrong
time, whereupon tho horso started for
his oats in splto of tho fact that ho had
been fed only an hour before St Louis

cendeil to his place again. Ho flourished
his baton, und ouo instrument began to

"W cannot forget," said tho man
who mOV3dfrom tho suburbs "tho vans
wo moved in nor tho men who moved
us. Tho wholo household wiu uctlvo
early that morning waiting for tho vans.
Tho main rond by which they would ap
proach ran parallel to tho street in
which wo lived nnd in plain sight Soon
uftcr 7 o'clock wo saw them coming,
thrco of them, each drawn by four
horses, nnd nil well closed up, n decid
edly orderly nnd business looking pro
cession. They Bwung urouud through a
cross street and down our street nnd
halted near tho houso at 7:10. They had
told us at tho ofllco that tho vans would
bo thcro at 7 o'clock. Inasmuch as thoy
hnd had 12 miles to como nnd it had
rained tho night beforo 7:10 didn't seem
liko a half bad bluff at it
"A man camo down and located tho
house, aud then tho two head vans camo
nnd backed up to tho walk In front At
ono sldo of tho honso thcro was n drive
way which ran back past tho rear of tho
house, with n loop thero around n littlo
oval grass plat Thcro was nono too
much room in this driveway, which was
not designed for four horso teams, but
when tho rear van camo down tho driver
swung his lenders and camo in nt it with
tho largo confldenco of n man who has n
good team nnd knows how to handle it
Ho ronuded tho oval nnd halted with
his team headed toward tho street nnd
tho renr end of tho van on n lino with
tho rear of tho honso. When tho vans
wero nil in position, tho horses wero
blanketed, and then tho men wero ready.
"Thero wero six men altogether, nnd
they wero nil powerful, nblebodied
men. Tho honso was n 2J story Queen
Anno. Tho men stripped it in two hours
nnd without nny fuss or commotion
whutover. At 0:20 tho lost padlock snap
ped on tho Inst van door, nnd tho driv
ers mounted to their seats nnd hnuled
out into tho rond again, onco moro in
line. Then nil hands settled down hi
their scats, nnd everything was ready for
tho start Tho great arks wero very'
heavy now, nnd it was no light work to
movo thom. Thcro was a littlo pictur
csquo plunging nt tho start, but they
wero good teams, every' one, and they
soon had tho vans in motion, and after
that thoy walked off with them as
though thoy wero shoeboxes on wheels.
A fow moments later wo saw them onco
moro nut on tho main road, moving now
townrd tho city.
"Four hours later wo caught sight of
them ngniu. Wo wero then on tho train
bound for tho city nnd npproachiugncar
it. Wo saw tho vans on n road nt somo
littlo distance from tho railroad They
wero ns well closed up ns a wagon train
would bo under escort in an enemy's
country and moving forward.
"Not very long afterward wo stood
on tho stops in tho land of brick and
mortar and saw tho procession, still well
closed up, appear around tho corner. They
camo up at n trot. It took n littlo moro
timo to unload than to load, but not
much. Soon wo heard tho last padlock
snap again, this timo on tho last of tho
empty vans. Onco moro tho procession
lined up, moved off und disappeared.
"Aud left us to settle. It is some
thing of n job to sottlo, as thoso who
havo tried it know, but if anything
could mnko that work seem lighter it
would bo tho exhilaration of moving iu
tho modern way." New York Sun.

'thunder' was a sheet of tin or iron

Admiral Farragut's death was duo to
tho selfishness of a woman, Rov. James

Care of Curtains nnd l'ort icrci.
When any cleaning or sweeping is in
progress, tho heavy curtains nnd por
tions should bo removed mid after being
thoroughly brushed and shaken should
bo allowed to hang in tho air until tho
rooms aro cleaned and ready for thoir
return. Heavy hangings will absorb tho
odor from cigar smoko or from any food
Which may bo cooking, nnd tho greatest

placed in position again that thero
should bo no excuse for any unpleasant
odor bolng attached to them. James
