A WITCH STORY.
The stray ] am about to tell you is cu
rious ns having been tcld by an old col
ored woman of yir, ;irii:i. a slave “before
the war." and one who can neither read
Years ago there lived in Virginia a
gentleman named McKin. who was great
ly respected by all who knew him. lie
was rich: he was kindly: he had the
good wishes of ail his neighbors: he was
an excellent master and a good friend.
He owned a great deal of real estate,
and among it was the finest mill prop
erty in the county. It was known as :
McKin's grist mill, and was very valu
able. He always ke] : a miller there,
and of course the miller had his men.
ami a thriving business was carried on
for years. Meanwhile Mr. McKin re
mained a bachelor and lived in the old
family mansion with his mother aiwp
sisters until the former died and the lal
ter married, and people began to say that
now no doubt McKin .himself would
However, neither maid nor widow of i
the place could flatter herself that the
bachelor's attentions were "particular."
He lived alone with his large retinue of
servants for a year, and at last aston
ished his friends by marrying a lady who
was au utter stranger to every one. a
very beautiful young woman who had
golden hair, great black eyes, a skin like
cream and a brown mole on her left
He gave a great supper to introduce
her. and she was admired by all. Her
dress was exquisite. She sparkled with
jewelry, and a magnificent cluster ring
which she wore on the middle finger of
the right hand attracted much atten
tion. It was, like all the rest, a gift
from Mr. McKin.
The host did his best. The supper was
delightful; there was a band of music
from Richmond; there were roses every
where. Mr. McKin had tried to make
to make the affair a splendid one. but
when it was over the guests began to ac
knowledge to one another that they were
disappointed. Why they could not say.
Perhaps Mrs. McKin was cold in her
manner. Some people could not help
being that. But they had not been hap
py. and in old times every one had en
joyed themselves so much at the Mo
then some one hinted that the house
servants did not like their new lady, and
liked still less her foreign maid, little
and dark and withered as an old monkey.
“No." old Phoebe, the cook, had said
to some one, "we all don’t like madame’s
maid—we all don’t like her. We got no
right to talk about de tnadame nohow.
But madame’s maid, she jes’ a nigger,
same as de rest, and we all reckon she
mighty cur'us—mighty cur’us."
The day after the party was Saturday.
Mrs. McKin professed herself weary
and remained in bed until supper time.
Sunday morning, however, she rose. As
she was eating breakfast her husband
spoke of the hour.
“We shall have to make some haste,
my dear.” he said, "in order to lie at
church in season.”
It was some time before his wife an
swered him: then she said:
“I will not go to church today.”
“I am very anxious that you should,
my dear," Mr. McKiu said. “It will be
expected of ua.”
“You can go alone.” she answered
“Alone, the first Sabbath after my
marriage!" he cried. “Oh, my dear, im
possible! See what I have bought for
you for the occasion.” And he took
from a table a small parcel, unfolded it
and handed to Mrs. McKin a beautiful
little prayer book bound in blue velvet,
with silver clasps, and her name on the
corner in silver letters. As he placed it
before her she uttered a low cry and
fainted away. The maid rushed to her
and they carried her to her room, where
thenceforward she remained. From that
moment Mr. McKin’s beautiful young
wife seemed to be bedridden. She never
left her pillow. Mr. McKin consulted
the most celebrated physicians. None of
them could discover what ailed her. Her
maid nursed her continually. Mr. Mc
Kin was not encouraged to enter the
room; he always made his wife’s head
ache when he spoke to her. Finally he
contented himself with a brief call of in
quiry every morning. He was a very
unhappy man, more unhappy than in his
Old Phoebe began to tell strange sto
ries to her friend, the housekeeper at the
“Marsy Jack mighty nigh done broke
his heart,” she would say. “I’ze mighty
sorry for Jack, but we all jes’ despises de
madam. She sick in bed all day, but
in de night I reckon she mighty well—
yes'm, she mighty well den, and she get
up and dress sheself and eat a big sup
per and go out ob de do’. Yes’m, she do.
And dat little chipmunk of a maid she
go along wid her. and dey done come
back jes’ befo’ sun up. Yes’m. we all
knows dat de libin truff,”
“ Why don't you tell your Marse Jack?’
the housekeeper asked.
“Dere ain’t nobody dast tell dat yar
to Marse Jack McKin.” said Phoebe;
And nobody did dare. But soon it was
whispered everywhere that Mrs. McKin
had a lover whom she "went to meet in
the pine woods at midnight.
But there was something else that Mr.
Jack McKin was to hear shortly. There
was trouble at his mill, and the trouble
was of a supernatural sort—the miller
and his men had seen a ghost.
One by one the men had been fright
ened away, and the miller was alone at
his post. At last he came up to the Mc
Kin mansion one day and resigned his
millership. Ee was reluctant to give his
reasons, but finally did so. The ghosts
—there were two of them—manifested
themselves every night. They were not
to be frightened away, and did mischief
to the grain and set fire to the mill in
various places, though he had always
found the flames in time to put them out.
Now they threatened to kill him if he
was not out in three days.
“lam amazed to hear such a story
from a whi^ ttuyi of intelligence,” wm
Jack McKin’* comment on the tale.
“Someone is evidently trying to fright
en you away. Remain, and on the night
they threaten to ta',e your life tho sheriff
and l.iu men shall lie with yon."
Fina'.ly the miller returned to the mill
and at dusk on the tliird day was.seen
r.live and well by people who came with
grist. When the sheriff and his n^en
came stealthily through the woods un
hour later the mill was perfectly dark.
They lighted their built ms and went
through it. calling the miller by name,
but receiving no answer, until they
found him in his own room lying on his
face, a pistol in his hand, an overturned
lamp beside him, dead. He had been
shot through the heart. There was no
living human being in the old mill, and
for a long while nobody went near it.
At lust people began to say that the mil
ler had shot himself by accident and that
the negroes had frightened him. An
other miller applied for the place and
remained three days. In fact, to cut a
long story short, the only other miller
who dared to brave the warning that the
ghost gave them all was found dead, as
the first one bad been.
The mill was soon spoken of as haunt
ed by every one. No one would work
there, and finally Mr. McKin closed it,
and it was left to itself and to the ghost.
All this while Mine. McKin remained
an alleged invalid, shut in her room all
day. watched by her maid and talked
of in whispers by her sen-ants.
No one believed McKin’s mill would
ever run again, but one day a tall, strong,
broad shouldered young fellow walked
up tiie steps of the McKin mansion,
asked to see the master, and begged to
be allowed to take charge of the grist
“I’ve heard the story,” he said, as Mr.
McKin began to explain. “I don’t be
lieve in ghosts, and they can’t scare me
anyway. I’m in hard luck, and I’m a
good miller. Trust me and your mill
shall work better than ever. You’ll do
me a service, and I'll do you one.”
In vain Mr. McKin set before him the
fact that two millers had been already
killed there in the haunted mill. The
young giant declared that he should not
be, and finally the gentleman engaged
The mill was opened and the miller
set to work. He took with him into the
mill a Bible, a revolver and a large,
r or me nrst two mgnis ne saw notn
ing. but heard noises like the falling of
heavy millstones upon the floor above
and feet upon the stairs. He had ex
pected something like this and remained
in his room reading his Bible by the
light of a shaded lamp.
On the third night, having heard the
same noises and quietly disregarded
them, his door was dashed open and a
hideous form entered. It was something
between a woman and a great bird of
prey. It wore fluttering white robes,
and had instead of hands great black
claws. It floated toward him through
the air, and behind it came another like
unto it, but smaller.
The first creature swooped downward
and made a clutch at the lamp. As it
did so he snatched his revolver from his
belt and fired, emptying all the cham
bers. The strange beings vanished with
a wild shriek, but in a moment they en
tered again. This time the largest one
made a furious clutch at the lamp. As
she did so fie lifted his ax above his
head, and with one blow severed the
hideous black claw from what looked
like a shriveled human arm; then he
hurled his Bible at the head of the
smaller fiend. Instantly screams, oaths
and horrible curses filled the air. The
strange beings vanished and silence
The black claw dropped to the table.
It was such a hideous sight that the mil
ler covered it with a cloth, that he might
not see it. He kept watch all the night,
and early in the morning Mr. McKin,
who had been told that firing had been
heard in the mill, came to make inquir
ies. The miller told his tale, and Mr.
McKin complimented him on his bra
very. Of course he was desirous of see
ing the amputated claw, and the miller
proudly drew away the cloth. Behold!
there lay upon the table, not a claw, but
a woman’s beautiful hand—aright hand,
on the middle finger of which gleamed a
splendid cluster diamond ring. At the
sight of this horror seized the miller,
and Mr. McKin seemed about to die. He
knew the hand; he knew the ling. Then,
without a word, he walked out of the
mill and homeward and into his wife’s
chamber. She was in her bed, as usual.
The maid, pale, and with a great bruise
upon her forehead, interposed to prevent
iuauame is very in, sue said.
“Out of my way, woman!” he cried
and pushed her aside.
Then, bending over his wife’s bed, but
without his usual show of tenderness, he
“Show me your hand.”
She thrust forth her left one.
“The other,” he said.
She uttered a scream and turned down
the counterpane, but there was none to
show—only a bandaged stump, from
which the hand had been severed.
The next morning the whole village
was in wild excitement, for Jack Mc
Kin, whom they all knew and loved 450
well, had gone to the graveyard and
there shot himself through the heart be
side his mother’s grave. And . the serv
ants had told their tale and the miller
his, and there was the lady’s hand, with
the ring upon it, tube seen by all.
“Bum the wretches,” a man cried, and
a band of men, both black and white,
bore down upon the McKin mansion.
They entered the door and marched up
the stairs and into madame’s room, but
there was no one there. Nobody had
seen the two women depart, but they
were gone and were never seen again,
and since that time no fool has ever en
tered the old mill and it has slowly fall
en into decay.
The lady’s hand, however, is still pre
served in spirits in the town hall, and
the old negro who acts the part of watch
man declares that at midnight it always
changes to a hideous black claw. How
ever, no one else ever witnessed this
transformation.—Mary Kyle Dallas in
PAYING A DEBT OF KINDNESS.
An Indian Brave Who Never Forgot tlie
Mercy Shown Hi* Baud.
About the middle of this century there
was a terrible uprising among the Yuca
tan I it diana. For a time they were able
to wreak vengeance on their white con
querors, ami their ferocity and cruelty
were horrible. Even so dark a page of
history as this, however, is not without
its story of kindness and mercy between
enemies. Tile town of Peto was so sit
uated in the Indian territory that it was
taken by the Indians and recaptared by
the whites many times. Once, when it
was in the hands of its rightful owners,
a number of Indian prisoners were held.
Less cruel than the savages, the whites
killed only in battle: they allowed their
prisoners to live. But provisions became
more and more scarce, and the Indians
were left to die of hunger. One day Don
Marcos Duarte, a wealthy inhabitant of
the town, was passing the house where
the Indians were and stopped, shocked
at the sight of a miserable, emaciated
“What are you doing?” he asked.
“I am eating my shoes, as you see,”
was the reply. “I am starving to death.
For twelve days we have had almost no
food. Most of my companions are dead
and the days of the rest are numbered.”
Don Marcos looked at the miserable
survivors and said, “You and they shall
live,” and he sent them food every day
and finally procured their freedom.
Whatever were the rights of the ques
tion between Indians and whites in this
case, human pity spoke first in his heart.
Some time later Peto was captured by
the Indians, and the inhabitants were
massacred. Don Marcos, with his wife
and children, awaited death on their
knees in prayer. They heard a party of
savages approaching the house, and felt
that the end had come.
The head of the band, however, sta
tioned sentinels around the house and
gave this order, “Not a hair of the head
of this man or his family is to be touched,
on pain of death.”
The family of Duarte was the only one
that was spared. The Indian who had
inspired the pity of Don Marcos was
paying his debt.
Twenty years afterward in a success
ful uprising the Indians sacked a num
ber of villages and country houses. They
retreated loaded with spoil and drag
ging with them many household serv
ants, of whom they intended to make
slaves. The chief of the expedition asked
one of them what was the name of his
“Don Marcos Duarte," he replied.
Tne chief immediately called a halt.
“How many men belong to Don Mar
cos?” he asked.
“Twenty-four,” replied the man to
whom he had spoken.
“Name them," said the chief.
Having collected the twenty-four men,
he returned to them the spoil which had
come from the Duarte house and said,
“Go home, friends; you are free.” It
was the Indian once more paying his
Why She .Reads the Last Chapter First.
“Of course 1 always read the last chap
ter of a novel first.” admitted a young
woman, “and I think it a very sensible
plan. But I read such books in two
different ways. I confess I read some
trash. When I get a novel that I con
sider in this class I read the last chapter
first. Then 1 read the next to the last
chapter, and so on until I finish the first
chapter. I find that the only way in
which to enjoy such books. If I read it
straight through from the beginning I
would never be in doubt as to the end
ing. I have read so much of this light
literature that I can always tell pretty
well on reading the first chapter or two
what the outcome of it will be.
“On the other hand, if I begin at the
end my curiosity is aroused to a lively
pitch. Here I have the unraveling of
misunderstandings and the restoration
to happiness of all the worthy people in
the book. But I cannot tell how the
doubts and differences came about. One
can anticipate the close of such a novel
near its beginning, but not its beginning
near its close. So I read the chapters in
reversed order with continued pleasure.”

Only a Score of White Rhinoceroses.
From a letter addressed to that re
nowned sportsman, Mr. Selous, it ap
pears that that curious and rare animal,
the white rhinoceros, has not yet gone
the way of the dodo and the great bus
tard, though some have ventured to give
Mr. Selous’ authority for saying that he
is extinct. It is to the occupation of
northern Mashonaland, which has kept
the native hunters to- the west of the
Umniati river, that this gentleman at
tributes the fact that in this part a few
specimens still survive the constant per
secution which in less than twenty years
has utterly exterminated them in ever)'
other portion of south central Africa.
“There may yet,” Mr. Selous adds, “be
ten or even twenty of these animals left,
but certainly not more, I think, than the
latter number.”—London News.
Wliere Crocodiles Are Found.
Crocodiles are found in Africa, Asia,
the tropical parts of Australia, Central
America and the West Indies, while the
alligators, with the exception of one spe
cies discovered soma few years since in
China, are found only in America. They
are all of them terribly destructive crea
tures. The young feed principally on
fish, but as they grow larger they attack
every animal that they can overcome,
dragging their prey into the water and
so drowning it. It has been said that
more people are killed by crocodiles than
by any other of the wild beasts of Africa.
