Artabanus Biffle and the Ghost
By Elfis. Patker Btttier
Atdhor of Trio's is Pids Etc
For a good many years Artabanus
Biffle, who lives on the Hill road just
west of Betzville, was troubled by the
ghost of' his great-grandfather. He
often told Uncle, Ashdod Clute that' he
would not have minded the old gray
ghost, so jmich if it had been an ordi
nary well-behaved ghost, but, as he
expressed it, the blamed old shade
was too nosey for any use. No mat
ter what Artabanus or his wife start
ed to do, the old smoke-colored shade
would float up, with his eyes like an
owl, and stand awhile "rubbering"
that is the word Artabanus used and
then be would begin telling them how
much better he could do whatever
they were doing, when he was alive.
You can imagine that it made Arta
banus mad if, just, as he had squeezed
18 joints of close fitting stove pipe
together, and was standing on top of
a chair on top of a table, and balanc
ing on one toe, with the stove pipe
held at arm's length above his head,
and the left eye full of soot, the old
misty gentleman would float up and
begin to say he wished he had that
stove pipe to put up. Often, on such
occasions, Artabanus would speak
crossly to the ghost, and then the 18
joints of stovepipe would separate
and fall on the floor, and the ghost
Often, on Such Occasions, Artabanus Would Speak Crossly to the Ghost,
and Then the Eighteen Joints of Stovepipe Would Separate and Fall
on the Floor and the Ghost of Artabanus's Great-grandfather
Would Go Over in the Corner and Snigger.
of Artabanus grandfather would go
over in the corner and snigger.
Probably there was never such a
disagreeable old ghost in this county,
and when Artabanus made up his
mind to sell the place and move into
town he saw he would have to get rid
of great-grandfather, and do it quick.
Nobody would buy the house with the
old codger ghosting around, from, cel
lar to attic, and Mrs. Biffle said she
would not move at all if she had to
take the old skeesicks with her. So
Artabanus was .puzzled. You can't put
a charge' of giant powder under a
ghost and blow it up, for a ghost
won't stay in one place long enough,
it will float gracefully off elsewhere,
and if it did happen to sit down on
the powder just as it went off, the
ghost would consider that merely a
mild form of exercise.
Artabanus though it over for about
a week and could not see head nor
tail to the difficulty, and then he con
sulted Uncle Ashdod Clute, and Uncle
Ashdod sat down on the horseblock
In front of Aunt -- Rhinorlura Betz
house and thought deeply for three
days, and then said he had the an
swer. He said the thing to do was to
boil the ehost of Great-grandfather
Biffle. He explained that the reason
the ghost could float around through
the air was because the ghost was
just a little less dense than the air,
and that it resembled steam in that
So if the ehost was boiled well it
would expand and become less dense,
and when the lid was taken off the
boiler, great-grandfather would float
up into ' the upper atmosphere - and
strike a cross-current of air. Uncle
Ashdod said he did not know .what
would become of him then. Maybe he
would blow around for ages, and may
be he would strike a cold current and
condense, and fall in the form of hail
or snow. Anyway 'Artabanus Biffle
would be rid of him. So they tried it.
Great-grandfather Biffle expanded
well enough. When they got. him in
to the wash boiler and tied the lid
on and started the fire under it, he
swelled and swelledand at 8:30 p. m.
the boiler exploded with a roar for
it could not contain the ghost any
longer. The ghost poured out of the
boiler for hours, like steam. Great
clouds of him poured out, and when
he was all out he was ten times big
ger than the house, but although his
head and shoulders waved in the up
per air, his feet were firmly planted
hi Artabanus Biffle's property. And
rtir first thine the ehost did was to
lean down and tell Artabanus and
Uncle Ashdod that if he was gping to
get rid of Ja ghost he wouldn't go
about it in that way. Then he snig
gered. TJhat sort of discouraged Artabanus,
but it set Uncle Ashdod thinking, and
he saw he had gone at the matter in
the wrong way. It stood to reason
that if you could expand a ghost you
could also contract it, and that if ex
panding would ndf'do'the job, cbh
tracting ought to. So he had Arta
banus send to the city for a Tripler
Liquid Air machine. If you freeze air
sufficiently it 'will turn into, a liquid
4.7 times as cold as. Ice. So when the
machine arrived they set it going,
and after it was running well and pro
ducing a temperature of about 1,000
degrees below zero, Great-grandfather
Biffle, came nosing around to see. what
was up, and they suddenly pushed
him into the machine. In an instant
he was liquid ghost. 'He condensed
into a dull gray liquid of about the
consistency of castor oil about half
a teaspoonful. .Artabanus immediate
ly ran and got an empty whisky bot
tle and poured Great-grandfather Bif
fle into it, and corked him up, and la
beled it "Poison. Great-grandfather
Biffle." The next week he moved in
to town, and for two years the bot-
tie sat on a shelf of Artabanus' med
icine closet as calm and cool as a cu
cumber, and all was well.
But last Wednesday, at about four
in the morning, Artabanus awoke
with a severe colic, and he made a
dash for the medicine closet to take
a swig of whisky, and in the dark he
got a-hold of the bottle of Great
grandfather Biffle, and pulled out the
cork and 'swallowed the contents be
fore he knew his mistake. It only
shows that people cannot be too care
ful about swallowing the ghosts of
their great-grandfathers, for Arta
banus immediately fell on the floor,
yelling ' with cpain. As soon as the
liquid ghost went down it began to
expand, and by the time Mrs. Biffle
reached her husband he was so full
of expanded great-grandfather that he
looked more like a balloon than a
human being. Mrs. Biffle ran scream
ing for a doctor, and that was what
saved her life, 'for just as she reached
the corner Artabanus exploded and
blew the whole front of the house
out After hunting for, three days,
not enough of -him .has been found to
decide whether he is dead or hot, but
the 'general opinion is-that he is as
dead as a doornail.
The odd thing is that the ghost of
Great-grandfather Biffle also disap
peared. The supposition is that after
being in such a cold state for so long
thetald rascal'ls at length willing to
go to that hot place where he be
longs, to warm up a little.

I For the Hostess
Clutf ob Iaterestia Topics of Many Kuds, 1&
m Recognized Aaihority
For Twelfth Night.
The first special day chronicled for
the glad new year's, month is
"Twelfth Night,' which comes on the
sixth". In olden days the celebration
of Christmas lasted until this date, or,
as it was' called, "old Christmas,"
when the "Lord of Misrule," whose
reign began on Christmas eve, ended,
with the burning of all the Christmas,
greens. This was done to propitiate
the evil spirits, who. might otherwise,
molest the household. This will give
the alert hostessthe keynote for an
What an opportunity for an oyster
supper after the bonfire, with piping
hot cheese sandwiches made in a
chafing dish! There must be a "mys
tery" cake, too. According to tradi
tion, it should contain two beans. The
ones getting these symbols of favor
are to be crowned king and queen and
for the remainder of the evening
their word Is law.
The hostess has an. ideal chance in
this to plan a series, of delightful sur
prises to be carried oat for the will
ing subjects. X)ne good stunt is to
command, certain couples (congenial,
of course, that goes without saying)
to discuss great and weighty subjects,
such as, "Should a Woman Propose?"
"How Much Pin Money Should a
Wife Have?" "An Ideal Way to Spend
a1 Honeymoon," etc. In 10 minutes a
report is to be made to the royal pair,
who' in the interim from affairs of
state will manage to' have an enjoy
able tete-a-tete themselves. If a bon
fire in the open is not practical, let us
hope there will at least be a grate
available for the burning of the
greens. A. rule is that each person
makes a wish while his or her armful
is being consumed. This gives an ex
cellent opportunity for a stunt party,
each one being requested to do some
thing sing a song, tell a story or in
some way contribute- a part of the
evening's fun. Nowadays the accept
able guest is the person with some
specialty, and just at present the art
of telling stories well is an accom
plishment worthy, of cultivation.
For a dozen elderly women this
charming tea was given. The house
was lighted with candles and for each
guest the hostess had a nosegay built
around a stick with a frill of lacey pa
per. These were presented when re
freshments were served. There was
a program of old-time songs, and the
guests brought their fancy work. The
menu consisted of tea,, pressed
chicken, tiny, hot, buttered biscuit,
jelly and pound cake. The invitations
were written on paper, folded and
Table Mat Design
i I II t
J!Z ! Tr
As cut leather Is one of the popu
lar crafts of the season, we are giv
ing a table mat design. The work is
not difficult and the results are. artis
tic and pleasing.
The first step is to make a whole
pattern on manlla paper. One-quarter
of the pattern is given. The easiest
way to do this is to blacken .the back;
of the pattern cut from the page,
using a very, soft pencil. Lay the patr
tern on themanila. paper and go over
all the lines of the design very care
fully. Be sure to keep the sweep of
the black leaves all going in one di
rection, that is, one following the oth
er right around on each quarter.
Next lay a piece of carbon paper,
black side down, on the right side of
the. leather and the design on top.
Fasten down with thumb tacks, being
careful to place them outside the cir
cle. Otherwise -there would be a hole
in the mat
They should be placed on a, hard
board. With a sharp pencil go over
all lines. Remove the paper and go
overvthe design again in pencil, so
that all parts may be perfectly dis
tinct for cutting.
