"Queer tales of Mr. Hudson, eh?"
"Yes," answerea my friend, as his steam
yacht shot along the glassy river, dodging
In and out among canal boat villages,
schooners, ice barges, lordly steamers and
a world of small sail. "Tell me, have yon
never encountered a real, nerve creeping
legend along here among these Highland
shadows some companion tale to the
wraith out of which Rip Van Winkle
grew? You spend months darting up and
down, in and out here amid the bows and
frowns of Crow's Nest, Dunderburg and
My friend, a scholarly idler, whose pet
fancy was colonial history, leaned back on
the bench by the tiller and was lost in
thought. Tho valley of the Hudson was
visible by a turn of the head through more
than fifty miles from the Catskills on the
north to the Fishkill Highlands to the
south of us. We were at that moment be
tween New Hamburg and Poughkeepsie.
That marvel, the most remarkable bridge
in the world savecne. reached out like a
6pidcr's web from shore to shore above the
gleaming water. A few 6pires of Pough
keepsie pierced the green upon our right.
The castles of rich men peeped at us from
tho verdure clad banks, and here and there
from a velvet park the Yankee liberty pole
held aloft the red, white and blue, flutter
ing in the sultry midsummer sheen.
"Why, yes indeed!" suddenly exclaimed
ray friend. "We'll go ashore there. Old
Zeek Watt. Tromp's cave. Capt. Kidd's
money. Did you ever hear of Tromp's
cavern We'll go ashore." And promptly
the graceful little craft began to spring
in toward a small covo that sweeps in a
few miles below Poughkeepsie, on the east
"There's an old chap here who once vol
unteered to lead me in there," said my
friend. "Ah, there's his hut, up there
among those coves of arbor vitie."
We soon got a dollar or two into old Pete
Puyster's hand and unlocked his tongue
Yes, there were countless millions in there.
Ho had seen the chamber where the iron
pots were hid. Why did he not lift a pot
or two out? He shook his head. We
pressed our question. Why should he be
taking rare dollars from visitors, or beg
ging up and down the highway, if he knew
where there were pots of money?
It took considerable of this questioning
to get from Puyster this somewhat start
ling repty: "Ye see I'm the great-grandchild
of Zeek Watt, Tromp him as tho
cave is named after in these parts. Well,
Zeok he is, or was, the child of Capt. Kidd
and--and" and the old fellow paused
His bronze cheek bones lost their color, tlii
only spots on his bearded face that cou Id
palo with emotion. It took another dolla-'
from my friend's prodigal hand to open tho
old fellow's lips again.
After m interval of deep meditation he
arose feebly, tottered into his hut, brought
out an ancient Dutch Bible and said:
"Gentlemen, swear on this that you will
never reveal what I'm 'bout to show you.
I'm getting very old. I'm 91 in August. 1
can't last much longer. I may as well tell
it afore I die."
Wo declined to swear, but gave the pa
triarch anothca dollar. Avarice is the sin
of age. We argued long on the point that
he was nearly through with this world
anyway, and he would make a powerful
friend of my wealthy friend for his last
sickness by wholly revealing to us the
mysteries of the cavern.
"Especially do I wish to know about tho
woman in the case," exclaimed my friend.
"Who was Matt Tromp's mother? Who
was tho fair prisoner whom Capt. Kidd left
hero in charge of his wealth and his baby
Old Pete stared hard at us.
"Who said anything about any bride?"
"Why, you left us to infer that that
there was a wife, presumably a bride, for
Kidd was not long in one place. And 1
presume her spirit haunts the place yet,
guarding those pots of gold."
As I -volunteered this you could have
knocked Pete down with a feather. I
feared I had destroyed the day's fun, for
during tho next ten minutes tho patriarch
scarcel y moved so much as to breathe.
We gave him yet another dollar.
Then he arose like a mannikiu, lighted a
lantern which he had probably stolen from
some freight train on Mr. Vauderbilt's
road jut below, and mumbled:
"You fellers are prophets. You seem to
know. Take your own risks if you dare.
We followed him to tho eutrance of the
cavern. Every one has read of the phys
ical tortures endured by adventurers while
penetrating a cave. I had, but no descrip
tion can do justice to the facts. You are
prepared of course to ruin your clothing,
but you naturally recent tho demands
made on your epidermis.
Yielding all hopes of keeping a whole
skin, you yet draw the line at your bones.
In fact, however, you must draw no lines:
bo satisfied if you can draw your breath.
Not that the air was so foul, but I have al
ways found it difficult to breathe the dark
ness. I must have light in my air, even
the gas burning i,t night while I sleep. If
you were to turn off the light in my cham
ber I should immediately awaken from tho
soundest clumber. This habitude came
with our first laby in tho home. I can
also sleep better with a little noise going
on, for the sjime reason. Sdeuce is to me
The cavo was the profoundest silence, the
most awful darkness. The dust of 1,000
years lay like a carpet on the stones. The
valley winds had btrewn the cavern's
throat with sand leaves till we sink into
it three inches. It was a perfectly dry
"Do you see them shoe tracks?" asked
Pete, pointing down, with his lantern held
low. How grateful I was for the voire,
though it was taken up and echoed in dis
mal cadences. In fact the sepulchral
echoes of our voices were so frightful that
from the first I had dreaded to use this
means of shattering theTsilence.
"Them tracks are b Capt. Kidd's own
shoe, a giant's foot. And right here along
side is the pretty little shoe of the woman.
That's tUe time she went in for the last.
Ho was carrying some of the gold and sho
was carrying the baby boy. When 6ha
goes In ana out now uno don't leave any
Surely there were tho footprints, ex
plain it who may.
"Sho goes in and ont nowadays, does
she?" asked my friend. For my part I
was too dumb with fright to speak, peer
ing forwanl with the dread of seeing the
ghostly lady start out of the gloom.
"Every Christmas she comes out with hor
bag or a pot of the treasurol" solemnly ex
claimed Pete, emphasizing each word with
a peculiar jerk of his lantern.
"Whither does she go?" asked my friend.
"Look out or you'll extinguish our lan
tern!" I yelled, and so adjourned the old
That dnrkness! Shall I ever chase its
shadows from my mind! Our feeble taper
became but a revealer of the black gullet
which we were penetrating. Hazy bars
darted like spears into the gloom. From

deeper down. Then again the strangely
beautiful darting f our lantern's rays, as
you have seen tht noonday sunbeams dart
down and branch in trembling movement
into the heart of a turgid pond.
We walked erect. We were frequently
In chambers of considerable rize, as was
easy to perceive by the touch of the hand
on the rocky corridor, then nothing to
touch, then the narrow passageway once
more. In not one of these gigantic cham
bers did the darkness yield to our light
sufficient to show dimensions. It was in
deed darkness eternal. Since the sun was
created here was space where he had never
shone. Yet the air was cool, and grew
sweeter, even exhilarating, as we proceed
ed. Proceeded! A thousand times had 1
resolved to return, but old Pete seemed
deaf. No word of entreaty penetrated his
ears. Even tho chink of silver dollars
would not rouse him to any response. He
plodded on, on. We thought of tho aged
guide's feeble heart beat with its 91 years
of throbbing. What if he were to drop
and join the ghostly shades that mayhap
haunted the place?
We were about agreed on forcibly halt
ing him when, in an eye's twinkle, the de
cayed old man began to dance. As he
sprung up and down and waved his hands
a change came over him. Ho wore an
aspect of a boy, and a light, soft, phos
phorescent, beautiful, broke over him,
over the lordly chamber where we stood.
"See yonder!" We both spoke it.
The wonderful glory shone from a per
son. "Tho woman in the case!" exclaimed my
"Capt. Kidd's bride," I replied, and wo
both laughed, though why wo laughed I
do not know; surely I was never more
deeply terrorized in my life. Probably it
was not a very joyous laugh. As for our
youthful-aged guide, he was now fairly on
his knees before the apparition.
It was the figure of a pleasing woman,
English, I should say, though my friend
says Dutch to this day. I think she spoke
English; my friend says Dutch. I think
she was dressed in the old English garb of
two centuries ago. My friend, better vers
ed in these things than I, says she wore
tho picturesque costume of the Nether
lands. But then her robe was so shining
white that no eye could linger on it long.
Behind the lady stood the precious pots
of treasure trove. Spoils from the Spanish
main and pelf from the Roman sea. Blood
money! A pirate's wealth! To every glitter
ing piece a dying sailor's hands had clung.
The groans of deck loads of wounded men
seemed still to lurk amid the mossy piles.
The rude kettles ran over with the stuff.
Handfuls lay on the floor about the prong
like legs of each old cauldron.
I said she spoke. If I understood her
aright this is what she said:
"Return! This wealth is in trust. Know
ye the Van Houghtapootings, of great New
My friend managed to groan out that he
was acquainted with this very old family
in the persons of some of its latest repre
sentatives. "This wealth is their suppty. Once each
year, at Christmas, I take them a pot of
this silver and gold. That's how they live,
for they toil not, neither do they spin."
I awoke. We were lying quietly mid
stream, of Newburg bay, the yacht softly
cradled in a midsummer's twilight.
"That fish dinner!" I exclaimed to my
friend. "It made me dream."
"Exactly my case." he replied.
On comparing our dreams they were sin
gular' alike, in .'act quite identical. A
dream, I confess. Nevertheless there is
some such legend floating amid the purple
shadows of the Highlands on the Hudson.

Clocks in Washington.
Congress kills time by nearly a thousand
:locks. At the hour of noon more than
ten thousand strokes of tiny bells sound
through the great building. On all ordi
nary occasions 12 o'clock is the beginning
or the end of the day at the Capitol. For
the committees it is tho close of the day;
in the halls of congress the morning hour
begins just when tho last hour of tho
morning has closed. When tho ball drops
at meridian on the dc me of the observa
tory, when tho whistl-s sound and the
bells ring throughout the city, and the
workmen everywhere cgin to rattle their
dinner pails, the hands of tho electric
clocks at the Capitol spring straight to tho
hour of 12, picking up a moment of lost
time or dropping a moment they have
marked too soon.
Then the speaker's gavel falls and it is
the time for morning prayer. High noon
is the hour of hours in this marble temple
of law and disorder. All the Capitol
clocks must mark that punctually if no
other hour in the day, and all the bells
must strike in unison. At noon congress
has its birth and at noon it expires.
It isonlyon extraordinary occasionswhen
congress is hardly its natural self that it
meets from daj to day at any other hour.
All committees, unless they have, received
some special dispensation, cease to have
power to act as committees when the clock
on the mantel strikes 12. Action taken
after that has no binc.ug force. There
fore the official clock, whose statement as
to the hour cannot be disputed, is on the
mantel in each of the hundreds of commit
tee rooms. Washington Star.

"Did you ever notice that the hands on
nearly all the wooden clocks used as signs
by jewelers point to the hour of S:17
o'clock?" asked a hoary headed jeweler of
the town crier recently. "I have," was
the reply, "and would like to know the
reason for it." "Well, I will tell you.
Abraham Lincoln was assassinated just
seventeen minutes past $ o'clock. At the
meeting of the Jewelers association, of
New York, it was decitied to change the
hands on all 'dummy' c'ocks usvd as signs
so that they would p,int to this hour.
This rule was adopted by all jewelers
throughout the United States. Of late it
has fallen somewhat into disuse, but a
majority of the clocks still point to the
ssjna hour." Seattle Ppsk.

One of the heaviest verdicts ever recov
ered was in the case of Lilly vs. the New
York Central railroad. Lilly was at work
fixing the brake of a car standing on the
track. A locomotive ran down aud knocked
him off the car so that both of his legs
were run over. The injury was so great
that the surgeons amputated both legs at
once without attempting to chloroform
the unfortunate man. The jury was only
out five minutes, and returned a verdict
for the full amount claimed, which was
