Well, that's what tho Pecaricks now
say of the house on Punchbowl from
which they are today moving, after
having been the main attractions of a
few day's visitation by hundreds of cu
rious people who wanted to see the
chosts alleged to have turned things
topsy-turvy on Sunday.
' The Pecaricks declare that they
were buncoed by the previous tenants
of the old Boyd premises, for that the
previous tenants knew very well that
the house was haunted and unkindly
neglected, to inform the Pecaricks that
such was the c;tse.
Now tho Pecaricks say that the
neighbors are telling of ghostly things
that happened in the house before they
became occupants about a month ago,
They say that one night when their
predecessors wero endeavoring to
slumber, a hand, ' without ' the usual
body attachment, stretched out and
wrench open the fastened shutters, and
at the same moment all tho windows
and doors of the house flew open.
On another night, they say, a young
ladv's shoes walked out from under
her bed and walked around tho honsa,
klckinc tho furniture, taking a run
down the road and finally returning
to their position under the bed.
