(boat Coikenofs Island, a pret'y bit
ol and containios ab3ut tweiitjr acres
and situated sbirn tbres mi Its to the
t eastward cf Mrs placf, writes a Nor
w.ik (CO correspondent of tbe Boston
GlAtc. The island has bad tbe reputa
tion cf being haunted by tbe ghost of
tbe ill fated lad Charlie Row, and for
yoirs it baa been nntenaniei lave by
pai lies oi campers out, one oi wbobi,
the otber day, rescued the unfortunate
Gorman boy who was found floating
in a water lopgtd boat two miles oil
A itory which is devoutly bjlievfd
by people living la the vicinity of the
inland is that the bones of Charlie
Bras lis buried in come portion of tbe
hltnd, and within a wetk something
baa happened which has caused con
Bid" ruble excitement hereabout?.
About the time cf the excitement
over tbe kidnapirg of the boy two

on the leUtd. Tuey occupied a house

who visited the Is'and were peremp

The great anxiety cf the men to koep
tbe boy out ol eiitht arout ed suspu ion,
and the men and their prisoner were
at once connected with the kidnap
Many attempts were made to get a
good Icok at the boy, but they fni'ed.
One party, consisting of three well
known citiaos, two nf whom are liv
ing, landed on the i land one day and
battened to tbe horse. Their approach
wta uuobfetved, and they attempted
to pet inside the houe, when one of
the mm, with an oath, blocked tbe
doorway, and, whipping out a Tinifo,
threatened to stab tue flr.,t man who
dared to crom the threshold. The
party bad not come prepared for such
a warm reception, and they beat a
One day tbe two men were seen
leaving the island, but the boy was
not with them. One or two men im
mediately set out in a boat and visited
the Uland in tbe hope of finding the
lad. They reached tbe old house and
found it deserted. The premises
looked as though t he late occupaota
had left for good. Everythirg had
been removed or destroyed. Not a
trace of the lad could be found. The
men did not come back, and tbe story
is that tbe child was murdered in the
old house and his remains' bnried on
the Kpot Many parties dug up the
dirt floor of the cellar, but without
(lading any trace of a murder.
The other day an elder'y man,
poorly and roughly drefsed, rowed out
to tbe island and visited the house,
deveral residents who saw bim declare
that he bears a c'ose resemblance to
one of the two men who livad there
so mjBteriotnly yeara ago. "Tbo old
man drew some plans of the houHe
and made some rough measurements
of the cellar near the east wall. Tbe
man left aa quietly as be rime, and
refused to answer any questions.
, Immediately after the old man's visit
some young fellows went to the island,
and out of curiosity commenced to dig
near the wall where tbe mysterious
stranger had taken measurements, and
they unearthed a human ekull and
several bine, so tbey (aid. Their
story is accepted by the townsfolk, al
though there lire those who say that
the bones they dug np probably be

keep at the inland.
Several o'd resident) any that the
appearance of the lad who was kept a
prisoner on the Island tallies exactly
with the description of the curly
haired Charlie rVsi, as printed in the
newspapers. Ono or two gantlnnen
living here believe that he was mur
dered on the island, and will make at
tamrtstocltarup the mystery.

to be filled on Wednesday that is cf
mere real importance tJ the people of
