The earliut ter in the Mathpr.
papers that 8ilt4 e to the 'dehsot;.bf
witchcraft i "T e testimouy of WiI' i
1am Mors nd-4 s wife," relatink cer
fajn vents that 9courre .at .his house
'ih149, which were' believed to be the
result of witchcraft. This testimony
was Inclosed in a letter froin the ltv.
Joshua Moodey to the 'Rev. Increase
Maher. "The last thing heard of," t
says the venerable divine, "was (he b
-carrying away of several axes in the
"'night notwithstanding they were INid c
up, yea, lockt up very safe, as the t
owner thought, at least, which was
',done this spring." The tramp had a
ovidently not yet been invented for the
benefit of the careless.
It seems thit Master Mors and his e
wife had but just retired for the night
when they were roused by the violent
falling of "Stokes & Stons". on the
roof. On opening the door to discover
the cause of these nocturnal disturb
ances both he ayd his. wife were
dt+iven back by a volley of stones
hurled against them. The pair dis
crectly returned to bed, locking the
door carefully behind them, but. at
about midnight were again awakened
by the loud grunting of a hog lv ich
the 1aster of the house was at ime
tr4tble to drive out of doors. The.
powers of darkness did not confine
their pranks to the pight, but continued
their performances in broad daylight.
llousehold goods, hung in the chimney
for safe keeping, leaped from their
'hooks and took possession of the chairs,
and other articles fled from their accus
toned places and fell rattling dow n
the chimney. Among .other artieles,
he ,says: "A basket in the chamber.
com doun the chimney. 1 tocko it up
myselfe and laid.it, befor'c me; it was
sudinly taken away I know not how
and coin doun the chinny again. I
thci took a brick and put into it and
sald It should carry that if it did goo
up againe. It was taken away I know
not how and com doun the chiimny and
th% brick * * * after it."
ihe godly nMan was sorely plagued
by the continual falling of stones on
the roof and even of lighted firewood
down the chitney. Swine invadedcl
!his house and it was impossible for
him and his hired boy to keep the cat
tie fastened in the barn. Pots, kettles
and andirons perforined a witche's
dance around the kitchen, and neither
sheets nor blankets would stay npon
the bed. Chairs woulf then perforim
a polite obeisance and theu violently
kicked the master and mistress of the
house. 1"inally the writer concludes:
"A mate of a ship coming often to me
and said lie was much grieved for us,
and said the boye was the Cause of oll
my (rubble and my wife was lunch
Ronged and was no wich1 and if I
would Let him have the boy but bion

had not any trubel since.''
The second letter vouching for sup
aAry witch-like occuirrences wis writ

a worthy than the Rev. Jolmi Russell,
the kindly protector of tle regicides,

The same 1)r. Moodey mentioned
above can not let the'birth of an un
fortunate ndnstrosity occur without
finding in it something of witchcraft,
and. he gravely writes to Bototn in
September, - 1683, a minute descrip
tion of a poor distorted infant that was
brought, forth by an Indian womnan, as
a terrrible warning of things present
and to come. le concludes: "Doubt
less you have hearn how watt ers are

man, he needed them not only f)r his
credulity but for his misfortunes, for
he was shortly after inprisoned by

These -extraordinary statements
were sent to l)r. Mather, as lie was

rather volumnes, ealled "Rtemarkable

I;84. These utncouthl an(1 garblel
tales were accepted as absolutely cor

scholars in America and England.

Origin of the Word "Doodie."
The origin of the word "hoodlo," which
has obtaunod such notoriety of late, is
giving rise to a considerable amount of dis
cussion, but there is little doubt that it is
simply a slang Western term, implying
uoa,ey in bulk. The Chicago .Neir sug
gests t [at it may be a corruption of "bodle,"
a small Scotch (oin, in value about one
third of a penny. In New England the
term "bocdie" is in cottmnon use, signifying
the whole or all-the entirety of anything.
