-'b'ten'able to learn ful particilars.
'Vgive the stty as it comes to us,
.s Rleaw our readers to take it with
at grains of allowance they may. The
'tale runs that a aturied s'oldies was
foitud frozen in the grove near Urbana,
'and taken into a barn, where he laid for
'everal days before burial. Soon after
'his intermnt, while some men were en.
gaged in digging a grave, they heard
ictrattge sounds, which so frightened them
that.they left the cemetery in haste,
under the impression that ghosts and
goblins had taken' possession of the citf
of the ddad.' Their wonderful story de.
termined others to investigate the mat.
ter, and the grave of :ttio soldier was
opened, when the horrible'discovery was
made that he hadhee en combed alive,
his body. yet retaining so,e warmth,
though the vital spark had fled.. The
ntoise that had attracted attention are
supposed to have been made.b7 the vic
titm in his desperate strugglesio escap&
