A GHOSTLY VISITOR.-About ten days ago a
gentleman residing on Rutledge avenue, in
the neighborhood of Radcliffe street, was
awakened by a ringing at his street bell at the
dead hour o? midnight. It was no sneaking,
healtating pull, but a good, strong jerk, which
made the bell Jingle in a manner to reuse the
whole household. This postive ringing de?
manded aa answer; but lo! when the shiver?
ing representative of the household looked
out no visitor could be found, and nothing
could be heard but the chattering of teeth as
the cold, ghostly, morning air rushed In
through the half opened door. A malediction
upon the heads ol ail mischievous, bell-pulling
urchins, followed by an energetic slamming ol
the door, concluded the perlormance for the
first night. The second night it waa
repeated with asimilar result; and the third
and fourth nights brought the same discord?
ant ringing, and the same result upon going
to the street door. The thing continued reg?
ularly, and each night, almost without a Bingle
Intermission, between the hours of twelve and
one o'clock;, the bell was violently ruog and
no one could be found at the gate, when it was
answered. The mystery began to weigh upon
the minds ol the occupants of the house, and
the gentleman tried to get the services of a
policeman to watch the hou;e fdr the noctur?
nal bell-puller. Failing in this, he determined
to solve the mystery himself, and armed to
the teeth with thot guns, revolvers, swords,
&c, and, with a fearful Intent, he took his
stand upon his lonely vigil, near an open win?
dow, commanding (he bell knob, at point |
blank range. Eleven - half-past eleven
twelve-a quarter-past twelve came, when
the nodding sentinel came to bis feet with a I
jump, as the bell Jangled and clattered as if |
it were tied to the tall of a mad dog. At the
first sound of the bell the watcher presented
his double-barrel at the bell-knob, and each
particular hair began to stand on end as the
ringing progressed violently without anybody
being at the bell-knob. The puzzled sentinel
was no believer in ghosts, however, and was
about to withdraw quietly when a scratching
Bouod was heard, and looklog to the right on
the fence, he saw a venerable Thomas cat
scrambling over the bell wire on his way out
of the yard. For a moment our sentinel eyed
the animal with vicious thoughts as lt looked
back with an innocent expression in the moon?
light, but the mystery had been solved, and
Thomas was allowed to pursue the even tenor
of his way without molestation, to ring the
bell again in the samo manner. The regular
habits of cats are well known, and about mid?
night this wandering animal usually pursued
this course to get into the street. He had
each night encountered the bell-wire, and
either made it a round in his ladder of ascent
or scrambled against it, not being able to dis?
tinguish the wire in tie dark.

UNDER THE NAME OF
O O T T O IV F O O I> !
Which they claim to be of the Highest Grade of Fertilizer sold In the South, and guarantee to equal
la results Peruvian Guano, pound for pound, and of more permanent benefit t) the soil.
It has been nsed by several hundred Planters in North and Sooth Carolina aid Georgia, for two
seasons, with the following results :
It increases the crop from 103 to 200 per cent.
It resists drought In all cases. The crop ls not affected by rust.
It matures the crop thtee to fonr weeks in advance, thus iosnrlng the crop against early frosts,
or in the event of a backward season for planting enables the planter to put in lils crop three or four
weeks later, even as late as the 1st of Jane, with a certainty of success.
It produces a better quality of Cotton.
Looking at the low price of Cotton, the Intelligent planter will readily comprehend the.nect salty
nf using not hine bat the highest grade of Fertilizers, and of Br.ricily avoiding those whose value
has been reduced by adult?rai lon or the use of cheap materials under the pretence of meeting the
low price of Cotton.
If hH crop ls only doubled by the use of "COTTON FOOD" lt will give him from ene to two hun
dred per cent, profit on h s outlay, with Cotton at 12 x cents per pound, and lt will enable bim to plant
fewer acres, with a correspoadlag redaction of labor and expense, with better results.
