[Entered at the Posioffice at Alexandria, Virginia, at
Spirits Photographed.?A strange story
comes from tue town of Dover, Delaware.
j, If. Vane, a photographer of that town,
has in his possession a photograph of the
monument of tho late Jo?n M. Clayton, in
the Presbyterian churchyard, which has at?
tracted considerable attention and caused
uot a little comment, hi March last Mr.
Vance took his camera to the churchyard
and photographed the monument. He was
accompanied by a boy. When he looked at
the plalo he saw things never dreamed of
in connection with the monument, and
showed them to the boy, whoso hair stood
on end. and who made a bee line for homo.
The monument is a very large, lino one of
white marble. The torn!) rests upon a. dais,
undern heavy marble canopy, supported by
handsomely carved pillars. There is a space
of several feet between the tomb proper and
the marble canopy above. And now comes
the strangely supernatural feature of tho
photograph. Between the tomb and the
canopy above can be distinctly seen the
head and shoulders of a white whiskered
man. Peering around tho corner of the
tomb as if watching him, can be seeu the
head of a woman, with gazo lixed intently
upon the place occupied by the photogra?
pher. Floating in the air above the monu?
ment can be seen the shadowy countenanco
of a iarge. smooth faced, white haired man,
with mouth and eyes open, the expres?
sion being one of astonishment. The only
explanation advanced for the curious phe?
nomenon is that the plate was defective in
Borne way or had the impressions imparted
!o i: in some mysterious manner before tho
photograph was taken.
How a Feliphobiac Breaks Up Noc?
turnal Concerts.?"Have you any large
torpedoes, something that will make a loud
noise?" inquired a tall, blond gentleman who
walked briskly into a fireworks storo a few
The clerk replied that ho had the Grecian
torpedo, a contrivance of paper, tine gravel,
and fulminate of mercury used for the glori?
fication of tho United States by smnll but
"Are they real energetic and noisy?"
"Yes, Bir. About as loud as a pistol."
"(live me a box. I'm all oul, and I can't
get any sleep o' nights. Do any damage if
1 should drop the whole boxful or sil on
"Not a bit. They're harmless. Twenty
live cents, sir."
"All Tight. I guess these will keep tho
peace for a few nights."
When the gentleman bad gone, a repor?
ter saiit to the clerk: "That man doesn't
look like a skylarking student, and certain?
ly he did not buy those things for children.
What does he mean by keeping the peace
:.t night, with torpedoes?"
"Oh, he wants them for cats. One of
those torpedoes tossed from a window will
break up a cat concert quicker than all tho
bootjacks and bottles you could throw with
both hands. Cuts don't like mysterious ex?
plosion"; in the back y.rd. Torpedoes are
hotter than gun- or pistols because you can't
do any damage with them, and besides no?
body can tell from what window they are
thrown. A good many mysterious pistol
shots at night that puzzle tho police are
easily accounted for. Wo sell lots of torpe?
does to men who don't li ecats.
A Powdkr House Explodes.?At 2:30
o'clock yesterday morning Streator, III.,
was aroused by n most terrific explosion,
which was immediately followed by tho
ringing of lite lire bell. In a few minute.', it
was learned that tho powder house of the
Chicago, Wilmington and Vermil?on Coal
Company had been struck by lightning,and
between eight and ten thousand pounds of
powder had exploded. On arriving at the
scene, a terribie sight presented itself. Ev?
ery dwelling on tho south and west side of
tho powder house bad been completely
shattered, and in most cases entirely de?
molished. Not a vestige of the powder
house remain*, while where it stood is an
excavation of about GOO feet long, 40 feet
wide and '20 feet deep. Rescuing parties
were formed, aud the search for the dead
and injured began. strange as 'l ma3* seem
only oue fatality has been reported, but a
large number are seriously injured. A
tramp, who was sleeping iu a car near the
powder house, was probably fatally injured.
The number of minor casualties will reach
nearly a hundred. There were forty-five
dwellings almost lotallv demolished, and
there is not a plato glass window left in tho
business part of the city. It is impossible at
j this time to estimate the loss, but it will
j probably reach $75,000 or $100,000.
The C. & O. Canal.?The meeting heid
j at Cumberland Wednesday night by persons
j interested iu the future of the Chesapeake

! ed. Mr. Wellington, one of the speakers,
j said the meeting was called to take some
i steps for the salvation of the C. and O. ca
nal, and specifically to send delegates to the
: Kochester canal Convention, July 2S. He
;' advised the people to hold a mass-meeting,
! arouse the people of the district, and de
i ruand of their Congressman to direct his en
i ergie3 toward securing an appropriation for
j their canal. He said if Congress can give
\ money to attenuated streams it can help
j this waterway running to the National Cap

aid, ilifuich i: might bp possible to accom?
plish something at the constitutional con?
