One of the party hi a jocular manner,
after the conversation had progrcsid
about llncn minute, said to the spirit:
"We have some egg-nog here that Is
excellent. Will you take a mug ':'' s
The party was absolutely astounded
when the spirit replied:
"Thank yon; I Iwlluvu I will. I died
ten years ago, and I have not tated ;;
nog since theChristinas In-fore that event.
A "inall mug, If you please."
Hating received his mug, tho spirit
drank all of Its content-, and smacking
his Hps said:
"That's good. It Is better than wc get
over there."
In a few minutes the draught was re
peated, ami then repeated again. At last
the party liccaiuc merry. Old-time, tales
were told, old-time Ming ung, the spirit
Joining in tho f.-tlvltles with a tlm. He
sang several convivial spirit-oiig., and
told a imiulicr of laughable anecdotes in
an Inimitable manner.
In this way nio-t of the day was con
sumed, and onu of thu party said :
'I must go home."
"Don't," said thu spirit; "I like thi.
I think I'll stay. I believu I won't un
materiallc to-day."
Thu situation was getting uncomforta
ble, and when the spirit suggc-tcd thai
the party should take a "turn about
town," hu proposing to go along, there
was eou-ternatloii among the Spiritualis
tic egg-nog drinker. Hut what could
they do? They had to Mibmlt to fate.
AIIOL'T TOWN.
The spirit buttoned up bis coat, and
with an unsteady 'gait walked towards
the door. The wondering Spiritualists
followed, and soon found themselves on
thu street. The spirit was In (ho bct of
spirits, ami laughed and Joked with his
dumbfounded companions.
s the party passed thu Old Dclnionico,
tho spirit stopped and said :
"Comu In boy., and get a drink. They
have some really excellent whisky here.
It's old oil."
What could the "boys" do? Thev
went In. They drank. Thu spirit, to
the astonishment of all, paid thu bill, nml
aked thu "boys" to go around to thu
Planters' ami get supper.

Alter tho party got ou to thu street

Wlillc the.su demonstrations were going

said:
"Sou hero, stranger, you must not
make so much noise."
"Who'r your" asked thu spirit; and
then hu shouted, and made a pass at -Mac
with his spiritual right hand.
Wu need not say thu companions of tho
ghost weru almost frightened to death
when thu Chief laid his heavy hand upon

Wo agree with Carl Thoma.'. and .iv
with cmphas, ihat the newspaper bui-
nes i'j awful. Xow Ihero were Iheeol-
ored folks who had a row Christmas
night. We were sure the fus wa hi the
.MethodNt church, for we were In .fudge
mni s olllce when the trial cmne oft; ami
would hate worn they weru .Methodists,
nut when we mentioned the name of
Henry Wl-dom in thohearlngoftliu bo-.
hu told us that it mii-l have been tit Cahl-
wi-ll's church that Wi-dom Ix-longed to
jahlweH's party. We thought we knew
what we were talking about; weren't we
there, and didn't wu hear thu evidence
on both shies? Of course. Hut Sonlre
!lrd comes forward, and says In si kind of
munleri-li way: "See here, the Jletho-
ill-t are going to eat you, If you don't
take back what you said about that light.
lliey had afiMiv.il and exhibition at
their church, and everything went oil as
nice a- could be. That ll-dit wasn't at
their church at all; It was at Caldwell'.
Wisdom don't In-long to that church, and
the bc-t thing you can do will be to re
tract, or you'll get chawed." Hlnl lielng
a colored man. this was tin-Democratic
talk, ami we,lieliig soundly Democratic,
killed him on the spot, skinned htm ami
gave his circa to the vulture. Then,
itiiK!llcd to it by by high-toned devotion
to the truth, we resolved to make thu re
quired correction. We therefore
take It all back, and If
there Is anything that anyone else has
said that the members of the .Mcihodl-t
church don't like nnd want taken back,
we 11 shoulder that too. All we ask l,to
lorgive us tins time, and we swear by all
that Is holy neter to be guilty of making
such a mistake again. This Is the third
lime wo have committed errors of this
kind during our short experience as a
ncwspaiM-r man, and we havu about nr
rlved at thu conclusion that wo had better
re-Igu our high position in favor of some
one who weighs a little more than wo do.
We wvru not made for the lighting man
