ALL KINDSJF GHOSTS
Polly Andrews Discovered a
By CLARA INEZ DEACON.
Ehorlff Bob Andrews was climbing
Into his buggy to drive to town when
bis (daughter Jolly camo out of the
houso to call to him:
"Oh, dad, I'm going over to 'the
Rlckatt's place today to get wild
"Lota of them there' hoTepllod,
but what about the ghosts?"
"They never show up by daylight,
"Well, don't flirt with them, if they
The old. Elckett's place was a mile
down the highway. It was a small
farm and a rambling old house that
tad been abandoned for years. The
land had grown up to weeds and briars
and tangle, and the house was door
less and wlndowlesa, and tenanted by
all kinds of ghosts, from that of Henry
Ward Deecher t that of a murdered
pack peddler. When the boys visited
the place to snook around they wont
In gangs, and tho men who drove past
after dark made their horses step a
little faster at this spot. Everybody
laughed about the ghosts of the Rick
ett's house, but nobody made a hunt
Polly Andrews had been visiting tho
place at Intervals for the last five
years. There were artichokes, apples,
plums and berries to be found there In
season, and a healthy girl has the
same appetite for those things as a
boy. She has never peered Into the
front door. But that was the limit.
No use In tempting the ghosts to
spring out and do murder. The wild
plum season had come again, and
Polly would defy several ghostB for all
the fruit she could eat. Yes, there
were plenty of wild plums, as her fa
ther had said, and oho sat down under
a tree to "gobble."
From where she sat, the girl could
see only one end of the bouBO. There
were four window-openings In view
and she had glanced at them several
times and wondered what the Interior
of the, houso was like, when the face
"Come Down Here, Slrl"
if a young man suddenly appeared at
one of the openings on the second
floor. It showed for only three sec
onds, but that was long enough to
satisfy the girl that Bhe was looking
at a human being a young man
whoso face might have been interest
ing but for the look of fear on it
"That chap Is hiding!" whispered
the girl to herself, and she felt more
curiosity than fear. '
Bob Andrews had been sheriff ot
Doone county, term after term, and his
wife and daughter had always been
more or less interested In his cases.
"Yes," resumed tho girl," "If he
were not a fugitive, he would not be
here. Hasn't the look of a horse thief,
and he Is a stranger In this locality.
May have been hiding here for three
or four days, but I haven't heard that
dad Is after anyone Just now. Ho Is
probably armed. Wonder what dad
wouid do if he were here?"
For five long minutes she kept her
eyes on the window, hoping the man
would show his face again, and then
she sprang up with tho words:
"Why, I know what dad would do.
He'd go in there and pull the fellow
out and And out all about him. I'll
do tho samel"
Without giving herself time to ar
gue, she walked straight up to the
house and half-way around It to the
porcb, and looked in at the doors. A
rotting and dismantled stairway, led
up from a hallway wlth-llttle heaps of
rubbish hero and there desolation on
every hand. It was a ghostly place,
oven at midday.
"Come down here, Blrl"
The girl stepped into the hall and
called to whomever might be above.
No reply no movement.
"Then I shall come up!"
With a chill at her heart and every
nerve tingling, Polly softly mounted
the shaky old stairs. There was fear
at every step, but she forced herself to
go upwards. Four bedrooms opened
off the hall, and no doors to any of
them. The girl looked Into three of
them, and then shivered. The man
must be hiding in the (( fourth. She
hesitated for only a second and then
advanced. There 'was no challenge.
Sitting on the floor In a corner was
the fugitive. His knees were draws
up.and his elbows rested on them,
and his face was hidden in his hands.
He knew that the girl had coma np
vgJr- jf n ft
and was looking at htm, but ho kept
his position until she rather Impa
"Well, you have a name and a
"If they have come to arrest me "
he replied looking up.
"Mister man, get to your foot!
That's bettor. Now get a grip on your
self. Why are you cowering here?"
"I have been made a victim of a
base plot," he answered. "I have been
hiding here for two days."
"I havo read of base plots In novels,
but never encountered one. They
didn't seem to pick out a hero to base
plot against In this case!"
Tho young man was Impressed by
her sarcasm. He blushed and straight
ened' up, and after swallowing hard ho
replied: "I do not claim to be a hero,
but I am not a liar. For three years
I have been employed In the First
National bank at Averne."
"Yes. And money has been taken."
"A package of $5,000 was missing. I
had no jnoro to do with tho taking of
it than you did."
"But you skipped out and left tho
world to believe you a thief."
"Yes, fool that I am, it camo upon
me bo suddenly that I was all confu
sion. The cashier came to me and
charged me with the theft and put
?100 in my hands and advised me to
fleo at once to escape arrest. He said
prison awaited me If I stayed. I only
waited to put on my hat and coat.'
"Chump!" scorned Polly.
"But If I had stayed?"
"That package would have been
found somewhere as having been
'mislaid.' Was there any particular
reason for the cashier wanting to
drive you out?" v
"I can't think of any."
"Were you both courting tho same
"Why why "
"Oh, you Innocent lamb!" laughed
the girl. "It's no wdhder the gold
brick men can afford their steam
yachts. How that cashier must.
"Do you think think .'.
"No, I don't think. I know. Your
name is what?"
"And I am Polly Andrews, daugh
ter of the sheriff of this county. Come
out under the plum trees."
When they wero out doors and seat
ed she continued: "Mr. Porter Phelps
you appear to lack sand and to bo
easily rattled and to need a guardian.
You havo told me astralght story,
"Then you are coming with mo
and tell dad-all about It. Dad's fine
as silk on a trail, and they say I
know a thing or two. I guess we can
straighten this matter out all right."
"But your father " protested tho
"He'll have a few words to say
along the line I have, and then turn to
and help you out."
Polly was a prophet To a layman,
the young man's story would have
been pronounced too fishy for belief,
but Sheriff Andrews had seen Just as
queer cases In his time. He listened
quietly, thought for awhile, and then
"If you and the cashier -wore both
after the same girl, he would have a
motive in wanting to drive you away
In disgrace. I'll go over to Averne
and see what I can pick up."
Two days later he returned to say:
"No one but the cashier had heard
that anyi money was missing, and It
dld'hot take me long to convince him
that even he had not heard of it.
You can go back and take your place
A year later, Just after Mr. Phelps
had left tho" sheriff 's house one eve
ning, the father remarked to the
'"J thought he was in lovo with a
girl In Averne."
"So did ho for awhile." -
"Did she Jilt him?"
"No. Ijurested him!"

Old Riga Being Modernized.
The ancient city of Riga, on the
river Dwlna, near the Baltic sea, la
undergoing a wonderful change. The
place was founded in 1201 by the
Knights of the Sword, a German order
instituted to convert the Letts and
Esthonlans. It became in time a fort
ress of considerable strength. It did
not lose tho appearance of a medieval
town until 1857, when Its masonry
walls wero torn down. When Napo
leon Invaded Russia more than a cen
tury ago the governor of Riga burned
two thousand houses. Riga Is now
bejng converted. Into a modern indus
trial city. The centuries-old moat has
been turned Into a picturesque canal
and Its banks havo been planted with
ornamental trees and shrubs to pro
vide a popular promenade. The old,
narrow winding streets of the Inner
town are being widened and straight
ened. The suburban quarter, for so
long a collection of wooden huts, is
being built over Into large apartment
houses. Several squares and public
gardens and buildings are being con
structed. One ot the squar'B is used
as a military parade ground. On It Is
the Rurslan cathedral, the city
museum and a school "supported by
the chamber of commerce. New York

Two sad years since Father left us,
Whom we loved and cherished dear
Can we help hut feel bo lonely
When our Father is nothere f.
No more his kind and loving face
Shall light the gloom of home,
Yet In memory's love we see him
While In sorrow we .are alone.
Tp his grave we go and shed our tears
Saying.he Is not dead hut sleeping here.
But our Baylor gently calling
Summoned him to lead tbe.way,
O'er the path watched by Angels
We will follow some sweet dav.
