WORSE THAN A GHOST STORY
A Wonderful Narrative.
The Dead Rises from the Grave.
GRAND TRAVERSE, MICH.,
GRAND TRAVERSE, MICH., May 21, 1858.
Eds. register : I send vou the
following account of a most ex
traordinary event or transaction
or what you will because, in my
opinion, it ought not to be sup
pressed: but on the contrary, tho
roughly investigated. In the midst
of the excitement here, such a
thing as calm and unbiased ex
amination is altogether out of the
question ; nor vould it be safe to
attempt it, inasmuch as the deter
mination of the people is strongly
to "hush up." As I myself am one
of the chief characters concerned in
the affair, I dare not attempt, if I
possessed the ability, to determine
the character ol what l am about
to relate.
I left Cleveland to establish my
self here, as you will remember,
some timo It si July a young and
inexperienced physician. Almost
the first patient I was called to see
was a Mrs. Ilayden a woman
thirty-five years of age, a strong
constitution and a well-balanced
mind, (apparently,) and. (appa
rently,) with little or no imagina
tion. She was,liowever, a "Spiritual
ist," with the reputation of being a
superior "medium." Iier usual
physician, Dr. J. N. Williams, was
absent hence her application to
me. I found her laboring under a
severe attack of typhus fever, which
threatened to prove fatal. Having
prescribed for her, I left, promising
to send Dr. W, as 6oon as he re
turned. This was on Saturday morning.
At night Dr. W, took the patient
off my hands, and I did not see her
again until Friday evening of the
ensuing week. I then found her
dying, and remained with her until
her decease, which took place pre
cisely at midnight. She was, or
appeared to be, rational during the
whole of my visit, though I was
informed that she had been de
lirious the greater part of the week.
There was nothing remarkable
about her symptoms. I should say
tho descase had taken its natural
course.
At the time of her decease there
were in the house, besides myself,
her husband, Mrs. Green, (her
sister) and Mrs. Miles, (a neighbor.)
Her husband, whom I particularly
noticed, was very thin and weak,
then suffering from a quick con
sumption, already beyond recovery.
He bore the character of a clear
minded, very firm, illiterate, but
courteous, man, and a most stren
nous unbeliever in Spiritualism.
There had been some subdued
conversation, such as is natural in
such scenes, the patient taking no
part in it, except to signify, in a
faint and gradually diminishing
voicfA, : her .wants, until about an
hour before her (death, when a
sudden and indescribable change
came over her features, voice and
appearance a change which her
husband noticed by saying, withj
as I thought unwarranted bitter
ness.; ; , '
"There goes" thosei cursed spirits
The patient hereupon unclosed
her eyes, and fixing a look of un
utterable emotion upon her hus
band a look so direct, searching
and unwavering that I was not a
little startled by it. , Mr. Ilayden
met it with something like an un
happy defiance, and finally asked of
his wife what she wanted. She
immediately replied, in ' a voice of
perfect health, "You know."
I was literally astonished at the
words and the voice in which they
were uttered.
I had often read and heard of a
return of volume and power, of
voice just preceding dissolution ;
but the voice of the patient had
none of the natural, intonation of
such it was, as I have said, per
fectly healthy. Li a few moments
sho continued in the same voice,
and with her eyes still fixed upon
her husband : , -
"William, in your secret soul, do
you believe ?"
"Wife," was the imploring reply,
"that is the devil which has stood
between us and Heaven for so
many months. We are both at the
very verge of the grave, und in
God's name let him be buried
first."
Apparently without hearing or
heeding him, she repeated her
words:
"You dare not disbelieve."
"I do," he replied, excited by her
manner, "while you are dying
nay, if you were dead, and should
speak to me, I dare not believe."
"Then," she said, "I will speak to
you when I am dead ! I will come
to you at your latest hour, and with
a voice from the grave, I will warn
you- of your time to follow me 1"
"But I shall not believe a spirit ,n
"I will come in the body, and
speak to you ; remember 1" :
She then closed her' eyes ' and
straightway sank into her former
state.
In a few moments as soon as
we had somewhat recovered from
the shock of this most extraordinary
scene her two children were
brought into the room .to. receive
her dying blessing. ' She partially
rou?ed herself, and placing a hand
on the head of each, she put up a
faint prayer to the throne of grace
-faint in voice, indeed, but a
prayer in which all the strength of
her unpolished soul, heart and
mind was exerted to its utmost
dying limit such a prayer as a
seraph might attempt, but none
but a dying wife and mother could
accomplish. From that moment
her breathing grew rapidly weaker
and more difficult ; and at twelve
o'clock she expired apparently
without a struggle.
I closed her eyes, straightened
and composed her limbs, and was
about to leave the house, when
Mrs. Green requested me to send
over tw'6 ' young ladies from my
boarding house to watch with the
dead. All this occupied somo ten
minutes.
Suddenly Mrs. Miles screamed,
and Mr. Ilayden started up from
the bedside, where he had been
sitting.
The supposed corpse was sitting
erect in the bed, and struggling to
speak. Her eyes were still closed,
and, save her open mouth and quiv
ering tongue, there were all the
looks of death in her face. With a
great heave of the chest, at last the
single word came forth :
"IJemember 17
Her jaw fell back in its place,
and she again lay down as before.
I now examinee her minutely.
That sho was dea l there could be
no further possible shadow of a
doubt; and so I left ther house.
On the following day Dr. Wil
liams made a careful and minute
post mortem examination of the
body. I was prevented by business
from attending, but I was informed
by the doctor that he found the
brain but slightly affected an un
usual fact in persons dying of ty
phus fever but that her lungs
were torn and rent extensively, as
if by a sudden, single and powerful
effort, and suffused partially with
coagulated blood. These were all
the noticeable features of the case.
She was buried on the afternoon of
the same day.
! .' , . . '
About two weeks after the death
of his wife I was called to visit Mr.
Ilayden. On my way I met Dr.
Wiiliams, and told him my errand,
expressing , some surprise, at the
preference of the family for myself?
as I hnw him to be a safe 'and ex
perienced practitioner; " Ho re;
plied that. nothing cou'lil induce
him to enter that house. He had
srmi:i:i -.u . i
"seen things that well, I would
find out when I got there."
' On my arrival I found no person
present with the patient except
Mrs. Green, who informed mo that
the spirits. had been playing such
pranjssthat not a soul, Dr. W, in
cluded could be inducod to remain.
The children had been gono for
some . time ; they were at her
house, t . . i
, I fOimd the patient very low, and
with ni prospect f surviving the
nttack.1' He was, however, quite
free frcm pain, though very weak.
'While in the house I noticed
many manifestations of tho pres
ence of the power called spiritual
ism. 'Chairs and tables . were
moved, and removed, billets of
wood thrown upon tho fire, and
doors opened and shut without any
apparent agency. I heard strug
gles and unaccountable noises, too,
and felt an unusual sensation,
caused, no doubt, by the n'steries
which surrounded and mocked me.
Noticing my manner, the patient
observed r . . -
"ItV, nothing. You must get
used to it, Doctor." . .
"I should not be content unless
I couldyexplain them, as well as be
come 'indifferent to them," I re
plied. "
Ti5 opened the way to along
conversation, during which I
E robed my patient's mind to the
ottoni, but without detecting a
shadow of belief. Speaking tf
wife,1 he said:
"You heard , Helen promise to
warn me of my time to die ?"
"I did but you do not believe
her?"' . '
"No. It it is possible, sho will
keepher word, in spite of heaven
or hell. But it is simply impossi
ble. ' She promised to come in body
and sWak to, me. I shall uccept
no other warning from her save tho
literal meaning of her words."
"And what then V
"How much of her body is there
left, even now, Doctor? and she has
not come yet. She promised to
come from the grave. Can she do
&tirniv; it i all. a humbug a
delusion. Poor Helen! Thank
God, Doctor, the deviltry which so
haunted her life, and stood between
her soul and
her now." '
mine, cannot reach
-"But if she should come! You
may be deceived."
"I cannot. Others must see her
too, and hear her. I shall believe
no spectre, if thero are such tilings.
Her body as it is, or will be, let
that speak if it can!
From that day up to tho hour of
his death I was with him almost
constantly, and was daily intro
duced to some new and startling
phenomenon. The neighbors had
learned to shun the house, and
even the vicinity, as they would the
plague ; and strange stories tra
veled from gossip to gossip, ac
quiring more of the marvelous at
every repetition. Nevertheless,
my practice increased.
On the morning of March 20,1
called earlier than usual. During
the visit, the manifestations of a
supernatural presence were more
frequent', wild and violent than
ever before. I was informed that
they had been exceedingly violent
during the preceding night. Their
character, too, had greatly changed.
Beside the moving of all movable
articles, the tinkling of glasses and
the rattle of tin ware, there were
frequent and startling sounds, as of
wliianprpiT ponvorsntinna Kinirinnl
,...J.V.V . , W...J p,
and subdued laughter all perfect
imitations of thehuman voice, but
too low to enable me to detect the
words used, if words they were.
Still, however, none of these un
usual sounds had entered the sick
room. They followed tho footsteps
of Mrs. Green like a demon echo,
but paused on the threshold of that
room, as if debarred by a superior
power from entering there.
I found Mr. Ilayden was worse,
and sinking very fast. He had
passed a bad night. Doubtful
whether he would survive to see
another morning, I left him prom
ising to call at evening ia my se
cret thought, to be "in death." If
there was to be a ghostly warning,,
I meant to hear it, and, if possible
to solve the strange enigma. ,
,:.
The day had been exceedingly
cold and stormy, and the night had
already set, in, dark and dismal,
with a fierce gale, and a driving
storm ; of rain and hail, when I
again -stood beside my patient
The moment I looked at him, I
perceived unmist akable indications
of the- near- approach of death,
upon his features. He was free
j
from pain, his mine perfectly clear,
but his life was ebbing away with
every feeble breath, like the slow
burning out of an exhausted lamp.
Meanwhile the Ftorm rose to a
tempest, and the gloom grew black
as death in the wild night without.
The : wind svt'pt in tremendious
gusts through the adjoining forest
rattling the ..icy branches of the
trees, and came wailing and shriek
ing through every crack and cran
ny of the building. .
Within there was yet wilder com
motion, All that had been said or
sung, wrilten or dreamed of ghostly
visitations,'was then and there en
acted. There was the ringing ol
ells, moving of furnithre, crash of
dishes, whispers, howls, 'crying,
laughter, whistling, heavy., ami
light footsteps, and light music, as
in very mockery of the infernal
regions. All these sounds grew
wifrd midnight, they were almost'
insufferable. .
As for us three the'patieiit, Mrs
Green and nivselfw:f. worp i si-
ureenana mjseii Me were as si-
lent 8 death, itself. .. .Not a WOrJ
passed our,' lips after nine o clock.
As for the state of our minds. Go.l
only Knows. - Mine, in , the wide
world of thought and event which
followed, forgot all the. past, save
what I have recalled and penned,
bit by bit, above. I remember on
ly looking for the final catastrophe,
which grew rapidly nearer, with a
constant endeavor to concentrate
all my faculties of mind and sene
upon the phenomenon which I, at
least, had begun to believe would
herald the loss of my patient.
' As it grew closer upon twelve
o'clock, (for upon the striking of
that hour had my thoughts fixed
themselves for the expected de
monstration,) my agitation became
so great that it was with extreme
difficulty could control myself.
Nearer nnd nearer grew the fa
tal moment for fatal I knew it
. . ... . : -
would be, to the patient, at least-
and at last the seconds trembled on
the brink of midnight; the clock
began to strike one two three I
I counted the. s.trnkp of the lijini
mer, which seemed as though they
never would have done ten elev
en twelve! .1 drew my breath
again. The last lingering echo of
the final stroke had died away, and
as yet there was no token of any
presence save our own.
All was silent. The wind had
lulled for a moment, and not a
sound stirred the air within the
house. The ghosts had fled.
I arose and approached thebed
ciAcs Tim rvi t i,n f n-no fiK- 1imi- 1
. ...v. .v, j,... ...-, u,, ,..,.-,
inghis breath very slowly-dying, i
intervals between his gasps
grew longer-then he ceased to
altogether-he was dead.
Mrs. Green was sitting in her ,
place, her elbows resting on her i
knees, her face buried in her hands. !
1 closed t ie open mouth and press-
ed down the eyelids of the dead.
Then I touched lier on the shoulder.
"It is over," I whispered.
"Thank God!" was tho fervent
reply.
Then we both started. There
was a rustling of the bedclothes! ;
Mr. Ilayden was sitting erect, his
eyes wide open, his chest heaving ,
in a mighty eflbrt for one more in-1
spiration of the blessed air. Ucfore !
I could reach the bed he spoke: 1
"Mv God! she is coining!''
At the same instant the wind
come back with a sudden and an-1
gust and a wild shriek as it
swept through the crevices of the!
building. There was a crash of the
outer door, then a staggering and

Through the open door there
stepped a figure, not of Mrs. Hay-,
den, not of her corpse, not of ieath,
but a thousand times more horrible
a thing Of corruption, decays of
worms, and rottenness.
The features were nearly all gone
and the sknll in places gleamed
through, white and terrible. Her
breast, abdomen and neck M ere
eaten away, her limbs were putrid,
