If i" ■'" an l| l >ro ««' ov+r the Mrnark-
i e d ?!. n ? 8 of a Kho " t - Tnls K host do**'/
not wait tor nightfall, but goes abroad >
hy day also. Its most frequent nr>*3
pearance has been at a window of th«?^
Margrave school house, where v' i
strange face, peering out, has frighten- .-■
ed many tltnM women. The name thlngrV
bah occurred After dark, and although
scoffing nnlghbors have tried to e«p
nire the Rhnut or person In trie ftChool
building, n hnfl eluded th<Hf effort*, hfnl
the ftffatr 1« as much a mystery today
as evpr.
A group of atvfc-strleken speotAtord
wero watching the windows of the
school house one night When the face
appeared plainly visible In the tnooti
llght. Former Policeman Lyman «-ns
In tho crowd, and undertook to Inven
tion te at close range, but when he ap
proached the window tho unknown
person or thing threw down mlaflilpii ,
from an upper window. This inatorl.il
evidence of jrhoatly malignity wat too
much for some of the crowd, and they
took flight.
The majority remained, hdwever.
backed by the poilcftihin's atsuraHcu
that It was some craiy person. "Wh^fi
he telephoned for Anderaon of the
regular force it was believed that at
last the ghost wouM be caritured. The
policemen again approached the en
trance td tho buliaiiig, but thi« Mrne
tho ghost threw down a h«avy iron
bar and a barrel of Waite paper, nar
rowly mlßslng Ml. Lyniaii. The crowd
strengthened their guard around thn.
building, watching every window on«i
door, while the policemen entered th*
building and pursued the spook tnfOtlgh
the corridors and up stairs. Thay could
not catch eight uf the ghost, but plain
ly heard its footsteps.
Nearlng tho garret the men w*f*
dumbfounded to see that a ladder
leading up into the garret had ntoii
drown up. Positive that the ghost \va*
cornered at last,, one mnn remained
on guard, with n. revolver in each
hund, while the other obtained ixnothrr
ladder. Officer Anderson then tooß his
lantern In his teeth, a revolver in one '
hand and climbed the ladder into the
garret. There lay the other ladder
which had been drawn Up, but not a
trace of the ghost or person could be
found. The floor had no hiding- places'
and the skylight was fast on the In
side. Mr. Anderson sayit he felt his ■
hair rise under his hat when hlB search
of the garret proved the building was B
empty. The guard outside was equally.
positive that no person could have es- B
caped.
A DOG PREVENTS A WRECK
Missouri Pacific Engineer Warned cf
"Trouble Ahead" by Its
Barking
Special to the Herald.
KANSAS CITY, Dec. 25.— Missouri
Pacific train No. 106, from Omaha, was
running around a curve In the Cypress
yards in Kansas City, Kan., about 7
o'clock this morning. In the semi-dark
ness, P. H. Burns noticed a srriaU'yel 4
low dog barking furiously at Fome
thing on the track ahead. Burns could
not see the track around the bend, but
he knew there was a trestle there, so'
he stopped the train and investigated.
He found that the small yellow dog
had probably prevented a wreck. .
A horse had wandered out on the.
trestle, got its feet tangled in the ties
and couldn't get out. Burns and hla
fireman helped the animal out of its
predicament. They cut away parts of
the ties, and it was an hour before the
train could proceed. Then they looked
for the canine hero, thinking: at least,
to give him a pat on the head or a (
hone as a reward, but the dog had dis
appeared.
An Eclipse
Phof.-A. O. Hill of the United Sticea
naval observatory said, before ; sailing'
to study the sun's eclipse. , ....»''
"1 have high hopes of this expe
dition, but a cloud may ruin all. I
desire to tome back overloaded with
priceless solar photographs, but every
thing depends on chanco, and perhaps
I will return us empty-handed as I go
away.
"High hopes, great In
the end, nothing. In this aspect eclipse
expeditious are like the expeditions or
young men from the country, who givf.
up the plow and haste cityward, ex
pecting in a little while to become bank
presidents, captains of Industry and
millionaires.
"Alas, hopes high enough accompany
the expeditions of these youths. The
boy departs bravely. His honest father
and mother while away the long an<l
lonely evenings on the farm with
dreams of his future success. They re
count to one another his innumerable
virtues. Such virtues, they Buy, must:
inevitably lead him to the governor's
chair, to a senatorial toga, to a mayor
alty and ho on.
"High hopes— great expectations — in
the end, nothing, ■ '
"A farm boy from Elizabeth, my na
tive town, went to New York to seuk
his fortue. For six months not a wftril
was heard from him. Then, on* Winter
afternoon his father got this note:
" 'Dear Pa—Meet me under the old
bridge tombrrow night after dark.
Bring with you a blanket or a suit of
clothes. I have a hat" "
An Ignoramus

of the oubway tavern. ■ .

mill a self-made millionaire' took ex
ception to a certain thing he said. The
millionaire declared that he had never
gone to college and he thanked heaven
for it.
The bishop rose instantly. .
" 'Am I to understand,' he Bald, ,'that
the gentleman thank* heaven for his
Ignorance?'
•"Why. yes,' replied the millionaire.
'You can put It that way if you've

"'Then,' retorted Bishop Potter, 'all
I have to say Is that the gentleman haa
