DO THE DEAD REVISIT US?
A Discussion of Stories and Experi
ences Tending to Show That
They Do Sometimes.
New York Sun.
"I have had only one experience
in telepathy," said the man, "but that
was a strong one. I ran away from
home when I was a boy of nine. My
father was cruel to me, but I loved
my mother dearly. I got on a ship
at the Brooklyn docks, bound for I
don't know where. Eventually, after
much roaming. I landed at Bombay,
where I became a printer's devil on
a small paper.
"I was taken ill there of fever, so
ill that I thought I was at the point
of death. That night it was very hot,
but somehow I got out of bed and
stood at the lattice of the open win
That was seven years after I
had run away from home. but I had
never once forgotten my mother. She
was my idol. I prayed to her. In my
trouble I talked aloud to her.
"Well, as I stood there I said to her
that I was sorry I had left her and
caused her so much unhappiness.
That now that I was about to die, I
wanted her to know, too. that I had
always loved her.
"Just then it became a little light
in the east and there began to be a
breeze, cooling the intensity of the
heat. I heard her voice as I am talk
ing to you now:
" 'You will not die.'
"Then it was as if she kissed me as
I stood there.
"I got well and went home to her.
She told me the day and the hour
that I stood at- the lattice in India
talking to her and her answer to me.'
"I believe in such things." said the

was the wreck of himself. His eves
were hollow. his face haggard.
"'What i. the world has changed
vou so?' I asked him.
"'This.' he an,nvered. 'My best
friend died suddenlv and he has been
haunting me. I see him near me al
ways. and I wish he would rest in his
grave and quit haunting me.'
"I know all about that. I know a
man of such splendid physique that
you would have thought. to look at
him, that he would live forever. He
was taken with appendicitis and died
in three days..
"He had beautiful auburn hair-a
splendid mass of it, as thick as could
be. He used to sit, when living, in a
certain chair when he called on me,
and the sunshine coming in at the
window made a soft flame of his hair.
I used to go to the head of the stair.
and watch him come up. his fine hair
gleaming in the dusk of the stairway.
"For weeks after he died, whenever
I entered the room I could see hithi
in that chair with the sunlight on his
hair. Whenever I went out and look
ed down the stairway. I could see the
shine of his beautiful hair as he came
up. You may call it nervousness or
the effect of my constant thought of
hint, but as for me, I believe the spirit
of him was there.
"One proof, to my mind, is this
story of an old manor house that be
longed to an army officer who had
rented it and gone to India. The
house was in the suburbs of London.
The officer had lost an arm.
"A girl whose father had rented
the manor house was stricken with
the kodak fever. She took pictures
of the house, one room after another,
until she had taken them all. Then
she took the films to a London pho
tographer to be developed and print
*ed. After a week or so she called
"'They are very good,' said the
photographer, 'wi:h the exception of
one that is a little dim-the one of
the one-armed man who is sitting in
the library by the table.'
"'WVhat one-armed man?' she ask
ed in amazement. 'There wasn't a
single soul in any room when I took
the pictures. Not a soul.'
"He brought out the pictures of the
library, and there was the one-armed
man sitting sadly there by the table.
Upon investigation it was found that
the owner of the house, the one-armed
army officer. had died suddenly in In
dia on the day on' which she had pho.
tographed his home.
"Was there anything more natural
than this soul should come back on
a visit to his old home the moment it
was freed from his body? Or that
mv friend's soul should come back
anld visit me?" -
Prince George and Prnice Conrad
of Bavaria hawe come to America to
visit the St. Louis fair. They crossed
on the Kronprinz Wilhelm, and1 one
of their fellow passengers said the

'Oh, but that is too much.' :he
"But the prince was eloquent and
persuasive. With innumerable in
stances he proved that the dog never
failed in running down boars-that he
was fearless and invincible. The
prince at last bought him at the exor

He was proud of his purchase. He
thought he had got a bargain. His
joy was great the next morning
when the new hound started a boar
and raced off after it.
The prince. who was on foot, fol
lowed the chase as fast as he could.
In an hour he came upon a woodcut
Did you see a dog and a boar
jass this way?' he asked.
-'es.' said the woochopper.
'low were they getting on?'
SWell. the man answered. 'it
wvas nip and tuck with them. but I
think the dog was a little ahead.'
Both Candidates at Work.
Two of the candidates in the re
cent primary election for governor of
Florida. Robert M. Davis and N. B.
Broward. who won fame by his fili
bustering exploits just prior to the
Spanish-American war, made a house
to house campaign through the rural
districts of the state.
One hot day. Capt. Broward drove
tup to a peaceful farmhouse. and he
found a woman strenuously chopping
wood in the front yard.
The gallar-t captain alighted, bowed
to the woman, and said:
"Madam, excuse me, but I cannot
stand idly and see a lady doing such
hard work. Permit me," and, taking
the axe. the evandidate labored for
thirty minutes until the last stick had
"Now, madam," he said, as he mop
ped the perspiration from his brow,
"if you have a husband you may tell
him tht Capt. Broward called to see
him and that I would appreciatc his
vote for governor of Florida."
The woman. who had- been admir
ing the candidate's ability as a wood
chopper, shook her head dubiously
"Well. I dunno about his votin' fer
you, 'Cause Bob Dav'is is in the back
yard a-milking the cow."

let them be as foolish as they can.
