THE SPECTER SWIMMER.
A Legend of the Sea That Still Appeals
The sailor as a class still holds fast
to the superstitions that have been his
especial heritage throughout all ages.
To him the sea is still peopled with
phantoms. Men there are still who sail
the sea believing in the power of the
Swimmer, men who believe in the Wal
rus of unholy fime and in the exist
ence of the spe:cer bark Lucy to be
seen at any time dodging In and out of
the creeks and bays of the South Caro
lina coast. This is the tale of the Swim
Near Cape Finisterre there lived a
fisher maiden in days when the world
asked fewer questions than now, and
with her lived her fisher sweetheart.
On their wedding night, runs the yarn,
smugglers came down on their village,
a thieving, drunken band. When they
left, having done all the damage they
could, the fisher maiden's sweetheart
had disappeared. whether with them
or through them was never known.
Instead of p!ning uselessly, as would
most women. she dressed herself in
men's clothes and started t- find him,
dead or alive.
For years she wandered over the
earth and ocean, and. though her dis
guise was penetrated several times
and she passed through a host of trou
bles which vary with each telling, she
succeeded in keeping up her hunt. Fi
nally after escaping from an English
prison the vessel she was on was lost
at sea, and the simple Breton fisher
men enshrined her in a legend which
has her forever swimming the seas
still in search of the man she loved
and hailing each craft she nears. A
sailor. be he Yankee or Portuguese,

grossly superstitious. believes firmly

A Ruse Which Roused Lord Duc:cy
and Formed a Friendship.
One of the earls of Dudley, who was
addicted to the practice of thinking
aloud, found himself in a very awk

the house of a friend and ordered his

Silence followed this bit of audible

THE POOR CAT
One Oc,.asion When the Animai Did
Not Come Back.
When the cat died the whole family
went into mourning, figuratively if not
literally. No common back door cat

all honor. The question was how and
Some one proposed cremation. but
this was rejectet on the grouni that
it sounded too much like lynching. It
was finally proposed that the father,
-.!o had to cross a ferry every day to
his place of business. should drop it
overboard, and as a burial at sea rath
er appealed to the sentimental attitude
of the family this idea was received
The following morning the remains
of the cat were niade into a package
and securely tied. It was a lovely day,
and the ferryboat was crowded with
passeigers. and what had seemed so
simple at home assumed unexpected
difficulties in the face of a curious
crowd, ready to imagine anything and
to put the worst construction on an ap
parently mysterious action.
Finally it occurred to the father that
the best time would be the evening,
and he could slip the cat overboard
without attracting notice in the dusk.
Through the day it occupied a corner
of his office, and.he was glad when the
time came for the return trip.
He waited until the boat was well
out in the stream and then. glancing
around furtively. laid hIs hand on the
package. Suddenly it struck him what
would seem strange in broad daylight
would seen doubly so at night.
With a smothered groan he rejlaced
it on the se!f beside him. There was
no heulp for it-he would have to carry
it home again.
As lie took his seat in the train that
was to convey hima the rest of the way
he placed thec cat on the shelf aohve
h!s head a1nd for the first tie that
day forgot all about it. HIurryinig to
get off the car when he reached his
destination, he was halted by some one
behind him. who thrust into his land
the ill fated package.
When he reached his house lie threw
it down on a chair in the ball and went
in to supper. In the middle of it the
maid came in and asked how she
should cook the meat he had brought
"Meat" he exclaimed. "That isn't
meat ! It's"
But at this moment the maid pro
duced the package and showed him a
choice piece of meat. History does not
say what the man said who got the
cat.-New York Sun.
