Two well known geneiueu of this
city drove to Mound City day U-.forc yctrr
day afternoon, cd started bf;k fcbout
eight o'clock in the i veniag. W!;rn within
about two milts of thi city, according to
their story, they saw tLe fig an: of wcxun
robed in white standing in the toad ahevl
of them. They were frightened at first,
but after imbibing several strong draught
of Dutch courage from u flask which one of
them accidentally (?) discovers! la his coat
pocket, they drove toward.- the appi.nition.
Ai they advanced she retreated ; a-d as they
increased the pe J of tlif.ir tors, see in
creasnd her speed, a;:d the
race wr. kept up for mere than
a mile, during which they dicovf.nd that
the womun was barefooted, and that she
had nothing on but a robe de chambre.
The night was cold, aud the pursuers shiv
ered from ita effect?, although well mu3ed
up in heavy overcoats. They finally suc
ceeded in overtaking her, and one of the
men jumped out of tho buggy and attempt
ed to catch hold of her arm in otder to see
whether she was a gr Buiue ghost or only a
woman. Shfl eluded his grasp, however,
and ran to a fence at the side of the road,
and placing her hands at the topmost
board, vaulted over it with case, and ran as
if for dear life across tbe field toward a small
strip of woods at the other side ot the lot.
After she had disappeared from view in
the darkness, our heroes debated the ques
tion ot whether they should follow her or
let her go und drive on towards home.
They finally decided on tho latter course,
and arrived here between 9 aud 10 o'clock.

had juat been raiHed to tho snrface of the
