Do Ghosts Haunt Swamps?
No. Never. It's foolish to fear a fan
cied evil, when there are real and deadly
perils to guard against in swamps and
marshes, bayous and lowlands. These
are the malaria germs that cause ague,
chills and fever, weakness, aches in the
bon^s and muscles, and may induce
deadly typhoid. But Electric Bitters
destroys and casts out these vicious
in rms from the blood. "Three bottles
drove all the malaria from niy system,''
wrote Win. Fretwell, of Lucama, N. C .
"«nd I've had tine hpalth ever since.''

AN ARCTIC RESCUE
The Finding of the Survivors of
the Greely Expedition.
STAYED THE HAND OF DEATH.
The Seven Starved and Half Crazed
Dying Men Were Wearily Waiting
For the End When Came the Shout
That Told Them Relief Was Nigh.
In his story of the I C \i>-.- rem
nants of the iii fated Greely expedi
tion at Cape Sabine in ]s.M Frank B.
Copley in the American Magazine
gives a dramatic description of the ac
tual finding of the starving survivors.
On June 21 a furious gale blew down
the tent, which the despairing men
had not the strength to raise again.
On the 22d the gale continued, and the
men felt that the end of their long
struggle had come.
In the evening all the men were in
their bags, waiting for death. Greely.
Frederick, Biederick, Elisou and Con
nell were under the fallen canvas of
the tent. Brainard and Long were
under the fallen canvas of the adjoin
ing shelter. It remained light, of
course, the sun at this season being
continuously above the horizon. Con
nell passed into the unconscious state
which was the prelude of death. The
other six men, supremely Indifferent
to everything, lay idly dozing.
But the evening still was young
when, seemingly from a distance, there
came a sound that forced itself upon
their attention. Once came the sound!
Twice came the sound! Three times
came the sound: Each time it was a
long, insistent screech.
At first it was annoying, as any
sound is that gradually forces die to
leave one's pleasant dreams and awake.
But with the second repetition of the
screech Brainard and Long sat up and
looked at each other.
From under the canvas of the tent
came the complaining voice of Greely.
"Brainard, did you hear it?"
"What was it?"
"I think—l am pretty sure—that it
was the whistle of a steamer."
There was something of a stir under
the fallen canvas of the tent. Bieder
bick had aroused himself and seized
the bag containing their last bit of
brandy. Two spoonfuls were left.
Biederbick forced one down the thru;:!
of the dying Connell. If they actually
Mere going to be rescued Connell
should have :i chance to live. The
other spoonful of brandy Biederbick
offered to his commander. When Gree
ly declined it Biederbick sent it t<> fol
low the other spoonful down the throat
Greely dow asked Brainard and Long
if they could get out from under their
canvas and report if anything was to
be seen. They said they felt able to
climb to the high, rocky point on the
ridge where Brainard bad set a signal
"Do your best." said Greely.
Slowly and painfully Brainard and
Long crawled up the narrow path in
the snow to the point which command
ed a broad view of the sea. There
was much open water, but nothing
was to be seen on it save the old
monotonous floes and bergs.
Long said they must have been mis
taken in the nature of the sound they
had heard. Brainard agreed. Afier a
few minutes Brainard, chilled through,
said he would go back and report to
Greely. Long, who was more warmly
clad, said he would stay up there a
When Brainard, in reporting to Gree
ly, again expressed the opinion that
they had been deceived the opinion
seemed to be accepted by all the men
under the tent. Brainard crawled back
into his bag. fully believing that he
never would leave it again and fully
resigned to the prospect
Presently Biederbick began to argue
that the fact that no ship was to be
seen from the point above them did
not necessajjly indicate that they had
been deceived in believing that the
sounds they heard were those of a
ship's whistle. He suggested that the
ship might be in Payer harbor, which
could not be seen from their ridge.
Greely aroused himself sufficiently
to say that he did not consider this
probable. B&ederbick, however, went
on arguing in his persistent German
way that help was near. At length
Greely, whose nerves were a wreck
and whose mind was fast giving way,
turned on Biederbick and cursed him
for making a disturbance.
"Shut up." he ordered, "and let us
die in peace!"
So once more there was quiet.
Lying outside La his bag. Brainard
vaguely wondered if he ever again
would soe Long.
Presently he heard footsteps.
Some one was coming.
It could not be Long.
Whoever was coining was running.
God—he was running]
Then came a shout—the shout of a
hale and hearty man.
'<>■■>■ ';/.' Gn ' lyl Are ye tin r< f
Then' was no mistaking the voice
with Its Scotch Irish accent. The
foii-e was that of .Tames \V. Norman,
Ice master on the Proteus when that
steamship transported the Greely ex
pedition to Lady Franklin bay three
years bef ire.
As Norman shouted two big ships of
the United States navy were anchor
ing just at the foot of the ridge.
Seven men out of twenty-rive lived
until the evening of June 22. Another
hour and probably only six would
have been found alive. Two days
more and in all probability the last
roan would have been found dead.
