A GLOOMY OLD LEGEND OF THE TOWN
OF BUCKSPORT, ME.
The ImprrcalloB mmA Prophecy of
t.a Caadeward Wemaa oat the
scaffold Recalled by at Straage
Dlenalah on Col. Back' Tombstone.
Close by the country road on the out
skirts of the bleepy old seaport town of
BncksDort. on the Penob9cot, down in
Maine, is a email family cemetery.
"Within the inclosnre. with its high iron
fence, in the quiet and almost gloomy
shade, sleep the Bucks, the blueblooded
and aristocratic clan which first settled
the town and bequeathed it their nam
and a legend.
Of the many moss grown tablets and
monuments the largest and most con
spicuous is a tall granite shaft in plain
sizht of the highway. On one side is
COL. JOHN BUCK,
The Founder of Bucksport.
A. D. 1760.
Born in Haverhill. Mass., 1713.
Died March 18, 1705.
On the other 6ide is the single word
"Buck," and also something not
wrought by the marble worker. On the
smooth surface of the pedestal is a
enrions outline, irregular and describ
ing that which can easily bo imagined
to bo the form of a foot of normal size
Some people say that it is a foot, but
those are of the superstitious town folk
who believe the legend which has been
choice 6tock in Bucksport for many
They that delight in perpetuating
this story say that Colonel Jonathan
Buck was a very stern and harsh man
and tho leading spirit of his day and
generation. His word was law in the
community. He was the highest in civil
authority and his decision as immova
ble as the granite hills that loom up in
the haze of tho northern horizon.
He was most Puritanical, and to him
witchcraft -was the incarnation of blas
phemy. Thus, so the story goes, when
a certain woman was accused of witch
craft, at the first clamoringsof the pop
ulace Colonel Buck ordered her to bo
imprisoned, and later, after a mere
form of a hearing, she was sentenced to
be executed as a witch. She pleaded to
Buck for her life, but as to a heart of
The day of the execution came and
the condemned woman went to the gal
lows cursing her jndge with such terri
ble imprecations that the people shud'
dered, but the magistrate stood untnoV'
ed and ma do a sign to the officers to
hasten the arrangements. All was ready
and the hangman was about to perform
his grewsome dnty when the woman
turned to Colonel Buck and raising one
hand to heaven as if to direct her last
words on earth pronounced this astound
'Jonathan Buck, listen to these
words, the last my tongue shall utter.
It is the spirit of the only true and liv
ing God which bids me speak them to
you. You will soon die. Over your
grave they will erect a stone, that all
may know where your bones are crum
bling into dust. Bat listen I Upon that
stono the imprint of my feet will ap
pear, and for all time, long after your
accursed race has perished from the face
of the earth, will tho people from far
and near know that you murdered s
woman. Remember well, Jonathan
Buck, remember welll"
Then she turned to her executioners
and another act, one of the forever in
effaceable blots, was made a part of
American colonial history.
The "witch's curse," as it was call
ed, and is to this day, was almost for
gotten until many years afterward, when
the monument was erected to the mem
ory of Bucksport's founder. It had been
- ... , 1 1 . 1 1 ! .
in poeuion uarcuy a momn wnen a isiut
outline wa9 discovered upon it. This
gradually grew more and more distinct
until some one made the startling dis
covery that it was the outline of a foot
which somo supernatural draftsman
had traced on the granite. The old leg
end was revived and the Buck ceme
tery was for years the Mecca of the su
perstitious and curious for miles around.
The "witch's curse" had been ful
filled, they said. An attempt was made
to remove the 6 tain, but all efforts tend
ed only to bring the outline out in bold
er relief. The stain or whatever it was
seemed to penetrate to the very center
of the etone.
The hinges of the big gate have
creaked for the last time to admit a
Buck. The last of the race has been
laid to rest, beneath tho oaks and ma
ples, and the setting ran throws the
shadow of the once mighty Colonel
Jonathan Buck's monument athwart
the double row of mossy mounds, as if
still exerting his authority, and the
same rays light that mysterious tracing
held up to the new of all that pass and
repass along the- dusty turnpike.
The imprint of the foot is a fact, and
is there today as plain as ever. The
legend of the "witch's curse" may or
may not be a fact The fanciful defend
the legend, but the practical point out
the apparent discrepancy between the
dates of the era of witchcraft persecu
tion and the regime of Colonel Buck.
They say that the stain is simply an
accidental fault in the granite, and that
the legend was made to fit the foot and
not the foot the legend. But the foot is
there. Philadelphia Inquirer.
A Witty Gallery Gal.
At a performance of "Faust" in Cork,
Ireland, the gentleman who enacted the
part of Mephistopheles was so stout that
the trapdoor was too small to permit
his descent to the infernal regions, and
all of his person above the waist was
still visible over the stage. One of the
gallery gods, noticing his dilemma, ex
claimed, "Begorrv the place is full!"
Adventure 'With at Tteer.
Colonel R-, an English officer station
ed in India, met with a singular adven
ture while tiger hunting in which he
lost an arm. The colonel had wounded
a tiger from an elephant's back. The
tiger charged, and the elephant, taking
frisrht. bolted through the jungle. To
save himself from being brained and
swept off by overhanging branches.
Colonel It. seized a stout limb and, rais
ing himself, left the elephant to go on
alone klirough the forest To his dismay
he found he had not strength and agil
ity sufficient to swing himself up to sit
on the branch. In vain he strove to
throw a leg over and so raise himself.
Looking down, the sportsman discov
ered that the tiger had spotted him and
was waiting below. The horror of the
situation can be imagined the enraged
tieer and the helpless, dangling man

Facta Aboat Iiotkermle Maps That
Are Rovrely Lcarscd at School.
- Here are some definitions of isotherms
that . appear in American textbooks of
"Those lines which are drawn through
places with an equal average of temper
ature are called isotherms,
"Isotherms are lines connecting
places having the same mean tempera
ture for particular periods, as the whole
of the year, the winter or summer
"If upon a map all places having
the same mean temperature are con
nected by lines, such lines are called
isothermal lines or simple isotherms."
- These definitions are part of tho
truth, but not the whole of it It may
not be a great calamity, but the fact is
that most boys and girls leave school
with a misconception as to what an
isotherm is. and they rarely find out in
They all know that two elements.
latitude and altitude, are the main fac
tors in determining the mean temper
ature of a place; that the farther a
placo is from the equator and the higher
it stands above sea level the cooler its
climate is. But they do not know that
isothermic maps take into account only
one of these elements, and that is lati

altitude- The isotherm passing over the
top of Pike's peak does not show the
mean temperature at the summit of the
mountain, but what the mean temper
ature would be in that immediate neigh
borhood if the land, instead of rising
high above the sea. stood at tho level of
Do you see tho reason for this? It
may be easily explained. Most of the
land does not rise so high above the sea
that the temperature is greatly' affected
by altitude. To the majority of man
kind latitude is a far more Important
climatic element than altitude. Tsow,
the effects on temperature of both lati
tude and altitude cannot well be shown
on one man, and isothermic maps were
devised to show the effects of latitude
and some other element such as posi
tion near the sea or in the far interior.
An isothermic line, therefore, does not
show the actual mean temperature of
place on it unless that place is at sea
level. But it is easy to deduce from the
isotherm the actual mean temperature
of a place, if we know its elevation
above the sea. How this is done is very
clearly explained by Dr. H. K. Mill,
the British geographer, as follows :
"The air grows cooler by 1 degree 1.
for every 270 feet of elevation above
sea level, but isothermic lines show the
sea level temperature. In using isother
mic maps we mnst therefore remember
that places 600 feet above the sea level
have a temperature 2 degrees lower
than the isotherms indicate ; places
6,000 feet above the sea. 23 degrees
lower; those 12,000 feet above the sea,
45 degrees lower, and the mountain
slopes 18,000 feet above the sea no less
than 66 degrees lower than the sea level
temperature shown by the isotherms.
This accounts for the fact that none of
the important towns in the temperate
zones is situated more than 2,000 feet
above the sea, while in the tropics they
are built at as great elevations as 8, 000
or 10,000 feet"
Weather charts are an - exception to
this rule. They record the actual
thermometrical readings at the points

proached a station the woman suddenly
tore her hat from her head, disheveled
her hair and as the train camo to a
standstill put her head out of the win
dow and shrieked for assistance.
The railroad officials hurried to the
scene, and to thenfc the woman asserted
that she had been terribly insulted by
the prince. The prince did not stir from
his seat but continued tranquilly smok
ing his cigar, and the station master
exclaimed, "What have you got to say

Without the slightest appearance of
concern the prince, who was seated in
the farther corner of the carriage, re
plied. "Only this, " and with that he
pointed to his cigar, which showed a
beautiful gray ash considerably over an

The station master was wise in his
generation, and on perceiving the ash on
the prince s cigar he touched his hat
and said quietly, "That's all Tight
