The Test of a Ghost Story ta tbe Temper,

""Homo of tbo Old Timers That Are
Now Almost Forgotten.
It is to be hoped that not many persons are
prooi against me weird fascinations of a reg
ular old fashioned 'host storv. A trhoet storr
that is, a good one so thrill tag and so
grapuo, so fearful and so plausible as to send
the cold chills roclntr un and dnwn nnn'a
spinal column, is as good iu its way as a love
story, meteiiinf of ghost stories seems to
be almost a lost art. .(t b rarely that a good
new one gets into print. We seem, indeed,
to have outgrown them, to have so much
keener facilities fir seeing through them and
explaining them away, that they no longer
appeal to us. Beyond all doubt the crucial
test of a ghost story, or any tale bordering on
the supernatural. 19 the cold chills racino- on
and down one's spinal column. In fact, one
bad best trust to oae's backbone than to one's
brains in a reciti J of this kind. "Franken
stein" is considered to be a f earf ul book, but It
requires a distinot effort of the lmacination
to thrill over the gigantic monster of one's
own creating. In this sense, roe's "Black
Cat" is not so successful as his "Murder in
the Rue Morgue.' These, however, cannot
oe called gnost stories.
THE NEW TOKK "WHAT 13 IT."
Years ago there was published in the
Harper's Mnsazin a ghost story, entitled
"Whatlaltr It was the story of a New
York house that was haunted. A party of
young students undertook to solve the mys
tery, mey slept in the house, and dur
ing the nlzht sotneJiturr foil from the cnilinir
upon a bed and i nmcdiately began to grap
ple wun tue two men lying there. A terrible
tight ensued, the Tolug it is always proper,
polite and more frightening to refer to a
ghost as a Thlnj; groaiwd and breathed
heavily, and the toui-b of it was something
to freeze tbe blocd in the veins. Finally it
was overpowered, tied down to the bed with
a rope and a light brought. Nothing was
there 1 At least no thinsr ris-ibla. Thevcmilil
touch it, bear its b -Bathing, see the bed shake
wim its struggles but the. Thine itself was
invisible. It final y died pitifully of starva
tion ana was buno.1 in tbe cellar! Then in
cidents recalled from memory after a lapse
of many years maile the material tor nnn of
the best conceived and best related ghost
stories that over get Into print.
In polite society a belief in crhosts ia nnr.
exactly permissible; at least not in the kind
tnat ciank chains, persistently walk up and
down stairs all nisht and co throuch looked
doors aud stone walls. None the less, eves
in polite society, th ij have their fascinations.
Mr. Frank Stockton, we believe, It was
who told very clusely the story of a rich
American family who became owners of a
haunted house in Ilngland, and who refused
to be "downed" by any bloated British shade
of however musty antiquity and renown.
They were considerably postered by the
ghost, but provided it with oil to Umber un
its rusty chains; vith a patent annihilator
tney removed the deadly bloodstains and
finally wore the gh ist out. He we beg par
don it revealed its unbur,ied bones, to which
they gave a decei t burial, and they lived
ever after in peace. In Euclond and in manr
parts of this counti y a family ghost is an in
evitable part of one pedigree. It is thought
as much of as a cout of arms, and while the
owners pretend to tiisbelievo in it themselves,
they certainly like to make it appear that
every one else is far from being so rational.
CO IX) BSD PEOPLE BEUZVG IN GHOSTS.
In a certain fine old family house in Mis
souri the family cheat appears only in the
mirror of a cartaii. room. The reflection is
that of a young r-ornan with silvery white
hair streaming down either sido hex beautiful
face. She is dresead in the costumna nf t)
early part of this omtury. An enticing Vir
ginia story is that cf a pair of scissors, held
in a shadowy hand, snipping, snipping papers,
clothes, even the hair upon the heads of the
InmatflB of the housa, and which very proba
bly considerately stood on end for the con
venience of this mj'sterioua barber. In the
same mansion a woman dressed in scarlet is
seen shaking a wh te cloth from a garret
window. .After tur appearance it being
well understood sin is a ghost fresh, wet
blood stains are found on all the piled stores
of linen In the chest i of the linen closet.
New Orleans is full of haunted house. A
story is told of one house where no human
power can keep the doors fastened. They fly
open in spite of bolt and bar. The old
haunted house on Iloval street is known to
everybody, and its bile has been told In every
newspaper in tne loud. At one urns this
house was used as a school, but it to said all
the board of directoiu had not power to make
the pupils attend from any district.
Netrroes believe imuUcitlv in cheats or
spirits. They are nc t afraid of them, accept
ing tnem as innocently as a utue cnild ac
cepts fairies and Santa Claua, but the tales
they tell are crude and inartistic, To an
illiterate negro a ghost is in the nature of a
religious experience. Any old colored
mammy can give a dozen such personal ex
periences, but the writer of tales of mystery
must go higher tiiaa this for his sources of
information. Children are brought un to
have a horror of ghosts; that is, they are
taught to believe Li them. Children and
women aud men a well, for the matter of
that cannot be better taught than that the
only use for a ciiost story is to while awav
an idle hour, and to give an amusement,
mingled with a fictitious fear, which we thus

THE ARIZONA KICKER.
A Few Earnest Kicks from the Enterpris
We take the following extracts from a late
Issue of The Arizona Weekly Kicker: :
: "ApOLOomcaL. We are compelled to
apologise to our subscribers for the typo
graphical appearance of the present issue.
Owing to the snow blockade, a keg of ink
which we ordered weeks ago failed to reach
us, and rather than miss an issue we com
pounded a substitute. We dont seem to have
hit the right proportions, or else molasses
and lampblack are not the proper substi
tutes. "As it will be impossible for subscribers to
make out any of the reading matter, we will
solace them with the statement that there
little or nothing worth reading. We hadn't
much time to give to the paper last week,
and it is just as well that we hadn't. It would
have been time thrown away."
"Thb Usual Rxwxrd. We understand
that' Arizona Joe, Col Hilton, Dick Fenahaw
and other ingrates are going about with the
statement that we were horsewhipped by th
Widow Burnham one day last week. When
we refer to these hyenas as living liars, wedo
so in all gentleness. We cant afford to get
mad and kick such freaks of nature. Arizona
Joe is wearing a collar we lent him from our
slim stock, and if anyone will rip the colonel's
coat down the back he will find one of our
undershirts surrounding the Ingrate's body.
When Diok Fenshaw struck this town be
hadn't eaten anything but pig weed for three
days, and he was trying o make a pack of
cords cover his nakedness. We filled his
stomach, gave him a coat and lifted him out
of the slough. This is our reward. Sick
transit! Sick gratitude! Sick hyena!"
"Welcome Back. Professor Whitewater
entered The Kicker office day before yester
day with beaming smile and extended hand,
after an absonce of about ten months spent
in the penitentiary. He was unfortunate
enough, it will be remembered, to hurt some
one in a little dispute, and the court thought
it best for him to take a little vacation.
"The professor returns home looking in
good health aud filled with enthusiasm over
the progress the town has made during his
absence. We welcome him. A little state
prison experience hosnt hurt him, nor wont
hurt any of our townsmen.' Detroit Free
A Story About Dn Marnier.
In appearance Mr. Du Muurler bears a
striking resemblance to Mr. Alma Tadema.
This likeness has given rise to many amusing
complications. Some time ago, at a dinner
party, he happened to sit next to a daughter
of his host. "I cannot understand," remarked
the young laxly, "how people can he so ab
surd as to mistake you for Mr. Tadema. To
me the likeness is very slight" A little later
she said: "Oh, I bought your photograph the
other day. Would you mind er putting
your autograph to it!" Mr. Du Maurier ex
pressed his willingness, and later on in the
evening the young lady conducted him to a
writing table and handed him the photo
graph for his signature. Mr. Du Maurier
looked at it, sighed, and then laid it very
gently on the table. "That," be said, "is Mr.
Alma Tadema 's portrait." London Globe.
