CURIOUS FANCIES ABOUT SPIRIT9
IN THE OZARKS.
Blood Spot Tlimt Can Paly lie Uarnod
Oat Ghoata of Murdered Men Stalk
A boot at Night A Belief-That tha N tim

"It will never come out until it's burned
out that' what they say." So remarked as
Intelligent business man of Forsyth, Mo.,
pouting to a Mack stain of blood on the floor
of J. & B. Berry's old store, where Capt
Kinney, the Knobber chief, had fallen when
hot to death by young Bill Mile. "A good
many bare tried to scrub out '"M atain,
they aay, but never could do it. "
This ia a common mountain superstition. Tha
mountaineers have noticed that blood stains
ob ootton goods turn black and ar not easily
washed away. They conclude that some su
pernatural power. Instead of a chemical com
bination, keeps the stain there. It is a com
mon practice, they say, to cut out blood
tains and burn them.
If there is any place In the country where
a living spirit of evil, the personal devil, is
believed In unquestioning ly, it is here. Satan
travels up and down the gulches and ravines
and peers In at the open doorways at the
Brandos, or, finding an opou door, "just
melts his way in. " Thoee who have read the
story of the Bald Knobbers will perhaps
think there is good reason for their faith.
But the mountaineer goew further. Re sees
Satan and his imps. There are mysterious
sounds In the woods that is, they are not
understood by him, and be says the spirits
are responsible for the mysteries. Not alone
does be sea the evil spirits, but the souls of
the murdered dpad, he believes, are never at
rert. Capt. Kinney, the dead Klnobber chief,
stalks forth by night clad in mask as of old,
but now with a blgod stained shroud around
him instead of the marshal's coat of blue that
was his prida. That he will seek vengeance
on those who oppose the Knobbers is not
On the other band, there are those a plenty
who ay the old oak from which the Taylor
boy were banged by Kinney's men still
shrieks aud groans in agony es the boys did
vainly for mercy, while the spirit of murdered
Coggburn comes down to the village square,
and there, materializing as a man once more,
throws up its left band, and striving to draw
a revolver falls to get it raised. Then, fall
ing backward on the ground, It burls a
phantom pistol away through the darkness.
They do not believu that the spirits of the
dead seek vengeance vainly. Whenever mis
fortune befalls any out they shake their heads
ominously if be has ever shed human blood.
Sickness, accident, death, are not the results
of bad sanitary conditions or carelessness;
they are the vtntations of Justice loving
spirit. But the fear of future visits of spirits
never acts a a poww to keep the ready hand
from the pistol.
Tha Taney men have nearly all been
converted, according to their understanding
of Holy Writ Preachers and churches
abound. There are twelve preachers In a
population of 7,000 now. What more could
one wish Only the low trash are beyond the
pale of the church. "All the batt citizens of
tha county" are church members. They read
tha Bible carefully, they sing religious hymns
melodiously, they pray aud say am on fer
vently. They give liberally to the poor ; they
are careful to entertain strangers. But some
how they never comprehend the Sermon on
tha Mount or the Seventh commandment.
There la old Uncle John HUiruth. He is the
ramovar of warts for the mountaineer lads
and lassos. The old man flees a piec of
thread six Inches long and tie a knot, draw
ing the knot tiht directly above the wart,
saying some mysterious words as be does it.
The wart goes away, toe mountaineers say,
within a week.
Tha superstition about the number IS has
a curious hold here. They think a combina
tion of 18 people for a purpose will be invin
cible. The Knobbers are said to have organ
ised in groups of 13 at the llrst, and there are
those that belicvo that bad that principle been
adhered to the KnubUirs would have still
ruled the Omrks as they did la 1886. In their
thirst for whipping people they wholly neg
lected to organize gangs of IS or multiples of
that number. Hence their downfall.
There is another curious theory held by
soma of tha mountaineers. Thus, Livery,
man &&y, who carried a visitor from New
York to sea the victims of the Knobbers in
tha vicinity of Sparta, told of a revolver that
be bad, which would sweat drops of blood
when fired under proper circumstances. Two
men had been kilibd with it. When a weapon
has killed two men it will thereafter sweat
drop of blood whenever fired at a living
target An Inanimate target is of no effect,
. WHY THEIR HOGS DIE.
The whips that were used to whip men with
were invariably burned afterward. It would
have brought bad luck to have left a bloody
witch is existence. Various theories about
tha ill luck that would follow were held.
Jarvia Lawrence says that such a whip would
turn to a serpent that would hunt the rnnp
who had used it and avenge Uie blood of the
victim with a bite. There was no use in tak
ing whisky for such a bite. Death was sure
to follow. Another notion is that tha cattle
of the men who used the whip were sure to
find It within a year and lick it with their
tongues. Then they would die of the mur
rain. A little while ago in Sparta the village
hogs that everywhere run the streets in this
country were dying at the rate of three or
four a day right in the street. The reason
was plain enough to one who knew anything
about hog cholera, so called. There was a great
pool of stagnant water near the center of tha
village that was the resort of all the bogs of
tha neighborhood. TUey had wallowed in it
tha season through, and got notning else to
drink save when a rain storm made scarcely
leas illthy pools elsewhere. Why shouldn't
they die' Would the bog owners see iU Not
at all. It was a mysteriuus visitation. Likely
enough when the Knobbers were hanged at
Ozark the hogs would not die any more.
That's what the anti-Knobbers thought and
aid, Tha Knobbers said it was a just infllo
tlon on a people that were going to sacriflos
four victims to blind prejudice, and that,
too, when tha bogs of both factions were
dying. Of course there were others who
thought that the cholera was due to a visita
tion on general principles a sort of a warn
ing to tha whole people to abandon their sins.
Copt. Kinney, the Knobber chief, under
stood the people very well when he devised
tha horned maUt for bis murderous crew. It
is Impossible to appreciate the abject terror
which those masks created among the taw
Jority of those who wore visited. Tha rela
tives of the murdered men in Christian
county, Charley Green and Will Edens, are
unable to go on with their stories when they
eome to describe the impression created by
the masks. Old Mrs. Elizabeth Edens turns
white at the mention of the word and barely
capes fainting. It is said that men who
bad determined to fight and were well fljcad
for a battle lost their courage and wits en
tirely when they saw the masks, and took
their whippings lika cowed curs. New York

It has been estimated that an average of
flva feet of water falls annually over the
whole earth. Suppose that condensation
takes place at an average height of 8,000 feet,
the force of evaporation to supply such rain
fall must equal the lilting of. 8,000,000

YANKEE MILL GIRLS.
The Kind of Toons; Women Who Watched
tha Looms Forty Tears Ago. -VThen,
at tha beginning of the century, the

New England the first opportunity to find
occupation outside their homes sufficiently
important to affect the destiny of any large
number of them. They rushed Into the new

It was not the stupid girl who in that early
day broke away from the monotony of farm

was the bright, eager young women who
went to the mills to earn money and free
themselves from the semi -servitude engen

There are legends also of a generation of
Yankee mill girls who sent to Preston S.
Brooks tbe suggestive tribute of thirty pieces
of silver, after his assault upon Charles Sum

stories ore related belong to a late period in
the history of the Americans' connection with
the manual part of cotton manufacture, and
soma of them were exceptionally striking.
Still, such Incidents indicate something
which it is important to understand, and
that is that the nice girls of New England
for many years became mill operatives. Of
course, 1 do not mean that such labor was
ever aristocratic, but that it passed a certain
social sanction which it does not now com
mand. A consideration of tbe average for

Butevury person who bus been long familiar

essential features of that former time, when
