How Old Vaclo Jik'i Spirit Was Spoodsd
oa Ita Way.
Down south It la Irteretitlng to bear tha
larklea toll about lb "aptrits" a they ait
around the lag wood Hrea, tu their old, tumble
own cabins In the woods Nona can equal
in horror their thrilling atorira nor make
heir listeners fed so truly that tba "apirita"
arc really to be seen.
An old darky. Aunt rVggy by name, waa
n enthusiast on tlie subject. How aba en
joyed tolling us about one eventful evening,
wheo aha was nearly "skeered to death." Sba
waa going to prayer nieetiu' " through tba
lonely pine wooda, and "thiukln right bard
bout do glide Lawd," when, what should aha
but a "stiadder walk In' right dar asida
bor." She told bow she closed ber eyea right
tight so aa not to sea it, but stumbling over an
old stump whieb hapiiened to be in tba way,
she bad to open ber eyea, and "dar it war
agin, right afore ber."
Iiwd 'muafy," site said, "bow she did
run, an' dat fere speerit right artor ber," and
il raina so cloaa that it made her feel cold all
over 1 be guoil old aoul dwlared the "spirit"
did not leave ber until she reached the meet
ing house. There no spirits can enter, aa "de

ONLY STALK BY MOONUOHT
Klie told ua that the "apirita" were only to
si on moonlight nignta, and that aome
timea they looked like long, thin shadons.
dt-t-K.stl in gray. They often bend riht down
over peoplo aud ieer into their faces, whilst
UM-ir bivalb ia like a cold north wind. If
ny one notices them tiiey aigb dolefully, and
tht-n suddenly disappear with a wild shriek
of mocking laughter. Some of them shadows
are a tall aa tha lofty pinea, and aa they toss
tueir long arms wildly in the air, the clinging
draiiury of their shrouds waves in the breeze.
Ibis Iwlief might well be accounted for by
the long clinging Spanish moss, whilst tbe
wind "soughing" through the pine trees
might be compared to the plaintive wall of
some lovely "spirit" hailing from the "Land
f the Dead."
Another old darkey, by the name of Aunt
Siillie, once lived In a log cabin in the wooda
Mhe was a queer little old woman and de-
li t;li ted in tolling us about the "spirits" and
how she could "smell them w hen the moon
shun, though, tha LawJ- be blessed, she'd
never seen 'em."
Some of ua dared to suggest that she might
possibly have reference to the "spirit" of the
little browu jug, hut the good old aoul
itiled to understand our njeuniug. Poor
Aunt Sullie; she is now at home among the
spirits, " aud Is far w ber tliau we are as to
I' nole Joe, auotber of our darky friends,
dwelt in a log t-abtu on our estate, w itbin a
hort distance of the bouse, aud we bad an
excellent opportunity fur observing tha wars
mill customs of the "darkies'' In that part of
he country. One day while the iioor old
man waa driving a team of mules be waa
thrown out of tba wagon and dragged some
distance. Although he was not badl v hurt.
yet he was much suakeu aud could do very
litti work after that.
With care he might possibly hava recov
ered, but his friends seemed to think that it
was about time for "de gude Lawd to take
his soul ;" ao they came tramping in from far
and wide to hasten him ou bis journey. Tbey
ertaluly did so must effectually, for tbey
gave him every possible thing to eat, from
tried alligators to unriie watermelons.
Finally the doctor w ho had been attending
Luc-ie Joa declared him a hopeless case, and
after a futile effort to dUperae the crowd, he
pu-ued bis way out aud left the man to his
BrBEDIfQ HIM OH TBI WAY.
lu a short while the cabin was full of dar
kies singing and praying waiting for Uncle
Joe's soul to take its' flight. The greatest
confusion prevailed, and amid tba din tha
dying man tried in vain to make himself
beard. His wtfe and daughter were watch
iug every breath ha draw, and tolling him to
hurry, fo de gude Lawd waa awaitin' " for
to take blm "cross dat golden ribbar." Mure
and more came crowding tn from all direc
tions and joined in tba monotonous chanting,
until at length Uncle Joa breathed his last.
His friends were now ao excited that they
Jumped and et'-reaiued with joy, clapping their
bands and saying: "Tba gude Lawd hab
taken his soul ; he am gone to de gude Lawd.
Lawd bless poor Brer Joe."
As the shades of evening fell fires were lit
all around the cabin to keep the "spirits'
away, whilst tha darkies sang hymns to cbeer
L ncle Joa on his way. It waa a weird scana.
aa the darky preacher stood there, solemnly
chaining tne nrat una or every hymn, which
was then vigorously sung, or rather shouted.
by the aaTumblud crowd. , All around waa the
darkness of night, save for this one luueJy
spot illuminated by the firelight, showing the
old log cabin tn strong relief against the dark
background o( pine trees. Sucb a howling
aud lamentation as those darkies kept up all
night long. It waa truly pitiful, and only at
early dawn did the weird song end and tba
At nocsa shay all assembled attain at tha
catiin to louow the coma conuuuius: tha r
Uiaina of Uncle Joa, as ba was carried to his
last resting place. All the way the darkies
kept up their low, monotonous chant, until
they reached tha louely grave In tba midst of
the pine woods. Fires were lit at tba head of
the grave to light the wanderer on his way.
aud overhead the pine trees aang a solemn
equiem for tbs traveler to that bourne from
wnuee shores none r jturn.
As the darkies letiuiied homeward tbeir
f uueral chant was changed to a song of joy.
and their appearance iUgestad little of the
solemn scene wbieb bad just taken place.
After Uncle Joa's death the log cabin waa
Inserted, and ia now slowly falling to decay.
Ilia "spirit" ia aupuosed to haunt tba old
home, and at night nothing could persuade a
dui ky to go near the place. As Aunt bailie
told us, if "there war anything she war
afrd on," it would be tu see Uncle Joe's
spu it. It appears be bad uot been very good
during bis lifetime, or else be would have
gone "straight to de gude Lawd," but Aunt
bailie very much feared "dat he'd be a lung
tune gettin' dar."
H tones were now told about mysterious
tights to be seen in the cabin at night, and
how one evenlug a darky rashly veuturuig
iuaide the cabin with the intention of taking
a plauk lying there, suddenly heard a deep
gruff voice saying, "Leave dat plauk right
dur." And It is needless to remark that be
went without awaiting further orders. When
Aunt I'eggy heard about it, she said if his
