SCENES ' OF MORE THAN ' FIFTY
Vr.ARS AO RE-ENACTED.
Kills Island, the Government Immi
grant Landing, Is SaUl tu lit tlauntetl
by the Ghosts of Former Criminals of
the Se i Who Were Hanged There.
Kllis island is haunted. There is no
doubt aliout it, for the watchmen who
guard Uicle Sam's immigrant station on
the historic little island say they have seen
sights g ven to few mortals to see, and
have hei.rd moans ami cries and Khouts
which never came from lips of man. More
than thi, one man there knows what it is
to incurt hedi.spleasureof the disembodied.
He was rowling around the ghost well at
the forb dden hour when a heavy spade
wielded by ghostly arms descended on his
head and knock! him senseless. A great
bruise on the back of his head is still there
to confound the incredulous.
At midnight shadowy forms, clad in long
capes and three cornered hats, walk abroad,
ami, arm in arm, make the circuit of the
island. The ghosts are said to lie those of
the pirat ?s hanged years ago on the "pi
rates' tre;" in the shadow of the ancient
governor a house. This house is still stand
ing. It t as delied the ravages of lime, and
its oaker. beams and white ash shingles
are as so ind as they were the day . they
were taken to the island by the villagers
of "Xeu Yorke," who turned out in force
to erect t ie building.
Southeast of the old bouse stands the
pirates' tree." In summer its leaves rus
tle again.' t the shingled side of the house,
and in winter the branches of one gaunt
limb the very one upon which the pirates
were ha lged beats a mournful tattoo
against the low eaves as if sounding the
"long roli" for the souls of the departed
A few f t from the tree is an artesian
well. It was sunk at the expense of the
government, but no water was found, and
after bor ng nearly a thousand feet the
project and well were abandoned. Nothing
but a deep, black hole, four feet in diame
ter and eighty feet deep, now remains to
mark the spot. Four men lost their lives
in that well by being caught in quicksand,
and their bodies were never recovered. The
branches of the pirates' tree extend over
the mouth of the well, and the ghosts of
the pirates make it their headquarters at
midnight, and at that time it is said the
branches of the tree are mightily agitated
and blow upward, as if a great draft is
sued from the depth. of the big hole.
Despite the most searching investigation
the residents on the island cannot account
for the strange sounds and sights in an?
other way than that ghosts are abroad.
A feeling of terror has seized upon the
government employees who are forced to
remain nij;ht after night on the island. At
times when the spirits become unusually
festive, dojrs known to have been securely
locked were violently slammed, and win
dows knovn to have been fastem 1 were
raised and lowered.
Lights have been mvsteriouslv ex
tinguished, and mighty gusts of wind have
come down the chimneys. This latter
strange proceeding is said to be due to t he
fact that the more venturesome ghosts
take speciid delight in rushing down the

as the set ing sun's rays become dimmer
and dimmer and the shades of night en

pervades t le place.
Those on the island say that just before
midnight the wraiths begin to appear, and
they are oi t in lull force when the clock in
Trinity tover begins to toll 12. Sepulchral
tones are h -ard issuing from the direction
of the well. Suddenly a dozen shadowy
forms dreed in lung capes, high top Ijuots
and three cornered hats leap up from the
darkness of the well and dance frantically
about the i dge. Theu the branches of the
"pirates' tree" shake violently, the tree

men and Tieasnrer Manning armed them
selves and sallied forth to find the belated
watchman. They came across him lying
near the doctor's quarters, partially
stunned. When he recovered he said he
heard noises that froze his blood, and lie
fore he could run he was felled by a spade,
which lay near where he had fallen.
Sprague's head was swollen, but it wax not

uncanny an I yelled, "U hosts." There was
a stampede and poor Sprague was left
Straggling behind. He hid himself in a

IIISTOKY OF TUK ISLAND.
The very next night Watchman Jahn
and twoof his assistants set out to unravel
the mystery. They lay in wait near the
well until midnight. At that hour they
were almot-t pet ri tied when they saw the
forms of t.vo men clad in the costumes

the pirate's tree. When they recovered
from their fright the brave watchmen

i I 'The Castled Rhine" Today.
TL whole course of what used to be
railed th castled Rhine now looks like the
lower Thames and smells like Shoreditcji
or Bermondsey. We see a panoramic de
velopment of all the more offensive trades
and guilds of the Middle Ages. Formerly
the Rhenish industries Were mainly con
centrated in the flourishing principality of
Wied, colonized originally by the hard
working . Moravians, or they had been car
ried on from time immemorial in primitive
fashion, as in the manufacture of the mill
stones at Xieder-Mendig. Now the steamer
carries you through volumes of smoke, be
tween a double line of cloth mills, chemical
works, lime kilns and brick fields ot
everything, in fact, that is lucrative, un
wholesome and prosaic.
Nor does theevilend there. Thespirited
proprietors of these enterprises have been
rapidly growing rich and have been hous
ing themselves as befits their rising for
tunes. They have been transmogrifying
and adding to venerable castles; they have
been running up sumptuous mansions ot
the florid composite order in the suburbs ol
the cities, and one of the most audacious ot
the nouveaux riches has actually seated
himself on the summit of the castled crag
of the Drachenfels.
After that sort of thing it would be iu
hypereritical as idle to protest against the
government cutting up the country for the
exigencies of national defense. Indeed,
the circles of detached forts around May
ence and Coblenz blend rather happily with
the broken ground, and the glacis in the
sequestered jioplar groves on the enceinte
of Cologne give character and color to an
otherwise tame and monotonous land
scape. Loudon Saturday Review.
There is nothing to make one realize the
importance of mud indeed, like a journey
up the Nile when the inundation is just
over. You lounge on the deck of youi
dahabieh and drink in geography almost
without knowing it. The voyage forms a
perfect introduction to the study of mud
ology, and suggests to the observant mind
(meaning you and me) the real nature of
mud as nothing else on earth that I know
of can suggest it; for in Egypt ?oxl get
your phenomenon isolated, as it were, from
all disturbing elements.
You have no rainfall to bother you, nu
local streams, no complex denudation; the
Nile does it all, and the Nile does every
thing. On either hand stretches away the
bare desert, rising up in gray, rocky hills.
Down the midst runs the one long line ot
alluvial soil in other words, Nile mud
which alone allows cultivation and life in
that rainless district. The country bases
itself absolutely on mud. The crops are
raised on it, the houses and villages are
built of it, t he land is manured with it, the
very air is full of it. The crude brick
buildings that dissolve in dust are Nile
mud solidified, the red pottery of Assiout
is Nile mud baked hard, the village
mosques and minarets are Nile mud white
washed. I have even seen a ship's bulwarks
neatly repaired with mud. It pervades the
whole land, when wet, as mud undisguised;
when dry, as dust storm. Coinhill Maga
zine. A Retting Captain.
The captain of one rather old and slow
steamer, rinding that he would have to be
a long time in China liefnre he received a
full cargo of tea, and would have probably
to return in ballast, began, to every one's
astonishment, to say thnt, owing to the
repairs that hail been done to his enirines.
he hoped to make a racing passage. Then
still more to the astonishment of the rap
tains of the fast steamers and the world at
large, he commenced to back himself to
make the fastest passage home.
In such very considerable sums of money
did he wager that people began to think
there was something in it, anil the mer
chants sent their tea almost entirely to his
ship, arguing that, as the captain stood to
lose i.iiK), the repairs to his steamer s en
gincs hail probably put him in a position
to bet almost on a certainty.
Of course the steamer, whose greatest
speed was eight knots an hour, arrived in
Knglaud weeks after the others, and the
captain lost his 500; but instead of having
to lie in China waiting his chance of cargo
