We had been in Cape Town four days
completing our loading for Liverpool after
having been up the African coast as far as
Zanzibar and return when an Irishwoman I suggested that the forward hatch
came aboard and asked for a passage home.
Our craft was the English bark Fanny
Lee, carrying a crew of fourteen men, and
though we might have tried to make a
woman comfortable had we picked her off
a wreck in midocean the barque carried
no passengers and had no accommodations
for them. The woman gave her name as
Molly Mc Davis. She was a single woman,
twenty-four years old, and had made the
from the na-n he began to boast of how he
had dissolved the mystery and put Jack's
superstitions to flight. The second mate
and I knew altogether better, however.
The queer noises still continued, and the
men had become so rattled that the watch
below smoked their pipes and kept very
wide awake. The discipline of the ship
was being upset by a mystery, and I am
free to confess Unit it was a mystery which
also bothered me. On two other occasions
I had entered the fo'castle and plainly
heard the uncanny sounds, but was not
able to locate them to my satisfaction. I
was pretty sure, however, thAt they came
from the forehold, and one afternoon I
told the whole story to the captain and
time to turn around, I believe the captain
put in as much as all the rest of us, though
he waved her ashore and called after her
that he'd have the law on her if she
out of Liverpool inside of an hour.
SOME CAMPAIGN SONQ3.
I moved and an investigation made. He
flew mad at once, and began berating me
j for an old woman and a graveyard sailor,
I and then he went forward among the men
and told them he'd run the bark ashore
I and be hanged to her before he'd pull off a
': batch cover. He thought that settled it,
oris ne was mistaken.

The tone ot Whnelaw Reid's some
what belated letter of acceptance is de
cid d!j pleasing to democrata. It shows
in the first place that the republican
ruansttrs thought it necesst.rj to put be
fore the public a specisl plea in behalf of
the r publican policy on the tar ff and
kicdred subjects, &nd it a3m;ts that the
control of the sei-ste and the house will
goto the democrats with the election of
Clt vela: d and Sttvenson. This admis
sion was, of course, icsertcd to scare out
the full republican vote, but it cnuot
fail to have an excellent tffect on the
democrats, by pointing out the fact thai
for the first titce in many 3 ears they haye
an opportunity to gain possession of the
entire covercment, a prize well worth

Tcuog man, before you ca9t your bal
lot for a roan to represent you in con
gress, stop and rt fleet a moment. Look
at the career of eat h candidate present d
by the two parties. The republicans
have nominated Col. B. F Mirsb, a
Warsaw cit.zi-n of whom we entertaiD
the highest respect personally, but as we
believe -he principles he advocate will
not promote the best interests of the
wb le people, we must, in justice to
ourselves and the duty we owe our coun
try, oppose for election to congress Mr.
Marsh has re; resented this district Three
successive terms in the halls of congress;
has been railroad and warehouse cm
missioner. and Is no tor . the fifth
time running for eouurees.
In return for all this we ask
what has be dene for the Eleventh dis
trict? What has be done forlilino?
What has he done for our great and fa
orably known national high
way the Mississippi river? Col
Marsh has certainly hid fflces enough,
emoluments enough and glory enough.
Be has wealth, broad acres, an elegant
home, an estimable wife, worthy sons
and fair daughters. What more could
mortal man wish?
The democratic party on the other
band has placed in nomination a your g
man lo a Warsaw cit'zen of whom
Warsaw is justly proud Truman PUniz.
a man of ability, brains and brawn He
is ready and anxious to meet Col. Marsh
at any time and place the colonel may

a self made man. honest, courageous, and
is now strurgiicg hard to carve out a
competence for himself and little family.
Who is not in favor of giying such a man

the charge. He statids squarely on the
democratic platform and advocutes a

did not propose to. She was what miirht
before him, and I noticed that none of

an hour after I had turned iu gave the
captain the greatest surprise of his life.

the quarter when he was suddenly seized.

past 3 o'clock the captain awoke aud went
on deck, and when the whole affair became
plain to him he nearly fell down in a fit.
Our position was olf Sw Paul De Loando,
fairly in the pathway of tra.Tic, but yet we
realized that we u.ight knock alxmt for a

but we couldn't take her in any position.
She was disappointed, but she had no tear

during the morning watch to make a com

penter himself, who declared that for the
past two nights the watches below had
been disturled by strange noises and could
not sleep. The bark had the old fashioned
fo'castle instead of the deck house, and
the noises had seemed tocome from behind
the bulkhead dividing the fo'castle from
the hold. While any sailing craft carry

strange, queer noises, caused by friction
and straining, there is always at least one

the matter out of mind
On the night of that day I came on watch
at midnight. I found my men already on
deck, and the second mate's watch, just re
lieved, hung aliout the scuttle instead of
turning in. Demanding to know the rea
son of this singular action, I was told tl it
the queer noises before referred to had
been heard again and again
were as good a.s upset over them. Had the
"old man" been on deck he would have .
seized a In-laying pin end driven the watch :
below and cracked three or four heads. He
had no path nee with sailors' weaknesses. I '
was tempted to give them a bit of my mind, !
but all were so serious and earnest, that it
seemed only reasonable to investigate. I :
went into the fo'castle anil .spent fifteen '
minutes listening for sounds. The bark
had all plain sail on her and was heeled to '
port, and for the first ten minutes I heard '
only the sounds of boxes and bales nib-
bing together. Then, of a sudden, I heard ;
a voice singing. It was a faint, far away
voice, and I hail to listen closely, but it
certainly was a human voice. It was im- .
possible to locate it. It seemed to come !
from aliove as much as in any other direc
tion, and I went on deck thinking some of
the hands might be playing a joke. !
"It will le anything but a joke for the
man who's playing this if I can catch him
at it!"' I said as I gained the deck and
founil lioth watches grouped aroiind the
hatch and waiting for me.
"Mr. Merwin, did you hear aight down '
below?" asked the carpenti r, speaking for
"Xot down there, but I heard some one
singing up here."
"N'o, sir! I pledge you my word and that
of every man here that not a man of us.
littered a whisper. It wus singing you
beard, sir?" j
"And that's what the men complain of, '
sir singing most of the time, but now and
then something like praying and calling
"Well, singing and praying won't hurt
any of you, even if it's that. It's in the
Mfatti however. Wva riit three r.r fnir ,
old pianos aboard going to' England to be
fixed up, and it's the boxes rubbing to
gether which makes the singing sound.
It's tree music and you ought to be glad
of it. Go below the watch anil let's hear
no more of this."
The men hung back for a moment and
then followed one another down into their
sleeping quarters. I was honcxt in what I
had said. As soon as I remembered the
pianos I was sure that the singing noise
came from them. It no doubt looked rea
sonable to the sailors, as nothing more
was heard from them that night. I was
011 at 4 ana on again at 8 next morning.
We had just got her off on her course,
and the old man himself was at the wheel
and slill swearing, when a strange figure
emerged fro;n the fo'castle and came left
as far as the mainmast. It was the figure
of a woman, but her face was so white ami
procure, in- eye so inigr nin gi.ossv, ana
and the crew ' she rseled about in such a manner that I,
j who was nearest her. was ten seconds in
. making sure she was even a human being.
. The minute I caught sight, of her parched
j lips I run to the scuttle butt and got her a
1 panakiu of water. It was only a drop to
! her, and she had swallowed fully two qnnrls
: before I choked her oil. Then I signal. -d
' the steward, who was now acting as cook,
' and he brought her a big hunk of meat
and a roupio of biscuit. She ate like a
; wolf, and it was a good half hour licfore
I she spoke n word. Then it was to say:
j "Ah! me bye, but Molly McDavis begins
; to feel like her old self once more!"
It was tiie Irishwoman we had refused
to take aboard at Cape Town, and after
thirst and henger had been satisfied she
told us her story. The last time she came
aboardthen.cn were at supper and the
cargo nearly stowed. She had her plans
all made, and she slipped down the after
hatch without being seen. She made her
way over the cargo to the fo'castie bu'.k
hend, and there took up quarters among
the bales of dried cowskins we had stored
there. She had brought with her four
quarts of water and two loaves of bread,
intending to 1 t her presence Ik known be
fore she suffered from hunger and thirst.
She was dreadful sick when we got to sea
and her groans and 1 rayers and laments
were heard in the fo'casi le. When she got
better she sang to keep herself company.
She made the bread and water last her a
week. Then she tried to attract attention
by rapping on the bulkhead, but the
frightened sailors paid no attention. She
hail a pocketknife with her, and on the af
ternoon of the night they abandoned the
ship she cut the bands of four bales of
skins and moved them away, and t hen at
tacked the bulkhead. She was all night
cutting through the stout planks, and
when she appeared on deck she had been
forty hours without food or water.
I expected the captain would give the
stowaway woman a blessing. " After she
had finished her story he did start in to,
but she couI1 utter five words to his one
and she soon tired him out. He sent her
to the galley to act as cook, and I don't
think he was as much put out as he pre
tended to be. Thus far, as you have seen,
three very curious circumstances had oc
curred ; lie discovery of a spook in the
fo'castle, the plight of the crew and the
appearance of Miss McDavis There was
to be a fourt h curious circumstance. On

In the cabin, the men were all at work on
jobs and I was pacing the quarter and
keeping an eye on a bit of sail just showing
to windward of as when a shout of terror
rang through the ship.
A hand named Thomas Burns had been
into the fore peak after something wanted
on deck, and it was he who called out as
he tumbled up and seemed for a moment
to contemplate going overboard. The yell
brought the captain on deck, and then the
story of the strange noise- came out. He
was furious. Burns decle id that a human
voice had called to him while he was be
low, and the rest of the crtw stood by him
vith regard to the singing and praying,
but the "old man" was mad enough to kill
some one. xle drove them forward and
and far into night. We were under very
short sail, but the bark swarmed along
; at a good rate of speed. The captain
; meant to keep our course and speak the
' first sail we met and ask for two or three
: men and touch at Sierre Leone. At sun
' rise of the third day I went aloft to sweep
i the sea, and the very first object to catch
my eye was our longboat. She was to the
eastwani and windward of us and bearing
' down across our course. She wasn't over
