The Contents of a Paper Found on tbe Per
son of an Insane Snielde.
Here is a story of the snpernatural. It
happened . more than 100 years ago, so
that you may hope that it is not true.
Yet in those days the invention of news
was not yet known, and the paper which
contains this story wrb a sober and bon
est journal. One of the patients in a
madhouse a parish madhouse, I think
that of Launc.st on escaped. That was
no new thing. They all wanted to es
cape. As the woman, although very
mad indeed, was quite barmless, they
went about their rearch in a leisurely
fashion. At last they found her drowned
in a shallow dicch and carried her back
to the madhouse.
On preparing the unhappy woman for
the grave they found in her corset then
called her stays something that rustled.
They cut tho thing open and discovered
a small parcel rolled up tight in some
waterproof ttxtSZ whatever was then in
vented. Th' parcel was a document
written on parchment. It was written
very sniall and n-is-spcllcd, but this was
how it ran:
"The man fame nlong after dark. lie
stopped at .ur door and said he was
a strauger. ati 1 would my aunt take him
in for the ni. lie seemed a sailor
and said ho va.-. respeetablo and showed
money. "Elizabeth, said, aunt, 'he can
have your roi v.u, and yon shall sleep with
me.' There were two bedrooms in the
cottage, up a ladder, both garrets. Dur
ing the evening he sent me out for
drink, and he had a lot and was drunk,
but he got up the ladder safe and so to
bed. In the lii'.it I heard aunt get out
of bed. There was a moon shining in
the skylight window.
"She took something and went into
the man's room. Then I was frightened
and sat up in bed. and I beard a sound
as of a blow and nothing more. Present
ly aunt came back, and in the moonlight
she saw me s-itting up in bed. 'Get up,'
she said; 'go down stairs and get, if you
can, a light.' So I did and brought the
rushlight up the ladder. Aunt had the
Bible in her hand. 'Swear, she said,
'that you will never tell any one what
has been done.' So I swore, trembling,
and wished I might go suddenly mad if
I told. 'Theu.' says she, "I've killed the
lodger. His pockets were full of guineas,
and I'm a ia;xle woman. But you must
"So she made me help to drag the body
down into the room below and out in the
garden, where we dug a hole under the
cabbages and laid it as deep as we could.
Then we covered all up and went back
to the house and waited till daybreak.
As soon as it was light we washed up the
place, and nobody ever found out. One
night, when I was a woman grown, the
dead man came to my bedside and said,
'Tell the story.' and I said, 'I cannot, be
cause I swor.' He said: 'If you tell, you
have sworn to go mad. If you do not
tell, I will haunt yon till you do go mad.'
"So, aa I am liound to go mad either
way, I have written the story down and
sewn it up. When I am dead, somebody
will find it and will dig up the poor man
and bury him in a churchyard. Tho
house is situated"
Thus the narrative. And they dug up
the garden in the place indicated and
found tho dead body in what had been
sailor's clothes. Walter Besant in Lon

Plays For Young Girls.
Many wise mothers think that the
theater should be reserved for adult life.
They regard it as a stimulant and to bo
unnecessary for the growing mind. It
may be compared to those drugs which
relieve headache by affecting the heart.
Still the mother who would make of
her girl "a woman holy and wise" will
not exclude the theater. But outside 6t
some special representations of Shake
speare she will select only simple plays,
such as "Rip Van Winkle," "Sweet Lav
ender," wholesome comedy where the
deep passions of life are not exhibited,
where the sinful follies of youth are not
presented for sympathy and for commis
eration. There is one other class of plays which
she may some time allow for the same
reason that she cheerfully provides ro
mance in books, and that is the real, old
fashioned melodrama iu which the hero
is triumphant, the villain is brought to
justice and all comes out right in the
end. Such a treat is like the "frolics"
at surprise parties and straw rides, which
were enjoyable because of their rarity.

. Mourning Paper.
Mourning paper is a satire in itself. It
wears tho deepest jiossible black margin
for the first six months, say. Then it
grows a little narrower. Is that a 6ign
that you are not mourning so much as
you were during the first half year?
Next year it is narrower still. The grief
is greatly mitigated. The third year it
is a mere streak. Your 6orrow does not
amount to much now I The next year
the black border has entirely disap
peared. Does that mean that you have
forgotten your bereavement? That would
be the logical interpretation, and yet in
the case of how many whose stationery
has gone through this diminishing per
spective to the vanishing point the sor
row has been even more bitter after
years perhaps than it was at first. Bos
Starboard and Larboard.
The ItaUans derived "starboard" from
questa borda, "this side," and ""larboard"
from qnella borda, which means "that
side." Abbreviated these two phrases
appear as sta borda and la borda, Their
close resemblance caused so many mis
takes that the admiralty ordered the
"larboard" to be discontinued and "port"
substituted. "Port" for "larboard" is
said to be firs used in Arthur Pitt's
"Voyages" in 1580. Philadelphia Press.

left to tell the tale. His coonship then
dined upon a handsome Brahma cock in
the rear of tho establishment and after
ward proccedod to deprive a beautiful
tropical song bird of his plamage.
He next made an attack on a number
of goldfish, and when his appetite was
satisfied there wasn't a single representa
tive of the piscatorial tribe left in the
aquarium. Several other dejjredations
were committed, and his coonship was
making preparations to exterminate ev
ery valuable bird in the establishment
when two festive copjiers crawled over
the transom aud put an end to hisctjlcula
tions. He was carried back to Rueger's,
but soon effected his eso-apo and made it
lively for the squirrels in the Capitol
square. A small regiment of small boys
were in pursuit of the animal, which
with an all important air mounted the
Washington monument and soon sat
complacently on the top of George's head,
eying his pursuers with an expression of
mingled defiance and curiosity. He was
finally captured. Richmond Times.

"Oh. that's no.!.-.:! :." h..i,l the clerk as
he gathered pp the abandoned umbrella;
"we find them here every day."
It was in a railroad oHk-e. where peo
ple came aad went every few minutes.
And it was railing too.
"Now, you'd think," he continued to
an amused gentleman, "that anybody
who had sense enough to come in when
it rains would have enough left to take
their umbrella with them if they didn't
want to go in, wouldn't you? But they
haven't. There may be reason for a chap
going away and leaving his cane on the
counter, but I cant exactly place those
who deliberately go out into the rain
amfl leave a silk umbrella behind them.
Yes, they come back sometimes some
times they dont. There must be some
thing in the fact of buying railroad tick

eling. Buying a railroad ticket is an
event to them. They show that by the
questions they ask. They have their
minds gorged with the important details
of the proposed journey, the time the
train is to start, the time it gets there,
the connections, the checking of baggage
and all that sort of thing, and they
haven't room for umbrellas and canes
and packages. It's the same on the cars."
