The Ghost That He Saw m
ti
BY JOHIN SwIIN'ON.
As I have never been a reader of II
ghost stories, I cannot say whether any 0
experience like ithat of which I am )
about to t ell has ever fallen to the lot p
of any other mortal. n1
Shortly before the Anerican Civil 1I
War broke out, forty yea s ago, I was
living im the South, at the picturesquie ft
calpital (f tihe "Palmetto State."' What sr
kind of a place the city cf Columbia w
may now be I. cannot say, for tihe old 01
city of the name that I Once knew was cl
burned during the period of hostilities.
lut, when I lived there, the Carolini- al
ians always extolled their capital and it
were proud of its fame as the most
beautiful city in the South. e]
I boarded at tihe Mansion House, a te
large and rather stately domiie near
the head of Main street, not far from cli
the broad avenauc on which stood the ti
residences of the plantation aristo- w
eracy, who were the owners of herds I
of negro slaves. It was a typical b(
Southern domicile of the kiud that bi
used to be raised by the planterg a '
Iiundred years ago. I n front of it, and T1
m both of its sides, grew stately old TI
treos, which embowered and shadedl it; TI
die pillars at itsentrance were festoon- hi
.!d with evergreens; the balcony was
like a flower garden. Firom my win- ell
:low I saw the pailmettos and magnolias <k
vyhich grew in the court; I saw also a p.
g tree, the ripe green fruit of which br
was a daiity that I sometimes plucked th
it sum ise, ere yet George, a watchful L.h
,oung slave of the house, had got out sp
f his cabin, and while yet his owner T]
was dreaming. It
The master of the Maansion House
ivas a grim old 61 Colonel "1 of Irish th
,irt I, who had formei ly served in the ni
oreign wars of the British army, and fo
wvhom, after these n:uny years, I re
nember only as a choleric veteran at m
mce iron handed toward the slaves of ou
'he estal.lishmnent and inl(uigenit to- th
vard tile members of his family. ml
Thera was a social commotion in the ro
:oloneWs household one autumn day.
Word had been unexpectedly received ui:
hat, some friends of the family were ve
-oming u) from their plintiation oi ca
Me of the Sea Islands, where the long- lo
itaple 1ottot grows, to spend a week ma
vith the Colonel's people at Columbia; to
md the Ithought had suddenly entered an
the head of the Colonel's wife that sa
.here was not room to spare for all of
.hem at that time in the Mansion .t
Iouse.
There was something like a domnestic it
)anic, and it camue .Adnly, without th
varning; for the visitors from the
moast were to arrive by tihe evening ci
rain. They had to be made welcome 8b
vhatever happened. No apology for as
ack of accomnodatioiis was to be <k
hought of. For ' Southern hospita- a
ity "1 in the ante-bellum days was al- pi
vays ready for any emergency; it sir
nonted every circumstance. di
One of the Colonel's daughters, who b
weemned to be in much distress, sent lx
vord to me that there was something
)f an unpleasant kind which 1, as at
riend of the family ought to know. w]
' We are in a state of perplexity," she wi
aid. She then told ie of the situa- o
.ion in which the household was placed, i
md how the embarrassment had arisen. hi
I1er father had talked of going quietly al
Lo a hotel for a week, but the visitors
wvouldl surely hear of it, and be uneasy. It
lie had alsoi spoken of staying for some
nights in an 01(d haunted house, long
:lesertedh, which stood beyondi a chimp .)
>f woods within sight; but hie, tho an"
>)ld sohlier, was v'ery nervous, and got al
o alarmed lest lhe might see the white 5
host always there at, midnight, that he
Viehiled to the remonst rances of his i
wife. All the other notions that came
.nto his headl had to bec abandloned for
me reason or another. The visitors stI
'nust not know that the Colonel's fami
y had h'ecni put to any trouble on (heir p(
iccount.
As I had previously heard of the
haunted house, tho 1 had never seen sh
Lt., 1 toldi the Colonel's (laughter that I Lti
myself would like to offer relief b~y iti
taiying there for ai few nights, as I was
not afraid of ghosts, and (lid not be- to
lieve mi theni. wi
My offer was promipt ly and1( gladlly hb
acceptedl by the Colonel, and my ca
rluarters in his mansion were madIe wVI
ready for the visitors ini time for their Lih
reception that evening. T1hie perplexi- wi
Ly was end~ed.
In the afternoon of the (lay of per-- Lih
plexity the Colonel told Black (keorge to
to carry a cot, a small table, a chair,
aiid a candlle to the hauntedl house, for ca
mny use. As the ghost was never seen m
Lhere in da~ylighit,, t.he slave was not se
afraid. iim
About ten o'clock that night I left 0W
the manisicnl andl set oilf in thbe direc- Lii
tion which George pointedi out., saying hii
''Bight up thar,' Massa,"' as lhe giggled ba
in the manner of his wooly-headed LI:
race.
I tooik with me a lantern, a pistol, si
and a novel. So, with a stout heart, a w
1irm tread1, andmi a disdainful air, I made TI
miy way ailontg a timne-worn p~athi, im
thiroiigh the clump of woods, beyomd I
which 1 nIow saw a lighted candle ini 5<
the abandoned house, which was said
to he haunted. i
I was a rickety 01(1 two story wooden b
rookery whichi, a I haid learned, was b)
once the home of a slave-trade~r, but g
which hiad not beeni ocupied for near- ni
ly a hundredi years, or since the time
of the mysterious and dlreadlful murder I
of i:.a owner's wife, the ghost of whom,
so everybody said, aliways appearedl f
there at the house of midnmight, robed e
in white. There were plenty of stories I
10o(l by darkies who hiad been scaired l
by the aipparitioni while hailing in the
nreck of woods and~ hiad heard the wail
ing or th~e ghost. Some of tlie poo'
white folks, too, from the sandi~ hills ,j
had anoni it, sure, while dIrivilg Lheiar
agons near the house at, niglit, wilen,
ie clock i the church steceple struck
velve.
Hardly any man, tho ie were vet
Lrcer than the old Colonel, would,
men for thle offer of a well-stocked
antation, have stayed where I pro
ISed to stay that Ilight; and plriiaps

Every time two g fls kiss eaci'othe
in) public they unag bi the men are 0e
vious.
.A man would doubtdas be just as Ii.
rital as a setting lien were he placed
iml a similar position.
Pewer actors would be out of work If
there were not go many people on the
stage who are not actors.
An optimist says that pessinfIt' ari
' eason is a nan's guard. and noral
priiiciple is his safeguard.
If you are not ul) and doing you
soon be (town and done.
Women are curious about every
Ihing; ml1en1 are curious only about wo
men.
Some men get into oice with very
little opposition and get out with none

The in(lividull who gets into the

If a man is ia chronic grumbler it al

Tuii . mJoy o CiRis'rm4s.-If the
birlth of the Son of God into pur
world wts an event of such extraordi
niary interest to the inhabita.ints of
heaveni that an angelic inessenger was
dispatchel.d to anlouice it to the shep
herds who were watching theiri flocks
by night on tihe hillsides near Bbtbl
heimi, and if " suddenly there was with
the aigel a multitude of the heavenly
host" saying: "4 Glory to God in tile
hiwhest. anI on carth peace and good
wil towat (I men," siurely thie recurring
anniveramy of that event-should 'be i?
an occasion of grateful rejoicing on
our earth. Mankind h4ve a more
iiiediate and vital interest in
thaL advent than tile angels. It is tihe
necessary precursor ti thqt other
event-the death on the cross-around
which gather all the hopes of our fal
lell hulmianity. It was a pirt of the
econoimy of grace that Christ should be
horn of a woman, born under the
law, to redeem Lihem that were - uiler
the law," that he should be born in
" the likeneas of sinful flesh," that in
the siime flesh Ile might " put
away sitti by tile sacriflee of himfself."
Phe birth of our Lord Jesus Christ is
that, great epoch in the world's history
from which all that went before pre.
ligure and point out. It Is the world's
iecond birth, frbm which its first, crea
tion borrows al' its significance.
