Devon People Believe Sight of Spanish
Flag on British Ship Angered
Anyone who knows the villages of
the west of' England will be aware
that they are a fertile soil for nil man
ner of superstitious beliefs. And the
process of. creating new legends has
evidently not yet come to an end, if
we may accept a statement made at a
recent women's institute meeting at
Exeter, at whiclh various speakers re
counted the traditions of their respect
ivo localities. A few years ago the
battle ship .lontague was wrecked on
Lundy Island as she was entering the
Bristol channel in a fog. Tpe people
of the neigiiorhood, we are told, have
no doubt that she was lured to her
doom by the spirit of Sir Francis
Drake. She happened to be flying the
Spanish lag in honor of the marriage
of King Alphonso and Princess Ena.
This the proud ghost of Dqvon's great
seaman could not brook, and he made
her pay the penalty by running her
upon the rocks.-Manchester Guardian.
