Tho prolonged basing of Mr. Bran

Hut now the long injury ls being reop

inasmuch as there is to he further
delay, the senate commltc that is so
closely scrutinizing Mr. Brandeis's
fitnoss for the position might do well
to seek evidence of u sort that has
been Ignored thus fur. Representa
tives of the professional, propertied,
learned and leisurely classes have

sorts of citizens, representing a ler
ger part of thc nation, who might
give Interesting testimony.
Why doesn't the judiciary commit
tee ! minnon some of tho New York
and Boston factory girls whose lot
has been mnde easier through Mr.
Brandeis's efforts? Why doesn't it
summon some of the laboring men in
various sections of the country who
owe shorter hours, better working
conditions und higher efficiency to
Mr. Brandeis's championship? Why
doesn't it summon some of the min
ority stockholders in thc corporations
whoso erou.ed munugement Mr. Bran

who have been represented by Mr.
Brandeis in resisting crushing mon

This particular scribe WUB never
very fond of ghost stories; in fact,
ho never care;, to listen to .them, much
loss to toll them to others. How
ever, one certain ghost story has
bosrr'repeatedly told to him within the
past few days and his curiosity hus
bcon aroused to such an extent that
he has decided to publish it as it bas
boen related to him. Juut who or
what the "ghost" or "spirit" ls, ho
divs noi a tem pt to bay; neither does
hu vouch for tho veracity.- or We ac
curateness of what lu to bo related.
As stated before he baa no special lik
ing for ghost stories, much less seeing,
or hearing tho ghosts themselves. The
following is tho story as lt has been
told to tho Line 'O. Dope man, names
being omitted:. ?.
Down in the lower part ot tho coun
ty between Starr and Iva there lives
a. well known family whose home
is -now. the center of attraction for
miles af iund. Sure the house IB haunt
ed, for people are flocking thore^ ev
ery night hy tho- score, tb hear the
spirit speak and to try and solve the
deep mystery.'
It started Ulla woy. -, For the past
lix months sounds as if soraeon?
knacking on the'wall have been heard.
Fer a Unie lt was'thought these sounds
wc re 'caused by flying squirrels who
had made their dene in the walla.
However^ tearing the coiling from the
wails did not. solve the mystery. One
.Irjtoa^afio loot night, there caine from
tho direction of tho door, a sound of
Vriocklng,and a Uti o girl 14 years of
age. hearing the,noise, end thinking
lt. was soma of tho neigh bora who
had come'over for n friendly chat?' fife*
vited the supposed porson io. ''' The
knocking continued, but no one cam?
lp. Finally the Rtle girl opefaed tho
door, .hut not a soul could bo seen
or heard. Sh o asked who {t was do
log, the -knocking and ? Vole? re-?
pited: i"; "I am from Georgia." .
Investigations did : not lead to tho
location;>Of.<:'?tiy^e.^The little girl
asked the seeming spirit'what it want
ed, and thus a conversation started.
\ThS title girl asked numerous qn?s
tiona, and each time received un In
telligent reply from the spirit. There
were questions dealing with affairs
of the fumily, those dealing with cer
tain members of the family, etc. The
spirit replied to ull of thetiv iu au
intellgent manner. Thc spirit stated
that one member or the family who
was vi- Irini;.there from another state,
hud not better go home, for if he
did. he would bc hilled.
Of course all of tho family became
terribly frightened, and could not
account for the voice? from the empty
space. Other members or the family
tried to converse with lt, but tho
spirit would not pay any attention lo
The story of thc occurrence became
circulated around the neighborhood
uud the next night there were several
of the neighbors present. The spir
it was in one of the rooms on thc next
night and contained, to talk, to the
little girl. It laffin first attracted her
attention by knocking on tba wall.
' The next/night ; lhere was-** a/ill
larger crowd present, and lt hus '-on
linucd this way until now it ls said
several score of people flock to the
house every night. The house has
been thoroughly searched and the
ceiling hus been 'removed, but'nothing
unusual has been found. Tho fum
ily is worried almost to death and
stute that they ''will leave the; house.
The a?>? rit hau ??ld that if they'do,
it will not make any dUTer/mce fpr bc
will go with them.
The above Is the story us it ha's been
told. Various visitors to the city
from Iva and ' iStarr have related it
and suy that hundreds of people go
to the haunted house every night.
They claim that others besides the lit
tle girl can hear the voice, but can
not understand all timi is said. Thor,
are vory much concerned as to what
the .'volc?" la und many ot them ap
pear both worried und extremnly
There was much hilarity, in Ander
son yesterday, aff^/uoon lifter the
results of tho .election became known.
Many of those , who had supported
Mayor Godfrey got in automobiles,
rode around town, yelled, sang and
celebrated in general. The fire bell
waa rung several -times and the peo
ple of the city made sure that there
was a fire somewhere. Last night
Mayor Godfrey'^wsa^ serenaded,, bress
bands, bells, tin ,'r?na, automobile
horns etc., being used with great ef
fect. It seems that oorno of the people
really "celebrated" and kept it up
until a late hour last night. Police
headquarter* reported last night at
ll o'clock that there had not been a
singlo arrest made, during the day.
Judging from indications laBt night,
tho rain has passed for tho present.
Thero was n stiff cool breeze-'.blow
ing and the sky was clear, not a
cloud being seen. .'Early yesterday
afternoon some sections of tho coun
ty wore viBlt9d by refreshing show
ers, none ot them very heavy. It
rained rather heavy at the Gluck mill
and on up as far as the Orr milt, but
only sprinkled in Anderson.

The elder Mrs. Belcher who ha*
been keeping the children at her home

when her son left his wifo and

Gh-Ps Mother Testifies.
Only three witnesses "were called
for the plaintiff,; ^or; thb petitioner.
They-;were the mower.!.her' brother
and : UielrJ mothers-Mrs. Vaughn,

She swore that her husband wanted

resulted in thoir separation. After
he had abandoned her and had taken
