If you saw an astral hand stretch sudden from the thick darkness anu snatch open a blind wouldn't It ex cite your imagination ? And if you felt an icy finger count ing the vertebrae of your spine wouldn't it rustle your nerve? Well, that's what tho Pecaricks now say of the house on Punchbowl from which they are today moving, after having been the main attractions of a few day's visitation by hundreds of cu rious people who wanted to see the chosts alleged to have turned things topsy-turvy on Sunday. ' The Pecaricks declare that they were buncoed by the previous tenants of the old Boyd premises, for that the previous tenants knew very well that the house was haunted and unkindly neglected, to inform the Pecaricks that such was the c;tse. Now tho Pecaricks say that the neighbors are telling of ghostly things that happened in the house before they became occupants about a month ago, They say that one night when their predecessors wero endeavoring to slumber, a hand, ' without ' the usual body attachment, stretched out and wrench open the fastened shutters, and at the same moment all tho windows and doors of the house flew open. On another night, they say, a young ladv's shoes walked out from under her bed and walked around tho honsa, klckinc tho furniture, taking a run down the road and finally returning to their position under the bed. That's what tho Pecaricks say, but a wagon-ioau oi sail snouiu go wuu every statement. One thing Is very definitely statea this morning by both Mr. and Mrs. Pecarick, and that is that Esperanza, tho comely Spanish girl Is not a me dium, nor is she in any way respon sible directly or Indirectly for Sun day's psychic circus. They say all blame must bo attach ed to the house. This doesn't hitch at all with their first statement thav Esperanza was tho spirits' agent. Esperanza's father is In the hospital; her mother Is Just recovering from a sickness and Esperanza, thirteen year's of age, Is the sole suport of the fam ily, says her mother. Now Esperanza Is out of a job be cause people aro saying that she Is a medium, whereas sho is not. Her mo ther Is sore distressed and loudly de clares tho girl should never have been held responsible, and tho mother is probably right. A truly Honolulu reception awaits P.
