GHOSTS ROAM ABOUT GLOOMY DOWNTOWN HOUSE Neighbors of Old Residence at -Tenth and Bainbridge Streets Tell of Strange Noises and Mysterious Figures At Tenth and Bainbridge streets, en the southwest corner, stands a large brick house, four steriei high. One only casually acquainted with this neighborhood could hardly pass without remarking nnd remembering It, although there seems nt first glance little that in different from hundreds et ether down town houses. ' Tt Is nn old house, as houses go in Philadelphia, but net se old by from fifty te seventy years ns many ether houses thereabouts. Ner is It In nny sense picturesque. Despite a certain desperate ernntencss nnd despite the wnrm color of the neighborhood, new a foreign quarter, it Is dull, bleak and ugly. Except for two intervals the house has been untcnantcdfer upward of fifty years. This house is said te be haunted. Tin; legend has persisted throughout three generations in a rapidly changln. lo cality. At night It Is given n' wide berth by the credulous and even the skcpticnl are sometimes persunded te a swifter pace when they cress the pave ment outside. The sterfes that connect the house with the supernatural arc ninny, and some of them doubtless hnve grown with the telling. Discarding what is putcnt ly apocryphal, the legends fit together as fellows : Built Century Age The house was built about a hundred years age by n wealthy family of Irish origin. A'fter a business panic one of this family was inspired te draw his money from the bank nnd te hide it In the ccllnf'. It seems that he took none nf his relatives or friends Inte his con fidence and after his death there was i fruitless search for the hiding plnce of Jiis money. It wns about this time, ncceriung ia ncigiiDiiriioeu irniuiieus, that the first of a long scries of strange circumstances concerning the house were noticed. One by one the members of the fam ily died and there was left only one of them a daughter of the old Irish man who burled his money In the cellar. She Inherited the house. Little of this woman's personality Is known' except 'that she wns devout and thnt the desire of her life wns te become a rellgeusc. Fer n reason known only te herself nnd the Church author ities this was denied and thereafter she made a convent of her house. Frem thnt day she was never seen te leave It, nnd neighbors pretended te have discovered thnt she had shut herself up ln a single room nnd spent most of her time before n shrine. At any rate, previsions and whatever was needed te meet the scant needs of this recluse were brought by n pair of close-mouthed West Indian Negroes, who were her servants. Thus she lived for some say thirty and some fifty years. One day a h parse drew up at the curb and the neighbors understood that the old woman was dead. In the meantime the' stories concern ing the house had multiplied. v There is a courtyard some forty square feet In size beside the house, nnd trespass ing children playing there had been frightened by noises, mysterious lights and faces that they said peered from the side windows of the house. After a tluve this place became se fearful te the children that even the boldest would net play there. Dogs and cats, it was uiid, would walk around the pavement rather than across It and horses driven along Tenth street sometimes shied us they came opposite the gate. It is said that no one has ever been able te drive a horse irjte the courtyard. Told of Steps en Stairs After the death of the old recluse, Workmen nnd ethers having business lu the house came out declaring that they would never return te the place nunc nunc cemtmnied. What thev had te tell con cerned invisible, footsteps climbing en the deg had net followed. One went up the steps nnd tried te drag the deg down. This proved Impossible,' nnd the animal was left whining en the landing. Meantime one of the pair had made a discovery, lie was rubbing his finger en one of the walls. "Put out your light," he whispered. Fer a moment they were In utter dark ness. Then both ejaculated, "Loek!" Glowing Lines en Wall Slowly there had appeared en the wall a glowing line twisted into the shape of something like the figure 4. One of the men stepped in front of this glowing sign, thinking it might be the reflection of light that had crept in from the outside.' The figure remained. Then he closed his hand ever the place en the wall. There wn no light en his hand, bt when he removed It the full line of the figure returned. When the light wns flashed the figure vanished. When the light was put out It came back slowly. This occurred nt a half-hour after midnight. The ether man, thinking the explana tion, of this phenomenon wjjs some phosphorescent quality In the.surfacc of the wall, dug Inte It with his knife. But he could net efface the figure. They tried then te guess what significance this apparition Or hallucination might have or hew possibly it might prove nn Judex te burled treasure. In tills they failed. They watched the' figure for some time and then continued the explora tion of the sub-cellar. They found .nothing else te stnrtle them except the carcass of a yellow cat half buried in the inud. After putting out their lights again for n moment sp that they might have another leek nt the figure en the wall they went upstairs. After a little mere exploration they settled down in dusty chairs In the front room of the first fleer. Thty dozed awhile but they be came tee cold and picked their way back te the kitchen of the caretaker. They .remained for a half hour beside the stove and then returned te the house. Fer three hours longer they remained, returning nt intervals te the caretaker's kitchen. And Then It Disappeared They looked and listened ln vain for furthvr manifestations. Once they re sorted te nn attempt at table levltutlen se that they might assure any unde cided spirit of a sympathetic welcome. They failed te move the tabic or te nreuse any knocking. At 3 o'clock they ngrced te return te the sub-cellar for another leek nt the sign upon the wall. They had debuted In the meantime several possible Interpretations but without reaching any satisfactory con clusions. As before "Bessy," the deg, came quite willingly te the trnpdoer, but refused te be drngged down the steps. However, the phenomenon wns gene, nnd nothing remained te convince the watchers that they had net dreampt it except the murks In the wait one of them hnd dug with his knife. They waited awhile hoping it would reappear, but it did net. Then they decided the dampness was unbearable, returned the deg te the house of the caretaker, locked the doers and left.
