Ghost Stones. I was born in a oountrj not ill-peo pled with ghosts ; and gboata, as we sll know, from the wrath of Patroelu* downwards, make tbemselvee very use ful to the poet. But here again I have been unlucky. It was my mother's maid, riot I, who beard tbe silks of a spectral lady rustling behind ber late at night in tbe long gallery at borne, and who had not courage enough to turn round and heboid the ghastly visage which probably mirmounted them. Once, too, MO old »bephevd came in from tbe mountain valleys to narrate bow, 00 a mid winter night, as he drove sheep pasot a lonely farm, an old and saga cioaa dog howled sad showed evident signs of terror, creeping tremblingly bark with it* yoaag comrade to bis feet, tiefore his master's duller eye discerned, as it soon did. with awe, a white woman with a child in ber arms, doomed, as she told him, for her guilt to vauder restlessly aloug the wilds, and suffered one night every year to appear and tell ber story. . But unluckily then I was too small a child to be allowed to listen to his thrilling narration, which surprised my ; father very much, for tbe nan was so i ber and bad no motive for its invention. I passed the boose near which this strange meeting took plice, left unten anted aud desolate for twenty years or so in conietjuence, and I could not help en vying my father's good fortune, who at least bad seen the man who saw the ghost. I have always remained one re move further oft—a decided disadvan tage. That was my position when, on the lovely lake of Hawcswater, a worthy friend of mine told me how a man be knew, once fishing at midnight, under beautiful Wallercrag (where, it is well I known, sleeps the imprisoned spirit of j l the Viscount Lonsdale of George tbe ! Second's time), heard a crashing sound ; as if tbe whole mountain were Calling I < dowu on him, and fled, smashing his fishing-line iu the fall, and thenceforth i j foreswearing fishing rather than run the ris« of meeting tbe grim ghost, which he thought was then breaking its bouuds. Those bounds were »et to it with dif- j Acuity by a conclave of the clerw nf the period, one of whom had pursued it up the river to the lake whence it hows, kuocking hii shins sadly against the stones in its rocky bed, but still tnanfulty holding fast to the Book of Common Prayer, and reading from it the passages which act as exorcisms. When at last the spirit, so compelled, showed symptoms of resting beneath Wallercrag. the brave parson, jointly with several of his reverend brethren, iat°pPA4l , oA n tfui»C - 9l)lt in, »iA»l4 hul/ had laiu him For ever and ever and aye. But a voice from the mouutain-hollow mockingly echoed back, time after time, tiie spirit's ultimatum: No, for a year and a day. And how far tbe assembled priests succeeded in making him desist from his counter-proposition remains to this day a little uncertain. At least my llaweswater friend knew a man (you see I never get any nearer to ghosts than that),*wbo bad many a time heard a carriage coming down tbe steep banh ou which Lowther Castle rises above the river of the same name, and held open tbe gate for it at the bottom, as in duty bound. But he knew well that tbe carriage held an occupant who bad no longer any business with this world: and as he described tbe matter, "some times his coachman and bis horsee had their beads on ,lnit oftener they had not " — HUickttood?s M tgazint. Diseases of Our Own Causing. On an average, one-balf of the num ber of our patients treated by a hospi tal-surgeon suffer from diseases due primarily to a want of kno • ledge of the laws of health and cleanliness. Ist. Tbe ignoraace of bygenic laws, wbicb atTect so disastrously tbe health of the rich as well as the poor, exists chiefly in regard to dress, ablution and venti lation. This starement may, at first, appear startling, but an enumeration of tbe diseases that can be constantly traced to tbe above causes will show upon how sound a basis tbe statement rests Tbe following are examples: Varicose ulcers from dress, chest-dis i eases and fevers from imperfect venti lation Tbe vast number of uloerated legs treated in out-patient department of hospitals, in work-bouse infirmaries and in private practios, arise from van cose veins. Now. a varicase ulcer ii called a distended coodition of veins oi the leg. which base to sustaia the pres-; sure of the blood caused by gravitation. The most frequent and flagrant cause of obstruction is in the ordinary elastic garter Children thonld never wear them at all. as the stockings can be per fectly well kept up by an attachment of an elastic band strapped to the waist band. If garters are worn, it is im portant to kuow how to apply them with the least risk of harm; at the bend of the kae« the superficial veins ' of the leg unite, and go dimply into the under (art of the thigh beneath the hsm-string tendons. Thus a ligature ' below tb« knee obstructs all tha super -1 final seins, but. if the oonstmctioo is | at»ove, the ham-string tendons keep the pressure off the veins which rat urns the Mood tr»xn the legs: unfortunately. ' m«*t people id ignorance oi iha above f .cts. apply the garter below the knee.
