My grandfather gave it to my father, and my father gave lt to me. Anne Holliwell when sbe was eight? een years old was nccuse*d or witc-h crtift- Mark Spooner, a Mg. strong fel? low, wanted to marry ss*******,hut he waa a wicked one*? they seelu TTe had se?cret meetings with Sa tnt) at midnight tn the wood?anel Anne would have uot ti? ing ls do with him. Mort**>vor. she loved Joel llalllrt. son of Henton Hisl 11 rt. who went off with the ICoger Wil? li!) ms pe*ople. Joel was the reverse of BpoOssS**. l?elnK a small, pale looking yoting lunn, hut with a very Intellec? tual countenance. He was not tn fa ve?r with the congregation, however. tioeiiti**e lie opMlf elenle*d thc right of the church to bum ejut a woman's tongue with n redliot iron Indeed, so great was the Indignation against his heretical protest thnt Joel caine near pitying the i>enaIty of hla rustiness arith lils life. Now. I nm not going to vouch for what I intend to tell you. I'll give It ns I got lt from others and their In? terpretation of it. If you choose to take different views concerning lt. I shall have no objection. Anne Holliwell was accused, ns 1 tia ve said, or witchcraft. My grand? father used to say that Mark S|>ooner was nt the bottom of the accusation with a view to getting Anne lnt*> his power, hut this was not current at the time. However this be. Anne was tried uriel sentenced to be burned. When tbs fagots were prepared and Anne was being bound to the stake a t.ell man stepjied out of a wood nearby and advanced to the pnrty He wore a purple doublet, bordere'd with rod. and rod hose, while on his head was n con? ical hut with a pingle feather in lt There was something so singular lu hhs appearance that Ihe |H*ople teirned from Anne Holliwell. the stake and the fagots to look at him. "What do you with the wench"/" ask ?*d the stranger. "We're going to burn her. She's a witch ." "A witch?" The speaker threw back his head anel. displaying white, point? ed teeth, gave a laugh At first lt wns a simple ironical ha. ha! Then lt hnd ttl** ring ot a irmnpet In it. Then came t Pack au echo, tbongil there was no em ] Iiience or cliff to sena lt. "\\ ho tire you?' asked one of the ! pillars of the church who were con ; ducting Hie execution "ion strange I ly resemble Mark Spooner, hut you ' are ind Mark S|*ooner. for Mark ls bul twenty live, while you-you may b? j young or you may be old." "No matter who 1 am. 1 have coins for the wench." ?'Stand off:' crieel several of the mos: pious men present, who hud no minc thut the Lord's will should be Inter fere*d with, but the stranger, drawlnj his sword, stepped up to Anne Holli well anel. cutting the cords, led hei away toward ttie wood. Some sale thut sparks were seen to fly from thi point of the sword, some thnt bis (Sci Budden ly from being epilte hnndsomi became so demoniacal that every mai gave way InstIoctlveiy before bira.

My griinelfather claim* to have got tin* story of what hnppei ed after she disappeared with tt stranger from one of her children. Joel Hallitt on the night before tl expecteel execution, instead of glvli way to his grief, spent the hours e bis knees praytng that the peop might be absolved from tbe supers! lion*, of witchcraft and pcrseeutlo When the hour of the execution cnn be was seized with an Impulse to | and stive Hie girl.
