LACKS TRUTH ONLY.
COLD FACTS DESTROY AN ENTER-
TAINING GHOST STORY.
Remlnleceucea or Lord Lytton Which Are
More Valuable In Relation Than in
Truthfulness —An Alleged Haunted
Room Which JDId Mot Exist.
\ Romantic Lord Lytton was, but not
inperstitious. His death, however, has
(revived the story of the yellow boy's
room, the ghost chamber said to exist at
jKnebworth house, the beautiful ances
!tral home of the Lyttons for more than
:«00 years. At Mr. W. P. Friths door
must the charge be laid of having put
the interesting tale in circulation, for we
find it first in his engaging volume of
"Reminiscences." After relating West
jwood's experiences with tho weird wom
an of the Maison Blob, the painter sup
plements the story by another anecdote
of more tragical significance.
! "At Knebworth," he says, "the seat
of Lord Lytton, there is a bedchamber
called the yeilow boy's room." He then
proceeds to relate that during a visit to
Knebworth, Lord Castlereagh, while the
guest of the grandfather of the late
British embassador to Paris, was as
signed without a word of warning to the
mysterious and haunted room. Feeling
Very tired he soon dropped into sleep,
"but his uneasy slumbers were troubled
and it was not long before he awoke.
(What it was which startled him his lord
ship never knew, but the sight which
met his eyes as he gazed at the still burn
ling fire in his room was startling enough.
The figure of a boy, with long, yellowish
hair streaming'down, sat in front of the
fireplace with his back toward the Irish
nobleman. As the latter looked, the lad
arose, turned toward him, and drawing
hack the curtain at the bottom of the
bed with one hand, with the other he
drew his fingers two or three times across
his throat. Of course the impression
produced on Castlereagh was decidedly
disturbing. Bulwer insisted that he
must have been dreaming, but his lord
ship declared with emphasis that he saw
the figure as distinctly as he saw his host
at that moment, and that, far from being
asleep, he was wide awake.
A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE.
j Mr. Frith then adds that Mr. Bulwer
did not tell Lord Castlereagh—Byron's
"carotid cutting Castlereagh"—that the
yellow boy always appeared to any one
who was destined to die a violent death
and always indicated the manner of it
to his victim.
A more amusing and less unpleasant
incident is told of the same chamber at
Knebworth by onr artist author, the
subject being a timid, nervous brother
painter who spent a night at the poet's
lovely and stately retreat in Hertford
shire. The father of the author of "Lu
cile," Mr. Frith says, confided the de
tails of the Castlereagh story to his
guest on allotting the yellow boy's room
to him, remarking on bidding him good
night, "Yon will not be frightened, will
you?' "No—o—o," said the painter, with
an ashy face. "Well, it is getting late;
what do yon say to retiring? Yes, that
is your candle. Too warm for a fire in
your room. You don't mind? Good
night" "The rest of the story shall be
told," says Frith, "in my old friend's
■words as nearly as I can remember them.
J bad seen," be went on, "the infernal
room before dinner, and I thought it
looked a ghostly sort of place, and when
1 reached it that night what would I not
have given to be back in my own room
at homel I looked under the bed, up the
great, wide chimney, and had a shock
from the sight of my own face in the
looking glass. No ghost could be whiter
than 1 waa. 1 don't believe in ghosts,
you know, but still it was really too bad
of Lytton to tell me such things just as
I was going to bed, and then to put me
in the very placet There was an awful
old cabinet. 1 managed to pull open the
door and was tugging at the other, when
jny candle went out —how, I don't know
—somebody seemed to blow it out. 1
cant tell you what became of it; all 1
know is I jumped into bed with my
boots on. and lay trembling there for
hours, Frith—literally for hours—till
sleep took me at last; and never was 1
more thankful than when I awoke and
saw the son shining into the yellow boy's
room."
■ NO TRUTH IN THE STORY.
The circumstantiality with which Mr.
Frith tells these short tales must con
vince his readers that he is thoroughly
satisfied in his Own mind that the inci
dents which he carefully describes all
happened at Knebworth. And yet, in
that respect, he is altogether out in his
reckoning. There is no yellow boy's
room in that grand old house of the Lyt
tons at Knebworth. Lord Castlereagh
never spent a night there, nor is it knowu
that he ever visited the place in his life.
In the autumn of 1884 I spent two or
three very agreeable days at Knebworth,
tho guest of Lord Lytton, who very kindly
showed me everything of interest about
his home and its charming surroundings.
I thought it strange that the yellow
hoy's room—if there really was such a
zoom—had not been open to me, aud that
the very story associated with it in tho
[Frith reminiscences had been kept back.
So 1 sent off a hurried note to Owen
Meredith, then performing his embassa
dorial functions in the gayest capital in
.Em-ope, and an early mail brought me
these lines:
"Paris, Bth Feb'y. 1888.
"My Dear Mr. Stewart —I answer
your letter of the 12th ulto. in desperate
and unavoidable haste. Mr. Fnth's
autobiography is all wrong about the
story of the 'Yellow Boy.' That story
-was told by Sir Walter Scott of Lord
Castlereagh, who is said to have seen
tbe "Yellow Boy" in some house in Ire
land at the time when he was secretary
for Ireland, just before the union, and
the story went that the apparition then
predicted to him the mode of his death.
But tho incident certainly did not occur
at Knebworth, nor do I think Lord
Castlereagh was ever there. Yours very
faithfully, Lytton."
The Castlereagh story is quite familiar
to the readers of Scott and Lockhart's
noble biography.—lndependent.

TIIE LOS ANGELES HERALD; FRIDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 12, 1892
A Duty for Every City Woman.
The physician who attended tho re
cent fatal outbreak of diphtheria in a
prominent New York family in his pub
lished interview opens up serious possi
bilities. He is a specialist in the dis
ease, and he is quoted as saying that he
often sees a siphon of soltzer standing in
a room where he is visiting a patient
prostrated with the malady. Such si
phon, he declares in substance, unless
most carefully and antiseptically
cleansed, will convey infection to sub
sequent users. And everybody knows
what the cleansing of public bottles is
apt to be. The same objection has been
urged against our present system of
traveling milk vessels. So accepted is
this that, when typhoid fever specially
prevails, physicians frequently urge
persons to boil all milk used as well as
water.
It would be a wise thing if the women
of our cities should co-operate to at
tempt to reduce the evil. If inspectors
visited bottle washing places it is sus
pected some valuably unpleasant infor
mation might be gained. In the mean
time, every housekeeper can make it her
conscientious duty to see that the bot
tles which daily leave her domain are
untainted and wholly clean. This will
need inspection, as tho best of maids
get careless in a duty oft performed.
If there is illness in tho house redouble
your vigilance and be rewarded with
the reflection that in this respect at least
the sin of contributing to your neigh
bor's menace does not lie at your door.—
Her Point of View in New York Times.
Family Criticism.
If a man's foes are those of his own
household, certainly a woman's severest
critics are to be found there also. Few
of us realize how surely our words and
actions are being weighed and measured
by the observers, large and small, who
surround us. We are unconscious of
the judgments passed, because they are
usually silent ones. When they happen
to be spoken out instead of only thought
we are taken aback and sometimes ap
palled at the arraignment and sentence
of which we had been entirely unaware.
It is the privilege of the family critic
to be ruthlessly frank. Politeness is
unnecessary, and consideration for the
feelings of the condemned one ridicu
lously inappropriate. The strictures are
given carelessly and freely, and offense
at the plain speaking is a contingency
never imagined.
"It is only Jennie; she always says
what she thinks." "No one minds Will;
he always speaks out." "One's family,
of course, may say anything." And
why, pray?
Children are the most terrible of fam
ily critics. They see so straight. Your
"no" to them means "no," and your
."yes," "yes." You cannot deceive them
with half truths or by a juggle of words.
They cut through your subterfuge and
convict you at once. Their straightfor
ward simplicity makes you ashamed of
your falsehood.—Harper's Bazar.
Valuable Deposit.
One of the most remarkable of all de
posits of silver is at the Broken Hill
mines in Australia. At that place the
precious metal is found lying in an enor
mous lode.
It has been suggested by Mr. George
Sutherland that this great deposit of
silver was left by a large salt lake that
has now disappeared, but tracks of
whose former existence are clearly to be
seen.
According to this interesting theory,
the salt lake was formed of imprisoned
ocean water, a large quantity of which
was caught in a basin between ranges
of hills when Australia was lifted out of
the sea. This water gradually leaked
and was evaporated away, leaving de
posits of the mineral and other matter
that it had held in solution.
If this view is correct, the great store
of silver at Broken Hill is a rich gift be
stowed by the sea upon the land; but
man has discovered the precious deposit,
and seized it in his capacity of tho lord
of the earth.—Youth's Companion.
Why a Blue Rose Is Impossible.
A florist makes the assertion that a
blue rose is among the impossibilities,
but, while an explanation of this curi
ous fact may be equally impossible, he
fails to mention a very interesting law
which governs the colorings of all
flowers. A knowledge of this law would
save many flower growers hours of un
availing and foolish hope. The law is
simply this: The three colors—red, blue
and yellow—never all appear in tho same
species of flowers; any two may exist,
but never the third. Thus we have the
red and yellow roses, but no blue; red
and blue verbenas, but no yellow; yel
low and blue in the various members of
the viola family (as pansies, for in
stance), but no red; red and yellow
gladolii, but no blue, and so on.—St.
Louis Republic.
The Pimpernel.
The common pimpernel, "poor man's
weather glass," has the disadvantage
of being a native plant and has been al
most completely expelled from our
flower gardens in favor of exotics, which
are rarer but lack much of being as
pretty. The pimpernel is a charming
little flower, which opens about 8 in the
morning and closes late in the afternoon,
but has the remarkable peculiarity of
indicating a coming shower by shutting
up its petals. For this reason, if for no
other, it deserves encouragement, and
would, appropriately take the place of
some of the ugly tulips and other im
ported flowers now so popular.—St.
Louis Globe-Democrat.
Invention of the Fire Engine.
Toward the close of the Seventeenth
century M. Duperrier in Prance, Herr
Leupold in Germany and Mr. Newsham
in England introduced almost simul
taneously fire engines having an air
chamber, \vhich rendered the stream of
water and uniform. In ad
dition to this these engines were
equipped with flexible leather hose, in
vented by Jan Van der Heide and his
brother, and which was first put into
practical use in Amsterdam in the year
1672.—Detroit Free Press.
