a shadowy something dancing' before

he flew. He crossed the- Belt line
tracks with a bound, then felt ho
was slowing up. But still he kept
on until the curve that Delaware
avenue takes before it reaches the
culvert where the Park road passes
over it. Ahead he could see the
white shimmer of an electric -light
illuminating its dazzling circle be
neath it. He felt the icy hands that
had never relaxed their pressure
from-the moment he had first felt
them loosen a bit of their grip.
He was regaining control. But
the machine seemed to be dragging
something behind it. He felt he
could now turn and see the ghostly
monster behind him. He craned his
head a bit, and at that moment he
felt a terrible blow over the head.
St?nned, he dropped from his wheel
and lay on the pavement. Ho de

He lay on the pavement for some
five minutes, when Zeiler came up.
He was riding like mad. Zeiler
stopped when he saw his friend and
helped him to his feet. When
Springwell told his story at first
Zeiler thought he was joking, but he
was finally convinced from the look
of abject terror in Springwell's
face. They revisited the place next
day, Springwell unstrung and hardly
able to wheel. From the spot where
he first felt the power of the some
thing to where he was hit is exactly
three miles and a few rods over.
Springwell wrote to the man from
whom he bought the wheel, and he
received an answer that is certainly
queer. The dealer said that a man
brought the wheel in in good shape
and asked a very small price for it,
and that he, the dealer, thinking it
had been stolen, would not buy it.
The man swore it had not been stol
r en and offered to let it remain there
until he was satisfied. He had kept
it through the winter and never a
sigr of any claimant; hence he had
sold it. *
Springwell is at a loss to account
for the strange occurrence. He is
utterly unable to say what could
have been the cause, save on the hy
pothesis that some man was mur
dered while on it and that it has
thus become haunted. However
that may be, the fact remains that

AFTER DINNER COFFEE.
An Excellent Way to Take It Is In ;
the Form of Jeliy.
Coffee is very commonly drunk j
after dinner, a custom which pgr- |
haps is justified, particularly when ;
wine drinking accompanies the meal, !
for coffee is an antidote to alcohol, j
A hot draft of coffee is undoubted
ly a powerful stimulant, eroding
both mental and physical fcftigue to

of hot coffee disagrees with many

tho digestive process, and the dys

drinking of cofi'ee is in any case an
But it is often forgotten that cof
fee can be taken in other ways and
in none better than in the form, of
jelly. A clear coffee, jelly after din
ner is every bit as good as the hot
infusion, while it is free from- some
of the drawbacks of-the latter. Cof
fee, unlike alcohol, diminishes or

energy without the collapse which

gelatin in the form of jelly is cool

excessive acidity of the stoiacioh.
Gelatin is what is known as a
"proteid sparer"?that is, it sa^es
the destruction of proteid, such as
Having regard to these facts,
therefore, coffee jelly should form a
very suitable sequel to dinner and
an excellent substitute for the in
fusion. Moreover, the astringent
principles of coffee, which, however,
are different in kind and degree
from those present in tea, are nulli
fied by the gelatin. In short, jelly
is an excellent vehicle for coffee,
but, as is necessary in making the
infusion, the quantity of coffee in
the jelly should not be stinted. Cof
fee serves an admirable purpose in
dietetics, and those with whom it
disagrees when taken in the form of
a hot infusion will very probably
find the jelly quite satisfactory.?
A Story of Rotsettl.
James MacNcill Whistler used to
tell the following story about Dante
Gabriel Rosse'ti, and in view of the
famous preraphaelite's eccentrici
ties in his later years it can readily
be believed. Bossetti had invited
the painter of nocturnes and har
monies to dine with him at his house
in Chelsea, and when Whistler ar
rived he was' shown into a recep
tion, room. Seating himself, he was
soon disturbed by a noise which ap
peared to be made by a rat or mouse
m the wainscoting of the room.
This surmise was wrong, as he
found the noise was in the center of
the apartment. Stooping, to his
amazement he saw Rossetti lying at
full length under the table.

DOGS IN FiCTION.
Parts They Have Played In the Great
Although it may be conceded that
among the animals of fiction the
horse holds first place, the part
played by dog?., especially in modem
literature, is very large and impor
tant. The pages of many famous
novels have presented us with mem
bers of the canine race as careful In
drawn and as lovingly delineated as
any of the human characters intro
duced. Not infrequently the role of
hero or heroine is doubled, with, or
wholly supported by, a dog. And in
numberless'instances it is the inter
vention, conscious or unscon6cious,
of a dog upoD which the whole plot
turns. As might bo expected, it is

Trainers and Jockeys, as a Rule, Are ;
Exceedingly Superstitious. |
The world in general seems to rec
ognize that gamblers are as a class
most superstitious, but those usual
ly hard headed business men?the
trainers of race horses and the jock
eys they employ?are so notoriously
given to cherishing superstitions
that particular members of both
classes will not enter or ride a horso
?t certain places unless absolutely
compelled to do so against their bet
ter judgment by owners-of horses.
This superstition in regard to. lo

"What are you telling us ?"
"I'm just giving you a case of
stalwart affliction that ought to

"The kind of rheumatism that he

how to do it agreeably and discreet

his best when he is laughing heart

enjoy a joke or a situation quite as
much as he and laugh just as much,
but she manages to do it as a rule
without disarranging her features
or her toilet and without smiting
disagreeably on the tympani of
ether people. The tinkle of femi

CUBED TO STAY CURED BY
WHITE RIBBON REMEDY.
I announce to the world that I have an absolute
cure for drunkenness in White Ribbon Remedy,
based on thousands of cures made of the most ob
minute coses. In a majority of cases White Rib
bon Remedy was given secretly in tea, cofieo or
food, without the patient's knowledge. By de
grees the patlbut gets a dlitaite for intoxicants
and finally leaves off altogether. It is wonderful.
Many a herd drinker hat thus been reclsla ed and
restored to bis family and friends. While Ribbon
Remedy is easily given by following the simple
directions. It is taHelets, odorlois and perfectly
1 safe to give or take.
White Ribbon Remedy will cure or destroy the
diseased appetite for all alcoholic drinks, whether
the patient is a confirmed Inebriate, a "tlplor,"
sciai drinker or drunkard. Impossible for any
0 30 to have an appothe for alcoholic lhmora after
using White Ribbon Remedy. It restores a victim
to normal health, giving him or her steady norves
and a determination to resist te? p tat Ion. Batlds
