That the ghost like- form of C. Borbacb formerly, a wealthy man tit this city, Is appearing every evening at sun down on the front porch of tbe house in which he died, is the sworn opin ion of practically every cltisea living in tha west end of Herington. The ghost scare has become so gen eral that the neighbors In the vicinity of the house are living in their homes In horror and the vast traffic that once came In over West Walnut street has been shifted to other' streets In the city the house, the neighbor hood and this part of the city Is shunned. ' ? It is said that a white form, repre senting In every detail the profile and featurea of the late Mr. Borbacb, ap pears on the front porch of his for mer home. Tbe house Is an odd affair. the front porch topped with a huge cone like tower. Tbe house Itself Is built In ghostly detail and In Its situ ation upon the brow of a steep hill, it has caused consternation among tbe people of the city.7 . ;' ' At his death Mr. Borbacb. was one of .the wealthy cltlsens of Herington. He came here In the early days when the -Rock Island and the Missouri Pa cific first built through the city. He bought up considerable land at that time and when tbe Rock Island estab lished their large terminals In thii city the property was turned Jnto Last summer Mr. Borbacb. died. He owned at that time many housss over the city and was considered wealthy He lived in a small but most queer houte on the br'.u ot the Wall' street hill and tor n aity years was w ell known Hf "e lu this part of 1 lie city. He spent all of his time In warm weather on the front poroof he house smoking a large old si, pipe. His position on this porch, the smoking of the pipe and the general surroundings gave tbe place a distlncetlve touch and the toui still remains. - $',. . The bouse has been vacant most of the time since tbe deatb of the old man. His sons have tried to live In it but they declare openly that In-the night they hear noises, and the door to the front porch will open, as the ghost of the old man walks to his customary seat, lights his pipe and smokes. ' Germs All who have lived In the house promptly make the same statements and the place Is known as the "Retreat of the Borbacb. GhoBt." People who have passed the house during the night, claim to have aeen blm on the porch. . Peter Pppp, general foreman of fbe Hawley lumber Interests In this city, and a sane business man de clares that he has seen the ghost of the old familiar figure on the porch many 1 times. During the present nuonllghted nights many reports of tht ghost have been given. Only one ticket will be In the field for the spring election April 5. Nominations closed last night.'

This at time when the city was 1 at last ready to go ahead has been a damper on all enthusiasm and the taxpayers do not like the outlook.
