A gale of wind and unsprlnkled
streets made this another distressing
day in town. - Late in the afternoon
when It had become unbearable long

prehend what Is needed.
BASEBALL DOINGS.
President Caia has received three
more contracts this week: H. Brau

Ward., -"Muggsy" writes that he Is
In fine condition and Is ready to com
mence the fight fir the pennant at
once,
The local management has com
pleted negotiations In transferring
Red" Ward to Minneapolis.
It Is rumored that Ellsworth has
signed Poindexter, who played out
field for It last rear, as manager.
Ellsworth Is the only team known In
any league under the national agree
ment that . deposed a .manager who
won a penant for It a year previous.
It Is sure hard luck for George Sle
gle who piloted Ellsworth, through a
successful season last rear. Ells
worth will have a classy team this
season. It Is understood that It even
outbid Texas league teams In tbat
stall for ball players.

The high school team will play
a team composed of the alumni Mon

the alumni has a fast team picked

It looks as. though that high school

A Topeka dispatch says D. R. Oor-

Inspector which J. T. White of Ot

Herington,' Kan., March 23. 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

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. It Is proba
ble that, as the administration does
not seem inclined to clear the
ords but to go on with the Irregular
proceedings regardless of the good
of 'the town, tbe businessmen who
really want Abilene to do things will
will unite In some legal action to
carry the matter to tha courts. It Is
