GHOSTS THAT HAUNT THE UNITED STATES CAPITOL. A Story oi gyectrrn Tlmt Stnlk at KlKlit When (In? I!nlln of I.t-nl.lu-(liin Arc Gloom)' nliil Drurrletl, nn Told li Out- of tliPjOlil (iuardk. Like uios l repositories of good stories, tho nnclcnt uiiiu who has spent dec ades ns n guard In the cnpltol In Wash ington did not yield up tlie fulliiesu of bis nnrratory riches without n struggle. v "It's uiipleutnnt to be tnndo a mock of by the skeptical," hu protested. "Do you belltv in ghosts, young innti" "If 'answering In the niflrinatlve be gets nn Interesting tale, I do," returned the writer. "Well, starting on the premlso that you do believe to some extent iu tho supernatural, I will admit you to uiy confidence," resumed the old guard. and here goes for the authentic yarn of the spooks that haunt tho nation's Capitol "In the long, monotonous wntcbes of the night innumerable are the spooks. hobgoblins nnd the eerie, vapory things which glide from the shadowy uooks and crannies of the Intauglble nowhere to people the capitol's vast fftretclicrt of darkness. Of course you know of the- extraordinary acoustic freaks which obtain In many parts of tho great building how a whisper, a breathed word at one particular point is audible at another scores of feet dis tant? Yes. Now, at night theso acous tic spirits simply go mad. Where they by day were pygmies they expand Into giants, nnd a whistle, n sudden sound n footfall, resolves itself Into a pan deuionlum. "Weird, terrifying noises beat upon the eardrums of the watchmen as they pursue their lonely patrols through tbe seeming miles of corridors, and then tlie spooks, the shades of the nation's great, the ustrnl bodies of those that! tolled In obscurity for the nation's good, dodvo the watchmen s step, somo I ...... I lii nt.nlorotlc silence, some nuub nc. rfome sobbing, but nil of them horrible -horrible." The old man paused to muse. "Do you know," he snld, breaking into IiIb own reverie explosively, "Feb S3 Is a date dreaded by many of tho cnpltol night guards? It was ou this day. In 1848. that John Quincy Adams died iu the chamber of the house of representatives, now Statuary hall, where the exact spot is marked by n brass tablet. Promptly at midnight on every anniversary of his death the shade of John Quincy Adnms appears in n sort of phosphorescent glow over this brass tnblet. Oil. dozens of guards hnvo seen It from time to time as well as I, and 1 can refer you to many of flim fnr ntllrmntlnn nf mv nssortlniis. "Once over the spot the shade begins to gesticulate, after the manner of a member addressing the house. Then, all of a sudden, the fine face becomes aistortert and agonize.!, tue gracefully down sinks tho shade with nil the movements of nn expiring man. Then the phosphorescent glow fades awny. 'aim inc.cuicreai cuigy uissoives. "Hut. although lost sight of, Its pres ence is stilt made Known uy tne'ciump. llop, clump, llop,' of invisible foot- falls departing down one of the long vacant corridors. "Stranger than this 1b the ghost of the entire cougress of 1843, which np pears in vigorous If spooky session ev- (try once in awhile in Statuary ball, the oid hall of representatives, as 1 have nrevlously remarked. Iuaudible. but spirited, are the debates; energetic to I the bursting point of vehemence are the silent political dissensions. Pro voked by n doubting Thomas, n mem ber of .the cnpltol night wntch several years ago made affidavit that ho hud seen tills ghostly congress In session. Yes, lia was a sober man and truo. "The shade of General John A. Lo gan is n fre(ueut visitor at the cnpltol. Almost every alternate night at half pust 12 o'clock this ghost materializes nt the door of the room occupied by the senate committee on military nnd ruilitla. Blleutly the door swings opeu, and out steps the looming nnd lumi nous presence, to stalk In stately. dig nity away Into tho swallowing gloom. This Is a favorite phantom with the guards. Its conduct is exemplnry. "Thou there is tho shade of Vlco President Wilson, who died In his room in the senate end of the capltol, you will recall. Its peregrinations are few and desultory. When it docs come, tliero is always an expression of con cern and seir nb&rptlou in the ghostly face. The movements of tho vapory body are restless and hurried. "All of tho older members of the night watch are well acquainted with Vice President Wilson's apparition nnd never fall to salute it. although, truth to tell, the shade remains haughtily In different to their deference. This spook rarely falls to put In nn appearanco when the body of a dead legislator or statesman of national renown Is lying In state In the capltol. "Deep in the Biibcellar vaults spooks of lesser magultudu revel In hordes. Immediately beneath the hall of rep resentatives every night Is to bo found n tall, erect, gaunt specter, whoso iden tity has remained a mystery for years lo splto of uuccuslng efforts on the part of the night watch to uncover tho secret of Its origin and anteced ents. , Its hands are. clasped behind Its transparent back in a convulsive clutch, and tho face evinces n condi tion of emotions prodigiously wrought upon. Mnny attempts hnvo been made Uy guards with rubber, soles ou their shoes to catch this wraith unawaroo, but fiiuro is tho invariable result.
