had udden all day througu an apna
Tently iatei-minablo pino forest of north
Georgia, and as evening closed in both
myself and my horse, tired and hungry,
begun to look out for some place ut which
wo could obtain rest and refreshment for
"the night. My objpctivo point was Cala
ghau s, a stage road station where 1 ex­
pected to meet u:y friend Whipple, with
whom 1 had promised to stop for a day or
two. I should have reached his place bo-

In this dilemma 1
V-uy tliis dilemma 1 was glad to per
cenoat some distance before me a faint
mid uncertain light, toward which I ur-cd
my tired horSe.
A tew moments brought us to a sub­
stantial log. house standing a little back
~lroru the road, in the midst of a "clear­
ing'. The bars wero down, in tho care­
less fashion cf this thinly settled pert of
the coutiti" to th
i'v, so, riding dircctly up
house, I rapped smartly upon the d».r
with. i::y whip handle. 1 struck 1:10 as
rather strange, that on a warm September
evening such as this both doors and win­
dows should bo closed, and. as a bright
pine knot bla/.e was visible through tlio
chinks, 1 was still mora surprised at re­
ceiving no answer to ny summons. Uap
P^'o again, I was conscious of a stir with­
in -a woman's voice broke out i:i a half
fcuppressed exclamation, and two children
began to cry.
Surmising that these might be timid
people lei I alone in the cabin I called out
cheerily, and at the samo moment my
horse whinnied in r. friendly manner.
Upon this the door was partially opened
by a woman whoso half eager, half fright­
ened face was made visible by the light of
a pine torch which sho held above her
head. I briefly explained the situation,
and the woman at once opened the door
wide.
"Come right in!" she said almost eagerly.
"You'uns lies foliered the wrong road an'
lef' Calaghan's mor'n Gvo miles back,
Thar ain't a place roun' hero wliar you
kin git a bed an'supper less you be kin
tent to stay hero to-uight. Thar's a nice

to her grailTthcr's an' for vittles wo kin
Rive you fried chickcn, an' bac'n-an'-eggs,
if that'll kintent you. Here, Joe, take
the lioss an' see lie's tended to."
Je woman rocked herself uneasily in
chair and her husband put up his
land wiped his damp brow.
J|ok-a-hyar, stranger," he resumed,
^Bsively, "narra body kin say thet
iarney's ono to b'lieve in spooks an'

I seen thet critter fly like a bird

with the chills when I got home 'bout day­
break. Ole llick'ry come home safe an'
soun' a lectio later, but taint likely him
nor me'll forgit what wo seen thet. night."
I hardly knew what to say to this singu­
lar story. lay own idea was that Mr.
Carney had probably taken a drop too
much at "tho mill"—but not daring to
hint at thia 1 contented myself with sug
jesting an optical illusion, tad explaining
the nature cf some ordinary nearly siinii:.
rases of which I had heard. But here my
hostess interrupted.
"Thet nought be, mister, ef 'twan't
nobody but husband an' ole llick'ry as

mo'sjthet very mhiit when tiiey'uns seen

solemn earnestness. "Thet were Tuesday

Lint Joe. a boy of some 1:J or 1!) years,
held back. He peered apprehensively out
into the darkness, and at length proposed
nat I should accompany him to the sta­
ble, as he said, to see that the horse was
properly attended to. With this request
1 complied, and on my return to the cabin
felt considerably enlivened by tho wel
odor cf boiling coffee and other
.:inds V.-hich my hostess was preparing
lor my supper, now observed that there
is a man lying on a bed in a corner of ities of
tho neat aud comfortable room—a pale.
anxious looking man, v.-ho, his who
told me, was •'down v.-ith a spell o' the
the shakes," meaning chilis a.:d t'ever, a
complaint not uncommon in this part of
the country.
',It ain't took a howlt on mo for a many
years back," he said, raising himself on his
pillow, "lior wouldn't tlmtimoef twarn't

I had como by the ford, 1 replied, but
had seen nothing at all unusual and then
I noticed that the husband and wife looked
at each other and then glanced nervously
toward tho curtained windows.
'•'Tell him 'bout it, Dick," the woman
^eaid, as sho turned the nicely browned
chicken in the frying pan. "Mebbe he'll
kjiow more 'bout the nature of it than
we'uns."
At this the man abruptly commenced.
"Ye see I was down to Yvocd's mill
with ole llick'ry an'two bags o' corn to bo

right by thet winder. We'nns all seen
it, fer the pine light was a-blazin' on his
face, an' he was a-lookin' in ez ho skum
past. And befo' wo could so much as
holler out, he had shot round' the houso
an' past tho doo' thai*, which was standin'
open, an' not a eouu' did he make, but
jes' slicked ri*lit by liko a sperit. An' it's
my belief," with a sort of suppressed sob
in her throat, "it's my belief thet thing,
whatsoever it be, lien "come to warn ua o'
somethin' unlucky 'bout to happen." And
hero sho cast an anxious glanco at her
husband, rind then around on tlie group
of white headed little ones who hovered
about her.
Though more than ever puzzled by this
account"! did what 1 could to ciieer up the
who wero oil evidently in a state
of great nervous excitement. Having
partaken with a hearty appetite of my
meal, I stopped outside' for fresh air, anil
after walking slowly around the house,
stepped up to tho br.j'S and stood looking
down tho road. Tho moon had risen anil
already shed a clear light on tho whito
sandy track and the open space around
the cabin. Nothing moved," until as I
stared down tho dim vista I becamo
aware of an unnaturailv tall and phantom
..i ,...i
like apparition visihlo iu tho patches of
moonlight that tiickcd the road, now ap­
pearing, now vanishing and all the time
rapidly approaching to where I stood.
I At tho Lrst glance of this apparition I
unconsciously held my breath in a kind of
expectant suspense. The next moment a
gleam of recognition hashed upon me—tho
whole mystery of the haunting "spook"
was explained—aud in the excitement and
amusement uf the discovery I
gave a hilar­
ious shout. Tho figure as it neared me
slackened its speed, and with an easy
sweep slowly and gracefully glided to my
side.
"Hello!" he cried cheerily, "what'sup?"
So soon as I could recover from an irre­
sistible lit of laughter I explained to him
the state of affairs with tho family in the
cabin. Lie expressed much concern for
tho mischief ho had unintentionally
caused. lie and a friend were making a
bicycling tour through the state, and hav­
ing been for some days delayed at Cala­
ghan's by tho indisposition "of his coin
p..u::.n, he had each evening amused him­
self by talcing a '-run" in the cool of the
v.-ilight along this level pine forest road,
lie had not noticed the man aud the liorso
at the ferry, and regretted that he had on
the succeeding evening been tempted by
tue open bars and tho level clearing to
make a circuit around the house, deeming
himself unnoticed, no one having hailed
him. And ho was'now willing and anx­
ious to make an explanation and apology
to tho disquieted family.
1 went before in order to prepaj-G the
way, end with some difficulty persuaded
them to have an interview with the
"spook." He came gently wheeling up to
the. door, aud 1 think 1 never saw a more
relieved as well as wondering group cf
faces than those which looked on while tho
stranger explained tho nature and qual
iis marvelous vehicle. Mr. Car-
ney listened with great interest, his wife
laughed hysterically smd tho children wero
as delighted as though they had been at a
circus—especially when the "spook" dis­
tributed among them a handful of nickels
before taking his departure.
Ne::t morning when called to an early
breakfast, 1 found Mr. Carnc-y up and
looking quito nnliko '.lie* man had seen
on tho previous evening. His wife ex
lies" seldom lasted
three days but 1
had my own impression that in this in­
stance tho attack had been owing as much
to the fright i'.s to tho ducking which her
husband had rccrivod.

Latties In Itallar, ,'joeiety.
American ladies in Italy have very great
advantages. They aro siinpatiea with tho
Italians. Many Italian noblemen at the
court have American wives who are ladies
of honor to tho queen and aro great fa­
vorites. There is no more deliglitful so­
ciety than that cf Rome it always re­
minds Americans of Washington, the
same small set of intimates, who meet
everywhere, with a large entourage of
diplomats, and an English colony of dis­
tinguished people.
No one ever gets very intimate, how­
ever, with Italians'. They are polite,
warm hearted and social up to a certain
point but there it ceases. There is'in
liome, the more's the pity, a slow vanish­
ing of the picturesque, but there is still
ono relic of the past. A 1'oman great
lady may wear a modern gown, hut sho
retains her splendid jewels and tho pride
of her thousand ancestors sho repels any
intimacy beyond a certain point. They
never wish to bo touched, even by a fa­
miliar hand iu a friendly visit. The rule
to follow is, never touch tho person it is
sacred. When a lady in Italian society
wishes to bo very polite she will shako
hands once, but rarely a second time. If
her American friend is in affliction, sho
will como and take tho friend's hand and
press it to her heart tenderly. iSho may
kiss the friend on both cheeks, but there
is none of that freo and easy caress­
ing, that locking of arms, that douce,
gaic, amiablo manner of tho French, nor
that almost careless school e-irl intimuev
which provi

The successful western newspaper is,
alwve all things, enterprising, and this
quality, iriw so wonderfully developed, is
a legacy from the pioneer press. Tho
special telegraph wires c.f today from
Cincinnati and Chicago to New York,
Washington slftd important nearby c: 1 ies
had their prototypes in the pony e:.presses
and special messengers of the prc-railroad
and ante-telegraph times. And it re­
quired more courage and pluck to send
out tiie latter than lo put in the former.
This enterprise displayed itself in many
startling ways, as it does today. It ad­
apted itself to surrounding circumstances.
When Denver, in 1850, was but a collec­
tion jf tents, rude fdianties and corrals on
Cherry creek, and the nearest United
.Stales postofBce was at Fort Laramie, 220
miles away, when the mails arrived hut
once or twice a month, and were uncer
tain at that, and news from "the States"
came only at long and irregular intervals,
the editor of Tiie Reeky Mountain News
was tiie one who sent a messenger to Fort I
Laramie to bring back, in spite of thesuf
fcring and hardships the journey entailed, I
a mule load of letters and eastern news
papers. And his readers, with that gen
erosir.y that has always distinguished
western newspaper
constituencies, showed
their appreciation o-f Lis enterprise in a
substantial manner.—Z.

DISCOURAGING TO DAKOTA.

AuiiMKuion Indefinitely.
BISMARCK, Dak.. Nov
24.—Amongthe
latest developments with regard to the
prospective admission of Dakota into the
Union is the statement of a prominent
politician in Washington thai it will be
impossible to do anything for Dakota
until the Oklahoma biil .is disposed of.
A reside!.t of I his city addressed a letter
to a congressman asking why the Demo­
crats should not accept tiie inevitable
and act upon the Dakota matter next
month, in that way the Democrats
couhi have the credit for admitting the
territory, and this would go far lowam'
building up the Democratic party iu Da­
kota. The bill for tiie admission of
South Dakota having already passed the
senate, this action would permit the
southern h.,if of the territory to Uvome
a sia.u- within a few months, and by
parsing an enabling act for Xonh Da
kola two suites would he added lo the
Union long before the most hopeful have
expecovl. in reply k: this letter the eon
gressnian stated that there was very
little iiope of acting on tiie Dakota (pies
tio'i until tiie next emigre.-.*. as the bill
for the formation of the Territory of Ok­
lahoma has bei given precede ace on
the eukmdar and its friends wiii not eon
sent to having il set back fur :u\y her
territorial matters, lie states further,
that in his opinion the divL-.hm of Dakota
into two siaies is very doubtful, even if
tiie ii'epuiaicans liave tare majority in
the house, as the Eastern members are
jealous of the growing power of the West
and will not consent to giving Dakota
twice as much power in the United
Slates .senate as New York or any others
of the Eastern states. This statement is
discouraging to the people of the terri­
tory. who fear that filibustering to delay
statehood wiii be resorted lo by the poli­
ticians.

Having interviewed Mr. Jno. T. Claver
in regard to his reported lucky draw in I
the Louisiana State Lottery, we iind that
ho held one-twentieth of ticket No. -1(5,- I

in the Company's drawing on
the ytli of October last, and that ho has
received his money Itl0--oii the
same. Mr. Claver's ticket cost him ono
dollar, and was the first and only money
lie had ever invested in that way.
By an agreement with Mr. William
Foster of this place, who also held a tic
ket in the institution, that if either of
their tickets drow a prize they won Id
divide equally, Mr. Foster receives one
half the amount.
Mr. Claver and Mr. Foster are both
well respected citizens of this vicinity,
and whatever may be said pro and eon
of the lottery itself, this amount of nion
ey will elevate them from moderate to
well-to do circumstances, and it is to be
hoped that it will bo invested in a way
that v.ill give it circulation in this city
