1 i THE EVERLASTING GHOST. A rhanlom ITiat Ha 3TaIe ZJttle lrog res In Thousand of Year. We aro asked to believe in ghosts be cause in every age there have been ghost stories. But would it not be more nat ural to suppose that in every age the hu man mind has been subject to aberra tions, and that some specific weakness or irregularity of the mental constitution or of the physical organ, the brain, on which all thinking, so far as we are aware, de pends, has probably given rie to this particular class of hallucinations? "We cannot pretend as yet to know the mind thoroughly in health and disease, but this we do know, that there are thou sands and'millions of persons whose Uvea are never intruded on by ghost3 and who know absolutely nothing of "occult" phenomena. According to a reverend gentleman's figures, only one woman in twelve and one man in ten has had any 'occult" experiences. Now, what we should like very much to have would be a further analysis of these figures show ing the percentage of flighty or other wise ill balanced minds among the "oc cult' and the "nonoccult" (if we may so apply the words) classes respectively. Our own experience would lead ns to believa that the proportion would bo vastly larger in the former class than in the latter. "Who has not known many examples of the tremulous, nervous, hy persensitive, wonder loving, hysterical or semihysterical type of constitution among the devotees of ghost lore? And if such examples occur, as -we believe they must, to tho mind of every one, is it not at least a probable inference that "occultism" in it3 various phases has something to do with that kind of mind? The ghost may be very ancient, but we do not believe in him tho more. Tho trouble about him is that ho has mado no progress since tho earliest time3. In fact, on the whole, he has fallen back. We should not bo disposed to talk of the "levitition" of Elijah ourselves had not tho Rev. Mr. Ilaweis used the term lie fore us. But if, following the reverend gentleman's lead, we consider the proph et's alleged translation in that light, surely it was a most successful feat in "levitation," and a littlo ahead of any thing the modern world can show. And, speaking generally, the appari tions and visions and other spiritual ot occult phenomena of cjicient times had more "body" to them than those of our own day. , If therefore tho ghost has made no progress in tho courso of thrto or four thousand years, if ho is just as nninstructive and inconsequent a phe nomenon now as he wa3 when we first encountered him, if not a little more so, wo may perhaps be pardoned for think ing that ho may bo safely and fairly ig nored by people who liavo an averages amount of business to attend to. Pop ular Science Monthly. Lmiar'i Jajs Hair. There is a young lady now prominent in Washington society to whom as a little girl Lamar revealed one blood curdling reminiscence. Ho was accus tomed to visit her father's house and had often noticed her gazing curiously at his hair, which ho woro very long and flat to the sides of his head. One day he said to her: "My dear, you look as if you wanted to ask me something. What is itr "If you please, Mr. Lamar." she an swered, "why do you wear your hair that way at the sides?" Lamar drew on his most serious expression, and in alow, hoarse whisper .between his lifted palms he replied, "Because, my dear, I onco hand a light with a man and l!e cut off my ears!" For along time afterward tho littlo girl was struck with a chill of horror every time she looked at him, until one day in the midst of a gesture he swung his hair back far enough to assure her that his head was supplied with its normal com plement of members. But she never, to h 1nv of Lis death, entirelv cot over the effect made upon her by the pretend ed dread recret.-Ex.ta Field s Washing ton- The 3Ieanlnff of Telertly Few reonle would be apt to under stand what you meant if you talked to them about "telepathy." New sciences spring up so rapidly nowadays that it is fciTrl vrorTr to keen track of the new" words c oined for them. Telepathy is re lated in meaning to telegraphy, in that it is a 6crt of mental telegraphy, or feel ing at a distance, being derived from the Greek, pathos, feeling and tele, at a dis tance. It is only a now and more scien tific name, however, for what we com monly speak of as mind rending, though not all mind reading is telepathy. Richard Hodson, secretary of the So ciety for Psychical Research, defines te lepathy as tho ability of one mind to im press or bo impressed by another rnina Citherwise than through, the recognized channels of sense, and cites some remark- abfe instances of mind reading and thoasrht transference investigated by the society. These, ho thinks, confirm the conclusion that thought transference is a reality. New York Commercial Adver tiser. Greek Noses. We learn that tho nose of Socrates was not Greek, but such as Greek artists nsuallv assicmed to satyrs. Occasional ly, as in a beautiful group of a satyr playing dice with a nymph oaabronzo mirror, they gave satyrs another kind of nose. Tho noses of tho ladies in the Tanacrra, terra cotta are of all agreeable orders of nose, not necessarily Greek. The chances are that the Greeks varied as much as wo do in their noses, while the tradition of their art preferred the conventional straight nose. In the same way the kind of Romans who had their portraits dono on coins and gem3 were just the sort of energetic, conquering people who have Roman noses every where, bike William of Orange and the Duke of Wellington.
