AN UNCANANY SECRET.
GR;M MYSTERY THAT LURKS WITHIN
E AN OLD ENGL!SH CASTLE.
Three .'Eon Oniiy Know the Truth
About the Terrifyixng Curse Which
rests Upon the Ancient Habitation,
and Their Lips Are Scaled.
Near the border of two Scottish coun
ties, set in the middle of a broad and
Nrtilc strath and protected from the
northern blasts by a range of lofty
mountains. there stands and has stood
for generations an ancient feudal cas
Although the oldest wing dates from
the thirteenth century, the greater part
of it was built in Jacobean days and
1 with its numerous turrets, battlements,
corbels and pinnacles recalls the glo
ries of Chantiily and other French
chateaux of the same period. It be
longs, together with the surrounding
estate, to a wealthy peer, whose grand
father married a north of England
heiress with a dowry of over a million
sterling. During the greater part of
the year the castle is untenanted save
by a few servants and caretakers, for
the ovner spends his winters abroad
and his summers in the English seat
brought into the family by the above
mentioned heiress. But during the
autumn months it is full of life an,
gayety, for its kindly lord and lady,
who have many children and grand
children and a host of friends, keep
open house then in their old Scottish
home, and its halls and corridors, nar
row passages and winding staircases
echo with the sound of merry voices
and the tread of youthful feet from,
morning till night.
Cheerful, however, as the invited
guest finds the old castle and warm as
is the welcome extended to him within
its walls, he must be possessed of little
curiosity and less imagination if he
does not feel his pulse somewhat quick
ened and his sleep somewhat broken
during the period of his residence
there, for he has probably heard al
ready something of the weird associa
tions which cling to the house and its
owners and of the mysterious secret
said to be known only to the head of
the family, to his heir and to one other
person, a secret so grim and terrible as
to affect the whole lives of those who
learn it and make them different from
No clew to the mystery has ever been
given by any one of the three deposita
ries of It, but popular belief has long
connected it with a secret chamber in
the castle which rumor assigns as the
habitation of a strange half human
creature of terrifying aspect and fabu
lous age, the incarnate embodiment of
the curse which rests upon the house.
In the gayest moments enjoyed by
those who during the bright days of
early autumn throng the guest cham
bers of the castle there is always an
Andefinable feeling of some weird pres
ence within Its walls.
"My dear young lady," were the
words of the host to one who was pay
Ing him her first visit as he bade her
good night, "it is, I know, the custom
of ladies to sit up late in one another's
rooms chatting and so on. Now, that is
not allowed here. When you go to your
room tonight remain in it and lock the
door." Once on n wet summer's after
noon some young people were enjoying
a noisy game of billiard fives in the
-hall. While the merry din was at its
height the tall, bowed figure of the
host was suddenly observed to be
standing in the midst of the party. "i,
want to ask you all," he said in his
quiet, courteous tones, "to go up to
your rooms at once and to remain in
them until a bell rings, when you will
be quite at liberty to come down
again." Instantly, like the Arabs of
the poem, the players "silently stole
away" to their respective chambers.
After a lapse of some twenty minutes
a bell did ring. Down they all came
and resumed their game where It had
!been broken off. No allusion was made
by any one to the mysterious behest
they had received.
EIn a quiet corner of the o'ld castle
there is a quaint little chapel, dating
from the restoration. decorated by a
Dutch artist of the time and fitted up
in recent days with a rich altar and
other accessories by the present owner,
Ewho spends much time there engaged
in solitary devotions. A year or two
ago a young of~eer, who'se visit had
been shortened by a sudden summons
to rejoin his regiment, had arranged
to leave the castle at an early hour
in the morning. Quitting his chamber
about dawn, he took a wrong turning
in the uncertain light and, pushing
open a swing door, found himself in
the chapel, which he had not before
entered. At the far end he observed,
Iwith great surprise, a motioniess fig
ure kneeling near the altar and moved
noiselessly up to see who it was. He
recognized his) host, still in evening
dress, as he had parted from him some
seven hours previously.
A young medical man was not long
ago staying at the castle by invitation
of its owner, who had made his ac
quaintance abroad, and, being some
thing of an invalId, had 'asked him to
come and take a few weeks' holiday
in Scotland and at the same time to
giv~e him the benefit of his professional
skil1. A room was assigned to him in
one of the towers, and he was in the
full enjoyment of his visit when it
w as suddenly brought to an end In
a str-ange fashion.
Coming home unexpectedly early
one afternoon from shooting, leaving
most of his fellow guests still in the
stubbles, and mounting to his turret
chamber, he noticed a sIngular circum
stance. A stain which he had often
observed in the carpet under the win
dow was now visible exactly at the op
posite corner of the room. showing
that 'during his few hours' Absence the
whole of the furniture must have been
moved out of the apartment and the
carpet taken up.
The Impulse came upon him to re
peat the process. Out into the passage
accordingly went bed, chairs, tables,
wardrobe and everything -else; up came
the carpet, and there In the center of
the floor was the Inevitable trapdoor.
Lifting it, he descried a steep flight of
steps, which he descended, lighted can
dle In hand, and found at the bottom a
p arrow, winding passage, along which
- e cautiously made his way. Suddenly
he was brought up short by a dead
white plastered wall, barring his far
ther advance, and, putting out his hand
to touch it, his finger went half an inch
into the plaster, which was soft, wet
and evidently quite newly laid on.
Smoothing it over as best he could (not
an easy task wvithout a proper imple
ment), he quietly retraced his steps to
him room, rearranged carpet and fur
niture exactly as he had found them
and went down to tea, keeping his own
counsel and saying nothing to any one
of his adventure.
Next morning while he was still in
castle. It Inclosea a check 'and briefly
informed him that his services were no
longer required and that a carriage
would be in readiness to take him to
the railway station at the earliest hour
convenient to himself.-London Mall.
NERVE ON THE GALLOWS.- r
When the Hangman Quit, the Convict t
Promptly Ilanged Himself.
Some time ago a Russian criminal
was erecutcd in St. Petersburg. He
had during two years murdered twelve
persons, the last one being a priest. The
law did not show this monster any t
mercy, but speedily condemned him to a
Stebljanski was the name of this
wholesale murderer, and he hoped to
the last for clemency. When the death
warrant was read and the keeper in
formed him that he had but six hours
to live he raged and swore to revenge
himself in the most horrible manner.
After being left alone in the cell the
first thing he did was to break his lamp,
and, procuring some matches, be se3t
fire to the oil. In a moment the flames ,
broke through the windows, and thte
entire building was for a time threat- I
ened with destruction. Fortunately the i
fire was discovered In time and got un- 1
der control before much damage had y
been done, but in the meantime a ter- a
rible struggle ensued between the keep- s
ers and the criminal, who had fortified t
himself with an iron bar taken from t
his bedstead. The irzft man to enter t
the cell was -knocked senseless, and It a
was only after being almost suffocated a
with smoke that the prisoner was b
finally overpowered. Next morning the Ij
execution took place. The condemned .
man ascended the scaffold with much y
bravado, made a thorough examination t
of the same and finally declared the a
rope was too short. 0
"I cannot get my head in the loop," s
he said, "and, though it will cause me l1
some inconvenience to wait, I will l
smoke a cigarette while you.are having e
it attended to."
He lighted a cigarette and, turning to d
the executioner, made a speech, point- V
ing out the detestable in his profession, d
and as a condemned criminal in Russia d
has certain rights no one dared to in- t:
terrupt him. 11
The executioner, who was really a o
tender hearted man, became visibly af
fected by the moralizing words -of the d
murderer and, turning to the crowd as- h
sembled before the scaffold, declared d
that his conscience did not allow him a
to proceed or to take a fellow man's t
life, and he then and there resigned his .
position and departed amid the shouts s,
of the assemblage.
This caused great confusion among t
the representatives of the law, for 1
where could they in a hurry get anoth- o
er executioner? The question was, a
however, solved by the condemned f
man, who declared that he would ex
ecute himself as soon as he got through d
smoking. Ile started an interesting t
conversation with the priest during b
the five minutes or so which he had b
left and recommended that he read t
Count Tolstoi's latest book, which con- a
tains striking remarks about the rela- A
tion of capital punishment to the teach- j
ings of Christianity. He then threw t]
a kiss to a pretty girl among the spec
tators, stuck his head in the loop and a
kicked away the trap beneath his feet
The Sling Among the Israeultes-. ti
The Inhabitants of Palestine made n
use In very ancient times of the sling, p
the most skillful in its use being the iL
tribe of Benjamin, whose boast It was 1
never to miss their aim. What makes j
their skill appear more surprising was
that they managed to sling with the left e
hand. The men who came to David's y
help at Ziklag were no less adroit t
They used at will cither the right hand t<
or the left. The sling was also the fa- t
vorite weapon of shepherds, who with
It drove away wild beats preying ont
their flocks. This makes David's vie- g
tory over the giant Gollath less sur- t
prising, as he had no doubt great prac- n
tie in the use of this instrument while r
guarding his father's sheep. C

Come Early and Get Your Melon!
It is needless to say that -when Mr. is
,ondoner's store opened in the morn- it
ig an ever increasing cloud of dusky li
umanity, with teeth that glistened si
rith the juice of anticipation, gathered a]
bout the entrance. Business in the W
tore was at a standstill, and travel on
ie street was blocked. No explana- a
on could appease the rising anger of "
at dark multitude. It was melons or V
riot-melons or that unheard of thing,
colored landslide to the Democracy. ts
Er. Londoner was at his wits' ends.
'here were no melons In th market "
nd none expected. Just as Londoner d]
-as preparing to abandon his store to 0
2e wrath of the justly incensed melon tl
ianiacs a car load of magnificent mel- tl
as dropped into one of the freight Il
dings, and Londoner and the Repub- t
can party were saved. Nobody ever I
new how or whence that pink heart- V
I manna came. The price was ex- r(
rbitant, but that did not matter. Lon
oner paid it with the air of a man Il
ho had ordered melons and was in- 7
igant that the railway company had a
isappointed him in not delivering them h
ie day before. There was not a crack fl
1 the solid black Republican column N

But Field was not through with Lon- V
ner. The colored brethren had to E
ld their ratification meeting to in- fl
orse the Republican nominations and
iore especially to render thanks for r(
le creation of watermelons and to the V
jan who had paid for them out of sea- f
>n. Of course Mr. Londoner was in- h
ited to attend, and when it came his fil
irn to address the meeting the chair- u]
ian, a colored deacon of the church n1
