THOUGHT IT A GHOST. Woman in White 'Gives Hancock Man Bad Scare at Night. There Is In Hancock a man, wha, though old enough to have voted twice for Bryan, has so diminutive a sta ture that one not seeing his face might take him for a small child In long pants. He was returning to his home one one of the streets facing the lake front In West Hancock a few nights ago and had to pass the depot of the Mineral Range railroad to' make a short cut. As he approached the de pot platform he saw something white there. It looked like a ghost to him. He began to tremble all over and tried to hurry past the terrifying object, keeping his eye on it all the time. Suddenly it made a slight move and shivered. "With a loud yell the little fellow started to run up the track, when he caught his foot in a rail and fell. The "ghost" assumed an erect position and began to move towards tho prostrate man, who looking around and seeing the thing In white coming nearer and nearer began to shout lustily for help. Finally a vol.'e close beside him asked, "Did I fright en you. little boy " It didn't sound Ilk the voice of a disembodied, spirit and the frightened one summoned courage enough to get up and take notice. The "ghost" turned out to be a lady In a light colored dress who had ben waiting at the depot for the 11 o'clock South Shoro train.
