Fearsome Tales of Ghosts at the Scene of
the Late Wreck.
The scene of the late wreck at Sum
mit siding is haunted. Every night
at midnight a ghostly visitor appears
and swings a lantern at the switch as
though signaling a train, then fades
away into thin air and disappears.
Sometimes a headless man is seen
walking on the track, but if the figure
approaches a human being it vanishes
in the darkness without leaving any
evidence that it possesses physical ex
istence. The nightwatch on the steam
shovel locLted at that place is said to
be terrified by the apparitions that
disturb his lonely vigils and threatens
to abandon his job, while the day crews
hasten their work in great anxiety to
get away from the feaasome spot be
fore the darkness of night settles
Bold young men living in the neigh
borhood, so the story goes, have sought
to investigate the mysterious shade
and have hidden in the bushes along
the railway for that purpose, but
when the awful thing came solemnly
down the track their blood ran cold,
the marrow froze in their bones and
they incontinently lied.
The imagination of the persons who
report the mysterious visitations doe3
not seem to be very strong, for they
do not include the usual details of
gory locks, or baleful gleaming eyes,
or sulphurous flames, or shining
winding sheets. 2s o one can be found
to admit that he has witnessed the
walking goblin but there are many to
assert that others have been "distill 'd
almost to jelly by the act of fear" as
it has crossed their midnight paths.
The more superstitious of the railroad
men are impressed with the feeling
that some victim of the wreck has
burst his cerements to give ghostly
warning of a repetition of that dread
disaster and they go about their work
in constant apprehension.
One man tells a very different and
less startling tale. lie says that one
evening about quitting time a strange
man was observed loitering on the
high bank by the railway and that
his mysterious actions in the gather
ing gloom caused nmment among the
workmen. One of the party started
toward him and hailed him to dis
cover what he wanted, whereat the
stranger disappeared in the brush and
was seen no more. This circumstance
being reported among the men in the
different construction gangs, the story
grew into a mystery and the unknown
man was transformed into a superna
tural spook. Probably a tramp pros
pecting for a chance to rob a half-emptied
dinner bucket is the only hob
goblin that has haunted Summit
Bremen's Oil Well.
Drilling for oil continues at the fair
ground. Well No. 4 is down to a
depth: of three hundred feet. There
has not been so much trouble exper
ienced with water in the present well
as in the others drilled. Mr. Baney,
who has charge of the drilling, says
that they expect to strike the rock
about Monday night, in which gas was
found several weeks ago, when drill
ing the other well. It is the inten
tion to shoot the well shortly after
striking the rock. Bremen Enquirer.
Interesting Memento.
In the course of business today
there fell into our cash drawer an in
teresting reminder of war times in the
shape of a copper token such as were
commonly issued by merchants in
those days and used for pennies. This
one bears on one side the date 1864
under an Indian's head surrounded by
thirteen stars and on the other side
appears the following inscription: "D.
S. Gould, Dry Goods & Groceries, Opp.
Court House Sqr., Rochester, Ind."
The coin is not money but it is valu
able as a memento of early times.
Umzawee Hop.
The Umzawee dance at the opera
houseFriday night was a complete suc
cess and was one of the handsomest
social events of recent years in Plym
outh. About fifty cpuples participa
ted. The music was furnished by an
orchestra from South Bend and was
greatly enjoyed by a gallery full of
non-dancers in addition to the guests
on the floor. The favors were chrys
anthemums entwined with ribbons in
the club colors old gold and purple.
LinXenhelt Elevator.
The new Linkenholt elevator is now
occupied and the entire business is
transferred to the new quarters near
the L. E. and W. station. The struc
ture is one of the best of Its kind and
is completely equipped in the most
modern style for the handling of grain.
The institution stands among the no
table improvements Plymouth has
made during the current year.
Death ofZach, rtagenbush.
Zachariah H├Ągen bush, formerly of
this city, died of paralysis Thursday
at his late home near Hibbard. The
funeral was held at the Reformed
churchSaturday afternoon. Interment
was at the Stringer cemetery.
The Bonus is Raised and the Piano
People Are Notified to Come.
Thursday the last necessary dol
lar was assured to the Business
Men's association for the purchase of
the old Xovelty plant and notice was
sent to the owners to come on and
complete the transaction. The piano
factory people were also notified to
appear and execute their contract.
If no hitch occurs these transactions
will be finished within a short time
and . the preliminary steps toward
equipping the plant for its new occu
pants will be taken.
The agreement is that they are to
expend $25,000 on the buildings and
machinery, that they are to employ at
least 50 men regularly within the first
year, 75 in the second and 100 in the
third, and that they are to keep 100
men employed for the remainder of
the first five years, for the faithful
performance of which they are to give
a bond equal in amount to the sum
raised by the subscription, $3,000.
The leading muri of the enterprise,
C. F. Thompson, is rated high by the
mercantile agencies and has had large
experience in the manufacture of
pianos. His concern is now making
ten instruments every week and it is
the intention to do a much larger
business here. Mr. Thompson ex
presses an intention to do more than
is required of him by the contract.
Eight residences will be required at
once for the men who will come here,
bringing their families, to inaugurate
the work. Information left at this
office concerning available houses will
be conveyed to the parties interested
without charge to owners.
It is sincerely to be hoped that
nothing will occur to obstruct the
rapid consummation of the plans now
on foot to establish in Plymouth an
enterprise that promises to add so
much to the prosperity of the hand
somest city of its size in the state.
Whatever is left to be done should be
done promptly and cheerfully and
with a spirit of enthusiasm.
Freight Blockade Compels Cessation of
Railway Improvement.
The freight yards of the Pennsyl
vania lines have become so congested
that drastic measures are made nec
essary to clear the blockade. All the
men that can be secured are being
employed and every available locomo
tive is pressed into the freight service.
Passenger trains are delayed in order
that the freight trains may be hur
ried though and the company has or
dered new rolling stock to the amount
of $25,000,000 for the earliest possible
All construction work is suspended
wherever this can be done and the en
gines in that service are engaged in
hauling freight. Five locomotives were
taken off the improvements in this
county, thus relieving five gangs of
men from further construction work
until traffic conditions will admit cf
a resumption.
The situation is not peculiar to the
Pennsylvania company but is the ex
perience of all railways at this time.
Xo such condition has ever before
been known. It is now realized that
in prosperous times the railway
mileage of the country is insufficient
to handle the business, even when
fully equipped, and the factories mak
ing rolling stock, equipment and sup:
plies are not equal to the demands
made upon them. The growth of the
country's business in all lines has no
more amazing proof than that fact.
Patient Endurance.
There is no greater strength ever
manifested on earth than that of
quiet endurance. I have known, and
so have you, those on whom for years
there has not risen a single unclouded
day; those, too, who knew all the
gladness of life, but for whom the sun
was darkened long before it had climb
ed to its meridian heights; whose be
reavements have involved the loss cf
everything that seemed to make life
precious; those who have been render,
ed permanently helplessly by chronic
disease, and can never hope for a pain
less waking hour, or a night of restful
sleep; those whose penury has been ab
solute and entire, with no prospect of
relief. Among these have been the
bravest, strongest souls that I have
ever known; and it has seemed to me
that no emergency of outward action,
not even the foremost of the sacra
mental host In waging the great con
flicts in behalf of the tnith and the
right has equalled theirs, which could
endure without murmuring, and could
render constant thanks to God for the
heavenly manna which has fed them,
for the living waters of which they
have drunk deep draughts, for the
hope, full of immortality, which has
never for a moment forsaken them.
The Restitution.
Wrords of praise and thankfulness
come from people using Rocky Moun
tain Tea. A great spring blessing to
the family. Makes you well, keeps
you well. 35c, J. W. Hess.
Council Does Little Business Paving
Matter Goes Over.
When Burgomaster Jones smote the
table last Wednesday night for the coun
eil tobe in order La wyerLogan stepped
to the front with the first item of public
business, which was the platting into
a subdivision of the Dawes lot recent
ly acquired by Arthur O'Keefe at the
corner of Center and Garro streets.
The matter was duly acted upon and
the O'Keefe subdivision is now an ac
complished fact.
Then appeared D. Frank Redd,
secretary of the Business Men's as
sociation, and represented" to the city
fathers that the valuation of the old
Novelty works property for purposes
of taxation stands on the city's books
just as it was several years ago when
in the heyday of its prosperity, not
withstanding the fact that all the
machinery is gone, the buildings are
dismantled and the value is now less
by many thousands of dollars. Upon
this state of facts it is prayed that
the assessment be corrected so as to
correspond with the conditions on
April 1, and that a corresponding re
reduction be made in the tax now
charged against the property. The
matter was referred to the city at
torney to be reported on at the next
meeting. The thing is of importance
just now because in the purchase of
the property for the piano factory it
is necessary that the tax he paid by
the Business Men's association and
the amount charged is grossly out of
proportion to the real value.
Immediately prior to the commence
ment of the meeting the city com
missioners tiled with the clerk their
report of property affected by the
North Michigan street paving, with
the benefits and damages thereto.
The council desired to act on the re
port at once, but it was found that
the statute stood in the way and the
report had to go over to the next
