DELAWARE'S BIRD LIFE

The income derived from pelts and fur

income was of sufficient size to make

Milton, Del., Nov. 12.—Strange stories j
are being told about the homestead of
James M*. ^ordy, who was hanged for
the murder of his wife on June 11, 1897,
at Georgetown. According to these
Tories the place is haunted.
John P. Morris, the present occupant
0 f thei house, has advertised his farming
utensils for sale, saying that it is not safe
; for his wife and children to stay there at
a nights during liis absence.
Many queer objects are said to have
-1 heen seen at night between 10 and 12
i o'clock. One of them is a large white
dog, which appears nearly as large as ai
j horse. This was seen by Mr. Morris on
a Thursday night. He ran into the house,
j ail (i f or sometime after he says a peculiar
noise was heard on the roof of the dwell
ing. When he had sufficiently recovered
from his fright to make an investigation
he found an object which looked like a
man with four legs, which fell to the
ground with a noise similar to a tree fall
ing. The people in the neighborhood
greatly interested in the stories, and
flocking to tho farm at night to see
the ghosts'.

. . . ,
In Dover Jail there is an educated
tramp—one who, though Ins condition
to-day was brought about by himself, is j
nevertheless improving that condition w
from day to day.
He recently startled not only the other
prisoners, but t.lic turnkey and Sheriff, w
by presenting to them an original essay 1
oh tramps, _
lie is particularily exact in draw ing a
difference between tramps and hoboes.
This fellow was imprisoned for staying - ,i

The teim, hobo was not oiiginaliy
of evil significance. It originated in the
West, when the great tide d humanity d
swept in hat direction; and it was ap

first hopes, were forced to the necessity
of tramnine from community to com-.

is a better sort of man than a tramp, has

there are many old tramps. A hobo will
j not become a tramp if he can help it.
You can hardly save a tramp; he is too \

hoboes, and the tramp problem will be,
to a large extent, solved. Most of the!

That the marriage of John Wesley, the
founder of the Methodist Church, was
a failure is a fact known to the world.
The trouble was with the wife, but to
just what extent she was a tartar was
never fully explained. Barratt's Chapel.
in Kent county, Del!, is the cradle of
Methodism. It was there that Meth
odism took life in America.
An old paper placed on a shelf in Old
Barratt's Chapel years ago was hauled
down at the anniversary celebration two
weeks ago, and in it was a series of let

An II,-fated Craft.
1 After surviving thepciils of a tempest
; ous voyage of ]00 days from Iquique, the
British bark Isle of Erin, Captain Mai*
colrn, nitrate laden, reached the Dela
\ ware Breakwater Tuesday. Late at night
j she started for Philadephia in tow of
the tug Juno. When Marcus Ilook was
reached the tow line broke, and tug
and bark parted company. Before the
tug could get another line to the bark,
the latter was swept ashore. Her bow
struck a pier scad, with the result tliat a
great hole was stove in it.
Through this opening the waters
. poured with the speed of a mill race,
a, id it required the liveliest kind of
work on the part of the crew to keep her
from sinking. After much labor the hole
was patched up, the inflow of water
stopped, and a steady working of the
pumps kept the bark afloat. She will
probably be brought to this city, where
her injury will be repaired.
