WHAT DID I SEE ?
A Strange Story of a Mysterious Visitor. The Experience of a Traveler "Willie In Italy. I was sitting in one of those little pro jecting windows which one so .often sees in Rome and other Italian cities. A perfect network of vines clambered about it. and the moonlight made black patterns of them on the floor as the slight wind blew them across the window. The hour was quite late. 1 could not hear the sound of any living thing. 1 remembered, as I listened. The world seemed to have gone to sleep. 1 had stayed up to smoke another cigar after the friends who had spent the evening with me had gone away. _ Suddenly a thought of John Grayle came into my mind. John and I had been the best of friends in gone-by days.. We had been students together, and in after-school life we had kept up the friendship student life had begun. Of all my friends I counted John Grayle tirst 1 looked forward to my meeting with him as one of the pleasantest events of my return. ■_, .Jy ; A strange sensation came over me. It was very much the same feeling as that we have when we feel that some one is looking at us, and look up to meet a person's eyes. It seemed to me that John was near me. I could feel his presence; ....... Suddenly the houses faded out of sight, and the hills were swallowed up in the white sea of moonlight. Before me rose a vapor that was strangely luminous. It floated up and about my window, and there slowly resolved itself into a shape like that of a person, It was like a shadow growing out of a shadow— a shadow condensing and taking on the look of substance. yet remain ing all the time a shadow. For a moment I was not frightened, and for a moment I was frightened, and I shut mv eyes to keep out the strange sight, but; as if fascinated by what 1 had seen, I opened them again and saw — John Grayle! The features of the man 1 — or the shadow — had all the distinctness of life. Even the garments he wore were so plainly outlined against the moonlight, acting as a background, that I could describe them afterward, I saw everything in that one brief moment. "John!" I cried, "what does this mean?'' "I have come to tell you to look in the hollow oak at Densmere, " I heard a voice make answer. "There you will find proofs of who has done this." Then the shadow lifted a shadowy hand and pointed to a gaping wound in his breast, from which the shadow garment fell away that I might see what he called my attention to. Then there was a sound like the rustling of a wind among the corn, and the figure seemed to dissolve before my eyes.. 1 saw it one moment faint, vague, shadowy, and the next it was gone. Had I been dreaming? I shook myself. I got up and walked about the room. 1 satisfied myself that I was as wide awake as ever I was in my life. If I had not been dreaming, what was it I had seen? A month later I sailed for America. The first person to meet me when I stepped ashore was Carl Thiel, an old artist friend. "Have you heard that terrible story about John Grayle's murder?" he asked, as we walked up the street together. . "John Grayle's murder?" 1 cried. "Mv God, man, you don't mean to say that it is true that John is dead?" . "Yes, 1 do," he answered. My memory flew back to that moonlit night in Rome, and what I had seen there. "Let me ask you a question before you tel! me anything more about it," I said. "Was he killed on the 31st of June, and did it happen at Densmere?" "Yes." he answered. "They wrote to yon about it, I see. I thought perhaps you might not have heard of it." "I had never heard a word about it from any one but you,*" I answered, "unless I heard it from John Grayle himself." Tnen I told him what I had seen. He heard my story with a grave, half-frightened look. "Percy," he said, when I had finished, "shall we go up to Densmere to-morrow? I want to take a look for the "hollow oak' your spirit visitor told you about; If John Gravle came to you _ after death, and he certainly was killed on the day; when you saw him, why should there not be Some reason for us to believe that the message he gave you meant something?" On the morrow we went up to Densmere, where John Grayle had been spending a few days when he was murdered by some unknown person— no clew had ever been obtained to the murderer. . * The affair was enshrouded iii a deep mystery. Mr. Grosvenor. the owner of the place, gave us a cordial welcome. ..We were .so impatient to find out the truth or falsity of our clew, if clew it could be called, that we would not sit down until after we had satis fied our curiosity. I told my story, and why we were there. "I don't understand it," he said, with a puzzled look on his face. "It is certainly a strange story, and it sounds like an im probable one. Ido not think you will find your "hollow oak,' for I have never seen one on the place, but there is no harm in looking. Let us begin the search at once. I am actually getting excited over the mat ter myself, though I have absolutely no faith whatever in ghosts and spiritual manifesta tions." '----. We set out in our search. The beeches and hemlocks grew thick on either side of the avenue, but no oak trees. "I am afraid your ghost was drawing on his imagination when he told you of an oak tree at Densmere," said Mr. Gros venor. . - "Isn't that an oak leaf?" asked Thiel, stooping and picking up a leaf from the path. Sure enough it was. Looking up we saw a gnarled, crooked limb projecting over our heads from a thicket of young bushes. The top of the tree had been broken off rears before, ami only this one branch remained. 1 dashed into the thicket . I saw before me the body of an oak tree, and about four feet from the ground there was a hole large enough for the insertion of a man's arm. I never was more excited in my life. 1 felt as if all things depended upon the re sult of my search in the cavity *of that hollow tree. I thrust my arm into the aperture and felt my fingers come in contact with something that sent a shiver through hie from head to foot I drew out a knii'e, about whose end was wrapped a bloody paper. I held these things out •_ for my friend to see. and neither of us spoke a word, but I know our faces were very white. I unrolled ink paper from about the blade of the knife. 1 read: "John Gravle, Esq.— Dear Sir: Happen ing to hear that you were stopping at Dens mere. I take the liberty of addressing you and asking a person calling himself Man uel Garcia is there also. If he is, beware of him. He is an imposter. He is a gam bler and a villain, and would not for a mo ment be tolerated in the society into which he has thrust himself if his true character were known. If you have any doubts of the truth of what I tell you, write to Sebas tian Garcia, 27 Rue de Annuncion, New Orleans, and lie will tell you that this man, who has borrowed an old and honorable name. Is a thief, a liar and a coward, who would no sootier show his face in "Sew Orleans than he would dare to enter a lion's den. The latter place would be the safer of the two. I have kept track of this man. whose true name is Gonzalo Duprez, for years, and he cannot escape me. I will follow him to the grave. Ask him if he remembers Honore. of the old house by the river, and tell him that she is on his ..track still. Watch him when you tell him this, and see if he does not turn pale." . The letter bore no signature. I gave it to my friends to read. They read it and then Grosvenor said: "I think 1 see how it must have been. John Grayle had been to the village for let ters, and was returning, when he was mur dered. That much we know. He probably received this letter with others we found upon his body. Probably he met Garcia, or him who called himself: so, and charged him with being an impostor. There had been an ill-feeling between the two .for sometime, for Garcia sought to . supplant Grayle in the regards of Miss Booth, to whom Grayle was engaged. . To save him- Belf from detection and- exposure, the man killed Grayle, secured the letter, and. with tho foolishness characteristic of criminals in many instances, concealed it with the knife tHE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE. SATURDAY MORNING; DECEMBER 4, 1886 -SIXTEEN PAGES. in the hollow tree. It is strange, but not one of us ever suspected Garcia or Duprez; strange indeed,* for we knew there had been ill-feelings between them."' "Where is Garcia or Duprez now?" asked Thiel. "1 do hot know," answered Grosvenor. •'I think we can get track of him, however. At any rate we will try." We set a detective to work. On the fourth day he telegraphed to us from a little town on Lake Erie: "I think I have the man you want Come at once." We went We found our detective wait ing at tbe station for us. "You have never seen him, but Thiel has," he said to me. "Suppose you go to the hotel at once. I will take Thiel there by a back street, and he can take a look at the man himself unseen. If he identifies" him I will get an officer . and have him ar rested at once. We must not excite his suspicions, or he will give us the slip. He looks like an ugly man to deal with." We acted on the detective's advice. I saw Thtel come into the hall and take a look at the dark-faced man on the veranda, who looked at me half suspiciously as I came up the steps. I saw the detective go away presently, ard pretty soon I saw him come back with a man whom I felt sure to be an officer. 1 was right. This man came out on tbe veranda and laid his hand on the shoulder of the man sitting there. The other started to his feet, frightened at once, and faced the officer. "What do you want with me?" he asked. "I arrest you for . murder," the officer answered. .. "Don't try to get away, for you can't," and he held the muzzle of a re volver threatin -ly before the ghastly face of his prisoner. _ "What murder? Whose murder? Are you mad, man? Do I look like a mur derer?" "For the murder of John Grayle," I said. "We have the proofs of it in our possession. We found them in the hollow oak at Dens mere. John Grayle came . to me, after death, and told me where to find them." The Spanish blood in the man's veins made him superstitious, and the idea of a ghostly witness against him frightened the truth from bim. When he was told what 1 had seen, and how we came to find the knife with which he had slain his victim, be made a full confession. He died in prison shortly afterward, and to the last he asserted that every night the ghost of John Grayle visited his cell. There, you have my story. If it was not a ghost, what did I see? ; *;-. . THE i OK Eft CLUB, With tlie Account of an Interesting little Game. New Tork Times. It was already too late to buy bear***, and the chairman was about to adjourn the meeting in dispair when a happy idea occurred to Mr. Williams. He suggested that paper chips should be issued by Rev. Thankful Smith, who was banking as usual, and to prevent any misunderstanding each should bear his initials. This brilliant plan was at once put into execution. Prof. Brick cut three pages from the treasurer's ledger, and divided them into frag ments the shape and size of a post age stamp. . Mr. Williams wrote upon each with pencil 10, 25. 50 or 1, to indicate it was a quarter, dime, half or dollar, and the banker, after carefully counting them, embellished each with his initials and a complicated flourish, supposed to be preventive of forgery. These legal tenders were duly issued jin exchange for money, and the game began. - The good fortuue which attended Mr. Williams in war seemed still to cling to him in the gentler moments of peace, for he won four jack pots in succession and garnered every chip on the table. The banker then devoted a few minutes to issuing a fresh supply.and in preparing them had, as before, Mr. Will iams' cheerful assistance. The game was then resumed with great vigor, and the Rev. Thankful Smith began to recuperate, winning three consecutive pots, and the only drawback to his fortune was that he never could get Mr, Williams in. Pres ently Mr. Williams borrowed Mr. Whiffles lead pencil, which had a rubber cap to it, and said he would go down stairs and offer the landlord a note for thirty days in ex change for the varnished chips. He was absent four or five minutes and returned to say that the matter was settled and that the landlord had promised to Surrender the chips next week. Then Mr. Williams plunged anew into the game and apparently lost £11 in as many minutes. Then he yawned and said his recent athletic affair had overheated him. and he thought he would cash in aud go home. As it was sup posed he was behind the game, no one offered objections, and the Rev. Thankful Smith received his stock. To every one's surprise Mr. Williams was still considerably ahead, having thirty-four chips bearing this legend: * # : i. : ts : * ......* each of which represented 81. The rever end gentleman was aghast, but examina tion showed his signature was genuine, so he passed over the money with a sigh, and Mr. Williams left the room. A silence pre vailed for a few moment's, and then Cyan ide Whiffles desired to know the total value of the chips issued by the bank. Rev. Thankful Smith stated they amounted in all to $42, or 57 to each . member. Prof. Brick then remarked that there was a curious mathematical phenomenon lying around. Mr. Williams had just cashed in $85. and he him self bad $9.50. which alone made more than the sum the bank had named. A rapid investigation followed. Elder Jubilee Anderson had $7.25, Mr. Whiffles had SS, Gus Johnson had 511 and Rev. Thankful Smith himself had 514.75. which "made a total of 555. 50, including _ the chips just cashed by Mr. Williams. Careful examina tion of each chip showed no counterfeit, and Re****. Thankful Smith's eyes suddenly lighted on .Mr. Whiffles' lead pencil with the rubber tip, which Mr. Williams had returned. "Didjer loaned him dat scribbler?" he yelled. Mr. Whiffles was scared half to death, but admitted that Mr. Williams had been using his pencil. The Rev. Thankful Smith then took the pencil. tried the erasive [lowers of the rubber, and demonstrated that a dime chip could be transferred into a dollar chip with an ease which was dis heartening. Then he leaned backward, and said impressively: ■"Xiggahs. I'se been banken' in pokah offen on fer tliutty years, "a 1 thought I knowed most of the bunko kinks in cashin' in "n settlin' up, but de Angel Gabe hisseif woulder_got_ skint in dis club outen de substance on penny liinmick.

Washington Critic. §f?6 The crowd was talking on the subject of traveling on passes, cheap rates, etc. ... "Well," remarked Maj. Stofali, when there came a lull, "1 went from Washing ton clear to San Francisco once for noth ing." "The walking must have been good that year," suggested Roberts. "I rode all the way in a Pullman," said the major, with a smile. _. "Did you have a pass?" asked Chambers. "No pass." "You knew all the conductors, perhaps,"' said Leachman. "Didn't know a soul," replied the. major, lighting an O. P. cigar. "Then how in thunder did you make it?" asked Knott, who was anxious to get a low rate West. .-*. "Easiest thing in the world." responded the major, coolly. I had a sweetheart in Frisco, and 1 went out to marry her. When I got there. I found she had already mar ried another fellow, and if you don't call that going to San Francisco for nothing, you may have this $15 suit I've got on, for 10 cents, half cash and the balance at ninety days." i STILLWATER NEWS.
