THE "ROCK ISLAND AllGUS, SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 1889.
THE GIIAIST 0' GHAIRLEE.
TIm Imiibwt I am about to relate occurred
to mysHlf when on visit to an old house far
In the wil.ts of Rnsslilre. ' Hcntland la the

I Mi autumn I waa invited by my dear old
friend, tlte Laird o' Ohairloe, to make one of a
hooting party amwnbllng there. 8 port la
good there, if anywhere; and, moreover, the
laird owned a covey of pretty daughter, who
would be mire to make thing lively and
I arrived, then, at Ghairlee station full of
nor and prtreil for enjoyment I brought
with me my guna and my belvved violin,
without which I never travel
Uhairlee ttaslf is a curious old house; the
passages run about it In an extremely com
plicated fashion, up one etep to a room, down
two steps into it, and so on.' The hall la a
portion of the old tower; the walla of trn
mmian tlilcknrwa. Many additions have been
made by dilTHrent lairds, long since gathered
to their f athors.
I did t 4 we all this the nlch of my ar
rival In sooth, II waa so dark that I could
distinguish very llttlu as tlte dog cart spun
Up tho avenue; but I did nntlt-e Uie black
aiam ofi my kft as we turned a very sharp
comer round a blork of buildings, ami on my
right, a sullen roar aa if angry watxr boiled
over in a torrent to dash uoii rocks In the
dark depths, fur, far Ulw.
The next nnmMMit we drew tip before the
door, Wrd aud studdt-d with great Iron
nails. Light was pouring from the hall, aud
the laird stmd In the doorway surrounded
by a bowling Uvlyguard of terriers.
Whist, dogs! tome In, laddie!
Ami my old friend gathered me Into bis an
cestral ball with highland hospitality. Wa
passed up a low stairway, aud aoroaa a thick
ly raritd corridor furnWbed with Strang
pieces of antique workmanship frowning
cabinets and carved chairs from ehli h uncan
ny faces leenoi in the firelight. The drawing
room wb at the far end and there were again
two or three sUi leading to it aloue. By
the side of these steps and against the wall
stood a flue old prep of niartiiietrie, quaint
ly inlaid and ued, as I afterward learned,
for the stowing away of od.ls and cuds, of
nothing and all things. It was here that my
violin sism found a place, and I laid it, in ita
modem emliroiered case, by the side of a
quaint old lute aliout which was twbited a
faded, moth eaten ribbon.
This," said the laird's pretty daughter,
touching it reverently, "has a history. We
kenp it herepretty as It la because none of
us like to look on If But all this be
longs elnewhi-re In my story.
Import had not eiaggcrated the charms of
the old laird's daughters. Four of them be
bad the yomigmt, a charming child the
Ideal, already appropriated. But there re
mained the adorable second and the exquisite
third, and after a day of painful uncertainty
I fell before the first of these two, who was
called by the tuneful nauie of Mavis, and
who had a musical fever akin to my own.
Tofcotber we trilled and tumiued and turned
leaves awl played love songs and madrigals,
M-enadtw aud sonatas, and when we did not
play w talked musiu, and when we did not
talk music, we talked-ah well I suffice It to
ay that the days hurried by and the weeks
flew after them and I had tieen a guest at
Ubairiee nigh on to a aacoud uionth, and my
heart belonged to Mavis.
The cream of the shooting was over and
the party much diminished. Due or two men
ouly remained beside myself, and a pretty
young woman neighUir of the laird's who
bad onnefor a two weeks' visit. We were
gathered in the drawing room and souieMdy
asked for music. I went out to the Are
lighted hall to the old rnbiuet b get my
violin, and Mavis went with mo. We linger
ed there, alone, for a moment Just for the
sake of lingering. It was then Maris spoke
about the lute. I took it in my hands and,
aa I did so, a thin, faraway wail of melody
seemed to sweep ast us and lose lUelf in the
dimness beyond the glow of the firelight.
"What was thatr I asked, sharply. Then,
seeing that Mavis only trembled in reply, I
addeil, quickly: "I must hove Jarred tb old
"Ilit it down." said Mavis; "it la uncanny.
We never touch it. Jt belonged to the Obaist
"To the ghaistr" cried I, Inughlng-perhapa
not altogether heartily for though I cer
tainly uid not believe in ghosts, there bad
been something in that wailing strain to set
one's nerves on a quiver; "you Mcotch uusties,
forsooth, must still Mieve lu your ghaistal
There was never a decent bluiiled Highland
body without a ghaut in bis castlel You
must introduce me some day to yours !" And
so, laughing and teasing her to bring back
the rosea to her cheeks, if, indeed, I could, I
led her agaiu to the drawing room, where a
merry crowd sej an hour or two of my be-lovedmie-
with my dear violin soon chased
the 7Zait o' (ihairlee from my thought.

The large corridor was illuminated by a
lamp. A smaller passage led away from It,
and my room opeued into this aeage now
In profound chirk news. There were candle
sticks on a table at the head of the flight of
steps, but after I found out the way to my
rooms aud had grown accustomed to It, I
rarely itoped to light one. To-uight I made
no exception to this custom, and went swing
ing down the vMtge toward my door.
I bad found it, and was ahout to turn the
handle wbeu I saw Urfore me, a few feat dis
tant, a man crouching, with bis ear chssi
against the wall level with my door. He
slowly turned bis head and stared straight at
ma. A more evil expression I bail never en
countered, so full waa It of threatening bate
and devilish purpose.
I rtood fascinated, watching the man.
Presently, with hand outspread feeling along
the wall, he began creeping toward me; at
the same moment the dismal howling of a
dog, apparently in one of the rooms, became
audible. This sound and the action on bis
part seemed to release my faculties. I dashed
kt him made a grab at bis coat struck ths
wall; the man was gone I
I stood stupidly; the passage was dark as
ltcb. Could he have slipped aside, aud be
Waiting to strike?
Then then, with a revulsion that sent my
lood curdling back to my heart, it shot
How did I sea him, lieing In the vi ark!
That be was there for no good was suffl
iently demonstrated ; but how could I have
sen hlmf I experienced a curious sensation
as It broke upon me that the man I bad be
held was not included In the census of this
planet. I felt a tingling lu my limbs and a
buxxliig in my ears. The sensation was
physical only mentally, I may say there
waa a complete and instant blank.
Aa the shock mssed over I pulled myself to
gether ami retraced my steps down the pas
sage and Into the drawing room. It seemed
strange, that lighted room and the common
My step had been almost noiseless on the
thick oarjiet of the corridor, and no one bad
notloed my approach. I stood, perhaps, for
fly minutes in the doorway, shadowed by a
Portiere, anil gradually the perfectly natural
aod human Tpresaion of the room and the
people, chatting pleasantly, with the clear
Inmplight full upon their familiar faces, so
bered my excited senses, and I began to feel
thai I bad come very near making myself
supremely ridiculous. What I saw-or rather
what I now Ivlieved I had fancied I saw
was one of those strange optical illusions,
born of mental exaltation, and taking, aa la
usually the case, a most unexpected and un
familiar form. I had been carried away by
tba music by th resence and close sym
pathy of the girl I deeply loved and I had
sen no heaven born vim on but something
directly opixwed to every image which, just
then, should havs possessed my mental vision.
I bad asen a stealthy, creeping, lurking, mur
daroua yes I murderous that ia what was
written In every line of the evil face and
vouching form murder!
I shuddered from head to foot.
Then I puDed myself together again, and
thankful that my return to the drawing room
bad been unobserved, I determined to depart
aa quietly as I bad come. This I managed
ucceasf ully, and lighting a candle this time
at the head of the staircase, I entered the
passage leading to my room and reached it In
my usual prosaic manner. Although now
thoroughly convinced that I had been the
victim of a temporary hallucination, I felt by
no means comfortable. My new accomplish
ment was not an agreeable one, and my
nerves were badly shaken.
"Fool!" I apostrophised myself politely,
and glad, after all, that I had not absolutely
appeared one In the eyes of Mavis and ber
family, I began to undress. First, however,
I searched my sleeping and dressing rooms
thoroughly and found them quite free frotn
the presence of ray 111 looking friend of the
passage. Th dressing room waa a queer
little place one of the few rooms of the
tower that bail stood the ravages of time and
the only one in the hee that had not been,
from laird to laird, added to and improved
upon. It was curious enough, and some of ita
old worm' eaten oak bad stood since the ear

I went to bed aud very soon, it seemed to
me, I fell asleep. Very soon, too, it seemed
to me, I was awakened by I know not
I sat up in lied and listened Intently, thor
For several minutes I beard ' nothing.
Then the dismal howling of a dog came to
me, as if from tho adjoining room and yet
it bad a smothered sound as if, although near
mo, ita bowls were being stifle.!. 8uddenly
this sound ceased, and then came a stealthy,
creeping sound, and I saw a crouching figure
against my wsll the same figure, the same
evil face now turned straight toward me, the
same murderous expression all, as it hail.
Just as suddenly, apeared in the halL
And my room was in erfect darkness.
But though the man continued to gase
straight into my eyes he moved from, not
toward, me slowly and stealthily until he
reached the door leading into the dressing
room, and through this he disappeared.
With one hound 1 followed him. 1 forgot
the deadly fear that had seized upon me at
sight of this monster, as I believed him, of
my ImngiiiHtion. I rushed after him and
would have thrown myself upon him in
another instant, hud not something rooted
me to the threshold powerless. In vaiu I
endeavored to move hand or limb, in vain I
attempted to cry aloud wheu I found myself
incapable of motion I stood as if chained
gagged helpless sieechless. And liefore
me crept the man, always skulking along the
Jiow my eyes traveled beyond him to divine
his destination, and there before the mirror
of the old drew-ing table, with her bonny
brown hair all unbound and ber little, white
hare feet, showing beneath her loose night
robe, and in her hands the old lute with a
pole ribbou wound alxmt it, there oh, my
Uod! stood Mavis! Kneeling beside her was
an old waitiug woman. Even in my speech
less agony 1 knew I paused, trying to puu-e
her, but she was some oue I could not remem
ber to have seen about Uhairlee. Sbestroked
and kissed her lady's hand ray lady's hand
and seemed to say some soothing word, but
though I saw her I ij moved, try as I would
I could hear no sounds.
I struggled frantically for the power to cry
aloud, but my tongue was held by some ter
rible force I could neither save nor worn my
darling of that ghastly shadow that is creee
ing nearer, ever uearerl
Without a sound noiseless as fate merci
ls leath giving the figure rose from ita
crouching posture and stood behind the two
women. With tome hideous gleaming weap
ou uplifted to strike, with bis evil face dis
torted by the passion and intent to kill re
flected in aK its ghastly horror in the long,
dim gloss, into which my jioor, ltt Mavis
stared as if already stricken, the man stood
for an instant enjoying in anticl;iation this
dark and bloody deed. Then there waa a sud
den flash as the thing he carried descended
a dull, crushing blow, and at lust too lata
my voice came to me.
One shriek that should have rallied long
forgotten laird to the defense and then un-Cons-iousiMa.
When I opened my eyes, Mavis, my own
Mavis, stood beside me. Then I saw the
kindly face of the laird.
After a while, I told my story. Then he
Many years ago there was a Laird of
Ghairlee who bad a cruel, wicked brother.
This brother plotted to overthrow all who
stood in Ins way, but the laird was too
strong for him and found bun out for a
wicked, murdorous dog; so the gates of
Uhairlee were closed Uh biiu. But though
he said nothing Ik) waited until the laird u
away, and theu be stole into the little passage
leading to the tower rooms and hid there,
and tout nifht he inurdureii the laird's young
urine wnen none was Willi in call but the
feeble old serving woman.
'Her picture bangs iwlow, poor leddy,"
added the laird. "Mavis ia enough like her to
l herself! But you should have told us of
the warning in the passage, laddie, and I my
self should have minded what lihjfct it was,
and told you to sleep with Itagakl. For who
passse the night In the tower rooms on the
ithof ( tctolier, must aye see the Uhaist o'

Must now involves new duties and resoon
sibilities upon the council tbtt should not
be lost sight of or ignored. Unquestion
ably the most exacting and important of
these Is a means of affording proper pro
tection to human life, and removing as
far as it lies within the province of the
municipal body all obstacles in the way
of safely. This the council can do in a
manner heretofore suggested and urged
by the Akous, and without onlailing any
ex pense whatever upon tbi city. The
providing of gates at the railroad
crossings at the foot of Twenty
fourth street and EighU'enth street,
the former being the always dangerous
place at the approach to the hlough
bridge, where the numerous tracks of the
C, U. I. & P. and C. B. A Q are to lie
crossed, the latter on First avenue, where
the C, B. & Q. and R. I. .c P. must be
crossed in goiog to, or coming from the
ferry. The council can fro vide these
necessary precautions and improvements
by simply ordering thrm. Gates such as
have recently been put in by the C, R.
I. & P. at several of tho street internee
lions in Davenport in conformity with the
council's orders, might readily be secured
here at the two dangerous plnces above
named, and the council should not delay
its action thereon until some future time,
but order them next Monday night. By
so doiDg. the TwentysfourtL street cross
ing would be thoroughly protected by the
time the street cars get 1 1 running to
Davenport this fall.
Another apparent need in Rock Island
now Is increased police facilities. The
inference is not intended by this assertion
that the present force is no, sufficient as
far as efficiency is concerned, but it is not
large enough at least the tight patrol ia
not. It is a fact that the ret ident portion
of this city, where are located some of
our largest houses and wealthiest citizens,
are without police protection at
all during the hours o' the night
when the busy ' bnrglar is abroad.
The patrolmen in the business district of
the Fourth and Fifth wards are supposed
to cover the adjacent resi lent portions
and the consequence is tint neither the
business or resident sections can receive
the proper attention witbo.it the neglect
of the other. The counc.l should ap
point two additional policmen one to
cover the resident part of town, from
say Fifteenth street to Twentieth, and
back of Fourth avenue, and the other from
Twentieth to the eastern li nits and back
of Sixth avenue. This would leave the
present patrolmen free to tttend strictly
to the business bouses, depots, etc., on
other respective beats.
The council should not i.eglect the in
terests of the fire, departme it in making
other necessary improvements. The
Argus does not urge imprt vements such
as are not permanent and s irhs the city
cannot control. But an eli ctric alarm of
the sort that has been demanded on nu
merous occasions in the na'ure of a per
manent and enduring necessity. Oiice
put in it is there to stay, and will
be the first step toward proper organize
lion and discipline in the fire department,
which is absolutely necessary in a grow
ing city. Let the counc 1 prepare for
this and make up ita mind that it is an
inevitable improvement, aid let ita en

tie with that end in view. Meanwhile

TIIR JOLLY OLD MARINER.
A (oily old mariner sailing the sea.
Was roaring a solo snd thus thundered he.
"Our ship is as bold as sn eagle on wing.
And she csrries a cargo that's tit for a king;
A cargo that's welcome to peasant or pope.
Our ship she is laden with IVORY SOAP.
" I've plowed all the oceans to every port.
To visit all nations snd climes is my sport ;
We carry our goods to the ends of the world.
Our trade is announced on our banner unfurled ;
See ! blazoned on pennant from top-mast and rope :
Wc bring to all people the Ivory Soap.'
Prom Procter & Gamble, my lads, do you mind 1
We carry a blessing to gladden mankind;
For dirt is a foe to the body and soul.
And soap must precede e'en the gospel's control ;
Then hurrah I hip hurrah ! for philanthropy's hope.
Hurrah for the advent of Ivory Soap.
" Its bsrs, like the truth, or a life-saving boat,
Ever rise to the top and triumphantly float;
As the foam on the wind-fretted billow 'tia light,
Aa the elephant'a tusk it is glossy and white;
The poets all praise it in measure and trope.
The ocean is thundering 1V0KY SOAP."
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many whitetoaps, each represented to be-" just as good as the 'Ivory';"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upori getting it.
