front the Sew Fort Heraid.
Lots of people are obliged to follow the
senseless custom of moving in the merry
month of May.
Spooks are not excepted.
There is an old Dutch farmhouse over in
Brooklyn which was built more than 150
yea:* ago. In the course of a checkered ca
reer of a century and a half it has accumu
lated quite a number of ghosts, “white la
dies," wraiths, banshees, eidolons, bogies
And now the spooks have all got to go.
They received notid* to quit on May 1.
They didn’t move then, but they got up and
dusted yesterday, for a gang of workmen
came with crowbars and hammers and pick
axes and began the demolition of the old
THE OLD COTTAGE.
The old Ryci-son cottage is on Adelphi
street, between Park and Flashing avenues.
It was built about the year 1730, and it is
like other old Dutch farmhouse* which we
may occasionally see in Flatbush and in
some of the old Long Island villages. But
they are fast disappearing. Like the old
Indians, they are lining improved off tho
face of the earth.
The Ryerson house was originally one
story high, with a big attic and a long
sloping roof, ending at the front and bock
in a wide piazza extending the full width of
the building. The front and sides of the
house—which is big and spreads over a deal
of ground with its ten rooms—are covered
with heavy, flat pine shingles, two feet long,
half on inch thick, und still sturdy ana
strong, notwithstanding their great age.
The bricks of the chimney came over from
Holland, and arc much smaller than the
modern kind. They are as hard as iron,
and the mortar in which they were laid
turns the steel point of a pickax to break it.
The great beams of the floor and roof and
the studding of the walls are made from
heavy timber, all hewn oy hand from trees
feded in the virgin forests of the New
World. The Dutchmen who cut them prob
ably did so with their eyes wide open for
redskins and with their arquebuses ready to
liang away at any skulking Indians who
might come creeping through the woods
around the settlement.
The old house was not built by a Budden
sick, if he was a Dutchman. There is
sturdy honesty about all the workmanship
that shows tho bouse was put up to stay.
Moreover, the thickness of the wails would
indicate that its owner expected to make his
house his castle in more senses than one,
For there were hostile Indians in those days
and the isolated farmhouse might have to be
suddenly transformed into a fortress to de
fend the settler D orn massacre.
SOMETHING OF ITS BISTORT.
The old Ryerson cottage has been a famil
iar landmark iu Brooklyn for very many
years. The house has a queer history, and
many thrilling stories are told ne'tothe
scenes it has passed through. When it was
built by James Ryerson that family wa<
among the wealthiest of the early Dutch
settlers of Long Island They owned many
acres of land, and their possessions were
touched on one side by the sea and on the
other by the old Flushing road. They
owned a tract a mile wide. The road passed
in front of the farmhouse, which stood on a
hill sloping gently on the other side toward
the river. There'was a lovely view from
the house. It was surrounded by a flower
garden with hollyhocks and tulips, and there
was a famous well of sweet ana cool water
at the side of the house.
The mansion was the residence of several
generations of Ryeisons, and compara
tively early in its history was the scene of
the suicide of a farm hand, who died for the
love of a pretty milkmaid. His ghost is
probably the death of the little company of
spirits which have since gathered about the

began its many vicissitudes of fortune.
Even then it was known as a haunted
place, the boss ghost being a choleric, purse
proud old Dutchman, who had dropped dead
of apoplexy in a fit of rags while “cussing”
a son who hid married “beneath” him, tee

“TAM O’ SHANTER.”
About sixty years ago the place fell into
the hands of V Scotchman, who turned it
into a tavern and called it the “Tam o’
Shanter.” It deserved its uncanny name,
for it became the resort of gamblers and the
wildest blades of the day. Two or three
drunken murders added to the ghosts who
tenanted the old house. Then an English
man succeeded to the propertv. He also
kept it as a sporting resort. Many of its
patrons were New Yorkers, who crossed the
East river in rowboats.
The reputation of tho old house went from

ns a very tough resort. An Irishman named
O'Reilly ran it about forty years ago as a
low tavern. His liquor bred dissension
among his patrons, and they say that two

Original of the “Walter Ridgely” Hoax.
From the Chicago Sews.
The story of the Waiter Ridgely hoax is
senselassly funnv. Some time ago there
appeared in one of the New York dailies a
droll story of how certain friends of Tom
Ochiltree concluded to surprise him by in
troducing at the Hoffman House a man who
could out-lie even the I exas romancer. Ihe
person they introduced, so the story went,
was a lank Arkansas man. This Arkansas
man said that he bad met an old friend of
his named Walter Ridgely. and then re
lated hi* anecdote. He said that *> alter
was a deaeou of the Methodist church at
Texarkana and Secretary of the 5 oung
Men’s Christian Association. He was ( n:
of the meekest and most long-suffering men
in Arkansas. One flay Ridgely was cross
ing a river; a drummer was on the fen"'•
The drummer got into an argument with
the ferryman and ngreed to leave the mat
ter to Ridgely. Ridgely accepted the posi
tion of mediator and ‘dually, after thinking
the matter over, shot both the disputants
dead. He thought that was the best way to
settle the question. Murphy, the ferryman,
had two brothel*. After the double funeral
of the principals, at which Ridgely officiated,
these surviving brothei* stepped out of the
cemetery and hid in the road. Ridgely ap
proached on his old roan mare, singing
“Over the Shining River;” both meu tired
at Ridgely, who dropped; both brother* ran
up; they thought him dead. Just as they
bent over him he raised up, winked at each,
and shot both their beads off. He mounted
the old roan mare and trotted awav singing.
Then the Chicago Tribune took the matter
up seriously, and. after making the deacon
kill three more Murphys, raised $383 50 to
purchase a testimonial lor “Walter Ridgely,
the drummer's friend.”
