SPOOKS AT PLAY.
The St Louis Custom House Haunted
by Unearthly Visitors.
From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
For some time past it has been whispered
around the custom house building that
strange sights have been seen at various
times and that strange noises were fre
quently beard during the still hours of
night. No one around the building is su
perstitious enough to believe in ghosts, and
for this reason each one -who saw or heard
anything out of the usual order, accounted
for it as being only a freak of his own
nnagination, and consequently said nothing
about the occurrence. If any one had
doubts or superstitious dreads they were
kept to themselves, until a few days ago one
of the janitors refused to go up in the freight
elevator during the night, because, as he ex
pressed it, “the doumed thing was full of
b, This remark so forcibly expressed an
opinion which had already been formed by
several others that they commenced com
paring notes, and the fact was developed
that enough strange occurrences had taken
place in the building to justify the belief
that some mysterious influence had been at
work. It seems that since the sad suicide a
tew months ago, in which the unfortunate
victim cast himself headlong from the third
story through the open elevator shaft, all
employes around the building havo had an
undisguised aversion to going about the ele
vator. No amount of labor has been able
t 0 remove the blood-stains from the floor of
tbo elevator, and a careful scrubbing only
makes them show up plainer than before. This
fact alone is enough to arouse a feeling of
superstitious awe among those whose duties
caused them to go up or down on the eleva
tor alone during the night.
THE ELEVATOR’S MOVING.
But this was not all. For several weeks
past the elevator has been acting in a
strange, mysterious manner. Several times
it has started of its own accord and moved
slowly up or down, as if guided by some un
seen hand. The engineers around the build
ing attributed this to some defects in the
machinery, and it has been worked on sev
eral times but without avail, it continues to
move and quiver at times in spite of all their
The peculiar action of the elevator was
only a forerunner to more startling mani
festations which were soon to occur. A few
nights ago Mr. Barney McSorley, who has
long been a watchman around the building,
was walking about on the third floor. It
was nearly midnight, the hall was dimly
lighted, and a solemn stillness reigned over
the whole building. Suddenly a strange
noise drew the watchman toward the door
of the fated elevator. He looked through
the open wire work and saw that all was
dark and quiet within the shaft. The eleva
tor was not in use and had been run down
to the basement floor just as it had on the
night when the suicide occurred. The
watchman thought he must have been mis
taken about the noise, and was about to turn
and go away when the strange sound startled
him again, and this time it seemed so
dose and so unearthly wild that there could
be no further doubt about the noise. Bar
ney is no cowan i, but he says that on this
occasion he was badly scared. The sound
evidently came from the elevator shaft, and
half opening the door he cautiously put his
head inside and quickly glanced around.
The sight that met his view was enough to
unnerve the bravest man, and Barney
said he felt each hair rise and stand on end.
, , A BIG BLACK CAT.
Just opposite the doorway he beheld a
pair of glaring eyeballs moving about in
the darkness, and just as he was about to
close the door with a slam a huge black cat
i' unified toward him and fell buck into the
atcrnvav. The watchman could hear the
dtifl; heavy thud, and then came a hollow,
dismal groan, as if made by some creature
in mortal agony. Barney rushed away from
the elevator and down flight after flight of
Stairs until the basement floor was reached.
He hastened to the elevator, expecting to
find the dead body of the great black cat
which he had seen, but, strange to say, he
saw nothing there, not even a mark to
show' that anything had fallen from the
great height above. The shaft was quiet
aud deserted, and only the ghastly blood
stain Tin the floor seemed to show with more
than usual clearness under the dim light of
the watchman's lamp. Barney was too bad
ly frightened to recover for some minutes,
tut not being a believer in ghosts he finally
reasoned himself into thinking that he must
have lieen mistaken, and kept his secret to
himself until others began talking about
what they had heard and seen. One or two
rights after this occurrence had taken
place. Bill Curtis, one of the assistant engi
neers in the basement of the building, went
to the elevator about midnight for some pur
THROWING OLD SHOES.
It was idle, as is always the case at this
hour of the night, and when Curtis looked
inside there was nothing to be seen but the
dark, empty shaft, extending away up to
the third floor. As he stood looking up,
something came falling down the shaft,
striking at his feet. He picked it up and
saw that it was an old shoe, which exactly
matclnd the one shoe which the suicide had
on when liis body was discovered at the foot
of the shaft. Curtis is not a believer in
ghosts himself, but he was at a loss to ac
count for the falling shoe. He showed it to
several persons around the engine rooms,
and put it away for safe keening, but on
looking for it again it had disappeared.
The engineers have been annoyed greatly
during the period of these strange visita
tions hy unnatural creaking about the ma
chinery, and weird, unearthly sounds at in
tervals during the night. The skeptical
ones attribute all this to defects in machin
ery, to air escaping from the elevator
pipes, and to various other similar causes,
out most of the night employes are of the
opinion that some unnatural power has been
at Work. One or two persons even claim
that they have seen shadowy forms flitting
rround through the dimly-lighted hallway
of the third story, where agonizing groans
are often heard.
It was just at the foot of the flight of
stairs leading from the hallway of the third
story to the dome that a painter fell from a

Ifflmurod in a Prlaon Coll and Her
Babe Killed Before Her Eyes.
A dispatch from Vaasar, Micb., to the
Cincinnati Enquirer says: Mrs. Brooks,
wnfc of a prominent fanner at Juniata, near
ber8 ' has arrived home, after an absence of
s "tal months, and tells a remarkable story
' *?er imprisonment and torture by de
igning persons who, she claims, sought to
fi, her fortune. The first ink-
Mr. Brooks had of #|ie true

■cling This was the firsttime Mrs. Brooks
** enabled to elude the vigilaiico of her
captors and get word to her friends. This
was telegraphed over the country, and the
persons having her in custody, despairing of
worrying her fortune from her, set her free,
when she lost no time in getting home. This
IS i'en your correspondent to-day:
“Twenty- two veal's ago I was engaged to
be married to Marc us Van Dore. He en
tered the army, was wounded, came home
and died. He was possessed of a competency,
but just before his death this property was
increased by a large legacy from France.
Marcus was a descendant of Count Van
Core, a French nobleman. Tins legacy was
all in cash and bonds. Before his death Van
Bore made a will bequeathing me $300,000.
The instrument was drawn by one lawyer
bhoeman, of Indiana. It was not until sev
eral yeans later that I became apprised of
the nature of the will, and I was then mar
ried to Mr. Brooks. When I spoke of prov
ing niy claim, my husband grew indignant,
and declared that I might take my lover’s
money and go.
file trouble over this money was the
onlv cloud that came into our married life,
and for fourteen years I nursed the knowl
edge that I was an heiress, without money,
in my own breast. Then canje a letter from
a lawyer stating that the money was lying
idle aud that I should claim it. It was in
the custody of Anna Van Dore, Marcus' sis
ter. Later we met, and then entered into a
correspondence, which was kept up until
Miss V anDore returned to France. Before
she left an understanding was reached that
I should have the money whenever I claimed
it, and to prevent fraud we agreed upon a
secret mark to attach to all checks and
drafts. Last August a letter came asking
me to meet tho lady in St. Louis. I went,
but instead of meeting her Lawyer Shoe
man appeared on the scene and gave me a
draft tor $60,000, together with $20,000 costs.
“I then went to Denver, and shortly after
ward received a note asking me to meet Miss
Van Dore at Pueblo. I went there, and
again Shoeman appeared, telling mo that
Miss Van Dore was dying. I fainted, and
when I gained consciousness found myself a
prisoner. I was shut up alone in a room,
and was allowed to see no one for several
weeks. Twice a day, however, I was fed by
a woman. The draft and cash I had seercvjd
in my bustle, but my jailers secured it. In
that awful place, shut out from all womanly
companionship, deprived of all care and at
tention so greatly needed, my babe was
Here Mrs. Brooks’ moans and sobs were
pitiful. Continuing, she said:
“They killed my babe before my very
eyes. Two weeks ago a man who said he
was a detective came into my room and said
I was free to go, that he had just found out
where I was. He explained the delay by
saying that the man who kept mo a prisoner
said I was his crazy sister. Of the tortures
to which I was subjected look here,”
and Mrs, Brooks held up her
thumbs to view, showing where she
had been tied up by them. Her finger
ends, too, showed where attempts had been
made to draw the nails with pinchers.
“When I had recovered sufficiently I went
to San Francisco, and there met Anna But
terfield, my cousin. Together we started
East, but becoming suspicious that she was
in the conspiracy against my liberty, I
slipped out of the car one night, taking
with me her hat, dress, poeketbook and
ticket. I waited until the next traiu and
then proceeded on my journey. ”
Mrs. Brooks shows that the booty taken
from Miss Butterfield as evidence tho* she is
telling the truth. Sbe positively asserts that
she never was in Riverside, Cal., but shows
a photograph of Miss Butterfield in that
place, and the resemblance between the two
is striking. Mr. Brooks says he has no doubt
as to the truth of his wife’s story, and he
firmly believes the reported imprisonment
of his wife. Tiie couple appear to be fond
of each other, and there is nothing senti
mental about either. Mrs. Brooks looks
careworn and haggard, and her peculiari
ties were rendered remarkably striking as
she told her story of her wanderings. Occa
sionally 6he would hesitate and falter, then
break out into a torrent of weeping that was
PURS ORIENTAL MAGIC.
A Queer Little Story Which, of Course,
Is Not a Lie.
From Court Life in Egypt.
Stories of oriental magic have always their
own fascination. One is half inclined to
credit wise men of the East with possessing
a tradition of occult science long lost
among the restless changes of the West.
Such a story now came under my notice.
The Khedive sent for me one evening, and
“I have something curious to tell you.
There is a Turk here in Cairo who wears a
ring which he pretends is gifted with magic
virtues. I have seen him and the ring—it is
a plain loop of gold, set with a red stone,
which is said to liave come from Mecca.
The Turk also showed me a plate of silver,
engraved with verses from tne Koran. He
explained that he could not work the charm
himself, but required a child under 10 years
of age. The child takes the ring, the silver
plate is put on his head, and in a little while
the color of the stone changes to white. There
upon the child looks into the stone and
sees in it visions, aud can answer any ques
The Khe<five went on to say that, being
quite incredulous, he asked for permission
to take the ring home and try it in private.
The owner consented. So the Khedive took
the ring to Ismaila palace, where there hap
pened to be a little girl 8 years old belong
ing to the nurse —an ignorant child, unable
to read or write. When the plate of silver
was laid on her head and the ring given
into her hand, almost immediately she cried
out, “The stone has turned white.” The
Khedive then asked questions about persons
whom the child had not seen, and received
correct descriptions. Another person pre

How Lords and Ladies Said Smart
Things in the Old Days.
From the Philadelphia News.
A judge, whose personal appearance was
as unprepossessing as his intellect was keen
and his judgment fair, asked a young lady
who was noted for her sharp wit what she
meant by the term “humbug.” “Well, my
Lord,” replied the lady, angry at the inter
ruption, “I hardly know how to explain it;
but if a young lady called your Lordship a
handsome man, she would be humbugging
Even sharper was the epigrammatic reply
of a young lady to an old admirer, who,
having found her glove, returned it to her
with the following distich:
If from your glove you take the letter G.
Your glove is Jove, which I devote to thee.
The old gentleman's name was Page and
he received the following unexpected, an
swer, which chagrined him so much that he
left the place:
If from your Pace you take the letter P,
Your Page is age, and that won't do for me.
An old cavalier was asked, when Crom

Mr. Adam took for his text, to the surprise
of the congregation and his rival, the pass

he gained the lectureship.
To conclude, we give the story of an
amateur artist who had decided to send the
productions of a quarter of a century to
some charitable institution for the benefit of

invited an old, plain-spoken Scotch artist to
see his works, informing him at the same
time of his philanthropic intention, and ask

he should confer so much honor. “Well,”

A Stirring Episode in the Mayor’s
Office Over a Wedding.
Prom the New York Star.
While Mayor Hewitt was busy attending
•to the public business yesterday his messen
ger announced that a couple were in the
ante-room who desired that his honor should
make them one. They were Pasquale de
Palma, a bootblack, of No. 4 Marion street,
and Carmela Perora of No. H>7 Elizabeth
street. Tne prospective groom was 21 years
of age and the bride 1(1. They were accom
panied by the girl’s father, who had ex
pressed a desire to witness the ceremony.
While they were waiting for the Mayor,
Antonio Vero. a cousin of the bride, ex
citedly entered the office and denounced the
marriage, claiming that the girl was being
forced into the marriage with Palma. He
said that an agreement was entered into by
her father with Palma, whereby the former
was to receive one-half of $l5O, which tho
latter had in the savings bank, immediately
after the ceremony was performed. The
girl, he said, would not agree at first to this
proposition, until her father had beaten her
into submission. She was taken to the City
Hall by force. She liarl appealed to her
cousin Vero, as her only friend, to follow
her to the hall and stop the marriage.
While Vero was tolling this story to the
clerks the girl stood by, and appeared to be
in deadly fear of her father, who regarded
her with a fierce scowl.
This story was communicated to the
Mayor, who brought the girl into his private
office and questioned her very closely re
garding it. She said that she had refused
to marry Palma once, but that he came
back again and made some sort of bargain
with her father, and that now, sooner than
displease her father, she was willing to
marry Palma. The Mayor informed her
that she need not marry unless she wished
to, and he promised her that he would see
that she would Is; protected from any vio
lence from her father or any other person.
The girl, however, persisted that she was
willing to be married immediately.
The would-be husband was then called in,
and in reply to the questions of his honor
said that he worked at blacking boots on
board a Ixiat, at which he was able to make
from $0 to sls per week. He had already
saved and in bank $l5O, and would start
housekeeping as soon as the ceremony was
performed by a clergyman, Ixitb ceremonies,
he explained, being necessary to make the

fused to marry them, they would go some
This remark made the Mayor very angry,
but after giving the father a piece of his
mind he finally consented to marry the
couple. After the ceremony was performed
the Mayor asked her.
“Will you now kiss your husband?”
The girl said nothing, but she shook her
“Well, will you kiss the Mayor?” he con
The girl was still silent, but this time she
