TEAT STRANGER IN THE SKY.
It Makes a Row Between Zephaniah
Cinders and Lamentation Jackson.
FYom the New York Herald.
Lucinda Johnson’s german broke up in a
row. And, would you believe? it was all
because of a silver light that had loomed
up recently in the western skies.
Yes, it does seem ridiculous; but that
some glinting, twinkling stranger is what
brought Miss Lucinda and a score of her
guests to tku Harlem Police Court yes
This is the way it came about. Miss John
ten has long been considered the leader in
all that is gay and cultured iu the up-town
colored coterie. Buxom, brash, and bilious
in complexion rather than black, she was
eminently fitted to handle the social reins
in her somewhat fast set.
It was but natural that she should wish
to celebrate the coming out of her sister,
Miss Larceny Johnson, in a manner that
would accord with her own brilliant posi
tion in society. And this was partly the
purpose of the cotillion at the family resi
dence on Friday evening. In order that the
affair might be wanting in no detail of
unique attractiveness the dancing was to be
followed by an experience meetiug and a
song service instead of the usual vulgar sup
per that obtains on such occasions.
That the experience meeting and song
service did not come off is no fault of Miss
Lucinda’s. The blame lies with yon splen
did spark, set like an opal iu a field of sap
Judge for yourself if ’tisn’t so.
Everything went off delightfully in the
early part of the evening—a trifle stiff and
starchy, perhaps, but elegant and courtly.
Later tripping feet plunged through the ice
of formality, and tilings promised well for
the experience meeting and song service
that were to conclude the gayeties.
It was after the sixth figure of the dance,
according to tho storv told the Judge yes
terday, that the trouble began. The room,
it seems, hnd become somewhat heated, and
Lamentation Jackson approaching the de
butante of the evening said:
“Mith Lnhsny, would’n’ you like to tek a
few laps aroun’ de pizassa?’’
“Wo-11, Mithter Jackthon,” came the
drawling reply of the child of midnight
eyes. “I dunno ez I ken prezackley thay thet
I have any ’mosity to tekken a po’made on
And all the trouble came from that
promenade on the piazza. Just a slight
variation, you see, of the Eve episode.
UNDER AN UNLUCKY STAR.
The couple walked up and down the roof
of tho small shed where Obadiah Dempsey,
whose house adjoins the Johnson abode,
keeps bis goats, but which serves nicely as
a poroli for the neighboring residence.
Stopping in tho midst of a low-toned dis
cussion of the merits of peppermint as a
handkerchief perfume, Miss Larceny, turn
ing to her assiduous escort, asked;
"Bah de way, Mithter Jackson, ken you
’form me wat am dat bright thpeck, kanna
white and kanna yallor, over yonner in de
hebben? You thee it right ober Go-to-meetin’
Mr. Jackson shaded his eyes knowingly
for a moment, and then confessed that he
failed to see the object of Miss Johnson’s
“Whar am your eyes, Mithter Jackthon?”
returned the young lady. “Doan you thee
it a-wiggliu an’a-wagglin fum way back?’
“Well, Mith La’sny, dem debblish black
eyes o’ yourn hez kanna blanded me fur de
install’, but nah I ’col’ect dat I was readin’
dat de great ’scoverer, Mithter Ed’thon, hez
done thent a balloon up ’bout sebben mile,
wid a 'leetic light on de inside. Dat's what
dat am—Mithter Ed’thon’s ’lectio light,”
ami Jackson stuck one hand behind his
coat tails, beat one knee and waited for the
lady’s comment on his cleverness.
“Thakes alive, Mithter Jackthon, whar
you git all dat larnin? You’r as snappy as
a raap pe’simmon.’’
THROWING THE APPLE OF DISCORD.
While the couple were engaged in view
ing the mystic glimmer in the west, Miss
Appleblossoin Bioomer came along, leaning
on the arm of Zephaniah Cinders.
“You a-wishin’by de ebenin’ star, peo
ple?" pleasantly inquired Cinders.
"Dat ain’t no elvenin’ star, Mithter Cin
ders,” returned Miss Johnson tartly —she
once charged the same gentleman with hav
ing attempted to scandalize her character—
“dat am Ed’thon’s ’lectic; light.”
“Who tell you dat foolishness? Dat ain’t
no ’lectic light. Dat am Wenus.”
“Wath dat?” spoke up Jackson threaten
“All thay,” reiterated Cinders in a tone
that meant fight, “ah thav dat am Wenus.”
"Thee hyar, Mithter Cinders,” broke in
Miss Johnson, with mounting color, “dat
am not do langvvidge to use befoah ladies,
an’ you is talcin’ wantage o’ de company to
Cinders protested that his language cer
tainly intended no disrespect to his compan
ions. ‘ H<' said that he hail heard a party of
gentlemen in his barber shop discussing the
presence of the stranger in the skies and
that he had learned his facts from their con
versation. “An’ ah tell you,” he concluded
a; grily, “dat it am Wenus.”
“Ah tell you again!” cried Miss Johnson;
“duan you stall’ acre and speak de name ob
such a pusson as dat. All know her; ah
seen her picture—de nattliy, good for nuffin
hussy wat goes aroun’ wid no does on. You
ought to bo ‘shame, you common, ondeau
liiggah, to hab de 'dacity to breave de name
of such wuffless trash. Ah guess, howsom
ever, dat your maw walin’t much better."
THE CRISIS REACHED.
It was that last remark probably that
precipitated the climax. Jackson and Cin
noi-s did, indeed, exchange a few compli
ments, in which allusion was made to the
fact that any man could wear a dress suit at
a german if he shaved white trash for two
weeks to raise enough money to pay for its
loan, to which Cinders replied that his
friend Jackson ought to lie aware that white
overalls and celluloid dickies are no longer
in regele evening dress.
Accounts differ as to subsequent proceed
ings. When the policemen, who were sum
moned, arrived on tho scene they found a
stale of affairs that called for ambulance
wagons and the fire patrol. Miss Lucinda
Johnson iusisted on preferring a charge of
mayhem against Cinders at once. She con -
fveed she didn't know what it meant, but
she w as certain that Cinders had done it.
“Dot, polluting coon,” she explained amid
her tears to the Sergeant, at the station, "ho
goe. aroun’ abreakin’ all de ten command
’ants nil' aworryin’ dat der ain’t no more of
’em ilat he can sao’lege an' scarify.”
But the judge in the Harlem Court heard
with impartial care both sides of the story.
He looked with unbinsed eye on the score or
more of Lucinda Johnson’s guests who wore
brought before lum on the charge of disor
derly conduct; lie noted their dishevelled
linerv, their torn clothes, their downcast,
regretful explosions, and when ho learned
that tho trouble had all begun in a dispute
over the identity of a mysterious twinkler
in the heavens, he decided to dismiss the
prisoners, one and ail, with some good ad
vice mid a warning.
“To tell the truth," said his honor, “I
have; mysojf witnessed so many angry argu
ments and heated disputes occasioned by
that sunio star that I can readily under
stand how a spirited company, falling foul
of tho subject, might be led to unseemly
conduct. So, good poople, you can go this
time, but I would suggest that you contrive
to get together in the near future to hold
the experience meeting and song service
which was unavoidably omitted from Miss
And as they paraded out of court Miss
Larceny Johnson said under her breath that
it would tuke "a heap o’ sporieuce an’ dng
j'l' to save folk* what Uses enolea.l
Jangwidge,” whereupon Apple Hlesvnu
Mloomer retorted that “Do I.sir’ ain’t got no
tm,e for nussons dat disfouod a *ltic Inm
(*Tti on’ llis own stars dat shine bah night.”
NOT ALONE IN THE QUANDARY.

Possibly it is but a wayward fragment of
the milky path that has started out to sot

about among distant worlds.
Wily does not someone offer a prize for
a solution of the mystery? It does not cost
anything to offer prizes and it has oftdn
proved an effective method in dealing with
mooted questions of this sort.
It is perhaps the uppermost matter in the
public mind to-day, that star is. In com
parison with it the fact that Mrs. Langtry
has become an American citizen fades into
comparative pettiness. For the time being
the flaneurs cease to record the status or re
lations between Mr. and Mrs. James Brown
Potter. In the dazzling suggestiveness of
this stellar steamer the public is blinded to
the stirring question as to what is the proper
color of tennis stockings. Curiosity no
longer stands on tiptoe to learn whether the
decollete, tendency will really work itself
into a pair of shoulder straps. Even the
theatrical liar, who cometh at this season
with an elaborate fabrication of the virtue,
genius and family distinction of his artist,
finds himself thrust into the shade.
ON THE ANXIOUS SEAT.
Letters by the score and hundreds pour
into the office burdened with queries as to
the identity of “that bright speck in the
west.” From all sorts and conditions of
people, from all regions of the country—
State and Territory', town and hamlet—
comes the same interrogation:
“What is it?’
One impulsive young woman, who signs
herself Merthy Nougat, writes;
“I had a dispute with my steady com
pany. He says it. is Edison’s electric light.
I say it is the Star of Bethlehem. Please
decide this at once. My engagement de
pends upon it. Also, can you give me a
good receipt for freckles?"
• A man writing from Swansea, N. H.
says: “I’ve just made a bet up to Keene
that that star is the very same spoken of in
the second chapter of" Matthew. I bet a
yoke of steers. Do I lose? If so be I’ll put
a labol on ’em, ‘Hence these s’toars.’ How’s
that? Will it do for a city joke? Have
read your paper since the sixties.”
A young fellow came into the office at a
late hour last night and said he had come
up from Long Beach to got the astronomer
to decide a bet as to the identity of the star.
He said he represented a syndicate that hail
wagered $250 that it was nothing but an
illuminated balloon sent up at Menlo Park.
A reporter trotted all over this town to
get some opinions on the character of the
stranger. All sorts of theories and sugges
tions were offered. He spoke to poets,
preachers, painters, musicians, hucksters,
actors, politicians. Aldermen, ballet girls,
barkeepers—Tom, Dick and Harry.
The answers were learned, trifling, se

Avery learned astronomer told the writer
so only yesterday. It was Mr. Henry M.
Parkhurst, whose observatory is up in a tall
building on Chambers street.
Why, if that was an electric light, he
said, it would have to be up about 700 miles
to appear where it it does.
It’s Venus She gets around here once
every twelvemonth. It happens that she
looks a little better now than when she last
played an engagement here, and so every
body is inclined to believe she isn’t the
original production, as played with stu
pendous success, and so forth and so on.
Owing to previous contracts the present
engagement is limited, and if you want an
advantageous view seats had better he
booked at once.
“But how is it, Mr. Parkhurst, that this
star seems to wiggle and move up and down,
and all that?"
“Ah, that’s all in your eye, my by,” he
replied, “all in your eye.”
So that settles it.
HAUNTED BY SPOOKS.
The Strange Complaint Made by Erne
From the Philadelphia Newt.
Emeline Unruh, of Germantown, who
claims to be the victim of unholy witch
craft, filed a remarkable bill in equity in
the Common Pleas Court yesterday after
noon. The story as set forth by the oratrix
is an interesting one and savors of the days
of Roger Williams, when death at the stake
would have tieen the portion of the accused.
The bill is as follows:
“Your oratrix complains: First, that
your oratrix, a resident of Germantown, in
the Twenty-second ward of the city of
Philadelphia, hacr been from 1883, to
May, 1887, sick, enfeebled, nud her mind
had lemme greatly impaired by physical
prostration as to render her helpless and
unfit to transact any business whatever, and
whilst so prostrated, both physically and
mentally, your oratrix was under the care,
control, custody, direction nnd in
fluence of Bridget E. Nichols, who
acted in the capacity of domes
tic servant for her. Second, while
under such control, care, custody, direction
and influence, the said Bridget E. Nichols,
for the purpose of cheating and defrauding
your oratrix out of large sums of money,
falsely and fraudulently induced her to be
lieve that a spell laid been put upon her by
some invisible power; that until certain
things would be accomplished by parties
whom she knew had the power to remove
spells, she would never get better; that it
would require considerable money to re
move them, as the parties resided in distant
lands, and could be reached only by tele
graph : that each telegram would cost at least
from $lO to $lB. which sums were pnid by
her to the said Bridget E. Nichols, on
various occasions. Third, the said Bridget
E. Nichols, well knowing the weak and en
feebled condition of your oratrix’s mind,
and her utter inability to either take care
of herself or her property, or resist the evil
influences of said defendant, did fraudu
lently and unlawfully combine, conspire
nnd agree with one Alice Maguire, late
Alice Jordan, and a colored physician,
known bv the name of Dr. Hall, now de
ceased, to obtain, extort, defraud ami
cheat, by false and fraudulent representa
tions, witchery and trickery, your oratrix
out of large sums of money, aggregating
about $ 1,038.
“Fourth, that in order to operate more ef
fectually on weak aud enfeebled eondi
tiop of your oratrix's mind, and impress her
with tho importance and necessity of re
movijig the supposed spells, th*s*jd da/erul
ottts, by contrivances then unknown to your
oratrix, caused kmd and strange voices,-to
gether with loud rapping* and otluu- unnat

rious parts of your oratrix’s residence; and
to further intimidate hor the suid defend

mals, placing them in her house, thereby

yells and unearthly screaming, for the pur- j

of deceiving, extorting.chcating and terrify
ing her into the payment of large sums of
money, running from SIOO to SI,OOO aat
time. Fifth, the said defendants, for the
purpose of further cheating and defrauding
your oratrix, procured and furnished largo
brass bugs and had them placed on various
parts of your oratrix's residence, under tho
pretense that they were necessary to remove
the said spells, for which she has been
defrauded out of $lO for each of tho said
hugs. Also large plates with numerous
devices and hierogylphics inscrib'd upon
them were procured and furnished by the
said defendants, and falsely and fraudulent
ly represented as coming from a far-off is
land at a great expense for the purpose of
teaching the said Bridget Nichols the art of
banishing spells, and particularly to keep
the spools from the friends and relatives of
your oratrix, whereby she has been de
frauded and cheated by the said defendants
out of sums of money running from SIOO to
SOOO to remove the spells from each of her
friends and relatives then mentioned, and
SI,OOO each for the said Bridget E. Nichols
and Alice Maguire, to remove tho spells
from them. Sixth, that the said Dr. Hall,
through tho collusion and connivance of the
said defendants, together with colored poo
ple unknown to your oratrix, would call
upon her during the late hours of night,
wherein the said Dr. Hall, while standing
at her bedside, would rub her arms and
utter some unintelligible sounds anil incan
tations, and declare that devils were leaving
her one by one.
REMOVING THE STELLS
“That during each of those visits the said
defendants would demand, exact and extort
from your oratrix various sums of money
by lafsely and fradulently representing that
the paymant of such sums was necessary to
drive away the spells. Seventh, that the
money so falsely, unlawfully ami fraudu
lently obtained and extorted from your ora
trix by the said Bridget Nichols has been
laid out and expended for the purchase of
certain real estate herein describsl; that
the title thereto is in her own
name and described as follows: All
that certain lot or piece of ground, with the
messuage or tenement thereon erected, sit
uate ou the north corner of Bringhurst and
Wakefield streets, in Germantown, in the
Twenty-seoond ward of the city of Phila
delphia; thence extending along the north
west side of said Bringhurst street north
fifty-two degrees, east sixty-seven feet three
inches to a corner; thence along the south
western side of an alley two feet six inches
wide; thence north forty-eight degrees.
west sixteen feet two and a quarter inches
to a corner; thence south forty-one de
grees twenty-four minutes, west sixty-seven
feet and four inches to the northeasterly
side along Wakefield street; thence
along the same south forty degrees
thirty-six minutes, east fifteen feet six inch
es to the place of beginning, together with
the free use, right, liberty and privilege of
the said two feet six inches wide alley; that
your oratrix is informed and believes that
the said Bridget E. Nichols is about making
sale and disposing of the said premises for
the purpose of defrauding your oratrix.”
The court is therefore asked that all the
money extorted from the plaintiff be ac
counted for and paid back; that if Bridget
E. Nichols has encumbered or in any way
disposed of the real estate the proceeds of
the sale shall be paid to plaintiff, and Brid
get E. Nichols lie restrained from selling,
transferring, disposing or encumbering in
any way the nail estate and that said prem
ises be held in trust for the plaintiff.
