NYM CRINKLE’S HUNT FOR GHOSTS
IN A GREAT CITY.
A House with an Awful Record of
Disasters-How the Finger of the
Dead Guarded the Old Davidson
Mansion— A Night of Watching for
Spectres that was not Wholly Fruit
New York, Oct. I.— “No, we don’t r
pact to find any haunted houses in the gr-t
cities, especially in New York. The po
tieality and the mutability of men and hcses
are not favorable to ghosts.”
That’s what a member of the Societ' for
Psychical Research said to me.
I was amazed at it, for New York * the
matter of ghosts, as in the matter otnost
other things, is far ahead of the rest f the

No, sir, long before tie Society for Psy
chical Research was iutituted (whenever
we copy anything fron London we insti
tute it) we had a little party of practical
ghost hunters here in ths city who set out
to find the rationale of the ghost business.
If I tell you who were in that party you
will no doubt recogiize some of them.
There was Winship, the artist, who was a
Swedenborgian, one of the best talkers of
transcendentalism in the country and one of
the bitterest haters of the table tipping,
medium-working gang [ ever saw. There
was Ormund, who traveled all over the
country for well-attestel phenomena, who
wrote up the result of lis investigations in
the Graphic, and afterwards went to India
to study the Astral body business. There
was Dr. Meade, the pamphlets* •, and later
the Neurosthema inventor, one of the pro
foundest materialists I ever met, whose
theory of life was comprehended in the re
mark that “man was a worm in a barrel;”
and there was Avery Wells, who smoked
cigarettes and was once called “Unsavory
Smells” by John C. Freund. To this group
may be added Malden, the melancholy and
almost misanthropic wretch who wrote the
funny editorials for a daily paper and kept
the town laughing for a year or two before
he got a foreign appointment. Like all
funny men, he had a morbid desire to ex
ploit and expose Spiritualism.
Wells would hunt up haunted houses for
us—how he managed to find them I never
knew, but he certainly did furnish us with
some of the best attested cases of local dis
turbance and authenticated apparitions,
and he successfully exploded tfie old-fash
ioned notion that ghosts prefer to walk In
desolate old ancestral mansions by the
“nights’ Plutonian shore.” We found
them walking in railway stations, in store
houses, in bante'. in crowded tenements; that
is to say, we found the living record and
willing attestations of them. We were not
so luckv in finding V.._ wraith* themselves.
We visited two ola buildings up town, said
to have been built during the revolution,
and-having a clear sheet of ghost disturb
ance stretching over fifty years. We did
the regular business of watching with a
candle through the night; we tried to secure
all the conditions of superior sub-natural an
noyance. But not a crack of a board, not
a breath of cold air, not a footfall, or a clank,
or a sigh broke the stupid monotony of our
Malden made lightsome fun of us in his
best sepulchral style, and Dr. Meade ac
cepted the negative results as proofs posi
We tried the Nathan mansion not long
after the celebrated murder. We took one
of the best “sensitives” there, and had a
midnight lunch sent over from the Fifth Av
enuo Hotel. Wo went up to the Morrison
bouse after that strange story in all the
papers, of a face in the window. We got
home to sit out an examination of the
Crugcr house. But we did not get a sound
or a sight of a ghost, and Malden and the
doctor had humor and science all tliexown
way until we ran across the Will Davidson
house, on the Fifth avenue
I ought to tell you, though, one very nota
ble tiling about that Cruger house on Sec
ond avenue, and I don’t think any of the
investigating party that I have named (one
of them, alas, is dead) will dispute the state
ment, which is this: We found indubitable
living evidence that, whether ghost-haunted
•i-f not, the Cruger house, so far as the ten
ants were concerned, was under some kind
of a spell or cui so. The record of misfor
tunes begins abn.y, fifteen years ago. A
whe'e family of twelve melted away in it
during one year, and the father, who was a
Prussian, fled to his native country. As
near as we could get at it there was not the
slighest ground for suspicion of epidemic or
poison, or hereditary cause. Each victim
died from a differing set of circumstances.
The next tenant was a boss mason by the
name of Conly or Cowly. He had a wife
and two children, one of which was an in
fant in arms. He had not been in the house
three montlis before the infant was killed
by a most extraordinary accident. The
father came in one day suddenly, picked
the infant up from its mother’s lap and in
tossing it up impulsively struck the sharp
point of a common chandelier squarely in
ti i the suture of its head and killod it in
About five months after wards Mrs. Conly,
who was standing on a stepladder in the
same room putting up a window curtain,
fell, by the giving way of the steps in a
laterai direction, knocking down a large
mirror, a fragment of which severed
every artery in one arm, and she blod
to death before assistance could tie ob
We saw the blood stains on the boards
The next victim in the house was ayoung
man by the name of Ryerson, who, you may
recall, was accidentally shot by his own
brother while sitting at the window where
Mrs. Conly hail fallen a year or twobefore.
There was then a pond in an empty lot op-
IH-idte the house, and the younger brother
had gone there with a musket to shoot frogs.
The first shot he fired struck the surface of
the pond, glanced and entered the left breast
of the young man at the window. You
w ill find newspaper accounts of it in the
files of 18t>2.
Up to as late as 187!), when ( lie place was
pulled down, every tenant met with mis
fortune or disaster, and nearly every acci
dent took place in this room. One servant
was nearly burned to death by kerosene
poured into a lighted fire. Two others were
so badly mall,mated by tramps that they
died, and a Mr. Cunningham, wdio hired
the house in 187t>, and hail never shown the
slightest inclination toward insanity, was
found one morning hanging to the same
chandelier that had killed Conly’s baby.
The weight of his body bail pulled the gas
pipe through the plaster, after ho was
dead and let him down on his feet, so that
instead of hanging, he was found standing
erect, a ghastly corpse, in the middle of the

Tr. Stalnitz failed.
This strange succession of catastrophes
w as put down by Mr. Meade to coincidence.
But it was curious, to say the least, that
the chain of coincidences, perfect up to
1879, was promptly and effectually broken
by rooting out the place from the founda
All I’ve got to say is that the superstition
embodied in the idea that to change one’s
habitat is to change one’s luck is among the
widest spread and deepest rooted of human
notions. And our Investigations forced up
on us the conclusion that some houses m
New York had unimpeachable records of ill
luck. But we did not find them associated
with spirit disturbances.
THE GHOSTS STEALING BED CLOTHING.
With regard to the Will Davidson mansion
on upper Fifth avenue the circumstances
were of an entirely different character.
Will leased his house for three years It
was one of a row of five-story brownstone
front residences that brought a high rental,
being opposite the park His family was
a large one, there being four or fivo chil
dren and several servants. His wife began
to complain of mysterious annoyances when
they had been there but two weeks.® The
children came trooping into her room at
night in great fright to declare that some
one had pulled “all the bed clothes off.”
Her suspicion that one of the boys was im
plicated in the trick was completely dissi
pated by putting them in separate rooms
and locking all the doors. One morning she
found the sheets and coverlets of the three
girls’ beds tied in a congeries of hard knots
in the middle of the room so tightly that it
required the full strength of the three stout
servants to extricate them after working
The result of this was vexation, not alarm.
Will was as far removed from superstition
as Is a meat ax. Ho swore at the d— non
sense, but told of it on the street as a prac
tical joke. When, however, the annoyance
increased and Mrs. Davidson declared she
would leave the house, Will, withe,practical
man’s method, went to a plumber and asked
him to overhaul the place. This plumber
sent three men with a kit of tools one morn
ing. They proceeded to open up a dark closet
at the basement, where pipes were inter
laced. What they encountered was not
learned at the time. They went away sud
denly, leaving their tools, and the next
morning Will went to the plumber’s and
wanted to know what kind of men ho had
sent there. “I found nothing done when
1 went home,” he said, “and your men
“What kind of a house have you got?”
asked the plumber. “My men say I haven’t
got money enough to make ’em work in it.
Will moved out in the spring after
the annoyances had become insupportable
and it was found impossible to keep any
After hearing his stories, Winship and
Wells and 1 determined to get the keys and
spend the night there.
We had a great deal of trouble in accom
plishing our purpose, on account of the
owner’s disinclination to have his property
injured by ghost investigations. But Wells
bribed the old man who had charge of the
empty building and we got in with a lamp,
a basket of refreshments and some smoking

and the, click of high heels as they swept up
We had a dreary enough night of it up to
1 o'clock in the morning. We did not hear
a sound except an occasional rat in the
walls or an early beetle from the park as
he butted against the pane. Wells went to
sleep on the floor, with his arm under
his head, and Winship and I talked art.
We had set the kerosene lamp on a soap
box, where its two-inch flame burned
bright enough to make the big room look
Suddenly in one of the pauses of listening
Winship caught me by the arm and pointed
silently at this flame. It had grown sensi
bly larger and there was a round hole in the
centre of it.
We both stared at the phenomenon with
out saying a word. There was no explana
tion of it. The aii- was calm and the lamp
undisturbed; but there was the perfectly de
scribed circle two inches iu diameter, around
which the steady flame ascended without
breaking its line.
Then, while we were looking at it, there
came through the orifice a perfect and
symmetrical human index finger, on which
we saw the pink nail and the first joint.
It pointed steadily at AV ells, who was fast

As he spoke the finger disappeared. It
did not melt. It was slowly pulled out of
the hole, and a few minutes later the hole
itself closed up.
That was the sum total of our experience
in the Davidson house. We saw nothing
else and heard nothing, and about 3 o’clock
came awav tired out.
VVe could not make the doctor or Malden
believe that we hail not been victimized
by our senses. The doctor wrote a pam

NEEDS OF ACTRESSES.
Good Health, a Good Nose and Passable
New York, Oct. I.—“ What do I need to
become a successful actress?”
“You need a good nose, with passable
features and a respectable figure added
thereto. You need some brains, a voice
ca]iable of training, a minimum of nerves
and a genius for advertising. You need
perfect health. With all these requisites
you will probably fail, but you won’t suc
ceed without them, especially without the
The most charming actresses on the stage
are, with rare exceptions, women of robust
health. Personal charm has quite as much
to do with success on the boards as mental
ability,perhaps more—and personal charm—
that something which lies deeper than mere
beauty and is called for want of a better
word, “magnetism'’—depends to a wonder
ful extent on the physical condition of the
actress. Clara Morris is a fiat contradic
tion? Yes, but her uncannily absorbing art
is scarcely more than a study of pathology.
One could not call her charming, as men,
who are the great theatre-goers, understand
the word, though Oscar Wilde did profess
himself smitten and express a desire to see
her in a low-necked dress, which desire was
gratified by a lady who introduced the two
at an evening reception some days later.
Mrs. Langtry's manager once told me that
the Lily was ttie best matinee attraction on
the stage. That is, she is as attractive to
women as well as to men. Her healthy
English color has paled of late and she uses
too much of the cosmetics she puffs, but her
beauty is still the beauty of good health,
and her complexion, when she lets it alone,
the product of clear blood and plenty of
exercise. She is a famous walker and must
regret her quarrel with Coghlan if only for
the chance it lost her of still further adver
tising in his new play her skill with the foils.
Coglilan’s sister is a woman whose success
has defied the analysis of clever critics.
Rose Coghlan is not pretty, at least her face
is not, but two generations have raved over
her beauty. Her first appearance as Rosa
lind. in New York, packed the theatre. Her
admirers could not be counted. Her rude
health is the only explanation, that and the
lass important possession of a fair allowance
of brains. Rose is rugged and her vigor is
AVhen Daly took his company to England
the London Times called Ada Rehan
“pawky.” None of us in America knew
what the word meant, but it sounded badly
and looked worse, and wo were inclined to
be angry about it until the explanation
came that “pawky” was a provincialism for
charmingly healthy or healthily charming.
Ada Rehan is a wholesomely well woman,
and nobody who ever witnessed her tri
umphant entry upon the stage in “A Night
Off’’or “Nancy cc Cos.” could doubt that
her instant and easy mastery over-her audi
ence is gained almost entirely by the breezy
air of health she carries with her.
It is the same with Carrie Turner. She
is no beauty, but she is so beautifully healthy
that not one person in ten who sees her calls
her face to severe account. Mrs. George
Gould, before she became the mother of the
only baby whose long clothes were ever
photographed for daily newspaper illustra
tion, was, as Miss Kingdom a vigorous girl
well cared for by a good mother, extremely
fond of tho open air and beaming with the
roses of exercise.
Fanny Davenport’s strength is a marvel.
Her father was a man of fine physical pro
portions, and I have seen Fanny myself, as
Lady Gay Spanker, catch her Dolly in a
rapturous embrace and swing him three
times round her, his feet performing a dizzy
circle in the air but never touching the floor.
Fanny doesn't do that now. The antics that
woman went through a couple of yearsago,
when she was trying to get rid of her super
abundant flesh, would have killed an ordi
nary woman, but produced little or no effect
on her. Mary Anderson is a woman whom
nearly all the men of my acquaintance have
been hopelessly in love with at one time or
another, and, strangely enough, all women
like her,# too Her charm of maimer de
pends on her good blue grass constitution,
and I am not sure that she does not owe
more of her froedom from care and worry
to good health than to religion, though the
latter gets all the credit with her. The
Bernhardt used to have the agility and
strength of a oat. Patti is a robust woman.
The queens bf ojieraand tragedy are women
of majestic physique. Frau Materna is im
posing b > look on. Lilli Lehman is a woman
of magnificent health.
Janauschek is an old woman but a vigor
ous one. Modjeska is as charming as when
she was younger. I have seen poor Selina
Dolaro, when she must have been past 40,
carry a whole theatre full of people into
raptures by the vigor anil physical perfec
tion of a Spanish shawl dance. Annie Robe
is so sound of health that her skin keeps
fresh enough to call for no make up after
years on the stage. She has never even
tried a dash of powder. Annie Pixley is a
well woman, with a skin as soft as a baby’s.
Rosina Yokes was something of an invalid
last year, but years ago, when the Y'okeses
were all together, it was the bloom and
flush of health in the faces of the girls quite
as much as Fred Yokes’ funny long legs and
Fawdon Yokes’ short ones that male them
popular. Rosina is very fond of horses and
she never paints. She has a lino constitu
tion to back her.
One hears much of Ellen Terry’s invalid
ism but she is better than she looks She
has never taken care of her skin and the
result is misleading. She rubs on a dense
coat of chalk for the stage, takes no pains
to get it off and her face is shrivelled and
dead looking under the sunlight next morn
ing. It is her own tault and she has plenty
of life otherwise. Miss Eastlako does her
self injustice in the same way. She is as
well as a woman could be, but sometimes
looks delicate because she has been careless
with cosmetics and hurt her complexion.
Grace Hawthorne has made her success in
London by the buoyant optimism that be
longs to a good digestion. Tho whole army
of soubrettes, who pattern after Lotta and
Maggie Mitchell, trade on their strength
and freedom from Ixxlily ills. They con
quer popularity by force of turbulent
health. Invalids on the stage are rare birds.
Emma Abbott flaunts her exuberant life in
your face. Kate Ciaxton would bo dead
liefore now if she were not physically sound
to a remarkable degree. I knew a boy who
made a plentiful meal of choke cherries and
milk because he had heard the combination
warranted to produce stomachic disorder
and keep a lad home from school, In tho
same way sore throats are conveniences to
singers, anil Helen Dauvray’s recent ner
vous prostration disappeared with marvel
ous suddenness the day after she had dis
banded her company and freed herself from
the necessity of flinging good money after
There has never been any nonsense about
fashionable pallor on the stage. Htago
beauties, in spite of late hours, the vexation
and fatigues of traveling, tho strain of the
work, exposure to draughts, etc., are strong
women, and women off the stage are flnrl
ing out that by cultivating health they, too,
cultivate in equal proportion good looks anil
charm. Eliza Putnam Heaton.
