HAUNTED HOUSES. 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 less. (Copyrighted 1887.) 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 country. There are plenty of haunted houSi with all modern improvements, on the Fth av enue, tenanted by advance ghoA quite abreast of the latest thing iu peumatol ogy: I don’t think the ghost businesis carried on anywhere on the island in tfc old-fash ioned and ridiculous stripe of tb ghosts of a hundred years ago. The splits do not clank chains and point out burid skeletons and knock down the pans and rockery, and scare the life out of the kite ten maids as they did in the time of the Lesleys. Nor are the hauuted houses isiated and set apart for the finger of supeiitition to point at tremblingly. Asa rulo as fast as the ghosts drive out one fainil; another comes in, and whenever the plac- becomes unten antable, that great oxogiser, the contrac tor, comes along, sprinkfcs his holy water on it with a hose and tec’s it down. That plan effectually scattersihe spirits whether they materialize as rats or roam as wraiths. 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 vigils. Malden made lightsome fun of us in his best sepulchral style, and Dr. Meade ac cepted the negative results as proofs posi tive. 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 stantly. 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 tained. We saw the blood stains on the boards long afterwards. 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 room. In 1878 Franz Stalnitz, a wealthy and suc cessful German, who was building a factory near by, leased the house and refitted it completely. His wife diet! of a lightning stroke six months after. The, electricity stpk the front chimney, tore up the bricks a i hurled Mrs. Stalnitz, who was sitting ane grate, across the room, where she sflek her t emple on the sharp corner of a xlachite pedestal. Her skull was crushed , but there was no mark of the electricity pon her person. Before the year expired 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 tion. 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. f 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 several hours. 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 gone.” “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. It’s haunted.” Will moved out in the spring after the annoyances had become insupportable and it was found impossible to keep any help. 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 tobacco. Mrs. Davidson had told us to go on a Thursday night and we'd hear the proces sion, for it seems the spirits held regular Thursday night receptions, and many was the night she and her frightened children hail listened to the switch of satin petticoats and the, click of high heels as they swept up the staircase. 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 dismal. 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 asleep. IS3 n t' ■ §■• m -mm -.a =**■ _rr* 1 IT SCARED TIIK PLUMBERS. I touched him, and ns he woke pointed to the lamp. I shall never forget the awed look of amazement on his face. “I’d give my right arm,” said Winship, in a husky kind of whisper, “if the doctor was here.” 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 phlet not long after on “Phantasms of the But Wells and I went with Will to the plumber’s and found one of the men who THE MORNING NEWS: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1887. hnd been sent to the house. This is what he said: “Well, boss, I don’t go much on spooks and fairies, that’s a fact. I’m a plain sail ing mechanic, and I work too hard to dream. But it took the wind o’ me when 1 put that lamp down on the cellar floor for to see what I was about, and a big hole Mowed itself in the middle of it and a dead man's finger was shoved through at it. That was too much for the three of us, and 1 kinder think it would a pleased you some.” Nym Crinkle. NEEDS OF ACTRESSES. Good Health, a Good Nose and Passable Features Indispensable. 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 health.” 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 infectious. 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 bad. 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. * Lord Beaconsfleld Cherished English primroses as the sweetest of flowers.
