A GHOST IN HIS BED ROOM.
A Louisville Darkey Badly Fright
ened by a Spectral Visitant.
Alonzo Tliomns, a young colored
man employed at John Freeman’s
grocery, at 526 East street, was found
about daylight Saturday morning I'v
Officers l'ow and Gunther, standing
in front of his employer’s store in his
night clothes. When addressed by
the officers lie was unable to speak,
and it was evident that he was labor
ing under powerful mental excite
His eyes bulged out as if they would
burst from their sockets, and gleamed
like coals of fire. Hi? usually black
face had assumed an ashen hue, and
terror was stamped on every feature.
•When lie had recovered sufficient to
talk, he told the officers that he had
seen the ghost of Louis Roder in hi-
room. Thomas occupies a room in
the second story of a house on East
street, between Green and Walnut.
Louis Ilodcr, who formerly kept a
salooirat the corner ol Second and
Main, died in this room about six
months ago. Since his death, the
negroes of the neighborhood say hi?
ghost has returned every night to the
room. Thomas applied to rent the
apartment, and was told it was haunt
ed. He said he did not believe in
ghosts, and was not afraid to sleep in
there. The room was rented to him.
About 1 o’clock yesterday morning
he says he was aroused by a loud
noise on the outside which sounded
like n number of people tramping on
the steps. He got up and opened
the door, but nobody could be seen.
Thomas says he happened to cast lib
eye over iuto a dark corner of the
room, and tlu-ie stood the ghost ol
Louis Roder as plain as life. With a
yell of terror, Thomas broke from tin
room and rolled down the stairway
into the street, He was so badh
frightened that, he did not stop to gel
his clothing, and he could not he in
duced to go back after them. I It
stood shivering on the street the re
mainder of the night.
Thomas says he kuc\v Roder well
and is willing to stake his life on thi
truth of his assertion that he saw tin
ghost. The negroes of the neighbor
hood are terribly excited over th<
event, and it w ill be many a day be
fore another occupant for the room
will be found.—Courier Journal.
•We extract the following from the
last issue of the Arizona Kicker.
A Remedy.—We would suggest, in
the Postmaster-General that he drop
a line to the postmaster of this town
reading: “Maj. Bill Perkins—.Sir:
Either attend to your biz or git, and
I’d a little rather you’d git. So would
the people of your town. Yours truly,
and don’t be over a week making up
vour mind what course to take.”
The “Damp Tumbler” is Deadly.
The return of the healed term
brings back a discussion of summer
drinks. Of all beverages water is of
course the most wholesome in warm
weather. But water may become
more deadly than alehol. Dr. \\ il-
liam A. Hammond, the cellebrated
physician, in an article for the -North
American Review for June, brings
out this point. Water lor drinking
purposes should never be below fifty
decrees. t\ e can almost always get
it even in the hottest weather as cool
as this by letting it run for a minute
or two from any household faucet, or
drawing it lrom any country well. If
not, there is no objection to cooling it
to the point mentioned. The East
India “monkey," which can now be
had almost anywhere in this country,
and by means of which the contained
water is cooled by its own evapora
tion, answers the purpose admirably.
Di. Hammond is puite -sure that if
ice water should lie generally dis
carded as a drink, the average dur
ation of life would be lengthened and
existcr.ee rendered more tolerable.
Marriaqe Not a Failure Here.
The report of the police commis
sioners of New 5 ork city tor the last
year shows that of the S5,04!l people
arrested in that city dur.ng the year
on one charge and another, oli,6J9
were unmarried. The small propor
tion of married men arrested is proba
bly due to their having a judge at
home who won’t he fooled with hypo
critical promises of amendment. As
a police power marriage is not a fail
It Made Us Sad.—Mrs. Jud;
Shiver passed the Kicker office
11 o’clock Tuesday night, in a state ol
happy inebriation, being on her. way
home from a high lager beer given by
Mrs. l’rol. Westonhousc at her ele
gant mansion on Bronco Place. Mrs.
Judge was dragging her new bonnet
along the ground by the starboard tii
and softly singing about pansy blos
soms. We were sitting on the front
steps in the gentle moonlight, think
ing of the past and gone, and the
event saddened us more than \vc can
express. We had a mother once. She
was not beautiful, and splitting wood
while our dear father talked politic:
at the grocery made her lop-should-
cd, but she was good aud temperate.
Suppose she lutd been in the habit ol
getting slewed? Where would we have
been to-day? Instead of being at tin-
bead of a great weekly paper like the
Kicker, which nisi runs a harness
shop, grocery, feed stoic and bazaar
in connection, all under one oconom
ical management aud the same roof,
we should have inhabited a con
vict’s garb in some state prison. Vcni,
vidi curauter, which, if we remember
correctly, means: “The mother makes
the mau what he is.”
Unknown Emends.—Some time
during Mouday night some kind-
hearted but unknown friend left a
piece of rope about fifteen f.ct long,
beautifully noosed, on our steps, as a
present for our faithful work in this
community. We took it in and will
treasurp it highly.
The editors of the World, Herald,
Times and other New York sheets
