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 ment 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 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 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 ure. . 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 toil from sun to sun and are hardly known by name. Scarcely a day pass es that wc do not receive (lead-head tickets and beautiful little ijicraentocs to prove that the busy world is not too busy to remembes us. Own mlit. Which means, ’tis well.

And yet his misfortune was one that often licfalls singers. Many a once tuneful voice nmong those who belong to the “ genus homo " Is utterly spoiled by " cold In the head,” or on the lungs, or both combined, For the above mentioned " croak er" we are not nwurc-tliat any remedy was ever devised; but we rejoice to know that all human singers may keep their heads ctenrund throats in tune by the timely use of Dr. Sngc's Catarrh lteinedy and Dr. Fierce’s Golden Med ical Discovery, both of which are sold by druggists.
