Samuel Morris to be seen at the opera House this tuesday evening May 12th, gives a graphic portrayal a very laughable condition things in one the catch Iest farce comedies 6n the stage this Mason. Ghostly manifestations a Linton township the superstitious. By James our Early fathers and who believed in witches beloved also in ghosts. They brought this belief with them from their Homes in the East. They aug believed in tokens disaster to happen Good Luck death Etc. For instance if what they called a Iii other words harmless meteor which hovers above moist and Fenny places in the night time and emits a glimmering Light they regarded it As a malicious spirit endeavouring to deceive the bewildered traveler and Lead him to destruction. I have heard my own Mother and Eider Sisters say. When i was a Small Bov that should a person follow one those glimmering lights which called they Wouita Lead you into inextricable bogs s a amps and into a River where you would be Iron . The ticking noise a Little inject that used to fest the crevices our jog Cabin called the death was Consin iced a bad Omen. 1 have heard Thi noise Many times myself and shuddered at the death in the but i Learned in time that it was a Little innocent insect that burrowed in the crack our old lot House and that there could be no harm in it. Nor any sign death about it. There other ominous which forefathers and mothers paid considerable attention to such As a screech owl creaming at the window a Raven croaking Over a House a door in the night time a Rabbit a sow crossing the Road before them a Snake lying in the Road spilling table Salt Curling Down a Candle Wick. Etc. All these were regarded with apprehensions Ter ror As prognostics impending Dis asters approaching death. One modern philosopher says Man. Ever prone to disturb Bis own peace notwithstanding the real evils he has to suffer has been ingenious enough to imaginary monsters which have no existence either in heaven Earth nor the least foundation in the scenes external nature. He has not Only drawn false conclusions from the objects which have a real existence to increase his fears but has created in his imagination an Ideal world and peopled it with spectres Hob goblins fairies imps a wraiths Genii brownies witches w wizards. And other fantastical be Ings to whose caprices he believer his happiness and misery Are subject now this foolishness if we might Call it not confined alone to the poor and ignorant Mankind but Wati present in the the Rich the Gay. The affluent and even those who regarded them elves As among the Wise. Great generals had to acknowledge that evil Enid is and ghostly haunted teem at times. We read prominent men who saw before their eyes. Constantly Day and night ugly spectres which haunted them and from which they could not separate Al though they believed it Only imagination their mind. One Man. I read . Died from the effect such hallucination. Another Man we Are told. Wife in child bed. She was a Beautiful woman in life but in death looked Haggard and cadaverous. He buried her. But afterwards a spectre haunted him which purported to be the ghost his wife telling him she was not really was and that Haggard figure he had buried was not but was substituted by some fairies for her. This spectre haunted him nightly claiming to be his wife and one night to convince him More fully. Let the babe she had left with him nurse at her breast and dropped a few drops breast milk the bed clothes which was plainly vis Ible in the husband believed it an illusion but could t get rid the phantom. He told the mat Ter to his pastor who told him it was an illusion and to shake it off if he could. But the Man never fully got rid it it that . Samuel. Johnson a noted physician and writer eng land believed in ghosts. Van Hel Mont bodies Strozza. And Martin Luther attributed Thunder and meteors to the Devil. Socrates believed he a guided by a Demon. If these doctors and great men were so superstitious How could you expect More ignorant fathers and mothers to be free from it some neighbors claim to have lived in a haunted House. Others claim to have seen ghosts. The writer never lived in a haunted House nor saw a ghost. Elijah a. Duling Bacon run tells me he saw a ghost one night the crossing Bacon run As you go towards Lafayette at the farm h. W. Duling. There was a foot log across that run there in the Days when . Duling and i used to go and see our. Gals Well he says one night As he returned Home after a Good spark with his Vii fax he got across the foot log at the run and Here stood a Man Young Duling stepped Silis a Iii f to foot. He was minus part his head and his left shoulder and Arm. Daling approached him bravely without dread Joshua did the Warrior and was about to demand who he was and for what purpose he was standing there but As he approached him. The spectre arose perpendicularly towards the Clouds and Slid off in air in a Northeast course and fell again to Earth Ere he got out sight Duling . Duling says he heard him fall to Earth with a great thud As a saw log Duling told his Uncle Dan Dean about it. Dean said he saw the same thing there before. Also . Dean said that after spectre left him. J a big Black dog trotted along him till he got to the turn the Road at Corner when the dog vanished out sight. It got out that a. Big. Black dog seen there at. Naif by. Joseph d. Workman and Robert Brownfeld Are to Balej the dug there one night. The i canine followed their Wagon a piece then vanished out sight. Had two men declared that they saw the Devil there that night they would have been believed a general belief among the timid prevailed that a ghost haunted that run crossing and were to be Fiere after night especially alone. Gradually the belief that there is a ghost to be seen there has died a War. And f hear no More Bei gift there. The writer has crossed there Manv dark nights and never saw i a ghost. The gho to that e. L. Duling saw there ago is attributed to an illusion vision by tarrying too Long with i he had sleep. Sonic other opinions prevailed among our fathers and mothers and have come Down to us. Viz that a Man has one rib less than a woman that there is a certain jew still alive who has wandered through the world Toire the crucifixion Christ. The followers Mohammed believe that his Cokin hang suspended in the air Between two Load stones.
