The light is easily diseernabh' in an easterly direction from Captain McDonald's house and that gentleman and a party of visitors Htartcd from his ranch one night recently to locate the ghostly glim. They traveled a considerable distance, but as they still seemed to be as far a way from the source as ever, gave the investigation lip.
