Ghosts are numerous. They can d
found in all sections of tho country.
There la not a Tillage nor a deserted
country houso nor a railroad bridge but
has its ghost But tho ghosts aro not all
confined to tho country by any means.
There havo been several in Kansas City
that havo gained extensivonotoriety on
account of their many visitations,
and tho parts of tho city in which they
aro wont to disport themselves aro still
eyed with suspicion and looked upon
aakanco by the inhabitants of Belvmere
Hollow, Hick's Hollow and other por
tions of the city thickly settled by the
descendants of Ham.
The oldest, the original ghost tbat is
most vividly in the memory of the su
perstitious and is most often the topio
of grewsome whispers among the people
mentioned, waUced the levee between
Main street and Broadway 12 years ago.
One winter s night, tho fctory goes, a
man was lying in wait for an enemy
on tho levee. In his hand he clutched
ponderous doublo barreled shotgun
loaded with nails and slugs. He saw a
man walkinz down tho levee. In the
dim, flickering light he thought he rec
ognized his enemy. Ho raised his gun,
fired and hurried away. Tho next day
he read in tho papers that ld3 brother's
body had been found on tho levee, hor
ribly mangled and torn. Tho mnrdcrer
winced, bet kept his secret. Then the
doad brother's ghost begmi to walk. Ev-
crv nieht, at the eamo hour of the
shooting, it could bo seen cn tho levee.
Each time it would walk btraight to the
spot where tho body had fallen. Then
tho ghost would fall, go through a death
strogglo and disappear. It kept this up
for years, and there aro these who say it
docs it stilL
Tho second healthy, well developed
ghost disported itself in tho ruins of the
old Santa Fo Stago Coach company's of
fice at Second and Main streets in 1S86,
So generally known did it become that
often largo crowds would congregate and
await tho appearance of the nocturnal
visitor. Early one evening a young man
who wished to investigate a little went
into tho ruins. When ho emerged from
them an hour later, ho found a large
crowd standing on tho opposite side of
tho street, near the jail, watching for
ghosts. Somo ono in the crowd, thinking
that tho young man had been playing
ghost, threw a brick at tho investigator.
striking him on the head. Ho fell sense
less with a gaping wound in his head.
Tho Santa Fo ghost has not been seen
In 1S87 there was a story afloat that
at 12 o'clock each night a ghostly cable
train glided down tho incline between
Walnut and Main streets and disappear
ed into space. In tho grip car, guiding
tho train, wa3 the ghost of a gnpman
who had died a short time before, after
having been insane for somo time, the
result of grief over tho fact that his train
had run down and killed a pedestrian.
Crowds congregated at the junction
nichtlr to seo tho stranco sight. For the
most part they went away disappointed,
altbongh there was plenty who declared
they had seen "it.
Another storv, in which a ghost was
never seen, but which smacked strongly
of spooks, was tho Conway murder on
East Eighteenth street, between Oak and
Locnst, in 1SS5. Mrs. Conway, a young
woman, and her little girl wcro beaten
to death with a coupling pin. The mur
derer or murderers wcro never caught.
Suspicion pointed toward two men, but
thcro was no evidence. Both of them
afterward died horrible deaths ono of
tho danders and tho other of cancer.
Tho ghost of tho victims never walked
openly, but that section of tho city was
given a wido berth by tho trao believ
ers for inanv months afterward.
Last, but not least, were tho ghosts ot
Clark mid Jones, tho men hung for mur-
dcrinK Mme. Wright m 1893. Theso
ghosts materialized in tho jails, ono at
Independence and ono in lvausas mry.
Tho scaro lasted for somo weeks, and
tho negro prisoners wero thrown into a
stato of terror by any straugo sounds.
One night, when the jail was m a stato
of comnarativc quiet, a arunKeu pris
oner, who had just been brought in, had
ui attack of "limiams.' By some
stranco coiucnteuco no was pmcvu m
tLo cell once occupied by Clark, and the
prisoners soon located tho groaning of
the unfortunate man. ino negroes, not
knowinc that the cell was occupied, sup
posed that tho uoiso was mado by a do-
parted spirit, and all started to howling
with tho "ghost. " xno enect was some
thing that can bo imagined better than
it can bo described. Sinco tho Clark
riiost left tho jail Kansas City has been
bereft of spirits, and Belvidcro Hollow
is breathing nioro easily than it has lor
years. Kansas City Times.

commenced last Monday with Mrs. L.
M. Connlne in the teacher's chair.
Today is thy birthday, darling,
Or would be, if thou wert on earth,
How sadly I count the birthdays
That have passed since thy heavenly
Oh happy, thrice happy spirit,
Born into everlasting rest,
would not, if I could, recall thee
From those fair mansions of the blest.
Yet, if one little, whispered word
Could come to greet my listening ear,
Oh how my raptured heart would thrill,
To feel that sometimes thou wert near.
But, sb, the lips once closed in death,
Forever silent are, and still,
Go loving words they eyer bring
Across the river dark and chill.
I hear the river's rippling wave,
I hear the shadowy boatman's oar,
As one by one the loved ones go.
And they return to me no more.
But when the heavenly morning dawns,
And all earth's shadows flee away,
We'll meet again to part no more,
Through all the bright, eternal day.
To part no more, ob, precious thought,
No tear of sorrow or of pain,
We'll ever ebed in tbat fair land,
Where I shall clasp thy hand again,
Then fare thee well a little while,
For He who doeth all things well,
Hath promised us they shall return,
Who underneath bis shadow dwell.
