A PHANTOM PLOWMAN.
In the northwestern corner cf
lower Marion township, Mont-o-oinerv
countv. Pa., a terrible
hubbub lias been raided by the
appearance of a phantom far
mer, who is nightly seen plow
ing a lield. The apparation was
lirst discovered about three
weeks ajo by a farm hand who
was reLiriiiiiiX late from court
iug a pretty maid. Emerging
from a wooded pathway, that
(skirted an old forest for miles,
this rustic was staitled to hear
a sepulehtnl voice commanding
a team to halt. lie looked in
vain about the place for a mo
ment or two, and was about
movintr on aain when the same
saound fell on his ear. A shiv
er crept down his spinal column
as he heard the creak inj; of an
unseen harness, and this terror
was far from being allayed by
tiie whinny of a horse almost
directly before him. At that
moment the new moon stole
over a neighboring tree tops,
and in its mystv light the rural t
swain saw the phantom, farmer.
It was clearly outlined against
the dark back ground and its
two hands held in steady grusp
the projecting handles of a
plow. Before it marched a pair
of spirited hor.-cs, dimly out
lined in the ini.-ty light, their
heads erect, their eyes Hashed
fire as they moved hastily along.
The young man waited another
moment to reasure himself, and
was about to tajo to his heels
when plowman, horses ami plow
suddenly vanished. Then he.
too, lied in wild alarm.
At Silas Ihowns corner gro
eery on the night
this the ou::g man.
Cooper ' y name told the thrill
.lory. I .town, like main ot
on tigers in the store, sntii-
ed incredulously, and advi.ed
(oopci to "reform." A discus
ftion arose, in which ho! words
wore exchanged and se veral bets
were made that Cooper was
drawing the long bow.
upshot of the matter was that
the crowd adjourned to the al-
leged siene of the gho.-ts opera-
tions to verify or (improve Coop-
They not long to v.ait.
Without the noii-o that had
warned Cooper the night before,
the dhantom farmer appealed
before the .-even men that sat
upon the fence, or to be more j head for a moment and thought

from a height of more than sev
en feet from the ground, indi
cating that the spectral granger
was taller than the average hu
man kind. About his body
which could not well be traced
theie was a j hofphoreseent
glow which dazzled the eyes of
the turilied spectators and
shown far ahead of the steadily
inovii g horsi s. Ilia p'ow he
leaned on seemed of skeleton
frame, but it tos.-ed oil the toft
moitt t-aith as easily as a steam
er turns the river naves. On
he came, the horses fceming to
exhale lire; their lit ads erect
and aching, and foe t falls as iirni
and clear as the watchers ever
heard. At the corner of the
iield they turned obediently at a
word from their spectral driver,
and again passed befors the
a frightened spectators who
thereupon lied in haste.
On the following morning a
crowd of rustics determined to
go to the field i n 1 see whether
any trace of the farmer could
be found. As they came in
s'ght of the enclosure one of the
number exclaimed in astonish
ment. "I'll be durned if the
thing doesn't plow sure
enough!" He was right. One
field had been gone
over, evidently by no novice.
The furrows were not quite so
broad as those made by an ordi
nary plowman, but they were
less ragged and more deep and
were as straight as the most ex
perienced eye could make them.
A day or two afterwards the
same group went to the lield
again, and this time found that
the phantom had finished his
work. The owner of the field
was one of the number and he
took a solemn oath that he had
net turned a sod in the enclosure.--St
