An Apnarltion Whlcli Hannta a
The people of Lawrence, an aris
tocratic quarter of recent creation
near Far Rockaway, are mystified
and puzzled by the appearance of a
specter in the belfry of the Metho
dist Episcopal Church. The women
and children have come to regaitl it
as the veritable ghost of a deceased
sexton, and persons of acute imag
ination do not hesitate to declare
that the- have heard the church bell
ring at unseasonable hours. The
men gather in dark places every
night to observe the strange sight
and compare notes as to the proba
ble character of the apparition. It
flits about the belfry in the most
nimble fashion, one time ascending
to the apex of the steeple and at an
other executing a dance on the slant
ing roof. It plays hide and seek in
the lattice work of the bell-room,
enlarging and decreasing in size ac
cording to the angle of observation.
A remarkable thing about it is that
it never appears on a Sunday night.
The story of the strange sight lias
reached several villages, and every
night scores of persons walk or drive
to the vicinity of the Lawrence
Church to verify it. Some of them
declare that the specter has followed
them home and hung around their
residences for hours, like one trying
to revive a broken friendship.
Last Saturday night the strange
figure was more than usually active,
and scores of persons kept their eyes
fixed on it until, benumbed by the
cold, they were driven home. Half
the village declares that at precisely
10 o'clock the bell was tolled, and
the other half is laughing at the su
perstition, as they call it. Immedi
ately after the tolling, three hearty
amens were heard, and then the
specter flattened itself out on the
roof. This was interpreted to be an
attitude of prayer. After a few min
utes there was seen the liveliest
skipping in and out of the lattice
work, and then the phantom ran up
and down the surface of the steeple,
concluding by perching on the top,
and disappearing in the direction of
the graveyard. No person likes to
walk by the edifice alone, and those
who drive pass with all possible
speed. No graveyard goblin ever
created half the excitement. It is
said that one night the sexton found
the bell rope broken, and fearing to
go into the loft no bell was rung, and
the people interpreted the silence to
mean that the prayer-meeting had
been postponed. Next day, to the
surprise of the sexton, the rope was
found inact, and that mystery is still
puzzling all who believe the story.
An old Irishman in the neighbor
hood offered to make an investigation
any night if some one would provide
him with a candle blessed by a priest
of the Catholic Church. There was
none to be had in Lawrence, but one
was procured from Far- Rockaway,
and then the old man of strong faith
was ordered not to dare to go near
the church with his heretical taper.
All sorts of devices are suggested to
arrive at a solution of the illumina
ted mystery, but no person seems to
have the moral courage to put any
plan into execution beyond watching
the adjacent graveyard to see if the
ghost does not rise out of some grave.
The Strongest 3Iau In Xcvarta.
There is a man in Nevada named
Angela Cardelia who claims to be
the strongest man in the world. He
i3 an Italian, aged 3S, and stands
five feet ten inches, weighing 133
pounds. His strength was born
with him, for he had no athletic
training. He differs from other men
chiefly in the osseous structure. Al
though not of unusual size, his
spinal column is much beyond the
ordinary width, and his bones and
joints are made on a similarly largo
and generous scale. lie has lifted a
man of 200 hundred pounds with the
middle finger of his right hand.
The man stood with one foot on the
floor, his arms outstretched, his
hands grasped by two persons to
balance his body. Cardelia then
stooped and placed the third finger
of his right hand under the man's
foot, and with scarcely any percepti
ble effort raised him" to the height
of four feet and deposited him on a
table near at hand. Once two pow
erful men waylaid Cardelia with in
tent to thrash him, but he seized
one in each hand and hammered
them togethor until life was nearly
knocked out of them. His strength
is inherited, for he says his father
was more powerful than himself.

There may still be sometime

that once curled in life, and now
falls stiffly over a sarcophagus.
Broken pillars lie about among an
chors and other symbols of hope
and piety ; railings and yews and mel
ancholy firs are there in brooding
clumps and clusters; and down the
sky, wheiein the sun is emblematic
ally setting, there not infrequentlv
descends a dove, that either bill's
another in descending, or settles
touchingly on the capitals and cu
pola of a classic mausoleum. It
may be a cemetry where the high
waisted lady grieves, with walks
that wind up to temples or down to
other groups of mourners. Often
the scene of woe lies in a grove,
where the faithful Charlotte, in an
enormous hat, comes to deposit a
wreath on the final resting-place of
that restless spirit "Wcrther, over
whose sorrows scarcely a tear has
been shed for fifty yeais, and whose
power to touch the heart of votith
seems to almost have vanished.
"Wherever it may be, cemeterv or
grove, on the banks of the river or
by the wave of the sea, figures and
tombs and landscapes will be a)l
found to be outlined and shaded in
hair, with infinite patience, no little
skill, in a taste as faded and dead as
that of the old samplers that hang
in Yorkshire farm-houses under the
gun, the brass beer-warmer, and the
polished coal-pinchers. In those
old days the days of the flat brooches
sensibility was a fashionable virtue.
Every young lady wept with "Wcr

little volumes one still
finds on book stalls next Shinelv on
"Revelations" and "Whackleton on
"Tubetcular Meningitis." Every
young gentleman claimed to be a

tears over a noble sentiment or a
distressful tale, where now it is more

his teeth. Comhill Magazine.
