This ghoet story Is contributed by a
correspondent of an English mugazlne:
“ Wycollar Hall, near Csfiie. was long
the seat of the Cunllffes of Bllllugtou.
They were noted persons in their time,
but evil days came, and their ancestral
estates passed out of their hands. In
[ the days of the commonwealth their
! loyalty cost them dear, and ultimately
they retired to Wycollar with a rem
nant only of their once extensive prop
erty. About 1819 the last of the fami
ly passed away, nnd the hall Is now a
mass of ruins. Little hut the antique
fireplace remains entire, and even the
room alluded to In the following
legend cannot now be Identified. Tra
dition says that once every year a
specter horseman visits Wycollar Hall.
He Is attired In the costume of the
early Stuart period, and the trappings
of his horse are of a most uncouth de
"On the evening of his visit the
weather Is always wild and tempestu

lonely roads, and the residents of the
district do not venture out of their
cottages. When the wind howls loud
est the horseman can be heard dash
ing up the road at full speed, and. a ft

The rider then dismounts and makes
his way up the broad oaken stairs Into
one of the rooms of the house. Dread
ful screams, as from a woman, arc
then heard, which soon subside Into
groans. The horseman then makes his
appearance at the door, at once mounts
his steed and gallops off.
“ Ills body can be seen through by
those who may chance to be present;
his horse appears to be wild with rage,
and Its nostrils stream with fire. The
tradition Is that one of the Cunllffes
murdered his wife In that room and
that the specter horseman Is the ghost
of the murderer, who Is doomed to pay
an annual visit to the home of his
victim. She Is said to have predicted
the extinction of the family, which,

an editor and critic at a Philadelphia

brought home to me at one of the exhi

“ Passing from picture to picture, I
overheard many criticisms. Thus a
lady in a rich gown said:
“ ‘What n superb portrait of a young
girl! It should certainly win the Car

gown was made by Paquin.’
"A fat. red nosed man In a fur lined

“ 'What shoulders! What arms!’ he
said. T bet anything the Jury gives

“ And half the throng, departing, said:
“ 'The picture tn the last room Is tho
best. No. we didn't see It—couldn’t get
to It. In fact—but It draws far and
