Dear Editor, At certain times my house was haunted by what we supposed to be a ghost. My folks could see lights around the house and hear rocks falling on the roof, when I was not at home. So Friday night, the 11th I got on my mare and rode away to get somebody to help me haul hay the next day. I left home about sundown. I suppose the ghost thought I would be gone all night. I never dreamed of seeing a ghost and returned home shortly after dark. We went to bed early and about my dogs made such a noise as though they were tearing some one or an animal up. I got up and saw something like a lantern. I sat down by the window and watched it about an hour, and the light got worse and “more numerous.” So I said to my wife; “I am going to put on my boots and see what it is.” Then I went out and hissed my dogs, and the ghosts ran like good fellows. I took after them, halloing? at my dogs. I ran one of them into a thorn bush, but he got away before I could get there. I ran one of them about one hundred yards and gave up the chase. The next morning I tracked them some distance. I believe the tracks to have been made by human beings. (I) think from the sized tracks one wore No. 8 or 9 shoes and the other No. 6 or 7. That is the kind of ghost that has been scaring my family when I was absent. W.M. ARMSTRONG
