THG MASKED It ALL.
An Ancient Legend of SpanishYToIcdo.
On one of the narrowest and steepest
streets of Toledo there stood, a crreat
many years ago, :i fine old Moorish house.
Over the portal was the cont of sinus of
trie noble family of Verano. It was a
most imposing looking building and \v;is
built on the Moorish plan, Throujjh the
open, delicate, Iron sciollwwrk of the
gates a large patio or eourt yard could be
seen, with a fountain playing in the miil-
dle and beautiful flowers growing all
around. For many years but few visi-
tnrs were allowed to enter, for the masler
of the house was very old and very feebla
and saw hardly any one but the priest
and the doctor. The old Count de Ver-
ano was a long time shuffling off*t.his
mortal coil; every now and then there
was a report that he was sinking fast but
lie revived in a marvelous way after each
attack and lingered on an on, until peo-
ple whispered to each other that he must
be either the Wandering Jew himself or
else had committed some awful crime for
which he was doomed to live on forever.
There was one britrbt thing in all that
dreary house and that was the grand-
daughter of the old Count. She was 16
years old and as pretty and as sweet a
little fairy as ever was seen in Toledo.
She was the life of the house, and not a
creature in it, from the old major domo
to the groom in the stable, but would
willingly have died for the little Countess
Teresita de Verano. She was small and
slight, and agile, with tiny hands and
feet. Her head was beautifully placed
upon her shoulders, and her great black
i-vcsmade a curious contrast to the masses
of rich brown hair which were cottled
round and round the small, well-shaped
head. Her mother had been one of the
beauties of the Seville and had died
when she was born. Her father lived
with the old Count in tills dreary old
palace in the Calle de la Trinidad.' Hut
nothing could sadden the spirits of Ter-
esita. Her laugh was like a peal of bells,
and she had such coaxing, wheedling
ways that even the solemn visaged old
major domo could not refuse her any-
thing. Her fatherwas a man of a good de'al
of rctinement and taste, and adorned bU
little daughter to her heart's content; all
the more that she resembled in many
ways the mother, whom he had loved so
dearly. Time passed and at last the old
Count de Verano died and his son lived
quietly with his daughter In the dreary
old palace. The term of mourning hav-
ing expired, all Toledo was electrified by
the news that the Count de Verano WM
going to give a masked ball to Introduce
lor.>»it» i,,io «.w.iuiv M.uiv viiais had
passed since many of his old friends
liad crossed the threshold, aud great was
the curiosity of those who were fortunate
enough to be invited. None of the guests
refused, for the house was said to be
haunted and all were anxious to see what
the old palace looked like inside. Besides
that, a masked ball was quite a new
thing to the good people of Toledo.
The evening came and the old palace
was brilliant with a thousand lights. The
suites of rooms were hung with choice
old tapestries, and the handsome silver
and gold chandeliers bristled with light
and reflected a thousand brilliant colors.
The hall was hung with old armors and
the broad marble staircase was thronged
with people going up and coining down
and all were dressed In dominoes and
masks. At midnight they were all to
unmask. The guests were more or leas
etartled therefore at meeting, corning
down stairs, a man dressed entirely in
armor, with vizor down, who wore
neither domino nor mask. He seemed to
know no one, for he was met several times
iu different parts of the house and always
alone. The clanking of his armor and
his sword could be heard a long way off,
and as he came near, people involuntar-
ily stepped aside, so chilly did the air be-
come as he strode past, regardless of
everything and of everybody. It had
been arranged between the Count and
his daughter that they themselves should
not dress in dominoes and masks. Don
Jayme thought Teresita too young for
that kind of thing, and they stood to-
gether at the end of the long drawing-
room to receive their guests. Teroita
looked very lovely in her white gauze
draperies, and she had no lack of part-
ners for the different dances which varied
the entertainment. Her simplicity and
gaiety charmed all heart", and the know-
ing duennas prophesied that she would
be a great success. Her father's heart
swelled with pride as he heard these
comments upon his darling. The only
thing which disturbed every one's enjoy
ment was the entrance from time to time
of the man iu armor. He walked straight
through the different rooms, paying no
attention to any one, and the fun and
conversation died away as he passed.
1'eople whispered to each other and won-
dered who the strange knight might be.
Some suggested there was a story of the
house beini; na.inted and perhaps this
was the ghost, others that the armor was
only put on for the evening and that the
knight had made a mistake and thought
it was a fancy dress ball instead of a
masked one. In short, all sorts of ideas
and suggestions were made. Teresita
was t«o full of enjoyment and delight
to care about the knight at first but even
she could not help noticing the disturbed
looks of the people about her and the
dend silence which fell upon them all as
the knight passed through the rooms at
long intervals. She determined to find
out something more about the man. She
went all through the rooms until she
found Don Jayme.
"Padre mio," she said, "who is the curi-
ous caballero dressed in armor, who keeps
walking abeut all by himsell ? "
"What caballero?" said Don Jayne,
turning pale. "1 have seen no one dressed
"Seen no one dressed in armor V" cried
Teresita turning round to look at her
father. "Wlieio are your eyes, dear
papa? We have ill seen him and I urn
sure you can heir his sword and his
armor rattle and clatter a mile off. Why !
there—there he is coming through the
door now! Don't you see him? Can't
you hear him? "
Don Jayme said nothing, but turned
white to the very lips. He neither saw
nor heard anything himself, but lie new
that the appearance of the ghost of the
house portended no particular good, but
rather disaster. At last, like a transforma-
tion scene, every one bloomed out in gay
costumes and bright colors, and lent addi-
tional brilliance to the already beautiful
rooms. The servants handed round wine
and cakes, chocolate and ices, and the air
was filled with the hum of many voices.
Everybody peemed happy and contented
aud began nibbling their cakes and sip-
ping wine. But after the first taste, the
guests looked at each other. First one
then the other put down his glass with a
face of disgust. What could be the mat-
ter with the wine? It looked like a rich,
heavy Burgundy, but It tasted like blood.
AX the moment that one of the guests
was saying "it tasted like blood," the
knight in armor entered the room. In a
second the voices were hushed and all
gazed silently at the figure which looked
neither to the right nor to the left, but
strode across the floor as though he were
iu a hurry. Hut Teresita with a courage
unusual for so young a girl, quietly left
tier sent and placing herself in front of
the figure said, "Senor Caballero, will
you not unmask now, and join us in our
The figure did not answer, and the
jruesis shuddered and covered their eyes
when they saw what the young girl was
doing, but when they looked again the
Sgare had gone and Teresita lay on the
Hour in a dead faint. She very soon re-
covered her senses, however, made light
of the whole matter and was among the
gayest of the whole company for the rest
of the evening. "So much for trying to
be polite to people whom you do not
know," she said laughing. ''But the man
is very ^ange. 1'erhaps he is mid,
Don Jayme had made no answer when
Teresita said that the knight in armor
was coming at the door. He could see
nothing nor could he hear anything, but
lie had heard enough of tbe ghost in his
boyhood to remember that those whose
attention the ghost wished to attract were
the very persons who were both blind
and deaf M far as he was concerned. The
ghost was re.-tli/s.i about something, and
he must find out what it was. As soon as
he could leave his guests unnoticed, he
made his way to the room of Juan, the
old major domo of the house. He had
been iu the family ever since Don Jayme
was a baby, and was a most valuable and
trustworthy servant. Don Jayme was
startled when he saw him. For the first
time in his life Juan looked frightened.
Don Jayme had never in his remem-
brance look like that. Poor Juan's lips
were white and trembling, his eyes
seemed startling out of their sockets as if
they were straining to see something
that was far off. When he saw his mas-
ter enter the room he held up both hands
and said in a frightened whisper: "My
master what is the ghost walking for?
You have doubtless seen him." And he
seemed anxious for JJon Jayme's answer.
"No Juan, I can neither see nor hear
him, but the senorita has, and so have all
Old Juan fell back in his chair and
gave a groan. "You must hear him, Se-
uor Conde. He is coming along the pas-
sage now, can't you hear his armor creak-
init his sword clanking over the stones?
There he is just passing the door, can't
you sue him ? "
Don Jayme did his best. He listened
carefully, even eagerly, and strained his
eyes to see the shadow of a man in armor.
Joan saw that he was making a great
effort and groaned again.
"No," said Don Jayme after a few min-
utes pause, "no, I can hear and .-ee noth-
"Oh, Dios mio," cried poor Juan, "how
can I convince ihe Senor Conde? Come
into the hall and see if the armor is all
They went together into the hall. Ap-
parently all the armor was there, but to
make quite sure they counted the pieces
hanging up. Almost at the further end
of tlie halt one complete set of armor was
They turned and looked at each other.
Don Jayme's face was now as white us
Juan's and he whispered :—
"What does it mean, Juan, the ghost's
"It means—it means misfortune," re-
plied Juan, also In a whisper, "There he
is coming towards us again. Surely you
can see him now, scnor? "
"No," replied Don Jayme, "I see noth-
"He is making enough noise to waken
the dead;" muttered Juan to himself.
"Don Jayme must be deaf not to hear
While Juan and his master were trying
to fathom the mystery of the ghost, the
guests were beginning to feel uncomfort-
able at remaining any longer iu a house
that had the reputation of being haunted
The small hours had already begun, and
who could tell how many more ghosts
might be seen that night? The guests
stirred uneasily and made inquiries lor
the host. Teresita did her best to amuse
them and begged them to stay for a few
more dances. But her efforts were una-
vailing, and seeing that they were really
in earnest she pressed them no more but
sent a servant to find her father. The
curious events of the evening had made a
very unpleasant impression even on her
young mind. She was, therefore, not as-
tonished that her guests should wish to
to leave a house where they had been
witnesses of such strange things. Dor
Jayme, the moment that he had seen the
last of his guests, returned with all speed
to Juan with whom he consulted as to
what they should do to get rid of the
"If he would only go with the guests,
how glad we should all be,' 1 sighed old
The servants wore frightened almost
out of their 8enses,_arid ? at c '°*e together
in the kitchen, talking in whispers, and
shivering whenever they heard the clat-
tering of the sword along the stone floor
as the knight strode about the house
Teresita sat for a time alone in the draw-
ing room where she had had 30 imieh en-
joyment and daneing. She was not at al 1
tired and would joyfully have gone or
dancing fur another two hours, if the
guests had not been so frightened by the
knight and armor and gone away together
like a flock of sueep. She wondered
where her father was and why he turned
so pale aud did not answer when she
pointed out to him the knight in armor
coining Into the room. At last she go'
tired sitting by herself. There was (
long pier glas-, at one end of the drawing
room and as she rose she saw herself re-
flected in it. She looked almost as freal
as when the evening began and she
walked up to the glass auU stood admir-
ing herself for some time. At last she
began to humming a gay bolero air and
involuntarily her feet kept time to the
music, till she found herself dancing
to her own reflection In the glass. Sh
daucwdaml capered till she sank exhausted
on a sola. She rnther wondered why no
one hud come up all this time, to put ou
the lights and shut up the house. Shi
listened attentively but not a sound could
she hear of any one stirring, excepting
occasionally the tramp and clatter ol the
knight iu armor as he made his rounds.
She had become so used to the sounc
that it did not disturb her in the least.
The servants were too frightened to rupyi
from the kitchen unless they all went to
gcther, and Dun Jayme and Juan wer
talking together in the old major domo':
room. Juan confessed to feeling nerv
ous, because lie Bald that had he not bee'
told by his late master that the ghost ha
walked when Don Jayme's grandfather
was away fighting in the wars against
lie Moors. The ghost appeared then for
wo days and three nights, in the very
iiiit of mail. At the enu of the three
days the news came that Don Andres had
jeen killed in battle and the ghost had
dissapeared as suddenly as he had come.
"Have you seen him before to-night,
Juan ? '' inquired Don Jayme.
"No, Senor," was the reply. "I was
arrying some candles into the drawing
oom before the company came when I
met him ou the stairs. I thought at first
hat perhaps it some senor might have
:ome early by mistake, or that perhaps
ou had diessed up in that fashion to as-
anish your guests. Hut soon afterward
8iiw you come out of your room dressed
s you are now, and then it flashed across
le what it was. And ever since it has
leen marching up and down the house.
He seems to have finished his rounds for
o-night at any rate, for I hear his foot-
teps no more."
Just then Teresita, who had been hunt-
UK all over the house for her father,
pened the door, and seeing her father,
he immediately began talking about the
tall and the guests, and finally of the
man in armor. ''1 think he must be tired
y this time she said, "for he has been
valking for four entire hours, but I do
ot hear him now, and although I have
een all over the house to find you, I
ave neither seen nor heard him."
All this excitement had tried Don
ayme very much.
"Let us go and have a glass of wine,"
he said, and refresh ourselves before we
;o to bed," and led the way to the dining
Juan followed his master, poured him
ut a glass of wine and retired quite sat-
stied that the ghost's watch was over for
Teresita had stayed behind for a few
minutes to give some directions to her
maid, but joined her father In tlie dining-
00m almost immediately after Juan had
eft him. He was sitting In his usual seat
,t the head of the table, apparently sip-
>lug his wine, for his glass was half
mpty and he held it in his hand, which
was resting on the table. Teresita had
larilly time to more than notice this, for
ihe was startled by seeing the knight iu
minor standing erect and immovable be-
Ind her father's chair,
"Why, there is our friend the knight,
mpa," slie said, "standing directly be-
lind you. If you turn yowr head just the
east little bit, you cannot help seeing
him." But her father taking no notice
of her remark, she touched him. A shriek
resounded through the house, bringing
all the servants tumbling over each other
n their haste to get into the room. Don

For days and wepks Teresita's life hung
>n a thread but at last she recovered.
Her nay spirits were gone, her face was
pinched and worn «nd her hair was per-
fectly white. It is said that one of the
sweetest faced of the nuns in the days
when the church of Ste Maria la Blanc i
had a convent attached to It, was named
Teresica de Verano. And tlie old house
n the Calle de la Trinidad is empty and
supposed to be haunted still by the
Knight in Armor.

knowledge of epidemic disease, and the
preventive methods now thought to be
best, in connection with city sanitation.

J. Gauzhorn : Grape-rot a perplexing
question. The rot set in last yasw in Au-

Young vines do not rot as well as the
older. Think the cause is want of drain-

set in. Near my house, where the sub-
soil is gravel, the rot has not appeared.
Mr. Sage who has his grapevines on a

starvation. Disease can be brought

A. A. Crozier: We cannot say that the

Instances were cited, where full fruit

fruitgrowers have in bringing their fruit
to the Express Go's office iu the very best
and attractive manner. |Xo wonder that
they feel indignant if their fruit is
handled with undue haste or if loafers
are allowed to sit on the full crates and
hammer them with their feet or play

were cited where fruit growers met with
losses from rough handling of their fruit.

A Great Victory
A Terrible Case of Scrofula
" In the winter of 1879 I was attacked with
Scrofula In one of the most aggravating forms.
At one time I bad no less than thirteen large
abscesses over and around my neck and throat,
continually exuding an offensive mass of
bloody matter disgusting to behold, and
almost Intolerable to endure. It Is Impossible
to fully describe my sufferings, as tbe case
was complicated with Chronic Catarrh. After
three years of misery, having been treated by
three physicians, I was worse than ever.
Finally, on the recommendation of W. J.
Iluntley, druggist, of Lockport, I was Induced
to try Hood's Sarsaparilla. And now, after
having taken twelve bottles, within tbe last
twelve months, the scrofulous eruptions have
entirely ceased, and the abscesses have all
disappeared, except the unsightly scars, which
are daily becoming 'smaller by degrees, and
beautifully less.' I do not know what It may
have done for others, but I do know that In
my case, Hood's Sarsaparilla has proved an
effective specific indeed. As an evidence of
my gratitude I send these facts unsolicited,
and I am ready to verify the authenticity or
this cure, by personal correspondence with
any one who doubts it." CHAKI.KS A. KOB-

The Saline Observer jjives place to the
following, which, by the way, is only a
rumor, as near as we can ascertain.- ''It
is rumored that a move is mi foot at Aim
Arbor, among some of the democratic
politicians, to establish a democratic pa-
per at that place, design log it to be an ex-
ponent of the county democracy as well
as a thorough county paper- Jt is to be a
7 column eight puge sheet and will be lui-
ni8hed at $1,50 per year. As Ann Arbor
is already supplied with three democratic
papers, this proposed scheme u ill have
hard work in gaitiinn been allowed
to permeate the system. Kadi pimple, sty,
boil, skin disorder and sense of unnatural
laMltnds, i' languor, is one of Nature's
warnings of the consequences of neglect.
In the only remedy that can be relied upon,
In all rases, to eradicate the taintof hered-
itary aimasa and the Bpecial corruptions
of the blood. It is the only alterative
that is sufficiently powerful to thoroughly
cleanse the system of Scrofulous and
Mercurial impurities and the pollution
of Contagious Diseases. It also neu-
tralizes the poisons left by Diphtheria
and Scarlet Fever, and enables rapid
recuperation from the enfeeblement and
debility caused by these diseases.
Myriads of Cures \
Achieved by AYER'S SAKSAPARILLA, ia
the past foil v years, are attested, and there
is no blood disease, at all possible of cure,
that will not yield to it. Whatever tha
ailments of this class, and wherever found,
from the scurvy of the Arctic circle to the
"veldt-sores" of South Africa, this rem-
edy has afforded health to the sufferers
by whom it was employed. Druggists
everywhere can cite numerous cases, with-
in their personal knowledge, of remark-
able cures wrought by it, where all other
treatment had bceu unavailing. People
will do well to
Trust Nothing Else
than AYER'S SAKSAPARII.I.A. Numerous
crudo mixtures are offered to the public
as "blood purifiers," which only allure
the patient •with the pretense of many
cheap doses, and with which it is folly to
experiment while disease is steadily be-
coming more deep-seatod and difficult of
cure. Some of these mixtures do much
lasting harm. Bear in mind that the only
medicine that can radically purify the
Vitiated blood is

Owners of poor sidewalks better look

taken up this business in earnest.
