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

in armor."

"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,

poor thing."

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

the guests."

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

walking? "'

"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

hat night.

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

[a^MM n-ua iluuil __^____^_^___^__^

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.

Literary Notes.

Nearly a hundred years ago New Eng-

and began to stream out to the Western

Reserve, and founded its llrst colony at

Marietta, Ohio. It is proposed to cele-

brate-the event by a "centennial"' in 1887 :

meanwhile Harper's Magazine takes time

by the forelock, and will give in the Sep-

tember issue a paper on " The Earliest

Settlement in Ohio," with numerous por-

traits of the pioneers and pictures of old

houses. —-

The subject of " Sewage Disposal in

Cities is one of the most important which

the possible approach of cholera brings to

public attention. Dr. J. S. Billings, U. S.

A., has written an eight-page article for

Harper's Magazine, in which is compress-

ed a plain, simple account of the present

knowledge of epidemic disease, and the

preventive methods now thought to be

best, in connection with city sanitation.

It will appear in the September issue.

Wide Awake for August opens with a

fanciful frontispiece by F. H. Lungren,

entitled " In the Sweet o' the Year;' f the

same artist also contributes a line full page

drawing of Burn's " Highland Mary."

The number has some remarkably good

short stories of which dogs and horses are

the heroos; " The Gypsy's Prophecy, 1 ' by

a Virginian author. Miss Anna Lench ;

story by Edmund Collins, and "William-

owned by Wade Hampton, and guilty of

some very astonishing behavior. The first

part is also given of the Hawaiian adven-

ture, " How the Boojums went down the

Crater;" this paper is well illustrated, and

J. Ganziiorn : Marlboros loaded with

berries, brighter than Cuthbert, shape

ary. Cannot compare with Cuthbert.

President Scott: The originator claims

hat Marlboro is earlier than the Cnth-

burt, am inclined to think that they are

a better shipper.

S. Mills: Would always plant Cuthbort

on poor ordinary soil. Brandywine wants

much manure.

E. Baur: Raspberries were a moderate

success with me after the severe winter.

Clean cultivation and wire trellises proved

a success on my small plantation. Grape-

rot seems to do a great deal of damage

E. Baur : We cannot ascribe it to the

think the cause is Phyllasera, which,

by abstracting the sap, lessens the vigor

of the vines, For fungitribes 1 use sul-

phur freely. Chickens should have free

access to the vine-yard. We collect the

diseased grapes and burn them.

Stephen Mills: Have never had any rot,

prune once a year, cultivate shallow, use

plenty of barnyard manure. I believe in

chickens nmnng tlia vine-, they destroy

ants and insects.

J. Gauzhorn : Grape-rot a perplexing

question. The rot set in last yasw in Au-

gust, this 3'ear as soon as berries formed.

Young vines do not rot as well as the

older. Think the cause is want of drain-

age. If the subsoil holds water, rot will

set in. Near my house, where the sub-

soil is gravel, the rot has not appeared.

Mr. Sage who has his grapevines on a

gravelbed, has no rot. Remedy, under-

drainage. In Scio they have natural

drainage, therefore the absence of rot.

Mr. Fuller: We have the best natural

drainage, yet the rot lias reached me and

others on the hills in lower town.

Mr. J. D. Baldwin: Believe in bagging.

Grupebugs cost $2 per 1,000. Even my

Wyoming rot. Derived most benefit

from distant planting. Grapevines are

generally planted too near. My neighbor

0ac!a vines nearly all used up by the rot,

although he has perfect drainage.

Mr. Goodridge: The cause of disease in

plants is two-fold. Either gluttery or

starvation. Disease can be brought

about by wrong improper culture.

A. A. Crozier: We cannot say that the

potatoc-bug came by starving or over-

feeding the soil. The curculio is not

present In Scio localities, nor the apple-

worm. Diseases in grapes are generally

caused by fungi.

Mills: There is something in the soil.

Salt your plum trees with three gallons

of salt per tree and you will get plums.

Mr. J. J. Parshall described the damage

of locusts among pear trees.

The treatment of our berry crates by

the Express Company was discussed,

Instances were cited, where full fruit

crates and return crates received an un-

necessary harsh treatment. Very few

people are aware of the care and anxiety

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

among the crates and upset them. Cases

were cited where fruit growers met with

losses from rough handling of their fruit.

The agent Mr. Ames came in and after

promising to do his best to correct abuses

the motion to address the head office in

regard to these abuses was indefinitely

postponed. All were glad to see Mr.

Ames, whose genialty and good will to-

ward the members of our society was

recognized, lie said that this fruit busi-

ness was a source of considerable income

to his company.

It was generally conceded that the

handling of so many crates requires

prompt attention by the company and its

many employees. Those that had taken

pains to watch the transportation of our

fruit commended especially the careful

handling by Charles Godfrey and his

hired man Sanford Lane, both strong

young men.

Mr. Baldwin had observed that dead

peach trees from 5—10 years old, begin

Sec. Fish, after au Intimate acquaintance

he waa "the most scrupulously truthful man

one of the most temperate of men, aud re-

ports to the contrary were groundless.

That he had little sense of the value of

must be admitted, but no one questions his

honesty. His bearing under adversity and

His character was as grand and as simple

by a band of oak leaves; and below hung

two sheathed swords, crossed. Above and

much taste. A large cross composed en-

A Great Victory

A Terrible Case of Scrofula

Cured by

Hood's Sarsaparilla

" 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-

This statement is confirmed by W. J. Hunt-

cure a great victory for Hood's Sarsaparilla.

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.

Ayer's Sarsaparilla

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 \


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

Saturday the horse of John Taylor, of

Northfield, became frightened while be-

Owners of poor sidewalks better look

taken up this business in earnest.

A team belonging to Jacob Pfeiffer, of
