Do yoa believe in ha'nts and
ha'nted bouses? If you do not
there be lome in Hollis that say
you can be shown. For it is
known by these presents that
there is a ha'nted house in «ir
fair little city. It is a residence
house and quite a large number
of families have tenanted it and
from some of these families ;t
has leaked out that the house is
woefully and irreparably ha'nt-
It is thought best in this ar-
ticle to refrain from mention of
the place in manner that will de-
signate it individually, for the
owner might not take kindly to
that and come around a&d give
us a little entirely unneeded in-
structions in the gentle art of
cussin'. Possibly he might do
worse, and we propose to take no
chances. But there is a haint
there sometimes 'way in the mid-
dle of the night. As yet he has
not got to the state of visibility,
contenting himself to remain in
the noise class of ha'nts. Now,
we de desire to be taken very
seriously. This is no joke be-
cause of the many ha'nts that
hang around the streets and do
all sorts of foolish thing. These
latter sort of ha'nts we have
with us constantly. The above
mentioned ha'nt rattles the doors
mysteriously, raps on the win-
dow pane, walks over the floor
with faint footsteps, heard but
not seen, passes through closed
doors, in short does all the things
a ha'nt is supposed to do. The
various tenants of the place dis-
like to pay full rent and have to
divide room with such a charac-
ter, hence they soon move away.
Knowing the general yet so un-
fortunate disbelief in the said
ha'nts they say very little about
it and then some unsuspecting I
family moves in and the show 1
has to be pulled off again. But
some of them have been inter-
viewed in regard to this and they
tell it straight. They say that i
when the ha'nt gets out for busi-
ness there is a poor time for en-
joyment ahead for the human
residents of the house. When
the ha'nt makes a noise the folks
turn all cold up and down the (
back and hearts go thumpity-j
thump in the chest. Eyes pop
open wide and stare around in j
vain. Sleep goes away on a va-
And thus it is that Hollis has a'
ha'nted house. The neighbor-
hoods of old with their headless
visitors have nothing on us.
The old time house down the
stairway of which rolled invis-
ible chains is checkmated 3
house. Hurrah for us!
