Recently while in conversation with a young man who strongly believes in the supernatural, the conversation drifted on "haunted houses." The NEWS' representative representative smiled at the man's earnestness and seeing that we were the least bit credulous on the subject, he remarked: "I notice you smile at what I say and evidently don't believe that a place can be haunted, bnt when I relate to yon some facts whereof I know what I am talking about, you may, perhaps, be induced induced to change rour mind. I have seen others who were just as strong unbelievers, unbelievers, but when I had finished telling them what I personally had experienced they changed and came round to my views on this subject." The reporter in order to set the man's mind at^aso said, "Ob, yes, I know there are some places that are haunted, bnt 1 don't believe there are any such places in this city," believing that this would in a measure mollify his feelings toward us. "Yes, right in this city," replied the man, "there are haunted houses I know to my own knowledge." Within-two squares of the Court House, there is a certain brick house, that is badly haunted by spirits. Whether they are good or evil spirits I don't know, only I know that the house is haunted as I have it direct from the lips of one of the tenants." tenants." "What?" asked the reporter, "wonld you have me believe that there is a haunted house in Lebanon ?" "Yes, and I was in it a few nights ago, bat to be honest with yon, I saw nothing, but I had a lengthy interview with the family and if I give you a few facts I want you to take them cum grano salis." "The head of the family," continued thn man, "told mo that under no circumstances circumstances could his wife be prevailed upon to live in the house, ao thoroughly is she convinced that it i* haunted. The tenant tenant told me rather than live in the boose ho would go to the poor house. At night time the most mysterious noises conld be heard, deep moaning, a crash on the stairs, loud knocking, rapping, etc. The affair became so annoying that finally the family threw up the lease and moved ont of the house. One n ight the child in the crib cried out -that the cover of the bed was being pulled off and when the father went to the bed the child accused the parents, when they were in another ro*m. On another occasion occasion while the family was at supper a crash was heard as if one of the windows had been broken, bnt ou going to the place nothing was seen ont of place. Noises on the stairs were heard, doors were jammed and the mysterious noises- continued in such a manner that finally the house was vacated."
