THE SUNLAJf CRITIC, ALLENTOWN PA., NOVEMBER 11, 1888. "SIE HAT HEXA KEKNA." A PENNSYLVANIA GERMAN WITCH, WHO DIED IN LANCASTER .COUNTY RECENTLY. What the People Ilelicvcd Her Capa ble ef Biting and How She lived Thi Ilelief for Her Own Advantage. A Queer Story of Nineteentn Century Superstition. A few days ago there died in thecounty of Lancaster, near Reinholdsville, an old woman who was known far and wide as a "bexa frau," and whom not a few saw consigned to mother earth with feelings of infinite relief. They cared not so much what had become of her immortal part, now that she had gone to set'le with the fellow who, they were fully assured, bad bad a mortgage on her soul for half a cent nry, as for the fact that she was dead at last and past the power .of working them the harm they had always believed her fully capable of. A correspondent furnishes the subjoined facts pertaining to this strange woman's life, and the reader will find it as interesting as it appears incredible: Barbara Fisher was nearly 00 years old and bad lived alone in a rude hut in the mountains few miles from Reinholdsville for more than sixty years. The belief in witches and the power of certain persons to drive them away still prevails to a surprising degree among theslmpleOerman farmers of Lancaster, and Mother Fisher was one of the most frequently consulted of many of the "bexa wiver" who yet abound thereabouts. The writer saw Mother Fisher two years ago in her hut. She was then aotive and apparently physically strong, but much bent and wrinkled. Her hair was as white as snow, and long white hairs grew from her chin in such profusion as to almost give them the digaity of a beard. Her eyes were as bright and sharp as a hawk's, and altogether she was a most striking person to look at a typical witch herself, and, in fact, she possessed the power, according to the belief of the people lu her community, of bewitching her neighbors, their cattle, their wells or what she chose, a qualification that made her an object of geat fear to them as well as of veneration. It was during the writer's visit to ' that peculiar community that be had an extraordinary Illustration of the credulity and superstition of Its people. A well-to-do farmer had brought suit before a Justice of the peace to recover damages for the loss of a dog, which he gravely charged her with having killed by bewitching it. The justice, instead of refusing to consider such a charge, put the . case to trial , and on the evidenee presented gave judgment against Mother Fisher. The woman bad the reputation of being a vindictive witch, and she lived alone in a small cabin, her fatndy and neighbors shunning ber. The charge made against her by the farmer was that she had bewitched his dog and refused to drive the witch away nntll he paid her a certain sum of money. He refused, and upon his refusal the dog began running wildly about in a circle, suffering great agony, until it at last fell down from exhaustion and died. . A large number of witnesses were examined in the caw, and all gave testimony as to having been sufferers from the de fendant's power of witchcraft. One witness swore that be had been aolicited by the defendant not to appear in the case on behalf of the plaintiff, and that he had refused to comply with her request. A few days afterward his well became dry and his cows give bloody milk. His baby, which at the time he refused the defend'-ant'a request was fat and healthy, bad refused to be suckled, and bad grown so puny that Its death was hourly expected. To cap the climax of this remarkable trial, the defendant after hearing the evidence confessed herself guilty of the eharge. The Justice gave the farmer judgment for 3 and the costs of the suit. Mother Fisher had a curiosity in a strange volume, printed In the German language, and over 800 years old. It was called "The Wonder Book," and It was brought from Germany by a female ancestor who came to Lancaster county with the Dunkers in 171!. That ancestor was also a noted "witch woman," and there bad been one in the family ever since nntll the death of Barbara Fisher, who was the last of her line, she having never married. "The Wonder Book" was a ponderous volume bound In boards and its heavy covers seeured by brsss clasps. No other band but hers was ever permitted to touch the precious book, and from it she drew ber inspiration for "wonder working." This shrewd and eonnlng beldam could never be induced by any offer to try her powers on a stranger or on any one wbe lived outside of the neighborhood in which she lived, every resident of which she knew. Her neighbors went to ber for cousultatlon nd advice from miles around. To ber, husbands took their wives, parents theli children, lovers their sweet hearts or themselves, for treatment for all ' ills, for the removal of evil spoils, and for charms they believed to be potent in love and business, or in the satisfying of vengeance. If ft child were deformed, demented, tongue-tied, blind, "liver-grown," or unnaturally afllicted in any way, ft visit to Dame Fisher was never delayed. For a child to be "liver- grown" is an ailment that seems to be peculiar to the disease vocabulary of these "hexa wiver." What It Is does not seem to be exactly known to anybody, but If the child is til nd the parents consult a "wooder worker" and she telle them it is liver-grown they consider that misfortune hae fallen heavily on them, ana me sympathy of their friends and neighbors goes out to them indeed. A uver grown child means that some witch is visiting them with her worst spells, and the , greatest powers of the wonder-workers must be Invoked to break these speus and render them powerless for the future. Only a short time ago, in the busy borough of Columbia, the second largest town In Lancaster oouaty, the wife of a well-known and prosperous' business man consulted a witch woman of that place, her baby being ill. The witch woman went through eerUin pow-wow cereinonitB, and then lufoi mod the mother that the child was liver-grown. The grief of the mother was great, and increased as the charm of the witch woman failed lu efficacy, and the child still remained nuder the spell. Brooding over her affliction, the poor woman lost her reason. She became so violent tbat she was placed in the State InBane Asylum in llarrisburg. She died there a week later, raving over the affliction that bad be fallen her babe. It wns not the misfortunes of humanity alone tbat Dame Fisher was called upon to minister to by her neighbors. If a farmer bad a breaching cow, it sheep had the mnrraln, if crops looked bad, old Barbara's aid was sought at ouce. A horse was never stolen in the neighbor bood while Dame Fisher lived there, which she was not asked to recover, and the catching of the thief was also desired. Tbat was a serious undertaking for her, but she never hesitated a moment to both catch the thief and recover the horse, provided the owner of the stolen horse would first give her three hairs from Its tail. These hairs, she Insisted, must have been picked np in the stall the horse bad occupied, and dropped there by the horse itself, and not hairs thut might have been kept on baud in case of an emergency. As stolen horses are not in the habit of carefully dropping three hairs out of tbelr tails in their stalls as a precaution against possible vIhIis of thieves, the finding of the desired number was not always an easy tblng to do. But if the bnlrs were obtained Dame Fisher would proceed at once to get back the stolen property and bring the thief to justice. She cut the hairs so they would be of equal length, and then tied them together In the middle. At sunset the owner of the stolen horse must take the hairs to his barn yard, place them on a shovel, and light them at both ends. Whichever way the two ends of the hairs turned as they burned indi cated the direction the thief had gone. The short ends of the burned bair were then to be burled in the barn yard. This ceremony placed a spell on the thief (hat prevented him from getting beyond certain limit, and finally forced him to turn and drive or ride back in the direction he bad gone until be came to the very farm where he had stolen the horse. In spite of the fact tbat no horse thief ever came back with any of bis plunder after thus placing blm under s spell unless he was accompanied by a constable, Barbara Fisher always got the credit of fetching him back. If the thief or horse neverap-peared Dame Fisher simply told the person she was using her power for that he lacked faith in ber or bad deceived ber w ith the balrs, either of which was sufficient to destroy her power. Dame Fisher did not scruple to use her wonder-working powers for evil as well as good. She would for the proper fee give sn applicant a charm to ward off lightning from his buildings, or one tbat would make his enemy's cows give bloody milk. She would bring lovers together and marry them bapplly, or separate man and wife, just ss ber customers desired. She would undertake to restore ft person to health or to prostrate ft whole family with Illness with equal readiness. Whether it was to scatter blessings or call down evils, she did not hesitate to act according to the wishes of ber patrons and the size of the fee, and at strange as it may seem, she succeeded In maintaining such implic it confidence in ber powers In the com munity where she had lived and operated for more than sixty years that at her death her reputation as wonder-worker wss as great and unquestioned as it ever bad been. Opportunities for Gentleme a. One of the new features of II. W. Han- Bicker's New Bee Hive is the department of gentlemen a fnrnisninga, in which stock of both foreign end domestic goods can be found at lowest price. To introduce this department to gentlemen buyers, lartre case of natnra. wool under wear is offered at $1.70 cents ft set or 8ft cents ft piece. They are worth $2.50 a set end were sold for less. A Letter Bay-lope Can Needed. In consequence of the decline in the sup ply of gum arablo, the postofuce depart ment has been obliged to abandon Its use of this excellent material as a sealer for letter envelopes. In lieu of gum arablo filthy and foul-tasting compound has been substituted which is ft dlsgraoe to the department and nuisance to all who have occasion to seal government envelope. Any one who closes a letter in the ordin ary manner finds the Hps soiled and a vll iainous taste left In the mouth. It Is to be hoped the ingenuity of chem ists will be able to purify the substances now used, or produce new gnm tbat shall be free from the object ions now mentioned. Such an invention or discov ery ought to prove highly profitable to IU author, for it is greatly needed by the publls. Scientific American. Oae Gevernia-Ml Telegraph Lias. Fm the Wanlilirton Star ) The telegraph line from Poplar River to Fort Maglnnls, in the Department of Dakota, 252 miles in length, Is the most costly of all the telegraph lines connected with the military service. The interven ing country is wild and desolate in the ex treme and generally without inhabitants, so that at Oalpto, the repair station, this service is obliged to maintain, at an ex pense of $1,630 per year, two civilian re pairmen, since one will not live there atone. The total receipts from line during the put year were $155.17, while the cost to the Government for maintaining nd operating the section is over $1,000 annually. ' .

A Detective's Keen Wit. From the Macon Ulegraph. The Telegraph' I Uazlehurst correspond ent made mention yesterday of the arrest and committal of a negro named Chandler Joues, for burglarizing the store of J. L. Milton, at that place, on the night of the 18th. Jones was bound over in the sum of $1,000. The circumstances of his detec tion are peculiar, and the work was done by Detective E. A. Wilson, of Shackle- ford's Agency, at Macon. It shows how that efficient officer seised upon a Blight clue and followed it to a successful result. When he arrived at Hazlehurst he made an examination of the store, and found that the double door had been unlocked by the insertion of chisel between the doors and gradully working the bolt into the lock. He then made an examination of the a tore, but saw nothing in the way of a clue except an apple out of which two bites had been taken, His detective instinct caused him to ex amine this apple, and he saw upon it tooth marks that were valuable. He saw that the two front teeth of the bites were not only irregular but peculiar. He im agined tbat when the biter was a boy an old tooth remaining in the gum caused a new tooth to grow one-sided, and it was now his resolve to find the man with that ingrowing tooth. The apple was placed iu water so as to prevent shrivelling, and keeplngtbe secret to himself he went down to Baxley, where be knew there were a number of loafing negroes. He found a group in a store and In the oentre of it was a real negro dude and he was stauding in an attitude that would have shamed a New York swell. The de tective instinct came into play again and Mr. Wilson was certain tbat the dude was the man he wanted, but it was necessary to put bim to the test. Walking into the store be bought ft cigar. Then seeing some apples be bought a dime's worth, and, biting one, said to the crowd, "Here I can't eat all these," and treated the group with the apples. His eyes were upon the dude and when that individual took one bite the detective was dead sure of bis man, and when be raised the apple to bis mouth for ft second bite the handcuffs were placed on his wrist. There never was a more astonished negro. He was under arrest so quickly that he was unable to offer any resistance, and submitted to the handcuffing. He was wearing a suit of clothes stolen from Bussey, of Chaunsey, and a fine watch and chain taken from Mr. Milton. After placing Jones in the lockup, the detective found where bo was stopping, and then he se cured thn valise with ft number of Mil ton's goods, and in the valise were the little cards attached to the clothing and on which were Milton's cost and selling marks. Jones was then taken to Hazle- burst.and at the store showed how he went in with two others and made the haul. When he first went in on the night of the burglary the first thing he saw was a bar rel of apples. He picked up one, and after two bites laid it down on Mr. Milton's dek. He owned up to the entire affair, and told where the other goods could be found. He a'so confessed to having reb bed Mr. Bussey in Cbauncey. And thus another apple caused a man's downfa'l.

Lindenmutb, the Photographer. A SCHOOLMASTER'S SUICIDE. He Kllli Himself on the Grave of His XV He. (From the Pen Argyl Index, Nov. . On Wednesday morning, Oct. 31st, John T. Bennett was found dead on the grave of his wife with his throat cut almost from ear to ear, Bennett was principal of the schools of Bloomsburg and,although quite young, was one of Bloomsburg's most trusted citizens. Last Winter he married the only daughter of Theodore Baker, a lady of many accomplishments. After two months' absence they returned and occupied a handsone home, which Mr, Bennett fitted up In elegant style prior to the wedding. Some time ago the bride contracted a severe cold, which gradually grew worse, terminating in consumption, and she died week before last, at the age of 22. Bennett was com pletely prostrated with grief and it was apparent to all that his mind was affected. Of Interest to Profane People. How many times a day can yon walk the streets without having your ears filled with tbe disgusting profanity which is al most constantly in the air 7 Even the mouthsof children are filledwlth oaths tbat would do honor to the traditional pirate, and nearly everybody seems to have forgotten the Injunction once taught in the church and the Sunday school with something likeearnestness, "Swear not at all." It may be news to some people, or if not It will do them good to remind them, that profanity is, under the statutes, no light offence. Here Is the Act of March 31. 1860 : "If any person shall willfully, pre-meditatively and despltefully blaspheme or speak looselyand profanely of Almighty God, Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit or tbe Scriptures of Truth, such persons, on con viction thereof, shall be sentenced to pay a fine not exceeding $100, and undergo an imprisonment not exceeding three months or both, at tbe discretion of the Court."

Progress In Yellew-I ever Treatment. (Frem tbe Waco I .'ex.) Day The percentage of deaths from yellow fever at Jacksonville so far this season has been only about 8 per cent. This, however, includes new case- which have not yet terminated, so tbat 10 per cent, will perhaps be nearer the actual average, but that rate is rather below than above ft fair eat imate. This shows wonderful progress In the treatment of thla disease since it first came under the notice of the medical profession of the Southern States. Twenty-five or thirty years ago tbe deaths were equal to not less than one-third of tbe total number of cases, and sometimes ran up to one-half. This was In tbe days of "heroic" medicine, when the fever was fought with -euinlne and other active agencies, butnow"tbe mild power cures," and tbe death-rate is correspondingly lowered. A Marine Cariosity. A marine curiosity comes from tbe pic-. turesque village of North port, Long Is land. Captain Hcudder of tbat town sends the New 'York Telegram a scallop and oys ter so firmly united tbat they are sub stantially one animal. Tbe fluted edges are as beautiful as a lace ruffle petrified and inlaid with tinted porcelain, while half of the oyster is lost In its nnion with the acallop. Altogether It Is quite a freak of nature. Several of these shell twins were found by Captain Scudder and tbe meat of the oyster bad become flavored with the juice of the scallop.

The following is latest swindle which was prscticed upon the school directors at Damascus, Wayne county : A glib-toagued agent for a large sized map of Pennsylvania recently solicited tbe patronage of tbe school directors of that township. He called upon them so that no two of them were together; and thus took advantage of them by stating that he had obtained the signatures of the others that the maps might be placed in tbe several schools ol the township; and by so doing obtained the signatures of tbe majority of them. ' Tbe maps were to cost something like $12 apiece, and now are to cost the township between $50 and $275. It Is understood that the directors refuse to receive the maps on the ground of his having taken advantage of them by misrepresentation. How it will end Is yet to be learned. .. : His Shin Came In. .
