Charleston, S. C, Feb. 1G. A
strange story well uuthcuticated
comes from Barnwell county. There
is a family homestead in Joyce
branch, in that county, m hich seems
to be haunted by fire, somethiug out
of the usual run of ghosts stories.
There are strange disturbances
which intelligent and sober minded
people tried to bring themselves to
believe atmospheric or electiical
phenomena, but this they never suc
ceeded entirely in doing. The mys
tery seems to baffle all attempts at a
solution. The latest manifestation therefore he was willing to contri
occurrtd a few nights ago. A waeon t yute $100,000 from his own exche
load of negroes returning from a
meeting, passed the house at mid
night They were singing an old
camp meeting hymn, when as thev
passed directly in front of the house,
they were tkliulged by an unearthly
"'.amour that shot from the windows
and felled them terror stricken from
their board seats into the bottom of
the wagon. The mul attached to
the vehicle darted toward the dark
ness, carrying his shrieking and
praying lo.ulswifth from the scene.
The yells of the frightened negroes
awoke every one for half a mile
around them, and thev tried to tell
they had seen but were para -
with fear, and could gei - ticu -
lateand talk ineoherentlv. A bet -

"It is this," said the Philadelphia!! : i
"Philadelphia society has never re

like tc be rtcognized. There is in
that old Qnaker city, where there is
considerable blue blood, a prejudice
against trades, people, and especially
against Wanamaker and his family
because he came up without any par

has never been, able to get into- first

about entering the Cabinet for is
that he may beable to place himself
and his family in that high social

is especially in Philadelphia a strong
society antagonism, to dry goods peo
