ONLY A JOKE. 'Look!' Baid Bearikin in a growly whis per, pointing to a hairy brown heap at the foot of ah oak tree. ' 'Why, it's grandpa!' replied Bruno, in a tone which was meant for a whisper too, although it sounded more like the rumbling of. thunder a long way off. 'And he's asleep!'' grunted Bearikin with a grin. And then the two small bears hugged each other with glee. , The noise they made might have dis turbed grandpa bear, if he had not been making a much bigger noise himself just ?hen with his snores. He did not wake up even when Bearikin, having picked a long piece of tickly grass, crept on tiptoe, with Bruno, behind the oak tree under which he was dozing. ' ' Then the mischievous little bears began to tease the old gentleman. First they tickled his right ear; and he dreamt that a^-fly was buzzing round him, and clapped one forepaw to bis head, but without stop nlng his snores for a moment.

A REAL GHOST STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Democrat — 23 October 1915

A REAL GHOST STORY. Many ghosts stories are connected, not . unnaturally, with battlefields, though so far I have not seen any in print referring to the present struggle. A young officer, however/ whose name I am not at liberty to give sends me an account of a weird experience that occurred to him only a month ago. He has a brother, also an officer and at 'the front, but in another reginieni . One night my correspondent, who nan been sleeping in the trenches, awoke' pud denly with a feeling that someone had aroused him. He jumpe.d up and saw a tall figure standing near. The next moment he recognised the face of his brother, 'who should have been miles away. 'Good lord. Tom,' he cried; 'what are you doing here?' As he spoke the figure melted away, and later he learnt that his brother had been wounded that day by a shell and had died In the night, whether at the same' moment as he saw the apparition he was ' unable to say. ? .,!'.-.?
