As you can see, it's Phantom Day today, as we deal with two Phantom articles.
The first is in Borrego (New Mexico), or, rather, about four miles away from it Here one night Charley Adams had set up his camp. He was about to sleep there. Well, it's what you do at night.
Charley saw a light approach. It drew nearer. To his horror, he discerned an 8' skeleton, in its rib cage a sort of lantern shining. It seemed to proceed at a stumbling gait.
Another witness, three years later, claimed to have seen the same thing. It was also seen by a search party, which followed it until it was out of sight.
Don't ask me to explain this one.
