Picture if you will...on December 11, 1867 the Louisiana Democrat reprinted a then modern ghost story. The tale (reproduced here) involves several strange days in the life of Delos Wilnans of Southern Ohio. The story incorporates the themes of gambling addiction, family abuse, death by embolism, catatonia, bereavement, pranks, hauntings, good guys with guns messing up, first aid, and escape technique. I don't want to spoil the tale, but take a few moments to read through this remarkable series of unfortunate (and fortunate) events and enjoy your Halloween treat a little early.
