    • Rube: The long ghost story.

      Rube's ghost story is an elaboration on an excerpt from Thoreau's Walden. In Chapter 18 "Conclusion," Thoreau writes: There is a solid bottom everywhere. We read that the traveler asked the boy if the swamp before him had a hard bottom. The boy replied that it had. But presently the traveler's horse sank in up to the girths, and he observed to the boy, "I thought you said that this bog had a hard bottom." "So it has," answered the latter, "but you have not got half way to it yet." So it is with the bogs and quicksands of society; but he is an old boy that knows it.
