Description

**SEE AN ANGEL NEAR CEMETERY**

**Form of Woman with Long Hair and Flowing White Garments.**

**DRIFTED ACROSS STREET**

Local Restaurant Proprietor and Wife Startled by Apparition in Vicinity of Mt. Olivet - Came Out of Orchard at Side of Road.

Mr. and Mrs. Edward Voetsch of the White Elephant restaurant at No. 76 Whites street claim to have seen the apparition of an angel on Delaware street, a short distance south of Mt. Olivet cemetery, while returning home from Buffalo in their automobile a few nights ago.

"I was driving home from attending Shea's theatre in Buffalo and was nearing the cemetery when the form of a woman with wings, long flowing hair and dressed in long white garments appeared from a small orchard on the east side of the roadway and drifted across the road about forty feet ahead of my car," said Mr. Voetsch this morning.

Mr. Voetsch slowed down his car to prevent hitting the figure and called the attention of his wife, who was in a drowse. Mrs. Voetsch became so excited over the affair that she was unable to sleep during the remainder of the night.

Mr. Voetsch stated that the form disappeared after reaching the opposite side of the street.
