THE GHOST OF BULLIVA

3 MEN BY THE NAMES OF FELLIN, THRONE AND BULLIVA OPERATED A COAL MINE
OUTSIDE OF HAZELTON. ONE DAY THE MINE SHAFT COLLAPSED TRAPPING ALL
3 OF THE MEN. AFTER LOCATING THE MEN BY MEANS OF TEST DRILLING,
THEY DRILLED INCREASINGLY LARGER HOLES UNTIL AFTER ABOUT TEN DAYS OF
DRILLING THEY WERE ABLE TO PULL THE MEN OUT. HOWEVER, ONLY FELLIN AND
THRONE WERE RESCUED. BULLIVA WAS NEVER FOUND AND IT IS THEORIZED THAT
HE WAS TRAPPED IN A LOWER SHAFT AND DIED THERE. HOWEVER, IT IS SAID
THAT FELLIN AND THRONE ATE HIM IN ORDER TO STAY ALIVE THEMSELVES AND
THAT BULLIVA'S GHOST STILL HAUNTS THAT MINE WAITING FOR HIS CHANCE TO
ESCAPE AND SEEK HIS REVENGE.

Submitter comment: THIS STORY IS TRUE ALTHOUGH THE FATE OF BULLIVA WAS NEVER REALLY
DETERMINED.
