stead there came a vision of yellcw
sand and blue skies. and dark, black
haired playmates around, and a shout
ing of "Well striven, little king!" Once,
when he had been ill for a long time,
and I went to see him, a name sprung
up almost to my lips-the name was
forgotten, but I knew it had been his
name long before.
After leaving school I devoted myself
to Egyptian antiquities. They seemed
to present no difficulty to me, and 1
soon made a great name. Me mnwhile
the conviction grew upon me that I had
lived in Egypt many years bfore. I
even began to realize dimly that I was
Amenemhat IV., of whom the histories
said so litle.
Then I met Nerissa, and for awhile I
studied no more. There was no one,
nothing else in all the world that mat
tered the least to me. I became her
accepted lover, and for a few months I
lived in paradise.
After this I had a strong fever. In
the dreams and delirium the past came
back to me, and when I was well again
I remembered. I was Amenembat and
she was Numidea, the blue-eyed slave.
As I had ordered by the spell, I was
reborn to live with her again. Kales.
her lover, had known no spells, I told
myself. So he was in the future or the
past, perhaps by a thousand years, as
the gods had ordered, and she was not
for him but for me. The thought of
her wrong in the past made me won
drously tender to her, and she was al
ways gentle. Yet I tortured myself
that she did not love me as I loved her.
"When we are married-it will come,"
I told myself. "It shall come."
One day in the spring we were sitting
together. Rupert had come home or,
a furlough from his regiment in In
dia, and came first to see me. They
looked at one another for a long time.
There was remembrance in their eyes.
Fool that I had been to think myself
wiser than the gods! He was Kales.
The room grew dark and I fainted.
When i came to they propped me up
wivth pillows and sat beside me. They
spoke as if they had known one an
otner for years. It seemed, they said.
that they must have met before, and
they talked jestingly of a transmigra
tion of souls.
After that they seemed always meet
ing. The light leaped into their faces
Slhen they saw each other. The3
looked wistfully backward when they
parted. I entreated Nerissa to hastes
our wedding day, but she tearfully re
"Suppose," she said, "that we had
made a mistake, after all? Somietimes
I think-" She paused here, agd when
I questioned her she was silent:
One evening I weht ,lbwily into hez
boudoir and heard them talking pas
.ionately. I lingered behind a great
screen. It was an unworthy thing tc
do; but I would have done worse-fat
worse-for love of her.
"You love me," he said, triumph
rtliy. "You love me! You are mint
by right. Nerissa-my dear!"
"Bush," she sobbed. "Hush! I am
his-your friend's. I promised."
'-You do not love him. You cannot
"Oh, I have tried!" she cried. Then
he took her in his arms and comfort- I
ed her--he who had been -my friend.
I went stealthily away. It was well 1
that I had no weapon then.
That night I dreamed the old dream I
of her death. In the morning I con-,
cealed a small sharp dagger about me I
and 'went to see her. When I kissed
her she half turned her face away.
"Have you an3ything to say to me. -
Xerissal" I askced.-...` ..- . .---I
"No," - she answered, with a little t
.aich in her voice. "I do not think t
so. Oh, no!"
"Nothing?" I asked again. "Think."
My fingers tumbled at the dagger.
When she confessed that she was
failhless, I would slay her, I thought.
"'Nothing," she said, slowly. "Only
-name the day that you will." She
was loyal since she knew how greatly
I loved her. I might have known.
"Kiss me!" I cried fiercely. She
yielded lust one faint little embrace.
I caught her in my arms and kissed
her hail, her eyes and her lips a thou
sand times. * * * Then the words
of Charmicles, the charioteer, came
back to me. "If I loved her enough,
oh king, perchance I should set her
I snaFped the dagger before her and
threw the pieces away.
"I-Ir came to kill you," I said. Then
I fled into the street. People leaped
aside from my path as I sped along to
my old friend, Dr. Strange.
"Put me away," I demanded, "or
some day I shall kill her. I am mad!"
So they put me away.
That is ten years ago. I have stayed
here since, except twice, when they
have taken me to Egypt for some re
searches. I am seeking for the spell.

I The engineer, the chemist,.the phy

have cooperated to bring about a com

cleaning dirty clothes.
a Let us step into one of the great
steam laundries and accompany one
I or two articles as they pass from room
to room. There are not many-af these
- great laundries in the country, by the
.way, but there is one in New York
which occupies a six-story building
heated, lighted and ventilated like a

The first room is the one in
which the dirty linen is received. It
is thrown in like loads of. coal from
a big window that leads to the alley.
! And such loads of it! Bundles and bun
dies, shirts, collars, cuffs. bed sheets,
table linen and shirts again. Five girls

other specialty, while large, plain
pieces are again sorted out from bhnd

hours with the fumes of microbe kill

Then the samertwo men take the linen
.at of the chamber and begin some
more sortIag. There are now -three
piles of it, the dirty linen, the very
dirty, and the dirtiest, filthiest of all.
You ought to see some of the stuf in
that third pile.
Essentially the process of cleasning
the clothing in the three dirty heaps is
the same. But each is subjected to 1 '
correspondingly severe process, whilet
the washing of the dirtiest, chemicals
are thrown In n sometimes in profusldn
and the clothes are tossed about like
the football of an eastern coileg+team.
First these clothes are placed in a
"washer," so called. Thisis as different
from John Chinaman's washtub as a l
locomotive from a horse cab. There is
a row of 12 washers ran by a series of
belts, which lead down. to an electric 1
machine in the basement. Circular
boxes about six feet diameter revolve t

crumpled-up wares in the drying cham
ber wou:d be a most laborious task
The mangles are used for plain ironing;
they are of different sizes, some of them
over a story in height, and resembling
in many ways a great printing press.
The linen is fed in at one end, passes
over a series of steam-heated rollers, in
and out and over again, until It is
caught up at the further end, and neat
ly folded in the shape desired. Like the
press in a printing office, the mangle is
the largest and most expensive piece
of furniture in a laundry, costing some
times thousands of dollars. Smaller
mangles are used for smaller pieces,
though sometimes these are fed dozens
at a time into a large machine.
Starched goods go from the drying
room to the starcher. This is a simple
machine, which takes one piece at a
time, floods it with starchy fluid, and
then presses it down with a fine gloss.
In the finest steam laundries hand work
is used in addition. F.rom the starcher,
the shirt or collar goes to the ironer,
the moistener, the collar turner, the
button-hole opener, and sometimes to
several other machines, whleh put the
finishing touches on the finest work.
Then the marks on every piece are
again examined, sorted by number, and

please to call her-a woman who had

eternal world. It was a very difflleult
thing to do, for Saul had either slain
all the witches or compelled thenrto
itop business. A servant one day tid
to King Ssul: "I know of a spiritual
medium down at the village of Endor."
"Do you?" said the king. Night falls.
Saul, putting off his kingly robes and
putting on the dress of a plain eitize.,

woman to the door, and as she stands
there, holding the candle or lamp above
her head and peerng out into the
darkness, she says: "WhoIs here?"
The tall king informs her that he has
come to have his fortune told. When
she hears that she trembles and al
most drops the light, for she knows
there is no ehance for a fortune teller'
or spiritual medium in all the land.
But Saul having sworn that no harm
shall come to her, she says: "Well,
who shall I bring up from the dead?"
Saul says: "Bring up SamueL" That

I see her waving a wand, or stirring
up some poisonous herbs in a caldron,
or hear her matteriag over some inean

she cries out to the realm of the dead:
"Samuel, Samuel!" Lo, the friezsng
horror! The foor of the tenement
opens, and the gray hairs Roat up and
the forehead, the eyes, the lips, the
shoulders, the arms, the feet-the en
tire body of the dead Samuel--wrapped
in sepulcbral robe, appearing to the
astonished group, who stagger beaek
and hold fast and catch their breath
and shiver with terror.
The dead prophet, white and awful
from the tomb, begins to move his
ashen lips, and he glares upon . King
Saul and edes out: "What did you
bring me up for? What do you mean,
King Saul?" Saul, trying to compose
and control himself, makes this stam
mering and afrighted utterance as he
says to the dead prophet: "The Lord
is against me, and I have come to you
for help What shall I do?" The dead
prophet stretched forth his fager to
King Saul and said: "Die to-morrow!
Come with pia intothe sepulcher. Iam
going now. Come, come with me!"
And, lo, the oar again opens, and the
feet of the dead prophet disappear and
the arms and the shoulders and the
forehead! The door closes. Oh, that

spiritualistic demonstrations. The ta
bleu tipped, and the stools tilted, and
the bedsteads raised, and the elairs
upset, and it seemed as If the spirits
everywhere had gone into the furni
ture business! Well the people said:
"We have got some-thing new in this
country. It is a new rellgion!" Oh,
no, my friend, thousands of years ago,
we and in our test, a spiritualistice
Nothing in the spiritualistlc circles
of our day has been more strange,
mysterious and wonderful than things
I which have been seen in past centuries
of the world. In all ages there iave
been necromaneers, those who consult
I with the spirits of the departed;
charmers, those who put their subjects
in a mesmeric state; sorcerers, those
who by taking poisonous drugs see
everything and hear everything and
tell everything; dreamers, people who
in their sleeping moments can see the
future world and hold consultation
with spirits. Yes, before the time of
Christ, the Brahmans went through all i
the taole moving, all the furniture ex
citemen% whleh the spirits have ex
ploited sn our day, preecisely the same
thing over and over again, under the
manipulation of the Brahmans. Now,
do you say that spiritualism is differ
eat from. these? I answer, all these
delusions I have mentioned belong to
the same family. They are exhuma
tions from the unseen world.
What does God think of all these de
uinsons? He tqkslso severely of them
that He never speaks of them but with
1-14 thunders of Indignation. Hemsays:
"I will be a Sai frs witnea agat·la the
soreerer." He asys: "TI"e ..b.r3 aot
suffer a witch to Jive." And lest you
might make some important distinc
tion between spiritualism and witch
craft, God says, in so many words:
"There shall not be among you a con
sulter of familiar spirits, or wisand, or
aecromancer, for they that do these
things are an abomination unto the
Lord." The Lord God Almighty in a
score of passages which I have not now
time to quote utters His indignation
against all this great family of deln
dlons. After that be a spiritualist if

bow it is that people come to fall into
pltritualism. Saul had enough trouble
to kill ten men. He did not know where
to go for relief. After awhile he re
imlved to go and see the witch of an
dor. He expected that somehow she
would, afford him relief. It was his
trouble drove him there. And I have
to tell you now that spiritualism finds
its vietimr in the troubled, the hank
rupt, the slek, the bereft. You lose

You lose a friend; you want theepir
ituai world opened, so that you may
have communication with him. In a
highly wrought, nervous and diseased
state of mind you go and put yourself
in that communication. That Is why
I hate spiritualism. It takes dvan

which may come upon us at any time.
We lose a friend. The trial is keen,
sharp, suffocating, almost maddening.

"We will open the future wýor, and
your loved one can come back and talk
to you." Though we may not hear his
voice, we may hear the rap of his hand.
