Wonder." A nollirr Perform
An nudionco of about two hun
drod and fifty pcoplo greeted tho
first npponrnnco in thiB oity of
Miss Anuio May Abbott, whoso
ontertuinment of Instnight must bo
soon to be fully apprcointod.
Tho liltlo lady, who is a pro
nounced brunotto, was dressed in
a yellow gown with a baby waist,
the arms boing bnro almost to
tho shoulders to show that no
mechanical contrivances were con
cealed about hor.
Miss Abbott commenced hor
ontertainmont by giving a drumat
io rooitation, aftor which Mr.
Abbott told of tho discovery of
hor remarkable powers and tho
efiorts mudo by distinguished
physicians throughout tho world
to detormino thoir true nature
Ho thon asked the following gen
tlemen to act as a committeo of
investigation and tako Boats on
tho platform: Josoph Marsdnn,
British Commissioner Hawos, J.
B. Atherton, J. M. Oat, S. G.
Wilder, W. E. Rowcll, Senator
Notloy, John Cassidy, Bov. Sorono
Bishop, G. 0. Ballantyno, Bep-
SroBentativo Byoroft, Drs. Wood,
orbort and Bodgors.
For tho first tost Mr. Itowoll
was askod to hold a stout chair
close to his breast. MSbs Abbott
touched it and the boldor was
thrown baokwards and forwards
at will. Messrs. Cassidy, Mars
den and Byoroft consecutivoly
assisted Mr. Bowell but thoir
ofibrts woro of no avail. By
placing tho opon palms of ber
hands against tho chair all the
holders were swayed about in
various dirootions. To show that
no concealed contrivanco waB used
Dr. Bodgors and Mr. Marsdon
placed thoir nanus on the chair
whiio Miss Abbott placod ono
fingpr of oach hand ovor them
with tho sumo lesult, while
neither of tho gentlemen folt
any distinct prossuro.
Five members of tho committoo
could not forco to tho ground a
billiard cue on which Miss Abbott
placed her opon palms, noithor
could they disturb her equilibrium
when she stood on ono heel
and allowed tho same number of
men to push against the cuo held
horizontally against her opon
The fun of tho ovening com
menced when the members of tho
committeo wero severally invited
to lift the lady from tho floor.
She weighs 98 pounds and can be
lifted easily by anybody when in
her normal state. Dr. Rodger
tried it first and did so, but when
he wus invited to make a second
attempt he couldn't make th
young lady budge nn inoh. Rev.
Soreno Bishop tried it noxt but
his exertions only mudo him rod
in tho faco. Tho British Com
missioner had no better bucooss,
neithor could Mossrs. Atherton,
llyoroft, Oat or Sam Wilder loft
tho ludy from tho floor. Tho lat
ter tried his best and would pro
bably have been trying yet if
some ono in tho audionoo had not
called out "Lot go."
After all tun memuors ol tlio
committeo had a chance to lift
her separately except the Com
missioner of Agriculture, who was
barred in spite of his ovident wil
lingness to try his host, four and
then six of the committoo wore
invited to lift hor from tho stago
but could not succeed.
Among other tests givon Messrs.
Horbort and Ballantyno placed
thoir hands against tho wall, Miss
Abbott thon placed her opon right
hand ovor them with arm held
straight ont. Senator Notloy
thon stood behind the lady with
his hands on her sliouldor and bo
hind him wero ranged in singlo
filo in a similar position nine
members of tho committee. Tho
