Lillio Uodmer, of Hteolton, noar hero.
Sho hns boon in n trance now for cloven

nnd immediately falling again into a stato of
Miss Hodmer's condition was brought on
by udigiotis frenzy. At first nothing wns
thought of it, ns such ensi s woie of froquout
occurrciico among tbo peculiar sects to which
sho belougod. A few hours, though, wns tho
extent of tho tranquility enjoyod by hor co
worshippers. 'Ibis young Indy wns tho daughter of nvery
Wlel.ed father, llo boro tho rcimtulluii of
being tho wickedest man in Stcolton. To tlio
good pcoplo of tlio purit..nio spirit ho wns
known as " Wicked John,"
This most wicked miiu was converted, nnd
to a church of tho moht pronounced ortho.

beeniiio ns intensely good ns ho was boforo
'1 hen bo oxhortcd his two daughters to
join, nud lifter a supremo effort got thorn
within tho fold. A weok ngo Friday night
both " received the blossing. "
A few minutes thereafter Lillio.tho younger
one, fell into n tiancp. Hor eyes became
fixed nnd her form ns rigid as though in death.
As this condition is a common ono mining
"mourners" when they recuivo tho blessing
in the Church of God, nothing wns thought
of it. Sho remained m tho trnuco so long,
howovir, that she wns carried to John i'nr
thenioro's house, not fnr from tho church,
whero she bus lain ever since. She has re
turned to consciouHiuss at intervals, lint is
uuablo to stand or nto. Shn insists that she
is in hcnvPii and that nil about her are angels.
Sho hns tifken no nourishment in nil thnt
timo oxcept tho juico of two or tbroo oriinces
and a dlsli of ice cream. Her chaoks runnm
full and are nigh in color.
Tho most curious part of tho phenomenon
is that tho girl, v ho is hardly nblo to lead,
and who, her father dec ares, hns nover, to
his knowledge, si ou tho insido of n lliblo,
because ho nevor had ono in tho house until

aud said that stioh nnd such persons wero ill

inquiry elicited that such wns the fnct, nl

Sevornl Harnsbnrg nnd other physicians
htivo isitod the girl nnd studied tho tnse, but
nro nimble to explain tho phenomenon by
hhe loiunlains of no suffering, but hor
words nud tho expression of her face donoto
tho greatest peace aud happiness.
Hundreds of people from tho illago and
btirrounding country hnvo flocked to t'athc
more's houso to see the girl, and tho pro
found impression it has mado is manifested
bythothiongs that besicgo Pastor Kcofer's

Tho pnstor spends most of his timo nt tho
