"We hold that the higher the theme,
and the more exalted the system, the
purer tbat which comes through or ema

homes for aged speakers, mediums and

those of their same faith; and ultimately
we intend to build in this city, a spiritual

the United States, from which shall Issue
the most orthodox teachings of our faith."
There Js a movement on foot looking to
the establishment of a spiritualistic library
tor the preservation of the writings of
eminent spiritualists, there being about
150 volumes already collected, among
which arc some very creditable produc
tions, showing that, there are some of
our most Intellectual and highly culti

Arrest of a Man TV ho Robbed tbo
Government Five Years Api.
The Post-office Department was yester
day, advised of the arrest of Allen M. Winn
at St. Paul, Minn., who was indicted in
1890 for embezzling money order funds at
the post-office at Haskell, Tex. Winn has
been a fuglUve from Jn6Uce for some years,
and cleverly worked the department for
a considerable sum of money.
Ho was a relative of the postmaster at
Haskell, and while not connected with the
office, assisted with the mall matter. He
forged the name of the postmaster on a re
quest to the department asking tbat a draft
be sent the office atHaskell. Thlswasdone
and he Intercepted the draft and sent it to
a bank near Haskell to be cashed.
The bank being short of funds sent only
one-third of the amount. Winn became
suspicions of this, took the money, and fled.
A few days later the remainder of the
money was cent by the bank much tgs.be
perplexity of the postmaster, who, upon
Investigation, discovered the swindle.
Winn has probably been In Canada all these
