During the past week Mr. Hollit, of
Louisville, a professed spiritual medium
of wonderful power, has boen in this oity(
and hat astoundod msny of our poople.
Through her, us the medium, many of the
doad triendsof Cairo people havo spoken
audibly, and nppoared InJ tho flesh ; nnd
spirits, stranger to this city liave
written communications containing
strange facts and doclaimed in manly

Impostor, and propose to glvo our reasont
for tblt belief.
HOW IT li DO.NK.
Tinio, daylight; place, room In any
house; peoplo In tbo room, Mrs. Hollis
and two porsons iioil.-ou. of receiving
written communication! from tho spirit
world. In the room Is a card thlo folded,
covered with a blankot that hangt down
on all tidos to tho floor. At this table
Mn. Hollis is seated, with hor right side
next to tho tablo. A pencil Is placod on
a tlato, which Ml. Hollis. lilting the
blanket, placo It undor tin lablo, holding
Hinhor rlghthond, tho blankot dropping
over her nnn. Then thl may happen.
Wo will tny, for instance, that ono of tho
numerous family of Smith it desirous of
spiritual communication. Mr. Moll's,
very plotant woman, a scholar
In thu thn mystory of human
naturo, engagos in convocation ; talkt
well; very entertainingly. In a fow
minutes Mrs. Hollis takos tho slalo from
undor tb table, and on It is found
written: "J. Smith." Tbo inquisitive
Smith is jocular, and sayt: "l'robably tho
tho original John Smith'' Hut thuru is
no Smith in tho family whose namo com
mences with .1.' Conversation goo on,
and Mrs. Hollis requests Smith to writo
question on the slate for tho spirits to
answer. 01 courto Smith, iinsupoctlng,
asks questions about hi family, lotting a
little light into Mrs. Hollis' mind, for she
reads tho questions. IIo gets no vory sat
isfactory answers to tbom. Conversation
goes on. Moro information given to Mrs.
Hollis. Names of children dead, and
other circumstances. Then wrltton com
munication signod with tho namo of
thoso )cblldron, communications indefi
nite or surprising according to tho knowl
edge Mn. Mollis has got of tho Smith
family, How Is tho writing dono?
Mrs. Hollis does not permit
any person to know, but
it it dono by Mn. Hollis. Tboro ought
to bo no doubt or thii. Thoro would not

not a strong now as it wo in tho oldon

Mn. Hollis bit ttudiod human nature and
knows whon a human boart, longing for

Hollit rises (rom faer rocking chair, or
rocks it forward she uses a rocking chair
because it makes no noise and grasps the
