Your mero assertions against Spiritual

Hollls continued to impose upon her.
Hut hoar our evidence. Wo called on
Mrs. Hollls after tho let us call it "so

to give us it test. Wo remained with her

were not gentle lu denunciation of those

compelled to submit to, had
robbed her of the mean through which
she made the spirit nianlfesl. Sugges
tions of tests site resented with anger,
talking all the time about her standing,
her trip to Europe, the great people she
had met, the great things she had done.
Her conversation was very entertaining,
but she got no writing for if. That
same evening at Mound City, In the com

'Do not denounce medium; ns vou have

against each other as you have hi Un

Here Is Hollls, a great mediumso irieat
that to doubt her Is to oflend our eorro-
pondent and all her acquaintances. Mrs.
Hollls says that another great medium U
a pretender nnd a swindler. She de
nounced several lu our hearing. Ik-re Is
Mott, recognized as tho great materia'.,
izer of the West next to the Eddy
Urothers in power. He says Hollls Is a
fraud. If the high priests of Spiritual
ism denounce each other as swindlers
who can believe?
Ourcorrespoiidentsays: "I donotenvy
you your state of indlclsion." A quite
fair lndy correspondent would not have
said this. We me not undecided. Wc
say nnd have said : "We do not believe;"
but our correspondent, while rebuking
us for unbelief, says : "Wo would be
