Captain WarcTe Will.
The cuuif ctUbre which has (frown out
of the last will ami testament left (y the
late Captain ;txrii i waru, jncnitrati a
leading capitalist aim millionaire, aiunua
almost without a purnllel In lU develop
ment of cross-Durnoaes. Unletl Interests
and decidedly mixed social attd domestic
relations The deceased who waa well
known in Chicago and throughout the
ntire ortuwesr, uieu Riiuaenir last
Jauuury, lcavluir an estate IiiTentoried
at SG,0U0,U00. Tie also left live adult
children by a wife now dead, two of
whom are lunatics, a young widow, to
whom he wai married about ten yean
ago, and two imaut ciniureii. in ins win,
which was tnadc within the lut
few yean, he bequeathed the bulk of
his property to the young widow.
The children of the nrsi marriage, dis
satisfied with this disposition of their
father's wealth, decided to dispute the
will, and retained eminent counsel. After
some unavailing efforts to effect a com
promise, the matter was carried into the
courts. On the part of the children who
contest the validity ot the will. It is al
leged that Capt. Ward believed in spirit-
uajlaul, VTIIlwu ucvituiu an iiimiic ucjubiuij
with him, and which dictated the terms
of the bequest ; that the will was made
under pretenueu lnstruciiaug! tue spirit
of his last wife's father and under undue
influences, etc., etc.
It appears from tlic evidence civcn on
the trial, that Captain Ward, during Ills
loin: and suecesstu! business career, was
accustomed to ask the advice of the spir
its in reirard to his enterprises. nether
he always acted upon these ghostly in-
tructious or not, docs not appear, uui
it is tolerably well established that he
considered Ills own carnal judgment un
worthy of implicit trust on railroad mat
ters, until he had held an interiew with
the ahaslu of Deun Richmond : and a con
sultation with the spirit ot "Cabbage
John," a defunct German Geologist, al
ways preceumg a new mining venture.
Indeed, the ehost of the German was so
frequently admitted to his most intimate
contldence, that it became little less than
the CaDUln's "familiar." as ins inetuou
of acquiring property was attended ny
uniform success, me prospective
heirs oi the eccentric mil
lionaire never thought to lind
fault with hiK appeal to supernatural in
fluences for direction in uusiness anatrs.
Hut it was dlflerent when he undertook
to dispose ot his possessions according
to the same general Kinu oi nuvicu mai
he had sought when accumulating them.
Tha heirs then suddenly discovered that
their father's dealings with the spirits In
dicated an unsound mind. To explain
this obvlou Inconsistency. It is nlletred
that while the advku which the Captain
had received from the other world in re
gard to hti'iueas matters was always very
harmonious, the advice hu hail received
from the same source about the will was
so very conlllctlng that It grievously per
plexed and ugitated him. In fact judg
ing from the inlluences brought to
hear from tue spirit reaim, u wotuu
seem that the dUembodied still retain
their nreferences for their own kitli and
kin. and it was the good fortune of the
second .Mr-. Uarcl that sue nan more

on the farther shore than her predeces
sor. It U aUo probable that as neither
Cabbairu John" nor Dean Ulchmond
are known to have made a study ot testa
mentary Justice or equity In this world or
in the sphere to which they have been
translated, thev were unable to ifive
Found advice on such a delicate question.
Hut, however that may ne, tne tueory
of the contestants' counsel raises a very
Important and interesting legal question,
namely : is u ueuei in spiritual mauiics
tations prima facie evidence of an unsound
mind? It so If harmless delusions, re
llglou, scientific, or social, are to be ceu
foutuled with lunacy, then we may as
well straightway set out building a good
many more lunatic asylums than we have
at present. Every social circle is familiar
with the fact that certain of its members
arc, not exactly mad, but "cracked." On
one point or another sometimes on sev
eral points the mental vision of these
people Is disturbed. They cnertsu ociieis
wnicn every one eise sees to oe uusuru ,
and which they cherish all the more the
more opposition is shown to them. In
the reckless exaggeration of modem
social talk, one continually hears of such
or such a person uemg us "mau as a
March hare" though why hares In
March should be madder than any other
creature, must remain a riddle. One's
friends who are thus urscrineu as oeing
mud as a -March hare do not foam at
the mouth, or flourish razors, or butt
their heads against n wall ; when one in
quires into tne facts, it appears mat tuey
have merely some craze about the world
being Hat, or the possibility of squaring
the circle, or the danger of eating animal
food. Fur more extraordinary delusions
are known to nossess the minds of many
highly respected members "of society,
whom l'.o ono would dream ot reDre-
sentlng as incapable of managing their
own anairs. captain ward, tiiouun dc-
lieving in spirits, was stanuaru am nor

ment of President Johnson succeeded.
Captain Ward would have succeeded

tha Trensury. The assumption Hint such
a man should have been of unsound mind
Is preposterous. Ills belief in Spiritual

Impossible, is surely to be distinguished

Ward and certain members of his family,
were brought to light In the cour.se of
this remarkable trlHl, from which the
veil of secrecy and silence should never

A Prayer that Created atu 1'ispleaa.
atntueaw Among the Niatera.
They came near having a row in a col
ored prayer-meeting at Keystesvllle a
few nights ago. One of the sisters, who
had a grievance, prayed :
"Oh, Lord? look down 'pon Dy resem

"What's dat you'se saying to the Lord

point of order.
Not seeming to notice the Interruption
the supplicator continued :

Willi these words she threw herself
over the bench on to the back of the
kneeling sister, plunged her hands Into
the bustle of that devout but indiscreet
person, and lifted her up bodily.
Confusion reigned and dire dismay was
on many faces that but a moment before
were bright with the hopeot heaveu.
Out a stalwart deacon finally separated
the females, reduced the unnaturally ele
vated bustle ot the one, calmed the ex
cited feelings of the other, and address
ing the relieved audience in an impres
