I'rnf. Cooke's r.nterlnlumenl mid
taiioBurr i.nat falurlj' a.eoln(.
Owing to the late hour at whl h Prof.
'ooke concluded bis entertainment at the
Atheneum last Saturday nlfcht, we were
unable to give our readers anything like
a fair report of the wonderful things done
by the professor.
Cairo has a fair share of rpirituall-te,
and in times past they have bet n wit
nesses to exhibitions by the Davenports,
Mrs. Ferris, and a host of other
who claim to perform their
many "tricks" by the aid of
the spirits real genuine other-world
spirits. Rut we doubt very much if
there was a spiritualist present nt the
exhibition Saturday night, who, when
Prol. Cooke had concluded his perform
ance, was not willing to admit that his
beliel In the faith was not, to cay the
least, considerably shaken. Rut let us
speak of the tricks" exposed by Prot.
The audience was composed to a large
extent ol the leading bu-lness and
professional men of the city. On coming
on the stage Prof. Cooke, after a lew
preliminary remarks, ctllcd for a com
mittee of six gentlemen, to be selected
by the audience, whom he desired to oc
cupy the stage with hint during the per
formance. Mr. C. it. Woodward was
chosen chairman of the committee, and
he then selected Dr. Wardner, W. H.
Morri, Col. McKeaig, L. If. Myers ami
Jas. Johnson. Tin se gentlemen all took
their seats on the stagi wl.-jrc they re
mained until the cloc of the entertain
ment. The wine an 1 w iter "trick 'that is
Prot. Cooke gav! Ihe com
mittee wine and water alternately from
the same pitcher was the first perform
ance. But of this we do not w ish to
speak. The wine and water matter is a
very simple trick w hen one know s how
to do it. The other portions ot the en
tertainment is what we wish to nfer to
Prof. Cooke produced five pieces of
rope, and with these he requested the
members of the committee to tie him to
a chair in plain view of (he entire audi
ence. Messrs. Woodward, Wardner,
Morris and Myers proceeded to tie
the professor lo the chair. They
first tied his wrists, drawing the
first halt of the rope so tightly that the
rope was tairly imbedded in the flesh,
cau&lng the hand to turn purple. The
knot w as made double m the same way.
The ends of the rope were then securely
fastened to the legs ot the chair. An
other rope w as placed around the pro
lessor's neck and tL'd tightly to tho top
of the buck of the chair. Hi elbow s
were tied to the side uprights of the
chair. When all the ropes had been
tied kbout him, several member of the
comti'.ttee examined the kuots
a second lime to see
that they wo-e all right, and
having satisfied themselves, took their
seats a short distance away, lu this con
dition Prof. Cooke was carried ir.to
the cabinet. The cabinet, a large box
shaped aflair, about three by live feet iu
side, and six feet high, occupied a po
sition in full view ot the audience. It
was raised about one foot from the floor
and was supported by four square legs
about tw o indies through. This cabinet
was carefully examined by several mem
bers of the committee before Prof. Cooke
was placed iu it. Once Inside tin:
cabinet the door were closed,
and siliuost instantly bells were
ringing. rings ratling, and the
professor's hands, free lrom ropes,
were seen at tlu opening. A moment
later the doors were opened, and the
professor, again tightly tied to the chair,
was carried out of the cabinet, ami placed
on the stage iu lull view of the audience.
Prof. Cooke then showed Imw ca-y it
was to release himsell Iroiu the ropes,
lie slipped every rope from about him,
an 1 walked away lrom the chair, lie
then ugaiu took his seat and in lull view
of the audience replaced the ropes about
him so tightly that It was impossible lor
any one ol thy eotumilietj t,, see that
thev had been tampered .villi. Prof.
Ooke leuioVeJ the ropes If out about
his wrists a number of
times, bo that every one
iu the house could see him do it. lie
was tied in chllerent ways, ami would
every time release himself with porlect
ease. Indeed, Prof. Cooke performed
all tl e rope tricks known among spirit me
diums and explained uud illustrated
them to the satisfaction of his
audience, not excepting.tho spiritualists
present, other portion of She ciituin
uient were equally interesting, and all
went to prove tho utter ubsurdity of the
tefchiugs ot the spirit mediums.
When the Davenports were iu Cairo,
the spiritualists claimed that they were
aided in their performances by "spirits,"
and those who even dared to question
thla assertion were laughed at. They
the spiritualists asked everybody, "Do
you want anything more convincing:
Caii't you believe what you see with
your own eyes?'' The Davenports did
some very strange and ditlleult tricks
but Prof. Cooke'g exhibition on Sat
urday night was. a perfect
and convincing reputation ol the doc
trines of spiritualism. I rof. Cooke per
forms all his ''trickf" (they are nothing
but tricks) in full view of his audience;
und offers $500 to any medium who w ill
perform a trick that ho cannot duplicate.
He says that, to give him darkness, and
he will call up satan in all his hidcous
ncss, and spirit ot every size anc, for.
The readers ot the Ki Li.in iN lu the
past ytar have no doubt becomu famil
lar with the word bulldoze." A
lew month ago rarely a djy passed that
the dispatches lrom Louisiana did not
dwell upon that dcam u of tho South,
ltis a common a "snide," "slob,"
"gilly," hoodlum" or "masher," but
never belore have we been t ailed noon
to chronicle s, genuine case ol "bulldoz
ing" since the iuveiitliu ol that word.
It lias been a habit for years for deuitis
In vegetables and cattle to w ateh the ar
rival of the ferry-boat and bounce upon
the farmers of Kentucky and Missoutl
before the come ashore, and select the
lest of whatever thev may have for the
market. The competition here among
the different buyers is exciting, and on
some occasions very bitter.
Last Saturday, as usual, several of
these "merchants" were at tho landing
awaiting the arrival of the approaching
rerry. i wo young men (for instance we
will name them Green and
Smith), a vegetable dealer nnl a
butcher, were among the crowd. Green
and mith arc well known at the land.
Ititf. and are very talkative on other oc
casions, but ."Saturday morning they kept
themselves alool from the crowd, and
silently watched the approach ot a Mr.
Turnip, also a vegetable merchant. Tur
nip, apprehending no danger, was work
ing his way through to be among toe
first on the boat. Green and Smith,
assuming a serious air, approached Tur
nip and simultaneously presented a brace
of revolvers at his head, requesting him
to leave the place immediately or they
would "dispatth" him.
Turnip was almost paralized at this
critical turn affairs had taken. He sud
denly became pile as Jdcath,
his knees had a downward ten
dency, and, if Green and Smith had not
withdrawn the "deadly" weapons at
that moment, Turnip would Layn died a
victim of a cruel Joke. As toon as the
pistols were out of his sight, lie some
what recovered himself, and like a fly
ing shalt made for the levee, as though
the dcamons were at his heels.
Alter reaching the levee lie fell, com
pletely out ol breath, and remained there
until Green and Smith c line up from
the landing, uud explained that it w as a
joke and that the revolvers were nothing
more than two pistols lor firecrackers.
