Getting Rid of the Spirits.
spiritualism first made
its appearanco In the village
of ,old Deacon Isaacs, a
wealthy man, who had stood
by the church for nearly three
score, years, was exceedingly
bitter against all believers In
the -devil's work," as he called
it, and denounced spiritualism
in no very gentle language
Imagine the Deacon's ' anger,
then, when six months after
ward he found it had worked
its way into his bVn family,
and not only were his wife and
daughters believer, but one of
them was a medium, and pos
sessed lull power to, converse
with the SDirits of those who
had departed to that "bourne
from which no traveler returns.
Deacon Isaacs was mad-
dreadfully mad but he bad
wit enough not to show it, and
he bore the taunts of the un
godly with a meek spirit. He
knew it would be useless to de
clare open war, for Mrs. Isaacs
alone had always proved hi ore
than a match for him, and he
was sure to be defeated. Be
must "circument the critter,"
as he expressed it, and to that
end he sat himselt to work.
tie was a roan ot sound judg
ment, and his worldly experi
ence ot titty years was not
thrown away. From the day
it first came to his knowledgn
that his wife and daughters
were spiritualists, he never
spoke a word against nor did
he ever allude td it, except in
general terms in. bis morning
prayers; but any one could see
hat it troubled him, lor be was
absent minded, his eyes wan
dered restlessly, and his coun
tenance looked care Worn.
The Deacon witnessed one
I IS 'I
or two ''sittings" at his house
and was satisfied that it he
possoRsed a little more knowl-
ed he could get rid df the ail
noyance. So one morning he
atarted tor the city, determin.
ed to thoroughly investigate
the subject before he returned.
Alter visiting one or two of
ihe most popular mediums, and
paying hia money, he returned
home satisfied that he could
''see through it."
There was a "sitting" at the
Deacon's house on the night he
returned, and his daughter Ma
ry the medium Invited the
Deacon to take a seat at the
table, 'which;' to her gratifica
tion was accepted The spirits
were in good tutie, and so ex
ceedingly communicative that
the Deacon wis induced to ask
a lew questions, which were
readily answered, and wife and
daughters were in extacies at
the thought, that father would
vet be i believe, and urged

were beautilully shown before
Iho Royal geographical society,
recently, by a eimple expert
meet. A trough with plate
glass sides, about six teet lonp
and a foot deep, but riot more
than an inch wide, was filled
with water. At one end a
piece1 was wedged in between
the sides to represent the polar
cold, while the tropic heat wai
represented at the other end b
a bar of metal laid across the
Burtace of the water, the pro
jecting end of which was Seat

the warm end, and the blue at
the cold end, so' that the cur
rents could could be traced.
The blue water, chilled by
contact with the ice, immedi
