MADE A NUISANCE OF HIMSELF
For some time past a man named
Hunter, a former Inmate of the lunatic

nuisance of himself at the Church of
the Unity by his noisy demonstrations
during services and by promiscuously
shaking hands with the members of the
congregation. Complaint was made at
police headquarters, and yesterday
morning Detective Goodman was on
hand to look out for him. Not wishing
to disturb the congregation, Goodman
went to the church early and waited for
Hunter to put in an appearance. When
be did so he was stopped by the officer
and Informed that his presence was not
desired at the church. He first pro
tested vigorously, saying that he was a
member of the church, and insisting that
he had a right to enter the building and
take part in the services. He finally
left, on the threat of arrest If he per

WITH THE SPIRITUALISTS

A Mystic Seance In the Bradbury
Block Last Night—Mrs. R. S. Lillie
on Harmonial Spiritualists.
Another highly Interesting Spiritual
istic entertainment was given by Medi
um Ben Barney in the Bradbury build
ing last night, at the nominal rate of 10
cents per capita. The meeting was
opened by a short address by Mr. Bar
ney, in which he outlined the work ac
complished by Spiritualists during the
past few years. The medium thinks the
Spiritualistic societies ought to be rec
ognized by the law Just the same as oth
er religious orders.
Referring to the condition of mind In
which persons often approach mediums
when seeking information, Mr. Barney
said that he never promised information
on any particular subject. Persons who
want to know certain things that will
be sure to be pleasing would, do well to
consult Medium John Slater.
After concluding his introductory re
marks, the medium essayed to demon
strate his supernatural power by a se
ries of tests. A number of questions
had been placed on a table, addressed to
departed friends in the spirit world. The
medium would pick these up and read
the contents by means of his wonderful I
occult power without opening them,
and then, through the Influence of the
spirit of his dead father, would give ad
vice on the matter inquired about, be it
an affair of love or business.
Picking out an envelope from the
pile before him, Mr. Barney held lt aloft,
saying: "I hear the name of Marion
Reynolds Fox. Is the gentleman pres- i
ent?" The bearer of the name arose. ]
"Mr. Fox, will you state, on your honor, I
that it was impossible for me to know 1
the contents of this letter?" "I will," i
replied Mr. Fox. The contents of the I
letter, which reiated to some private
interest, were then stated and assented
to by Mr. Fox.
A number of other questions were then i
fairly satisfactorily answered. A sound- j
ins board was introduced, upon which
the Invisible spirit tapped responses to
a number of questions.
Picking up an envelope, the medium I
said addressing theowner: "I see some
one sewing continually; you are a tail
or, are you not?" "No, sir," came thil j
response; "I am a fresco painter." "Oh, I
yes," said the medium; "you are right; j
it was mixing paints that I saw you, but
then, that was lriy fault, as I was mis
taken, and not the spirits."
As the medium began to feel his Influ
ence rapidly ebbing away, the test was
brought to a close, after which a collec- !
tion was taken and the meeting ad-
HARMONIAL SPIRITUALISTS. I
Mrs. R. S. Lillie of Boston, who has
been speaking for the Harmonial Spirit
ualists, gave her farewell address last
evening, the subject being, The Status
]of Spiritualism. After tracing briefly
the history of modern Spiritualism, she !
said it has now reached a position where
it Is by many thousands in America and !
elsewhere considered a religion, and is
rapidly gaining respect and considera
tion. The organization of the national
association, having auxiliary societies
lin every city of the land, has given a
great impetus to the movement. It Is
not yet so well organized that lt can,
like the churches, hold free meetings,
but it soon will be, and then there will j
be less support for sensationalists and
frauds who now find It profitable to mas
querade under the name of Spiritualism,
bringing it Into disrepute and disgust
ing sensible and honest Inquirers.

law of life which operated a thousand
years ago operates today and will op
erate a thousand years to come. "What
soever a man sowetU, that shall he also
reap," la universal In its action and ef
fect. The drama of life is ever repeating
itself. Dally somebody is illustrating
the workings ot the laws of cause and
effect. Those laws are persistent. In
their record we have a volume, not of
possibilities, but of certainties.
We can always tell what principles
are safe, what companionships 1 are de
sirable, what will be the result of cer
tain courses of conduct. There would
nave been few if any wrecks in this elty
had no one Imagined he could do with
impunity what others could not do. Let
no one say, "I did not konw what I was
doing." A voice whose assertion cannot
be denied answers. "Behold. I told you
beforehand." Andi a thousand other
voices cry, "All this folly an* Its out
come has again and again been wrought
in your sight."
We also know of the future through
the Bible—lts record of Individual and
r.atioal life and its specific statements.
The biblical record corroborates our
observations. In our everyday observa
tions we see only partsof lives or courses
of coniduct. and in the constant change
and interlacing of events about us, we
often forget to notice the story which
is constantly being told for our instruc
tion, and the end is often far from the
beginning. The Bible narratives are a
classified exhibit of how sin and' godli
ness work, of the reaping which follows
the sowing. They are a mirror of lmman
life In all ages, so that every man and
nation should know at the outset the
moral outcome o» any course of con
duct or system of policy, but so that the
right is seen as beinpr right, and the
wrong is seen to be wrong. The por
trayals of sin from Genesis to Revela
tion are pictured with terrible but never
exaggerated fidelity, so that the tempted
will sec what will come of the criminal
or careless deed, nnd never is the pic
ture so drawn as to deaden the sense
of delicacy- or to make it easier to sin.
And with as great fidelity to nature and
grace, the outcome of faith, truth and
godliness is thrown up into the light.
Andi how- the future opens through the
explicit statements of the Scriptures!
I want to know what fruits the deeds
of today will bear tomorrow. My heart
is not at rest until I know whether there
is a life beyond and of w hat sort lt is.
I find the language of the Bible to he
full of foregleams of a future life. The
Scriptures leave a thousand things un
answered', and purposely so. But with
exceeding care and fullness they put
in clearest statement what will insure
our well-being in that world whose light
Is so soon to break in upon our slight.
There need be no disappointment at
the portals of the now unseen world.

The Educational Work of the Associa
The afternoon meeting yesterday was
one especially for students of the even
ing classes and other schools of the city.
After reading of Scriptures by Mr. How
ard, chairman of the educational com
mittee, and prayer by Prof. Bransby of
the Spanish classes, Dr. G. W. White,
president of the University of Southern
California, gave an eloquent address.
He said: "I commend the method and
purpose of the educational work of the
Young Men's Christian association, and
I wish to speak of education In its re
sults upon your mental and moral char
acter. You have only one life to live,
and you cannot afford to make mistakes
willfully. There are some things that
can't be made up to us when lost. If
we neglect to make all we possibly can
of ourselves, we make a grievous mis
take. A man may be saved, as Paul
teaches, who has wasted his life, but he
will suffer loss, even in eternity.
"I am often humiliated, when I hear
education spoken of and urged from
mere mercenary motives. Educatijn
does not command the highest commer
cial value —yet looking at it from the
highest standpoint, lt is invaluable. If
a man spends an hour a day for 300 days.
In reading, at the end of that time he has
read thirty volumes of 300 pages each,
which is In Itself quite a library. Ellhu
Burritt mastered' eighteen languages
and twenty-two dialects between the
age of 40 and 60 years. This was done by
study in the evenings, after having
worked all day at the blacksmith's forge.
The greatest star discoverer of our day
is a man in Chicago, who has spent his
days as a court reporter, but his nights
as a student of the heavens. The man
who loves knowledge and who desires
to broaden himself will find some op
portunity for self-improvement. In the
beginning of my ministry an old preach
er said to me: 'Young man, If I stood
where you do, I would makeup my mind
to know something and know lt well."
His words have rung In my ears ever
since. A man's life Is measured by his
knowledge. Christ said: 'This is eter
nal life, to know God.' To know some
thing—to know God. Any man can make
himself at home In a realm of knowl
edge that seems to lie outside of his en
vironment, if he will only resolve to do
so. The man who Is simply a money
getter does not, to my mind, represent
the highest type of manhood. I know
men who use their opportunities for
mental advancement. I suppose many of
you are Christians and desire to fit your
selves for more effective Christian work.
Then study the word of God and beeVime
familiar with It. so as to teach lt. When
God wanted a man to lead the children
of Israel out of captivity and to commit
his law- to the world, he chose Mos?s,
who was fitted by his life and the high
est education royalty could give him for
a leader. He was not so much of a
talker as he was a thinker. God chose
Paul, who was educated In the best
school of his day, as the missionary to
the Gentiles and. to establish churches
among them. God wants you young
i men to make the most of yourselves. The
Bible points to the way of life and warns
of the way of death."
AT BOYLE HEIGHTS.
Rev. Edwin Johnson of Minneapolis
Fills the Pulpit.
The Right Rev. Bishop Johnson was to j
have preached, at the Episcopal church !
on St. Louis street, Boyle Heights, last
evening! but owing to his being detained !
In Pasadena by illness, the pulpit was
ably filled by the Rev. Edwin Johnson
of Minneapolis, a relative of the bishop.
Mr. Johnson took his text from
Isaiah xxviii., 20: "The bed is shorter
than that a man can stretch himself up
on It. and the covering narrower than
that a man can wrap himself In it."
The Bible is remarkable in dealing
with the two extremes of the greatest,
grandest and most glorious things of life,
and the simplest and most lowly, said,
the speaker. This is illustrated In the
Christmas story—the angel choir in all
Its beauty, and the humble stable and
manger, and the simple, tender babe.
It is ours now by the cultivation and
development of the mind and heart and
will in the know ledge of and love for and
devotion to the high and great and best
things of life, to secure to ourselves, for
our present good and future happiness,
tlte quiet, assurance, peace and rest that
come with such possession, so that in the
end we may dread the grave as little as
our bed; and that when the end shall
have come, and the body reclines in its
last resting place, while the spirit is re
turned to God, who gave it, we may feel
indeed that underneath are the ever
lasting arms and over us the eternal
protection, and in that peace and rest
and comftort know that our bed is all
sufficient for full reclining and the cov
ering ample for our complete enwrap
ping through all eternity.
Boy Run Over and Killed by a Southern
A Mexican boy named Johnson, aged
about V 2 years, was run over and In
stantly killed by an cast-bound freight
train on the Southern Pacific, at the
Daly street crossing. East Los Angeles,
yesterday afternoon about 2 oclock.
The body was terribly mangled, thirteen
freight cars having passed over It. There
were no eye witnesses to the accident,
though one or two persons saw the boy
just before he was killed.
A mining man named Crowley, who
was riding in one of the box cars, says
that he saw the boy running along the
track by the side of the cars, and a boy
named Verde stated that he noticed the
boy sitting down by the side of the track
fixing his shoe.
From the indications it would appear
that the boy was running along by the
side of the train, and as he passed Daly
street attempted to jump on one of the
cars. At this crossing there is a space
three or four inches wide between the
rail and the planking, and the boy's foot
slipping caught in the slot, threw him
to the ground and under the cars, the
wheels passing over his rlpht hip and
arm, crushing them in a frightful man
ner and probably causing instantaneous
The coroner's office was notified, and
the body removed to the undertaking
establishment of Kregelo & Rresee, on
South Broadway, where the inquest will
be held today.
The boy's parents reside near the
scene of the accident.
