The lark is silent in its nest,
The daisy shuts 1U weary eye,
And, softly rising from the west,
Iteep shades of evening veil the sky ;
But though the sun awhile has lot.
And Bight its bannet has unfurled,
Though darkness gathers around me, yet
"It's morning somewhere in the world."
Some paths are bright, though mine is dim ;
Some hearts rajoioa, though mine la sad ;
Some miaa a sweet thanksgiving hymn.
While I recall the joysouoe had.
"it's always morning somewhere;" so
This life hath charm as well aa care ;
For, like the plant that round ui grow,
Alternate light and abade we share
When troubles, therefore, o'er my way
Its heavy gloom and sadness Dings,
I wait with patience till a ray '
Of early sunrise comfort brings ;
I wait and watch with fearleas brow,
For though no atar may gem my night,
It' a morning somewhere even oow.
And I am. traveling towards the light
"It's always msrning somewhere." Yea,
God'i love has never Ix-en withdrawn ;
The shadows that around us press
Are but the curtains of the morn.
Fair flowers would lose each tinted leaf
Bat for the night dewson the earth ;
And oft in loneliness and grief
The purest pleasures have their birth.
Our life at best is checkered here ;
Some hours are dark and others bright ;
But in that world that knows no fear;
It's always morning, always light.
Ka light ia there, not one faint trace
Of il Is forever paased away
For when we aee our Saviour a face
Ilia smile will make et rnal day.

the exquisitely tender skin, and at the

inse of misery, as.I.htjld on by a young

I was shown into the back parlor of a
comfortably furnished house, where the

A brief conversation with my colleague
ensued, and he told me what he feared
and how he was situated, another im
portant call demanding his nresence.
The result was that I agreed that we
would examine the patient, and then I
would stay till Dr. Barker's return.
A faint groan from the mattress sa

and as I held the lamp over his face, and
the light fell upon the fair hair and leng

Quite an interesting and somewhat
startling event transpired at Terre Haute,
Ind.. last week, at the seance givn
by Mrs. Ann Stewart, a noted medium,
under the auspices of a committee of
gentlemen composed of Ir. Fence and
other prominent spiritualists ot this city.
Mrs. Stewards phase of power consists
principally in materisdizationa of disem
bodied spirits. On this occasion some
twenty persons, ladies and gentlemen, as
sembled and were seated about the ros
trum in close proximity to the cabinet.
In this semi-circle wa judge A., of Ver
mont, a gentleman of acknowledged tal
ent and crulture, and a recent convert to
This gentleman claims to have re
ceived, through the mediumship of Mrs.
Stewart, the mot convincing evidence
of the fact that his late wi.'e has actually
returned to earth, and, bearing tidings
from the angel world, held sweet com
munion with him. Some weeks since
the judge received imp re ions that she
had a surprise in store for him ; to go to
Terre Haute, and she would again meet
him there. In obedience to these sum
mons he became singularly conxpicious
in a thrillinir scens enartirl during the
progress of this evening's seance. At 7
o'clock Mrs. Stewart entered the cabinet,
the lights were turned down and quiet
prevailed, broken only by the sweet and
trembling vibrations of the doctor's
music-box, a condition necessary to as
sist the controlling spirit to more freely
materialize. Some twenty minutes were
in this manner whirled away, when the
door of the cabinet opened, dmcliming an
angelic figure arrayed in a complete
bridal costume of snow-white texture,
indescribably beautiful. The vail, which
appeared like a fleecy vanor, encircled
her brow, and Wing caught at the tem
ples, fell in graceful folds, and seemingly
almost enveloping her entire lorm. Thus,
like treading on the clouds, the form
walked softly out upon the rostrum.
The judge, who had rev ived spiritual
intelligence of what was about to occur,
at once recognized the materialization an
that of his departed wile, and, exhibiting
considerable feeling, mingled with much
dignity of manner, approached her with
anectionate greeting," and placed within
her gloved hand a boquet of rare flow
ers, imprinting upon her lips a fervent
kiss. "Are you ready?" inquired the
doctor. " We are, responded the judge.
Justice Denehie, of this city, then step

hands of the couple, in a lew well-choseu

fidelity were exchanged, pledges of love
were made anew. At the conclusion of
this ceremony the spirit bride received
the congratulations of the company pres

the threshold of the cabinet a dazzling

the audience a spirit face of marvelous

Maskelcviie,the Witness Against Slade.
Mr. Jennings writes to the New York
Times that ifaskeleyne, a principal wit
ness in the prosecution of Slade, has
made a fortune by inventing a litile me
chanical figure. " It is dressed up like a
Turk, has a glass pillar beneath him, and
when you have walked all around him
and seen that no wires connect him with
an electrical or any other apparatus, the
Turk plays a hand in a game of whist
three iersons from the audience playing
the other hands. Mr.Mnkeleyne merely
calls out each card as it is laid ution the
table. The Turk draws his card from a
little stand where his thirteen are ar
ranged in front of him, and Mr. Mask e
leyne takes it and puts it on the others.
I went to see this prodigy the other day,
and as all the scientific men in Iindon
have been there, and Mr. Maskeleyne
has afforded them every facility lor
making a thorough examination of the
figure, and as none of them have been
able to discover the secret, I need not
tell you that I am quite in the dark res
pecting it. The figure is completely iso
lated lrom curtains or machinery, elec
tricity could not be employed, and any
of the audience may pw-s a cane or um
brella lieneath or round about it, or ex
ercise it in anyway. It is certainly a
wonderful piece of mechanism for mech
anism Mr. Maskeleyne tells you dis
tinctly it is and he challenges all the
world to find out how it is made, or by
what means it is worked. I may add as
a curious fact that the spiritualists as
sert that Mr. Maskeleyne is himself a
"medium" of uncommon jxiwers, but
that he chooses to deny it, and finds it
more profitable to ascril " the more won
derful actions of his "Psycho" (as the
figure is called) to merely natural causes.
Mr. Maskeleyne himself declares that
he is a sworn foe to spiritualism, and
that he will never rest until he has cov
ered all its disciples and prophets with
shame ami contusion. In the meantime
he has found it necessary to give two
performances everyday; nil the town
flock to them, ami it is necessary to se
cure seats a fortnight l foreharid. I de
clare that I am at a loss to know whether
it is more profitable U be a medium or
only an exposer of mediums. Both pur
suits pay much lietter than hard work.
