SPIRIT, LAND MESSAGES.
Do They All Really Come kFro~n Minds
of the Living?
Perhaps all the so- called 'messages
fom the dead come from living minds.
I mean the minds of those about us.
Dr. Reed, a friend of mine, once ar
ranged to go with a patient to have a
test sitting with a very celebrated
psychic who claimed to be able to read
sealed letters.' Just befdre the apa
pointed day Reed's patient died sud
denly of heart disease, leaving-a sealed
letter on his desk.
The doctor, fully alive to the sin
guar opportunity. put the'letter in his
pocket and hastened to the medium.
The magician took it in his hand and
pondered. At last he said: "This was
written by a man now in the spirit
world. I cannot read it There isn't
a medium in 'the world who can read
it, but if you will send It to' any per
son anywhere on the planet and have
it read and resealed I will tell you
what is in It. I cannot get the words
unless some mind In the earth plarne
has absorbed them.."
That would seem to prove a sort of
universal mind reservoir, wouldn't it?
Isn't that a staggering hypothesis?

For a few moments the miniature

Mrs. Greene. She seized a clothes

of the saws.
"Madam." said Whitney, overcome
with emotion and speakng with the
exaggeration of gratitude. "you have
perfected my invention."
