Notice.?If tho party who threw the

ho will hear of something to his ad?

about tivo minutes that mon of his talont

Ho can also make his ohoico of 105

No BOOM.?For two straight yoars the
Kickor has persistently opposed the idea
of a boom to attract altontion to our
town. Wo have watched this boom busi?

of certain speculators, but wo shall con

Wo own half a milo of side bill, which

havon't tho gall to boom it for a poach

have six railroads here, but wo can't
force ourselves to whoop-la! hurrah!
over tho prospect. We own about four

No, gentlemon, this town is what it
is and no more. It isn't going to bo a

within thirty miles of us. Wo simply

most of which will tako ''the other road"

Mosmorism alias hypnotism, tbo latost
scientific sensation of the hour, was a
few years since donouncod by tbo scienr
tiflo world in unmeasured terms. No ex?
pressions of scornful contoinpt were
strong enough to charactorizo thoso
fearless torch-buarors of advanced
thought, who, af tor patiently, oarnostly
and exhaustively investigating tho al?
leged powors of Mo8mor, proved boyond
tho possibility of a doubt tho genuino

They woro charlatans, impostors or
mentally unsound in tho eyes, not only
of tho medical profession, but tbo scien?
tific world, with somo fow nota lo ex?
ceptions. The moro charitably disposed
among tho groat conservative socictios
of scientific thinkers were content to re?
gard thoso who bolioved in such "ab?
surdities" a3 mermorism as "unduly
crodulous;" liable to be "duped;" and,
therefore, not "safo" or "critical invest?
Camillo Flammarion, tho illustrious
Fronch astronomer, in his rocont ro
markablo novel "Uranio," tolls us that
fifteen yoars ago ho communicated to
sovoral physicians thomagnotic phonom
ona observed by himself in tho courso
of many experiments. Ono and all de?
nied most positively and absolutely tho
possibility of the facts related, but on
meeting one of these same physicians at
tho Institute in Paris recently, ho
called his attention to his denial of tho
phenomena. "Oh!" replied tho physi?
cian, not without shrewdness, "then it
was magnetism, now it is hypnotism,
and it is we whoftndy it; that is a very
dilTcront thing." The astronomer wise?
ly adds by way of impressing the moral:
"Lot us deny nothing positively; let us
study: let us examine; the explanation
will come lator.''
A true scientist will tako cognizance
of the smallest fad, and though the
light that Moats before may appear a
mere will-o'-tho-wisp, he will follow it
until he demonstrates by careful, im?
partial, and exhaustive investigation
whether it rests on the bud-rock of
; truth or not, romembering that tho
; prejudices oT hoary thought and early
training may blind him to sensible ap?
preciation of tho true .significance of tho
problem that confronts him. It is not
moro than live yoars since a paper road
on "Hypnotism" in tho modical socioty
of a leading American city wasexeludod
from tho report of tho society's meeting,
on tho ground that tho subject was un
sciontific and absurd.
Less than a yoar ago tolopatby was as
much an outcast in tho scientific world
as mesmerism was aftor tho colobrated
Hailoy commission pronouncod it a
"fraud." Yot to-day telepathy, or
thought transference, is as well ostab
lishod a scientific fact as hypnotism.
From present indications wo aro en?
tering a now field of sciontillcdiscovory,
or to bo moro oxplicit, tho great body of
scientific thinkers aro expressing a will?
ingness to recognize phenomena other
than material, and to treat with a
measuro of respect tho views and dis?
coveries made by tho patient heralds of
psychic truths which bavo long been tab
booed as little worthy tho attention of
tbo materialistic scientific investigator,
. whoso eyes have boen accustomed to
rost on tho earth, its rocks, plants and
animals, as tho myths of bygone days.
Tho ago of electrical invention has been
so marvelous that men bavo ceased to
wonder at tho inventivo ingenuity of
i man. Tho ago of physchological dis
j eovery upon which we aro nowontorlng,

careful and unbiased attention of our
bust brains, will, wo believe, unfold a
world of truth, eclipsing in its startling
character as well as in its great utility
