Will Test Law. Mrs. S. J. Hender
son and Mrs. Kittie Gifford have been
notified by the police that they must
take out licenses as clairvoyants. The
ladies deny that they are fortune tel
lers, maintaining that they are spiritu
alists. They will have a hearing be
fore Mayor Phillips next Friday. The
matter arose out of meetings held ev
ery Friday evening at Mrs. Hender
son's rooms in the South Putnam build
ing. These meetings, the ladies say,
are spiritualistic seances. The police
have been told that readings are given
and that Mrs. Henderson and Mrs. Gif
ford come under the legal classifica
tion of clairvoyants and should pay a
license as such. The ladies, however,
deny this. They claim that they are
engaged in spiritualistic work. They
get their strength from the unseen
powers and enlist the aid of the depart
ed for the living. No readings, no for
'une telling, nor anything else of a like
nature is given, they maintain. Mrs.
Kittie Gifford was formerly of Chi
:ago but now resides in Clinton. Iowa.
The investigation promises to unearth
features of unusual interest in the way
of what really constitutes fortune tell
ing. The ladies will resist the attempt
to force them to pay a license.
