A fair"6ized audience, and in the main
a critically-disposed audience, greeted
Paul Alexander Johnstone, famous as a
mind reader, on his first appearance in
Kock Island a". Harper's theatre last eve
oing. Mr. Johnstone, who is a man of
medium heigh-, and slender build, is ap
parently nervoatly disposed, and bears
an intelligent, thoughtful countenance.
He began his entertainment with a short
talk on the subject of mind reading,
speaking of his gift as something unex
plainable by himself, discountenancing
any of the icfl iences of spiritualism and
mesmerism iu the performance of his
feats. He speke of the principles under
which he worked as not unlike those of
photography. He wa9 the negative
force the audi :nce the positive. He sur
rendered his gi't c.f sight and worked in
darkness, with his audience as the light.
Instead cf h s itfl igncing his aud-
icrce as in mesmerism, he was
influenced ly the minds of
those wih 'vbom he worked. In
order to succe d in his tests the micd
with which he worked must be fullv in
sympathy with him it must concentrate
i's thought on a particular object and re
main so before it could lead and guide
A committee of citi. jnswas then in
vitcdonthe stae, Mr. Johnstone was
taken to the sn ea room by two of the
gentlemen acil blindfolded. In the
meantime a scarf pin had been concealed
in the audience by the committee. Mr.
Johnstone then :tppeivd. and taking the
arm of one of t:.e committeemen in his
own he made a l urried tour of the audi
ecee. He snoa located the immediate
neigttothord of pi ice of cocceilment of
the pin and after M-arching vainly fcr i
he i-kiried the 1) )ute ae.d returned again
an d finally fiund it. Oa re
turning to t te sta.re and re
in viuj the bat dige from his eyes he
asked if the pin h id not been hidden twice.
Being answered ia the affirmative he
stated that in other tests the object of
arch must not 'je concealed but ones, as
thefirit Impression on the mind was the
strougest, and thit to hide an object twice
would not only confuse the mind of the
committee but his own in consequence.
Mr. Johnstone retired again and the
committee taking Dr. Carter's cap placed
it on the head of William Jackson, seated
in another part of the house, placing Mr.
Jackson's hat or. Dr. Carter. The cap
and the hat were then taken
and concealed ia different parts of the
house. Mr. Johnstone found both the
hat. and the cp with difficulty, first
transposed them, acd then returned them
to their rightful cwners.
Then Mr Jo mstone performed the
most rt-tnar . aSie 'eat of the evening. He
ret:rd to be bliin fo'ibd, and meanwhile
Fred S'mss :n so k a (burger, went, into
HU-.ience i.d c.o:". mil ted a mental murder
oa dp'.. Ti ibert vothit r, troing through
all the motions !" a murderous blow.
The ii.iggf r was ence ded below the foot
lights, and Mr. & :aascn took a seat in
the rear of the l.ou:-e. The committee
then select; d as i jury to try the case,
Dr. Alexandt.-r, W. A. Reek, Wtrren
Beck, John BincK, M. B. Ijlehart and
Will D n, w-ih Gjd. W. A. S :hmitt as
j.dc, William ' actsoa ns state's t.ttor
ne, ii d Dr. Car'tr as counsel for the
defense. These gentlemen took
s-ats on the sifi;Te, and then returned to
their f irra r place ; ia the audience. Mr.
Johnstone tirst found the dagger, then
picked oat the sT i irjrccn, judge and
attorneys and sen, taem to the stage
Then he found the assassin, and go
icg to Capt. Koelder committed the blew
) jsl as it tad beet dealt by Mr. Staa?sen.
Going to the state he seated the jurors,
court and couns 1 cs-.ctly f.s they hud
originally seated taemse'vesou the slugc,
and thus fie performance closed. Mr.
Jobusione ie.ir.-d. and saying that his
sysier.i was loo nueh unstrung as a re
sult of 'die last ore el to dismiss the aud
ience, Dr . A'ex nder did it for him.
Tiik Au'n s i not inclii.ed to ptss
judgment on Mr. Johcstone's feats from
a s : -t.tiSc stan.lp ilnt. While there are
sktpticr aid tb-.-y v.cro piesent last
night who denounce Mr. Johnstone as
u lae, oLi.ers a-.si.ri ecat iiia is a
faculty for tnusce reading mhtr than
thought reading. Be that as it may, and
no iroit'C-r what bt the talent Mr. John
stone possesses he gives a remarkable en
tertainmert. Wh ither it is supernatual,
40 Years the Stanttstru.
or simply an txTiordinary manifestation
of abnormal and peculiar mental sym
pathy, has not been solved.
Mr. Johnstone appears strain tonight
