A CROWDED HOUSE.
A bous9 packed almost foil gieeted the
l.ees asain last night in the marvelous
performance of hypnotism and mesmer?
ism. After a short introductory tatk by
Mr.Bee on hypnotism as practiced in In?
dia, the cradle of this science, in which
he explained how some of the apparently
unaccountable phenomena were perform
ed'.by native fakirs and," jugglers, by means
of hypnotic suggestion. A sail was made
for volunteer'.subjeets. In response to this
some sixty persons, among them men
well-known In Ronnoke, came upon the
?tage. Among this number twenty-five
or mote were found amenable to hyp?
notic influences, and thesa began the fun
for the audience. Laughing, dancing,
singing and nl1 sirts of ludicrous per?
formances'were the order of Jthe evening.
Among, the hallucinations practiced upon
the subjects was an i maginary trip in a
balloon; the formation of the class into a
singing school, in which each vied with
the of'er to see who could sing the most
lustily; the sending of* two young men
through the audience to cry their wares
for sale ?tbe one a basket of fish, the
other hoky poky ice cream. Five sub?
jects, all Roanoke men, were thrown into
cataleptic f ranco and whilst In this con?
dition a human "pile was built of their
bodies, sustained on chairs only by neck
and heels, upon which Mr. Lee himself
also sprang. Towards the close of the
performance, the young man who was
put to sleep on Monday night, nnd who
has'laid since then in a cataleptic trance
in the show windows of Johnsen & John?
son, was brought in and wakened from
his forty-eight hours sleep. One of the
physicians present on Monday night
came forward and examined him: upon
comparison with the weight on Monday
night, he was found to have lost five
pounds, one ounce. To all appearance,
he seemed as one just wakened from a
deep sleep, and bore no outward signs of
..any discomfort resulting from is. The
performance will be continued through?
out, the week, and from the crowds at?
tracted it is evident that the people are
attracted by something more than mere
curiosity. A change of programme will
be made each night.

Virginia Legislature Will be Asked to
Prohibit the Game.
Kicbmond, Nov. 24. -The King's
Daughters of Virginia and othersopposed
to football as it is now played will make
a'strong fight at this session of the legis?
lature for the enactment of a law to pro?
hibit the game.
Mrs. Malvern C. Patterson, the chair?
man of the City Union of the Daughters,
and the wife of a prominent business man
here, is actively engaged in orgaoi/.ing a
war against the game.
The State of Virginia appropriates an?
nually $40,000 to the University, and is
almost a? liberal with several other lead?
ing institutions. The anti-football cham?
pions will probably oppose these appro?
priations uniess the legislature should
pass the desired law.
