Lomion, Dee. 13. Major-Oen. Sir
Alfred Turner, the well known nrltlsh
soldier, who has written hooks on many
subjects and whoso recent ghfst stories
attracted much attention. tells Tin: SDN
correspondent that he has discovered a
medium to materialize unfailingly spirit
ual forms nnd to obtain other remarkable
psychic phenomena. The name of this
medium Is Cecil Husk. He Is 70 years
old nnd completely blind. Ills seances
nre held In a house at Peckham on Sun
day only owing to falling health.
Sir Alfred says he has been acquainted
with Husk for many years and that he
wa originally a singer In Carl Uosa's
opera company. Husk's sister won fame
as the creator of th part of Laity Anpfta
In Gilbert and Sullivan's "Patience." Sir
Alfred says he did not care to tell the
public about this wonderful man as he
did not deem It worth while to attempt
to convince the scoffers. "Put now." he
adds, "I feel that at my age I should
let the world know what I have seen
personally and help to spread my knowl
edge of the truth of spiritualism.
'Husk Is one of the few mediums T

having something to say to every oni

"'It's all true, it's all tiue. Let tlie
good work go on.'
"Iteferilng to the Titanic disaster, he
told us that It v.-ns not true that he had
been hit on the head with a spar, but

to be placed In the cathedtal. Almost the
Ilrst thing he saw was a landscape win-

for a private house. He was wildly en-
thuslastlc about It at once.
"That's exactly what I want" h- e.-

would have none- of It. Mrs. Canieglc
didn't agree vv.th him. She wanted a win-

think. Mr. Carnegie argued with her. but
sho didn't see his point of view. When he
left he had ordered destgnx drawn for a

One of Mr. George's assistants leniem-

Carnegie, "lie turned to me." said this
man, "and he told me to have patterns

lowered hl.i voice and said:
" 'Hut don't make the figures In the

Mrs. Carnegie to like It. You know,
women g nerally have their own way and
this time I want to have my way." He
-Ainttrd and smiled and went out. As oon

No ubjectlcns that could be raised had the

tiously: 'How much would sou give me
to send you over?' The artist's reply was
pot serious and so tliododendrons titled

"Mr. Oarnoilo came In, usually wilh
