Dr. Cook and His Peouliar Powers—The Adventures of Major Toler's Coat—A Bell-Ringing Spook. The Los Angeles theater last night was packed to the doors—not even standing room being obtainable at 8 o'clock—to witness the "Scientific Manifestations" of Dr. Henry Cook, of New York, who is said to be one of the best exemplifies of tbe work of spiritual mediums now before tbe public. The audience waa a representative one in character, many of tbe best people being present. Shortly after 8 o'clock Mr. Cook, who is a mid dle-aged man of pleasing address, stepped on the stage and requested the audience to select several prominent citizens to act as an investigating com mittee. "I do not make any claims as to how I bring about results which you have seen accomplished by spiritual me diums," said Mr. Cook, "I simply sub mit the phenomena to you and allowjyou to draw your own conclusions." Several names were suggested from different parts of the large audience, and finally the following gentlemen were selected: Dr. Wise, Judge Whitney, Major Toler, and C. W. Innes. When the gentlemen took their places on the stage Mr. Cook began hia entertainment by giving a number of ingenious ex amples of elate writing. It was only when he turned to the cabinet manipu lations, however, that the audience be came warmly interested. The cabinet used was made of four ' upright posts with a curtain draped around them. Mr. Cook then took several yards of stout cord and requested the committee to tie him securely to a chair placed inside of the curtain. They did bo, and sealed the knots with sealing wax. The curtain was lowered and then bells were heard ringing and several banjos tossed out of the cabinet. Major Toler was then asked to sit down in front of Mr. Cook in the cabinet and place his hands firmly on his knees. The curtains were drawn for fifteen sec onds and then opened, and in that space of time Major Toler s coat had been taken off and was on Mr. Cook, and the best of the trick was that Major Toler was not aware that his coat had been removed. Tbe cords were exam ined, and the sealing wax and peculiar knots tied by the committee were found to be intact. The coat was then sewed securely by the committee at the sleeve openings and in front, and on the car tain being cloeed it WW-jlext found to be on Major Toler with the sewing in tact. Major Toler says he felt many hands but could see nothing. During the above experiments all the lights in the house were turned on, full force. Another ingenious experiment was the tying of Mr. Cook to a pole with bis hands behind his back and tying his feet and body in such a manner that it was apparently impossible for him to move. A blank card was placed in front of him, and the curtain closed for ex actly two seconds, when the card was found to contain a long written extract from one of Bulwer's plays. Quite a number of equally difficult feats were then accomplished, to the pro found mystification of the audience. Mr. Cook then sent for an ordinary kitchen table, and asked the committee to hold it down securely on the stage. In a few minutes it was lifted several feet and dragged the committee all over the stage. Finally several of thegentle men jumped on tbe table and were lifted four or five feet from the floor. The manifestations were received with hearty aoplause and Mr. Cook suc ceeded in puzzling alike the committee and the audience. One of the committee was tied in the cabinet and the lights turned half down. The curtain opened and a ghastly look ing figure arryed in shroud-like gar ments issued ringing a bell, and then returingn to the cabinet. The experi ment struck the committee as a decided case of "apookß," although the commit teeman inside the cabinet strongly as serted that he saw nothing. One feature about Mr. Cook's manifestations is that they are done with full light and with tbe simplest accessories, i Water-damaged table' linens, towels and bedspreads. today, at City of Paris. Bellevue Lviug-In Institute. Mrs. Dr .J. H Smith's lying-in Institute has been kept for tbr'-e ye»rp, and has done a good business daily and is still increasing.
