read up a little on the latent results of the researches of the greatest minds of the universities 01
Vurope on th t occult science of the an ilents. These great scientists unhesitatingly pronounce
Professor Leonard the most wonderlully gifted living person pot-ses-ed of these strange powers
Any attempt to give ■ comprehensive explanation of the apparently supernatural power pos
sessed by a few Individuals ln each generation is almost useless, for the science o' the soul
Is scarcely advanced enough to be oven entitled to the name of science at all By advanced in
quirers and students of the subjeot, no more rational exnlanalion of the phenomena has been
obtained than that embraced in the philosophy of giddhartha Oau ama, the fouudor of what
we know as Buddhism. Cer aln it 1b that ln ludla history and observation both teach us re
markable foreknowledge and "second sight" are more common thau in any other part of the
earth. The explanation In the simplest terms Is that occasionally a soul by peculiar conditions
of tbe previous incarnation* develops one "round wave" in advance of the present race. Be
that explanation the coirect one or not, the fact is wonderful power of catching a full view of
the panorama of souls and unseen things is p >ssessed by some individuals where ordinary mor
tals are unable to gain any knowledge, th >ugh striving with an iutense longing to do so. No one
In the presen' generatlou possesses this power in greater degree than Professor Leonard, who
uses it only to the advantage of the human race, and to aid those who need the knowledge.

THE ASIATICS.
How the Spread of Christianity Among
the Chinese Is Impeded.
Toronto, Sept. 26.—At the evening
session of the Pan-Presbyterian council,
the discussion was on a paper on The
Asiatics, by Rev. A. J. Kerr, of San
Francisco, who claimed that the spread
of Christianity among the Chinese
was sadly impeded by the manner in
which the Chinese in America were
treated by government and the people.
Canadian speakers suggested that repre
sentation should he made to the govern
ment of Canada, and the United States
deprecating the manner in which the
Chinese were treated by both govern
ments. Dr. George said the rec
ord of the United States with regard
to Chinese was as infamous as the Dred
Scott decision. Dr. Waters, of Newark,
N. J., asked tbe council to look carefully
at the reasons of the government of the
United States and Canada for excluding
Chinese. Dr. Cochran, of Ontario,
introduced a resolution instruct
ing the secretary to prepare
a strong protest against tbe continuance
of the oppression and inhuman treat
ment of Chinese seeking entry to the
United States and Canada. It was
amended so as to include Australia, and
referred to the business committee.

SOMEWHAT WILD AND WOOLLY.
An Antl-Cathollo Lecturer Plays Havoc
with Two Pistols.
Cheyenne, Wyo., Sept. 26.— T. J.
Lyons, editor of the St. Joseph (Mo.)
American, attempted to lecture here last
night on Romanist Influence in the
Public Schools. He received an inti
mation of trouble, and when he ap
peared on the stage, exhibited two six
shooters, which he said he would use if
necessary to protect himself. He was
frequently interrupted during the lec
ture, and at last called upon a police
man and the ushers to clear the hall.
Amid a scene of wild confusion this was
partially accomplished. When nearly
all the people were out, Lyons took a re
volver in each hand and started to leave
the ball. As he reached tbe door,
Patrick Nolan, a policeman, attempted
to disarm him. A crowd closed
!iu upon the two, and Lyons
commenced shooting. Tbe tiring be
came general, and fully thirty shots were
fired. Patrick Moore, a boiler-maker,
was seriously wounded. Policeman Bo
lan was stabbed in the face and neck.
This scattered the crowd, and Lyons,
with a body guard of friends, reached
his hotel.
An excited crowd threatened to lynch
him, and surrounded the hotel. Sheriff
Kelly arrested Lyons in his room, and
took his revolvers from him, after which
he was taken to Fort Russell for safe
keeping.
Lyons is supposed to have come here
under the auspices of an anti-Catholic
organization, which exists in this city.
It is not known who did the stabbing of
the policeman.
Lyons eecured bail today. Both of
the wounded men will recover.

this regard he leaves nothing to be mis
understood or misconstrued."

They Will Discuss Cahenslyisin and
Other Ouestlons at Newark, N. jr.
Newark, N. J., Sept. 2o—The sixth
annual convention of German Catholic
Societies of the United States is in sea
f .onin this city. Two thousand dele
gates are in attendance. Archbishops
Corrigan and Katzer are among the
prominents expected. The question of
parochial schools and the principles of
Cahenslyism are matters likely to be ex
tensively considered.
Tonight public exercises were held.
There were over 4000 men in a torch
light procession, with 35 bands. Upon
the arrival of the procession at Caledo
nian park, there was a grand welcome
reception. Addresses were made by

Cotton Spinner* Will Strike.
London, Sept. 26 —At the recent meet
ins; of the executive council of tbe
Master Cotton Spinners' federation in
Manchester, replies from firms repre
senting over 18,000,000 spindles, in favor
of enforcing a 5 per cent, reduction
in wages, were considered. A commit
tee, consisting of the president ot
the Federation and chairman of
the Local Maßters' associations, was
appointed to confer with the Op
eratives' association with a view
to getting the cotton spinners to ac
cept the propoeed reduction. Overtures
to this end were made, with tbe result
that the operatives declined to accept
tbe masters' proposal. The federation
will, it is thought, now attempt to force
a reduction on the men. A general
strike of cotton operatives will probably
be the outcome.
THE WAR IN VENEZUELA.
BOTH SIDES STILL CLAIMING TO
HAVE THE ADVANTAGE.
Friend* of the Revolutionists Say the
Present Government Is on Its Last
Legs—Crespo Closing? rw
on Caracas.
New York, Sept. 26—The eteamer
Caracas, from Venezuelan ports, ariived
this afternoon. She reports seeing the
United States steamers Chicago and
Kearsarge at La Guayra and the Con
cord at Puerto Cabello. As- the latter
port is held by the insurgents or
Crespists, a dozen marines from the
Concord were sent on board the Caracas
during her stay in the harbor, guarding
against any attempted indignities. None
were attempted.
Sefior Peraza, the Venezuelan sain
ieter, wae at the dock to meet hie wife
and son who came on the Garaoae. The
young man is said to be the bearer of
dispatches from the government relative
to the ship SoHth Portland, but nothing
was learned from him or his father.
They stated, however, that the newa
from Venezuela was very encouraging
for the government. General Monagaa
was about to march for Puerto Cabello
at the head of an army of 5,000 men,
and give battle to Crespo. The latter
and Guerrera, the two chief revolution
ists, were said to be quarreling and a
duel was imminent.
Friends of the revolutionists, several
of whom came on the Caracas, give,
however, an entirely different story
from Peraza's. They say the present
government is on its last legs, and ia
not recognized outside of Caracas. All
the ports where customs receipts are
taken are in the hands of the "revolu
tionists. Crespo, they sav,occupies
Valencia and La Guayra with TWO men,
and is slowly encircling Caracas and cut
ting off supplies. He could capture the
city now, but that would result in much
bloodshed, which he wishes to avoid.
The Crespists report that there was a
battle near Barqnisimento a few days
before the steamer sailed, between 2200
revolutionists under General Colico and
a strong force of government troops.
Colino was victorious. Five hundred
were killed and wounded on both sides.
Washington, Sept. 26 —Secretary Fos
ter says there is no reason to believe
that Minister Scruggs is not as free as
air, or that there are the slightest signs
of strained relations between the United
States and Venezuela. The secretary
said the department bad been in com
munication with Scruggs Bince Saturday,
and had received no news of any un
pleasantness.
MUTINOUS GUARDSMEN..
Trouble Among the <Jueeii'» Troops
at Windsor.
London, Sept. 26.—The authorities at
Windsor declare that the reports of a
mutiny among the life guards are
greatly exaggerated. A parade waa
held today as usual. The only
scene waß when Captain Raw
son, commander of the A squad
ron, who is very unpopular,
entered the barracks equare in a cab.
Then tbe whole regiment lined the bal
conies looking on the square and re
ceived him with loud hooting and hiss
ing. Profuse abuse was heaped on him.
The Daily News says: Tfee members
of the First Life Guards regiment, sta
tioned at Windsor, have been disaffected
for some time past, owing to the many
drills and inspections they have been
compelled to undergo. Yesterday a
non-commissionsd officer of C squad
ron found all the 80 saddles be
longing to the pquadron so badly cut
that they were completely ruined. The
; men were ordered into their barracks
and there confined. Here they became
uproarious, distmbing the whole
neighborhood. They eaDg Britons
Never Shall Be Slaves, popular music
hall songs,, and the national anthem.
The affair created much excitement im
Windsor, and crowds of villagers sur
rounded the barracks, listening to the
noise. Between 9. and 10 o'clock at
night tbe whole equadron went into the
barracks yard, singing snd yelling at
the top of their voices. The uproar waa
continued until '-'lights out" was sound
ed, when order wbb restored, tt has
since been ascertained that a great
number of men have been placed under
arrest. The equadron is confined in
tbe barracks today. It is reported that
Captain RawsoD~ who commands the
squadron, is very unpopular with his
men. He is said to be aioae responsible
for the extra drills to which tbe men ob
ject, and to prevent which. \hsy cat
their saddles.
