thnt Schulz had murdered his wife,

Prncties of a Sect Is Spreading All
Over Ilnstcrn .Maine.
Orlniul, Me., Letter In tho Sun.
"Anything which Christ did I can
do," is the keystone of the faith of tho
Holy Ghcst Evangelists, a sect organ
ized in this town about two years ago,
which Is now spreading all over east
ern Maine. The lenders of the faith
are Mrs. Mary Mclntyre, who oamo
here from Waldo county two years ago
and organized a prosperous church, and
Elder James Wooclworth of Syracuse,
N. V., who has been In Bangor nnd Its
vicinity aliout a year. Though the
members of the sect lay great stress
upon prayer and laying on of hands,
they are not Christian Scientists, and
claim no nltlnlty with the faith hoalers.
The new cult begins where the other
two leave oil', accepting nobody but
hopeless slnnors and confirmed Inval
ids, who are treated for sin and di
sease free of charge.
regeneration Is effected In several
ways, the course of treatment includ
ing prayer, bathing, rubbing, and bap
tism by immersion. When they havo
proved vain, the penitent is called he
foro a secret meeting of the members
and compelled to perform the "holy
roll." According to the stories told by
backsliders who have tnken the full
number of degrees, the person who
makes the holy roll lies down upon tho
floor at ono end of the building and
rolls over and over, like a dog, until
every person present Is satisfied that
the last race of the Evil One has been
shaken out. Sometimes tho ceremony
Is finished iu ten minutes, while In
stubborn cases of possession it has con
tinued from 8 o'clock In tho evening
until midnight. As tho subject rolls
past the kneeling audience, every per
son has the right to ask such questions
ns he pets fit, and the penitent must
make ready and satisfactory answers
beforo he Is allowed to rise. The sins
of a lifetime must be confessed in de
tail, and tho lnnennost secrets made
public. Having rolled across the door
until everybody is satisfied and has no
more questions to ask, tho subject Is
assisted to his feet and conducted to a
rostrum, where he is proclaimed tho
brother of Christ and told to go forth
and perform miracles.
The first suspicion of unusual con
duct by members of the sect came

Guaranteed not to slip
half the figure usually
about a year ago, when a young man
who had taken the holy roll was sick
nnd dizzy for a week after his exer
cise. Soon after this man recovered,
a girl who wished to Join the sect had
tho holy roll administered at an even
ing mooting, and the next morning she
was found on the piazza of her fath
er's house In a swoon, which lasted for
more than a day. When naked about
the girl's condition the brethren snld
she was in a trance and was paying a
brief visit to heaven, from which she
would shortly return and again take
posssesslon of her body. They llxed
the time of hor recovery at 6 o'clock the
next morning, nnd when the time came
she began to revive, gaining strength
and consciousness o she was nble to
sit up and talk before noon. Though
the Holy Ghost Evangelists pleaded
with her to tell them where sho had
been and what she had seen, she said
she had no memory of events from ths
time she started to wnlk home until
she regained consciousness In bed more
than twenty-four hours later. The
new evangelists took her lack of Illum
ination for a sign that sho had not
been wholly regenerated, and caused
her to m?ik a second application of
the holy roll, which was no doubt suc
cessful, because the girl Is now a full

Senator Ishain G. Harris Wat n Sur

In his brief eulogy In the senate of
the career and achievements of his late
associate, Senator Isham Harris, Sena
tor Bates, of Tennessee, used this lan
guage: "Senator Harris belonged to
that class of historic characters In this
country known as war governors. He
Is the last but one of that class upon
either side, North or South, who took
an active participation nnd presided
over a sovereign state during that In
Senator Bate did not specify the now
"smvlvlng war governor" to whom he
alluded, and there Is some doubt as to
whom he meant by this allusion, but
the fact Is, remarks the Sun, that Ish
am Harris Is certainly the most Illus
trious of the war governors on the
Confederate side, and by reason of his
vigor and zeal he was certainly In
clined to take rank with some of the
best known of the Northern war gov
ernors. There wore eleven such gov
ernors In the South: Isham G. Harris,
of Tennessee, for twenty years United
States senator: Zebulon T. Vance, of
North Carolina, a Democratic Idol In
that state, and for nearly, If not quite,
twenty years a United States senator;

had previously been secretary of the
