LONDON, Dec. 2?.?Not sine* the days of Home, the medium who con vinced Sir Oliver Lodge of the reality of psychic phenomena, has there been an actual case of an English medium whose controlling- spirits are said to be able to interpose an invisible non conducting medium between burning substances and the naked hand, says the London Daily Express. The natural assumption Is that the trick?if trick it be?is due to same protective heat-repelling solu tion spread on the hands. The argu ment against this is that if any such subt7ance were known it would have an enormous market value as a heat retaining agent for coating steam pipes. Besides, any thick layer of substance would be detectable. Mrs, Annie Hunter, of Bournemouth, claims to possess this power of hand ling Are wthout suffering Injury when she Is under spirit control. She gave a small seance before a society I nterested in psychic matters, and a Daily Express representative was In- j vited to be present. K?tlr*ly Dlffneat The sitting was entirely different from the asual spiritualistic seance. There were no hymns, there was no darkness, and every possible precau tion against fraud and trickery was oncouraged. The people present vanted the truth. The Daily Express representative was taken to the cel lar to select his own log. and chose a piece of dry deal, part of a builder's scantling. It was about three Inches square and ten Inches long. He was then introduced to Mrs. \nnle Hunter, the medium, a Kindly, middle-aged woman, dressed In an ordinary reddish material. She has lark, sunken eyes, and does not strike a casual observer as being anything more than a normal Individual. Her hands are soft and yielding, yet she is able to carry naming logs in them. The room was a bare studio, with s plain llnolleum-covered floor and a iosen wooden chairs. A bright coke fire burned in the fireplace The log was put on and was soon biasing. It was not touched until red hot and I thoroughly charred on all sides. In <*<"r to destroy any suggestion of r>ft-?*red hands the medium washed 'Hem thoroughly with soap and water. The sitters, a group of ten people, then took their seats and Mrs. Hunter passed rapidly into the controlled state. Her control Is stated to be the spirit of a Parsee who died hun dreds of years ago, and when en tranced she speaks no English. Speaks ttruccr Tvagve, In a minute or two she began to speak and words that sounded like "oot-al-a-massa. Korusl, a-leek-a-la massa" occured frequently. She was violent, expostulatlve, shaken and ex cited. The words poured out In a quick, unbroken stream. She stood up and waved her hands and gesticu lated. Then she pounced on the glow in* log flaming among the coals and kept Juggling It from hand to hand. The log was aflame and showered bits of burning charcoal, sparks and ashes about the room. She did this twice, putting the log back into the fire to flame again. The Parsee language stopped and an English spirit control, a "healer." translated his words. "He is doing this In order that you may know ! that there is a connection between the pure spirit of Are and the Great Spirit," was the gist of his communi cation. Then came the Parsee again and Mrs. Hunter seized the log and 1 held it down on the head of the Daily Express representative. Bits of burn ing charcoal and ash fell off. and. de spite the psychic theory that the log is wrapped In a flame-proof psychic envelope, his hair singed nicely. Back Ob Fire, Again the log was put back in the Are. It was then carried by the medium and laid on the open palm of another woman. It wu not there long, but quite long enough to have burned It under normal conditions. She felt no pain. After an Interval a trial was made with another log. The medium held the new blaring log on the head of a colonel for approximately two sec onds. It did not affect him or his nalr. I^ater the Dally Express represen tative attempted to pick the log off the Ore. It was Impossible to hold It even a fractional part of a second Baroness speck VON STERNBERG, the former Lillian May Langham, of Louisville, Ky.f who returned to the United States recently to apply for the return of her American citizenship. ret Mrs. Hunter wa? able to carry It round the whole circle In her hands. The performance la perplexing. There was no cabinet, no darkness, none of the usual dubious appanages of spir itualism. It all took place within a twelve-foot circle in full light. ALL N. Y. HAS HANGOVER FROM "WET" CHRISTMAS The "Staff la Sold Openly In Drink, Bottle, or Case Lota by Dealers. NEW YORK, Dec. 26.?This has been "a wet" Christmas in New York, because liquor dealers smashed locks on the wine cellars and sold the stuff openly by the drink, bottle, or case to "get rid of it" before January 16. The word went out on Wednesday afternoon that "the stuff" was there for all who wanted to come and get it Although this was not a general con dition, there were enough placet op erating openly to supply a thick stratum of Gotham society with the stuff that makis for happy New Year and unhappy hangovers. One famous old restaurant sold many cases of wine and liquor, reap ing thousands of dollars In a few hours. Limousines and taxlcabs. drawing up at the door in a side street, were loaded wth cases by heavy hearted wine stewards, whose grief it the parting was somewhat assuaged by crisp, green Christmas presents.

STOCK FRAUD TRAP Governor's Commission Urges Law to Protect Rights of Investor. NTETW "FORK. T>c. 2fl.?The lamb will have the strong arm of the law protecting his dealings In sto-k. If the recommendation to Governor Smith by the commission named by him to Investigate legislation t* check stock frauds Is enacted lnt* law. The commission. In Its flnal report, made public here today, also reconv I mends that the Attorney General j should have ona or more special dep ] uties whose sole business it should be to familiarize themselves with commercial transactions and investi gate alleged irregularities. A majority report, submitted by John J. Pulleyn, New York banker, recdmmends that the governor Imme diately appoint a commission of law yers, on which the various district at torneys of the State are represented, to revise the New York penal laws. A minority report, submitted by A. Barton Hepburn, recommends passage of a statute which shall contain two of the familiar features of a blue sky law: First, a system of verified sta tistical detail, with both civil and criminal liability, and, second, licen sing of every security dealer. The Pulleyn report objects to both these proposals. Of the minority's ' publicity" bill. It says that while it might have "some beneficial effect," it would 'place "an unwaranted han dicap on legitimate financial transac tions to a degree that would be In tolerable." The minority's licensing bill, according to the majority, would be un-American in that "every citi zen should be free to enter into any legitimate business he sees fit."
