: Tanatle*?-Strange Scenes in tho
Church Among tbo "Slain of tho
Ijord."
Iodutol*, ky., May 27.?One of
| those strange religious crazes that at
R intervals pass over certain sections of
I tlie country is noiv raging in lit. Ebal,
a little Indiana settlement. Under the
I influence of hypnotism or fanaticism
people are forsaking their homes to
listen to the frenzied talk of three
women, passing as thoy hear tho wild
harangues from mere interest at first
into intense excitement, losing control
over nerves and muscles, dancing and i
shaking like Indian dervishes, and
finally fading into trances hard to tell
from death. The strange craze has existed
for weeks, and shows no sign of <
cessation.. It resembles the wild work i
of the notorious Mrs. Woodworth in 1
this city a few years ago, but is so much i
more severe that a parallel must be i
(ought far further back in the dancing j
epidemic of the early yoars of the cen- j
tury.
About ton weeks ago thi|c womon, i
who said they came from Bprinlluld, III., i
passed through Bloomington, Ind. The I
oldest was apparently about sixty years i
of age and gave her name as Mrs. Sarah i
Latighlin. Her companions were un- !
married; Anna Hufliin, about twenty- 1
five years of agef and Mattie Tornlinson, <
about eighteen. The three moved on <
to Mt Ebal, a country church, ten miles <
south of Bloomington, and about raid- I
feV way between Smithvillc and Harrods
burg. There they Bottled down and bejS
gan their meetings, which huvo con- .
5^!' tinned nightly ever einco. From tho
? start familiar hypnotic experiments
were made, both tho older women using
the young girl as the subjcct. i
MANY coxvwtrs. 1
j To the simple country people these 1
? mesmeric feats were very strange, and <
to them is due the first credence given 1
to the claims of the women tlmt they i
were empowered by Jehovah to make j
their miraculous manifestations, to heal ,
S the siek and to cast out dovils. As t
their subject fell into the hypnotic i
trance they cried'out that bIio whs "one j
jp: of.the slain of the Lord; slain by Ilim i
| to be saved: to awako from the death <
? . purified and re-regenerated." Converts :
came to tho women preachers speedily.
(' ' One by one the peoplo becamo infected
by their strange hallucinations, and
now night after night aisles, benches, ,
, pulpit and rostrum in tho little church ;
aro packed with "the slain." 1
A few days ago the scene of tho 1
- strange excitement was visited by {
a reporter, and no exaggeration j
" was found in tho reports of the craze. Many
of the converts, from the timo '
p. thoy came in sight of the chapel, beijan j
K to jerk and twitch their hundB, which

SINQDIAB FEATURE.
It was impossible to find among all
le converts at these meetings a single
ue who has joined a church. It ia not <
liked about. Neither tho managers
or any of thoir disciples ever indicate I
ay denominational preferences. Tho 1
reaching. consists of short, and at <
mes incoherent and disjointed exhor- t
itions, harping always on tho theme f
iat tho preachers aro possessed of mltculous
powers, bestowed in the night
me by visions.
Among the singular features of these ]
icetlngs is the fact that this woman .

when yonng men about him wore shouting

|Y He helped us," the poor to How would ;

his eves were closed in sleep, or trance,

I staff, said: ''Ben won't yield. Hecurted

fc trance meeting.
, "No careful scientist will profess to
eivo an ultimate explanation of nnyKj
thing," he replied. f'Hc only tries to
RffgrotlP facte. I saw nothing at Mt. Ebnl
f . churcK in the way of a "trance," which
Ej could not-he grouped with the reinHRtlvoly
simpler cases of hypnotism. One
Wi tloex not need to be a specialist in tills
Kjiflokl?I nm not one myself?to see these
Hjfetwo things: First, that the methods of
IS.' tho leaders are such as to induce hvpj
not ism; and, second, that tho catalup|
ties, rigidities, motions, visions, etc.,
pre all ail such as would bo Qppectcd by
BpF hvpnotiseur nnder the conditions
JSjnrfesunt. As an illustration, of their
fc'method: I saw ono of tho women npjirriaeh
a timid-looking boy of perhaps
i. sixteen and exhort him to come to
L' the Lord. At the time, the congregaI
tion was singing over and over, in slow
I but weird and Intense tones, one lino,
jV. 'It's the very same power, It s the very
I enmo power. It's the von- s'amo power
j that came at Pentecost.' Mennwhilu,
I the leader held before and somowhat
I sbovo the bay'* face an open hymn
book in such a way ftAC the light fell
upon it brightly. At this he stared tor
a few minutes and then fell away into
the first stage of hypnosis, in this and
other eases there wasevidently direct
hypnotizatlon. Charcot co'bld not have
done it better.
"Throughout the timo of meetlngthe
conditions were such as a hvnotueur
would consider favorable. Many persons
wish to pass into the "trance."
Even moro expect to do so, or at least
fear that they will pass into that state.
All have the attention powerfully directed
in that way. T^s,]onj{, motallic,
rythmical tones?in' preaching, 'prayer
and singing?characterized both by
monotony and intensity, are under these
conditions quite sufficient to induco the
hypnotic state. The attention 1s further
fixed by tho spasmodically quivering
right hand of the preacherior by the
open book held aloft in the light in her i
hand. Cases of auto-liypilosis also
occur. j
the effects.
"As to tho phenomena of tho 'trance,'
besides the changes of circulation,.respiration
and tho rigidity of tho "body, !
which aro common phenomena of the :
cataleptic state, it is significant that
all the actions performed aud all the
visions reported are such as the actions
or words of the leaders suggest. In the
voudou snake woman reported from
Hayti, the women wriggle and hiss like '
serpents. Here, they ehake the right
liand and walk about the church, and
describe Satan, etc., nil wntctt tney nave ;
seen and heard from the leaders. Those ;
leaders could perform far greater 'mlra- ilea'
if they know what some of our hyp- '
aotiseurs could tell them to try.
fi"As to tho effect of all this upon the j
people who undergo it, I will nay that
I think two boys, who might liavo had
lome degree of sjne life are probably
rendered idiotic in the way I have mentioned.
Many others will, doubtless,
mffer in a Vsss degree, particularly somo
imong tho women and young girls.
Some will doubtless receive positivo

}f tho people, nor that the life of tho
community may be elovatod. I believe
ino of the leaders shammed a trance.

A GRAVE ACCUSATION

New York,May 27.?Dr. Charles H.
Cook, of Newark, Pa., a visitor at the
New York Athletic Club, was hurriedly
summoned yestcrdav to tlie first floor o{
No. 128 West Fifty-second street, where
he found Mrs. George Darby, thirty-six,
in bed in a comatose state.
Dr. Chapln, of No. 27 West Fifty-first
street, was also called in, but the woman
died shortly afterward. nr. uoon sua
that he believed Sirs. Darby's death was
caused by morphlno, which the woman
had taken in patent medicine.
Later in the day William Ennes, the
woman's brother, made a serious charge
against his brother-in-law, Georao
Darby, to Deputy Coroner Donlln. lie
said that to the Best of his knowledge
her husband had beon administering
plow poison to her (or somo time. He
wanted an autopsy performed.
Darby, who is the owner of a livery
stable, denied the charges to Dr. Donlln
and courted a thorough investigation
He said that his wife had been alckjor
two years with stomach trouble, and
that she had taken soino morphlno. At
timoH nho was in tho habit of taking
patent medicine.
Deputy Coroner Donlln performed aa
lutopsv at the Morgue, but failed to find
my evidence of morphine poisoning.
Several of the organs were, however,
highly congested, as If by somo powerful
irritant, but only a chemical analysis
will determine Its nature. Coroner
Hanley has ordered that such an
malysis bo made. Dr. Van Wyck, of
So. 210 West Thirty-eighth street, who
lias been tho family physician of the
Darbys for two years, ^couts the brothsr*B
