There art few bsws oapec readers who hv not beard of th , dVmpaign against old "Nick," whic h is beiat; , carried on by the Balratioa Army on tbe At T Antic seaboard.. . , . Toot oumwpuodent aiot recently Geo. Thomas . Moore, tha commander of tha American Salvation Army, who talkad freely ct tha plant and method of their force, from wUch tha following iu ratberad: 0m mSm eta. tbomas m. noon. No ona would suppose to look into tha pleasant face and mild eyea of Geo. Moora that ha would be able to cope with tnch a crafty and treacheroui enemy at hit it aald ' to b. Nevertheless, I question if tha enemy hat a mora thorough knowledge of the weak . nesaea of the human family than thit Qen. s Moore. Hawatfor time an outfitter, or - something of the kind for tha British army, I and there he taw bow men would tcramble for the privilege of enlisting aa toon at tha prospect of a war became known, and often ' the more hazardous the undertaking appeared the more eager wee men to risk their Uvea. Here were men forsaking busineat and home, , often encouraged by their wives, to fight .' . England'! Brmsekts battles in the torrid heat of Africa or among the fevers of Aula. Moore saw this fondness of man for noise en1 show and excitement and conquest could be : tnrned to account in Christian warfare. I ' It It taM that It was Mrs. uootn, tne wui V TV -On. Booth, of the Salvation Army ia t V England, who first suggested the idea. 87 tm" Born iaiur.ee, ana nav iwuoessea now the simple agency of a drum, fife and torch - light prooeasion, during ona of our poUttcal . eairpaignt, will become to enthused as to accept any political doctrine their leaders give ' them. Here was the suggestion for a novel Christian campaign. Gen. Booth being a : thorough soldier, atwoU aa a clever business - ; man, modeled the schema after the plan- of an army, adopting the tame terms through- - - act ts being ones with which the masses were - already familiar. Gen. Moore, the outfitter, designed the costumes, and- thus was thit army organized. Mi .v.rj-;f. .' ''' ' Gen. Moor says the "hidea" originated with the apostles, was taken up by Ignatius Loyola in the sixteenth century, but revived in its fullness by William Booth in 1865 in London, 'V The army overrun England in fifteen years, when they undertook the conquest of this country In 1881 Um Invaders landed on our ooast and effected s footing In Baltimore. To- ' day they have constructed forts and barracks . in all the principal cities east of the Missis sippi, though their skirmish lines extend far beyond, one outpost having been effected in Idaho. . ; - Cart Emma Was. ;', Fttl, Inspecto M. . BROOK, K. LlOBT, "StonewaU Jackson." ? 'Kansas Jack." . Out of some 800 officers stationed in the WO posts in this country are selected two of tne typical ones. Capt Westbrook was one f the first Salvation "lassies" to land on or shores. She it not poesessed of aTery liberal education. Grammar and she are perfect strangers, and though she plays fast and loose with her fa's she is a worker who has not ceased shouting since the day she landed. Field Inspector and Treasurer Mil ton K. Light, strange to say, is a converted Mew York drummer. " W jV ,-. Until 1884 the Salvation Army in this coun ter was under the charge of Gen. Booth of England, Gen." Moore being simply a com missioner. - When it became necessary to ac quire land here, on which to construct forts, Gen. Moore found it would be impossible for Gen. Booth, being an alien, to hold the prop erty in his name as he does all the posses sions, amounting tot millions, in England. So be broke off all connection with the English forces and has had his army incorporated under the laws of the state of . Hew York, their, property .being held by five trustees. He also abandoned many of tha u dime museum features of the meetings. . "Ash Barrel Jimmy," "The Converted Seal," . and like curiosities are exhibited only by the American branch of the English army, which ii also meeting with wonderful success here. 1 When a convert enlists in the Salvation Army he does so on the condition that he obey his superior absolutely. He is not to expect any compensation for his services. He ; must ev,en supply his own uniform, and must keep himself in condition to fight, not only all summer but night after night as long as he llres, on the principle that the enemy never Bleeps,'., therefore he'cannot., After a long and severe trial the' recruit or cadet may be promoted to tho rank of Ken tenant, and lUerto captain, when be it entitled to draw pay at the rate of 15 per week from the profit of the fort's post at which he may be placed. The arm); funds are derived from collections, which are an important feature of tha war fare. - The income from this source is about fTSjOOO a year.'.r. : iV4'' V F'tr V When a raid- it contemplated on a new town, a captain, lieutenant and cadet are rfletod to advance on It They secure a " Another horror la reported from New England, a dozen people havinc been drowned in their beds like rots in a hole by the bursting of a nwrvoir, i . - barracks" m the town, afttr wakh they parade the streets with a banner and drusaa.

Tfce MjitarlMS AaBaaeaaeat Which la raeelaattBt; Okls reettltk Many of our readers will still remember planchette, the strange little heart-shaped board with a pencil at its point which used to walk over yards of paper and write no and of tenie and nonsense if the finger tips of two persons touched the upper surface of the board. . Planchetts had Ka day, and mostl died out But the same mysterious force which used to impel it it moving now another kind of little board, and setting whole eommuni Uet of eminently sober and respectable Ohio people on their heads. , You see how it it made. A bit of board, say 18x30 inches, is lettered, rather large, with the alphabet, A, B, C, D, etc The letters are put a small distance apart At the upper corners of the board are written the words : "yes" and "no," the "yes" on tha left, the "no" oa the right On tha left and right hand lower corners respectively are written "good evening and "good night Underneath tha letters of the alphabet are the figures in a row, the whole arranged like thit: . :" t'esV " ", no.

It is three or four inches high and very thin and light Two persons tit opposite each other and take the board upon their knees at in the picture. The little four-legged table ia placed upon the board. The two persons grasp tightly with the thumb and forefinger the comers of the table that are next to them. TBS TAXKXJfQ fJOABDb The two sit down and become quiet, asking rtioml" After a few minutes the little table begins to move over the board, It is an In tel lig nt, or at least, a semi-intelligent force that guides : the table, for it answers questions. Bomettmes It talks utter nonsense and again it will write real information. The table spells out sentences in this way. When a question is asked, the table moves towards the tetters, and the foot stops upon the first one of the sentence to be written out Then it passes to the next one and the next and so on, with more or less rapidity, a gentleman, who hat experimented with the thing, says: "Sometime the table will cover two letters with Its feet and then yon hang on and ask that the foot be moved from the wrong letter, which will be done," One man who tnougnt nit lamiiy was spending too much time over the talking ma chine burned it up. . Then he left noma on a Journey. When the talking board could not be found some one made anotner, ana tne amusement went on. as before. To tho qu tion what had become of the other board the answer was given, "Jack burned It up, which somewhat astonished Jack on his re turn. . The questions may be asked mentally, even by persons sitting in the room several feet away from the operators, and tha answers are given Just as readily. Ia some cases re markable and truthful revelations are said to have been given about living persons. But it it not well to girt too much heed to these revelations. Bernard Kaeaulev. Many an old theatre goer win hear with a melancholy feeling of the death of this wall known actor. A man of splendid physique, be otlght to hare been in his prime,, for be wasnotas old as Henry Irving or Edwin Booth.
