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:

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

hat a mora thorough knowledge of the weak

- something of the kind for tha British army,

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

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,

. Out of some 800 officers stationed in the
WO posts in this country are selected two of

f the first Salvation "lassies" to land on

liberal education. Grammar and she are
perfect strangers, and though she plays fast

,-. 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.

. 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

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

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
. :" t'esV " ", no. '-' :

' Good-eve.
Hen a tiny table it made with four legs.
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.
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

Many an old theatre goer win hear with a
melancholy feeling of the death of this wall
known actor. A man of splendid physique,
