R IOEENT publications of Dr. James H. Hyslop, in which this well known investigator declares that he has held com munication with the spirit-of the late Dr. Richaril Hodgson, for many years his coworker in psychical research, have brought the subject of spiritual ism to the front again. Dr. Hyslop does not claim to be a spiritualist in the sense commonly ap piled to the term. He calls himself rather a spiritist. "A spiritist." he ex .lains; "is one who believes that under favorable circumstances we can re ceive communications from deceased persons," while he define- a spiritual let as one "who is populas.y known to accept all sorts of psychical phenomena and alleged communications whichcan- not be verified by science." Dr. Sys -lop himself, who used to be professor of logic and ethics in Columbia univer a.ty, is a scientific investigator and claims not to be easily imposed upon. A few years ago Dr. Hyslop an nounced his desire to establish in New York city, where he lives, an institute for the study of "spilrtism"-that is, for scientific investigation into the pos sibility of communication with the spirits of persons who have passed through the process which we call death. He is still working along this fine and hopes to arouse wide interest in this kind of investigation, which has fascinated some persons in every age of history. Whether the dead live again is still q~ questlion of the ages. It is this :nighty question which Dr. Hyslop ,~pes'to solve. In his own belief he 1 esole it afirmatively. He be 4 es that he has held communication ti dceased persons through living Scommonly known as medlnmus Wtbn tqvocabulary of the spiritist cued:";"lights." im..rs' tepnora A. Plpei of Boston is h.~ iot highly regarded "light" -in i Dr. Hyslop's adherents. For this woman has been going into ee pm time to time, during aiie wrltes with a pencil on a of paper sentences which Dr. slop and his followers believe to be DH. JAMER ?7_ TIVYT.lP_ messages from individuals "on the other side," who thus communicate with their friends or relatives on this side of the mysterious gulf. Mrs. Piper herself, it is of interest to know, does not believe that these messages come from the dead. She holds that they are due to telepathy -thought transference-though she advances this as a mere opinion. She claims no sci entific explanation. Dr. Hyslop asserts that recently Mrs. Piper wrote messages which un mistakably came from the late Dr. Hodgson. In these communications the spirit of the departed psychical re seacher is said to have discussed with Dr. Hyslop the publication of a com plete report of the Piper revelations in the past and the reorganisation of the Society For Psychical Research, both of which topics had been discussed by the two men prior to the death of Dr. Hodgson, which occurred about four teen months ago. 'These Piper revelations, it is said, fill several thousand pages. They com prise communications purporting to come from various persons who have died. Dr. Hyslop believes that they advance indisputable evidence of the continued existence of the individual, with individual consciousness and memory, after the process of physical dissolution through which all persons must pass. Dr. Edward A. Spitzka, demonstrator of anatomy in Columbia university and an alienist of some dis tinction, takes issue with Dr. Hyslop and states his ideas on the subject in this manner: "Stories of communication with the departed originate with either of two classes-frauds or the hypnotically in sane and dreamers. The poliee should deal with the former, while the latter, by commdi consent, belong to the care of the alienist" Rev. Dr. Minot J.

In New York may be found skilled mechanics who have been wandering over the globe for half a lifetime. There are few trades in which a skill ed man with the mastery of several tongues cannot earn a living in almost any considerable city of the world. Most of the mechanics who move thus freely about the world are conti nental Europeans. Woodcarvers, stone cutters, electrical workers of various kinds and garment cutters are among the mechanics that move about most freely. The great temptation to such a wan derer is the trip around the world. The thing is not really difficult. He can cross this continent profitably in a few months, with a stop at Chicago and perhaps another between Chicago and San Francisco. A stop of a few weeks or months at San Francisco will put him in funds for the voyage to Aus tralia. There are four or five Australian cities in which a skilled man is sure of profitable employment. After Austra 1a there are the great Anglo-Indian cities. The journey to Europe can be made with a stop at Cairo if one chooses to make a little detour, and then Paris awaits one only a few hours beyond the end of the Mediterranean. Here are cheap living and good wages. In a few months one is more than equip ped for the voyage to New York. One has only to keep sober and know how to save money in order to make such a Journey around the world with entire success. It does not mean un comfortable living. In fact, the jour neyman must be well dressed and must present a good appearance to get on. At the height of the season hardly any city has enough skilled garment cutters, for example, and the wander ers are -always welcome when they rdach a new town.-Washington Post. HURRY FUNERALS. Odd Orders That Are Sometimes Given to Undertakers. "Life and-death both; are .ttrenuosau Io New, York," isld. an undertaker "We get orders sometimes that shock us. !'Not, long ago we had a call from_ family who asked us to, make a hiiu up job for the reason that they had ar tanged to sail for Europe two days later .and they dldn't want to postpone the voyage. "'What would you think of a woman who asked to have her husband burled as qulc.ly .as posaeble .,on£ the ground that a fewdays befota-el s death they had agreed to a separation and that she would like to put away the de ceased before the newspapers heard of their marital trouble? That is exactly what happened. "Then 'there was this case: An elder ly aunt, who had been an invalid more than a year, passed away. We were asked to arrange for the funeral on the day of her, death, and when we de murred unless there was some impor tant reason we were Informed by a nephew that they were anxious to know what was in her will, as the mat rimonial chances of a niece depended upon what she was to get. "Some time ago a man came into our office and said that his mother-In-law had just died and that he would like to send her body south as soon as pos sible because his wife wanted to at tend some sort of function three days later. "In the good old days in some parts of the country it used to be the custom for friends of the family in which a death occurred to sit up with the corpse. In a case given to us a few months ago we were asked to send a couple of genteel appearing employees to the house to keep the vigil. We did it, but I confess to you it seemed to me rather heartless."-Exchange. Chaucer's Face In a Stone. In a geological branch of the British museum the visitor is shown a won derful specimen of natural imitation in a small "ribbon jasper." This stone, the material of which is not unlike that of other banded agates, has upon its surface a perfect miniature portrait of the poet Chaucer. Every detail is startlingly correct. There are the white face, the pouting lips, the broad, low forehead and even the whites of the slightly upturned eyes. The at tendants say that it is utterly Impos sible to convince even some of the ed ucated visitors that it is not an arti ficial production. Waste Not-Want Not. Doctor-I must know what you have eaten today in order to understand your stomachic disorder. Patient--Oh, adoctor, only a little pork. It was left over from last week and was perhaps not quite fresh. Doctor-Would it not have been more sensible to let the pork spoil en tirely rather than to upset your stom ach? Patient-But, doctor, you can cure a diseased stomach, but what can you do with spoiled pork?-Fliegende Blatter. Got the Habit Later.
