one dreamed of Garfield as candidate,
Dr. Kelzer announced that he would be
the candidate, lie was laughed at, but
he persisted that he had reoulvod a

that Garfield would be the next president.

He culled on the sonator In his commit

not a crank, nor Is ho' seeking notoriety.
He Is a believer in spiritualism, and be
lieves that the revelations coming to him
from the SDlrlt world are reliable. He
said he had never met Senator Cullom,
but would like to soe him, because of
what had been revealed to hlin concerning
the senator's future. Senator Cullom
laushod when told of the caller and his
revelation, but was surprised to meet a
very Intelligent and pleasant appearing
business man. who chatted over political
affairs for a few minutes, and then re
tired, leaving with the senate an invita
tion to dine with him after be became

against the country and against civlllx
