It would seem natural that thcosophy
should come to us in the wake of spir
itualism and . that both should sock in
the occultism of the far east the stim
nlus of mystery necessary to tho propa
gation of the one and the rehabilitation
of the other. But here we must be care
ful not to wrong the new gospel, for
theosophists, wo believe, aro now anx
ions to disavow connection with spirit
ualism, though "to explore tbo hidden
mysteries of natnro and tho latent pow
ers of man" is ono of the prominent
aims of the brotherhood. Tho sibyl of

ports of these alleged miraculous occur
rences to her devotees in En eland.
It is disingenuous, therefore, in the
adherents of thcosophy to disclaim kin
ship with spiritualism. Is it not claim

80 years of her life in the study of the
occult sciences, and that in propagating

An UngliKh Wife,
Nono but housekeepers know how very
littlo of their money is really spent on
themselves. Most certainly every wifo
should have her prlvato purse, for, as
wretched woman said only tho other day
"I would rather go without dinner for a
week, or a dress for a year, than go to my
husband on Saturday morning with the
books. Ho is always wanting extra dell
cacics at table and then crumbling bo
cause the butcher's bill isl IDs. 6d. this

on bavinst sweetbreads on Tuesday an
fillet on Friday and that that has made
the differenc.0, but ho cannot or will not
seo it and grumbles and haggles until he
makes me quite ill, and then ho pays tho
books, leaving me with a few shillings for
'current expenses till tho next Saturday
Ho ordorcd somo wood the other day for
which ft shlllluca had to be paid at tho
door. Ho forpot to leave mo tho money.
and when cook brought tho bill I had
own I had not Rot 5 (shillings and to bur
row that pum from her. Oh, tho humlll
ation cf It!" And her eyes filled with
tears as cho spoke. That man's income is 1
probably A SOO or 1100 a year, and his wifo
has to lrrow 5 shillings from her own
servant to pay for firewood 1
Such a husband ought to bo ashamod of
himself. J lo degrades himself; ho lowers
and harassos his wife. Let him po seri
ously into the subject of his income, de
cide how 11 a to bo portioned oiT, hand
tho wifo over her monthly allowance, and
never discuss a bill or a butcher with her
again. It Is to her interest to do her host,
and sho is certain to do it, and lifo will be

Didn't Correct the Error.
An old writer tells tho Lewlston Jour
nal that "toerr in human," and ho struck
a weak spot In man's mako up when he
wrote that truth.
A few months ago in ono of Malno'a
county seats a lawyer and n clergyman
wero chatting together. In tho courso of
conversation tbo subject of mistakes and
miscalculations camo up.
"Do you ever mako mistakes?" asked
the minister of the lawyer.
"Why, yes, sometimes," was the answer.
"I suppose you rectify them, don't you?"
inquired the clergyman.
"No, not always. If it is a large mis
take, I correct it, but if it is ft small ono I
let It go. How about yourself, Brother
B. f I supposo you sometlmos mako mis
takes?" "Oh, yes, sometimes," answered the
minister, "but I treat them as you do.
For instance, In my sermon a few Sundays
ago I said, 'The devil Is the father of all
lawyers,' but It was such a flight mistake
that I let it go."
In addition to his other achievements In

He prepared it by heating dry sulphide of
BOdlum with chloroform, or, preferably,

which absorbed the sulphuretod hydrogen,
and the carbon monosulphldo passed

Lot InsiJoctor Chadband of Itosehlll re
lates a number of 'experiences which he
has had with somo of his cemetery visitors.
'One mystery which we have never been
able to explain," said Mr. Chadband, "oc
curs hero quite frequently. Often after a
funeral somo of tho chief mourners will
tako a handful of earth from the grave
and carry it away in thoir handkerchiefs.
After a couplo of weeks perhaps have
elapsed they will return and empty the
earth from the handkerchiefs back on tho
mound of tho grave. It is In all probabil
ity on account of somo superstitious no
tion, but I havo never been able to find
out just what it is. Then we often havo
queer experiences with people who come
hero and want to find graves of people
whom they havo known. Tho other day n
man came in hero and said, 'I wish you
could. tell mo where I can find a grave of a
friend of mlnowho h burled out here.'
Why, certainly, said I as I reached up
and pulled from a nhclf tho grave register,
which tells who is buried in every ono of
tho 00,000 graves In our cemetery. 'What
is tho man's name' I asked, preparing to
turn at once to it and find the exact !cal-
ity. 'Well, now, do you know, that is
just whero you'vo got mo,' tald the man.
'I'vo forgotten hi? name.'
Of course with such a lack of knowl
edge as that the request to find the grave
was almost idiotic, but by ubklng the man
a number of questions as to when his ac
quaintance died and whero ho camo from
I finally succeeded in finding tho grave for
him. On another occasion a woman want
ed to find tho grave of a woman sho had
known, but all sho could remember of tho
woman s namo was that her given namo
was Carrie. Hy going over tho list of all
the Carries who were interred hero I final
ly found tho ono 6ho wanted. Once a
woman camo out hero who had buried her
littlo baby two months before. ho was
in a distressed state of mind on account or
what sho BiipiKjaed to be tho suffering of
tho child, fciho said when it was buried
its feet had been tied together with a
Btrlng, and sho knew it was hurting tho
littlo one. Wo finally had to tako up tho
remains and cut tho string. Tho woman
tiin went away satisfied.
A rcmarkablo and extremely pathetic
incident occurs every Christmas at (Jraco
land cemetery. Early every Christmas
morning as regularly ns tho day comes
round each year a little woman with a sad,
wan faco comes to tho graveyard with a
tiny Christmas tree in her arms. Noticing
nothing and paying attention to no ono
sho makes her way to a farotl corner of tho
cemetery to tho mound over tho grave of
her littlo boy, who died several 'years ago.
Sho plants thotreo in tho hard ground and
puts the many colored tapers among tho
green branches, interspersed here and thero
with tho bright spangles and gilt orna
ments usually put on Christmas trees for
children. Then sho lights all of tho tapers,
and after watching them through her tears
for a few moments sho turns sadly away
and departs. Tho lights are left burning
on tho littlo tree, which is not disturbed
until tho next day, when it is carried away
by tho workmen.
Several months ago a curious supersti
tion which had never bwn heard of before
was noticed at Graceland. An old woman
who appeared to bo wandering aimlessly
about tho grounds asked ono of the em
ployees who camo upon her whero she
could find an oien grave. Tho man asked
her for her reasoq. Sho opened her hand
and disclosed a scrap of paper on which
was written "typhoid fever." "You see,
idr," said tho woman, "if I tako that and
drop it into an open grave and it is burled
tho dlscaso will leave the body of my littlo
grandchild, who now has tho fever." Tho
man pointed out an open gravo to the
woman, and iho walked slowly toward it.
For u few moments sho bent over tho edgo
and looked down, apparently muttering
something to herself. Then she stretched
out her wrinkled hand and dropped tho
bit of paper into tho grave. The poor old
creature then returned and thanked Iho
man who had be en watching her and went
away completely satisfied, confident that
her iittlo grandchild would surely recover.
Although the custom of placing trinkets
and toys of children and articles used by
older peoplo upon tbo graves is probably
not so much in vogue as formerly, thero
are still somo queer things of this nature
practiced. Somo weeks ago a widow
placed upon tho gravo of her husband at
Mount Greenwood cemetery his shaving
mug and brush becauso, sho said, they
wero tho last things ho had used. At tho
name cemetery thero is a grave on which,
under a glass case, thero aro a large num
ber of love letters written by the departed.
Occasionally members of tho family of the
deceased still continue tho custom of-removing
tho silver namo plato from the
casket and taking it to their homes. The
gamo peoplo also generally tako some of
tho flowers which adorn the casket and
havo them preserved in wax, afterward in
easing them in a glass covered box, which
is hung in tho parlor. ' In almost nine
eases out of ten tho. people who have re
moved tho name plato return with it inside
of a few months and want it replaced.
The authorities ' had a rathe unusual ex
perience at this comctcry with a woman
whose lot was continually robbed of flow
in which she had placed on the graves.
The woman In casting about for some
method to stop tho pernicious practice hit
npon the plan of placing, poison on the
flowers. Before any one was poisoned by
the chemicals which 6he hod placed on the
blossoms Bhe was compelled to desist from
the practice, becauso it !s often necessary for
the employees to handle the flowers placed
on the graves.
One dar a . man came to Mount Green
wood cemetery with a tiny little casket
under his arm about soven inches long.
He looked up the officials and purchased a
lot. Immediately he had the llttlo coffin
interred. Within the box were three fin
gers, which the roan had been so unfortu
nate as to losB in a sawmill over at West
Pullman. At tho same cemetery was

He had accomplished this and was on
the other side, when ho perceived that
the ship was swinging to the newly
flowing tido. He had found just space
between the bottom and the keel to pass
under, and now saw that the vessel, in
swinging, would pass close to a shoal
ridgo of the sandy bottom, and even
grind into it. This must inevitably cut
off the slender and delicate tubo which
conveyed air to him and also sever the
lines by which, in caso of accident, ho
