How a I'erronnlng Spiritualistic Sledlum Was i:ntrappcd. From tbo San Francisco Chronicle. An amusing incident, by which 1 skeptic obtained considerably the best of a spiritual istic medium, to the great amusement of the audience, occurred at a public seance given by Mrs. Foye at Washington halt on Sunday evenlrg, The demonstrations of the evening were to be by rapplngs on the table, names appearing to the medium written In the air and writing on paper through Inspiration. Those of the audience who desired to hear from a dead friend or relative wererciuesled to write the name of such a one on a thp of paper, fold and place it in a hat passed among the audience for that purpose. The medium explained that, of course, all could not get an answer that evening, but modestly suggested that they try again or call privately upon her and replenish her coffers. The Idea occurred to a ikeptical young man, who was one of the audience, that tills medium would operate oa only such papers ao the could read them at she glanced them over. It further occurred to him that by writing the name ol some person now living and unknown to the medium, a fair test could be made of her alleged powers. He tberefore at once resolved to write his own name on a slip of paper and tee what came of it. He printed it out in full "FREMONT E. WOOD" so that it would more readily catch the eye. and folded it but once, so It would open in handling. The papers were 'then placed in a heap before the medium on a table and strict silence enioined. Calling upon the spirits to aid her, Mr t. Foye began by lifting the pspert one by one, in her fingers, saying: "Is the spirit of this one present? This one! This onet" etc. The audience, breathless with anticipation, awaited the result. Suddenly the medium paused, three raps being given on the table, uhlch was understood to mean "Yet." Fast ing her hand over her eyes, at If to clear the vision of her intellect, and then ttaring dra matically into vacancy, Mrt. Foye laid : "I aee there, written in the air, the dim out line of the name Fremont Wood. It anyone present who recognizet the name!" The flesh and blood of thit relenllest tpirit then arose and immediately all eyct were bent upon him. "Did you know thlt tpirit when living!" asked Mrs. Foye. "Yes; he was a personal friend," was the reply. "You know the age at which he died I" "Yes." "I'lease mention several acres and amont? them the right one." ims was done and the inlormition received by rapping! that he died between the age of 33 nna 24 yean. "It that correct?" asked Mrs. Foye. "No, madam," said the yountr skeptic, an expression of amusement and interest stealing over his countenance. "The tpirit hat made a tlight mistake. If I k.iow myself, Fremont Wood it not In the tnirit land, but here to night in flesh and blood; in other words, I am mat numbie person." The audience was petrified, and gave vent to a round ol hearty laughter. Mrs. Foye was considerably disconcerned, and failed in sev eral attempts during the rest of the evening. She Insisted that such a tpirit wat present, and that there wat another person, now dead, who had the tame name as that of Mr. Wood. The name Fremont it an uncommon one as a baptismal name, and Mr. Wood feels most confident mat no one but himselt, living or dead, his ever borne it in connection with the name of Wood. Justice Adam's Court. The case of Philip Manger vt. Annie Walker, tult for forcible detainer, was tried before' Justice Anton Aelim, by jury, and a verdict lor plaintili wat given.
