O my soul, and for give not all his benefits: who re deemeth thy life from destruction: who crowneth thee with love kind ness and tender mercies.—Psalm: 1, 4. My Sci& by James As well New York, Aug. 30. —Seances are somewhat out or style these days, they tell me. I attended one the other night, in the parlor of an ancient tene ment In the West Fifties. The new era has clearly affected even the local Th medium was a rather slattern ly, lady to fifty-odd, whose charge is 25 cents per appaition per customer. She gave the impression of having Jdst tucked her mop and broom away after a day of cleaning. Yet the more homely psychic phenomena was what I sought; Park avenue shades never are intlie slightest way convincing. There were ten in the audience, in cluding your reporter. All of them with the possible exception of the me. dinum whose origins were uncertain, appeared to be out-of-towners. A boy of sixteen, who had bummed his way east from Salina. Kas., and procured a job as usher at the Paramount; a lady of post middle years, wearing rouge and nice whit ehair; a woman in the thirties, wearing mannish clothes; an old man, rather ragged, mustachioed and slow-spoken, from West Virginia;; a slightly hysterical typist just down from Maine; the stage doorman of a hit show just clos ed; my taxi driver; a Roumanian grandmother in a shawl, possessed of no English; a young woman, flaunting hair of a shade as clearly superimpos ed atf her Oxford accent, who spoke of her “family o nthe place in Vir ginia.” We sat down in rickety furniture in the narrow parlor. The gas fixture overhead had been altered to hold electric lights in the last ten years. On a table a lamp shade paint ed with faded roses. The medium. Mme. Yvette, collected the quarters with great casualness. presenting each contrbutor with a printed card bearing her name and the legend: “Physhic * * * WARMING UP Now folks,' Mme, Yvette began in a higfc-ptched quite matter of fact voice, “I don’t feel very moody ot- 1 night, but we’ll see what we can get ' across from the other world. I want' you all to be satsfied. 111 pass out these pads and pen ds and each of you, if you please, l •write one and only one question, fold the paper and return it to me.” She spoke with the memorized rattle of a pitchman, but suddenly she paused. “Wait a minute! I feel somebody a gainst me in this room. I feel a pre-' aence which isn t friendly. Now all friends here and we believe in th survival of life beyond the grvae. We look forward to reunion with our dear ones beyond who have passed over. You see? It doesn’t pay to be skeptical. Ah, we’re better now: All tfrineds. Is that right?” There was a mumble of assent, led by the Roumanian grandmother pos sessed of no English. The seance pro per began. According to ancient form, the lights were turned off. Mme.

THE WORLD WAR DAY-BY-DAY August 30th, 1914 —‘Britain’s gene rals had an army of regulars with practical and varied experience with out parallel among the Continental armies. But the leaders were show ing plainly that however skilled they were in handlind small columns In colonial expeditions, they had no ex perience in directing large forma tions in a great war. Long before the shot at Sarajevo that rang around the world, the gen eral staffs of France and Britain had worked out their plans for collabora tion—on paper; they had been given access to each other’s maneuvers; they had exchanged secrets. Their efforts weren’t matching up now. British generals were not used to tak ing orders from foreign staffs, they were finding it hard to accustom themselves to the Gallic tempo and temperament. French leaders, fight ing desperately upon their own soil, were short tempered in intolerant. And politics intervened, too. The politicians had demanded the premature invasion of Alsace which cost the French so heavily. Then they insisted that Joffre abandon the orderly retreat that had enabled him to get his punk-drunk army revived and reorganized for a defense of Paris in their best fighting trim. Joffre changed his plan and sent. Lanzerac’s army and the British northward to Charleroi and Mons just before the defeat of his Lorraine army ended all chance of lessening the force of the German blow coming from Belgium. This change in plan led to the subsequent disasters, for it threw two small armies, stil imper fectly concentrated and amounting to seven corps, against 13 German corps. When two British corps took posi tions behind a canal with Mons as their center, they were attacked be fore they had time to entrench by I masses of Germans whose approach took them by surprise. They were equally surprised when they found that Lanzerac had retreated, leaving their left flank wide open, without informing them. Thero already had been bad blood between the British and French commanders, and i J . ohn French felt Ills ally had left him in the lurch, and he made plans to leave them to retire independently to Havre. The Canadians and Australians who will bear so much of the brunt of the fighting, have not arrived. The Brit , }sh have only 80,000 effectives. For hese| it. is a period of terrible suffer ng. They are, footsore and weary from endless marching, for they have retreated faster and further than l the French. The French armies are n shape again for a struggle, the British are not. . Fortunately, the Germans have be gun to show weariness, too. Furth er more .they have advanced so. rap idly that their supplies have failed to keep pace, so that the fatigue of the grayclad troops has been increas ed by hunger. When the chance of vaguely as she counted and stacked the slips of paper in the smei-dark ness. There was a little light from a street lamp streaming through the ‘ window. HENDERSON, (N. C.)

There is weariness at the top, too The war now is being fought on s big a front, by so many armies, that the contest is between the capacities of the two supreme commands. The burden upon Von Moltke is the heav ier. He has the strain of -watching and directing campaigns on two fronts. He is a man of indifferent health and advanced years, by nature kindly rather than insistent, and , has a dozen jealous commanders deal with—the Prussian crown prince the Bavarian crown prince, JVon Kluck, Ludendorff. The hour of opportunity for the Allies is near.
