Seventy-one years ago today mod
ern Spiritualism had its birth in the
little village of Hydesville, Wayne
county, N. Y., where the Fox sisters
gave their first demonstration of so
called "spirit power." The old Fox
homestead, where Kate and Mar
garetta Fox first entered into their
alleged communication with the
spirits, was long a mecca for the
faithful. Following the announce
ment of the claims of the Fox sisters,
Spiritualism spread all over the
world, and in the United States es
pecially the cult gained a strong hold.
Several towns scattered over the coun
try were populated entirely by Spirit

The first "world's fair" of really
international score was that opened
in Paris 62 years ago today, April 1,
1867. Five years previously a so-called
"international exhibition" was
held in London, but owing to the
death of the Prince Consort and the
Civil War in the United States the
promoters were prevented from car
rying out their plans in full. The
Paris exhibition was held in the
Champs de Mars, in a masrniflcent ed
ifice covering 53 acres. The interior
was arranged in concentric circles
crossed by radiating passages, and by
this novel arrangement all articles of
one class were kept together, and the
exhibitions of each nation were also
concentrated. The exhibition con
tinued until Oct. 31.
