The Springfield- Register says: "The
most tempting feature of "the commis

The Illinois State Journal says: '.'It
is interesting to note the seriousness
with which Peoria is discussing the
commission plan of municipal govern
ment. Those in Peoria who criticise
the commission form are telling how
good Peoria is under the present sys

Roman Catholic Priest's Views on Com
munication with God.
Reasonableness of prayer, as prove:
through the "miracles" . of clairvo;
ance acd hynotism, formed the key
note of the eermon of the Rev. Father
William Walsh at high mass the other
day in the Church' of St. Taut the
Apostle in New York city. It is prob
able that never before were psychical
subjects discussed so openly at a Ro
man Catholic service. Father Walsh
not only asserted a belief In the power
of - spiritualistic mediums, but c::
cited examples of what he perspmally
had met In Investigating Ihe realms cf
the mysterious and much scoffed at
"spirit world." "
Father Walsh described the wonders
of hypnotism fully and said tb.it If a
human being had in him the power to
subject another so entirely to-, the
commands of his Intellect so much
the greater, should be the Deity's abil
ity" to, rule the souls and ; bodies of
mankind. ;;Why is not prayer. reason

one in t'.e light of an dbvious devel
opment of civilization. .
Reason, cf course, the sermon ob
served, never would accept any occur
rence nut 11 ft actually had been demon
strated "as practical. The demonstra
tion, too, must be a physical one af
fecting, distinctly at least one of the
five senses, But because the reason
ing ability in a man decries a seem
ingly mirapulous event Is no proof,
said Father Walsh, that the rest of h'.s
Intellectual system will cast it cut as
untrue. Often a person will subcon
sciously believe in something, such as
superstition, which he would deny ab
solutely if questioned upon it.
The Rev. Father Walsh is one of the
thirty priests, members of the congre
gation of St. Paul, whose duty it is to
travel about the United States as mis
sionaries of the Catholic faith.
The announced subject or the dis
course was "Prayer Is It Reasonable?"
By m:!uy examples of the consumma
tion of the apparently impossible the
preacher sought to convert the minds
of his congregation to his view of the
efficacy of prayer. In his opening
phrases he mentioned those unbeliev
ers who insist thnt communication
with God is Impossible.
"They sr.y that for a man to knee!
and fix his thoughts upon" his Maker
and thu3 establish spiritual communi
cation with him Is opposed by every
law cf the universe and that to have
such a feat made possible would mean
the -breaking of these laws," said the
priest. "But Marconi's invention broke
no natural laws, though it was at first
considered a modern miracle. Why
should there not be a . spiritual teleg
raphy to make possible intercourse
between God and his humblest sub
jeet? Must we see the wires that in
visibly connect the kingdom of heaven
with the world of mankind to believe
"Clairvoyance and clairaudience are
scoffed at as impossibilities. P.ut in

a certain clairvoyant, and I, after
henring much of her ability, resolved
to put her to a test. With a friend I
attended a seance given by this me
dium. My friend lived more than 2."0
miles away. As soon as he entered
the room the woman said she could
tell what was going on in his home.
"She went on to describe in minut
est detail all the persons and objects
in the room. 'I can see them just as
plainly as lr I were right among
them,' she said. 'Just now they have
broken a crucifix and are trying to
mend It. The base of the crucifix was
smashed in the fall. Tbey are trying
to glue it to the cross.'
"My friend wrote home and learned
that exactly two weeks before our
I visit to the r-lnlrvovnnr tlu rmHflv
was broken and mended in the man
ner described by her. Yet she was
unaware even from 'what part of the
country he came. All this only goes

i jecting one man to the will of.nnotlur.
IIe snld ouo rannot reconcile "the Idci

Therefore, he added, hypnotism is not

merely as a suspension, of such laws.

The hansom rolled slowly up the

Suddenly, the .young man sat erect.
He leaned far fovwurd, peering intent
ly at a figure 11 the crowded side
walk. He warded it 'steadfastly for i
a moment, while his Indolence fell
from him like a useless cloak, ar.d his
eyes cpencd wider and wider.
Impatiently he" flicked the cigarette
to the pavement and stood up to open
the trnp above his head.
"Hi'." he cr lied, U the cabby. "I
say, there, pr.ll up to the curb and set
me down, will you? And be quick
The hansom swerved sharply and
drew up at the curb. The young man
scrambled out, quite forgetful cf his
usual slow dl.mity in his h.iste. lie
thrust up a bill to the cabby, and with
out waiting for his change lie went
briskly up the avenue in purruit of the
figure he had jurt seen.
lie elbowed Ids way along, now side
stepping some group which blocked
his headlong progress, now all bnt
breaking Into a run iu his eagerness.
Ahead of hlui lie taught fleeting
;,iimp.ses of a large hat with a blue
feather that seemed to serve as a ueo-
cssary incentive to his hurrying step3.
When he had almost reached it the
blue feather turned a corner into a
quiet side street, and the young man
in hot pursuit followed after.
Here the sidewalks, being less crowd
ed, gave III 111 better opportunity for
speed. In a moment lie had overtaken
tho blue feather a::d touched its wear
er lightly on the arm.

him with a sudden eager light iu them.

"You have led me a frightful chase,
Patty." he panted, with mock severity.
;"ir ;h.' laughed. "How?"
"1 was la a hansom on the avenue,
and I saw you passing," lie explained.
"I pulled up and gate chase afoot."
"What are you doing here?" she de
mandetl. although her eyes told plainly
that she knew very weil tho answer to
her question. "And why are you here,
anyway? Surely you are not up here
with horses this time of year. I didn't
suppose there was any power on earth
thnt could drag a Northcroft from Vir
ginia at this season."
, "A little clipping from a morning pa
per early in the week 13 responsible for

that you and your mother had just

"Oh, really!" she mocked. "I suppose
I should feel vastly flattered to be uble

The wild turkey shooting must be
something wonderful now, to say noth

"Yes, they're riding.", said he. "But
somehow It's pretty tame sport when
you're not along, Patty." .
She looked at him suddenly, and a
fakit rod, crept Into her cheeks. "Oh,

Northcroft straightened himself.
When he was thoroughly aroused he
was a decidedly handsome man.1 '
nia brows were drawn together in
a little frown; there were lines about j
the corners of his mouth. He was
enjoying the unaccustomed luxury of
thinking deeply. ,
Presently lie turned to her. There
was a great light in his eyes.
"Patty." lie asked, "do you know why
I came up here?"
She rbocl: 1i-m- ! "!. . . .
"I came," said he, "Tsecause ever
since you left I have not had a mo

see you, to find you a changed and dif

life and make light of It that probably
you would have outgrown it and for

A light touch on his arm interrupted
him. She was looking at him with ra
