MIJVVS SEffT THUOVGH ST ACE II. Addington Bruce describes the attempt of an English clergyman named Clarence Godfrey to "project himself" into the presence of a friend at a distance. The attempt was made on the night of Nov. li, 1S8G. The result of his attempt, as de scribed in the account written out at his request by the "percipient," who It should perhaps bo added, had had no intimation of the experiment, was as follows: "Yesterday viz., the morning of Nov. 10, 1SSG about half past 3 o'clock I woke up with a start and an idea that someone had come into the room. I heard a curious sound, but fancied It might bo tho birds In tho Ivy outside. Next I ex perienced a strange, restless longing to leave tho room and go downstairs. This feeling became so overpowering that at last I arose and lit a candle and wont down, thinking that If I could get some soda water it might have a quieting effect. "On returning to my room I saw Mr. Godfrey standing under tho largo window on the staircase. He was dressed In his usual stylo and with an expression on his fact that I have noticed when he has been looking very earnestly at anything.

I secured one interesting relic of Gordon in tho shape of an Austrian bentwood chair which he had given to the chief Gimorro.

To the reply that the apparitions were by no means uniformly coincident with the moment of death and not Infre quently occurred only after a lapse of several hours it was deemed suf ficient to point to such cases as that of Rev.

Westfield, 111., Dec. 18th (Special) All who are suffering with Brlght's Disease, should read carefully the fol lowing letter from the Rev. G. L. Good of this place. He says: "I feel it is my duty to tell you of tho wonderful benefit I have received frun the use of Dodd's Kidney Pills. I am a Minister of the Gospel, and In my work, I am frequently exposed to all weathers. Six years ago, I was laid up sick. I doctored with a number of physicians, and finally consulted a specialist, but without success. They all told me I had Brlght's Disease. I was in a bad way and almost helpless when, thank God, I heard of Dodd's Kidnev Pills. They saved my life. I took sixteen boxes and now I am cured. The first day I took them I fe?t relief. When 1 began I weighed only one hundred and live pounds, now I weigh one hundred and sixty-five and I am the picture of health. I recom mend Dodd's Kidney Pills to all my friends who have Kidney Trouble and I pray to God that other sufferers will read these words and bo helned by them." A Biped Canine.
