Mir Xafar: "This-- conduct was attributable to one ca use only, the barest and meaneet of all. tba destrs for personal gain, by any means, and at any cost. It waa the same loncir.g which has animated the robber of the northern dimes and the pirates of the southern sea a. which has stlxnul.td in dividuals to robbery and murder. In point ef morality this clique was lis whit better than ths perpetrators of uch deeds." From this scathes; criticism he excepts only two persons of Influence, one of w hom was Warren Hastings. These Englishmen who had bea-un their career In India by bear-' gins; the privilege of a simple trading frtte. practically demanded the free Importation ef their own goods, with th exoepj'in of ens article only, salV on which they conde scended to pay ? per cert, while the r.a tives were taxed S per cent on nearly every -thins;.

PREMONITIONS CF DISASTER A a X airraaatakle Presest laaest let lafrewaestly Wirn rewpla f Daaiser. A majority of women hare premonitions. One clever matron, speakins of the Chicago holocaust, said: I have been ia three theaters th.it have burned down, and ca each occasion had a forewarning of what was to hapten. There was something in the air. A cold bre.tb, as if a draught had suddenly been created, indicated to me that there was approaching Ganger. I quietly withdrew jong before there was any suggestion of flames. My mother was often Influenced in ths Sams way. Some people call it 'a rabbit running over one's grave.' It is an uncanny feeling. When ever muher felt it she would tell us that someone was about to die some friend or soqualnunce, I never knew her to be 1 wrong." Most of TJS have experienced that mys terious wind. God was la It, perhaps, when the "still, small voice'' spoke to Elijah on Mount Horeb. It koes blow, however. The. lightest feather is not disturbed by It. Trt we feel it. A chill sensation creeps over us. much like that which one feels on entering a cold storage vault, except that it seems to affect ths mind, heart, soul and all ths senses as well aa ths outer cuticle. If there are spirits in th air it may be their aura which affects us. At sight of ghosts we feel ths same identical sensation Let her they be nightmares or some fantastic vision of a disordered brain. There is unquestionably a phychle influence: something not exaciiy det.nable, but mes meric, clairvoyant, hypnotic and omnaa- buliifuc. At the time of the Brooklyn btrror the Kit Claxton-Two Orpha r, hecatomb, the first man tu leave the theatre re mained outside. "What's tba matter?" said an acquaintance; don't like the piece 7 "Very much." was the reply, "but I some how or other can t feel comfortable, I feel like a haunted house. If I were super -sutious I'd belitve fcoroeibicg bad is going to happen around here aa explosion, a rail road ciMrler. a rnlpwreck or that sort of thing" H must hare telt ths speaking winj that never blows, but always fore marna. I have Iwii ia panics snd felt the same sensation, of cvid and myuery before ths outburst of unreason. Once in a railroad train I felt it. The "rairbtt ran over my grave and my hair almost stood an end fallowing tli . imaginary teast's aura. "5:methirg is about to happm." I whis P'rd. anticipating a collision.
