The most thrilliug incident in con

down at nights, more than once to bis

Unce he was bidden in a clump of
plnm trees, when the posse in search of

As its study becomes systematized ami

This statement is made by Bishop
Samuel Fallows of tbe Reformed Epb
copal church. He Is well known in
Chicago, where he resides.
Future advancement in the science
of "immortalism," wbich is BfHritunl
ism with the "fakes" left out, wiil
some day briug it to the point where
it will be studied by the masses just
as they now delve into Latin, arlthuu
tic, geography or grammar, according
to Bishop Fallows, who spoke at St
Paul's Reformed Episcopal church on
"Why Am 1 an Immortalist and Not a
The bishop made startling statement s
to the writer. He frankly states that
he formerly fought shy of spiritualism
and that he is just beginning to learn
In the enlightened days to come, saj -j
Dr. Fallows, we shall be able to con
verse with spirits of departed friend
and relatives. Their state will be made
known to us through these communi
cations. They will be able to advise
us on knotty problems, he adds.
Hasn't Yet Seen a Spirit.
Bishop Fallows quotes a speech of
Dr. Adam Clarke, lu which that celt
brated commentator said:
"I believe that spirits may, accord
lng to the order of CJod, In the laws of
their place of residence, have inter
course with this world and become vis
ible to mortals."
"Did you ever see
a spirit Bishop
Fallows was asked.
"No, I never have," was the answer,
"but I know persons who claimed to
have seen and talked with spirits, in
telligent members of my own congre
gation, whose words I have no reason
"I discouraged them in their belief. I
now feel that their experiences were
of great value and that I sustained an
incalculable loss by not going deeper
into the matter with them."
"You really believe, then, that spir
its may be visible to material persons
and that they may talk with and influ
ence a material mind?" he was asked.
"I do firmly believe that. There are
well authenticated cases on record
where important actions of noted men
had beeu influenced by some super
"In many cases they were UBSWS to
Identify the mysterious agencies. They
had merely an intangible feeling that
they should change their course. But
in other cases they were able to re
member the spirit who talked to them,
to repeat its exact words and to de
scribe its appearance. These instances
cannot be doubted, as they come from
men high in their professions.
"There are great truths in spiritual
ism. Many spiritualistic phenomena
we cannot understand, but we have to
admit them. I have called the new
science 'immortalism' because it de
pends for its existence upon the im
mortality of the soul, in which we all
believe, and tbe preservation of iden
tity beyond the grave. Immortalism Is
simply spiritualism with all the frauds
and trickery eliminated. On account
of these frauds spiritualism has been
shunned by many right thinking peo
ple, but immortalism will claim their
most earnest attention."
In support of his belief Bishop Fal
lows quoted from many eminent men
who have expressed similar views.
Where Man Has Been Tamed.
ftaw comes the woman of many hus
bands, a suggestion that man is con
quered. Miss Charlotte Mansfield,
who has returned to London from a
trip through central Africa in which
she covered 2.000 miles In 150 days,
found two tribes in TImtall chieftalned
by women. The men are the slave
sex. If Miss Mansfield be not a humor
ist. Every woman chief has from
three to ten husbands. The men do
all the work, and the women enforce
the rude laws for government and
designate the officials.
