London, Dec 29.���[Special] ���In the
House of Commona to-day, Sir Edward
Grey, Parliamentary Secretary of the
Foreign Office, stated that the Britiah
squadron at Rio Janeiro had recently been
strengthened by the substitution of the
cruiser Barraeouta for the sloop of war
Basilisk and the sloop of war Racer for the
gunboat Magpie. Besides these, the cruiser
Sirius and the sloop of war Beagle were included in the squadron, which the Government thought it was needless to enlarge.
Donaid Home MacJfarlane; Libe.ru! M. I',
for Argyleshire, gave notice in the House of
Commons that hu would ask the Premier a
certain question. This question was designed by him io draw from Mr. Gladstone
a promise to use drastic measures, if needed,
to terminate the Unionist Parish Councils
BiU. Iu response tu a private request, however, Mr. MacFarlane agreed to postpone
the question until Monday.
.Tbe Central News says: Negotiations
are passing between the Government and
the Opposition on the basis of mutual concession, with a view to passing the Parish
Councils' bill on a given day, although
whatev er compromise is effected, the measure cannot be passed before the end of Jau-
u��ry. The discontent of the Radicals and
nnuy Liberals with the Governmeut's hesitation to take decisive steps against the obstructionists, has in nowise abated. Should
the Government fail to give a satisfactory
answer to Mr. MacFarlane's question ou
January 1st, extreme pressure will be exerted tu induce the Government to apply the
cloture.
Lord Rosebery, secretary of the state for
foreign affairs, has answered the let er of
the international ai nitration association
concerning the disputes as to the boundary
between ilriti..h Guiana and Venezuela. He
says: "The negotiations with the special
Venezuelan envoy to England proved unsuccessful, as Venezuela iusisted upou sub-
milting to the arbitrators unfounded claims
which would have beeu utterly unfair to' the
interests of British Guiana. Nevertheless
the English Government expressed its willingness to discuss practical proposals."
Mr. Gladstone has written an open letter
concerning the statement of several Conservative journals that he was responsible for
the continuance of the ��10,000 income
drawn by Duke Alfred of Saxe-Cobourg-
Gotha from the British Government. He
says that the assertions in question are utterly untrue. Not a member of the cabinet
objected to the arrangement as to the duke's
income when it was under discussion,
The attacks made by Henry Labouchere
iu Truth and in his Parliamentary speeches
up *u the conduct of lhe South African Char-
tere 1 Company, iu their campaign against
the Matabeles, have moved lhe company to
provide the House of Commons with a list
of their shareholders. This list will be
issued soou as parliamentary papers. Con-
traiy to general expectation, the list contains the following names of members of
Parliament: Sir Charles Dilke, Radical;
Thomas Gibson Bowles, Tory; Ashmead
Bartlett Burdett-Coutts, Conservative; Chas.
V. Gonybeare, Radioal; Sir Thomas Sutherland, Libeia'-Unionist, aud Alexander McArthur, a Government whip. Together
they have but ��8,000 worth ot shares.
Most of the Bhan holders have invested only
small sums. Among them are Mr. Schnad-
horst, tho greaL Liberal organizer, a host of
Jews and not a few foreigners. The Duke
of Aberoorn and Duke of Fife are among the
he.ivies', shareholders. Premier Cecil
Rhodes, of Cape Colony, has ,��30,000 worth
of shares. Formerly his holding was ��15,000
worth.
Gladstone is eighty four years old to-day.
He is in excellent health. Telegrams and
messages and oards of congratulations are

Nothing Known of Hollos' Movements
Furthor Developments of the Brazilian
Squabble.
PkknamiU'cu, Dec. 29.���Tho greatest
mystery aurrouuds the movements of the
rebel admiral, Mello. Nothing has been
seen r*f him since he sailed CortS ��� n lb"
20tb, pie-.utuubly to show fight to the new
government, cruisers Nlotherny and America,
Word is received of trouble between Brazil
and Portugal because, by order of Piesideut
Peixoto, the Portuguese minister was detained against hia will. It is stated that
the minister tried to leave despite the piesi-
deut's orders aud that force was employed
to detain him.
The Spanish warship Cristobal Colon,
from Rio, reports that on Christmas* eve a
heavy engagement look place between the
rebel warships and the forts. Both sides
are said to have suffered severely. Later
in the day great excitement was caused by
the news that Admiral Mello had arrived
at Bahia, and the men on board��the Nictheroy begin with alacrity to put things in
readiness to meet the enemy. The rebel
wai shins are reported coaling at Bahia pre
paratory to starting for Pernambuco to
capture and destroy the Niotheny, after
which, if successful, th*-y will give the
America a drubbijg. Mello is expected
here to-morrow. It is uot expected that he
will attack in broad daylight. It is now
said the Nictheroy will steam out to meet
him.
Rumor says Captain Nunez may torpedo
the harbor and take other precautions to
prevent being taken by surprise at night or
any other time. The electric searchlight is
kept constantly in thorough working order,
aud the people of Pernambuco are again
worked up to the highest pitch of excitement in anticipation of witnessing a battle
between the dynamite cruiser and the rebel
warships. A sharp lookout is kept uli
along the neighboring coast, and signalmen
are stationed upon every elevation of ground
from which a good view of the Coast wat is
may be obtained. The government torpedo
achool ship Parahyba, recently o. eied
north, destination unknown, arrived here
and almost as suddenly disappeared, fearing
to be engaged in the coming strugglo between the Nictheroy and the rebel ships.
Another version of the sudden departure of
the Parahyba is that she was ordered by
Peixoto to steam for parts unknown upon
an important mission. The Nictheroy's
crew have not been idle, aud are now thor
oughly trained in working the big u/uanii e
gun and in handling the rapid-firing guns,
which ore likely to play the most active
part in the midnight attack should Mello
decide upon attempting to cut out the Nictheroy.
Lisiion, Dec. 20. ��� A groat sensation haa
been caused in government circles by news
of the forcible detention in Rio Janeiro of
the Pot tuguese minister, Count Paco d'ArOi a.
He was recalled recently and was to have
arrived here on Monday. Passengers by
steamer from Rio confirm the report. The
minister's brother in Rio forwarded a message to the same effect, and the minister
himself has telegraphed relatives, telling
them to give information that he is unable
to embark, being forcibly detaiued. It is
said Portugal has asked the representative
of one of th't powers represented at, Rio to
act for it. in the matter.
LONDON, Dec. 29.���Advices from Rio
Janeiro report the insurgents in a critical
condition. Admiral Gama is disturbed by
tho non-arrival of reinforcements. Several
concerted uprisings have been checkmated.
MoNTEVttiKO, Dec. 20��� A despatch from
Rio says word has reached the city from
Rio Grande do Sul that the loy*l garrison
in Bage is being sadly demoralized by
hunger, due to ditliculty in getting provisions through the insurgents' lines. Peixoto
is said to bo considering the advisability of
ordering the Nictheroy and America to go
to Rio and make an attack upon Cobras island and upon the insurgent ships now at anchorage among the foreign vessels In the bay.
The feeling in Rio seems to be that anything
which would end tho preseut state of suspense would be a relief.
Rio DE JANEIRO, Dec. 20���The representative iu this ���'ity of the United Press haa
learned from uoimpeaohable authority that
Admiral da Gama, who was in command of
tho insurgent Beet in the bay of Rio Janeiro
timing lhe absence of Mello, when asked on
what constitutional grounds the insurrection had been startc replied: "We are not
figh ing on ems i'u'i na! grounds, wo are
fighting against military tyranny."

Nanaimo's Bully Boy Comes Out Ahead
The Contest Ended in Two Bouts.
San PbaHOBCO, Dec. 29.��� [.Special. ]���Sebastian Miller, the Bavarian Hercules, has
been giving exhibitions of his strength at
the Orpheus theatre, for some weeks. He
recoutly issued a challenge to meet any one
in a mixed wrestling match, which was accepted by Dan McLeod,of Nanaimo the well
known oatch-as-catch can wrestle.-. The
conditions wero one bout at Gn.eco-Roman
and one at catch-as-catch-cm, the man winning the quickest bout of the first two to
have choice of style in the final. Miller
has thrown the champion, Evan Lewis,
at Giaeco-Roman and it was the
general opinion that he would win at this
style. McLeod, however, fooled the giant
by winning after a hard strugtrlo in one
hour and Ihirty-"*��ven minutes. He had an
easy thing with Miller at catch-as catch-can,
winning the second bout and the
match in four minutes and seventeen
seconds. The stakes were 8500 a side.
There was nearly 100 piuntV difference in
the weight of the two men, so tint Me-
Leod's win is the more notable The crowd

An Attempt at Poisoning���Stead's Asser-
tions Repudiated.
Tobonto, Dec. 29.���It hos just been
learned that recently the family of W. Cook,
M. A., of the legal firm of Fullerton, Cook
and Wallace, had a narrow escape from
death by poisoning at the hands of a reveng-
ful servant. A few months ago a domestic
was engaged by Mrs. Cook. The girl
entered her duties with apparent docility
but before long she developed a most unpleasant disposition and finally Mrs. Cook
gave her notice of discharge. One morning
Mrs. Cook discovered that the victuals
which were to be eaten at breakfaBt had
been tampered with. investigation proved
that the girl had made a deliberate attempt
to do away with the family by placing Paris
green in the food.
The following speoial cable from London
appears in this morning's Empire: An
article appears in the Pcdl Mall Gazette re-
pudiating assertions made in the United
States by Mr. Stead to the effect that England would i hink no worse of Canada for
discriminating againBt the mother country
in trade, should the United States demand
such a course, as a condition of reciprocal
trade with Canada. Such a breach of imperial compict, the Gazelle says, would lead
to disintegration of the empire.
A special from Ottawa says: It has leaked out that at a recent meeting the Cabinet
discussed the advisability of dissolving
parliament instead of calling it together.
Sir John Thompson was in favor of an immediate appeal to the country for a mandate
to reform the tariff on lines of moderate
protection. The majority of his colleagues
were, however, opposed to the proposition
and tbe matter was dropped.
it is announced that the parliament will
not be called together in-uil February 15th,
because the ministers desire to see what
will become of the Wilaon bill at Washington.

President Van Home, speaking of the extraordinary decline in the passenger and
freight receipts on the Canadian Pacific for
the first t hree weeks of December, compared
with the corresponding period of last year,
says: "The decrease results from the farmers of the Northwest, very wisely, I think,
holding back their wheat for better prices,
and while they are holding it they are buying little which affects general trade. Of
course, the depression in the states has had
some effect, but how much it is difficult to
estimate."

of American duties on coal will not benefit
consumers in Canada if the syndicate is permitted to control both the Nova Scotia and

there been anything like it, in my judgment, and 1 doubt if ever again, for a huu- |

GOLD AT ESaUIMALT.
Three   Claims Located at   Entrance to
Harbor   Development to Commence.
Viitokia, Dec. 2!). ���[Special] -The Vanoouver Island Flocknvstei's Association
held its first nnnual banquet at human's
last night. About forty sheep rsisets attended, Australian mutton o&me in for a
long and lively discussion, it being decided
to ask the representatives of tho distriot in
Parliament to urge an increase of the tariff,
to render the marketing of importations of
this aiticle out of Ihe question. As the
farmers of Cowichan do uot begin to supply
a tenth part of the immediate local mai kct,
this aotion, whioh no doubt will he fulite,
seems ridiculous.
A oompany of Victoria business men, including G, Leieer, M. L-nz, Jib I'otts > nd
others has sti ked off threo gold claims at
the entrance io Eaquimalt harbor. The
claims are known as the Helen, Midivght
and Bonanza Kiu*^. Tho Helen is on . he
View Field Estate, the title of which it* an
Imperial Government g ant. There is a
question as to whether this claim can be recorded, as it is said an Imperial Government
grant for land includes mineral There will
be no difficulty about recording the other
claims. Three mining experts have reported on thu property and each exprersed
a different opinion. An r.ss.iy of ore from
the Midnight showed $71 in gold and considerable silver. On the Hi leu there is a
four font ledge, and although the Hon ***/.'.
King has not yet been prospected thorough- j
ly, experts sny it is the richest of the Irio.
The recorder will to-morrow settle the ques !
tion as to whether the Helen claim can be
recorded. If he gives his decision favorably, development work will oommenoe on '
Tuesday.      ;

examination of H. Bedgrave for the   shooting of John Barron on Saturday,   December j
23rd,   took   place   to day.    Bedgrave took
advantage of the new code and   was   sworn
in defence.    He stated the shooting win accidental.    A. G. Molson   Spragge,   for the
defenoe, made a Btrong plea for the discharge
of the prisoner,   hut   Magistrate   Cummins
found the evidenoe sufficient   to   warrant a
conviction.    Bail was asked for  and the ap-!
plication was reserved for decision latfr on. '

A Smart Dog.
Quite an exciting tun-a-wa'y took place
yesterday afternoon. Mr. Hevilockway's
team and wagon, after standing outside his
store on Babtion street, Btarled moving
When a byestauder went to stop them they
went off on the gullop, running down Bas
tion street and on to Front Btreet, striking, it
ia believed, theCo-operative Co's wagon which
was outside tho blacksmith shop. Whilst
running on to Wharf street Mr. J. Hubert's
big Russian terrier dog Jack caught hold of
the reins and by so doing prevented the
runaway team going down the embankment into Commercial inlet, and continued
holding onto the reins, reUrding their progress so much that the horses were easily
stopped just below Commercial street. The
hoi sts were fortunately uuinjured though
the wagon suffued considerably, amongst
other iuturies having one  wheel smashed to
pieces.

The Bounding Sphere.	
According to the Vancouver Ntws-Adver-
tiser, the Mainland and Island football
match which was to have been played to day
has been declared off, the Mainland having
failed to get up a team. Officers of the
Hornets team, wheu notified of this by a
Teleiiram representative last evening, disclaimed auy knowledge of  the matter.
On Jan. 6th the Nanaimo Hornets go over
to Vancouver to play their return match
with the Vancouver club.
There will probably be a practice game

take place at New Westminster on January
6th. Notification of the meeting has beeu
received by Mr. Adam Thompson, secretary
of the Hornets, and it is very possible that
a delegate will be sent from that club.
An Unfortunate Assyrian.
Mr. Beevor Potts leaves to-day for Victoria to take up an interesting case on behalf of Na.iiip Antonius.a native of Assyria.
Nassip came to Victoria by the Chinese
steamer two or three months ago with about
1,000 dozen silk handkerchiefs, which he intended to sell. Whilst in Victoria he was
persuaded by three men there to go north
with them to Port Simpson, where he could
probably dispose of 400 dozen of his goods,
but on arriving there found that he could
Bell but very few, bo he desired to return to
Victoria. On the steamer's arrival, he put
his trunk aboard, aud as ahe had to go an
other 30 miles or so before returning to Port
Simpson on her way south, he remained
ashore. When the Bteamer returned he
missed it aud his trunk was thrown ashore.
After missing the steamer he had nothing
but to wait for the next boat, and the three
men advised him to save hotel expenses and
come and stay with them at an Indian woman's house���which ho did���spending his
time peddling his stock. One day he returned rather late to the house and found
that one of the men had disappeared as also
bad his trunk containing the balance of his
stock, 350 dozen silk handkerchiefs valued
at |1,500, aud SliiO iu cash. Information
was then given to the police but owing to
the Assyrian being unable to speak English
the police found great difficulty in understanding his position. Eventually four men
were engaged to hunt up the absconder and
he was arrested shortly after in Me la-
kahtla. For some time the other two men
one of whom is a brother to the man that
absconded, remained in the quarters but
they have now disappeared.

CALLIN6 ARAMINTA BACK.
By
he not taice it as ne p.e.is-.* HI Arami.ita
could not put her veto on the pmCi'Hd-
inga now. With n newly born ���a": is of
independence thrilling Wm. he :n ..-cli-jd
back to his roo;j, carrying the *iecaiiter
along, ami Walking u;--n nis heels even
louder than was noce-nary.
Araminta was always lenient to her
own little weaknesses, first of which
���was tea-drinking in her room at all
odd hours, and kept handy a very complete apparatus tor brewing her frequent cups of cheer. In her silver kettle,
over the alcohol lamp, John boiled
gome water; in her cut-glass bowl he
found lumps of loaf sugar; and when
he had compounded the medicine he
sniffed its fragrant steam with hearty
satisfaction. Then he lighted another
cigar, took a sip of the toddy and smiled.
Again he fancied near him a faint atmospheric disturbance, suggestive of a
groan, audible only to the mind, rather
more distinct than before. But the
grateful warmth of the beverage spread
a glow of comfort through his frame;
he sipped again, smacking his lips; a
feeling of emancipation animated him
and he said:
"Let her groan. This suits me. But
if Flitters brings her back, as he has
promised, the way she will declare herself will be a lesson to the meek in spirit.
And how much more of that can I stand?
Mayl e it might prove a good deal easier
to start than to stop. Is it prudent to
turn Araminta loose on a congenial
theme when she is quiet? Is it kind to
her to disturb her? Doubtless she is, as
Flitters says, a stranger in the the Hummer-land, but she is old enough to take
care of herself, wherever she is, and will
find some way of getting into good society before long. Ten chances to one
she has run across Mrs. D.mforth already, and has advance points ou all the
Coming Easter styles in robes and halos.
What's the use of bringing her back to
be unhappy with the knowledge that I
am making myself comfortable?"
When at length Mr. Blodgett returned
to his bed, his nerves had been effectively soothed and he slept sweetly, but his
last waking thought was a doubt of the
advisability of calling Araminta back.
Among the letters laid by the widower's plate at breakfast, the next morning.
was one from an old and valued friend
in the West, who addressed him at
home instead of the store, because
kinder considerations than those impelled by a counting-house atmosphere
were wanted for the sad news he had
to convey. Joe Brunton, the writer of
the letter, had failed in business through
a succession of misfortunes, which he
detailed at length, and the very con-
ailerable sum he owed to Mr, Blodgett
would probably be an entire loss, at
least until some time in the indefinite
future, when his run of ill-luck should
have changed. John Blodgett's fortune
was so ample that the loss of the money
was nothing of sorious moment to him,
he knew that Joe was a thoroughly
honest man, and his only feeling in
the matter was one of sincere sympathy;
but���what would Araminta say? So
deeply had he been engrossed in the
letter that for the moment he forgot
recent events of moment in his own
affairs. During thirty years Araminta
had never erased viewing his letters
with suspicion, and claimed the right
to read all of them that came to the
house. Of course, she could not extend
her scrutiny to those he received at his
store��� among which she figured to herself infinite possibilities of evil���but the
hope had, seemingly, never loft her
that some day she would surprise a
misdirected missive, one diverted by
fate to her hands, to reveal the double
life she was convinced all men led. And
if she had seen the unhappy bankrupt's
letter she would have said something
like this:
"So! You've been a fool again, and
have to suffer for it, of course. If you'd
had common business sense you would
have known Joe Brunton waq a swindler, using your friendship to cheat you.
Soft as you are, it's a wonder you are
not in the poorhonse already. It is only
a question of time when you will be.
But I give you fair warning, when you
have to make an assignment your creditors shall lo.-.ch nothing of what I have
compelled you to put in my name. Ruin
yourself if you please, but you shall not
ruin me. What's that you say? *Joe
Brunton an unfortunate, but honest
man?' Oh, yes; bankrupts always claim
to be that. I've no patience with them.
���His family?' What have I got to do
with his family? Let him pay his
debts."
Mr. Blodgett knew just as well what
she would have said as if he were actually* hearing her: so why bring lier back
to say it? Bankruptcies doubtless would
not worry her "in the Summer-land,"
and if she wero not called back she
would be spared the exasperation of
knowing that ho had resolved to do what
lay in his power to set Joe Brunton on
his feet again.
When he started out to business, at
the very foot -of his front steps he en-
counfered Sirs. Poppetts. a charming
little widow who greeted him with unwonted cordiality, proportionate to hor
desire to sell him a em , le of hig'*-
priced ticket*; tor :i charity hall, of whi ;i
she was one of the lady managers. She
ha*l burst upon him so suddenly, while
his min,! wa-* still full of Joe Uruntou's
trouble, that 'iis first instinctive thought
was one of al ,rm, for their meeting was
in full view from the parlor windows,
aud Aratuint i���but, psuawl What was
he bothering himself about? Araminta
had definitely ceased interesting herself
in his bearing towards widows. By the
way, would it be prudent to oall her back
that she might resume her guardianship.
Would he buy a conple? Yes, of
course, half a dozen; not for his own use
since a very recent sad bereavement
would preclude the possibility of his appearing at a ball for sometime to come,
but so worthy an object should not suffer on that account. Then he had to
explain his bereavement to Mrs. Poppetts, who had not before heard of it���
or, at least, said she had not���and was
f quite sympathetic, and perhaps just a
little more gracious in her manner.
That afternoon the collector of the
"Christian Zoological Mission and Cats'
Home" called as Mr. Blodgett's store to
get the check for which Araminta, as
ono of her latest acts in life, had made
her husband responsible.    He got it,  of
course, but when he expressed the hope
that he might be permitted to substitute
the honored name of Mr. John Blodgett
instead of that of his sainted wife in the
list of patrons of that noble institution,
the old merchant said emphatically:
"No, sir. Inscribe upon your ledger,
under the entry of the check I hav ��� just
given you, 'vein worked out.' The money I cau spare for charity hereafter will
go to relieve human misery, uot to
breed cats."
He wonld never have dared to talk so
while Araminta was alive, even though
he had always bean of that way of
thinking, and 'i ��� knew it. Would it be
well to call Araminta back and revive
her excessive interest in cats?
His lawyer, whom he hud sent for on
some business, came in soon after the
"Cats' Home" collector departed, and
when the subject matter of his call had
been disposed of. Mr. Blodgett said:
"I have something else to consult you
about, Mr. Drummond; something on
which I want your advice. It is not a
legal matter, but it is your business to
supply advice, and I may say, without
meaning to flatter you, that yours is the
only advice I 'solicit. It is as a man
rathei than as a lawyer that I want you
to consider what I am about to lay before you,"
"I do not think my advice is worth
much outside my profession," replied
Mr. Drummond smilingly. "At all
events it has no market value beyond
that limit; but the best I have to offer
is certainly at the service of my old
friend, and so, go ahead and state your
case."
Thereupon Mr. Blodgett told all about
Mr. Flitters's idea of called Araminta
back from the Summer-land, his consent���already half-regretted ��� thereto,
and in conclusion said:
"And now I want you to tell me first,
whether you think it practicable to recall Araminta; second, if from your
point of view you would deem it right
to try to do so; third, if on general
principles you imagine it would be a
judicious thing."
"Replying categorically, I shonld say,
first, it is not practicable; second, the
attempt would be wrong and harmful
In proportion to its semblance of success;
third, since it is impracticable, its judiciousness is not a question for consideration. 1 do not doubt the sincerity of
many who profess belief in return of the
disembodied soul to earth-life, at the
summons of a 'medium.' They are
kind-hearted, emotional persons whose
affection is stronger than their reaeon.
Suffering under the cruel severance
death makes in earthly ties, their wishes
lead them to hope, and hope to belief,
that they may re-establish communication with their loved and lost. That
the purposeful direction of their desire
and will does enable a certain breaking-
down of the barrier between the seen
and the unseen worlds is undeniable.
They unquestionably succeed in putting
themselves in communication with conscious and intelligent entities upon another plane of existence. But those entities are not, as they believe, the spirits
of the dead, but elemental beings who
fill the astral world about ns. They are
incognizable to us under ordinary conditions, just as the electric fluid in tne
charged Loyden jar is imperceptible to
our senses until we establish the proper
conditions for receiving its shock. The
medium's sensitive nervous organization and passive will are the wire that
brings about connection between humanity and the elemental forces in the
Leyden jar of the astral plane. Of course
lam speaking now of genuine 'mediums,'
not of the charlatans and clever tricksters who masquerade as such, and are
vastly in llie majority, or of those who
are simply hypnotees unconsciously influenced by stronger wills and honestly
self-deluded as to their connection with
the unseen world.
"Tho character of the elementals is
colored by the human influences with
which they are brought in contact. The
astral element they inhabit is the treasury in which is 6tored the infallible
record of every thought, word, and
deed of humanity since mundane time
began, and the character impressed by
such influence can scarcely be expected
to be angelic. In point of fact, trie elements are���as a rule���cunning, treacherous, and malicious, truly 'evil spirits.'
From the ample knowledge at their
command they readily personate any
one called for from the imaginary 'Summer land.' and delight in such mas juer-
ading. They may confine themselves to
demonstrating knowledge of the habits,
antecedents, interests, friends, etc., of
the dead, all, in short, that to th * non-
analytic mind would be amide proof of
identity short of visible manifestation:
or. when* the medium's astral personality is susceptible of being drawn noon
for the purpose, may even materialize to
sight and touch. In no case, however,
is the 'angelic visitor from the Summer-
land'anything but a masquerading elemental, except in rare instances where
there has been sudden and violent privation of mundane existence, or, perhaps, purposeful antagonism���at a certain moment���of an abnormally strong
will against tlie change nf conditio*) we
call deal i, Those excep.ional cases
need not. however, be discussed now, its
they are apart from the present case."
"It doe* not seem to me. Drummond,
that I have'ever heard those views put
forth in Christian teachings."
"No; they are theo-opiiic."
"Oh! Ah! Theosophy, eh? I read
an editorial about that in the Daily
Record the other day declaring there
was nothing in it. Did you see the arti-
ole?"
"Yes. It was simply the hydrocephalic child of an incestuous connection between bigotry and ignorance. I have
seen many such. They are always written by men who do not know the first
principles of the philosophy they presume t*��condemn, and who deem it their
interest to pander to the hate Christianity cultivates in its devotees towards
all religion based npon reason rather
than faith."
"Well, what would yon advise me to
do? Flitters is to bring around to-night
his medium, a Mrs. Husslewell."
"I have heard of her. My impression
is that she is an honest woman, completely under the control of the elementals, and also very oasily hypnotized. She is said to be an epileptic, and
probably ia, as epileptics make the best
mediums.   I think I can help you."
Before the lawyer took his departure,
Mr. Blodgett's line of action had been
clearly laid out for him, and, his com-
bativoness having been awakened, he
was even eager to have  "a round with
