It is the Queerest Story dear but our Isabel you remember a was a married woman it seems and she died shortly after she left Here.

De lorme As she rides Post in her Phaeton with a hand that never has touched a woman s clinching fingers since that night and his face tells no tales of his lonely life at farmlands. Loving and affect each what they Call a controlling spirit one Tio Nate new found earthly relative who had is the spirit of an Indian Man and the other very unceremoniously attempted to Plant a that of an Indian woman. These spirits kiss upon its spiritual lips. I must admit during the seances Are said to be employed that 1 was for the time being very much in Quot building up Quot other spirits who Manifest frightened and began to consider in my the band mentioned in last week s people is getting themselves in the form of men and women mind some Safe and sure Way of egress from and come out of the medium s Cabinet to such haunted atmosphere As i Vas made an be seen by every Spectator. Such Quot built unwilling victim to breathe so i whispered up Quot spirits Are not Only seen upon such of to my Fiat Friend from Indianapolis who had casinos but they also Converse with differ accompanied me in my perilous spiritual ent ones in the audience and in so free and Hunt to find the earthly stamping ground of familiar a Way too As to Quot almost Quot convince heavenly visitors that i would by his per All who have heard them that they Are really Mission fold up my tent like the Arab and Quot Bone of our Bone and flesh of our flesh Quot in quietly seek my own personal safety in an Stead of being spirit forms Only. While they other Quarter of the City of Terre haute do Many things also which appear even As Quot of no Quot said he Quot you cannot leave the ridiculous and foolish As the performances of such a step on my part he thought would some Quot living people Quot in this world such As certainly place my life in greater jeopardy dim Light embraces etc., etc., i shall not at than it would be in by remaining until the this time undertake to describe All that i close of the show. Such pranks As afoot saw or heard during my three visits to those race for spiritual Freedom he said were of Terre haute mediums seances referred to common occurrence at All the Public seances for the reason some one might accuse me of in Pence s Hall and so through his very or being partially deranged or that the spirits gent entreaties to continue my stay and see have stolen my reason by some undue influx the end of the ghost like tragedy being played fences which they have in their per Ambula in our vey midst by such angelic representations on this Earth brought to Bear upon my Tives of the future life i concluded to steady intellectual faculties and thereby have my my nerves for so momentous an occasion veracity As a truthful chronicler of spirit and As Best i could Bear up under so Uii Phenomena called in question. Mrs. Stewart natural a spiritual pressure As i was being and miss Morgan hold both Public and Pri made for the time being to endure. What vate seances in Terre haute while either one became of that rebellious spirit which had of their Quot shows Quot i must say Are indeed very created such a disturbance in our spiritual entertaining if not in fact amusing to those Circle by repelling the vain attempts of the who May if eve a desire to take a Peep at the brute Force on the i Art of its earthly Kins inmates of that unseen and invisible world Man i will not pretend to answer. It did we poor mortals dread so much to enter yet not go Back into the Cabinet i am sure so i to those who Are desirous Only of having a was led to the conclusion that in its fright it Little fun while being entertained by spirits sneaked into heaven through a Back door As i would advise them to visit a pubic seance some reformed drunkards do now a Days in in Terre haute and not a private one a order to take a drink on the sly and thereby private seance As Given by mrs. Stew not bring any disgrace upon the Blue ribbon Art or miss Morgan has to me at Murphy movement now in such free blast least too Many ghostly surroundings in our City of concentric circles. The other to be enjoyed by any one to the heart s Ful spirit being in its manners not so wild As the Ness except by some forlorn and hopeless one just described was seen to soon enter old maid or fast declining relic of a former the Cabinet and quiet being once More re generation whose shattered form is on stored among the living As Well As the dead it to give employment to an industrious and several other spirits then made their appear enterprising Sexton of a Backwoods grave Ance to the vision of the assembled Multi Yard. Tude of inquiring truth seekers. Both male the Public seance which i attended in and female spirits came out from the Cabinet Terre haute was Given in Pence s Hall in upon the stage during the evening. Some of that City at night. Mrs. S. And miss m. Them were indeed very Good looking too both entered the Cabinet together and closed and seemed to be Well raised and were to the doors after them. The lights were then Lite also in their manners Aud conversation All extinguished except one while it was while none of them would be taken upon turned Down very Low in fact so Low that the first acquaintance except by the most fasted room was quite dark. Spirits like Soine peo ious earthly fault finders As in any Way pie who live in this world Quot love darkness whatever below the average materialized rather than Light not because their deeds ghosts As they appear to the modern Assoc Are evil i suppose for the spirits i saw upon ates with such spiritual visitors to this world that occasion seemed to be quite Good natured through the Agency of latter Day mediums and Friendly. Light i was informed by a i asked one of the male spirits Whise a leading spiritualist of Terre haute was Quaintance i had formed what his occupy always very destructive to spirit Nate Realiza Tion in the country he had emigrated to tons and therefore spirits could be seen was. He told me with All the frankness and More distinctly in the dark than in the Light Candor of a ghost that he was a Quot gentleman "why,"8aid,he,"light would destroy thebus Loafer Quot in those ethereal regions of spiritual Ness of every medium in the i told Bliss. So i advised him that he might a him i would agree with him upon that Point Pear to a better advantage among his earthly certain. Associates to immediately join the Blue rib soon after the two mediums had entered Bon brigade to which he quickly replied that the Cabinet and darkness had began to reign it was his honest opinion that that Organiza in the Hall the audience to tha number of Tion was Quot Over stocked Quot with his Quot Par about one Hundred ladies and gentlemen titular class Quot already and therefore it would were treated to some very Good music have no practical use whatever at this time brought Forth from a hand Organ by or. For the kind of material of which he was Pence who i must say is quite an expert in composed. Most of its members he said jiving the very Best of tunes from such an had in former Days been dealing rather too instrument. To the satisfaction of All present freely in Quot spirits Quot of a stronger nature than we did not have to wait very Long for the he was to Ever agree to mix in with him show to commence. Oskaloosa and Minnie upon so Quot weak Quot a Quot spiritual Quot platform As he the two Indian spirits soon clawed sufficient had become used to in his meanderings material from the mediums to build up and through the Quot unseen world Quot and therefore it it together two full grown and healthy he begged to be excused from any such Quot in looking ghosts who were Strong enough tangling alliances Quot in that the two physically to open the doors of the Cabinet Quot controlling Quot Indian spirits having at last be and walk out before the audience leaving come tired As i supposed of Quot making Quot the mediums in the Cabinet in full View of other spirits for the entertainment of the a every one in the Hall. It was then proposed Zience called a sudden halt to the Quot show Quot to have a dance an old fashioned Hoe Down and so after gathering up the Many frag so six persons volunteered from the ments which had composed the spirits audience to take a hand in the spiritualistic whose Friendly visits the audience had been frolic and make up the required number for receiving upon the occasion packed them All the set. A Blind fiddler who had walk again into the bodies of the mediums and Edas he said one Hundred Miles to Quot see Quot once More restored them to the vigor the spirits was Given a violin and told to play of their former physical and Fleshy woman something that both the living and the dead Hood and then we were All permitted to once could dance by. All hands being ready the More breathe the pure Quot air Quot of an Quot a haunt big commenced to the tune of old Hundred de Quot atmosphere. What particular country the Light fantastic toe was not in that dance the spirits i saw at mrs. Stewart and miss am sure. More of a Clumsy Quot Stag Morgan s Quot shows Quot in Terre haute came dance Quot or any other kind i never from i am indeed Quot still Quot at a great loss to nested before in All my life than that one know. The Devil As we Are divinely told was. Half the time the spirits even them being the first school teacher who Ever a selves could not distinguish in the Twilight geared on Earth i cannot think that he their own partners while one of them would Ever allow so ignorant inmates of his in making a grab for the chosen victim Quot dominions Quot As they were to wander so far stumbled and came near falling prostrate away from Home in so Quot crude Quot a state As upon the floor. But still the Blind musician they did upon those occasions. Such Quot in continued to Quot saw away Quot apparently un-1 prec dented Quot carelessness on his part in mindful of the Many difficulties which even neglecting the education of his Quot subjects Quot the spirits themselves in the dance going on under his immediate control would to my were made to undergo in so trying an ordeal i mind cast everlasting disgrace upon his of darkness which we were All for the time Quot Santanic majesty Quot As a Quot judicious Quot instructor being enveloped in. The spirits though in the pleasant and enticing paths of useful like those in the flesh soon became tired even of the fun of dancing and so they in Southport.
