For sale by B * Kee "0ccultus, M in Kate Fields Washington, What appears to the Western miad to be a very strange superstition prevails in India about wonderful persons who are said to be of immense age, and who keep themselves se- olnded in places not accessible to the ordinary traveler. So long has this belief been current in India that the name applied to these individuals is well known in the Sanskrit language: "Mahatuia," a compound of two words, "Maha" (great), and "Atma." (soul). The belief in the existence of such persons is not confined to the ignorant, but is shared by tbe educated of all castes. The lower classes look on the Mahatmas as a sort of gods, and think most of their wonderful powers ».nd great age. The pundits or learned class, and educated»Hindus in general, have a different view; they say that Mahatmas are men or souls with- unlimited knowledge of natural laws and of man's history and development. They also claim that the Mahatmas— or Rishees, as they sometimes call them—have preserved the knowledge of all natural laws .for ages, riot only by tradition among their disciples, but also by actual records and in libraries existing somewhere in the many underground temples and passages in India. Some believers assert that there are also stores of books and records in secluded places all over that part of Thibit which is notjknown to Europeans, access being possible only for the Mahatmas. The credence given to such a universal theory grows out of an old Indian doctrine that man is a spiritual being—a soul, ia other words— and that this soul takes on different bodies from life to life on earth in order to arrive at such perfect knowledge, through repeated experience as to enable one to assume a body flt to be the dwelling place of a Mahatma or perfected soul. Then, they say, that particular soul becomes a spiritual helper to mankind. The perfected men are said to know the truth about the genesis of the worlds and systems as well as the development of men on this and other planets. Were such doctrines as these held only in India, it would be natural to pass the subject by with this brief mention. But when it is found that a large body of people in Europe and America hold the same beliefs, it is interesting to note such •>•" un Western development of an invocation, and a Materialist read a service. All this of course drew forth the satire of the press, but served the purpose of gaining some attention for the young society. Its history since then has been remarkable and it is safe to say that no other similar body in this century has drawn to itself so much consideration, stirred up such a thinking among the people upon mystical subjects, and grown so rapidly amid the loudest derision and against the fiercest opposition wifllin the short space of fifteen years. THE FUTURE OF TO.A.V. IN In- Keeping up With tU« ('allure and l*roarr«»» of Woman "MOVE ON." The Law of tli« Street UK It is JVow ITnderMtood. TENNYSON AN» Wax-Chewlnz In the lllcli School* From 11 VlNitor'H Btantl-polnt. thought. The Theosophical Society was founded in New York in 1875 with the avowed object of forming a nucleus for the Universal Brotherhood and its founder estate that they believe the Indian Mahatmas directed them to establish such a society. Since its foundation it has gained members in all countries, including people of wealth as well as those in moderate circumstances and the highly cultured also. Within its ranks there flourish beliefs in the Maba'trnas of India, and in re-incarnation, and its twin doctrine, "Karma." This last holds that no power, human or divine, can. save one from the consequence of acts performed, and that in this life we are experiencing the results due to us for acts and thoughts which were ours in a preceding incarnation. This has brought out a large body of literature in books and magazines published in the United States, England and India, and elsewhere. Kewspapers are published in the interest of the new-old cult in the vernacular of Hindustan and also in Old Ceylon. Even Japan has its periodicals devoted to the saiue end, and to ignore so widespread a movement would bespeak ignorance of the factors at work in our development When such eminent authority as the great French savant.Emile Bournouf, says that Theosophical movement must be counted as one of the three great religious influences ia the world to-day, there is no need of an excuse for presenting its features in detail to readers imbued with the civilization of the West. Above the two principal doctrines promulgated by the Theosophical Society, have been merely hinted at. It is well now to notice the fact that the society itself wag organized amid a shout of laughter, which at intervals ever since has been repeated. Very soon after it launched forth, its president, CoL Henry S. Oloott, who during our late war was a familiar figure in Washington, found a new member in Baron Henry Louis De Palm, who died and obligingly left his body to the Colonel to be cremated. The funeral was held in Masonic Hall, New York, and attracted great attention. It was Theosophieal m its character. Colonel Olcott presided, a noted Spiritualist offered For the traveling public, as we have alrsady seen, the law of the street is motion; a law not more strictly enforced by the London policeman ordering Jo to "move on," that it was in New York, -when an enterprising dealer blocked the way by exhibiting to curious crowds seven sisters in his show-window, combing their wonde/f ul hair. The court considered such an exhibition highly sensational and condemned it, and the consequent obstruction as a public nuisance. It was abated, and the public procession resumed its movement. But it is not encroachments only that embarrass public travel The opposite courses and cross currents of travel itself cause inconvenience, and have led to a variety of rules of precedence and passage which, taken together, constitute our "law of the road," This law of the road is somewhat complex and uncertain, being still in the formative period. Pedestrians meeting etieh other may pass to the right or left, according to their whim. So may riders on horseback. So may vehicles proceeding along streets crossing at right angles, or passing each other in the same direction. In all four cases each is bound to exercise due care not to injure the other. But vehicles moving in opposite directions must pass each other to tho right. One attempting to pass or to keep to the left, even though in a loaded wagon meeting a light one, takes the risk of possible injury without chance of redress; but his offence would not justify his adversary in wilfully running him down. For many years it was, sought to establish that in the public streets, as on the highway of the sea, the stronger must give way to the weaker; that vehicles should yield to the pedestrian; bxit the struggle was in vain, and it is now settled that drivers and walkers must maintain mutual watchfulness and look out for each other. If, however, the driver goes at reckless rate, especially if, as is irritatingly common, he dashes over a cross-walk, he is liable to a strict accoutabilitv at the complaint of any injured foot-passenger. —From "The Lights of the Citizen as a User of the Public Streets," by FRANCIS LTNDE STETSON", in May Soribner. it must be confessed that man has had a long innings. Perhaps it is true that he owed this to his physical strength, and that he will only keep it hereafter by intellectual superiority, by the dominance of mind. And how in this generation is he equipping himself for the future? He is a money-making animal. That is beyond dispute. Never before were there such business men as this generation can show—Napo- leans of finance, Alexanders of adventure, Shakespeakes of speculation, Porsons of accumulation. He is great in his field, bat is he leaving the intellectual province to woman? Does he read as much as she does? Is he becoming anything but a newspaper-made person? Is his mind getting to be like the newspaper? Speaking generally of the mass of business men—and the mass are business men in this country—have they any habit of reading books? They have clubs, to be sure, but of what sort? With the exception of a conversation club here and there, and a literary club, more or less perfunctory, are they not mostlj social clubs for comfort and idle lounging, many of them known, as other workmen are, by their "chips?" What sort of a book would a member make out of "Chips from any Workshop?' 1 Do the young men, to any extent, join in Browning elnbs and Shakespeare c,lubs and Dante clubs? Do they meet for the study of history, of authors,; of literary periods, for reading, and discussing what they read? Do they in concert dig in the encyclopedias, and write papers about the correlation of forces, and about Savonarola, and about the Three Kings? In fact, what sort of a hand would the Three Kings suggest to them? In the large cities the women's clubs, pursuing literature, art, languages, botany, history geography, geology, mythology, are innumerable. And there is hardly a village in the land that has not from one to six clubs of young girls who meet once a week for some intellectual purpose. What are the young men of the villages and the cities doing meantime? How are they preparing to meet socially these young ladies who are cultivating their minds? Are they adapting them selves to the new conditions? or are they counting, as they always have done, on the adaptability of women, on the facility with which the members of the bright sex can interest themselves in base-ball and the speed of horses and the chances of the "street"? Is it comfortable for the young man, when the talk about the last notable book, or the philosophy of tbe popular poet or novelist, to feel that laughing eyes are sounding his ignorance?—CHARLES DUDLEY WARNER, In Editor'sDrawer of Harper's Magazine for May. A BUDDHIST BRIDE. Recently it was the pleasure of the Journal's correspondent to visit the High Schools. It was an occasion when the public was invited to be present tnerefore the pupils were supposed to have on their company behavior. It was a pleasant sight to see the room-full of girls and boys all attentive, alert and following intelligently as their faces donated, the beautiful thoughts of the Poet Laureate as placed before them by Judge Baldwin, but—Ye Go3s—there were twenty-five pair of jaws at least working with all possible strength on tolu—Tennyson and Tolu. What a conbination! Think of receiving the exquisite sentiments of "In Memoriam and Idyls of the King" with one's jaws going like a threshing machine and one's countenance portraying the contortions of a frog under a galvanic battery! What respectful deference to Tennyson to say nothing of his interpeter! I suppose a teacher's jurisdiction doss not extend to the jaws of his pupils but&any teacher would be justified in refusing to have tolu used in the school-room. He should appeal to the superintendent and to tbe Board of Trustees if his own wishes are net sufficient in the matter. Tolu is bad enough any place but in the High Schools it is positively indecent. It should be prohibited entirely. In a few weeks these "sweet girl graduates" will come out in white dresses with pink ribbons on their essays and posies in their hands and tell us most sweetly all about "footprints in the sands of time," "Self-culture" and all the topics dear to the graduate's heart. Will they chew when they read? If so the public ought to be warned in time—it is no fun to watch the High School chew even though long practice has made them perfect in it. Tolu-chewing is abominable in anybody but when it comes to pupils in the ''ologies" ,it is inexcusable and it ia a marvel that any teacher can endure the sight of these rows of wax-cbewers without going into violent spasms. There are girls in town who even chew in church and a minister was heard to remark recently that bethought of resurrecting the old-fashioned Beadle whose duty it was to go around with a ceiling- broom and punch people who misbehaved "and depend upon it," he said, "the tolu-chewers wouldget the first punch." A preacher ought not to preach to tolu-chewers; a teacher ought not to teach to tolu- chews, these professions demand more respect and should exact it even if they only get it protempore. In conclusion let me ask the High School, when next they have invited company in humanity's name to stick their tolu under the desk for a brief time. VISITOR. FaonUar Marriage Ceromonlet Wit by a Missionary In Yjldla. A missionary describes a marriage ceremony which he witnessed in tb« palace of the Governor of Cambodia, as follows: "I was ushored, amid a tremendous din of gongs, into ;i large room beyond the reception hall, where were seated the Governor and about a hundred noblemen and invited g-uests. The bridegroom, ayoungman about twenty years of age, elegantly attired in oiik garments, was also there. "By the tirno wo foreigners were seated, a procession—headed by the bride, supported on either side by demure-looking matrons composed principal! y of aged or married women, and elegantly attired—entered slowly and marched toward the Governor. "The bride was not particularly interesting as regards personal charms. She was younff. however, and dressed richly and in good taste. Besides her giik dress she wore a gold-embroidered scarf upon her .shoulders; also gold rings upon her fingers, bracelets upon her wrists and armlets above tbe elbows. "The bride took up her position near the bridegroom, both sitting upon the floor, but not looking toward each other; in fact, throughout the entire ceremony they both were perfectly impassive and nonchalant. "The marriage ceremony fttper now beg-a.n. A number of wax candles were brought in on a salver, and then lighted by onn of the nobles. The silver waiter was then passed around between the company eight times, each one saluting- the couple and wishing them good fortune by blowing the smoke toward them, thus expressing something like the old English custom of throwing the slipper" after a newly married couple—the band of striner instruments playing- the meanwhile. "Two largo velvet cushions having been previously placed before the bride and bridegroom, and upon them a large sword, the leader of the theatricals now came forward and went through, fo; 1 a few moments, a most fantastical sword exercise. Dishes had been placed before the couple uponthe floor, with covers upon them. Nothing, however, was eaten. •'Next the hands of the expectant couple were bound together, and to each other, with silken threads, by the woman attendants, probably some near relatives. Thus were they truly joined in Buddhist wedlock. And this completed the simple yet effectir ceremony."" Tho Fairies' Well. The return date of Mr. Carroll Johuson, the eminent Irish comedian, late of Johnson & Slavin's minstrels, in the above very pretty romantic Irish drama is noted with pleasure by Logansport theater goers, by whom the rendition of the play a couple of months ago here was so rnuoh enjoyed and so highly commented on. Those who saw the play at that time will remember that it treats of the loves and enmities, the sorrows and sufferings, the amusements and privations of Irish peasantry. There is the true lover, who would die for his sweetheart, and there is the heartless, kindless villain, who wants to marry the pretty girl himself. There is the grasping landlord, the high-spirited tenant, the faithful friend and the treacherous deceiver. All this is blended together so harmoniously by the several excellent members of the cast and is surrounded by such a pleasing stage setting as to pro duce the happiest effect, A large audience should greet this excellent company next Wednesday evening.

A nasturdly Threat. The following postal card was yesterday received by Mr. A. J. Murdock. As Mr. Murdoek's boys are all girls, and slinging stones is hardly sport for girls, it is probably that the author of the postal is threatening the wrong man: "I want your boy to quit a slingen stones at me and my horses with slings, they hit me twist, if they do it agin i will put somethin in your pump that will make them puke ther durned guts out sure as you live, er ile pisen yer horses." The dispicable meanness of the dastardly spirit which prompted the above malicious threat needs no comment in condemnation of the vile menace. The person who is capable of harboring such resentment is a dangerous member of society, only deserving to be made a perpetual outcast. "The Southwestern Limited" via tbe C., C., C. & St. L. Ry.
