MOBS The Immediate Dovmfall of Our Social System. , By Psychic Vision Ho Sees That Gould Hasn't a Penny and Thnt Anarchy la Close at Hand—A Mixture of Shrewdness and Crankisnis. [COPYRIGHT, 1S91.1 I stopped at the Continental Hotel on jny way doivn-toivn this morning to ask Mr. George Francis Train if he Icnew the •whereabouts of a man who had been swallowed out of my sig-ht in New York's tossing- and bubbling. "I can't help you in the matter," said Citizen Train, "but I don't think you need trouble yourself. We shall all be •wallowed up almost immediately. "If you'owe money, don't pay it; if anybody owes you money collect it ( TRACT ^promptly, for ive are on the eve of a frightful convulsion." I asked him what in particular seemed to be going- wrong- with tie system of things. "Come and sit down;" he said, "and Til put the situation before you. Then do you write out the truth as I give it to yon, and the editor will red pencil it and blue pencil it, arid if you are paid on space you won't get enough out of it to buy a cup of cofEee. There is only one Step that could bring about a genuine editorial reform, and that is the abolition of editors." The hotel parlors were crowded, but the Citizen found two chairs by a window overlooking Broadway. Here we spoke in low tones like two conspirators, and a couple of lovers wondered at .us, and an old gentleman frowned over his newspaper. A baby tumbled Into the Citizen's hat beside him on the floor, and the Citizen patted her head and said: "By psychic power I see the coming destruction; I feel myself drawn into it *8 into the great mselstrom off the coast of Norway. I hear .voices; they caU: 'Train, Train.' "The other night I went to the Old Gnard ball. It was beautiful, beauti- iul, with the lights and the uniforms «ndthe dresses; but I saw corpses and tomb-stones. and skulls. I could give .you the names of three hundred men j-ho are about to die, but it wouldn't 'oe fair to shock them by announcing the fact prematurely." Here the small girl held up a gayly dressed doll. "Yes, it's pretty," and Train pulled her curls and smiled. Two sorts of storms seemed getting confused. I sought for phrase to ask if the Citizen's-psychic signal service had kept him informed of the progress smd present whereabouts of the Asocial hurricane. , • . ' "The earth trembles before it—" The. small girl sat down with momentum. Train lifted her and gave her his hand to hold by—"That flurry in WalLstreet last November was the first breath of the gale, that and the troubles of the Baring Brothers. It blew over, says •everybody, and the skies are now clear; \ tmt the quiet is the hush before the 1 cyclone." \ "What has bred the gale?" J "Our greed of money, our perversion Sr of our appetites and passions. "We have K iwrecked human nature. There isn't a J, living man or woman who is sound." ^ I asked how the social convulsion i, would begin. ft "You know how it is in a theater?" . Train took from an inside pocket the j* familiar long black pocket-book, and C from this the familiar pencil and folded f paper and began to clear up his test f •with some of his characteristic illustra- "r- tions. "Here," and he drew a small. »nd irregular circle, "are the people in ^ the boxes. Do they understand or know anything about the people in the galleries?' They think themselves quite a S separate order of beings. Here," and le drew another small circle at some ['distance, "are the people in the galleries. Do they understand or know any thing about.- the box people? Nothing, one says, could ever bring the two sets together. Let a little street Arab shout fire. Now here," and he added a small rectangle in the corner of ^ Ids drawing, "is the door. There is a ^-grand rush, and gallery and "box peo- s pie get well mixed there. '. "Do you understand the little allegory? People will wake some fine morning within a few weeks and find •that Jay Gould hasn't a penny and the Standard.Oil Company is in the dirt and igie has his bread to beg and there t't a dry-goods house or a mill or fac- that can pay ten cents on the dol- There's a great building going up •onder, seven stories high; the money it built it's all gone, eaten up, drunk ip; nobody really has any thing. You'll '"be "as rich as the Vanderbilts or Astors ["to-morrow or the day after, for there's Sjnothing for any of you. All bubbles, ' tobies!" "And then?" "Anarchy." The Citizen said it sweetly.- Pencil hand, he had'quite regained his com"Blood?" I emulated his "I see what is coming, but I am not constrained to reveal." "And after anarchy?" "Psychic force will be the great ruling power." "And who will exercise the psychic force?" "That is hard to say, if they can't duplicate me. I possess it but I've no revelation to cheat the grave. But would you like this thing on a broad, philosophic basis? "Here am.I, as a little boy"— Again the pencil and again a circle, and again at the prospect of pictures the child— "This is the cyclopean eye, the ego, the individual. If the other toys jump five feet, I jump ten and cry 'hooray,' 'hooray!' I go into the woods with a barrel and I shout into the bung hole; this is the barrel and this is bung"—a circle, with a smaller circle inside—"I shout into the bung 'GEORGE FHAK- CIS TRAIN! • GEORGE FRANCIS TRAIN!' And the woods echo it back, 'GEOKGE FRANCIS TRAIN! GEORGE FRAJS- CIS TBAIN!'" The Citizen illustrates with his hand trumpet fashion at his mouth and the child is pleased. "I keep this barrel and I shout into it for five years. George Francis Train is very, large and the world very small. Then I travel and 1 find the universe very large and George Francis Train very small. This is the universe"—and on the paper appears a big and very ragged circle, dwarfing the little ones. It has its name, "universe," written for identification inside—"Then I utterly abandon the ego; I give up the individual, and by so doing I. attain unto the universal. By having nothing I have every thing; by being nothing I' myself am all tilings. "Nobody can understand that by repudiating the one I gather all things into the one, and so they call me a crank. That's my own word; I applied • it first twenty-five years ago. A crank turns things. Men never call a fool a crank, it's always a man of genius. . "But this Merging of self in the all is psychism. Mesmerism and hypnotism and magnetism and electric force are all branches of it_ People are getting glimpses into it as into imdiscovered countries, and you find knowledge of it The baby had orojpped asleep on a sofa, the old gentleman nodded over his paper, the lovers had gone out for a stroll.. .There was a young man waiting to see Train. I. have kept the mascot, but T will go shares with you. ELIZA PUTNAM The Wrons Man, Great Merchant (to his favorite drummer)—Look here, Mr. Grippe, old man Bilter, hitherto one of pur best customers, is getting away from us. Bilter has a daughter. Now, couldn't you sort of edge up to the young lady—you are a handsome fellow, Grippe. You know •what I mean—just to get. back the old man. Grippe—No, sir! AVhen .Tosiah Grippe so far forgets himself as to forfeit in the slightest degree the sacred principles of truth and justice, of honor and manhood, may. his blood run molten lead and his tongue cleave to the roof of his moxvtb. Sooner than cast tiie slightest shadow over the lily white effulgence of otie of the fairest of God's loveliest creatures I would''Mie ten thousand deaths. I say no; a thousand times, no. You have mistaken your 'man. Besides, she fired me out of the house last nig-ht.—Clothier and Furnisher. —The Modern Child.—Jeames—"Miss Elsie, your mamma wishes you to go out for a walk in the park this afternoon." Little Elsie—"Tell her that I do not wish to go, James. I have made up my mind to go to -^the opera this evening, and I do not want to get tired; and say, James, couldn't yon hook me another pot of jam from the storeroom?" —Munsey's Weekly. Appropriately Dressed. "How appropriately Miss Caustique is dressed?" "Why, in wh:£t way?" "Her gown is made of moire ao tique."—Boston Herald. An unusually fine specimen of a phosphorescent fiing-us was recently found on'some wood-work in a damp mine near Scranton, p a . It .was .fan-shaped and from the tips of its branches sufficient light, it is said, was emitted to see and read moderate-sized print by, while the figiiees on the face of a watch could be plainly seen. There are several phosphorescent fungii, but this species, which possesses the formidable ;name of Ehizomorphus snbterranea, is .said to give the strongest light. Fungii having this peculiarity are usually found on decaying wood, and some species are quite common. In addition to fungii there is a plant, the sap of which is highly phosphorescent, it is called Euphorbia phosphorea and is found growing- wild in the forests of Brazil. It is said to shine the strongest during the appraach of a storsi. Natives have a superstition that in impenetrable thickets the light sometimes becomes SO strong that the plant ignites spontaneously, emits a column of smoke and ultimately blnxes into a clear rtame.— Chicago News. —"Oh, I'm so disappointed! Henry promised me a sealskin this winter; but he didn't get it." "I don't wonder you feel badly. Hope defurred maketh the heart sick."—Puck. THJS CLOSED HORSESHOE.

We are Jike TVatt when he saw the cover of the tea-kettle rise and fall, and there was just about to flash upon him the power, steam; or like Morse when he got 640,000 for the last "mile of telegraph line between Baltimore and Washington; or like Edison when he heard the humming of the wire and dreamed of the telephone. We are on the brink but nobody understands." "Audit is by this sacrifice of the individual that you have become able to exercise psychic power?" "It is like the closure of the horseshoe magnet; here let me show you"— The child bent her head sagely and followed with her finger the outlines of a roughly indicated horseshoe—"The longer the bar remains across it the stronger becomes the magnetic force. Now.I .have barred-my system against animal food for sixteen years. I take my coffee and my cheese and my bit of cracker-three times a day. Sometimes I think of doing without food, but I am not sure that one sound apple can live •untainted in such a barrel of rotten ones. Yet my power increases. When I went 'round the world I did not ask the cap- .tain of the steamer to put on extra coal to enable me to beat the record, but he did it; psychic force compelled him." "And how. in future will this psychic force control the world?" "A woman writes me that she haa received a revelation of a new religion, of which I am to be the god; it' a m use see the I get. women.

Here"—and a, second circle inclosed the first— "is the wider influence of two. Now, you'can add three, four, any number of psychic forces.- Suppose a psychic convention of one hundred. Now if sixty of you who are weak or, perhaps, only six of you who are strong, think that a certain person, must be chairman, he will be psychically compelled to rise from his seat before a word has been spoken and take the desk of the presiding officer.

DAYTON, TKNN,, a beautiful town of 5,000 in- nnmtants, located on the Queen and Crescent Route, 2*)3 miles south of Cincinnati, has hitherto kept aloof from the excitement attending- the boom of the New Sooth; but the possibilities offered by a town already established with zn inexhaustible supply of coal, iron and timber, and with cokcing ovens, blast furnaces, factories arid hotels in operation, were too great to escape the eye of the restless capitalist, and a stronr party of wealthy men from Chicago. Chattanooga and Nashville, in connection with prominent banking firms in New England, have formed a company to be known as the Corporation of Dayton, for the sale of town lots, the establishmcn' of industrial enterprises, etc. It is an assured fact that within six months Dayton will have another railroad from the south-east, which will make it an important junction and transfer poi.it for nearly one-fifth of die freight and passenger traffic between the Great North-west and the South-cast. In addition to this it is located on the C^ and C., one of the largest and most important of the Southern Trunk Lines. It is in the midst of the fertile and beautiful Tennessee Valley; has already an established reputation as a prosperous and .5. e manufacturing town and some. addition al str.cngth as a health resort. The 'strongest firm at present located there7s the Dayton Coal & Iroi, Co., an English Corporation, who have built a standard gauge railroad to their mines, and own '20.000 acres of good coal and iron and timber land, just West of and adjoining Dayton. It is proposed to have a Land Sale December 3rd, 4th and'oth, and special trains will be ran from New England" also from the important cities of the jVortJi and North-west, which will undoubtedly be a gre'a't success, as tic plan is to discourage extravagant prices and put the property in the hands ofthe people atapnce where the) can iiflnrd to hold and improve it. Excursion tickets, Cincinnati to Dayton and return, will be .sold by agents QUKBN AND CRTCS- CKNT ROUTE and connecting lines North. Four through trains daily-from Cincinnati without chunjfc of cars.

It Is said to be Oregon grape root (a great remedy in the far west for those complaints) combined with simple herbs, and Is made for use by pouring on boiling water to draw out the strength. It sells at 6(5 cents a package and is called Lane's Family Medicine. Sample iree. leod Dyspepsia Makes the lives of many people miserable, and often leads to self-destruction. Distress after eating, sour stomach, sick headache, heartburn, loss of appetite, a faint," all gone" feeling, bad taste, coated tongue, and irregu- (j. f larlty of the bowels, are UISTTUSS gome of the more common After symptoms. Dyspepsia does Eatine^ notl 8efc wel1 o£ itself - II = requires careful, persistent attention, and a remedy like Hood's Sarsa- jiarilla, which acts gently, yet surely and efficiently. It tones the stomach and other organs, regulates the digestion, creates a good appetite, and by thus C'^fc- overcoming the local symp- j . toms removes the sympa-"«®3-«ZlCn6 thetie effects. of the disease, banishes the headache, and refreshes the tired mind. " 1 have bben troubled with dyspepsia. I had but little appetite, and what I did eat MAS*rt- distressed me, or did me •£"* rl little good. In aa hour DUI*n after eating I would experience a faintness, or tired, all-gone reeling, as though I had not eaten anything. My trouble, I think, was aggravated by ray business, which Is that of a painter, and from being more or less shut up in a Rt\t*r room with fresh paint.
