The deceased was possessed of more than average intelligence, and was ever ready to bestow a kind and sympathetic word to those around her. Those who knew her best will miss her most. Nay, dry thy tears ; her soul is free ; Disease no more can hold her fast. Her happiest days on earth the last. To think that soon in Heaven shed be.

R. Elliott to C. Lindstrom Lots Mozart Hall was crowded last night to witness the seance Riven by Annie Eva Fay and C. C. Braddon, Long before 8 oclock, the time advertised to commenoe, every bench and chair was filled. The proceedings opened with a short address from Mr. Braddon, in which be impressed upon bis audience In general and the boys in particular, the advisability of making as little noise as possible. He then went on to give a sketch of Miss as a pub-llo medium, and gave the names of several distinguished European potentates and acieatisti who bad indorsed her aa being the genuine artlole. Mr. Braddon observed that tbepubllo could Judge for themselves as to the source from which life manifestations' produced came. He said that there were three causes usually assigned, namely : Spirit power, odio force and jugglery. He took the odlo force theory as bla standpoint and claimed the manifestations to be ecientific facts. A committee of Investigation was then nominated by Dr. A. T. Hudson, consisting of Dr. MoICaig aud Thomas Y. Read, agent for Wells, Fargo & Co., who after some further remarks from Mr. Braddon proceeded to closely examiue the cabinet and its surroundings. The cabinet, if suoh it can be oalled, consisted simply of four iron rods fastened to the stage. To these were attached red curtains which formed a eqnare of some eight feet. The side faeing the audience was fixed with a draw curtain and had a square hole covered by a flap in its center. When the committee had thoroughly convinced itself that there was nothing about the cabinet but what was above board, Miss Fay appeared and made her bow to the audience. THE MEDIUM Miss Fay, who is a slightly-built lady of about 25 years of age, with a profusion of light hair and a pretty expressive face, lost no time in getting to business and took her seat on a camp-stool inside the cabinet. At her back was a wooden stanchion into which was screwed an Iron ring. The mediuma hands were then securely tied with strips of cloth, the knots of which were sewn with black thread by theeommitlee. These strips of cloth were tied to the iron ring. A similar ring was screwed into the stanchion Immediately behind her head, and Miss Fays neck fastened to it by another strip of cloth. Her feet were also tied. This left her in each a position that It was impossible to move hand, foot or head without bursting the bandages. When Miss Fay had been firmly secured and duly inspected and approved by the committee, a bell, tambourine and a mouth organ or harmoniphon were placed in her lap. THE SPOOKS AT WORK. No sooner had the curtain been drawn than the tambourine began to rattle, the bell to ring and the har moniphon to give forth strange noises. On the curtain being drawn aside the medium was found in exactly the same position she had been left. Of this fact the committee assured itself by a close examination of the surronnding8. A glass of water was then bronghtand placed upon the tambourine on Miss Fays lap, and the curtain pulled to. Inafew seconds the glass was found between the mediums teeth and the water gone, Mr. Read was then shut np with Miss Fay. He placed his hands upon her lap, and had his own head, covered with a tin bucket; inside the cabinet were placed the guitar and tamboui-ine; inside the tambourine were placed some sheets of paper, and between Miss Fays teeth a pen-oil. The curtain was drawn to and the noises at once commenced. When exposed to view the bucket still reposed upon Mr. Reads head, the medium was still tied and several communications were found written upon the sheets ol paper. THOSE ME8SAGES. Mr. Braddon then read to the audience the following messages supposed to be irom the spirit world; Dear father and mother: Why wish me to return? I am better off in spirit life. Mobbis Minks. Marks was drowned at North Beach about a year ago. Janette Kathberger Am suable to write. I was seventy-one years old when death called me away. I have many things to say in private to my family. LaDBENUE Ktami-er. The last message was: To Henry Harris: Six years ago I left yon at the age of twenty-nine. I often am with you, and my little one is with me. Cabbie. Although persons in the audience knowing the spirits sending communications or the persons to whom they were sent, were requested to respond, no one cared to get up in public. Mr. Braddon then announced waa a prejudloe against ropea and apologi.ed for their use in the present Instanue. A small ooll of rope was then placed In theoahlnet, the medium entored and the ourtaln waa drawn to. In a few moments he waa found firmly seoured to the chair by both wrists. table was then placed by his side on whloh were bells, a guitar, eto., and the cabinet closed. Soon the guitar began to play, and was poked out through the hole in the curtain. Some of the audience declared that they saw spirit bands appear several times at the opening during this performance. Mr. Braddon next gave TUB LYMAN TEST. This test consisted of a tin backet put on a chair with a ring In it, and a wooden hoop on the top, with Dr. MuKaigs coat and vest hung on the chair back. When the cabinet was opened, although the medium was he so desire. A. Mail re- sUlTfirraiy lied the right sleeve ofl porter Inspected the stage this morn the coat was found on his arm, and I wd found on tbs floor beneath the buoket, vest, hoop and ring tbs aperture aome pieces of the cloth strung on It. Ail this time gas was I with whioh Miss Fay had been tied, burning behind the cabinet and all I some fresh sawdust and the sides were closely watohed by the wiw. The cloth waa oommittee. The spirit knots were A QLEEIt DISCO VEKY. A Couple of I.oose Boards ionad In Bloanrt Hall. At the oonoluslon of the so-qalied "spiritual performance in Mozart Hall last night a number of gentlemen Inspected the stage while the oablnet waa being taken down. Upon trying a couple of short boards in the floor and within the oablnet, it was found that the nails by whioh they had been fastened to the Joist were broken otf short, and that the boards could be taken up easily. This left an aperture about eighteen inohes long by nearly a foot wide. The apace underneath the atage Is open on both sides, and a person oould easily get under the bole should he so desire. A Mail then examined and pronounoed to be tied by other bande than the mediums. miss fays final effort. Three ohairs were next placed In front of the oablnet and some lady requested to step on the stage. A Mra. Lamprey responded, and took her seat on the right band chair. Dr, MoKaig sat in the middle and Mias Fay to his left, Dr. MoKaig holding both her hands in his. A blanket was then pinned up around them leaving only their heads exposed. Mr. Read baviog satisfied himself by looking In from behind and in front that there was no one Inside, the manifestations began. Theae consisted of materialized spirit hands throwing out bells, playing upon the guitar and tambourine and rapping Dr. MoKaig over the head and shoulders. Even while Mr. Read was peeping through from behind, these manifestations continued. A com. munieatlon was also handed out in the tambourine from a spook called "Wilson Goodman, who said he wanted to speak to aome one. This closed Miss Fays part of the performance. BRADDONS FASTENINGS. Mr. Braddon then stepped into the cabinet and requested some person or persons used to tying knots to oord him np. W. G. Phelps volunteered and with the assistance of the committee soon bad him firmly knotted up. The orchestra then struck up Sweet Spirit Hear My Prayer. When they had tortured the audience for sometime with their horrible discords, the mediums voice was heard proceeding from the cabinet and asking to be liberated, as the spirits refused to untie him and the knots hurt. A vote was then taken to whether he should be liberated or no. The noes were In the majority. Mr. Phelps then strove to right himself with the public by stating that the medium had raised a new tied in. to knots, and the knots sewed with while thread. The pieces of cloth had been cat off at the knots. They were probably knooked Into the hole when the boards were taken up after the performance last night. On the table in the epace occupied by Miss Fay last night when not on the stage waa a crumpled towel containing fragments of fresh flowers and leaves. Some of the Spiritualists in the audience ex pressed the opinion that the flowers thrown out of the cabinet, and afterwards given to some in the audience, had been plucked by spirit bands, Id the absence of any other explanation as to the manner in which they came there, bat the discovery Just made will probably convince them that they were produced by the aid of a towel and the "odlo force. T. Y. Read, one of the committee who assisted In tying the medium, states that the knots were secured by him with black thread, and not white thread, as was found in the knots under the stage. He said also that he tried the loose boards mentioned above before the performance commenced, and that they were fast. While alttiDg on the stage be was eeriain that he felt some one moving under the stage and heard a noise which might be produced by hammering. When he examined the floor after the performance, he picked up the boards readily with his Ungers and found that the nails had been freshly broken off. He described his experience while sitting with Miss Fay in the cabinet with the silk handkerchief and the tin bucket over his head. He bad his bauds resting upon her hip, and while the tambourine and guitar were being played, reached one of his hands towards the ladys shoulder on an exploring expedition. As be did so he received a sharp rap over the back of the hand with the tambourine and the medium asked him whether he was afraid. He took the hint and placed hia hand upon the ladys bip as before.

Still the voice begged to he set free, declaring that its owner would submit to-day at the hotel to any amount of tying up. Just as the audience bad begun to look od the whole thing as a fraud, the curtain was drawn aside, and there was the vacant chair, and Mr. Braddon walked round from the back without a rope on him. The receipts amounted to over $400, and Miss Fay will have no cause to regret her visit to Stockton. - From To-diys Call. About 9 oclock yesterday morning, Charles Wagner was found hanging by the neck dead, In the basement of the cutlery shop of John Bauer, 637 Kearny street. About two weeks ago deceased came to this city from Stock-ton, where he had been employed as a rancher, and was stopping with his friend Mr. Bauer. Saturday night Mr. Baner romamed up with deceased watching him, as he had for some days threatened violence to himself. Yesterday morning Mr. Bauer left deceased at his place of business abeut 8 oclock, to go out for breakfast, the latter not wishing to go. After breakfast Mr. Bauer consulted with friends what was beat to do with Mr. Wagner, bnt on bis return to hia shop found the deceased in the position described. He bad taken a piece of rope, about nine feet long, made a slip-noose with one end, which he bad placed abont his neck. The other end he passed over a gas pipe, then he stood on a pile of ashes, that no one was I drawing the rope as tight as possible, He attempted to do so, hut I and securely fastening it, and then Fay did not move at all, and Mr. Read is of the opinion that the music playing and other phenomena were done by a female confederate who came np through the trap door. In the triek in which Dr. MoKaig was put under a blanket with the medium and another lady medium from the audience, Mr. Read was asked to go to the rear of the cabinet and look under the curtain to satisfy himself within. found that the curtain waa nailed down so close to the floor that he could not see anythiog higher than a couple of inches from the floor, and consequently was unable to see whether any one was on the table or not. He called Dr. McKalge alien lion to the noises under the stage, and changed seats with him, bat the noise eeemed to come over to his side again as if the person underneath desired to take advantage of him, be being deaf in one ear. Another suspicious circumstance was noted, and that waa that when Professor Black, a well-known magician, was proposed as one of the com' mlttee, the medium, who was sitting in a curtained recess at one side of the stage, exclaimed in a voice loud enough to be heard by those sitting in the first few rows, "take the first two, meaning Dr. McKaig and T.

He waa on one occasion staying with the Arnolds, In Westmoreland, when plcnio was being celebrated. Lota were drawn as to who should stay at home and "mind the bouse, and the office fell to Mr. Bradley. On the return of the plcnio party he remarked that it was a very good thing he bad stayed behind, as tramp bad tried his best to get in through the drawing-room window and would have done so had it not been for him.

The Stockton Branch of the Irish Land League held a meeting at College Hall yesterday afternoon, Vice-President Buckley presiding. Secretary Murray made a brief address aud said that he saw in the signs of the times a crisis in the affairs of Ireland. England evidently intended to carry out lier coercive policy, and would, if unrestrained, enforce her odious and oppressive laws. The league would soon be called on for moral and financial aid, and that aid should come from America. It was time for the sons of Ireland to rally anew for her support or see her banner trailing lower than ever In the dust. John Sexton eulogized the late President Garfield, and said that when sympathy was flashed across the ocean by the natious of Europe, shackled Ireland was one of the most sincere mourners. Vice-President w Buckley called attention to the fact I certificates of his character to Rev, that the Executive Committee of the Mr- Fieenor tn order that the rever-branch had never organized , and he 1 gentleman may stand in no dan-urged a speedy organization.

Death of a Mach-Married Woman Eastern Paper, j Lady EUenborough, who, since her divorce fifty-one years ago, passed under the name of Lady Digby, and led a life of strange romance in the East, has just died in Syria. When married to Lord EUenborough, who was regarded as the most classic and Ciceronian orator of the day, and who ran a career of memorable notoriety as Governor-General of India, she was of singular beauty and accomplishments. Very shortly after her marriage she formed an attachment for a Russian diplomat then serving on the English embassy, and a divorce was the result. Resuming her family name on this, she led a wild life for some years on the Continent, and was repeatedly married. At the age of fifty, however, she abandoned such courses and settled down to a peaceful and happy life with a sheik of Damascus, whose tribe she joined and became a good wife and a devotee to works of chanty and kindness. Travelers who met her in the East spoke in glowing terms of those virtues in later life which redeemed the frailities of her youth. American Cars on British Roads. London Times.
