Little Anna Abbott, tho "Georgia Magnet," husband and child, were tho guests, and by a little coaxing they got her to give a few of her experiments. A committee was ohoson from the audience and each member took hold of a chair and tried to hold it still in mid air. She laid her hand on tho wood and moved and tossed tho holders ahout, without any effort on her part. She Btood erect on one heel, holding a billiard cue in one hand and four strong men could not push her from her balance. Five heavy men sat on a chair and George Duatin had his hand on the back of it. She put her hand on his, touching throe fingers to the chair, and without any pressure on Dustin's hand she raised the five men from the floor. Her husband said that anyone' who could lift her from tho floor could have her. Andy Smith and Sam Moore tried awful hard to do so, but failed. She holds a cue in her open hands and five men wore' unable to push it across her hands, Andy Smith, our heavy man, was seated on tho end of a billiard cue and seven men held one end down on tho floor. By placing tho tips of nor lingers against the cue she lifted tho cue, men and all from tho floor and sot them down several feet away.
