They exploded .with deafening crashes, while the sparks flew high In the nir, deluging tlie spectators with showers of burning gold. The- big L.

Write* Itt«tf»gei from Deputed Frl*»d» •art I« C»ll«d a Bplrltoallit Alma Gault, the 14-year-old daughter of Julius Gault, .who lives near Galesburg, Mich., has recently developed great spiritualistic manifestations. She is a handsome and intelligent girl, nnd her father believes 1 she has received a divine call and will not allowher to receive money for,taking messages from .deported friends. • Severn! months ago Mr. Gault bought his daughter a planchetta board to play with. One evening, after his mother died, ho was surprised to see the board epell out hia mother's name. Alma took a pencil and wrote: "Go to ihe pantry and you. will find a paper containing an article on spiritualism." Mr. Griult treated the matter as a joke, but finally found the article. It was a poem. • Mr. Gault says the writing was his mother's exactly. In a day or two the girl found herself writing on a copy-book at school, and was surprised to see that the pen was not tracing the thoughts in her own mind, but something quite foreign. Since then there have been many communications. Alma will frequently sit uown in -broad daylight, .with a sheet of wrapping paper in front of her. She takes the pencil in on unnatural position and in a few moments will be. writing, .the words, being upside down to her. At the time she may be looking out the window. While under control her-arm and hand become cold as ice and powerless to do anytiing but write. Sometimes she uses.the pgbt hand, sometimes the left, nnd often both, writing two distinct messnges, one perhaps in a man's hand, Uie. other in a woman's, at the some time. Everything is donje in the light ond in the full view of everyone. As a result of tho girl's work many'hereto- fore orthodox church members have embraced'tho spiritualistic faith. PREDICTED HIS OWN DEATH. Eccentric M«r> at Ifartfor'fl, Conn,, Had inn Coffin In Readlnci*. Alexander ID wood, of Hartford, Conn., who months ago predicted the time of bis own death, and who has kept bis coffin by his bedside, so firm was Ms belief in his own power of prognostication, died on Saturday night. The end came just 48 hours later than the timo named by him. In accordance with his dying w'ish, hte 'body was placed in the cremating furnace in Boston.' Alexander Inwood was in many respects a strange man. He was self- made and self-educated, having come to this country from. England when- a poor boy. Eccentric in his beliefs nnd doings, he lived a secluded lifej the greatest joy of which was to study. His range of research was very wide, and it can be said safely that few men in this section had acquired suth bJgh literary attainments. His own life he studied with unfaltering zeal, till he said he was able to diagnose the amount of his wanin? vitality so accurately tha.t he could tell the time of his death months ahead. He described to tbe physicians who attended him tbe minutest details of his aggravated stomach ailment niid assured them before they were obliged to reach the soino conclusion that no mortal power could save his life.

He had a good supply of food with him and says he was an'em- ploye of the factory where the hearse- was made, and took this method to- reach his family at Hannibal, Mo. His fellow employes assisted him in making; prepartions for his long ride in the, funeral car and supplied him with food- enough to last 15 days.
