Fraudus and Tests
<continued from page 1-35>
against all brutal tests and precautions; but I say now, and once for all, that any medium who will not consent to the adoption of such harmless but efficacious methods as will render his good-faith perfectly apparent, and seal the phenomena occurring in his presence with the stamp of genuineness, is, if not a swindler, at least of little value towards enlightening and correcting public opinion on this momentus question of spiritual intercourse.

<Untitled. “It is rumored...” - about arrival of Oriental Spiritualists of high rank>
It is rumored that one or more Oriental Spiritualists of high rank have just arrived in this country. They are said to possess a profound knowledge of the mysteries of illumination, and it is not impossible that they will establish relations with those whom we are accustomed to regard as the leaders in Spiritualistic affairs. If the report be true, their coming may be regarded as a great blessing; for after a quarter century of phenomena, we are almost without a philosophy to account for them or control their occurrence. Welcome to the Wise Men of the East, if they have really come to worship at the cradle of our new Truth.
