Three Other Negro Churches
and a Lodge Are
Eastman, Ga,. Aug. 29. —The
charred body of Ell Cooper, a negro,
was found yesterday in the ashes of
a negro church, which was burned
by Incendiaries early in the morn
ing. Three other negro churches
and a negro lodge in this section
were burned Tuesday night.
The acts of violence followed re
ports that the negroes planned to
rise up and "wipe out the white
people." and that Cooper remarked
the negroes had been "run over for

The only explanations for the
burning of the churches and lodge
rooms was that these were said to
have been the scenes of mass meet
ings recently during which the up
rising of negroes was discussed.
Hundreds of copies of a Chicago
negro newspaper were said to have
been distributed at these meetings.
Cooper was taken from hie home
Wednesday night, according to his
wife, by a crowd of about twenty
white men. The negro was taken
several miles by the mob and it
is presumed that he was shot by
the crowd and his body thrown into
the burning church.
The church was discovered in
flames at 1 o'clock In the morning
and residents of the neighborhood
were aroused by shooting.

Attitude Is Swung by Big
Gain in the Mem
Paris, Aug. 29.—The recent col
lapse of the movement for a gen
eral strike is explained In some
quarters by the saying that, while
the extremists were getting control
of the Socialist party, they were
losing their hold on the labor un
ions, which, 300,000 -strong before
the war, now have a membership
of more than 1,500,000. The 300,-
000 were well in hand, It is said
but the 1.200,000 have brought with
them a certain Independence of
thought and action. The conse
quence is that the vast majority of
union men are not ready to accept
sueh radical measures as a general
political strike.
The national committee of the
Labor Federation has issued a sort
of platform declaring that produc
tion should be stimulated and in
creased by all possible means, and
demanding customs barriers be
broken down, that inflated paper
circulation be suppressed, that a
national economic council be or
ganized together with a national or
ganization to control the provision
ing of the country.

Scientific Discussions
by Garrett P. Serviss
Is there a new, 1. e., hitherto un
known, form of matter? The assertion
that there is'seems no more improb
able, no more contrary to human ex
perience than the other extraordinary
assertion, frequently ventured nowa
days, viz., that there is a fourth dimen
sion of space, which is not subject to
any of our familiar means of measuru
rient. Roth propositions are difficult
for a "layman" to understand, and
perhaps both are equally likely, or un
likely, to be true. It may be that
the phenomena and the reasons on
which they are based are so associated
that if one of the two propositions is
found on fact that other must also be
fi unded on fact
Some very surprising things have
beeh coming out lately about the al
leged "new" form of matter. Its
most startling peculiarity if we ae
cepi the claim that it exists at all
is that it seems to oe formed out of
the visible and weighable suostanco of
the human body, and yet is itself gen
[oially invisible and perhaps unwoigh
able, alhtough capable of exercising
astonishing force upon ordinary ma
terial objects.
In one case, that of the Golighers in
Belfast, Ireland, a young woman sit
ting on a chair supported by the plat
form of a weighing scales, and not
in direct contact with the floor or with
any object around her, creates, accord
ing to the testimony of an accredited
physicist. Dr. Crawford, connected with
the Belfast University, some wonder
ful kind of matter, which appears to
issue from her in the shape of a bean,
("a cantilever," Dr. Crawford calls
it), and which passes under a table
placed in front of her chair, forms
an elbow beneath the table, turns up
ward until it comes into contact with
the under surface of the table, and
then exerts an upward force sufficient
to lift the table several feet into the
air, and maintain it there for a con
siderable period of time.
Now, mark a very strange circum
stance. As the table starts to rise
the balance arm of the scales, on
whose platform Miss Goligher sits In
her chair, strikes the top with a sharp
rap, as if a weight had suddenly been
thrown on, and when the indicator is
adjusted it shows that a number of
pounds, corresponding with the actual
weight of the table suspended in the
air, have been added to the pressure
on the platform. In other words, the
young woman appears to have gained
in weight just as many pounds as cor
respond with the weight of the upheld
table, exactly as site would have done
if she had stretched out her arm and
with it lifted the table.
Dr. Crawford, in the course of many
experiments, claims to have traced the
mysterious "cantilever," not by seeing
or by feeling, but by means of pres
sure scales and spring balances, so
placed along its course, between the
medium and the under surface of the
table, that he is able to infer from
their indications the shape, and the
general dimensions, of this beam of
"psychic matter." While he cannot
feel it as a continuous body, yet he
dees experience, he says, a curious,
cold clammy sensation, and something
resembling a breeze or current of air,
when his hand crosses the space where
the invisible mystery exists.
In another case, in many respects
much more extraordinary, that of a
Parisian woman named Marthe
Beraud, the "new matter" is alleged
to issue from the medium's mouth, and
a little of it is said to have been col
lected and analyzed, the final rcsidium
consisting only of a few watery drops,
"consisting mainly of cell detritus,
highly bacterial, with vestiges of other
organic compounds." This medium,
it is declared by persons who are ac
cepted by what seems on the surface
good authority, as trustworthy, can
not only create out of the strange mat
ter human faces, figures, hands, lin
gers, etc., which float about in the air,
but can, on occasion, impart to them
so much reality that a lock of hair
from one of the mysterious heads was
cut off, and examined under a micro
scope, besides being submitted t
chemical tests, which do not appear to
have shown any decided difference be
tween it and genuine hair from a liv
ing human head.
There are, however, so many sus
picious circumstances about these Pa
risian experiments that, notwithstand
ing the fact that they have been seri
ously set forth in responsible publica
tions, no cautious investigator can, It
seems to me, ascribe any scientific
weight to them; but the Belfast ex
periments, perhaps stand on a little
better ground. If we take Dr. Craw
ford at his word, every precaution ap
pears to have been used to exclude
deception, and if he were not so de
termined to insist upon his entirely un
proved hypothesis that "disembodied
spirits" are at the bottom of the
strange phenomena, I should feel little
doubt that eh had disclosed something
worth very careful study.
It will be observed that the whole
question turns upon the fuhdamental
nature of matter, a subject of the pro
foundest scientific thought at the
present time. There are good auth
orities who assert that matter and
force, or energy, are simply different
manifestations of the same entity, or
thing. If the so-called spiritual ele
ment in man approaches closer than
ordinary matter to the fundamental
basis of things, then 1t is at least con
ceivable that in man the "two worlds",
which are really only different phases
of one world, possess a point of Inter

There were two Browns in the vil
lage, both fishermen. One lost his
wife, and the other lost his boat at
about the same time.
The vicar's wife called, as she sup

the Brown whose boat had gone down.
"I am sorry to hear of your great
loss," she said.
"Oh. it ain't much matter," was the

Cossacks Capture
13,000 Bosheviks
and Disperse 20,000
By Associated Press.
'London, Aug. 29.—The Cossacks
under General Kamontov, who suc
ceeded in breaking through the Red
army, captured 13,000 Bolshevik!
and dispersed 20,00(1 mobilized, but
untrained, men. A dispatch has
been received to this effect from
General Kamontov, which refutes
the Bolsheviki claim that his com
munications have been cut.
According to a Bolsheviki com- I
munication received by wireless in
London August 27. the Cossacks
broke through the Red army, whose
heavy masses closed in behind
them, cutting oft their communica
tion with the antl-Bolshcvikl forces.
A Red regiment with forty offi
cers deserted to Kamontov who is
forming a division made up of for- .
mer Bolsheviki. He has evacuated
Tambov and is proceeding north
west towards Koslov, headquarters
of the Bolsheviki southern front.
Dcnikine Near Kiev
General Denikine's advance is
continuing rapidly; he is now within
ten miles of Kiev and twelve miles
from Petlura's forces. If a junction
occurs, the entire old Bolsheviki
forces remaining in the pocket, 250
miles deep on a fifty mile width, to
the south of Kiev will be cut off.
To the northeast General Deni- ,
kine has captured the important j
railway' junction of Bakhmacs, j
twenty miles west of Konotop.
Denikine's cavalry and armored
trains are leading the advance and :
are not meeting with any opposition
along the whole western front. The
Bolsheviki, however, massing on his
center and right, having captured
Volchansk, Valuika, and Buturlin- |
ovka. The plan of General Dcni
kine is to clear the left flank, pre- ;
paratory to a general advance. i
Poles Advance on Dvinsk
The Bolsheviki claim of the cap- ;
ture of Pskov, southwest of Petro- j
grad, is probably correct. Further
to the south the Poles are advanc
ing on Dvinsk, and. to the eastward
have forced the Bolsheviki back
to the Dvina near Polotsk, imperil
ling their line.
South of the Pripet marshes, the
Poles have been checked on the line
of the Sluch river. Heavy fighting i
is going on at Novgorod Volinsk.
Further eastward the Bolsheviki
have retaken Jitomir. This success
has been counterbalanced by the
capture .of Fastov by the Ukrain- .
