P— and Hypaotiom Affect Twe
Young Men Queerly.
A startling tale of spiritoalism, hyp-
notism and religion was unfolded re-
eently at Pittsburg by the detention of
two prominent ‘young married men.
According to the stories told by the
friends of the young men, they met at
a seance of sepiritoalists some months
ago. They are faid to have exerted hyp-
motio influences upon each other to such
an extent that they both deserted young
and charming wives.

Until about a year ago Koerner is de-

that time, when he attended a meeting
of spiritnalists. After the meeting
spiritualism absorbed his attention to
the exclusion of his family and the det-
riment of his business. Koerner claim-
ofl to have seen a visiof, the figure of a
man clothed in white, carrying a Bible,
and which told Koerner that he was
commissioned to save a human soul. He
