Prof. Cooic's Entertainment.
Prof. Cooke, the world renowned ex
poser of all Spiritualistic Shams, gave
an entertainment at Fitzgerald Hall
on Friday and Saturday evenings last.
The IIehald attended on Saturday
and was much interested in the exhi
bition. Prof. C. uses no clap-trap,
makes no elaborate motions, neither
sighs nor groans, but tells what ho is
about to do in a straight forward man
ner that wius respect. Of course we
have all seen the exposa of untying
the ropes, and the cabinet tricks are so
old that no one believes now that spir
its ever had anything to do with the
manifestations, yet it is always inter
esting to the younger ones and to all
who have never seen them explained
or who do not remember the furore of
spiritualism that swept over the coun
try twelve or fifteen years ago when
the Davenports were in their glory.
Aside from this however Prof. Cooko
has with him a Yery wonderful person,
Miss Crawford, a Clairvoyant of great
power. A dozen to twenty questions
were written on paper and shown to
no one but kept in the writer's pocket
and she answered every one correctly.
A Lady asked if she should remain in
Plattsmouth and was answered: "No
she would leave permanently." A man
asked" If his job would last all win
ter" and was answered, " yes."
This Editor wrote the following
question: " What will you taka for the
House? Mr. Young, the only person
who saw it beside ourself, suggested
that it was a rough question, (owing
to the Ball Thanksgiving and two other
performances the same n eck, the Ik. use
was not a good as it should h tve been.)
We crossed this quetioi. out and wrote
this "Where do you play to morrow ?"
without ever thinking of "to-m irrow's"
being Sunday. Miss Crawford answer
ed both questions, the ilrsi. which you
may say we did not intend to ask, by
saying they would " take expoine. for
the house," which they well might; and
the second by saying: " 1 ee ourselves."
" What are we doiug'r" said tin Pro
fef soi1. " Nothing, w e do'.t play on
Sunday go to chi rcV Sunday evei rig."
How she does this Mr. Cook does not
tell in and we can all guess a3 wo
please, call it Psychology, Mesmerism,
uxtremu sensibility, what you like, it
is very wonderful and well worth go
ing to see.
Eve::y once in a while it clouds up
in the afternoon and every body says:
'Well, it's going to snow to-morrow,
our nice weather is at an end at last."
But to-morrow looms up a3 bright and
cheerful ;is ever,. Just think of such
a Thanksgiving elay, and here we are
the 5ih of Dec. 1S7S, and no frost, sun
shining, overcoats at a discount, and
the chickens all thinking it i3 spring
and they must begin to lay.
Some wag started the story that dur
ing the planetary disturbances of the
past year the earth was 'thrown 300
miles farther south," (?) (if any one can
tell where south is after we leave this
little ball) and that accounts for our
warm weather, aud that we are not
going to have any more hard winters.
Lots of folks believe this. The Heu
ald is skeptical, however. We will
have plenty of snow before spring, so
get your sleighs ready.
In Chicago and on the lakes, we seo
the inspectors and light-house keepers
have declared " navigation closed" two
or three timc3, but she won't stay
closed, and cargoes of grain and other
stuff are being shipped daily, much to
their disgust, as they want to lay up
for the winter. They used to try and
make us believe when wo were young
that almost everything that was nice
was naughty, in fact they got up a
proverb, "It's naughty but it's nice."
Now, such weather as this is just nice
not "splendid" but nice, and. the
sourest old bigot can't say there is any
thing naughty about it, for it is not
even " lingering in the lap of ispiing,"
but stands erect on its own merits and
shakes its chubby fist at old winter,
