the Gigam/ing of a Sunday school as

tcie ted in getting the plans at ranged

and have decided to ineorpoiato ami

sembly would draw je.uly thousands ol
of people from all paits of the west. II
it can bo put into successful operation il
will prove a wondciful help to tlio city ,
morally , intellectually and linancially.
It is to bo hoped that each citi/cn will
taki ; a pi.iclieal interest in helping along
lliu plan , nnd with a little help from cacli
the success will be as uied.

on the day of Mercury ( Wednesday ) ,
when llm moon wns at the lull , between
midnight nnd tin eo in the imrning ; and
while llio smith was at his work thioo low
masses woie lo be said "for the inten

had been lilted into the handle the ivory
was inseiibcd witli hieroglvphies with ! i
specially prepared burin and exorcised
'Hie wand was of thioo forms , accoid-
ing lo the purpose for which It was to be
used. It might bo either loutid , liKe a
ruler ; shaip nt ono end , like the pointed
sticks used by gaidonors , but thicker ; ot
a forked twig. Tlm latter foi in was bj
far the holiest anil best esteemed. Tlm
twig was alwajs of ha/cl. voiy similar , il
would seem , to those used for the discov
ery of water. It must have often been
diliicult to lind one which fulfilled thu
inexorable conditions laid down by the
caily law giveis in matteis occult Tlm
night before the wand waj returned the
magician went to the Holds in soaich of a
lia'/cl twig which had never budded ,
forked at tlm end , and exactly niiu Icon
and a h.ilf inches in length fiom tlm tip
of the longer folk to tlm junction
with the p.irent stem. When he had
tound it he caiefnlly maikodtlm spotand
letuincd the next morning , shoitly be
fore sunrise , to cut it. The psychological
moment was when the sun hrst peeped
above the hoii/on , and all yiituo dcp.ut-
ed fiom the twig if it weie not cut upon
the instant. The leaves Cnnd small
blanches wore then stiinpud oil with the
ivory-handled knife. While this was
being done ceitaln "grand and tcriible
words1' wci c pronounced in the form of
a prajcr tint the w and might be endowed
with the strength and virtue of the wands
of Jacob , Moses and Joshua. It was es
sential that while the loaves wore being
stripped and the prayoi uttered the face
should be tinned tow.ndj the rising sun.
But the tw ig was as yet b } no means
complete. Tlm practitioner had now to
seek n piece of wood wlubh he cut to ex
actly the same thickness as the two forked
ends nnd leaving the twigs caiefullj at
home , hu took the piece , ' of wood nnd
knife to a smith , who woikcil up the line
steel blade into two foiinles , one for each
tip. It should bo s.iid that the mystic
propcittcs of the km'fo had been in-
cicased by using it to cnl the throat of n
kill a d.ij or two before the finding ot tlm
twig winch had to be severed from the
blade was still stained with the blood
of the "saerihcc. " Takhig homo the two
steel ferrules , for which the small piece
of wood had served -as. 'a pattern , the
adept himself lixcd tbchi to the two forks
of the twig , nnd thenmngnet'ucd thorn
with wai m loadstone , to the end that
the wand might attract to itself mctallif-
eions trcasmcs of all kinds. The veri
table verge foundioyantc , as tlm old
French cabalistic writers termed it , was
then icnay for action.
The prcpaiation and sanctifing of a
nu.gic minor was a much longer but less
complicated process. It occupied forty-
eight drjs : between the ad vent of n now
moon and the full of the following one.
A pieceof steel was polished until it shone
like a mirror , and the sacied names "Je
hovah , Eloim , Mitiaton. Adonai1' were
wiuten nt the four corners of the face
w ith thu blood of a white dove. Then tlm
stool wns wrapped in n piece of line linen
and put carefully away until thcio was a
new moon. The moment the sun had .set
on the given night tlm mil roi-maker went
lo tbo window , and , rcgaiding the moon
and firm imont devoutly , he uttoiod an
appiopnate Latin praver. All this time a
( ireof laurel-wood hud boon binning in
the room. The prajor ended , the piece of
steel wns held tlueo successive times over
tlio smoke , au invocation being repealed
each time The mirror was then bjoathed
upon and a terrible adjuration nddrbSMid
to Annel the angel bj whose ngencj it is
sometimes given to man to see into fu
turity. The coiemony was concluded by
another pr.ior , tollowed by making the
sign of the 01 oss over the person ot the
magician and over tlm mnror. It was
desirable to repeat the crossing of tlm
minor from time to titno dining the suc
ceeding forty-eight days , nnd nt the end
of the sacramental seven weeks Annel tin
pearod in the semblance of a lovely
child. If the "intention" of the operator
wore moro sacred , or his devotion gi eater
than ordinary , Anael sometimes ap
peared at the und of a foitnight. The
angel saluted the owner of the
minor , whom ho commanded his
companions to obey. Tlm adept
was then at liboity to see what he wished
of the future 'ives ' of his clients and of
events destined to convulse the woild
After the lirt.t occasion a very short in-
\ocntion sullieod lo iiiMiro the picbeneo
of Annul , without which the mirror re
mained a meie blank piece of polished
