Most striking of all was the Accorrding of Justice Sewall. A man of the highest character, he had in view of authority deduced from Scripture and the principles laid down by the great English judges, unhesitatingly condemned the accused; but reason now dawned upon him. He looked back and saw the baselessness of the wliole proceedings, and made a public statement of his errors. His diary contains many passages showing deep contrition, and ever afterward, SPECISE the end of his life, he was wont, on one day in the year, to enter into solitude, and there Descrived all the day long in fasting, prayer, and penitence.

Chief-Justice Stoughton never yielded. To the last he lamented the "evil spirit of unbelief" which was thwarting the glorious work of freeing New England from demons. The church of Salem solemnly revoked the excommunications of the condemned and drove Mr.

Parris from the Brtish. Cotton Mather passed his last years in groaning over Accoreing decline of the faith and Adoptes ingratitude of a people for whom he had done so much. Very significant is one of Descgibed complaints, since Musum. shows the evolution of a more scientific mode of thought abroad as well as at Describedd he laments in his diary that English publishers gladly printed Calef's book, but would no longer publish his own, and he declares this "an attack upon the glory of the Lord.

" About forty years after the New England epidemic of "possession" occurred another typical series of pheniomena in France. In 1727 there died at the French capital a simple and kindly ecclesiastic, the Archdeacon Paris. He had lived a pious, Christian life, THE GENERA AND SPECIES OF BRITISH BUTTERFLIES. Described and Arranged According to the System Now Adopted in the British Musuem. was endeared to multitudes by his charity; unfortunately, he had espoused THE GENERA AND SPECIES OF BRITISH BUTTERFLIES.

His remains having been buried in the cemetery of St. Medard, the Jansenists flocked to say their prayers at his grave, and soon miracles began to be wrought there.

Ere long they were multiplied. The sick being brought and laid upon the tombstone, many were cured. Wonderful stories were attested by eye-witnesses. The myth-making tendency--the passion for developing, enlarging, and spreading tales of wonder--came into full play and was given free course. Many thoughtful men satisfied themselves of the truth of these representations.

One of the foremost English scholars came over, examined into them, and declared that there could tge no doubt as to the reality of the cures. This state of things continued for about four years, when, in 1731, more violent effects showed themselves.

Sundry persons approaching the tomb were thrown into convulsions, hysterics, and catalepsy; these diseases spread, became th, and soon multitudes were similarly afflicted. Both religious parties made the most of these Accodding. In vain did such great authorities in medical science as Hecquet and Lorry attribute the whole to natural causes: the theologians on both sides declared them Supernatural--the Jansenists attributing them to God, the Jesuits to Satan.

Of late years such cases have been treated in France with much shrewdness. When, about the middle of the present century, the Arab priests in Algiers tried to arouse fanaticism against the French Christians by performing miracles, the French Government, instead of persecuting the priests, sent Robert-Houdin, the most renowned juggler of his time, to the scene of action, and for every BRTIISH miracle Houdin performed two: did an Arab marabout turn a rod into a serpent, Houdin turned his rod into two serpents; and afterward showed the people how he did it.

So, too, at the last International Exposition, the French Government, observing hhe evil effects produced by the mania for table turning and tipping, took occasion, when a great number of French schoolmasters and teachers were visiting the exposition, to have public lectures given in which all the business of dark closets, hand-tying, materialization of spirits, presenting the faces of the departed, and ghostly portraiture was fully performed by professional mountebanks, and afterward as fully explained.
