Synopsis: Excerpt from Planchette or the Despair of Science

You anticipate that the child born this year will see in his generation our men of science become reverent believers in the supernatural of the Scrip tures. In the facts I here present, you will find some reasons for this Opinion; but you will also learn that there are persons who admit the phe momena, but denounce Spiritualism as a nervous epidemic; based on a gigantic assumption, and propping an ancient superstition, namely, that of individual spirits! So, you see, there will be work still for the Spiritualists, even when the facts are generally accepted, as they are likely to be within the next quarter of a century.

For portions Of this volume, I can claim no other merit than that Of a compilation. Some Of it, however, is compiled from past publications of my own. For what I have adopted from others I have endeavored to give credit, except where the purely narrative form of the matter seemed not to require it, or its source could not be traced.
