Britain. Released by North American

The reports next morning were
all that could be wished by those
who desired that this great subject
should be Ventilated in a fair and
even sympathetic manner. Mr.
Keedick, who was delighted at the
result, assured me that a record had
been broken, as for the first time
three out of the five great New
Tork dailies gave the lecture a
whole column on the front page.
The space in these papers, I may
explain, is very carefully subdivided
and corresponds closely to the pub
lic Interest in any subject. The other
papers had also splendid accounts,
though in a less prominent position.
Altogether the press had treated me
with great generosity.
Lest I may seem to have exagger
ated the effect which my message
had produced let me Interpolate a
few short extracts from these
notices since I have no other way to
prove my words. Heywood Broun,
the special representative of the
New York World, said:
"Sir Arthur Conan Doyle made an
extraordinary impression last night
at Carnegie hall in his attempt to
prove the existence of life after
death and the possibility of com
munication with the dead. The ef
fectiveness of his talk depended on
the fact that in spite of the imagina
tion of his writings he seems to be
a downright person. He does not
look like a man who could be easily
stampeded. His audience was pro
foundly attentive. Kvidently it was
a crowd which had its dead."i
Andienre Responsive One.
Another, the Tribune, began its
"With the utmost earnestness, Sir
Arthur Conan Doyle impressed his
belief in spirit communication on a
large audience at Carnegie hall last
night. Scores of women in mourn
ing were present, and tears were
brought to the eyes of many when
Sir Arthur told of his personal com
munication with his son."
Said the Times:
"It was a quiet and solemn audi
ence during part of the time that Sir
Arthur delivered his lecture. Nearly
every seat was taken 10 minutes be
fore he began and lines were stand
ing at the box office windows buy
ing standing room. The audience,
which numbered 3500 people, evi
dently saw a manifestation of the
coming of a newer and finer re
ligion that would clear out most of
the weeds in the old religions and
show tile human race- what God had
written down in his eternal law."
Jt was splendid to have so thor
ough a ventilation of the question.
In this the greatest city of what is
now the greatest nation in the
world. What more in my wildest
dreams could I ask for than this?
I did not want sudden conversions

should shock its subscribers by get

I did want the general idea to get

that nothing could be done with the
world until that reformation came.

A man may stick to his cricket till
he is 50, but a baseballer is old and
stale at 30, in spite of Ty Cobb and
a few examples to the contrary. The
outstanding' advantages are that it
can be played on any fairly level
field, that the outfit costs very little
and that the whole strenuous affair

Life is too serious now for games
that last days on end. It has the
additional merit of forming an ex
cellent spectacle when once the
points are understood, and there are
none of those long, weary intervals
when bowling is short and batsmen
sticky. It would be an admirable
thing if all our association profes
sional teams, trained men in the
pink of condition, engaged good
American coaches, gave themselves
up to the game, and played league

venture to say that if this was done
