Remarkable Outbreak of SelLs
A remarkable outbreak of relig
ious hallucination occurredatSan Sal
vador, Bahama? Island, this year.
About January last a report was out
that a young girl had seen visions and
was under some influence not belong
ing to this world. Her excitement
soon communicated itself to others,
and in the course of a few weeks
some twenty young girls were
affected. They then organized relig
ious meetingsand much excitement
I went once to see what took place
at these meetings. About fifty peo
ple sat round in a room singing, clap
ping hands, and stamping the feet,
keeping time to a kind of monotonic
chant. The girls who saw visions
were standing in the center, some
times walking up and down. They
had a vacant kind of stare. Gradu
ally the singing quickened, until at
last it became fast and furious. Then
the girls would dance, shout, and
bark like dogs.
After twenty minutes of this they
would fall down with a shriek.
Their struggles, cries, and foaming
at the'mouth were dreadful to see,
and in many cases it took four or
five men to hold them still. After
the fit was over they would lie ex
hausted for about one hour, then,
when they came to, they gave very
detailed accounts of the visions thev
had seen. A great deal of these
visions was, of course, nonsense,
but one thing was remarkable they
spoke of people doing things many
miles away from the place. Upon
inquiry it was found in some cases
that what they had seen corre
sponded exactly'with the events.
One most remarkable feature in
this outbreak was that it was not
connnea to one spot. Almost si
multaneously in every settlement
on the island (the island is forty-five
miles long and twelve broud in
places) similar outbreaks occurred.
Girls living at distances of five or
ten miles from the scene of the
"shouting meetings," as they were
called, would be seized. Being
seized with kind of frenzy, they
would run, as if by inspiration, to
the spot where the rest were assem
bled, no matter how far.
Most of those attacked with the
fits were people who belonged to the
Baptist society. Consequently their
visions were not of the Madonna,
but of the distinctive predestination
doctrines of their sect. Very glow
ing accounts were given of the vari
ous punishments and tortures re
served for the wicked in hell, and
they were most liberal in dispensing
these punishments among their
Up and down the island about 400
or 500 people were seized, and it was
at first thought it was a kind of epi
demic of hysteria. In a few cases
girls of highly- respectable character
were seized, and, although they did
not see visions, yet for weeks they
would have fits daily, and such was
their superhuman strength that I
haveseen a young girl of 16 struggle
out of the grasp of four strong men.
The outbreak lasted from January
to July, and at one time it wm feared
that it would lead to seriotl conse
quences, for all tlie people who -ave
credence to the visions neglected
work and abandoned themselves to
holding meetings day and night for
singing, shouting, barking, and
listening to accounts of the visions
In the daytime, especially on Sun
days, they had processions with
banners. This led to some bad feel
ing, and in a few cases the law had
to be appealed to in the interests of
peace. It was a singular thing that,
although they organized themselves
into a sect, and all who disbelieved
in tbo visions were "heretics," yet
they showed the utmost courtesy
and good-will toward the church,
but toward their own particular de
nomination and the various other
sects they displayed great animosity.
The excitement has died out now,
and they have ceased to exist as a
sect. " P. Baurow Matthews,
Jiector, San Salvador, Nassau Diocete.

"It wasn't three days ago that 1
put three penholders and three blot
ting pads ou this desk, and not one
is to be found now."
It was a post-office official and he
referred to the writing-desk in the
"What becomes of 'em?" asked
"You don't mean to say that we
have people mean enough to steal
a half-penny blotting pad?"
"But E do. I see a dozen cases of

"Who are the thieves?"
"Women, mostly. And when it
isn't a woman it's a business man.
Now, I'm going to stock up the de3k
again, and you hang around here for
awhile and see what you can see."
Three penholders, each supplied
with a new pen, and three fresh pads
of blotting paper were laid out, and
the watcher took his seat on a window-sill.
In about five .minutes a
young man with a brisk air rushed
up to the desk, directed a postal
card, and knocked one of the pen
holders off on the floor as he rushed
off. The second comer was also a
man, and he picked up the pen, di
rected a letter with it, gave a quick
glance around him and pocketed one
of the blotters. The third was
a woman, who put on her glasses,
wrote a postal, and coolly pocketed a
penholder. Then a boy lounged up
and stole another; and between two
business men who used the other
pen the second blotter was
pocketed. This left only one pen
holder and one blotter. After seven
or eight people had used them, a
woman with widow's weeds on di
rected a mourning envelope, stamped
it and rolled the penholder up in the
pad and pocketed both; regardless
of who might be watching. She
