MANCHESTER. At the Primitive Methodist school-room, Moss- side, on Tuesday evening, February 26th, Mr E. P. Jones gave some interesting and novel experi mekta in thought-reading. He stated, during his address at the commencement of the proceedings, that the word" thought-reading," as applied by Mr Irving Bishop and others, was a misnomer, it being impossible for any one to read another per- son's thoughts, and that thought-reading" was divided into two classes, the mental and the physical, the former of which was not yet fully discovered, and he would that evening deal with tee physical. The experiments comprised End- ing of a pin, following of a chalk line blindfolded, tra .ing an aiticle passed through the hands of three persons, finding of a pin hidden one mile away lrom the school-room, telling the number of a bank note,discovering a pain (real or imaginary in a parson, &c., all of which were succeasfully performed with the exception of the bank note, in this case four of the live figures we: e given I correctly, and the "thinker" admitted that he t himself had become coniused in attempting to concentrato his mind solely upon the figures, Tho fourth experiment wus certainly the most niBrveilous, the pin being found by Mr Jones hidden in a piece of meat on a butcher's counter about 200 yards away from tho schoolroom, that dhtance having beeu I selected on account of the viino it would have occupied in waking a rmIe. The performer, however, statsd that if the reason given was not sufficient, he would, at tne conclusion cf the meeting, give the experiment, as announced on the programme. This, however, was not desired, as it was evideut to almcat every one present that the distance had no material etfect upon the .success of the experiment. A vote of thanks to Air Jones for his presence that evening concluded the enter- tainment. tainment.
