GRAVE "DIVINING." A CLERGYMAN'S INVENTION. Among the vislitürs to Bangor Cathedral a few days ago was a clergyman, who inquired of the verger whether there were many interments within the old fane, and he produced a simple looking instrument composed of brass wires, which converged to a potint, and: were held by two handles. Explaining that the instrument woulld indicate the presence of graves, he walked about the Cathedral with it in his handsb and at intervals it made a downward thrust, which, said. the clergyman,, showed there waa a girave beneath. Every time he crossed a gravestone the instrument was in- voluntarily drawn towamds the floor, -as though it were a piece of steel attracted by a magnet, and the same thing occurred at spots where there were no stones indicating graves. The verger was pea-milted to. te.t the instru- ment which in he's hands performed thei same movements. He states that he found it im- possible to prevent the instrument from point- ing downwards. Tested over a cellar the in- strument, which the clergyman .stated was his own invention, remained horizontaC.
