SEANCE SCENE.
A Spiritualistic seance, following a birthday party at Plaisance, outside Paris, developed into tragi-comedy.

A member of the party having mentioned that he knew of a wonderful "fluence," he was asked to perform some experiment's.

A grain merchant named Louis Due came forward; and, after a series of "passes," the hypnotiser declared that he had put M. Due into a state of complete insensibility. To prove this he gave the man a severe blow on his cheek.

Due, who theoretically ought not have felt any pain, jumped to his feet and upbraided the ypnotiser and his friends, who were amused at the incident.

Becoming furious. Due rushed out, and presently returned with a revolver. He fired four shots. The hypnotiser, fell with a bullet in the stomach, and he is not expected to recover. A woman and her husband were also seriously injured.

Due has been placed under arrest.
