An unexpected incident took place

at a spiritualistic seance at Providence, R. 1., recently. A party of ladies and gentlemen made arrangements with a medium to give them a private seance. The agent collected the customary fee, one of the visitors, giving a five dollar bill and receiving the change. The fees were passed into the cabinet 1 by the agent, and the seance began. Materialised forms of departed brothers, sisters, and friends issued from the cabinet at the request of the visitors. Presently a departed sister of Mr S., with a bouquet in her hand, issued and presented him with the flowers He no ticed a piece of green paper among the flowers, and quickly transferred it to his vest pocket. The visitors retired, and Mr S. then found the green paper to be the identical five dollar bill which he had given to the agent. On their arrival home the medium telegraphed a demand for the five dollars. The person who received the bill holds that jt belongs to him, as the spirit of his sister gave it to him, and he refuses to return it.
