Charles Greville and the Spirit Medium.

When • tha lat« Charles Greville was very dd he went to see a spiritualistic medium who was attracting fashionable London. The medium looked ;it tho grey, worn old man, and thought himself safe. With much emotion ho cried, "There is an aged lady behind your chair." Greville remarked sweetly. " How interesting." "She is very like you." "Who can it be?" murmured Greville. "She lifts her hands to bless you. Her hands are now resting over your head," shouted the medium, and the pallid, emotionless man said, with a slight tremor m his voice, "Pray tell me who this mysterious visitant may be.' "It is your mother," "Oh," said Greville, "I am delighted to hear that." •' Dear soul !" muttered the imperfcurable one, " She tells me you will join her soon, and be happy with her." Then Greville said gravely, m dulcet tones, " That is extremely likely, for I am going to take tea with her at 5 o'clock." He had led on the poor medium m his usual fashion, and he never hinted at the fact that his mother was nearly a century old.
