Black Magic

It has well been said that there are always two poles to

everything in Nature, and continued experience and investigation seems

to substantiate this statement. Whenever we find a force or power

producing beneficial results, we may usually feel assured that the same

force or power, turned in another direction, or possibly reversed in its

action, will produce results of an opposite character. And so it is with

this subje

very glad to pass over this phase of the subject, truth and duty to our

readers compel us to state that White Magic has its opposite pole--that

opposite pole known as Black Magic, or the use of psychic force for

selfish and unworthy ends. There is no use trying to pursue the ostrich

policy regarding these things--it is always better to face them boldly,

and then to take means to avoid the evil contained in them.
