to the purification of water. His clothing
consists of a blanket thrown over his

wh'ch . 5 find it attracting, the attention of,
the eiecorors of the j-jj

some time past ; and which should, and doubt
less will, receive the condemnation of all think

produced on the minds of some who visit the
rappers. Not a few have lost their reason .by
witnessing their tricks, and under Ihe excite
