Since occupation is a necessity for all men, it is not to be wondered at that when a man has nothing to do on his arrival in the Spirit world, he gets into mischief just as is the case with us on earth. He must do something and so he amuses himself and, perhaps, if he has been a criminal, he revenges on society the injury he conceives that society did him in his earth life. Accordingly, he gets associated with a band of kindred minds who spend their time in indulging in their favourite vices, whether in the company of spirits in the flesh or spirits disembodied like themselves. They prefer, however, the society of the former because their conversation is more interesting. These are not burdened with the recollection of ill-spent lives but think and talk of the present and this is an interesting subject for those out of the flesh as well as for us. We must not suppose that spirits take no interest in what goes on in our world. They are just as much interested in the events of the day as we are. They read our newspapers, attend our meetings (those who are intellectually advanced enough to take an interest in such things. Those who are not above the enjoyment of their passions will not care to go any more than they would on earth), frequent our places of amusement and, in fact, take part in everything but money-making on their own account, though many do even that if they are desirous of helping a friend in the flesh whom they have wronged during their earth lives. Society in the spirit world is very like ours, excepting that the best men and women and all the children are weeded out.
