Chataugua, then Lily Dale, NY, and then Hamburg, NY. Publisher: A. Gaston and F.G. Neelin, and then Sunflower Pub. Co. . Editor: W.H. Bach and Evie P. Bach; Frank Walker.
Succeeds: The Cassadagan
1/1 August 20, 1898-1909. 4-16 pp. Fifty cents (then $1.00) a year.

The volume numbering system seems to have been changed or the early issues were un-numbered because vol. 2, no. 144 was issued for January 2, 1904. This was the journal for the Cassadaga Camp meeting and community at Lily Dale, New York, replacing The Cassadagan. The advertisement for the journal in The Free Man, August 1901, says that is "devoted to Progressive Religious and Scientific Thought, Spiritualism, Hypnotism, Astrology, Palmistry, Theosophy, Psychic Science, Higher Criticism." The list varied, with the masthead for 1904 adding "metaphysics" and omitting "Theosophy," but the amalgam that spiritualism had become was clear to all. The history of the camp and its newspapers is given by Bach in his A Hisory of Cassadaga Camp, printed as a premium for the Sunflower in 1899, now available online at http://spirithistory.iapsop.com/history_of_lily_dale.html. NY State Library; SUNY, Fredonia, microfilm; LOC; NSAC, Lily Dale; Skidmore, Lily Dale (1904-1906).
