A French Doctor Intents a, Machine for the Career
Dr. Hamilton, of New York, just back
from Paris, thinks after an examination ot
the Brown-Sequird elixir that it is a hum
bug, and dangerous to the system. He nas
brought with him a medicine to cure nerv
ous diseases and sleeplessness.
Erxciix Tixca x to tiik Disrncn.1
New Yoke, August 20. Dr. Allen Mc
Lane Hamilton, who has just returned
from abroad, was at his home, 20 East
Twenty-ninth street to-day. Ho talked
very freely with a reporter abont the Brown
Sequard elixir of life.
"It is one of the sensations of the day in
Paris," he said; "in fact, it is the chief sen
sation. At the time I left there only two
men had taken the injection the Doctor
and one other. If it had not been the work
of a man of standing I should not have con
sidered the matter at all; I should have put
it down as arrant humbutj. But I investi
gated the matter sufficiently, and I am snre
the attempt to renew a man's youth in that
way is absurd. I hare not made any ex
periments, and I do not intend to make any.
The theory is opposed to all the laws of
physiology and chemistry. Farther than
that. I believe it is a very dangerous pro
ceeding, and that it is time tor reputable
physicians to express their disapproval of
WHEREIN IT IS DANGEROUS.
"In what way is it dangerous?" the re
"There is great danger of introducing a
virulent poison into the system. It is well
known that the putrefaction el albumen
produces some of the most deadly poisons.
It is quite possible that this substance, in
jected into the veins, should act there as the
arrow poison does which is used by the
South American Indians. 'When the elixir
is stirilized by heat or the admixture of
substances to prevent decay, it is quite cer
tain that the elixir must be so changed as to
lose any beneficial element it may have
had when fresh. But I do not believe
it has any beneficial element when
(resh. When skillfully prepared and in
jected before decay sets In it would have do
more effect than water wonld. .But there is
always danger. It is hard to tell when the
moment has passed at which the harmless
substance becomes dangerous. The juices
of a newly dead body, as undertakers and
medical students know, are much more
dangerous when absorbed through a wound
than those of a body tbathas been preserved
some time. Dr. Brown-Sequard's injections
were all very painful. I believe that many
cases of erysipelas have followed these
ITS ACTIOS' ON THX SYSTEM.
"On the theory that it might hare the
effect claimed for it, how could the substance
act on the system?"
"It could not act Those who have tried
it offer no explanation of the resnlt ob
tained. They say practically that a vital
fluid has been given the patient. It is a re
turn to the medical systems of the middle
ages. It affects some through mental ex
hilaration. Its hold on the pnblic is due
to a love of the mysterious It is not a new
idea. Mention of its use was made three
centuries ago. Although Dr. Brown-Se-quard
is well advanced in years, I believe
that antedates his time.'
"Have you been requested to prepare the
fluid foranyofypur patients?"
"A gentleman came to me with such a
request the other day. I refused his re
quest, but if. under any extraordinary
condition of affairs, I should be persuaded
by a patient to try it, I should inject the
fluid with the same confidence that I should
inject water. People do live longer now
than they did formerly, but lengthened life
is due solely to the advance of sanitary
science to the care which people take of
As an offiet to the Brown-Sequard elixir
there is a device lor the treatment of ner
vous diseases which Dr. Hamilton brought
from Paris with kirn, and which, he says, is
well worth consideration. It is the inven
tion ot Dr. Luis, of Paris. It is a simple
affair. There is a little cherry box about
five inches square, above which project two
shafts, one within the other, sleeve and arm
fashion. On each shaft is balanced a black
bar, nine inches long, an inch wide, and a
quarter-inch thick, edge up. By clockwork
in the box these ebony arms or bars aro
made to revolve in opposite directions. Six
little round mirrors are pliced on each side
of each bar.
The patient is placed in a chair in a dark
room, facing the machine. An electric
light, or any bright light, is concentrated
on the back arms of the machine by a con
vex mirror placed behind the patient, and
the arms are set awhirling. The patent
watches them whirl. The motion and
flashing lights operate on the nerves through
Dr. Hamilton said he had seen patients
put to sleep by this means, and some ex
traordinary cures accomplished. The ex
planation of the effect of the whirling arms
and flashing lights is that they change the
habit of the brain. The effect 'is analogous
to that produced by soft mnsle on a nervous
or irritated man, but the rhythm of regu
larly flashing lights has a more powerful
eflect upon the brain than the rhythm of

Lightning; and Rata Do a Great Deal of
Damage to Property.
St. Paul, August 20. The storm which
prevailed in this city last night and this
morning was one of the most severe ever ex
perienced here. It was worst at about 2:30
A. M., when it amounted almost to a hurri
cane. Two inches of water fell between the
hours of 2 and fi o'clock, and the lightning
furnished a constant and vivid illumination.
The storm was very general throughout this
section, in some places doing considerable
damage. An accident, caused by an over
flowed track, causedjmuch delay to people re
siding between the two cities, several hours
being taken to clear the track. All was
soon in good working order, however. At
Stillwater the lightning killed three horses
belonging to Hon. John Taftand the houses
of Messrs. Lohman and Smitbson were
struck and considerable damage done. The
'streets were also badly washed out
At Eau Claire, Wis., lightning struck the
large agricultural building on the grounds
of the Northwestern Fair Association, de
stroying the building, together with several
thousand bushels of irrain and a lot of ma
chinery. The loss is $6,000; partially in
sured. Several houses in that vicinity were
struck and badly damaged. At Duluth the
total damage was $80,000, as given in a dis
patch from that city already sent Greater
losses are feared, as the storm waf very se
vere and general.

The Indianapolis Man Succumbs After ft
Fast of 67 Daya Fartlculnra of HI
Long Abstinence From Food
Very Kemarkablo Case.
Indianapolis, August 20. Eobert
Marvel, who has fasted 67 days, died this
morning at 7 o'clock. His case is so extra
ordinary that it has attracted the attention,
not only of the curious public, but of the
medical fraternity far and near. He was
85 years old. On June 13, Mr. Marvel ate
his last square meal. For 36 dayrhe took
absolutely nothing into his stomach. On
the 38th he bit off a piece of pie, but did not
eat it On the 39th day he drank a small
quantity of milkand at irregular periods
he has continued to do so. All told, he has
drunk not to exceed one gallon of milk in
the 67 days that have elapsed since he began
The effect of this abstinence is such as
would be expected. The faster has reduced
himself to a "living shadow." The case is
so far beyond the ordinary that incredulity
has been excited. But there is no occasion
for this, as Dr. George Hasty, a well-known
physician or this city, Has reguiany at
tended him. The great difficulty in treat
ing him has been his determination to re
sist all prorerred aid. After fasting a full
month, he one day arose from his bed, and,
seizing a pan of water that stood near, drank
some of it off. After that, milk and water
were left near him and occasionally he
would rise and drink a little. During the
last week, Marvel has been bedfast except
at times when he would spring up and
wander about the house and porch. Sores
came upon him by reason of his long con
finement, and evidently Marvel has not only
suffered long but severely, though every
thing possible was done to relieve him.
His "fast is the longest on record, so far as
known. The most prominent case of volun
tary fasting was Tanner's. It will be re
called that he ate nothing and drank only
water during 40 days. Marvel lived with
his relatives in Pik'e township, seven miles
from the city His trouble began with
apoplexy and paralysis. Marvel was born
in Sussex county, Dei., October 7, 1805.
When voung he was a sailor for seven
years. "He came West in 1833. He lived
in his later years with his widowed daugh
ter, Mrs. Jones.

A Meeting of the Finance Committee to
Make Arrangement for the World's
Fair A Number of Men of Wraith
Will Take a Hand.
New Yobk, August 20. Eighteen of the
25 financiers selected by Mayor Grant to
constitute the Finance Committee of the
projected World's Fair of 1892, were pres
ent this afternoon at the initial meeting of
the committee in the Mayor's office. Many
millions of money were represented in the
gathering and the unanimity of feeling was
The following is a list of the members of
the committee who attended, many of them
having come from their country homes to
attend the meeting: Jay Gould, Jesse
Seligman, Eugene Kelly, August Belmont,
Samuel D. Babcock, Calvin S. Brice, Will
iam L. Bull, John H. lnman, Robert Dun
lap, Mr. Bockefelier, J. Edward Simmons,
President of the Fourth National Bank;
Charles Stewart Smith, President of the
Chamber of Commerce; Oswald Ottendorfer,
editor of the Statts Zeitung; Frederick A.
Kurscheidt, John McKesson, Jr.; Henry B.
Hyde, Herman Oelrichs and William
Stein way. The proceedings were opened
by the Mayor, who in a brief address ex
pressed his thanks for the snpport and en
couragement given to the object in view by
the attendance he witnessed.
It was next proposed that the committee
organize by the selection of a permanent
Chairman, and Mr. August Belmont at once
offered the name of Samuel V. Babcock.
His election followed by a unanimous vote.
The next business was the selection of a
Treasurer, and J. Edward Simmons, who
served in that capacity on the Johnstown
Belief Committee, was chosen by acclama
tion. Upon Mr. Steinway's motion it was
voted that each of the 26 members of the
committee subscribe $100 fo meet immediate
expenses, and immediately afterward the
committee heartily cheered the announce
ment by Chairman Babcock that he held in
his hand a check for $10,000 donated by the
New York Sun.
BUNKING WILD IN THE WOODS.
A Lost Job Cansca a Prominent Contractor
to Become Insane
Toledo, August 20. Three weeks ago
Adam Bemmert, a well-known building
contractor, disappeared in a mysterious
manner. Some months since Bemmert was
awarded the contract for building two new
school buildings in this city, but he took
tho job too cheaply, and finding that he
would lose money he left the city. A most
diligent search was made for him, bv his
family and friends, but without avail, and
he was given up as either dead or having
fled to avoid the disgrace of a business fail
ure. The mystery was solved this morning. As
a hunter was passing through the woods
near. Grassy Point three miles below the
city, he discovered a man half nude, with
what clothes he had on in tatters. He called
to him and discovered, to his great surprise,
that it was Bemmert, whom he knew well.
The unfortunate man, hearing his name
called, turned and ran like a deer through
the woods, uttering insane imprecations as
he ran. The matter was reported to the
Chief of Police, who detailed a squad of
officers to search for him. The hunt is now
in process. Mrs. Bemmert is almost dis
tracted at the fate of her husband.
ETADING THE IMMIGRATION LAWS.
A New Scheme Which Does Not Come Un
der tho Preaent Statutes.
Washington, August 20. When the
cattle steamer Missouri (Captain Murrell's
ship) arrived at Philadelphia recently, the
attention of the Emigration Commissioners
was called to the case of three cattle men
who had been permitted to land and had
disappeared. The commissioners feared
that these men might be undesirable immi
grants, bnt when they sought to fasten the
responsibility upon the captain of the ves
sel, he showed that the men had signed the
ship's articles as sailors, and were, there
fore, entitled to land.
As such a practice promised to make a
precedent which might resnlt in a whole
sale evasion of the laws relating to the im
migration of contract laborers the case was
laid before the Secretary of the Treasury,
who has been obliged to confine himself to
an earnest request to the proper officers to
use every effort to ascertain the true charac
ter of these cattle men before allowing them
ALWAYS A FRIEND
The Delicious Summer Medietas
A Fickle Maiden Promise to Marry Two
Men 'and They Have a Crying; Match
for Hor Hand Tho Winner
Get a Farm Also.
Paeis, Ky., August 20. The little ciiy
of Winchester, Clark county, has been- con
siderably excited for the past week over the
announcement of the marriage of Miss
Nannie Petticord, which was to take place
to-morrow. She is a tall, handsome lady
of about 20, and during a visit to Missouri,
last summer, won the affections of a Mr. G.
A. Goodman of Hamilton, thjt State.
After her return home, she and the above
named gentleman kept up a correspondence,
and their affection for each other grew
into love, and from love into a mar
riage engagement Tickets were issued,
stating that their marriage would take
place at the residence of the bride in
Winchester, on Tuesday, August 20, and
one of these cards was sent to Mr.
Thomas Jackson, who was also a suitor
for the heart and hand of Miss Petticord.
On receiving the announcement, he at once
sought an interview with the lady, and, be
tween sobbings and tears, told her how he
loved her, and that if he was not successful,
the shock would kill him. This softened
the heart of the young lady, and she then
and there consented to hold on to her first
love and canceled her engagement with the
Missonrian. She wrote him that her mind
had been changed, and that she now loved
another. Goodman, on receiving the an
nouncement of her change of mind, imme
diately took the train for Kentucky, and
arrived in Winchester a week ago. He,
too, sought an interview with Miss Petti
cord, and with the same persuasion (crying),
she promised to be his wife.
Thinking he had everything bis own way,
Goodman went to his hotel, but Mr. Jackson
then called and made another most affecting
appeal, and her mind was again changed.
This was kept up for a week, first one and
then the other being the victor, and the
fathers of the two young men each offered
his son a farm if he should be successful.
Pools were sold on the result and nothing
else was talked of in Winchester.
On Friday evening Mr. Goodman had an
engagement to call, but, while he was at
supper, Mr. Jackson procured a marriage
certificate and a minister, and when Mr.
Goodman arrived at the house they were
man and wife.
Paris experienced a similar wedding to
this several years ago. A yonng lady, the
daughter of a minister, was engaged to four
wealthy gentlemen of this county, and they
all knew of her engagement to each of
them. They were all to appear at her resi
dence on the day set for'the wedding, and,
as she loved one as much as she did the
others, their names were to be placed in a
hat and drawn out, and the one that came
out first was to get her. On the day set
each man was there in a wedding suit, and
the drawing began. The first name was
that of Frank Hibler, now deceased, and
the wedding was about to take place, when
one of the suitors, shocked by his disappoint
ment, fainted, and, after he had fully re
covered, the lady married him in prefer
ence to the one that was drawn. The suc
cessful man is now the President of a col
lege on the Louisville and Nashville Bail
road, not many miles from Louisville, and
