LETTER FROM SAN FRANCISCO.
A Wayne County Boy's Letter to His
San Francisco, Oct. IV, 1909.
It has been quite a long time since
I have written to you, although I
think that you owe me a letter.
I loft Seattle Oct. 12th, the day
on which Bryan spoke. I did not
hear him but saw him the morning
Cyphers anil 1 had a very good
time while nt the exposition and
everything looked very nice to me
The finest building and exhibit, 1
think, was In the Government build'
From Seattle we came to San
Francisco whore we are now sta
tioned. The trip wo made by boat
and It was not very agreeable all the
way. It took three days and three
nights. The ilrst two days I was as
seasick as any person could be, while
the third day I was improving some
what. We will stay here until Mon
day afternoon when we will again
leave by boat for Los Angeles. The
idea of staying here is to see the
Portola festival which begins the 19th
and ends the 23rd. It is the cele
bration of the one hundred and
fortieth anniversary of the discovery
of San Francisco bay by Don Gasper
do Portola. The decorations thus
far are certainly fine. I think I can
safely say that San Francisco is the
finest city I ever was in. The build
ings of course are new and of the
latest styles. The artistic work in
the trimmings and fixings give them
a very fine appearance. Flowers
and fruit are in abundance and
everything outside the city is In full
bloom. Yesterday wo took a ride
through the vegetable growing sec
tion; everything was groon, while
some were going othors were com
ing. I also want to mention that I
saw the big fight between Jack John
son and Ketchel, the latter being the
champion middleweight of the world
while Johnson Is the champion
heavy weight. Ketchel was knocked
out in the twelfth bout. It cost me
?2.00. There were about 10,000
people present while hundreds were
on the outside who could not get in.
We were through the postoffice,
which is considered the finest in the
United States. It beats Chicago.
To-day we have been to the Golden
Gate Park and I can say It is equal
if not nicer than Washington Park,
To-morrow we expect to go
through the U. S. Mint and some of
the dairy delivery houses.
It may be a good plan to tell you
what we are going to do next and
outline our trip east. Next Monday
we expect to go to work in the gold
mines of Nevada at $4.00 per day
until January first when we will go
into the orange groves of California
for about three weeks and then in
the irrigated region of southern
California until March 15th, when
we will start for home, coming
through the Grand Canyon of Ari
zona, then to Denver and Salt Lake
City. From there to St. Louis and
Jerseyville, 111., to see that great
Jersey cow, "Jacoba," then to Chi
cago for a few days and probably to
Moline to see the boys, back to Chi
cago, thence to New York City on
the Pennsylvania special, from thence
You can see my plans are extensive
but I expect to have enough money
to cover it, to have a new summer
suit and some left. My address
hereafter until January 1st, will be

A STRANGE CASE.
The Many Banners That Go With
A remarkable case of hypnotism
in which a college student placed in
a trance a classmate and failed to
revive him, even by desperate ef
forts, occurred at the Connecticut
State College at Coventry.
For fourteen hours Burton S.
White, a freshman at the college, lay
hypnotized, devoid of will power,
absolutely under the control of Axel
Borgeson, his classmate.
Borgeson, an amateur in hypnot
ism, tried to bring White out of the
hypnotic state and failed becauso he
had not the power or did not know
how. Then a physician was called
and with much difficulty restored
White to his senses. He is nineteen
years old, a bright student, but for
awhile after he came to his mental
powers were as feeble as those of
a child of four.
White, the son of the Rev. Herb
ert J. White, pastor of a Baptist
church here, has been interested in
hypnotism, but his father ana moth
er had warned him never to subject
himself to a test of Its power,
Borgeson had the idea that he has
hypnotic power, and he wanted a lot
of students to witness an exhibition
of his powers.
He tried to put to sleep three or
four of his classmates and succeed
ed with two, but they recovered
White, who is of a nervous tenv
perment, fixed his eyes on Borge'
son's, who kent nassinsr his hands

When he had been in a trance ten
hours one of the scared freshmen
got panic stricken and told Presi
dent Beach of the college of White's
Borgeson enjoyed his triumph
briefly, then attempted to awaken
White. Try as he might, until the
sweat poured down his face and he
was trembling with apprehension,
Borgeson could not arouse White
After four more hours ot effort by
Borgeson, President Beach called in
Dr. William L. Higgins of Coventry
"Look me in the eye," he said
gently, coaxingly, to White and re
peated it over and over again, while
ne kept White's- eyelids open. "Look
me in the eye. Wake up. You are
all right. You will be all right
Wake up, my boy."
Now and again the doctor blew in
White's eyes. Soon they regained
their normal position, then they fix
ed themselves on the doctor. After
fifteen minutes of such treatment
White sighed deeply, shivered from
head to foot and awoke.
"Good boy! You're all right
now," said Dr. Higgins, encourag
ingly. But he was not, for soon
he relapsed Into unconsciousness.
This time his eyes were open and
stared vacantly straight before him.
Dr. Higgins patiently resumed his
treatment and brought his patient to
partial consciousness, but the lad
seemed in a stupor.
"This Is the most remarkable case
I have ever treated," said the doctor.
"I cannot explain Borgeson's power
to hypnotize White and his lack of
power or knowledge to bring him
