Peter Cooper on Interest.
' Peter Cooper was always a careful
and prudent business man. He was al
ways opposed to the methods, of miiny
merchants, who launched out in extrav
agant enterprises on borrowetl money
for which they r.aid exorbitant rates of
interest. Once while talking about a
project with an acquaintance the latter
said he would have to boirow the money
for eiz mouths, paying interest at the
rate of 0 per cent "Why do yon bor
row for bo short a timer" Mr. Cooper
asked. "Because the brokers will not
negotiate bills for longer." "Well, if
you wish," said Mr. Cooper, "I will
discount your note at that rate fur three
years." "Are yon in earnest's'.' aaked
the would lie borrower.. V Certainly 1
am. 1 will discount yonr-note for $10,
000 for three years at that rate. Will
yon do it?" "Of course I will," said
the merchant, "very well, said Mr.
Cooper, "jnst sign this note for 19,
000, payable in three years, and give me
your check for fSOO.' and the transac
tion is complete. " "But where is the
money lor me?" asked the astonished
merchant. "Yon don't get any money,"
was the reply. "Your interest for 80
months at 3 percent per month amounts
to 10f) per cent, or $10,800. Therefore
your check for 800 jnst makes ns even. ' '
The force of this practical lllastrauoii
of the folly of raving Rtich an exorbi
tant price for the use of money was
such that the merchant determined nev
er to borrow at such ruinous rates, and
he frequently nsed to say that nothing
could bave so fully convinced him as
this rather humorous proposal by Mr.
Cooper. New York Post, i r

Can Hypnotic Subjects Be In
duced to Commit Crime?
SOME IMPORTANT EXPERIMENTS.
Kvldene That Persons of I'prtght Tendon
. elea Will Kl Commit Crimes Under
Ilypnotte Suggestion Th Proposition
to Ilynnptis Jlra. Maybrlck.
According to Professor Lorubroao, the
greut Italian authority on hypnotism and
criiniuolngy, the proposition to establish
the innocence of Airs. Alaybriok by hypno
tism is not likely to have any very satis
factory result, even though the British
borne secretary should consent to the ex
periment. After citing several cases in hi
own practice Professor Lombroso says:
"While my experiments prove that hyp
notio treatment of criminals for the pur
pose of eliciting confessions is useless and
often dangerous, it may nerve tht cause of
justice in some cases to subject it to a per
son protesting her innocence and against
whom uo direct proofs bave been obtained.
Such a person, If not shamming, would re
iterate her statement of Innocence and per
haps divulge some secrets, liable to aid in
the establishment of the truth, which here
tofore were wit hlield for reasons of delicacy
or to shield friends.
"Everybody knows it is impossible to
hypnot ize an unwilling person; neither can
a person be prevailed upon to commit ac
tions opposed to bis interests or to self in
crimination while under the spell of hyp
notism. With the professional and born
criminal the habit of lying is so strong as
to assert itself under all physical or mental
In this connection the subject of criminal
suggestion is interesting. It is a question
which has provoked much discussion
among students of the science of hypno
tism and one on which great difference of
opinion exists. Dr. Toitrette of fans tried
au experiment on a patient of morose and
surly disposition. Under hypnotic sugges
tion the suliject committed what he be
Mia. FLORENCE MATB8ICK,
lieved to be a murder, and when awakened
and told of bis crime proceeded most in
geniously tc justify himself without ex
pressing any remorse.
Dr. Montpallier of Fans, In trying a
somewhat similar experiment, met with a
different result. His subject was a woman
of a gentle nature. After she had been pnt
to sleep the doctor told her that there were
some people present who annoyed mm.
'Oh, nonsense," was the reply. The doctor
insisted that they did, and -pointing out a
Mr. D. told the patient tbat she must poison
him. "I will not," was the firm reply.
"But you must I will it," said the doctor.
"Here Is the glass with the poison. You
must nfake him take it."
The patier, after a severe struggle with
herself, finally took the glass, and going np
to Mr. I), said, ' xou must drink, this," al
most forcing it down his throat. When
awakened and told what she had done, she
was overcome by the horror of her imagi
nary crime, and rushing up to Mr. D. ex
claimed, with piteous sincerity: "Ob, sir,
quick. take an antidote. If you die, do for
give me before you die."
Here it is demonstrated that, though un
der strong pressure a hypnotic subject may
be induced to commit a crime, instantly on
awakening he will proclaim it and in every
way seek to undo the evil done. Liiegeasis
of Nancy, touching the subject of criminal
suggestion, says it is not the question
whether hypnotic suggestion renders, the
prosecution of crime more difficult, but
whether it really can be employed to com
mit crimes or cause them to be committed.
Dr. Ladame replies to this that the ques
tion can only be solved in the affirmative
sense. "1 be proof ban been experimentally
made, and If the experiments have not ac
quired an absolue value it is because they
bave not as yet been conducted by honest
men." This is a fair summary of the opin
ion of those who believe tbat hypnotism
can be used as an agent of crime.
On the other band, it would seem tbat the
majority of experts are of a totally differ
ent opinion. Nobody stood higher in the
esteem of his profession than did the late
Professor Charcot. He was very emphatic
in his opinion tbat criminal suggestion was
nothing but a "senseless bogy man, made
use of by perhaps well meaning but woe
fully ignorant students of hypnotism."
Dr. Tourette scoffs at the Idea that any
one bas been able to make a criminal.
Though he has made many experiments, be
flatly refuses to regard them of any practi
cal value and refers to them simply as
'laboratory Crimea," "Let them produce
one authentic case, the proof of a real as
sassination committed nnder suggestion,"
says Dr. Tourette, "and our Opinion will be
shaken, although we sbould not even tben
be convinced," - , . , . - .
Donate confesses to having induced sleep
in some 80,000 Individuals, but not one of
them could be. influenced against bis will.
De Courmelles most emphatically rejects
the theory of criminal suggestion. He says
the snggestion may be repeated, bnt it is
absolutely powerless to transform, as has
been asserted, a criminal into an bonest
man, or vice versa.
The dominant will power of man cannot
be directed into foreign channels except
with his sanction. The existence of a dis
criminating sense of right and wrong, even
in the most general acceptance of the term,
sufficient guarantee as to the responsi
bility of a crime committed. Our will fluc
tuates, so to speak, and we are all of ns
fully conscious of existing flaws in our
makeup. Still we are cognizant that for
the preservation of law and order it is im-
peratiye tbat we check any tendency to
orime to which our dispositions might
lead. Nobody is Irresponsible. If it can be
proved that crime has been committed

AROUSED HIS SUSPICIONS,
Why a German lliirheeper and Ills Irlsti
Container Are Rirangers Row.
There la a certain German barkeeper up
town who is nursing vigorous wrath Mid
a particular knotty blackthorn, because of
nu unknown person with an Irish accent
and au engaging address.
One night the stranger stepped np to the
bar and aked for n quart of gin in a black
bottle which he placed on the bar. The
barkeeper filled the bottle, and the man
walked toward the door,
"Here!" yelled I lie barkeeper. "Xou give
lie no moneys for dot' chin!"
"Ah, murk It down on the slate, will
''Whe(TiioHht; you give me lok dot

"Not a cent, not a cent: take buck your
tuff If you won't hang it up."
So I he man handed hack the bottle to the
barkeeper, who poured the contents of the
bottle into (lie cask.
A week later, almost, at the same hour,
the door blew In again, "Hey, Dutch, give
us a quart o' gin, will yerf" The unsus
pecting burkeci er poured the liquor Into
the bottle, handed It over the bar and, as
before, the man took the bottle and started
"Here, you, give me my moneys or my,
chin. What you do, lieyf Film Hem mef
Give me dot chin!"
"Ah, mark It down on the slate."
"We don't kip noalet give me dot chin!"
"Ul right. Take your donuuud old gin
and lie cussed wid yer!"
The bottle was handed back across the
bar, and the man agniu disappeared into
the night. Agnin the liquor trickled down
Into the cask.
Four mora times, on as many nights, the
same Incident was eiincled. Then the bar
keeper became suspicions.
"Dot nmu buys him no chin," he solilo
quised, "but alretty he come him beck six
time. I find out dings." A week later the
man appeared again, with:
"Hey, Dutchy, till this 111 a hurry, will
"Haf you got any moneys dls time, hey f"
Let us look at some of dot money, hetur"
The man showed n neat roll of bills, and
the barkeeper filled the bottle aud handed
It across the bar.
"Say, Dutchy, Juat mark that ou the

"Here, you, yuat give me Iwck derchlnl
