A Strange Nervous Disease.
Among the natives of the Philippines,
ccuruing to a correspondent of the
Medical News, New York, "there is
occasionally found a poculiar nervous
disease called mali-mali, the victims of
which seem to be Impelled by an un
controllable Impulse to imitate the
movemonta of any one they sea before
them. Sometimes the disease will lie
dormant while the viotim goes quietly
about bis work, bnt If frlghtoned or
excited in any way lie Will Immediately
begin to Imitate every motion of any
poreon who attracts bis attention. If a
person suffering from this disease be
comes angry he shrieks and raves like
a manias, at the somo tlmo oontlnulng
his mimicking performances. Old
women are the most common victims of
mali-mali, though men are sometimes
attacked. Somo people believe that
the imitation mania, as it Is sometimes
tailed, Is always assumed and that the
pretonded victims can control their
antics If thoy try, as they are often at
tacked tn the preeonoo of Europeans
from whom they hone to obtain alms;
but there Is no doubt that the symp
toms of this disease are gonurally real,

Florence N'lghtlngalo receatly passed
her severtty-olghth blrthdny. This Is
tho cnrrlngo which sho hnd built for her
uso during vho Crlnienu war when
transportation was so bud somo vehicle
became a necessity. It was a very light
four-wheeled vehicle, being composed
of wood battens and basket work, Its
interior lined with water-proof canvas.
A canopy run tho full length, and there
were curtains nt Wio sides, so that It
might be Inclosed at will. Tho sides
were padded, and It was fitted with
patent brakes, so as to allow It to go
gently down tho steep Turkish roads.
All through the campaign sho worked
with well-nigh Incredible courage and

period to the terrible. Crimean fover,

fighting endurance, of tho most cxtremo
and Individual character, that won this
battle. When thns In contact, tho su
periority of the British clghteens over
the American twelves, though less than

were still closed, and from tho Ships'

were thereforo blown off, and tho fight
went on. "A novelty in naval combats
was now presented to ninny witnesses,
but to few admirers," quaintly wroto

"that tho muzzles of our guns touched
