THE FASTING GIRL PROBLEM.

Making. She as Htubburnly pmistt in
living without eating md drinking.
When Dr. Tanner mudo his experiment
cltnce was Ktaggercd, but that little
episode was a trille to the feat of Kate
smulney, who is said to have lived thir
teen months without eating, and most
f the time without drinking either. In
;ases of tills kind the usual and much
ihe easiest method of explanation is by
flat denial of the alleged facts and tb s
I facilitated by making sundry import-
in I assumptions, a; that sueh and such
4 thing is opposed to natural laws and
therefore could not b& Thus it is an
txiom of medical se'enco that life cttu
not be sustained beyond a few days
without alimentation, and cert:in'y if
physiology alone is concerned in t!'e
matter the soundness or this view mint
. be admitted. It is true that there are a
fjw well-attested cases in which life
wai sustained without the possibility of
alimcntat'on, the most notable being
that of the Indian fakir who waj wal ed
up in a vault at Lahore, and who two
weeks afterward was disinterred and
found alive! In that case, however,
there wa-i a minimum of waste of vitali
ty, the subject beini in a trance. Kate
bmulscy was not entranced, and din ing
the greater part of her feat her body
was in incessant motion, according to
the reports, so t'int there must have
been an abnormal expenditure of vital
The physicians who attended her dif
fered widely as to the nature of her
complaint, but we believe they agreed
that she really did not cat or drink.
Her parents and friends maintain most
earnestly thit deception In the case was
impossible. This assertion will not pro
vent contrary statements being made,
but when there is a consensus of belief
in certain facts among a numlcr of in
telligent and reputable people, and
when these have taken paim to sub
stantiate their belief and to exclude error,
it is diflicult to regard the usual denial
of the facts as an adequate explanation.
If the laws of physiology were as fully
and minutely understood ns might be
inferred from the dogmatism of men of
science, there would be no exeuso for
the teeming failures of medicine. The
verification of one such case as that of
Kate Sraulsey, however, would neces
sitate the admission of psychologic
hypotheses in such cases, since it is evi
dent that physiology does not furnish
the solution of them.' Considering the
extent to which the study of mental
conditions, and their influence upon
physical processes, Is being carried at
present, moreover, the broadening of
the scope of inquiry here suggested
should not seem either inadmissible or
irrational. In practice, every successful
physician-acts opon this view, and there
can be no sound therapeutics without
recognition of the interaction of mind
In the fasting girl case? the old-fashioned
Alexandrian fashion of severing
the Gordian knot is falling into disfavor,
because it is folt to be an evas'on and
not a determination. In tha cflect the
indications are that some venerable the
ories regarding the conditions of vital
action may have to bo discarded. The
facts appear too stubborn to be dealt
with otherwise than scientifically, in
- short, and when this is realized it is
quite possible that modical science may
hnd itself upon the threshold of new
"and important discoveries. N Y. Trib
une. THE SEXES,
Horn Interfiling Figures Itetatlns;
Almost all the South Tn States have a
nearly equal number of each sex. In
Massachusetts the females between
twenty and fifty years of age exceed
the males about the same age by about
14,000. In seventy-eight cities the ex
cess of females is 148,090. That illiter
acy prevails more among women is duo
probably to the foreign population.
Women contribute less to pauperism,
the proportion being 31,000 to 36,000.
The ration of - prison inmates stands
5,008 women to 64,190 males. Women

excess among the idiotic, blind and deaf
mutes. The proportion ol women wno
engage in occupations outside of the
household is smaller in the United States
than in foreign countries, but in no
country is the proportionate number en
gaged in superior industrial occupations
equal to that in this country. Of the
2, i47,000 women in occupations 695,
000 are engaged in agriculture, most of
them colored women in the Southern
Siatas: 632,000 are in manufactories, of
whom about one-half In New York,
Massachusetts and Pennsylvania; 282,
000 are milliners, etc.; 50.000 are tailors.
Of the forty-four occupations recorded
as "personal service" foriy find wom
en in them. The 525 femiuo surgeons
of 1870 have increased to 2,473; the 7
lawyers to 75; the 65 clergymen to 165.
The numherof laundries have increased
from 61,000 in 1870 to 122,000. and of
the latter 108,000 are kept by women.
This large increase shows a great light
ening of the housewife's labor. Chi

It seems that an officer of the Bengal
cavalry had a remarkable escape during
fighting in Egypt the other day. He
owed his safety to a shirt of ninil which
he was wearing under his uniform. An

nothing could be more intensely inter

count contained in the papers at the
time. Death from this poison docs not
result from increased circulation, but
from its final suspension, from coagu

gave an intelligent and scientilio des
cription of its progress from the extrem

the horrors of death from a snake bite,
and was cured. This is the origin of this

A r'Un for the Transmission of Mll on
the Pneumatic Proeeee.
A plan for the transmission of mails
between Paris and London by the pneu
matic process, devised by a M. Berlin,
is exciting considerable interest. The
following are a few particulars of the
scheme: The pneumatic tubes or sub
way would be laid down alongside tho
existing railways for convenience sake.
The total distance between the two
capitals is 475 kilometres, viz.: Paris to
Calais (rail), 297 kilometres; Calais to
Dover (Channel) 39 kilometres; and
Dover to London (rail), 139 kilometres.
The pneumatic subway would be con
structed of cast-iron pipes of thirty-nine
centimetres in diameter and four metres
in length, connected by means of India
rubber points. This arrangement has
the effect of giving great flexibility and
elasticity to the whole, and of making
it water-tight besides. The carriage
suggested is composed of a wire frame
covered by a sheet of asbestos cloth with
a metallic warp. This covering would
have a kind of metallic bnish coating,
to enable the compressed air to dilate
to a certain extent around the truck
nnd cool the latter, thus counteracting
the heat produced by the friction. A
track would travel the distance between
the two capitals in one hour, and one
could be dispatched every ten minutes.
An engine of from twenty-eight to
thirty horse-power would be sufficient

AN EXTE A0ED1N AST CASE.
An eminent lawyer of the city of New
York, Hon. Jos. It. Flandkiis,' formerly
law-partuerof ex-Vice President Wheeler,
and for several Tears a member of the
N. Y. State Legislature, was called upon
by a Iteporter at his well-appointed olllro
In "1 emnle Court." and Interviewed in re.
Hard to his experience with Compound
Oxygen. "I found him," say the lie
porter, "disposed to engage in convema
tionlregarding his illnetw and his complete
restoration to health." His statement was
subatantlally as follows :
"For many years I suffered from weak
digestion and the dyttpepitia consequent
upon it. Mj neaun since 1 was twenty
one years of age was not at any time vig
orous. Gradually I declined into a state
of physical and nervous prostration, in
bility. In 18T9 I wis alt run down in
HiKvt uvrK wi me cu musi cm imvwn-
strength and sptnts. Energy and ambi
tion had departed.
"So I kept on until the summer of 18Si
Then I went to Thousand Islands, where
I stayed several weeks with friends. But
I found that the atmosphere did not agree
with me. I came away feeling that the
battle of life was nearly ended. 77i next
time I saw my old law-partner Vice Pres
ident Wheeler ht Md me that the Doctor
had said to him that he never expected
again to see me alive. When I arrived at
home In September, it was tn such a state
of exhaustion that I was unable to leave
the bouse except on mild days, and then
only to walk slowly a block or twe.
"Meanwhile my son had learned some
thing about Compound Oxygen, and wrote,
urging me to try it But I had lost all
faith in remedies. 1 had tried many
things, and had ne energy to try any more.
In September, howevei, my soa came w
New York and Dersuaded me to visit Dr.
Turner, who is in charge ot Dr. Starkey
& 1 alen s olllre in Sew York. 1 went,
not because I bad any faith ia this Treat
ment but to gratify my son's kind impor
tunity. When Dr. Turner examined my
case, be thought 1 was so far gone that he
hardly dared to express the faintest hope.
"On the teventh or Uctober 1 com
menced taking Compound Oxygen. To
my great surprise I began to feel better
within a tctelc. In a month I improved
so greatly that I teas able to corns to my
office and do some legal work. I then
came to the ofllce regularly except in bad
weather. On the nineteenth of December
a law matter came into my hands. It was
a complicated case, promising to give much
trouble and to require close attention. I
had no ambition to take it for I had no
confidence in my ability to attend to it I
consented, however, to advise concerning
it and to do a little work. One complica
tion after another arose. I kept working
at it all winter and into the spring. For
three months this case required as con
tinuous thoucht and labor as I had ever
bestowed on any case in all my legal ex
perience. Yet under the constant pres
sure aad anxiety I grew stronger, taking
Compound Oxygen all the time. In the
spring, to my astonishment and that oft
my friends, I was as fit as ever jor nara
"Mu present health tssuch that I can
without hardship or undue exertionattend
to the business of my profession, as of old.
Sly digestion is good, my sleep is as nat
ural and easy as it ever was, and my
appetite is as hearty as I could desire.
"My oonfldence In the restorative power
of Compound Oxygen is complete, as also
it is in the ability and Integrity of Drs.
Starkey & Palcn, otherwise I should not
allow my name to be used in this connec
tion. J have thus freely maae mention of
the hixfnrv of mu case as a dutu I owe of
rendering possible service to some who
may be as greatly in need of physical
recuperation as I was."
