up to tlmt time lililo hul Ixtii hoard. Ho

declared to Ihj insane, und giien "'

the homo Dr. Iliadliy went to Canada,
big old home. where lie gave him If up
entirely to the demand of tin' drug, the
fuw.'iiuitiotis of which completely en
thralled him, I'ructico and h"ino were
gone, und ho guvo frm p in to his vice,
lio returmsj to Chicago and was wilt to
tho insane asylum, wh r" ncomplciiTiiru
was effected, and In- itin.'i his practice,
only to find Iiiiiin If dosortisl by hut
clk'iitH and hi reputation impaired.
Consolation for Itie reverses eainii with
cocaine, to which he again liecamo a
victim, und there weie montlH when ho
absolutely lived in ilio 1 1 .! of mind it
produced. Kcciirie;; it ley hook or crook
until hiit lust po-o,on wan gonound his
funiily beggared.
Tho physician went to the gutter, an I
year ago was is'gging for coeaino ut
drug stores or nrming it by fictitious
orders on druggist. Then he dinp
peared. Ho was occasionally heard from
in Canada rind tho east until last full,
when tho p;iiers recorded his urrcst in
New York city for i-ndonioiiiig to ohlain
supply of cocaine by represent in;; him
Keif as a messenger sent from one phy
sician to unother. In tho Hlico court
tho gaunt, einacialisl, ragged man told
bin Blory of want und woe. und tho
causes which brought them uUiut. At
that time ho was using sixty grains of
cocaine a day. Ho was sent to licllevuu
hospital to di". Hu-re ho was found hy
tho manager of tho Chrmlian homo,
where ho was niUHed hack to mental and
jli VKical vigor.
Dr. Diaillev was reluctant to dwell on
tho cpisod.-s tlm InHly given, hut con
Termed freely uu other circuiunluiict-s of
hi life.
'Until Iff.") there was nothing to dim
my procct8," Kaid Lr, Bradley. "It
wua in that year that cocaine was firt
brought to tn 'I ice through u (iennun
physician, hut it was only known us t
practical aniesihctio in n-rulioii hy
oculists. There him iiomcllnsl known
for tiding it for other piiis.s.-s. I wua
tho Unit man to discover that it could Ut
otherwise used -in fact, total.e tho place
of ether or chloroform. That discovery,
to iuiMi tunt to the world, wan most un
fortunate for me. Win n 1 announced
my discovery physicians laughed und do
clared 1 wan crarv. 1 w rote a letter to
Mayor Harrison uliing him to apxiint u

Talno of my discou-n, which wan the
administration of cocaine hvodciiuic

a cat, xkMnj tissues ami muscles, and
kept the animal on my desk for hours
watching the cii vula; inn, There was n

learned just where, when und how to

Iicvo.1 (lint Ilio pITecta of the drug were
similar to tin we of iiiorphmo. To jtt
provu thin I tried actual cautery hy ap
plying to my lody nil hot iions, hut I
felt no pain, und there wan not the
slightest setiMitioti us the flesh withered
under the heated Irons. For three
months everyday f. a half hour I ex
perimented with the drug, end often
jiusm-d several hours of the night in its
study beforo n mirror, watching its ef.
feet on myself. Hut I never realized
that it was obliiining a mastery over mo.
Iu fascinating Hiwem wero unknown to
the profession. I was thunders! ruck when
I found that tlm drug was absolutely
neceNiry to my mind and body. I ho
lievo 1 could have eoniucred ihe hahit
then were it not for a misunderstanding
with the tium from whom I hiitisj my
home. He wanted hia house, and when
I refused ti) vacate it my weakness was
mndo a point hy which I was drugged
into nn Insane eouit. lVrMt-utioii und
publicity drove iuetoileru(e extivmes.
At tho Wusliiimtonian homo no one
know-how to treat my di.seasi, Every

gutter und it everything,"
"With all your exniicnce with co
caine, how do ) on now regard HI" asked
the reporter.
"I think it is a grand drug, with re
mitfkublo propeitien, und leMiue to take
the pluce of ether und chloroform. It can
be used without danger of death. It
produces no nausea or rostration. It in
a great Svitie for ncrw us disease, for
corluin disease of the spine, for pai-.dysin,
for tetanus, hydrophobia and other con

miles. The I'tiniaiiches never deserved
their great reputation, as they wero pKir
lighter, doing well ngainst tho Mexicans,
but never standing against United States
t ti sips. The Cheyenne were noted far
and wide us the most determined and
fiercest lighters, but their energies wore
nn um constantly directisl against their
hereditary enemies, thelites, than against
the white. The Sioux were the largest
and most m -i liil trilx-, and gave us
more trouble than any others. They
were iu their way us well drilled as the
Kiowas, I myself having seen a single
chief direct the movements of 1,000
warriors, scattered over un extent of
country live miles in diameter, simply by
the Hashing of a little mirror held iu the

were more easily reached, and after one

ened an outbreak.
'The Crows and Tawnees, lieing hated
by nil other trilios, were our allies and
made our best trailer. The Utes, whilo
less daring than the plains Indians, from
their situation in the mountains were
enabled to ambush thotroops very easily,
timl many live have been lost in this
way. 1'igliling withal was rather a run
than a combat, und the troops hud for
many years little chance against them on
account of their great celerity of move
ment. It was not until the winter of
1S70, when (Jen. Nelson A. Miles ls?gan
his scries of winter campaigns, that the
plain Indian were thoroughly subdued.
That ollicer followed their trail in the
coldisit weather, drove them from their
winter camps, and although unable to
overtake them, kept them constantly on
the move. The Indians, sensitive to
cold, and ill provided with clothing, died
Lko sheep of hardship and exposure and
one by one the bands, fairly tired out,
fame in, surrendered and were disarmed
and put on reservation. The winter
campaign more than anything else broke
the jHiwer of the plains tribes, but at
terrible e'stise to the troops, who were
exposed to the fury of the western
storms in the coldest months of the year.
The youngsters iu the army regret the

to test tho child's comprehension of the new

once replied, "Yes." Tuen, quickly correct

Double Nationality.
History supplies a great many cases In
which men have changed their iiatiotialitj
very suddenly iu order lo serve personal
purposes, but no case is recorded, perhuiM,
where one hies changed so often as a cer

This functionary changes his mitiunuhty

An American traveler w ho was riding
on the traiu between Uusle and Ht-lfort re

"Nein, neiii!" said the conductor.

The American asked his question In tin
best German he could muster and receiv

Before long tlie traiu had traversed the

The Power of the Hje In the Dark.
Toward nightfall, as the light grows
scarce and dim, the pupil of the eye in
creases to its greatest size so as to cutcii
and uiisorl) all the rays it possibly can.
Thus a cat's eye will grow large at dusk,
aud those of the night loving owl are so
made as to produce a greater convergence
of the rays of light, so that iu faint light
it can distinguish objects closer. It is us
great a mistake to suppose that cats can
see in the dark, where no light is, as it is
to suppose that under the influence uf pas
sion or excitement man's eyes have the
power of emitting light. It 1 impossible,
as has been proved beynutid a donlit hy
many experiments in utterdarkiiess. True,
a cat's eyes have a wonderful brilliancy,
hut that is due to a "carpet of glittering
libers" called the tapetum.
It may be to some extent iu virtue ot
this glitter that they possess their alleged
power of fascinating small birds and other
creatures, though we certainly need not
suppose that the terror and inability to
move evinced hy the victim are due to the
power of the eye alone. Fear of the un
proaching monster, which instinct tells
them is hostile to their life, is fully ns para
lyzing as any eyeglitter. Chambers' Jour

An Englishman, who once traveled on
foot through Norway, says that ho was
much attracted by tne tameuess of tne

along the roadside. It indicated a kindly

that the licking was mere cuplxmrd love.
All cattle in inland, and esiecially In
mountainous, districts have a strong crav

This discovery was mortifying to my
feelings. Mau wishes to be loved for him

cows seemed to respond to the heart's fond
yearnings. But, ulas! even the cows of

Secrets from the Confessional.
A joiner being ordered to execute some
repairs in a confessional which stood in
the Church of St. Koch, took the oppor
tunity to insert in the woodwork, a micro
phone, which he connected by means of
a couple ot wires with a telephone receiver
placed iu an out of the way corner of the
church, where the man concealed himself
when people weut to confession. Iu this
way be overheard a good ninuy secrets,
which he turned to account by extorting
hush money from the poor penitents. Tbe
priest was at first suspected of having be
trayed the secrets of tbe confessional, but
after awhile the truth came out and tbe
culprit was apprehended aud tent to jail.
