NEW! YORK, Nov. 1. Experiment
are being made with intense light at
the New York Skin and Cancer hospital
to alleviate pain. The physician are
yet unwilling to expres definite opin

but the experiment hare been suffici
ently satisfactory to merit their con
tinuance. The patient is subjected to what i
known as the lucidescent light of the
ordinary electric light of five hundred
candle power focussed byi parabolic re
flectors on two spot. The light is
turned upon the seat of pain for fifteen
or twenty minutes at a time, much care
being taken to prevent any burning of
the patient's flesh. The treatment is
repeated two or three times at inter
vals of three or four hour and in many
instances the pain is reduced or alto
gether stopped for several hours after
wards. The experimenters cannot ex
plain the action of the light but strong
hopes are entertained for it in general
medical practice. Some local dentist
also are using the light with excellent

fervor which characterizes the Salvation
Army will be much heightened by the

H0RSETH3EYES MAKE HAUL.
WALLA WALLA, Wash., Nov. 1-Tbe
largest haul by horse thieves made in
this section in many years was reported
to Sheriff Haviland yesterday by Dan
Hayes, an old resident of this county.
The horses were stolen from a range
known as the Black Snake Hills, which
lie north 'of the city, and the entire
herd, containing 35 or 40 head, were
taken. All the horses except two were
unbranded and unbroken, and on account
of this it will be difficult to locate them.
The last seen of the herd was about
three weeks ago, when the range was
visited by Mr. Hayes and everything
was all right.
Dun Hayes has always kept a bunch
of wild horses, as was the custom of
the country many years ago. He does
not know exactly how many horses were
in the herd, but has been known to have
as many as 100 horses running wild. He
would never sell them, and they were
kept only for his ow n u-e, but many of
them have been known to die of old
age before they were needed. There is

Washington--Lands Are Situated in
Ohio and Described in Will
CHICAGO, Nov. 1. A despatch to the
Tribune from Washington, J), C, says:
To recover some little parcels of real
estate, given by two grateful govern
ment to George Washington about 100
years ago and worth at the present time
hundreds of millions of dollars, arc the
object of proceedings started formally
yesterday by the heirs at law 01" the
father of bis country.
After an undisturbed re-t of nearly a
century in the circuit court of Fairfax
county, Va., the Washington estate has
leen reopened by the appointment of an
administrator for the undistributed as
sets which consist of this almost forgot
ten land which he possessed. The ap
pointment was made upon the' applica
tion of Lawrence Washington and S. W.
Washington, heirs at law of George
Washington. Robert E. Lee, of Fairfax
oounty, was appointed adminisfrator.
He is a grandson of General Kobcrt E.
Lee ami a great grandson of "Light
Horse" Harry Lee, General Washington's
chief of staff.
The land which tbo heirs seek to re
cover is situated in Ohio and is fully de
scribed in Washington's will. It aggre
gate nearly 10,000 acres and includes
practically all the bind on which the
city of Cincinnati is built. Another
tract of the land embraces Point Pleas
ant, the birthplace of General Grant,
while another, at the' mouth of the
Kanawha river, is rich in coal and oil
deposits. Part of the land was granted
to Washington byi the British govern
ment as a reward for his military serv
ices and part of it was granted to him
by the United States later for the same
reason. The heirs who brought the suit
scarcely hope to recover the specific
tracts of land granted to their great an
cestor since by an eivot all the terri
tory embraced in the grants has been,
at one time or another, given to settlers.
But in default of such recovery the
heirs to obtain from Congress a sum of
money equivalent to the value of the
land, whether its value at the time of
the grant to Washington or at the pres
ent time is not known. If Congress
should awaTd the heirs the present value
