Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov'j Report
He Has Osseous Paralysis.
Tampa, Fla., March ' 22. A remarka
ble case of osseous paralysis, one of the
most unusual diseases known to the
medical profession, was brought to the
attention of Drs. Petty and Lawrence
laBt night. ' The victim is Fermen Ma
chado, ho came from Havana only a
few days ago. His feet and .his lower
limbs nearly up to the knees are desti
tute of life, and are insensible to feeling.
The tissues have shrunk until the limbs
are entirely dessicated and have become
as hard as bone. The line of demarca
tion between the healthy tissue an-1 the
and the ossified or portion is clear and
distinct, with an abrupt slope in tbe
size of the leg of about three-quarters of
an inch, the skin on this surface being
affected by an eruption' resembling
tetter or ringworm.
A blow upon Machado's shins or upon i
his feet is not felt by him at all, bnt
gives out a sound as if a solid bone or a
stone had been struck. Of course, the
patent has lost the power of locomotion,
but otherwise his health is good and he
has an exceptionally good appetite. He
is almost constantly thirsty, and drinks
great quantities of ice water daily.
A nurse in attendance upon Macbado,
to test tbe feeling in bis patients limbs,
if any. cut his own initials upon the
back of the right leg just below the calf,
while Machado was asleep.. The man
never stirred daring the operation, and
slept soundly for four hours afterward.
Not the slightest moisture appeared on
tbe blade of the knife, although some of
the incisions were one-eighth of an inch
Dr. Lawrence pronounces the disease
"dry mortification," and says that it is
one of the rarest in medical science, and
has been reported only a very few times
in the surgical journals.
Dr.- Petty thinks that perhaps the
growth of the disease may. be checked if
his patient could, be given scientific
treatment. The disease, first, made its.
appearance about three months ago.
: Case Will Be Reopened.
SanTbancibco, March 22. In United
States district court argument was to
have been commenced on Monday next
in the case of strikers charged with ob
structing mails. Today Attorney .. Mon
teith of defense in presenting a list of in
structions for the jury, raised the point
.that the government had failed to prove
the existence cf the Southern Pacific
Company. The case will now have to
be reopened, and Monteith will make an
effort to have Eugene V. Debs, who will
be In the city next week, placed on the
