'it the Poat-Qraduate Medical School
ot Now York a tew days ago a well
known professor ofnervousand mental
diseases, who testified as an expert in
a murder trial, delivered a lecture on
insanity in itsrelatton to homicide.
The various types of insanity, said
he, all breed homicides, but some more
than others. His classification of the
various forms of insanity, says the Sun
of that city, was as follows, and any
phase of mental disorder, he said,
would be found to fit under one head
or the other: Mania, melancholia, de
mentia, oaranoia. and paresis.-
The victims of melancholia are most
subject to homicide or suicidal out.
Waks. Paretics are least to be feared.
Melancholia is often the result of
borne bodily ailment, or disappointed
ambition may cause mis morum ouu
ilangerous state of mind.
insane homicidal outbreaks dould
r.it. occur in nerfectly healthy persons.
Uhey might bo apparently sane, and
lie suddenly seized with an irresistible
i npulse to kill some one or to commit
taicide, but there must be ground
work of melancholia or some other
unhealthy mental state to incite the
"Doctors now declare," the professor
i mtinued, "that there is no such thing
'emotional insanity. 1 believe tne--irdwea
not used at all during the
f':tzgerald trial, and 1 doubt if any ex
pert would take the stand and testify
that such a condition as emotional in
sanity ever exists."
"Paranoia" is a word ol such wide
application that it may be' worn out tn
the endeavor to make it cover the thou
sand and one varieties of mild and ex
plosive cranks.- ,.,
"Paranoia is a very good word to
use," said the professor to the young
doctors, "as it enables you to classify
your cranky acquaintances. Mono
mania is the older name for the same
peculiarities. 'The condition often
manifest itself by a fear of going to
tome particular place, by dread of
crossing a street, or similar eccentrici
ties. The subject is usually possessed
-of a single delusion; perhaps has an ex
asperated idea of his own greatness, or
is b.oont to convulse the world by a
worderful invention. There is fre
quently, too, some physical peculiarity
as a bad-shaped head or peculiarly
shaped ears ordeformlty of the jaws."
1 lie professor grouped the paranoiacs
together under several heads paranoia
religiosa, the crank who talks and
thinks of nothing but religion; par
anoia inventoria, the victim of which is
fuil of foolish schemes, a crank of the
Oil. Sellers type; paranoia litigosa, or
llti"iouB paranoiacs, who are forever
br. :ging suits in the courts, frequently
for the most trivial causes.
"Cranks of this kind," said the pro
fessor, "are, I believe, more numerous
in Europe than in the United States, -though
the west produces a good many
In one notable instance a whole county
was engaged in a fight over a turkey in
which a few dollars were at stake.
"Cnder the head of paranoia re-for-aatoria
come a more obnoxious
class of monomaniacs political offend
ers, anarchists, and 'bomb throwers,
who are convinced that only by the
mu'der of a few crowned heads,
princes, presidents, senators and.mil
lioi liresand the destruction of prop
en; can the existing state of affairs be
chajfred for the better."
ii .ilteau the professor mentioned as
ODu of the extraordinary cases of
homicidal paranoia. Prendergast, the
rmrrforer of Mayor Harrison, was an
i rom "maam" all types of insanity

generally happy, careless frame of
miid characterize thiaphase of lunacy,
though the mental state of the victims

Eoraicidal and suicidal outbursts are
Paretics are generally harmless.
'"Paresis is a production of modern
civilization," said the professor. "1
don't know of a, happier lot of people
thai, are the paretics for a time. Their
Imagination is exceedingly vivid. They
have boundless wealth, in their own
minds, or have a remarkable invention
which they are about to give the world.
Thiii blissful state of things continues
tor awhile, then the patient becomes
pathetic, rarely dangerous."
E'gnrding the responsibility of the
Insane, the professor believed that par
anoiacs should be punished or their
cruxes, The anarchist .monomaniacs
of the Gniteau stripe are very unpleas
ant people to have about, and he
tninks a few of them should be hanged,
the others locked up or exiled.
"I hope some time," said he, "to see
tliem all corralled and transported to
a distant sea island, where they can
communicate with the rest of the world
but once a year. They should have no
r::in or tobacco. They should be fed
on fruits and vegetables, and they
shoi.ld not be allowed to breed, and
than be gradually exterminated. This
colonization of paranoiacs may be, a
scheme of the future."
A Queer Lowiait.
The question: Is a man the owner of
his own teeth? lately come before a
German court at Uera. A man who had
been suffering for some time from
tootliache made up his mind to have
the tooth taken out. The stump proved
a difficult one to draw, and when it
was out it was of such curious shape
that the dentist declared he would
Iceep it as a curiosity. His patient,
however, thought he would like to
iieep it himself, and claimed it; but
tho dentist, on the ground that a tooth,
when drawn with the free consent of a
j-utient, is ownerless property as soon
s it tcaves the jaw, refused to give it

EDUCATED IN AMERICA.
A wondtrftally Tnfellljrmt Horse Now As-'
toMlfthktg- Um) London Public.
It cannot be said of the horse, as
Heine said of the monkey, that It does
not talk for fear of being put to work.
Probably the ultimate degree to which
the training of animals may be curried
is reached in the case of the talking
horse that literally made its bow to the
public recently at the Crystal palace,
says the London Dally News. Mazeppa
is an Arab, educated, so to say, in
America, and its extraordinary capaci
ty for learning was manifested before
an astonished and enthusiastic audi
ence. In the strict meaning of the
word the horse does not talk, but 1b
capable of answering questions ad
dressed to it. Jt even understands
French or German when It hears it
spoken, though it does not speak these
languages, in which it is not less ac
complished than some human beings.
The animal not only appears to think,
but is capable of expressing Itself in
telligibly by signs. It has a special
talent for arithmetic. .
, The audience was invited promls.
cuously to call out a number of figures,
which were araonged in rows on a
blackboard, and Mazeppa, after looking
over them, gave the sum of the addi
tion by pawing the ground in every
case the exact number of times neces
sary to indicate the result, As a mere
trick this would be surprising enough,
but, considering the figures were taken
at random from among the audience,
ladies and gentlemen, and, in particu
lar, eager little boys contributing, col
lusion seemed out of the question, and
Mazeppa's good faith was established
! by the still more remarkable achieve
I ment that followed. The horse was
I directed to count the number of per-
sons in friven rows of the audience, and,
' having done so more than once, pro
ceeded to indicate the number of
women and the number of men in any
' particular tow. Having passed this
examination, Mazeppa stood forth to
answer any question to which it was
possible to givg Tep1? directly, by
j means of a shake of the head, signify
ing either "Yes" or "No," or in figures,"
Thus the day of the week and the
1, 4 11 11. Ji,. ..J
birthday, revealed to the trainer, Prof,
H. S. McGuire, was promptly found by
the horse, any attempt to deceive it
meeting always with a decidedly em
phatic negative. This astounding en
tertainment concluded with an imita
tion by Mazeppa of a young man pay
ing bis addresses to a young lady. The
horse's affectation of tenderness add
a very humorous touch to an excellent
piece of pantomime.
A FALLEN EMPRESS.
Wieek of the Hoot SoeeeMfttl Aftresi
the World lias Kvor Kaowa.
The ex-Empress Eugenie, who was
always the guest of the De Mouchys
when she passed through Paris, has
been on the occasions that the visits
our Ville Lumiere forced to put up at
the Hotel Continental like a simple
Cook's tourist, where no one recognizes
in the lame, old, broken woman the
once radiant empress of the French,
says a Paris letter writer. The olden
prophecy that used to affright her so,
that her fate would be sadder than that
of Marie Antoinette, some people
think has been realized in her case, as
she has outlived all that seemingly
makes life worth living.
However, luckily for herself, she does
not agree with the sentimental theo
ries of the outer world, for to an inti
mate friend she said the other day:
"Although I now drift on a sea ot tor
row between two coffins" a royally
bad metaphor "still I would not
change lots with anyone, for I have
been the most radiant and courted of
sovereigns." She lives in her past now,
having alienated most of her friends
by her temper and her avarice. She
was the curse of her dynasty, the in
stigator of the Franco-Prussian war,
and the direct cause of the prince im
perial's fatal expedition to Zululand,
whither the drove him by her penuri
ousness and ceaseless exactions. That
she is unconscious of her own share in
the ruin of her family is much the bet
ter for her; still, when she crawled
past us at the Continental the other
day all those who recognized her
looked with a most certain sorrow at
the wreck of the most successful ad
venturess the world has ever known.

Town Office Bolldingt.
I The hotel hermits are more widely
known than the hermits of the big
office buildings, but the latter come in
for a good deal of comment in a desul
tory way, and are apparently proud of
their seclusion. There are men in the
big hotels, says the New York Sun, who
boast of not having wandered more
than two or three blocks from the
building in years. Other hotel hermits
go to their offices every morning, re
turn at a certain time in the after
noon, and then remain steadfastly in
doors until the following day. They
' are intimately acquainted with all
the goings on in the big hostelry
which serves them as a home, and
j have an active interest in its various
j departments. The hermits, of the of
fice buildings sometimes sleep in them,
but as a rule they have lodgings some
where in the lower part of the town,
where they put In eight or ten hours
out of the twenty-four. But at all
other hours they are to be found in the
big building which serves them as an
office, and practically as a home.
A great number of men go to the
Equitable building at half-past seven
o'clock in the morning, attend to then
office duties, eat breakfast, luncheon
and dinner at the restaurant, get
shaved and have their boots polished
in the building, and remain there un

The force at the Washington ordnance
shops has nearly completed the asaen

engaged tome time in the construction
of a furnace for heating the tube of
this gun, which ia of 8 inch caliber.
The f nrnace will apply tbt bast to the
gun in a horizontal instead of In per

piece of metal which flts over the bait
of the tube and gi vet It greater strength,
will be forced over the tubs while the
latter is kept beyond the expanding in
fluences of the beat by the constant ap
plication of a stream of water.
The delay in assembling the gun, tbt
forging! of which have been ready tor
some time, bat been caused by the dif
ficulty in securing a pyrometer, a deli
cate instrument for registering the fear
ful heat of the furnace. This instru
ment has been received, and everything
is ready for the assembling of the gun.
There is naturally much Interest imong
