Portion Assoclnten with the Disused Senses
Founil to be Pooiljr Itevclopcd.
WonrEsTtrt, Fob. 4. Tho examination of the
brnin of Laura Brldgman, tho famous woman
who lived her allotting years devoid of sight,
bearing, speech, smell, nnd taste, brought
somo tlmo ago to Clark University, proves
thut tlio peculiarities wero due solely to ar
rested development In the portlqns relating to
tho. disused senses. Up to the tlmo of tho
girl's" Illness, when Bho was two years old. the
brain developed normally. Alter that It grew
unevenly. It Is a well-known and undisputed
fact that tho uso or disuse of certain portions
of tho body or of certain sets of muscles results
In n marked development or lack qt
development of these portions or mus
cles. The Mine theory was advanced us
tn tho development of tho brain-that is, thnt
the uso or disuso of tho senses would promote
or arrest the development of thoso portions of
tlie brain to which thoy worn related.
There will bo a good opportunity to test tho
truth of this thory in tho brain of Laura Brldg
man. a healthy woman with an originally nor
mal brain, but which lacked development,
living to I e nearly ) years of age. exorcising
to a very considerable extent tho powors left
Her. ami nevor moody or despondent. The
weight of tho brain was only slightly loss than
Unite! the entirely normal brain. Both hem
ispheres were ilevoloped alike. Tlio gray
mutter of tho cortex (which receives nnd Im
parts sensations) was somewhat lcssthnn in
ilUiavoraBo lirnin. Allot tho affected uranlal
or brain nerves wero small, and IKo regions
of tlio cortex, associated .with the defec
tive sensea and with motor or articu
late tongue, speech, wuio poorly pr pe
culiarly developed. In general, tho entlro
cortex was thinner than In the normal brains
witli which It was compared. The norve ter
minations of tlio noso and eyes wero destroed
or highly disordered, and there was great de
struction r tho middle car und of tho nerve's
connected with tho organs of tusto.
'1 ho most striking and conclusive feature,
howuver, was tho condition of tho parts con
,noctd with tlio nerves nf slgbt As stated
above, flio right cyo of Miss Bridgman re
mained useful to a slight oxtent some time
iongui than tl.o left. This resulted In develop
ing that portion of the brain connected with
tlio right eye to a greater extent than that con
ducted with tho lult. This Is sufficient proof
in Itself that tho development depends upon
the uso of the organ.

seemed to tako an extraordinary Interest In

O'Brien, who has a reputation as a doBperato
fellow, was taken from jail at London on
Jan. 22 by Detective Frost of Scotland 1'ard.
" Now," said the detective. " vvo'ro going to
Quconstown. If you walk faster than I do, or
if toil start to run, I'll shoot tou dead, on my
word of honor."
At Quocnstown they found Detoctlvo Thomas
Bellly of the District Attorney's ofllco nt
Albany, who had preceded them from Liver
pool to complete arrangements on shipboard.
Detectivo Frost snapped a handcuff on
O'Brien's wrist and then thootlier on the wrist
of tho Albany detective. ...
" He's safe now," said Fiost laughingly. If
ho escapes it's your fault, not mine." Then
turning to O'Brien ho shook his finger at him,
nnd said : , ...
"If I over lay eyos on tou In this country
ncsin you won't luavo Lnglnnd for ten years.
TIandeuTod together, Beilly nnd O'Brien
t boarded tho steamer
nnd wonttotheir cabin.
Thoy remained thero
until tho ship had
cleared tho port. Then
the detectivo took the
irons off. and O'Brien
threw them out of the
portholo How ho hap

popular passengers on

with him all tho tirao. They Bat together nt
tlio table, walked together, slept together. At
tlrst tho passengers didn't know which was
dotective and which was thief. Tho tall, stal
wart, distinguished-looking O'Brien had tha
advantage over Beilly in looks.
One gentlomnn. after a fow minutes' general
conversation with O'Brien, asked him:

Of course, everybody paL -f
on board knew . r,s' S
O'Brlon history, but vy
the fact that hit was a

made him more inter- v '-'

course. Reotnlonr. At tliodlnncrtable O'Brien
kept up u nittlo ot conversation. Hn bus
travelled rnucli, nnd bis talk was entertaining.
Being very liberal In his tiis to the Etovvards,
ho won their heurts. Ono of them, in speaking
to the roporter. said:
" He was a dom folne. genttemon. sor: ho was
thot. sor. Mister Beilly wasn't habf thu gen

He'd take his glnhss'r 'Is bottle, sor. like a

For over a week; four Albany detectives hud
been watting In how Y'orkforthe Arizona to ar
rive sons to guard against any attempt ot this

The story Hint Lontz was In Irvlngton on
bnturday evening is corroborated by that of
a farmer living tutwoen Irvlngton and Mill
burn, who says that ho saw Lontz walking to
ward the latter vlllago nttor fi o'elook nnd ten
dered him it ride In his wagon, which oiler
Lenta refused. This loads tho detectives to
the conviction that Johnny (lensel did see
Lcntz In Millbtirn nt 7 o'clock on Saturday
night . The boy snld that he was not sure that
ltwas Lcntz hu saw, but ho thought It was.
Tho story told by John Hmltll. clerk of tho
lodging housu at f Now Chambers street. Is
partly corroborated by a young man who Is
employed in Oliver Itonnell's butcher shop in
Miliburn. Hu said thnt ho saw and spoke tn
Lontz on the plutfnrm ot tha Chestnut street
station of thul'ennsylvaula ltallroad In Newark
at 4 o clock on Bundny afternoon, ni:d that
Lentzthon refused to return his salute and
turned his back. It was supposed that Lcntz
then enmo to this city on it train.
All this oonillcts with tho story told by Con
rod SJchlnssor, the barkeeper, who says that
he Ib positive and has four witnesses to prove
that Lontz spent Hunday night in his father's
saloon and boarding house an Springfield av
enue, near the Irvlngton linft. Thu police aru
mzzled about young Bohtoiser's testimony,
ecauso they cannot understand why ho
should doslro to shield Lcnt7. who is a com
parative stranger to him. Tho bluo shirt
which Lentz worn when arrested was nrpar
ontly new. but both 1 ontz and Will Mnrshall,
with whom ho rodo to Newark on Saturday
morning, say that he wore it then.
The clerk ot the lodging house says that
Lenta woro a white shirt on tiunduy night
when In this city, nnd that thoro was a largo
crcscont-shnped blood stain nn the bosom. A
search of Lontz's trunk at Ids boarding houso
revealed no shirts other than vvhlto ones,
bmlth's identification of Lontz at tlio jail had
a serious effect ou tlio prisoner. Beforo ho saw
the clerk be was chatting and laughing, but
since the Identification he has beon morose.
