ANTITOXIN FOR LAZINESS
Kansas City Journal./
There is a disposition in some quarters
to treat with careless frivolity the new
antitoxin for laziness. A few days ago
an ounce of this preparation was received
in New York from Berlin, and under in
structions of the discoverer, Dr. Wolf
gang Weichhardt, it was given a trial and
the stimulative properties it developed
were remarkable to a degree. Only tha
most pronounced and obstinate cases were-*
selected for trial. The committee took a
hypodermic needle and a vial of the anti
toxin and sallied forth.
The first experiment was upon an obese
policeman leaning against a building In
somnolent oblivion of the passing throng.
One quick injection and the policeman
aroused himself, looked about with wide
open eyes, took a firm hold on his club
and started upon, his beat. He passed
three saloons withoutgroin into one of
them and stood within several feet of a
peanut stand without exercising his tra
ditional privilege of stuffing his pockets.
He helped an old lady across a street,
and ten minutes later he had arrested two

confidence men. This case was so trulj
wonderful that it was determined to mako
even a more trying test. The committee
hunted up a messenger boy and, after in
jecting the antitoxin into his arm, sent
him around the block with a note. The
boy started on a run and was back with
an answer the same afternoon. A dose
was given a plumber, and he took off a
kitchen water tap and screwed another in
its place and only charged for two hours'
time. Apparently the preparation acta
simply as a nerve tonic, causing the sub

GOOD STORY SPOILED
The sensational story that the young
king of Spain publicly slapped the face
of one of the most distinguished of Spain's
naval officers, Admiral Chacon, has cer
tainly been adequately disproved. Senor
Merino at Washington has shown Secre
tary Taft that not only was the king 300
miles away from Madrid at the time of the
reported occurrence, but that Admiral
Chacon has been dead four years.

$10,000 TO TOWN
TAKING HIS NAME
Bequest of Former Lieutenant
Governor of Massachusetts
Soon Open to Country.
Greenfield, Mass., May 12.The town
of Correctionville, Wotfdbury county,
Iowa, makes a bid for the $10,000 left
by Henry W. Cushman, lieutenant
governor of Massachusetts half a cen
tury ago, which is^to be given to the
town or not less than 1,000 inhabitants
which shall "take and forever retain"
the corporate name of Cushman1
"Whether Correctionville will be the
lucky town will not be known for five
Mr. Cushman provided that his native
in this state, Bernardston, should
av the first chance to assume his
name and win the $10,000. If Ber-
nardston failed to take advantage of
the offer, the legacy was to be open' to
any town in Massachusetts, and, at the
end of five j'ears, no Massachusetts
town assuming the name, the offer was
open to any town in the United .States.
Ber'n'ardston, after a general 'discus
sion' of the matter, rejected the proposi
tion by the vote of. 103 to 5.
Mr. Cushman had lavished upon Ber
nardston most of his fortune, the
amounts aggregating $80,000. The ques
tion whether the town should honor so
bountiful a benefactor or preserve its
ancient name with all its rich traditions
was a delicate o'ne to decide.
The name of Barnardston was given
the town honor of Sir Francis Bar
nard, provincial governor of Massachu
setts, appointed cy King George III.
The act giving the name of Bernardston
to the new pla'ntation called Falltown
was signed March 6,. 1762, by Sir Fran
Sir Francis was an unbending tory
and a supporter of the authority of his
royal master in the new world, and this
fact had long disturbed many Bernard
ston people, who disliked to think of
their town bearing the name of one who
was hostile to the spirit of 1776.
But, after all, the name disassociated
from its tor-y source was too dear in
associations and traditions to allow
them to change it, even to honor so
generous a benefactor as the late lieu
The name of Cushman will always be
associated with Bernardston. Material
monuments of his generosity to the town
are the library, Cushman hall, Cushman
park and the pastor's residence of the
There are a school fund, a Sunday
school fund and a cemetery fund estab
lished by him, and by his will the town
will benefit as residuarv legatee to the
amount of about $35^000. Further
more, if no town shall assume the name
of Cushman the fund of $10,000 is to
revert to Bernardston.
Mr. Cushman was born in Bernardston
August 9, 1805, the son of Polycarpus
L, Cushman and Sally Wiles Cushman.
He was educated in the common schools,
Beerfield and New Salem academies and
Captain Alden Partridge's military
academy, at Norwich, Vt. From the lat
ter institution he received a degree of
Master of Arts in 1827.
^Finishing his education he labored on
his farm and taught school, but very
early gave himself up to the activities
of public life and literary research.
In 1837, 1839, 1840 and 1844 he sat
in the house of representatives, and in
1844 he was elected to the senate. A
peculiar result of that election was that
he sat by the side of his father, to whom
he was opposed in politics.
In 1847 and for five years succeeding
he waa. democratic candidate for lieu
tenant governor. He never was elected
'by the people to that office, but in 1851
no choice having been made by the peo
ple, he was chosen lieutenant governor
by the legislature.
OPENS THIS WEEK
Pitcher Is of the Batter's Team,
and the Umpire's Whistle
Locates the Ball.
Louisville, Ky., May 12.The base
ball season at the Kentucky institution
tor the blind will begin next Wednes
day after three weeks of preliminary
practice. A series of games for the
championship of the institution will be
played before the athletic contest with
the Y. M. C. A. team, which is sched
uled for May 25.
John D. Gregory, of the faculty, who
has had charge of the athletic" training
among the blind boys, was responsible
for the introduction of "blind base
ball" last year, and so successful did
the sport prove that other institutions
thruout the country have adopted the
system he compiled.
The pitcher belongs to the side at
bat, and he endeavors to throw the ball
so that the batsman will strike it. The
batsman is required to hold out his bat,
indicating where he is going to strike.
The umpire then counts. "One, two,
three!" when the pitcher delivers the
ball. The batter strikes after three.''
The pitcher, the catcher and the cen
ter fielder are "seeing" boys, tho none
of the boys sees perfectly.
If the batter hits the ball the um
pire indicates with whistle signals how
far it has gone, one whistle for a hit
within the diamond, two if past second
base, etc. If a fielder locates the ball
and raises it from the ground before
the runner reaches the base, indicated
by the whistle the runner is called out.
There is, of course, no throwing to
bases, and the entire team is practically
dependent on the signals of the um

GIANT SNAKE SLAIN IN

New York Sun Special Service.
New York, May 12.A giant boa
constrictor, 12 feet long and as large
around as a man's thigh, was brought
into the Tenderloin police station last
night by a crowd of boys. They de
clared they had found the reptile alive
oa Fifth avenue near Fifteenth street,
and had' beaten, it to death with clubs
and cobble stones.
When the boys burst into the police
station carrying a gunnysack, the ser
geant wanted to know what the trouble
was. The boys turned the sack upside
down, and as the coils of the serpent
slid to the floor there was a wild stam
pede. Finally Sergeant Wilson called
from beneath a. desk to learn if the
reptile was alive. When assured the
snake was dead the crowd returned...

DEA ONE S GONE
DIED A RECLUSE
Edward M. Bigelow of Boston
Was Noted Lawyer When
Death Turned His Life.
Boston, Mass., May 12.When, two
weeks ago, death stilled the heart of
Edward M. Bigelow, there passed from
life a remarkable man, who had cast
his anathema against the world and its
people and withdrawn himself from the
activities of the World that he had
learned to hate, to dwell nearly half a
century as a recluse in one little* room.
The death of hik young wife .and
baby was the event that turned the
tide of his life, forty-two years ago.
Of his extensive estate, worth about
$300,000, he left almost all to Leslie
Hastings, an adopted son, who is a
sophomore at "Harvard college.
The room in the Niles building from
which Mr. Bigelow was borne was like
a hermit's cell. From three walls, from
floor to ceiling, leather-bound volumes
of legal lore frowned from dingy book
shelves, while the remaining wall was

Mystery in Career.
The mystery surronding the old man's
career has never been fully solved, al
tho it is known that he began to shun
the world soon after the death of his
young wife, who gave up her life at
the birth of her first child, which soon
followed its mother to the grave.
From that time on a blight seemed
to fall orr Mr. Bigelow's life, and he
forsook the companions of his youth
and gave up a brilliant career to while
away his time in solitude, surrounded
only by his books, which had become
the dearest friends he had.
He seemed to possess an insatiable
desire for learning, and read with
avidity the works of Kant and Hegel,
Tyndall and Huxley. All his books
were annotated with the scraps of in
formation that he had picked up.
