j SHE SINGS IN A TRANCE.
' Peculiar Action of a Girl Suffering
From a Mysterious Ailment.
r.npuBi ic ppkctau
I'elersburs, Va., Sept. 8. Physicians here
are puzzled over one of tho strangest cases
of illness that has come under their ob
servation. JIIss Mamie Burch, daughter
of B. S. Burch, a well-known citizen of
this place, has just emerged from her
Tourth trance. Doctor J. E. Booth, one of
Petersburg's most prominent physicians,
says tbat he has never known of such a
remarkable case. Before she went Into
these trances Hiss Burch was suffering
from a violent form of dyspepsia. About
six months ago tho young lady went Into
her first trance, and for three weeks she
could not be roused or take nourishment.
In the second trance sho would sing most
beautifully, but still sho could not be com
municated with at all.
In one of her trances she Imagined that
she saw her dead brother. These trances.
Doctor Booth says, are the only things
that have saved her life, as medical skill
had been exhausted when nature came to
the rescue and put her in a peaceful trance
to tlue over the most dangerous oeriod of
Each time Miss Burch would awake re
stored to fair health, with the exception of
great emaciation from the deprivation of
tood. The mental faculties after each
trance were always clear, and she would
say that she enjoyed the sleep and felt
When awake a severe froth Is expector
ated all the time. On the verge of each
tranco Miss Burch was expected to die
from sheer exhaustion, which nature seems
to recuperate during tho trance. Miss

light nourishment, which was Impossible
before her trance.
Burch, as stated, has Just como out of one

TRIBES MUST SETTLE DEBTS.
Choctaw and Chickasaw Commis
sions to Meet.
South McAlcytcr. I. T.. Sept. 8. The joint
commissions or the Choctaw and Chicka
saw nations, heretofore appointed to adjust
the Indebtedness of the two nations, each
to the other, wan railed tn hi.pt nt Smith
McAlester to consider their final report this
week. Messrs. V. U. McCurtaln and A. Telle
of the Choctaw Commission were present,
but upon arrival here, they received a tele
Bram from Governor Johnston of the Chick
asaw Nation that the Chickasaw Commis
sion would not arrive until next Monday.
The nations hold their lands, and some
other property In common, nnd whatever is
collected therefrom, buch as hay, timber,
coal and royalties has heretofore been ap
portioned between the nations upon the
basis of three-fourths to the Choctaw's and
one-fourth to the Chlckasaws. For several
ears the Choctaws have collected what
ever royalty was due within the limits of
that nation, and tho Chickasaw authorities
An accounting upon the records of the
nations Is necessary in order to determine
whether each nation has received Its share
of thee revenues. The last sessions of the
Council of the Choctaw Nation and the
Legislature of the Chickasaw Nation ap
pointed the commission for this purpose,
and the coming meeting will be for the pur
pose of making a final settlement.
It is necessary that the tribes thus settle
their mutual debts in order to be prepared
lor allotment and distribution of tribal
property that is approaching.

BUSY CLOSING UP
WORLD'S FAIR FUND.
Committee Does Not Consider the
Task So Great as It Ap
peared at First.
WORK AMONG CORPORATIONS.
Delay Unavoidable in Securing Ac
tion by Boards of Directors
Many Subscribers Vol
World's Fair matters have been In chargo
of Mr. C. II. Huttlg, during the temporary
absence of Messrs. Francis and Thompson,
ond hs reports substantial progress in the
reorganization work for tho final canvass
) for the J5.CO0.000 local fund.
Lists of Arms and large taxpayers who
have not yet subscribed, are being care
fully gone through and assignments have
been made to Interview them separately.
The return of warm weather last week
caused several postponments of returns
from summer resorts, and quite a number
of those who must be seen before the de
Blred result is accomplished had not re
opened their desks up to yesterday. There
are various plans embodied In the general
scheme for completing the fund. In several
lines where a very lorge amount of capi
tal Is Invested In St. Louis, attempts are
being made to Increase and even up sub
scriptions. It Is generally necessary In order to ac
complish this to secure practically unani
mous action throughout the Interest. In one
wholesale line, which has subscribed near
ly JIW.OOO all the subscribers with one ex
ception, h-ive already agreed to an Increase
of about 25 per cent. In another retail line,
whero the subscriptions are Just over $100.
(00. a majority of the original signers aro
willing to double the amount of their sub
scriptions if similar action Is taken by oth
ers in the same Interest.
Task Seems !tot So Great.
The completion of tho work does not ap
pear so arduous a task as at first sight,
when it Is borne in mind that an Increase of
30 per cen on the part of subscribers al
ready on : books would finish the work.
There ait ..o doubt many subscribers for
one and two shares each who ought not to
be asked to increase. But there are 2.CM)
subscribers from JltJO to JI.0O) each. There
are 30i) from Jl.OuO to J10,lj. Incluilw, and
there are forty-one signatures in excess of
JlO.aW. A very large number of thtse are
willing. In view of the action of Congress
to Increase their holdings of stock, and the
task before the committees will be lightened
In constquence. There are moreover sev
eral available sources whence large cums
are forthcoming. The aggregate signatures
on the transportation account are Just above
J."i0,tU0. A million dollars has been relied
upon from tliLs Interest from the start, and
in the last week or two several prominent
ranroau men nave come rorwaru to a"sist
the Committee on Steam Ra'lroads and
Allied Interests to secure other signature.?.
Somo very large ones have been promised
for Eome ttmo and aro subject to the action
of boards of directors and other officials
difficult to reach In a hurry.
The original assessment against the street
railroad Interest was a quarter of a million
dollars. Prior to the consolidation, the
roads operated by the National and South
ern companies under the presidency or Mr.
C. II. Spencer and the management of Cap
tain Robert McCulIoch signed for J78.DtJ.
This liability was assumed by the United
Railways Company, nnd since then the Sub
urban Board of Directors haa nfllriallv mi-
thorized their president to sign for tho sub
urban system pro rata K5t.OO0. It is be
lieved that the entire sum originally nsked
for from the trolley roads will be made up
at an early date, nnd this alone will give
the fund a boom of great value.
llrewen Arc Rrlnclant.
The return to the city of a number of
prominent brew ere will also enable definite
action to be taken on the brewery sub
scription, on which Mr. XV. F. Nolker has
worked earnestly for months without, so
far. definite results. Additional large sums
are relied upon from several lines. Tho
question is frequently asked how much In
excess of J3.0eo,W0 will the committees have
to go In order to Insure the actual payment
of that sum In response to calls under tho
terms of the subscription. The greatest cars
has been exercised In accepting subscrip
tion", nnd it is believed that the percentage
of defaults on calls will be very small. It
will be remembered that the Autumnal Fes
tivities Association collected in cash more
than 95 per cent of the J40O0O3 subscribed in
1831 for the provision of attractions In SU
I-ouls during preparations for and tho hold
ing of the World's Columbian Exposition.
International and other large exposition
held In this country have collected In the
neighborhood of 33 and 95 per cent of the
amount signed for. and It is believed that
equally good results can be relied upon In
regard to the Louisiana Purchase Centen
nial signatures and the collections thereon.
The Finance Committee will be materially
aided In this work and be able to strika
simultaneously in every available direction
by prompt completion of the necessary pre
liminary fund. Under the tcrm of the sub
scription the first 10 per cent is not legally
due until the entire fc.OOO.OflO has been signed
for. A strict adherence to this technicality
would leave the committee entirely without
funds for aggressive work, both in tho city
and in the State, to say nothing of mis
sionary work which must bo done without
further delay, both In the Eastern States
and In Europe.
Subscribers Pay In Advance.
About twenty large subscribers made vol
untary contributions last week on account
of their call of 10 per cent. One subscriber
of J15.000 paid the call In full, taking the
broad view of the situation that the Fair
was a certainty, and that ho preferred to
show his appreciation of the good work of
the committee chairmen by placing the en
tire amount of tho first call in their hands
Instead of responding to the general appeal
