BRAIN EXCISION FOR MURDER.

ed his sister by shooting down her be

acquitted man is destined to again
oecomo lamous in a iar uillerent way,
ns the central figure of a caso that must
attract wido attention.
Ab ib well known, Divins' recent trial
before Recorder Smytli resulted in his
acquittal on tho defenso of insanity.
Divins had beon treated for epilepsy
and partial paralysis.
When Divine was 10 years old ho was
struck a blow on the left side of his
head during n boxing bout, which
knocked him down. This blow caused
In somo manner, a compression of the
brain on the left side, which produced a
partial paralysis of tiie right side and
the epileptic fits. In fact accord
ing to physicians who have examined
him, Divins has been practically de
mented since that blow on the head ten
years ago. It has been decided that
Divins is to bo operated upon by emi
nent surgeons, who will attempt by an
operation on his diseased brain to rid
him of his homicidal mania
Tho originator of this idea is Lawyer
Abraham Levy, who defended Divins.
The operation on Divins' brain will
be the first instance in the hiBtory of
surgery in the world in which a known
homicide, possessed of an nngovernabio
mania for killing, will undergo surgical
treatment in tho attompt to euro him
of his mania and restore his brain to ita
uormnl nnd healthy condition. The
most eminent experts in brain surgery
in this country are Dr. Kean of Phila
delphia, nnd Dr. Ransahoff of Cincin
nati. But Lawer Levy is now in corres
pondence with Dr. Josoph F. Terri
berry, of Manhattan hospital, and Dr.
Robert O. Davis, both experts in brain
surgery and nervous diseases, in rela
tion to the operntion. Divins will soon
enter an institution, to be prepared for
tiie operatiou, which will take place as
leoon as ho is in condition a undergo it.

Republicans and Democrats of Kansas

a foregone conclusion. The idea of a
