That the case Is a genuine one there can
be little doubt, as thel IzarcUare vouched for
by several persons who were in the house
with Collins at the time, and as additional
proof the man exhibits the reptiles, which
he has preserved in alcohol In a bottle. Be
sides tne thirty-six whole reptiles there are
the heads and tails of several others, ail of
which, however, are very small.
Collins lives on 8ixty-third street, two
doors west of Baltimore avenue. In a two
story stone house. He makes a living by
the sale of peanuts, cakef- and other edi
bles to the crowds that are to be found
on Sunday about the waiting rooms at the

After two or three visits, and upon
careful observation of bis patient'4 symp
toms, the doctor told Collins that there
were lizzards In his stomach. Just what
preliminary treatment was given could
not be learned, a Collins, acting under
tbe phvHcJan's instructions, was unwill
iDg to divulge the iatter's name, explain
ing tbat the doctor wUbed to make some
observations of his own before the mat
ter got Into the newspapers. On Friday,
however, an emetic was administered,
aud on that day relief came to the suf
ferer. Collins was in bed at the time, in one
of the second-story rooms of the house,
and hi wife was In the living room
downstairs. She heard the noUe oc
casioned by her husband's distreM. and
ran tinntair to find him bending over
a basin, into which tbe lizards had been
ejected, A few were still alive, but the
greater number had apparently been
killed by the man's efforts to eject them
from his stomach. Other members of
Aho household wero summoned after
Mrs. Collins recovered from her aston
ishment, and they attest to tbe truth of
her story and that of her husband. The
attending physician, when informed of
the number of lizards, and when shown
the specimens in tbe bottle, pronounced,
the case to be the most remarkable
that had ever come under bis observa
tion. How the reptiles got Into his stomach
is a myxtery to Collins, who can only
account for their presence upon the
theory that he must have swallowed soma
of thcii spawn when quenching his
thirst at a spring. HI health ha" been on
the mend elnce Friday, and heis recovering
lost weight rspldly.

ERRATIC COURSE OF SUGAR.
Stocks Active This Slornlug, With
New rork,JuIy22 Stocksopcnedirregn
lur. Some were up and some were down.
Sugar opened weak and lower, and under
free offerings fell to 140. The offerings
v ere quickly absorbed, however, and the
stocks boon recovered the loss.
Stocks showed increased activity as the
morning went on. The strength was very
uniform, and there wasa breadth and
variety Id the dealings which indicated
a spirited revival of the speculative inter
est. The grangers developed signs of renewed
bull aggression, on the belief that the crops
were virtually nwmreil and on evidence of
the large foreign necessities for American
cereals Sugar continues somewhat er
ratic. Government bonds are firm and un
changed. Jfcw York toek Market.
