And now there comos from Now York
tho statement that the body of Hiihop,
tho mind reader, who was reported to
havo died in ft cataleptic tit, was curved up
by come doctors, eager to mnke a selentille
luvwtigatlon, within five hoursol tho time
w hen he full a supposed corpse. Theso
doctors neither consulted thoCorono r, nor
the supposed dead niaii'a wifo or mother.
They assumed tho statement of Bishop's
friend, Dr. Irwin, to bo correct, that
io was dead and went ahead with their
autopsy. The mother and sistor ol JJmliop
declaro that thoy murdered him; Hint they
themselves bnvo been In a condition of
catalepsy similar to that In which tho son
and brother counterfeited death, and Dr.
Hammond end Dr. Hpit.ka, two celebrated
aliciiUts, Hlato that the rigidity of cata
lepsy is easily mistaken for that of death.
Mr. llishop's mother and sister wore both
subject to cataleptic trances. His mothor

ral year ago alio hoard her friend mak
ing preparation for bur funeral. Her
brother's opivosition to the buriul savod
her life. Mr. Llishop was also a frequent
victim of cntulopsy. Onto beforo, In Scot

remained in its thralls for a few days.

Hanging in a bam In Old Pinoville.t'irce
mile from bore, is Ihe moat marvelous
freak of nature over heard of or seen. Ita
existence, however, is vouched for by
Mcttgr. James P. Whnlleu and Joseph
Ideally, of l-ouinville, who have just re
turned from Old 1'ineville. It is well
known that when cucumbers aro flint cut
from tho vino thero is a piece of the stom
which exudesor bleeds, A prominent cit
izen of Old PiuevlUo sometime ago, named
Jarcd (iibson, cut his hand, and this jnieo
got into this cut nml his hand commenced
lo inllamo and mi eruption similar to ery
sipelas made its nppeurilnce and extended
up bis arm nml llnnlly spread over his
w hole liody. fstrango to sny, there wu no
pain attending theso eruptions of erysip
elas, mid ho continued to gather and pack
his cucumber and prepare thorn for
nickliiia. To the irreut surprise of every
body, theso littlo pimples umniued the np
oenranco and form of small cucumbers,
nud continued to grow. Although Gibson
kept wull and hearty, ho wus compelled to
stop work and uiko lo boil. Tlio dnctors
nnd quacks from around here visited him.
One prescribed one tiling and one unother.
One wished to bloed him; ono wanted to
cut the cucumbers oil; another said not to
let him have liny water and thoy would
dry .up; auother said stick a hole in each
cucumber ana iney wouiu uie anu a uow
skin form; another wished to wrap hiin
up in a muinmoth poultice of barn-yard
manure and draw them all to oue head;
another said thev ought to bo scattered.
All tho doctors bad a different remedy,
but all disagreed so thero wits souio
hope tbut tlio patleut would got
ll. Hut tho small cucumbers crew
Into big oih-h, and hi whole body wna
covered with them from bead to foot and
ilmv ponnniinced to ripen and turn yellow
and hang down, nud tho man looked like
a liugo buueu ol unminus. uon mcy
got ripe they began lo shrivel' up and dry
and so did the man. Ilis nap was all gone
uud ho tliod. Tho doctors -procured tho
consent of his widow to permit an autopsy
to bo madu for tlio benelit of science, and
they cut him open, and to their annuo
ment found no blood, no muscles, no
sinews, no aitoncs, but fouud only ono
solid mass of cucumber seeds. It was so
n.innrknl.lp il would lie useless to llUVO the
