street for about twenty minutes in
a state of mesmerisin, and had to be
convoyed on a barrow to the police
oflce, and the soevices' of a medical
mn obtained before he was brought
to his sensOs. The mesmerist gave
an entertaine ent in the burgh on
the previous evening and the young
taon who is a litter in one of the
shtipbiytiltling yards, was meosmerized
along with several othors, and while
in that state the mesmerist eoni
nandetl him to cn'rue to the corner
of the above street at a quarter to
two o'clock on the following day and
share with him half of his dinner.
The titter wont to his work in the
mnorning all right, but just as he
was in the act of taking his dinner;
he sdttdenly left the table carrying
a little jug full of broth, and made
his way down Govan road in an ex
cited mannler to the place where the
"l)professor" wias to meet him. A
largo crowd soon collected rotund'
the poor fellow, who was as if
iuned to the wall, holding on tena
ciously to his little jug containing
the broth. He eventually slid down
upo'n the cold ground, however, and
lacy there for about twenty minutes.
'hme excited crowd expected the
maesmorist to keep his appointment
and relieve the poor follow from his
position, but ho did not put in an
tpliarifaneo. The police arrived on
the scene, and the man was convoyed
to the oflice on a barrow. His li!nbs
were by this time perfectly stiff,
and with the exception of a slight
imlovomnent. of the heart and pulse,
the body showed very little signs of
li'fe. Dr. Barras was sent for Aimd,
after (o:nsidorable difliculty, succeed
ed in b.nging the young fellow out
of his inesmoric sloop, after his wife
andl brothers, who had como to the
office, h:d(1 hoen greatly alarmed
:aboit his condition. The man's
health must have suffered considera
bly by the exposure, as he shivered
iko an aspen leaf on awakening, and
had to be taken home in a cab.
