Hid Bank Notes In Her Bod.
Mile. Humbert, a woman whoso
life was shrouded In much mystery
for many years, died in a veritable
garret In tho Rue des Martyrs, at tho
?dvanced age of 87.
In her district the old damo passed
as a mendicant, owing to the sbab
ciness of hor attire, and people,
liruck by her mlsernblo appearanco,
iometimes spontaneously ottered her
?1ms in tho streets. She never re?
fused the money, but was in the
habit, after receiving It, of telling
per benefactors to keep away from
the side of her dress In whlcii she
ifcopt her purse. Tho extraordinary
courtuct was usually set down by good
Samaritans to crozlencBS.
Surprise was great when It was dis?
covered lately that Mile. Humbert
bad loft a sum of several thousa.id
pounds in bonds and bank notes sewn
rap in an old matt ress, and that, more
rover, she had a valuable collection ot
ipalntlngs by old and modern masters
ila ber garret.
It has since come to light that the
?apparent mendicant and female 1ml
itator of Daniel Dancer was a great
ibeauty In the days when Louis Phll
ippo was Kim:, nnd that the money
and the pictures were the gifts of her
admirers, ouo of-'whom was a promi.

SOME EXPERIMENTS IN A PARIS
Producing the Hypnotic State?
Emanations of Light From Fuccs
Visible to Hypnotic Subjects?
SOME experiments of particu?
lar interest on account of the
dispute ns to the therapeutic
and psychological value of
hypnotism, have recently been mado
at tho Chnrite Hospital, Paris, under
the direction of tho surgoon-in-ohiof,
Dr. Lays. A careful account of these
experiments npponrs iu McClnro's
Magazine from tho pen of B. N. Sher
These hypnotic experiments may bo
roughly divided into two classes. Tho
first aro experiments of n spccnlntivo
kind, that is to say, such as do not
produoo practical effects. Tho second
doss includes such as often produoo
moh results. Theso lust experiments
?ro mainly tho diagnosis of pationtsby
subjects in tho hypnotic Btnto and tho
juro of moral nud physical maladies by
tho power of suggestion.
The hypnotic stato is divided by Dr.
Lays into fivo phases of intensity?
somnambulism, fascination, catalepsy,
lethargy and hypo-lethargy, with vari?
ous intermediary phnsos, whioh havo
uot yet been tabulated. Tho hypnotic
state, in one or other of its phasus, is
produced iu tho subject or patient in
two ways?by word of command or by
the use of tho rotativo mirror. Tho
rotative mirror is ofton UBed where
hypnotic influenco is first applied to
an individual. Tho mirror much re?
sembles Hint used by bird-catchers for
snaring lurks. It iB composed of four
arms, overlaid with bright, polished
metal. Tho arms rcvolvo by clock?
work on a pivot, at n tremendous rate
of speed. Tho pationt is seated in a
high-backed chair with hie back to tho
light, which shines full on tho mirror,
and is bidden to keop his eyes fixed
upon it, nud simultaneously to desire
to bo sent to sleop. Tho clockwork
sots tho mirror in rotnry motion with
a dazzling effect. Sleop is not invari?
ably produced. Many persons are re?
fractory ; but as a rule in about twenty
por cent, of tho cases tho operation is
successful, and after a poriod varying
from fivo to twenty minutes tho pationt
is Eeon to drop to sleop.
"The eyes," says a writer on tho
subjoct, "aro first attraoted by tho
ray of light which flash from the wings
of tho mirror, then 1 i I tie. by little, and
at tho ond of a poriod which varies ac?
cording to tho temperament of tho
pntient, a kind of fascination is pro?
duced, tho lids get tired and imper?
ceptibly close, tho bend fnlls buck and
the patient Bleeps a sleop which sccmB
natural, but which is really one of tho
first phases of the hypnotic sleep." In
other enses, thnt is to say, iu tho case
of patients who aro more predisposed,
a slight shock is manifested during tho
stato of fascination, due, no doubt, to
the sudden contraction of some muscle
or system of muscles, nud tho patien
fnlls into a deep sloop, breathinghnrd.
Ue is then completely insensiblo nnd
apt for tho reception of suggestion,
having pnsscd quickly through the
Bcvernl stages of tho hypnotio sleep,
sometimes to tho lost. In most cases,
however, where tho doctor has to do
with subjects who havo often beeu
hypnotized tho simple word of com?
mand, without pnsscs or gestures of
any kind, suffices. With theso ho has
but to.say, "Go to sleep," and they
fall at once into n hypnotic state of
greater or less profundity.
Doctor Luys says that the subject in
the hypnotic 6tato has au intensely in?
creased visual faculty. Indeed, oue
of tho symptoms of this stato is a very
noticeable alteration of the appearance
of tho eye. It is stated by the doctor,
and the experiments publicly mado
may bo considered ns convincing, that,
thanks to this increased visual faculty,
tho hypnotio subject is able to see in
the human face what is entirely hid?
den to ordinary sight.
For somo time past tho doctor had
established that when a magnet iu pi-j
sented to a hypnotic snbjeot in one of
tho phases of trance tho effect pro?
duced vnries. according as tho north
or Bouth polo?that is to say, tho
negative or tho positivo end of the
magnet?is ofiorod. Tho north pole,
in all cases, produces a state of intense
delight, expressed by gestures and
outcries of pleasure. Tho subjects in
this case declare that they boo at the
end of tho magnet emanations of a
beautiful bluo light. When the bar
iB reversed tho greatest horror nud
disgust at onco nffect tho subject. If
nsked what it is that cnusos this dis?
may-the subject will answer that it is
tho sight of a fcnrfnl red light playing
around tho end of tho magnet.
Investigating furthor iu this direc?
tion tho doctor has discovered that tho
same snbjocts can detoct in tho human
faoo emanations corresponding to thoso
seen at the ends of tho magnetic bar.
Thus from tho loft eyo and loft oar and
left corner of tho mouth in persons iu
a good stato of health blue emanations
can bo soon by tho hypnotized person,
according to tho declarations of such
Iu coses of persons, however, suffer?
ing from nervous disorders, or from
the results of disooscs or accidents, tho
colors vary. Thus, according to one
of tho subjects, tho red light proceed?
ing from the right oyo of a person af
frected with ithort-'sightodiiess and fa
liguo of tho organ was largely spotted
with violet. Violet is tho characteris?
tic color in all oases of great nervous
fatigue. BInok, groen and inulti-col
orod Homos havo boen described by tho
subjects a3 showing from persons suf?
fering with various forms of nervous
disordor. A man who hns been wound?
ed in tho eyo with a rapier wns char?
acterized, at an interval of three
months, by two different snbjocts, who,
according to Dr. Luys, had had no
means of intor-communication, as emit?
ting a green light from tho injured
If it can bo established that certain
diseases produce in thoso suffering
from them a variation in tho color of
the emanations, which aro porceptible
to th3 hypnotic subject, tho existence
nnd nature of the disease will bo certi?
fied by the tint.
Among tho experiments which have
been classified as of a speculative kind,
and distinct from thoso of practical
worth, nono aro moro interesting than
thoso that involve, tho presentation to
subjects in the hypnotio stato of van-'
onssubstances and medicines contained,
in hermetically scaled tubes. Tho
manifestations, acoording as tho tubo
is presented on tho right or the left
sido of the subject, indicate emotions
of a diametrically opposite nature, j
Thus when a tubo containing ordinary,
rod popper was offorod to the left, or,
as the doctor calls it, tho blue Bide,
of a girl subject in the hypnotio
state, symptoms of keen pleasure
wero discorniblo, which changed
suddenly to an expression of
violont disgust when tho tubo wasoar
ried to the rod or right sido. Acoord?
ing to tho doctor, tho human being is
double, and docs not feel tho earno on
his red as ou his blue side. Thyme
presented to ouo pationt produced ter?
rifying hallucinations; in onothor it
called forth an expression of calm de?
light. Singularly, in tho application
of thymo, Micro was a physiological
etYoct, also, on the thyroid gland of
tho throat, tho size of the nock being
increased from thirty to thirty-threo
centimeters, or somewhat moro than
an inch. Morphine in ono pationt
bred fanoics of an evidently terrifying
nature, in another an intense drowsi?
ness. Tho effect of frankincense pre?
sented to the left of the nook was an
omotion of torror. Somo water iu a
tube hold near tho left side of a hyp?
notio subject's head caused a series of
spasms resembling those usual to pa?
tients Buffering from hydrophobia.
Tho dootor maintains that in each
enso tho patient was in total ignorance
of tho oontcnte of tho ttJ>o.

"Wo encomped near a swamp,"
says a gentleman describing a meal
ho had with somo cart drivors in
South America, "and supped on
sliced pumpkins, boiled with bits of

fashion. One iron spoon and two
cow's horn's split in halvos, wore
passed around the group, tho mem?
bers of which 6qunttod upon their
haunches and frcoly holpod them?
selves from tho kettle. Even in this
most uncivilized form of satisfying
hunger there is a peculiar etiquette,
which the most lowly person in?
variably observes. Each mombor of
tho company in turn dips his spoon,
or horn, into tho contro of the stew
nnd draws it in a direct lino towards
him, never allowing it to deviate to
tho right or loft. By observing this
lyilo each person cats without inter?
fering with hin neighbor. Boing
ignorant of this custom I dipped my
horn into tho mess nt random nnd
