His name Is Valentino Perkins, he was born
Dfty-lwo years since In Henrietta, Monroe

with tho exception that he can move two ol his
lingers, and make the slightest perceptible mo

opened his jaws for more lhau thirty years, but
still he can talk with case.
Of cou.-so ho had to be fed lhe food being
placed w Ithin his lira and left under the guid

lies upon his bido, upon a low bed or couch,
which sen es aUo as a Utter, w 1th bis feet drawn
up somewhat, and his right hand caught up
near his shoulder, lies thus all day long, shitt
ing his position but once durlug twenty four
hours, w hen he Is turned over on the other side.
While he Is thus completely ossliled a human
block of llmestoue, as It were his skin retains
Ua normal character and condition, and dls
charges the functions perfectly, being, per
