Mr. Lyon explaiied that lie had sent
to Dr. MeCandless a number of bot
ties bought from the South Carolina
dispensary and these were numbered
by a third party. There were also
bottles of identical appenrance bought
in bar-rooms in Atlanta. There were
lettered A, 13. C. etc. Dr. MeCand
less did n1-oit know which was which.
There were only four exhibits from
tihe bar-rooms in Georgia.
Georgia Gets Better Liquor.

Lei'66 ..... 92.10 93.40
Three Feathers . 9. .. 9.40 96.40
Mt. Vernon ........90.14 100.30
The ''proof'' shows the relative
comnmereia value. Therefore the
Georgia whiskey is a better whiskey
tian the dispensary whiskey by.from
2 to 10 per cent. Last winter Mr.
Lyon showed where retail dealers in
Georgia had received lower prices on
better whiskey than the State of
Souti Carolina had paid for whiskey
in large orders.
Another comparison which Dr. Me
Canidless' letter shows is that ''there
is nothing- in common between'' the
'Congress Hall'' 1sold in this state
and the ''Congress IIall'' sold in
Geor-ia; that there was enough ani
line in 'nie bottle of gin cocktail to
dye a piece of cloth. and aniline dye is
poisonus 11as it is an indigo product
generally and that the ''Old Joe"
wiiskey sold by Bluthenthal & Bick-:
ert is regarded b)y Dr. McCandless
''as being wholly artificial.''
The conclusion was derived, there
fore that Dr. Bu1irneY has perhaps
noted anl improvement in dispensary
whiskey since the days of tle pu*
chases from the Mill Creek distillerv.
It lie knows nothing of tihe whisk(y

NEW PSYCHICAC, RESEARCH.
Amerlean Institute to In*ent1gate
Vifferent Phenomena CarWeully.
Dr. Jamep 11. Hyslop, hea4 .of the
Amerlean Institute For Scigntifle Re
search, announced receOtly that Dr.
Tames Putnam, neurologist of Harvard
uiversity; the Rev. Dr. Minot J. Sav
ige and the Rev. Dr. R. Ieber Newton
tad been elected members of the board
)f trustees of the institute, which here
after will make greater strides in
psychical research In America, says the
New York Tribune.
The American institute will Investi
late two types of psychology, those
,alled abnormal psychology and super
aormal psychology. The objects of
study in the first division will include
aeurasthenia and mental troubles.
rhe second line of research will include
iallucinations of a healthy mind. The
ibnormal psychology, it is expected,
will need the greater amount of funds,
is it ii intended eventually to have a
iospital where patients will be treated.
there has never been any investiga
tion of cases coming under that cate
,ory in the United. States, Dr. Hyslop
It is also the object of the Institute
to investigate the cases of the blind in
asylums and to study certain types of
visual sensations and see what can be
made of the nachinery of hallucina
tions. The loss of one sense, it is held,
xccentuates the others, and this will
also be studied. The deaf and dumb
will also be studied for auditor hallu
,inations and the insane for vhrlous
The institute intends to bold clinics
in certain hospitals wbih have promis
Dd to allow them room to treat these
.ases. Ultimately a hospital will be
Drected for the Institute's own work.
Several professional men are said to
be back of the movement who at pres
ant desire their names to remain secret.
Dr. Hyslop in speaking of what a
mental suggestion may do told of a re
cent experience of his in the New York
subway with an intoxicated man. The
man, he said, was angry and unruly,
but Dr. Hyslop said he beckoned to
Mtm and sat beside him and by patting
im and mental suggestion quieted him
go that he left the train in good humor.
This, he said, was merely suggestion
ind not hypnotism. Speaking about
iypnotism, Dr. Ilyslop said that the in
3titute could defluitely settle the ques
tion whether a man under hypnotic in
guence could be made to perform a
2riminal action or even to kill. He said
je doubted if a subject could be made
to do such acts. le told of his own son,
who, he said, when under hypnotic in
fluence, hesitated to do anything ab
surd or ridiculous.
