A SOPORIFIC PLANT.
Cows aad llorsra Are rrrallarlv At
(eeled by One Thai Grow
Mr. fiillespie, of Edinburgh, ha
called attention to the curious soporific
net ion of certain plant found in l!us
sia, mid ill America, says the Boston
Transcript. These plants are known
to Imfanists mult r the name of stipa.
On the Mediterranean coast, where the
stipa grow in profusion, it is called
tii-gin's flax, and because of it lieauti
f ill blossom is used extensively for
lioiiqucts. In Trxa and .New Mexico
a spicira of this plant, railed stipa
xiridiila, iHissrssr soporific qualities.
Cowboys and herders of the west, where
the plant grow luxuriantly, oftrn find
to their astonishment that their cows
and horses arc suddenly overcome with
sleepiness, acompauied with great
weakness. They are rendered incapa
ble of traveling and cannot exert them
selves without great effort. Horsesand
cows ore nITrcted ulike. The head fall
low, the body trembles, the breath
comes with difficulty anil the heart
Wats tumiiltiiously. Acompanyingthis
ther is profuse sweating exhaustion.
The poor animal seems violently sick.
However, in a few days. his state be
come normal again.
Strangely enough, sheep are not af
fected by this plant. As an experiment,
Mr. tlillespie inoculated frogs and rab
bit with an extract from the stipa
I viriilula. After the injection the ani
mals were apparently seized with hal
lucinations and suffered the nuxiety

There is a physician in West Philadel

world. Its father will hold a cane in
his two hand and the baby, grasping
it, will draw itself up to itsrbin three

feat of strength. The physician says
that his boy's unusual muscular devel
opment is due to a daily massage treat
ment. Kvery morning he lays the little
follow, naked, on a blanket and kneads
his muscles for 30 minute. Once a
mouth he weighs the baby antl meas
ure its calves, chest, arms, etc. The
monthly increase of weight and girth
is remarkable. The baby has never had
shoe or stockings on its feet or a hat
on its head, and in the summer it wears
only a little sleeveless dress that cornea
to its knees. It takes a cold bath every

cian often dec-larva, "this child will be
one of the strongest men the world has
ever seen. He w ill never get bald, and
lie will never lose a tooth. As for Ei
muscles, with massage and a course ol
exercise that I have laid out, they will
be big and supple all over hi body. All
his flesh will be, when tense, as hard
as steel, and hen relaxed as soft the

Every month I grew worse and at last
became so bad that I found I was

The doctors treated me for female

change in mc.
