TOM SCOTT AND TIIE TEXAS
From a Kcw York Graphic Interview.
"Among the rumors during your absence
was one to the eilect that the principal ob
ject of your visit to the Continent was to se
cure aid in tlio buildiug of the Texas Pa
cific railroad. Is their any foundation for
such a report?"
"Not tlio slidicst," responded Col. Scott.
"I went abroud solely for the benefit of my
health and to secure a relaxation trom busi
ness cares. I did not permit business uiat
tets to bother mo. Of courso 1 was kept
thoroughly informed, through Mr. Roberts,
of the affairs of the corporation over which
I preside, by mail, uud occasionally, when
necessity required, forwarded instructions."
"You still are determined to'pusli through
this great work to completion?"
"Without a doubt," replied the great
railroad magnate, warmly. "This road is
needed, and it is for tlio best interests of
the country that it should be completed and
as specdly as practicable. It extends
through the finest agricultural lands in the
Union, through vast and rich mining re
gions, both of which will be developed and
populated in time, and which will add to
the wealth of the nation. The route will
be an invaluable one to the Southern States
and will vastly benefit tho Pacific States.
The climate, too, is in its favor, no snow
sheds being required to protect the trains,
and iu addition, tho usual engineering
dilliculties to be surmounted are iusigniti
caut as compared to all other routes."
"How many miles of tlio Eastern section
havo been completed?"
"Five hundred and fifteen, and this sec
tion has been patronized beyond our most
sanguine expectations, having already more
than paid expenses. Another section of
forty miles, extending from Port Worth to
Wethcrlord, will be completed by fall, and
tho work will be continued on."
"Colonel, will, tho Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad Company succeed in its fight to
gain an Eastern outlet at Communipaw!"
President Scott sat a moment in reflec
tion, and replied: "It remains to be seen
whether or not they will bo able to do so.
At any rate, tho Pennsylvania Railroad
Company will notquie'"y permit that com
pany to gain its ends in this direction when
it attempts to do so by passing over our
lands. Tho Baltimore and Ohio company
can not and will not bo allowed to run its
tracks through our yards at West Philadel
phia. Tho mutter is now iu tho United
States district court, where this question
will be settled. Tho Pennsylvania railroad
is not an aggressive corporation, but will
stand by its rights. If imy other company
wuhes an outlet, let it pay for It as we
have done. It is tho policy pf tlio Penn
sylvania company to maintain friendly
relations with tho other trunk lines, and
this courso will bo continued. Tho west
bound freight question has been settled
satisfactorily, and I havo no
doubt that tho question respecting
cast-bound freights will bo amicably ar
ranged, placed as it is in tho Rands of such
able and impartial men as Charles Francis
Adams, Jr.,jmd Messrs. Wright and Wells.
I am in favor of modcrato ami fair rates
rates that will bo acceptable to all, and I
have no doubt these gentlemen will aid iu
settling this question on this basis."
"It is said that the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company will run n lino of grain steamers
between this port and Liverpool in connec
tion with their monster elevator now build
ingin Jersey City. Is this report autheu
tic?" "Not exactly," said Mr. Scott. "The
company will not run its own steamers yet,
but will give others employment in tho
course ct time. Wo are improving our ter
minal iuciimes as rupnuy ns possible, and
aro adding to our rollimt stock to keep up
with our rapidly-Increasing business."

animal of still more monstrous size, and of

as to what could have been the general
condition of the earth through this Jurassic
period as to its means of affording siibsten-
auce for such monstrous land animals, rep

lently existed in that period. Were the
trees in that pcrnd as We in uronortion

largest forest trees a, they exist iu our dav

they must ever remain so.

WITCHCRAFT IN SOUTHEASTERN
A reporter visited tha district of I.i
Plaisance creek last week, that is infested
with witches. From him wo gather the
following: A German family, living west
of Mr. Albain's, claim that a woman "living
near by is a witch; that she has caused
them a great amount of trouble witii their
horses, cattle, milk and cream, and they
themselves have been tho victims of he"r
wonderful bewitching poweis. Thev have
employed witch doctors from Detroit.
Cleveland, Toledo, Ypsilanti, Frenchville
and La'Salle, which has cot them not far
from $200. They have driven sharp spikes
m different parts of tho house, nailed old
horse shoes over the doors, and hung a ch:p
of wood in tho chimney to dry out, think
ing that the witch would die when the
moisture of the chip had dried up,
All this that they have done was of no
avail. They were about to give up in de
spair, when one of tho neighbors came to
their rescue, and adopted a pi an, by which
the witches havo been driven, from their
stronghold and sought a more congenial
climate farther west.
The plan adopted by this Good Samari

Cats at Saratoga.
experiments of i'rof. wilder in feline
Prof. Burt G. Wilder, of Ithaca, dis
played tu a small circle of naturalists this
afternoon a series of experiments for which
an English investigator. Prof. Ferrior. has
become famous. It had long been supJ
poseu tnat tno Hemispheres ot tlio brain, at
till events on their outer surfaces, contained
no special nervous connection with the rest
of tho system; that in that they were not
the places where thought or motion was
culled forth. Strong electric stimulus had
been applied to theso parts of the brain
without any result, but less than ten years
ngo it was found by certain investigators
that very weak electric currents ap
plied to tho surface of tho hemisphere
called forth specific actions, and this
clue was followed out by Prot. Ferrier with
astouishiug results. Some of these exper
iments not making nny pretensions to
their novelty were exhibited by Prof.
Wilder upon a largo white cat that had
been made utterly insensible by tho ad
ministration of ether. He had mapped out
before him a diagram of the brain, with
certain places designated by figures.
Pussy's brain was denuded, and the points
specified were touched by the terminals of
a weak electric current. A chart stated
what was to be expected, and the event
happened exactly in accordance. Thus,
when the place on the brain marked "1"
was touched, tho opposite hind leg of the
aninml wns advanced, ns the chart said it
would bo. When "4" was touched, the
iron leg moved as if to strike, being first
drawn back. AVith a touch to "0" the jaws
moved and tho mouth opened. In some
instances the animal has bein made to
scream, spit, and lash its tail by similar
means; or its lips rise and the nostril seems
to bo irritated. The remarkable circum
stance is that precisely the same class of
actions always tollow the application ot the
electricity to a given spot. This is a scien
tific phrenology; but exactly how to explain
it, nobody yet knows. Professor Wilder
has a large number of cats' brains here, in
alcohol. They servo every purpose of the
human brain "for a student, r.nd are more
accessible, as well its in better preservation.
In describing the professor's method of ob
taining sections of a cat, given in this cor
respondence recently, it should have been
stated that the cat is first wholly frozen,
and then cut into sections for anatomical
display sawed iu'.o convenient slices.
