Jchn McCullough's Case Provoa to
Be Incurable Softening of
Its Existence Known to His Friends For
Two Tears Greatly Aggravated by
Hia Trip to Yellowstone Park.
The Great Tragedian's Rage at Being
Forced Off the Stage By the Can
celingof His Engagement.
Chicago, III , October 1. John Mc
Cul:ough passed a comfortable night at
the Lola d Hotel, where he has pleasant
rooms overlooking the lake. When he was
first nAde aware yesterday that McVkker's
Theater was closed against him, ho wad
he first greatly shocked and then a spirit
of lnteuso anger (took possession of hi m
which still continues, and all his
acquaintances are avoiding him. Ills
rage seems to be bearing him up for a
time, and it is hoped that it may not as
sume a violent form. He wanders aim
lessly about the hotel, and his restlesp,
sunken eyes and haggard countenance
plainly Indicate his wretched condition ,
that of a menial and physical
wreck. Ills terrible malady, "softening
of the brain," is Incurable and, may
reach a dangerous aud fatal crisis any
day, and his trie ds are watching him
careful y, although he Is under no re
straint. The alllietioa that now bears so
heavily upon hliu came suddenly, on his
THE NOTABLK HHP
to the Yellowstone l'ark, as the guest of
General Sheridan. The rough jaunts on
horseback that were a m ccsstty ol the
journey produced a physical cisturbancu
which he neglected uutll his subsequent
engagement in Philadelphia. He suffpr d
such pain during a performance ouo
night that he resolved to consult a phy
sician next day. This man examined his
patient and oxelaimed : "Great God! it is
a wonder you are not a dead man after
acting last night In such a condition."
This speech was
a violent shock
to the nervous system of tho actor and
preyed upon him uutll he became morbid
over bin lutliinity. But hid menial de
cay has beeu known to a few lor two
years, and his condition is now said to
be entirely beyond any possible hope.
He can never go upon the stage again,
and efforts are being made ti-day to In
duce the fallen hero to return to his rela
tions in the East. Ho Is possessed ol

How the Gladiator" Was Vanquished.
Chicago, III., October 1. Hundreds
of people wended th Ir way to Mc Vlck
or's Theater last night for tho purpeso ol
witnessing Jihn McCullough's Imperson
ation of tho Gladiator, only to find tho
doors k cked and the theater in darkness.
Yesterday afternoon Messrs. Brooks,
McCullough's ma'wg r, and I'r.cc, his
press ug nt, 'waited upon Mr. McVIckef
for tho purpose of suggesting that the
engagement bo cancelled. They found
the veteran manager In tho same frame
of rnlud and In a few moments It was
decided to cancel all Oatcs and
send iho company to New
York. Notices were accordingly
sent at once to tho theaters Interested
and to the krlnters, newspapers and bill
posters. All this was douo without con
sultation with McCuliougb, and ft was
decided not to br ak tho news too sud
d nly to him. An hour or two lat r,
Mr. Keene, tho tragedian who had boeo
taken into tho conild uco ol Messrs.
Brooks andl'rco, met Mr. McCuf ough
on tho corner of Stato and Mouroo
streets ttandlug In tho shado under a
big umbrella and seemingly having no
purpose In vlow. Thero was no rain
nor Hiun of any. Tho couple greeted
each other cordially. McCuliougb said
he was going to rebearsal that bo had
made a terrlolo break tho night before;
thut ho was informally 1 crvous, and that
evervbody was bounding htm.
"They say I'm a dying man," he said
bitterly. "Bahl why don't they let mo

"You're going toward the dives," said
Yes," rep'ied McCuIlough, bitterly.
'It seems t mo that a dive is just where
I ought to make for."
Finilly he was per-uaded to enter the
theater, and the rehearsal commenced. It
was soon seen th it the act r was totally
unequal to the r de of the Gladiator.
Then Klchelh u was trlol, with the same
result. At this point Mr. McVicker came
on the stage and with Mr. Brooks deli
cately announced to Mr. McCuIlough tho
determination which had been arrived at.
To their surprise he beared a sigh, and
said he was not well enough to play, and
that nobody concerned should lose a cent
I he could prevent it. They went to the
hotel, and Mr. McCuIlough allowed him
self to be put to bed. Manyof hlsfrlends
say that those who saw him on tho
stace Monday night had the last look
at John McCuIlough as an actor. Mr.
Keene says that to have cont nued tho
seas n would have been to threaten his
sanity and his life. It Is admitted by
thi attending physlc ans and a lew In
timate friends, a though tho latter only
breathe it in a whisper, that h Is suffer
ing from paresis, or progresslvj paraly
sis, (tho same ailllctlon which has over
taken Mr. Siorey, of the Chicago Times,)
and that the possibilities of successful
treatment are rendered th? more difficult
by h s self-wil', and his determination to
follow indulgences which can only ag
gravate the complaint.
