PiiiUDKM'iti.t, Pa., Octobsr 3. A
Fpoclul dispatch to the Times, from York,
l a., suysi ,,Tho publlcutiuu last week of
au account of the restoration of ex-Sher-Iff
Peelliii from a coudltlou of helpless
nohs to appHi'aut strength ttnd vigor by
Edmund . Myers, of this city, bus at
tracted the attention of a argo number
of 'persons who have suffered from
various causes which have
bullied tho.bklll of the legitimate
physician. As it confluence, Mr. Myers
lias beeu overw.icitue I 1 u applications
for relief. Aiiiquk tbe number whose. at
teuiiou was directed to thu potency of
Mr. Myers' tuch was Mr. Jjiiius Ken
nedy, whose home Is at Mo.
Mor h Eighteenth street, Philadel
phia. Mr. Kennedy uriivd lu this
city from Philadelphia lust eventog.
When first seen, his condltou was so pill-
ab e as to provoke the sympathy ol every
bohuldcr. With a heavy caue lu each
hand, hu hobbled alotii; iu a painful mau-
uer that could hardly be called walklug,
Immediately upon arrival be Inquired
lor the residence ol ex-Shrr ff reeling,
and sought coutlrmutiun if the
report published. For more than nine
years, Mr. Kennedy has beeu crippled by
wbut etnloe .t physicians of Philadelphia
prououueed tclatlca. aud for whicn tb. y
iud applied all the kuowu remedies, with
out avail, i Hiding that the trea ment ol
the doctors afforJed him no substantial
reil f, Mr. Kennedy tried, lu turn, every
thing which appeared to preseut a
pruiuise of alleviating his sufferings, not
lurgetllng Hot Spring, Ara., at which
place he receutly s, eut three mouths,
during which time he gave the far-famou
baths the most thorough test.
The effect was dish arienlng, aad the
' ru Merer returned to lu home lu I'hU.i
delphla. Upon reaching this city uDd
assuriug himself by caret ul investuat.o
that tbe published account of Mr. Peel
lug's case cout .lued no misstatement of
tiie fact!), he summoned Mr. Myers to his
hotel. That mysteriously gifted geutlemuu
arrived at a Jute hour lost evening, but
stated that he was .omp eteiy exhausted
from the effects ol a full day's bard travel
to visit patients lu various parts of the
county, that he could not then give ait.
Kennedy's case the attentlou it required
but made an appointment for seven,
o'clock this morning. At the hour nanitir
Mr. Myers viaitcd Kennedy at his room
lu the Ce..tral Hotel. Uy invitation your
correspondent was preseot. Mr. Myers
began by making a number of Inquiries
of bis patient. After satisfying hluuclf
In legard to tho nature of.the trouule.Mr.
Myers began his treatment, which Is re
markable only for
After making a few delicate passes, or
more properly speaklug, tubs over the
atlllcted parts, tbe operator placed oue
haud upon the patient's forehead, aud the
other upon the back of his bead. This
was continued for a few minutes and
then the operator said jocularly, but with
an assurance which was Indicative of bis
owu coutldoicet "I must now say, In
thu lauguago of the Scripture, 'take up
thy bed and walk.' "
Mr. Kennedy obeyed, hesitatingly, at
first, but in ro boldly wh n be discovered
that the task was not dillicult. Marvel
ous as It may appear, It Is nevertheless a
fact, that a man who was yesterday, and
has been for years, a helpless cripple;
who labored palufully along, with half
paralyzed and useless limbs, to-day walk
c i the street and promcuuded theolliceot
tho Central .otel with tho vigor and
buoyancy ol youth aud without a per-1
ceptiblu hult in his gait. Whether ibis
result will be permanent or tbe transitory
r mi t of excitement or mesmeric lu
lluouce, time will toll. ' Mr. Kennedy jubi
lantly relates tho dotalls of his case
to every Inquirer. Taking his two canos
he hobbles aloug syl gt "This Is how
I walked yesterday with two canes."
Then, puttlug dowu ono of tho sticks, ho
demonstrates with tho other how dilli
cult locomotion was with that slight help.
Then ho utrldcs tlrmly up and down tho
long room, klckltuj playfully at different
obj cts aud swinging his cauo In thu air
as though thatartlclo was purely au orna
mental part of his make-up.

Britain's determination to "owu tbe
