after having worked all day with
a' paving gang.

ing apparently naturally, Miss
Agnes Hea, daughter of Arthur
J. tlea, ofMedford, and a senior
in the high school, has been
slumbering in a perfectly un
concious condition for three
weeks, and physicians who are
constantly in attendance are un
able to diagnose her case.
A fit of hysteria, which came
upon her while she was at a
summer hotel at Bar Harbor,
Me., is believed to have brought
on the mysterious malady. She
was stricken with the sleeping
habit in the hotel in Maine and
was brought to her home at 85
Summer Street, Medford.
Pricking the sole of her bare
feet with pins and other such
harsh expedients have been tried
without avail by the physicians.
