. There are living many men yet In the
prime of life who distinctly remember tbe
charming, world rioted adventuress, Lola
Moo tea. There is living today a man
prominent In Sew York society, the head
of a great banking institution and the
director and advisor In many rich corpora
tions, whose life was nearly wrecked by
this woman. His salvation was due to the
Intervention of friends rather than to his
own foretbooght or will power, for he had
become not only tbe dupe bnt the slave of
this most fascinating woman.
It is not a little remarkable that tbe
origin of somoof tbe most famous bistorlo

amazing audacity of tbeir career)).
Tbe right name'of this woman, if in
deed sho bad a logol right to any name
but that of her more unknown and equally
mysterlona mother. Is uncertain, but It is
believed to be Gilbert. She said her name
was Maria Dolores Eliza Kosanna Gilbert,
and that ber father was aootebman, cap
tain in the Knglish service, and her moth
er a Spanish Creole born in New Orleans.
In some cf ber latest writing she substi
tuted the name Porris for Bosanna, and
while at first she claimed that she was
born in Scotland In 181? in her later years
she declared that she was born in 1830 In
If Captain Gilbert, the father of Lola
Montez, was not a myth, he was a scamp,
for although Lola speaks of him In a clover
fiction intended to bo ber autobiography
there is no evidence of his appearing on

Tbo mother Is said to have been very
beautiful. She appeared la England while
ber child was but little more than an in
fant. In London this woman taught
singing, dancing, Spanish and French, so
that ber daughter came naturally by
those accomplishments that subsequently
brought her into such great prominence.
Lola Mod tea was of medium height,
beautifully formed, and at tbe age of 19
was sought for by artiste as a model. Her
hair was long, thick, silky and of the blue
black hue that denoted the Spanish ances
try of which she was so proud. Her com
plexion waa a warm olive and ber eye. a
dark bluisn gray. Her features were
neither regular nor classical, but were full
of changing expression. Uer mouth was
perfect, ber teeth even and white and ber
forehead low and broad, but the charm, so
potent with ber that it made peasants and
princes her slaves, lay in her bewitching

who had already won metropolitan noto
riety by her original and grooeiul dancing,
married Captain James of the Knglish
army. A short time before this her
mother, whoso reputation in London was
far from enviable, and who was still a
handsome woman, crowned an erring
career by running away with a married
man, an attache of the Spanish embassy to
tbe court of at. James.
Captain James iiu mediately after bis
marriage was sent to India, and be took
bis wife with him. At first she seemed to
be a model of all tbe proprieties, for she
could look and act like a nun when she
chose, but eoon after reaching Calcutta
her inherited and cultivated tendencies as
Young, beautiful and strangely accom
plished, Lola soon became a great social
favorite In the Indian capital and tbe
toast of all the gny young officers at then?
clubs. Although the European society in
India was much less constrained than In
London yet Lola Montcs's contempt for
the ordinary proprieties eoon brought ber
name into unenviable prominence. Her
daring flirtations became tbe talk of tbe
city. Soon women dropped her, ana even
single men feared to have their names as
sociated with hers.
. At length Captain James' patience be
came exhausted. Failing to check the
scandalous eocentriclties of his wife, a se
rious quarrel took place. Tbe result was
that without a word of warning Mrs.
James packed up her belongings and in
formally started back to Europe.
She went directly to Paris, where she At
once found employment as a Spanish
dancer, and here lur tbe first time she ap

well known name of Ixla Montez, or tbe

She was now about 83 years of age and
la the very prime of a tropkwl, vigaroos
womanhood. Lola Moo tee began dancing
In an obscure place of entertainment, but
so great was ber power of fascination ana
so undoubted ber abUit? a a dancer that
soon managurs were bidding exorbitant
sums for her aervicea, aad the gay Paris
Inae were disooaaing bar as a zoodorn woav

that tome day she might be able to show
that .be bad a right to the throne.
- From Parle ber fame spread through
Europe, and it was planned to take ber on
A starring tour through all tbe gnat capi
tals, but aba got no farther than Munich,
tae capital of Havana.
Lola Montez, though Always improvi
dent, was At this time comparatively rich.
Her income was about 12, MO a week, and
tbe jewels presented to ber might well
have excited the envy of a queen. She
bad a retinue of servant, and she took
with her from Paris her own coach and
four. . -
At this time Munich, the capital of In
dependent Bavaria, was, next to Paris,
tbe gayest, most brilliant and corrupt cap
ital tn r n rope, ana ixrais i was its king.
Her fame bad preceded ber, eo that the
advent of Lola Montez to Munich partook
of tbe nature of an ovation. Tbe students
of tbe university turned out to meet ber,
bands serenaded her tbe night of ber ar
rival, and tbe public prints, half in loke
and half in earnest, called her "the un
crowned queen of Bavaria, " little dream
ing tbe prophecy there was in the compli
The first night she appeared at the the.
ater tbe king was in the royal box. From
tbe instant heseteycaon "the great Span
ish dancer," as she was called, Louis of
Bavaria became ber slave, destined to re
main so till his kingdom was shaken to
its foundations, and In the upheaval that
followed he was shaken from the throne. -
A woman of stronger principles and
with more stability of character than Lola
Montez might have been tempted by the
dazzling prospects before ber when she saw
the king of Bavaria at her foot. But this
was tbe game she was playing for, and, if
surprised at all, it was at the ease with
which she accomplished ber end.
The king proposed to marry ber, but as
loon as be hinted at his purpose the min
istry was up in arms.
Not daring to run counter to tho wishes
of his subjects, Louis gave up all thoughts
of an open marriage, but to free his favor
ite from the charge of being a plebeian he
determined to confer on ber the title of
countess of Landsfeld. Against this his
ministers protested. Not only Munich,
but the whole of Bavaria, took sides, and
so bitter and stubborn did the fight become
that ITinio Minister Abel and all his asso
ciates in the king's cabinet resigned.
At this time a large sum of money wits
raised by the nojjlos and rich men of the
kingdom, who were auxious to save tbnir
nation and sovereign from disgraco, and
with this they tried to bribe Lola Montez
to leave the country forever. Her scorn
ful reply was:
"I can win all the money I care for in
any city I'gn to, bur where can I go to gut
another king's love?"
And now the students, who bad wel
comed her at first, took sides, the majori
ty hooting ber when she appeared on tbe
Btreets, for at this stage of affairs she had
given up her publie dancing.
Infuriated at tbe students, the king,
acting on the advice of Lola Montez, it U
said, closed the university and threw into
jail the student leaders. By this time the
kingdom was not only stirred to its depths,
but in many of the provinces the sturdy
Germans broke into open revolt.
Too late the infatuated Louis discovered
that for the sake of an unknown adven
turess he bad thrown away the regal in
heritance of his fathers. The rebellion
reached tbe capital, and to save himself
the king was forced to abdicate and seek
Kfugo in an out of the way castle.
Lola Montez was not permitted to accom
pany the king, but she was warned to
leave Bavaria at once. Consulting her
own safety, she fled to London, where
for some months she lived in seclusion.
After vain efforts to renew communica
tions with the dethroned king Lola Mon
tez, wholly indifferent to the fact that she
bad never been divorced from ber first bus
band, who was still living, married anoth
er English officer, named Captain Heald.
She lived with Heald a short time, when,
learning that she was about to be prose
outed for bigamy, she fled to Madrid.
She at first thought of entering a con
vent, but changing ber mind she sold
most of ber jewels and started for Austra
lia. Her mental gifts and versatility can
be Imagined from the fact that on the ship
she prepared a series of lectures descriptive
of her own stirring life and delivered these
with great success and profit to the auti
podeans. Lola Montez soon exhausted Australia.
Her success there led her to believe that
she could win in tlw United States, so she
sailed for California.
She bad not been in San Francisco six
weeks when sho met and married a Mr.
Hull. This she could now do without
fear, as both James and Heald were dead.
Her married life with Hull was charac
teristically brief. She inuurinud him
wealthy, and he was well off when they

first met, but there was bat little perma
nency In California fortunes in those days.
"lean support One, but not two," she
said to Hull when oho good naturally
unae farewell in San Francisco.
Again adrift, poor and friendless, this
remarkable woman made her war to New
Orleans, where she again resumed ber
iKinnng. ner success was far from en
eooraging. With failins health she made
her way to New York, preceded by tbe
story of ber remarkable career. There she
tried writing and did publish a work on
"Woman. Love and Sniritualism." which
bad a larger sale than Its literary value
Her winnbw wars remained with ber.
And in tbe day of ber sore distress kind
friends were not wanting. For tbe Last
year of her life she was dependent on char
ity. She died In Astoria, K. Y., In tbe
lorry-Bm year of her age, and a plain

A chair of peyeho-theraMUtiOB, or hyp
notism, is on Innovation, in tbe curricu
lum of tbe Illinois Medical college, at Chi
cago. The official recognition of hypno
tism in medical colleges Is common enough
abroad, but is new to this country. Br.
Herbert A. Parkyn, recently of Mlnneano-
Jis, fills tbe new chair. Dr. Parkyn claims
to nave hypnotised more persons than any
physician in the country. He estimates
the number of patients whom be-has treat
ed by hypnotism within the hast two years
at 1,200. r I
Dr. Parkyn is a native of Toronto and
received a medioal education at Queen's
university, Kingston, Ont. He afterward
did postgraduate work at tbe Mcill Med
ical college, Montreal, and also at tbo To
ronto university. Early in but course be
became Intensely interested in and made a
special study of the nsycholoiry of atten
tion and strove to develop his knowledge
of tbe science of hypnot ism throughout his
entire course. Dr. Parkyn determined to
make a specialty of psycho-therapeutics and
At the close of his college course practiced

ronto. In 1804 be went to Minneapolis.
whore be became connected with the Uni
versity of Minnesota.
- Dr. Parkyn entertains very pronounced
opinions on the relations between hypno
tism and crime: "That point has been
abused most shamefully. It bos been
handled by Ignorance, misapprehension
and narrow mlndedness. There is no
closer relation between hypnotism and
crime than there is between tbo waking
state and crime, in fact, tbe relation is
exactly tbe same. A man's true moral
nature can never be hypnotized. Natural
criminals might be incited to crime while
hypnotized, but they could also be induced
to commit tbe same act while tn the wak
ing state. A practical criminal sukkcs-
tion given to a pure minded subject will
cause bis moral nature to so revolt at the
critical time that he will be thrown out of
the hypnotic condition into bis objective
J sea. i know this to be true from hun
dreds of experiments which I have made
personally. In fact, I have made this sub-
DR, HERBERT A. PARKTK.
Jeot a special study. I have run down ev
ery sensational newspaper story bearing on
tbe subject of hypnotism and crime and
have invariably found It tbe work of some
irresponsible correspondent. Tbe stories
were barefaced lies as far as tbe Influence
of hypnotism for evil was concerned.
. "I carried on an exhaustive series of
experiments in this line at St. Paul last
winter and came very near getting a se
vere thrashing from a printer to whom I
suggested while be was In tbe hypnotic
state that be assassinate a physician pre.
ent and steal his watch. Tbe same condl
tion of moral sleeplessness prevails In
women as well as men. If I wished a
crime committed, I would have to take a
person who would do it while In pontics
sion of his objective senses, for-1 never
could induce him to do it otherwise, even
though he were to all appearances com
pletely under my control. The laws gov
erning this science are like oil tbe rest of
nature's laws, as strict and rigid as tbe
law of gravity, and they never foil. When
our jurists study these laws for themselves
tbe names of hypnotism and crime will
forever cease to be linked together. '
'What diseases have you found to be
benefited by hypnotic treatment?"
"Every physician who understands the
mind uses tbe element of suggestion In his
treatment more or less. Personally I have
used hypnotism with great success in all
kinds of nervous troubles. Including epi
lepsy, stammering, St. Vitus' dance, hys
teria, asthma, rheumatism, sciatica and
neuralgia. I have controlled the headache
of typhoid fever, and it Is positively mar
velous in curing that dread of all dread., a
sick headache, for tbe patient is taught to
put himself to sleep instantaneously. No
matter how short thai sleep, the result is
wonderful. I am also using hypnotism
largely to control opium, cocaine and alco
holic inebriety. A most profound state
of anestbesla can also be produced by
hypnotism, and in this way many opera
tions have bean performed on patients who
could not stand chloroform or ether."
"I)o you hare any particular way of pro
"Oh, no. One must study tbe peculiar
ities of bis patient nrst. Some meant
will succeed in one ease and fall in ao

on tbe state, out tney an aim at tbe essi

and solely upon a single thought or thing.
Sometimes I have to work long and hard
before I find the sorest and quickest way
to hypnotize a patient, ana, again, I am
likely to bit upon a plan that will gat aim
la one minute.
"The profession has been slow to remw
nice hypnotism in any form, but It is now
being surely brought into tbe prom ins.
la which it should stand. At tbe last
meeting of the American Medical s serai
tion in Baltimore it was for the first tltae
officially reonfrnizad in thla country as a
therapeutic agent. When those staid and
learned old practitioners who read paa
at that gathering took up hypnotism, even
