A SURGICAL LOVE CUKE.
IS NOT PHRENO-OGV MORE THAN
A BARREN THEORY!
A Strange Cane It fee rdinl Id the Note Book
of Dr. Sarnie An Infatuation Extracted
Tliroutfh m Bole in th Skull A Rrruark
Pr. Henry E. Kand.-., who ditxl recently in
Now Vork, whm rcog lized ok at the head and
front of Iiih profession in America.
It was Dr. Sands' p -notice to keep a care
ful and minute recorc of the details of every
surgical case he undertook. On the occasion
of his funeral 1 hud cc-comou to look through
this tome, which hud not theu been removed
from his dok. I wt j struck at the time by
Ibo number of peculiar caws nud tbe orig
inality of his method of treatment
L'ku one ae Or. Sands Ktiitoa that hedis
believed in phreuology. His btatemant was
coupled with the relutinnofa surgical case
which put his unbelief to a severe test.
He was sitting in hiu ofliee one evening
when a man of m.litary appearance was
ubhered in and introd uced himself as Charles
Mui khain, a sculptur. lie was about 85 years
of ago, with a well formed figure.
Ho hud a pale, Intel loctual and rather sensu
ous face, uml niovcxl vith an air of vitality
and force that (rave the impression of a strong
and vigorous tuanbrod. The stranger pro
ceeded at once to biwincss.
"Do you believe in phrenology" be in
quired. Tiie doctor replied t but while lie believed,
of course, that tlio bniin was the organ of the
mind, yet be did not too any seiontilic founda
tion for the allotment of certain functions to
any particular t;pot ii the bruia.
"1 had Iiomh1, sir," respouded Markham,
"lUat you were a follower of Gall and

"A woman who L- divinely fuir, with the
graces of on angel, bin taught me to love her,
and what would male most men happy has
uiudu mo truly miserable, indeed.
"Years ago I registered a solemn vow
never to marry. I buvs never met any one
to make mo wish that such a vow was not
made., until this lovely vision crossed my

"Then 1 feel that I am mad. Mj heart is
"My lips yearn for the lingering kiss of
perfect love. My nrn s grope out as if to seek
opportunity to become entwined around the
matchless form of my queen.
"Every second is t ortui-o. I must be free
from this consuming passiou.
"Cure mo of this horrible fancy, doctor,
and you will make rue the happiest man on
earth, while 1 will i lake yon rich. I will
give all I possess for l cure for love."
Dr. Sands was inclL ted to lie amused at this
strange recital, which he regarded as the ex
pression of a disorder jd mind, but the visitor
was too much in earn jet to be ridiculed.
He tested Markham in various ways until
lie became certain cf his sanity and then
frankly said that he knew of no treatment
that would fit his cast.
Mr. Markham beritiuo furious with rage at
this suggestion and told Dr. Souds that there
was a way in which lie thought be could be
relieved of his burd m. i'brenology taught
it, he said.
According to his id , amativeness, the or
gan of lovu, is situated at the base of the
brain in the liock head, on each skle of the oc
cipital protuberance. When tUo passion is at
its full height this i t of the brain is over
charged with blood, and man theu becomes
the slave of woman a id has an intense yearn
ing to bo near and ca.-eas bur.
Having stated this us his theory, which be
rmpported by citations from the phrenologi
cal theorists, be blunUy asked Dr. Sands to
undertakes an opera ti m for his relief.
Dr. Sands replied that surgery was his
business, and that le would perform any
operation requested of him oxcopt only such
as were of a criminal nature. Neither would
he perform on ojierstion against his Judg
ment by which life would be endangered.
Out be saw no reason why be might not meet
Markham 's wishes. The sculptor was told to
call next day.
THE OrSItATION AND ITS RESULT.
Promptly at the ap -Minted hour Mr. Mark
ham presented himsulf at Dr. Sands' private
hospital for the operation. He smiled as be
stretched himself out on the operating table,
and was soon under t ie influence of ether.
The hair was cut o f the back of the pa
tient's bead. Two V shaped incisions and
flaps were made at the tiase of the skull,
where phrenologists locate the organ of ama
tiveness. The smallest trephine known In surgery,
about a quarter of ait inch in diameter, was
then used to bore two boles through the skull,
exposing the brain, which was in a highly in
The brain w as not punctured, but a leach
was placed at each orifice for a short time,
and a quantity of blood thus removed. The
wound was then d reused antlseptically and
closed with sutures.
Mr. Markham came out of the influence of
the ether in. good shag . After several hours
bad elapsed be was permitted to talk, and
pronounced the operetion entirely successful,
as the thought of tho woman he had loved
brought no more feeling than be bad far
He remained undo- the charge of Dr.
Hands for three weeks, and during this time
was entirely free fror i disturbing sentiments.
The fires of love, he said, were quenched, and
he was supremely ha py.
Dr. Sands saw him from time to time after
he left, and made tv tes of the interviews.
Mr. Markham did n t remain in that serene
frame of mind which followed the operation,
as the intense love of which he complained
came bock to him at Intervals,' suddenly and
with terrible power.
But be bad the ant idote ever at hand, and
leechet applied over the holes in bis skull
soou restored bis equanimity and removed
every amorous thoug at.
These flashes of live become weaker and
weaker as the treat nent was persisted in.
and the lust record iii the note book of Dr.
fjauds shows that the cure was perfect and
the patient healthy.

Something of a Fad Which ITad
but Brilliant Rein.
If a comprehensive history of American
sports is ever written, one of the most inter
esting chapters of tbe work will be that de
voted to the marvelous story of tbe rise and
fall in popular favor of roller skating. No
pastime ever won its way into the good
graces of the public with greater rapidity,
and when the furor or enthusiasm with which
tbe masses greeted tbe new diversion and the
unflagging devotion of its disciples is consid
ered, it cannot be denied that its short lived
reign, its decadence and almost total extinc
tion in America, is no less astounding than its
wonderrul and sudden popularity.
The idea of popularizing the old time snort
of parlor skating by offering the public the
opportunity of Indulging in that jjastime
in commodious and palatial quarters at a
reasonable rate was a novel and attractive
scheme. The English originator of tbe plan
opeued the first rink in Loudon about twenty
years ago. ine enterprise was successful.
and proved a veritable gold mine to its pro
jector, and Instantly a myriad of rinks
sprang up in ail the larger cities of Great
Britain. Many of theso made money for the
proprietors, but for a short time only. The
feverish interest In skating was shortly suc
ceeded by a general apathy on the part of
tbe public which . resulted in deserted rinks
and bankrupt managers.
It was reserved to a widu awake Boston
gentleman to bring about in our western
world a renaissance of tbe pastime. In 1883
Mr. C. M. Raymond, of this city, opened
here in tbe Mechanics' building the first rink
ever started on this continent. TheVenture
was successful beyond bis most, sanguine an
ticipations. Bostouians, ever ready to take
up a new fad, flocked to the rink night and
day, and the city rang with tho praises of the
fascinating sport Kuiks multiplied, and the
coutogion of enthusiasm for the pastime
spread rapidly throughout tbe country. In
three years $.3,000,000 was invested in roller
skating throughout the United States, and
two men in the patent office at Washington
did nothing else but pass patents on roller
skates and improvements. Then the reaction
The sport and its associations were decried
In certain circles, and a vigorous crusade in
augurated against it The consequent speedy
decline is fresh in the mind of the reader.
With the falling away of patronage the rinks
were closed, and the skates, which were sold
for fancy prices, were put on tbe market be
low cost. Even then they found no purchas
ers other than the occasional small boy bent
on risking life and limb on the uneven pave
ment of the city street It would appear
that roller skating as a popular sport was
dead beyond resurrection. Whether the
sport will ever again win its way to tbe
hearts of Americans is a mooted question, but
in a distant quarter of the globe the pastime
lives and flourishes as it never did here. At
the present time the roller skating craze is at
white heat throughout Australia. The peo
ple of that island continent have taken up our
discarded fad and breathed new life into it
Origin of the Dollar.
Tbe word dollar was in our language at
least sou vcars ago. it was used by Shake
speare seveA 1 times. This was in tbe latter
part of the Sixteenth century. It is supposed
that tbe word was at that time in familiar
use in London, having been brought in by the
North German merchants, who managed the
trade on the Uoltic and in Russia.
Dollar appears first in on English dictionary
in 1745. It is a borrowed word, being the
(German "thaler." it is derived from "thai,"
our word dale, or valley; and it means a
daler, or one coming from a valley. The
coins issued by the mint In Joacbimstbal were
called "J oachimstbalers." When other mints
were established the "Joachims" was dropped
and the coins were called simply "tbalers."
Tbe dollar was adopted by coogross as the
unit of our currency Aug. 5, 1735. It was to
contain S75.G4 grains of pure silver; but when
the mint was established, in 1792. the require
ment was reduced to S71.S5 grains of pure
si! ver. l ne coinage or dollars began In 1704.
Our dollar was an adaptation of tho Span
ish milled dollar, which bad been in circula
tion bore from before tbe revolution. It will
be understood that the dollar was described
as a milled ono from the circumstance of its
having the rim notched just as our presont
coins are notched. Tho practice of notching
the rim was adopted to prevent the clippers
of coin reducing its size by taking off a shav
ing all around, as they used to do with Eng
lish coins. All American gold and silver
coins aro milled.
In tbe case of nickel and copper coins the
metal is not valuable enough to prove a
temptation to the clippers, so the edges of
these corns are not milled. xouth s Com

A St, Paul gontleman tells of a lawyer by
the name of Hines who once had the reputa
tion of being the tiost artistic and proliflo
liar in the United Ltates. Whenever Hines
visited a friend, the friend would say, "27ow,
Hines, sit down and tell us a lie." The
lawyer would always vehemently protect
that he was as little addicted to lying as was
the "father of bis country." But in a few
moments be would begin to talk, and when
he began to talk he invariably began to de
velop a remarkable talent for lying. One
time In a company of (rentlemen of which
the St Paul man was one he solemnly stated
that an old sow that he kept on bis premises
had just given birth to a litter of twenty
three pigs. This was too much for any of
them to believe, and they expressed their
doubts as to tbe veracity of his statement
Still he stuck to it. Finally says one of the
party: "Come, Hines, we'll go over to your
house with you and take a look at that litter
of twenty-three pigs." "Oh," says Hines.
havent got them now; I knew the old sow
conldnt take care of such a large family, and
so I killed them all but six." He wasn't tho
kind of a bar that could be caught in that
way. St Paul Pioneer Press.
