Can man or woman in ordinary good
health be killed by sudden fright just as by a

The burden of opinion is on the side of the
theory that even the most hearty person can
die of the shock caused by fright. It seems
that It has been Impossible to diagnose one of
these cases. Fright, if it causes death, leaves
no peculiar marks by which the character of

With him. Visit mailn at a mimhnr of
ew ors hospitals and dispensaries showed
that the physicians in these institutions
nearly all take the same ground.
MmcrLTiEH or an autopsy.
The physician who spoke mos freely on
the subject was ConcUct W. Cutler, who has
charge of the New York dispensary, the old
est In New York city, and one in which some
123,000 patients are treated every year for
all manner of diseases. Dr. Cutler is an ex
pert in norvous disease and rrnks high among
pathologists. He is decidedly of the opinion
that persons In good health can die from sud
den fright, although, he says, that in his
opinion such cases are extremely rare.
"It is a question that has been widely
studied and discussed, and one which has
been the subject of so much controversy in
medical journals. But a majority of phy
sicians now agree that fright may be set
down as a cause of death unassisted by any
"But is there not usually some other com
plication? some heart or nervous trouble or
some other organic weakness?"
"Not necessarily. Of course in most cases
there U, but death might result from fright
alone even if there existed uo organio trou
ble . Nor has the mere physical strength of
a man or woman much to do with the mat
ter. A small weak womun is frequently less
affected by these shocks than a strong man.
'You see," continued the doctor, "there la
something peculiar in the make up of a man
or woman. There are strong men who can
not endure the sight of blood. There are
men even in the medical and surgical profes
sions who never become reconciled to some
of the more disagreeable tasks that they are
called upon to perform. Then again there
are others physically weak who have nerves
of steel, and who delight in the most difficult
"But how can it be determined that a par
son has died from fright alone C
"From eeneral conditions." sa!l thnAnr-tnr
"Of course there is no means of defining the
cause 01 a earn as in case ol death by ordi
nary causes. So far no lesions have been
found on the brain that would make clear the
action of the shock upon that organ. Nor
are there any other marked conditions that
enable one to make a aatisfactnrv mitstmnr
In fact I have never been called upon to do
so, aitoougn i nave watched the discussion of
this question with interest But to make it
plain. It is agreed that where it is known that
a parson has been subjected suddenly to a
severe shock, where it is subsequently found
that the person had In life suffered from no
disease and where it is also found that at the
time of death the organs were in a normally
healthy condition, it would appear at once
that death was the result of fright. You
know alcoholism is put down as a cause of
death, and yet it was but the other day that
a prise was offered for any paper that would
establish the existence of lesions on the brain
that would prove that alcoholism alone Is a
cause of death."
"But Is not death from fright very rarer
"Extremely so," was the reply. "As I have
said, I never had one come under my per
sonal observation, although I believe that
such deaths sometimes occur.
"Thar are," continued Dr. Cutler, "cases
when persons suffering from heart troubles
have had death hastened by some sudden
fright or shock, but even these cases are not
"Bnt is not Insanity sometimes the result
"Sometimes, but it is more frequently
caused by some other kind of severe shock.
But both causes produce but a small percent
age of cases. Insanity, as a rule, is caused
by drunken parents or is inherited. On the
whole, this is an important question, and one
m which pathologists generally are naturally
Interested and concerned. If It be possible
to finally settle the question whether a person
can be frightened to death or not something
Important will have been done. It is a com
mon thing to say one has been frightened to
death, but there is not much in the phrase.
As a rule, fright, unless it be an extreme
case, does not affect healthy grown persons.
Children subjected to extreme fright are fre
quently driven into convulsions, just as
women are driven into hysterics. But there
is not much fear of death, even in such rases."
"You do not think fright alone is worth
considering very seriously as a cause of death
la this country r
"No; but the human frame is a queer ma
chine and anything that bears on any of Its
organs is worth studying. The nervous sys
tem is a peculiar one. You may place a
strong man among lunatics and leave M"t
where he will come into constant contact
with them long enough and his mind will be
come affected by his amociatiuu with the in
sane. "It has been noticed, too, tliat one child in
school, if afflicted with tit. Vitus' danco, will
cause other children about him or her to be
come affected to some extent. One nervous
twitching person in a room where others are
sitting will cause others to become nervous
as well We are to a very great extent a
nervous people, and it is necessary to study
every phase of it. It is Lure that the im
portance of the question of death from fright

.An Australian prince, who was also an
archbishop, swore horribly at a banquet,
and perceiving that Saphir, the celebrated
Austrian wit, looked at him in surprise,
angrily asked the cause of his astonishment
"I thought an archbishop would not allow
himself to swear." answered the wit "1 was
not swearing as an archbishop, but as a
prince," explained the prelate. "Ah," said
Baphir, thoughtfully, "but suppose the devil
fetches the prince, what will become of the

There is a "fad" in nursemaids, and liter
ally will it be a "cold day" for the sharp eyed,
keen witted "bonne," If the Russian maid, a
new departure In service, meets with the
favor she anticipates. Tho Knssian nurse
maid is already an imposing feature in more
than one aristocratic household. To look at
she is all that is delightfully picturesque. She
wears a long, loose garment of deep blue
cloth, bordered with a hand of crimson, and
on her head is the veritable Russian head
gear, a creation of much puffed white tulle,
from which depend, all the way to the bot
tom of the skirt, two wide lengths of crimson
moire ribbon. So looks the Russian maid;
how acts the Russian maid reniains to be fur
ther tested. - So far, though, she has been
found trustworthy and capable. Another
fashion, "a la Ruses," is that of dressing chil
dren for outdoor exercise entirely in white
wool and white fur. The little ones, so ar
rayed, look like tiny wraiths as they speed
along over the frozen ground through the

The following sensible remarks and
timely suggestion on the tramp question
are from the Pulton Journal:
The number of tramps is increasing.
Whether they are tramps from necessity
or choice is an undecided question. It is
probable that many of them were honest,
industrious men, who started in search of
work and not finding it were forced to
adopt the methods of the professional
tramp to obtain the necessities of life
It is an indisputable fact that there, re
tramps ana without asking whyvfT high
protective tariff does notsSord them
work at living wages. leVs see what can
be done to lesseniheir number and

provides a place for them to sleep and
a place to get something to eat, it will
soon be overrun by professional tramps.
it no piace is provided for them to sleep
or obtain food, many honest men in
search of work are forced to go hungry
and sleep in outbuildings. It the cities
and villages would provide a suitable
place for them to sleep, clean, wholesome
food for them to eat, and then compel all
applicants to work five hours on the
streets or at any other public work for
the food and lodging, it would be an im
provement on the present condition of
affairs. The professional tramp does not
like to work and will give that city a
wide berth, while the honest man looking
for work will take pride in paying for bis
food and lodging by going to work. It
is a shame in this land that men willing
to work should be forced to go unhoused
and unfed. It is also a shame that the
able bodied, professional tramp is allowed
to wander through the land begging, un

It Pay t Advertise.
The Kansas City Gazette tells the crack
story in regard to the wonderful results
of advertising. A family down in Flori-
da is said to have lost one of their chil
dren. After failing to find it for two
days, they put a twenty-five cent notice
in a local paper and the next morning
they were surprised to see an alligator
upon the door step, where be had dis
gorged the lost child alive and then died
himself. They Bold the alligator's hide
for $5, and the parents are exhibiting the
child in a dime museum for $50 per week.
This story illustrates the great value of
advertising. It also illustrates the writer
as a painstaking liar.

Is so vastly superior to any other sarsa
parilla, or blood purifier, that one has well
said: "Its health-giving effects upon the
blood and entire human organism, are as
much more positive than the remedies of
a quarter of a century ago, as the steam

and laborious drudgery of years ago."
"While suffering from a severe bilious
attack in March, 1883, a friend In Peoria,
IU., recommended Hood's Sarsaparilla. I
tried the remedy, and was permanently
cured." J. A. Sbefard, travelling agent for
Devoe & Co., Fulton Street, N. Y.

"I was for five years a sufferer wis.
boils, all run down, and was at one time
obliged to give up work. Before taking
allot two bottles of nood's Sarsaparilla, was
entirely cured." E. M. Lane, Pittsburgh, Ta.
I was severely afflicted with scrofula,

cured." C E. Lovejoy, Lowell, Mass.
