Some of the Wonder of Hypnotism
Its Use as an Anaesthetic.
St. Locis, Mo., April 13. The Sisters ol
the Visitation report a miracle whicji was
performed in their midst lust Thursday
morning. For the last five years Sisler
Mary Philoinena has suffered from what
was believed an abscess of the brain. She
bled from the nostrils, eyes and ears, the
blood dripping from them for hours. Par
tial blindness resulted from these
attacks. Recently Dr. Adolph AH,
the attending physician, gave u$
all hope of recovery " unless an
operation was performed. The sister .
was given the right to choose for herself.
Her decision was that before she would
submit to . an cperatiou she would ask
that "novenas" be said to the blessed sia
ter Mary Margaret in her behalf. She djd
not ask for prayers for her recovery, but
simply that "God's will be made plain to
A Lucky Mistake for the Sister.
Tuesday morning Sister Baptista visited
the sick nun in her cell and offered up a
"novena" in private prayer. She ilso
gave her a relic, a piece of linen worn by
Sister Mary Margaret hundreds of years
ago, and a phial of holy water with
which to bathe her bleeding eyes. In 8
paroxysm of pain Wednesday night
Sister Philomena swallowed the
blessed relic. When she awoke
Thursday she felt of a strange pricking
just above her left eye. Lifting her hand
to the spot she fe'.t a metallic substance,
which she grasped and pulled out. It was
a needle, and transfixed on its point was ;
the linen relic that the sister had swal- '
lowed the night before. The truth of this
marvelous miracle is vouched for by Dr.
Alt and the mother superior. How the
needle ever entered or reached the place
where it was found Is unknown.
HYPNOTISM AS AN ANESTHETIC.
Interesting Kxperiments at Bellevue
Hospital, New York City.
Xew York, April 13. Professor John
K. Kennedy, the hypnotist, gave some
interesting experiments Friday at Belle
vue hospital to show the value of hypno
tism as an anaesthetic. A subject was
hypnotized and a needle and yajrd of
thread pushed through his tongue, and he
seemed to enjoy it. Then the needles was
forced through the subject's cheek with
out apparent pain. The last o these ex
periments consisted in inforaiiug the sub
ject that his tight arm was dead, after
which the lighted end of a cigar was held
against his arm until the flash sizzled, the ;
subject exhibiting no sigh ot pain.
He Wanted More Beer.
It was unquestionably a scientific tri
umph for Trofessor Kennedy. Afterward
his subjects ate red pepper for ice cream,
and nibbled daintily on raw onions as a
substitute for pound cake. The largest
and hottest kind of green peppers were
devoured ravenously under the impression
that they were choice Sicilian figs. One
subject drank four ounces of castor oil,
only to smack his lips and ask for "more
beer." The climax of the entertainment
was an imaginary yacht cruise in which
three subjects participated. It termin
ated in a shipwreck, and the diving of the
three voyagers head foremost upon iha
parlor floor, followed by a desperate swim
