Miraculous Image at Milan.
Curious scenes of n ligious fanaticism,
our Rome correspondent says, are tak
ing place in the Mil in cathedral. For
several days an e:;cited crowd has
thronged around a marble Madonna, a
rough work of the fourteenth century,
which is said to have recently perf ormed
miracles by healing blind and lame peo
ple. The crush around the Madonna is
so great that the pol ice have had to in
terfere for fear of accidents happening.

It is New York news that the Duke of
Veragua would accept "Bhould Ameri

Singular Cane of Insanity.
Professor Alfonso Carpentieri, the
famous gynecologist of the University
of Naples, became suddenly insane a
few days ago. He imagined that he was
dying from starvation and thirst, and,
entering a restaurant, drank four cups
of coffee, a bottle of wine, a bottle of
cognac, and ate 15 sandwiches and
more than a dozen eggs. When the
proprietor declined to serve anything
else, the professor sprang on the table
and cried, with the voice of Stentor:
"Eggs, eggs! Give me eggs and keep me
from starving !" When he began to
break chairs and tables, he was over
powered and placed in a hospital. He
is one of the most famous physicians in
Italy. Chicago Times.
