Mrs. Ada A. Hill, Christian Scientist, Caroil
a l'utluiit of Paralysis by Suggestion.

ena?Other Cases of tho Saino Kind.
Wlllhnn Lochrldgo of Austin wns 6ccm
Ingly dying on a recent Sunday. Physl
ciuns said he could live only a few hours.
On tho second morning aftor ho partook
of a hearty breakfast, and today ho is well
und able to attend to business. Ho is a
traveling man and has a wide acqunint
anco in tho south. For four months ho
Buffered with spinal paralysis. During |
that time bis legs wore utterly devoid of :
feeling and useless.
His cure is attributed to tho power of
Mrs. Ada A. Hill, a Christian Solenco
bonier of Pooria, Ills.
About t!;o middle of April this year ho
was at a hotel in Houston, .lust after ho
bad finished bis supper he was stricken
with paralysis and fell to the Hour, unable
to move or walk. Ho remained at the
hotel for several weeks, attended by Dr. J.
H. Sampson. No improvement was no?
ticeable, and finally bo was removed to his
homo in Austin.
His case was then taken in charge by
Dr. J. W. McLaughlin, and for many
weeks he visited the houso daily. Aug. U
tho condition of Mr. Lochrldgo became
much worse, and ten days later he lost tho
powers of sight and speech. Ho sank
rapidly, and Sunday, Aug. 2:2. tho physl
olun informed Mrs. Loehrldge that her
husband's death wub only a matter of a
The anxious wife was seated by tho bed?
side. With a mighty effort Mr. Lochrldgo
motioned for a pencil und paper. They
wore given him, and on tin; paper he
scratched tho name of Mrs. Hill, with n
request that she ho tolegraphed concerning
his case. Word was Immediately sollt to
Peoria. In reply Mrs. Hill wired that sbo
would treat him from 0 to 7 o'clock that
evening and botweon the samo hours tho
A few minutes after tl o'clock Sunday
evening tho patient turned over on the
bod, something ho had not been able to do
for months. Ho held up his hand to his
wife and then resumed his former posi?
tion. All night his faithful wife sat by
tho bed, watching for tho faintest signs of
recovery or improvement.
Concerning subsequent ovnnts Mrs.
Lochrldgo tells tho following story:
"Tuesday morning shortly niter 7 o'clock
Mr. Lochrldgo again turned over in his
bed and bold up both hands to me. I took
them in mine, and to mysurpri.se they felt,
natural, except that smno parts of the skin
Were dry and hard. I felt of his legs. IIo
opened his eyes. The numbness was gone,
and he could feel my touch.
"I asked him to speak to me, and in his
effort I noticed a slight gurgling sound In
his throat. I still pleaded for him to say
something, and he motioned for a drink of
water. I then said to him,'If you can
drink water, you can talk, now, can't
your' And immediately ho said:
" 'Why, of course I car..'
"Ho then rniscd up in bod nnd sat on
the side, permitting his legs to hang down,
and ho began to moyo thoin and to talk to
me. I was almost dnmfounded. You
can imagine my utter surprise at seeing
him so like himself again after wo hud
bad tu carry him from his cot to bis bed
during tho last four months."
Mrs. Hill, to whom his recovery is at?
tributed, wns in Austin several years ago
and performed cures of a similar nature,
and in his extremity tbo dying man ap?
pealed to her.
Thomas day Hudson of Washington ac?
counts for cures of this kind by his law of
psychic phenomena. What tho in w of grav?
itation is to astronomy, what tho atomic
theory is to chemistry, Hudson's bypoth
HRS ada a. HILL,
esis is to psychology. This is tho au?
thor's claim, aud in support of this decla?
ration he Is able to cite, a hundred examples.
Mr. Hudson's hypothesis is based on this
discovery, which, ho says, has been dem*
oust rated beyond the. possibility of a
doubt?"that hypnotic subjocts are con?
stantly amenable to tho power of Sugges?
tion; that suggestion is the all potent fac?
tor in the production of all hypnotic phe?

tho right to assume that man has two

designate the ono as tho objective mind
and the other as tbo subjective mind.

another. That is the wholo thing. Think
you lira well, and you are well.
"The llrst case," says Mr. Hudson in
his book, "was that, of a relative who bad
for many years been alllicted with a nerv?
ous trouble, accompanied by rheumatism
of the most terrible character, llo was
subject to the most excruciat ing spasms
during bis nervous attacks of rheumatic
trouble and was frequently brought to tbo
verge of the grave. Ho had been undor
tbo caro of many of tho ablest pnysiclnns
of this country and Europe, finding only
occasional temporary relief. An Idea of
tho sufToring which ho endured may be
imagined from thofact that one of his hips
had been drawn out of joint, by which tho
leg had been shortened about two inches.
This, however,had been partially destroyed
by physical appliances before tho psychic
treatment began. In short, he was a hope?
less Invalid, with nothing to look to for
relief from his Bufferings but death.
"Tho treatment began on the lfith of
May, 181)0. Two persons wore informed
of tho proposed experiment, and were asked
to notu the time when tho treatment be?
gan. They were pledged to profound se?
crecy, and to this day the patient is not
aware that ho was mado tho subject of an
experiment in psycho therapeutics. After
the lapse of a few months ono of the per?
sons Intrusted.with tbo secret mot tho In?
valid and learned, to her surprise and do
light, that ho was comparatively well.
When asked when ho began to Improve,
bis reply was, 'About the middle of May.'
Since then he has been able at idl times to
attend to the duties of bis profession?that
of a journalist nnd magazine writer?and
ban bad no recurrenco of the old trouble.
"Of course this may have been a coin?
cidence, aud bad it stood as a solitary in?
stance that would havo been tho most ra?
tional way of accounting for It, but n hun?
dred such coincidences do not happen in
succession without u single break, and
more than a hundred experiments have
been made by this process by myself and
two other persons, and not n single failure
has thus far been experienced where tho
proper conditions have been observed. In
two cases tbo patients havo not been per?
ceptibly benefited, but In both of those
they wore notified of the intended experi?
ments and were profoundly skeptical, but
these failures cannot bit charged to tbo ac?
count of this method of treatment, for the
simple reason that tho fundamental prin?
ciple of tho systcm was deliberately violat?
ed?that is to say, tho best conditions were
not observed, In that the patient was in?
formed beforehand of what was intended.
In such cases tho dealer Is handicapped by
probable adverse autosuggestion.
"Ono fact of peculiar significance con?
nected with tho enso of rheumatism men?
tioned must not be omitted, and that is
that tho patient was u thousand miles dis?
tant when tho cure was performed."
