Experiments of Dr. Macdougatl of America In Weighing Dying Fer sons Declared Inconclusive and Not to Be Taken 8erlously. ' "There Is a popular notion that tun weight of tha living body Is less than that of the dead one," says a writer In the Lancet. "In a recent Issue of thi Pioneer Mail a correspondent dter.jrs es this question in connection with tho behavior of a crocodile which ho shot dead while It was basking nrlcop on a qulck.4r.nd. "When shot the crocodiio bepnn to sink and almost disappeared before It could be reached. The correspond ent Is cleurly inclined to accept thu popular colon of an Increase in weight at death but for tho fact that recent experiments undertaken by torno learned authorities in America havo proved that a dead bod;- was lighter than a living one. From thin they (th learned authorities) deduce that the eon! fcai! n definito welj'.t tit poai.ds avtirdr.pols. "It Is po'tiVe with the er.priinient i to which the correspondent of tho I'lo.iei r Mall r.ft-r?. They were mad- und recorded u few years r.o Ijy .Dr, Dur.cnn MHiccrxrJl fif Haverhill, Maos. l'ni;enls-"v.'ore weighed In h , act of dyiiiK. The scales used icco-l-ed any Increase or decrease beyom! the fifth of an ounce not a particu larly delicate Instrument for esUnuvt ln the weight or that part of th llv- ' in? brdy which Is usuall." regarded as ' inipiaterlal and imponderable. "In the first of a series ol" six ex- ; perlmeiitti. Dr. MacdouKall cied a man dylnc from pulmonary tuberculo sis on the scales. Tho patient lost weight at tho rate of one-sixteenth cl an ounce per minute until tho moment of death, when the beam end dro ped with an audible stroke, showing a sudden decrease of three-quarto's of an ounce In weight. Wfc-,t was the cause of tho sudden decrease? Dr. Macdougall, after excluding the loss due to escape of breath and fluid con- ; tents of the body by evaporation or . other natura'. means, concluded that the marked and sudden decrease was duo to escape of the 'soul substance.' In this' particular Instance tile soul was evidently a very material ono, weighing three-quarters of an ouncu. ' "rrl Tomi-vtar extended his ob servations to dogs. Ua tie K'amu gained were mgutive. At the moment of death, 'the' dog's body refused to show any alteration In weight. We are of the opinion that the correspondent , of the Pioneer Mail in seeking to explain the disappearance of tho idiot crocodile In the quicksand neci not. take his 'learned authorities' too se-' rlously. Dr. Mactlougall's " observa tions are to be explained by a peculiar bias on the part of bin scales or on tho part of his friendw, who asslatuil him. At least, tho scales lised by other Investigators havo refused to reveal any sudden diminution in the weight of the body at death.' t lu the actual acceptation of the term death occurs when respiration and cir culation have ceased, but In a more strict sense the death of the body Is gradual, the muscular system, for In stance being really alive some hours after the apparent death of the indi vidual." Tired Watches. Chrifcllan H. Stroh, a St. Loula Jow-' eler, In speaking of watches, said: "I suppose you don't know that, watches, like human beings, ' some times don't go for the very reason they are tired out. and need resting. Sometimes a watch Is brought to mo which is all right. Nothing about' it is out of order, und It is fairly cl.'an.. When they become sulky and rofuso to run, except by fits and starts, thu best thing to do is to lay them aside for a good rest. . ( "The mechanism of a tired watch seems to be In perfect condition, but it Just won't work. Tho fact is that long and faithful service baa thrown It slightly out of adjustment lu perhaps a doren places. Scraping and clean lug and readjusting a fine watch In the worst thing that could be done to it. A month's rest will cause tho works slowly to readjust tnemselveu, and at the end of that time, after care ful oiling, the watch will go as cheer, fully as ever." 1 Reckless In the Quest for News. "Gosh!" remarked old "Hen" Oinin, jno of the oldest Inhabitants of North Ha den, Intl., "don't it beat all get out what them Chicago papers'll do fur news! One of 'em went so far an to call up on the telephone, clean from Chicago, the other day t'askllayden Charlie's wife, you kuow a fjuetitlon about a relative of her'n. It must a' cost him I mean tho leller who done the caliln' a good piece of niouoy, 'cause nere wo are n good thjtty-flyo miles from tho city." Chlc.-.go Now a. All Hope Not Lost. "Has her marriage to the count n iilly been Indefinitely postponed?" "Yes; thoro was some, little miuuii-. del-standing, I believe-." "Put does the i.iUi-.inderstundiyij ainoni'.t to much?"
