SCIENCE IS PUZZLED By "Bends," a Disease of the Tunnel That Afflicts Workmen. (t'levelnid Correspondent Philadelphia North American.) The tragir event of the death of too men at 'ribs 2 of the water works tun nel under Luke Erie has again attracted puiblib a Mention an(] curiosity to a mnal oily that no physician has ever been able in successfully diagnoie. Medical shitnie has biin compelled to recognize the h4i"bens" as it (list iOct f1rm of disease, piculhir only to t1l ( woikitig in tunnels under high prescute. It has no siientific elicignlg ation in the entegory of medical terms. Doctors hate dubbed it the I ihlnds," on account of the bent and stioped attitude of sufferers recovering Ilani severe attacks. The Alen who sap:nd their livem working iIn c'1omttprt'ssed air loiks in submarine and sOttlOtlltatlil It ic:geil hoye bic'ome so a0lustatnt d to the mnalady that it has becomeii a subjeet of jest and thiklulc with thtni. suily at lng Intervals are they triught to i soler realization of ite clanters, htiait nt- of their nttba r Is at tacked and dies in fearful agony before tnmlival attention hin rtach the victhe. Mlon 11.ai never troubled with the io nds" while within the air look. nA workman will tlgave the ltiek in the best if hifits and spirits, in i in anywhere frone five ninies i(toy five hotur he will feel 1 poin in the alves of ace legs. This is the arat itnyptoni and Is quickly ftl lowed by snioilar pain itho armst Tow torturing pangs then jumnp to every part of the body age the victim writhes in agony. The rneitaly consists lif thnersing the sufferer in hot water and subbay tha down with alcohol or chserofomtil linte dnent. To this treatment he generally re sponds and sleep soon restores him to sto nmacal strength and vigor. The dis order is so common with the tunnel lien that scarcely it day passes but one or more t f them are attacked. They suf fgr fearful agony for a time, htun almost invauialy recover in tste to get to work when the change of tshift calle thes to duty. The pains aecompanying the "mends" are very timilar to those of rheumatilm, but sufferers from the "iends" say that they would welcome the most racking tiortures of rheumatism as a blissful ely thuiep as compared with those of the dire disease of the tunnels. It seizes the honmach, causing severe coll. The heart and lungs are afnedtid and the sufferer gasps for breath. He ig hungry for oxy gen, but the heart beats are so weak that what little air the patient receives into his lungs ir all that his respiratory or gans can assimilate. The muscles of the incys and of the body become red and swollen, and In extreme cases the lower extremities become paralyzed. If the paralysis extends to the organs wh the lower bowels, tho age becomes ex tremely dangerous, and death results when it reoaches the heart. Three distinct conditions bearing on rte malady have been observed. The higher the air pressure the longer the workm-n are required to remain in the air look and the degree of ventilation all appear to have' a direct bearing on the fre quency and severity of the attacks. Other observations tend to show that men under 20 years of age are seldom. trouoled with the bends, while between the ages of 20 and 40 the men are more susceptible to the disease in ratio to their years. Men who are stiff in the ar teries and who are :"oubled with anterio sclerosis are also very susceptible to the malady. The same is true of drunkards and of Ofbn whose vitality has been low., ered rimt any cause. One of the two hen who died at Crib 2 this Week, while evidently.Jn the bet of health; WAS a toper who loved his bot tie. The other was a husky, healthy German, but it is believed that his vi tality had been rieduced from want, as his wife and children had been found in a condition verging on starvation, the husband having been out of work for two months before ,he went to work in the tunnel. The city officials are working up a new theory in regard to the disease. A coil of steam pipes will be placed at the en trance to the air lock so that when the men quit work, dripping wet with the damp and the perspiration (.f their labors they will have an opportunity to get warm and dry before taking their long walk through the tunnel to the cage, where they are lifted to the crib at the surface. Dr. F'rederich advances the theory that the men become chilled before they reach the warmth of shelter in the crib. The pores of the skin close: the blood rushes to the internal organs, causing conges tion. The system is then unable to throw off the compressed air that has permeat ed the body, laden with its poisons in the form of carbonic acid gas, which oozes from the soil and pervades the atmos phere inhabited by men and mules with out adequate ventilation. All this is theory, of course, no selen tific investigation ever having been con ducted with any degree of success. The health officer will make a trip to the air lock as eoon as the lee in the harbor will permit of access to the cr1b. He will make a thorough investigation of the conditions under which the men are working, but unless he meets with great rr sueieps than has attended the efforts if others, the mystery of the "bends" will still remain a puzzle to science. There have been half a dozen fatal oses of the "beond' since the operations in the tunnel commenced as many years igo. The last case, prior to those of his week, was about a year ago. Work in the St. Clair tunnel, which was com rileted in 188I, resulted in a number of leaths from a similar disorder. During he laying of the foundation for the piers 'or the St. Louis bridge, the matter was irought to the attention of the health iuthorities, and a fruitless investigation ins instituted. The most thorough research appears to have been conducted by Dr. Knell at the time of the construction of the Blackwell tunnel in England. Dr. Knell brought out the fact that with a ventilation or 12.000 cubic fret per hour, the number of 'ases was lessened, while filth a chang" of air within the lock amounting to 16,00.) ublic feet per hour, no cases at all were reported. In Crib No. 2, the ventilation an(ountt to about 8,000 cubic feet per hour. They have been running a light shift of men, however, and this amount has boon constalered stffilient. The dliii oulty in perfect ventilation rests with the tact that powerful machinery Is required to pump alt' into the tunnel. The tunnelmen themselves are thor oughly convinced of the fact that the 'hends" is a disease of thp bones, and that no power on earth can eliminate it from the conditions of work in com preased air chambers. The health nuthqritles will require a thorough physical examination hereafter before workmen will be permitted to en gage in the dangerous employment. NEWS STORIES BRIULY TOLD eINCINNATI.-A. T.

Notwithstanding the large amount of money received by the shoole each year from the land reserves and other sources, the school funds are always in suffiteenit. This condition will not be remedied until there is an assessment of property In the state which will com pel the railroads and ot'her tax dodgers to pay their just proportion of the taxes. At the present valuation of propqrty the roads are paying taxes on about 10 per cent of the real value of their property, while other people are paying on full value. Must Vote Again.

For years certain portions of Northern Montana Seemed to be without the pale of the law and for years were made the rendezvous of train robbers and out laws who had the decent people so ter rorized that they were afforded a safe asylum and went about unnoticed by officers and unseen by the people. They were unseen because it was to the in terest of settlers not to see them, for seeing meant the killing of men and the burning of houses. rt is to be hoped, however, that with the death of "Long Henry" Thom son, the last of the desperadoes who were wont to make thpt.* home In the northern part of the state, have passed away never to return. The Curry gang is scattered and the last of the Currys is in jail charged with an offense that will probably put him away for many years.
