The lateet genlna of this atamp is a eirll ea
gineer named Oatchkowsky. Some time n--> he
iient to Ttirkestan, to work on the Tranacaaplan
rallroad. On his return h* had a Wd-derful tale
to telL He had, in the 808188 ol his t.avels, near
the boadet of Thiliet entered a bitherto iinknown
country, "where frngments of forgotten people
dwlt." They wt-re people who never fell ill,
and never grew old. Struck with B_ua_nwnt|
he asked tho secret of their perpetaal health. At
lii-t they would not tell him. Hut on learainf
thnt he wa_ an othcer of the Greal White CiaT
they reco^ni7ed him to be ihe man af dcetlny, j
through ivh.iiii lha se.-ret t.f iinfailing lile wns to
be given ta the world. Aoeordlngly, a Ilvely young
niin af four or tive huadred bub?aera k?k Mr.
Oatehkowsky aside and told him all al.out it. They
kept fheiii.se'.vet, fi.rev.-r yoaag by the use of 8
my?terioua elixir, which they lajeatcd Into tbeir
ii-ins. The niandarin-lor those iv.-re I hities*
people?Imparted to tlie Raedan th* formula f..r
mak.Bg thla elixir, nnd sent him baek to Burope
to conqaCf d?8888 and death.
When Qatehkowaky returned with t'n- marvel
lous tale all Rmw-B belleved it and o.wwo ruabing to
him for health aml yoath. Me c:,].el bh elixlr
" vitaline," and aharged an etiornioii. pii.-e fr it.

coursing through their velna. To deacrihe it a*
a mnnin is not too mueh.
Gatchkowsky'6 otTice was llternlly beaiefed dny

Mini-ters of State, garteral* of the army, mlllicav (

he ivent t? Gatehkowaky f'-r IreatmeBt, ln com?
pany ulth General Baranoflf, who alao wanted a
iio.sp of " vitaline." The Ulustrioua patienta re
cei- e.l bypodermic Injectionaand went away l appy.
Iheir example faoncJ the (irtnie <>f ihe papular
crazc. The rciruhr phyatoiana wer,- abandouel by
their patients and e-.eryl.oily wished for doBM of
the wiinderf.il " rltaU-e."
Iraaginc, then, the ctiuternntion nhcn it \in
annonnced that t.ei.eral Greaaet was dead nnd
General Baranofl dying. lastaatlp the retreal be
came as wild as tha advanee had beea. Hiere
w.-.a a j^-rfeet stainpede away from Gat-bkoaraky'a.
Bul that wns nol all. Every one who had KCcived
ll.e "vitaline" wa- cnizel with fright, lea! ha lao
sh-'iild share tlerieiiil liresser's fate. Ilnndreds of
them sent. for doetora and BUIgeooa an-l begged la \
have the nrm in which they had received the in-!
jection8 eat off And it araa wrtii difflealty that
they were persaadad not to take aaafa an extreme I
step. Thonaanda were thua frightoned out of theirj
wns and not a few beeame aotaally viry ill
through Bheei alarni.
All this aervpil greatly to amuse those who hnd
not tiaed " vitaline." Bai the beal was yet to
conie. The |>olice soon arrested Gatehkowaky on
charge of hnving eaas-d General Oreaacr'a death
by the administering of a dangerona niedicanient.
Whereiipon, to save him-elf, the qaaek made full
confewion. His atory al.out the Beaer-dP-Bg
r*'ople in A6ia waa sheer iuv*ntion. Th* lormiila
of " vitaline" bad not been reveuled by a mandann.
Hc hail inveiife.1 it himself. And instead of
bf-ing an elaborate and costly affair, it 80?8?ded
of nothing ln the world hut borax and glyccrine!
f hemical analysis proved the truth of tJiis.
Theu there wae a univcrsal guflaw, partly
at the expense of iho6e who had lieen seared
out of their wit?v, and partly at the expense of
those who had solenmly dclared tliat "vitaline"
had OajBd them of all sorta of illa. Tlie victima
of the fright are not over it yet, and the laughier
atill continues. As to tlie death of (.eneral
Grcaaar, it was probably aaaaad by blaod pejaoa
ing from aoim- nccidental uneleanlinesa ol the
bypodermic syriii-.-e. A su'picion of intcntionril
