A SAB AND KOM ANTIC HISTOUT. In a modest, secluded House at the corner ol Myrtio avenue and Downing street, Brooklyn, lives an io> valid lady alllicted with paralysis, witu a ntfitory so remarkable uud extraordinary ttiut, notwithstanding it ts voucticd lor by physicians ot standing, It Is al most lucredlble. It Is claimod that tor n period of nearly fourteen years she has livod absolutely with out lood or nourishment of any kind. Tbo case tins been kept by the family of tbe patient a well guarded secret, it having lod thein to a strict seciusiou as tbo only means of protection against tbo visits of the cu. nous ana Incredulous. Tbo name ol lUc remarkable person Is Miss Molllo Fanshor. To the half dozen medical seotlemeu who have seen and attauded her her case is inexplicable. To learn the history of tho strange oaso a Hkralu re porter yesterday called on several porsons lamillar with ti o lacts. Tno first person seen was Dr. Oriuis ton, of No. 74 Hanson place, Brooklyn, who attended her lie said:?"It seems incredible, but from every- j thing I cau learn Mollie Fanshor never oats.

A visit to tho bouse ol tbo patient by tbo reportor was unsuccesslul, tbo oceuparits staling that it was tho physician's llruction to admit no oue. lie iound. however, a lady intimate with the faintly, who thus described lloilic Fausber:?"I shall never lor^et my impressions ot the poor girl when 1 llrst saw hor.
