THE AKIZONA KEPUBLICAN- FRIDAY MOKNING, AUGUST 28, 1896. f HYPNOTIZED AND BURIED. Morbid Londoners Are Witnesses of a Most Revolting Spectacle. v Morbid sentiment has apparently reached its height in England in a recent hypnotic exhibition at the Soyal aqua rium, at which the subject was liter ally buried alive and allowed to remain so for six days, declares the New York World. The hypnotized man was sealed up in a stout casket, and, in the pres ence of the spectators, lowered into a grave nine feet deep. The lid of the casket was furnished with an aperture, and this connected with the shaft which led to the surface, making respiration possible, and also enabling spectators to view the face of the buried man. At least seven feet of earth were shov eled on top of the coffin, and for the period of six days it was not dis turbed. On. the seventh day the casket was dug up in the presence of a large crowd. The man when awakened was apparent ly none the worse for his experience. The London Lancet, which prints the account of the distressing spectacle, - comments on it, saying: "It is difficult to imagine a more re volting experiment than this. Even granting that these trances have any use whatever which we ourselves fail to admit there can be no possible ex cuse for making them more horrible than they already are by burying the man. "Any experiment it was desired to perform could have been done equally well by sealing the man up in the box without going through the details of burying him and digging him up again. Moreover, under such circumstances, it is impossible to give him aid quickly should he need it, and, although acci dents may be rare in hypnotism, their possibility is by no means to be neglected." INSULT TO INJURY. Rejected Lover Was Afraid It Was to Be Added. "I prize your friendship very highly. Mr. Spoonamore," the young woman said, with profound compassion in her manner, according to Titbits, "but I have examined my own heart and it grieves me to have to say that any closer tie between us is impossible. It can never be. If you could know the pain it causes me to " ( "The pain it causes you!" he echoed. "What do you know of pain, Miss Mc Ginnis? Listen! Asleep or awake, for five long weeks your image has been constantly before me. You have oc cupied all my thoughts, filled my heart and destroyed my appetite! I have ceased to take interest in the ordinary affairs of life. Devotion like mine would move the heart of a eastiron statue; it excites only your pity. And you tell me that 'it can never be!" Friends!" he exclaimed with increasing bitterness. "Friends! Will friendship restore to his normal condition a wretched being whose flesh has wasted away till even his washerwoman doesn't know him?" "I am sorry Mr. Spoonamore," re sponded the young woman, gently, her fingers straying in a mechanical way over the piano, "but it is all I can offer you. And if" "Maud McGinnis!" he gasped, a wild light dilating his eyes, "I I can bear the pain of your refusal, but do not, do not add insult to injury; do not spurn me from your presence to the tune of Get Your Hair Cut.' " AN HONORABLE VEGETABLE. The Onion Has Its Admirers The Ana conda (Mont.) Onion Society. The "nutritious and wholesome onion occasionally finds its vindicators. At the thriving Montana dty of Anaconda there is a dining club called the Ana conda Onion society. Its first feast was recently given with distinguished suc cess. Down the center of the hall, says the Anaconda Standard, was set a long table, with cover for all the guests. At each plate was a large and juicy onion; in the middle of the table was an array of meats, bread, fruit-crackers, cheese and other things. At one end of the hall floated the standard of the club in proud conspic uousness. It consisted of a pole sur mounted by a string of the vegetables from which the socity tales its name. On the wall hung this motto, beautifully wrought: IN ONION THESE IS STRENGTH. Each member wore a pretty bouton- nier of little onions. The occasion was greatly enjoyed by all the participants, and the society hopes to do much to re store the onion to the honor and esteem of the world. In Montana, as well as on the whole of the Pacific slope, the onion attains a ideliciousness of quality which is com paratively unknown on the eastern side of the continent. If the people of the -east could have onions as good as those of Montana and California, it is possible that the Anaconda Onion society might find imitators in the east. Z FEMALE PHILOSOPHER. a Young Massachusetts Wife Took Her Husband's Desertion. A young Massachusetts wife was de ' serted recently by her husband on the fifth anniversary of their marriage. He ran away with a pretty and silly girl of 18 who worked in. the same shop with him. The deserted wife treated the mat ter "almost philosophically," according to the report of the Boston Herald. She ABSORBED Five cents' worth of "BATTLE AX" will serve two chewers just about as long as 5 cents' worth of other brands will serve one man This is because a 5 cent piece of "BATTLE. AX" is almost as large as the 10 cent piece of other high grade brands. said there had been no difficulty be tween her husband and herself, and t hat they were "very agreeable to each other up to the last." But she added: "If he is crazy for the girl, all right ; I want nobody who does not want me." It strikes us that this is not "almost" but altogether philosophical. Why should any self-respecting woman, or man either, want anybody who does not want them and not only want them, but prefer them to anybody else in the world ? In the savage state, or wherever women are regarded as property or as toys and men as necessary protectors, a different feeling is natural. But civil ized men, and women, too, are frequent ly less sensitive and unselfish than the noblest brutes. It may have been philosophy, or it may have been only pride, but the young Massachusetts wife spoke with unusual fineness of feeling. Pure Food and Xrlnlc. Safe! ' A king wanted a coachman, and had no lack of applicants. To test them he asked: " How pear can you drive with per fect safety to a certain preci pice r One said "Within a foot;' another "An inch;" another "A hair's breadth." A fourth said "As far away as possible." The fourth was employed. All Japan tea sold in the United States' (that we know of), except Schilling's Best, is colored on the edge of poison. Some come nearer than others. Schilling's Best steers clear of it no precipice ; no poison. At your grocer's your money back if you want it Schilling's Best coffee, baking-powder, soda, spices, and flavoring-extracts, are also money-backed.

Such is the Condition of the Churchill Addition But, notwithstanding they are now in th ' city itself, there are a few lots for sale yet at prices corresponding with the "Sound Money Doctrine" of President Cleveland and his. cuckoos, which means that kind of a dollar which will buy two dollars worth of property. These lots are near the new elec tric car line which is now in operation. The lots are in the city and their occupants do not need to ride into town, but the presence of electric street cars is popular and adds market value to the property. Inside of five years this will be business property. Buy a lot now for a residence and when business crowds you out the rents will sup port you in a house outside in some addition where you can keep a horse and drive inta town and collect your rents.
