sUancbest friend tf the tobacco In
terest in the present Congrats, and
hat introduced a bill to amend the
lav of 1PH3, fixing the doty on im
ported tobacco. '
"ins bill which I bava introduced
has for ita main object," Mid Mr. Oaa--well,
1 a correction oi the law ao aa to
prevent the evasion that ia now being
practiced. The bill doe, however.
Srovide fir an Increase oi the rate cf
oty to 25 cent per pound. The chief
objsct ia to protect onr growers in the

Jor wnpping. Wlaconsir, PenDsylta

Htaiet have reached a high standard in
'Wbat ia fie faalt with the present
lawT" was asked.
The present law, which was in fact
aimed at the Sama'ia leaf, levies a
duty of 75 cents a pound, it 85 per
nU of thebsla of package is suitable
f r wrappers. ' If leas than 85 cenla, is
it for wrappers, the whole package Is
admit tad at a duty of 35 cents a pound.
Importers have, therefore, placed In
tasb. package of Sumatra leaf Just
enough ci lower grade to bring the
whole below the 85 per cect.it aidard,
thus getting it thiongh oar custom
house for a doty of 85 cenU on the en

a pound- The somber of poanda was
ver 2,000,000, valued at over $18,000,
(XX). Only 28,000 pounda paid a doty
of 75 cetti a pound, just 1 cent difl'er
ence between the value of the Impor
tations paying 75 cents duty and those
pajfng 35 ceLtl.
"The bill which I have Introduced,"
continued Represent itive Caswell,
"provides for a duty of $1 a pound on
all anstemmed tobacco, if the package
contains 0 percent. anitabl) for wrap
pers. A pound of Sumatra' lea f ia
worth about four pounds of our to
bacco. Foiie eastern growers want a
duty tf $1 60 a pound, but I have no
hope that the tax ran be raised In this
Congress above $1, if we can get any

"It Is clear that a large number of
the Democrats in the 1 louse are for

MR. JAMES WILSOI,
THE rOl'TER-PIGEON CHESTED
OB BALLOON MAN.
Scientific Measurements of tbe
Sphygmograph that In Part Ex
plain DifllcsJt rroblem.
The presence in Memphis tf Mr.
James Wilson, chest expansionist, oth
erwise known si the''ballooa man,"
was recently deemed of sufficient im
portance by' the Medical College au
thorities to cause them to march their
students in a body, with the object cf
showing them something new aad
strange, to fie Dime Museum, which
ia under tbe able management of Mr.
Crosby, who spares no expense in
ministering to the Insti action as well
as amusement of bis patrons.' As s
newspaper account of the proceedings
at the Museum wai published next
day, it is unnecessary for me to do
more than mention the fact that tbe
medical men who examined the cate
scooted tb idea that there was ab
sence of the disphragm or presence cf
this, that or the other of tbe viscera,
which ignorant speculators have ad
vanced in fc-ciful explanation ci the
extraordinary chest expansion powers
of Mr. Wilson. The fact is that the
marked increase In chest giitb during
forced inspiration depends on the
simple fict that lung capacity has net
reached its limit, having steadily ac
companied increased rib mobility. Tbe
ordinary inspiratory n t is accom
pliAed under the joint action of the
diaphragm, or muscular septum be
tween tbe chert and the abdomen, the
elevators of tbe ribs and the external
intercoe'ul muscles snd tome parts of
the internal intsrcostals; while daring
forced inspiration numerous muscles
of the throa neck, heart, shoulders
snd back contract powerfully to fix
the upper parts firmly so as to assist
in still further drawing up the
ribs, each pair of which ro
tates round a horizontal axis throush
the backbone, to which they aie
united by means of joints by their
heads and tubercles. Mr. Wilson's
peculiarity depends on the fact that
grett practice naa given him increased
rib mobility. With him tbe planes c f
the ribs tend to become horizontal,
the movement of the upner ribs caus
ing a great increase in the depfi of
the chest, while that of the lower ribt
tends t) increase, its breadth. The
fioweiftil action 'of the diaphragm
n increasing tbe capacity of the chett
from above downwards, and so giving
rcom fr the expansion of the lungs,
cannot have been very well under
stood by the philosopher who si a t d
the theory of absence ot the dia
phragm to account for what Le could
nc t otherwise understand.
There cau be very little doubt that
under favorable circumstances such a
peculiarity aa that of Mr. Wilson
woald be of very great advantage in
sending man to overcome the diffi
culties offered by the untamed forces
of nature t) his higher development.
We can imagine how a hardy aad dar
ing race ol fishermen or hunters might
result from such an ancestor; the
f xt'U chest capacity enabling this one
to face the perils of the sea with com
parative learleesnesson account oi tne
great swimming ability which would
naturally accompuny such increased
power ol flotation, while the primeval
Hunter would have a po' of run
ning down his game or finishing a
fierce atrugglef which his less favored
neighbor would not posses, and who
would, therefore, tend to go to the
wall in the struggle for existence
should food become rcarce or same
become more wary and difficult to ap
proach. But these speculttions,
though Interesting, are not the object
of my present communication. Com
mon Bense, whether of the ordinary
obeerver or of the medical expert, en
ables one to take a practical view of
the cne which is just sufficient for
general purposes, and to that I am
content to leave It. There are, how
ever, cert tin points connected with
the physiology of the case as dis
tinguished from its anatomical aspect
which are really worth recording, and
which will add interest to Mr. Wil
son's exhibitions in the eyes of some
of those who may visit the museum
during the ensuing week.
In the latest German physiological
work in my possession it ia said that
"with regard to the effect produced on
the pulse-curve by a powerful expiia
tlon and a forced inspiration observers
are by no mtans sgreed." I think
that any person who has seen Mr.
Wil'.on during his exhibitions will be
satisfied that the physiological expert
need go no further if he wants a case
uihju wuiuu wj peri'irw au cajimmnw
umcrueii. On the 28th Ir start I af
fixed a sphygmograph to Mr. Wilson's
right wrist and took the carve cf tbe
radial artery during ordinary resnlra
tlon. The curve traced by the needle
of tbe instrument was that which has
been reproduced by tbe engraver, and
marked no. I.
Here we have an ordinary well
marked pulse trace cf a rather nervous
temperament, the latter characteristic
being indicated by the near npprcaih
tn the imaginary boriaontal bass line
of the notch, which is seen before the
eecondary wave. Tbe first elevation,
that Indicating tna nigneet part 01 tne
trace, is called the Impulse wave and
iadnato the tint movement 01 tne
arterial stresms under tbe pressure of
the contracting left ventricle of the
heart This wave is rapidly ti admit
ted from tbe aorta, or great blood ves
sel fed dlrect'y from the heart, until it
ia Ion in the smaiiett arterioles, ine
notch first mentioned Is toe indention
that the aoitio valves ct the ltftven
trlcla of the heart have closed, snd
the secondary, or, as it is called, the
dicrotic wave, depends on tne reoonnd
of the blcod. set in motion
bv the contractions of tbe arteries
which had been disturbed by tbe first
or impulse wave, from the closed
valve aa a firm batis. This dicrotic
wave seen in all normal pulses, is more
marked when tbe arterial tension is
low., which amounts to saying when
the blood can empty itself rapidly out
c f the vessels. Wsdo not meet the
truly dicrotio pulse except in esses of
nervous exhaustion, ss after fevers
and in advanced cases of consumption.
I will quote from LandoiB and bur
ling: "strong expiratory pressure is
beet produced by closing the mouth
and nose snd then making a great ex
piratory effort; at first there is In
crease of ' the blosd pressure nud the
formation of pulse waves resembling
those which occur In ordinary expira
tion, the dicrotic ware being less de
Teloped ; but w ben ths force d present s
is long continued the pnlse waves
have all the signs of diminished
tension. This eliect ia due to the
aotion of the vaaomo'or center, which
is effected retiexly from the pulmona
le narvas! (that ia. the varomotor cen
ter controia ths caliber of ths small
arteries by acting on their muscnlar
coats, and to alters the blood tension).
We mutt awume that forced expira
tion actt by dtpretsir ' j j tf iivity of
the varomotor cent." This condi
tion I claim to have Unjinstra'ed is
the most ratiafuctory 7-y, as will be
seen by reference ti Nt, ,
when we see the indications ot a
hyperdicrotio pulse : .he notch fills
below the level of tha bMe line. We
have here a pbyrioli.. 2 peculiarity
corresponding to Mr. Vilsou'a ara
tomical peculiarity ot excessive in

primary elevation is slight, owing to
tbe resistance ollered by tbe aitery
and the diminished heart contraction
antecedent Here I differ from the
German physiologists jott referred to,
but we may suppose that the vasomo
tor center had some stimulating in
fluence, due to the reaction from tbe
previous depression sfWUng it. I
found the normal pulse curve return
after a short interval. Vheee experi
ments msy be depended 00 u accurate,
as I have made very many observa
tions on the pulse with the tphys
mograph. I am free to satc, how
ever, that ont of the tbous.uda of trac
ings in my portfolios of ptrsont of all
ages snd of different sexes I have
never seen so remark ab!a a result fol
lowing the set cf inspiration. It is
needless to enlarge on t.'je care of Mr.
Wilson, for he ought ''-j be seen to be
apprjeiated: his great ff at of 1 xeiting
a pressure sufficient ti break leather
belt, capable of sustaining' ni arly 6C0
pounds weight by tha expansion of
his chest.is in itself a feature of attrac
tion sufficient to fill ti e museum.
