The condition of Martin Westcott, the young man who Is supposed to be suffering from the effects of hypnotic influence, Is the subject of conversa tion among the people In this vicin ity. The case has been mentioned in newspapers all over the country and has given grounds for press comment, In which several Ideas as to the genu ine cause of his condition have been freely expressed. Since Thursday, Dec. 10, he has wandered around town in a dazed condition, and has not spok en to any of his friends or 'acquaint ances. His father follows him where ever he goes fearing something serious might happen him. It is not safe for him to go out alone, as he Is not re sponsible for his actions and his par ents are afraid that he might In some manner succeed in committing suicide. Several rumors are afloat as to the real cause of all this trouble. Many be lieve it Is the evils of excessive cigar ette smoking and other abuses, wnila others are of the opinion that it Is due to the effects of hypnotism. The case Is a mysterious one and Is the cause of serious trouble to the parents ot the young man. who are almost heart broken. J. G. Westcott, father of the boy, called on The Tribune reporter yesterday and made the request mat his views be published in The Tribune columns. Mr. .Westcott says that In September last Professor A. S. Lowe found In his son a genuine case In which he could most successfully dis play his abilities In the hypnotic pro fession. He had such an Influence over him at that time that he was unable to rest easily and could not eat. with the same appetite as usual. He fol lowed his occupation until the 'effects of hypnotism grew upon him so that ke was unable to do anything.

Mr. Westcott wishes to say that what Professor Sage said in Car bondale concerning the boy's condi tion Is not true.

He has also watched his actions since that time and have noticed an unnatural change In the boy's conduct. The boy Is still residing with his parents, and Mr. Westcott invites anyone who does not believe his statements to call and see for themselves.
