Chronic Dysentery.
Mr. James Brannan, Second avenue,
Pittsburgh, Pa., writes : ** For two year*
1 have been constantly troubled with a
chronic diarrhoea, or -dysentery, having
had, on an average, from twenty to
twenty-five passages every twenty-four
hours, and every one bloody. I had
thoroughly tried all the prominent physicians
in Pittsburgh, was twice in the
West Penn Hospital, the first time thirteen
weeks, and though I left it much
letter, yet in five days I was as bad as
ever. I then tried two other great doctors
in this city, and one of them finally
assured me I was not long for this world,
and advised me to write to my Mends
about it. I next went to Dr. llartman,
without the least confidence that he could
do anything for me. He examined mc,
smiled, and said, he could stop the bloody
discharges in less than two weeks, which
he did with Pkruna, and I have now
been entirely well for several weeks, and
never felt better in my lifr, 1 hough I ain
still taking his Pkruxa. I will take it
whenever I need medicine.
Mr. Patrick Burns, Pittsburgh, writes :
MI have sufTtred intensely from piles and
chronic diarrhoea. I was treated by five
of the best physicians and surgeons in
the city of Pittsburgh, and with all grew
constantly worse. Finally three of them
said mv only hope was an oj>eration.
This frightened me, and I went immediCtely
to Dr. llartman, who has entirely i
cured ine with Pkruna. I have been at
work now for three months, and never in
my life felt better. Call and see me at
corner of Twenty-seventh and Mulberry
streets, Twelfth ward, Pittsburgh."
Mr. Patrick Cunningham, S. S., near
Sidney street, Pittsburgh, Pa., writes:
, H For "five years I have suffered inexpressibly
from internal and external piles. I
lave tried the best physicians of Pittsburgh
and Allegheny without relief. I
went to Dr. Hartinan, who cured mc
without detention from work with PbRyNA."

MR. VAN KLU&r
[OOXTIXUID FROM FRIDAY.]
IV.
On the Thursday morning following I
was sent for specially by the governor.
"With him I found the chaplain. They
wanted me to find out Mr. Herman Travis,
and deliver into his hffda the letter
and tho ring left for him^by Mr. Van
Klugen. The distance to Waveney Mallow
was forty miles, and I was instructed
to start by the first train. I was glnd
enough to have such a holiday, and all
my expenses paid into the bargain.
I reached Waveney Mallow in' due
course, and was not long in finding Mr, |
Travis' domicile. It was an old-fashioned
red'brick house, standing back from the
street in a courtyard of its own. I rang
the bell, asked for Mr. Trevis, and was
ushered into a small anteroom.
Presently there entered to me an older-1
ly lady, handsome but careworn. Thure
was a troubled 16ok in her eyes, and an
apprehensive something in her air and
manner, as though she lived in momentary
dread of hearing some unwelcome
tidings.
I asked for Mr. Travis. Her son. she
aaid, was away in London. Would not
she do in his stead?
I was sorry, but my instructions were to
see Mr. Trevis himself. If that gentleman
was in London, to London I must go.
Would sho kindly furnish me with her
jon's address.
"Yes, of course I will," she replied, "if
it is really exquisite that you should have
it. But?I hope there is nothing wrong?
.hat you Have no unpleasant business
nrith my son, whicli renders it necessary
.hat you should see him in person?
"Nothing unpleasant, madam, so far as
[ know. Merely to deliver into his hands
i letter from a gentleman who died a few
lays ago."
Her face brightened at once. "In that
:ase I will go and write you'out Herman's
uldress," said. "Meanwhile you won't
>bject to a itIhss of sherry."
She left the room. Just as she reached
lie door there wa?a rush of light footsteps
lown the passage, aUd a girlish voice exilaimed,
"Oh, mamma, here's another box
rom Herman, and all for me this time!
Innh lnvolv things! And it tinv nittkel
tflth a locket and earrings! Diamonds
ind rubies?nothing less. How kind of
lira not to forget us now that his speculaioiiH
are turning out so well."
"Hush, ray darling! Don't speak so
oud. Pray heaven that Hermau be not
nailing into deeper misfortunes than any
we have known yet."
The next train took mo up town, and
;wenty minutes afler ray arrival there I
was set down at the entranco to Gray's
Inn.
Mr. Trevis's room proved to be on the
it'cond lloor, up a narrow stone staircase.
I had just set my foot on the bottom step
when I had to mako way for a young lady
who was coming slowly down. You
night have knocked me over with a straw
a hen, on looking up, I saw that the lady
was none other than the mother of/Mr.
Van Klugen. There was a smilo on her
face as she came down. She parsed close
in front, of me, but without recognizing me.
Having found Mr. Trevis's rooms, I
knocked, and then, in obedienco to a summons
from within, I opened the door and
went in. The room in which 1 found myself
was an ordinary place enough, scantily,
even shabbily furnished. lis only occupant
was Air. Trevis himself, who was
reading as I opened the door. He was a
man of about live and thirty, with short,
black hair, an aquiline nose, and a thick
drooping mustache?a man whom I had
certainly never seen before. Ho shut his
book and started to his feet
"Hello, Denvil! what on earth brings
fou here?" ho exclaimed.
1 was so dumbfounded to find he know
ree-by name, that for a moment or two I
bad not a word to Bay.
"And how's Stockloy? and Stockley's
wife? and Stockley's baby?" he went on.
"But sit down, man, and recover yourself
a bit. That staircase of iftine is an ugly
pull."
I suppose I musthavo looked very ridiculous
as I- sat staring at him in a helplew;
sort ,of a way, for he broke into a
lausrli.
"Anil now toll mo what bis brought you
so far from home," he said, "so far from
dull little Hemingford and the precincts
of the county jail." "I've
brought a letter for you from the
late Mr.jVan Klugen" I said, nardly knowing
whether I stood on my head or my
heels.
His face darkened a'littlo. "From the
late Mr. Van Klugen! Just so. Well, as
Propertius said long ago, 'sooner or later
death couies to all!'"
I handed him the letter. "And I haye
hero a Ting," I said, Uwhich Mr, Van
Klugen took off his finger aud wished to
have sent to you only a few hours before
?befcreyou know what,- sir."
He took the ring eagerly and pressed It
twice to his lips.
"Thanks?a thousand thanks 1" he said.
"It was really very kind and thoughtful of
Van Klugen to send me the ring. To me
it is beyond price." Ho tried to put it on
his little finger, but it was too small. He
looked greatly disappointed, Then he
pressed the ring to his lips again and put
It quietly in his pocket.
"And now for the letter," ho said.
He opened and read It "It has been
done already," he remarked in a low voice,
mora aa if speaking to himself than to me.
"He might have folt sure that I should
not fail in aught that I promised. They
will never know the sting of povorty
again."
I roso to go. Mr. Trovis rose also and
crossed US the window, where he stood for
a minute or two looking out into the quiet
Xtre. "And?Mr. Van Klugen?in
t manner did ho meet his fate?" he
asked, with his back still toward him.
"With courage and resignation,"
"That is well; that is very well," ho said.
Then ho sighed deeply, and stpod for a
little while without speaking. I coughed
as a gentle reminder that it was time for
me to go. Ho turned ana took out ms
puree. "Here is a sovereign for your expenses,"
he said, "and here's a trifling
douceur for yourself."
I pocketed the money, thanked him,
and took my leave.
*.
Two days later 1 was sent for by Mr.
Barker, the lail chaplain, for whom I had
acted as amanuensis on more than one occasion
previously.
"I have here a confession," ho said,
"which was writton out by Mr. Van Klugen
the night before his execution. It Is
a fiincnlar document?so singular, indeed,
that 1 can only set it down as tho product
of a mind diseased and thoroughly out of
tune. Before allowing the original to pass
out of my hands, I am desirous of having
a copy mado for my private iito. That
task I now entrust to vou, relying implicitly
upon your discretion to keep the document
a socret from evory one."
I look the confession, and after I bad
finished Mr. Barker's copy, I thought that
I might aa well make a duplicate for myself.
It is the contents ol that duplicate
which, after tho lapse of a quarter of a
century, and when neither Mr. Trovis,
Mr. Barker, nor the governor is any longer
among the living, that I now take upon
myself to make public, leaving tbo reader,
without further comment, to draw from it
whatever conclusion may teem to him
moat feasible under tho circumstances.
tii a eoxFtssio.v.
"HaMisaroRD, Jail,Monday, Aug. 4,18?.
"The clock has just struck twelve, and
nine hours aro all that aro now loft to me
In this world. There is a dull sound ol
hammering In the distance, tho meaning
of which I cannot mistake. l)ut it Is early
yet, and the hangman Is doubtless sleeping
the sleep of the just.
"I can hardly bring tbe thought home
to my mind that 1 am really and truly tc
die when next tbe dock strikes nine, Yel
inch is the lamentablo fact, and I mas
hurry over my confession?if confession i
can be called.
"Were I a humorist I could find food fo
mirth, though it were of the grimmest, ii
my present predicament?or rather in thi
thought how every one around me is beinf
fooled without one of them so muchai
suspecting it. Neither the worthy gover
nor, nor the chaplain. nor the sheriff, noi
the hangman dreams lor one moment that
they are about to carry out what is termec!
'the last sentpnee of the law' on the wrong
man. And yet such is the indubitable
fact At 9 o'clock this summer morning
theyaro going to hang, not Felix Van
Klugen, bnt|HermanjTrevis; but the\
don1knowit,and they never would know it
were I to die without penning these lines.
Those who read them will probably disbelieve
what I am about to set down. Brit J
cannot help that My object, even had 1
the requisito time and inclinations, is ntfi
to strive to make converts, but to leave behind
me a simple record of facta.
"To begin at the beginning. I was the
only son of well-to-do parents, and having
in addition certain expectations from
a rich uncle, I was brought up to no profession,
nor. indeed, ever taught to ao a
day's work in my iife. For some years I
led an irregular and dissipated life in Loudon
and Paris. My uucle's death proved
the weakness of the foundation on which
my expectations had been based. He died
very rich, but my name was not even
mentioned in his will. Shortly afterward
my father died, comparatively impoverished.
A paltry two thousand,was all that
came to me on his demise. As a matter
of course it did not last ine very long.
| When my last sovereign was spent I bo|
thought me of certain coupons which my
! mother had placed in ray hands for security.
They constituted the provision left
her by ray father for her olu age.' I disposed
of them at their market value, and
appropriated the proceeds. (A confession
is not worth calling by that jiame when it
hides anything. I trust that whoever may
read these lines in time to come will give
me credit for my frankness.)
"Later on, by raeafis of a fictitious document,
I obtained possession of my sister's
little dowry.. It went the way of all that
had gone before, and one morning I woke
up to the consciousness that~a Bolitary
sovereign was the last coin I had in the
world. I could neither work nor bes, and I
thor? wbh nnthintr more that I could con
veniently 'convey.' A life of poverty and
privation was not to be thought of. 1
made up ray niind that there was nothing
left for me but to go through the ceremony
of the Happy Despatch. It did not take
mo long to arrive at this conclusion. I
wrote a lettor to my mother and sister, to
be forwarded to them after all waa over,
in which I told them everything, and
asked them to try and forgive me. Then
I burnt sundry papers which would not
bear reading by other eyes, and after that
I sallied forth into the streets for the last
time. Shunning my club and tho sight of
anyone I knew, I took my dinner all alone
at a French cafe at the back of Regent
street. Tho change out of my last sovereign
I gave to a poor girl at the corner;
then I lighted my cigar and walked slowly
back to my rooms.
"I must go back to an illness which I
had some live years before this time. It
was a fever of some kind and it nearly cost
me my life. I had taken a turn for the
better and was slowly recovering, when
one night, as I lay asleep, I went through
a very strange experience. I becatno conscious
that without being dead, or, indeed,
without any exercise of will on my
part, my inner self?my ego?my spiritual
fgsonce. or whatever you may choose to
call it, had quitted its earthly tenement
for a while, and was wandering aimlessly
through space, like a ghost now Hedged
in search of a home. In this state in
which 1 was I knew neither fear nor elation,
and wonder was an unknown quality.
I .was as one in a dream, and was as
little trammeled by the ordinary physical
laws of the universe as dreamers usually
are. But I had a vivid consciousness of
of life?of a spiritual etherealized kind of
life?which far exceded" anything I had
ever experienced in dreams. At
one moment I saw my body lying
like a dead husk that I had cast behind
me; the next, by the merest exercise
f my will, I was in the hut ofun Australian
friend. He was smoking and reading
over once moro the well-thumbed
letter I had sent him hulf a year before.
Another instant and I was back with my
mother and sister, in the old home at
Waveney Mallow. My mother was about
to put out the lamp for tho night, my
sister was touching a few m|nor*choras
on the piano. 'Thank heaven' that my
lint* io Kntlorl' T koanl mv mntlmp aav
'Tonight I can go to bed with a thankful
heart? But both friendship ami affection
seemed dead within me, and I passed on
utterly unmoved. At the end of about
an hour and ft half I came back to ordinary
life as from a deeper sleep than common,
to find that I had frightened both
doctor and nurse, who had given me up
as a dead man,
"This strange experience had a considerable
effect upon my mind at the
time; but the life I was then leading
quickly wore away all my serious impressins.
I looked upon it as something that
would never happen again, and strove to
forget it as much as possible.
"Not till three years had passed away,
and I was recovering from a sharp attack
of delirium tremens, did anything of the
same kind happen to me again. I was
dreadfullv low and weak at the lime, and
felt that I would almost sooner die than
undergo the horrors of such a recovery.
It was while in this desponding mood that
I fell into a trance (if I may so call it) similar
to the one X have already dencribed,
and with experiences alinost precisely
identical in character. I came out of it as
before, thought it strange, and with returning
health forgot all about it.
"I now come to the night of which 1!
have alroady made mention, wbon I found
myself at the end of fortune's tether, and
made up my mind that^ibere was no resource
left me save suicide.
' When I got back to ray rooms after
dinner at tho cafe. I s?t with my feet on
the fender to rraoKe a last pipe and muse
awhile. The pistol was ready in my hand,
anil I vowed to myself that tlio very moment
the clock struck I would blow out
mv brains. ' I suppose I must have gone
off to sleep while Bitting thus, as the next
thing that I remember is finding myself?
or rather my incorporeal essence?diwociated
from my body, and that without
any volition of my own in the matter.
"I found myself in a large and Bombrc
room, lined with books ana lighted by a
solitary lamp. On the opposite side of the
table was seated the shade of a man whom
I never remembered having seen before?
a grave, handsome, middle-aged personage.
His figure was surrounded by a sort
of faiut halo of white misty light; probably
my own figure presented a similar
appearance, but I did not know it. What
1 did know, by some intuitive process
which I cannot explain, was that I had
been drawn thlthor by the superior willpower
of tbo figure before me. I then
learnt for the first time that others besides
myself posaeaaed the same strange faculty
of being able to leavo their earthly husk
behind them for a brief season. But what
In me was abnormal and beyond my own
control, wan in tbo figure before me normar
and exercisable at will. Mr. Van
Klugen?for ho it waa?had only to llo
down with his head and feet pointing duo
north and south, and to will intensely, in
order to bring on a state of coma or trance,
in w,hith for the time being the spirit
could separate Itself from the Dody almost
as easily as the body could cast off its
outer clothing. All this I learned in after
conversation with Tan Klugen. He told
me too, that his experience had brought
him in oontaot with some half-doien people
possessed with the same singula!
faculty; but in none of them waa it so
powerfullydev'elopedaalnhlmself. With
him, in fact, the process had almost become
formulated into the simplieity of an
exact soience.
" 'We have nevor met before,' began
the shado of Mr. Van Klugen, 'but so fins
: is the chord of sympathy which vibntei
between human soul anu each and every
soul when no longer shut up in a freshlj
tenement, that as I sat here, pining in soli
i tude and longing for a companion, I kne*
i to an Instant when I was no longer alont
i In this ondebttible land that Us* botweei
t tho common world and the world of spirits
t emancipated by death. I willed strongly
that you should come hither, and f ou are
r here. Bat you are troubled, brother
1 shade. You are wanting in that air of
} serenity which should ever accompany the
i philosophic mind.'
i 41 'Why I have been brought hither
without any wish on my own part is a
r mystery to me,' I said, 'seeing that I am
t due in Hades at five minutes past one.'
I "'Is it indeed so? And I1 am to be
r made a spectacle for gods and men outside
i the walla of a jail at 9 o'clock Monday
; morning?and that for a crime of which I
i am as innocent as you are. After all, our
fates are not so very dissimilar.'
" 'Would that I could exchange places
with you I' I exclaimed. 'It is surely better
to die innocent, even by the hangman's
hand, than to be driven to end one s exis!
tence by one's own act.'
"'That is as it may be. Bat tell me
what has broughtjon to this bitter strait.'
"I told him everything?all my faults,
follies, and crimes, and how I had come to
the conclusion that there was no way out
of my coil of trubles but one.
"He listened attentively. 'And would
you really prefer to change places with
me?' he asked when I had done.
" 'Keallv and truly I would.A I havo a
horror of blowing out my brains; and
since die I must, 1 should prefer to be put I
out of existence automatically by the hand
of another.'
"A long conversation followed, which I
have neither time nor inclination to detail.
The result may be stated in a few
words.
"In the first place we wore to exchange
identities. I was to become the tenant of
the unoccupied body of Felix Van Klugen,
at that time lying in a comatose state in
Hemingford Jail; he was to become the
tenant of my unoccupied body, at that
time lying in my chambers at Gray's Inn.
I, as the tenant of Van Klugen's body,
was to suffer the extreme penaltv of the
law on the day appointed for that ceremony,
in return for which, out of his
wealth (which he had taken the precaution
to settle on his mothor previously to
his trial), he was to pay the whole of my
debts, to refund my mother's portion and
my sister's dowry, and in addition to settle
five hundred a year tor life upon each of
them.
"These preliminaries having been agreed
upon, it was decided that we should meet
on the following night at the samo time
and place for the further discussion of our
pian. i
"Even after I had got back to the world :
of every day realities I did not repent the
bargain I had made. By Van klugen'B ,
instructions 1 took next evenings' strong
dose of opium in combination with certain
other powerful Eastern drugs. Ten
ininates after swallowing ths mixture I
faded into unconsciousness only to wake
again in spirit in Van Klugen s library,
where my shadowy host was already
awaiting my arrival.
"At that "last mcotiog everything was
arranged and it was decided that tho allimportant
change should take place the
following night. Much of the timo wo
spent together was employed in coaching
up Van Klugen in the history of my family
and myself. lie entered into all the
details with avidity, and 1 do not doubt
that those who, having known the Herman
Travis of former days, may choose to
keep up their acquaintance with the Herman
Travis of to-day, will find in him a
change that will seem all but miraculous.
In place of a spendthrift and a sot, of a
man who cared for little beyond tho gratillcation
of his own vicious tastes, they will
iind a man temperate to the point of abstemiousness,
a man rich in philosophic
culture, a scholar and a gentleman. How
unaccountablo to them will seem such a :
transformation!
"But another hour has just struck, and
I must hurry on.
"Next night we met again. There were
a few final arrangements to make, and
then both of us were ready for the great
change. We shook hands and parted.
You know-the rest. A few seconds later .
I, Hermau Travis, found myself in the
guise and outward s^mblauce of Felix Van
Klugen, a condemned felon in Hemingford
jail, while the real Frank Van Klugen
would henceforth be known unto the ]
world as Herman Travis. i
"I accepted the alternative offered me ]
deliberately and of my own free will. I ,
cannot say that I regret having done so. j
although I may have found it a matter of 1
some difficulty to reconcile myself to the
Ceculiarities of the position. Even that,
furnvfir. him been airomnliahed.
"1 pen thia confession under no apprehension
that its contents can ever be made
use of against the real Mr. Van Klugen.
What, indeed, could the law do in such a
case? Nothing?absolutely nothing. It
has claimed its victim, and it issatisfied.?
