UNREQUITED LOVE. It Produce# n Komnrkuhlo Dlseaio In an Indian:* Woman. Many months ago the press of the country gave the particulars of a pecul iar cause nt that timo occupying the attention of the management of the control insane hospital of Indiana. The patient was nn-1 i.i Miss Bridget Pcndergast, who was admitted to the hospital in September. 1800. but whoso peculiarities first began to bo studied in July of that year. Little of her history is known, save that she is supposed to hate been disappointed in love. Nearly all of her relatives live in Ireland. Since the original article was written, the woman's condition has remained prac tically unchanged. Shortly after her reception into the hospital she began tg refuse food, and in February. 1891, she utterly refused to swallow anything. About that timo she sank into a pro found sleep, and she is still asleep. Her eyes are continually closed, and the ap pearance is that of quiet, peaceful slumber. Only twice since February, 1891, has she opened-hor eyes, and then but for an instant, smiliog sweetly each time. The pupils of her eyes remain con tracted. The light does not affect them. II or mouth is constantly closed and gen erally frco from salivn. while her teeth arc pressed tightly against her upper jaw. Sho is pale, but h.ie has not lost flesh to an appreciable extent, and her skin is healthy, warm and moist. Sho is fed regularly, from sixty to ninety ounces of milk being given daily. This is fed through a tube .In her throat, for in no other way can sho be forced to take nourishment. If she is placed ina chair she will nil up for a time, tat will gradually fall into n re 'lining attitude. Placed in a standing position, she will topple over, nnicss told very decidedly to stand, when she will stand for awhile with her 'eyes ahut and finally fall over In any direction that the body may be at the time leaning.

That patient diod In 180L There is a possibility that it Is "African lethargy" or "sloeplng sickness" with which Miss Pendergast is afflicted. A MARKL4SE took place'at New Dig gings, Wis., the other day at which soma singular physical changB^Hes were noted. The bridegroom stood six feet and two Inches, bride three feet two and one-half inches. The officiat ing clergyman had tat one leg. The witnesses were a man without arms who signed the marriage contract with a pen between his teeth, and a woman who weighed three hundred and fifty pounds, and a man seven feet six inches tall. Tho bride was fifty yean old and her grandmother, aged ninety-eight, at tended the wedding. The Sbah't Little Joke. "In an art exhibition of London," wrote the shah of Persia in the journal he kept during his last visit to Europe, "we were looking at a painting repre aentlng an ass. I aslced: 'What is the price of this painting?" The director of the exhibition, who was a corpulent man, with a white beordj looked up the price-list, and said: 'One hundred Liglish pounds,' which arc equal to tvo hundred and fifty Persian toman. I answered: 'The price of a live ass is ai the most five pounds: why should tl Is be so dear when it is only the pic ti re of an ass'" The director replied: 'It,'cause it causea no expense and cats neither hay nor oat?.' I said: 'Although it causes no expense, it can, on the other hand, neither carry burdens Dor give a man a ride.' Wo both laughed."
