I could Bcnrtely eat anything because of the In

My breath became so short that I was unable to
work and was obliged to give up my business,

walk about much. So I kept going from bail to

which, with all my other complalnta, confined
me to my room lor three months and
Nearly Took Away My Life.
I had heard of Hood's Sarsaparllla as a good
medicine, so I bought a bottle. When I had
taken It, I louml It4ad done me some good, so
I continued till I had takon three bottles. I Im

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.
The cr.se in exciting the greatest at
tention of the medical fraternity.
Supnrinten'lent Wonglit reports! that
little is really known as to the cause
and offcct. nor what might euro, but
one similar ease has been recently re
ported. thntof u patient in the Kingston
(Canada) hospital, who lived thirteen
years under similar circumstances.
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."
