a well-known specialist in mental eases,
recognized the overcrowding of the Paris
asylums with harmless persons, who l>e
canie worse by their conlincment. He
resolved to take a new step.
His first care was to Hnd a' 1 healthy
locality, convenient for Paris, where his
patients could enjoy u> the full the heal

ditions presented themselves ut Dun, a
village picturesquely perched upon a.
■sharp ridge of hills. He set to work to
establish his Colonie Familiale, or sys
tem of boarding out patients. Naturally,
tire most important matter was that tiie
houses into which he proposed to send
nis cases should be perfect from a sani
tary point of view. The peasant proprie
tors were very glad to have their houses
thoroughly overhauled under the Doc
tor's supervision, as the new guests were
a considerable source of revenue to them.
The colony liad small beginnings—
■twenty-live women only. To-day thV2
number is 750, and the peasants show
an increasing willingness to take the
patients into their houses. From being
a private enterprise, it has become a
State matter. » The settlement has now
a central bureau, with a matron Sn
charge, who has caretakers and othc:
servants under her orders. There is
also an infirmary, with a ward .specially

The Interewtin?: Scanel-
BROOKLYN. N. V., October 20.— (Spa
cial.)-It was a great tactical error on
the part of Grover Hudson to throw the
egg at all. In tlie first place, no centle
man should throw an 2gg. good or bad. at
a lady, and In the second place he hit the
| lady in the car. not only cutting the ear,
jbut demonstrating beyond cavil that the
j egg was bad.
Now this was the point In dispute ana
Us final adjudication led to Grover Hud
| son having to pay a fine of 525 in the
Court of Special Session*.
The ccntroversy started last June when
i Mr-. Hannah Dougherty went into Wil-
I liam Hudson's store at Bond and War
ren streets, and bought a dozen egrgs.
W T hen she got home she opened eight ot
them and found, she alleges, they were
all bad. Therefore she went back in some
indignation to 'Hudson. taKlng with Tier
the remninfr.g- four eggs anfl demanded a
return of her "money.
Mr. Hudson was skeptical. He took the
eggs, one by one.v and began opening
I them himself. Number one was good, so
was number two. so was number three,
Mr. Hudson's Jre arose.
" You say these eggs arc rotten?" he
queried.
'•Sure, they aie." responded Mrs. Dough
ertv.
The grocer lot fly .the remaining egg,
which landed on the right ear of the lady
aVoMbursted. After that there was no
i doubt on earth v as to the status- of tne
ojrg. The policeman, who came to tpp
cue_of Mrs. Dou.eherty. attracted by the
Fcfehms. found blood streaming from a
cut ir. the ear, so mixed with sulphurated
hydrosen that he held his nose for eight
minutes.
It took lawyers four months to get the

to join her and get married. Miss Ciougli
was to marry a young gentleman of Suf
folk on the Ist of November. She met
Mr. McDonald on the 2'M of September
but she was forbidden by her father to
receive his attention. He has betn

which was surrounded by a large crowd
of the county's most substantial citizens,
and introduced Hon. Eugene Withers, of
Danville, who came forward midst shouts
of applause. Mr. Withers spoke for ;t
short while, defending in a most able
manner the new organic law. and point
ing out the unending good to be derived
therefrom. He then introduced Congress
man Swanson, who was greeted with an
outburst of deafening applause. ■
Mr. Swanson was in fine trim, and be
gan by saying he had hoped to divide
time with Mr. Davis to-day, but the lat
ter, as always heretofore, had refused to
meet him, and that he (Swanson) had
no respect for any man who would talk
about r another in the chimney corner,
but would not meet him face to face.
Davis's record in the Constitutional
Convention was then dissected. Mr.
Swanson referred to his first speech of
the campaign, which- was at the home
of Divis. On that occasion *he chal
leng,/ Davis for a joint debate. Davis

not meet him on any terms. The reason,
said the speaker, that the Republicans
had .ever, won anything, in this district
was because they had never nominated
a man who would meet Claude A. Swan
son face to face. Mr. Swanson declared
that his majority In this county would
be numbered in the thousands.
During Swanson's speech Davis was on
the other side of the court-house speak
ing to a 'mixed crowd, the majority of
whom will have no voice in the coming
election.; During the afternoon, the Pro
hibition/nominee for Congress, Dr. D.
C. Dickinson, addressed a large crowd of
people from the same stand occupied by
Davis. His audience was composed of
people prompted to listen through curi
