The Man Without Any Br. us.
Tho surgeons In a well known East?
ern hospital have a queer case on their
hands. Tho patient Is a Kpntlemun
who fell off a ten-story' building or
something like that, and lost his sup?
ply of gray matter. Tho accident
didn't kill him, and tho surgeons be?
lieve that he will live a long life.
The man himself is said to be rather
dlscouruged. Ho does not havo the
keen insight into affairs that once lie
had, and his misses hla cerebrum,
cerebellum and medulla oblongata ter?
ribly.' Ho somehow cannot lpok Into
the problems of tho future with tho
degree of Intelligence he enjoyed be?
fore tho accident. But It seems as
thougu he should find a placo In life,
even If he has no brains, and got along
pretty well. A good many others
have Uttlo trouble in doing so. and
there are many occupations open to
them. Ho might, for Instance, get a
job as yellmastcr of a college squad
Then again, he might go Into politics
and In tlmo work his way Into Con?

men of hla calibre to exceed the speed

preach'a sermon on "Practical Chris?
tianity" at the time of tho blowing'
up of the government bridge at Fort
Rllcy, ICun., In which the pastor's natu?
was Implicated through a confession
Of Private Michael Quirlt, according to
a statement made here to-day by Mr.
Drewer.
The minister was passing through
this city on his wuy from Olustec,
Ohld.. his home, to Fort Rllcy, where,
he says, he will Investigate the con?
ditions lending up to his arrest und
demund an explanation from govern*
mcnt oltlclala.
"My sole mission in lite," ho suit!,
"is lo clear my numo of this awful
charge made against me. it was abso?
lutely unwarranted, as tho Federal ,
authorities found out after they bad
investigated it. But that does not sat?
isfy me. I now want to Know who
I was responsible for mixing my name
la the dynatn'to plot."
Mr. Brewer's arrest followed a con?
fession by Private Quirk, In which, ho
staled that he had met tho pastor,
formerly chaplain at tho fort, riding in
an automobile with a woman, and that
they had asked him to Join them in
blowing up the big bridge over the
Ka.nsas River.
"Thero was some personal malice j?
connecting my uamo with tho plot."
the pastor continued. "When thy;
bridge was blown up 1 was preaching
a sermon in Quanah, Tex. I do not
know Quirk by naino. I do not know
whether I ever saw him or not. I
might remember his face If I saw hlni, ?
for I was acquainted with many of the
enlisted men. I am going to Fort
Rllcy to sift this matter to tho bot?
tom, not so much for my own cake as
for the suko of my children. I ahull
not rest until my uamo stands abso?
lutely untnrnishod by connection with
the Fort Rlloy affair."
Mr. Brewer ' Is now preaching at
Olustec. His congregation has stood
by him. A member of his own con?
gregation urrcstcd him.
"Brother Brower," ho said. "I hate 1?
do It. but hero Is the telegram order?
ing your arrest.'"
I Brewer was held three days. The
government authorities never sent for
him and he was released. He tele?
graphed the authorities at Fort Rlley
that he was ready to go there If they
wanted him. He never got a reply,
tho e\ -chaplain says.
