One of the most remarkable exhi aitions of the power and influence of iatalepsy, a form of hysteria which :ontracts the muscles and deprives the subject of the sensation of yvll lion, occurred at Dl)aton, U., a few lays since, in which Thomtas P.'urdy, t laborer, was the subject. In com pany with several other workmen, Purdy was engaged in digging a deep trench. lie was standing at the top of the trench with a long handled shovel removing the gravel which a work titan below threw to the top, when with the suddenness of an electric lash the man. became transfixed in A position, as immouveable as a piece of statuary. Ile was in the act of rais ing le shovel when attacked. Ills right hand tightly clutched the f shovel handle near its end and the left hand near the middle. His left leg was advanced and slightly bent at the knee, while the blade of the shovel pointed at au inclination of about 30 degrees. Ilis eyes were closed. Every muscle of the lithe and com pactly built workman was as taut and rigid as though constructed of iron. One of the workmen who ob served his condition got out of the trench and tried to remove the shovel held by Purdy. The shovel, though, was clutched in an iron grip, and al though lihe struggled hard he was un able to remove it from tile grasp of its possessor. 'The manns feet were firmly planted on the ;:round.- as though nailed, and lie sLtood there rigid and motionless as a piece of statuary SPhysicians were summoned to the scene and the rmalrvelious si .}t wv,;5 witnessed b1 hu'ldrcds oh ciize,'. Scverall unsuccessful attempti.s t re itmove the shovel from his ilands were made, when Police Captain Alaback, lassisted by several otlicers, succeeded ii removin' it from his grasp, al thou-gh it seemed that they would surely break off his lingers in so do iing. The man's heart beat with the ordinary pulsations: and the lungs were performing iiheir avocation. After the man had stood in this position for over two hours he was licked up like a piece of marble and carried in a patrol wag-on to -a hospi tal.
