I'HILADELPHIA. Novemnber 1G.-The
medical profession of this city are inter
ested in a remarkable case which is now
engaging the attention of three of the
most encnt lrofessorsin the Universi
ty of Pennsylvania. There is probably
no parallel recorded in the books, and
the long discussed question of pre-natal
influence has received a corroboration
that cannot but fail to convince its most
skeptical opponents. The case is inter
esting, not only to medical men, but to
the public generally, inasmuch as it re
lates a strang" story of how greed for
wealth and fame caused two persons to
imperil two lives.
Antoine Bellini, a Genoese, known in
the show business as Tony Ballentine,
was married fifteen years ago to Maria
Griggs, who was then a bareback rider
in Robinson's circus. Bellini was an
acrobat. After their marriage the pair
went to England and from thence to
France, where they engaged in their re
spective lines of business. They re
turned to America in 1876. At that time
there was a great demand among pro
prietors of side-shows and museums for
freaks. Millie Christine, the two-headed
girl, was at that time under the manage
ment of William Smith, and was draw
ing a weekly salary of $400. Charley
Tripp, the armless man, and Ann Leake,
the armless woman, were receiving the
extraordinary salary of Q:200 a week each.
Those remarkable little dwarfs, known
as the Wild Men of Barneo, were bring
ing in a weekly income of 8600 to their
manger. Even the Azuec children, Tom
and Hattie, wero valuable pieces of
property, aud readily commanded about
the same sum.
- A HORMBLE IDEA.
It was in the early part of 1877 when
Bellini became imbued with the idea that
there was an immense fortune awaiting
the man who could produce a freak that
should eclipse all other freaks either in
hideousness or oddity. With this thought
uppermost Bellini subjected himself to a
most painful mutilation. He seared and
burned his thumb and the three fingers
on each side of his index fingers with
sulphuric acid, suffering the most agon
izing pain. His intent was to cause the
thumb and fingers to slough off, and, in
credulous as it may appear, he endured
the torture for nearly a week. He was
then taken to a private hospital on West
Forty-ninth street, New York, by his
own request, and there asked that the
mutilated portion of his hands be am
putated. Tlis was refused. and an eflort
was made to heal up the sore, but
Belliniwas persistent, and upon the ab
solute refusal of the surgeons to do what
he wanted them to do, he left the hos
pital, and, either by threats or entrea
ties, induced his wife to perform the
operation that the New York surgeons
refused to consider. He came to Phila
delphia, and for nearly a year lived in
the southern section of the city, subsist
ing upon the little hoard that he had
manged to save in England.
In the spring of 1878 Bellini opened
what is known in Philadelphia as a
"hnmmershop," thatis,agroggery where
whiskey is sold for from three to six
cents a glass. His hanas had then healed
up and presented a most curious appear
ance. There was nothing but one long
iinger to each of them, and the tip had
been so broadened by use as to give
them the appearance of the head of an
adder. By means of hand bills Bellini
advertised himself .throughout the
neighborhood'as. the snake-finger man;
and nz~fomgreat distances to
seed peed to obtain several
engfibftswith small side-shows trav
ehgetth.Barnum's circus, but the
freak market was then pretty well flood
ed, and he did no~t beggi to realize what
he thought he would.
PERFEcT DOMESIC H.Ut~NY.
It waat ?his-time that Bellini entered
into a'inost extraordlinary compact with
his wife., Hie was a man of some little
education, and, having studied for the
medica~.peofession in is early youth,
had a smattering of physiology and
anatomy. MIrs. Bellini was so thorough
ly in.aeood with her husband's ideas
that shie was perfectly willing to become
the mother of a monstrosity, if nature
could be coerced into brnging forth
such an nnual being. Bellini mann
factno.adIideous looking aflair, which
might resemble either an alligator or a
Chinese idol, and for several weeks in
succesioni he would awaken his wife
from a sound sleep and suddenly thrust
this uncanny object in front of her. In
December, 1878, the woman gave birth
to a male child. It was perfectly formed
and fat more beautiful as to its physical
development than either father or moth
er. Bellin?i then realized that the theory
which he had formed was wrong, be
cause the mother was prepared for the
surprises and it made no mental inm
pression upon her. Bellini then told his
wife that. he -would abandon this idea
and that they would thereafter gain their
living outside of the show business. This
was only a blind. Nineteen months after
the birth of the first child Mrs. Bellini
was called to the front door one day,
and when she opened it she was con
fronted by a most repulsive object. It
was a blind man whose sightless orbs
were turned towards her eyes, and whose
outstretched hands each elutched a
writhing snke. The woman started
back in affright and fell in a faint in the
entry. When she recovered the blind
man and his snakes had disappeared,
but the woman's husband came into the
house a few moments afterwards, his
faebeiuning with pleasure. The day
slipped by and the Snake-linger man:
said nothing further about the agree
ment he had made some two years be
fore.
THE STARTLING REsULT.
Mrs. Beillini for a second time becaune
a mother. Her child was a girl and a
most extraordinary creature. Not only
was it sightless, but that portion of the
face where th~e eyes ought to be was as
smooth as the palu of a man's hand.
2Dr. Ballard, who was the acceoueheur,
was so interested ini th e c tht he called
in two other phyiians,1 Dr. A. S.
Brown and George M. .atton. The lit
tle stranger was not ouiy totally blind,
but its hands were stanglv malformed.
There seemed to 1ie simpiy an elonga
tion of the foreanin, straighit piece of
flesh ending in a finger nail. There was
no joint, and the only movement that
the child could make was at the wrist.
It was determined at the expiration of
six weeks to perforra an operation on
the child's face and to cut into the flesh
under the frontal bones of the skull, to
see whether the child by this means
could be sgiven its sight. Bellini had
been very assiduous in his attention to
his wife Ind babe, and when this sug
gestion was broached to him he mad
the most strenuous objection:. The doc
tors thought that the man was cithe
drunk or crazy, and by a clever strata.
gem oie day managed o get him tc
take a trip to a distant part of the city
During his absence the operation wa
performed, but to the, intense amaze
ment of the surgeons there was no eye
ball underneath the flesh. Upon Bellini'%
return he became furious when h<
l-arned what bad taken place, but coole
down and exhibited the greatest joN
when told that his child WaIs sighties

profession and the puli~e. Re 11:t

ev'en more of a monster, but that he wa
very well satisfied as it was. Strangel
enough his wife appeared to be as muel

geons should make no attempt to inter
fere with the extraordinary malforma
tion. The case became known ainont

I asked how can we find out ih several
e rations adapted to working rtnimIals, to
fattening animaals. to aninmals not at
work, to imilk animals and s:> on. The
answer Is by experiment-b'y trying
diirerently compounded rations. no' tiD
results as shown in the animal's health,
ability to work, increase or los 0
I weight, yield of milk, etc., ad at thc
same time by analyzing the excrets, to
r ascertain if an excess of any ingredieni
has passed oflf through them. Now a
fai imer could not well carry out such ex
perinieuts, but it Ias been done fur him
by agricultural experiment stations, par
ticnlarly those of Germany. Fortinate
1 ly this is a case where locality does not
rafect results. Conclusions reached ii
Gernany would be cqually true and cor
1 reet in America. The experiments al
e luded to have been performed with great
care. Animals have bee'n kept durino
. the experiment in air-ti4it chanbers,
e through which the necessary ireh air ,
carried, and all the foul air which lusses
out is collected and analyzed, to E-nd
what the animal appropriated irom thi
fresh air, and what it throws of by its
lungs and the pores of its skin, into the
foul air. At the same time the exerets.
both solid and liquid, are most carefully
collected and analyzed. The food giver
the animal was carefully weigrhed, and
its composition ascertained, by analyz
ing some of exactly the same kmnd. W
speak now not of one, but of many ex
f p1riments of this character made b)
ditierent parties. The average results 0:
all will be given below.
But before doing tIs, it may be states
that there are three leading eomponent
of food; one in which nitrogen is an im
portant element, two others in whi-l
there is no nitrogen. The first is terme
ad albuminous subsetance, or for con
venience and brevity, "protein;" th<
second, because carbon and hydrogen
are their two chief constituents, ar<
called "hydrocarbons;" the thial is th<
well known substance fat. The hydro
carbons embrace substances as starch
sugar and gums. Protein replaces wastei
muscle, and supplies material fur growti
in young animals. It also is the sourec
of the cheesv portion of millk. Hyvdro
c' rbons and fat are the sources of heat
o power and of the fat which is hid ur
s in the animals body. With these e:
planatory remarks, the resuts of actuia
tests may now be give1. posing '

Show can I know how much of these re

a food I give my animals. Tables giving
-this information are now to be found iit
various publications. D). Appleton & Co..
of New York, publish a little pocke:
manual, entitled "The Farmers' Annua.
Hand Book," which contains such ta
bles, together with much other valuabh
Sinformation, which it would b~e well foi
every farmer to have, it costs, we be
lieve, about 50J cents, and is thcrefor<
within the reach of all.
Looking at the above taible, we find
thait the amount of the sevendl ingre
dients of food for a milk cow is very
-nearly the samie a's that for a heavily
worked horse ot equal weight; the most
marked dif'erence is in the amount of fat.
This would hardly have been expected,
inasmuch as the cow as a butter pro'
ducing animal would seenm especially to
need fat. It will b2 obscrved that she
does require a very liberal sup~ily of that
subostancc, however, standing thind high
est in the list. The heavily worked horse
does not lay up fat in his tissues, neither
does he produce anything rich in fat like
niilk; the extra amount of fat in his cr'se
is used up in producing museular power.
Experiments in this case, as in many
others, upsets preconiceived notions.
Again, it is obvious that, if either of the
three ingr-edients in the food be in excess
of the amount indicated in the table, the
animal has no need for it, does not use it,
and it is virtually thrown away. It is
impossible to estimate how nmech is thus
pracetically lost in the ordinary feeding
of animals. W. L. J.

Nine years ago a colored woman. Sam-ah
Anderson, be-came almost crazed with anger
one day at the keeper of the p)oor farm. So
will was she in her rage that she was

time. the keeper of the place entered her
apartmtent and found her in bed. She was
not il!. but she refused to arise. Days,
weeks :md months passed, but never once
did the womianl leave her couch unless
draggedl from it. The medical fraternity
visited her, and without exception pro
nunced her perfectly well; but, notwith
,taningiu this fact, she remained in bed.
