I)r Blubaugh. by the anl of ms Invention, expects to be able to resusciate an electrocuted person, and bis method is nothing but a mixture of wot mud. On Wednesday of this week l)r. Blubaugh gut permission to try his scheme at the power house of the Parkersburg and Marietta Interur-. ban company. As subjects he took three rats. The first he electrocuted and after wafting three minutes ap plied the wet mud, with the result that the rat was soon able to walk away. The second test was made af ter the rat hud been electrocuted for five minutes, and was equally suc cessful. To cap the climax another rat was electrocuted and an appliance of the wet mud given it after ten min utes had elapsed. It was able to walk slowly away after being resusciuted Local physicians who have witnes sed the wonderful test say that they see no reason why it should not work better on a human than on a rat. It is believed that a man could he re susclated much quicker, as the prepa ration would not have to take effect going through a tDick covering of I hair. Further tests will he mode' by Dr. Blubaugh this week, and re sults will be awaited with interest.

The case Is that of Judge W. L Loving. Judge Loving, fine of the best known men In Virginia, was tol-l by ills wife on April 2 2 last that Theo dore Kates had taken their daugliti 1 Elizabeth, IS years old, driving the evening before, had given her a drink out of a bottle, when she be came unconscious, snd was In that condition when the two returned af ter 'lark to the house of a neighbor whom her daughter was visiting Judge Loving shot and killed yourur Kstess a few hours later. That the "unwritten law" Is rec ognized by Juries of Virginia Is ad mitted, hut there Is doubt that a Jury will acquit, under the “unwrlt ten law If It he shown that the man • voklng It as his defense acted under misapprehension, or failed to make effort to obtain enact facts. 91 dee the killing of young Kst< there have been edvrlopments which have caused a revulsion of public sentiment.
