Washington, D. C Ono of the now
members of the Houso of Representa
tives Is the first blind man who has
ever obtained a seut there, Thomas D.
Schall, of Excelsion, Minn., who' was
elected last November. Congressman
Bchall, who is only 37 years old, is a
aelf-mado man, having earned his own
living since the ago of 9, when ho ran
nway with a circus. Ho is considered
one of the finest orators In Minnesota.
The upper houso of Congress has a
blind member, tho famous Senator
Gore of Oklahoma. Both of theso men
owe much of their success to their
Congressman ScliaU's father was a
captain in tho Union army in tho Civil
War. He died very soon after tho
boy's birth, leaving tho mother too
poor to properly caro for the child.
She entrusted him to a family that
promised him a good homo and an du
catlon, but Instead they gave him beat
ings and abuse, and that is how ho
happened to run away with a circus.
From tho circus ho was cast adrft in
Chicago, where he managed to earn
his living by selling papers and shining
shoes. When he had a spare moment
ho used to read and study, for even
then he aspired to bo a public speaker
and wanted to get an education. After
a while ho got a chance to work for his
board in a small Minnesota town and
go to high school, and there ho made
such good use of His time that ho grad
uated with honors that entitled him to
two years' free tuition In a small col
lege. At college he used to do all sorts of
odd Jobs to help him pay his way, but
he found time to go in for athletics
and became such an export baseball
playei that he used to be hired to play
in thp summer and thereby earned
enough to pay most of his expenses
for the remainder of his course. From
the college he went to the University
of Minnsota to speciallzo in public
speaking, and in three successive years
represented Minnesota in an oratorical
contest of eight states. The first time
Bchall appeared on the platform in a
?4 suit and won third place. The sec
ond year ho wore a $7 suit; that time
he moved up to second rank. All tho
other speakers wore "evening suits,"
CHARGED WITH BEING AORTUNE TELLER,
o- WINS FREEDOM BY READING JUDGE'S MIND
What is believed to be the most
remarkable exhibition of clairvoyant
powere ever demonstrated was wit
nessed recently in a New York court,
presided over by Judgo Rosalsky.
Professor Bert Reese was brought
before the judge, charged with being
a fortune teller. The professor -was
willing to have his powers tested.
The judge wrote three difficult aues
tions on n slip of paper". Without
seeing the paper Reese repeated the
questions and answered them cor
rectly. Reese was immediately released.
which Schall couldn't afford, and both
ho and his friends wero convinced that
he was handicapped thereby. There
fore, the third year ho wore a dress
suit loaned him by a university pro
fessor, and that time he had no diffi
culty In, winning the championship. It
was tho first time for a Minnesota man
to get it.
His real victory that night, though,
according to Schall, was in winning
tho admiration of a co-ed student of
Minnesota university. The nest day
they wero brought together for intro
ductions and congratulations and Im
mediately started up a friendship that
qulrkly developed to love and mar
riage. Margaret Huntley's parents
Five years after Schall had began
practicing law and when his prospects
for success were very bright, ho lost
his sight when the nerves of his eyes
wero paralyzed by a shock from an
electric cigar lighter. After visiting
tho bes1 specialists and being told
thero was no hope whatever for him,
Schall went homo In despair. But
young Mrs. Schall told her hushand
she would henceforth be his "eyes"
and they two together would succeed
in tho law business. She got a job
teaching school, and paid off the debts
that had been incurred in seeking re
lief from her husband's misfortune.
Then she went Into his office, read his
books to him, helped draw up his
briefs and did other tasks usually per
formed by an apprentice. At nights
she attended law classes at the uni
versity. In two years she was able to
handle every detail of a law case up to
the uoint of taking it to the courtroom
and Snail's business not only had been
completely regained but was far ahead
of what he had hoped It would be pre
vious to losing his sight.
When tho Progressive party was or
ganlzed Schall was one of the first to
affiliate. He was a valuable man in a
political campaign because of his
speaking ability. When In the spring
of '94 he decided to run for Congress,
the first political honors he ever had
aspired to, he had no difficulty in get
ting the nomination.
The coming of his blindness was not
accompanied by any disfigurement. His
eyes are just as clear and blue as they
ever were, and to tho stranger do not
reveal tho secret behind them. Through
small in stature and youthful in figure
he ha3 a sincerity of countenance and
dignity of bearing that commands re
spect. In Washington Schall hopes to
bo known as a "fighting Congressman"
rather than merely a "blind Congress
man." Both he and his friends are
confident that he is going to make a
name for himself there.
"A Congressman who cannot speak
is like a knife without a blade, or a
hammer without a head; ho might be
able to put In a few thumb tacks, but
there are spikes to be driven." That
is the wav Schnll expresses It.

young Mrs. Maltland. "It's dreadful

With a gesture wonderfully expres

Professor Wagner von Janregg
whose publication concerning hered
ity have created a great deal of dis
cussion In the mdical world, said to
your correspondent in substance: "A
person descended from Insane people
need not fear to go Insane. If he lives
a hylonlo life thero is every reason to
believe that he will escape the curse.
This ought to be given the widest pos
sible publication, fo" fear or an'lcipa
tlon of insane disaster drives numer
ous people Insane who otherwise
might lead happy b d useful lives.
"According to thb elaborate statis
tics of Doctors Koller and Diem, thero
is little or no hereditary insanity,"
continued the professor; "this means
persons descended from insane ances
tors are not necesse-lly doomed to end
their days in a strait-Jacket; in fact,
there Is little probability that tno
hereditary taint, faccalled, will affect
them if they live right. I deny that a
positlvo disposition to hereditary in
sanity exists. Thci-9 is no rule what
ever that man is doomed to his ances
tor's mental diseases or physical eith
er. He may suffer f.om them, I admit,
but that ha must suffer I deny.
"Man sets up sj stems, many sorts
of systems. The descendants of la
Bane or 6lck parentage should keep
that in mind and Instead of moping
over their fate should pay no atten
tion to hereditary disease talk, but in
stead try to lead hygienic lives. If
they do, there Is no reason why they
should not bo healthy and happy.,
"I do not recall anything on that
point," said the witness. "Oh, you
