MERRICK, THE INDIANAPOLIS BUTCHER, ON
TUB DIRSECTIN'GTABLK INTERESTINO
EXPERIMENTS WITH THE CRIMINAL'S CAR
CASS THE DEAD MAN MADE TOCOCOH,
ROLL ITS EVES AM) MOAN.
From tbe Indtanapolta Herald.
The body of Merrick, the fiendish wife
muderer, who was recently banged in Indi
anapolis, passed into the hands of the fac
ulty, of the Indinapoiis Medical college.
What was done with it is detailed below.
The experiment mado was most wonderful
and was attended by wonderful results.
The professor, addressing his class, said:
"Gentlemen, this subject affords an op
portunity of showing how tar vital action
may be suspended and again restored. All
this man's organs are perfect, but his vital
energy is lost. To restore it we must make
the heart beat again; the coagulateH)lood
must be removed from the hear' cavities;
aud the lungs must be filled with air."
Taking up a sharp knife, tho professor
cut down upon the wind pipe from what is
known as Adam's apole to the hollow over
the breast bone. With a sham steel hook
he raised the wind-pipe, split it open, and
inserted the nozzle of the bellows, making
u ihm wiui a suver wire around ttie pipe.
This dane, the handles of the bellows were
put hi charge of an assistant, while the
professor took up a long, hollow needle, or
tune; Halt as largo as an old lashioned
knittmg-kneedle. To this he attached, on
a head at one end, a rubber tube one ouar-
ter of an inch in diameter and three feet
long. 1 his was attached at the other end
to a glass jar, or receiver, and the receiver
was attached to an air pump, which was to
be controlled by another assistant. The
proleseor next placed a gallon jar, contain
ing a mixture of cenbrinated sheen's blood
and milk, in a pale of water, all of which
had been heated to 100 dec. F. From the
jar (placed a little above tlie table, about
uve ieei aistant,) ran a rubber tube, one
quarter of an inch in diameter, to the end
ot which was a short silver tube, with stoo-
cock attachment. The wires of the battery
were now uncoiled, tnd very delicate, platinum-pointed
needles were fixed. All this
apparatus being arranged and in the hands
ot the confident assistant-), the professor,
who had been all the time talking quietly
of the various instruments he was handling,
now placed a delicate thermometer before
him and said :
"Now, gentlemen, we are ready. Let
every action be performed steadily and
quickly as I direct. I now open the right
juglar vein, and permit what blood there is
in it to escape. You see by the flowing it
is not coagulated, and as I thrust this ther
mometer into the vein it indicates that wo
have tho body at 08 degress F., tho
natural temperature of tho human being in
health. I will now attach this small tube
in the vein, which, of course, connects it
by this siphon tube with the jar of defibri
nated warm sheep's blood and milk. I
keep the stop-cock closed for tho present.
Next I will plunge this hollow needle,
which is attached to tho air-pump, or
aspirator, into the ventricles of tho heart,
and when the air is exhausted into tho re
ceiver the clotted blood will bo drawn out.
You know that needles, sharp, narrow
blades, and even arrows have pierced tho
walls of tho heart in living animals fre
quently, without producing death because
upon their withdrawal tho contraction of
tho muscular pores closes tho opening.
Now this needle is in tho right ventricle,
and (making another attachment by tho
double tube) this is in the left. All is now
ready except our arrangement for stimu
lating tno nerves which presido over respi
ration, tho hcatt and general circulation.
These nerves are the rmeumo-gastric and
great sympathetic, Tho former comes from
the base ot the brain in a certain spot; the
latter will require an opening into the
Tho professor then took a small diamond
drill, not larger than a horso-hairv and per
forated the skull at two points, an inch
apart, nt tho base of the brain, into which
he thi list the two delicate platinum points
of tho battery. At tho moment these entered
evend n'marked that tho chest had moved
a if in expiration. The bellows was do
tatched, ami, sure enough, a quantity of
bloodv-luoking froth and mucus was being
forced put of the wind-pipe. This was all
drawn out with a nyringe, and the pmfes

mood and milk, and was to turn ho stop
c.icks to let it flow into the juglar veto, and
thence into the heart, as the professor of
physiology was to empty tho blood clots
trom the Heart with the aspirator (or air
pump) at the same time. Another student
was to inflate tho lungs with tho bellows
by a slow,' easy motion not more rapidly
than eighteen times a minute. Another as
sistant was to move a scrape-valve on the
bellows-tube, so that when tho lumrs wp
filled it might empty itself of bad air, with
out blowing back into the Iwllows. Two
other assistants stood by tho batteries to
make the connections ut the word.
At tho word "now," every well-trained
head and hand began to work all in har
monyand quietly. No sound at first but
the slow wheezing of the bellows and the
measured "thud, thud" of the piston
of the air pump. The clotted blood from
the heart pourd into the receiver at first
like a brown jelly, which, after a few mo
ments. WHS thinner at lnur a c frit a n V tU!

nr n rvi litwk-l T . ... . . i .
wuim uiuw. , n was noticed tnar tne Diooa
mixture in the inr was perceptily lower
ing. Tho professor of physiology
withdrew the aspirating needles, and stood
with dilated pupils and flushed face. The
chest of tho dead man was moving regular
ly. He grasped the pulse and said, in a
wisper' "A tremor! a tremor!" And then
applying his ear to the chest for a moment
sprang up and cried out in an excited
manner "By Gd, it moves! I can feel
its impulse !" A shout went up from every
One. but followed in ft ninmnt tiv n iLuitv
stillness, for the swollen eyes ot the dead,
were seen to roll in their sockets, and
each one hxiked at the other as much as to
say : "What have we done in restoring this
man to life and sulferingi" The battery at
the heart and abdomant were now discon
nected and nearly all the semblance of life
was observed. Nearly two pints of the
blood mixture had entered the veins. This
was now cut off, and artificial respiration
only kept up. The pulse could be counted
irregular, and over one hundred per minute.
The face of the subject was no longer livid,
but rather pail. The eyelids were half
closed, and eye-balls rolling; the pupils
were discovered contracting and dilating
according as they were shaded or exposed
to light. Some nitrite of amyl waB held to
tho valve of the bellows, for breathing was
not through the mouth or nostrils, and in
stantly the eeartbeat more steadily, the face
became of better color, and the chest jerked
as if there was a desire to cough. At this
junction tho professor of physiology said :
Gentlemen, our experiments thus far are
successful. This man is living again, but
can have no thought, because the mass of
brain is to nearly severed from tho cord.
No act of will, Ht least, can be performed.
A spinal cord is itself the motor centre of
the body, and as long as wo keep up arti
ficial breathing the body will live."
He then proceeded to drill several holes
as large as a sewing-needle in various
parts of the skull, and touch the brain with
the galvanic points, which caused the legs
to jerk, the hands to clench, the eyes to
roll, open, shut, and the tongue to protrude.
A full description of the anatomical points
and physiological observations was careful
ly taken down, and will doubtless appear
in the medical periodicals.
The experiment concluded by withdraw
ing the bellows and closing the opening in
tho windpipe by adhesive plaster and all
were startled by a sudden cough from the
dead man and a rolling of tho head, with
moaning souuds like ono exhausted by suf
fering. This followed by convulsive action
in the limbs, a fixing of tho eyes and appear
ance of a second death. The body becime
cool in twenty minutes. The whole experi
ment lasted from 11 :30 P. M. to 13 :20 A. m.
Thursday ,or fifty minutes. The wholo mat
ter "was conducted with decorum aud skill;
there was, in fact, little conversation, aid
no levity. As our reporter passed out of
tho room ho was shown a barrel which con
tained the remains of Mr. Merrick, just tu
they were sent from the court-room,
