A remarkable case--a species of move
paralysis-has recently caused some tweal
discussion in medical circles, and case
serves to show the efficacy of the tion (
water cure. The case in ,question s his pi
that of Moses Plant, a little boy, ni he is
years old, the son of Armand Plant, 4 or bu
shirt manufacturer in this city." One over
day last spring the little fellow ol- Tb
plained of feeling ill. The ext r
morning when he attempted to rise the d
from the bed he found it impostible greet
to do so, as his legs refused to perform Path
4 their functions. In alarm, the family tor's
physician was sent for by the parents. repo
That gentleman, after examining the
child, declared be could do nothing
0 Different physicians were called i, and
but, while they all agreed ti4 it .ab and
an affection of the spine, nope sof phy
b them could promise to cure it. They To t
all volunteered to try, but the father let
did not accept their proffered servi
e ces, and searched for a physician
who could give him some hope. his
At last be was recommended to
he confer with Professor Janeway, of pa
the Bellevue Medical College, who cost
upon examination, said that the only
i a hope of recovery was in locking the setl
I boy's limnbs in a plaster of Paris cast.
The father declined, and was subse
hi fquently referred by l'rof. Janeway
to 'roft'. Yale. lie was of the same C
opinion as Prof. Janeway. cdi

Sdoctress residing in Brooklyn who by
was said to have performed some re- Ne
ot markalle cures, the almost distracted am
faither tfound the lady. She first tried
her method, but was not satisfied in
1n1'4 with the result. The father, wl]o had pre
been carefiully watching her progress, Gr
concluded that lie had better try some ob
t in one else. As a last resort he went to ea
a Dr. Taylor, who is a specialist in me
hip and similar diseases. That gen- en
kest tleman told him that his son could $t
never be cured. loi
a "How is that?" asked Mr. Plant, tir
the "all of the others gave mue some hope,
but you say that he can never be fri
cry cured." an
ory "Well," replied the doctor, "I don't
know how much money you have, m
ru' but I know that all the money you
his spend trying to cure your boy will be li
Iint At this frank avowal Mr.,Plant's
heart sank, and he started for home. h
SOn the way he met a friend who re
asn't sides in Minliqpolls, Minn. To him
A he spbke of his troubles. The friend
became interested, and informed Mr.
and Plant that while in Paris sone time tl
o ago he had been attacked withparal
ysis, and was given up by the best i
me physicians in France. He had, how- b
ever, heard of a Dr. Zolnowaki, a i
u physician in New York, who had be
m an come famous by curing patients by
the water care.
lie determined to try the water 1
lenc cure, and started for this city. After
It he some time spent aider Dr. Zolnows

into had ever been. This filled the dis
pros COuraged father with new hope, and
the next day he consulted I)r. Zol
stll nowski. The physician pronounced
rw - it a case of spinal hemorrhage, but
could not confidently promise to cure.
1k her The first day he was made to move
Sthte his legs. A short time after he was
enabled to walk with the aid of crut
t"ches, andl at the end of eight weeks

1o by a coirrpondent of the West Point T

od among many other good things:

lounge. One night, after I had re

be friend just arrived from Vicksburg,
and not even a blanket to give him.
't Will you, sir, as a great favor, per
Ve, mit him to occupy your lounge 1"
o "Certainly," I answered, "bring
he him in."
He came making apologies, and t
t said he had not brought a light lest in
me. he should disturb me. We fell into a
re- conversation and seemed so pleased w
with each 'other, differing on some ,
nd matters, but agreeing on many, that
Mr. we talked until the clock struck0

by were brought in, I said:
"Sir, you interested me so much

or "Sir," said he, "I was just about to
he make the same request of you. My
dis- name is McCardle."
and "I started back in astonisement.
Zol- "what!" said I "not Col. Wmin. H.

but "Yes, sir,' said he looking surprised;

nove "Good God! not Col. J. F. Clai

rut- -"Yes, sir, the same."
eeks We stared at each other for five
now minutes, and then ahearty laugh, and
The the clicking of glasses, and two more
