Though the enrollment will not be completed until tomorrow It Is appar ent that the opening registration Is going to be greater than ever before In the history of the city.

Reese only "anted a demonstration of the power of the elixir of life on an animal and then he would place himself In the hands of the professor to kill and resurrect for the sum of $1000. Pro fessor Tietze recently came into a big estate in his own country, from which he was banished because of his advanced ideas, and this stipulation was no objection. If no subject was secured Professor Tietze was so con fident that he Intended to submit the treatment to other hands and himself become the subject. He also has plans to form a large stock company and build an institution for the per fection and application of his dis covery.
