EE3 WEIGHT GSEATLY INCREASED Elsie Winkler of New York Recov ered Tower of Speech, and the Epi leptic Attack Iteenine Lea I re (jnent 'and l.e Severe What a Phylclan Think of the Case. Considerable Interest has been at tracted to the case of Elsie Winkler of New York, the sixteen-year-old girl who has been under X ray treatment for epileptic fits at the Postgraduate hospital in New York for several weeks past. The girl's case is the first in the United States so far as is known in which X rays have been employed in the treatment of epileptic affections, and the improvement of the patient sinco the experiment litis been in prog ress has been marked, says the New York Times. The girl's present malady followed nn attack of diphtheria when she was ten years old, lu which antitoxin was used. The immediate consequence of the.. diphtheria was the partial paralysis of the right arm, and epileptic fits fol lowed in the course gt ft few weeks. These increase,!' in severity and fre quency jiS 'a year passed, until the general condition became alarm ing. Treatment by bromides failed to relieve her, but seemed rather to de velop skin eruptions, which aggravated her suffering. When the girl was taken to the Post graduate hospital some weeks ago, the paralysis of the arm was such as to render it useless, the fits were of daily and sometimes seinidally occurrence, and the child could not speak with suf ficient clearness to give an intelligible account of herself. Her mother, who accompanied her, was obliged to state tho history of the illness. Dr. J. II. Branth of New York sug gested treatment by X rays. The mother consented, telling of the pre vious prescribing of bromides. These were ordered discontinued, and the X ray treatment begun, as it has been carried out during the subsequent weeks. The immediate result was an improvement in the child's general con dition and speech nnd the diminution of the skin eruption. Then the epilep tic attacks become less frequent and less severe, until at the present time they occur not oftener than once in two weeks. The child has now so far recovered her voice that she speaks with distinctness, although slowly. Her complexion Is nearly clear and her weight considerably increased. Further than to take cognizance of tho results of the X ray treatment In this individual case, physicians famil iar with It are disinclined to speak. Dr. liranth said that the use of X rays in cases of epilepsy was a matter that could not be determined by the devel opment of a single case, but he did not hesitate to speak of .the success so far attained In the present instance. "I will say so much," he said, "that whether the X ray treatment is shown to act in epilepsy or not it may bo ad vised in such cases for its 'beneficial results on the general condition of the patient. This girl in the Postgraduate hospital has shown wonderful Improve ment ia the few weeks in which she has been under treatment".' Dr. Branth was asked to speak of the pathological nsnec's of the case. He said: "The conclusion must not be formed, even if we are shown to be successful in cases such as this one, that all cases of epilepsy will yield to X ray treat ment. In cases like that of this girl the theory accepted at present for ex plaining the disease is that its exist ence depends upon cellular instability. The primary seat of the convulsion is in the cortex of the brain and the sec ondary scat tho medulla, oblongata. My belief is that if the X rays have ef fect it Is iu whipping together the brain cells into normal action. That, of course, is entirely conjectural, be cause the theory of epilepsy is con jectural also." Drnta PoUah.

VOYAGE Plans of Two Frenchmen to Cross Atlantic Ocean. ES0EM0U3 BALLOON BEIM EUILT. It Will Cnrry a Bnaket For Sleeping, One For Making Scleutinc Observa tion nnd a Jionsinkabie Boat. Geographer Ilecln and Aeronaut Capnzza Will Start From Canary Islauda. An attempt to cross the Atlantic ocean iu an air ship is about to be made by Elisee Recljis, a noted French geogra pher, aud Louis Capazza, the Inventor of tho parachute balloon and an aero naut who distinguished himself a few years ago by making a daring trip over the Mediterranean sea from France to Corsica, says the Paris correspondent of the New Y irk World. V. Pecatte, the secretary of the Auto club of France, gives the following facts about the projected balloon voy age, which will be made for the pur pose of meteorological investigation. j . The start will be made from the Ca nary islands about the middle of next May., An enormous balloon is being built for the trip four times larger than tlw largest ever made. It will have a capacity of about -hj.OOO cubic feet and will be spherical In shape and will bo ititlated with hydrogen gas. The balloon will have two baskets. The upper one will be furnished like a cabin, for sleeping; the lower one will contain the necessary registers and scientific instruments. The principal accessory will be a nonsinkable boat equipped with a sixty horse power mo tor and fuel for a twenty day run, Reclus and Capazza will be accompa nied by two sailors. i It is calculated that the probabilities are that the balloon may land at one of three points near the mouth of the Amazon river, near the Island of Trini dad or in Yucatan, Mexico. From the island of Palma, in the Canaries, the distance to Para. B-ruzil, is 2.CO0 miles, to Trinidad 3,100, to Y'ueatan, crossing the Caribbean sea, 4,900. The highest average speed of the wind is reckoued at fifty miles an hour and the lowest thirty. Making only the slowest speed over Jli'e greatest distance, the time re quired will be six days and nineteen hours. Going at the highest speed the shortest distance the time required rwill be two days and four hours. The balloon will be provided with means of changing lt3 course north or south and may choose a landing at any point on the north coast of South 'America. In case of accident the bul loonists can take refuge In the non sinkable boat, taking sufficient food for six weeks. They have no fear of incurring the fate of Andre, who was lost in the arctic regions, for the region they seek is more, quiet, the winds are more certain and the balloon is ade quate. They prefer to start from the Cana ries because if they went from tho Mo rocco coast or Portugal there would be great danger of being caught in a con trary breeze and landed in the midst of the desert of Sahara or in the Medi terranean, The scheme is being taken up with great enthusiasm by the Aero club of France and Is exciting tremendous in terest in ballooning circles all over Eu rope. James Gordon Bennett is credit ed with contributing $-10,000 to it. Soujr of tlie Una 1'olnter. .'Instead of cheering when they mako bullseyes our sailors of the European squadron enliven target practice with "The Gun Pointers' Song," written and sung after "The Good Old Summer Time," says a Washington dispatch to the New York Herald. Here it Is: There's a period each day when it's all work and no play, 1 And that's tho "Morris tuhe" time; iWe swat those old trays, and the targets j we faze I -ft the good old loading time. ,'We bore Bight the guns and bring; shells on the run And "continuous aim" all the time. And when time comes to shoot we are there; hear us hoot ; In the good old shooting time. CHOKU3. In the good old shooting time, In the good old shooting time.

From Tunis we'll sail, never thinking we'll fail To smash it In two every time; So in Florida bay you will hear them all : say They worked in the summer time. CHORUS. I There'll be shooting some day When we're shooting for pay. i And that's the real record time; ! On the shores of Key West ' We'll all do our best In the good old record time.

Talking about Sarsaparilla Ever hear of any other than Ayer's? t&& CHAMPION GUNNER OF NAVY What Trainor'a Mate Thiuk of HI ( Shooting Kiploit. Hearing very modestly his title "the champion gunner of the United States navy," II. W. Trainer, a seaman on board the battle ship Indiana, is loath to speak about his shooting exploit at target practice a few weeks ago off Marthas Vineyard, says the New York World. Truinor made the phenomenal score of piercing a bullseye at 1,000 yards' distance with an S Inch turret gun and followed that with three more shots which went through the aperture made by the first ball. The target was fifty two Inches in height and thirty-two inches wide, and the battle ship was going at an eight knot clip in a choppy sea, which makes the score nil the more remarkable. The four shots were made in 2 minutes and 18 seconds. Trainor enlisted in the navy two years ago as a common landsman, com ing from St. Paul, Minn. He never had handled a rille or gun previous to his enlistment. His only practice has been with the big guns on board the training ship Lancaster and the Indi ana. "I don't think that you ought to give me all the credit" said Trainer the oth er afternoon. "Harry Ilngberg, who Is ou the same gun crew as I am, also made four bullseyes while at target practice. I have always handled the big guns, and I was positive that I could make a couple of bullseyes when we were to go out for practice." "He certainly did n.ake a fine show ing, mate," said one of the men who were standing around. "When we saw him plunk the four shots one ofter an other through the same hole we all cheered him. He's all right." Wrhito this was being said of Trnlnor be blushed like a schoolgirl. "Why don't you speak to Ilngberg?" said Trainor. "There he sits up there. He's the fellow who made as good a score as I did, and he certainly ought to get just as much credit" "That's right," chorused his mates "Come down here, Ilagberg, and have your picture taken and be Interviewed like every great man." Ilagberg is a tail, lanky, light haired chap and Is just ns modest in bearing as Trainor. He also before his enlist ment never handled a gun, and both the officers and men on board the Indi ana, from the captain down to the cab In boy. would wager any amount that both these men can outshoot any two in the navy. Lieutenant Commander A. C. Hodg son has nothing but the highest praise for the gunners on board the ship, and he is confident that they are the best in the world. NEWEST FAD IN FURS. Why Furrier Decided to Make Mole akin i'opular i ll In Season. That soft earth colored fur moleskin Is In great vogue this fall, says, the New York Press. Women who dress carefully will greet it as a relief from the monotonous gray squirrel and the showy ermine. There is small chance of moleskin becoming common this winter. Owing to the demand mole pelts are extremely scarce, and a muff and stole' cannot be bought for less than 200. Nor is moleskin used only for outer garments. Dressmakers use a great denl of it for gown trimming, and mole decked evening gowns will be worn by many fashionable women. One furrier Is blending mole with er mine, and the contrast Is striking. Milliners are not slow to realize that moleskin is the rage, and a toque com posed completely of it is appraised at SoO. A furrier said of tho newest fad in furs: "Not through any preference are we pushing moleskin. I tell you every fur is so scarce that furriers do not know which way to turn. To wear fine furs in America now really de notes prosperity, as velvet gowns did thirty years ago. This popularity in America has depleted the supply, and in the markets of Europe, prices are soaring. It is almost Impossible to buy sable. Mink is scarce, and gray squir rel is more expensive than ever. If the demand for ermine continues, the little white animal will be, almost extinct. The fur markets of Europe are emp tied. The furriers conferred a year ago and determined to launch a new fur. ,They settled on mole because of its commonness. The dunes of Scot land are alive with moles, and in New York state they are plentiful. At that time moleskins were worth only 20 cents each. Now we must pay as high as 75 cents for a pelt" Mme. Rejane, the French actress, re ceived a moleskin coat from a furrier a year age). The soft, lustrous fur was becoming, and the grayish black color was suitable to every gown. When Rejane wore the gift of the furriers the Parisians stared in wonder. They did not know whether it was a new fangled velvet or a new idea In plush. But as the winter in Paris went on other moleskin garments appeared. This year every woman of fashion will be showing the new fur. Arable Japan.

KIND WORD FOR TURKS Dr. Harper Discusses Conditions In the Sultan's Country. KO DISOBDEB OS MU5KEME33 rrealdent of ChlcaffO Inlver.lty Say. He Did Sot See a Single Iatoilcated Man-Trip In Qne.t of Permlaaloa .. s r .. I to Excavate Rolna of Ancienn"'" Declared Highly Saecewful. - "The Turk does not deserve all the opprobrium that has been thrown upon him." This statement was made by President William R. Harper of the University of Chicago the other day in telling of his experiences In Con stantinople, where he went for the pur pose of securing a firman giving the university the right to excavate the ruins of ancient cities in the neigh borhood of ancient Babylon, says the Chicago Tribune. "The Turks have received much un just abuse," continued Dr. Harper. "There are many things we should take into consideration before passing judgment on Turkey as a governing power in Europe. We are accustomed to think that Turkey has made no progress. If we compare the condi tions in Turkey today with those which existed twenty-nine years ago when Abdul Hamid came to the throne it is found that the progress made is amazing. "We were iu Constantinople for the celebration of the sultan's birthday an niversary. The streets were crowded, but I saw no disorder and no drunk enness. I did not see a single man In toxicated all the time I was in Tur key. I cannot say that Abdul Hamid is popular with all the people. There are two parties, and that Is where all the trouble lies. The officials are afraid that members of the younger and rad ical party will assassinate the sultan. If this happens no one will be safe in Turkey, and anarchy will prevail." Dr. Harper would not say whether he believed there was ground for in terference by Christian nations in Turkish affairs because of alleged atrocities against Armenian and Mace donian Christians, but said that ids sympathies had changed greatly. Dr. Harper considers that his mis sum to the Turkish capital was suc cessful. Ho expects to receive a cable gram soon telling him the suitan has issued the necessary firman. "We were accorded the best of treat ment in official Constantinople," said the president "We first met Hamdi Bey, director of all the Imperial mu seums. He aided us greatly, and, with his help, our petition to the sultan was properly framed and presented. We received assurances from Turkish offi cials that our requests would be grant ed. We were there while the Aruer- 1 lean war ships were in the harbor as a result of the Magelssen affair. Our petition could not have been presented , at a more opportune time. The gov ; ernmcnt was then disposed to show fa j vors to Americans. Permission to j make the excavations will carry with ; It the guarantee of safety for our par ' ties. Soldiers will be sent by the Turk ! ish government with each party to pro : tect it from the Bedouin Arabs." J Dr. Harper said that about $.10,000 ; annually had been guaranteed for ten I years to carry out the research .work, j He intimated that the money had been ' promised by Mr. Rockefeller, i While In Germany President Harper i visited Dr. Herman E. von Hoist, for 1 merly head professor of history at the University of Chicago. Professor von j Hoist ia critically ill. He sent by Dr. , Harper messages to the board of tru ' tees, the faculty and the students of l the university. 'Dr. Harper will de j liver the messages at the unveiling of j the oil painting of Professor von Hoist now on the way to the United States. DR. WILEY'S NEW TESTS. Chief Chcmlat Expect a Ruh to Join HI Wine Sqnad. The "poison squad," commanded by Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, chief chemist of the agricultural department at Washington, will have an opportunity to "look upon the wine when it Is red," says the New York World. On Oct. 1 tho, experiments in adulterations will i be resumed. Wine is exnected tn fi"- ure prominently on the menu, as sali cylic acid will be the preservative forming the basis of experimentation. Word has been passed nround that a dozen new volunteers are desired. It is expected the prospect of wine will bring forward a rush of those willing to be sacrificed in the interest of sci ence. During his former period of running n government boarding house Dr. Wi ley disposed of borax and formalde hyde. He will now conduct thorough and exhaustive tests with salicylic ocid. When asked regarding hi3 future course Dr. Wiley said: "Salicylic acid is a preservative used only ia liquids, such as wines beers and simps, and it is with this drug that we will make our forthcoming tests. Will I feed the boarders on wine and beer? Ha, ha, ha! Maybe I will put the salicylic add in water and give em that Salicylic acid is tasteless. But about using wines and beers well, If that information gets out there'll be a rush. I guess we won't have any trouble in getting subjects. The diffi culty will be in getting rid of appli cants." On a shelf In Dr. Wiley's office an ar ray of long necked wine bottles, squat vessels labeled "Ale" and other assort ed beverages are visible. Looking at them, Dr. Wiley said: "These are for investigation. Salicyl ic acid is contained in inferior grades of such things and in communion wine, the nnfermented variety." THE OUTCOME OF A GAME Original. Otis Lawpenee and I were chums be fore his marriage and continued to bo chums after his marriage, although I confess I was greatly disappointed that Grace Horton married him instead of me. That his marriage did not break off 'our intimacy was due entirely to Otis, who was ignorant of my attach ment for the woman no niarueu, ana i could not turn away his invitations to be a frequent visitor io u' uuu-. by day I grew irritated agamsi mm. Otis had one weakness a immhiu tor gambling; not that ho visited the regu h. enmblinff houses, for he did not but he played at home. He would gath er a party of friends nearly every night and the play was aiwajs very mgn. This his wife did not know. She was aware that he played for money, but supposed the amounts were trifling. Otis gradually collected all sorts of im plements for gambling. One Saturday afternoon In June ns I was about to leave my office for a half holiday Otis dropped In and told me that he had bought a roulette table. Would I go with him and see the ball spin? He insisted. I yielded. On reaching his house we went tr what he called the smoking room, di vested ourselves of our coats snd vests, lighted cigars and sat down at the rou lette table. There is something fasci nating in watching the little ball spin rapidly around for awhile, then begin to coquette with the different pockets, rolling toward one, striking a point aud nearly being knocked Into another, poised for a moment on the edge of a third, never settling Into its choice till the excitement of the watchers has reached fever heat Otis was banker. He won all the money I had about me; then I began to give him due bills. About 4 o'clock I added these amounts and found that I was bankrupt It was plain to me that Otis had grown frightened at my large bets. He had a wife and a child, and if in stead of the bank having broken me I had broken the bank It would have been terrible. The fires of hell were burning within roe. This man had de prived me of the woman upon whom I had set my heart, and now he had tak en every dollar 1 possessed. A a drowning man will catch at a straw I ran my hands through my pockets and felt a coin the size of a half dollar. I drew it from its place and in doing so dropped it and it rolled under a lounge. I arose to get it "Never mind." snld Otis. "What was itr "Fifty cents, I believe." "Very well; it's safe. Make your bet" I bet on the number giving the high est returns. The ball spun around, dallied here and there, then dropped Into my number. From this on I had an astonishing run of luck till I had won back ?100 of my losses. I played on, the luck continuing with me. Din- ! ner was announced, but we paid no at tention to It. At 11 o'clock I had re gained all I had lost besides a consid erable sum from Otis. He figured hi losses and in a trembling voice an nounced that they were $0,000, or near ly ? 1,000 more than he could possibly pay. I had broken the bank. The revenge I had coveted now that ' it was attained suddenly turned bitter, i After the first exciting moment of realization that I had saved what I s possessed, won all Otis had and placed him In the position I was In when I i found the half dollar a revulsion came , over me. He was my friend and had ; never injured me. I had loved the ; girl who was his wife, and his child was devoted to me. Nevertheless I had ruined him and ruined his wife and child. i "Otis," I said, "when I had lost all 1 this afternoon I found a half dollar, j with which I retrieved everything and j broke your bank. It rolled under thnt j lounge. Go and find it and see what i you can do with It. My opinion is that j there's rare luck In it" j He went to the lounge, got down on the floor, found the piece and brought It to the table. I noticed a curious ex ! pression on his face and turned my j eyes from it to tho coin. It had rather j the look of german silver than the true white metal, j "That's no half dollar," said Otis, j "It's a check for something." I It was a check for an umbrella that j I had carried for a week. I had re- gained my fortune and won Otis' for j tune on a valueless bit of metal. We J stood looking at each other wjille the j truth was breaking over us. His for ! tune was his own. and he was entitled to mine. The remembrance of that moment al ways gives me great satisfaction. In stead of experiencing a disappointment I felt a pleasure. I preferred that Otis should possess the money. Ills wife and child would share it with him, and, ns for me, 1 was young and would dou ble my efforts to retrieve my losses. There was a grato In the room, and Otis, without speaking, gathering the due bills, both his own and mine, took them tiiere; then, striking a match, ho lighted them. When they were burned, he came to me with outstretched hand, saying: "The game's a draw, old man, and Us the last game that will ever bo played in this house and the last time I'll ever play for money." Breaking up his gambling utensils, he stuffed them in the grate, and while they were burning we went down stairs to a good supper. I tried hard to Induce Otis to tako tho money that was due him, but failed, rears afterward I managed to enable him to make a similar amount In a business deal, but at that time I was rich. Our friendship today is like steel. WESTCOTT ATWELL.
