THB DURHAM WEEKLY GLOBE, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8. 8 M I1; s ' H flill HI in tit' !! l (I It I t 1 f tl M t - -! it r ' li rDBOPHOBlA A FAKE, i SO' SAYS SUPERINTENDENT HAN ! K1NSON, CF THE A. S. P. C. T. A. He -Jnow a Gooi! Deal About Dogs and ' "lyoesn't Believe That Many of Them do Mad Hydrophobia Is Imagination, fgvme of His Experiences With 'Cases. "Can a man scare himself to de&ta affttr having been bitten by a dog which 131 mad?" I asked Superintendent Han MnSon, of tho American Society for the Prevention of Cmelty to Animals, one day, as he eat in his little office on Tven-ty-second street. Jtlr. Hankinson is a good natured looking man with reddish hair, who is afraid of nothing and nobody: certainly not of hydrophobia quacks. "Why, certainly," he said, with de cision. "That man down in Asbnry Park who was bitten by a" cat was scared to death. lie never had hydro phobia. He died of nervous prostration brnght on by worry over an imaginary danger. His friends were all pitying hiia. and hoping he wouldn't die, and phiphesying that he would, and he was " a x&ln of nervous temperament, as edn catW people sometimes are, and it sim ply.lrilled hnn. I suppose he read up in the books about hydrophobia and it turned his head. That's all there was about it. Do you remember what a greaj; howl there was about those New ark boys who were bitten by a 'mad tiog,' and who were sent over to Pasteur to b 'cured?' " "Why, of course; whoTloesn't?" 'Well, it's quite easy to cure a disease thai-never existed. Those boys never had. hydrophobia and never would have had-it. The dog-fi didn't have it. Dur ing, that excitement we went to Newark and found a lot of dogs shut up. We asked to be allowed to take them away to o'ar stables, but the people wouldn't have it. Do you know what was done with those dogs After the excitement was all over they were given back to their owners, every one of them. Not one- was killed. Not one of them had anything worse than a fit. Why, our mes are constantly handling dogs, get bitten again and again, but they never dream of having hydrophobia. It's a rnylk.' There isn't any such thing." A CASH OF IMAGINATION. " Then you dou't believe in tho exist ence of such a disease?" 1 asked, think ing that, as Mr. Hankinson probably knovs more about animals than any other man in America, he must be good authority. 'No, I don't. There maybe such a disease, but I don't believe it. I never saw a case or knew of one positively." " Ilow about these doctors who cure it?" 1 asked. "fRhey don't cure anything. I asked a mswho makes a specialty of treating hydrophobia, as he calls it, if he ever saw oneingle case of hydrophobia to which he could swear. He refused to answer, but he told me this stoiy. A man came to him one day in terrible distress. lie had been bitten by a dog; he feared madness; he could not sleep at night and was afraid he was going to die. He Leased tho doctor to treat him. The doctor said it Vrtis too late; tho period of inocula tion had passed, and it would be no good now. If he had hydrophobia there was no way to stop it.' "The man went away, but came back the next day nearly frantic. Ho hadn't slept a wink and begged the doctor to do something for him. So the doctor took the man into his operating room and gave him a hypodermic injection of water just pure Croton water. lie went away, slept for the first time in two weeks and came back the next day for more water, and again the next, and was soon perfectly cured. Tho doctor told me that himself, and he professes to cure "hydrophobia. SHE WAS MAD. "Why," continued Mr. Hankinson, "I've had a woman in hysterics right in that chair you're fritting in because a dog had bitten her. She wanted mo to kill the dopr. I wouldn't do it Then she screamed in a terrible way. When sh Stopped 1 said to her: 'Madam, you onht to D0 ashamed of yourself. -A woman of your intelligence! You've interrupted the business of the oflice and drawn a big crowd under the window to listen to your yelling, and all for a whim. Some body told you you were going to go mad, and now you think yun ought to go mad and you'll be mad if you don't go mad. You just go home and say nothing about it and you'll be all right.' And sho did it. "Another woman brought her boy in. He had been bitten by a mad dog, and she wanted it shot, slit- said Tho boy looked perfectly well. " 'Now, look here,' said 1. 'you've been talking a good deal to the boy about this, haven't you? And the neighbors have too? And you've been telling him that he's likely to have hydrophobia, .haven't you?' " 'Yes, of course, we've talked about it,' said she. " 'Exactly,' said I. 'You've been tak ing 'the precise course likely to drive hiiimad or make him think himself so. YorOiave been trying to scare him to deaigi. If he were to go crazy it would be yipur fault. How is it, bub,' said I, tuning to the little fellow. 'You don't expert to go mad, do you?' "?So, he didn't think he should, he said. lie didn't feci any different. He was a brave little fellow. So 1 sent them home. too. and that was the last 1 heard of it. The dog had had a fit, that was all. It's a shame the way people will shoot valuable dogs just for a fit that might easily bo cured or avoided." Nevr York World. JKiurgeon reports that a young lady svbweu a hairpin while dressing. Th$e doctors .said it was only imigna tioa on her part. The hairpin was eventually found to have become lodged in Hie back part of her nose. It is stated that the fl-.-h of animals killed by electricity is ranch tenderer thin if the animals are killed in the ordinary way. This ia especially the cast in regard to fowls. PARNELL DIES. Something Interesting About the Death of the Great Irish Leader. Of the death of Parnell, the greatest Irish advocate, the morning telegraph bears this information : Parnell arrived at bis home at Brighton from Ireland Thursday, and complained of suffering from a chill. On Friday following he was unable to leave his bed, and his regular physician was summoned. He seemed to have considered Parnell's illness to have been of a serious nature, for he soon sent for another physician with whom he held a long consultation. This consultation of physician's was re sumed Sunday, when Parnell was found to be in great pain, and apparently grow ing weaker every hour. His sickness was pronounced to be an attack of rheu matism, and every attention and care was paid to the sufferer. He was care fully and untiringly nursed by his wife, who hardly left his bedside from the mo ment her husbandlf illness was pro nounced to be of a serious nature. Par nell, in spite of the care and attention which he received did not seem to rally from the rheumatism and grew weaker and weaker. Several hours before his death Parnell became unconscious and so remained till he died in intense agony. Owing to the suddenness of the Irish leader's illness and to the belief of his wife and attending physicians that he would recover, no friends or relatives of his family or that of Mr3. Parnell, were present at Parnell's bedside when he died. Mrs. Parnell and physicians were in attendance on him when he died. IN TOWN. The Names of Thoae Who Have Regis tered iu the City To-day.

A city man who used tc live on a farm, as so many city men did when they were boys, sends us this: "At home on the farm we had a number of cows, so many that churning was too heavy a task for even tie men folks, so Mr. L. rigged up a dog chum, an inclined wheel, a sort of canine treadmill. It became tne duty or .fonto, a large white mastm, to tread that monotonous cycle, and not withstanding the toothsome bit of meat that was fastened on a lath, within four inches of his nose, he was not at all proud of his position and responsibility. He made several attempts, to shirk his task, and twice succeeded. He got tc know when churning day came around as well as any one in the house. "On the morning of that day he would loiter about the kitchen door until he was fed, and as soon as he heard the note of preparation the bringing of the cream jugs, preparing the churn, etc. he would put for the woods and would not be seen again until night. The day oi churning was changed, and next morn ing a more crestfallen and astonished dog was never seen when ho was collared and harnessed to the beam which set the dash in motion; he looked positively fool ish. Ho did his work, but with lowered head, and in cogitation evidently. ' "On another occasion he tried anothei dodge. When they were about to put him on the wheel he ran up to his mis tress, holding up one paw, affecting tc be lame. She thought much of the dog, and was inclined to let him off that day. The next instant he was seen charging over a high fence after a neigh bors cat. 'Well,' said the- old lady, ii he can go after a cat like that he is able to churn. And he did, and never tried to shirk his work again." Forest and Stream. IF Yt 1712 li A CK A. CU KM, MJOVL are all worn out, really good fornotti ing, it is general debility.
