rDBOPHOBlA A FAKE,
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
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
'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
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
screamed in a terrible way. When
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,
" '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."

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.

A Canine Treadmill.
"Churn dog" stories are always in
order. 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
