terview in support of his mother was
the most striking human interest ut

whole sensational case.

Herbert E. Sherburne has lived for
twenty-six years without being able
to move a single muscle in his body
except those which control his speech,
without changing the position of hi;;
body the fraction of an inch and with
out the slightest hope of ever moving
Today was the anniversary of Mr.
Sherburne's "taking to his bed," and
he observed the occasion by holding
a reception in his bedroom. He is
still an optimist, for today he told
his friends "what is to be is to be,
and that's all there is to it."
"I manage to get along pretty well."
he declared, "the only thing that
troubles me now is that I lost the
sight of one eye about a year ago.
and I can't see very well out of the
other, so I ve had to give up my
reading. I've been interested in base
ball, and for years I had the box
scores of every big league team right
in my head. I could tell you the bat
v ting average of every player, too, but
this year I haven't been able to read
much and I've kind of slipped up.
Polities is another subject that I was
always interested in. Teddy Roose
velt was my special hero."

this store would.
