There is living today a man prominent In Sew York society, the head of a great banking institution and the director and advisor In many rich corpora tions, whose life was nearly wrecked by this woman. His salvation was due to the Intervention of friends rather than to his own foretbooght or will power, for he had become not only tbe dupe bnt the slave of this most fascinating woman.

Blavatoky and many others like nicteora have flashed from obscurity into the senith of tempo rary power and popularity. They are tbe most startling phenomena of history, and their name, survive by reason of the mys tery that attaches to tljoir origin and tbe amazing audacity of tbeir career)). Tbe right name'of this woman, if in deed sho bad a logol right to any name but that of her more unknown and equally mysterlona mother. Is uncertain, but It is believed to be Gilbert. She said her name was Maria Dolores Eliza Kosanna Gilbert, and that ber father was aootebman, cap tain in the Knglish service, and her moth er a Spanish Creole born in New Orleans. In some cf ber latest writing she substi tuted the name Porris for Bosanna, and while at first she claimed that she was born in Scotland In 181? in her later years she declared that she was born in 1830 In Llmeriok, Ireland. If Captain Gilbert, the father of Lola Montez, was not a myth, he was a scamp, for although Lola speaks of him In a clover fiction intended to bo ber autobiography there is no evidence of his appearing on the stage in any scone of her romantic and varied career. Tbo mother Is said to have been very beautiful. She appeared la England while ber child was but little more than an in fant. In London this woman taught singing, dancing, Spanish and French, so that ber daughter came naturally by those accomplishments that subsequently brought her into such great prominence. Lola Mod tea was of medium height, beautifully formed, and at tbe age of 19 was sought for by artiste as a model. Her hair was long, thick, silky and of the blue black hue that denoted the Spanish ances try of which she was so proud. Her com plexion waa a warm olive and ber eye. a dark bluisn gray. Her features were neither regular nor classical, but were full of changing expression. Uer mouth was perfect, ber teeth even and white and ber forehead low and broad, but the charm, so potent with ber that it made peasants and princes her slaves, lay in her bewitching manners. In ber nineteenth year Lola Montez. who had already won metropolitan noto riety by her original and grooeiul dancing, married Captain James of the Knglish army. A short time before this her mother, whoso reputation in London was far from enviable, and who was still a handsome woman, crowned an erring career by running away with a married man, an attache of the Spanish embassy to tbe court of at. James. Captain James iiu mediately after bis marriage was sent to India, and be took bis wife with him. At first she seemed to be a model of all tbe proprieties, for she could look and act like a nun when she chose, but eoon after reaching Calcutta her inherited and cultivated tendencies as serted themselves. Young, beautiful and strangely accom plished, Lola soon became a great social favorite In the Indian capital and tbe toast of all the gny young officers at then? clubs. Although the European society in India was much less constrained than In London yet Lola Montcs's contempt for the ordinary proprieties eoon brought ber name into unenviable prominence. Her daring flirtations became tbe talk of tbe city. Soon women dropped her, ana even single men feared to have their names as sociated with hers. . At length Captain James' patience be came exhausted. Failing to check the scandalous eocentriclties of his wife, a se rious quarrel took place. Tbe result was that without a word of warning Mrs. James packed up her belongings and in formally started back to Europe. She went directly to Paris, where she At once found employment as a Spanish dancer, and here lur tbe first time she ap peared befaret he world under tbe now well known name of Ixla Montez, or tbe mountain flower or seed, as it is in Span isb. She was now about 83 years of age and la the very prime of a tropkwl, vigaroos womanhood. Lola Moo tee began dancing In an obscure place of entertainment, but so great was ber power of fascination ana so undoubted ber abUit? a a dancer that soon managurs were bidding exorbitant sums for her aervicea, aad the gay Paris Inae were disooaaing bar as a zoodorn woav dor. Artists sought for the privilege of paint. Ing her, poets sang ber praises' and states men taouwfat Is ao discredit to visit I splendid vjartroents, where she held hwsas twice a weak. Har imagination was quite in keeping "Kb. bar other taieets. To the frontalis who came to ber far tbe.stayy ao two aHsa, but all shrouded la mystery aao aiuuy mating that tne blood of the Spanish Bourbons filled ber veins, And that tome day she might be able to show that .be bad a right to the throne. - From Parle ber fame spread through Europe, and it was planned to take ber on A starring tour through all tbe gnat capi tals, but aba got no farther than Munich, tae capital of Havana. Lola Montez, though Always improvi dent, was At this time comparatively rich. Her income was about 12, MO a week, and tbe jewels presented to ber might well have excited the envy of a queen. She bad a retinue of servant, and she took with her from Paris her own coach and four. . - At this time Munich, the capital of In dependent Bavaria, was, next to Paris, tbe gayest, most brilliant and corrupt cap ital tn r n rope, ana ixrais i was its king. Her fame bad preceded ber, eo that the advent of Lola Montez to Munich partook of tbe nature of an ovation. Tbe students of tbe university turned out to meet ber, bands serenaded her tbe night of ber ar rival, and tbe public prints, half in loke and half in earnest, called her "the un crowned queen of Bavaria, " little dream ing tbe prophecy there was in the compli ment. - The first night she appeared at the the. ater tbe king was in the royal box. From tbe instant heseteycaon "the great Span ish dancer," as she was called, Louis of Bavaria became ber slave, destined to re main so till his kingdom was shaken to its foundations, and In the upheaval that followed he was shaken from the throne. - A woman of stronger principles and with more stability of character than Lola Montez might have been tempted by the dazzling prospects before ber when she saw the king of Bavaria at her foot. But this was tbe game she was playing for, and, if surprised at all, it was at the ease with which she accomplished ber end. The king proposed to marry ber, but as loon as be hinted at his purpose the min istry was up in arms. Not daring to run counter to tho wishes of his subjects, Louis gave up all thoughts of an open marriage, but to free his favor ite from the charge of being a plebeian he determined to confer on ber the title of countess of Landsfeld. Against this his ministers protested. Not only Munich, but the whole of Bavaria, took sides, and so bitter and stubborn did the fight become that ITinio Minister Abel and all his asso ciates in the king's cabinet resigned. At this time a large sum of money wits raised by the nojjlos and rich men of the kingdom, who were auxious to save tbnir nation and sovereign from disgraco, and with this they tried to bribe Lola Montez to leave the country forever. Her scorn ful reply was: "I can win all the money I care for in any city I'gn to, bur where can I go to gut another king's love?" And now the students, who bad wel comed her at first, took sides, the majori ty hooting ber when she appeared on tbe Btreets, for at this stage of affairs she had given up her publie dancing. Infuriated at tbe students, the king, acting on the advice of Lola Montez, it U said, closed the university and threw into jail the student leaders. By this time the kingdom was not only stirred to its depths, but in many of the provinces the sturdy Germans broke into open revolt. Too late the infatuated Louis discovered that for the sake of an unknown adven turess he bad thrown away the regal in heritance of his fathers. The rebellion reached tbe capital, and to save himself the king was forced to abdicate and seek Kfugo in an out of the way castle. Lola Montez was not permitted to accom pany the king, but she was warned to leave Bavaria at once. Consulting her own safety, she fled to London, where for some months she lived in seclusion. After vain efforts to renew communica tions with the dethroned king Lola Mon tez, wholly indifferent to the fact that she bad never been divorced from ber first bus band, who was still living, married anoth er English officer, named Captain Heald. She lived with Heald a short time, when, learning that she was about to be prose outed for bigamy, she fled to Madrid. She at first thought of entering a con vent, but changing ber mind she sold most of ber jewels and started for Austra lia. Her mental gifts and versatility can be Imagined from the fact that on the ship she prepared a series of lectures descriptive of her own stirring life and delivered these with great success and profit to the auti podeans. Lola Montez soon exhausted Australia. Her success there led her to believe that she could win in tlw United States, so she sailed for California. She bad not been in San Francisco six weeks when sho met and married a Mr. Hull. This she could now do without fear, as both James and Heald were dead. Her married life with Hull was charac teristically brief. She inuurinud him wealthy, and he was well off when they 1aV . v f A i n GRAVE or LOLA MOSTEZ IS CiEEEKWOOD CEMETEUT. first met, but there was bat little perma nency In California fortunes in those days. "lean support One, but not two," she said to Hull when oho good naturally unae farewell in San Francisco. Again adrift, poor and friendless, this remarkable woman made her war to New Orleans, where she again resumed ber iKinnng. ner success was far from en eooraging. With failins health she made her way to New York, preceded by tbe story of ber remarkable career. There she tried writing and did publish a work on "Woman. Love and Sniritualism." which bad a larger sale than Its literary value Her winnbw wars remained with ber. And in tbe day of ber sore distress kind friends were not wanting. For tbe Last year of her life she was dependent on char ity. She died In Astoria, K.

A New Clinic at the Illinois Med ical College. Ammker CHUB OF PSYCHOTHEBAPETJTICS. slatlssA et ltypasllssn saad Crlaas Pie Saaaar larkya Bays a Hoar. Trae steal Xatare Caw Hevar Ba Hy.aitl.ii A Blval the Sold Care. A chair of peyeho-theraMUtiOB, or hyp notism, is on Innovation, in tbe curricu lum of tbe Illinois Medical college, at Chi cago. The official recognition of hypno tism in medical colleges Is common enough abroad, but is new to this country. Br. Herbert A. Parkyn, recently of Mlnneano- Jis, fills tbe new chair. Dr. Parkyn claims to nave hypnotised more persons than any physician in the country. He estimates the number of patients whom be-has treat ed by hypnotism within the hast two years at 1,200. r I Dr. Parkyn is a native of Toronto and received a medioal education at Queen's university, Kingston, Ont. He afterward did postgraduate work at tbe Mcill Med ical college, Montreal, and also at tbo To ronto university. Early in but course be became Intensely interested in and made a special study of the nsycholoiry of atten tion and strove to develop his knowledge of tbe science of hypnot ism throughout his entire course. Dr. Parkyn determined to make a specialty of psycho-therapeutics and At the close of his college course practiced lor several years In bis native city of To ronto. In 1804 be went to Minneapolis. whore be became connected with the Uni versity of Minnesota. - Dr. Parkyn entertains very pronounced opinions on the relations between hypno tism and crime: "That point has been abused most shamefully. It bos been handled by Ignorance, misapprehension and narrow mlndedness. There is no closer relation between hypnotism and crime than there is between tbo waking state and crime, in fact, tbe relation is exactly tbe same. A man's true moral nature can never be hypnotized. Natural criminals might be incited to crime while hypnotized, but they could also be induced to commit tbe same act while tn the wak ing state. A practical criminal sukkcs- tion given to a pure minded subject will cause bis moral nature to so revolt at the critical time that he will be thrown out of the hypnotic condition into bis objective J sea. i know this to be true from hun dreds of experiments which I have made personally. In fact, I have made this sub- DR, HERBERT A. PARKTK. Jeot a special study. I have run down ev ery sensational newspaper story bearing on tbe subject of hypnotism and crime and have invariably found It tbe work of some irresponsible correspondent. Tbe stories were barefaced lies as far as tbe Influence of hypnotism for evil was concerned. . "I carried on an exhaustive series of experiments in this line at St. Paul last winter and came very near getting a se vere thrashing from a printer to whom I suggested while be was In tbe hypnotic state that be assassinate a physician pre. ent and steal his watch. Tbe same condl tion of moral sleeplessness prevails In women as well as men. If I wished a crime committed, I would have to take a person who would do it while In pontics sion of his objective senses, for-1 never could induce him to do it otherwise, even though he were to all appearances com pletely under my control. The laws gov erning this science are like oil tbe rest of nature's laws, as strict and rigid as tbe law of gravity, and they never foil. When our jurists study these laws for themselves tbe names of hypnotism and crime will forever cease to be linked together. ' 'What diseases have you found to be benefited by hypnotic treatment?" "Every physician who understands the mind uses tbe element of suggestion In his treatment more or less. Personally I have used hypnotism with great success in all kinds of nervous troubles. Including epi lepsy, stammering, St. Vitus' dance, hys teria, asthma, rheumatism, sciatica and neuralgia. I have controlled the headache of typhoid fever, and it Is positively mar velous in curing that dread of all dread., a sick headache, for tbe patient is taught to put himself to sleep instantaneously. No matter how short thai sleep, the result is wonderful. I am also using hypnotism largely to control opium, cocaine and alco holic inebriety. A most profound state of anestbesla can also be produced by hypnotism, and in this way many opera tions have bean performed on patients who could not stand chloroform or ether." "I)o you hare any particular way of pro ducing nypnosiir "Oh, no. One must study tbe peculiar ities of bis patient nrst. Some meant will succeed in one ease and fall in ao other. There are many ways of bringing on tbe state, out tney an aim at tbe essi tial point to bold tbe attention ilosclj and solely upon a single thought or thing. Sometimes I have to work long and hard before I find the sorest and quickest way to hypnotize a patient, ana, again, I am likely to bit upon a plan that will gat aim la one minute. "The profession has been slow to remw nice hypnotism in any form, but It is now being surely brought into tbe prom ins. la which it should stand. At tbe last meeting of the American Medical s serai tion in Baltimore it was for the first tltae officially reonfrnizad in thla country as a therapeutic agent.
