EDGE THEIR INVOLUNTARY ACTS MAKE THEM THE BUTT OF PITI LESS JOKERS Bangor, Me., March 20, Peter Pel ky, a French Canadian farmer of Macwadoc, claims to be the unluckiest man in Maine. When fresh eggs were selling in Bangor market at 48 cents a dozen, peter smashed 20 dozens by dropping a big basket on the icy ground at the railroad station. The accident was the result of Peter's in firmity. Poter is what is known in Maine as a "jumping Frenchman," af flicted with a nervous disease which renders him susceptible to the least disturbance or sudden noise. Just as he was placing the big basket of eggs ' tm the station platform a locomotive whistled nearby and be gave a yell 'and dropped hia burden, smashing all his egga into one great omelet Everywhere in northern Maine the nervous counterparts of Peter Policy may be found. Usually they do no great harm, but often their weakness leada to serious results, and under certain circumstances a "jumping "Frenchman" is a dangerous man to have around. Once in a lumber camp on the Penobscot, one of these strangely afflicted men, at the sudden ; command of a would-be joker, struck a fellow workman a fearful Wow on . the head with a sled stake. The blow nearly fractured the skull of the vic tim, and it was weeks before the vic tim could get out of his bunk. The "jumper" was whittling a stake with a big knife and the other woodsmen stood watching him, when the joker came along and suddenly yelled out: "Smash him!" Instantly the "jumper" mechanical ly responsive to any quick command, felled the man in front of him to the floor. The "jumping Frenchmen' have for generations been known as one of the peculiar institutions1 of northern Maine. They have no control over their nerves or muscles when taken oft their guard. A "Jumper" is liable to kill a man at an instant's notice and be no more, responsible for his act than would a mad bull or a runaway locomtive. Physicians say that "jumping'' is ihereditary, and there seems to be nei ther cure nor help. A 'French Cana dian boy in Aroostock county, the son of a famous "jumper," gave no sigh of the disorder until one Fourth of July when another boy fired a cannon cracker close to him. From that day he has been a nervous wreck, and the village jokers made his life miserable by startling him into exhibitions of his pitiful Infirmity. In some towns severe punishment awaits the man who la caught "jump ing" a ''jumper," and on several occa sions the friends of the "jumpers" have taken the law into their own hands. . It is not long since a Boston com mercial traveler was chased across the St. John River and far into the woods of New Brunswick by a mob of Infu riated French Canadians for having created a panio at a French church fair by teasing a "jumper" in the audi- lf -A h TT,", ." , t,f,.....,,.MHrK,,f i,,.

"Jump In!" yelled a Bangor steve dore to a "jumper" who stood on the capsill of a wharf, and Into the Penob scot the poor fellow dived.

Those In charge of the proposed organization arq working quietly to ascertain the general feel ing in the matter. ; After making a list of th young men of the city It nag, foeeri found that 6 are available, provided they can be induced to join th company. At th meeting held at the Commer cial club Tooma recently several of the young men present stated that they did not wish to join the company for fear of being called to. Mexico or of being called, out to serve In case of a strike. ' This same . difficulty was expert enced In Albuquerque, and for this reason a second company ' was. not formed at that place.
