Dr. Blanches, tbo great French specialist,
mentions three case, which he considered beyond the ordinary; a complete account of
these may be found In The Compete. Rendu
of lSOl In tbe flrst oi tbe cases mentioned
the patient was a woman, then 34 years of
age. Her first sleep came on when sbe was
about 18 and lasted forty-two days. Afterwards, for tbe next two years, she expert.
enced no trouble In waking and sleeping as
ordinary folks do until after a narrow escape
from death In a runaway accident. After
her nerves became quiet she tuoked the
drapery around her bed, closed her eyes and
quietly slumbered for the next two mouth*.
For the next four year, she exhibited no
abnormal traits of mind or body. Every
function seemed active, and tn no way diet
she show the least trace of a tendency towarl
narcolepsy. All outside appearances were
delusive, however, for after tbe regular
Easter feast on Easter Sunday, 18012, sbe fell
Into a profound slumber which nothing could
disturb in tbe least, and remained in that
condition almost a year, or until the middle
of March, 1S6U During theso eleven and a
half months her complexion remained ruddy
and healthy looking, notwithstanding the
fact that there was not a single evacuation
of the bowels during that period. Physicians
came from far and near, every effort wai
made to break the lethargy, but all attempt,
were futile. Two false front teeth were removed from the patient tn order to supply
her with nourishment, whicli consisted o."
soups, milk, beef tea, etc. At last account*
she was well, perfect In mind, with a good
pi-aspect of making up for the yeor lost In
sleep.
BHI! EXPECTED  UKKTCIlEN.
Ill tbo year 1380 two wonderful cases of
persistent narcolepsy were reported. In the
last week in January in that year the daughter of the mayor of Oramblro, a littlo village
near Bremen, Germany, failed to respond To
tho morning call, notwithstanding vigorous
efforts on tbe part of ber sisters to arouse
ber. At noon the father was luformed, but
remarked that tbe child was tired, baring
attended a village gathering tbe day before
where romping was Indulged In to excess.
On the morning ot the second day the father
became thoroughly alarmed and efforts ware
again made to break the spell, bet they, Ilk*
those of the morning before, ware uniuccMt-
ful. From tbat time forward until about th*
middle of October, with the exception of a
few hours of semi-wakefulness, the girl continued to slumber as naturally as any child
over fatigued from a day of exercise. On
the 14th day of October, eight month* and a
half having elapsed since the beginning ot
her unnatural sleep, sho awoke and called
her sisters to help dross her, remarking, "1
expect Gretchen will ba here now befor* I
finish my breakfast.'' Sbe at* heartily, but
could not be Induced to believe that tt was
October and that little Gretchen, her playmate, had been dead several months.
The sisters of the Uttle sleeper remembered
that Uttlo Gretchen had called on the first
day of tho child's sleep "Just because sbe bad
promised hor that she would when tbey parted
tho night before." The fact that tbe child
did not mention the prospective call from ber
littlo friend during her moments of seeming
wakefulness In April nnd July gavo tLo attending physicians ample room to question
whether she had really been awake during
those semi-lucid Intervals Within a few
days she was as bright and as playful as ever,
seemingly none the worse off for ber eight
and a half months of torpidity. On Hv* different occasions, twice In April and three
times In July, wben she could break the
lethargy for a few moments, sh* seemed as
bright end happy as though In her normal
condition; would Insist on helping sweep or
wash dishes, but always feU asleep befor* tbe
(ask was completed. Tho fact that the never
mentioned tbe names of any of ber playmates
during these spells of seml-wakefidaej*, argues
against hor really being awake until tha October morning wben she announced tb* pro*
pectlvo call from ber little friend who had
died in May.
SROUOHT ON BY SDNSTBOKX.
iu 1874, whUe Nathan 0. Vrocmau, of
Schenectady, N. Y., was at work tn th* harvest field, he received a severe sunstroke, but
quickly recovered and waa loan able to tak*

Pittsburg, June 12.— To-day th,.- following order was received from Coirjtnissnrv
General Spangler, at Johnstown: "Please
ship at once l.lKIll pounds of fresh bread,
2,OUO pounds lo be shipped each day for
five days; 8,000 pounds of quart cans of
tomatoes, 4,000 quart eans of corn, 10
barrels of vinegar, ZOO boxes of pepper.
60 bushels of onions, 100 pounds cheese.
The emergency is very great and unless
shipments begin to-dny there will be a
famine in the entire valley." Orders wen-
placed within a few minutes for the entire amount of the requisition amounting
to about .t8,000, and the lirsl shipment was mnde Ihis afternoon. Iu this
eonneetien Mr. Reuben Miller remarked
that sueb orders as this one, furnished I j
the best refutation needed, of reports i .^
current that there is a superabundance
of supplies at Johnstown, and every reii-! ji <-, i.
son wby contributions should be con* iriderton v indni
tinued right along for the present. After j \y , • pi,jn„„
to-day railroads leading to Johnstown vi'iiceulf
will be relieved ofthe embargo placed
upon them by the general relief committee. People can go and come at pleasure
without first securing a special order and
the handful of passes that have been
necessary. Contributions to the relief fund
continue to come with encouraging
regularity, but the amounts are growing
smaller. pear is expressed that (lie
governor in undertaking the charge of
distribution of the fund will tend to interfere with subscriptions. Up to tonight the amount received hv the treasurer was $505,(150. Tbe work of paving
workmen wan completed at 2 p.' m.
About $110,000 was distributed among
them; nearly all of the men were provided with transportation lo Ihis city.
Johnstown, June 12.—Chns. II. Meyers,
who has kept a list of bodies brought to
all thc morgues says up to noon 1426
bodies had been taken out of the ruins.
He estimates the entire loss of life al
3000. Tbe eight hundred |pec*il policemen employed hy rlie (Vanity Sheriff
Were discharged to-day and tho soldiers
of the Fourteenth Regitnonl put in their
places. Owing to the conflict of orders
heretofore existing hei ween ihe Sheriff
nnd Genera) Hastings, the change is
very gratifying, A public meeting has
heen called for this afternoon. The
ostensible reason given for calling it is
lo devise means by which Iho eifv can
be protected against floods In future. It
is stated, however, thai a number of citizens have prepared nod will present resolutions condemning the Southfork Fishing Club in unmeasured terras,
effort will be made to hnvo them
pressed.

Kunui! Coi kiek-.—Under the heading,
"Chinese Assault Cases," the Free Press
lot this evening states: "In ths Police
Court o few days ago two eases came up
hefore the Magistrates in which white
men were charged with assaulting Chinamen. The Magistrates, however, after
hearing both sides dismissed the eases
ivith costs."
The concluding part of the above is
untrue—as the defendants not only paid
Ihe Court costs hnl Ihe eonnsel fees of
the prosecution as well -the prosecution
consenting lo this—and the cases so
ended. Tbitii.
12th June. 1880.
l'nlT',11 CoL'BISBl—It is to be hoped
that '■ Pi ogress" is not dead, but has survived " being tickled." There is nothing
iu your leader lo be tickled at. The
writer was a member of an Ambulance
Class in England. If " Progress "thinks
the St. John Ambulance Association
makes any pretension to instruct doctois
lie must know very little about the association. Surely he has nol read your
leader himself, but must have heard
what Mr. So and So said about it. The
Si. John Ambulance Association, as you
say in your leader, is to diffuse a knowledge of the means by which first uid (put
that in big letters, Mr. Editor, for the
benefit of -'Progress"; is to afford the
sick and wounded, or to put it in other
words, lo tell us what to do till the doctoi
comes. • Progress " speaks very lightly
of the ''matrons." He would have some
difficulty in mentioning a position in life
that has nol been well filled by a "matron." Not a few have risen high in the
medical profession, and has not the
doctor very often to depend on good nursing for his success? If "Progress"
could induce one of our medical gentlemen to give an hour, or an hour and a
half, once a week to an Ambulance
Class then he might, without fear of contradiction, sign himself Progress.  Con.
Whilst heartily agreeing with "Con"
in the tenor of liis letter, we would just
like to remark that for our own part we
had been innocent enough to believe that
the letter "Progress" sent us was nol
intended to be taken seriously, subtlO
irony lieing evident throughout. Both
ourselves and the public it seemed to us
were very unmercifully "chaffed" by
"Progress." However, "Con" takes
him an isrieux, and of course he may bo
right in bis view. As for the implied
slur, which he believes to be thrown
upon "matrons," our own opinion is that
"Progress" must have meant "matrons" as applied to "mothers," and not
OS "Con" supposes the word to apply,
viz.. to hospital matrons.—En.

THE CRONIN CASE.
This celebrated case upon which the
eurtainhasjust descended im- a moment,
pending further promised revelations, |
has perhaps created a more widespread!
interest than any other cetise eelsbre
which the present generation has witnessed. The dark secrets which thc
police investigations have broughl to
light, exceed in the intensity of their
dramatic interest, anything ever printed
in the dime novels which supply literary
fodder to so many, in the shape of careers
oi noted detectives, or the plots batched
and unearthed by novelists of the Stamp
of F.MIl.K OaBOBIBAV, The public of
Ureal. Britain has, if possible, taken a
keener interest in the unravelling of this
Ckonix mystery than has the people of
this Continent, owing to the undoubted
connection of many noted Irishmen with
the secret society of the
Brotherhood,"    alias   "Clan
COURIER i""' >t;lteof Minnesota.   The document
  issigned by the Governor, Lieutenant-
Governor,  Secretary of  State.  Auditor,
Attorney-General, the complete  Senate
'47 . and 19] of the 10;: members of the
House of Representatives.   Tlie memorial   sets   forth   that    the   undersigned
American citizens have no desire to oh-1
trude their opinions  concerning tbe do-;
inestic affairs of another people, but feel
that recent events have  lifted the great
struggle in which   Mr. Gladstone is thei
leader above the lines of mere national
polities.    They look to the success of his
policy as a great step  towards the final
settlement of the so-called Irish question
on an enduring basis of  justice.   The
great contest  wns   now approaching   a |
crisis, and  before  he  was embarrassed
by the responsibilities of power they de- i
nire lo tender lo him their assurance of I
good  will   an.l   hearty  sympntby,   and
through Mm to offer like assurances to
all of the friends of rational liberty in the
three kingdoms, who had for so long o
lime and under such discouragement
given him their loyal and steadfast support.    A similar memorial, signed by the
Governor, Lieutenant-Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney-General, state j
Treasurer, Supreme Court complete (five j

t
'not down-trodden," Ac, as being exempt from this special kind of danger—
the danger arising from the existence of
powerful secret organizations, than which
nothing is more subversive of the
stability of the State. Of this, however,
we feel assured, that the warning will not
be thrown away upon our neighbours;
more especially when vV8 see the far-
reaching ramifications o! the clan-na-
Qael society, as shown in the fact that
Mr. T.OAS, the U.S. Minister to Chili,
appears to he mixed up in its operations
in a way which he may find il difficult to
explain to President Harrison, before
whom he has been summoned lo appear
Ot Washington in order to exculpate himself from the charges
made, Many a startling revelation as to the secret machinations
and methods employed by the "Society
of Jesus" lias been made both in past
and present times—nor looking al the
danger which might possibly arise from
such secret organizations us this " chut-

neither life or property when the interests of such society arc at stake, tend to

ANOTHER PETTY WAR.
There is much probability oi Great
Britain being once more drawn into a
petty war, the worst feature of which is
perhaps, that it is a war that might
easily — tinder favorable conditions —
spread over a very wide area. This lime
the casus belli has arisen in Thibet, the
home of the Grand Llama to whose care
the famous tooth of Buddha is entrusted.
The reason for anxiety lies, not in Ihe
fact that Thibet is in itself a mountainous
region, infested by marauding hill tribes,
but rather in its propinquity to the con-
lines of the Chinese Empire, and the
acknowledged suzerainty of the Celestial
Emperor over it. When wo remember
what happened to the French in Tonquin,
we cannot do otherwise Ihau tremble lo
think what might become Of mir troops
when on the far side nf the vast mountain chain that divides lirilisb India
from Thibet, line thing at any rate a
war will do. It will increase our knowledge of what i-i nt present almost an unknown laud. \ few hardy travellers
have made their way through I" China,
by way of Lhassa, the capital, hut tbey
have told us hut little ofthe manners and
customs of tbe natives, or the flora and

state of things is tolerated, WC may be
assured that then- is much of iiilejresf to

delicate nature, as nothing is so sensitive
or more subject to "scares" than capital.
Mr. Chamberlain has been thought by
some, the man to introduce a measure
having that end in view, though for ourselves we fail to see the fitness of the
eloquent member for llirmingham for
the task, when we recollect that when
we were ourselves at school, he or at any
rate his firm, practically held a monopoly of the "nut and screw" business
throughout Great Britain,
From English papers we learn that
great interesl was excited at Marlborough Street Police Court recently, by
the hearing of the case I'ochcforl r.
I'ilotell. Our readers will doubtless remember to have seen the details of the
alleged assault in our telegraphic news of
over three weeks ago, Rochefort, the
famous French Radical and journalist,
(lit Lanterne) was walking down Regent
street (London) when M. I'ilotell, a well-
known artist, went up to and struck him,
whereupon Rochefort drew a pistol ease
from his pocket and struck his assailant
with it, kicking him as he fell to the
ground. I'ilotell ran away to fetch the
police, lie I'iliitelli complained that
defamatory articles had been published
concerning him In In Lanterne and it was
for thiB he struck Rochefort. Mr. Han-
nay (the presiding magistrate) caused
Rochefort to find two sureties In Jt50
each, to keep the peace for six months;
"the evidence clearly showing that he
had no intention oi firing ihe revolver,
and that he merely gave a blow with thc
case it was in."
Our readers may remember that Henri
Rochefort was condemned after the fall
of the Paris Commune in 1871 to transportation to New Caledonia, the French
penal settlement in tlie South Pacific,
and was whence he escaped and returning
to France was ultimately pardoned.

ls it not an odd feature in tin 'Home

conviction in the matter, or is it thai
considerable portion of their readers eon

it may be that the large majority of the

life to tho alleviation of the Bufferings of the
Koldiers in tho hospital ■».
Later on and near ing the end of the siege a
ball was announced to tako place In one of
the houses on Walton street. Miss Moore
bead, who never went to a place of amusement, was urged by a captain whom she had
met In the hospital to go to the ball. Tlie
ladies of her acquaintance also Joined iu and
urged her to fake this recreation. Sho finally
consented. When tbe captain called for her
he found her in a full bridal costume, with
valuable aud brilliant jewelry. It was the
first time she hau ever so appeared. At the
ball she was one of the gayest, and seemed
so unlike the sad hospital visitant that it at-
tracted general remark. At 3 iu tho morn
iug the ball ended aud the guests scattered
for their homes.
Wheu Miss Moorehead failed to arise by 8
a. ax, is did not surprise tbo lady with whom
she boarded, but when 10 o'clock came with
no sigu of her the door was opened. There
Miss Moorehead was found fully dressed as
she lay across the bed, her faco toward tlm
wall.
STABBED TO THK  UKAUT.
A call did not arouse ber, and a touch told
that she was dead. Two stabs hnd pierced
her heart, and were so closely made as
scarcely to make a crease in her dress. Tho
sensation which followed was intense. Her
fidelity to the wounded soldiers mado every
one of them feel that she was a sister. The
fears of the ladies were aroused ot the mysterious assassination.
Who could havo been ber murderer, and
what was his motive? The captain who had
been her escort the night before had left ber
safely at home, and no one thought of 5US*
peoting him at the time. The chamber window opened upon the garden, footsteps lead*
iug up thereto showed tbat it was through
this window that theinnrderer madebiaway.
| Tha fact that not a jewel had been misplaced
showed that it could not have been a robber
who had done tho deed. Thero were those
who invented all manner of theories. The
one most generally accepted was that some
one, struck by her beauty whilo at tho ball,
had entered tha chamber in tho maimer described with Improper motive, and, finding
himself repulsed, quickly dispatched ber.
Others believed tbat tbo captain, who had
urged her to marry bim, and finding her oh
durate, had committed tlio deed to prevent
her from falling Into other hands. While
tbe sensation among tin- beleaguered people
was at its height .Sherman's forces entered
tho city, scattered tiie people and prevented
investigation; but when tho people a year
later returned to their homes the talk of tho
tragedy was renewed. The captain bad been
killed meantime in the battle of Joncsboro,
and the tragedy passed into memory, and to
this day is frequently spoken of.—Atlanta

The vessel is thereafter exposed to a gentle

that these layers, having becomo saturated

of carbon. It is iu this way that banded
agate is converted into the onyx, with its
black and white layers, used in the production of cameos and intaglios.
Exposure to strong sunlight was long ago
found to give a reddish tint to gray colored
agates, and this suggested tho burning of
such stones so as to convert them into cornelians. At Oberstein, likely stones for this

Tbo real problem lies iu spanning the tremendous distance that lies between tho north

THB PROPOBBD ROtJTK
From New Vork to a littlo beyond the
northwestern boundary of tho United States
continuous rail communication is already
open by way of the Canadian Pacific railway
which will soon be- supplemented by tho com
pk-tion of a connection between ttoKortbem
Pacific and tho British American line.
Europe, from the Atlantic ocean to the
Ural mountains, which sopnrnto it from AsLi,
Is now crossed by tho locomotive, its eastern
border being reached by two great Russian
. railways, one terminating nt Orenburg an.l
tho other ut Ekaterinburg, which last lies
nearly due cast from Moscow and southeast
from St. Petersburg. Tho vast Russian cm
piro in Asia, stretching from tho Ural mountains to tho North Pacific, and far up almost
to tho Arctic circle at Behring straits, a
distauco of thousands of miles, has not as
yet one solitary line of railway, tt Is across
this prodigious stretch of country, much of it
well peopled, but much, also, an unknown
wilderness, locked a large part of tho year in
the embrace of tho Arctic winter, that the
t rans-Asiatic lino must penetrate.
Dutn great step in thlsdireotion has already
been taken. Tho Russian government feels
tho necessity of railway communication
across its Asiatic empire, and tho czar bus
sanctioned a project for tlie gradual construe
tion of a railway from the Ural mountains
to tho waters of tho Pacific at Vladivostock,
the extreme .southeastern point of the Rus
siau empire, lying about latitude 43, directly
opposite the northern, most of tho chief
\ islands in Japan. When that great work is
accomplished, central Asia will bo brought
into much nearer connection with America
than now, as Vladivostock lies almost duo
west from Portland) Ore., ond tho distauco
between the two continents is much less than
it is farther south.
But this will not do for our all rail route,
which must be mado by a lino branching off
I from tho great Russian  Pacific railway at
i some point perhaps a thousand miles west of
| Vladivostock,   and    running    northeasterly
through Siberia to Behring straits.
The crossing uf tho Behring straits is declared by some experienced travelers to bo
■ entirely practicable. In tho narrowest place
i they aro said to bo only ten miles wide, and
while for n part of the year boats can easily
i cross, it i.i asserted that tbo straits aro dotted
, with islands, by mean-- of which, and Inter-
, veiling bridge--, a continuous pn**sago could
bo effected.
Alaska does uot, it must bo admitted, offer
a very encouraging field for railway building, so far as either climate, topographical
; features or productions nro concerned, but
'■ it interposes uo obstacles which money and
skill could not overcome.
THE DISTANCES.
The distances over which the railway would
havo to bo built to carry out this great scheme
nro, iu round numbers, about ns follows:
Miles.
United States boundary to Behring straits... 2,000
, Dahrin;,' straits to junction with Russian
;    Pacific railway 2,000
Junction to European line at Ekaterinburg  3,500
a*otal yet to be constructed   7,500
This looks like a tremendous length of lino
' to build, and yet about au equal amount of
I railway mileage, was probably built in tho
j year 1888 fn tho United States nlone, aud in
I ono recent year almost double that mileage
wos constructed.
Sorao of tho distances by our great railway
and its connections would be about ns fol-
i lows:

from  Victoria, 11. C. to Alaska, render-1
ing travel to the Arctic possible, is being
seriously talked of.   Tlie engineers pronounce the scbenie feasible, and estimate !
to cost at 1180,000,000.   This idea, ii car- j
lied out, would be a great step in tbe de-1
velopnient  of  Alaskan   resources,  and 1
would help the  United States to a con-!
siderable revenue on the I'.onn.nno which I
