A cuuous pamphlet on  the subject  "of, ���������'Retrogression' of Memory,       or  Thinking Uackwai'ds,"  has been published by  the Colonial  Rochas, a former  director of tlie Polytechnic (the  French  Woolwich),  who  is endeavor-  - ihg to prove the truth of the theory  of reincarnation.  He  has  hypnotized a number      of  persons and made thorn believe they  were ten, thirty and even   thirty-five  years younger than their actual ages  Some experiments were made with  a woman of. thirty-five who was hypnotized, and to whom it was suggest  ed that |her age was gradually 'diminishing.    While  in  the hypnotic  stage  she described incidents in her life that  occurred   when she  was twenty.-She  told of her confirmation at the    age  of 14, and 'described .her theft of  M"ANAIM0.       ;  (From the Herald; )  At the Departure Day  mine    last  in .lit. a serious accident occurred   to  Mr.   James  Bell,  of Njcolistreett  by  which ^oth bones of .his leg were bro-  t'.i  below the knee-'"Mr.''Bell     had  charge .of the endless rope at' the low-  er end' down the mine, and  was   engaged in-the rather dangerous .qccubp-  tion    of rid.jig the rope; and'hooking  the     cars on with a clutch 'arrangement tJiey have for, that purpose.

M. Menshikoff says  the revolutionaries like -the French convention   openly send emissaries and do not conceal their intention.   They act in the  full light of day, while the government     works in secret.   The government, it is true, has cannon, i*wt perhaps only for the present���������while they  are not necessary. -When Uicy      are  needed none can guarantee  that they  will not be in the possession of    the  revolutionists.   The present ��������� anarchy  and suspense are due -to  the inaction  of the government.   Witle, like Kuro-  patkiu, not only "permits the enemy  to  concentrate his forces,  but      to  make his  dispositions  and  to choose  the. moment for giving battle.   Such  tactics will do more within    Russia  than they did in Manchuria,   f he balance sheet of the government for the  first eignt months'of the current.year  makes a fairly favorable showing.
