One of the most important of the ninny congrcs-cJ at Paris during tlio summer was thnt wliirh considered hypnotism. Any report from the learned body was BO long penciling this side of the water that Americans might have been justified in thinking the f;ravo professors hud put one another all to sleep and would remain in that state for an indefinite time. At last, however, an outline of the work done at the congress has come to hand. It shows admirably the exceeding clearness and carefulness in detail of these French scientific men. Hypnotism is well known in this country under its other name of mesmerism, or animal magnetism. Professors (so called) of the art hypnotize subjects on a public stage, and f orco them to do absurd and extravagant things for the. amusement of the audience. Such exhibitions as these the French medical pro- fessora condemn in strong terms. They «ay that after a subject is once hypnotized changes are produced in his nervous system which make him afterwards always easily susceptible to the mes- ., •merizer's influence, even though distant from him. Moreover, when the subject is in the trance or somnambulic state, the operator may throw into his brain a certain idea, and will it to remain there after the spell is broken. Ideas implanted in one brain by the will of another in this manner are kno%vn as "suggestions, 11 and the means by which they are implanted are known as the method of suggestion. Weak minded and hysterical "• persons may thus be ledTsirtcrcomuiitr atrocious crimes "by suggestion." Such considerations induced the congress to pass the following resolution: 1. That all public exhibitions of magnetism and hypnotism ought to bo prohibited by thw authorities In tho Interest of public health and morals. 2. That tho exercise of hypnotism aa a curative Agent ought to be regulated by the laws, governing the practice of medicine. Also the convention passed ft rttriolu- iioii profoundly interesting to medlcul men the worVI over.—It waa ~ that hereafter the study of hypnotism and its applications should bo introduced into the teachings of medical science. It must be remembered that in this body were some of the most accomplished and .scientific' members of the medical profession in the •world. It is a hundred and five years ago since a committee of tho French Academy reported that tho science of Anton -Mesmer was a delusion and he himself was a quack. Now his science is recommended by men still more learned to the careful study of medical men throughout the! world. Mcsmer has heen revenged. Reports were made on the employment of hypnotism for the insane, for nervous patients and for vicious children. The treatment consists in getting the patient under control, as the mesmerist does, and then throwing a healthy suggestion into his mind in place of tho diseased one. The method worked well in nervous diseases and could bo utilized for performing painless surgical operations. .It was not BO successful with the insane, owing to tho difficulty of fixing their attention. But tho most signal success •was obtained in tho reforming of ,vicious children. Several of the learned physicians were of opinion that hypnotism would be of groat use to educators, though only to be employed when every- thing else failed._._. For the past week we have bcr-n Irasj opening and Arranging "~\ TL THAT is meant by ' free alkali," Doctor? I see it mentioned Y V in the advertisements of IVORY SOAP." o '"Free Alkali,' Madam, is the alkali which is not combined with the fats or oils of which the soap is made, due to the ignorance or carelessness of the soap maker. Soaps in which ' free alkali' is present are decidedly injurious to both the clothing and the skin when habitually used. I have seen reports of analysis made of the IVORY SOAP by men eminent in our profession, and all pronounce it to contain no 'free alkali,' to be made with great care and of materials of the best quality, carefully selected, so I unhesitatingly recommend it for every purpose about the house for which good soap is required," ( ( A WO&D OF WARNING. There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory'•," they ARE NOT. but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of the genuine.

Great Bams and k faied tint we —A conspiracy baa been detected among the prisoners confined in the county jail to make way with the sheriff and prosecuting attorney. There were live or six of the. more desperate characters in the plot. The motive for such a diabolical schcme"iu fouuti iu the i'ncl that those two parties were the moat active-agents in running down several prisoners. It is safe to say that the plot will be a boomerang and instead of being victims, State's Attorney Stager will have the parties indicted and convicted for conspiracy to commit murder and Sheriff Keefer will act as their escort to Joliet. It was due to the vigilance of Mr. Keefer that a letter waa intercepted which disclosed the plans of the conspirators. —[Fulton Star. State's Attorney Stager was seen by a reporter, and corroborated .the statements given above. Two other letters, written in the jail, to friends outside asking that they procure aid for their escape, are also in Mr. Stager's possession. The parties are on the sure road to Joliet.

DUNCAN CLARK'S A model pleasure yacht has hecn con- Btructed to run by electricity, iu this country. Tho experiment haabeon a success. The motive power h generated from 200 Fauro accumulators, by tho storage battery system. Tho little boat runs noiseles-sly, ulid with speed enough for a pleasure boat. SufHcient material can be stored in a small boat to generate, electricity for four or live hours. There is no smoke niul no annoyance from machinery or puffing steam. The stored batteries occupy far leas room than coal, water and machinery do. These email electric boats have been run successfully for some time on the Thames, in England, but they have not yet been tried to any great extent in America. The Nebraska Stale Journal scouts the idea that western farm mortgafjes and western securities in general are of doubtful value. The editor declares that investments iu farm mortgages and in the bonds of growing western cities offer aa good securities as can be found anywhere, even in Massachusetts. This is especially true of Nebraska, it is said. So rapid is the rise of real estate there, The Journal declares, that a loan made today upon a farm mortgage for five years, at the end of that time will probably be doubled in value, as far as security goes. In Tho Atlantic Monthly E. Q. Scott takes tho ground that in Canada the French will finally overthrow tho Eng- iiab by sheer natural increase in numbers. If they should, it will be contrary to the previous history of the two races anywhere else. Today in Europe, in their original homes, the English are increasing in numbers much more rapidly than the French.
