The attention of the treasury department was particularly directed to this new danger of employing modern methods in smuggling by the accidental capture i}f an airplane N thut came across the Canadian border into north- em New- Yo'rk with several cases of. contraband liquor. It was entirely owing to an accident, however, that this cvpture was made, and the oltt- cials of the government have no doubt that large quantities . of contraband liquor .have reached this country al- .ready over tli.e same air route: Planes to Patro 1 ! Air. There is reason to believe that some venturesome pioneers of this ne\v mode of smuggling through the air have al- readjr lauded several thousands! of dollars' worth of semiprecious stones from the topaz mines in Mexico, somewhere in the interior of tlie United States. . At any rate, the. meua.ce to the national revenues has. become so immediate that Secretary Glass has decided that he will ask congress for transfer of COO .airplanes and hydro-airplanes from, the army and navy to his department, and funds enough to create an' effective 'air patrol. . -.'

Young Artist Who Offer.G; Sijlf for Experiment Is Later Relieved of : Transferred Malady by.,Nieans ' of Hypnotism.. .'• - Pnri?.—A strange cure.'of a psychic nnture, has. just bWu achieved• betoro a mmi,l;er of doctors :md a few experl- .nienters along the lines of. psychiatry. -The pntlenf'-wns a-young womim of hysterical 'tendency, who for seven years had been possessed with an.'nnti- roligious nmnJft. Duriny this time^the sight of c priest, tlie rfct of pussins near a church, the prouunciution of a religious ,'.formiiln 'all have brought cm either atfnci:s of violence or spells' of dumbness, ..

At thesej sugge'stions she \Anilil tremble und 'ruint. To nourish a patient under, these c'onditions daily became more and more oC a problem. Takes Extreme Measures: Tn Paris last autumu 'the doctors whom her husband oonsultfld advised him to incarcerate her. Deciding to. try everything else before resorting to this extreme measure, her husband, on the advce of an eminent chemist, llmii- ly put her under the^ treatm«it of a wellfknown specialist in psycotherapy, M. Miuigln. • Six months of treatment, consisting • in psychic, re-eductUion, either in a state of waking or by superficial hj'pnosis, gave only results of short duration. Tlie Easter festivities exasperated the the point of 1 frenzy. This decided Mr. lUfmgin to go to extreTae measures. He began a tireless search, for a subject..suitable; for the experiiueht of a .transference' of the maladyl with oil-its anguish anil strange manifestations. This, wsjs a difficult task, for the subject must be of'such a delicate and perfect suggestibility as to be able later to,be freed in turn from these same miseries.' i Mine. Georgette .Abel, y charming young artist, offered herself for this delicate experiment, with ns -much charity as disinterestedness. On-being put to sleep the subject's, hanil" was i placed in. trte hand ; -.of the afilicted w"omau. In a few moments the subject underwent an indescribable-- transformation. She was seized with agonizing convulsions.. The patient, however, grasped- the hand of the doctor, declaring with emotion that she was "liberated." ' ', ' . . ' Malady !s Transferred. On the order, of M. Mnngin, the Int-. tor uttered a stream of words touching the church, words which for seven years she-had refused to utter under all kinds of compulsion. In the meanwhile, the young artist threw herself on the floor and attempted to beat her head against the wall, crying out in the eame manner in wh;ch the patient was Syont to do. Tlie latter,.passing from words to .acts, touched a holy medal, handled a crucifix and> niude u short prayer, all this quietly and. without^.any hesitation, while- the subject moaned and threw herself about more and more. : Being assured of the complete "liberation" of the former sufferer, M. Mangin let the subject sfeep while,he made suggestions of n soothing nature to her. .Then he awakened her. Both •women were in a perfectly tranquil state.'- Since this time the young wife goes every day to 'church. She. had a • long conversation • with a friend of the writer who says that not a trace of her former malady-was visible. , It is two weeks since the.cure was wrought and it has been perfectly maintained. As for. Mme. Abel, she is happier and healthier than ever. ; _'•' - M. Mangin does not pretend to know by what force he. has accomplished, this marvelous cure. He does not attempt to interpret the facts, he'only, inquires -into them carefully and. impartially, which .is a .great deal. ' ; .• ' Wounded.' . him'kinix o1' ; Ryrisi. Col. Bauer/and'Other.
