Tlien tliei-e are curious examples of temporary loss of nu'ir.ory owiiLi; to fatigue. Sir Henry Holland whua dnwn a mine Jn l5ic Har/ ni'oun.taiiw and sufferint; •from fatigue completely forgot his German .'imd could not ; remember a word ot' I'!: ivntiil he had rest and refreshment after ascending 1 : T\'e;ill e.vperionce this In a less degree. Sometimes It Is an injury which anises the blank iu Hie backward frnxe. An English professor once received a violent (blow on tlw head and at ouce,,.forgot all his Greek and a muiSrciuu lost all memory of music from the same • cause. Mr. 1 AVhym-por in his book oil the Alps, tells how he foil over a frightful precipice! 200 feot.Uis-h, with the result that ihis piist was for a time wholly blotted out of bis memory. ; The mort singular cases of memory loss are in connection with language: It is (julrc common in our liosplta^ to see a sick German unable to speak a word of English he. had thoroughly mastered. . . •.. ! A olergymnn. some .time ago lost -all- recollection of words, b.ut he could still remember the letters, of which they were composed and could express his Ideas freely by 'Spelling- the- words. 'An officer suffered from .a slight attack of apoplexy nnd asift result forgot all but a few words. When he tried to speak be merely muttered,' but it n book or manuscript were handed to him tie read It with perfect propriety. .One of the most extraordinary of all nicmory losses .is when a person forgets how to write wiith his right hand,- -but still lias tho power to do so with his left hand. Iu such a case after lie has- written with Ills left hand the' desired sentence lie can copy It with lib 'right hand. When the memory of words Is gradually lost it Iinvarla-bly progresses I-n one particular order. First the • proper names go, then the common nouns, then adjectives, and this 'stage Is followed by failure of tlie power to rocol lect events. Very many people suffe from the first degree; excessive smok ere, it is said, sometimes 1 find Jt difflcul to recall proper names. Drunkenness Is a well-known cause and there is th very curious case of a-rnan wlio mislaid a package when drunk, forgot where he had put It when sober and had to ge The Ghastly Sight Reported to Police by a Woman.

Leecly AWnks her husband's death was due mainly to heart failure, but (lie symptoms shown during his illness wore IJjose of morphine poisoning. Another "thing that conflruis the theory that death was due to morphine Is the faet that the box from which the morphine capsule was taken was found empty In the'mowing. The deceased was a nursery agent, in- fairly comfortable circumstances. He leaves a wife and two children to survive him, one-of -whom is employed in the office of Architect Grain.

Jowa Kails, Iowa, July 27.—Jlev. G. E. Scott, of Waterloo, was the guiding star of- a similar flock in this city for live years, and was not unknown as a sensationalist before he desecrated the cloth arid his pulpit or even before, he preached the sensational "bloomer" sermon last spring and which attracted such wide attention and newspaper comment. Scott always carried a chip on lite shoulder and seemed to delight when a full-fledged "scrap" was on. Aside from local set-tos with different parties here, lie atlaJned not aa enviable notoriety duriiug an address at Ack- loy when he addressed a soldiers' reunion. In tlie course of -his remarks he sn'd that while not all Democrats vrere horse thi-eves. all horse thieves were Democrats, and the utterance was followed by a demonstration which resulted in the reverend gentleman requiring a body-guard to the train. Going from here to Clinton, he launched forth agauist iho supposed iniquities of fhat city and incurred the enmity of many both inside and outside of his church. After leaving there he contributed a sc.itbjjig article to one of the local papers,of this city and styled Clinton "a den of corruption and debauchery," and in return for this, Scott was the recipient of a loving cup from his church Inscribed with the words, "From the Den of Corruption and Debauchery." His recent escapade recalls to many here his circulation of aa obscene piece of poetry which many believed lo be the work of the reverend gentleman. Scott has evidently sought sensationalism and his last move evidently caps the cli/max towards* which he has bee-n gradually moving for years. LOVELAND-POTTS. yesterday at noon at the residence of the Rev. T, S. Freeman, Charles H. Loveland and Miss Mary Potts were united in marriage. The ceremony was witnessed by a few intimate friends of the.contracting parties. Mr. Loveland is an insurance agent at Wabash, and Miss Potts is a 'highly respected young lady of this'city. They will reside nt Wabash. DEATH OF HANNAH HELVIE. . Sirs. Hannah Helvie died at her residence Jn Anoka Sunday afternoon, at 4 o'clock after a continued Illness of several weeks.
