THE EVENING GAZETTE: SATURDAY, JANUARY, 7 1888. STUDY OF MESMERISM. VERY CUR1QU3 EXPERIMENTS MADE AT THE CAPITAL. Jotirtmll.t'« Kihlbltlou of Skill In Hjpnctlum—Snegented JliiTflmrj Committed by • "Simttlve"—Not So Sno- ecuiful with Another Subject. W. A. CrofTut has recently taken up the study of mesmerism, or hypnotism, as the scientists prefer to call It. Mr. Crolut has developed considerable skill in this direction, and the other night gave an exhibition at his house before a noteworthy audience. Among others present were Postmaster General Vilas and his family, Senator Ingalls, Senator Platt, of Connecticut; Gen. A. W. Greely and his wife, Admiral and Mrs. Russell, Mr. Coleman, the commissioner of agriculture; Col. Nicolay, marshal of the United States su- premo court; Gen. Bryant, assistant attorney general; Professor Thompson, of the geological survey, and a number of other scientific gentlemen and physician*. Before beginning hia experiments Mr. Croffnt explained that he had been very much Interested in reading, In Paris letters, of the experiments conducted by Drs. Charcot and. Luys in Europe. VICARIOUS CRIMINALITY. , Mr. Croffut remarked that the experimentation with dangerous drugs and / medicated compounds under scientific conditions would be postponed to another evening, but he would immediately make tests as to the vicarious commission of crime. After performing sortie minor experiments ond getting hia subjects Into a good condition, Mr. Croffut attempted the feat of compelling a fellow being to COM- mit a crime by the force of his own will, acting upon the will of that fellow being. One of the subjects, a young woman employed in the government printing office, Yfos told to go into the audience and pick the ladles'pockets. She manifested great horror of the act and refused, but by an Imperative command the mesmorizer Induced her to comply, and without much display of Ingenuity she got a phantom purse, not a real one, from Mrs. John 0. Fremont. The experiment was not satisfactory as to the practical employment of an agent. Another sensitive, a clerk In a department, was mesmerized, and Mr. Croffut explained to him that in a house of one of the neighbors, In an upper chamber, in a certain corner and a certain drawer In the dressing case was a pocketbook which contained $5,000. He described the situation of the house minutely, the way to go there, the arrangement of the dressing case and so on, repeating it over several times until the subject had the geography Impressed upon his mind. Then handing him two keys he said: "The larger key will open the front door of the house and the smaller key will open the drawer of the dressing case in which the pocketbook will be found." He told the young man that if he would steal that pocketbook he would give him the money. There was a good deal of discussion between the mesmerist and his ' subject concerning the liability of discovery and arrest, but when assured that there was not the slightest possibility of anybody Interfering with him, and that there were no dogs about the place, he consented to undertake the burglary. Four or live gentlemen in the room were asked to follow the subject on his trip. Due arrangements hod previously been made with a neighbor to place the pocketbook in the situation described. The young man ran out into the street, turned the corner, and when he came to the house described by Mr. Croffut recognized It at once by the description. He then began to show the greatest degree of agitation, looking nervously behind all the tree boxes and around the corners, and finally jumped -over the fence, saying to those who accompanied him as "pals"— of whoso presence ho Beemed only half conscious—that he did BO lest the gate should make a noise. NERVOUS AND CACTIOCS. When he reached the porch his nervousness seemed to increase, as well as his caution; but he unlocked and opened the door quietly, crept into the hallway. . looked 'round all the corners and Into all the rooms, found his way up stairs into the,apartment described, drew out the key, unlocked the drawer indicated and found the pocket book. He was starting away with it, when ono of those who oc companled him called his attention to the tact that he had left the drawer open, and that he had better restore things as he found them. He replied that that was n good idea, and dolnq so, put the key in his pocket. Iln then crept around the room, looking into other places, and when asked why he did so, replied that he was looking for something else he could Hteal. Ono of the pafty suggested to him tlmt it was a had place to steal anything; but , money, for jewelry could be traced while money could not. This seemed to strike him as sensible, and he remarked that the pocket book was full of bills, and ho | had better be satisfied with what he hodjgot. Then he crept down stnirs with great caution, shut and locked, the front door carefully after him, and reaching the street, started to run like a flightened deer. One of his attendants caught him by the arm and asked him where he ,wos going. Ho Bold he was going home^ but the attendant suggested he must return to-Mr. Croffut's house and give him his •hare "of the money. The mesmerized -• thlet stopped a moment and said: "Yes, it would be mean not to give him his share; ho put us on to the job; we will go back and deal square with him." He returned to Mr. Croffut's house, banded that gentleman the pocket book and counting out f 5,000 in imaginary money, divided it equally between the two. This experiment seemed to demonstrate that, proper conditions existing, crima may be committed second hand through me.smerlc influences. ' With another subject Mr. Croffut was not so successful. He convinced a young iron that his brother had been killed by in Indian, whom he was advised to murder in revenge, and was told that he could find him on the Capitol steps. The sensitive, though generally obedient under mesmeric influences, refused to believe each an absurd story, and after a long argument with Mr. Croffut, in which the subject showed as much shrewdness as the operator, declined to attempt the deed he was urged to commit.—Cor. New York Tribune. • It la remarked that Mussulman pilgrims returning to Constantinople from Mecca bring with them slaves of both sexes, procured by them at the request of friends. The ministry of police, notwithstanding the prohibition by the sultan, feigns ignorance and tolerates this Illicit truffle. By the aid of pilgrims the regular slave traders carry on their nefarious business, .It Is believed that this convenient pretext of pilgrimage to holy places la largely resorted to for the promotion of slave dealing purposes, with, practical liupunlty. Thia Is only another among the numberless signs of the anarchy which is rupyiy gaining ground in the country. In the interior there never have been suck a want of authority, such lawlessness and' ruch wretckudntaa among the poorer classes.

House it Is, just aa much a3 was the Acropolis or the Temple of Baalbec. Forty-Qve centuries have passed since the 100,000 men labored for 2n years to construct It. That is a seemingly remote period of time, for it was Qve centuries older when Christ was born than is now the Pantheon, the oldest well-preserved building of Rome built in the Brat 'century. It was an old, old, old building when the rhymtuically beau Iful temple of Diana at Ephesus was reared; m re than a thousand years old when the two, Hl- ratns furnished material to Solomon to build hia temple.. Yet long ago as is that period, it is not such great age, after all. An ordinary piece of gossip is repeated at Sterling by thrice as many mouths as would have been ne- ceasary to have told how .the Pyramid was built, father telling son and the son his son, etc., until the present time.

Carefully told, as it would have been, and as are all traditions pie, it might have come of peo- down to our day In tolerably correctly told ."shape. That may seem absurd at first glance; but Hall, the Arctic explorer, was taken by the ignorant Esquimaux to a spot visited three hundred years before by Frobisher and he was amazed at fbe accuracy of their account, he having Frobisher's own account with which to compare it. When the Jews came back from the Uabylonish captivity, they found their records destroyed and the books of the law gone. Their scribes and priests went to work, and beginning with creation brought their history down .to that date, a period some 2,700 years back. Josephus' An tiquitteapf the Jews abounds in traditions cherished by his people and told from, father to son, beginning at and running up to the time of the Saviour. Homer's grand epic, the Iliad, is but a story told all over Greece of a jbrave people living in a city that was destroyed by the admission of a great wooden horse, hundreds and hundreds of years before his day, and arranged by him into a poetic drama, the delight of scholars of every age since it was written. In all old countries, each locality abounds in traditions not found in histories. That the people Hying about; the Pyramid, the swarthy Arabs, Icannot tell the wonderful story is simply due ti the fact that they are not the people whose ancestors reared the structure. Damascus is nearly or ,qulte as old as the Pyramid and Damascus abounds In traditions running back as far as the time of its occupancy by its .present races. Youth regards a single generation as a long time; but age knows how true is the Psalmist's plaint that life is but a span. A well known old lady of our city said to us but yesterday: "My childhood seems to have scarcely passed from me; its very memory is fresh as of' latest occurrence." The history-student gives no heed to time. He now cons the pages of Moses where he tells of Edens" bowers; then skips a period of thirty-five centuries and. makes the delightful Herodotus bis companion. 'He follows Ciesar to Britain and then considers the Victorian reign twenty centuries after. Ephesus with its mouldering plinths, shafts and cornices he, in fancy peoples with living beings and revels in the loveliness of its architecture. He sees the Colliseum and bears the ringing cry ofHabet sound out from the hundred thousand spectators gathered on sOme Roman holiday. What is the Pyramid in age as compared with those colossal bones found beneath the shingle, scoria; and bould era of the drift period, by the side ot which are found also bones which formed the grandest of all temples, even' man, wild as be was in that far away age. It is a fact being recognized; that man is found on earth as far back as other mammals, and it may be- is far back as when giant reptiles swam, the ocean washed -earth. Cheops : the mighty builder of the Great Pyramid, impressed with the shortness of life, and Hading no response to his soul- burdened cry, "If man die shall he live again" laid stone on stone, pile on pile and said, as he did so, "man's stay is short, but I build for ' immortality." And it was in this monster structure, destined to survive yet ten thousand years, that the linen swathed body should eternally rest, and each short- lived generation should sound his praises. He sought that immortality found in the teachings of the radical Buchner, who says, "It is the deeds and thoughts we live, and that is the only immortality.'; Time IB short; but the eternal stars point to eons of time ao great that man's mind staggers im effort to seize their import. Stars look down upon him, whose rays would require an age an hundred times greater than that of the Pyramid to reach the retina of bin age. Limited to .so brief time, saddened in the thought that he la scarcely a man ere he is called to lay down his manhood at death's Cell coming, noting the brief space that marks the history period of his race, and tilled with the thought that hia life and light must not and should not pass out, be looks up from the grave to the stare, as Hugo beautif ullyexpressBsa the thought in bis Lea Miserables, and hope tells of aa existence in which all that has been from the beginning shall be revealed and where shall be seen temples and palaces older than Pyramid, older than the tower of Babel, elder than the Ark, older than Adam's tent in Eden's field*,' older than man, older than the angels, and where hia brief stay here Is indeed but a span in comparison with the endless ages that revolve while he walk* the elyulan (ielda, whose bount- eou* ewe«U shall repay Urn for all tiiM he haa known of care and Worth Knowing.
