Decidedly it somethiug more than more embarrassment that caused his nmvilliuguess. "I have given it up, ladies," said he. "1 have nothing more to do with magnetism. ' ' "But why, why, doctor?" the pretty pleaders persisted. "Pat us to sleep — one of us — you must, or tell tis the reason why." "Well, so bo it," said he at last, still visibly reluctant. "I will toll yon why. It may teach you n lesson. "Eighteen months ago," he began, "I went into the country to see a friend. We will call him Paul, if yon please. Though old comrades and devoted 'chums,' for a long time the chances of life had separated us, particularly his marriage, which, for certain reasons, had obliged him to locate for awhile upon one of his properties, situated, ns I have said, in the depths of the country. But often and often my thoughts carried. me — a trifle enviously in the midst of my hard work — toward that forgotten corner where his hours were passed in the quiet routine and bliss of a domestic life. "Nor was I mistaken iu tho picture my fancy had drawn. Peace, serenity, repose, breathed from the very trees, with their great moss covered trunks, against which an old chateau leaned in the mingled shade and shine of the sunny Provence woods. "Paul met me at the station. His .wife I did not see till later — just before dinner indeed — a beautiful woman, with dark, brilliant eyes, which flashed when not shielded by the long, curling lashes, with the light of burnished steel. She had a superb figure and a complexion the tint and texture of old ivory, through which was flowing vigorously the rich red current of a healthy blood. Very, very beautiful she was; but, oddly enough, as I looked at her I felt a sense of a deception somewhere under that fair exterior. "Was it fancy? Or was this full, robust beauty but similar to a too fervid summer that forces the sap to rise so fast that the fruit turns sour? I do not know, only that this woman entered with difficulty into the'idyll'hud evoked from the shadowy aisles of these old woods, that seemed always whispering and murmuring to themselves. "Her intense vitality seemed to shatter this setting of peace and serenity. Moreover, wo were not alone; another guest had arrived — a young man and a close neighbor. From the moment of his coming too — or did I fancy that also? — Paul, my friend, seemed less genial. The first joy in his eyes at my arrival had calmed ; I saw him now in his habitual state, doubtless, a little aged, slightly constrained, with that vague, nervous reserve pf the distrustful husband who in his Inmost thoughts suspects treachery. ."I had no. time, however, to ponder long on these reflections. Old memories, serious and gay, crowded' thick and fast upon us in the ease and comfort of that well ordered dining room,' looking out upon the lawn, the. soft melancholy of the coming twilight slowly enwrapping us and carrying hearts and minds both far back into the past. "Dinner was nearly over when a chance word or' question turned the conversation upon a siabject no less absorbing then than now, ladies" — and the doctor bowed courteously to the circle of eager listeners closely clustered about him — "turned, I say, upon the subject of hypnotism and hypnotic suggestion, "My friend, from the first discoveries, had watched the advance of these studies with the liveliest interest, and many and frequent bad been the discussions between himself and his wife concerning them, she denying the phenomena arising from these experiments and. stubbornly pronouncing them humbug and charlatanism, and he affirming that Strange things could and did happen, as he knew from his own experience— a. certain evening in Paris, when he had offered himself as a 'subject' as incredulous as she, and had been put to sleep promptly and made to accomplish in his sleep things of which they toW, him afterward. . . «««Bahl They duped you! 1 insisted hie, wife, 'Doctor, ' suddenly appealing tQ pe, 'help me to get this rubbish ont of his head or Paul will certainly go Sis plspes Ofer IliS fcrtffr fthefc Lte § in a flotmd hypnotic Sleep. 41 'Well, he is off,'said t *' 'Impossible! No!' "She bent over him, called him, pinched him—no movement. Raised his arm—it fell inert, like a log. " 'Qnk'k, quick! Suggest something 1' 3 id f?he, a strruijje eagerness showing Suddenly iu her face. "You v,-onld perhaps feel the proof stronger, ni.Tlnme, did you make the Suggestion yourself.' "She appeared to think, murmuring half aloud, 'It must be an unaccustomed act, something unusual, that he cannot divine, that does not enter into his habit of life.' "She looked about her. Near by on a table a magazine lay opened at a recent article on 'Hypnotic Suggestion,' a slender mother of pearl paper knife thrust between the folds. She turned the leaves hurriedly. " 'ArT-b, v,-o have it at last!' said she, putting her finger upon a certain paragraph. 'An experiment just made successfully, they say—at the hospital of La Salpetrifre. Repeat it with Paul, nud I shall he convinced.' "Tho experiment was to suggest to the patient at a fixed hour a predetermined net—the act in this case suicide— With some harmless object that tho 'subject' should be made to believe a poniard. " 'Willingly,' I responded. "Sho bi'.nded mo tho paper knife. 'This is harmless enough, isn't it?' she said, yielding it to mo with a charming smile. 'It would not hurt a fly.' " 'Perfectly harmless.' And I held up the little pearl dagger before Paul's eyes. " 'Do yon see it, Paul?' said I slowly and impressively, 'this poniard here? Well, I am going to put it on that table yonder. . Tomorrow, when the luncheon bell rings—tho luncheon bell, remember —you will come here, take this poniard and—kill yourself!' "Then I roused him. He remembered nothing and felt nothing, only a comic uneasiness concerning tho act that he was to accomplish and from which ho was determined to defend himself. "The evening 'finished gayly with a rubber of whist, ending at 10 in order to give tho handsome young neighbor— a silent listener to what had been going on—time enough to reach home at a reasonable hour. "Wo were walking, Paul, his wife, and I, on the terrace next morning when the luncheon bell rang. Paul raised his head, listened a second, turned brusquely and re-entered tho chateau. His wife had become very pale. " 'Come, quick,' said I. 'He has gouo for that paper knife!' "Sho remained motionless. " 'To what good?' she said. 'I see already that suggestion has reason in it, for Paul has gone. He will come back madder than ever, I suppose.' "I did not wait for her to finish. I hastened to tho drawing room, where my 'subject' had gone. "I ran. I threw open the door, and Paul was there—dead, face downward on the floor—a dagger in his heart!" "A real dagger, doctor?" cried the mistress of the house laying her hand softly upon the doctor's arm. "A real dagger, madame. I turned to the table—the little mother of pearl paper knife was gone. Who had taken it! Who had put the other—the real dagger —in its place? "God knows, but she, Paul's wife, and he, the neighbor who dined with us that night, were married ten months ago."—From the French For San Francisco Argonaut. o*4e§sttirtaf . No. No. No. N'o. Challenged In Court. What looked at the time like a close call for Ingersoll occurred six or seven years ago in New York, when he and the gifted Daniel Dougherty were arrayed against each other in a divorce case before Judge Barrett. Dougherty was for the husband. He closed his case in this way: "Through all this dreadful case, this struggle for what sh'ouldbe to her many thousand times dearer than life, has a veil mantled that beautiful face? Has one tear rolled down those cheeks? Has there been a single blnsh on that face? Not a tear! Not a blush!" He shook his fist at Ingersoll as he said this. "Do : you state that as a fact?" asked the infidel. "Yes.". "Then I tell you it is untru% " "Consider yourself challenged," shouted the Philadelphia!!. • "Let us have no interruptions," said Judge 1 Barrett, showing great anxiety and displeasure, "Well, then, he must not look at me when he says untruths," said Ingersoll, shaking all over with rage. Sensation in the courtroom. Mr. Dougherty explained that he had challenged Ingersoll in a purely Pickwickian sense, and when the two lawyers left the room they shook hands,—New York Press, The ministerial eri»i<s in Chili threatens to involve the resignation of the preside.-it.
