am hereditary curse. AtHt-tics Rhowme the Drink Habit is -pransmltted From Father to Son. frmit the Philadelphia Judical Reporter. Tlie latest investigation of the subject of drunkenness ami its effect upon humanity j ~v i , n made by Dr. T. D. Crothers, the superintendent of Walnut I/vlge, Hartford, C'ouii. 11° ‘1 notes Dr. Russ as relating t , nt t i,e minors of Westphalia, who live front their wives, are generally intoxicate! when they come home on visits. Tit,, result is that a large proportion of the 'l.;i,irei, born of these families are idiots .„{ fecble-miuded. In the study of the ip. 'litv of inebriates many cases appear "li,the parents were greatly disturbed in jioalth and their social relations prior to t i,o birth of the child, which grew up and Ixvame an inebriate without any special exciting cause. Ina number of cases which he cites, Dr. Others has directly traced inebriety bark to the parents at a time prior to the ciiihl s birth. In one instance the father was i, s ea captain, a healthy, robust man, who never drank except on shore, and then in great moderation. His ship went to China and the South sea, and was away twelve or fourteen months at a time. He me Tried in middle life, and on returning from a long voyage would go to his country Mnnc and be intoxicated with his wife for a „.,vk or more on wines—then recover and start away again. His wife would drink with him and be partially iutoxicated. Several children were born, all of whom died in infancy except one boy, who grew „p and became aperiodic drinker, and came under Dr. Crothers’ care. He was a nervous, melancholy young man, who could not follow any steady work long, and ©very two or three months he would rush away to join the most dissolute compan ions, with whom he would re main, in a room, and for days drink to a condition of continuous stupor. Finally he would become exhausted and lie attacked with gastritis. Under the care of a physician he would quickly recover, and then he would go back to the shipping-house w here he was employed, and exhibit great energy and industry for a long time. His mind was unstable, and he was incredulous of all things outside of his business. If he became angry and excited he would stagger and talk like a man drunken, his face would prow red. the pupils of the eyes dilate, and the lids swell, and he would be more or less cupid for a long time. The approach of the drink paroxysm was marked by great business activity and anxiety to help some one. Then suddenly he would And an evil companion and go away and drink as before. His earl} r life, the doctor found, was un eventful. He was a good student, of quiet, retiring manners, and held up as a model for bis companions. When about 14 years of age he sunned from a low, nervous fever of several weeks’ duration. He lived in his uncle’s family, and had tho best society and the most temperate surroundings, when suddenly one day he disappeared. A week later he was found in a low den, where he had been intoxicated from tho time he came in. He gave no reason why he did this, and seemed indifferent to all counsel and advice. For a year after, he was temperate and exemplary in every respect. Then ho disappeared as before, and drank wine in a room to stupor for a week or more, then came back. Then from this time these drink paroxysms were noted hy the great secretiveness to go where he could not >,j found, and also by never drinking until V „ found such a place and an evil I'omy .moil to join him. He was 2d years of age when placed in Dr. Crothers’ charge, who finally, so far as appearances went, effected a cure. The young man inherited a large property, mar ried, and went to the West Indies. “In this case.” says Dr. Crothers, “a most strik ing similarity was apparent between the drink paroxysms of his parents, which were marked hy a continuous use of wine, to stupor, for days in a room alone. In his case, beginning at youth, it seemed to burst nut as an inherited impulse, using the same spirits and lasting about the same time. Why he should suddenly and without premonition go away and drink to excess m a peculiarly unusual wav for a bov, and ever after keep it up at intervals under the same circumstances, can only be answered from a study of heredity.” In another case the physician cites the father as a temperate man. The mother had drank beer at meals all her life. After her wedding, however, both were intoxi cated, and remained in that condition for a considerable period of that time. The first child was a little fretful creature, which cried night and day for tho first year. By accident whisky was found to produce the most perfect relief. From this time nothing but some form of spirits would allav the nervous irritation, and as he grew older he would cry for it and refused to be satisfied with any other fluid. At 10 years he drank beer regu larly every night, and at 15 he drank to great excess. In appearance he was feeble and imperfectly developed. His mind was uncertain and changeable. The taste and effects of spirits, gave him, ho said, the greatest pleasure. When he could not get spirits he was delirious, and after using one or two glasses he became stupid and aughed at everything until he fell asleep. l r e was placed in the care of a physician, win tried to withdraw the use of spirits by reducing it from day to day. After the spirits were withdrawn ho developed mania and de lusions of persecution during which he es caped from control and drank to stupor. The mania disappeared. Again the effort to break up the use of spirits was tried, but tbe mania returned more violent than ever, and tho spirits were resumed and continued tip to death, at 20 yearsof age. Three other children w ere born to this couple, who were temperate and of average strength and vigor. 1 lie parents never used any spirits after tho first year of marriage. A man was placed in his care who had occupied a very respectable position of bust, and who, with an insane indifference, bad drank to great excess, and forfeited all honor and respect. He was educated, and Wils il man of talent and great energy. He "ns temperate up to 40 years of age, when suddenly he drank to intoxication, and he Wus Sl ’ e|l on the streets shouting in a deliri ous way. In two or three days he became temperate, and seemed to have no regrets or sorrow for the past. He manifested no interest in the advice and counsel of his mentis and made no remarksof explanation, hew gave any reason for his conduct, bc'erai months later he drank as before, and returned to his work with the same co °l indifference as to his conduct and its consequences. He was forced to resign his Position as officer of a bank, and gradually l- iit down lower, until brought to Dr. brothers. He drank periodically, the free interval being from three to eighteen months, the drink paroxysm lasting from tmee to sjx days. During this paroxysm he ''- s mapiacal and reeled up and down the b'cct, or was seen in an open carriage, al 'l-Vs going where he was most prominent, ann making public speeches. Ho seemed possessed with delusions of power and grandeur, and placed himself in the most P‘eminent pluses, interpreting the at tention no received as evidence of his greatness. ' ln n he recovered he seemed to have a paralysis of all conception of the nature and raaraoter of his conduct. On all other ihi u was clear and intelligent, but on 1 j silent and reserved. He recovered j'"l to tho far West to live on a cattle ranch. Investigation of this man’s history re tbe fact that his father, who was a inpeniu,, healthy planter, married for the nst time at 40. Soon after ho drank to wit, excess, and was alter this a periodical Tn 7 until bis death, ten years Inter. nt ber was delirious during these anil spent, his time on the street 1 , ln prominent places preaching anil . ’ ?[’ ln g m a maudlin way.

Si anil would not listen to any counsel or toTite ho f bank to his injury. Referring Jb'acase Dr. Outliers says: “The ro . | table similarity of tho symptoms of Hu.;’ mid sou, coining on at the same time ot life and following periodically, noted bv delusions of power and grandeur and desire to appear prominent, and the loss of eon sciousness of Che past of its relation to the ) 1 esent in his own ease, seemed to indicate a direct, heredity from father to son. - ’ MATHIAS SPLITLOU. How a Full-Blooded Indian Became a Millionaire. A Neosho, Mo., letter to the Missouri Republican says: Occasionally the institu tion of a law suit, the construction of a rail road or the transfer of real estate brings be fore tho public men whose history would form an interesting romance; but few of this class have had a more varied and peou lar experience than that of Mathias Split log, the millionaire Indian,” whose recent sale of seventy acres of land for *sts,oUo in Kansas, near Kansas City', caused so much comment in the local papers, Mr. Splitlog is a full-blooded Wyandotte Indian, and was born in an Indian village in Canada, and shortly afterward moved to Ohio. While a boy he was apprentioted to a carpenter and millwright, and, although his wages were only $7 per month, young Splitlog thought he was getting rich. He imbibed a love for machinery and inventions, which has caused him to lend a helping hand to many ft poor fellow who had a useful invention which only needed money to develop it and make it pay Splitlog’s first venture was to build a steamboat, which he did in company with his brother. They launched the boat upon the St. Clair river and started in the fishing trade. Uncle Sam soon became jealous of the boys, and confiscated the boat on a charge of smuggling. moved west. In 1842, the Wyandottes, who were the last of the Indian tribes then in Ohio, by the treaty of the Upper Sandusky, ceded to the United States their lands in that, State, and received in exchange land in what is now Wyandotte county, Kan. In 1843 Splitlog came West with some of his tribe, and found, after his arrival at West Port Landing, (now Kansas City), that Ijo only had 50c. in his pocket. He induced an old Indian to go his security for the price of an axe. With this ax he cut cordwood for the steamboats at the rate of 25c. per cord, and after pay ing for the ax, which then cost $3, he soon saved enough to buy a pony, and shortly afterward we find him with a herd of horses. About 1850 Splitlog was mar ried to the granddaughter of tlio old man who went his security for the price of the ax, and shortly afterward he began to build a mill. At this time he had no money to pay for labor, so that he did the work him self. He selected the timber, cut and hauled the logs, and then he had a “raising;” that is, had his neighbors come and help him raise the building. He FINISHED THE MILL HIMSELF, with everything but the burrs. These would cost at that time .8150 and Splitlog had no money: still he was determined not “to give up the idea of running a mill.” When in this dilemma a steamboat, which was unloading a pair of burrs at the ‘ ‘land ing,7’ accidentally let them fall overboard ( and they sank to the bottom of the Missouri river. Splitlog, learning of this, contracted with the owner to pay him $25 for the burrs and take them up himself, which he eventually did after much trouble and hard work, and having got the burrs out ot the river it took but a short time to get ready to start the mill. The ma chinery was rigged for horse-power and the day that Splitlog started ho hitched in eight unbroken horses from his herd and earned 85c. in cash, and in the evening he gave this money to his wife and told her to go to Northrup’s (Splitlog’s present bankers in Kansas City) store and buy them something good to eat, as ho now had that much money that he did not need. Splitlog’s mill was a success, and in 1855 we find him one of the leading men of his tribe. By the treaty of the Upper San dusky the Wyandottes were not allowed to i alienate their lands, but in the year 1855 a new treaty was made between the Wyan dottes and the United States which severed the tribal relations of the Wyandottes and fixed their status as citizens of the United States. The first section of this treaty reads as follows: “The Wyandotte Indians, having become sufficiently advanced in civilization, and de sirous of becoming citizens, it is hereby agreed and stipulated that their organiza tion and their relations with the United States as an Indian tribe shall be dissolved and terminated on the ratification of this “agreement, except in so far as the further continuance of the same may tie necessary to the execution of the stipulations herein; and from and after date of such ratification the said Wyandotte Indians and each and every one of them, except as hereinafter provided, shall be deemed and are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States for all ihtents and purposes, and shall be en titled to all the privileges and inununities of such citizens and shall in all respects be sub ject to the laws of the United States and the territory of Kansas in the same manner as other citizens of said territory.” A SPECULATOR. After the adoption of this treaty Splitlog began to speculate in real estate, and, al though he can neither read nor write, he has been one of the most successful specu lators in the neighborhood of Kansas City, and is to-day worth over $1,000,000. About fourteen years ago Splitlog moved to the Indian Territory and located on Elk river, near the Missouri line, and about four miles from Tiff Citv, and recently he became in terested in' a silver mine in Mc- Donald county, Mo. With his char acteristic energy he began operations at once. He hired a mining expert named B. F. Requa from Chicago to super tend the operations at the mines, and, be coming convinced that to develop the mines and build up the town of Splitlog a railroad was necessary, he, together with his partner in the mines. Moses W. Clay, commenced negotiating with the projectors of the New Orleans, Natchez and Fort Scott Railroad Company, and soon that company was formed for the purpose of building a rail road between tho terminal points named in their title and running by way of Neosho and Splitlog City. This company lsang too slow to meet the vigorous ideas of Split log and Clay, they severed their connections with the same, and Mathias Splitlog, Moses W. Clay, Oeorge Hub bert and others organized the Kausas City, Fort Smith and Southern Railroad Company, with a capital of $3,- 000 000, for the purpose of building a rail road from Kansas City to Fort Smith, pass ing through Splitlog City and Neosho. This road is now graded for at*nit thirty miles between Splitlog City and Joplin, and it is only a question of a few months when the cars will run southward from Joplin to Fort Smith, and Mathias Splitlog, the millionaire Indian, who is probably the richest man of his race will be known all over the country as the only Indian railroad man in the United States. PERSONAL. Mr Splitlog has five children—four boys and one girl—and now lives at Splitlog City, McDonald county, Mo.

THE MORNING NEWS: TUESDAY, JULY 12, 1887. UP IN A BALLOON. Two Cincinnati Aeronauts Who Will be Famous. From the Cincinnati Times-Star, Charley Williams and Harry Young are two aeronauts of whom Cincinnati may be proud. Sober, clear headed, gentlemanly young follows, they have had extraordinary success as skyscrapers, and in all their nu merous voyages through the air have not once sustained an injury. This is a remark able record. At 11:30 o’clock on Fourth of July night, Mr. Wiliams made an ascent, which was the first of the kind ever made. He and his partner, Mr. Young, have a hot-air bal loon seventy-five feet high and fifty feet greatest diameter. At Coney Island, on the night of the Fourth, Mr. Williams made an ascent in this balloon, taking a great quantity of fireworks and red lights with him, which were touched off as lie passed through space. It was a magnifi cent sight, and not onlv enter tained the on-lookers at the Island, but startled the farmers of the country who were much surprised to see rockets, candles, and all that set off up in the clouds. The balloon passed ovor in the neighbor hood of Turkey Bottom and descended in a rye field, and if the wrathful owner of the rj-e reads this it will lie his first information as to the cause of tho tornado-tossed aspect of his field. Mr. Williams was asked to-day if he did not sometimes get scared when above the clouds with a frail balloon his only support. Said he: “I never become frightened, nor do I think that many people do. If you were to go up with me you would not for a moment feel uizzy as you would if looking down from some high building. The most beauti ful view in this world Is obtained from the basket of a balloon. Looking straight down the earth seems ns flat os a board with a thousand variations of color made by the woods and the fields. High hills and their intervening valleys all seem to lie on a level, and it is only by looking off toward the horizon that any difference of height can be noticed. Up to a distance of a mile or so from the earth sounds can be distin guished readily, but on ascending to greater altitudes not a sound can be heard One is in a part of the universe then where every condition is different from anything he lias ever before experienced. The air is rari fied and produces a peculiar sensation, a sort of exhilaration, and a feeling of abso lute independence comes over one. He feels that he is the absolute monarch of all ho surveys; that there is none his right to dispute. At last he has got away from the restrictions of terrestrial life and is in a region where freedom to do anything is unquestionable. The part of the body that is exposed to the sun gets very hot, while the other side is cold. Turn the palm of thehaudtothesun, and while it will literally burn the back will literally freeze, and the silence is almost oppressive. There is not another living being near, not even a bird. Butterflies have been found three miles above the earth, but nothing else. To be up in a balloon for a distance of two or three miles is worth a little risk.” Mr. Williams says that these big, black, cumulus clouds that take possession of the sky and darken the earth look even more sustantial when approached than they do when viewed from the ground. When fifty feet away from them they seem so solid that one is almost tempted to step out of the basket and take a stroll along its smooth, dark surface. He said: “Their thickness varies from a few hun dred to 3,000 feet, and in going through them the light of the sun is obscured, so that when in the midst of a very thick cumulus it is quite impossible to see any thing. The moisture, too, is disagreeable.” “You read about that reporter who as cended 2,000 feet in a ballon and, holding to a parachute, jumped out and descended to the earth in safety?” “Yes, I read about him,” replied Mr. Williams, “and I think he showed poor judgment to jump out of the balloon until ho had his parachute open.” “You are not making any parachute de scents yourself, I suppose?’ “I would if called upon. Ido not think there is any particular danger in descending in a parachute provided it is properly con structed and that the descent is started prop erly. I think it necessary to have a para chute from 20 to 35 feet in diameter. It is of the general shape of an umbrella, you know, and should be made of heavy cloth with gores narrowing upward and ribbed at the seams with heavy cords, which are to be continued down and fastened to tho basket. Care must be taken not to get too much or doo little curve to the top. If I ever make a parachute for my own use I shall, as an extra precaution, put a ring 10 feet in diameter between the cords con necting the top with tho basket and that will make sure of the top opening out when I make the descent. You see tho Karaehute is attached to the basket of the alloon, and in the ascent it is closed up by the force of the air. That reporter out West had a narrow escape, for his para chute did not open until he had gone down ‘2OO feet or more. The only proper way to E repare for a descent in a parachute is to ave someone go up with you in a gas bal loon and then, when up 1,200 or 1,500 feet, pull the valve cord of the balloon and let it down quickly, so as to cause the inflation of the parachute, then have your partner in the balloon cut the connecting rope anil let you down. The safety all lies in getting started right. If you don’t start right, you’re gone, for tliere is no half way station at which to stop and make repairs.” A Dreadful Dilemma. From the St. Paul Globe. It was in a leading Third street dry goods store yesterday afternoon that two ladies stood Wore the counter and kept the dap per clerk busy pulling down dress goixis and draping them over his arms that the light might strike them favorably. One of tho ladies had passed the meridian of life, while the other was just budding into sweet wom anhood. She chatted slyly with the clerk, commenting on tho styles of the different dress patterns, and alter half an hour of dilly-dallying she selected a few yards of one piece, and the clerk wrapped it up neatly. “That will be sls fi7,” he said, as ho laid the bundle down on the counter in front of her. The young lady smiled sweetly, and drove her right hand down into tier dress pocket. She felt around in its depths a half a min ute, when a strange look came over her face. She blushed painfully, and her eyes wan dered to the race of the elder lady, who, sur prised at the expression on the young lady’s lace, came ovor to her. Still painfully blushing, tho young woman whispered some thing to the elder and blushed deeper than ever. The elder lady thought a minute, then walking over to'where the clerk stood drumming on the counter, asked: “Are vou married!” “Yes,” replied tho clerk. Taking hold of the lapel of his coat she drew his ear down to her mouth and whis pered a few words. “Why, certainly,”said tho clerk; “right liehind that pile of prints.” And turning his back on the two ladies he saun tered carelessly down the store. Catching the young girl by the shoulder, the elder lady pulled her beliind the pile of prints, ana when, ft minute later, they came out and the clerk strolled back, the elder lady held a pnrketbook in her hand and paid the clerk for tho goods the young lady had pur chased. Then, smiling sweetly on him, they went out. When they had got well away from the store door the young woman said to the other lady: “I never felt so ashamed in my life. I don’t see how I came to forget it. "That’s tho last time I'll put my pocketlxxik in my stock ing.” There were 60,036 births in Paris last year, of which more than 17,000 were illegitimate. There were 57,098 deaths during the same period, of which more than 10,000 were due to pulmonary diseases. Imitated Constantly But. never equaled. Colgate's exquisitely perfumed Cashmere Bouquet Toilet Soup, NEW TREATMENT FOR LOCKJAW. Medical Men Think They Have Found | a Remedy for the Dreaded Disease. j Fi-om the Sew Fort Sun. Chicago, July (5. —John Kelleher ran a ' rusty nail into liis foot, ntwut an inch back from his big toe, on May 20. He washed the wound out with cold water, tied a piece of cotton over it, and in a day the foot was comparatively well again, the nail having just punctured the skin. Yesterday morn ing he complained of a sore throat. When the physician asked him to open his mouth it was discovered that lie had traumatic lockjaw. An hour later it became apparent that extreme measures must be resorted to. Kelleher was put under the influence of ether. The sponge had barely been applied to the suf ferers nostrils when the initial tetanic con vulsion displayed itself. He jump 1 from the operating slab and made a mad rush for the window. His jaws wore set, his eyes protruded, and he fought with a frenzied strength which the combined efforts of four men could hardly overcome. Again the anaesthetic was given to him, this time with better effect. An incision four inches long and three inches deep was made an inch and a half be hind the hip bone. The sciatic nerve was then exposed. Here a strong metallic sound was passed beneath the nerve, and it was stretched downward from the spinal cord with a pressure of 175 pounds. The gash was dressed with iodoform ami antiseptics and sewed up. An incision three inches long was next made in the groin, the knife cut ting downward past the femoral artery until the crural nervo was exposed. Here the sound was again used and the nerve drawn downward from the spinal cord with a pres sure- of 50 pounds. This idea of treatment for lockjaw is anew one and was first successfully attenmtedln Euro]ie about six months ago, and the .case of Kelleher is the first in the West. It was the left foot which was injured. The two nerves treated are those supplying - , locomotion and sense tion from the nerve centre to the seat of the wound. The stretching was done to destroy the nerv e enrreut which conducted the sen sations froiji the scar in the left foot pro duced by the nail to the base of the brain, also to prevent the conveyance of the irri tation from the pymmic foot to the brain. The case is being watched with great inter est by the medical men of Chicago, as it promises to become a remedy for the dread ed disease. Nightmare, sick headache, depression of spirits and want of ambition are symptoms of a dis eased liver. The lungs, stomach and bowels are all in sympathy. Life is only a living death. Dr. Pierce’s “Golden Medical Dis covery” acts upon the torpid liver and ef fectually removes all these difficulties and disorders. Nervous feelings, gloomy fore bodings and irritability of temper all dis appear. DRY GOODS, ETC. MINIMI! SUCCESSORS TO B. F.
