A WOMAN'S DOUBLE LIFE. A Strange Case Recalled by that of the Chicago Girl who Lostiier Memory. From the Neui York Sun . Hakrisbvro, Pa., July Si.—“l read re cently,” said a resident of Crawford county, this State, “the account of the curious im pairment of memory reported in the case of Miss Houtaling, the Chicago young lady, and while it must be that the case is an ex traordinary one, there died in Crawford county a few years ago a lady who pre sented oue far more extraordinary and mys terious in its nature. Her name was Marv Reynolds. She was a daughter of John Reynolds, one of the early settlers of the county. She was at the age of 10 a young lady of superior accomplishments and of a vivacious nature. At that ago she was pros trated with a nervous disease which left her blind, deaf, and speechless. She re mained in that condition for about a month when she recovered her sight and hearing. Her mind was as strong as ever, and she had recovered her physical health and strength, when one morning about two months after regaining her sight and hear ing, she awoke with all recollection of every thing she ever knew entirely gone. Her speech, however, had returned to her, but her utterances were imperfect and strangely constructed. Her mind was apparently us sound as it had over been, but she did not know her parents nor any of her relatives or friends. She could not name a single letter of the alphabet, and had forgotten the use of written language. She had always been a famous housekeeper, but all her knowledge of domestic employment was gone. She did not know the use of a broom, and a kettle boiling on the stove was a source of wonder to her. She remained in this strange condition for over a month, when she awoke with all her original con sciousness. Bhe had passed out of her period of lost memory during the night. All re membrance of the weeks she had boon in that state was gone. The period was an entire blank to her. Ail the knowledge and attainments which she had forgotten during that period returned to her. While she {tad been in the state of second nature, as it might be called, various things had been taught to her. Kho remained in her natural condition only three weeks when she lapsed into the other stnteugain, and as before for got, everything pertaining to her natural state. What she had learned during her lirst lapse canto back to her in the second. The three weeks’ lucid interval was a blank to her. “These lapses continued at irregular in tervals for a period of twenty-five years. Sometimes she would be in one condition for months, and then change for months into tli! other. Sometimes the lapses would be but for a few hours. Most of the time sne remained in the second condition. The changes always took place in her sleep. In passing from her unnatural into her natural life no evidence of the change was percepti ble, but in changing to the other way her sleep was such that nothing could awaken her until the transposition of natures had taken place. The sleep was, in fact, almost suspended animation, and frequently lasted twenty-four hours. As she had no conscious ness when in one condition of ever hav ing heeiLinthe other it was long before she cametp remits it through the statements and affirmations of her friends. When she came to fully appreciate the situation in which she was placed she could foretell days liefore the (Treaded change to the sec ond condition came that it was approach ing, and at first she always bade all her rel atives uud friends a tearful farewell, fear ing that she might never awaken from the longj. doffth-like sleep. As the years passed, however, and the transitions be came familiar to her, their approach was no longer attended by the solemn apprehen sions. t “In the course of time Miss Reynolds ac quired as much knowledge in her unnatural state as she had in her natural. Her brother taught her to write in the former. He gave her a sentence which he had written to copy, She took the pen and copied the words, but wrote with her left hand, and from right to left. A singular circum stance connected with her was that any thing could lie taught to her with greater ease while she was in her lapsed condition, and that in that condition she wrote charm ing verses, a gift she did not command in her natural state. Likewise she was of a most imaginative nature in her second con dition, with a wit extremely keen, and pos sessed remarkable conversational powers. In her natural state she was quiet and thoughtful. She formed most peculiar and strong dislikes in her lapses against those who were her best and most intimate friends in her natural life. For -more than twenty years she was a teacher in the public schools of Crawford county. For several years before her death she had lived with out lapsing into her second, or unnatural, condition. Relatives of hers live in the vicinity of Meadville and Titusville yet, I believe.” STOMACH TINKERING. The Disposition of Man to take Liber ties with a Patient Friend. Fi om the New York Sun. ‘‘There is nothing on which n man experi ments oftener than his stomach,”said a New York gentleman who is old enough to have dys]pniu and young enough to hope to be cured. "A man will tinker with his stomach when he wouldn’t think of interfering with his clerk or bookkeeper in his store. Yet he uus been in business all his life, and prob ably could take the place of his bookkeeper to-morrow. The bookkeeper has work to do, and so long ns he does it well his employer doesn't come around with anew system or a ucov style of books every week or two and nnve the bookkeeper switched off. That’s hot the way to do business; but the very 'uua who wouldn't potter around with lus employes goes experimenting on himself whi n he doesn’t know what, if anything, is the matter with him. " I'here’s a thing I read in the Sun a few weeks ago thut a man should drink a few pints of hydrant, water immediately on get ting up in the morning. Now let me give s”u a list of the things that, a man should take into his stomach the first thing every morning. I've authority for all these;some . a y° been told me by my friends, the ma joiity I have seen in the paiiors, which have recently done u good deal in this good for the stomach in the morning line: A pinch of salt in it* water. Ati uspoonful of salt in water as hot as you can tale it. A cold lemonade very sweet. •i'll IC..IUH juice with suit. tut n lemon without drinking anything. A cocktail, Strong coffee, lea and toast. juice of three oranges. A mw egg, j'igs. licet' tea. Immediately on gelling up take a hard crack aid devote five minutes to masticating it “feebly. lake a tepid bath and absorb water through a-pores of your skin. This will make you ac l| vi; mid limber all day. UM-feise till you arc la a sweat. Then drink ,/ u 7' Unit bus been bulled, thus making sure of death of any germs. • “That, in only a start on tho list. Thore s a'fascination in it to me. 1 want to try '•i 'll one of those directions and see what u'i's t it, ban on me. Every wok or so 1 see new one, and I cxiierimoiit with that, hem must lie somethin;; gool In them for ' inch,sly, w ) ul | i want to know is why " they such a fascination for most men I ny must a man always be tinkering with | s stomachf There are hundreds of patent i' dieitiets, and the pi oprietors of all Of them e growing rich. It nos gone so far that h ' cut medicines arc advertised tocoun “lacttbe effect of injuries and impure taken under the guise of tonics. Next i':ro will lie now patent medicines to coun -1,1 act the effects of these. All these modi i,!! 1,1 vc “ big sale. There seems to tie an a . '!" i la a man’s stomach, like a child’s •sire for every new toy, that makes him 1(1 give his stomuch un experience nr ' c . vel y new medicine ho hoars of hvahoA* 1 * friends uud newspapers “It sometimes seems to lee that mortal spirit of mankind that formerly had an outlet in cracking some one’s head with a battloax or jabbing lances at each other on holidays now vents itself in making a battleground of a man’s stomach. One friend says: “Old fellow, you’re not looking well. Dyspepsia again? Well l know just the tliing tor it. Take a Dint of boiling water every morning. Brace you up. Make you feel like anew man, ’ “Next friend cornea along, says same thing, only cold water. Another man says some patent mineral water. Try them all. My stomuch is the most precious tiling about me. If it is out of order. I’m no good, vv hen it’s in tine trim I’m chipper. If I were going to invest 10c. in a scheme I’d want to know what it was and what return I’d get before I'd put my money in. Still, I try any number of experiments on mv stomach, and scores of other men that I know do the same thing. Isn’t a man’s stomach more precious than his money? I wonder what weakness of human nature it is that makes him more careful of the wrong one. Is it curiosity or a hankering after something new?” THROWING DICE. A Form of Gambling That is Growing in Favor Everywhere. From the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. The habit of dico shaking appears to have superseded all other forms of gambling in St. Louis at present, and not only in the city but all through the State is this tho case. The course of the wonderful prev vulenee of dice shaking is to be found in the gambling laws, which have been en forced in St. Louis more rigidly perhaps than in any other large city of the Union. “I used to think nobody played dice but negroes,” said a man who has a saloon and no less than six sets of dice for the accom modation of his customers, “but I’ve got to think dice is a pretty good white man’s game. It’s a great game. In tho first place, it’s square. There’s nothing in it but dead luck, and everybody in the game has an equal show.” “There is no cheating in it, then, is there ?” the reporter inquired. “Well, there may be. There are what are known as ‘hold outs.’ For instance, a man throwing the dice out the first time throws three aces and two other numbers. ,By a dexterous movement he can turn one of the other numbers over until the ace is up, grab that in position in his little finger, throw the the other dice in the box and shake it. As he puts down the box and lifts it up ho loaves the dice he ‘holds out’ on the table, ace up. Then there are certain men who can palm dice very nicely and deposit them on the counter with any number up they desire. Cogged dice—that is, dice that are loaded to turn up certain numbers—have been used, but the rankest, ‘chump’ can catch on to a cogged dice in no time, and when there are three or four in a game a man has to chain lightning to work tho hold-out to any extent. Most games, how ever, are on the square, and a hold-out is no good if the players insist that the dice be rolled out of the box, instead of the box simply being inverted with the dice under it ” “What is the favorite game?” “It depends. There is a good deal of sin gle dice shaken—that is, one dice is shaken with ace high, and deuce low. It’s a rapid game. One shake apiece among the players and high man goes out. Then the shake passes around again until the last two in, shake off. They cgn shake it off at a sin gle throw or dash, or they can shake horses, which means liest two out of three. You and I shake, say we’re the last two; I win the first threw, that’s a horse on you. We shake again and you win, that’s a horse on me. That’s horse mid horse. Next shake the winner wins the game, and the other man is stuck. Then there’s a game in which three dies are used, the ace counting 100, tho spots 60. There are three throws. If a man should throw three aces first throw, he lets up. That’s as much as he can get. Tho other man’s only chance is to tie tlie throw. If the first man throws and aco, and the other two dies turn up anything except six he throws them again. On the last of the three throws the numbers outside of six count. If a man throws an ace on the first dash, a six on the next, and a five on the next he makes 100. Poker dice is the game, though. You use five dice in that, and the spots count just as in poker, except that as a general thing straight’s don’t count. Three of a kind heats two pair, a full hand beats threes, fours beat a full hand, and fives can’t tie beaten except by a higher range of fives. Five aces are not lieatuhle. Ace is high deuce low. There’s lots of fun in poker dice, and some skill in determining what a man shall throw to. It is very often a better policy to throw to travs than to aces or to deuces than to sixes, but all these things a man can only tumble to hy experi ence. There are other ways of tossing dice for money, such as betting how long it will take to throw all the numnors from ace to five with live dice. A man may do it in the first throw, in three throws, or it may take him twenty. It's the some way with throw ing five of'a given kind. I’ve seen a man shake fifty-three times trying to throw five aces, and I’ve seen another man threw them in a single throw. It’s luck and noth ing else. Skinners have little show be cause no man who runs dice in his house wants his customers done up hy a crook. A man with a streak oC bad luck will go broke soon enough without having the dico ‘mon keyed’on him.” Luck is believed in, bv all dice gamblers, but the dice gambler, like his fellow of the faro table, has his little superstitions. He’ll ask a negro to touch his dice for him. He’ll kick if some unlucky party—in the phrase of the class a Jonah—touches them. Certain numbers he'll believe ill, and others he wouldn’t shake to if he was to lose his head on the dash. A game at the Planters’ House bar the other evening illustrated how this supersti tion on numbers clung to a man. It was a game remarkable in the first place because it was at the hotel bar, where a few years ago a dice box was regarded as a plebeian institution; in the second place because the dice throwers were high rollers. It started among a party who shook lor a bottle of wine. They shook for two bottles of wine. Tliry got ti> shaking for $5 and $lO “a crack.” The money went up and camo down rapidly; it wusu t put. on the counter, but the loser just paid over to the winner after overv shake. In addition to tho game for tho regular stakes there were bets on tho outside—hots that certain players would not beat a certain throw. One man tat that another would not heata certain throw, fours. The wager was a suit of clothes. The thrower threw trays and lost, wrote out the order for a suit, anil the winner lilt laughing The los<*r of tliufc lh*t lost on tLio regular siukc ntaut $25. The ganv stopmxi aismt 12 o’clock. One man was loser on the night’*amusement only hut ho said that ho wus really only $l2O out, as ho had beaten the others out ot $550 some nights before. In this gnme there was ono man who had a pronounced aversion to t hrowing to sixes. “They’re Jonahs for mo," he said. “I’d rather throw to deuces,” and several times he discarded good layouts ot sixes for poor little deucos, and really seemed to tx> able to throw deuces tatter than any other Fives are favorite nutntars with dice shakers. In addition to peculiar Uv liefsas to numbers, there are taliots as to the way to handle the box. Home men never throw the #OO without blowing on them. Other* always blow on a dice that rolls on the floor. Home men would not shake dice if they couldn’t rap the bottom of the box on toe counter two or three times and many believe that they cuff cliaiip their luck by shif ting the box in shaking from one hand to another. The most ridiculous suisTstitlon ever observed, though, was that of u prominent lawyer who, when ill a los ing streak, discarded the dice boa and be gan shaking the iallies out of his plug hat. Whether there wa* any peculiar virtue in the hut is net known, but lie pu led out of his bad luck and quit the particular game in which he was playing about $W and as inauy Oriuki ahead.
