A REMARKABLE EDITOR.
Ho is Both Blind and Deaf, and Yet
Works V ieorously and Successfully.
From the Utica Observer.
It -w as early in the past summer that Wil
liam E. Cramer celebrated the fortieth an
niversary of his editorship of the Keening
Wisconsin, of Milwaukee, of which news
paper he is also senior proprietor. This ven
erable man is the most remarkable as well
as the oldest newspaiier man in the West.
He is totally blind, and as near totally deaf
a l -any one can well be, and yet he is one
of the smartest, shrewdest, most in
dustrious, and best posted newspaper
men in the country. He works as
hard, reads and writes as much, and keeps
closer office hours, in all probability, than
any other newspaper man in the city. Of
course it is necessary for him to dictate all
of his editorial work to an amanuensis, who
also reads to him by the aid of an audi
phone, and in this way he manages to do as
much work as most men who possess all of
their senses. For fully forty years the
blind editor has presiaed' over the' editorial
columns of his paper, furnishing from one
to several columns of matter every day dur
ing this long and eventful period.
The figure of this cheerful, chatty blind
man is familiar to every man, woman or
child in his section. He daily takes walks
around the city, and, strange as it may
seem, can find his way about as readily as
any one possessing full eyesight. He can
go alone to any particular spot or house in
the city without the least trouble. Of late
he is generally accompanied by a small boy,
who walks by his side merely as a precau
tion of safety and to please his family and
friends. A guide is in no sense necessary
He trots along without the use of a cane,
and a stranger would never imagine that
his handsome gray eyes were sightless. He
lost his sight many years ago by excessive
work in and out or season. His deafness is
due to an accident that occurred when he
was a boy. He was coasting on a New
England hill one cold day in his youth,
when his sled plunged through
the ice and landed him in a
frozen river. He was rescued more dead
than alive, and though finally resuscitated,
the experience cost him his sense of hearing.
He is <0 years of age, as hale and hearty as
many a man of 35, has made a handsome
fortune, and is one of the solid men of the
Cream City. A half century ago Mr.
Cramer was a New York journalist, a mem
ber of that brilliant group that had for its
central figure the late Thurlow Weed, who
was a warm friend and great admirer of
the young man who was then preparing to
invade the far Northwest to seek his for
tune. Horace Greeley, and Raymond, of
the old Times, were also intimates of Mr.
Cramer, and he tells many interesting anec
dotes and reminiscences of them and of
other of the old-time journalists who have
long since passed over to “the silent city.”
The range of this man’s information is
something to lie wondered at. He is a regu
lar perambulating encyclopaedia, aud he can
answer almost any question relating to the
political or other imjiortant events of the
past century at a moment’s notice. The
memory Billy, as nearly all Mil
waukeeans call him, is something marvel
lous. When a fact is caught by the compli
cated machinery of his brain it is held
where the impalpable dust of ages cannot
reach it. His library is large and well se
lected. Among other rare things it is said to
contain every printed record of the proceed
ings of Congress. The contents of the
Congressional Record from volume 1
to the last issue are at his tongue's
end, and he can teli the date, page, or para
graph of an important event that has been
chronicled in tl i> cheerful and breezy pub
lication since it first started. His in
firmities have, ; anything, sharpened or
qpickened hi- tue llv bright intellect,
and he is to-day one of the very remarkable
journalists of this country. A blind and
deaf man at the head of a big newspaper is
a journalistic novelty indeed. All the lead
ing papers.of the country are systematically
read to Mr. Cramet every day by his secre
tary. The range of his information ex
tends to the remotest corner of the tele
graphic page of the latest issues of the me
Mr. Cramer's career has not been without
thrilling and memorable incidents. He was
in Europe during the Franco-Prussian war
and was caught in Paris during its memor
able siege. He lived on mule meat and suf
fered many hardships until the capitulation
of the city. When that famous old hotel,
the ill-fated Newhall House, was erected in
this city about thirty years ago, Mr. Cramer
was the first regular boarder. He continued
to live at this house until its destruction by
fire on that terrible morning of Jan. id,
ISB4, when 100 people were roasted to death
by the catastrophe. Mr. Cramer was one
of the last to leave the house, and ho
escaped more dead than alive. His
apartments were entirely • surrounded by
flames when he was aroused. With liis
wife he attempted to find his way out
of the roaring furnace. Both were in their
night clothes, which were nearly burned otf
of them. The marble tiling in the halls
was so hot that the flash was fairly roasted
on their feet as they passed over them.
They groped around until they were finally
rescued, lioth in a fainting condition, and
so horribly burned that it was feared for a
long time neither could recover. The great
building collapsed a moment, after they
Were out. After a long siege both recov
ered, but their escape was next to miracu
lous. By this terrible fire the works of art,
a fine private library, and the odds and
ends which had been collected during Mr.
Cramer's busy life were entirely destroyed,
together with many valuables of various
kinds, and all of Mrs. Cramer’s valuable
HOW WASHINGTON DIED.
Medical Men Assert That He Was Bled
and Blistered to Death.
From the New York World.
Washington, Sept. 18.—Thirty members
of the late Medical Congress met in a social
"■ay after the regular business of the day,
in the parlor of a guest at one of the hotels.
The delegates were elderly medical men of
the so-called old school of doctors, but rep
resenting progressive minds of the allo
pathic branch of the medical profession;
some of them had been professors in medical
colleges many years ago. These old frionds
in a conversational way compared notes
relative to the radical changes which have
taken place in the methods of treatment of
diseases, the largo and frequent rio-.ee of
calomel and other powerful remedies ad
ministered to their patients in the practice
of forty and fifty years ago, compared with
the almost infinitesimal doses now prescribed
and the now total abandonment of some
remedies and inodes of treatment which were
in general practice theu.
The old time doctor and even the physi
cian of but recent date formerly carried in
Ins coat pocket a formidable' la nee, the
s’ghtof which frightened his nervous w
bent. With that instrument he proceeded
by "'ay of preliminary preparation for a
"course of medicine.’’ to open a large vein
in the sick person's arm and therefrom draw
Iron) a pint to a quart of blood. Then fol
lowed the inevitable prescription of fifteen
or twenty grains of calomel, ucc impunled
by a 1 Kittle ot castor oil, and the patient
would he "laid up" thereafter for some flays
engaged in recovering from his heroic med
i' el treatment. Now phlebotomy or blood
letting has I wen almost, wholly alamdoned.
1 alotnel when prescribed at all is given in
half-grain doses at intervals, ot three or four
hours, and so on to the end of the list of old
One of the physicians present, pursuing
this theme, astonished hut hearers by s*
S'-fting that the "Father of Hi* Country,’’
ben. George Washington, did not die a nat
ural death, hut was killed by his doctors.
Here several voire* simultaneously **-
That’s a libel! Where is your evidencef'
Thereupon the supposed libeller produced
'•"om a Georgetown, D. C.. newspaper,
printed in 170, an account Of tba illness,
death and burial of Gen. Washington, to
gethar With LOe cerMftcate of the phyM'ians,
yr. Cnuk and IhcF, wbu usatwi the iliu*
tnous patient in his last illness. Theoertif
icate of these physicians, who resided about
fifteen miles from Georgetown, showed that
Gen. Washington, having been exposed to
rain on Friday, Dec IS. in the night of that
day was attacked with chills, accompanied
with pain in the upper and fore part of the
throat, coughing, a difficult rather than
painful swallowing, succeeded by fever and
quick and laborious respiration.
“General Washington,” says the account,
“regarding the attack as only a severe cold,
would not send for a physician, but called
in one of his servants, a bleeder, so-called,
who took from the sick man’s arm nearly a
pint of hlood, which was a goodly portion
of the vigorous, healthy life of the patient.
The patient was about in that condition un
til the arrival of his physician at 10 oclock
the next morning (Saturday), when the doc
tors proceeded to repeat the bleeder’s opera
tion, and twice within about four hours
took other two pints or quarts of blood.
In the interim were employed two copious
bleedings, a blister was applied to the part
affected, two moderate dose of calomel were
given, succeeded by repeated doses of tartar
emetic, amounting to five or six grains,
with no other effect than a copious discharge
from the bowels.”
“This was treatment of the heroic kind,”
interjected the alleged libeller, “which was
enough to kill any ordinary well man, and
was evidently doing the business for the gen
eral, for the learned doctors add:
“The powers of life seemed now manifestly
yielding to the force of the disorder. Blis
ters were applied to the extremities together
with a cataplasm of bran and vinegar to the
throat. Speaking, which was painful from
the beginning, now became almost imprac
ticable. Respiration grew more and more
contracted and imperfect until 11:30 o’clock
on Saturday night, when, retaining the pos
session of his intellect, he expired without a
“No wonder,” remarked tho alleged libel
ler. “How could ho struggle after losing
about all the blood in his. Ixidy, with huge
blisters aiding in the depletion of vital
strength and his stomach crammed with
tartar emetic and calomel, so that there was
no room for food or fluids, which he should
have had to keep up the system ? Poor man,
how he must have suffered; and he could
not mnke them stop their torture, although
he seems to have tried to do so. But the
medical men certify that after rejieated
efforts to be understood he succeeded in ex
pressing a desire that he might lie permitted
to die without interruption. There, my
brother doctors, are you convinced? Wasn't
that a clear case of malpractice?”
“No, sir,’’ humorously responded a brother
doctor. “That was in accordance with the
treatment adopted by that eminent physi
cian, Dr. Sangrado, who had a large
practice in Spain over 200 years ago, which
practice, as imparted by the renowned San
grado to his apt student Gil Bias, consisted
in copious bleeding and keeping the patient’s
body filled with hot water.”
From the London Globe.
Seldom can there be seen in any decent
street in a London suburb a house so dingy,
dilapidated and squalid-looking as this. All
the lower window panes have been shat
tered (by stone-throwing apparently) and
tho broken glass is lying on the dirty sills
and on the rubbish heaps in the damp area
of the basement. A house agent’s board,half
thrown down, bore a torn printed paper an
nouncement, “This House to Let;’’ the shut
ters of the rooms were closed, and all very
dirty; the brickwork was discolored
with rain, and getting loose and broken;
the whole aspect of the house was if
it had been , deserted for half a century.
I think there is sufficient matter for the
growth of a myth or traditionary ghost
story concerning Carlyle, in the following
incident which took place on the evening of
this same day in May, ISB7, of which I
have been speaking. It was getting
dark, aud a lady who lives in Cheytie row
was coming homo. As she passed No. 5 she
saw a group of childreu and young girls
standing before it, in the roadway, looking
up at the house and speaking in eager whis
pers. She know one of the girls and asked
her what was the matter—what they were
looking at. The girl replied with hesita
“Oh! ma’am, we are waiting to see the
“Indeed! Where is there a ghost?”
The other girls came close to her, and they
pointed and nodded their heads gravely at
the empty house of the Carlyles.
“Have any of you seen this ghost?” asked
the lady, with much interest in the matter.
“No, ma’am. We haven’t seen it, but my
sister Folly was told that Mrs. .Smith at the
shop saw it."
“Who told Polly?” asked the lady.
“Aunt Eliza, or leastways, somebody
that heard it from Aunt Eliza.”
“Oh? Then it was Mrs. Smith who saw
tho ghost ?’
“Oh, yes. Mrs. Smith, last Friday
“What w r as the ghost like?”
Then the girls all whispered at once, “It
was a tall old man, with white hair, and he
was wrapped in a great white sheet.”
Then they all looked with curious, eager
timidity, up at the broken windows of the
“Did Mrs. Smith see him there, with the
shutter closed like that?" asked the lady.
There was a pause, and then one of the
“No! The shutter must have been open,
and the window, too.”
“How do you know that?” inquired the
“Oh: Because Aunt Eliza said he heck
oned to Mrs. Smith, and she was in a great
fright, but she had to stop Localise he spoke
“He spoke to her? Do you know what he
“Oh, yes! He spoke in in a strange, faint
sort of voice, and said, ‘bring me two
penn’orth of tobacco.”'
The lady did not laugh, hut she tried to
dispel the superstitious ideas of the girls, by
“Don’t you think it is likely to have tieen
old Barnes, the jiainter, in his white coat
and apron ? He may have been sent into
the house by the owner to do some job
there, and he can't get on with his work
unless he, smokes, you know?”
They did know; but they did not seem
willing to adopt her commonplace view of
the matter, and she left them still looking
at the broken windows, expecting to see, the
A ghost that calls for “two jienn’ort.h of
tobacco" in the empty house No. 5 Cheyne
row! A more appropriate burlesque could
not have lieen invented by the cleverest of
our many writers who devote their talents
to making men and things ridiculous. Car
lyle himself, in the flesh, would have felt
the humor of it and enjoyed it immensely.
An Elder’s Unique Way of Advertising
fr'rnm the [Sihotel Beit.
Elder Blodgett was one of tho old timers
who used to preach in a town in the south
eastern part of Dakota Territory. On week
flays lie carried fin a piosperous livery
stable business. There was n great deal of
competition between him and the Justice of
the place in marriage ceremonies, and they
hod cut the former price of 415 down to a
much lower figure. One day a couple who
lived down on the bottoms were married by
the elder. After the ceremony tin- groom
acknowledged that he hadn't a cent, and
askwl the elder to trust him until fall.
•‘l'll tell you what I’ll do,” replied
the minister. "You and ver wife
just agree to drive around town a
little while, carrvin' a sign advertisin' my
business, an’ I’ll call it square ” They
agreed to do it, and in a few minutes the
blushing bride and the proud gi 'om were
riding about the street* up <m a high seat in
a lumber wagon, learing aloft a canvas
