THE MACON TELEGRAPH: THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 5, 1894
He Used His Occult Science as a Reme
dial Agent for Various Kinds
MUCH EVIDENCE IN HIS FAVOR
After a Waek'a Deliberation the Judge*
pronounced the Hypnotist a Fraud
and Sentenced Him to Prison
tor Sixteen Months*
A curious trial at law has recently
be n ih-eld a-t Zabern, in Germany, In
which testimony of the occult sciences
tiu-i discussion of supernatural powcfa
were so mingled as to arouse the klffh-
ea: interest of the public. The defend
ant in the oat>e was one G ttfried Jost,
commonly known as "The Sleeper of
Dorlishelm." and The charge against
. him wiis fraud. -He had praotCced his
pecuiilaj* arts for years, and his clients
, were numbered by thousands, scat
tered in all parts olf the- world. The
seu^uou caused by his arrest-and trial
was, therefore*, very great.
The “Sleeper" was bom at Dorlis-
heiro, in Alsace, and was in early life
a tailor; but twenty-five or thirty years
ni'j he went to Paris t live. Tners ne
attended the meetings of a “magnetic
cluo" and served the well-known Paris
ian hypnotist, Dr. Desjardin, for two
years. ‘He then 'returned to Dorilsh-olm
and began to practice the healing art
under tile system of hypnotism. His
reputati n 'fchvaime so great that, ac
cording to the New York Tribune, pa
tients ilockod to him nil points of the
compass, and even from abroad. On
an average, forjy to fifty per* 11s con
sulted him dlaly. .No fee wa« demand
ed, but people were aVvUf.nm.-d L»» pay
a dollar for taco con.siulta.tion of fbeit
cwn accord. 'His income was estimated
at $10,000 to $12,000 a\,year. He was
assisted in his "business ” ai^d "hypno
tized’,’ first, by his mother and after
ward by his niece, Caecilie Wolff, a
woman of. 28, who was prosecuted as
ihls accomplice.‘While he was in a hyp
notical condition his patients laid
their hands on his and brought hairs,
rags and other objects into contact
with him. (He even professed to treat
medically absent people by means of
his clairvoyant intellect and the objects
brought into contact with him. He had
never studied medicine. His inter
course with his patients was partly
direct, partly through the medium of
ihifl niece. He made the diagnosis in a
hypnotized eta'te. The patients were
. neycr* questioned by 'the memtoors of
seer’s family or his servants. Wit
nesses declared-that Jost had expressly
forbidden This. He.has been assisted
for two years past by a doctor of ipedi-
clne named . Otto Grosse, who wrote
proscriptions for >tGie remedies’ ordered
by him. Dr.: Grosse was a patient in
Dr. Binswanger’s famous •establD'h-
ment for tile treatment of nervous dis
eases at Jena In 18S9. He had made- a
edlentlflo fctudy of hypnotism and de
clared himself convinced of the effi
cacy of Jost’s treatment.
Twice before the present time Tost has
bten prosecuted and .punished for fraudu
lent practices. But never, before has his
whole business been »o‘ thoroughly in-
vestlgatod and so great a-public interest
been manifested, in the case. Every day
during his trial’ the court was crowded,
many people coming from afar, even
from foreign lands. No less than forty-
three witnesses, some of them eminent
scientific experts, were put on the stand,
and their evidence was highly Interest
ing., showing os it did in how high a
degree this worker of therapeutic mira
cles enjoyed; the confidence of Ills patients.
One of the witnesses was Lieut. Gen.
von IlepKOMnn, governor of the fortress
of Straaburg. He state! that he bad .vis
ited Jost on an excursion "rather for the
fun of the thing." Jost had Leon in
correct in diagnosis. The general had got
the impression that the thing was a fraud.
Another witness, an Inn or beer-houm
keeper at Altklrcb, had consulted Jost
about his wife, • who had been paralyzed
by a stroke of apoploxy. Jost had given
a true diagnosis, but failed to cure the
patient. The witnesses for the defense
unanimously declared that 'the sleeper"
had, mostly without asking questions,
made correct diagnoses of their diseases,
and of those of absent patients whose
hair, etc., had been brought Into contact
■with him. In many cases complete cures,
or at least considerable improvement, had
resulted from the treatment. Dr. von
Langsdorff of Freiburg, who had studied
hypnotism' for forty years, had observed
Jost for scientific reasons, and hud not
got the Impression that he was a swin
dler. A notary from Constance had con
sulted ‘Jost about his mother.-in-law. and
had received a correct diagnosis and ad
vice which led to cure. The wife of an
other lawyer of good rtunding stated that
Jost had cured her of an ulcer In tho
stomach’. The burgomaster of Dorlisheim
v gave him a brilliant certificate of charac
ter*. He had treated the poor for noth
ing, and his beneficence had become pro
verbial in the neighborhood. A woman
whose doctors had said that she had only
two or three fecks to live had been re
stored to health by him. One of the wit
nesses’had consulted him about his wife.
From her hair Jost had ascertained not
.only the disease from which *ho had
been suffering, but also .another which
hai begun during his journey and of which
he know nothing. All of tbes£ wltuessc.i
emphatically declared their faith in the
healing power of.“the sleeper" though
most of them said that they had gone tp
him without any such faith and had had
their doubts dispelled.
The first expert who was examined Wai
Professor Furstncr of Strasburg L’ld
versity. He had beyn very much struck
by the fact mat so great an upporatu*
had been necessary in *.rder to hypnotize
Jo»t. In the case of persons well fltt* il
/or hypnotization the process did not re
quire nearly so much time. No instance
hypnotization bsl"g continued for years
without injury to the intellect liad ever
come to his knowledge. Jost bad refused
to let himself be hypnotized by him and
demanded that the operation should take
Place in Ms own dwelling.' At Zabern,
vn the oiher hand, he had at once de
clared hi* wlllingnes to let himself be
hypnotized in court—that is, umM sur
roundings certainly ill fitted for the pur
pose. The professor attached no im
portance to the’ closing or not clorlng
“f Jost’e eyes during hynotization, be-
Oiive it proved nothing. But another
Jh’ng hal struck him when Jost was
hypnotic!. The pupils showed no altera
tion. such as was wont to appear urdor
hypnos.#, und a considerable vibration
visible in the face and the eyelids.
When he (Furstner) tried to open the
eyelids he had encountered vigorous re-
si?ranee; the eyeballs were not turned up-
’*■“‘1 as was usual under hypnosis, ar.d
he r.a l ot.-^rvKd voluntary motions of the
‘•yes. He did not regard ths State in
which he had sevn Jost tho day belors
genuine hyncpsls. In his opinion the
pe-,.-.|f.* ho were really hypnotized were
Jost'.- visitors. He did not believe xn
telepathy, and regard*! as false JoSt’s
statement mat conceptions farmed thtm.
sel\.i under hypnosis which were pet
PT** en t in a normal wak'Rf state.
Professor Xaunyln agreed with Pro-
'easor rijnrtner in denying clairvoyance,
£hi<n rrnsfct carefully clsttoguiehed
*ota Um hypnosis of experimental path
ology. Clairvoyance had alwftys been
flatly denied by men )f science. Nor was
it admissible to ..call clairvoyance s. fur*
ther development of hypnotism, for clair
voyance was older than hypnotism
Krleger, privy- councillor on medical af
fairs, also declured his disbelief'in clair
voyance. He had known the accused
twenty years, having, in his capacity
h medical official in Strasburg. unmasked
him as a quack in 1874. He had formed
his opinion of Jost on that occasion, and
could not allow that subsequent occur
rences had forced him to alter it.
did not doubt Jost's responsiblli jr
his actions, and believed that in most
cases in which people supposed they had
been cured by him this opinion of theirs
was due to a psychopathic disturbance
of the Judgment.
The dentist, Dr. von Langsdorff _
Freiburg, in Baden, was hoard as an ex
pert for the defense. With • regard
tho expression "quack,'.’ lie wished to re
mind the court that Vrince Bismarck
once said, In answer io a proposal
Virchow’s with reference to unlicensed
practitioners: "If nature has lent healing
power to a man, it shall not be taken
from him by the police." This expert,
a man thoroughly imbued with spiritual
istic views,--gave it ns his opinion that
among the medical men licensed by the
state, healing power was not proportion
ate to scientific knowledge, and expatiated
in spite of tho frequent interruptions of
the president of the court’, on matters
rather remotely connected with the real
subject of the trial—spiritism among the
ancient Egyptians, things he had
America, etc. On the ground of his ob
servation of Jost on a single occasion
he had- arrived at the conclusion that
simulation was utterly out of the ques
tion In his case.
After all the testimony was In, elabor
ate speeches and arguments were made
by the counsel, and the court adjourned
the case for a week for consideration
At the end of that time it announced its
decision, holding Jost guilty of fraud and
imposng upon him a sentence of sixteen
* ' METALS AND MUSCLES.
Rest Restores Strength.
Iar fatigue corresponds very
to the fatigue of metals. Fa
metals—a phrase Which has came Into
use only in recent years—describes a
condition of the material not previ
ously understood. It expresses the
strained of Ahe relationship to each
other of the molecules of iwhich the
metal is constituted, a meaning which
the term -weariness, or literally worn
ness,-does not convey. Engineers are
familiar with the fact that parts of
machinery break down after having
worked satisfactorily, and apparently
with safety, for months, or, It may
be, for many years. The cause of such
breakage, once a mystery, is now
known to.be fatigue. This principle
is Illustrated in the breaking of a piece
of wire. It is bent backward and for
ward until ruptures take place—fro'm
fatigue. If, however, metals are stained
bdyond the elastic limit, but not bro
ken, ’and if the straining l^not con
tinued, the material will mover its
elasticity by rest alone.” Professor W
B. Kennedy has clearly demonstrated
this recuperative property of metals.
Bars of steel and iron, strained in a
testing machine beyond the elastic lim
it, *md so weakened thereby that if
they were tested again the following
day they would take permanent set at
one-third of less of .their former load,
would, if allowed to rest for about two
years, be found not only to have re
covered their original elastic limit of
strength, but to have exceeded It, and
to have become stronger than before
in t*ie direction in which they had been
pulled. Tf the -material 'Of rest was
materially shortened, .the* restoration
of strength was found to be corres
pondingly incomplete. This theory of
fatigue holds good in regard 'to musc
les as well as materials. Professor
Michael Foster pointed out last year
that the muscles in the leg of a frog
severed from the body, and. caused un
der electrical stimulus to exert them-
selves In work until thoroughly
wearied, anil no longer able ifco respond
to the electrical excitation, will, with
rest alone, recover their elasticity, and
be able to resume work as before.
Professor Foster demonstrated -that the
weariness was In the muscle bnd not
iti 'the nerve. The. worn tissue could
not, of course, be restored, and It is
clear that the fatigue which we expe
rience in our own bodies -must be large
ly fatigue In the technical sense in ad
dition to weariness proper, or worn
ness. Rest is, therefore, required, not
only to-enable wasted tissue to be re
stored by fresh material from the
blood, and by carrying away of waste
material, but also to afford opportuni
ties for the strained molecules to re
cover a state of repose.

If now. we estimate the annual pro

wo shall find that It falls far short of
10,000.000 copies. Even allowing a twen
ty-fold circulation of the average books
over the average paper of magazine—
certainly far out of proportion to the
fact—it appears that books db not con

actually constitute not over 3 per cent.
