M—HiWiUMBi warn THE MACON TELEGRAPH: THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 5, 1894 A HYPNOTIST IN PRISON He Used His Occult Science as a Reme dial Agent for Various Kinds of Diseases, 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 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 months' imprisonment. * ' 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 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.

Herfrty Appetite for and Supply of ’ • Newspaper Literature^ Journal of American Politics. There are printed in this country up ward of 20.000 different paper* and mag azines. and in nil the rest of the world besides only 28,000. England has about 7,600, Canada and Australia less than 1,000, Germany some 0,000 and France bu*t 4,,300. The United States, then, have more than two-flfths of all printed and, when we consider the aggregate circulation, mere than one-half. Tills aggregate circulation reaches such an enhrmoua total that the figures are dif ficult of comprehension. The combined periodical issue of this country'last year amounted to over four thousand mill ion, nr in American notation, 4,000,000,- 000 copies—an average of 300 copies of some periodical for each of the 13,000,000 families which make up cur popula tion. If now. we estimate the annual pro duction of books, papers and otherwise, 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 stitute above 6 per cent, of the general reading of the country. They probably actually constitute not over 3 per cent. If we seek the formulatlve Influences cf literature upon the American life, we shall And them In our daily and weekly newspapers.
