"Women haters? Plenty of them!"
A Journal reijorter had met a well
known phy sician in an uptown cafe and
interrupted a conversation that the doc
tor was holding with a friend over a
cigar anil a bottle of claret. lie spoke
easily and with confidence that he knew
To hate a woman, especially one of
the d:;inty, loving kind, upon whose
glance men hang enthralled, or for
whose kindly glances nu n would sacri
fice their souls, seemed incredible.
Perish the thought! And yet the visi
tor's mind brought into remembrance
cases in which men had sworn they
hated women, only to be captured and
put in bondage by a pair of bright eyes.
The physician struck a fresh match
and watched the smoke from his cigar
curl lazily upward as he related a few
strange incidents that had come under
his observation professionally.
THE STOItY TOLD BY IIOL1IES.
"One case that I recall," said the doc
tor, "was that of a (Jerinan, a member
of all the musical societies, who late in
life acquired and betrayed an intense
hatred of nil women. lie had been hap
pily married, and no one suspected him
of this new feeling that began to creep
over him and destroy the love he had felt
for his will and the respect for his
"lie struggled against it and fought it,
but it- was "ou.e. and the disease, if such
it may be called. Ijegan to show itself to
liis family soil friends, and an instant
estrangement from his wife was the re
mit, lie ran away from his home and
was finally returned hopelessly insane.
"Now,"' concluded the doctcr. "there
was a man who was a woman hater,
only he did not know it because he was
insane. The physicians had diagnosed
hL-i case aright."
The conversation turned then on a case
that had loen mentioned by Oliver Wen
dell Holmes in his book. A very young
boy had been left in charge of a nurse,
and she had suddenly gone insane. In
her maniacal frenzy she tried to strangle
her innocent charge, and only desisted
when she thought she had succeeded in
her object. Then she killed herself with
a razor, which left her a most shocking
sight. The loy revived, and the first
thing his eyes fell upon was the corpse.
From that day throughout his child
hood and up to the day of his death the
eight of a woman was enough to throw
jJan into convulsions. His nurses were
jnen, and his family decided it best to
seclude him. No woman ever entered
3iia apartments, but all the work of tak
ing car of him devolved upon.men. He
died in those rooms.

know of one nearly as remarkable," and
he went on to relate the following:
"In the spring of 81 I was called in by
a prominent banker to attend to his son,
who had suddenly become afflicted with
a strange state of mind, which proved to
be a hatred of women. This his family
could not understand, as ho had always
been a leader in social events and fond
of ladies society.

tion very much run down, and inadekini

habit. lie also confessed to mo an ad
venture that had happened to him. but
which I will not repeat, as it is too long,
in which he had been scared nearly out
of IiLj wits by a woman.
"It was easy enough for me to see that
unless the impression caught and retained
by hi mind in its enfeebled state could
bo removed, ho would remain a woman
hater all his life."
"Vas it ever removed, doctor," asked
one of the listeners.
"Never," was the answer, and tho
party relapsed into silence for a moment.
THEY ANNOYED HIM.
A diversion was caused by tho waiter's
removal of an empty bottle and tho sub
stitution of a fresh one, and tho conver
sation was resumed.
"Tell us another, doctor," insinuated
the newspaper man.
"I could tell you several more, but
would have to do so briefly, as a patient
is waiting for me," he responded. "I
recollect a gentleman who stood very
high in all affairs connected with educa
tion in New York. lie, too, was a wo
man hater. As his opinion on school
affairs was considered valuable, many
teachers, especially ladies, used to run to
him for advice, but as he was deeply en
gaged in study, their calls were a source
of annoyance to him and irritated him
into tho state of mind that I have men
tioned. "He was a bachelor, but he finally dis
charged all women servants, substitut
ing men. And orders were given that
no woman was to be allowed to set foot
within his doora. He has often told me
lhat women had prevented his reaching
the highest rounds of science and that ha
could never regain the time lost.
"I knew another case where a man
intrusted bis entire fortune to a woman
and she made away with it and made a
woman hater out of him. He woild

"But," concluded the doctor, impress
ively. "1 think that designing mothers
are responsible for many of the woman
haters, as they frequently prevent their
daughters from marrying the men of
their choice, and when a girl deserts the
man the loves and marries another, it is
very apt to do mental injury to the
first." New York Journal.

child passed away full of years, leaving
behind him a gigantic fortune. His three
nephews. Nathaniel, Leopold and Alfred,
sons of Baron Lionel Rothschild, inherit

in cash, lands, house property and se
curities were for the. most part be
queathed to his daughter, the Countess
of Rosebery. The three London Roths
childs of today bear little resemblance,
either in face, form or business habits,
to either their late father or uncle. The
elder, Nathaniel, lately created Lord
Rothschild, is a far seeing man of great
business capacity, and under his gui
dance the great house still maintains its
supremacy in the world of London
finance. He is, however, a man who de

of minor business of a very, profitable

One estimable characteristic of the

"I'm thinking of making a dryer for

Lewiston man, Tuesday. "It will bo a
big business some day. A firm down in

pose is, j-ou know, to press it by hy

bulk, and sell it for fuel after all the

the effect of moisture. The intense
strain created by burning would burst

economical, unique and effective. They
make a thick paste of the adobe soil and
water, and, having wound the hair
closely around their heads, they smear it
from brow to occiput with sticky gray
mud and let it dry. When thoroughly

therefrom clean, smooth and glossy as
