Tbo Rornarkfibla Case of 8. H. Robl-
son of Oroonvlllo , OUlo.
Cinclnna I Inquirer ,
Ono of the most romnrknblo cnsoa
over known to the tnodicnl profoaaion
is Hint of S. II , Ho bison of Groou-
Mile , Ohio , who , since November last ,
naa changed in color until ho is as
darkaa ft natiro of Africa. The pecu
liar and very rare disease known na
mnlanosls , with which Robiaon is
ntllictud , has brought him into promi
nence , so that physicians are going
from nil parts of the country to see
him , lu null , the Now York museum
man , has made him an offer , which
his declining health will not permit
him to accept. A dispatch from
Greenville in the Enquirer n few days
ngo cnvo only a brief account of this
wonderful caao ,
Among the numerous physicians of
prominence to ivo attention to the
case is Dr. W. 11. Falls of this city ,
who returned from Greenville yester
day , and was seen in the evening by
an Enquirer reporter.
"It is certainly one of the most sin
gular and romatkablocases on record , "
said the doctor , when first approached.
"Can you give the Enquirer a brief
description of the case1' ? asked the re
"Certainly ; but I intend to write n
full history of it forthoMouic.il'.Iour-
Dr. Palls , after showing the report
er a number of photogr.ipha of the
unttent taken recently , proceeded to
describe the case from the beginning.
S. 11 llobison was born in ( reenvillo ,
August 81 , 18ii 1 , of white patents , be
ing the eldest soil of 11. Luther and
Liviim llobison , Ho is , na was his
father , a carpenter by trade , lie is
married and has one young child.
Last November the sight of his loft eye
became impaired , and about the 1st of
March his right eye became entirely
blind. On the 10th of March ho c.tmo
to Cincinnati to bo treated by
Drs. Williams and Ayres. About
that time small lumps about the
size of a millet seed began to de
velop on vaiioua parta of hia body ,
and lie mentioned hia condition to the
physicians , In April , while in this
city , ho commenced to change in
color , assuming an ashen hue. The
lumpa on his body ( 'row larger and
more numeroua. lie was then at
tended by Dr. Falls , who , after a
careful oxnmination , pronounced his
disc.-m to bo melanosia. This diseaao
is very rare , especially in thia country ,
and Dr. Falls c.ui recall but one other
case , which was in New York in 187C ,
and attended by Dr. L. D. Bulkloy.
Melanesia consists of aiaall tumors or
cancers of a black substance all over
the body. It ia a fatal disease , but
generally does not atl'cct the appearance -
anco of the body like the case in ques
tion. Several cases are reported from
abroad similar to that of Robiaon ,
Ono worthy of special mention came
under the attention of the famous Dr.
Lawrence , of St. Bartholomew's hos
pital , London , in ISO I , Ono of the
lumps on llobiaon was removed by
Drs. Falla and Mussoy and examined
by 1'rof. Echhorz of the Miami Medi
cal college , who found it to bo posi
tively melanoais , or black cancer ,
Robison , who was n fine looking fol
low , with skin and complexion as light
as the whitest man , continued to
change in color , and now ho Is as
black as coal , Drs. Williams and
Ayres Hiiid ho auiTorod from detach
ment of the retina , duo to the deposit
of the black cancora or nodules in
smaller form within the coats
of the oyc , After the case had
been thoroughly studied the physi
cians pronounced llobison hopelessly
blind. Drs. Carson , Clendonin and
others have spent much ttmo with
llobiaon , and like all others , they
pronounce it a most remarkable case.
Returning to hia homo , Robison
continued to grow worse. The
nodulea on his body now number
about soyon hundred , and am about
the size of a bean. The sight of Ins
right eye is entirely gone. Just re
cently every portion of the nun's
body that was red han turned black.
The inside of his lips and tongue are
black. Bis urine is black aa ink , and
what he spits from liia mouth is of the
same color. It was intended to bring
llobison to this city last week to be
exhibited at one of the medical colleges -
logos , but ho became very sick and
had two convulsions , and is
unable to leave his bod.
Yesterday afternoon a party of
doctors wont to see him from Now
Richmond , Indiana. Dr. Falls says
it ia only a matt or of short time before
Ilobison will die. In such case Robl-
son has promised the doctor that ho
may make a post-mortem examination
of his body. Dr , Falls expects to find
the nodules in the brain , liver , spleen ,
kidneys , lungs , and , in fact , nearly all
of the prominent organs as in the few
similar cases , llobison's child is thus
far in an apparently healthy condition.
His father , who died some years ago ,
was uillictod with local cancer on the
face , which , however , did not cause
death , Dr. L. G. Locklidor has charge
of the cuse at Greenville.

Land in Timed
The now twin-screw , doublo-turrot
vessel Dandolo , belonging to the royal
Italian navy , has just completed the
trials of the machinery previous to
joining the rquadron in the Mediter
ranean. Excepting the omission of
the internal tornodo dock , he resem
bles the sister ship Duilio in her gen
eral arrangement , but uho has consid
erably surpassed her in speed. The
Dandolo was built at the Royal Naval
Arsenal at Spozla , under the supervi
sion of Director liorghi , at whoso
suggestion the whole of the bow plat
ing ia worked flush , Instead of the
plates overlapping as usual. The
length of the vessel is 837ft. Sin , ,
the breadth 02 ft. ii& in , ; the mean
draught at the trials with arniamcnt
on board was 28 ft. 0 in. * giv
ing a total displacement of
11,225 Ions. The battery is
heavily armored , and is placed
in the middle of the vessel ; the two
turrets rise above the weather deck ,
and are placed diagnonally in the bat
tery , so aa to enable all four guns to
ho fired fore and aft , The armor of
the turrets in impenetrable to all ex
cept the heaviest modern artillery.
Each turret contains two 100-ton
Armstrong guns mndo at Klsrvick ,
having n bore 17 72 inches , thrawins
n shot 2,018 pounds , with A maximuni
of oil pounds of powder , the ordi
nary chnrgo being 353 pounds. The
ttirrols and guna nro moved and
worked by ft complete system of hy
draulic gear made at Elawick , The
loading is also done by _ the same
means , the rnmmoii being below
the weather deck and arranged to en
ter the gun when the muzzles are de
pressed for the purpose. Hotweou
the turrofa iu situated the maat , which
really assumes the function of a look
out tower , aathoro are no snila.
The vessel is fitted with Forrester's
steam steering gear , as well m a very
powerful hand-steering gear , and has
a beautiful self-acting arrangement ,
designed and fitted by tholtah.in con
structors for checking and holding
the tiller ; in case of the chains break
ing , the tiller would lock Itself amid
ships and romixin at rest till the new
chain was recioVcd.
The D.mdolo carries four largo
stoniu launches and night other InmtR ,
all hung upon hinged davits winch are
worked from the steam capstan , and
which will hoist them right on Inard.
The D.indolo ia propelled by twin
rcrows worked by two independent
luirs of engines , which wore contract
ed to indicate a maximum power uf " , -
500 horses. Those engines , together
with the pumping and blowing engines ,
wore cotiatruatod by Messrs. Mnuds-
lay , Sons & Field , of London. Tlu > y
are the first compound engines whicli
were ordered for the Royal Italian
Marine , though they have been
awaiting the completion of the ship
at Spizia since 1S70lio \ \ they
wore brought out in the royal trans
port Europa , E.ich sot of o'lginca is
placed in a separate water-tight com
partment , ono at uncli side of the
vessel ; instead of buing aide by side
they are situated ono in advance oi
the other , the alternate space being
occupied by the magazines , which are
placed immediately below the turret -
ret . Each p.tir of engines has one
high pressure cylinder , sixty-four
inches in diameter , and one low
pressure , 120 inches in diameter , with
n stroke of four feet. Steam of sixty-
five pounds pressure is supplied by
eight large oval and double-ended
hoilorn , having 32 furnaces in all.
Four boilers are placed forward of the
engines , and the other four lift ; but
oauh pair of boilers is cjutainod in n
aeperate water-tight compartment.
The chimneys , which uro ample in
size and height , uro built of oiio-inch
plate from the main deck to the Hying
deck above the turrets , so as to enable
them to withstand the grc.it shock
produced by the discharge of theguns.
A very perfect system of fans and
ventilating pipes has been carried out ,
so that the whole of the cabins and
oven the engine room are kept perfect-
Kwcot mid fr sh. There is also an
other arrangement for Ventilation
very closely resembling in principle
the furnace system of vontihtion m n
On the 25th of May the Dandolo
proceeded to sea for her first ollicial
trial , under the command of Com-
mandante E. Acton , who \\as accom
panied by Admirals Martin Franklin
and Caimi. The run to Genoa and
back was accomplished without stop
ping in G hours and 28 minutes , with
a moan indicated horse power of
nearly 7,200 , and a maximum of
7-Ho hoisoa , and the speed obtained
waa 151 knots , with a consumption of
511 tons of coal. The mam ob
ject of the run was to ascot-
tain the consumption of fuel
on a prolonged full power run ,
On the 29th day of May , the
vessel was taken on the measured
knot Wai , when a speed of 15 55
knots was obtained with 8,050 ! iorsu
power , the circle turning proved that
the vcsael ansuora her helm admira
bly ; and the circles were remarkable
for their small diameter. On the Gth
of June the final trial took place ; the
vcBsol attained on the measured knot
at full power practically the same
apcou as before , with 8,150 indicated
horse as the moan power and a maxi
mum of 8,250 liorae. A trial waa then
made for n considerable time with
half boilers , steam being easily
maintained to give > 1,420 horse powe
with an average speed rather more than
111 knotti. No upoed blast waa used
on any of the trials , The engines
worked with perfect regularity
throughout , giving a maximum num
ber of revolutions of 7-1 per minute ,
the pitch of the fccrow being 23 feet 0
inches. At the wild of the day the
engines wore worked with the com
mon ] 't injection tor nearly two
liourH. The VCHHO ! then returned to
port. , ° ho is commissioned by Com-

Niuuoa of the Stivtou.
DM Molnoti Special'to the Olobo-Domocrat ,
The Globe-Democrat of the 5th con
tains an article on the names of the
states , in which is given the derivation
and moaning of the word "Iowa" as
"Ah-hoO'OO-ba , " meaning "aloopora. "
The writer has evidently little ac
quaintance with Indian tribes of Iowa ,
of their traditions. It is settled and
well understood that the state was
named from the river Iowa , and that
the river derived its name from the
Indian tribe of that name. The In
dian word was Kiowa , and eo it is
printed an thu early inapt ) of the Ter
ritory. There nro two traditions 're
specting this tribo. Ono cornea from
the Oniahan , who called them the
" " from the fact that
"Gray-snows , they
wont elf from the parent tribe in the
far north or Superior country during
a enow-storm , and the ( mow fulling
and mingling with thu sand , uavo it a
gray appearance , hence the term
1'gray-snows , " or those who wont oil'
in the gray snow. The Indian word
was " 1'y-ho-ja , " which wan corrupted
by traders to " 1'y-ho ia , " and then
Anglicized to Iowa. This tradition ia
somewhat mythical and questionable.
Another tradition , and the proba
bly correct onu , is that they came from
the upper lake region. They wore
originally called the I'au-hoo-choes.
Nearly two hundred years ago a large
body of the tribe started oil' southwestward -
westward with their chief , Mau-hau-
gaw. They crossed the Mississippi
river , moved southward , and Buttled
on the west bank of the Kiown river.
They established vlllago , which they
named Ne-o-ho-noo. They became
prosperous , which excited the jeal
ousy of the marauding Sioux on the
north. They wore strong and power
ful. To destroy their head , the Sioux ,
with their traditional deceit and
treachery , sent a deputation to Mnu-
hau gaw to invite him to jiin with the
Sioux in a dog feast. They presented
him with a pipe of peace , and smoked
it with him as an earnest of their
good faith. After a long consultation
and earnest entreaty M.tu-hau-gavr
accepted. Ho paid the penalty of hia
trust by assassination , nn act
ol triMCliory which waa never
forgiron or forgotten. Mau-hau-
gnw was succeeded na chief by
Ma-lms-ka , or White Cloud , a direct
descendant. lie wai n noted warrior ,
nnd , tradition s.iy.i , led his bravesauc-
cessfully through eighteen Luttlea with
the Sioux , llo was never beaten. Hut
lie , too , was betrayed and assassinated.
Ho was succeeded by hia son , Ma-linn-
ka , from whom the county of Mahaskix
derived ita name. Continuous wars
had reduced the tribn largely in mini-
tun-H , so that in 1824 , when the old
Fox chief , lllack Hawk , in hia tri-
umphnl inarch westward , c.imo upon
theiii , they wore completely destroyed
ns n tribe and Ik'd across the Missouri ,
or were scattered over the territory.
And subsequently , when thu Foxoa ,
under Illnck Hawk , nnd Sucj were do-
fcated nnd conquered by the white ? ,
[ hey formed n part of tlio eonfciU'rn-
kiin of the remnants of the conquered
tribop , in the territory of which were
Foxes , Snca , 1'ottawatomiea ami ICto-
w.\s. This confederated body was
called Musquakie , n nniall remnant of
whom still exist in Truuii county.
1 have it on the authority of a man
who had much to do with the Fox and
Sao Indians who waa famiihr with
their traditions , who was personally
acquainted with Poweshiek , Wnpollo ,
Ivencanw , Keokuk , Mahaskn and
other prominent chiefs , nnd who
often sought out the trarlitiona of thu
tribea , that the word "Kiowa" always
meant "crossing over , " whether used
by Fox , Sac , or Pottuwattamlos. This
meaning is in consonance with later
history. The Musqunkiuo 13-day use
the same word in the nome significa
tion. So when ttio oll'shoo' ' , uf the
I'an-ho-chees crossed over the river
they called the river Kiowa , or the
river they crossed over. Tribes east
ward called them Ki < ) wns , or the
Indiana who crossed the river. So
Black Hawk , when ho in his march
pnterod the territory west of the Miss
issippi , called it Kunva , or where he
crossed over. When the earliest white
people CMHO to the territory , in advance -
vance of settlements , at the trading
posts , when the bands of the
several chiefs came in , nnd were naked
where they came from , thu reply
would bo , "Kiowu Cticdnqua , ' or
across Skunk Rivor. Iviown meanini ;
over or acrosn , and Chicnqua , Skunk
or Stinking Uiver , so called from wild
onions found in profusion along ita
banks. Perhaps they would say "No-
kiowu , meaning their ponies had run
away across the dark river. No-ko-
ma , pony-puk-a-choo run away , koo-
oiui < jua , dark , inky , sopo , river , nnd
kiowu , over. In whatever connection
they used the word "kiowu" it signi
fied going over , or the act of crossing.
It had no other meaning , nnd every
tribe in lown so used it. All attempts
to idealize it , or grow roithoticul over
it , nro nonsensical. There is no poetry
in it. As every ono familiar with
Indian history knows , their vocabu
lary wna formed from ovnnts. Words
took rise from circumstances , and one
word frequently was used to express
many things , or waa interpreted to
gether witli aomo sign , gesture or in
cident ( o vary ita signification. From
Mashaskn I down to thia day Kiowa
has signified crossing over , and that
antedates Black Hawk's expedition
across the Mississippi. It nmy bo
well hero to remark that the Indiana ,
from thu mnith to the north , called
the Dos Moines river "Kposuu-qau
Sopo , ' or dark , inky , rolling river ,
from the black color of the water in
the spring nnd fall , the result of wak
ings of the burned out prairiea along
Thosiimo writer also gives the deri
vation of Mississippi , and concludes it
moana "tho great or "whole river , "
because ninny rivcra unite to lorm it.
I can not agree with him. There is no
question nt nil that it was named by
tlu ) Indians before n white man snw
it. Thu first men to discover it were
Frenchmen , and they , nsvo to-day ,
endeavored .to render the Indian
sounds into their own language , llonco
wo have a dill'orent orthography of the
same expression by 'different French
authors and explorers of thoMisuia-
The upporpart of the river was called -
ed by all tribes Po-ho-tomoak , sopo ,
or whirling water. The Hanks used
the tormsopc ; the Oliippowus , "aopo , "
or in Same "kitclugreat , sopo ,
river ; in Chippewn , kit-elm , great ,
sebe , river.
Following the Indian words wo find
thu following ;
Indian , /'nylieh ,
MiH-'h-quo , Medicineherbs. .
Mli-sli-ko-wa-kock , 1'IeUt of luxuriant
MU-kti-tak. Meadow ,
This last word ia derived from miss ,
prairie , and Shu-tak , fire , literally ,
moaning grass fire , an idea apparent
to all conversant with burning prai
ries. The meadows or broad gross
lands along the river were called Mis-
ke-tuk , and the Indians who occupied
the adjoining lands on either sldo
were called "Mis-nho-tpn , " or
"Moanw Indians. " The river was
called "Miu-siB-wa-keok" Hepo , or
literally , Meadow river , or river of
Meadows , or Grass.
Now what do wo find from the
French rule ? Mnrquotto (1C73) ( ) ,
Missiaaipy ; Claude Dablon (1 ( 71) ) ,
Missisaipo ; Francis LuMorciuu (1000) ( ) ,
Meesipi ; Ilonnepin (1080) ( ) , Meuhaspi ;

In oich there is an evident effort to
enunciate the articulate sounds of the
Indian speech. I Imvo given thu

It is evident tlio word doea not sig
nify great , for every tribe along the
river and around the lakes had a dif

that the word means river or meadows.
