An Anatomical Mystery.
The pont-martein held upon tne body of
Frank Haven , the man who fell dead from
heart disease in the alloy in ilio rear of the
Biscmaii block on Tuesday , was not con
cluded until after midnight. All day yester
day the remains woru visited by crowds of
curious people , among them every physician
in the city and many from Omaha and out
side towns. Yesterday forenoon the
strangely malformed and misplaced internal
organs were photographed. Two views
were taken , besides several pen and pencil
sketches made by special ai lists employed by
physicians. All the doctors who examined
the body do not hesitate to declare that in
the whole range of anatomical study and in
all the human freaks it has revealed , tbero
never has boon an instance that puralollod
this strangely formed individual. The ex
ternal appearance of the body was re mark u-
bio. The flngnr and too noils were not oval ,
but nearly perfectly round and more than
twice the normal size. When the man was in
health the disturbed circulation often made
him an object of interest on the streets. His
complexion would often bo a very deep pur
ple or a bright bluo. THb bones of the
sternum wore bulged out. The largest pro
tuberance was on the right side of the mid-
mu line , und about three inches below the
shoulder. It was as largo nt u good-sized
bowl , and in the cavity it formed the heart
laid. This , like every other Internal organ ,
was reversed from the normal position and
turned upside down. The lungs we're not
more than two-thirds the natural size , they
being almost entirely exhausted from tubor-
culur trouble , und wjro very much diluted
and death 'had resulted from a rupture of
the right ventricle. The stomach was just
reversed and was located on the right side
ana overlapping the lungs. The liver an d
spleen were both reversed und on the loft.
Hoth were abnormally developed. Nature
followed the same wrong-ond-to tendency
when slio made tbo abdominal viscera and
these organs were completely reversed.
The brain was not examined , but it Is prob
able the saino romarKilbla tendency was fol
lowed in the development of that organ.
Tno development of nil the organs was
nearly normal , und all would have dis
charged their proper functions the full al
lotment of years ol mankind If they had not
been weakened by disease.
It Is not at all romurkublo that with all of
these reversals of nuturo's customs the man
should have boon decidedly loft handed in

On Tlio Klnotrlo Hail.
The immouso crowd that visited Omaha
yesterday morning to see the parade
of tbo traveling men taxed tbo motor
line to its utmost capacity. Extra cars were
added to the regular trains , but that would
not sufllco and additional trains were put on.
All were crowded and the isles , platforms
and stous would not furnish the requisite
standing room , There was not sufllciont
power to handle 'all the trains ,
with their heavy loads , and
considerable difficulty was experienced in
petting up the grade to the bridgo. Ono
train fulled to get up , blowing out a fuse ,
after which the currant molted the connec
tions and set lire to the wood work of the
motor car. It was quickly extinguished , but
the motor was "dead , " und quite u "layout"
resulted , several trains being blocked there
for nearly half an hour , when everything
was again straightened out , after which there
was no further trouble , us the rush was
about over. .
It has been pretty clearly demonstrated
several times that thirty horsonowoi motors
would be much moro effective than the
twenty horsepower motors now in use , as
tbo bridge grades und the unusually heavy
grade , on Madison street liavo frequently
proven serious obstacles to a heavily loaded
train. A few heavier motors would coma In
vury good play , und it is not unlikely that
the company will sesurosorao of the larger
machines in their next order ,
