Wkrra Rest the Nlaetr-Mlle
Prom thirty-six beds ma? be heard thla
morning, September 20, sounds of labored
breathing produced by the deep sleep and
well earned rest of thirty-six colonels, lieu
tenant colonels, and majors who on
Thursday morning started on their annual
90-mlle horaamanshlp teat, and Saturday
afternoon at exactly 1:29 o'clock, Juat one
minute ahead of the schedule, returned to
Fort Myer, Washington. That all who pro
reused absence of stiff joints and sora spots
are as blytha and gay as they would
want to appear may well be doubted. That
all this morning (ire keeping their promises
to aching limbs to sleep lata In beds
worthy of tha name may easily be believed.
The ride Saturday from the oheery little,
ramp at Fairfax court house, where the
officers, under the personal command of
Major General Frederick P. Grant, stopped
for two nights, was the most severe of the
three-days' teat' Because warmer weather
was looked for, and to finish aa soon after
noon as possible, the start was begun at
6 o'clock sharp. Lack of rain had made
the roads dustier than usual, and toward
midday horses and men both began to
shuw signs of tha Inoreaaed heat.
Despite frequent halts, a longer time
than usual for dismounting and a light
luncheon of sandwiches and cold tea at 11
o'clock the men trotted through tthe single
street of Rosslyn, Va., about 1:10 o'clock,
and seven and a half hours after the start
drew rein befora the post hospital.
Kach ilder heaved a sigh of relief, and
In some Instances, of misery, as he threw
his bridle to the orderly; painfully extri
cated his cramped legs from tha stirrups
and dropped to the ground.
An Immediate medical examination was
made of every officer, and s far as could
be learned, all were In excellent physical
condition. Major Potter, who had a slight
attack of nausea during the second day's
Vide, but finished, despite his Illness, was
as active as any of his comrades this af
ternoon, with the exception perhaps, of
Colonel Heath, ordnance department, who,
although a years of age, and within nine
months of retirement, was In better spirits
than any on.
As Colonel Heath walked to the station
with Colonel Whistler, coast artillery, the
. latter, who elalms tha championship for
the largest number of bruises and sore
Joints accused his companion of feigning
good ' condition.
"Why, that was a mere pleasure ride,"
airily answered Colonel Heath.
"I've rpinv times ridden tm-tca the dis
tance we came today merely to see my
fwat girl. It's too bad you youngsters of
mere 60 and 60 can't take a short Jog like
this without feeling It so much." Wash
CRUISER IN GREAT PERIL
nigh Seas Mar Ponnd Yankee to
Pieces t'pon Spindle
NEWPORT, R. I.. Sept. 26,-The work of
extricating the United States cruiser Yan
kee from Its position on Spindle Rock,
where It struck during a fog on Wednes
day, was centered today In the construc
tion of a wooden cofferdam about the ves
sel. It Is planned by this means to free
the vessel from surrounding water, follow
ing which the work of assisting the cruiser
from the rock will be begun) It Is believed
that It will take almost a week to erect the
dam, and It may be a week more before
the vessel Is' finally freed.
Should the seas continue smooth during
that time It Is anticipated that the work
will progress without serious danger to the
cruiser, but heavy seas are likely to pound
It upon the rocks and force its abandonment
defending the bridge from would-be dyna
miters. Police Captain Collins stated that
the bridge company had had labor troubles.
H. II. Wagner, secretary and treasurer
of the company, declared that his concern
had! been harassed by dynamiters for two
years. A few months ago, he said, a
derrick belonging to the company was de
stroyed by dynamite at Clinton, la.

Oklahoma Bank Case.
WASHINGTON. Sept. 25 -The failure of
the' National Bank of Colgate, Okl.,
evoked much Interest among the. cabinet
officials today In view of William J.
Bryan's reference to that Institution as an
evktence of the desirability of a law guar

the matter would come before the cabinet
meeting. t Referring to the failure today.
Secretary Straus of the Department of
Commerce and Labor, said:
"It Is well for the public to know what
the facts are concerning thlB bank. The
president of the bank in question (the In

bank something over $6,000 and the cashier
owed about $4,000, according to the South

was perfectly solid. Its cash and sight ex
change was sixty percent of Its deposits.
In view of the fact that the officers were
indebted to the hunk In the amounts stated
at the time the bank was permitted to qual
ify under the guaranty law. It is hard to
understand why the bank was closed for
an offense committed prior to the time It
was permitted to operate under the new
guaranty law. A telegram elated September

Some of the trance-like conditions Into
which -Individuals fall nnd lie for days or
weeks have been studied and have been
found to be frauds. The "subjects" are
eutrepltlously supplied with food and drink
by their attendants or family. The same
Is true of the alleged power ,posessed by
Hindoo fakers and escetrlcs of all ages, of
going Into states of trame to be burled
alive and dug up again and revived afier
severSI months have elapsed. In one In -
tance on record an Individual of this class
allowed himself to be burled alive and his
grave watched by a guard of English sol
diers, and was dug up at the end of the
time, exceedingly dead. In another, the
English officer In charge became .alarmed
on the third day, and had the faker .'resur

reed or bamboo at one comer of the grave

The whole subject is involved In such an
atmosphere of mystery and "fakery" that
It is Impossible to attach serious weight to
the claims made.
Most of the claims, both occidental and
oriental, to the power of existing for In-

seem to rest simply upon the well-known
power possessed by many weak-minded in
dividuals, of throwing themselves by auto
suggestion Into a hypnotic sleep. In thla
condition, or awake, life can, of course,
be easily supported for many days, or even
weeks, without food, as has been often il
lustrated by the feats of professional
fasters who easily reach forty nnd even
sixty days. It is, however, a significant
fact that none of these "sleep" can be
carried on in a hospital where the patient
is under observation of competent and
unsympathetic nurses. For, although food
can be done without, water cannot, and
these sleepers will Invariably be found
resorting to the water bottle and respond
ing to the calls of nature within twenty
foun hours. In their own homes, where
they tun help themselves surreptitiously to
the water on the washstund, they may keep
up the faree for weeks without detection.

often food, and are usually rases of hys
