Effects of Lightning Stroke. After exhibiting to his students > young woman who liad been struck bj lightning, Prof. Nolhnagel, of Vienna, remarked that formerly it was kuowc that the burns made by lightning hac a zig-zag course, aud that tbe furthei con.-.equencos might be paralysis «i death. Experiments upon rabbits with the e.ecM-ic spark of a. Leyden jar had given the lecturer new light upon the subject during ihe last ten years.

About two years after my graduation In tbeOollege of Medicine, while yet a young mau of ardent feelings and sym pathies, I was called through special iuflueuce to a professorship iu a We it em college with permission te attend to a few speck! cases outside.

He .broke his Jeg once and I wai called on to officiate. I was Introduced to his comfortable home and to his wife, a quiet, commonplace, toothless old. woman, and to his step-gr...
