A REMARKABLE PHENOMENON. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 9 January 1912
REMARKABLE PHENOMENON. About six weeks ago a young maa lost the powers of hearing and speak ing as the result of a fright, caused by having trodden on a snake, whilst he was out shooting at Ballarat (says a wire from Melbourne). The shock when lie saw the snake coiling about his feet caused him to have a fit, and he was taken to the hospital for med ical attention. On Friday he suddenly began to talk, but he could not hear anything. Evidently he imagined that his power of speech had returned,.for he asked the police constable if he was talking. By means of writing he was answered in the affirmative, and was delighted at the improvement in his condition. A little later he be came conscious of sounds, and this was followed by a return to his nor mal state both of- hearing and- of speaking.
