Wanted to Buy a Human Ear

terrible m;htin.iri', in w hich I was
strolling around with only one ear to

"What are you talking about?"
said the reporter, who had just drift
Then Dr. Moss explained. He had
been in New York for seven weeks
taking a giefidl course in medicine
at the New York Post -Graduate Med
ical Sol joI and doing special work
at Bcllevue II- spital. He became in
terested in what ho read about the
unknown and weatthy miner who
had hot his riht ear and who was
offering $5,0(10 to any man who
would sell him an ear, w hich would
be'transiiosed to replace the n-.emher
that was lost, the newspaers had
a good deal to say stUnit the matter,
and the fact that the man who want
ed the new ear hail refused to dis
close his identity added to the nivs-
tory and interest in the matter.
One day, w hen Dr. Moss was pass
mg the ollice of Dr. A. L Nelden, the
physician who was endeavoring to
buy tne ear, lie yieliletl to curiosity
and sought ailnuttance to the ottice.
He rang, and a servant apiieared and
asked for Ins card. Dr. Jinn hur
riedly explained that he was one of
the applicants who wished to sell his
ear, and was admitted into an ante
chamber. Here he found alxmt lift v
people, men and women ; most of
them seemingly oor, but some being
well dressed and pnwiieroiiS'lonking
All, of course, were volunteering to
sell a right ear for the ?5,000.
Dr. Moss sat down by a pretty girl
w ho didn't seem at all happy. He
engaged her in conversation, and fin
ally asked lier what sh meant by
coming to the place.
"Why, to sell myear."she replied.
i am engaged to a man in the om
country, who is a baker, and recently
he failed in business. This means
the indefinite HWtponoment of our
wedding. I am only a working girl
here. If lean sell my ear for $5,000,
1 shall get enough money to start my
lover in business again, and we can
be married. No ; 1 am sure he will
not mind my being without an ear:
and I have thick hair, as you see, and
can easily arrange it to hide the loss."
In the crowd of wailing folk, Dr.
Moss noted all classes of people, and
was particularly impressed by the
presence of well groomed, good look
ing fellows, who seemed healthy and
capable enough to work to good pur
pose. They were a tired-looking lot.
wearied apparently sad; and all
hoping for a chance to go one-eared
Afuir waiting for some time,, Dr.
Moss was shown into a 'irivate rooi,:-,
and there fared Dr. Nuldon, a big,
aggressive sort of a chap.
''What's your name?" hit first asked.
Dr. Moss hadn't thought about a
name. "A. J. McKolway of I An
geles, Cat.," he said, after a second's
Dr. Nc Men felt Dr. Moss' right ear,
measured it, pulled it; grew interest
ed, and then excited. He cried out,
and a young man came from the
next room, lie was a secretary and
stenographer.. "Here ; take down
these answers," said Dr. Nelden,
whose eyes looked jubilation. He
put Dr. Moss through a rigid cross
examination. "You want to sell this here ear?"
"Oh, yes," said Dr. Moss, who was
beginning to weaken.

"And you can imagine my relief,"
ho tuvlared, "wlun I saw in the
ncwsmera that Dr Nelden had
found another man with a suitable
ear. I understand that Ncldt n and
his patient and the subject had to go
over to Philadelphia to have the op

Nelden' plan of tnuisoting the ear
is a complete snores. The fellow
who disxei of his ear is about 40
years old, and is a butcher who has
hard luck and is making the sacrifice

pulled his right ear over until it
rested close to his n.e and tlien let
it flop back against the back of his
money." was the reply. "Insurance
agents do sometimes need money,
you know." -
Dr. Xelden smiled and said, "I
see." He asked Dr. Moss exceeding
ly embarrassing questions almut the
habits of his great-grandfather, and
was vastly entertained when Dr. Moss
recited his c.xierienee with tliechick-
enMx and measles and mumps and
nettlerash. lie tapped Dr. Moss'
teeth, felt his pulse, and was pro
foundly disturta'd over any sugges
tion of occasional dysepsia or indi
gestion. Ity this time Dr. Mss was
perspiring slightly, and wi.-lied he
hail stayed away.
" 'Tis the verv ear," finally de
clared Dr. Xelden, iu a burst of en
thusiasm. "We must have that ear.
In all the lot, have seen only three'
ears that came close to the require
ment, and yours is the best ear I
have vet examined. Ami you are
sure you want to part with it?" he
added, looking fiercely at Dr, Moss.
"tes, indeed, said Dr. .Moss, as be
wondered if the doctor would catch
him if he hopped out the window.
Dr. Nelden unfolded his plans. He
told Dr. Moss that his patient was a
very wealthy miner, who hal his ear
torn off bv a chain while going down
into the mine. He wore his hair long
to cover the disfigurement, but he
wanted to brush it back and be like
ther folks, or he wanted to get mar
riedor, at any rate, he wished
another ear and was willing to pay
lug money for it.
lie explained his promised meth
ods to Dr. Moss, and showed him the
ittle cots and the plaster of paris
comHisition that were to be used in
the oicration. His patient, said lr
Nelden, would be placed in one cot
and the victim though that word
wasn't used would lie close by in
another cot. The two men would be
bound together by a plaster of paris
cast ; both being motionless for ten
davs. Part of the ear would be cut
off and sewed to the" patient's ear with
cat gut This would grow to the
stub of the missing ear, and then
gradually all of the fresh ear would
bo released bv the cutting nrocess
and, by a natural transfusion of lilood,
would be made to adhere to the head
of the wit lent. Cocaine would be Used
to deaden the pauw Of course, the
strain of lying still would lie pretty
bad, but the !,)(K, just think of it!
And Dr. Moss was very nervous
Kvery minute or so Dr. Nelden would
roach over and pull hi ear and rave
over it, and express his delight be
cause he had at length found the ob-
jivt (if his search. He made Dr. Moss
give him his address a wrong num
ber, by the way and made, him
promise t) return to the office the
next morning. Ho reluctantly per
mitted Dr. Muss to leave his office,
declaring over and over again, in ef
fect, that he simply thirsted to chop
off the right ear of the young Char
After this interview Dr. Moss re
mained in New York only a few
days. He admits that he developed
a case of nerves, and that he never
again went within seven blocks of
Dr. Nelden's ollice. He had fanciful,
absurd, ideas, and every time he
passed a dark place at night he would
think how easy it would be for two
or three big, strong men to jump out
and carry him away and rob him of
his beautiful right ear.
He began to have fearful dreams ;
in which he would be forever going
to some place, and making a low
bow, while everybody was pleased to
note his large single ear which had
grown to preposterous dimensions.
He tried to reason about the matter,
but with poor success. He came from
Hall county, in Georgia, and all the
hobgoblins and spooks that had been
dead since his childhood were resur
rected and came to his bed at night,
and danced in a circle around the
stump of his missing ear. If yon
see him tomorrow you will observe
that he is thin and pale. He will
say that he worked a bit ton hard in
New York, but if you press bint for
the truth, he will confess that he has
been suffering from a dreadfid case
of ear-ache. ,

When the father returned at uight
and the child's abseiice liecaine
known a search was begun. That
afternoou a thunderstorm had pre
vailed and coler weather followed.
The white neighbor aided in the
search and the community wasthor
otighly aroused. Thurkday even

pine thicket less than a mile from
her home, lying under a tree. She
said she had Iteeu wandering
around in the woods ever since she

The Supreme Court yesterday
evening dismissed the e(ilioo of
the railroad to re hear its appeal
from the judgment of the lower
court. It will be reiueiiiliered that
ou the appeal the Supreme Court
ufliruied the lower court' jiidguieut
awarding l..iUO damage to Sea
well. Then the Seaboard petition
ed for another hearing of the case,
with the result mentioned. The
opiniou of the court tan written
by Chief Justice Walter Clark, and
Associate Justice II. ti. Conuor
wrote a concurring opiuion. Those
opinions were confiued entirely to
the legal iiucMious ut issue, and
did uol in any way take into cob
sidemtioii the actors in the egg
throwing incident at Shelby that
has iM-come of almost historical in
terest. This eiuls it for all time,
as there is nothing in the euse to
warrant au upieal to the I'uited
Stales Supreme Court.
The facts iu the ease very briefly
were these: Scawell had made a
campaign siieeeh iu Shelby a the
Populist candidate for lieuteuant
governor. After his Hrx-ech he
went to the staliou of the Seaboard
Air Line railroad to take his traiu
out of town. It seems that a crowd
of young men of the town followed
the speaker to the still Ion. They
were liberally supplied with eggs
that had seen better days, and just
a Scawell went to board bis train
they let fly nt him mid succeeded
in pretty thoroughly plastering him
w ith the decayed lieu fruit.
Seawell sued Hie railroad for
damage on the ground that tlx)'
were liable fur nut proteqtiug a
passenger at their station ubout to
itourd one of their traius. Some
nice legal points were involved and
the case was fought hard, every
inch of ground being contested
stubbornly. It has beeu in the
court iu one way and another for
several years. It came out on (he
evidence that the crowd that egged
Seaell came out of the ollice of the
station agent, ami moreover that
that olllcial threw at least one egg
himself and urged on the others to
throw eggs and laughed when the
eggs ex plmled uiou Seawell. These
last things were the main fact he
relied upon to obtain damage.
The opinion of the Supreme
Court is entirely upon the liability
of the railroad company to dam
ages for failure to use all means
possible for the protection of its
