A well-deserved recognition of the services rendered by Miss .Cox to the Anglican Church at Rakaia, during the past two years in the capacity of organist, was made after choir practice on Ascension Day. It consisted of a purse of five sovereigns made; up of a number of small contributions by members of the congregation and others, The Curate, Rev Mr Collins, in making the presentation, addressed a fow kindly remarks to the recipient, to which, on the lady's behalf, Mr W. B. Dixon responded. Sixty prominent physicians and dental surgeons conducted some very remarkable I hypnotic experiments in Berlin in the case of ! a girl whose tonsils were removed by an absolutely p unless operation during a state of coma. The patient obeyed the slightest suggestions of the hypnotiser. Another patient was hypnotised by a letter (in the abbencc of the operator) written to a surgeon named Turner, and worded thus :" Go to sleep by order of Dr Bramwell. Obey Mr Turner's commands." Dr Bramwell also hypnotised auothcr patient by a note sent by the hands of his daughter, and still another by a message sent by telegraph. These / statements are vouched for by the London I "Lancet."
