"DEAD MAN'S" CURSES. DOCTOR DRIVEN MAD OWING TO Jj LUNATIC'S PRANK. The sudden return to life of a supposed dead body created a panic at the St. Diony- sius lunatic asylum, near Copenhagen. A surgeon was about to remove the internal organs from the dead body of a patient, which was placed on a marble slab, when, saY,5 the Daily Exprcthe "corpse" sat up and hegan to curse him. The surgeon raised an alarm, and a number of nurses hurried into the room. When they saw the "dead man sitting up they fled. Then the "corpse" sprang down from the operating slab, and, rushing out of the room, locked the door on the surgeon. Later, when the surgeon's colleagues came to his rescue, his mind had given way, and he was raving mad. It was discovered that the supposed/ dead man had exchanged his clothing for the wrappings which covered the real body, whose place he proceeded to occupy on the Operating table. He was captured, and had apparently lost all remembrance of what had occurred.
