A BODY SNATCHING ADVENTURE.
"You can bet thnt grave robbing
is nothing iir-w even among students
in this city," paid a young phyhicinn
yesterday, in conversation villi a
1'rcns reporter. "I graduated in this
city, you know, and if you'd like to
hear it 1 can tell you a very amusing
adventure of a couple of my fellow
.students. Of eomse I ennnot men
tion any names, but 1 can abstnc
you that the story is strictly true.
A body snatching expedition in those
days was regaided as a big 'blow
out,' but only the bolder and more
reckless spirits would take part in it.
One night a couple of my cliuinH
started off for a 'stiff' (as they used
to call a coipsc in the dissecting
room) and selected an out-of-town
cemetery as the scene of their
operations. It was eleven o'clock
when they secured the body, and as
cold and cheerless a night as you
ever saw. They wrapped the corpse
up in an overcoat, and, to aveit
suspicion, propped him up on the
scat of their oimhi wagon, so that he
looked as if he were one of the
company. Then they drove into
town. As 1 said, it was a stiugingly
cold night, and, as soon as they
reached a tavern they resolved to
enter it to warm up, both outwaidly
and inwardly. They left the wagon
standing on the road, with the
propped-up body in the center of the
"An inkling of their errand had
been obtained by others of their
class, and when they pulled up at
the tavern seveial of the students
tv ere on hand, but did not show
themselves. The grave robbers wann
ed themselves after a while, and
icturncd to their wagon. But in
the meantime the other students had
removed the corpse from the wagon
and substituted in its scat one of
their own number. This the robbcis
had no suspicion of, and taking their
scats, one on each side of the corpse,
they drove off. In the jolting of the
wagon it happened that the hand of
one of the students came in contact
with that of the corpse. 'Hy
Jove! Smith, it's warm! he ex
claimed. 'Nonsense,' said Smith,
and then he touched what should
have been a cold and clammy hand.
'My God!' he exclaimed, 'so it is!'
" 'Yes,' ejaculated the corpse, 'if
you'd been in h I as long as I have
you'd be warm too!'
"The affrighted students stood
not upon the order of their going,
but went at once." Philadelphia
