MONDAY, JAN. 11, 1884.
For genuine real good dowmight fun
, give us a down town fire. There
arc, first, tbe firemen, dnnelng about
like bowling dervishes. Then them
b the crowd that nlways gathers to
-look ou and encourage the fliemen
bv vcllinc enthusiastically nil the
time. In this crowd theie arc cer
tain characters which are never con
gregated together aiiywheie but at n(
tire. There Is, for iustunrc, the man
whe "first seed it." He is usually
about 42 in number, and he always
begins with "1 was a standin' jUt at
the fur comer of the block, when I
sees a heap o' smoke comin' out o' thd
winders of the fust floor. Say 1, hello,
this is a fire. Then I runs down."
&c. Then there is tbe man with
the axe, who batters (low n the door.
, Nothing but smashing the house up
will save it, in his opinion. He
knows all about it. You can't tell
him anything nbout how to deal with
a fire. This man, when he is not
giving orders, or stoping for a. minute
to heave a piano overboard, stalks
about with the axe stuck in the back
of his belt, which adds greatly to his,
ferocious appeaiance. Besides hiin,
there is the man whose soul pants for
a ladder. "For God's sake wheie
is there a ladder?" "Ain't any of you
got a ladder?" (in your vest pocket)
He generally falls down a grating,
and injures his knees. And then,
again, there is the man who knows
all about the insurance. He usually
averages about 33 per cent of the
crowd. The relations of the 'owner
of the house on fire make up a re
spectable contingent. It has been
reckoned that he has five brothers-in-law,
fourteen uncles, ninety-two
nephews, and one hundred and fifty
three cousins. The accident ic
porter is, of course, on the scene
when any respectable fire takes place,
and he is sober enoughto find his
way to it. Then there is a man who
carries up the bight of the hose.
He inevitably gets capsized by the
coils, which is the cause of intense
amusement to the crowd. Finally,
the energetic policeman is theie,
alternately cuffing small boys and
surveying the fire with a look of
grand and gloomy gravity. Who
will say, after all this, that there is
no fun at a fire? bydncy livlletine.
THE PHENOMENA OF DEATH.
A Philadelphia physician has made
a special study of the phenomena of
death, both through his personal ob
servations and those of others, and
his conclusion is that the dissolution
is painless. "I mean," he explains,
"that it approaches as unconsciously
as sleep. The soul leaves the world
as painlessly as it enters it. What
ever be the cause of death, whether
by lingering malady or sudden vio
lence, dissolution comes cither
through syncope or asphyxia. In
ttie latter case, when lesulting from
disease, the struggle is long protrac
ted, and accompanied by all the
visible marks of agony which the
imagination associates with the clos
ing scene of life. Death does not
stiikc all the organs of the body at
the same time, and the lungs are the
last to give up the performance of
their functions. As death ap
proaches, the latter gradually become
more and more oppressed ; hence the
rattle. Nor is the contact sufficiently
perfect to change the black venous
into the red arterial blood. An un
prepared fluid consequently issues
from the lungs into the heait, and is
then transmitted to every other organ
in the body. The brain receives it,
and its energies appear to be lulled
thei-cby into sleep generally tranquil
sleep filled withtlrcams which impel
the dying to murmur out the names
of friends and the occupations and
recollections of life."
The following is interesting as
showing the value of Orders, and
will be appreciated by late recipients
iu Honolulu. "How somo of our
prominent citizens will arch their
necks and paw the earth with
pride when they read this item!
Listen. His Highness Saycd Par
gash of Zanzibar has been made a
K. C. M. G Our readers will, per
haps, recollect that this is the per
Bonage who wanted to make a state
visit to England a few years ago,
and was informed that he could not
be received by the authorities was
too much of a savage, in other words.
This is a pretty fair indication of
what value the English Government
seta on the order of Michael and
George. But, of course that is not
,thc point it is what the recipients
think of it, A Solomon Island chief
is as proud of the order of his Brass
Button as an English noble might be
of the order of tho Bath. It is nil a
question of latitude. By and bye,
tbe sacred order of the Footbath will
go bung, and will be attainable by
any pettifogging creature wild makes
money iu a threepenny, whisky mill,
and lends it out again at MOO per
cent." Sydney Vulletine,
Next to love, sympathy is the di
yinpst passion of the human heart.
