No churches have been founded, no
shrines decorated, to honor these ninie-
ss heroes: but many a saint whoso
name stands high on the niuster-ivll of
the noble army of martyrs, and whoso
memory lives in costly silver and im
pi'itshalilt! marble, might fn'rly yield
his place to the "wilnesses" of Nam
paminaritia. Of all that doomed band
one only escaped with life from that
(lolgotha. This was a young girl,
who walked quietly to the place of exe
cution, saying that there was no need
to bind or carry her, for she was quite
ready to go. Hope were entertained
that she might be induced to rec; nt,
and with this view orders were pri
vately given lo the native ollieers who
superintended the butchery to reserve
her to the last. She was set close to
the edge of the precipice and held there
by the executioners while Ihe slaughter
proceeded. One by one her fellow
martyrs were crushed into shapeless
hideousiiess before her eves till she
alone was left. Hut the brave oirl nev
er flinched. To nil oilers of life the re
plied simply: "1 will not give up my
faith: let me go lo my friends." Infu
riated by her steadfast calmness the
chief of the rtilliatis w ho directed the
massacre struck her savagely on the
fais? and bade her take the oath of ali
jttrgation and do homage to tho gods
of the country or die forthw ith. Hut
her answer was tlll the same: "I will
follow mv friends '' "She i an idiot,
and knows nol what she says!" roired
the batlled sav.-ige: "lake her away!"
She was accordingly removed from the
spot and dragged away to a distant part
of the island, where she survived lo re

Dr. C. W. l'nlmer, of Lockport, N.
V., who was one of tho physicians hold
ing a post-mortem examination on tho
body of Captaiii Webb, furnishes tho
following account of it:
There was found marked rigor mor
tis. The. body was in a state yf activo
decomposition. All the tissues were
greatly ilislended by gases. There was
a scalp wound on top of the cranium,
three and one-half inches in length, not
involving tlie bony structure. No bones
were found broken. There were sev
eral other local injuries of the body,
but unimportant us to the cause of
death. The scalp wounilw as evidently
produced after death.
The muscular texture was peculiar.
By a cut longitudinally with a sharp
scalpel shreds of dessicated muscle
would be carried along with and collect
on llu) edge of the scalpel. All thu
blood presented n distinctly red color
iu some places remarkably red
showing that Ihe blood was not deoxid
ized by asphyxia in drowning, but that
death ensued prior lo that condition.
None of the characteristic symptoms of
death from drowning were present,
neither wns there any local injury suf
ficient to necessarily produce death.
The muscles were pale, and presented
the peculiar appearance for which we
could find no better name than ux
desiecation, the filament being ragged
and broken and separating with remark
able facility. The examination on each
extremity and upon the various portions
of the trunk and neck presented uni
formly these conditions.
As the result of oiirexamination 1 am
led to the conclusion, and in this I am
seconded by my colleagues, that death
was caused nut by asphyxia or drown
ing or bv any local injury hy the body
coining in contact with any hard sub
stance, but by the shock from the n-ao-t-onary
force of the water in the whirl
pool rapids coming in contact with the
submerged body with such force as to
instantly destroy the respiratory power,
and, in fact, all vital action by direct
pressure and force of contact a shock
of siitlicient intensity to par.ilwe the
nerve centers, partially il--sicca t a the
muscular tissues, and forestall any
probable scpiel uf death by drowning.
The cause of death in passingtliroiigli
these rapids being thus constant, and
in no way accidental, as might be
drowning or an injury received from
rocks, forces the conclusion Ihat no liv
ing Isslv can. or ever will, pass through
the raoi.ls alive: a fad established of
no little importance, and an ominous
warning to nil future adventurers.
