"What Is Death?' in yonr Sunday issue.
As ^Federal soldier, May 81, 1862,1
was one of those who fought against
; the surprise of General Johnston, at
the time commander of the Confed
erate army, at Fair Oaks. The sur
"prise was made at noontime, while
^our boys were eating lunch. I remem
, ber one soldier being struck in a vital
part- and killed while leaning upright
'against a tree in the act 'of carrying a
-flapjack to his mouth, remaining aftoi
*death in precisely the same position.
- When I saw him standing .there I mis
:.took him for a live man, especially as
-.he seemed to me intent only on eating
his flapjack, but tho illusion was dis
/ peiled when touching him, because as
? sn officer I wanted him to join his com
My Own personal experience in the
:. matter confirms the physicians' also.
The 30th of April, 1886, a fire was rag
ing in my factory in San Francisco. By
some means I was alxrat 150 feet from
^the main entrance in. the burning build
ing when, to my dismay, I beheld the
I five story wall topple over me through a
? skylight. Passively I lowered my head;
thinking only of my coming death and
I wishing it would be swift In less thar
a second thousands of bricks fell on me
^ sounding like a big drumstick beating
5 on a big bass drum. I remember a
:. crash,- then nothing, but whet? I came tc
?my senses 1 was wedged in betweei
- heavy timbers, the upper part of my
body only being free.
- About a dozen steps back of me was s
I stranger to me who had not received t
.scratch, but ascertaining that my leg
. was broken, and also my utter inability
to save myself, ho crawled over to m<
and attempted to pull me out of my ter
rible situation. But all his efforts onlj
increased my suffering, and as I sawth<
' flames come up I entreated him to leav<
/me to my fate and try to save himself
Finally he crawled away, promising
.however, to return with help and axes
1 must have been bewildered, for'no ac'
of my past life came to my memory, bu'
suddenly thinking of my small, mother
less children 1 shouted for help, wins
tiing at intervals through my fingers. -
Some firemen must have heard, fo?
presently there vere several streams oi
water poured on me. 1 then realizec
my danger, yet I, who had never gon<
into a battle without a pang, felt non?
- whatever while in that deathtrap. Th<
. water and smoke combined must hav<
asphyxiated me, for when my strange]
. returned leading a brave party of fire
men and po! icm eu I laid as one dead
Behaving me dead, and being in a verj
dangerous position, they cut away pari
of the timbers and rudely but safelj
passed me over tho debris in the street,
A deafening shout from an immense
throng which had witnessed the gallanl
rescue, streams of cold water and fre3i
air revived me, and I begged of them tc
be careful with my limbs, which wert
: i dangling from my body.
After many weeks of suffering the
.?. physicians decided to break my leg
S again, but being unable to- do it well
while I had my senses they, decided tc
- chloroform me. Being subject to heart
gi disease I objected, but the matter being
urgent. I finally consented to take the
j anaesthetic. Fully convinced, however,
- that 1 should die under its influence, but
knowing that either way l would have
to die, I'agreed to take the only chance
of fifo I had and laid myself resignedly
;on my* back; yet, although convinced
. : that my last hour had come, I had not
the slightest recollection of my former
deeds. * As I heard the physicians' whis
pers gradually lost in the distance I was
only wondering what would come next.
I recovered, however; but, breaking
my l?g-a third timt> on account of some
adhesions in my: knee, it was decided
that I should undergo another operation,
which necessitated the use of anaesthet
ics again. This time the physicians
thought I was a goner sure, for it took
them nearly two hours to revive me;
yet, although certain of my last hour, I
could, not recall my past life, and in
neither case did I f-ear death when I had
squarely to face it.
In each instance the passing away was
painless, while in the fire suffocation
carno almost unconsciously, while al
most the same sensation came in the
other cases. In the case of the soldier
at Fair Oaks (Seven Pines) a certain time
must have elapsed between his decease
and my notice of him, yet heaven or
hades did not seem to bother him; his
flapjack seemed to be what he wanted
his eyes wore on it and his mouth was
open ready to receive it. In my own
case I could claim to have died three
times within a year, yet I do not think I
had any other but a sensation of rest.
Dr. Epwor i, in his assertion also that
either a look of horror or beatitude
overspreads ; deceased person's face,
seems to forget that the Scriptures teach
us that the soul leaves our ' terrestrial
envelope at once on dissolution; hence
the body cannot show what reception
the soul had on the other side of the

A Feat in "Writing.
, ' .John J. Taylor, of Streator, Ills., once
wrote 4,100 words on the blank side of a
postal card. This was sent to a Chicago
paper, which heralded the story to the
world as being the most wonderful piece
? of penwork ever executed. As a matter
of fact Mr. Taylor s effort has been dis
counted on several occasions. Beedie,
thc penman of Ottery St. Mary, Liver
pool, once wrote the following pieces en
tire, without the slightest abbreviation,
sui upon a piece of cardboard Z% hy 3%
inches in size: Goldsmith's "Traveler,"
"Tri Deserted Village," "Essay on Edu
cation," "Distress of a Disabled Soldier,"
" "The -Tale of Azim," "Justice," "Gen
erosity," "Irresolution of Youth," "Frail
ty of *Man," "Friendship" and the "Ge
nius of Love."
In the center of the card there was a
perfect picture of Ottery church, all of
the shades and lines being formed of
parts of the writing. As a kind of tale
pieco ho added the anthem of "God Save
the Queen," embellished it with seventy
: two 6tars, fifty-one crescents and nine
teen crosses, finishing the whole by draw
ing a picture of a serpent which inclosed
the whole of the miraculous production.
If you wish to ascertain exactly how
much Boodle's effort exceeded that of
Mr. Taylor, count the words in the
Goldsmith pieces catalogued above.-St.
TITLES OF ENGLISH WOMEN. *
Distinctions That May Seem Bathor Com
plicated to an American.
It is little wonder that foreigners bun
gle over onr titles aa they do, when in
our own public speeches and newspa
pers it is often made plain that many do
not understand howto use English titles.
For instance, A marquis' daughter who
married a man-without a title keeps the
title of "lady" and her own Christian
name and adds to these the husband's
Tims, when Lady Evelyn Fitzmaurice,
the daughter of the Marquis of Lands
downe, married Mr. Victor Cavendish
ehe became Lady Evelyn Cavendish;
; but the London dailies spoke of "Lady
Victor Cavendish's going away dress."
The only case niwMch a lady of title
i is called by her husband's Christian
. name as well as his surname i is in the
; case of the vrita? of the younger sons of
; dukes and marquises.
These men bear courtesy titles of
. "lord" before their Christian names
and surnames, as Lord George Hamil -
. ton, Lord Charles Beresford, and so on,
i and the only-correct way of addressing
; or speaking of their wives is the same
'. way, putting "lady" in the place of
To call the wives of younger sons
Lady Hamilton, Lady Beresford, or
i whatever is the surname,, without the
male Christian name, is as incorrect as.
. to call Lady Evelyn Cavendish by her
? husband's full name.
i On the other hand, the wife of a bar
. onet or of a knight is "lady," with his
i surname alone after it.
t Confusion grows in many minds from
the fact that any peeress (under the
1 rank of a duchess) is also spoken of, and
i to, by her equals as merely ''Lady So
and-so"-the mame added, however, not
; being the family name, but the title of
i the husband.,
> Thus no equal would say, "I saw the
r Marchioness of Salisbury" or "There is
r the Countess of Lathom," it would he
Lady Salisbury and-Lady Lathom.
i A duchess, the highest rank in tho
i peerage, is the only peeress who escapes
f this equality of title in the everyday
. language of her equals in society. She
) is never called "lady" only, but is
- spoken of as "the Duchess of So-and-so"
r in full always, and- is - addressed in con- -
j versation by her friends as "duchess,"
) the name of the peerage not added. ..
Moreover, every other lady pf title,
, from a knight's- wife (which-, isi?qt a
. real title), right away np to a march
t iouess, is equally "wy lady" to her so
t cial inferiors.

Intermarriage in Eurasia.
There is no remote chance of Eurasia !
ever being reabsorbed by either of its
original elements; the prejudices of both 1
Europeans and natives are far too vigor
ous to permit of much intermarriage ,
with a people who are neither one :
nor the other. Occasionally an up ;
country planter, predestined to a remote ;
and "jungly" existence, comes down, to ?
Calcutta and draws his. bride from the.
upper circles of Eurasia-this not so j
often now as formerly. Occasionally,
too, a young shopman with the red of 1
Scotland fresh in his cheeks is carried
off by his landlady's daughter, while
Tommy Atkins falls a comparatively '
. The sight of a native with s half caste
wife is much rarer, for there Eurasian
as well as native antipathy comes into
operation. The whole conscious in
clination of Eurasian life, in habits, !
taste, religion and most of all in am bi- <
ti on, is toward the European and sway '
from the native standards.-Sara J.
Duncan in Popular Science Monthly.
Virus and Venom- ,
The difference between venom and a j
virus is very marked. I Both are poisons, ;
and both of organic origin, but a venom j
is produced in secroting organs,-;.com- j
monly called poison glands, and is intro
duced into the system by means especial- <
ly adapted for the purpose, such as stings' '<
or fangs. On the other hand, a virus is :
the result of disease or putrefaction, and
generally possesses the property of excit
ing in the system^ into which it is intro- ?
doced the disease which produced the 1
virus. A virus commonly produces lit
tie, if any, local disturbance; a venom ll
generally causes great pain, often severe
inflammation and swelling. Venom has
a marked, local effect; virus causes a
general disturbance of the system.-St. i

true. Though one of his many titles h> 1

From a strange tendency of huiuan na

boy who devours the pages of his half a
dime yellow back hovel, but also for the ^
reader of stronger judgment and better. e

storm anet defying the lightning of of- f
fended heaven to transfix him. Of all fi
this unholy brood Blackboard was facile g
princeps, as Milton says of satan, "By ?
merit raised to that; bad eminence." It, v
was an Arabic tradition, relative to the
great unknown Atlantic that the v
gnarled and bony hand of the devil rose B
from out the waves of the sea of dark- D
ness to seize the presumptuous mariner, &
and in his diabolic career Blackboard t:
seemed to be the impersonation of this v
mystic monster. Perhaps a greater de- ?
mon never prowled the seas or walked r
the earth in human form. v
Even in personal appearance he was D
hideous and repulsive, nature having ^
stamped him both as a physical and ?
moral monster, The name by which he D
was known throughout the world was h
derived from a singular circumstance, j
which illustrates his savage ferocity.
His naturally dark and forbidding face
was covered almost to his fierce, sensu
ous 6yes with a, shaggy black beard, .
reaching below the waist. This hirsute *
adornment, of which he was very proud, n
and which he cultivated with sedulous
care, he was accustomed to braid with
ribbons and to twist about his ears until
it stood forth like projecting horns.
Into the ends of these he stuck small,
slowly burning fuses, whose sulphurous ?
fumes enveloped him in a lurid hue and .
rendered him a not unfitting representa . !'
rion of the satanic ideal, whose character
he so successfully emulated. In time of a
action he slung around his neck a scarf. 6
into which were thrust three brae*" 0
pistols. Our readers, even those who ?
are not endowed with Dantesque powers
Of imagination, anil especially our femi- v

the black flag fluttering above his head
and;his merciless face lighting up with
a gleam of demoniacal joy as his help

The real name of this man was Ed
ward Teach, and he W9B a native of Bris
tol, England, Of his early career noth
ing definite is known. He first emerged jjj
from obscurity as a common sailor on fl
board a privateer commanded by Cap
tain Benjamin Hornigold, sailing from J
Jamaica and preying upon French com
merce. In that numble capacity he dis
tinguished himself by his skill and cour
age, which attracted the attention of
his not over scrupulous commander, who a
soon intrusted him with a prize he had 0
captured. In 1717 these two choice h
spirits spread their sails from Provi
Aence (auspicious name!) for America, c
capturing en voyage three vessels laden c
with wine, flour and miscellaneous car- ti
goes, which they appropriated to their h
own nie and turned the. crews adrift. t(

more likely his heart failed him, for, a

The Wearing of Kings.
"It is a constant surprise to me," said
man tho other day, "that a woman
dth a palpably ugly hand will call

Weed Maps ic Germany.
The Germans have some educational
leas which we in this country have bor-,
owed with profit, and there are still
thers which wo might be wise to adopt,
un on g them no doubt are the wall .
laps of different species of pos! i ferons
reeds, which hang in schoolrooms where
be children can see them as long aa they j
0 to school.
A practical idea underlies the display
ag bf these maps. It is well known
bat farmers are prone to treat all weeds
like, and hardly to observe any differe
nce between them, whereas the natures ?
f weeds differ as much as the natures
f other plants do, and the sort of
reatment which will exterminate one
rill sometimes increase and multiply
It is important therefore that the farm
r and gardener should understand the
reeds which they are trying to external
It is here that these German wall
laps come in. They show colored pic
ares of the most pestiferous weeds, in
ll stages of growth, and also the ways
a which they scatter their seeds and
ropagate themselves. By learning them
boroughly, through seeing them day by
ay on the walls, the child grows up
nth a knowledge of the best way to ex
jrminate them-Youth's Companion.

A Delicate and Dangerous Treatment.
A certain cure for freckles is carbolic
cid, and its effects are not only certain,
ut quick. The skin must first be washed
?oroughly in warm water, and then
ried with a soft towel. Each freckle,
r bunch of them, must be dealt with
jparately. Stretch the skin with the
ngers, and touch the freckle with a
rop of pure carbolic acid. Allow this
> dry on the skin, and in a few minutes
i will burn and grow white. The akin
ins burned will fall off in a week or
>, and leave a new rosy white skin in
lace of the freckle. To prevent burns
