The thought of the tortures of those who

It sills the Fold Willi itrlef. Ho I think that
people are often burled alive? Yes, I do;

evening, 1 returned to the hou-e, as I was
concerned about the mother, to whom the

pletely lnseiiBlble to light. I should not
have dared nlllrm that the slight movement
that I had seen came from the body, and
yet I bellovul that my little patient wu
not dead. I have never been able to ex
plain how the phenomenon was produced;
I do not attempt to explain it; but one
thing certain Is that the child Was consid

There was so little doubt nf his actual
death that u few hours later the fuiieial
bell was lolled. He toiild not see, but he
could luar, and he. endured the exquisite
rain of hearing the physician declare that

New York, Dec. III. The last day of Hie
year 1S9I is about the dullest or any full
liiiiinews day uf the entire twelve months,
and on few If any days has the speculation
been more uninteresting. The lotal sales
bandy exi ceded fii.cniii hares ami Si. l'.inl,
with sales of S,."l .-.hares to lis credit, was
the uin,.i in live or the whole list, There
were periods of exuemii stagnation dining
the day, and at no time was there, any ani
mation. The bond market ruled llrm during the
day wilh tho Heading Issues exceptions.
The reported falluie of the reorganlz.ltl.in
plan caused liquidation In the Incume bonds,
resulting 111 declines of li. per cent each
In tlie ilr-ts and seconds, 1, per cent In the
thirds and In tier cent 111 the deferred. In
the later de-allngs there v.is ,i recovery of
