Ainnzlng Sight In a Weit
Vti'Kliiln Lor Cabin Farmer limn-t-lck's
In a log cabin, about two and one-half
nv es from I'miuppi, w. va., lives an oat
German fanner, who will some day give
to tho world that which will prove the
wonder of the nineteenth century. It
seems that it has been left to the gray
warded old man, Graham H. Hamrick,
to discover something which has puzzled
the brains of learned men and scientists
for ages past. The discovery is the art ot
preserving animal and vegetable sub
stances so either may be kept without a
sign of decay or decomposition but
In his efforts to solve this great problem
ie has become to be regarded by many
people in that section of the country as
some kind of being to be avoided, and
there are many who will not go near the
tog house in which the old man has "live
dead people" and animals.
Just how Mr. Hamrick conceived tho
idea that he could preserve animal and
vegetable matter in its natural state he
3oes not say, but after experimenting for
years, a short time ago he became con
vinced that he had not labored in vain,
and he now declares, and his works prove,
that he has the art perfected. Until a
short time ago his experiments in preserv
ing or embalming had been confined to
lower animals and vegetables, and so suc
cessful had been his efforts that he deter
mined to test the process on human
bodies. He secured permission from the
authorities of the State Hospital for the
Insane to experiment on two bodies.
These were given into his custody, and in
one hour after he had them in his room
he informed the authorities that they were
ready for inspection. The bodies were
examined critically, and it was found
that they had not been mutilated in any
way, not a drop of blood had been drawn,
nor an incision or puncture made in
Since that time the two bodies havo
been continually exposed to the air and
all kinds of climatic changes, but they
are still perfect and lifelike. They aro
now in his room lying on a table, looking
as natural as when living. The blood in
the veins can be plainly seen standing out
in bluish black lines where vessels aro
superficial. There is not the slightest
trace of odor or decay about the bodies.
In this same room are embalmed cats,
dogs, fowls, rabbits, fawns, and other
things all as natural as life. Sticking
about in corners and on rough shelves
these "ornaments" give the room the ap
pearance of a museum. Those who have
ventured in the home of the farmer have
been amazed at the sight. Mr. Hamrick
ts plain and frank, with only a moderato
education, but he has been too shrewd to
give the slightest idea of his process.
However, he does not hesitate to say
that his process consists of applying
fluid, the ingredients of which can lie
found in almost any general country
store, and that the whole thing is so sini
pie a child could use it This assertion is
doubted by gentlemen who have given
the matter years of careful sindy.
The wisest heads in this country and
Europe have been puzzled in trying to
solve or comprehend his mystery.
No matter how eminent or how learned
a man may be, not one has yet visited
Mr. Hamrick and seen the demoustra
tions of its workings but has been
pleased and instructed by his visit.
beef packer of Chicago came to see him
with a view of using the fluid in the
preservation of beef for the market. II
asked Mr. Hamrick if he could preserve
say, 500 beeves and keep them 30 days,
Mr. Hamrick said : WI can not say, sir,
I have kept a few pounds of beef on ex
periments for nine months." He posi
tively refuses to claim more power in his
process than he can prove by past experi
nient to belong to it.
The home of this queer old man is evei
oiien to those who wish to visit him,
There are those who dread him and his
liumblo cabin because they fear the
dead, and on account of his association
with the embalmed or mummified ani
mals and bodies. It is almost impossible
to get negroes to go near his cabin.
The learned doctors of this country aro
tint alone in recognizing him and his se
cret in a proper way. Recently the
Royal Scientifique Association, of France,
m:ide him an honorary member, gave
him a certificate of life membership; and
k solid gold medal as a token of the es
teem iu which they hold him for making
it possible for the people of this age to no
longer speak of the "lost art" of embalm
ing. The process is no doubt worth an al
most inestimable amount of money, yet
this queer old man does not want to
change his habits and ways of living,
lie says he had rather live quietly along
in his little home on his hilly farm, sur
rounded by his "pets," than accept the
wealth at his command and hobnob with
The old man, at most, can not live
many years, and when the death angel
calls him, perhaps a 6inall concourse of
people will follow his remains to their
final resting place, most likely to be in
the old cemetery by the church, not more
than half a mile from his home. Be thai
as it may, when his secret is made known,
or comes into general use, he will be en
rolled as one of the most eminent in
ventors of the age, and his fame will go
down to posterity as the wizard who
more than restored to mankind the secret

inated and perished with the Tharaohs.
