We liavo no doubt they aro thoso of a

all of tho soldiers who died in tho hos
pitals of tho city wcro burled in tho old
burial ground, and that no soldtor could
havo bcon buried undor proper authority

suggostcd that one of tho doctors who oc
cupied tho building beforo Myers, who
ronted it nbout two voars and six

Then tho question still remains:
"Whoso bones?" nnd who can answer?
Mrs. Myors says that for a considerable!

noticed and frequently called to Mr. Sly
er' attention, a disagrccablo odor as of
decaying flesh, rising from tho cellar into
their bed room, which was immediately
abovo tho gravo of tho deceased unknown.
This would indicate that tho death of tho
owner of tho bones occurred long after tho
closo of tho war; but Mrs. Myers' imagi
nation may havo deceived her senso of
smell, und the question: "Whoso Hones?"
The remains havo not nil been dlsln
tcrrcd yet; nnd, it is probable, that i
further investigation might throw somo
light upon this ghastly subject. Whoso
