THE LAST OF THE CHRISTIANS,
HOW THEY LEFT A VKIIY SMALL FORTUNE,
AND HOW IT WAS EXPENDED A
UNIQUE ADMINISTRATOR'S ItaTORT I'A
TltOS AND POETRY.
Old man Christian had two sons Wil
liam and Albert. Ho dlod, bequeathing
nbout $500 all his wealth to William,
tho oidor son, A month after tho old
man's death, "Wil'lam, also, wont tho way
of nil flesh, and Albert bccruo po; jsscd
of the $500. Rut In n month after Wil
liam's death, Albert likewiso took his jour
ney to that land from whose bourno no
no traveler returns. And thus endod the
raco of all tho Christians. Thomas Mar
tain was in rapid succession tho adminis
trator, of the estate of tho cider Christian
and of each cf tho two boys ; and after tho
death of Albert had in his hands about
200, which, stneo thcro was no Christian
to receive It, he concluded to expend in
tombstones to murk the place of tho Chris
tians who hud gone before. His Inten
tions in this regard were somewhat
shocked by tho servico of u citation from
Judgo Rross, who, we fear, will pine and
die wbon ho has no moro administrators
and guardians to "cite," ordering him to
show causo why hu should not mako a final
settlement of tbo Christian estate Rut,
knowing tho tenderness of tho Judge's
hoart, his stiscoplibillty to poetry, Mar
tain resolved to assault Ilross In his tendor
place, nnd so submitted to his considera
tion the following
Said administrator would rcnort. that
no claims have evor been allowed nealnst
said cStato, that said Albert H. Christaian
died leaving no known heir at law or le
gal representative; that tho graves wherein,
repsse tho ashes of tho dead Albert, and
of his father Samuel L. Christian, who
devised tho samo to said Wlllian, remain
unprotected or v.nmnrkcd by stono or
monument, with nothing to perpetuate the
memory or mark tho resting place of fa-
tner nnu son, tne last oi an the unristians,
who lived and died and left money for tho
coflcrsiof tho county but not a cent to pro
tect tneir own Hallowed uust or proclaim

Oh 1 sad Eitato t
Oh I human wrctchedncsl So weak is man
So ignorant and blind, that did not God
Sometimes withhold in mercy whit we ask
Wo should bo ruined by our own 'bequest.'''
Said; administrator, in consideration of
tbo premises, and in order tbat tbese three
Christains may not, while funds
that wero thoir's remain, sink into their
graves "unknclleu, uncoiuned ana
unknown," would respectfully ask of this
honorable court that ho bo permitted, as a
part of tho burial expenses and expenses
of administration, to invest tho said sum
of money, now in his hands, in inclosing
the said graves and erecting over them a
suitablo marblo slab "sacred to the mem
ory" of theso men; that
What wo have seen our sons shall see,
Remnant of things thut havo passed aw.iy,
Fragments of stones reared by creatures of
and also to the gravoof tho Mtid Samuel's
wire and daughter, nnd that tins cause
may be continued until ksaid r lministru
tiou can make a final report of his action
in this pemUcs.
Hut if this honorable court shall not in
its wisdom grant what seems to bo meet
and proper to said administrator, viz:
that tho funds of the dead, when unclaim
ed by justice and uncalled for by the liv
ing, should be appropriated towards giving
liononiblo sepulturo to its owner, then,
and in that case, said administrator res
pcetiully nsks thnt this bo approved as his
Html rcjwt, nnd that he be discharged as
sucn administrator upon his paying into
the county treasury the said sum no in
his hands, nnd filing with tho clerk of this
court his receipt therefor.
"Yet I beseech you
Wrench once the law to your authority,
To do a great right, do a little wrong,"
and glvo tho money to the dead and not
to tho state. Thomas Martain,
Administrator of Albert H. Christian, de
ceased. Need wo say that Judgo Ilross, who is as
adamant to prosaic eloquence, melted bo
fore this poetical assault nnd graciously per
mitted the graves of the last of tho Chr's
tians to bo marked by marblo slabs?
Dr. R. V. Price, of Buffalo, N. Y., In his
hook on Chronic Diseases, says in regard
to his Golden Medical Discovery, with
which our render? are familiar, "from its
wonderful power over Consumption of tho
Lungs I had tlnught strongly of calling it
my Consumptive Curo; but from tho fact
that it is n perfect specific for tho sore
throat and hnarsncss to which ministers
and public speakers and singers aro subject
and also for Ilronehitl. and all terero
