Dr. Garrigncs said that In New York
there was little danger cf meeting these
horrors if a perron had a little money, but
that the destitute would find their wav to
the dissecting roonj. The ethers would be
cared fur by the undertakers, lie did net
altogether favor tho custom of some Euro
pean countries of haviDj? doctors appoint
ed to examine every body and issue the
death certificates. Politics mlht creep
into the appointments and lead to the se
lection of incompetent men.
In his opinion the regularly authorized
practiticEer of medicino could perform
this duty perhaps with greater safety, but
in every instance, he held, they should bu
reqivired to certify that they had person
aiiyexamincd the bodyand to the presence
cr absence of ail eins cf death.

Mm- We Walk.
T T-I. . T :.. T .
iu xuv i.:ierary ijifivtiz appears a
transi::tio!i cf a review of "Comment
on Marcho" "How Wo Walk"), the
lateM bonis on tno subject by Messrs.
Kepnault and liaoul. In this work it is
claimed that we have been wrongly ed
ucated in walking and that the erect
posture and firm step that we have been
led to lif-iii.ve were evidences cf health
ami strength aro conventional and vicious.
M. Marer. who wrote the intr.odnrv
tio'i to tho volume, says that there is a
fctyiu of walking that enables one, with
out excessivo latigne, to go distances of
. . .i - :i ... . ..
lima -j 10 .j miles in a mini ci the
time usually required. This may be ac
complished by walking with the knees
bent and tho body inclined forward, a
method which lias been observed iu pro
fessional pede.-trijns, mountaineers,
peasants, hunters and soldiers fatigued
by long marches. Iu not adopting this
method, it is claimed that, as with all
tho other acts cf Jifa, we remaiu slaves
of conventional aesthetics.
