case is worth reporting. A gen tlemaa who
appeared to be quite wealthy took rooms

his landlord that his brother w is dead, and
asked permission to bring tht body to his
rooms while the Arrangements for inter
ment were completed. Remission was
granted, and a haudnome col Ha arrived,
containing what appeared to be a corpse in
a Ion? white shroud. The coffin was
placed in the dining room. Next night,
after all had retired save tht- lodger and
servant muid, an apparition appeared to

turn upon the tender place he makes a
great disturbance in his sleep, but is diffi

the point of climbing through the tnmsjm
to awake him when the mnn fell out of

case he explained that ull that was neces

was to yell, "lurn over, John," he having
become so familiar with such a command
in his sleep that he invariably obeyed it
unconsciously. The plan has since been
tried and found to work admirably. The

It would seem luutany rr tico..i-

advisable that the soul or the conuemnea
criminal should receive its impetus into
eternity when absolntely stupefied by
ether. Those who know death to oe ap
proaching prefer, as a rule, to meet it wit
tingly with a clear brain, even though
racked by physical pain of an excruciating
nature. One of the greatest empresses wno
ever lived refused to go to sleep when she
knew her death was near, because when
she died she wished to meet death with
onen eves and an unclouded sense. If the
suggestion for the use of anesthetics in
capital punishment should be pressed with
force it is probable that tbe great resistance
to that change would be based on tbe
ground that it stupefied the criminal be
fore it killed him. lioston Advertiser.
