J. T. Lacy oi L,:v:h, Ark., sends tbe fol
lowing to the i t. Louis Republic:
About 70 yt.'irs iii;o I was told that in
olden t imes, m u even in modern times, the'
people had a vay of preserving the dead.
The idea struck me that, if the dead could
be preserved by drum, perfumes and chem
ical;, why not preserve the living? I told
my friends and neighbors that I believed
the living bod;- could be preserved ns well
as t'tf dead, but as they had never seen it
tested they we -e nut prepared to give an
I concluded to try the experiment, but
my neighbors f-aid I would kill myself, and
they advised me to let miture take its
course, as I wo;ld die as soon ns my time
came. I bc-run the experiment regardless
of my friends' opinion and protest, and now
I can look back and see that they are all
I preserved n y body 70 years nyo, when I
was S4 years of ape, which now makes me
104 years old. How much longer I can con
tinue my exper nient and preservation I do
not know, 1 be ni$ the first who has ever
undertaken the experiment. 1 guess that
I will lie cam led to await the result.
Should my ib-u' h be brought about by my
L experiment. I v.-tH-Id have nothing to re

life iiidei'.ni- e! y. Who knows and who can
tell what the re.ult will be? I am satisfied
as far ns I have none.
Some of the ix-st known citizens of the
town vouch fo- the truth of Mr. Lacy's
i.ii tlic Hurst-.
She told a friend about it afterward.
"The poor hordes seemed all worn out,"
hhc said. "I ha; ed to get on the car, but I
couldn't help i . Anyway 1 was as con
siderate as poss ble, for I sat down just as
easy as ever I co ild, und 1 don't think half

This reminds me of the fanner in his
wagon on the w iy to market who carried
his pig on his lap not out of affection for
the pig, but t.iat Dobbin between the
shafts might have less of a load to pull.

"Praying Vp the Steps."
The Catholics of Cincinnati gave a re
markable, demonstration of the faith,
that is in them when they "prayed up
the steps" on Mount Adams. This pe
culiar custom has been iu vogue for
about SO years, and the Church of the
Hojy Cross, standing on the brow of the
cliff on Mount Adams, has become cele
brated far and near for the miracles per
formed there. Fully 10,000 men and
women "prayed up the steps''"on Good
Friday. There are 267 of the steps in
all and about 35 landings. The pilgrims
who visit the chapel must remain silent
for three hours.
The pilgrim upon reaching the stairs
on Third street repeats a "Hail, Mary."
Stepping upon the first step, she pauses
and repeats the prayer. That done, she
steps np one and silently repeats "Hail,
Mary," and thus step by step she prays
to the top, pausing on the platform to
repeat the Lord's Prayer. All this time
she keeps in mind a certain wish she
hopes to have accomplished within the
year. Arriving at the church, the bare
footed monks bless them, and they go
about their business.
One of the fair penitents said most of
the young ladies pray for husbands. The
married women pray for their wayward
children. Those having 6ick friends pray
for their recovery. It is said cases of
rheumatism have been cured by the
patients "praying np the steps." Every
Good Friday the 6teps are blocked with
penitents from noon to dark. Cor. St.
