Jove looked down ruefully upon the
slaughterer of the Titans. Olympus
was really a sight, but Juno cherked
him up a bit. “Brace up, old man;
It's all right Remember Port Ar
thur,” and Jove’s brow cleared as he
whistled down the tube for the Jani
tor to come and mop up the debris.
Venus was doing her best to per
suade the bashful Adonis to let her
have Just one kiss. The goddess
looked entrancing, but Adonis was
adamant. “No.” he answered sorrow
fully to her pleadings. "Don’t yon
know there are mimobes In kisses?"

Little Fear of Premature Burial.
Although premature burial is ex
tremely rare, except perhaps on the
battlefield, the possibility of such an
occurrence cannot be denied. It Is
well known that, owing to this possi
bility, remote as it Is, many otherwise
strong-minded persons have lived
under the shadow of a great fear, and
have in their wills directed payments
to be made to physicians who should
be willing to run the risk of homicide
to prevent live burial. It pay safely
be said, however, that the horrors of
the accident are imaginary rather than
real. If a person in a state of trance
were to be burled while life still per
slated in a latent state, it is scarcely
conceivable that the victim coub.
awake; the unconsciousness of cata
lepsy would simply deepen until 1-

of death.—British Medic* l Journal.
