It is the theory of levivifkation, by which persons apparently dead can bo brought back to I" First, the startling announcement of Pro- . ( feasor Grassolback. a distinguished Swedish iv chemist of the University ot Upsal, in refer VF jbjea.ee to the Egyptian mummies found in a ? state of perfect preservation in the ancient tombs of the Nile, surprised the scientific world. Differing from other mummies in that neither their brains nor entrails had been removed, he claims that they were not embalmed at all, but "are really the bodies of individuals whose lives have been mo mentarily suspended, with the intention of restoring them at some future time only the secret is lost." An instance in modern history which seems to give plausibility to this belief in "suspended animation" is par ticularly apropos. A HINDOO FAKIIl'S IIESTJSC1TATION. Sir Claude M. Wade, political resident at Lndianah, British agent at the court of Ruiit Siliirti. affirms most fcolemnlv that lin '.y. saw a fakir ot Hindostau brought back to r life after being apparently dead for six j weeks, at Lahore, in 1637. Ho says he ar- r nvea at mo piaca a lew nours alter tue I fakir had been buried; the Run jit Singh and other responsible persons testifying to the truth of his death. The tomb contain ing the body was a square room, called a barra durri, situated in the garden adjoin ing the paluce. It had four doors, thieo of which were hermetically sealed, the fourth, of iron, I emg .-ecu: ed w ith a padlock, the hole of which was sealed with the private seal of the rajah; henco thero was nu pos sible means of entrance or egro.-s. Besides these precautions two companies kept guard to prevent fraud. - At the end of the six weeks a number of dignitaries assembled to witness tbo resuscitation, and, on opening ,j fse coiim, oir i,iduue ivauosays me iiuiUs if tot the fukir were shrunken as if in death, U the face only looking full und natural. The corpse was then subjected to a system of treatment, in which hot applications to tho bead and limbs were prominent, and in less than half an hour the fakir was talking freely. Tho interest thus awakened in tho British agent, resulted in his subsequently making investigations bearing on the sub ject, during which he learned that "the ra tionale of the process rested on Uie view of the Hindoo physiologists that brat consti tutes tho self existent principle of life, and that if the functions even te so fur inter rapted as to leave this one in perfect pur ity, life can bo retained for long periods without air, food or other means of suste nance. That such a thing as suspending anima tion was really known and practiced at so late a date as the nineteenth century makes it more than probablo that it was known to the ancients. That there was a mysterious "black art" known to. and practiced by, the people of tho east is no myth; but that I all knowledge of it was lot in the destruc tion of the Alexandrian library, except what tradition has handed down, is equally certain. The objoot now, however, of tho scientific investigator is to discover tho secret by which this suspended animation may b restated. Mr. 'Francis Gerry Fairfield, in his essay on "Apparent Death," gives an instance Where the knowledge terminated tragically. !' Jrho know tho art of feigning death, eluded L" Iia lianrlttnf hi. rro(ilfr hv- 11 rinn- hjifliloiilx- . . -j , ...0r..j ais Doay was men given to nis who, itcajji Bali, who had it taken back to his homo, and by bcr knowledge of tho secret of reviv ification, restored him to his original condi tion. Later on, however, he had occasion to play tho same sharp trick, but having in the meantime married another wife unac quainted w ith tho art, and who believed him really dead, his body was burnt with duo ceremony. A Now, w o prcsumo this i what Professor Graoselbuck lelioves to l.avo happened to j those mummies foun I in tiie tombs of tho Kile; that for some reason of their own their animation had been suspondoJ, and before tho period set for their return to life Jk had elapsed, thoo possessed of tho secret I had died, and their secret with them. Tho prore?sor presents many proois 01 uis tneory of revivification, most convincing of which are his own successful evirinients during the past ton or nioro years. He claims to have treated a hvo snako iu such a way as to mako it present in every particular tho characteristics of a marble ono even t the extreme Lnttkuiess; having preservedit iu this condition lor several years, he applied to it some stimulating fluid, known only to "himself, by w Inch it was restored to life. This he repeated many times for fifteen years, during which the snake was alternately petrified and re i ifled at the will of tho ( professor, who was so delighted with his success that he has petitioned the Swedish tzovernment to allow him some of tho con- demaed crimmals to experiment on, prom '" jWJtfc.to bring them kick to life al tho and Vf two years, the criminals to be then par doned. Mr. James L. Finch and Dr. Armitage, in our'town country, give i-ome interesting i accounts of resuscitating annuals apparently dead. Ono wis a dog they killed by bleed i lag, and utter wards brought bacu to life by inserting tho blood of a living dog in its Teias. The theory of M. Robin, tho distinguished French chemist, is allied to rejuvenation, the faith of tho Hosicrucians, who, it was I believed, renewed tbo tissues of their bodies BT eating certain herbs. To Mr. Robin lactart acid is tho prolongor of life, and he rlainvr its power to be unfailing. Whether I or not tho knowledge of ro iviiication and j j rejuvenation would be a blessing to the i verld is an open question. Surely tho fate fol the "Wandering Jew" is an unenviable ' ose. Exceeding long life was pronounced Bpea him as the greatest curse, and certainly ' aethiBg could bo more meloncholy than to he compelled to inhabit thi.- earth after all ear friends h.ul gone, and what possible . pltasar or benefit could those .Egyptian MWitniir experience in being brought back ft Wb centuries after their time, condemned teaa existence as isolated as that which our liMtCiaation picture of the cursed Israelite.

Waterscapes That Are Odd and Cartons, hat Kather Monotonous Much That Is Gorgeous, Tropical and Novel to a Northerner Up the St Johns. There is a deal of humbug in this Florida business a good deal more than I venture to set forth, lest I lay myself liable for slander. "And yet there is really a good deal in the state worth seeing, and some few things worth owning. But the things oftenest mentioned and most highly prized appear to me of rather the least value. The crystal lakes and pellucid streams appear, when you stir them up, about the color of tan-yard ooze. Ihe land is one-third under water, and another third just above it, while the really dry part is piney woods. When I first looked across the St John's I said it was clear water, clear as Lake Michi gan, but tbat is merely an illusion, pro duced by the reflection of a bright sky. Once on the river, I perceive it is of a light put pie hue, and as tho steamer's wheels churn it up there is no phosphorescent sparkle, as on tho lake; it boils up like a weak solution of liquid manure. As to tho scenery, it is simply odd; the pretense of grandeur is laughable. Of the really roman tic, the w hole state does not show as much as may Lo seen on the Wabash between the Delphi and Lafayette. How can there be romance or grandeur where there are no bluffs, no hills the eye can take cognizance of, no cataracts, and no bold rocky or sandy shores; wnereall the streams have a barely perceptible current along the middle of broad lagoons, bordered by apparently end less wastes of dark green aquatic plants and stagnant water? Odd and curious it is to be sure, but rather montonous. Where's the romance in a mud puddle? Kow as to health of course I can only know of w inter by report, for I came when settled warm weather did. L have been in the fctate eleven days, and have caught cold every day in the evening, within ten minutes after the sun went down. Natural consequences follow. I write this with a plaster on my chest and nine grains of quinine in me a three grain pill before each meal to-day. The residents com placently remark: "It isn't the fault of the state it is in you." Of course it is in ma I did not expect tho state to take cold be cause 1 came into it And, to be sure, how can it be healthful when you can't trael two miles in any direction without crossing a slough in w hich the slimy vegetation rots and sours, and sours and rots, and then grows over with a yellow-green fungus which conceals the worst features till late in May, then rots and slimes and slimes and rots for five months more, under a tropical sun? Does not common sense teach that if such a district proved healthful it would make nature a liar in all the rest of the world? TOLERABLY HEALTHFUL TLACES. And yet I doubt not there aro many tol erably healthful places in Florida. If a man will get half a milo of high pine woods and dry white sand between him and tlw nearest slough, and not work hard in the beat ot the day, or go out after sundown, and take a little quinine till his system har monizes with the environment, I doubt not he can live hero many years in good health, for I meet hundreds who have done it And then there aro some people who enj'oy tho happy faculty of the negro of sweating out malaria as fast as it enters them. But for one such there aro three who could not sit outdoors, or even on an open porch, hero for half an hour after sundown without feeling ill effects. Very many of those who have enjoyed good heaith here for years tell me they havo to take precautions against the night air. No matter how how warm and dsy the day may havo been, tho moment tho sun di appears the suspended damp seems to descend upon tho earth in a great sheet The climate is in deed seductive, and to tho glorious nights and balmy air of early morning I probably owo the exposure which basso affected me; but if a man must lie by for five hours in the middle of the day and keep in his room after sundown, how is ho to got the good of the climate? I would prefer loss climate and mo'-e liberty. And yet there is a great deal to see in Florida, and it is gorgeous, tropical and novel to n northerner. Take tho scene be fore ma The setting sun casts a rod and yellow light upon the lake (merely an en largement of the St Johns), which stretches nearly five miles broad f i om the front of the town ; all around are tho curious grasses, palms, and pines, while tho cabbage palmet toes stand forty or fifty feet high along the shore, bare trunks up to tho circular tufts on their tops. Above and below town a shallow bayou runs inland, thickset with spring growth till it gradually changes to low hammock, while toward tho south the gi ound rises gontly for a mile to a sand ridge, now covered w ith a continuous 01 ango i grove 11W aci os of orchard, not a tree in jured by tho noted fiost, und all thick set with the young oranges lor this year's crop. , STEAMED AXU I-'EIUIEXTED. The main streets of tho town aro as dry ' as an ash heap as dry as white sand ever i gets under a hot sun. But tlie bayous above and below send on" shallow branches which make a wet meadow back of town, and j from there ono can w alk either way, fol-' low mg what little current there is, till he finds himself again near the lake front, among matted p'alms and spiky gras, ' where this year's crop is aggressively strong while last year's crop lies rotting on tho ground. All day that matted mass has steaine 1 and f ei mented under a hot sun, . and in half an hour lrom this time the even ing air will waft therefron an invisible something which will compel many a sus-j ceptiblo man to keep indoors. Talk about such a place being healthful! Lut tilk it to tho murines and don't preach it to "your J Uncle Fuller." The trip up the St John's is a uovolty ! well worth taking in. Tho river itself is a curiosity. Its most southern head is only ten miles or so lrom tho Atlantic; yet, from there it runs oil north ome 400 miles by course and more than 20) in a direct line, i and its head is no more than ten leet higher than its mouth. Westward from this head the numerous lakes which feed the stream rise, and Lake Apopka is twenty-two feet above sea level, while not far west and north of that aro elevations nearly 600 feet high, though the eye can not perceive the rise. No . matter bow high a lake may be, however, the outlet therefiom has but a sluggish cur rent: and in this vicinity, wherj many ditche- have been dug. 1 perceive that the increased current ttius gamed has scon brought in light white tand sufficient to check tlie stream, and I fancy that this tendency to choe the outlets will l a con stant difficulty in drainage. Nevertheless, the Florida Drainnge company has taken a big contract, and confidently promises to redeem some 4,0. 0,000 acres of wet T:am mock in a few years.

Schemes Invented to Catch Car Conduc tors Who Are Not Honest. "Do you want to see a real 'spotter at work?" whispered a stout, ruddy-faced surface-car conductor to a reporter whom he knew, as the latter scrambled upon the rear platform of a crowded upward-bound car the other afternoon. "Well, then, no tice tbat dudish-looking chap in the far corner on the right-hand side tho fellow with a book in his hand, I mean." , The re(Krter casually glanced in the di rection indicated and saw a handsomely dressed, intelligent-looking young man who seemed to be deeply engrossed in the con tents of a neatly bound copy of '-Judith Shakespeare," the pages of which he skimmed with the rapidity of a veteran re viewer. He had a pencil in his hand, with which ho frequently wrote something on the margin or underlined sentences that struck his fancy. There was so little of the imag inary "spotter" about the youth's make up that the reporter turned to tho fare-taker again with a half-incredulous smile and asked him if ho was not "oil" a little. "Oh, no," replied the conductor, "not an inch. I am rizut on to that fellow and , ha e been for a week past Somo of tho I boys found him out about sight days ago, and of course the word was qui kly passed along the line. Just watch him yourself. Don't you see how he makes some sort of a inai k with his pencil every time a passenger trots onj He got on near the City Hall, land will probably ride up to the stables F with me, and if my register does not tally with his marks you may be sure I'll hear about it But 1 am not 'blowing in' any thing for my household expenses this trip. You can't call this that he is working a new dodge exactly it is but another form of an old wrinkle. Sometimes they keep account of the fares by turning down the corners of the leaves of the book which they pretend to read. Then again they will come aboard with a certain number of peanuts in their pockets and eat one for each passenger we take up and the number left deducted ii om the original number in their tally sheet. It does not take Us long to get on tnese new devices, however, and they have to keep in venting new schemes to entrap us ail the time. A fow of thee spotters are really smart; they watch us, keep tally day after day and yet we are not able to find them out These use no outward appliances, however, but depend entirely upon their memories, which aro excellent Ono or two of them are women, I understand. In my opinion it is getting harder every day for any man to live dishonestly in this town." Just before the stables we-e i ned the young man shut the book, turn. a tuiurd tho register and got off tho car by the f i ont platform. As he walked awny down a side street there was a look of disappointme.it upon his face. He had taken at least one trip in vain. Now York Tribune. The Fine Art of Tasting.

Saturday Re view. A Uock in Pyramid Lake. Ono of the largest of these rocks, a tall white ono soon from toward tho head of the lake, is called Fremont's pyramid. It is not wholly perpendicular on nil sides. On one cf its sides is a steep slops, which it is thought might be scaled in some way. A story is current that tho .great Pathfinder found a path to tho top ot tuis rock when bo passed through to California in 1S4C, with Kit Car son for his guide. It is the popular belief that he left his field-glass and somo other in struments of value on the summit of the rock. Mauy attempts have been made to ciimb it to secure these articles. The last attempt to scale the pyramid was mado by a sailor. He ued a long rope, throwing it upward until it caught upon a pi Ojecting point, then drawing himself up and again throwing his rope to a rock above He reached a height of about I 0 feet, when he was unable to lind any moro projections that would bold his rope, and came near novor reaching level ground alive. Ho was obliged to descend by the same means used in ellecting tho ascent When he finady got down ho was conjletely exhausted. Mis hands were bleeding and he was cut und scratched from head to foot Tho fishermen about the lake finally arrived at the conclu sion that the only way in which tho Held-glas and other plunder could bo secured would be by atta hinga line to a rock and firing it over the top of the pyramid from a mor tar.
