Another phy sici&n was next summoned, but he was sick, ana unable to turn out in the storm, and a third, be ing applied to, positively rofusod to go. In this dilemma, the money was obtained tendered to the first physician, but he cusod himself, and declined to leave his domicil, gly quartered, and go to the relief of the suffering woman. As a lsst resort, from Delraar. who went, y, was I .auivi and whore ho w & physician but the lateness of the honr at whioh he called in rendered it impossible for him to afford a: relief, and tho woman died died, in the most exermüitiug torture. Ho gave it as his professional opinion, however, that, had medical aessistauce been renderod, at find, the woman would have safely survived her maternal peril. This is a sad story.
