LOWELL'S LATE ADDRESS,
DELIVERED AT THE CENTENNIAL
BANQUET TUESDAY NIGHT.
It Was Delivered In Reply to the Toast
on American Literature and is the
Verbatim Report of the Same His
Idea of It. ,
Tho following is a vorbatim report of
James ktisacll Lowell's reply to tho toast
on "American Llloraturo," delivered at
the Washington Centennial banquet Tues
day night last:
A needful frugality, benignant alike to
both tho participants in human utterance,
bus limited the allowance of each speaker
Ibis evening to tun minutes. Cut in
thicker slices, our littlo loaf of time would
not nulllco for all. This seems a ninagor
ration, but if we give to our life the
I'saluiist iiH'iimire of seventy yearu. and
bear in mind tho population of the globe,
a little ciphering w ill show that no uinn
and brother is entitled eveu to so large a
sharo of our attention m thin, 'Moreover,
how fow nre the men In any generation
who could not deliver tbo inoNsage with
which their good or evil genius has
clinwd thorn in less than a sixth part of
an hour? 1 am to speuk for literature and
of our own as forming now a recognized
part of it An exaggerate catimnto, un in
(liNcrimliiutnness of prniso which implies a
fear to sneak the truth would be uuwurthy
of myself or of you. I might, indued, road
over a list of names now, uUo, carven on
headstones sinco it would bo invidious
to Bpenk of the living. But tho list would
bu short, a 1 could call few of the mimes
great, as tho Impartial alluirs inuuauro
greatness. I shall prefer to usxtimo that
American literature was not worth speak
ing for ut all if it were not quite ubio to
speuk for itself, as all others aro expected
to do. 1 think this a commemoration in
which It is peculiarly fitting that literature
should lake part l or we are culubruting
today our true birthday as a nation, tho
day when our coiihcioiisiioms of wldor in
tt rests and larger posaihilitiee begun. All
that wont before wore birth throes. The
day also recalls us lo a sense of something
to which we aro too indiU'ereut. 1 mean
Unit historic continuity which, as a factor
In moulding national individuality, is not
only powerlul in itself, but cumulative in
its oKTiititm. Without the stimiilance of
a nationui consciousness no literature
could huvo coma into Doing nmler the
conditions in which we then wore, that
wus nut parasitic and tlependunt. With
out tlie continuity which slowly incor
porates that consciousness in the
general life ami thought no literature
could have airquirod strength to dottich
itself nml begin a li lo of its own. Hcarcely
hiul we become a nation when tho only
part of tho Old World whoso language we
understood begau to aak iu various tones
of dc.iptinili'iicy whero was our literature.
Wo could not improvi Virgils or Mil
tons, though we m.nlo obliging efforts to
do It. hailing in this, we thought tho
question partly unfair and wholly diaa
greeublo. Ami, Indeed, it had never been
put to several nations far older than we.
and to which a voles sneer had been
longer wanting. But iierhatis it wss not
altogether so ill-hiilured as it seemed,
for, after all. a naiion without n literature
is ImjM-rfeelly represented in tho parlia
ment of mankind. With a hiiiL-naim In
complin mid vaiiciy interior lo iionu that
has ever been the ni rii'iieht of human
thought or imtsioii or 1.1'iitimeiit, wo hail
inherited also tho forms mid precedents of
a literature altogether worthy of it. Hut
tliee fitriiiMiilid precedents we wereiondiipl
suddenly tu novel eoudilloua, themselves
still in Milutlon, tentative, formless, atom
groping slier atom, rather through blind
insiiiiei than with conscious iuikmi- why
Wonder if our Uik tj'mvcil as Inn? ns
tlillicult? And it was all Uie more dillieult
that we were temptiHt to free out wives
from the form ns well ss from llm apirit.
Ami we hail other iiolnlile liiiidiiiuecs.
Our rvailiiig class was small, s"ittlered
thinly along the seaboard, mid its wants
were lully suplied Inuu abroad, either bv
iniHirtatioii or piracy. Communication
was tedious and coatly. Our mun of let
ters, or raUier our men with a natural
impulsion to a life of letters, wero few and
isolated, ami I raliiiut recollect that iso
lation baa produced anything in literature
U'lter I hail monkish chronicles, except a
Latin hymn or two, and one precious
botik, the treasure of bruised spirits.
Criticism, there was none, and what as
sumed its (unction was a frothy mixture of
patriotism ami incoiiiiM'tctice. Abovo all
we had do capital toward which all tlie
streams of moral and intellectual energy
might converge lo till a reaervoir on which
all might draw. There were many careers
'h u lo ambition, nil ol them more tempting
ami mom gainful llinii the making of
lioiiks. Our latipbi were of necemity
largely intent on material ends, and our
scivskiiuis from Furoe tended to increase
this predisMMilinn. Consitlenng all these
things, it is a wonder that, .in tin so 100
years, we should have protluceil any liter

A Low Land Drainage Lot Assessed at
Very High It jurts.
The lot of land owned by Mrs. Annie
Fisher, relictof the lute Thomas A. Fisher,
located at the cornor of Hawley street
and Jones avenue, is an unlucky bit of
property for its owner.
It is about 150 feet wide by 175 feet
long, and nearly half of it bus long sorved
the city as a drain ago sewer or in place of
one. Of luto It has been covered with water
to the depth of two or three feet, and nu
merous citizens of the locality are benefit
ted by the drain. ago this bit of ground
afTords to the adjacent property.
When Assessor Smith went over that
section ho recorded the value of Mrs.
Fisher's lot at the enormous sum of $.",000,
and that ludy hearing of it too late to havo
a remedy applied, failed to get it reduced
to the proper sum, therefore the taxgnth
orer has the lot in his clump in a way that
makes it a debntiiblo question whether or
not property thus burdened is worth own
ing. Mrs. Fisher would be willing to pay on
a J:i,(KK) valuation, though that would bo
oxecssivo, but rvniiy there Is room to ex
tend the relief she asks for. It
may bo of some advantage to
her proporty if the city authorities will
tiso the chain gang to fill up tho lot and
thereby increase its value. The low
ground of the viciuago must bo filled at
some lime or auother, and it might just as
well bo done in tho near future. 1'crhaps
Assessor Kiuilli's oversight will be rectilled
somo day, for it will bear hard on the ludy
until it is.

SHE AROSE FROM DEATH.
A ST. LOUIS WOMAN WHO JDST
ESCAPED BEINO BURIED ALIV&
She la Pronounced Dead by Physicians,
Plaoed In Her Ooffln, When the Voioe
or Her Little Son Awakens Her She
St. Louis, Mo., May 3. An afternoon
paper prints a sensational story of a case
of catalepsy reported from South St Louis,
the name being suppressed for the alleged
reason that tho victim was so weak that
the excitement certain to be aroused by a
knowledge ef her identity and consequent
calls by curious neighbors would bo fatal.
The story is to the eUect that a young mar
ried woman, twenty-three yeurs of age,
was in hor coffin and about to be taken
out for burial, w hen hor husband saw hor
arm move. Ho ordcrod hor taken out of
the coflin at onco and called Irr two physi
cians who, after an examination, pro
nounced lifo not extinct, and began a pro
cess of resuscitAtlon. Their efforts were
successful and the woman was in a
short time brought back to consciousness.
This story was obtuined from hor sister, a
young iniirriod woman, who lives at 71
South Fourth street, Tlie sister rolatod
the following facts in connection with tho
Lost Monday my sister, w ho had boon
sick but a fow duys, died, as far as we
could sec, aud tbo otlending physician
pronouncod her dead, and Iter husband
proceeded to make arrangements for the
funeral. A coflin was secured, and when
the supposed corpse was dressed it was
laid iu the coflin. The intention was to
have tho funeral Tuesday afternoon.
Friends of the family visited the bouse,
and mourned over tlie body from which
the spirit had, it was believed, departed.
On Tuesday afternoon, a short tinio be
fore the closing of the cotlin was to have
taken pince, my brother-in-law was stand
ing besido the bier looking on the face of
his wife when bis little boy csmo into tho
room aud said: "1 want to see mamma."
Just then the arm of my sister moved.
Her husband saw it aud was natunilly
very much startled, lie informed thoso
In the room in an excited manner of
whnt he had seen, and my Bitter was at
once taken from tho collin and placed on
a bed and two physicians summoned.
They placed a gloss in front of my sis
ter's face, and all could at once perceive
the signs of breath on it They then be
gnu to work with her, and after a short
while more positive signs of life Iwgaa to
appear, hhe kept getting better all tbe
time, until Dually she became conscious.
The most terrible feature aliout it all is
that she knew perfectly everything that
was going on aiound her. When ahe wus
being dressed for burial she realized what
waa being done, and iricd her best to show
signs of life, but could not do so. When
she was placed in the collin an awful feel
ing of what was to be her doom
ciimo over her, ahe says, and she
tried to scream, and she thought
that sho hail succeeded, but, of couse,
she did not When she came lo and re
luted to us an account of the mental tor
ture alio had exHricucet during the ti mo
her trance hinted, she said: "Where
were you all when I swutned?" We
told her that she bad not screamed or we
surely would have board her. "Well."
she said, "1 tried to scream and thought
that once I bad succeeded in emitting s
shriek." When she was lying in the
collin she tried to move but faiiod until
her little child came running into the
room and asked to look at her. Then her
arm crumiaid, and her husband, who was
standing by the collin, fortunatuly hai
itenetl to see it. Had he not she' would
have been hurried nlive.
The story was further corroborated bv a
Mr. Man w ig. a grocery keeper at K27
Ninth Fourth stnt'l, who said ho saw the
girl who told Iho story, dressed iu black
und crying, going by his store Monday,
and when his wife asked tier w hat the
matter was she said her sister was dead
and sho was going to the funeral. Miu
afterward told them tho story of her sister
being brought back to lifo. All effort to
am-rtaln the name of the woman who
came so near being buried alive or the
names of the physicians lu attendance
huvo thus far failed.
