"I. must go, and shall," he de clared. So his friends assisted him to his carriage, and he was driven, more dead than alive, to the bedside of the dying robber.

We envy not the princely man, In city or in town, Who wonders whether the pumpkin vines Turn up the hill or down. . We care not for his marble halls, Nor yet his heaps of gold; We would not own his sordid heart For all his wealth twice told. We are the favored ones of earth, We breathe pure air each morn, We sow, we reap the golden grain, We gather in the corn. -We toil we live on what we earn, And more than this we do We hear of starving millions round, And gladly feed them too. . The lawyer lives on princely fees, Yet drags a weary life, ' He never knows a peaceful hour, His atmosphere is strife. A merchant thumbs his yard-stick o'er, Grows haggard at his toil, lie's not the man God meant him for; , Why don't he till the soil? - The doctor plods through storm and rain riods at his patient's will; . When dead and gon", he plods again To get his lengthy bill. The printer bless his noble soul 1 He grasps the mighty earth, And stamps it on his daily sheets ' . To cheer the laborer's heart We sing the honor of the plow, And honor to the press Two noble instruments of toil, Each with a power to bless. The bone, the nerve of this fast age, True wealth of humankind; One tills the ever-faithful earth, The other tills the mind. SAINTS AND SINNERS. What came of a Broad-Gange Con tribution to an Orthodox Church in Greencastle, Indiana. Our usually quiet city is in the enjoyment of a local sensation, which, while it makes sinners laugh, cannot but make the saints grieve. Your reporter will pre mise by stating that the Metho dists of Greencastle have just completed a handsome temple of worship, costing $20,000, contri buted in part by members of oth er denominations. Among the subscribers to the building fund was William Bridges, a stock buyer by occupation, but a Uni ycrsahst by profession. "Now, if there is anything that Bridges i3 wedded to, even to the sacri fice of his floclc and herds, it is his religious belief. Tie not only believes in the doctrines of the Broad-gauge church, but in pro pagating them at all times and under all circumstances. So, when the disciples of Wesley ap proached Mr. B. for a donation he gave them 100 on condition that Rev. Curry, a brother Uni versalist, should be permitted to preach three, different sermons Oil such subject as he might choose in the new building. The conditions were accepted, so Bridges states, and the money paid in accordance with the terms agreed upon. One of the three sermons has already been deliv ered, and the way parson Curry poured hot shot into the ortho dox camp was a caution to his new-made friends. They say they want "no more such preach ing." His subject was, "Why I am a Uni versa list." The parson - the second of the course on Tuesday evening, the subject of which is.

All his life-time he had been known as a sound bus iness man, and oft and again his fellow-citizens had come to Vim for business advice. He was dying in his old age, but yet his intellect was bright and sound. When he knew that he had but a few hours to live he called his only son to him and said : ' George, I am going to die, and before I go I want to speak a few words with you. Yon have neither trade nor profes sion; you simply wander up and down, squandering all your money. In the last ten years I have given you over 12,000. What has become of it?' "Gone up the spout I" was the mournful reply. "But I shall not upbraid you," continued the father. "I have made a will. I had five lawyers at work for a week, and I be lieve it is sound.. I am worth half a million dollars. I have willed you one-fourth of this a mount, and given your moth er "You haven't gone and willed her the big cud, have you?" in terrupted the son. ' "George, I thought it was best, and now I ask you to promise me that "Can't do it can't do it, father l" possibly "George, won't you promise me to stop drinking?" "Oh, that's it? Yes, father, I promise with all my heart. I thought you wanted to bind mc not to set up a plea of insanity and bust that will into the mid dle of next week in about a York minute. Go on, father." How Mirrors are Silvered. The following description of "silvering"" plate, glass for mir rors is mainly founded upon the method of St. Cobin Ravenhead. After polishing, each glass tab let intended to make a looking glass is silvered, or, more cor rectly, coated on one side with an amalgam of tin. In the prep- from the finest tin, and possess a surface similar to ihat of pol ished silver. The art of silver ing is simple,and merely requires dexterity. The glass plate hav ing been thoroughly cleaned of all grease and dirt with putty powder and wood ash, the work man proceeds to lay a sheet of tinfoil upon the table, carefully pressing out with a cloth dabber all wrinkles and places likely to form air bubbles. . He spreads over it a quantity of mercury, taking care that all parts are e qually covered, and then the glass plate is pushed gently on the surlace, commencing at one edsre. Tne glass is allowed to remain for twenty-four hours. It is then removed to a wooden incline, similar to a reading desk, to allow of the excess of mercury draining off. - As the amalgam gradually sets, the incline is in creased, till finally the plate reaches the perpendicular, when the process is finished, and the mirror removed to the storeroom. Too Much Faith. Traveling on one of our rail roads, a little four year-old-lump of boy humanity kept his father and mother in a chronic state of uneasiness by continually thrusting his head out of the window to explore the outer world. All remonstrances and threats were unayailing. Finally a bright idea struck the father. "Fred, Fred," he said, "keep your head in or the wind will take your hat," ' And in order to frighten the little one he carefully slipped the hat off his head and concealed it. As soon as this had been done, the child commenced cry ing, and could not be appeased. Finally pater familias told him to look in an opposite direction and he would whistle the hat back agahl all of which was neatly done, and the happy par ents settled back in their seats and began to converse very pleas antly, thinking that they had cured little Freddie. But not &o, for in a vcrv short time he seem ed to briarhten up suddenly, and away he sent his hat through the n.nr window, shouting aa it dis appeared, "Papa, whistle again!"

"A few weeks ago I was has tily summoned to see a little girl who had been taken sudden ly ill, and, after carefully exam ining the case, I pronounced her dying. I called in a prominent brother physician, who chanced to be close by, but scarcely had he entered the room when to all appearances life had taken its slit. We , sat beside the corpse fully half an hour trying to solve the sudden and unac countable cause of death, and then, after examining the body, pronounced the child dead. And so it seemed for two hours, when to the surprise of every one, the child 6at up and asked its moth er if supper was ready, as it was hungry. In this case I had made out its death certificate, and, had the undertaker been as prompt a3 I was, the child would have been frozen 6tiff be fore it could get a chance to ask for something to eat. "A few days ago I was sum moned to see a body, just be fore burial, which had been de layed until a physician could be called to see whether the per son was dead or alive; and when I learned that it had been in an ice casket for two days and two nightsT, of course, told the fam ily at once that life had forever departed. One of the brothers exclaimed, 'Then our brother has been frozen to death.' In this case tho body had been sent home in an ice casket. "Is it not bimply shocking to civilized humanity that such gross indecencies as freezing our dear dead ones is oitou practic ed before ample time has been given to know whether they be dead or if it is only a case of suspended animation? "Iu the November number, 1879, of the Medical Investiga tor, the following case is re ported from FreelandsvillCjInd.: " 'What is considered a re markable case of trance has hap pened here lately. The victim is Miss Feihlam, the daughter of a well-to-do farmer residing near this place. The facts, briefly as possibly, are these: Miss Feihlam, whoseamily are Catholic, ' retnrned from the school of Notre Dame, Ind., last December. Since her re turn she has been very ill in health, seeming to be generally aflected, moaning and tossing in fever at night. Immediately after the late cold epcll she was attacked with pneumonia, now so fatally prevalent in this re gion. Notwithstanding she had the best medical attendance to be procured in this vicinity, 6he died on Monday, March 31, 1879, or at least apparently died, for so the physicia.is pronounc ed her. " 'Were it not for the fact of Mis3 Feihlam being an only child, it is probable she would have been buried immediately, but, as it was, it was decided to hold the corpse until relatives from Ohio, who had been sent for, could arrive, This delayed the burial until March 8th. The funeral was to take placo at 2 P.M. A MOTHER'S GLAD DISCOVERT. "'At that time, as the friends and relatives were taking the last look, the corpse not yet hav ing been taken from the horse, the motner, oeing me. last io . A review the remains oent over the body, and, uttering a cry, declared that she saw the eye lids move as if in life. The father, with the friends, com menced immediately to try by gentle movements to withdraw her from the room, 'lhcy had nearly accomplished this when the corpse, to the surprise of all, suddenly arose nd assumed a sitting posture in tlic comn. '"Miss Feihlam is said, by those who witnessed the scene, to have gazed around with va cant, surprised stare, and then, unlike cases of trance usually, to have sank back apparently exhausted. " 'She was immediately re moved and placed in bed, but was, perhaps, three hours before she was conscious enough to give anv account of herself. 2 s simifmTvzxnsszm The period site pacd in trance she is perfectly dead to, seem ing a perfect blank. " 'The last she remembers was before her apparent death, when lying in bed, and t'i3 in tervening space is to her a dreamless sleep. Jjad she re sided in one of our large chit s our modern undertaker would have frozen her so stiff that re turning life would have been a thing impossible;' "The New York Herald, late ly," continued Dr. Shertzer, "re ports a case of small-pox patient who had to all appearance's died and was about being buried .at the cemetery when he groaned and came to life again. Fortu nately for this patient, owing to the nature of his disease, he es caped the modern icebox. "I personally know several cases of 'suspended animation. where parties narrowly escaped alive or frozen. Some months ago I called to see a child patient on South Cen- ral Avenue, of this city, and was informed that it was dead. I found that it had been washed and laid out, awaiting the un dertaker and his ice-box. . Af- er a careful examination I felt convinced that it was a case of "suspended animation," had it put in bed, surrounded with bottles of hot water. In course of an hour it revived and is liv ing to-day. "At present I am attending a young lady, who apparently died, and whne getting ready o lay her out (washing her with hot water) she returned to life and bids fair to live manyyears yet. I remember when a boy Dr. Abraham HolT, of Harford county, died, and while , tho minister was preaching his fu neral sermon the third day af- er his apparent death, he came o, and I believe i3 still living in the neighborhood of Mill Green, Harford county. It is useless to say, the ice-box wa3 not in fashion in those days. I remember two cases in hospital practice during the war who narrowly escaped being buried alive. "In a late report from Paris, France, where 6ome ten thou sand dead bodies had been re moved from a burying-ground. o give way to modern improve ments, unmistakable evidence was produced that ono hundred and ninety-seven had been bur ied alive. "Dr. V. Vandcrpoel, 42 West Twenty-sixth street, NcwYork, reports the case of a Brooklyn )atieut, and the widow of a well known doctor of divinity. She had an attack of dysentery, and had been lying ill for four W CD or five days with a low fever, but icr condition was not danger ous, although it was assuming a yphoid form. He called to see tier at 1 o'clock and returned at o the same day, when, to his urprisc and indignation, she wa3 lying in an ice-box down stairs partially frozen. "The undertaker had com mitted this atrocity without any medical certificate of her death, and ho had no official knowl edge that she had died at all. He found that after he had left she arose from her bed and faint ed while walking across the floor, from sheer weakness and because she lay there motionless, the children thought she was dead; so, instead of sending for the doctor to make an examina tion, they ran for an undertaker. He responded with like promp titude, bringing in his mortuary box full of pounded ice, and in a short timo she was frozen stiff. The doctor believes that she might have revived had proper means been employed for her resnstication. "I attended," said the same gentleman, "another patient in mi." i r, j u . a ion imrij-iuuiiu bliucl, in iuri. She was a healthy lady, about fifty years of age, and her house was but five doors from my own. She was perfectly well at six o'clock in the evening. She went to bed as usual. In tho night she was taken ill and I . was called over to the house by an other physician for consultation at six o'clock in the morning... After doing what wo could I and get my breakfasts The oth er doctor retired 6oon after wards, as he found he coald not be of any immediate service. I returned at nine o'clock and found her not in bed, but in tho back parlor, inclosed in an un-' dertaker's chest. From what I knew of the character of her case, it was one in which re turning consciousness would bo' almost certain to follow a period of sinking away of life, or sus pended animation, that should have been one. The undertak er's excuse was that mortifica tion might set in, while he ought to have known that it takes twelve hours for animal life to leave the body after death and before decomposition can net in.
