A charming widow-owns a nice boy and a man
c i wants xoi-be appointed deputy' father to the lad. It was
u only last Sunday, that, 'while the" man' was strolling
with the lad, he asked : "Bab, does your mother. bang
her hair? and the fool answered: aOh, no; but you
f. ought to see her bang dad's head, : Guess the minister
didn't know everything when! he told pap to. prepare
to die. Prepare, why he was just aching to die,"
thority in the -world, he left a last legacy to
the medical, profession, in rtho , following lines
which he requested his brethren of, the Jjancet
to publish, whenever angina ' pectoris should
strike his death blow :
'I die a Chiistian, in the now, I fear,; much despis
ed sense of that term, a simple believer in Jesus
Christ as a personal, living and loving Saviour, with
out any righteousness of my own, but perfect and
secure in His; and that 'I know in whom I believed,
and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which
I have committed unto Him until that day.'
JThe touching comment by his editorial com
rade, upon these solemn and pathetic words
from beyond theyeil, is written as follows :
'The physician who in his own person consciously
bears about with him the poignard that shall put a
period to his existence, even feels its sharp point at
his heart; knows when and how it will strike , him;
sees the shadow of death thrown distinctly across his
path, by each gleam of the sunshine so joyous to
those around him. The man whoTbeing thus haunted,
is not all his lifetime subject to bondage, must have
that within him which surpasses mere human
strength, or be steeped in a Lethe of forgetfulness
impossible to understand.
We know the treasures of knowledge acquired by
such men are not lost, but their own share of the
fruits of labor- what becomes of that? Why. are
they deprived of their reward ?
f Questions like these will rise unbidden in the
mind; in days of narrow-minded and shortsighted
materialism, when scientists seem to exult in destroy
ing the fond lWpe of immortality,' while' they have
nothing to offer in the stead of this aspiration; When
there is a growiag disposition to scoff at all that lies
beyond the horizon of sense, or outside 1 Nature, and
it is counted a triumph of intellect to believe in
nothing which cannot be demonstrated by the puny
appliances and processes science has already discov
ered it is unwise to rebuke these questionings of
the inner soul of man. a veritable eternity, albeit the
principle we feel within is not to be laid bare by the
scalpel of the anatomist, or brought under the phy
siologists here.
"In the name of science and humanity, let us have
more of this spirit of hope and confidence in the
Future, for it enables men to , bear the ills of life
placidly, to do its work honestly and earnestly ; it
cheers the spirit in life, and helps it to gaze calmly
on the dread visage of Death,' and to meet him
cheerfully in the hour of his triumph.' '
London Lancet, June 14, 1879.
'The time has come to speak out boldly on this .
subject, and we are persuaded the good sense and
.self-respect of the profession will approve the pro
test against that spirit of restless izitagonism to t the
claims of religion which has unhappily obtained
fuller expression in a small section of our ranks dur
ing the last few years, and whioh if not repudiated,
must be expected to increase.
; 'We agree that the physician should not usurp the
functions of the minister of religion; but he is for
bidden by the spirit of manliness' 'to take refuge in
the opposite extreme of moral cowardice, with a pre

"The moral influence of the physician must
be an enormous social force. It radiates by
the bedside, and attends upon his footsteps in
his daily rounds. By its purity andj devotion
to the loftiest interest of man, it will lift fellow-men
to higher and nobler lives ; or alas !
in its pride and vanity,' it will t deaden i the
faith and chill the hopes of those whose bodies
he would cure. - . X' ':
"Jeremy Taylor quaintly but beautifully
said : ,
'And what greater measure can We have than, that
we should bring joy to our : brother, who, with his
dreary eyes, looks to heaven and round about, and
cannot find so much rest as to lay his eyelids' close
together than, that thy tongue should be tuned witn
heavenly accents, and make the weary soul to listen
for light and ease; and when he perceives that there
is such a thing in the world, and in the order of
things, as comfort and joy, to begin to break out
from the prison of his sorrows at the door of sighs
and tears, and by little and little melt into showers
and refreshment ? This is glory1 to thy voice, and
employment fit for the brightest angel." h "'
"But the moral influence of 'the' physicians
of our land must be invoked,' for "its "exercise
on a wider plane than ever, for the preserva
tion of ! societv against the inroads of ' doctrines
that threaten to 1 reduce all limits and cbndi
tions, ana ail taw, numan or uivme, to cnaos.

A. Living Express Package. All sorts
of queer things are carried by the
railroad companies nowadays, bat the oddest
piece of freight that has been seen in Pitts
burg for a long time, passed through on Sat
urday. A chubby, round-face, bright looking
boy, eleven years old, named Casay Pemmel,
arrived in this city on Saturday evening, in
the care of the messenger of the Baltimore
and Ohio Express Company. He had trav
elled as a piece of express matter from some
place far away in Texas. He had a paper
tag tied to him, just as though he were a bag
of potatoes, and on the tag was written the
address of hi consignee. He was entered
on the way-bills and manifests just like any
other. freight, and as he passed from the hands
of one express messenger to another he was
duly receipted lor This living express Jbun
dle left Texas on Tuesday, and has been well
taken care of. ' With Casey ; was a package
containing some money, a baggage check and
a ticket over the Pennsylvania Railroad from
Pittsburg to Philadelphia. When the boy
wanted anything to eat or desired some
other reasonable object the messenger took
sufllcient money from the package to pay for
it and charged it on a bill which was with it.
Casey was placed on board a passenger train
on the Pennsylvania Road on Sunday, and
is now jpobably safe in the hands of his
friendB.Pitt8burg Post, Aug. 23.
