Tou ara invited to be present ot (he resurrection of oar friond Athanaao Chap uzot, artist, which la to take pluoo at bis own residence, Rao do Venus 3, Batig nolles, Monday, Feb. IS, at 10 p. m., pre cisely." The nwurrectkm of ChaptuoU Bow is this? ' Cliaptizot was then deadl I thought lie bad.siinply gone to Amorlcat What strange adventure is this? "Parbleu," said 1 musingly, after a few moment's reflection. "Why puzzle uay brain over it, when a tow hours' patience will explain the whole mattor? Yes, to day is Monday, Fob. 13, 10 o'clock in the morning. "Lot us waitr I did wait, bat very impatiently, and nt 0&0 in the evening was at 23 Venus ntreet, Batignnllos, in the little court at the end of which stood tho well known pavilion inhabited by Athanase Chapuzot for the paat ten years. The door wns njnr. I ascended the winding and creaking stairway which led to his studio with a rapid stop and found myjolf in the presence of fivo per sons. One of these approuchod mo aad extended his hand. This was Durocher, the notary. Upon a sofa in tho back end of tho studio I recognized Dr. Pourpar dot and the sculptor, Roger Lacost, seat ed cloeo together conversing in a sub dued tone. All three, like myself, were intimate friends of tho artist Chapuzot Near tho window stood two persons erect, motionless, obHcrvant. As 1 strained my eyea to distinguish their features Durocher, with a slight cere monial 'gesture, presented us, suying-as ho did so: . "Mesara. Stockfish "Stockfish & Co., Boston, Mass., U. a A." The Messrs. Stockfish both bowed po litely. I did tho same. "Gentlemen," said Dr. Pourpardot, on rising from tho sofa, "our number is now complete: we will proceed to re move the seals. " "What sealer' I demanded, with tho air of one considerably mystified "A very proper question," said Roger Lacost, coming forward; "we must not forget that our friend bore knows noth ing obout the matter. It belongs to you. Durocher, in your legal capacity, to ex plain to him what has thus far trans pired," "Which is as follows," replied the no tan'. "Four months ago wo were hero, Pourpardot, Lacost and myself, guests of Chapuzot to asocial tea. xou were ar sent from Paris, and consequently could not be included among tho guests. These two gentlemen, the Messrs. Stockfish, picturodealers of Boston, presented thom selves, on a matter of business, as they were to leave the next morning for America, and had nearly concluded a large transaction with oar friond. A few minutes before their arrival Cha puzot, who had been present tho evening before at one of rourpadot's clinic lect ures, spoko with a lively appreciation of the singular cases or catalepsy no nau aeon there. The conversation was con tinued after the arrival of the two merchants, and Pourpardot, in proof of his theory and assertion, referred to the cractice of tho fakirs of India, who per mitted themselves to bo interred while living and wero resuscitated ton or twelve weeks after. "This statement was received with general expressions of incredulity. The Messrs. Stockfish especially refused per sistently to put any faith in it, and pro nounced the whole thing a mere feat of skillful Jugglery and coUusioa. Where upon Chapuzot, wltn wnoae impetuous temperament yoo are all familiar, cried outt " 'Do von doubt It, gentlemen? Weill I will lay a wager that I can furnish the p": .. 'ilowr waa Uie aniwus inquiry. 'Br rrueevtinif here in this wide awake Paris tbe wonderful feat ot the "Indian faklra."' Tor what wager?

In thkt we were deceived. "Cbarrusot had spoken Is all eYrioos ixeaa. Nothing eoold move him or in any way make hizn recede front his craxy pujjMjaja. -At the beginnint; os Drormbrr. when the Mraxn.

This waa carefully lined throughout with varuea cotton on wiucn restea nnety pre pared lamb skins with their wool "In this box he practiced remaining shut np, st first for s few minutes, then gome hours, then some days. Thetlmo passed in this way, and be employed himself in meditating on divinity ac cording to the lnsplntuou directed in tho acred books of the Hindoo religion. "Every day he also accustomed him Bell to remain suspended with his foot In tbe sir and his hoad toward the floor, and curved the point of his tongue back ward so as to cover tho entrance of tli6 larynx and Interrupt his respiration. As to nourishment, he restricted himself to the smallest amount of vegetable diet, the quantity of which ho reduced from day to day. i "The 14th of December lost, at 8 o'clock in the evening, wo were present hero all five of us. Tho lost conditions of the wager were mado known by .mo in plain terms and the stipulated en gagements of the agreement signed by both parties. Chapuzot was to remain two months inclosed in tho box, com pletely deprived of sir, light and nour ishment "I now commit to our friend Dr. Pour pardot, whose medical status renders him more competent for tho task, to do- tail to you what further was done. "And in doing so I will be ss brief ae possible," said Pourpardot "Athanase Chapuzot seated himself upon the floor, upon a square of linen, his limbs crossed, his face turned to the east Then he W Ron to squint, forcing tho pupils of his eyes to converge by steadily fixing them on tho point of his nose, inducing, as it were, a state of artificial strabismus. In a very few minutes magnetic catalepsy began to show itself. His oyes closed and his extremities becamo rigid. While this was occurring ho distinctively guvr utterance to tlio following words, which we nil recognize as one lino of s verse and tho beginning of anothert Trioupbes done enfln cobole ennotnlea, J'cutrex epontaneineut Qo did not finish, but fell at once in a deep sleep. I drew near and plugged np both his nostrils with pieces of linen dipped in melted wax. This dono I in closed his whole person in tho linen cloth on which ho sat and tied tho four corners over his head, like a sack. Tho knot modo in this way was carefully sealed and stamped with tho signet ring of the house of Btockfiuh & Co., of Boston. Fi nally wo placed the body of our friend in tho box prepared for its reception, which was closed and locked, and which Messrs. Stockfish also sealed and stamped with the signet ring, as before mentioned. "After this we all left, carefully secur ing the door, or which tho Boston iner' chunt retained the key. "For every person but ourselves, the artist Athanoso Chapuzot had departed for America. Wo huvo today reached tho 15th of February, 1800. The hour uf 10 is about to strike Our friend Chapu zot hus boon inclosed in this box exactly two months, and wo propose now to pro ceed to release him." "Where is this boxT I demanded. "Under tho pieco of Oriontal tapestry on which you Bit," said Pourpardot I aroso with a bound. "Ton see, gentlemen," added tho doc tor, on removing the pieco of tapestry, "the seals are intact as fur as the box is concerned." The box was now opened, and in a moment tho body of Chapuzot, still en velopod in tho sack, wai placed in a large tub which stood in the middle of the room. A vessel filled with water sim mered on the stovo. Pourpurdot filled a can with this warm water and poured it slowly on the top of the sack. He then broke the seal cautiously and revealed to our sight as he removed the linen cloth the corpse of Athanoso Chapuzot, emo ciutad And shrunken liko an apple ex posed to the snows and frosts of tho post winter. "You can satisfy yourselves, gentle men," said Pourpardot, "tlmt the body is cold, that no pulse can be felt at the wrists, nor even in tho region of the heart" Ho then jioured s large quantity of hot water on him, and coinmonced a vigor ous friction or massage irom ucau to foot This done he applied a thick paste of almost burning temperature to the top of his head and removed tho waxed tam pons from his nostrils, opened Chapuzof s mouth and replaced Ids tongue to ita nor mal position so ss to admit air in the larynx. After the application of tbe tntrd not poultice to his head Chapuzot moved slightly, and a feeble pulse was percopti- ble at the wrist Boon after be opened his eyea and slowly pave utterance to these four words In s distinct voice: "aai paya des motnaa " "He completes his distich V cried Ro ger Lacost, "after sixty days interval. This is marvelous r M. Stockfish ha1 alrosdy drawn his plethoric chock book from his pocket "Here ts your check, monsieur, aaia be, handing s piece of bluish paper to Durocher. "We have lost We pay." Stockfish Junior touched the elbow of Ua brother and drew him to the corner of the stadia, where they coo vera! a moment In s low voice. After s few tntnates they returned to ae, when the elder said: "Orntlctneo. roar excellent friend M. Chapasot snort be at rceaect very mock fatigued.

THE ADVANTAGES OF MACADAM. Interacting roluta Advnnoed by Sumaol R, Downing. At a recant meeting of tho Pennsylva nia State grange at narriuburg, Worthy Past Lecturer S. R. Downing delivered an address of Interest to.all who care for the improvement and preservation of highways. In tbo course of his remarks Mr. Downing soldi A not very roady musician knows how tlresomo It may be to compass a new tuno and how easy to lapse Into tho old airs. And so with new ideas, policies or economies. The old idea is cherished, fondled and em- braced until there Is jealousy of the new. Thus, when an essayist points out that a macad am road is not a piko, that a mac adam can be built for less than pikes havo cost, that a macadam BAMCEL R. DOWNING. costs lens for - repair, and that it is the most oconomio road, somo very good people will not so much as wrentlo with the now saying, but, clinging to the old ideal, will srguo that inasmuch as pikes aro rough, macadams must bo rounhi Inasmuch as pikes aro built below frost, macjiilama must tto so built; that inasmuch as tlto nainr nnrnuient -n. has cost as much as (5,000 per mile, and, because of its coarso construction, (100 per mile annually for repair, that con soquently a maohino crustier, roller made macadam structure must cost the samo (3,000 per mile) for the making and tho same (8100 per mile) for annual repair. It is becoming usual to call pikes macadamized roads. A macadam road is not a pike, in that the macadam Is in finitely better and less expensive than roads heretofore culled pikes. Tho imperfections of a pike are: First In that it is composed of loose stouo in its making and repairing. Thus the pressure a pike receives from passing wheels deepens Into rub. A rut onco made, nlthough filled and refilled, will reappear. Second Pikes havo been constructed of hammered stone. Hammered stone is too coarso for the best superstructure of roads. The originator of the macadam principle stated beforo a committee of tlto honso of commons that a stono road was a saving of repair in ratio with the fineness of the stono used. Thus a bod of one Inch stono would cost in repair of such bed but one-half ot that of a bed of two inch stone. Again, s pike composed of hand broken stono may have cost $j,000 ir milo for building, and 100 per milo an nually for repair 83.000 per mfie for buildinc. because the stono was hand- broken, at 81 per perch, and $100 annu ally for repair, because the superstruc ture was coarse and loose. Thus ruts are started and are expensive to erase. Tho experience of macadam builders teaches that s rut will follow a rut, tliut is If s stono bed is laid upon s rutted clay baso ruts will appear In the stono bod directly over those of the cluv foundation. Thus one rut in o pike la tho predecessor of an end lees scries of ruts and an endless bill of costs. On the other hand, s macadam struc ture sroids these Imperfections of s pike in that (Drat) its superstructure is com posed of small atone and stone aiftings or chips, and (second) while wheels press the unknitted, looeo surface or s pike, and reach solidity within one track at two inches below tlto general surface, thus formliur ruts, the roller used in truacsdarn structure does exactly what wheels do, but further. It presses the entire surface of the bed, so far as wheels can penetrate, in ruts, and thus makes Uie entiro bed as solid as tho base of a rut Thus, again, s macadam is ao uni formly reaistant of wheel prmnure that ruts cannot be produced in aotne mao adsm within s period probably often ycaxa.

The adherence ta Latin is little more that a profession-, al affectation at best, and it involves chances of mistake and mischief which ought to be removed. Globe Democrat Animate ns to cheerfulness.
