Long Estranged Couple Reconciled
Over the CorpBe of Their Son.
riili.AUKl.MiiA, Pa., December 2.X
pathetic story of the reconciliation of
a. man and wile, niter un estrange
ment of many years, was made public
here to-duy. The reunion at the couple
occurred over the body of their son, lo
whoso funeral the lather had been
summoned without his wife's knowl
edge. Andrew J'.iitrekin of this city was
called to Albany through a telegram
Informing him of the death of his son,
who had beeu killed by n railway train,
and hastened to that city. Although
aware that his wife, from whom he had
long been separated, was living In Al
bany, he had made no Inquiry about her.
They resided In New York when the
separation, growing out of jealousy on
his part and supposed Infidelity on the
part of his wife, took ph:e, tfio mother
tuklng the son, mid the father the daugh
ter. This was about twenty years ago,
and during that period they liave never
met, although Mrs. lintrekln

pallid face of the corpse, the falherkissed
the lips und bending down gave way to
the grief he could not repress. Mrs.
Kutrekln stood supported by her frieuds,
crying hysterically, and after kissing the
face of the dead boy sobbed aloud. As
she raised her head, her ey es met thoc of
her husband. The mourners withdrew,
and the undertaker closed the door quiet
ly. Instantly the wife rushed Into her
husband's arms, he met her advances in
the same spirit, uud a reconciliation fol
lowed. Mrs. Knirckln accompanied hei

A Mldsuminer Day in the Sooth.
Down upon the white sund-bar rising
out of tho buck wter of tho bayou the
July sunlight fiiils not in Jjenins, but iu
one prent shoot of torrid glory, lloro
ani there out of the glistening crystals
Hie jugged end of a stranded und im
1 .edded log projects, while seeming
eiiially lifeless nnd just us motionless in
tlm enervating- glare, alligators lie, with
open jaws, asleep.
Nearer the water's edgo tho snowy
smoothness is broken, in spots, by little
uunips oi iiueu sunn ociraving, winle
concealing, heaps of round shelless
eggs, out of whose filmy crusts after
awlnlo thero shall peep and then crawl
in stolid company, infant alligators and
In the shadows of overhanging trees
the parent turtles lio fixed upon the en
tangled driftwood. Hour after hour
they lie there motionless and still, only
suiiing, uuir uuu men, enuiigu to ia.i'
ly nip fin incautious lly from iimom
tlin swarms crawling over them.
The birds that hitliei to have seemed
deliant of repression,- now sit mute be
neath their leafy covers, ami, save
where a turtle slides from a log into the
glassy water, scarce a motion ruffles
the latent air.
Standing half in the water where its
great roots reach out darkly below tho
surface, looking like liige sleeping
snakes, a giant cypress rears its lolty
trunk far above its fellows of the forest.
An outstretching branch, ignorant of
verdure, is black with vultures jostlin
and snapping at each other in surly
, Starling nt some sudden but indefi
nite noise, they rise in iliglit, theirgreat
wings smiting the quiet uir with tho
sound of the wind that foreruns the
Some of them are content to wheel
about among the tree-tops ami alight
again upon the old cypress: others sail
away to distant parts of the forest; but
one, separating itself from the Hock,
rises awav up against the cloudless sky
as though bidding earth an eternal fare
Far above the ceaseless toil and strife:
the bickerings and tho dissensions; the
fruitless labor in unyielding fields, and
the envies and jealousies of unwinged
man. the bird soars and floats in von
vapory sea that is all unstained by
earth s insinuating sewage.
Oh! for the power thus to rie, if but
for a little while, and bo ut home in
Jo sound irora the Happing ol those
broad wings reaches the ear. A few
quick beats of them upon the higher air
send the graceful bird ou, and on, und
on, almost outstripping the swift shafts
of human vision. Then, behind an ob
truding leaf in the topmost limits of
the wood, it turns and, soon again, is
nearly overhead. It has heard the call
or seen the distant form of an approach
ing fellow of the tloek upon the cypress
trve, nnd meets it in mid-zenith.
back and forth the two companions
soar, crossing each other's flight ineay
glidings along tho spotless ultitud
Then, in mute accord, each leans a lit
tle to one side, so that the ent re stretch
of upper wing from tip to tip is seen,
J and thus, with expanded but tinmoving
wings, tliey circle round and round and
; round, as though propelled by an inner
hidden mechanism like those greut
, wanderers of tho nether blue that speed
their way aloug without a sign of smoke
And yet these creatures of such grace
ful wing soaring, soaring, soaring away
up yonder as though it were their mis
sion thus to leave tho earth and lloat
upon the air in heaven's environment,
now turn, descending from those
heights of purity to feast on carrion.
Yet stranger far than this it is when
men of noble guise and genius grand
do stoop from the vicinage of godlike
thought to batten on tho oll'al of foul
Now," like yon soaring birds, the radi
ant sun, descending from the unsullied
plain, in shame of countenance alights
at. last behind the forest in a loathsome,
noxious marsh; and thus the midyear
day departs and dies. Jamm li. Cable

Sick persons have been known toloso
all rcmt-mbranee of what has happened
to them during their sickness, nnd
trnnger still, of tho period innnedi
ttely preceding their sickness, while
easily recalling what went before and
followed after, says the London Qlobe.
Tho brain plays odd tricks with us
at times, especially when it has been
subjected to a sudden shock, nnd scien
tific men who think that its various
convolutions are the seats of various
faculties of tho mind derivo some con
firmation of their theory from the fact
that tho power of memory may fail
without any failure of general i'ntelli-
frcneo, and may fail in part without
icing altogether impaired.' A notable
instance of this last-mentioned peculi
arity occurred ubout a dozen years ago.
A lad in tho country was neeused of
throwing another into a pond, and ho
was jiut on his trial before a bench of
magistrates. -His elder brother, who
bore a higher character in tho villago
both for conduct and for mental shrewd
ness, had seen the previous struggle
between tho lads, and he was called
upon to givo evidence. Ho declared
his belief that the light was perfectly
fair throughout and that tho immersion
in the pond was tin accident. Ques
tioned as to what took place afterward,
lie could not speak to n single circum
stance. "Did the prisoner attempt to
rescue the deceased?"' tho Chairman
asked him. He could not say. "Tho
bench understands that you leaped in
to tho water nnd recovered tho body."
"They tell me so," he said, "but I havo
no recollection of it," "Tho Consta
ble has told us Unit you dived twice,
brought out the body, and curried it to
tho piirontV houso.' "I have not tho
slightest reineinbi'iinen. I only know
that I was nt home iu bed at 8 o'clock"
