'"There is no excuse for any one be
ing buried alive," saild l)r. W. A
Hammond. A Herald reporter had
called on him in reference to the buri
al alive of Miss Stikney, of Indian
apolis, who was takeun out of a vault
and found to be in a trance-state, and
did not die until several weeks after
her funeral.
"No," he continued, "there is no ex
case for it. The tests of death have
been brought down to such a point
that any 'omn!etent physician would
have no difficulty iti accurately deter
mining whether or not death had tak
ei place."
"Does decomposition always set in
after death?"
-"Invariably. proviled the body is
not frozen. Of course you can freeze
it and keep it for years before it will
deecompose-jupt as fish are kel,t
frozen for market. The salmon that
you eat now w.-re caught last spring,
and have len k-ept frozen ever since.
They are just as ood.'
"D)o vou iniaiinie that there is any
foundation to the belief of many that
people are sometimes huried alive?"
"Oh, I have no doubt of it. I have
known of its beine done, but it is not
hby any means of frequent occurrence-
not nearly so frequent as many peo
pie imagine. The physician is entirely
to blame when at does occur. Tile
fact that bodies Ihave ben found turn
ed ver in the cotlins lead pwople to
believe that they were buried alive.
But that's not so. It is probably the
work of the eases comine from the
body. Pent up in a collin they be
come very powerful, and it is almost
singular that they do Iot move
bodies around more than they do."
"Then you don't take any stock in
the stories of men who conie to
life under the eround, of their terrible
struggles to set free, and their horrible
death at last?"
"That's all bosh. Poe wrote ofgrave
wards trembling with the struggles of
the buried alive. That's all bosh, too.
When people are buried alive, as they
certainly have been, they never wake
up to knowit. When in a trancestate
their vitality must be so weak that
when they begin to regain conscious
nees and to attempt to breathe they
die of Rnffocatian immediately and
never know that they came to life
again. Buried for dead, they practi.
cally are dead.
"That's consolinz, at any rate,"
said the reporter, who was beginning
to feel a little "creepy" in the gloomy
room, that in his distorted imagina
tion began to seem like the interior of
a tomb. The doctor did not look un
like Father Time as he waved his
cimeter.
"This Miss Stickney was undoubt
edly in a trance-state when she wasi
buried," continued Dr. Hammond.
"Were it not for the water around her
heart she might have regained con
sciousness."
"Is it possible to freeze a human be
ing up for any length of time and then
restore cousciousuness?"
"No; not with a human being. It
can be done witahsome of the lower or
der oe animals. Frogs are the highest
rad to which it can be carried suc
SWhy can't it be done to men?"
"Because, no watter how warm or
bow cold the atmosphere is, the tem
Psrature of a human being in good
health is always 08 degrees in life. Re
duoe that temperature to the freezing
.oint and it would kill the person.
Cow, the temperature of a frog is al
ways the same as the surrounding
air. If the mercurygoes upto 110 de
gree the frog's temperature goes up
-there, too, without doing him any
.barm. In the same way it will go
down to zero and the frog will not
usind it. I have frozen a frog solid in
M block of ice, and after some tinme
thawed him out, and he would jump
il aroundl the room. A frog is very
hard to kill. You can take his heart:
out and he willstill live. Cut his head
-1, tickle him on oneside withastraw,
ad he wiil draw up the leg on that
SAdle and push the straw away."
.'"Is that parely mechanical action?"
*"No; it's because a fro's bramis are
eot all in his head; some of thema are
-a his spinal column, and it is t he lat
e that directs his lees. For that
matter, I believe the brains of a hu
--n beingare not all in t he head either.
Agiri plays the piano and carries on
aeonversation at the samne time. The
brains in her spine govern the action
of her hands, and the brains in her
head allows her to talk."
"Is it possible for men to go into
trances that could be mistaken for
death?"
; "Yes; it is quite certain that appar
sat cessation of all the vital functions
may take place without theentirelos
of vitality, which would leave the or
