4n Kplsode In Which Morocco and This
Country Take a Hand.
Ono dull afternoon in tho month ol
September last year, Abraham, a hand
somo young Jew, presented himself at'
our oilico, and stated that ho was about
to sail that evening for America, where
ho had previously resided for somo time,
thereby becoming an American citizen.
Tho object of his visit was to solicit our
assistance in drawing up a power of at
torney in favor of a friend, also an
American citizen, in whoso hands he
desired to k'nro his interests at homo
duiing his abunco. Tho document was
duly signed and witnessed", and tho
youth that same afternoon left his na
tive shoro to seek his fortune in tho far
off land of his adoption.
After the labse of a fewmonths tho
friend who hold tho power of attorney
called to ask our advice under the fol
lowing circumstances: Abraham, before
ho left, had fallen in love with a pretty
Jewess maid named Leah, and pro
posed to make her his wife; but -as she
was tho daughter of a poor widow with
other children, and as Abraham had to
seek his fortuno in a foreign land, it
was agreed that they should become be
trothcu and wait until Abraham earned
tho means of providing a home. Leah
and her mother thought that when sho
was out of sight Abraham niighvchango
his mind, or that some fair stranger
might steal away her lover's heart: It
was therefore deemed advisable that she
should bind him to his engagement in a
bond of $400 and when the matter was
proposed to him ho said ho "had no ob
jection, provided tho bond was mado
equally binding on either side, which
was accordingly done, and each was
duly bound in a penalty of $400 to bo
true and faithful to the other. Sureties
wore found on cither side, tho surety of
Leah being one Moses, who made light
of his suretyship.
Scarcely, however, had Abraham
reached his destination when a rich Jew
from Algiers visited our city, and went
to the Jewish schools, in which Leah
was employed as a teacher. He was
much struck bv her modest demeanor,
as well as by the ability which sho dis
played in the discharge of her duties,
llo inquired who sho was and soon af
terward called upon her mother and
proposed to marry hCr. Tho widow told
him of Leah's engagement and bond,
but tho ardor of his love was only in
flamed tho more by these difficulties in
tho way of his desires. Ho reasoned that
Abraham would soon forget her, that ho
might die or fail in his attempts to ac
quire a fortune, and that sho had better
secure a home and a fortuno when she
had tho chance. In short, he generous
ly offered to provide for the whole fami
ly and pay tho penalty of $400 besides.
Leah at last yielded to the tempting'" of
fer, and the pair presented themselves to
llabbi Mordecai Ben Geo for- thopurposo
of making the necessary arrangements
for tho marriage. Tho rabbi objected,
on tho ground that, to his certain knowl
edge, Leah was betrothed to Abraham.
Tho now lover was not to bo thus
balked, and lost no time in securing
passages in the French steamer for Oran
for him and Leah, together with tho
whole family, and a few days later they
bteamed away to tho cast, after, it is
stated, having deposited $400 in tho
hands of tho rabbi. Abraham's father
appealed to tho rabbi, who said that
nothing could bo dono until ho received
a power of attorney from his son, and
then tho father called upon Abraham's
friend to ask advice, and, to his joy
found that ho held the very document
ho required. With this they both re
paired to tho house of tho rabbi, who
looked at it, and to their dismay pro
nounced it useless because it was.written
in tho English language.
Tho United States consul and consul
general were appealed to, but said that,
us it was a matter of Jewish law, tho
question must bo left to tho discretion
of tho rabbi. Negotiations were then
entered into with Moses, who compro
mised the matter by tho payment of half
tho bond viz., $200, Wo havo not yet
heard what effect has been produced up
on tho mind of Abraham, but they say
that a candle is never so easily lighted
as when it has just been put out, and
perhaps in a mail or two wo may hear
that Abraham is on his way homo to
choose another of tho fair maidens of

A Slysterious Knoro from a BodyA
Strange Experience.
"I have been for the past fifteen years
engaged at my present business and I
need not tell jou it is not ono of the
most pleasant occupations in tho world.
I havo had somo terrible experiences
during that time, and if I were to relate
somo of them to you you would not think
them credible. I spend most of the day
and night with these dead bodies, and
now that I havo grown "accustomed to it
I do not mind it much." Tho speaker
was Prof. James Walsh, superintendent
of tho dissecting-room in the New York
University Medical College, and the
answer was given in reply to tho re
porter's query. Tho professor con
tinued: "If you wish to hear an experience I
had, let me see, about fifteen years ago,
I have no objection to telling you, but
follow me up and I will show you tho
very spot where it occurred, and perhaps
it will help to refresh my memory some
what" Tho reporter followed the professor up
a long winding stalovay until he came
to a door which was locked. Tho pro
fessor took from his pocket a key, and
havingapplied itto thelock.the door flew
open and disclosed a long, wido room,
in which lay upward of two hundred
"cadavers" placed upon marble slabs.
Tho stench that came from this room
was of tho most indescribable character,
and tho reporter instinctively drew back
to catch his breath.
"This is tho dissecting-room," added
'the professor, "and it gives you some
idea of the character of my work. It is
hero I spend my day andnight and you
will at onco admit it is iwt a very 'pleas
ant way to spend one's Steaeo. It Is
over there, just at that sla"b toward the
left, that tho experiences occurred which
I will now relate.
"I was then a new man, and did not
feel quite at home as much as now, and,
though it is well nigh fifteen years sinco
it happened, it was so forcibly impressed
upon my mind at that time that I shall
never forget it Tho students had all
gone, and I was alono in the dissecting
room. Tho hour was about 12 o'clock
and I had remained to fix up tho cada
vers for tho morrow. The associations
connected with this place at such an
hour are enough to fill tho mind of a less
nervoub person with apprehension.
About two hundred dead bodies lay on
the slabs all around, and at that time a.
screen hung from the top of each slab
to tho ground so as to conceal tbo debris
during the day. Not a sound broke the
stillness of tho dissecting-room, not a
ripple ran through the big building,
when all at once, as I stood near the
slab, I heard a loud snoring sound pro
ceed from a cadaver.
"I could feel tho throbbing of my
heart, and I stood rooted to the ground.
I could not move if I tried, and tho
muscles of my feet seemed to give way
under me. Tho cadaver raised himself
up on his back and looked and grinned
at mo in a most agonizing manner. A
cold sweat ran nil over my frame. I
seemed to be lifted oft' the ground, and
in another moment I was thrown pros
trate on the floor. I never believed
much in ghosts, but at that time I could
not explain this extraordinary pheno
menon. "I lay in that position I know not
how long, but anyway when I recovered
consciousness it was morning, and tho
light was bti earning in through those
windows. With tho return of day I
plucked up fresh courage and went up
to ascertain tho cause of my scare of tho
previous night. The cadaver lay in the
very same position in which it had been
placed by me, and I put my hand on
tho face and found tho coldness of death
there. I raised up the cloth that cov
ered tho lower part of the slab and thero
found the cause of my feeling of the pre
vious night. A student lay on his back
on tho floor in a profound slumber,
sleeping off the effects of tho night's de
bauch. This at once explained tho
whole secret away, and tUo nervous
prostration I experienced was wholly
duo to my ardent imagination. I got
over all tliat, however, and now I inves
tigate tho cause of an( unusual noise
sinco that night Of coiuse you can
readily understand the nervous; pertur
bation was wholly induced by tho
strange noiso that was produced in that
place at such an unsoasonablq'hour,
and that explains awav my feelingswith
regard to tho erect position the cavadcr
was supposed to assume. Such an ex
traprdinary occurence might rusult
fatally in many cases, for tho, nervous
system in one ho is :t firm believer in
supernatural visitations would receive a
shock from which it would never in all
probability rally, and I have known
many peoplo who were rendered insane
by just such an occurrence. It was a
lesson to jaxo, however, that I will not
readily forget So much for my first ex-
