"Ay, but in your case," growled the old gentleman in return, "that is due not to aphasia but to ignorance."

What IB more, tho victim is not only a consenting party to the dcodi but even takes part in the funeral as iis own chief mowner, "Jbo country where this practice remains in ox- ; stericeis China; and tne people Who { are thus- buriod alive usually thoso vho, 'either on account of their ncordgiblo misconduct or Incurable maladies, have cortfe to be regarded as burdens to their relatives, and as constituting ndt only a nuisance, but also a danger to tho community to which they belong. Ihese interments Of living men and women aro jenerally tho result of a decree of a sort, of family council, composed of all the principle relatives of tho victim, and they are so fat 1 regarded as legitimate that tho local authorities do not hesitate to attend the obsequies. Sometimes, too, the decree is pronounced by a vigilance committee, or 'VehmgerichV an institution that flourishes, quite as extensively in OS ina at the present day as it di'd in Germany two or three centuries ago. The obsequies of live persons are attended by 'much pomp and ceremony, but only when disease or old ago, 'causes the family and the fel low-citizens of the candidate' for funeral honors to desire his clcpar- tni'-n for' another vrnVR Everything that 1.3 possible is tlo'ho to smooth tho way and to chc'er, if one may be allowed to use tho expression, his Ifift moments. Relatives and neighbors combine to purchase the most expensive cotlin that they can afford, the price ranging from $10 to $500 and even $1,000. At the funeral repast that precedes the interment he io the, guest of honor, and as soon as the feasting has been brought to a conclusion the procession to the grHve begins. It is led off by tho enjpty coffin, which in form resem- blea the trunk of a tree, tlie boards being three or four inches thick and rounded outside. Immediately following the coffin walks the "moribund," magnificently arrayed, generally in the superbly embroidered garments of a mandarin, and bearing r» fan in one hand and a prayer written on a piece of paper in thoj other. Then follow the members of tho fumUy, the village or town authorities and tho neighbors. On'roaching the border of.the grave, the principal actor in this part of the performance takes a solemn leave of all those present, arranges the garments in the most convenient and comfortable fashion, takes a last big Swallow of opium, and thereupon' assumes his place in the coffin. A piece of silver having been placed on his chin, the lid is placed ou tho casket and is nailed dovtn by his sons and nearest relatives; tho earth is battened down and all is over. These statements may scorn to be mere travelers' tales, some of those absurd exaggerations—embroideries is perhaps the most appropriate term —^-to which people who have journeyed far are popularly supposed to be addicted. But 1 have, when in China, frequently heard the matter discussed by people who had actually witnessed ceremonies of this kind; and further information is afforded by duly authenticated instances de.scribed: in .one of the recent,numbers of the Austrian Oriental'lie'view, one of tho most erudite and weighty of all publications dealing with Asiatic affairs, being edited under tho auspices of the world-renowned Imperial Oriental academy at A'ionna. Thnre can be no doubt as to the absolute authenticity of tho cases described in the Rovltf'ir, ouo of which in particular took onl.v three or four years ago at a place called. Tchita Kong. The object in burying people ulivj in this manner is to got rid of them in n manner calculated to free thoso who have taken part iu the affair from all responsibility in this world, and at the same time to siwe the victim from the odium of euiclde in the next world; for, theoretically, at any rate, the party interred is a cousontiug party thereto, and his relatives and neighbors are merely executing his last, and, therefore, sacred wishes in nailing down his eoftln and burying him. Strictly speaking (that is, from a Chinese point of view)i there is no rnuraer, no execution and no suicide. It is merely a sort of mutual arrangement alFuir, satisfactory alike to all parties, the occupant of. the coffin com' plying with the desire of his relatives and neighbors for his departure for a better world, and they, on : theU' side, endeavoring, by every moans in their power, to render this departure agreeable and easy. China is, I believe, the only country where this ancient custom ol burying people alive still exists, That it used io bo practiced in many at the countries of Europe is an ac ktiowledged fact, the medieval BUV vivals of. the custom taking tfee foroj of what may be described as immura tion, or the building up in a wall o< the victim. A loaf of bread and $ jug of water were generally placed in the niche, and Mr. .Rider- JIag'gJ describes several aiicient monaster- ios and convents, notably pne in Mexico and ono at WalthanV, in Eng- Igud, where skeletons and pitshera bailt into the walls were found by wurkmen engaged in either tearing down or repairing the bv.ijding.

In the crusade inaugurated nearly half a century ngo against the professional ignor- nnce of the old school of medicine, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters was a standard bearer. Its victories over disease, when tho old time specifics proved abject failures, •proved that the pseudo-philosophy which sanctioned the administration of violout •remedies ' whore 'the case required none, which laid down as unalterable rules blood letting, violent purgation, the use emetics and the employment of corrosive ond cumulative poisons in simple cases of liver and malarial complaint/ was in fact tho worst of upphilosophy, contrary alike to tho laws o£ true medicinal science, of. hygiene and of common sense. Biliousness, constipation and chills and fever, as now treated by tho Bitters, promptly yield where before they obstinately resisted old fashioned medication. Bo do dyspepsia, rheumatism and kidney complaint—all surely conquerable by this safe and really philosophic remedy. An agricultural laborer in India is supposed to receive 5 cents a day, but in general his wages.are not so large. —The Hawkeye Pire Insurance Company of Iowa still seems to hold, thp firso place among the insurance companies. This company is undoubtedly the most popular company doing bus- inesS'in Iowa. ' \V'ny is it this company does such a large business? There must be some reason for it. We know of none other except that it charges a fair price for its policies; it always adjusts its losses fairly and equitably and pays them promptly. The Hawkeye Insurance Company, as shown from the auditor's report, possesses the largest amount ot assets and the largest amount of net surplus of any of the Iowa companies. In our judgment it gives better indemnity tlian any company that is issuing policies in Iowa. The farmers of Iowa in placing their insurance with the Hawkeye Insurance Company make no mistake and take no chancea'of loss. We take much pleasure in speaking a good word for so< prosperous and so pood an institution as the Hawkeye Insurance Company of Des Moines, Iowa.

It will, perhaps, require a little stretch of the imagination on the; .•t of tha reader to recognize the fact that the two portraits at tho bead of this article are of tbe same individual ; and yet they aro truthful sketches made from photographs, token only a fow months apart, of a, very much esteemed citizen of Illinois—Mr, C. H. Harris, whose address is No. 1,023 Second Avonue, Bock Island. 111. The followirfg extract from a letter written by Mr. Harris'explains the marvelous change in bis personal appearance. He writes : " Dr. Pierue's Golden Medical Discovery saved my life and has made me a man. My homo physician says I am good for forty years yet. You will remember that I was just botweeu life and death, and all of my friends were sure it was a case of death, until I commenced taking a second bottle of ' Golden Medical Discovery,' when I became able, to sit up and tbe cough was very much better, and the Heeding from my lungs stopped, and before I had taken six bottles o? tho ' Golden Medical Discovery' rSiy, cough ceased and I was a new mail and ready for business. I now feel that it is a duty that I owe to my fellow-men to recommend to. them the ' Golden Medical Discovery' which saved my life when doctors and <ul other medicines toiled to do me any good. I send to you with this letter two of my photographs; ono taken a few weeks before! was taken down sick in bed, and the other was taken after I was well," These two photographs are faithfully re-produced at the bead of this article, Mr, Harris's experience in the use pf " Golden Medical Discovery" is not an exceptional one. Thousands of eminent people in all parts of the worl4 testify, in just as emphatic language, to its marvelous curative powers over aU chronic bronchial, throat and Jung diseases, chronic nasal catarrb, asthma, and kindred diseases. Eminent physicians prescribe "Golden Medical Discovery" when any of their dear ones' lives are imperilled by that dread disease, Consumption. Under such circumstances only the most reliable remedy would ba depended upon. Tho following letter is to the point. It 13 from on eminent physician of Stamps, Lafayette Co., Ark. He says: "Consumption is hereditary in my wife's family; some have already died with the disease. My wife has a sister, Mrs. E. A. deary, that was taken with consumption. She used Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, and, to the surprise pf her many friends, sho got well. My wife has also ba4 hemorrhages from the lungs, and her sister insisted on her using the r Golden SCefJicaJl Dis- covory.' I consented to her using it, and' Itr, cured her. She bos bad no symptoms of consumption for, the past six years. PeopUi > having this disease can take no bettor reiu-- ecly." Yours very truly, From tbe Buckeye State comes the following : "I was pronounced -to have consumption by two of our best doctors, I spent nearly $300, and was no better. I concluded 4 to try Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovwy. I bought and used eight bottles and I con. now say with truth that I feel just es woll to-day us I did at twenty-five, and can do just . as good a day's work, on the farm, although t-' had not done any work for several yearn." Truly, your friend, Mr. Dulaiiey's address is Campbell, Ohio, " I had catarrh in the head for years anil trouble with my left lung at tho afffce tiraa. You put so much 1'oith in your renmlies that I concluded to try one bottle or Pro, and I derived much benefit therefrom. I used up* throe bottles of Dr. gage's Catarrh Remedy,. five bottles of your " Golden Medical Discovery," and in four months I was myself again.. I could not sleep on my left side, and now B can sleep o#d eat heartily, go long as I have- your medicines on hand I have no need of an doctor : I do not think my hquse fc» order without them.
