Baking Powder t ¥ death Was A strahge Uort of a death bc- tiresomeiy lingering, and not satisfactorily completed at last. Death first laidhis cold hattd oh my right foot and when the doctor was called, he said "Ossification!** then 1 re. tha'tl was petrifying, and must become a stoiie image, a piece of stat- h perhaps a rival pf the Apollo Belvedere. In any event 1 would be a dllrioslty* The thought of being a curiosity, a ffeak, a something to be put on exhibition before a gaping crowd, shocked me, for I was of a modest disposition. I besought my friends to spare me from Buch a fate. Death overtook me with less than a creeping pace. It was long years before he entirely claimed me, for inch by inch I slipped from life, and my hand and right ear were the last to I'eceive the stony seal of that dread visitor. The last words that I distinctly heard were, "He is dead!" They were wrong but I had not the power of correcting them, so I lay and listened to the sounds made in the preparation for my funeral. I could indistinctly hear the mingling of scbs and the preacher's sermon. Then I knew that the undertaker was preparing to cover me from sight. How very hard I tried to move my right hand! .What is time? I can not answer. It appeared like the smallest division ol a second, but from what I have since learned I know that 3,000 years have passed since I died. My first knowledge of return'to con- sciousness.was imparted to me by the year that held me longest to life before. My first consciousness was of the sound of human voices. My stony eyes were as yet without sight^and my calcareous nerves without feeling, The first word that I heard was , "Strange!" rethought so too—very strange. What did it mean. What terrible • fate had overtake}! me? . The voice continued: I have given the find much' study" ', . Did the voice -refer to me I listened with all my power. * ; : "It is evidently the purification of a human body that had been found in the ground not less than three, thous: and years. It was covered at the last glacial period. : '"''' I was satisfied that I was a "freak," a "find," an "it." At last this dreaded 'fate had overtaken me, after three thousand years. .-'.... : '. "Doctor, you should bore it through the chest, to satisfy yoursell of its genuineness." said the other, voice. 1 nearly fainted, and could hear no more for some time. I trie.d to think, and spent perhaps a week in the operation. .Then I had a slight sensation of light m my right eye, 'and I bent every-energy in the efforttto: see. : •••.'- '•"'! • ""•', ; .-.?-.'• V I-heard the voice of a young lady: It said. "This stone man is the most wonderful thing in the museum." In a museum! Horrors! Yet I had a happy thought. I was returning to my normal'condition, and Avhen that was attained I would rush from the place and return to the hole where I had been for three thousand years, and pray for -another glacial period. Then I tried to open my eye, and actually succeeded, but instantly it closed again. I was startled by a scream from a young lady/which she folio wed by saying: -.'.-. , . -", "He winked at me.!! I was a "he." That wink changed me from an "it" to a; man. >• • "All imagination," said the doctor, as he struck me over the empty stomach. . My hearing and sight both improved, I realized that I was changing, for the doctor frequently felt of me, and an ' attendant scoured me with whitening to restore my former color. I kept the secret of my recovery for sometime, I intended to keep it until I was able to leap from .my pedes- > tal and escape, But my plans were thwarted, i On the day that I was first able to move my right hand the doctor came , to me,with a steeje drill,.and, placing its sharpened end against my chest, began to bore, I raised my hand and pushed him froin me. The secret was out. After many apologies and explajia<- tions, the doctor said, "My dear friend the first thing to do is to coin* pletely restore you to your ijormal condition, which our advanced science will soon accomplish." Then began a-peculiar treatment that greatly aided nature, and J soon found that my faculties and proper texture were returning. r j?o induce my recovery, the doctor ed me in an environment as much OBsible Hke that of my former life, e understood it. B'as surrounded by a panorama of 3Qsed nineteenth century objects, „_ ,, ( owed that the good doctor had evpwiUy ROt his ideas from, preserved •writings of Cervantes and Verne, and ancient ballet posters.

A phonotype Was put in operation before me, and a& fast as I talked into it f it turned out twenty printed copies of What I said. 1 gave it all that I knew of the history up to the time of my death. The doctor was greatly entertained; and he was apparently amused when I reached the American tariff. Finally I could tell no more, and then I began asking questions. • I am in n strange world. So strange that I hardly know how to tell of it. Selfishness is eliminated from human nature so far as to make the affairs of men almost self-regulating, and to reduce all government to a minimum. There is no labor question, for all work, though but four hours a day, and each person knows what he is best qualified to do and he does it. iHimi t.tiafn ie Vm fmnnr>in.l nliaHtii Completely Paralyzed. f*HV§fCtAMS AftE fev A PECULIAR Votihfc Man CASE. With tflnd^'8 Then there is ho financial question, because there is no money and no trading, and no need of either. It has taken me H long time to understand this. Yet how simple it is under the present state of morals, for every one delights in doing that which he can do the best, and all others are welcome to the fruit of his labor! How perfect! I soon fell into the ways of the present generation. My environment has completely changed me. I live at a hotel \Vitnout paying.-and without having to tip a waiter before I can get anythmp to eat. What wonderful changes there have been! I have so thoroughly imbibed the public sentiment that I desire, to do my part toward the social perfection. 'I asked myself, "what am I best fitted for?" I answered, "A freak." There is nothing distasteful in it now. I am'willing, I am'anxious .to be on exhibition now, and in a .museum where all are admitted free. As I am a great curiosity, that is what I should do as a matter of course. For a number of years I occupied my pedestal in the museum for fourhours each day. There is much that I would like to write, but I began too late— too late, because my condition of ossification is returning in spite of all the doctors can do. I have left my pedestal, and am now in bed,, and gradually buc surely returning tp stone. When the change is completed I will be taken to my place in the museum to remain there forever. I wish it to be so. My writing is very labored, for tain only the use of my right hand, and that very imperfectly.' Soon the' expiring spark of consciousness will' sink into darknees, yet I have no rev ,grets, for regrets are impossible now! I will write no more to-day. To-morrow— .'•''. To-morrow never came to him,, fo'r before that to-morrow he was. dead. The account that he has written of his ossification is true. A month ago, we thought him dead, and lie would have then been put in his grave had he not moved his hand. He appeared to. want to write, and we placed pa,per for him, and put a pencil in his stiffened fingers. The foregoing_is'the result ol writing, we leave it as it was written. He wrote for about an hour, and when the last word to-morrow," was written his hand fell. A month -passed without signs of life from-him, and he was placed in his grave. May lie rest theie undisturbed by the .strange-resurrection of his imagination.—Harry Fulton in Harper's Weekly. . • Stricken and Y?t (From the Times, Philadelphia, Pa.) Stricken With Lahdry'S Paralysis and yet cured. That tneans but little to the average layman but It ineahs a miracle to a physician. Such is the tare efcperi* ence of O. E. Dalllmore, of Madison, N< J. "Yes, It Is true that t had Landry's Paralysis," eald Mr. Calllmore to a reporter, "or else the most celebrated physicians of London were mistaken. "It was on the 16th of March, this year," he continued, "when 1 was in New York City, that I first felt the symptoms of my trouble. I experienced difficulty In going upstairs, my legs falling to support me. I consulted a physician, who informed me that I had every symptom of Locomotor Ataxla, but as the case developed he pronounced It a case of Lahdry's 'Paralysis and knowing the nature of the disease, advised me to start for my home and friends. I gave up my work and on April 1st started for London, Ont. A well-known physician was cohsulted, but I grew rapidly worse and on Saturday, April 7, several eminent physicians held a consultation on my case and Informed me that I was at death's door, having but three to six days to live, still I lingered on, by this tttne complete* ly paralyzed, my hands and feet being dead, I could hardly whisper my wants and could only swallow liquids, and death would realy have been a welcome visitor. "Now comes the part that has astounded the physicians. Rev. Mr. Gondy, a clergyman who visited me in my last hours, as he supposed, told me of the marvelous, cures of paralysis that had been performed .by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. started to take the pills about April 28 and a week after that felt an improvement in my condition/ There was a warm, tingling sensation in the HVnbs that had been entirely dead and I soon began to move my feet and hands, -the improvement continued until May 28, when I was taken out of bed for a drive and drove the horse myself. By the first of July I was able to walk upstairs alone and paid a visit to Niagara. . Slowly but .surely I gained my olc health and strength leaving Ontario for New York on Oct. 11 and beginning my work again on Oct. 26, 1894. Cure* of Landry's Paralysis in eight months.'

A little affair, in which Iricledon, the once famous, singer, was involved, shows that there is more than' one way of settling what is called an "affair of hpnor." ; . Incledon: had never fought a duel, and he never intended' to v <ight one, bu,t he was an unsophisticated man, and said and did a great many queer things out of sheer simplicity. Qn one occasion some remarks of his gave offence to a man with whom the "singer happened to fall into company, and the offended gentleman resolved to have "satisfaction" for his wrongs. Accordingly he hunted up Incledon the next afternoon, finding him at dinner in a noted hotel, "Mr, Incledon,". said the waiter, "a gentleman wishes to see you, sir," , "Show him up, then," said, the singer, How BartKer Pot^r Won R <'J tell you, Asa Potter is a sharp one," said a prominent bank nl an recently, "and few people get ahead of him even when' it comes to making a wager, ' Two or three years «£o, when the Maverick I}auk crowd were making barrels of money I went over to New York one day on the 8 o'clock train, Asa, J'otter and Walter Potter were pitting directly in front of me, and I couldn't help overhearing their talk, Asa 'was eulogizing the train service and Walter was running it down.

Did "I ever tell you of the wreck of the Marv Ann?" ."No." He sat down to describe the imaginary wreck, and when he got alon» to where the vessel showed un intention to founder the chap who was to play inernmiil got the wink and picked up his ears.
