; Portland, Nov. 4. Portland Or-
fgonian: tsoaies ounea id Mount
(Cilvary cemetery turn to stone
within a few years. This is the
startling diecovery. recently made
by gravediggers employed in re
moviDg the dead from one part of
the cemelery to another. . In the
cate of a grave opened last meek,
tbe body of a w ell-known Portland
woman tit'o died and . was buried
in the oemetery 16 years - ago ' was
found to. have become completely
petrified. Though the. coffio and
tbe grave-clothes had crumbled to
duet, tbe body, in appearance, was
unchanged, and the features were
Dlai nl v jrecrcnizible. ;,: V, ."
In one oi her instance a body bur-j
led in a d;iisent part of tbe hallowed
ground was found to - have. - uoder
gone a similar alteration;, and . air
thoBgh at first the structural change
wiae ascribed to the action of water
teeping into the soil from a leaking
standpipe, it is now admitted that
the soil -itself. possesses the p3cliar
property of petiifying bodies buried
in it? " Ii isp08eible,if not probable,
that tbe bodies of a? large ' majority
Of the hundreds of dead who now
sleep beneath the Eod of Mount Cal
vary have been carved into statues
pf enduring stone by the eculptor
band of nature. .. .
i Although it was not generally
known; the- fact ' that: the soil of
Mount Calvary cemetery: posFesses
the etrange property rientioned was
fjret-'f ospected aroot' three years
ago, wnen. ine ooay 01 Irene jviarv
Owens, a 'girl ;ol4 iy ekre. who was
buried ,ia tb I (ea3etery in 1895, wss
exhtimed ior reinterment in another
lot, and was found to have ; been
strangely preserved from : natural
decay. To tbe astonishment of An
gus N. McGregor, the eextob,-; and
his assistants, when tbe grave was
opened the coffin was fouud intact.
When the workmen attempted to
raie the casket to tbe surface it was
found to be mnch heavier than it
should have been, but this was at
tributed to. the presence xf water in
the coffin. Tha caeket beicg opened
however, it was found that the body
was p trifled. :i:,.;'r y-1 - r-
It seemed' that a crust about an
inch thick had become petrified Over
the entire ;,body forming a stony
shell, and the' corpse was in as per
fect conditlon'otherwise as it was
the day. it. was bnried. ...The features
were well preserved, decay bad not
marred the r contour and relatives
who saw the body'declared it easily
recognizable. In moving. tbe body
the rigbt arm was bfoken, owing to
its brittle; nature, and tbe flesh was
to be seen plainly. :It was not in a
natural state, but presented a woqdy,
fibrous - appearance . and - perfectly
dry. Tbe.6ntire body' was in the
s me condition, bo: far as it could
be judged without " breaking - the
shell of stone.'Tr" - :
One singular f( ature was the total
ahshtt'g pf 'clothing and .there, was
uu irace of the dust of the fabric in
the comn. - - .
At the time- this body ' was ex
numea u was round that toe- grave
bad continually been kept full of
water bv the seepage irooj a stt d
pipe. Tq this was attributed the
petrifaction. Iter developments
have disproven this theory, and now
those, whoiiave.eeen the bodies ex
humed and who have put forward
different theories for the wondeiful
state of their preservation are at a
loss to account for the petrifaction,
unless.it be due to chemical proper
ties of the earth V
On Thursday of ..list . week tbe
grave of. Mre.;Lpuise:. Allehcff,. in
the same cemetery j-was opened for
the purpose of removing -tbe body
to" a different pirt of .the grounds.
The work was done -nnderthe di
rection of a son. Mrs. Allehoff died
and was buried 16 years ago, and it
was expected that tbe " body had
crumbled: to duBt-When tbe grave
was opened, bowever, it was foand
to bencomparatively dry. The
rough outride box ts well as the
coffin, had fallen to pieces from de
cay, .and .there lay .the body .;6a
woman whose weight in life was
about ,160 pounds.- The features
were well preserved and
the body was perfect in form,
but, strange to say, it was seeming
ly of stone of a dark grayish color.
It resembled a : statue carved from
very fine sandstone. ' -
It lay as it had been buried, but
not a vestige o clothing remained.
The hair wa in its natural state,
except that it had turned a reddish
gray. The hmba were of natural
appearance and the' bands were
crossed, just as they ware when'the
body was buried.
.-,The head, owing to the decay of
the pillow beneath, bad fallen back,
cracking the throat squarely acioss,
though tbe bead was still a part of
the body of stone. The crack looked
as though it might have. been made
when the body was in the first stag
es of petrifaction.
Five strong men could bardly
lift the body from the grave and it
was regarded with wonder by those
who raired it' from the deaths in
which it bad' undergone this re
markable change. The hair, while
not petrified, was as well rooted as
in life. " ' -- ' - ;- '
Judging from the appeaarnce of
the body, the clothing had fallen
into dust, and adhering to the doc y
bad petrified with it, giving the pe
culiar dark color' There were but
fe w eif ns of decays and tbe son easi
ly recognized in the featuiesof stone
tbe face of the mother he had buried
16 years before. '
The . eyelashes, fingernails and
other portions of the body -which
ordinarily are first io' decay, were
in excellent preservation and were
turned to stone with the rest of the
body. The tei th - and gams, ex
posed in the elightly opened mouth,
were as perfect aB in life, but also
converted into stone.
TLe only thing which gave the
body any resemblance to ; a ,corpFe
waB tbe mould which is -generally
to be seen on a body after - it has
been interred for some time. This
in the present case covered the body.
It disappearadj, bowever, a tittle
wbile after the corpse was 'exposed
to the air, aid'--'left the stone dry
and bard. :v: - ' -
The grave was located in a low
lying portion of thecemetery, which
received most of the surface water
from the winter rains, and it may
be due to tbls fact that petrification
- Other bodies buried in -Mount
Calvary (emetery in years "gone by
have presents dan unusual appear
ance on being exhumed,- but these
two-ca?es . are the most notable.
When the body of Johann L. Jung
nickel three weekB ago was removed
from the grave after having lain for
14 years in Mount Calvary, it was
foand that the fleeb bad become
duBt but; tbe; skeleton: was intact.
The strange feature was the fact
that the clothing was in condition
as perfect as on the day of, the fun
eral. Even the; creases remained
in tbe trousers, not a sf am was rip
ped or decayed, and tbe check in
the pattern of the cloth was plainly
discemable. " Exposure to the air
did not seem to effect the fabric and
tbe body was teinterred, just ias t it
was found. , f, ,
It is said by those who profess to
know and is asserted by Sexton Mc
Gregor, that woolen clothing is
practically indistructible,. the , wool

Cemetery of the city and lit s" about
