along 'thoughtlessly, noticing only
occasional inconveniences, and had
suddenly been awakened to the fact
that death was staring him in the
face. He had overlooked little pass
ing troubles without realizing that
they are often "the beginning of the
end." He had neglected interests
that concerned his very life, just as
thousands of others do, simply be
cause they come in a quiet and often
unnoticed wry. And it is cause for
gratitude that his experience is hav

employed so successfully, and my
wife is not in her grave, but in the
enjoyment of health wholly because
Hunt's Remedy rescued her. This is
a grand medicine and a large sufler

skeptical of its life saving, healthy

'rIt is certainly receiving wonderful
indorsements" 1 remarked. "Do you
think it merits them."
"Evenr one of them. Why, when
my wife began using the remedy she
discovered the same medicine had
been given her by a physician some)
time ago without her knowing the
name of tho medicine given at the
time. 1 can also prove that bushel
basketsful of empty bottles of Hunt's
B.emedy were taken out of a doctor's
office after his death. No one sup-)
poses for a moment that the bottles
were used for desk ornaments or brie-)

SAVED PEOM 0BEMATI0N.
Woman Who Came Near
A living woman for whom the
cremator' furnanco was at its
fiercest heat of 2,700 degrees Far
enheitj and for whom the alum
sheet was already prepared, is with
her husband and children, although
Thursday last she lay in her coffin
in a room adjoining a vault where
incineration is done. It was a
case horrible to contemplate, and
will make evident the need of still
more stringent laws to govern this
new feature in sanitary warfare.
Ex-coroner Hughes is president oi
the Mt. Olivet crematory associa
tion, which, in tlie form of a Gre
cian temple, is located in a lovety
spot r Fresh Pond, L. I. Dr.
Hughe i vouches for the correct
ness of the stor', but withholds
both the name of the physician
who signed the dead certificate
and that of the lady. In the for
mer case he gave his promise only
after the most urgent appeals, and
then he only consented to keep
the story until the annual report is
published in October, when his
obligations as president of the
crematory make it necessary for
him to print the facts, and even
then, out of motives of .considera
tion that prevail in ever man's
breast, he will suppress the name
of tlie unfortunate, yet, at the
same time, happy family that had
the dead restored to life.
On the day mentioned a casket
containing the body of a woman
arrived at the cremator'. It came
from Fifth avenue, not far from
Hotel Windsor. Accompanying
it was the widower, children and a
half dozen relatives. The casket
was carried into the reception
rooniyand by its side was placed a
costly silver urn, in which the
ashes were to be subsequently
nlaced for final keening-. After
simple service the lid of the colli n
was removed, and mourners, one
by one, took a last tearful look.
The lid was placed, and the floral
emblems were again placed on the
The widower and weeping chil
dren were led away to the car
riage, and the dead was left to the
crematory assistants for incinera
tion. "Vhen they were gom,
president Hughes and his men re
moved the entire lid, and tl en
sent them to prepare the alum
sheet for enveloping the body, and
to swing the chilled steel cradle
into position before the glowing
furnace doors. While they were
absent president Hughes turned
to a small mirror, and while ar
ranging his tie he was startied by
a faint voice at his back calling:
"Where am I?"
Turning quickly, he saw the
woman sitting bolt upright in her
casket, staring directly at him.
When he gathered his scat
tered wits he realized that
prompt action was needed,
and, stepping to her side, he
said, familiarly: "You are with
friends." She had alread' swung
her legs out of the casket, and
was looking m a dazed way at the
urn, and then at her satin burial
robes. Assisting her out of the
dreadful coffin and encircling her
with one arm, he carefully kept
her head turned from her resting
place, and half led, half carried
her to a cheerful bedroom over
head, occupied by the superin
tendent and his wife. Soft breezes
were coming in the window, and a
cheer canary bird in the alcove
sang a song of joy. While the
superintendent's wife removed the
garments of death, and put the
lady to bed, president Hughes hur
ried away and returned with some
brandy and milk. The drink had
the effect of bringing the flush to
the cheek of the patient, succeed
ed immediately by a quiet doze.
The telegraph was brought into
requisition, and the husband was
soon back at the crematory with a
set of his wife's apparel. While
he was yet on his way, his wife
awakened from her nap and asked:
"Whose clothes am I wearing?"
They were those of the crematory,
but that fact was ingeniously con
cealed in the reply, which seemed
to satisfy her. The severest task
was when the husband arrived,
when tltey tried to school him into
self-control for the interview. The
course of procedure agreed upon
was carried out to the letter. The
husband went into the room with
the usual inquiry as to how she
j felt, and said that if she consid

would return to. the city; that in
bis" opinion she had stayed long
enough in the country. Acqui
escing in everything, although
somewhat mystified, she arose,
dressed herself and announeed
that she was ready. The husband
was now in a tortured frame of
mind, for he dreaded passing the
front door, where in large letters
was the word "Crematory." The
shock of the discovery he feared
would kill his wife. Happily
there was a rear door, and through
this he led her to a close carriage,
and thence, regardless of the fact
that there was a road, he had the
carriage driven straight across the
lawn and field until kindly trees
hid .the crematory from sight.
Then he took the smooth pike Jo

For all Diseases of the

This purely vegetable pre- -paration,

A rHTSICIAVS OPINION.
I have been practicing medicine for twenty years,
and have never been able to put up a vegetable
'compound that would, like Simmons Liver Regu
lator, promptly and effectively move the Liver to
action, and at the same time aid (instead of weak
ening) the digestive and assimilative powers of the
system. L. M. Hihton, M. D. .Washington, Ark.
