advantage, of clearness and point.
There is no mistaking it. It consists
in editorially quoting sonio paper

AROSE FROM HKR COFFIX.
A Girl in a Trance Narrowly Escapes
llcing Hiirie.l Alive.
aged IS years, twin daughter of
Jacob Traehsel, who resides on
Crooked Ruu, was taken suddenly
ill and soon became unconscious.
She had every nppcamnco of a dead
person, and the family concluded
that life had become extinct. She
remained in thiseondition Saturday
night and until Sunday afternoon.
The family had given up all hopes
and commenced making the
necessary preparations for tho burial
of their child. A shroud had been
made and was ready to be placed on
tho girl. At 4 o'clock Sunday after
noon those who were in the room
where thesupposcd corpse was lying,
were startled by what they thought
were .signs of returning life. Tn a
few minutes the grief-stricken
parents and friends were overjoyed
to see tho young lady open her eyes,
and Immediately she began to con
verse with those about her.
When the girl was nblo to talk
more freely she said that she had
been perfectly conscious of every
thing that had taken place. She
had heard people say that she was
dead, and knew that preparations
were being made for her burial, but
was unable to open her eyes or
mouth or move a hand or foot. She
heard tho family gather about her
when the supposed last breath had
been taken, and felt the burning
tears drop on her face and the loving
imprint of the kiss on her lip, but
was unable to make the least sign
indicating life. Sho had a twin
sister who was cspeciallynUcctionntc,
and tills sister was loath to leave
her, and when she was prepared for
burial made frequent visits to tho
side of Emma and klbsed her over
and over again. During Saturday
night, when tho watchers would
visit her every half hour to dampen
the cloth on her face, her feelings
were horrible in the extreme. To
ward morning she seemed to be
come more reconciled toher horriblo
state, and realized the fact that she
was to bo buried alive. All day
Sunday streams of visitors and
sympathetic friends crowded the
house, and she recognized every
voice and the many kisses from her
old schoolmates. When the collin
arrived and four of the neighbors
lifted her tenderly and placed her iu
it she thought sho would certainly
break the awful spell, but could not.
Sho heard distinctly tho work of
the undertaker in screwing down the
lid of tiie coffin, aud the minutes
seemed to her liko years. Sho could
distinctly hear tho clock and knew
the' hours as they passed by. An
awful moment was when a member
of the family raised her head to clip
a lock of hair to keep as a last re
membraucc of poor Emma.
Sho lias now almost fully recovered
her health. Tho only explanation
that is ofi'ered for this singular oc
currence is that the young lady was
In u trance, and that it was only a
dispensation of Providence that
saved her from being buried alive.
