ger of Prematura Burial.
There la • wtdeapread belief among
edu>-uted persons that burial while
still alive Is. though not probable, at
least possible. As evldeuce of this be-
lief oue has but to uotlce bow many
persons leave instructions In tbelr wills
for the taking of s|>eclal precautions
to guard uKulust this most dreadful of
eatastrophies. 1 '
When embalm lug takes place,. of
course, there is uo possibility of beUiff
burled alive, yet helug killed by eta-
baliuliiR fluid Instend of beiug allowed
to revive and siwnd many more years
on earth Is not the fate one would se-
Although there is but one infallible
•lgu of deuth-uamely. putrefaction—
yet there are many other signs, no one
of which Is Incontrovertible, yet that
when taken together, even In the ab-
sence of putrefaction make the diagno-
sis absolutely sure
The heart may stop besting, but this
does Hot net ewarlly mean that the pa-
tient Is dead. The writer recalls a
case In his personal observation when
a woman's neart stopped lieatlng thir-
ty-four times In twelve hours and each
time was started up again by Injec-
tions of bnindy and of nitroglycerin.
That In more than si* years ugo. and
the woman I« alive and strong today
It Is often very difficult to tell the
precise moment of death, but when
the lieurt refuses to respond to stluui
Intluii. when the body becomes rigid,
when the blood coagulates and the eye-
balls Kv oine flnwid and lose their ten-
sion. then there Is no doubt that death
has come The greatest safeguard

of time that In this country elapses be
