Mr. Wiudmuller holds that while such
precaution would lessen the danger , the
only method that can absolutely destroy
disease germs is cremation :

detected in ashes has been generally
abandoned. In suspicious cases intes
tines might bo preserved before the rest
of the corpse is consigned to the furnace ;
but , in any case , fire would scarcely
consume a mineral poison. On the

physically as well as metaphysically a
thing of shreds and patches , borrowed
unequally from good and bad ancestors ,
and a misfit from the start. "
It is better to bring your son up to
manhood with habits of industry , phys

the state in his maturer years teach
him such habits at the penitentiary.
