Jot exactly, just so so. Slender, lively,

they were engaged. The very next week
wo went on a strike again, all except

go over and tell Nan ho must break oif

Mr. Kokuk put on his coat and went
away, but after ho had gone I went to
lift a handful of typo out of a form that
stood near Nan's case, and I gaw that
her eyes were sweating. Tears as big as
rain drops fell down over her case. She

a game with lyjie, Mr. Kokuk got stuck
for the tickets, and I tell you he was

part of the play. As they were walking
along to the theatro they passed a iar
sonage, 'Isn't that the man that preached
the funeral sermon for The liat'j chil

" 'Yes," answered Nan.
" 'Let's go in and see him,' sai l Mr.

astonished when Mr. Kokuk stskrd Ilio

and they were married, and when thu

formance and Mr. Kokuk took Nan In his
arms and kissed her, what did she do but

In Pussia people are of tencr than else
where condemned unintentionally, of
course to that most grewsonie of all
deaths, of which Poo had such un
feigned, horror burial alive. Put tho
circumstances accompanying this fright-
iui torture are seldom so characteristic
or so horrible as in tho case of the wife
of a peasant in the government of Vol
hynia, on tho borders of Austria, who.
according to the local papers of Volh vnia,
was lately buried in a comatose state.
She was expecting soon to become a
mother at the time cf her supposed
death. After the "corpse" had been
kept the usual time, the parish priest.
Konstantinolf, recited the lira vers of tho
burial service in tho churchyard, the
widower casf three handfuls of earth on
the poihn, and all departed except tho
gravediggcrs. In filling up I. ho grave
the latter shoveled in an unusually largo
sod of hard earth, which struck tho collin
with a loud noise and woko up the tin-
fortunate woman from her sleep. The
horror of her position at once
dawned upon her. She cried out
in most piteous tones to the
gravediggcrs to rcscuo her from a hor
rible death. Sho solemnly promises
them all her property if they would take
her iroin tho grave and collin. 'lhe
more she cried and entreated the more
strenuous were their endeavors to fill in
the grave; and on leaving the church
yard, when their work was done, thev
still heard her cries and moans. They
at once hurried oil to her husband, who
was surrounded with guests, drinkintr to
the memory of the deceased. Having
related what had taken place, the mat
ter was discussed by the guests and the
neighbors, who soon camo rushing in.
and it was finally resolved neru. con.
that an evil spirit had taken possession
of the deceased, and tliat in order to pre
vent her walking at night and disturbing
the ;eople, it was absolutely necessary
to diointer her and drive an aspen stake
through her body. The mirsent a depu
tation to the priest asking permission to
disinter tho body and perform the euper
Btitioas rite, deemed necessary in all such
cases. Tho pope, horrified, hurried 'J
to the churchyard and had tho body dis
interred in tho hope of saving a life, but
superstition had already got its victim,
tho woman was dead, but unmistakable
signs showed she had struggled hard to

SEVEN AN ITrfPORTAXT KCMEF.R.
The number 7 has been invested v.-ith
more mystery than all tho other eligits
together, ami to it were ascribed magic
ami mystical qualities possessed by no
oiovi 1 1 uiu uer. revcrai learned treatises
have been written on this number, and
septenary combinations Jiavo been
sought everywhere, n an old writer of
two centuries ago wo mav read why, in
his opinion, tho numlier is" peculiarly ex
cellent. First, ho savs: "It ij neither bo
gotten nor begets;" secondly, "it 'is a
harmonic number and contains ell the
harmonies;" thirdly, "it is a theological
number, consisting of perfection;"
fourthly, it is composed, of perfect num
bers, anel 'participates of their virtues."
Iio may hnd letter reasons for the im
portance attached to this number. Much
of it i3 doubtless duo to its prominence
m the Pible. The seven davsof creation
led to a septenary division cf time to all
ages. Jsoverai of t.'io Jewish feasts Lmte.i
fc-oven days. Plisha 6ent Naaman to wash
in the Jordan seven times, and Eli jah
sent his servant from. Mount' Carmel
seven times to look for rain. For seven
days seven priests with seven trumpets
invested Jericho, and on the seventh dav
they encompassed it seven times. Then?,
wcro seven virtues, and Beyeu mortal
tins, " '" " '
1 h-j ancients not only noted the im
portance ot seven as an astronomical
period, but also connected with the seven
phaicts tho seven metals then known.
Tho son! of man was anciently supposed
to be controlled by this double septenary
combination. It was aLo an ancient be
lief that a change ia the body of man
occurs every seventh vcar.
The Koran enumerates eeyeri heavens.
There was an old Russian superstition tc
