1IDRIED FOR FOKTY DAYS.
A Well-Atteled Account or nn Indian
Fakir Who wna Healed Up, If tirlrri, nnd
Rrucltntrd Alter Forty lny-The
Process or Reviving he Vital Spark.
We aro not told whether the Seven
Sleepers who retired to a euvc in Ephc
sus during the reign of the Christian
killing Emperor Dceitts, and only woke
up one hundred and fifty-live years aft
erward, when Thcodosius IL was on the
throne, made any special preparation,
but probably they did not. Perhaps it
was not necessary. Those were stirring
times for members of thu new faith,
and they had little opportunity to grow
obese. Hut, as a rule, to fast success
fully it is said to be necessary for a man
to abstain before-hand, and reduce him
self most carefully to the required con
dition by a long course of preparation.
Pre-eminent at this art of suspending
animation for an art it becomes aro
the Easterns, and most wonderful stories
arc told of the natives of India, which,
whether their powers aro due to narcot
ics or any other process, seem to open
up if true a wide field of medical
study. Ono of these Indian stories, not
easily accessible, but of considerable
interest on account of the known ve
racity of the witnesses, will probably be
read with interest at the present time,
and is inserted here. The author of it
was ono Hon. Captain Osborn, and the
notes made of his statement, here sub
joined, come from an almost unique
copy printed for private circttlatio'n.
Runjeet Singh had heard from a
Seyd or Fakir, who lived in tho moun
tains, that the latter could allqw him
self to bo buried when in a condition of
apparent death, without really ceasing
to live, seeing that ho understood the
art of being brought back to life on be
ing exhumed after several months had
passed. To the Maharajah this ap
peared to bo a rank impossibility. In
order, however, that he should bb con
vinced one way or tho other, ho or
dered the Fakir to be summoned to the
Court, and causod him to undertake the
singular experiment, under a threat
that no means of precaution would bo
wanting toward tlie discovery of fraud.
The Fakir consequently caused himself
to appear in a state of apparent death.
When every spark of life had seemingly
vanished, ho was, in tho presence of the
Maharajah and tho nobles who sur
rounded him, wrapped up in the linen
on which ho bad been sitting, and on
which tho seal of Ilunjeet Singh was
placed. Tho body was then deposited
in a chest, on which RunjectSingh, with
his own hand, fixed a padlock. The
chest was carried outside the town and
burjed in a garden belonging to tho
Minister; barley was sown over tho
spot, a wall was erected around it, and
sentinels posted. On tho fortieth day,
when tho chest containing the Fakir
was dug up and opened, tho man was
found cold and stark in precisely tho
same condition as that in which ho had
been left. With much trouble ho was
restored to life by means of heat ap
plied to the hoad, afllation in the ears
and mouth, rubbing the body, etc. The
Minister, Rajah Dhyan-Singh, assured a
friend that he had this Fakir,
whose name was Karidas, for a
period of four mootlis under tho
earth at Jummoo in tho mountains.
On tho day of his burial he had
caused his beard to be shaved off, and
when ho was taken up again his chin
was just as smooth as on the day when
he was consigned to the earth a proof,
as would seem, of suspended animation.
It is related that the Fakir in question
took a purgative some time before the
burial display, and for several days
afterward lived only on a scanty milk
diet. On the day of the interment it is
said that, instead of taking any nour
ishment, he swallowed thirty yards of a
strip of linen of tho breadth of three
fingers, which he immediately drew up
again, his object being to clean the
stomach. However wonderful and per
haps laughable these operations appear
to many, it is plain that these people
must have a singular control over the
different organs of their bodies, and
more especially over their muscular
contractions. When all the necessary
preparations have been accomplished,
the 'Fakir closes all the openings of his
body with stoppers made of aromatic
wax. lays his tongue far back in his
throat, crosses his hands on his breast,
and suspends animation by means of
holding his breath. On his being
brought back to life one of the first op
erations is, by means of the fingers, to
draw the tongue away from the back
of the throat; a warm and aromatic
paste made of meal is then placed on
his head, and air is blown into his
lungs and into the ear-holes, from
which the wax stoppers have been re
moved, the stoppers in tho nostrils
being presently forced out with an ex
plosive noise. This is said to be the
first sign of a return to life. He then
gradually commences to breathe, opens
the eyes and recovers- consciousness,
continuous friction of the body being
carried on all the time.
Here is a farther curious statement
of opinion on the subject of the Indian
stories from an equally rare source, the
little pamphlet of Sir Claude Wade,
published in 1837. ' I was present,' he
writes, at the Court of Runjeot Singh
when the Fakir, mentioned by tho Hon.
Captain Osborne, was buried alive for
six weeks; and, although I arrived a
few hours after his actual interment,
and did not, consequently, witness that
part of the phenomenon, I had the
testimony of Runjeet Singh himself, and
others of the most credible witnesses of
his Court, to the truth of the Fakir
having been buried before them; and,
from my having been myself present
when he was disinterred, and restored
to a state of. perfect vitality in a pqsir
tionso close to him as to reader any
deception impossible, it toaprfirni be
lief that there was no coUHJgii jn.P"

I saw, to enable others to judge of the
weight due to my evidence, and wheth

opinion,, be detected. On the approach
of the appointed time, according to ia

tho door, while some of Runjeet
mill's people dug away the mud wall,.
and ono of his ofliccrs broke tho seal
and opened tho padlock. When the
door wa3 thrown open nothing but a
dark room was to be seen. Runjeet
Singh and myself then entered it, in
company with tho servant of the Fakir,
and, a" light being brought, wo de
scended about three feet below the
floor of the room, into a sort of cell,
where a wooden box about four feet
long by three feet broad, with a sloping
roof, contained tho Fakir, the door of
which had also a padlock and heal sim
ilar to that on the outside. On opening
it wo saw a figure inclosed in a bag of
white linen, fastened by a string over
the head, on the exposure of which a
grand salute was fired, and tho sur
rounding multitude came crowding to
tho door to see tho spectacle. After
they had gratified their curiosity, the
Fakir's servant putting his arms into
tho box, took the figure out, and, clos
ing the door, placed it with its back
against it, exactly as the Fakir had
been squatting (liko a Hindu idol) in
the box itself. Runjeet Singh and
myself descended into tlie cell, which
was so small we wero only able to sit
on the ground in front of the body, and
so close to it as to touch it witli our
hands and knees. The servant then
began pouring warm water over tho
figure, but as my object was to see if
any fraudulent practices could bo de
tected. I proposed to Runjeet Singh to
tear open the bag and have a perfect
view of the body before any means of
resuscitation were employed. I ac
cordingly did so; and ma' hero remark
that the bag when first seen by us
looked mildewed, as if it had been
buried some time. The legs and arms
of the body wero shriveled and stiff,
the faeo full, the head reclined on the
shoulder liko that of a corpse. I then
called to tho medical gentleman who
was attending me to come down and
inspect the body, which he did, but
could discover no pulsation in tho heart,
the temples, or tho arms. There was,
however, a heat about the region of
the brain which no other part exhib
ited. Tlie servant then commenced
bathing him with hot water, and,
gradually relaxing his arms and legs
from tho rigid state in which they were
contracted, Runjeet Singh taking his
right and I his loft leg, to aid by friction
iifrcstoring them to their proper ac
tion, during which time the servant
placed a hot wheaten cake, about an
inch thick, on tho top of tho head a
process which he twice or thrico re
peated. He then pulled out of his
nostrils and cars tho wax and cotton
with which they had been stopped, and,
after great exertion, opened his mouth
by inserting tho point of a knife be
tween his teeth, and. while holding his
jaw open with his left hand, drew tho
tongue forward with his right,
in the course of which tho
tonguo flew back several times
to Its curved position upward, in
which it had originally been, so as to
close tho gullet. Ho then rubbed his
eyes with ghee (or clarified butter) for
some seconds, till ho succeeded in open
ing them, when thu eyes appeared quite
motionless and glazed. After the cako
had been applied for the third time
to tho top of the head the body was
violently convulsed, the nostrils became
inflated, when respiration ensued, and
the limbs began to assume a natural
fulness ; but tho pulsation was still
faintly perceptible. Tho servant then
put some of the gheo on his tonguo
and made him swallow it. A few
minutes afterward the eyeballs be
came dilated, and recovered their nat
ural color, when the Fakir recognized
Runjeet Singh silting close to him, and
articulated in a low, sepulchral tone,
scarcely audible: - Do you believe mo
now?' Runjeet Singh replied in tho
affirmative, and investo I the Fakir with
a pearl necklace and a superb pair of
gold bracelets, and pieces of silk and
muslin, and shawls, forming what is
called a khelat, such as is usually con
ferred bv the Princes of India on per
sons of distinction. I share entirely in
the apparent incredibility of tho fact of
a man being buried alive" and surviving
the trial without food or drink for
various periods of duration; but, how
ever incompatible with our knowledge
of physiology, in the absence of any vis
ible proof to tho contrary, I am bound
to declare my belief in tho facts which
I havo represented, however Impossi
ble their existence may appear to others.

I did not feel hungry any longer. I

It is related of Prof. Swing that in a
recent discourse before a convention of
Western farmers, he told them that their
lank bodies and sorrowful faces camo of
too much work, too Iktie sleep and too
little good food, and that the same was
true of their boys. His granger audi
cnee must havo taken him for a plaiu,
blunt man to intimate in so direct a
manner that he was addressing an as
semblage of gaunt and uncanny scare
crows; and it is possible that ho put tho
case a little stronger than the circum
stances made necessary'. Prof. Swing
knows a good many things. As a theo
logian, a philosopher, a teacher and a
preacher, he has attained considerable
success, aud won considerable reputa
tion. It is possible that he was once a
farmer's boy, and was well acquainted
with the hardships and the deprivations
of a farmer's existence. But if he has
sketched tho Western farmer correctly,
tho latter faros worse, with all his
boasted immensity of crop, than the
average agriculturist of the East. The
farmers of New York and New England
are not especially lank. They certain
ly do not make tho smooth, rotund,
delicate and wcll-groomei appearance
that is peculiar to many business and
professional men; but they have mus
cles like whip cord, and surfaces that
can receive the sun, the wind and tho
rain without shrinking or suffering in
jury. Thoy live as long and enjoy as
good health as other people, for hard
work does not kill as fast as even the
mild dissipations of society.
Bodily labor does not consume nerve
tissue, and consequently physical
strength, as rapidly as brain labor
alone. The professional man needs
more sleep than tho man whose hands
are in as constant and active employ as
his head; but ho rarely obtains more.
The former works into the night, but
the latter retires as soon as the dark
ness deprives him of tho opportunity
to work, and enjoys refreshing slumber
that is in New "England. The food
upon which tho farmer subsists might
bo varied considerably more to advan
tage. But while it lacks variety, the
quantity or quality is seldom insufficient
A farmer worthy of tho name and
standing of that honorable class who
till tho soil can hardly help having a
great deal of good food that city peo
ple, who live right by the markets,
envy him. He has pure water and
fresh air, to begin with. These afford
an excellent basis of health, and it is
an extravagant theorist who will main
tain that a good sound superstructure
cannot bo erected thereon, with vege
tables right from tho garden, and milk
drawn directly from its native founts,
which have no affiliation with the clear
well or spring water; with butter like
gold, and sweet as the daisies that en
ter into its composition, and bread such
as only a country housewife knows
how to make. "Lank bodies and sor
rowful faces" do not apply to the hus
bandman of, the East Perhaps they
cat more salt pork than is good for
them, but they offset that surfeit by a
thousand inexpensive dainties that are
considered in town the height of lux
ury. There aro no people in the world
that live as well a3 the well-to-do farm
ers of New England, and Prof. Swing
should spend a summer in an Eastern
farm-house and revise his opinions.

envied, the happy person is the person

is droll to observe the flurry and fuss
which a rainy morning causes in some
improvident circles. Father and tho
boys, who must go to business, march
off with their own special umbrellas,
but pretty Susie, delicate little Fred,
and careless Will, having none which
they can respectively claim, are re
duced to the state of explorers and
beggars. A corner in the lower hall,
from remote and prehistoric times, has
been occupied by umbrellas in various
states of dilapidation. It is a dim and
traditionary spot. Cook has frequently
complaiuedof tho umbrellas as rubbish,
but they havo been considered by tho
authorities too good to throw away,
and now they are sought for as for hid
den treasure" Alas! a- one superannu
ated, faded, ricketv wreck after another
is exposed in the light of the dining
room, it is evident that they havo seen
their best days, and are no more to be
trusted for defense and comfort. Tho
older boy trudges off sturdily between
tho drops, and tho little brother and
sister lind refuge under the reluctantly
lent, fragile, silver-plated, much-prized
silken umbrella of the mother, who
would fain have kept it from
school-room perils. The ordinary and
easily taken care, which gives every
member of the family his or her special
boots and gloves, should extend equally
to tho umbrella, which in our change
ful climate is a necessity and not a lux

fretting, would bo prevented it each

Sisters aro frequently careless about
having their own collars and cuffs,
brushes and toilet necessities. One
uses another's, perhaps without tho
ceremony of asking. Tho result is
that tho neat and systematic girl is
trespassed upon by tho disorderly nnd
untidy one. Matilda, who saves her
things, whose handkerchiefs aro not all
in tho wash at once, whose rullles aio
ilutcd, her laces in place, her collars
unfrayed, is used as a convenience by
the giddy Miss Patty, whose bureau
drawers are generally in confusion, and
whoso things aro astray hero and there

families carry this state of affairs even
farther, and wear dresses and bonnets
in common, so that Lettie is seen in

this way all the individuality of costume

He Could Read Latin.
The profit to druggists from tho
practice of writing prescriptions in
abbreviated Latin received a good illus
tration in Boston the other day: A
young man went into a druggist's shop
and handed him a prescription on which
a few grains of chloride of zinc in a
pint of water was ordered in regular
prescription form. The total cost at
retail was probably about a cent, but
the druggist unblushingly asked for
seventy-live. When remonstrated with
for charging so much for putting up a
prescription, the ingredients and cost
of which were named to him, ho an
swered that he did not suppose that tho
customer could read the prescription,
and, as he could, only ten cents would
bo charged. In this stale of affairs it
seems advisable to learn to read pre

Ax old gentleman living a short dis

exhibition two ingenious pieces of
mechanism. One was a steam barken
tine and one a steam bark, built on a
scale of one-eighth of an inch to the
foot. They were framed, planked and
bolted exactly like a largo ship. Each
plank was bolted and riveted with bolts
made from a pin, hammered out to
about the size of a horse hair. They
had wooden blocks, rone strapped, the
rigging was twisted silk, made in exact
imitation of hemp rope, and everything
about them was made after the same
style. The gentleman who made them
said he had taken four hundred and sixty-four
working days to complete them.

A Caitain in the army, holding an
appointment in tho Bengal staff corps,
was staying with his wife and young
child in the same station. Tho father,
a right bravo man ho was. who had
been wounded not a great while before
by some hill savnges, wanted to bring
up his son to bo liardy and fearless,
like himself I should add, so the pa
rents put their little ono in a room to
sleep by itself. But they soon noticed
scratches and strange marks on the
young childs hands, which, getting
worse, mado them call iu a doctor.
This gentleman's advice was eucourag
ing: "If you don't want your child to
lose his hands you had better keep him
away from the rats, for they have been

for a long time. Before lying down to
rest, I took off my riding hoots and
Hung them on one side. When I came
to put them on in tho morning I found
I should travel with much less leather
than I had the previous day, for the
rats had made a complete wreck of tho
upper parts f the boots. I hadn't an
other pair with me or I should have
worn them, for my appearance was
somewhat novel, as I was wearing white
trousers at the time, and the holes in the
boot uppers were painfully manifest in
An old planter in India, whose word
I readily believe, assured me that the
zinc lining of some grain-bins was
eaten through and mended, and eaten
through again several times by rats,
and that the performance was qufte
skillful, in that the bins were built on
brick pillars, and great care was taken
never to leave anything beneath for the
rats to stand upon. But, nevertheless,
they managed repeatedly in some way
to gnaw through the wood and then
through the zinc until the grain fell

When laid up with fever, and unable to

put Blondin altogether to shame. I
amused myself by waiting until the
rats got into difficult pans of the roof,

them. But endeavoring to cause them

They always got out of sight in" safety.
I sometimes had something eatable left

I was sorry afterward, because they
got impudent and courageous, and

A Poktlasd (Oregon) paper says:
One of the strangest and most interest
ing llowerins plants over brought to
this country is on exhibition at Mr.
Shanahan's" Madison Street store. It is
said to be indigenous to Japan. Its
technical terra has not been ascertain
ed, but it is known, and appropriately
so, as the "Baby Plant," It is of the
enus lily, sometimes attaining a
eight of four feet, and blossoms semi
annually. The ono of which we write
is, however, not more than twelve
inches in height, with leaves about six
inches long and two inches wide. The
flower is star-shaped, having five petals
of a handsome brown and yellow color.
Tlie calyx encircles and protects a tiny
little figure that bears an exact resem
blance to a nude baby, its little arms
and legs outstretched, and the eves dis-
tinctly marked. Hovering over this
diminutive form is a small eanopy, 1

and peerinji closely into the face of the
infant, The plant was examined by
large crowds, and people who have a

present one day at a sitting of the
Cortes. The Lower Chamber wis de
bating the clauses of a bill for reim
bursing a Provincial postmaster, whose
mules had been stolen bv a gang of
gypsies. The traveler left the Tagus
and sailed to Callao; thence he went to
Paraguay, and some months later he
was in" California. He crossed the
American continent to New York, then
proceeded to England, and at the expi
ration of about eighteen months he
turned up again at Lisbon, where he
found the Cortes still gravely deliberat
ing over the bill indemnifying the Post
master of Tras os Montes for the loss
of his mules; the moral of which mani
festly is, that Portugal although ap
parently so peaceful and prosperous that
she is scarcely ever heard of. is an ex
tremely sluggish and backward coun
