Trying to HiiiMn tlio Dead.
"Talking annul the Christian science , "
said an undertaker , "I had a strange
experience not long ago. A woman was
very sick and was apparently dying.
She could not talk and was | tt .t bioalh-
ing. There we ) e some of the mind doc
tors in attendance and they succeeded in
rousing the woman from hot dying con
dition , so that slu ; was able to talk , and
shi ! lived three or four hours longer than
seemed possible. Her husband was Ihus
enabled to talk with her over all their
matter's ' , and , as ho told me , he. would
not have taken any amount of money for
the time his wife's life was llius longlh-
encd. She died , though , and 1 was
called in. 1 embalmed the woman , and
had barely got through when one of these
science healers eaint ! lo me , a very esti
mable lady , and told me she had a re
quest to make. She promiseil Iho dying
woman lhat if she died she would remain
with her after death , and would see. if
she could not reslore her to life. She
felt llml so sacred n promise should be
kept , and 1 felt so lee , although i lold
her thai it would bo of no use. The
woman was dead , and she could not re
store her lo life. She seemed to have
great faith , however , and wanted to try ,
and as .sho had made so 'sacred a prom
ise , I told her to go ahead. 1 promised
to stand by her while the Irial was mado.
I told her lhat if she could bring her to
life the woman could not live , as Hie
material used in embalming the body
would kill her. She tried" il , though.
She commenced rubbing the dead wom
an's forehead and her bands , and kept
Ibis ui ) riome lime , Every now and then
she would say , 'did you SOP ihatV as it
the dead woman was showingsomo signs
of life. I began to get nervous myself.
After thus rubbing ine women for some
lime Uiero came a slrangc change over
Ihe dead face. This was no imagination.
1 was sure of lhat. There was a ilillerent
expression altogether , ami ilill'orcnl look.
There was a slight perspiration and flush ,
and 1 began to feel queer 1 a&stiro you.
It occurred to me , what if llic woman
was in a trance simply , and she should
come to after all , and Ihen 1 would bo in
a bad fix , for Iho embalming process was
such that if sin ; came lo she would not
have lived long. I never felt so queer in
my life. The trial did not succeed , however -
over , and was finally given up. 11 was
no use , and the .strange appearance
passed away. I sunposo it was cau cd
by the electricity of tlio lady who wa.s
rubbing her , or some.lhing of that sort , i
confess 1 felt rather queer though , but I
really had no sobei thought that Iho ex
periment would prove a success. "
Drawiiifi liots for a Mayor.
Who will bo chosen mayor ? The
queslion just begins to be whispered
about , in view of the special election
called for lhat purpose. There seems
lilllc inclination on the part of anybody
to urge on any special conlost for the.
position. There is a feeling lhat such a
political contest as is usual would be un
seemly in view of Iho Pad events which
have accidenlally caused the vacancy
which no soon has lo be lillcd. An old
city politician was heard to remark ,
"Thero will be no fight , over llio mayor.
Of course Iho lemporary mayor , Mr..I.
V. Evans , will bo rcnominatetl by Iho
republicans , and as ho look the position
under peculiar ctrcumslanco.-i , there will
bo no tight made on him , oven by those
who want , to see some other man elected.
Tliij democrats , though , will hardly feel
like refusing to make a nomination' . If
they do make ono , they will not make
any open light against Mr. Evans. It
will bo a qniot election , and every man
will vote as ho chooses with Ihe usual
tusslu and tangle. I have heard it
intimated lhat Ihe way the thing will bo
arranged will avoid any .sort of a contest
at the polls. It is said that the repub
licans will nominate Mr. Evans , anil the
democrats will nominate some other good
man. The two nominees will llicn get
together , and draw lots , or in tome other
way decide which will run , and that ono
\yili withdraw , and itoolino the nomina
tion. Then there will ho bill one can-
didalo , and ofcourso il willth-m bo ] > roUy
nearly a unanimous thing. If that is Iho
case it will bo aqueor thing , for realty the
men will draw lots as to who will bo
mayor. "
A stalwart republican said that ho had
heard of this lottery scheme. He didn't
bejievo in it. ' ! tell yon it's simply n
trick , and republicans ought to look out ,
for il. The tact is that Mr. Evans will
bo elected sure , and by the overwhel
ming majority of citi/chs , as it is not a
political olllce , and there will be no poli
ties in Ihe oleclion really , although the
forms of nominations will bo gone
through with. It would not bo fair to
Mr. I'.vans to elect him just for ti few
month ! : , and then when he had jnsl en
tered on the duties of Iho ofhco lo elect
some oilier man. It. would not , bo Iho
best thing for the city cither. All admit
that ho is a good man for the place , and
there democrats as well as republicans
who will votn for him , no mailer who Is
nominated. Some of the democrats who
cannot sea further than party lines , are
anxious to htivo a democrat for mayor ,
whether or no1 They feel that ono can
not bo elected as against Mr , Evnns just
at this time , and in view of all thiujir-
oiimstancos. That's the reason this talk
has been starlcd about drawing lots. It
looks nice and fair , but th i fact Is they
see that in that way they would have an
oven chance of getting n ilcmoorntii
mayor. If Ihoy go to Iho polls in the
regular way Ihoy stiind no chance at this
timo. 1 do not believe in ntiy lotlory
way for choosing a mayor.
Artificial Curbing. .
There has sprung up hero quite iv gen.
oral sentiment in favor of ourbings of
arlilioial stone , it being claimed Unit it
glands boiler than the natural stone. It
is dltUcult to got real btone which will
stand the teslsgiven itwhoniuedtia curb
ing. The Btono sot on end , the exposure
to weather , lo freezing and thawing of
waler , seems to soon cause even the best
of the .slono lo ciumble , and givnnway.
The artificial stone seems lo have advan
tages , which render it not so elibjuet to
these faults. The artilicial ttono when
freshly put in h liable to injury , however ,
as scon on Pearl street. ThoughlJoss
drivers backing their wagons against the
now curbing on L'carl street have already
done some damage to it , ami it has be
came ncociwary to place plank to protect
il until it becomes suniciontly hard ,
"There's ono curious thing about this
artilicial slone. " remarked City Engineer
Tostovin , "and lhat la , about i > ! \ wcolcs
after it is nuulo U grows soft , and then it
hardens up from that time on. When
first laid it bcginstogrow hardbut when
sis weeks have passed then it grows pott
again for a little time , uud then it grow *
harder and harder as long as il stands at
all , I don't know why this should bo so ,
but I am satisfied that it is so. 1 have
good authorities staling this to bo u { act ,
and from scientific persons who have
made experiments to that effect , J'ho ar-
lilicial curbing should be carefully pro
tected for more than si\ weeks after H is
laid down , lo get the best results. "

Mr. Lcainan , of Snydor& Lcamtin , was
looking wild when the UEK man came
into his place yesterday. Ho was wrest
ling with a big piece of paper and a
small pencil , and had covered the paper
pretty well over with figures. Ho looked
HP in a wonder-struck way , and gasped ;
"Say , do yon know how many watermel
ons Council Bluffs used this week ? " 'J'ho
BIB : man gave it up. "Make a guess I"
" \ \ ell , say live hundred. " "Five hun
dred , you're crazy , man ! Five hundred ?
Why , Council Bluffs used G.JJOO water
melons this weok. This looks big , but
I've been figuring it out. Hero's the
showing. But what beats mo is the way
it figures up on weights. I've been
through it twice , and it does not seem
possible. The melons will average about
twenty pounds apiece , and calling the
round number 0,000. that makes a weight
of 120,000 pounds. That makes for the
six days 20,000 pounds of watermelons a
day , and counting ten hours to a day , it
makes 2,000 pounds an hour , for every
working hour. Think of il ! A ton of
watermelons going into the stomach of
Council Bluffs every hour I Do you won
der that the figures nearly paralyze mo ,
and the season just commencing. "

the hired girl hoard a nolso at the window
of her room and distinctly saw a man
peering through a place whore some of
the slats of the blinds had boon broken.
The follow was trying 10 force the shut

she gave a scream and fell to the lloor ,
