when he whose treatment prevailed

did not heAitate to allege that the
sick man had been destroyed by ig
norant mismanagement. When a
respectable practitioner cists such
an imputation upon a member of
his own professional school he
should be pretty confident of his
ability to prove it, and the accuser
in tho present instance was not un
aware of his imperative obligation
to substantiate his accusation. But
how was that to be done? Ho had
lirmly maintained that the disease
in question was caused by a tumor,
and that the removal ot the same

there was no tumor, and, conse

tumor did i ..i.-t, if the patient was

way of doing that, and the doctor
On Christmas Eve, near midnight,
when lights hone brightly from
homes lar and at hand, and the
snow lay crisply on the ground, the
professional disputant whose truth
and standing were at stake, as he
consiuerea, in me matter, toot a
confidential shidento hia ith him
in a sleigh to the graveyaru where
had been placed the hapless subject
of dispute, and rapidly and quietly
disinterred the poor body and
placed it in the vehicle. The whip
was given to the horse, and away
started the sleigh on the snowy
road back to the surgery.
But scarcely had the desecrators
of man's last resting-place got un
derway with their ghastly prize,
when tiie mufiled beat of horse's
hoofs somewhere in the darkness
behind them told that they had
been watched and were being pur
sued. Sharper fell the whip, and
the spirited young animal before
the sleigh went like the wind ; yet
still the pursuing hoof-beats sound
ed through the keen air, showing
that the pursuer was well mounted.
Turning froai the main-road into a
by-way, or short-cut, leading
through a swampy piece of woods,
the fugitives managed to gain
enough distance to stop the sleigh a
moment just at the edge of a p ank
bridge over a frozen wood and
stream, and stretch a rope across
the dark and narrow road. This
done, they were off again for the
surgery close at hand, with the gal
lop of the pursuer coming sharply
again to their ears. Pausing once
i'.gain lieyond the bridge, to hear
- presently'the collision of tho com
ing horseman with the unseen rope,
a crash, and a cry of wrath, the two
men carried the body to the house
and triumphantly deposited it upon
a dissecting table.

disease and the glory it would be to

has an area of about 400,000 square
miles, and claims a population of

her ability for self-support iswell
established, upon the ground that,
while all the other territories have,
at sometime during their territo

inhabitants, or relief from pestilence

affirmed to be law-abidding, indus

able and generous : conservative
in financial affairs; slow to contract
debts, and willing to make sacri

urged that since the adoption of the
Federal Constitution fifteen new
States have been admitted, each
having a population of less than
83,000 and one of the number less
than 3.5,000, while the average of
the whole fifteen was about G2.000.
Hence she considers there is no
