NO COFFIN FOR MR. SMITH

The wishes of Reuben John Smith, an eccentric man of 71 years, who died last week at Amesbury, Mass., are to be carried out in detail, and he will be buried in a chair, wearing a slouch hat, and his costly marble tomb will be sealed up by brick masons.
Through dread of being placed in the ground he built a marble sarcophagus last fall. He arranged that his body should be placed in a chair, and under no consideration was it to be put in a casket or buried in the ground.
The entrance will be sealed up with a wall of brick, the outer steel door locked and the key destroyed. The gentleman who had charge of Mr. Smith's affairs had every wish of the dead man carried out.

The Eureka Sentinel (Nev.) Jan. 25, 1902 Pg1

After having been given up to die of what the doctors supposed was consumption, James W. Plunkett, a veteran soldier of the regular army, coughed up the tip of a bayonet, and probably will recover his health.
It is supposed he must have swallowed the bayonet tip with his food and that it "went the wrong way." He often used his bayonet as a can-opener, and presumably the point broke off in the canned meat.

NOT HIS DESTINATION

A steamer was stopped in the mouth of the river because of dense sea fog. An old lady inquired of the captain the reason for the delay.
" Can't see up the river." he replied.
" But I can see the stars overhead." continued the old lady.

A Binghamton, N.Y. girl 19 years old married an 8 month old boy in order to inherit an $ 80,000 estate.

Miss Ellen A. Griffin of New York died recently and left $10,000 in trust for her pet dog.

The funeral of the late Queen of England cost her loyal and loving subjects the mere trifle of $177,500. Royalty comes somewhat high either living or dead.

Twenty years ago a thief stole $20,00 from the Rev. David H. King of Vineland, N.J. and a few days ago returned the money to the minister.

A man recently was literally cooked in a steam bath in San Francisco into which he went without the knowledge of the attendants. He turned the steam on ignorantly and was first suffocated and then boiled.



Sitting Bull wishes local lecture associations, lyceums, churches and literary societies to understand that he is now open for engagements for the season of 1878-79 on the same old terms, so much a head, and he will stand at the door and take tickets as long as the audience lasts.

GIRL HAS SLEPT ONE HUNDRED DAYS

Centralia, Ill., Jan. 6,--- The one hundredth day of the remarkable sleep of Miss Dora Meeks found her much better than last week, but in much the same condition she has been in most of the time. Last week some local illness developed, and her pulse ran up to 120, and she slept soundly for several days.

It was feared she could not live, but Sunday the pulse became normal, and she revived from her sound sleep, and seems to be in a somnolent trance for about 6 hours a day. The rest of the time she sleeps soundly.

Today after being helped to a big chair the girl sat before a big fire, her head drooping as though asleep, eyes half shut, apparently hearing nothing, making no effort to use the vocal organs, silent as she has been ever since September 28.

She went to sleep during the excitement resulting from a lover's quarrel. Since lying on the bed to take a nap she has never been awake, nor has she spoken. She takes little nourishment and is in fair physical condition. Medicine, hypnotism, spiritualism and charms have failed to awaken her.
