josiah JSodfish's Queer Scheme to Save
Himself from Beiuj Buried Alive
From the Chicago Herald.
I was quite certain that I had heard ot
cld Uncle Josiah Bodfish’s death and 1 uria',
and when I met him coming out of a lav -
yer's office and looking rather more bollir
rrent than usual it gave mo a bit of a Kt; i t
aud “creepy” feeling up and dowr tny
spine. But it was Josiah, sure as coni be,
uji 1 there was nothing ghostly in 1 i n>-
pearanoe. I asked him how he canse to lie
still extant in such an irregular way and ho
told me all about it.
"So you thought I was snuli'ed ou. did
you' That’s a good one on you lut, then,
I don’t know’s I can blame y< u, soj a’ tny
own folks ’lowed I was a cada •r. i’vo got
u lawsuit with ’em aismt it. The, had mo
taken up by a constable for distilling the
imace, and that’s what’s IV la u’ ultout.
I'm nut on boil now. I>’s a .i-culiar case,
mnl if I had a mind to ii ke. the Soopreme
Court I could knock \ n, out on tlw question
whether a man who has uoen buried can he
legally prosecuted. You know thorn spells
I have. When I get one I’m liable to 1
plump out o’ niy senses for hours, and I’m
a little nervous about ’em sometimes. If
anyliody tells you it isn’t nothin’ but whisky,
you call hint ii liar, and I’ll back you up.
y ou kuow I’m not intemperate and you
never sawino take anything between drinks
in vour life.
‘•Mehbe you’ve noticed that mo and the
old woman don’t hitch very well. Yes, I
thought so. Some folks have a habit o’ no
ticing other follts’ doin’s. Well, it’s all

darned much interest in the spiritual wel
fare of my family. My old woman’s been
I've been a little fearsome that she might
get too anxious to have me join the heaven
ly choir and plant me if I happened to have
a real bad spell and not come to as spry as
I suggested to Uncle Josiah that he
couldn’t De buried without a physician’s cer
titieate that he was dead.
“That’s another point,” he replied. “Dr.
Pilbolus don’t like me enough to hurt since
I put up a little job on him, and I kinder
suspected he’d play a practical joke on me
if he got a chance in a professional way. I
don’t lielieve the authorities would want a
certificate anyway if they knew Pilbolus
hail anything to do with the case. They’d
consider t hat reasonable ground to suppose
that the patient was ripe for the cold and
silent tomb. If you don’t want to lie
slammed into a coffin and sent kiting to
glory before your time, don’t you have
Pilbolus. lie’s a quack, sure. I’d been
thinkin’ over what might happen, and I had
a talk with the undertaker, who does all my
burying, and we fixed the thing up between

“Well, it seems I got fuller had a spell
last Saturday night, and the next thing I
knew 1 woke up in the dark feeling mighty
queer. Smelt like a funeral —timer-roses
and dead leaves aud carbolic acid, you
know. I thought I’d get up and see who
was dead, but, the first break I made I
bumped my head against something hard.
Then I felt around and found I was boxed
iu, and I concluded it was my own funeral
I felt. So I just kicked the lid off, sat up
in the coffin, fished a match out of my vest
pocket and took a look around. I recog
nized the place by the inscriptions to the
memories of my first throe wives and a
maiden aunt, and it made mo feci sort of
blue to think how near I had come to be
ing reunited with the whole gang at one
“You can imagine how a man would feel
to find himself stowed away on the top shelf
of a tomb in such company, and read his
t>wn epitaph ou the plate by the light of a
brimstone match. I felt in iny coat-tail
pocket and found
A FLASK OF BRANDY,
which showed that the undertaker was a
man of his word and partially restored my
confidence in human nature. I was power
fully relieved to find that I was not yet in
heaven with my sainted late female rela
tives, and with devout gratitude I emptied
the flask aud returded thanks to a merciful
Providence, vowing that I would make a
total wreck of that Pilbolus as soon
as ever 1 should get out. I felt sorry,
though, that 1 hadn't told the umiertaserto
fill in the chinks between my remains and
the cotlln with sandwiches. Then I climbed
down, after ripping the cofiin-plate off and
putting it in my pocket as evidence. I no
ticed that 1 was in my stocking-feet, and
tiiat tiio old woman had put on the remains
of a pair of hose ail worn out at the heels. I
s'pose she thought because tile binds of the
late lamented were down when his toes
wore turned up that the holes wouldn’t be
noticed. Tiiat’s the kind of woman she is.
“1 found the telephone, rung up the ol'
fieo and told ’em to send the sexton to let
mo out. Then I says, ‘Hello, Central.’
‘Hollo,’ says Central. ‘Connect the late
Josiah Botllish, tomb 36, with his widow,
number 1 001,’ suvs I.”
Uncle Josh did not mean that ho had
gone ,Solomon ouo better; the number of
his telephone was 1.001.
“The line was switched on, and I was
just goin' to send a doleful sound from the
tomb to comfort my sorrowing family and

OUR PATIENTS TO PASTEUR.
Aa Far as Known They Have All Es
From I lie Ncu> York World.
It has ulreudy 1 >cc:i stated tliut Miss Della
Bentoliir, n handsome girl 20 years old und
living with her parents in Beverly, N. J.,
'liesl there a week ago m the agonies of hy
drophobia. Bho was bitten last .March at
oew Albany, N. J.. by a lurge bulldog. Miss
Lentcliff returned home very much nlurmod
and suffered so much mentally in brooding
over the affair that she ' fell info a
gradual decline. The ailment alter,
"aid developed symptoms that Dr. Cunie.
of Beverly, diagnosed us typhoid fevrr-
J hen i.lood pawning showed itself. The
uaticut refused all food und later all the
sympt >ms of hydrophobia were presented,
oho nr tde sounds lik - the bal king of a dog.
At ot , r times she emitted hissing sounds,
the w 11-known symptoms of the dreaded
disea. >. During theso spells she would froth
att,> mouth and leap about in lied. On
\\ :dueclay th se convulsions became worse
an 1 the girl died. The bite was in the back
0- the shoulder.
l o ascertain whether or not the cure of
hydrophobia had made any real progress of
late years, a reporter called on Dr. Hermann
M. Biggs, the instructor at the Carnegie
Laboratory. Dr. Biggs went to Baris with
the Newark children to visit Pasteur a little
over a.year ago. While there he became
greatly interested in the physician’s theo
ries and after much trouble was admitted
to Pasteur’s laboratory and became
a zealous student. He has since
continued his experiments, aud with
Dr. Valentine Mott now stands at the head
of the profession m the specialtv of treating
cases of h ydrophobia. At this time, how
ever, he is not a zealous disciple of Pasteur.
tV bile admitting that some cures have seem
ingly been effected, still ho says the tests are
only in an exjierimental stute, and much of
the faith he lmd at first has been shaken.
“Two cases,” said Dr. Biggs, “that might
be called positive cures, although not treated
by me, came under my observation. The
first was that of Mrs. John B. Ellis, of
Bartow-on-tho-Sound, over a year ago.
Mrs. Ellis was bitten by a pet collie dog
that afterwards died in convulsions. No
symptoms of hvdrophobia presented them
selves, but still Mrs. Ellis became very much
alarmed. At the solicitation of friends she
at last concluded to go to Paris and be
treated by Pasteur.”
Dr. Biggs was of the opinion that the
lady returned homo cured. To ascertain
more (ully about the case the reporter called
at Mr. Ellis’ office, at No. 1 .‘JO Front street.
His secretary said that Mrs. Ellis went to
Paris soon after she was bitten. “In case,”
he continued, “any alarming symptoms
showed themselves the family physician ac
companied Mrs. Ellis.
“Arriving in Paris, she at once entered
the hospital and Pasteur ix-gan his treat
ment. For two weeks she was daily inocu
lated and then pronounced cured. Mrs.
Elfis stayed several weeks longer abroad
before she returned home.
“Since then she has enjoyed perfect health
and at present is spending the summer at
South Hampton. Mrs. Eilis, however, will
never forget her terrible experience while
being treated. She says it all seems to her
now like a hideous nightmare. All Pasteur’s
patients were at the time treated in one
ward. There could be met persons from all
parts of the world—Russians, Poles. French,
Germans, Arabs anil Americans. The scum
of the population of largo cities as well as
persons of high rank entered together and
awaited their turn for inoculation. Others,
who were badly afflicted with the disiase,
made the surroundings hideous with their
cries. It would take a very great induce
ment to make Mrs Eilis again undertake the
Returning to Dr. Biggs the reporter was
told of the second case. Last June a little
boy, named Charles Treadwell, of Mineola,
L. 1., was bitten by a dog which evidently
had rabies. “He was placed under my
care,” said the doctor, “but for prudential
reasons I sent him to Pasteur, lie remained
abroad two weeks, received treatment every
day anil returned home. Since then he has
bezn perfectly well aud has shown no signs
Continuing, the doctor said: “Pasteur’s
theories in public and professional opinion
have had many ups and downs. At
first they were hailed with delight,
and Pasteur was proclaimed a saviour of
mankind. Then opinion reacted and every -
I xxly lost faith in the doctor. Now comes
the report of the British Commission which,
by stat ing that they believe Pasteur has dis
covered a method by which animals can bo
protected from the infection of rabie6, again
installs Pasteur in a high place. But that
report has not changed my ideas at all. I
consider that report as coming from the
commission's secretary, Mr. Victor Hossley,
alone. Over a year ago, while iu London, I
dined with Mr. Hossley, and he convinced
mo he was then prejudiced in Pasteur’s
favor. His report, therefore, must be taken
“What is Pasteur’s method of treatment
at present ?”
“His method now is such that I would not
wish him to try it on me. He can first try
it on the dog. Bat this is his treatment:
For small bites through the clothing, the
first day lie gives three inoculations with
medullas Iff, 11 and 10 days old. The second
day three inoculations with medullas 9, 7
and 8 days old. The third day three inocu
lations, 6, 5 and 4 days old. From then
until the ten days he gives one inoculation a
day, the medulla varying in strength as lie
sees fit. His intensive treatment, applied to
persons bitten on the head and face or
when patients have arrived late, is
as already told, with intervals of
two to four days for four, five, or even six
weeks. Among the persons inoculated by
this intensive method there have been nine
deaths from a form of rabies hitherto
almost unknown in a human hiring, namely,
piralytic rabies. Dr. Valentino Mott has
told me that in his inoculations death was
almost invariably followed after subdural
injections of the virus. So far as the results
obtained go they show that there is sonic
lieculiar nerve poison that Pasteur is ex
ix'rimentmg with. This poison is probably
t hat of rabies, and when attenuated and
used for inoculation in a prescribed man
ner, grants a certain degree of insuscepti
bility to the strongest virus.”
“If such is the case, doctor, what are poo
ple to dot”
“Let them do as the British Commission
state in their report: ‘lf the protection by
inoculation should prove permanent the dis
ease might lie suppressed by thus inoculat
ing all dogs, but it js not supposed that such
inoculation would lie voluntarily adopted
by all owners of dogs, or even could lx' en
forced on them. Police regulations would
suffice if they could bo rigidly enforced.
But to make t hem effective it would bo nec
essary, (1) that they should order the de
struction, under certain conditions, of
all dogs having no owner or wan
dering in either town or country
(2.) That the keeping of useless dogs
should bo discouraged hv taxation or other
means. (3.) That the bringing of dogs from
countries in whicli rabies is prevalent should
be forbidden or subject to quarantine. (4.)
That in districts or countries where rabies is
prevalent muzzles should bo compulsory,
and dogs out of <lx>rs, if not muzzled or
led, should he taken by the police as sus
jiected.’ There nre examples sufficient to
prove that by these or similar regulations
rabies, and consequently hydrophobia, could
lie in this country stamped out or reduced
to an mnnunt far loss than has hitherto
been known. If it is not thus reduced it
may Ixi accepted as certain that a largo
number of persons will every year require

THE MORNING NEWS: THURSDAY. AUGUST 4, 1887.
Points from An Observer Who Has
Shaved His Fellows for Thirty Years.
From the New York Sun.
‘•lt is not true that peachy-cheeked boys
aro the easiest to shave,” said one of the
officers of the Barbers’ Union, who has
worked at his trade over thirty years.
“Tlie easiest men to shave arc fat men.
The fatter a man is the less work it is for a
barber to shave him. It is not the size of a
man’s face so much or the strength of his
beard as the chance u barber has to get at it.
When a tnan is thin and the bones of his
face stick out at angles a liarber lyust lxi
careful or ho will run his razor through The
skin by trying to cut too long and wide a
stroke. With a thin man he must go along
a little at a time, while on a fat man he
takes a heavy razor with a wide edge and
mows the beard off.
“Boys are not easy to shave well. The
hair on their face has no strength, and the
razor glides over it without taking it off,
or the barber leaves patches which ho
doesn’t notice. The sharper a razor is the
worse it is to shave fuzz with it. It takes
some time for the fuzz to toughen, and until
it toughens and has some resistance to it the
barber is bothered in shaving. It is not so
much the strength of the beard that causes
trouble in shaving as it is the tenderness of
the skin. The skin of boys and young men
is more tender than the skin of older men.
That makes the barber take more care to
avoid cutting through. A tough beard on
a tough face is not so bad as an easy beard
on a tender face.
“Red beards are worst. I do not mean
auburn beards (I have an auburn beard my
self), but those red beards that grow out
like wire and have thin skin under them.
There are black beards that are as tough as
those wiry ml ones, but a man with a tough
black lieard usually has a tough skin, and
you can mow the hair oif him, while rod
bearded men have cranky skins. It is bet
ter to have the same 1 larbcr slut vo you, on
account of the peculiarities of hair and skin
that every man has. The hair of the face
does not grow in an even grain, and nobar
ber who shaves you the first time will take
it just right. If you have a tough skin, im
proper shaving will not matter so much, but
if your skin is tender, little pimples will
break out where the razor went the wrong
way. Then, a barber becomes acquainted
with the soft and hard spots of your face
and makes allowances. It is better hi have
a fairly gooil barber shave you steadily than
to change around among the best.
“Curly hair is easier to cut than straight
hair because it is softer. The softer and
finer hair is the less work it is to cut it.
Most people think that curly hair is hal'd to
cut, but that depends on the toughness of it.
Somi> hair is so tough that it blunts the scis
sors. The oftener hair is cut, the hurder it
is to cut it. Black or red hairis the hardest
to cut, as the hair is stronger. Fair, curly
hair is easiest. It is a great deal with hair
cutting as with shaving. The barber who
knows about, you will give you 1 letter
satisfaction than the liarber who doesn’t.
“There is one thing about barbers that I
have often wondered over. There are more
bald barbers in proportion than there are
bald meai in any other business. I do not
know why barbers become bald. Perhaps
it is worry, or, more likely, it is thought.
Barbers are great thinkers. Their toil at
shaving or cutting hair is, to a certain ex
tent, mechanical, and it leaves the mind
free. That may account for the number of
bald barbers, but 1 have never been able
quite to explain it. Barbers used to wear
their hair long, and take great care in hav
ing each lock oiled and carefully curled, but
only some of the old-time barliers do that
now. The new barbers have become dun
dies, and wear their hair short. They are
too careful about their personal appearance.
“Preachers take more care of their hair
than anybody elso, and none of them wear
longhair. They havoall kinds of beards
and huir, just as other men, but they ar
range their hair and beards differently.
Now, there isn’t any man that I would rather
have shaved than Henry Ward Beecher.
He hod a nice, fat, easy face. ButTnlmage
—well, he’s too thin in the face, and his
lower jaw is not smooth enough. There are
angles in the jawbones, and I’d be afraid to
scrape the skin off one of them. Catholic
priests are seldom bqld, especially the priests
who have their tonsures shaved. That pre
serves the hair on top of the head. Protest
ant preachers usually wear long hair. Asa
class their hair is longest.
“Doctors are careful of their hair, but
many of them grow bald or gray. I havo
a theory that graym-ss is caused by the
loss of lime and iron in the system, and
doctors must lose their lime and iron quicker
than preachers. Some doctors think it
helps them in their practice if they grow
“Brokers build a lot on their personal ap
liearanee, but they do not (jay sufficient at
tention to their hair. They put it off on their
barbers instead of looking after their huir
themselves. A man must brush his hair
often if he wants it to look right. A broker
goes to a barber shop in the morning to be
shaved, and has his hair brushed then in
stead of looking after it himself.
“Newspaper men take less care of their
hair than men in nny other business. They
wear it cut short to save them the time and
trouble of brushing it. Men who work on
newspapers are a short-haired race.
“Storekeepers, except in tho dry goods
line, do not wear short hair. The further
up in the store you get the longer is the
hair worn. The clerks and salesmen have
short, Rpruce hair, while the heads of the
firms could tickle their noses with their
“Bartenders and actors are among tho
men who travel on their jiersoual appear
nine, but they do not impart sufficient indi
viduality to their hair. They give the
whole care of their head over to some bar
ber who possibly is not competent for the
task. A man should take an interest in his
own hair. It is something to be thought
over and to bo made something of. A man
should try different arrangements of his
hair and beard to see which are most be
coming, and should consult with his barber
as he dots with his physician. A barbor
cannot do what’s licet for a man unless the
man takes a personal interest in it. The
owner of the hair should supply the fullest
information to the barber, who then can
act witli intelligence.”
