DEATH BY VIOLENCE
IT IS PAINLESS, A3 A RULE, BECAUSE
OF THE NERVOUS SHOCK.
Til.- On-nler On* I.iirn .if IIIimmI, How
ever, lln* More Intense Is the Suf-
ferinu of the Yietlnt — FITectx of
Falls—lli-iiths From Potxnnliifc.
It is safe to say that violent death
is painless. A person suffering from a
great shock feels little or no pain, hut
If great loss of lilooil accompanies the
ncclilent then eoiulitions are different,
unit the death thus resulting is one of
Intense pain. I have observed that
pain varies Inversely with the shock.
The more violent the shock the less the
pain, unit, inversely, the less the stuck
the greater the pain. In eases where
an arm or u leg is cut off liy accident
the injured person is apparently only
stupefied and does not seem conscious
of any pain or agony. When asked
how he feels lie usually answers,
“Pretty well.” showing that lie does not
suffer greatly. In the Interval hi tween
the shock of the Injury and death lie is
apt t i appear dazed without losing
If the accident and Injury are more
Severe say both limbs or arms are
severed then there Is even It more li >-
tiei aide aliseiice of sensitiveness lo
i m the other h nil. abdominal Injuries
are followed lo the mosl excruciating
pains. A gunshot wound in the nbdo-
mrii leaves Hi injured keenly alive in
the aCIlte silli' l'illg which conics with
loss of Mood, lie Is nervous, frighten
ed. apprehensive and usually moans
or cries out In his terror. Even in nigh
the wound tuny have linen self In
dieted, in it I tit. > I every ease of this
kin I the patient cries for relii f and
wants to live. The greater the loss of
Id I the tnoie Inti'ii c the pain, IT by
chatter such a patient recovers alter
being at the |mint of death, lie i apt In
remember all his sensations following
the shot. In eases of nceldeilts lo the
arms, limbs or from falls which render
the persons lllieiiliselolls, w here they do
recover or heroine lucid, they have Ini
I'e, nlk-i-l inn of the |.11 ill they Sllll'c ■' d al
the time of the accident or anything im
mediately preceding the blow or fall.
I hud a ease of a very painful mid
ITiglllfill accident one day. A man wa ■
brought Into the hospital so mangled
tlnii lie scarcely resembled a human
being. .\n Iron girder had fallen on
him while lie was at work on a hallo
lug. II Imd crushed him horribly, ills
thighs were broken; his Imck was gush
ed mid bruised so that his tlesh fell
away in great llaps. The man seemed
lo have no |>;iin nl all and no feeling in i
bin body, I look hold of the Haps of
llesh, lull the injured creature appeared
to feel nothing.
II is a popular fallacy that those who
meet violent deaths lose coiisoloiisness
before the shock of the Mow, the fall or
the shot comes. In eases of falling
from a great height ii is generally he
llcvcd tluil the one who Is sent Hying
to the earth below dies before striking
tile bottom or becomes unconscious of
what is happening. That is not true.
Unconsciousness does not come until
the shock of concussion N felt.
If dentil does not result at once, the
l.mlti loses all knowledge of wlint Is
going on or what happened before It
received the Mow. After concussion
of the bruin produced by a fall or a
Mow the individual seldom remembers
anything connected with the accident.
Death from poisoning is one of the
most violent means of ending life. The
taking of carbolic add, which Is the
commonest mentis of poisoning, Is noth
ing short of horrible. While one might
burn one’s linger off with carbolic add
and not suffer any great pain, tho effect
would bo different If It were taken In
ternally. Up to the moment that death
comes It Is generally supposed that the
pain Is violent and acute. With some
of the other poisons, such as strychnine,
prussic add, nicotine, etc., the Intensity
of tho pain varies with the drug. In
the case of strychnine, for example, the
person lapses Into u state of oplsthoto-
uios, which Is accompanied by violent
spasms. The mind remains absolutely
clear and keenly alive to the pain till
death, which Is said to he nothing short
of terrific, comes. Oplsthotomos is u
condition where the patient rests In tho
bed, or whatever ho Is lying on, on the
back of his head and his hods, with tho
muscles of the body rigid. This condi
tion is on© of the symptoms of strych
nine poisoning, as it is of some of the
other alkaloids which produce so called
Generally speaking, death from burn
ing is most painful, but there are occa
sions when it is almost Instantaneous.—

A Cartons Tale, the Seenc of Which
lx I.niil In India.
An Indian up country paper tells n
curious tale. A rich Indy, with her two
children, both Infants, was going, it is
said, in her own "ekkn” from Itatnna-
gar to a place in the center of the Bar
tract. The driver was a trustworthy
servant of the family, and it was for
this reason that the Indy had not di
vested herself of the ornaments she
usually wore. Hut the sight of the
Jewels was too much for him, and at
un exceptionally lonely spot in that
lonely country he suddenly asked his
mistress to hand him her valuables,
tin her suspecting Ills real designs and
hesitating, the miscreant showed him
self in his real colors ami made her
and her little ones, who could barely
toddle about, get down. The horrible
thought that was working in his brain,
that of hiding Ills crime by means of
murder, bad given bis face a sardonic
look, which made the poor woman
Then the fiend bound her hand and
foot and informed her that he would
first kill her children and then do her
to death. H.v her earnest entreaties she
prevailed over him to begin with her
first, lie had an ux in his hand, with
which he aimed a blow at her; hut,
the head being loose, it (lew away and
fell a few paces off, the handle only re-
niniliilig in Ills grasp. He stepped into
the grass to look for it and disappeared
behind a tnouml. She waited her cer
tain doom with all her nerves on the
strain. She gradually fell into a
swoon, and when she came round the
first thing she saw was her husband
bending over herjiml her Imbies crying
and tugging lit her clothes.
After she had gone, a nameless un-
easlne: s seized her husband. lie could
mil reason away his vague fears, try
us he would, and at lust ho mounted
his horse and followed the “ekka.” He
had proceeded but a few miles when
the sight of his wife ami children lying
hound up with cords upon the ground
met liis eyes. And the story that his
wife told him congealed his Mood with
horror. They both then, drawn by an
irrepressible curiosity, went toward the
direction that the miscreant had taken
to pick up his ax - , and think of their
surprise when they saw his corpse nl-
ivad.v lying, hint*, putrid and bloated,

lit the Austrian Tyrol, and especially
near the town of Hotzen, there are nu
merous groups of fantastic “earth pyra
mids,” whose history forms a most cu
rious lesson in popular science. The
summit of the pyramids represents
what was at one time the surface of a
moraine or debris of a glacier, and
upon this were scattered rough bowl
ders of stone. Down would come tor
rential rains and gradually eat away
the hard rod earth except where It was
protected by a big stone. In these
cases, of course, the rain could do noth
ing else than leave a long slender pyra

off and the apex of the pyramid was
left bare it would be first worn to u
