Three days after having her ears bored for car rings, a young lady of Troy, Y., be came deaf, blind and speechless, and finally died of erysipelas. When Charles V. read upon the tomb of a Spanish nobleman, "Here lies one who never kne- tear," he wittily replied, ;Then he nev er snuffed a candle with his fingers." There are few persons who, were they cer tain of death on their seventeenth birthday, would think of preparation. To-morrow may be the gate of an eternity, and yet they go on in their folly.
