BURIED ALIVE [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

BURIED ALIVE The'Pittsburg Republic- of Wednesday has the following -. Several years since a beautiful young lady, hardly eighteen years of age, who resided in the vicinity of Allegheny, became suddenly sick, and although her parents, who idolized her, summoned the most skilful physicians, the disease increased in virulence for some days, and, apparently terminated fatally. Her death was a heavy blow to her mother, who loved her fondly, and after wailing the usual time prescribed by custom, the body was interred in one of tbe cemeteries adjoining our sister city. A few weeks ago the lady's father dlea, when she expressed a desire to have his body interred with the remains of her daughter. The request was so natural that no objections were made to it. The grave of the departed fair one was opened, and upon the body being exhumed, it was discovered, with horror, that the body had been turned in the coffin. An investigation proved too conclusively that thepoor young lady had been...

woman men* [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 5 March 1869

woman men* Secaefeod y gets off the fMlowing beautiful paragraph on the closing night of the week. There fa a volume of truth Jit it, Saturday night makes the people human, sets their hearts to beating softly, »s they used to do before the world turned them into war drums and jarred them to pieces with tattoos. The ledger closes with a clash; the iron door vaults comes to with a bang; up go the shutters with a will; click goes the key in the lock. It is Saturday night, and business breathes free again. Homeward ho! The door that has been aiar all week gently closes behind him: the world is shut out. Shut out? Shut in, then rather. Here are his treasures after all and not in the vault, and not in the book—save the old family Bible, and not in the bank. May be your a bachelor, frosty and forty. Then poor fellow! Saturday night is nothing to you just as you are nothing to anybody. Get a wife, blue eyed or blackeyed, but above all true-eyed; get a little home, no matter how little...

SHATimia CBWJu A &Uow who had tseeashaysdi* China says that the barber first stropped the razor on his leg, and the* did thftshewtag without any lather. The customer "remonstrated, but'was tokl that lather was entirely useless, and had a tendency to make the hair stiff anil tough, and was therefore never need by persons who had any knowledge of the face and its append ages. After the heard had been taken off—and it was done in a very short time—the barber took a long, sharp, needle shaped spoon, and began, to .explore his customer's ears. He brought up from numerous little crevices bits of wax and dirt that had been accumulating; since his childhood. The barber suddenly twisted his suijleefs neck to one side in such a manner that It cracked as if the vertebras had been dislocated. "Hold on!" shouted the party, alarmed for the safety of his neck. "All right," replied the tenao, "me no hurt you;" and he continued to jerk and twist the neck until it was limber as an olh w...

jtttojl THE OLD FOLKS' BOOM [Newspaper Article] — Father Abraham — 12 March 1869

jtttojl THE OLD FOLKS' BOOM The old man sat by the chimney side, His face was wrinkled and Wan; And ho leaned both hands on ids stout oak canp, A.s if all hid work was done. His coat was of good old fashioned grey, The pockets were deep and wide, Where his " specs" and his steel tobacco box Lie Muigty side by side. The old man liked to stir the Are, 8o near him the tongs were kept; Sometimes ho mused as he gazed at the coals, Sometimes he sat and slept. What saw he in the embers there? Ah I picture* of other yean ; And now and then they wakened smiles, But as often started tears. His good wife sat on the other side*, In a high-backed flag seat chair ; I see 'neath the pile of her muslin cap The sheen of her silvery hair. There's a happy look on her aged face, As she busily knits for Mm, And Nellie take* up the stitches dropped, For Grandmother's eyes are dim. Their children came and read the news, To pass the time each day ; How it stirs the blood in the old man's heart To hea...

I looked down complaeently at my drees of pink crape, dew-dropped over with crystal, and the trails of pink azalans that caught up its folds here and there. A diamond bracelet encircled one round white arm, and a little cross blazed fitfully at my throat. I had never looked kettea) and I felt a sort of girlish pride as my eye met the fairy reflection in the mirror. "Come, Gerald, make haste!—why, yon havenH begun to dress yet!" Where were my wifely instincts that I did not see the haggard, drawn look in his features—*be fevered light in his eyes? "I can't go to night, Madeline—I am not well enough." "You are never 'well enough' to oblige me, Gerald. I am tired of being put off w ith such excuses." He made no answer but dropped his head in his hands on the table before him. "O , come,Gerald," I urged, petulantly, "It is awkward for me to go alon...
