Burning, drowning, ~ven the most hideous mutilation under a railway train, is as nothing compared with burying alIve. Strangely enc:ugb, tbis uoiversal horror seems to have produced no desiro to guard against burying alive. We all fear it, and yet practically no ooe takes aoy "trouble to avoid the risk of· lt happeniIIg in his own ~ase. or in that of the rest of mnnki.cl. It wonld be the simplest thing in the world to take away all chanoe of burying alin; and yet the world remains indil!'erent and enjoys its horror undisturbed by the hope of r emedy. It would only be necc88Al'Y to enBct that no burial should tak.e place before recourse had been had' to some simple teat-suoh aa openi~g an important vein-and the risk of premature interment would be vanished; and yet no one thinks of making that a Bine qua non to ~he gr&nting of R death certificate. We . do nol allo .. p.o!'l. to b. buried unlil a dootor has oertified the canse of death, but we, in many ca.seI, prao· tically allow the death to be aaaumed, and do not insist that a cery,in- medi· cal ritual shall ~e gone through in order to insure that death baa reo.lIy take~ place. No doubt in many cues-nay, in nine thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine oases in ten thousanuthe opening of a vein (if that "o~ld be the ultimate test; lor on this mat· ter we, as laymen, can of course offer no opinion worth having) would be the merest formality ; but every now and then some suoh simple forI!laIi ty would aa.ve a life, and possibly prevent tt.e uDconlOious in8iotion of the most awful torture of which the human roind can conceive. Of course it can be etjd that the danger of burying alive is grouly ezagger~ted. Indeed, there are many men who stoutly deny that it exu,ta at alIas a danger wbioh call rouonably "e taken into accounl ThelJ8 men class it with the riak of the .arth being bakad brown by a sudd.n increase 01 activIty in the sun or by the impact of a oomet. With this view we entirely disagree. We do not believe that there are very many-oases of burying alive, but we cllDnot doubt that a distinct percentage 01 CBBeS takes place every year. The Science Notes of Tuesday's Daily Ohronicle contain a string 01 facts in regard to burial alive of a very horrible k.ind. One story is q'iloted from a medical monograph 011 Iho anbject by Dr. Franz Hartmann, of BostEn. UA. young lady was actually prepe:red for tbe grave while conscious ot all · that WB! passing, yet, like a. person in a nightmare, quite unable to stretcb out her limbs, to ory, or to open her eyca. It was only when she perspired in her mental agony that the mournors sus· peoted the true state of matters. Then sbe awoke a.b.d uttered a mOat pitiable shriek. It Here the fact that the trance was not of tbo unconscious kind saved the wc.man's Iffe. If her brain had been entranced, aa well alJher body, !he wonld not have been subject to the mental agony whicb, acting on ber tissues, gave warning of her state. Mr. Will· iam80o, a correspondent of the Daily Chroniole, pointe out that we need not go to Amarica "lor proofs of thi.9 ter· r ible danger, inMmucb u case. are not infrequently reported in the daily and weakly press at home." The 101- lowin&" he points out·, Me the titles 01 recont cas~s from wl!ll·known journals. ' ~copies of whioh lie before me;" "Buried Alive," "A. Grewsome Narrative," I'Prem,atnre Burial," " J'\Iistaken for Dead," "A. Woman's Awful Expe· r ience," 'IAlmost Bu.ried While Alive," "A. Woman Buried Alive, '.' uRevivication After Buria1," "A Lndy Nearly Buried Alive," "~ouuds From Anoth er Coffin," "The Deael Alive, II etc. That a person should be able to d.ra ... up this list from the newspapers of ' the last week or two is suffic~ently remarkable. Thcse all allude to cases in whicb the discovery was actually Irade that death bad not taken place. Can it bo called sensational or imaginative to assert that there must havo been IlS many or more cases in which the discovery was not made? As we hava said above, "'we do not see why it should not be part of the duty of the dootor who grants the death certificnte to see tbat the person laasumed to be dend is actually de.d, .WIIT .II."ld II. a.1 ...
