The cremattoa of the remains
of tlie dlstiagulflked surgeon Dr.
Samuel D. liruas, in aecordancu
with his own denlie, has natural-
ly attracted much attention, and
been the sntyeetof eon vernation
not only IntkieoHy but through-
out the country. Tlie thought
naturally ariaes: Are we coming
to Pagan practice of disposing
of the remains uf the dead, or is
this to be considered an ex-
ceptional case, an evidence of
the peculiar views of Dr. Gross,
but which will be without any
Influence upon fhneral customs
hereafter! There has been in
all ages a strong contrast be-
tween the usages of Christian
communities and those of
heathen belief. The Greeks and
Romans burned their dead. It
has been suggested that they
adopt that oractice for sanitary
reasons. Concerning the pro-
priety of such an assignment of
cause there may be doub^
Among the ancients sanitary
scicnce was an undevclo|H>d
philosophy. Human health took
care of itself. Surgery was sub

practice of medicine was rude

Republicans carried New York '
by a rousing majority. In 1870

Democracy, making a change of I
nearly 1«m ,immi votes. In 1880
the Democrats, under other
leadership than Tilden's, lost
the state again by a large ma-

In 1872 Governor Dix curried
New York for the Republicans
bv 50,4*10 majority. In 1874
Tilden led the Democrats and
bent Dix by A2.000, making a
change of over 100,000 votes. In
1880, as stated above, the in-
vincible Tilden was not in the
lend and the state was lost
Who can doubt after reflect-
ing on these figures that victory
can beassurecftothe Democrats
with Tilden, and that it is en-
dangered under any other lead-
ership. It is essential to the
Democrats that they (tarry N«w

taken the state out of the Re-

revert to them when he was put
aside. In like manner we car-

Jesus Christ, and my body be

mon expression. Frequently
minute directions were given as
to the method and place of

tuiit rals. "Kaiill to earth, dnst

the only thought, was that iu
time the corruptible body would

Dealing with death, and most
familiar with the causes which
bring it on, and with theorgunic
changes which follow, the meni-
l>ers of the incdical profession,
in great proportion, nave given
as little attention to the dis
posal of their bodies after death
as their patients. There are few
instances in which solicitude for
the disposal of tlie bodies after
death have been shown by phy- j
slciaus. There can scarcely be
found a record of any distingu-
ished medical man ordering that
his own body should tie given
up for dissection. Autopsy has
been ordered in some cases, but
for a general destruction of the
flesh by the scul]n>l and knife,
the cutting 1111 of the organs, the
mincing of the parte toshreadv,
there cannot lie many distingu
islied medical examples. In this
city doctors lived and died long
after the study of anatomy was
introduced by Dr. Shlppen.
Usually their remains werejuro-
tectedny their relatives from
danger of the dissecting knife.
A prominent instance of fear of
dissection—at least, so it was
thought—created a great deal of
talk Tn this city over forty-five
years ago. There was no phy-
sician or surgeon of his time
who was more eminent and most
widely known than Dr. Philip
Syng* Physic. Ills merits and
in 17V9. When he returned to
Philadelphia theyellow fever of
1708 had Just broken out. There
was a place for him at once as
physician at the Bush Hill Hos-
pital, and his serv ices there lie-
came so utilversally known that
confidence was at once placed
in the young doctor, and he
found himself in a position for
progress and rapidf success in
his profession. Klected one of
the surgeons of Pennsylvania
Hospital in 1704, and physician
to the Philadelphia llospltal iu
the succeeding year, his success
in surgery was remarkable and
Ills lectures so interesting and
instructive tliut the students of
the University invited him to
lecture to them upon the prac-
tice of surgery. The course cf
these youitg men eoatfmlled the
trustees of the institution to es-
tablish the Chair of Surgery, a
new one, specially for Dr.
Physic. As nn anatomist Dr.
Physic was Ute equal of any one
in the profession; itecessurily so,
because without the most
minute knowledge of anatomy
III1 could Uot have succeeded
with the knife in delicate oper-
ations upon I he living. Dr.
Physic held the Chair of Sur-
gery in the University for nine-
teen years, and was tlteit trans-
ferred to the Chair of Anatomy,
«Itich he ludd for twelve yenrs
longer, and retired emeritus iu
1831. lie died November lAth,
1837, aged 00 years.
It may be said that in his case
there was no funeral. The
anatomist who had done so
much to learn the formation of
the human body by the dissec-
tion of the dead sliruuk in his
lifetime from the thought of u
similar disposition of his own
remains. His directions were
minute as to what should

was done. According to the re-
|N rt at the time it wus found
that one lung had been entirely
destroyed und there were
cicatrix marks on the other,
showing that tubercles had lieen
formed and healed. The body
of Dr. Parrish after litis was

lone with his body after his
death. Dr. Gross, it is said,
directed that no one should see
his face after his death but ccr
tain persons named by him. Dr.
Physic was even more parti-
cular. Only two of the mem-
bers of his* family, previously
named, were to he allowed to
dee or touch his lxtdy. He de-
sired no speedy funeral. He
wished no preservation of his
remains in ice or other methods.
His directions were that his
body should lie in the lied in
which he died, and in a warm
room, for several days. There
was no limit as to tlie time. The
directions were that decomposi-
tion should be ascertained to
have set in lieyond the possibi-
lity of doubt. It wus not only
the belief that such was the case
which was permitted, but all the
circumstances and indications
were required to be such that
should be satisfied of the fact.
When this was ascertained the
Itody was to be wrapped up in
a coffin and buried, and that
without any ceremony. When
the facts occame known they
created a great sensation. Peo-
ple thought that Dr. Physic had
either known of some distress-
ing cases of premature buriul
during the course of his exiM.'ri-
ctice or tlutt he had an irrepressi •
ble horror of putting his own
body to the treatment which he
himself had pructiced with hun-
dreds of tlie dead. The topic
was one of wonder ami s]iecula-
tion for a long time.
Three years after the death of
Dr. Physic, Dr. Joseph Parrish,

tioii of tlie InhI
his opinion. This course was
resolved upon by him without
hesitation and without fear. It
is uot necessary to draw any
conclusions from the cxumnle's
of Drs. Physic, Parrish or Gloss.
