A Man Ifonrned as Detf Retaras Hmm
Insane and Almeet Naked.
Tbe sudden disappearance of Charles
0. Burbank, a young and. very worthy
citizen, of Medford, Mass., on the even-
ing of September 28th, the general sup-
position that he was drowned, and the
details of the efforts Since made for tbe
recovery of his body are fresh in the
minds of the. people. _.8.o general was
the belief that he was deaa that hun-
dreds of people were,.daily engaged in
dragging tho Mystio' River, on '.which
Mr. Burbank was in the habit of row-
ing, being led to the supposition that
he was drowned, from the foot that his
boat was found on the banks of the
river, out of its Usual place, and broken.
On Wednesday evening the.missing
man, whom his wife and family bad
mourned as dead, was unexpectedly
found in Boston. Mr. Win. A. Thomp-
son, a' Boston jeweler, living in Mea-
ford, while purchasing a railroad ticket
for Edgeworth, found him in the Boston
and Maine depot.. While standing there
a man came up behind and purchased
a ticket for Edgeworth, and started to
walk away. A side glance at the man
caused a sensation similar to an electric
shock upon'Mr. Thompson. Like a flash
of llghtulng he was impressed; that the
party was Captain Burbank, although
he did not see ms face. Much agitated
and possessed of a peculiar feeling,
which he says he cannot desoribe, he
followed the, to him, apparation, spoke
to it, and getting no answer clutched it
by the arm, aud In a semi-frightened
voice exclaimed, "Burb, are you going
homef" Turning his haggard face to-
ward his interrogator, the lost captain
said, "Yes, I am going to Edgeworth."
Thompson replied that he was going
there, too, and they would go together.
Burbank was found to be a complete
wrcok. What was the matter he did
not and could hot explain; he was wan-
dering in his mind, and so Weak that he
kept falling asleep. It was with great
difficulty that Thompson succeeded in
getting him; home, he was so weak;
Burbank's family were overwhelmed
with astonishment and joy. It seemed
to her who hid for nearly three weeks
been widowed^ as If the' grave tod
given up. its dead. The joy of one of
the little boys, who had for days stood
at tbe window anxiously watching each
train, was indescribable. Burbank said
he had been in New York, and had'
written his family from that oity. Tho
doctors are ngW examining the case,and
aro inclined to think it a case of insani-
ty, brought oh by overwork as a brick-
layer, in Boston, coupled with dejoction
at finding, his salary reduced and,his
services seemibgly not appreciated.
The doctors say It Is a critical case,—
This peculiar spocles of the feathered
crcatlon, known to no other country but
California, and of extreme scarcity, is a
curiosity that we seldom see In a day's
travel. Mr. L. Tully, of our town, and
Mr. Mtthel of Callstoga, while returning
home Inst Monday, discovered one in
the road, running along, wings half-ex-
tended, with the velocity, of an ostrich.
Although not so large, It has the os-
trich's peculiarities, runs like it and,
again, tlocs not possess tfuT power of fly-
ing, but can jump in the clear, by the as-
sistance of its wings, from twenty-live to
forty feet, raising seven or eight feet in
its jump. This also a characteristic of
the ostrich, which docs not fly, but, by
(lapping its wings and heeling and toe-
ing the dust, gets away with the turf so
as to astonish the fastest horse. Tho
roadrtinncr did the same thing, and not
only astonished Mr. Tully, but Mr.
Mlthel also, who wus making a terrific
race on horseback after it, the object
being to run it down'. During the race
the roadrunner took to the low-limbed
trees frequency, jumping from branch
to branch, making it aeoldedly inter-
esting as well as hot for the pursuers,
as Mr. Tully had to climb ana drive it
out. It was finally run down and cap-
tured by Mr. Tully, but soon thereafter
escaped from tbe box, and before it
could be run down again, it was caught
by the dog and iihfoi'tunately killed. In

The Wastes ef Lift.
Recently, a man died upward of 90
years of age, without any disease. Death
occurred from the mere running down
of the system in the order of nature.
Whenever an Incident of this kind oc-
cur* it attracts attention because of its
rniritv. It is deemed quite out of the
usual order of events. People do not
often die nutitnjlly.or from oldltge, but
unuaturally—tliat i*, f'""1 disease or ac-
cident*. There ares'1" such wastes of
life in any other part 01' 'he animal king-
dom as among human li .'"S**

ago. But the casualties Mf war liguro
only as a small Item uudut that head in
the destruction of life. Exposure, dis-
sipation In Its various format high liv-
ing, and low living, bud ven-
tilatloA, the risk and revulsions
of business, and unnatural excite,
incuts account for a part of this waste.
At a time when the physical constitu-
tion ought to be In iUt prime, there is a
breaking down of the system. The suf-
ferers havo kccain one way or another
discounting the future. Instead of fill-
ing up tiui rounded measure of ltfe they
have crowded it into half a measure.,
They have lived perhapsmore Intensely,
and have died in it mot-o tragic way—
for all deaths are in some sense tragic
which aro the result of disease rather
than old uze.
No doubt there is much in mo lern
civilization which teuds to the conserva-
tion of life; There is better protection
from the elements in the matter of
houses and clotbing,\and better food.
But over against these advantages we
may set the more abject poverty of civi-
lization, and the greater exactions in
the matter a# tabor, The wear and tear
of modern life has-probably never been
exceededin any age of the world. The
spirit of contentment if an obsolete fac-
tor in the vital forces. Formerly men
were passing- rich whh fifty thousand '
dollars. They retired early and .spent
tho remainder of their days in compara-
tive comfort. But now no nun is 00-
counted rich who has not several bun-.
dred thousands, and eVeh then his ex-
penditures are on so large a scale that
be cannot think of retiring.
The saddest side of this waste Is seen
here in the constant procession of insane
people to the asylum. There Is'bordly
an bonr of any day that Some Sheriff'hr
other custodian is not on the way to the
asylum with one to half a down insane
people. Probably the greater part%f
this human wreckage oomes from an!- -
mal indulgehco. But the worries, din-
appointments and revulsions of business
account for mtich more. The wastes of
life from insanity in this State alone are
fearful. One larger asylum Is orowded, ■
and the large and oostly net* onw will
soon be filled to the utmost. ommMp..
Surely-in this State, where the ollnptn -
Is on the side of Jong. life, and where •
there is very little real sufferings frosa
poverty, the wastes, of life ought to be
reduced to the lowest fraction. Perhaps
this point will be reached when the com-
munity is older, and a more jnaerft}
spirit of contentment takes the place of

fairo the saml day and placed in the
Kosr-cl-NUo Palace. An Immense con-
course followed the body to the depot
in Alexandria, and hundreds of thous-
ands of lire wore distributed among the
poor people. The interment took place
in tho Uilah Mosque the following morn-
ing. Twenty-four bullocks, thirty cam-
els, and twenty wagons were iu the pro-
cession. These animals were laden
with bread, dates, cooked meats, and
vegetables, the wagons carried casks of
water and sirnp, and all along the route
distribution of the provisions was made
to the poor. Eunuchs, meantiihe, threw
4AO,000 pieces of silver coin to tbe peo-
ple who thronged the streets. Three
thousand priests, some clad in rioh vest-
ments of gold and silk, ^others half
naked, followed the wagons, repeating
prayers as they matehed, and clapping
theur hands; After them came tho fam-
ily of the poor young Princess and the
high officials of State, and then the cof
fin, borne by officers of rank. Behind
tliii walked three eunuchs, bearing on
golden shovels copies of tiie Koran, to
lie buried with tlio decCnsed. The cof-
fin was of simple, rough-lie.'w 11 wood,
and tho corpse Was sewn up iu lineu
cloth. Upon the conin were placed the'
jewels of tho princes, worth a million

priests .slaughtered thc twenty-four bid-
locks before the mosque, roasted them
and ntc them up. The priests remained
for seven days iu the neighborhood of

parted. The Khedive was so overe.oine
with grief that he could not receive nny
