.> ALMOST BURIED ALIVE. A St. Leonard's correspondent telegraphs:â About a. week ago the wife of a well-known trades- man in St. Leonard's fell ill, and on Monday night last the doctor gave his opinion that she could not live through the next day. On Tuesday morning at ten o'clock the doctor pronounced his patient dead, the nurse who was in attendance confirming the opinion. The intimation of death naturally created great distress among the friends of the woman, who was laid out in grave clothes, washed, and prepared for burial, and, being a Roman Catholic, a crucifix was placed in her hand as she lay on her bier. When it was announced that the woman was dying a priest was sent for, but he could not attend. as he was out of town at the time. About a quarter to ten on Tuesday night, the nurse entered the room without a light for the purpose of getting something which she knew where to find. Whilst in the darkened chamber she was startled to hear a alight cry proceeding from the bed where the body lay, and she rushed from the room in a terrible fright. The widower, hearing the scream of fright, rushed into the chamber with a light, and was astonished to find that his wife had raised herself up in the bed on her elbow. She faintly uttered the words, "Where am I?" and again relapsed into a heavy sleep. The opportunity was seized of changing the shroud for proper habili- ments, and in about an hour and a half she woke again perfectly conscious. Next morning she was told of what had occurred, but was quite ignorant of everything that had passed, thinking she had only had a long sleep. She is now doing well, and it is hoped she will soon be restored to health and strength. The doctor describes the case as the most remarkable he has ever met with in his expe- rience.
