A few (Ihjs ago while a young son of Mr. ütley, janitor of the univeraity, was working iu the garden iu the rear of his father's house on Cemetery streef, in the Ct,h ward, liis shovel struck soraething whioh gaye a peculiar sound; his curiosity was aroused. Digging down about one foot and a half he discovered a wooden box about five feet and a half long and Mixteen inches wide. The boy was as much excited as if he had " struok oil," or found the buried treasure of oaptain Kidd. The news rnpidly spread BinoBg the boys of the neighborhood and, just at dark quite a nnmber assembled to open the box; they procured a piek and iron bar and raised the cover, and to their amazement instead of tinding a oheet of buried treasure they discovered a skeleton of a woman in a good state of preservation. The body must havo been buried ueveral years ago. The box was badly decayed and contained no remains of elothing. Under the sknll of the skeleton wns a oopy in a fair state of preservation of " the code of medical ethica," while at the feet of the skeleton were several well worn copies of a lecture delivered some years ngo by Dr. Palmer, extinguishina; liomoeopathy.
