Dead March



Anecdote, Drollery


Medical Practitioners

    'On the evening before Dr. Clubbe died, his physician feeling his pulse with much gravity, and observing that it beat more even than upon his last visit; "My dear friend," said he, "if you don't already know, or have not a technical expression, for it, I will tell you what it beats—it beats the dead march."'
