Stills

undertakers' slang term for still-born  children. The fee paid by nurses and others for their disposal is usually 2 s. 6 d. A separate coffin is never given; the stills  are quietly introduced into one containing an adult about to be buried. Stills  are allowed to accumulate at an undertaker's until they sometimes number as many as a dozen. Some little time back a very bulky coffin was opened, and found to contain a large quantity of small corpses packed carefully round a large corpse. This caused a little excitement, but nothing was done in the matter.
