While the Government does not re imburse the sender where money - is lost in registered letters, the chances for losing money so sent is only one in 2,500.

Sweet pinks, and geraniums tall, , But I looked in vain for the flower That pleased me the best of all. They pointed to floral treasures. The pride of the garden-plot. Whose names were bard to remember. And I gazed, but I saw them not; For my thoughts went wandering ever Away over land and seas. To one who in grace and beauty I knew could outrival these.

For I found my heart' s-ease there ; And though all around were blossoms A...

Davis, of Lancaster, Pa., the builder of the American incen era tor at the crematory at London Park Cemetery, recently, in the presence of a number of directors of the Baltimore Crematory Company and others, tested the furnace by burning up a 280-pound ram- The ram cost $10, and was purchased from the Balti more Abattoir Company. It was knocked in the head, so that it might retain all its blood. The ram was placed in the iron basket attached to the cremating machine, and covered with a white cotton cloth which had been saturated with alum water, to preserve it. so that it would not catch on fire from the intense ... heat, but would gradually be consumed, and would thus act as a protection to the dead body, preventing any sizzing' of the corpse in the presence of the spec tators. The ram thus covered had all the appearance of a shrouded corpse of a child of twelve years as it lay in the iron basket. The i...

BARTON ..'DEM VOLUME VI. SENSIBLE TAUTTT TAIX, .An ex-governor of Kansas, when interviewed recently by the New York Voice on the tariff questions, gave utterance to the following plain and forcible language: "Our whole tariff system is wrong in principle, because it imposes its burdens upon what we consume instead of upon what we posses, thus compelling a poor day-laborer to carry as great a financial load on the necessities of life (which rich and poor alike are compelled to have) as 1 carried by the man who is worth his millions. All financial bur dens placed by our Government upon the people should be measured, not by their capacity to consume, bat by their fthillty to pay, A man who baa $10,000 and no children is justly entitled to pay ten times the amount of 'protection1 that should be paid by the man with only $1,000 and ten children; but under our present tariff system the poor man, With ten children, carries ten times the loadop pav tPH times, mare tux than is placed upon bi...
