The same sorts will have much les weight in proper toa to bulk after being dried out by a cold winter.

The Cremastoeia Association of Ph ! delphia is preparing to build the largest and costliest crematory chapel in the W world. It will have a front of sixty Idx feet, a depth of one hundred and five At feet; the distance will be ninety feet to the top of the dome, the mat r'al will he granite, pressed red brick and terra cot- w ta, and the cost will be $40(.0:J). S- - - T The queerest thing in Boston is the re cent sale of a chur -It without the tower, which latter ii retained by a man who became the buyer under a mortgage'. The q reason is that this man thought that those who bought the church did not have sufficient arstheti' taste to prevent their tearing down the tower. llence he keeps for himself about twenty squ:tre feet of land on which the tower is built and deeds all the rest of the land with the church building to the new congre gation.

Investigating the Oil Trust. The attacks made in the courts by the Attorney General of the State on the Oil Trust is an interesting event. This gi gantie monopoly it will be remembered, created much consternation in thi4 section of country when it commenced to gob ble up all tho cotton seed oil factries and to control the markets for cotton seed and their products. It virtually shut off all competition, forcing down the price of seed and maintaining the market for oil in its own interest. It now appears ac cording to the showing of the Attorney General, that this monster concern is not a corporation in any legitimate and pro per sense. It is not based on any solid grounds, but is a colossal bubble repre sented by fictitious value and issuing to innocent buyers large amount of stock for which there is no real backing. This is what the Attorney General of Louisia na cbarges against the Oil Trust, and its real merits, whatever they may be will have to be brought out in thecourts. In an...

In Cairo, Egypt, where the proportion of blind pemons to the number of inhabitants is greatest, there is one to every twenty residents. Vivisection is not an issue in this coun try as in England. Our people take it for granted that scientific men would not torture an animal unnecessarily and un justifiably. But in England there is a society composed of influential persons ,hose work is to prevent the torturing of animals by scientific investigators.
