Geneial Giant looked moie like his old
sdf in death than he had in Ihc last few
disticsaiug mouths of his life. The
leatuies weio pallid, hut had gained by
pioccss of einb ihning in fullness and com
pactness. This, say.su Tiilmin special,
lestorcd lo tint fealilies much nl the e
piessiou of ic.solutedeteiiuiuation which
leveahd the charactci of thu man. It
seemed as though death had dealt kindly
Willi li 1 111 altei all the long months in
which life had been so ciuel to him.
Aeioss tne (icueiai u ineast and min
gling with his fiosted beaul was a wiealh
ofoak leaves. It was not, as in classical
days, intended to denote tint conductor of a
city, but was simily the ic-ult ol a happy
thought which two little giilsshaicd be
tween them. Colonel (.Mill's little daugh
ter Nellie, and Di. Douglas' little Julie
plucked it in the woodson Thuitd iv. "We
got il, pipa, whcie wo often played to
gethei,"said Julie, iiddicsriug herfathei,
''and we want urn to put it 011 him"
Fiom the wall a poitiuitof Lincoln looked
down on the- dead man. Another poiliait
showed how Geneial Giant himself had
looked befoie die.i-e had pinched his te.i
tuies. The box in which the body lies is
specially constiuclcd to facilitate tho em
balming pioccss, which is not yet com
pleted, but which, if 110 unfoi seen delay
takes place, will bo finished to-moncm
The embalming has thus far been tuc
eessful. The ico in the bo is inclosed in
metal packages, placed near the body,
which is kept cold, not liy diuet contact
with the ice, but by ineansof a cool stieam
of ciiculating air. 'Tho sides of the box

The ei cutest cue is beinii taken to movent
any mistake in the embalming, so that the
