If a gentlemanly
the name of Day
volunteers to throw
the light of his ex
perience into the
darkened places of
misery, so that
others may go and
do as he has done
and enjoy life, may
it not be reasonably called daylight?
As for instance, take the case of Captain
Sargent 8. Day. Gloucester, Mass., who
writes April 16, 1881: "Home time ago I
was suffering with -henmatism. I used a
small portion of St. Jacobs Oil and was cured
at once. have used it for sprains and never
one have known it to fail. I will never be
without a bottle." Captain Day also re
ceived a circular letter, and in reply under
dateof July 1,1887, he says: "I used the
Oil as stated and was permanently cured of
rheumatism by its use." During the inter
vening six years there had been no recur
rence of the pain. Also a letter from Mr. H.
M. Converse, of the
Herald, dated July
,9,1887, as follows:
"In response to
yours of June 22,

severe attack of

not raise her hand

applications of St, .__.

permanently, and she has had no return of

Tower Hill, Appomattox county, Va., who
writes, November, 1886: "Was afflicted for
several years with rheumatism and grew
worse all the time. Eminent physicians
gave relief had spasms, and was not ex-
ected to live was rubbed all over with St.
The first application relieved,
the second removed the pain, continued use
cured me no relapse in rive years, and do as
much work as ever." These are proofs of the
perfection of the remedy, and, taken in con
nection with the miracles performed in other
cases, it has no equal.

A friend sends to the editor the fol"

merits of being at once amusing and
suggestive. Whether Mr. Howells
would relish being identified with
realism in this way is a doubtful ques
tion, but there is at least no doubt that
such is his fate, it being one of the
penalties he pays for popularity.

I was walking along the high and
breezy eastern bank of the Upper

FUNERAL OF THE ANARCHISTS.
A Large but Orderly Crowd Follows
Their Iti-maina to the TombThe Pa
ceant Viewea by 100,000 Persons As It
Marches Through Chicago's Streets
Fielden and Schwab Taken to -Toilet.
CHICAGO. NOV. 14.A great concourse of
people followed the remains of Augusta
Spies, Adolph Fischer, Albert B. Parsons,
George Engel and Louis Lingg, the dead
Anarchists, in their funeral procession yes
terday. The day was warm, and early in
the morning crowds wended their way to
Milwaukee avenue, down which thorough
fare the parade passed. Leaving Milwaukee
avenue, it proceeded south on Desplainea
street to Lake within half a block of the
fatal spot at which the Haymar
ket bomb was exploded, thence east
on Lake street to Fifth avenue and south
to Polk street, where the Wisconsin Central
train was taken to Waidheim Cemetery.
Although there were probably 100,000 per
sona massed along the line of the proces
sion there was no disorder. The entire
ceremony, from the homes to the ceme
tery, was conducted with as much quiet as
possible in so vast a throng. The floral
offerings were many and beautiful.
The people began to gather at the Spies'
residence as early as 7 o'clock in the morn
ing. Shortly after that honr the public
were admitted to the house. A continual
stream of men and women viewed the re
mains until a little after 11 o'clock, when
preparations were began for the transfer of
the body to its last resting-place. The
grief of the stricken mother at
tills time was pognant and most ex
cessive. Her lamentations were woful in
the extrema Miss Van Zandt, Spies' proxy
wife, also desply mourned the loss of him
whom she undoubtedly loved. The sisters
and brothers of the dead Anarchist wept
constantly. Captain Black, the devoted ad
vocate of the Anarchists in and out of
court, his wife and several neighbors, did
all in their power to assuage the grief of the
afflicted ones. At a few mnutes past
noon it was announced that the
hoarse had arrived. The casket was
placed in the hearse, and escorted by mem
bers of the Aurora Turn Verein and the
Bakers' Union to the number of about 500
proceeded dowrn Milwaukee avenue to
Paulina, where a halt was made while the
hearse containing the body of Fischer fol
lowed by carriages containing the mourners
came into line.
At Fischer's late home had occurred dur
ing the morning scenes similar to
those enacted at tho Spies' residence.
Hundreds viewed the remains during
the morning. Mrs Fischer wept
continually, and the poor woman's face was
pallid and haggard At this point the Ger

The march was again begun, the next
stop being made at the home of
Mrs Parsons, where the hearse con
taining the remains of her dead hus
band wheeled into line. Here had con
gregated an immense throng. The floral
offerings here, as well as at all the other
places, were numerous and of the most ele
gant designs. Mrs Parsons' grief was most
terrible in its intensity. As the procession
moved away to the slow and swaying meas

ALBERT R. PARSONS,
MURDERED BY THE STATE OF i
I November 11, 1887.
It was a great crowd which gathered
about the former residence of George En
gel, at 286 Milwaukee avenue. Inside the
dingy little store were" the bodies of the two
dead Anarchists, Louis Lingg and George
EngeL The crush was terrific. Streat car
traffic was completely blockaded Bands in
front of the house played mournful dirges,
and so solemn was the scene that hundreds
burst into tears.
At che intersection of West Indiana street,
Milwaukee avenue and Halsted street the
procession was stopped fcr nearly five min
utes*before the crowd could be separated
sufficiently to admit of the passage of those
on foot and in carriages. The procession
then prooeeded along the route given above
to the depot. The utmost de
corum was preserved throughout
No banners of any kind were
crinied, the only flags displayed being two
of red silk covering a portion of the caskets
containing the bodies of Engel and Lingg.
The several bands scattered through the
procession played funeral dirges from
time to time, and the crowds frequently
lifted their hats as the hearse contain
ing the dead bodies passed, by. In the
crowds that congregated on Milwaukee
avenue frequent imprecations were heard
directed against, Inspector Bonfield, States
Attorney Grinnell and Judge Gary, but no
threats were heard, the talk being more in
the nature of criticism for the parts they
had taken in the trial There were over
6,000 in line.
There were thirty-five cars furnished to
convey the people to Waidheim Cemetery,
twe.va mi.e3 west on the Wiscons
Central railway. Ic was nearly 4 o'clock
when the cemetery was reached. Here
2,000 people were already assembled
A small platform had been erected just at
one side of the vault door. Upon tuis the
female relatives of the dead men took their
stand. The coffins oame one by one, and
were placed before the vault on supporta
Then the flowers were heaped up in pro
fusion on the caskets. All heads were un
covered when the coffins were borne in.
Captain Black delivered a brief oration.
Several others made short addresses and
the assemblrga quickly and quietly wended
its way to the traina The members of the
committee of arrangements, assisted by the
superintendent of the cemetery, conveyed
the coffins into the vault, with the flowers and
crimson fl gs, and the iron gate was closed
and locked At 5:30 o'clock the last men
left the vault and hurried silen ly down the
dark driveway to tbe great cemetery gate.
One after the ^other the trains, weigh ed
down with weary men and women, steamed
away toward ti.e great city, and the An
archist funeral was done.

ON THE WHEEL 1
rVhat Otonnd-the-World Stevens and
Champion Howell Say of the Sport
The popularity of 'cycling is growing.
Thomas Stevens, who has just been
around the globe on a wheel, says that the
best roads in the world are found in British
India. The Grand Trunkroad is 1,600 miles,
an unbroken highway of marvelous perfec
tion, from Pershawar on the Afghan frontier
to Calcutta. It is made of smooth, hard, nat
ural concrete, beds of which he along the
How such roads would be appreciated by
the enthusiastic 'cyclers of this country!
The wonderful achievement of Mr.
Stevens, in the face of myriad dangers, en
titles him to all his honors.
The fast riding champion of the world,
however, is Bichard Howell, of Leicester,
England. He is a splendidly made fellow,
between 25 and 30years of age, six feet high,
and weighing, in training, about 160 pounds.
He commenced riding in 1879 and in 1881,
at Belgravia grounds, Leicester, he won
the one-mile championship of the world,
beating all the best men of the day.
From that time his career has been one
of almost unbroken successes. He came to
the United States in 1884 and 1885, and at
the great Springfield tournament in. 1885,
won seven out of eight races.
In the Cycling Jvews (Eng.), October 1st,
1887^18 the following interview with him:
"What are your best performances!"
"This year I did a full mile on the track at
Coventry in 2 minutes, 85 seconds. Good
judges think, with every thing in my favor,
could do 3:30 for the distance."
"What is your system of training?"
"I eat plain good food and plenty of it. I
take a attle walk before breakf ast,and then,
after that meal, if I am loggy, ride eight or
nine miles on the track here, in thick flan
nels. After dinner I do some more 'slog
ging' work, and may be a walk and early to
But there is one idea of mine which I
have found invaluable. If I have dono too
much work or my system is out of order,
or if I don't feel quite sound, I take what 1
have used since I was 'queer' in- 1883. I
have always found thatWarner's safe cure
sets me up and puts me to rights again, and
it is a remedy which I believe in and tell all
my friends about.
In the winter-time especially, when you
can easily understand I am not so careful of
my health as in the spring, summer or
autumn, I have found it invaluable.
All I want, to beat the fastest bicyclist in
the world, is plenty of practice, an occa
sional dose of my favorite, and my ma
When lam about right in sight I con
tent myself with short, sharp bursts as
hard as ever I can go on the track, and
when I can cover 440 yards in thirtyseconds
with a flying start, I reckon to be moving as
well as-I want to.
Bicycling is glorious sport, but it has its
physical ill effects which, however, can be
easily overcome by the method used by

The proprietor is a little man with
big flowing whiskers, and a soft in
sinuating voice. He began dealing in
second-hand books about nine years
ago. He started with a capital of $7,
which he spent in erecting a little
stand on the sidewalk in Chatham
street, and spreading over it a scant
supply of song books.
He sold the "Penny Songster." Then
he began buying old books and exchang
ing them for others at half what they
cost. Pretty soon he started another,
stand, and then he opened a little store
and six years ago he established his
headquarters in Park Row, where the
reporter found him.
"There is about 100 per cent profit
in the bus ness" he said: "and it is a
business that always moves more
or less flourishingly. I sell books at
halfthe publishers' prices, and whpn
they are exchanged for others I allow
one quarter tho original cost. How did
I get so much stock on band? Why by
buying large quantities at a time from
pi-inting houses that are going out of
the business. I do a good deal of
patching, and a book has to be pretty
old that can't be pasted and fixed up
so as to be presented for sale. The
only books that are worthless are those
that have some leaves missing."N. Y.
