Moncriil pile. Tho stage was set to a
Kehe from-''Aids," which gave the. rite
an Egyptian coloring. The scenery rep
resented thcjntcrlor of a temple on the
Nile. The solemn strains ot -Men-delsshonS
"SOSO WITHOUT WORDS"
srose from tho orchestra as an -army ol
ncopnytcs in biac;;t:owps wim triangular

caps lssncd from the wings of the stage!
They marched and countermarched around

with slivered sashes and bearing baskets

little one, as beautiful .as an angel, took
her place In front .of tbe catafalque, wblle
her sisters ranged themselves at Its aide.
When tbe baskets were emptied, the littlQ
ones melted within -the, wings, and the
orchestra played Bcthovcn's funeral
march. A tile Of acolytes, clothed In
hooded white gowns, entered from tho

coimtermarcbcd around tbe catafalque,
keeping step to the mournful strains of a
dirge, and drew up.Jn front of the neo
phytes, the white gowns $n tho left and
black ones on the right.
Then General J. 11. Hobart Ward, rc
splcndant In tbe robes of a Jewish high
priest, descended from a platform at the
back ot the stage. Walter M. Fleming
and John F. Collins, tbcrasslstant priests,
accompanied him. - Fleming's arms were
bare. Both he and Collins wore rich
robes, and might have been easliy.mls

The three priests mounted a 'dais over

passed around the catafaiquo .and sang

'- The high priest then delivered a short
lnocatlon, and tbe acolytes raised their
torches and again marched round the
funeral pile. Alter another chorus the
marching and countcr-niarchlng was re

with a wbltu-robcd figure, and In thli
