Up in Harlem may is tho choice of palls in
diver, stone, coachman'H drab or a lighter tint
known as "atmospheric gray." The draping
of the casket depends on taste, but as a rule
designs aro cry simple, anatiow cordorsomo
small cap-nails finishing tho edge.
For stuuly manhood there are a number of
brown cloths to select fiom: tho matron's bici
is draped in a rich kliatlo of wine; young
mothers are buried in some ncuti il tint of pink
or bluo; whito broadcloth is tho icculation

At a funeral which occurred in the vicinity of
l,tnox Hill this Winter tho family undertook
to carry out a design that literally startled the
undertaker receiving tho order.
The deceased had suffered ft om cancer of tho
worst form, and an nothing could bo dono in
tlio way of a cuto the tn, wan pronounced
fatal eome fout months before the end came.
Shortly alter this decision tho family ordered
a casket made that should open on the sido uiul
show the dreamless nice per in profile. Tho box
was copper-lined and draped with thenhadcof
blue known in tho drygoods world as " French
blue." On the edge, bh a finish, wore some
twenty screws, wfth waslicrs to match the cop
per plate, which was mil-fourth of an inch
thick and inscribed with the name and the) cars
of birth aud death.
The bed was rtllowed and lined with cream
colored cloth and tho body wan drettcd in a
Japanese robe of lighter bluo than the drapery.
When death camo tho remains wcro so wasted
from diseaso that they could not be exposed;
but nevertheless tho casket with tho copper
trimmings that oponed at tho side gave society
some new theme of conversation.
While of no particular interest whatever to
the undertaker, if left to his own judgment ho
will more often select brown for tho funeral bed
than black, for tho reason that tho contrast
between death's pallor and that sombre hue in
so very unple asaut.
For the sensational, thcio arc plush, velvet
and embossed goods in all shades of pearl, laven

Rome very queer talea might be told by the
taciturn and supposedly woful members of the
profession regarding bnrial clothes, and, as a
rule, habits are discouraged, and to make the
dead as life-like as possible an undertaker will
always advlso the uso of somo favorite gown
When the circumstances of tho family are
known to be straitened, the shabby suit of
clothes is carried off by the undertaker to his

But the real bond botween tho djcr and the
dead is crape. Terhaps jou think that a fresh
rosette and ribbon are put on every door at
which tho Reaper knocks ? If so, you err.
Crape cots from $7 to $12. and a rental of

Ihoro is plenty of evidence to show that since
the first uso of tho present system, in 18RA, the
body is as perfect as at the time of bnrial, with
tho exception of tho oyo-balls, which as yet can
not be preserved.
As timo advances tho skin becomes more and

and thtro Is neither odor nor decay of any sort.

unless death results from comulslons. A com

It is no longer tho custom to have either rela

is carriod by hired pall-bcarcis from the house

It is something of a travostr on grief that un
less an undertaker collects his bill before tho
two weeks of weeping isomer his chances for a
settlement are very poor.
Tear time is tho best time in the language of
tho trado, for after tho eyes have dried, social
calculations in profit and loss engross the sur
vivors, and exceptions are taken to every Item
that admits of variation or reduction.
As a rule, all tho bad debts come from people
who aro well able to cancel them, and there is
hardly an undertaker in tho profession who
does not carrv somo account liquidated by a

Henry Kochii, a gilder, died suddenly at his

Di. Donlin and tho Coioner went up there
yesterday to make an autopsy, and their suspi.
dons were at once arouicd by tho queer actions
of tho dead man's family.
Dr. Donlin said to-day that Mr. Koehn talked
In such a manner as to load them to belicv o that
tho man had died from cardiac or pulmonary
Tho man was taken sick on Tuesday evening,
and his son Leo, a painter, aged tweuty-ono
years, wan'ed to send for a physician.
"Let mo alone!" said Koohn, and for fear of
angering the man nothing was done. Tho
young man, who Is tho present Mrs. Koehn's
stepson, vveut out and returned at 10 o'clock in
tho ovcniug and found htn lather was dead.
A phisician wan then called, and ho notified
the Coroners' oflico of the case.
The Coroners became suspicions the moment
they saw tho body. 'I lie dead man's legs wcro
