Some of the Rules Proposed by the
Episcopal Revision Committee.
ELOPEMENTS ARE FROWNED UPON
The Remarriage Rule Against WUieh
Strong Opposition la Expected
Tli« proposed new canons of the Episco
pal church, which, it is reported,
J. Pierpont Morgan, the Vander
bllts and the Belmonts will strong
ly oppose at the general con
vention at San Francisco In October, have
just been made public by the jont com
mittee on revision appointed by the house
of deputies at the general convention of
1898. Attached to the report is the "pro
posed canon on prohibited degrees, '
which revives the old discussion of the
prohibition against marrying a dead wife's
elster. Elopements of young persons are
frowned uj>on in the following words:
No minister shall solemoiEe the marriage
of any parson who Is a minor under the law
of the place of marriage, unless the parent or
guardian of such minor is present and con
senting or the person snail have given writ
ten consent to the marriage, if permanently
resident In a foreign country.
Another precaution against ill-advised
marriages is taken. The canon says:
No minister shall solemnize a marriage ex
cept In the presence of at least two witnesses,
the minister or the witnesses being personally
acquainted with the parties.
Remarriages by divorced persons is
carefully considered, thus: No minister
shall solemnize a marriage between any
two persons unless or until by inquiry he
shall have satisfied himself that neither
person has been or is the husband or the
wife of another person then living, unless
the former marriage was annulled by a
decree of some civil court of competent
jurisdiction over the case.
The discipline of divorced persons Is
laid down thus:
No person divorced from cause arising after
marriage and marrying again during the life
time of the other party to the divorce shall be
admitted to baptism or confirmation or re
ceived to the holy communion except when
penitent and separated from the other party
to the subsequent marriage or when peni
tent and in immediate clanger of death, but
thiß caaon shall not apply to the innocent
party to a divorce for the cause of adultery.
If the revisions submitted are adopted,
the canon law of the Episcopal church will
appear In a much simpler form than is the
case now. for the canons as revised num
ber consecutively from one to fifty-six.

BEST TRADES FOR LONG LIFE
Callings That Are Likely to Make You Live Ova
Your Alloted Time.
No trade in the world is better and
healthier than dye making from coal tar.
There is no manual work that comes near
it, for tar, and the smell of it, is the
finest of all tonics and tissue-builders;
so much so that the average life of a tar
worker comes out at 86 years. The mor
tality is 80 per cent lower, too, than in any
other factory trades.'
Distilling saccharin from the tar is
equally good, and the bony framework and.
circulation of a worker in tar is always
first-class. Malignant diseases are almost
unknown in analine-dye *-ctories, and
even in epidemics the workers suffer lit
tle. And there is nothing like a tarworks
for keeping off influenza. Yet the work
of actually making the tar, which falls to
gas and coke works, is virulently un
healthy, because of the sulphur fumes; but
when the finished tar is passed on to dye
works it brims with health and strength,
and the weakliest men improve when
Eighty-six years is a marvelous average
by the way, for the average of the pou
lation is 49.
Still better, although not a factory trade
like tar-workine, is cowkeeping. Not
herding cows, in the country, for that is
neither more nor less healthy than any
other farming work, but tending cow
stables. Here the average length of life
is 85, and scores of stalled cowkeepers live
over the age of 100. This is because a cow
is the only animal whose presence is thor

Joints that confirmed barrow-wheelers

If a man wheels a barrow properly, the

to strengthen the lungs in a wonderful
way. Whereas, though wielding a pickax

really knocks the life-average down to 45.
