CHARLES E. STUMP, THE REGULAR

great man has fallen. We panse to
note the death of John H. Murphy,
editor-in-chitf of the Afro-American,
Baltimore, and one of the strong ad
vocates of this race of oars.
We are daily reminded that old and
young, high and low. rich and poor,
learned and unlearned, must some
day answer to the call of death. It is
so common, yet -we cannot get used

John Murphy. I have lost a friend, a
brother, and the race shares in this
loss. He lived well his life of 83
years, and they were 83 years of use

said Murphy, "and we want the man
who can do things."
But when the paper came out next
morning with the sermon as delivered.
Murphy's mind was changed, and the
two men became life long friends. I
shared in this friendship, and I am
still a friend to Stewart. He fought
for his race. His whole life was spent
in trying to place us where we be
longed, and if he was your enemy
there was no letting up.
I said enemy, but Murphy was only
an enemy to wrong doing and not to
man. He would die ior what he
thought was right. The Afro-American
will continue to furnish informa
tion. It is now in the hands of his
sons, and they are uniting just like
the works in a dock. Carl G. Mur

FRANKLIN'S COLD-AIR BATH

Benjamin Iranklin, while represent

to a French correspondent that the

found it much more agreeable to my
constitution to bathe In another ele

view I rise early almost every morning

FLOWER-POT AS BRIDEGROOM
Unique Ceremony Which Transforms
Chinese Girl Into a Full-Fladgtd
and Privileged Widow.
China is still a land of strange cus
toms, one of the most curious being
the ceremony of a flower-pot mar
riage. When the man whom a Chinese girl
Is to marry dies shortly before the
date fixed for the wedding, the grief
stricken bride-elect sometimes takes
a vow never to marry. Should she
do so. she goes through the ceremony
of wedding an ordinary flower-pot.
She is now considered a widow, and
upon the parents of her Intended hus
band falls the responsibility of main
taining her. Usually she goes to live
In many cases, especially where the
family Is poor, great sacrifices are nec
essary in order that the danghter-in-law
(as she is now regarded) may be
properly cared for. But the parents
have no option in the matter. And.
actually, they bare no desire to shirk
their responsibilities, for the faithful
ness of the "widow" brings great
honor to the bridegroom's family. It
being considered quite a disgrace
should the bride-elect not wish to
go through the ceremony of marrying

Krook Is the name of a rather prom

Dickens' novel, "Bleak House." which
has much to do with the then dilatory
procedure of the Court of Chancery.
The system Dickens describes ceased
to exist many years.
Krook is the proprietor of a rag and
bone warehouse, where everything
seems to be bought and nothing sold.
He is a grasping drunkard, who even

that be takes fire and Is consumed.
In a note to this chapter of "Bleak
House" Dickens dtes a case of spon
taneous combustion that took place
In Paris. France, and which, he said.
was well verified by medical authority.
It was probably from that case that
Dickens obtained the Idea which be
made use of In describing Erooks wonderful-death.
