A Collection of Cases Which Prove Thnt
tho Stubbornest Quarrels Are Those'
Between Kelatlve?-reople Who Lire
Toselher ?nd Tot Never Converse.
The other day I heard of a man of
the name of George Gould living at
New Rochelle, N. Y" Writes W. E.
Curtis, in the Chicago Record, tvhose
wife has lived in the sn inc house and
sat at the same table with him with
out speaking to him fer more than
twenty years. They were married in
1863, and have four children who are
grown' and three of them ore married.
About twenty years ago husband and
wife quarreled and the latter, becom
ing angry at one of his remarks, de
clared that she would never speak to
him again until he apologized. He ls
too. stubborn to apologize and she has
become accustomed to silence. They
sleep and eat and sit together like
other husbands and wives. They
drive to town in the same buggy, oc
cupy the same pew at church; she
mends his stockings, sews the buttons
on his shirt and fulfills all the other
wifely duties In the ordinary common*
place-way, except that of conversa
tion, and the husband has become ac
customed to the situation by long ex
perience. He talks to her without re
serve, but when it is necessary for j
her tb communicate with him she
does so through her daughter. Who
lives with them and plays the part
?of a telephone for the old lady.
And yet people say. that a woman
There ls another and a similar case
at Vestal Broome County, N. Y"
where two brothers and two sisters
named Glenn, all unmarried, live to
gether under the same roof, and one
of the brothers, John Glenn, has not
spoken to either of the rest of the f am-. |
ily f~r fourteen years. He is sixty-five
years old, a bachelor, and has always
lived at home with his brothers and
sisters. In 18S6 their father brought
from town two suits of clothes for the
two brothers, and William, the elder,
was allowed the first pick. John be
came indignant at this partiality and
declared that he would never speak
to them again. He has kept his word.
I have been told also of two other
brothers, John and George O'Brien,
who have lived for sixteen years in
the same house on Beaver Island, near
Harbor Springs, Mich., sleeping in the
same bed, eating at the same table and
working in the same cooper shop with
out exchanging a word. When they
?were boys they quarreled over some
trifling Incident and vowed they
would never speak to each other again.
Since then they have kept their vow,
although they are otherwise friendly.
Down near Salem, Mass., are two
old maid sisters of the name of With
erspoon, who quarreled over the seats
they should occupy at the funeral of
their mother. The elder claimed the
privilege of sitting next to the coffin.
The younger assented, but when the
service began took b/r chair around
to the other side so that she sat next
to the coffin also, and, as lt happened,
on the right side. The elder, Indig
nant at being outwitted in such a man
ner, vowed that ?he would never speak
to ber sister again, and has been stub
born enough to hold her tongue.
Living near Newburyport, Mass.,
are two slaters who, in 1879, quarreled
over the best method of preserving
tomatoes. They separated in anger,
both refused to apologize and, al
though they live in the same town,
they have never made up cr spoken
to each other since. Their husbands
and families are friendly and visit
back and forth daily.
Near Rye Beach, N. H., lived a farm
er who had two sons, both married
and the fathers of families. The
three were well known throughout that
section of the country and respected
for their intelligence, integrity and pi
ety. Philbrlck, the younger son, was
famous for his fervency in prayer and
was always called upon to pray at
church meetings and occasions of re
ligious ceremony. He also led the de
votions at family prayers every morn
ing at home. The old man would first
read a chapter in the Bible and then
Invite Philbrlck to pray.
When the angel of death summoned
tbe father he called his sons to his
bedside and told them that he had
made no will because he had confi
dence in their brotherly affection and
unselfishness. He honed they would
always live together in the future as
they had done in the past and keep
their property in common, but if the
time ever came when they thought It
best to divide he was confident that
they could settle the estate bet weer,
them without quar.cling.
Tbe old man died about 5 o'clock io
the morning, and a couple of hours
later, as the household assembled for
prayers, according to their custom,
Jenness, the older son, took up the
Bible and read a chapter, 'as his
father bad formerly done. Then when
he closed tbe book, be cleared bis

especially Philbricfc, were amazed. No

J?nn?ss that tli? father had" expressed
a wish that their a (Ta irs should go on
In the future according to the customs
of the past.
"This is .the first time that he has
had nothing to say about lt," retorted
Jenncss, with some temper. "I will
lead in prayer."
The next morning Jenncss and bis
family held their devotions lu one
room and Phllbrlck and his family
held theira in another, which was thc
beginning of ft quarrel that finally in
volved the whole neighborhood, and,
after numerous attempts at ft settle
ment by arbitration, it was found nec
essary to sell at auction every inch of
ground, every head of live stock, every
article ir. household use and every
piece of property because the brothers
could not agree upon anything. When
the auction came they bid against
each other fiercely over certain arti
cles that both wanted. At the close of
the sale each took his own purchases
and his share of the money pal l to
the auctioneer and went his own way.
That was early in the 70s, and, al
though they have lived iu the same
township and have experienced th;
joys and sorrows that con.e luto the
lives of men, they have never spoken
to or communicated with each other
in any way.
THE TOMBS OF CHINA.
At First Sieht tho Land Looks Like a
The banks of the hills of thc Ynng
tse are sprinkled and clothed with the
LumY\r\" or generation, impjLjyDeratiou.
Chlna looks like one huge graveyard.
Worship of ancestors, observance for'
the fathers that begat them, ls tb*
great fact of Chinese religion-the only
vital point in all the systems of the
Flowery Land. Consequently, to dis
turb the bones of the dead, except for
heavy compensation, is an offense
against society of the gravest kind.
Miles of country, mostly hills, are
given up to the burial of Celestial
dead, and none of this ground is used
for residence or cultivation. When a
graveyard is required, in whole or ia
part, for the purpose of foreign trade,
or for the extension of a foreign set
tlement, a large sum has to be paid to
the ascendants or descendants of the
corpse, as each grave is leveled, in
order that the bones may be transport
ed to another resting place. Profes
sors of light and air make many taels
out of dead men's bones. They tell
the family that the Feng-shui of the
family grave is of ill omen, and at
much cost a new plot of ground Is'pro
cured, and the lowest available ledge
walled up with a semi-circle of brick,
painted white and blue and red. Only
then do the patriarchs slumber in their
graves. The reinterment of the dead
is almost as frequent as the Interment,
where, as at Hankow, the "foreign
devil" is demanding concessions of
land. Any day you may see a family
party squatting around a new made
grave, to contain all that is left of a
lucky ancestor,whose very bones bring
dollars to his clan. Of real reverence
in all this there Is hardly any. A Chi
naman burns his "joss-stick" and pro
longs his mourning from months in*-?
years, in order that his father spirit
may not haunt him, and that the
ghosts of those who have gone before
may not hover about, without food
and raiment, and bring bad luck to
him and his. It is all fear of "bad
joss." Besides, the Chinaman does
as he would be done by, and he ex
pects his son, or the son he has adopt
ed for the purpose (It ls the .whole
purpose of Chinese adoption), to care
for his "manes," as he did in his .turc.
So both banks of the Yang-tse owe to
the Taiplngs and their turbuent pre
decessors many thousands of dead
men's acres in real mortmain tenure.

belittle education after all our furore
about the value of education? By no

"Shall politics become a profesi?n

President Tucker of Dartmouth col

class at Hanover, has aroused much
discussion among educators and men

president urged that politics should be
recognized ns a business, and that
young men should bc instructed in

as to the wisdom of the suggestion
made by President Tucker, but in the
