five years. Tho pains with which he
hoards his mouoy, has grown to bo a
perfect mania, lie owns every dollar
of bonds issued in payment of tho licau

cash on deposit with the Mt. Carbon
company and money loaned to other
parties, in all amounting to perhaps
820,000. Ah an items of economvand

thread. The eggs provo to bo boiled.
They hnd been accumulated iu the same
manner as the crackers, by denying
himself what was intended as part of
his noon meal. I Muriilivsborn fndc-
C it E.MAT Ion would never have rath-
fled Mrs. M. M. Schofield, milliner, of
oi I roy, iSew iork. Knowing that
some day, soon or late, death would
claim her, nnd haviut: u horror of
dowdy funerals as for any sort of ill
taste, some years since she prepared
carefully it programme for her funeial,
purchasing at the s:imo time a miautitv
of black velvet, which was to play an
important part in the last grand dis
play. Some days noo Mrs. ti., bavin-'
attained the lipc ago of tifty-two, was
called to a brighter and belter world,
where fashions never change and feath
ers are forever the rnue. The casket
wherein the remains were placedj was
made of yellow pine, lined with zinc
nnd white satin, and covered with black
silk velvet, with elegant nnd elaborate
trimmings. The whole top of the
casket was off, displaying the full length
ligitro of the corpo, which, having
been an animated fashion plate, was re
duced to tho condition of a dummy fur
drapery. She was attired in u full
dress of lich black i-ilk velvet, trimmed
willulace. . delicately gloved hand
held a rioh lace handkerchief, the other
was bared, the better to display a dia
mond ring. Her directions were car
ried out to the letter, and, ns a fashion
able 'corpso she must have attracted
much more attention than ever she did
as a fashionable bonnet-maker.
The Mississippi legislature has en
acted a statute that will be a .-erious
obstacle to the liquor traffic if it is
enforced. It gives the people of each
township or city the privilege of decid
ing whether or not they will license
the sale of liquor, but dillcrs materially
from other "local option laws," in that
a petition requires the signature of n
majority of the men over twenty-one
years of age, and of women over
eighteen years of ago, in any locality,
before the license can isMic. This is a
commendable recognition oi the rights
of women, who are often the worst i-uf-ferers
troin intemperance, even 011 the
part of others.
