The body of Marie Hart Reynolds, the
almshouse "suicide, was laid to rest yes
teiday in Rock Creek Cemetery. There
was no ostentation, in the ceremonies and
no mourners stood beside the grave to
commingle theli tears with the earth as
it was cast upon the coffin. At 12, o'clock
a tluseduwlertaker's wagon rattled intothe
burying ground ana up to a newly made
grave which, bud been awaiting its occu
pant three hourb berore.
With c-ant ceremony the driver leaped
from the seat and diew forth the polished
oak coffin. In a few moments the casket
had been consigned to the earth.
'lhe funeial seiAices -eie to na-ve taken
place at 9 o'clock. The Women' Chns
liau Hume, wl.ete she had l een an inmate,
was in chaige of all funeral arrangements,
and in addition to ofleilug a bur.al lot In
Rock Cicek. Cemetery, defraed ail tne
expenses of inteuneut- It had been the in
tention of the home to hold funeial ser
vices bcfoic tlie body was ii.moed, but
at an early hour this morning Undertaker
Nichols ieceied word that nothing would
be done in thatdirecUon, and that it would
be best l piotced with the burial as soon
In the. meanwhile, a numoer ot the
parishioners of St. John's Episcopal Church,
which the woman had formerly attended,
were awaking the performance of the rites
from their place. The Washington Post
erroneously stated that the services would
be held there at 9:30, but when the hour
had passed and neither minister nor coffin
appeared, inquiries were made as to where
the body lay, and a number of ladiescaiue
at once to Undertaker Nichols' Just at the
time when the wagon wab about to start
for the cemetery.
When they learned that no services were
to be held they -wen unwilling that the
burial tnould take place before tho rites of
the Christian Church had been rerformed,
and word was sent to a number of minis
ters asking them to officiate. Unfortu
nately, noneof the divines sent Tor iv- n
hemp, so, as a last resort, Mr. Bailey, of
the Central Union Mission, was sentror.and
in a short while arrived.
During the earlyp.'irtot the morning there
had been a number of people in the cham
ber with the body, but when Mr. Bailey
arrived but three persons were present.
A chnpterfrom theBible wasreaclover the
coffin, and at the close of the reading a
prayer was said.
But v.hlle the body Hep peacefully be
neath itsnewlymads mound, thestoryofthe
woman's life is steadily developing. But
little ot the truth has been told.
Marie Hart, Marie Schoonmaker, or
Marie Rcynolda,asshc was variously known,
was a native of Cuba, the child ot a
Spanirti father and a French mother. But
little of her life wap spent in Uie land ot
her nativity, as her parents moved to
this city soon after her birth. Bere she
was accorded all the advantages of a good
education, and while still in her teens, at
tracted the attention ot Edwin M. Bart,
formerly a paymaster in the United States
Navy, but who had retired from the ser ice
Bart did not live happily with his young
wife, and in a few years separated
from her. Echooamaker, a carriage maker,
in the meanwhile, had galaed her affec
tion, and after living together for a
while they became man and wife. Ber
husband did not live long, and left hits
widow with one child, a girl, named Julia.
The mother, not wishing to encumber her
self with the rearing ot her daughter,
placedher in care of thaslstersatSt. John's
Episcopal School, where sh -was reared,
knowing nothing ot her mother. Eight
years ago Mrs. Hart-Schoonmaker became
known ns Mrs. Reynolds.
Rcyno'ds was a young man, many years
her Junior. Not until two years ago did
the woman evince much solicitude as to
her daughter's welfare. Then she suddenly
apppared at the orphanage and requested
Sister Sarah, who had charge of the child,
to allow her to withdraw Julia from tho
care of the institution, claiming that she
was married to Reynolds and f uHy able to
care for her daughter.
Julia wa then almost sixteen years old
and much liked at the home. The sister
evinced perfect willingness to relinquish
care of the girl if Mrs. Reynolds would
show her the certificate of her marriage
to Reynolds. This she claimed to be able
to do,and returned in a few days display
ing a certificate dated the previous day.
This Indicated that at the time she ap
plied for possession of Julia Reynolds was
not her husband. Becoming suspicious
Sister Sarah refused to give up the girl.
Mr. and Mrs. Reynolds lived together un
til last Christmas. The Woman had mean
while become a confirmed morphine and
laudanum fiend and was constantly under
thP influence ot cither of these drugs or
whisky. Reynolds himself Is a drinking
man and thelrllfe was by no means happy.
Quarrel followed quarrel and a separation
ensued. The man heard nothing of his
wife, except that from time to time she
wrote to him begging for money.
A Times reporter found him at work
at the carriage shop, corner of Tliird and
B streets northeast, where he is employed
from time to time. He was by no means
concerned as to his late wife's fate, and
did not even know what funeral arrange
ments had been made, or in "what ceme
tery she was interred. When told that
she had en given decent burial, he
expressed himself as pleased, but at no
time displaced much emotion.
ThcfactsprintedabDve are partly gleaned
from his story and from information ob
tained from official reports.

Prepare to Celebrute the Victory.
In the contest between the citizens of
Brlghtwcod and Brlghtwood Park over the
postorfice site the) people of Brlghtwood
Park have won.
The application of Fostmaster Van Horn
to change the site or the postofrice from
Brlghtwood to Brlghtwood Park was grant
ed yestetday by the Postoffice Department.
The transfer ot the office will be formally
iiit.de this eveningT and the cltUeusor thf

ing in celebration of the event, at whloh
firo.iorko will be 'shot off , an American
ensign unfuiled, and the .Mount Pleasunfc
Drum Corps will anake thunder on sheep
skin. Fourth A3blBtant Postmaster General Bris
tow said yesterday to a reporter Tor Tlie
"There has been a great fight about the
matter and both sides have certainly oeen
rully icprescnted. Hundreds and almost
thousands of people, I should say, have
argued the claims of the old and the new
locations to tne. I was obliged to deelde the
way I did after all the testimony, as I did

amount Involved. It 1p the usual custom
in the small postofficcs to allow the post
nius'crs to have the office at hlb place of
business. We ouldn'tget postmasters It
"the argument against Mr. Van Horn's
location was that it would lnccn"venience
a great many people at Brlghtwood to go
to Brlghtwood Park. But it is no further
from Biightwood to Brlghtwood Park
than it is f iom Brlghtwood Park to Bright
wood. JuHt as many of the Park people
are now inconvenienced in going to Brfpht
wood as will be the other way round, and,
at any rate, the distance is shore, only
A reporter for The Times saw a number
of people lapt night ac Brlghtwood and at
Dr. Henry Darling, of Brlghtwood. said:
"Tlie change of site is an infernal outrage.
The Postoffice Department has lied to us
throughout this matter. The officials de
clared that they would send outacomnetent
and honest Inspector to look the situation
over and make himself acquainted with
the facts. No such step wns taken. It is
a decision which is in direct opposition
to four-fifths of the patrons, or the office.
Fourth Assistant Postmnoter General Bris
tow is a political bigot. He got it into
his head that the people who wanted the
ofilec retained at Brlghtwood were Demo
crats, and Uiat those who wanted it
changed to Bricbtwood Park were Re
publicans. The oidy Democrat who figured
in tho matter on thesldeof Brightwoodwas
myself. A number of the agitators on. tb
side of Brightwood Parkvere Republicans.
Eery negro patron of tht office signed a
petition for the retention of) the postoffice
at Brightwood." v
Dr. J. A. Luvender.xif Brightwood, said:
"I shall accept the result as final. Too
much trouble has been raised over the mat
ter, and much more than I thought would
be when the fight commeneed. We are
not going to weaken our position by kick
ing against the decision of the Postoffice
Department. 1 am not going to enter Into
any scheme to boycott the present post
master." Theodore Thomas said: "What I have to
say about this matter! would rather say
wlth a 'blank.' If I gave way to my real
feelings 1 might be induced to swear."
Henry Shaw said:-"I think the Post
office Department haumade a mistake in
this change of Bite if it Is the desire of
the postal authoritlcsrthat the location of
the office shall be of the greatest good
to the greatest .number."
A. G. Osltorn, who was postmaster at
Brightwood for thirty jcurs, and who "nan
defeated by Mr. Van Horn, said: "It would
not be proper for me to have much to san
ation t this. I think the present location
of the olf Ice is the best which can be had,
and I think the department has made a
mistake in authorizing a change."
Mr. John G. Keene, of Brightwood, said:
"Mr. Van Horn is a nice fellow and will
make a good postmaster. The change ot
site will be an inconvenience to the old
patrons of the office."
A- N. Harrison, of Brightwood, said:
"The change of site le an outrage. The
people of Brighfnood and the patrons of
the Brightwood postfif ficehave been treated
badly by the Postoffice Department- It
Is an otitiagf from beginning to end."
Down at Brightwood Park the reporter
for The Tlmesf'jund the people In a happy
humor over their victory. Postmaster Van
Horn said: "I am taking it all out in
thinking and am not saylug much."
"W. F. Wallsmith said: "It is a good
thing. It meets the wants of the people,
and we are the people."
Theodore F. Brown said: "It was a
good, square fight, and tho result is as
it should have been. Victory went to the
right side this time. A great many tears
arc being shed, but no blood."
W. R Reynolds said: "We are going to
hoist Old Glory over the Brightwood Park
postoffice, and we are all going to take
off our hats and shout "Victory!"
J. W. Keene, of Brightwood Park, said
he was ''too full of Joy over the result for
utterance. You must excuse me from being
interviewed. I am chock full."
L. M. Simpson, ot Brlghtwood Park, con
sidered It "a great triumph, and it could
not be greater."
W. McK. Clayton said: "I am elated.
It is the old, old story of the hare and the
tortoise. People will now he able to get
their mall without climbing over soap
b6xes and fish barrels. Postmaster Van
Horn has fixed up a modern postoffice."

Mr. Joseph H. Richards stated that an
other reason why the land was valueless to
the property owners was because it is
laid off In rlf ty-flve-foot lots, according to
the old style, while the new building rules
required 'hem to build houses with sixteen
foot front, in order to do which they would
have to spoil their ground.
"But even if you could build would you
be able to rent the houses with the garbage
crematory there?" asked Mr. Herrell
"No, sir," was the response. Several
others spoke iu the same strain after
which Commissioner Wight informed thpin
that their objections seemed to be well
founded nnd that the board would look
into the matter carefully. In the mean
time provision will be made to btop the
work, at least for the present.
