Sir Henry Thompwin, Professor of
Clinical Surgery in University College,
London, has contributed a paper to
the Contemporary Review in regnrd
to the distosal of the dead in great
cities, in which he advocates the
burning of the bodies and saving their
a-hw in urns, if desired, as less revolt
ing than consigning them to the grave
to rot and lc devoured by the worms.
His premises are: the horrible character
of the changes in the dead Iwdy after
burial, the decomposition of gnsc,and
contamination of thcatmospherealiove
and water beneath; the impossibility
of intramural interment w ithout ensu
ing sickness, and the fact that most
extramural cemeteries will in the
course of time come in contact with
the grooving population. On the
other hand, he insists that incrematim
is perfect, clean, not unhealthy, con
sonant to reason and law, and prefer
able to slow decomposition in the
ground. A body weighing one hun
dred and Seventy pound. can lc re
duced to ashes in less than an hour,

pounds, can lie removed with ease and

Barring this vice, she was everything I

In due course of time he sailed for

It is tli.-jiuted whether the late cold
KaCicr IrB-iril. j
Muggins, of Phenix, celebrated hi
"iron wedding one day last week,
and he invited alsout onehuudred and
twenty guests to the wedding. Of
course each person felt compelled to
bring a gift of some kind, and each
one did. When Mr. and Mrs. Smith
came, they handed Muggins a pair of
flat-irons. When Mr. and Mrs. Jones
arrived, they also had a pair of flat-!
irons. A 11 hand laughed at the'eoui- j
cidence. And there was even greater ;
merriment when the Browns arrived ;
with two pairs of flat-irons. But
when Mr. and Mrs. Robinson came in
with another pair of flat-irons, the
laughter liecame crfectly convulsive
"fi"',v" " wmuinii. ,
There was, how ever, something less ,
Illlilictlig ninmi it. n in 11 ihk: Xlt(fillr-
sons arrived with four flat-irons
wrapped in a brown pajier. And j
Muggins' face actually l(H)kel grave j
when the three Johnson girls were !
ushered into the room carrying a flat-1
iron apiece. Each one of the sue- j
cecding sixty guests brought ilat-irons, '
and there was no break in the contin- j
uity until old Mr. Clurry arrived from j
Port liyrou with a cast-iron cow bell. !
Muggiiw has uo earthly use for a cow
bell, and, any other time, he would '
have treated such a present with seom

Mr. Curry, and he wa about to cm-
him, when the Walsinirhams ;
came in with the new kind of double- j
ixuntcct Hat-irons, with wootlen han-

brought the same articles, excepting '
Mr. llugbv, and he h:ul with him a

Muggins got madder and . madder :
every minute, and by the time the
company bail all arrived he was nearly j
insane with rage, and he went up to ,
bed, leaving his wife to entertain th,o
guests. In the morning they counted
"P the spoils, and found they had two
hundred and thirteen Hat-irons, one
rtand and a cow bell. The fact is, '
the hardware st-.re in the place had ;
an overstock of flat-irons, and .old.
them at an absurdly low figure, and
j Muggins' guets unanimous! v went for
j the cheajvest thing they could find, as
people always do on such occasions.

: nod lately," did not change her name. !
shc says that she and her husband
; agreed 'before they were married that i
'they should hold 0:1 t their own
mimes. In fact, she would n't have
; married without such an agreement,
; I arked her if Mr. Willis (her bus-

to Brown. She said, "Oh.no. lie
would lie simple if he did, Willis being ;
;a much prettier name; liesides, had
his name iceii Iligginlx.itom.hewould i
have preferred to retain it, considering i
; it was his own, and tiie one lis had;
always been known by." I asked her :
if no'one ever called her Willis. She i
iid, :(h, yes, sometimes they did;;
but she didn't wage any sjH-cial "war on ;
j that, any more than if "they had called '
her some pet name that never ln-longed

Willis and the Rev. Olympia Brown"; '

and she preaches to her congregation ,
