A GHASTLY CEREMONY.
The Formal Cremation of the Body ol
Baron De. Palm--A llorrible but
Interesting Account.
Correspondence Philadelphia Times.
WASHINGTON, PA., December 6.
There were two solitary watchers on
Gallows Hill last night. One was.
Mr. James S. Wolf, the other was a
reporter. Long before dark the
shrunken body of Baron Do Palm
was wrapped in its pale winding
oheet and laid out, stark and cold,
in the long iron cradle. The
catafalque had been drawn to the
centre of the reception room ; a
briht fire had been started in the
litt o stove.,t the side of the room,
and the back window had boon rais
ed for reasons best known to any
body who wont into the room with
out holding his nose. In the furn
ace room Mr. Wolf sat on the bot
tom of an inverted bucket, smoking
his pipe, occsionally opening the
furnace door and throwing a red
glisre over the little room and its
occupnts. It was a spectral plitce.
The door between the two o ,ms
stood open, and the Baron lay in
plain sight, comfortablo in his cool.
quarters even outside the building.
Things were a little ghostly.
Gallows Hill is qnito a chorial
neighborhood, and with a real
j. baronial mummy within tan feet on
one side and the old gallows posts
leaning almost against the building
on the other, and Cremater Wolf
to hold a little kerosene hunp for
the reporter to write by, and a
'chair from ander the catafalque for
a table, the cheerinees is doubly
cheered.
T-. REPORTER GETrING HOTTER AND
HOTTER.
'The retort that was red hot in the
afternoon was getting half-way be
tween red and white by midnight.
Every hour the bright furnace door t
was opezed and a fresh supply of
coke was put in. The furnace was
bot, terribly hot, two or three feet
-off the ground, but near the top it
was almost as cool as the snow with- t
out. The intense heat had burned
away the plaster in crevices between
some of the bricks and the biight t
'light shone through. The fireman
is a c'apital ventrilo(gnist,. and he
used his voice occasionally with f
istartling effect, making the Baron
say, now and then, "please stir up
the fire a little." or, "it's getting cold
here,'.' or "won't yon give me a glas
,of water ?" greatly to the fright of
a country lad who stepped in as he
was passing by.
TOILET OF THE BOGES.
At 7 o'clock tis morn iug., when I
the red light in t;e east began to
throw faint shadowd of the gallows
posts against the little building,
the undertaker climbed from the
silent village to the summit of Ga -
lows Hill to see that all was right
The furnace was then white with
'heat. The fuiace roon was suffo
eating and the retort was red hot
and white hot in spots. At a quar
ter before 8 o'clo k Col. Oleott a
rived, carrying his Hindoo crema
toin vase in one hand and a half
gallon bottle of alum water in the
'other. He took a brief look at the
body and then, taking a package
from his pocket, raised the winding
sheet and sprinkled frankincense,
myrrh, cassia and other spices over
the Baron's breast. After the sheet.
was replaced the alum was poured
over it, wetting it from head to
ifoot. This wais to pr-event it from
,making a blage when first put into
- the retort. Then -the evergreens
and flowere were strewn over the
body and it was ready for the cere
anony. By this time it was, after
8 o'clock, and the reception room was
nearl~y full, the physicians 'and the
newspaper maen naaking a party ,of
about fifty, w o were waiting in
%patiently for the ceremony to begin.
-Outtside about ,a hundred of the
townspeople had gathered.
/At half-pasti eight o'clock the
fireman said that the furnace was
ready, and Col. Olcott told 'lim to
unfiaten Ithe door of the retort.
T'he farnace r-oom was clear-ed, the
door was taken down, a fres h lig
~was put'on the other dopi' that was.
to take its place, and the prepara
tions were complete. Clol. Olcott
and Mr. Newton, the two execaxtor-s,
took their places at the head of the
body, one oelh side, and Dr.
LeMorie aid ipr. Aedyle 'at the
foot."It goes lii feet %rst," said

door between the two rooms and
reaching the front of the furnace,
rested their end of the cradle on the
front of the retort. The heat was
so intense that even before the head
was inside of the oven the smoko
began to rise, and the bearers at the
foot quickly shoved the cradle and
body into the retort. A thick,,
light colored, almost odorless smoke
poured out through the door. Still
not a word was said. Instantly the
fresh door was raised and adiusted
the cremation was begun. The
open door had somewhat cooled the
retort, and when the fire in the
furnace was not as hot as it might
have been, somebody suggested that.
the retort was not hot enough.
"Hot enough ?" rel)licd the firemiau;
"why, it's a second edition of
hell.
TnE CREMATION nEOUN.
It was just half past eight o'clock,
, ittburg time, when the body went

ihutting off the viewi again. At alt
juarter before nine the winding|
iect waa still unburncdl, though
Ino iron cradle was red-hot. The
etort was g tting to a bright heat
Lza:ln, and its interior could be seen
lainly, though the solcs of the
Baron's feet were so near the loop- t
wie that only a little of his body
juld be soon. At this time the
iorgrens and palm lea:ves were
iall intact and in shapo, though
!ompletely turned to ashes, :or

rowd outside were allowed to con e

he retort, and then go out again.
Lt a quarter before 10 o'clock the

t'he inside of the retort was at

A Steel Pen Manufactory, and tMs Vari
ous Processes kmnployed.
Everybody who has used Gillott'i
803's will be interested in the follow
ing description of a visit to tie
manufactory in BirmingIam, whici
is taken from the .ngish Me
Mhanic :
The workors are almost all women,
who amount altogether to about foml
liundrod. The men and boys form
th:e minority, and work in the pri
nary department--in other words,
heiy do tho rough work.
The first departuient, in which only
non and boys work, prepares thc
ihcots of stool required. These are
nado to certain lengths, measuring
rozn two to four inchos in width, ac
,ording to the various sorts of pens
nanufactuired. When the different
iheets are prepared they are he, ided
jo tie stamping departinent, where
be fi-st and subsequont procosses of
>en making are gone thiouigh. There
Lre altogether twenty-foir processes;
vory single pen has to go through
hoem all before it is completed and
it for use. Each workor has a sop
6rate tab'e, with the stamping ma
hine on it, and a stool to herself.
,early all the processes are done by
tamping. When stamped out the
oon, any kind whatevor, is at at irst
erfectly fiat. The sheet used is
olled and placed on the groind on
no side of the tablo ; the worker
ks hold of the unrolled end and
iasses it at regular intervals benezth
he stamper on the block, and by
he help of a contrivance worked by
ho foot, or by a motion of the han
le, the stamuper deocends with a
harp rap and ris'is up again imme
liately. With great rapidity the
Iens are removed from the block,
nd the sheet pushed on. The pro
ess is similar to that of the stamp
ag of seals on paper, with the ex
option that in the case of pen-making
he stool shoot is placed on the matrix.
The subsequent processes, such as
oaundmng the pens, putting on the
me and number, splitting the
ibs, a-e all exceuto I by E t unping ma
hImes nearly inthe same manner ao
Ie first process. In every case only
no single pen is done at a time.
the last process is the temnpering,

hrough all the various stages uip to

re put into a large p:n placed with
11 a heating IIpratus--a large cop
>or cylinder-but not directly over
he fire ; ad by an ingenious pro
ess they are kopt oonstnntij
tirring and shifuing about, so that
ii equal degree of neat is imparted
o each single one. This process

What the Leading Papers Say.
From the New York Post, Iep.
If the Democrats insist upon in.
quiring into the proceedings of the
Louisiana Returning Board, they
cannot prevent the Iopublicais
fromn inquiring into the proceedings
of the Oregon Governor. On the
other hand, if the Republicans insist
that the authentic action of the
State is conclusive in Louiriana,
they must admit that it is conclu
sive in Oregon. Upon the State
theory, any alleged wrong in the
appointment of Electors must be
righted in the State. In respect to
the Oregon case the facts and the ,
law are yet to be officially ascer
tained. If a wrong has been done
in the appointment of Electors
there ought to be sonie way of I
righting it in the State, but we are ]
not prepared to say that there is j
any. In South Carolina the Demo
crats have suggested a proceolent
by calling upon the Supreme Court
of the Stato for relief. But if there
is no remedy for such a wrong with
the appointment of Electors is a
State matter?
