Fnn.rAl Coremoolr. ()l..rvoI br tlie
In the case of almost all .Town, tho
dissolution of alllaneo between tho
celestial elements and tho material
body Is denoted by a lighted taper (as
the symbol of immortality), a hyglonle
vessel of water, for ceremonial purification,
and a napkin or towel, "Tahara,"
Washing or purification, shortly precedes
the funeral, and is usually performed
as a privilege by volunteers.
Shroud is of plain llnon or cotton, cofiln
without ornament, and burial without
ostensatiou, becauia death levels all
distinctions. Therefore poor and rloh
aro entitled to the samo ruspeot, and
tho embarrassment so often occasioned
by costly funerals Is avoided Tho last
look upon the remains Is customarily
accompanied by a slight rent In tho
breast of tho mourner's garment, to express
grief. When the coflln Is deposited
in the grave, the bystanders ejaculate,
"May he (or she) repjso in peace."

period, unless unavoldublo necessity,

Mloysn assembles morning and
evening, and prayer is olTored for the
roposo of tho doccascd. Friends pay
visits of eondolou co. and deeds of
licence afford soma relief to anguish.

a general mourning of thirty days of
twelvo months for a parent iu which
Is total abstlnenco from festivity or

A LoBson on tho Moaning of
My father wos u physician of good
practice In a wealthy quarter of
and we boys, four in number,
wore eciiourngcd by him to lire out ot
doors as much as possible. Wo played
tho national game, rowed, belonged to
a private gymnasium,
and were halo and hearty accordingly;
but especially did wo prlzo the Spring
vacation which was always spent at
our grandfather's farm, a beautiful
spot In the Juunlta valley, shut In by
hills, and warmed by the sunshine,
which always seemed to us to shino
especially bright on our nnnual visit,
as if to mako up for tho cloudy and
stormy weather of Mnrch.
At tho tiino of which I speak, the
anticipations beforo starting were
especially Joyous. Harry, Carl and
Francis, ngod I'cspectlvoly eleven, fourteen
and sixteen, had after earnest
efforts in their school work been
promoted each to tho class above his
former rank, and wcra in conscqucnco
proud and happy, though tired. I,
Itoyal by name, a Junior in a well-known
New England college, working
steadily In the course, was not unwilling
to spend a week or two in
quiet, searching the well-stored
library which had the best that three
generations of book lovers could buy
on Its' shelves, and beforo whoso
cheery open lire wo gathered at evening
for stories and counsel from older
and wiser minds.
Wo packed pur bays, took our rods
for trout fishing was often good, eveu
in early April, In n well-stocked brook
that ran ulong willow-fringed banks In
tho south pasture and boarded tho
train. At tho station the hired man
mot us with a pair of Morgan horses
than which I do not remember to havo
seen better from Mint duy to this, nnd
wo were soon at the hall door, shaking
hands with grandmother and grandfather,
and, to our pleasant surprise,
with Aunt Cell a, who, unexpectedly to
us, was at home. Sho was a widow,
having lost her husband in the Mexican
war, and was a teacher of modern
languages In a girls' private school la
southern Now York. iSha was ono of
thoko rare natures that the heart Instinctively
trusts, and no oue ot the
many grandchildren hesitated about
telling Aunt Ccelia his or her troubles,
always confident thnt something would
bo dono toward making the rough
place smooth or gaining tho object
Carl und Francis were Just at tho
age when feats of daring wore a delight
to them. Harry was of n naturally
timid nature, modest, and lacking
sometimes In confidence, nnd so was
often urged on by the other two, when
ho shrank from attempting anything,
by Buch expressions ns "Don't bo a
coward, Harry!" "A girl could do
that!" which, by such a sensitive spirit,
were felt moro than blows ot tho lash
would be. When I was- by. tho boys
would not Indulgu In these trials of
strength or endurance, but In ray absence
I know they huit his tender feelings
by their taunts, though really
they did not Intend to. A boy looks
for what ho calls courage lu his playmate,
and, If ho does wot seo what apparently
corresponds to his own, he
thinks him a coward, while tho braver
of tho two may really bo tho moro diffident
and shrluktug one.
It was Saturday afternoon; wo were
to deavo Monday morning, and 1 had
gone to tho post olllco to mall a letter
to our father, telling him to expect us
Monday noon. Itohlnd tho barn was a
largo oak tree from whose trunk n

with (something of a Jar, to bo sure, but
safely, ou tho roof, whero ho sat with

follow him. Carl, though unwilling to
try It, was still more unwilling to acknowledge
any superiority of his older
brother In that line, so he, too climbed
up, crept out, and, when he had found

iQrnndmother nnd grandfather sat in
their armchairs on cacli side of the
fbroad hearth. I occupied an antique
chair I had found In the attic, and
which I was to carry homo for my own
(room. Carl ntul Francis sat on old-fashioned
crickets, whllo Aunt Cclla
had her tow willow rocker In front
of tho Are, and Harry leaned agnlnst
'her, with hor arm around his neck.
Wo remained silent for somo moments,
when grandfather quietly said:
"Colla, hadn't you bettor tell tho boys
Ltho story of tho walnut rod?" Wo
looked up In swift surprise. The walnut
rod hpoheo of was one that had
trested, ever since we could remember,
aoross a pair of broad antlers over the
fireplace, with an old sword sou two
muskots that had seen service nt
Hunker Hill and Yorktown. Often had
wc, in boyish curiosity, asked what It
was, and why it was kept there, tied
by a plcco of faded ribbon to ono of tho
antlers, but had always been put oil
with "by and by," and "when you aro
older." Now, when wo saw a chance
to know about it, wo chorused: "Old
yes, Aunt Cclla, do tell, please," and
she, quietly saying: "I supposo thoy
can learn Its Icskoh now," began:
"1 was, ss you know, tho only girl of
the family, and also tho youngest
child, your father being two years
older. There wcro few neighbors
when wo first came hore to live; Indeed,
our nearest was fully a quarter
of a mllo away, so wo saw few besides
our own family. Your uncles, John.
William and Elijah, woro several yi"ars
older, and so wcro busy holplng father
In clearing the Innd and in Its care,
Accordingly Henry and I wcro muoh
together. Wo studied tho samo book
at our mother's knee, played with tho
samo toys nnd were together so much
that tho older boys sometimes called
us 'mother's two girls.' Hut your
though tender and gentlo In appearance,
had a brave heart under his
llttlo Jacket, and I knew better than
thoy that he was no coward. Thoy
called htm so sometimes, thinking, because
ho seemed fearful about soma
things thoy counted trifles, that
ho really had no courage. I'm afraid
boys havo forgotten nowadays that
moro daring Is no test of true courage."
Here, Francis nnd Carl felt their faces
grow hot, but Aunt Cclla Bald no moro
and. went on:
"It was ono day in April, very lltco
today, that we nil went upon tho sidj
hill to pick May flowers. Henry wus
nearly twelve years old, his birthday,
as you know, Is next month, and I wus
ten. It had always been a habit, when
people went out In tho spring for flowers,
to cut a stout stick, to bo used
partly as a walking stick, and partly
as n protection against snakes, which
were often seen, but which usually escaped
beforo thoy could be reached.
Old people told of rattlesnakes that
used to be seen, but thoy wcro very
scarce, even then, and nono ot us had
over seen one.
"Wo all had sticks cut from a bunch
of hickory saplings that grew beside
the path, and your uncle KHJah said,
as wo wcro going nlong: 'I wonder
what Hen would do If ho heard a rattlesnake;
turn palo and faint away, I
guess,' at which tho others laughed
loudly, but Henry said nothing, though
I saw Ills lips quiver at tho taunt.
"We found the flowers, thick and
beautiful, just as you have this week.
Wo picked all we wished, ate the lunch
which mother had put up for us, and
were sitting on a largo, flat stone, talking
ot starting for home. I saw a bit
ot pretty moss under somo twigs at tho
edge of tho stone, and stepped down to
get it, when suddenly n peculiar
that wo never had heard
struck our cars. All tho boys
started up, looking about eagerly. Tho
bushes at my side parted slightly, and
tho lla.toncd head of a largo rattlesnake
protruded, and again camo that
dreadful sound, Then tho loys jumped
from tho rock, each in a different direction,
nud'sereamed. rather than cried:
'Jump, Cclla, it's a rattlesnake.'
"I could not move. I must hare boen
paralyzed by fear, for, though 1 was.
but a child, I could not misunderstand
my danger. Of course, what I am telling
happened In a few seconds, but I
remember hearing the swish that n
stick makes when it cuts through tho
air,- aud tho horrible head, with Us

from the writhing body, and fell at my

my side, nnd with his stick, too ono
you sco on the antlers yonder, had
saved me from dreadful deatlu There
ho stood, palo and trembling to bo sure,
but with such a light In his hi no eyes,
that nono ot ids older brothers dared
over call him coward, or girl, again.
Wo walked quietly home, bringing tha
body wiUi its horrible horny scales, to
show to father and mother. I shall
never forgot how they cls.'.ped us in
their arms as they listened to the story,
and how I wondered, as n child will, if
everybody, when they were grown up,
cried when they woro very glad.
"Nothlug was ever said to tho older
boys. They had learned what truo
