BitinocTON, ft. J., Aug :t The bod
ies of It victims of the railroad colli
sion at Atlantic City were burled from
this city Sunday. Oue was buried Sat
urday; Monday there will be four
more burials and Tuesday nine. Thus,
If no more succumb to their injuries,
there will liae been 28 deaths from
among this city's population.
Thoso burled Sunday were H. Prazier
Bell and his wife; Chailes Sooyvsr.,
and son, Charles; Joshua Hi list, deputy
county clerk, I'ichurd W. Trcnchard
and Ills wife; Joseph Peters and his
sou, Morris, and James Batcman and
Thoic were so many funcials that
tliu facilities for burial were over
taxed. Hearses did treble duty and
cartlago diivcrs cmicd as many as
four .separate groups of mourners to
the eemetciics. (Sieat ciowds, largely
made up of tearful women, gathered in

Theic expressions of sorrow for tho
dead, words of sympathy for the suf
fering, and ready otlei.s of succor to
the bet eaved. Fortunately, though,
there arc very few, if any, cases of teal
need, so far as know n. ' The ictims of
the hapless disaster were in almost all
eases so situated us to leave no desti
tution behind, although thete may be
one or two cases calling for ussist
a it re.
In the churches the deepest sorrow,!
for iu almost every ease tho dead was a j
member of some one of the churches of
the city. The preachers, with choked
voices, drew lessons fiom the fearful
wieck, but while one looked upon it as
a visitation of Piovidcnce, called
forth by the wickedness of tlious- (
ands who were drifting rap
idly to perdition. another .said
nothing m re or less than a calam
ity due to gioss c.uclcbsness on some
body's pat t. Another took the middle
giound and .spoke of the crash as an ,
appalling disaster which carriies its
own lessons of fortitude ami Christian i
forbearance, and developed the loe
and sympathy for this community from
the wide world
One of the saddest cases was that of
Sooy. The mangled body of the father
was left in the hearse, while that of
the son was eariied into tliu house
while the services wcie being hold.
Within the dwelling there wcie moans
and laments from the stricken
widow and mother and deep wailings
from her seven fatherless children.
People wept for sympathy for this
sorely alllicted woman, whose deep
distiess carried sonow to every heart.
Amid it all there aiose the soft cooing
of an infant, a three-weeks' old child,
tho youngest of the father's llock. As
the white casket containing her boy's
remains was carried out to the second
hearse, the poor woman, leaning on an
elder son, moaned: "Oh, why should it

A WONDERFUL SEAWEED.
Hue u Bteui bomotltuos Three Hundred
One of the most extraordinary sea
Meeds among the Lamincriacete is the
Xeieocjstls, the stem of which occasion
ally attains a length of 300 feet, though
extremely slender, even at the top,
where it is surmounted by a huge float
ing bladder sK feet or seven feet in
length, that nfi'ords a favorite resting
place to the sen otter. This plant is
found on the northeast coast of
America and the opposite shores of
Asia. The filiform stem, which is
about a& thick as pack-thread, sudden
ly swells above, when two feet or three
feet long, into a globose bladder, from
the top of which springs a tuft of ger
minate leaves mostly rising on five
petioles. As the plant grows older the
stem increases enormously in length,
but only slightly in thickness. The
globose bladder swells into a turnip
shaped or retort-like cyclinder, six feet
long and four feet six Indies or moi-e in
diameter in the widest part, the lower
extremity gradually passing into the
stem. The leaves, which at first were I
marked with n few faint nerves, splitin
the direction of the latter, cover a wide
spaco by their entangled mass, and at
tain a length of 30 feet or more. When
the plant grows 1n any quantity, it
forms large floating islands, and the
surface of the sea becomes impassable
to boats. The stem, when dry, is em
ployed by the Aleutians for fishing
lines, Fomo of which have a length of
10 or more fathoms. The large bladders
are used by the same people as syphons
for pumping water out of their boats.
