garrisoning of a chain of frontier posts for
many hundred miles, which would mitcr

Germany. As a nav.il power, Spain is
something more than re.-pectable, a few of
her ships, such as the Almanza

The Germais navy is as yet not sufficiently
developed to cope with the French marine,
but if it were allied to that of Spain arid
still further, it Italy were to take a part,
the French coasts could be harried as thor
oughly as by England herself, if she were
at war with France. It requires but an
undemanding of such points for so change

An elaborate and logical article recent
ly appeared in the New Orleans Times
Democrat in favor of the cremation of dead
bodies. It is true that tho popular leeliug
is against tho practice. The populace,
however, are all more or less superstitious.
Under tho inspiration of their religious
teachings they acquire uotions which are at
variance with common sense aud ordinary
intelligence. And the popular feeling
against cremation is akin to tho nonsensical
prejudice against vaccination that if tho
Lord had not designed people to havo
mall-pox He would never have sent tho
scourgo among us. Tho recent experi
ment of a Brazilian physician prove con
clusively that tho germs of yellow fever im
pregnate tho earth in which tho bodies of
tho victims of that disease are buried. It
is fair to presume that other contagious
diaeasos may bo communicated in tho same
way. Hence tho urgumeut in favor of
cromation. By tho burning of tho bodies
of our dead wo certainly destroy tho ability
of the inanimate corpse to do any lurther
mischief in the world. Tho only agont
that is yet known tochomistry which will
destroy thegorms of curtain diseases is

know that there can bo any reasonable ob
jection to cremation. Clergymen can per
form their rites over the ashes of mortality
as well as over the body and they have
done it. The Romans when Rome became
the seat of an Imperial government, found
it necessary to adopt the cremation eystem,
aud despite of popular prejudice, it will yet
be adopted in all densely populated coun
tries. It is in the logical sequence ot events
that i should bo so. Palucah News.
