the events of the ordinance which waB
newly annexed territory to the tax for

cerned. Opinion was closely devided
and the debate animated and in somo
places hot. The discussion was mainly
on an amendment offered by Alderman
Lacy to includo tho new territory in
tho school tax. Aldermen Lacy,
II. Forsgard and Mayor Hinchnian
favoring the taxation, the others oppo

several ties in voting, tho matter was

Alderman Forsgard made a report
on cemeteries, which cited carelesncss
in transfers of lots, and a resolution
was passed instructing the city secre
tary to overhaul the records of the
council on cemeteries, and to make a
report to the council. Alderman Fors

First street cemetery, and ho had, ho
said, instructed the sexton to refuse
burial of colored peoplo there, espec
ially in the masonicpart thereof. The

A motion to allow ono bath connec

The motion was then reconsidered and
The mayor reported that cases were

Decoration at Oakwood and Fifth
IE PROCESSION AND EXERCISES AT
VIRST STREET CEMETERY.
Tho fears o, a rain to-aay wero hap
pily dispelled this morning and tho
weather was favorable for tho sad and
interesting ceremonies to which the
day was devoted. At 9:30 this morn
ing a number of ladies and gentlemen
took cbargo ot the decorations of
graves in the Oakwood and Fifth street
cemeteries, and not a grave was neg
lected or omitted. Too last resting
places of tho Bluo and Grav alike were
covered with tho frail but pleasing re-
memberanocs woven ter days past by
tho industry of fair ladies. Tho kind
offecs performed in thoso two ceme
teries was wholly informal but nono
tho less grateful. The moro imposing
ceremonies which constituted the main
features ot tho day began at 2 o'clock
The committes in charge of tho pre
paratory work in the First street ceme
tery had done a vast amount of work in
clearing away the grass from tho graves
and putting them in neat repair, as
well as private citizens on family
graves, and scores of graves were hand
somely adorned with flowers before the
regular decoration began.
Over tbe gates fading into tho
cemetery a banner was stretched beau
tifully painted, and bcarinir betweon
tne Union and Confederate flags, tho
motto, "Uur doad, sleeping sido by
side, unite us.
A hundred feet from'the main en
trance is a squaro monument twenty
feet high in imitation of granite. Ono
side bore tho inscription "North," fol
lowed by a pair of hands clasped and
below the hands tho word ''South."
On the faoo side was tho inscription,
"Our dead," and on the reverse, "The
unknown dead.'' The monument was
already deeply banked with flowers.
Tho procession was ono of Iho long
est seen in Waco and in order as given
in tho News of yesterday evening. Tho
turnout of citizens was very general,
nearly all tho publio and private ve
hicles in tho city being brought into
requisition, whilo hundreds of people
on foot awaited the procession at the
grounds, accompanied it or followed
after. Tens of thousands of flowers
were used, not a garden in the oity but
contributed its floral offerings to the
sad rites of tho day. Third street dur
ing the procession was densely
packed, nearly from tho female college
to tho cemetery. Hundreds of sohool
children, each bearing flowers, formed
one of the prettiest features of the pro
cession. Thero were thousands of people on
the grounds around the ctand, which
was in a beautiful grove, just outside of
the gravo yard. Tho. programme of
exercises was carried out charmingly,
and the services throughout, in song,
prayer, Tecitation, speeches and decor
ation ceremonies, breathes a spiret of
sorrow and fraternity, eminently,
grand, decorous and touching.
To-night tho dead soldiers will sleep
no moro sweetly under their canopies
of flowers than they sleep beneath tho
fallen leaves or sheets of snow, but for
tho living tho services of the day have
their slautory influence which will not'
soon be forgotten.

Every Russian trading post, accord
ing to Mr. Dall, has a bath houso, and
once a week all the peoplo avail them
solves of its privileges. Tho apparatus
is simple, not to say primitive, but
tho method is what might be called
heroic, especially the dressing in a
room where the temperature is below
zero. A rudo arch of loose stones is
built, and more stones piled over it,
so that a flro made beneath tho arch
can penetrato .between them.
There is no chimney, but a trap
door in the roof. A large cask of
water heated for tho purpose, and an
other of cold water, generally with
ice floating in it, and a succession of
benches, ono above the other, com
plete tho equipment
When tno stones aro thoroughly
heated and tho smoke has all passed
out, all coals aro removed and the
trap door is shut; any smoke or coals
remaining will make the eyes smart
and the bath very uncomfortable.
Each one leaves his clothing in an
outer room, and on entering wets his
head and throws hot water on tho
heated stones until as much steam is
produced as ho can bear. Then ho
mounts as high on tho benches as ho
finds comfortable, and the perspiration
issues from every pore.
Next he takes a sort of broom or
bunch of dried mint or birch twigs,
with tho leaves still on them, which is
prepared at tho proper season and
called meenik. With this ho thrashes
himself till all impurities are thorough
ly loosened from tho skin, and finishes
with a wash off in hot water and soap.
Then taking a kantag, or wooden dish,
full of ice cold water, he dashes it over
himself, and rushes out into tho dress
ing room. .
This lost process is disagreeable to
tho uninitiated, but is absolutely nee;
cssary to prevent taking cold. I havo
known cases of acute rheumatism
brought on by omitting it. Tho dress
ing room is spread with straw, and al
ways communicates with tho outer
air. Tho temperature is oi'ten many
degrees below zoro, but such is tho ac
tivity of tho circulation that ono dress
