An ordinance regulating the estab
lishment of cemeteries was presented
by Aid. Cramer, from the ordinjyoce
committee, at last evening's meeting
of the citj council. According to it.
the establishment of a cemetery with
in one mile of the city limits is pro
hibited, without application to the
city council, accompanied by a peti
tion bearing the signatures of at
least fifty property holders residing
m tne immediate vicinity of the de
sired location. The question then
arofe as to whether the grounds re
cently purchased by the Jewish peo
ple in South Rock Island could be
used for burial purposes under the
restrictions of the ordinance prepent-
ea lor passage, uity Attorney Haas
stated that these people had gone
through an unlawful proceeding in
purchasing thi9 land with the inten
tion of using it for burial purposes,
having disregarded the statutes reg
ulating the establishment of ceme
teries. All cemeteries should be un
der control of the citv. Aid. Corken
said he had seen one of the represeu
tatives of the Jewish congregation.
who stated that the grounds in ques
tion would not be occupied for cem
etery purposes. The property would
be sold, and a location further south
selected, as people residing in the
vicinity had complained. The ordi
nance was laid over.
The FlambbiK Inspection.
Aid. Bladel called for a report on the
urain:tuc reruiaunr piumum? in
spection, which had been referred to
the city attorney for perusal. It was
read bv the clerk. Citv Attorney
Haas stated that nnder the ordinance
the city would hac charge of all
plumbing construction, the better
ment of sanitary conditions being the
oojeci in view. Me thought some
parts of it were too severe and could
be modified so as not to be so op
pressive. Aid. Fred Schroeder
thought the ordinance should be laid
over in order to give the aldermen an
opportunity to examine its objection'
able features. It was referred to the
ordinance and sewer committees.
A proposition from Davis Com
paoy to lay a water main on Twen
ty-second street and receive pay out of
next year s appropriations, was pre
sented by Aid. Koth from the water
works committee, who recommended
the laving of two blocks of 6-inch
mains on this street as a necessity
Aid. Kennedy said if this was al
lowed he wanted every petition here
tofore presented asking for water
works connections included nnder
the same terms, making a motion to
that effect. A substitute motion bv
Aid. Nelson was lost 6 to 6, the
mayor voting in the negative. On
the request of Aids. Nelson and
Johnson, as a majority of the mem'
bers of the waterworks committee,
the matter was laid over, under gov
Aid. Kuschmann reported that the
committee appointed to look into the
matter of opening Rmth avenue from
Seventeenth to Twenty-second street

ment, was adopted. A resolution in

Aa Exceedingly entertaining
1 intone la India.
The foreign mission society of Au
gustan college, gave a very enter
taining program at the college chap
el last Sunday evening. The mo-t
prominent part of the exercises was
a vtry interesting, as well as instruc
tive, address on the subject of "Mis
sions in India," by Rev. Dr. Edman,
the synod's missionary at Samnlcot-
ta, India. An audience of about nine
undred persons had assembled to
listen to the reverend doctor, who
poke in part as follows: "With but
half the area of the United States,
ndia has a population of more than
298,000,000 people, in consequence of
inch, it is about lz times as dense-
populated as is this country. In
his dense population of heathens.
more than 1,000 missionaries labor,
the fruit of which is today, a Chris
tian population of about 2,000,000
people." Ihe speoker here digressed
and spoke of the life and habits of
the people as follows: "A foreirner
could in no instance sustain life bv
eating the unwholesome food which
was the diet of the natives, for more
than a year or two at the utmost.
The average house of the natives,"
the speaker said, "could be erected
at the trifling cost of $4. 25, being
constructed from clay, bamboo and
plam leaves, these mansions were
utterly destitute of furniture of any
iml, and were not really intended
for residence purposes, but were
used as shelter from the elements.
The architecture of these clay huts.
was, of course, very crude. Xo win
dows and but a single door, would
lmit the light of day into them."
Continuing, the speaker said that the
oath i s were very indobnt, and
would never think of piflormins
lalmr uuless their supply of f-od was
hort. The average of a chamber
maid was about 4 cents imt dav.
while a young man could ern the
enormous amount of h e.T.ts per
day, or f 1.50 per month. At the
rate of $1.50 per month, a native
could earn sufficient fu: us with
which to pureli 10 2-nionths provis
ions, and never would he think of
working more than a month in case
he had earned sufficient fund with
which to purchase two mouths' ra
tions. Concerning their manner of
dress, the speaker said that a vard
of cloth would make a splendid robe
for even the most aristocratic.
Their love for jewelry and orna
ments," the speaker said, "knows no
bounds, and often a young lady
would withhold her final ve' most
emphatically unless assured by her
lover of an almost fabulous amount
of brilliants and gems of the greatest
value." Concerning the idulitry of
this superstitious people, tLc speak
er said that they now posse-.-ed mure
833.000.000 goils. The sjHjak. r here
produced two very unique sj-t-allcd
bouse gods, both 01 which were nia'le

and had no donbt been tho weans of
salvation to many a griia-faced
Concerning the great superstition
of this people, the speaker said that
in order to be protected from the
evil spirits, a small leather strap was
worn around the neck or strapped
tightly around an ankle. F.very ac
cident, every disease, in short, every
thing which endangered the lives of
the natives, was the direct interfer
ence of the devil. Sneakinz of the
practice of child marriages, the
speaker said that jrirls were often
given in marriage at the tender age
of 2 or 3 years, while boys of 12 or 13
summers were considered of sufheient
age und discretion to assume the du
ties of husband. The celebrr.tion of
a marriage in India was an occasion
for unbounded rejoicing. Upon such
an occasion the bride and groom were
usually carried around the city, fol
lowed oy a number of brass bands.
together with almost the entire pop
ulation of the village or city. At the
conclusion of the 14-davs' marriage
feast, the bride would return to her
parental home, where she remained
until she had reached her lSih year,
when another and final niarrixge was
again celebrated between the young
nuptials. If, as often hap'vus, the

site sex. This punishment was n a
measure an atonement for the demise
of her husband, w hich was caused by
the evil spirits, which also possessed
tne now young widow,
tfpeaking of the Telogn language
the speaker said that it required the
average child about one year in
which to learn the alphabet, it being
composed 01 more than 650 distinct
characters. - The speaker here re
peated from memory the Apostolic
creed in the Telugn" language. To
the writer, the first word of it was
about as follows: Kip-tzo-we-Hfrants

zip-che. The writer hereby
avers that the above word is correct,
both as to orthography and general
pronunciation, and produced a very
soothing effect as it grated upon the
sensitive tympanums of the cultured
ana enthusiastic audience. In con
elusion, the speaker quoted at some
length, statistics showing the great
work of Christian missionaries in
this far away country, and said that
he fervently hoped that there might
be found at least some young man at
this institution who would be willing
to carry the gospel to the millions of
lieathcn in distant India. J. E. G.
