lr. Deems on Kuncralrt.
Dr. Djems, of the Church of the Strangers,
New Yorit, is called on to attend more funer
als than mo?t clergymen, and is pained to
see the extravagant display which is fre
quently indulged in by (hose who can least
afford it. He says: "The Methodist clergy
men in Washington have, done a sen
sible thing in unitedly protesting
against unseemly display and unnecessary
(xpenses at funerals. It is svjKgested that
the general distribution of crape and gloves
b'j dispensed With, and that only the nearest
relatives of the deceased jwearni 'Uincg; also
that the usual exhibition of flowers be given
up, and that the number of carriages be re
duced as far as possible. Now let the mima
teis ol other cities iollow suit and the ex
pence of eying can bo materially reduced.
In New York the cost of a' fashionable funer
al is from three hundred dollars to fifteen
hundred dollars." In Rochester, Pittsburg,
Chicago, and several other large cities, the
clergymen have taken action similar to the
protest of the Washington clergy.
A Two ailoute Trotter.
Chicago Tribune: "Mr. Bonner never al
lowed Dexter to trot a rac3 after he pur
chased 'the king of the turf,' and it is not
likely that he could have added anything to
his laurels if he had been allowed to make
another public trial. Goldsmith Maid, Rarus,
Hopeful, Great Eistern and several other fast
horses have beaten Dexter'a best time. Now,
however, Mr. Honner has purchased Edwin
Forrest for sixteen thousand doliars, which
is said to be t'aa most remarkable trotter in
the world. He trotted at Hartford in 2:14.
The theoiy of many horsemen that the fast
est horse would be a iarge horse is sustained
by this early perfoimance of Forrest. He is
sixteen hands high. At tbe same time he is
hatWsom nod wHl proporh nrcl. S?m
thirgs vihich would seem extravagant about
any horse ace said about the performances of
Forrc-et, and yet old trotting men tell us they
are perfectly true. For instance, so careful
a paper as the Spirit of the Times, in an ac
count of Forrest's trotting at Havtfoid, says
of one quarter: . 'If ever a two-minute gait
was struck by a trotter, it was by Edwin For
rest during this quarter.' Either all the
trotting men must have lost tneir hi ads, or
the horse has no equal."

Latter to the Xeu England Farmer : "If
we will go into many a farmer's kitchen,
about five o'clock on a cold winter morning,
we shall too often see the woman of tho boue-e
siUiug by the stove whittling shavings with a
dull knife: vith which to start the fire. Now,
as one's bappinesi for tho day depends in a
great measure on how the day is beg,UD, you
wiil easily see what au annoyance it is tp
whittle shavings in a temperature down to
zoro. This unpleasant task can be easily
avoided by two hours work in the fall, before
the ground is covered by snow. Let the
faroiet- .;d his hired man take a team, with
rakes and basket., into the woods, and rake
together fifty buahels of pine needles, and
haul them home and stow in some dry place

and should not know how to do without them.

Adventure of a Postal :nrJ
Washington, November 21 A striking
iliuttrutiou of the extent and excellence of the
arrangements for int-rnational mail service,
which have resulted from the postal union, is
given in an onioial publication received by
6ur superintendent of foreign mails fioui the
heme central bureau. A resident of Chem
nitz, Saxony, mailed at that place, at seven
o'clock in the evening, on the twenty-fourth
of May last, a posta:-;ard addressed to him
self, currying the request to all postmasters to
dispatch it successively, aud without loss of
time, to Alexandria, Singapore, Yokohama,
San Francisco and New York, and thence to
Chemnitz, his object bsing to win a wajer
that, with the existing postal arrangements,
the circuit of the world could thus be made
by postal mati-r? within one hundred and
twenty days. The request was complied with,
ind the card arrived in Chemnitz from New
York on ti.o poe hundred and seventeenth
day after the date of the original mailing.

Pardoned la Advance.
The fUlowing very peculiar excuse is now
off;red conc-'.cing tbe President's, action in
the C-i?e of Carey W. Miller. It wiil strike
an ordinat-y mirjd that if the President can
use a pardon before a cocristiori, or even in
dictment, grand juries and couris might as
well be abolished. Attorney-General Devens
ii acihsrity for the statement that an exam
ination of Ui records shows that the friends
of Miller applied t J the President to issue
him a pardon to nave him fipm criminal
prosecution. This was done after the t-enk,
from which MiUer h id been accused of em
bezzling, had been paid the amount lost
through him. This request for pardon was
indorsed by a large number of influential
citizens of ludianapolis. The President,
while ho tiiOught the case presented to him
mijht justify the liseciie interference, con
cluded to postpone action until a iuiirjer in
vestigation could be had. So he simply,
through Attorney General Devens, instructed
tho uUritribi ctiorney not to present Miller's
case to the grand jury fr the present. Such
action, in all manner of ca?es, if tajf"n al
most every day throughout the country. 'The
President iat-n4ed no interference, and diel
te-t interfere in the lri.it with th Indianapo
lis grand jury. That body fcciil had the same
right to investigate the case, as it had been
formall? presented to them by the district-attorney.
A Trasedy wbleli Ontateps Kletlon En
ac(.-t at Port Washington, Obio.
Cincinnati special.. 21 st: "Ihe Port Wash
ington muider is developing into one of the
mo-t remarkable- crimes over committed in
the State. . Men have killed the seducers ot
the ir wives, but this is the only instance on
record in Ohio where a woman, the mother
of seven children, has killed another woman
for the seduction of her husband. M rs. Amy
B st, the widow who was killei, was herself
a grandmother. She had started out cce
evening, ostensibly to visit her grandchildren,
and next morning her dead body was found
in the edge of a wood, near a fence, her neck
broken, and marks of violence on her head.
The facts whioli have been developed show
that she was decoyed by Mrs. Stull to the
spot by means of a false note signed John
Stull, appointing a meeting at a haystack on
the farm at seven o'clock, in the evening.
There the two women met and engaged in a
hand-to-hand fight, which lasted until the
widow was a lifeless corpse. There was no
evidence to fasten guilt upon Mrs. Stull, and
she safely passed a trial before the coroner's
jury, bat she could not quiet her conscience.
Her deed haunted her, until she was driven
to an attempt at suicide in the canal. After
she had plunged into the water she changed
her mind, crawled out, and, to a passing
stranger, to'd the whole story of her crime.
She had believed for years that her husband
and the Widow Best were on terms of im
proper intimacy, and the suspicion embit
tered her whole life. She had contemplated
murder rnoie than once, but not until she
had taken her rival's life did she realize how
terrible the deed was. Mrs. Stull is in prison,
with her youngest child, a babe of three
months, in her arms; and the question i ,
'What to do with her'f' She has the sympa
thy of her neighbors and friends, and her
punishment will be a sorrowful problem for
the authorities."
How the Kast Ulrls of Hoelety Outstrip
their Parisian Sisters.
London World: "Ladies who a few years
ago would have considered the idea appall
ing, calmly array themselves in the glorified
dreeeing-gown known as a 'tea-gown, and
proceed to display themselves to the eyes of
their admirers. The reason, perhaps, is not
very far to seek. Certain adventurous dames,
who determined some years since on the in
vasion of man's last stronghold, the smoking-room,
arrayed themselves for the con
quest in bewitching rob" e chambre. Their
less enterprising sisfei iot quite daring to
follow them to nocturui extremities, were
unwilling to be defrauded of the opportunity
of adding another weapon of the arsenal of
tbe toilet, hence the origin of the tea-gown.
Of course it in no way resembles the dressing-gown
of utility. It is of elaborate
design and infinite cost. It is worn for
about an hour in the day, and yet, in a
counting-house visit of a week the same
must, on no account, be exhibited more than
twice, if, indeed, so much may be allowed.
It is absolutely useless and utterly ridiculous;
but this is not the worst that may be said
about it. It is, to all intents and purposes, a
deshabille, and so great is the force of asso
eia ion that the conversation is exceedingly
apt, nay almost certain, to become deshabille
as well. The gentlemen in houses where
tea-growns, prevail, relieve themselves of
their shooting attire and reappear very fre
quently in gorgeous smoking suits; there is
aa ease and sans aeon about the whole
proceeding that favors laxity of discourse,
and advantage is generally taken of the lati
tude allowed. At their first beginning tea
growns only put in an appearance when the
beverage from which they take their' name
was dispensed in the hostess's boudoir, and
only a rare and favored specimen of the op
posite sex was admitted on su lira nee. But
such old-fashioned prudery has long
b3en thrown aside in the eager de
sire for more admirers of such becom
ing raiment; the tea growns have ele
scended to the drawing-rcom and the hall,
and have become more marvelous and more
voyant in the transit. With the graceful
neglige toilet there has como in a habit of
lounging, which is certainly of moat doubtful
grace. Hands are not ucfre-quently to be
S-;en clasped above or behind tne head, thus
often liberally exhibiting the arm by the
falling back of the loose sleeve; feet and
ankles are lavishly iirtiptayed" uij dainty" slip"'
pen are rested on the fenderj more ardent
spirits recline in ostentatious repose on va
rious sofas. It is considered the thing to
suit the action to the attire and exhibit in it
the supremacy of ease. In some very Bohe
mian establishments it is voted a bore to
dress again for dinner; that meal is par
taken of in the easy masquerading attire,
and, as a not unusual sequel, there is a
prompt adjournment to the smoking-room
and a brisk demand by the ladies for cigar
ettes." Virgil's JHneld Disseeted.
Ada Columbiana: "In a late number of
the Oxford and Cambridge Undergraduates'
Journal, our old and highly-polished friend,
P. Virgihua Maro, is quite thoroughly
shaken up. After a little general discussion
of the poet, the writer proceeds to quote a
Jarge number of passages in which Virgil is
lnsonsistsct and oftentimes contradictory.
Take, for instance, ihe following:
" 'Down conies blind Cyclops to tne snorsv-
Postijuam altos terlglt ductus, et ad tequora veult,
Lumlnls eiloM llulUum lavlt hide e-ruareiu.
" 'He washes with its water the gore that
trickled from his scooped out eye.' Now
would anybody but a madman go and bathe
a bleeding wound in the sea the sea, of all
places? Why, he would have made Lis
head smart for a year; but Virgil wanted
him down on the shore, and must make him
do something. Note too 'fluidura cruorem;'
now, inline six hundred and forty-five of
the same book (three) the fugitive tails
.-Eneas that they put out the Cyclcp'a eye
three months ago, and so, according to Vir
gil, the wound bleeds incessantly for three
months (three days of bleeding would, ac
cording to niodeen doctois, have taken the
Jifo of even a stout Cyclops), and then the
giant (suuie down to thjs pfiore and bathes :t
in salt water.' 'Again, in tue tela
brated athletic fporta in Bock V, everybody
is rewarded with a priz-J. Ono man gets a
prize because be comes in first; the second
man gets one becans9 he would have b en
first if something hadn't happened, and the
fast man gets oae because he fell down. The
only parallel to such a practice is one afforded
by Artemus Ward, who, in command of a
volunteer force, makes all his men captains
to prevent jeaionay. In 5, 436,
Virgil, alter carefully telling us that Dares is
wonderfully nimble and Entallus wonder
fully 6low, lets the slow man chase the fast
one, wquore iota, bitting him ail the while.' "

A KontaiMie of the War.
A gentleman well acquainted with Colonel
Realt, and an ardent admirer cf his psetry,
relates a story told by him while the two
spent a night in conversation, criticism and
recollections so dear to men of his kind, over
t cesy fire and warm decoctions. He spoke
of the riigui before tjie battle at which Gen
eral W. L. Lytle fell.' The tcro (u-alf and
Lytle) lay together in the general's tent.
They were both given to writing poetry at
such times, and each had an unfinished
poena on hand, and they read and criticised
each other's ettorU hunjor03s!y for some
tim!, when said Lytle:
"Realf, I shall never live to fini3h that
" 'Nonsense," said I; 'ycr; will live to
write volumes of such stuff.'
' 'A feeling has suddenly come over me,'
continued the general, sotecsnly.-' which is
more startling than a prophecy, that I shall
be killed in to-morrow's fight. As I spoke
to you I 6aw the green hills of Ohio as if I
stood among them. They began to recede
from me in a veird way, and as they disap
peared the con vie' ion jashed through me
like a lightning's shock that i would never
see them again.'
"I railed him for his superstition, but the
belief had become strangely impressed upon
his mind, and he succeeded in so far thrill
ing me with his own unnatural fear that I
begged him to finish his poem before he
slept, that stub Cue works might not be lost
to the world.
"In the small hours the general awakened
me from a slumber into which 1 had fallen,
to read to me that beautiful poem, which
must live aa long as pur literature survives,
' I am drlng. Egrpt, drtng,
J,ba tbe crimson life-blood fast."

without cause or reason, shows animosity toward

By the Secretary. In which He Cites
the Condition, Expenses and Be
qulrementa of that de
partment. Washington, November 2t. The secre
tary of the navy. In his annual report, says: "Since
ray former report the condition of the navy has
been considerably Improved. There are now In
commission 28 cruising ships, 1 steamboat and 5
sailing vessels, all in condition for active service, ex
cept the Gettysburg. There are 6 vessels. Including
1 monitor, which can be made ready for sea In a
few months. Besides these there are 13 needing
more extensive repairs, but all can be put In thor
ough condition with tbe present appropriations aud
those asked for tbe next fiscal year. In case of ne
cessity 91 war vessels of ail classes. Including
monitois. can be put In the service. Tbe secretary
submitted the following estimates, with the remark
tnat the department has not felt Itself justified In
going beyond tbe estimates of the last fiscal year:
Pay of the navy, S7.S150.0O0; pay of the civil estab
lishment In tbe navy-yards, S18H,iW: ordnance
and torpedo corps, $273,000, coal, hemp and equip
ment, SHOO.OOO; navigation and navigation sup
plies, 104.500; hydrographlc work, S4H.0OO;
naval observatory nautical almanac, $43,800;
repairs and preservation of vessels, 81,500,000;
steam, machinery, tools, etc., SKOO.OOO; provisions
for the navy, SI. 200,000; repairs of hospitals and
Ubratorles. $30,000; surgeons' necessaries and
naval hospital fund, 95,000; contingent expenses
of the department and bureaus, $105,000; naval
academy, S18d,694; support of marine corps,
88H2.378; naval asylum at Philadelphia, $60,809;
maintenance of yards and docks. $440,000; repairs,
etc , of naval yards, $375,000. Total, S14.5rJ2.381.
From the tables contained In tbe report It will be
seen that tiie total estimates of the last fiscal year.
Including the amount appropriated for deficiencies
of the previous year, were S17,4ri8,392. After de
ducting deficiencies of 1877 and 1878, which were
S4.1tfl,478, the amount chargeable to expendi
tures or tbe year was $13,30(1,914. which was
$767,199 less than the actual expenses
of the previous year and S4.928.H77
less than the expenditures. Including the deficiencies
of that year, and $4 B30.430 less than tbe expendi
tures of the year ending June 80, 187tt. Secretary
Thompson discusses the relation of tbe navy to
commerce, and says: "Our rapidly Increasing ex
ports have demomtrated tbat this country has be
come the greatest producing country In the world.
Tbe aiea of our Improved lands Is annually enlarg
ing, keeping pace with our rapidly Increasing popu
lation, and giving assurance that the surplus of our
agricultural and manufacturing products will be
come correspondingly greater. every year In conse
quence of the skill of our manufacturers, artisans
and laborers, anil will, in ou future history,
bs called Into still further requisition; and as
experlenoj has shown that no nation can af
ford to leave Its commerce unprotected
uion the seas, the duty of protecting
oi-rs Is now greater and more urgent than It has
ever been before. The secretary shows cur de
pendency upon the foreign nations for transporta
tion of our surplus productions to the markets of
tbe world, and says: "If this condition of affairs Is
to continue our industrial interests must be left to
suffer still further Injury. Our iron, coal and timber
will decrease In value; the enormous freights we now
pay will continue to piess upon tbe producers of
our surplus exports, and our merchant-vessels will
In the end be entirely driven from the sea. If,
on the other hHnd. onr government shall adopt such
ineaAUtes as shall i,ut the country In position to
rei teiuil ucueiiTs oi lij comipeeeial enterprise,
and secure the profits on bur own carrylrg trade,
which properly belong to us, by means of such fos
tering care as the national government alone has
power to give, then cur navy should have such
strength and character given to It that It may be
able to furnish protection to our commerce whereso
ever ltbe needed." The remainder of tbe report Is
devoted largely to an account cf the condition of the
navy-yards In the country, tbe naval academy and
torptdo service, and suggestions regarding training
schools for boys, etc.

A singular remedy for indigestion recom
mended by an English magazine is chewing
different kinds of green leaves when out of
doors and swallowing the juice. Any leaves
not nauseous or poisonous are recommended.
The benefit is derived partly from the in
creased flow of the salivary fluid, and partly
from the tonic and stimulating action of the
leaf chewed. Before meals is a better time
to try the "remedy than after. The writer
gives a list of the leaves most likely to be
beneficial, among them being those of pine,
spruce or black thorn trees, currant and rose
busfces, mint, the petals of flowers, and the
stalks of mountain daisies, and the tender
portions of tbe stalks of grain or grasses.
