Admitting that the av | *ra«e «luration of human life is ycari, the deaths will be 45,455,0*0 a *ye«r. According to the most reliaMedata.it ' costs alxiut an average of SIOO to de -1 fr iv the expenses of a Christian funeral. ■ If, therefore all the nations of the earth I were Christians, the funeral bills would amount to $4,.'145,'>06,000 annually. The question that will h t an early day confront economists w ill be, cannot s >mo way be dtvised to die cheaper* Evidentlj-jit cf»ts too much to get de cently under the sod—too much fur rosewood coffins, plumed hearses, muii uiiiental marble, fashionable cemetery ' lots and mourning costumes. Fashion is too supreme at funerals. The fickle goddess is too potential in dictating the fit and fabric of shroud and winding sheet and the style of silver plates aud nails. Mourning goods are jnanufac- ' tured to order and graded first, second ami third, every «igh has its peculiar tint until at last the world observes, that the days of sadness are past and the "dear departed" are forgotten. The poor can hardly afford to die, a rude country coffin no longer answers the purpose. The style of a burial case is a matter of deep concern, and in many case# the living are robbed of the aIW lute nceessarirs of life that the dead may have a fashionable funeral. Spec illation in cemetery lots is now a feature in teal estate transactions, and there are aristocratic avenues in the cities of the dead as well as in the cities of the living. I*iidc erects its monuments on the grand thoroughfares, and the gap inir crowd discuss the former opulence of those who lie under sculptured mar ble. The population of the United States is estimated at 40,000,000, which will give, according to accepted death rates, about 123,000 annually. Estimat ing the average cost of a funeral at ♦ I'M) we havw a death tax of about $125,000,0<>0 annually, or something over $3 per capita for every man, wo man and child in the country Mani festly this sum is too large. Common Bf-r.se demands that it should be re duced. The discussion will hardly be undertaken by the ui.dertukors, and the livery stable may regard it as somewhat hackueyed, nevertheless the fact stands that it costs too much to die.— Indiana ]>oli» tienfind. Self-Sacriflcing. This is a true story. The r.appy cir cumstance occurred one Sunday even ing. He escorted her to and from church, and upon arriving at her home their discussion of the sermon und the extreme heat suggested an invitation, readily accepted by Charles, that they step into the house and partake of a cooling glass of lemonade. She led him into the drawing-room, and there found naughty brother Hen about to squeeze the last lemon in the house for his own individual benefit Calling him aside, she induced lieu, by means of sundry theats and promises, to dissect the lemon aud make Charles and herself a glass of lemonade. A self-sacrificing thought struck her. "No Ben," said she, "put the juice uf the whole lemon into Charles' aud bring me a glass of water. He won't notice it. There is no light in the drawing-room." Ben was making the strong lemonade, as directed, when Charlie quietly slip ped out, and remarked: "I say, Ben, put the juice of the en tire lemon iu your sister's glass, and bring me some water ; there is no light in the drawing-room, and she wou't know it." lieu's forte was iu olteying orders. With a merry twinkle in his eye, he drank the lemonade, and then carried them each a glass of water, which they drank with much apparent relish, ask ing each other, between sips, "if it was sweet enough r" Aud naughty brother Ben, with the taste of that lemonade in his mouth, stood out in the hall, and Uuglied till his sides ached to hear them assure each other that it was "just right? —so paUtable and refreshing!"

SEATTLE. WASHINGTON TERRITORY, WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 29, 1577, Origin of the Word '* Gerryman. In 1810, after many bitter, and until th'-n ineffecaal, ftrnggles, the Demo crats el-?cted Klbridge Gerry governor of Massachusetts. In order to =ecare the election of Democratic I'nited States senators in the future, the State was redistrictel in such a manner as to throw the majority of federal voters into districts by them selves. In Kisex county the new ar rangement of the towns was most ab sura. Hussell, the able editor of the Boston Sentinel, the Federalist organ, fought the scheme bravely. Taking a map of Essex county, designated by col oring the towns thus "unequally yoked together." and hung it on his office wall. Gilbert Stuart, the painter, saw it, and said the towns Kusselt designat ed resembled some monstrous animal. Taking a pencil liu added head, wings, claws and tail. "There," said Stuart, "that will do fur a Salamander." Uus sell, looking up from hii writiug at the hide»>us figure,- exclaimed, "Salaman der : call it Gerrymander." The word was immediately adopted into the political vocabulary of the day as a term of reproach to the Democratic legislature. Stuart's picture was en graved, and, with a natural and politi cal history of (Jerrymander, was print ed on a broadside and sent all over the State as a campaign document. How well the (Jerry-wander worked may be learned from the fact that in the next election twenty nine Democratic Senators were elected and only elenn Federal, but it took 51,75 ii votes to elect the eleven and only 50,164 to elect the twenty.nine.
