' Moscow, May 26. To-day was the chief day of all the ceremonies con nected with the coronation of the czar the day up to which all the previous days had led and were preparatory to. The weather was fine, the crowds Im mense, the pageant brilliant and grand in the extreme. The army, the diplo mats, potentates, princes, priests and peasants were in the, mighty throngs that, witnessed the scene. . I j , At s:ia o ciock numerous men ana wo- en of the court, in brilliant dresses 'J and uniforms, entered and took their places, and at 8:30 the great bell in the Ivan tower began to ring, giving the signal to all other bells which took up the peal and resounded throughout the city. A large number of bishops and priests, in magnificent ceremonial robes, were in attendance, the bishops with golden mitres and gold-embroidered chasubles, the priests in white sur plices with golden chasubles. Some of the priests were busy within the ikon 'ostas lighting the tapers on the altar and preparing the elements for the cel ebration of the eucharist, while others were grouped in their several places about the ikonostas. The first of the imperial party to ap pear was the dowager czarina, mother i OJ. tile emjjeiui, wuu uttiuc Bvya.ia.iciy i i from the emneror and emnress and their attendants. , The dowager empress wore a crown and an Imperial mantle and was accompanied by those members of the imperial family who were not included in the czar's cortege and the ladies and officials of her court. Four chamberlains bore her train as she as cended her throne on a dais level with the other two thrones. Over the dowager czarina's throne hung a magnificent baldachin, and on a pillar covered with red velvet was the initial letter M In gold. On the oppo site nilln.r wfl.s trip letter N with thfi 'si numeral 2 below It. The czarina's in itial was not visible, being covered by the great baldachin. Immediately afterward, amid tumult uous shouts from outside, the emperor and 'empress appeared at the door. They were received by the clergy and escorted to the steps of the altar. The emperor was In the dark green and gold uniform of a general of the Guards, with high boots. The empress wore a silver robe with a long train, which was borne by four pages. Arriving at the altar steps, the Metropolitan of Moscow and the Grand Duke Serglns welcomed the emperor and empress in the holy building. The Metropolitan of St. Petersburg present ed the cross for them to kiss, and the Metropolitan of Kieff presented the ho ly water to them. : ' After bowing three times below the altar and kissing the sacred images, their majesties ascended the steps and took their places in front of the altar, with their backs to the thrones. The scene was one of great beauty as the imperial pair stood awaiting the ser vice which was to proclaim them em peror and empress of all the Russias. The blaze of gold and silver, the bril liancy of the uniforms and orders, the richness of the Russian court toilettes worn by the women, the sparkling and precious gems, the clouds of incense rising from behind the ikonostas and pervading the church, and the solemn sweetness of the singing which now again began, all contributed to the splendor of the occasion. As the emperor and empress entered the cathedral, the choir sang Psalm 101,"Misericordiam et judicium cantabo tibi domine." The Metropolitan of St. Petersburg, as the hymn of the choir ceased, step ped forward and handed the emperor a missal, saying "Gratias spiritus sanctl sit semper tecum. Amen." He bade him read aloud the orthodox creed, which he did in a voice audible to all. This was followed by the reading of the Litany, with prayers for God's blessing upon the czar's government. The choir then sang "God is the Lord," with the response, "Lord, Save Thy People." The Metropolitans of Kieff and St. Petersburg then assisted the czar to don the imperial mantle, made of cloth of gold lined with ermine, which was pre sented on two golden cushions by court chamberlains. After donning the mantle the em peror assumed the diamond collar of St. Andrew, the Metropolitan of St. Petersburg saying: "In nomine Patris et "Filli et Spiritus Sanctl. Amen." Then turning to the altar, the czar bowed his head to the prelate of Nov- i gorod, who crossed his hands upon his i majesty's forehead, and said: "May the Lord anoint him with the ! oil of joy; may He. clothe him with Snnww nnrl nla.ce urton his head a crown i " - U of precious stones of long life; may He give into his right hand the sceptre of salvation, set him upon the throne of righteousness, and preserve with His protection the established rule." Immediately after this the czar re ceived ithe crown from the Metropolitan of St. Petersburg, and, standing In full sight of all the people and still before the altar, with both hands placed the crown upon his head. Then, taking his sceptre, in -which blazed the famous Orloft diamond, in his Tight hand, and the globe of the empire in his left, he ascended the dais and took his seat upon the throne.the empress still stand ing in her former place. This was the supreme moment of all, and gazing around the church and ieeeing representatives from nearly ev No. 179 Crown St., opposite Grand Y. M. C. A. Building, ery district of this mighty empire, and beholding the czar sitltng on his throne of state, with the symbols of power given to him by the highest authority in the land, one had a realizing sense of the great power wieldod by the man in whoso honor this great function was held. At the moment of his taking his seat on the throne the cannon at the arsenal thundred forth, the bells rang and the bamjs massed outside played the na tional anthem. The emperor, after oc cupying the throne for a few seconds, rose and placing the sceptre and the globe on the table by his side, turned to the empress and, taking off his crown, touched her forehead to it. She then knelt before him on a crimson velvet cushion, when the emperor placed upon her head her own crown, which is sur mounted by a large sapphire. The em presses' ladies of honor fixed the crown upon her head with a gold comb, and then robed her In her mantle of cloth of gold, ermine lined like the emperor's. She was also invested with the collar of St. Andrew and was led to her throne by the emperor and remained seated at his side. The emperor at that point resumed his sceptre and orb and the clergy broke forth into the magnificent anthems, "Domine Salvum Fac Imperatorem" and "Domine Salvum Fac Imperatii cem," of course, in the old Slavonic tongue, the choir answering "Ad Multos Annos." The members of the imperial family and the royal princes now advanced and congratulated the Imperial pair, while others in the church bowed thrice to ward the throne, thus expressing their felicitations. Suddenly the cannon, bells and bands ceased, and a deep si lence ensued, while the czar knelt and solemnly uttered the following prayer: "Lord, God of My Fathers, King of Kings, by whose single word the uni verse was created and by whose wis dom the destiny of mankind is guided. Thou rulest the world In holiness and justice. Thou, hast elected me to be a ruler of this Thy people. I trust in Thy goodness toward me. I thank Thee and bow to Thy power. Direct Thou my way in the accomplishment of the mission which Thou hast entrusted to me. Endow me with the knowledge of the right, strengthen my hands for this great work. May I be permeated with the wisdom that goeth forth from Thy throne. May my heart abide in Thy hands, that my life may be full of love toward my subjects, that I may on the great day of judgment stand before Thee with a clear conscience." When the czar rose from his knees the Metropolitan of St. Petersburg be gan a prayer for the emperor, at which everyone In the cathedral knelt, with the exception of the emperor, who stood erect, wearing his crown. The Metropolitan then stepped for ward to the foot of the dais and made a short address to the czar on the Im portance of the duties of his office, end ing with these words: "With this visi ble and corporal adornment of thy head Is clear proof that Christ, the King of Honors,' invisibly crowns thee head of the Russian empire." After the emperor took the sceptre the Metropolitan of St. Petersburg said: "God hath crowned this God-given, God-adorned, most God-fearing auto crat and great monarch emperor of all the Russias. Take thyself the sceptre and ball of empire, the visible image of the sole sovereignity over the people given by the most High for their gov ernment, promotion and every desirable well being." After this the choir sang the Te Deum and the bells of the Kremlin again rang out. At the invitation of the metro politan the royal couple then descend ed from the dais and walked to the en trance of the sanctuary, where the Me tropolitan of St. Petersburg with a branch of gold, sprinkled the forehead, the eyes, Hps, nostrils, ears, breast and the palms and the backs oT the hands of the emperor with consecrated oil, the prelate of Kieff removing the oil with a linen cloth. The empress was merely sprinkled upon the forehead. Resuming their places upon the dais mass was now begun, and after the con secration of the elements, the emperor, the train of his coronation robe being borne by the clergy, entered the sanc tuary behind the ikonostas and receiv ed the communion. The empress like wise received communion, but kneeling at the sanctuary steps, as women are not allowed within the ikonostas. After the communion the emperor and empress reascended their thrones, their Insignia being borne before them and all the court dignitaries grouped around them. The czar's chief almoner then recited the prayers which follow the communion, concluding with the inton ation of the "Domine Salvum Fac Im peratorem" and "Domine Salvum Fac Imperatricem." The choir sang the "Ad Multos Annos" three times. The long ceremony was concluded by each of the annointed kissing a golden crucifix, containing a sacred relic, which was held up by the Metropolitan , of Kieff. And a salvo of cannon and the clanging of bells, to which were joined the mighty acclamations of the people, the emperor and empress, arrayed in their coronation splendor, emerged from the northern door of the cathedral un der a gorgeous canopy, borne aloft by four court chamberlains. The emperor holding the sceptre and orb, preceded the empress by a few paces. The two walked around outside the Ivan Veliki, which was surround ed by tribunes filled with guests, and re-entered the cathedral square between the Ivan tower and the Cathedral of the Archangel Michael, which they enter ed, and thence walked, to the Cathedral of the Annunciation, several high dig nitaries carrying the trains of their mantles. The strains of the National Anthem, the joyful pealing of the bells, the thun der of the cannon and the Joud pro longed roar of the people, who strug gled with each other to see their crown ed emperor and his consort, contributed to make an unforgettable scene to thoee who witnessed it.

At the top their majesties stopped, and, turning toward their subjects, bowed. They then en tered the palace. The emperor and empress subse quently dined in state in the banquet ting hall of the Granovltaya Palace, wearing their imperial crowns and mantles. The members of the imperial family and the chief clergy and high dignitaries of the empire were their guests, and officers in gala uniform served them. Every dish for the em peror and empress was brought in with especial ceremony by a general, follow ed by the masters of ceremonies, at tended by pages. A court chamberlain poured out the wines.

The funeral of- the late Willis M. Smith of the firm of Smith, Sperry & Treat, the mason builders, will take place from his late residence on Orange street to-morrow afternoon and there will no doubt be a large attendance of business men and others prominent In this city, the deceased having been for so many years a prominent builder and a citizen much esteemed. Mr. Smith was a native otWoodbrldge.born April 5, 1819, was the son of Daniel Treat and Rebecca Sperry Smith. He was the ninth in a family of ten chil dren, five sons and five daughters. His father died when he was fourteen years of age, having been suddenly killed by the falling of a tree. Mr. Smith worked on his father's farm and attended school until 1835 when he came to this city and was appren ticed to the firm of Hine, Peck & Per kins, to learn the mason's trade. The late Stephen P. Perkins, also a Wood bridge man, was junior member of this firm. That year he worked on the San ford building, now known as the Union Trust company building. He was also employed on the Hallock residence at the "Hallock Place," this side of City Point, and the Free church on Church street, afterward the American theater. The following year, 1836, after the great fire, he went to New York and took part in rebuilding the burned district. Returning to this city he served oui his time and after working several years as a journeyman, formed a co partnership in 1S47 with Hon. N. D. Sperry. The firm still exists under the name of Smith, Sperry & Treat, Ar thur B. Treat, who has been for years past a prominent factor In all the firm's large building contracts, having been taken in as a partner about five years ago. In 1849 they built the O. E. Maltby residence In Fair Haven. Among the buildings they erected was the Hall block in Orange street, Judson building in State street, Tremont house in 1862, Farnam college in 1869, Durfee, the In surance building, the White building on Church and Center streets, Tyler building in Chapel street, Garfield build ing in Chapel street, the new English building in Chapel street, Kensington fiat, Lawrence hall, Wolf's Head build ing at Trumbull and Prospect street, Sloane Memorial laboratory, the Win chester observatory, chancels of St. Paul and Trinity churches. Besides these they built many fine residences in this city and scores of buildings in Massachusetts, New York and other states. One of their most important contracts was the soldiers' and sailors' monu ments at East Rock. Throughout the work and wherever a basis of opera tions had been established at a new altitude, he was the first person to mount and occupy it On one occasion when the highest position for a derrick was reached he climbed to the cross beam and assuming an heroic position remarked to those below him: "Boys, there's a fine view up here." When the time for closing the top of the shaft arrived a single derrick in the center, supported by timbers, was erected, the frame being In the form of a triangle, It was a difficult Job a. hearty cheer went up when the job was finished. Mr. Smith devised an adjustable der rick for raising stones, suited to greater or less heights. He also perfected a formerly unknown method for laying butldlng stone In the winter season. He married, November 25, 1844, Mary E., daughter of Wyllys Sperry, a prom inent resident of Woodbridg'e, who sur vives. They celebrated their golden wedding two or three years ago, the oc casion being attended by a large num ber of prominent people. Mr. Smith also leaves a daughter, Mrs. Edward W. Dawson of this city. Mr. Smith was distinguished for his modest and retiring disposition and for his love of home life. He had been a member of the Church of the Re deemer many years. Hon. N. D. Sperry has come on from Washington to attend the funeral of his aged partner. They were ever the warmest of friends and for many years were near neighbors on Orange street. Mr. Sperry will return to Washington directly after the funeral, important business at the national capital calling him back at once and the close of the session being now near at hand. He was much affected on hearing the news of the death of Mr. Smith and in speak ing of him yesterday added his testi mony to that of many others as to the blameless and honorable life of this de ceased townsman and their many years of intimate relationship in business life and socially, during all of which his high estimation of the deceased was never altered, but ever more than sus tained. THE T.ATE MISS Br SHOP. Medical Examiner White has not con cluded the examination of the kidneys taken on Sunday from the body of Miss Sarah O. Bishop for further microscopic investigation. Mrs. Bishop, mother of the young wo man, says that her daughter had been subject, from early childhood, to ner vous attacks, and that many nights she could not sleep. Miss Bishop was suffering from one of these attacks on Friday and her mother remonstrated with her for at tempting to work. The young lady, acting upon her desire to keep at her duties, went to Dr. Skinner's office in spite of her mother's advice. She said that she would take something for headache, of which she was complain ing when she left home. "My daughter was of a bright and happy disposition," said Mrs. Bishop yesterday, "and she was looking for ward with great pleasure to the time, about next August, when she would leave the doctor's office and do no more work except helping her brother. She had always been subject to fits of ner vous exhaustion. When she was going to school she used to have peculiar at tacks caused by weak nerves, and we kept her out of school a year on this account. Many and many a night she could not sleep, and often she would call me to her room and I would re main w ith her, rubbing her head, un til morning. Several times she felt wholly unable to go to the doctor's of fice, and I went there in her place. She had just bought a whe. and this was apparently doing her good, because she was able to sleep well after a ride in the evening.

Thrown Off a Cable Car. New York, May 26. Suit is about to be brought against the Broadway Ca ble company by Miss Helen Johnson of 158 West Eighty-fifth street, represent ed by the law firm of Hatch & Wickese, for damages sustained by Miss John son on March 15 last. The amount claimed will probably be $50,000. According to Miss Johnson's state ment she was riding down town on the afternoon of March 15, which was Sun day, and signalled the conductor to stop at Twenty-ninth street. The latter was inside the car and did not follow her to the platform to see that she had alight ed, but pulled the bell when she had one foot on the last step. The car shot ahead, throwing her to the earth so violently that her hip was broken in two places, making her a cripple for life. Miss Johnson's lawyers say the case is such a clear one that they can win the suit with very little other evidence than her own statement. The extent of her injuries could not be determined until recently, when it was found that Miss Johnson was hopelessly crippled. "W0EN0UT." A Common Expression Used by - American Women. Many do not Realize the Full Significance of Those Two Words. When a woman is nervous and irri table, head and back ache, feels tired all the time, loses sleep and appetite, has pains in groins, bearing-down sensation, whites and irregulari ties, she is not "worn out," but feels as if she were. Such symp toms tell her that a womb trouble is imminent, and she cannot act too promptly if she values hei future comfort and happiness. The experience and testimony ol some of the most noted women oi America, go to prove beyond a ques tion that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will correct all such troubla at once by removing the cause and restoring the organs to a healthy and normal condition. If in doubt, writa Mrs. Pinkham, at Lynn, Mass., M thousands of women do. Here is a lady who says: " Let me add my name to your list of testimonials. For years I suffered with such a weakness of the back 1 could not stand straight. I had terri ble pains in my womb.

Stepping back he ftlck ed up a club, and at the same time heard a rustle on his right sidei t On looking in the direction he saw a Ibig, fiat-headed adder. He does not deny that he had strange sensations with a snake on either side of him, not aver eight or nine feet between the two. i He struck at the black fellow, then tim ing to the right, hit the adder, flnisling each with a few extra blows. Instead of taking home honeysuckle vine he pulled the two snakes which were view ed by many callers on Sunday. The black measured five and one-half leet, and the flat-headed added thirty inches.
