The Burial Reform association, to
encourage simplicity in disposing ofjj
the dead, has l>een organized in New
York city, by several progressive
clergymen. They arc going to advo
cate a radical change and reform based
en public safety and economy. It is to
be the duty of the clergy to advocate
the abolition of the present methods ?>f
burial and to urge people to use wicker*
caskets or papier mache coffins in thcii
future. As these caskets will not last
long, this form of burial provides an
"earth to earth" burial as expressed in
the Bible. It is claimedt says an easts
ern exchange, that the plagues of Lon
don have been traecd directly to 1 In
dentation of its underground watewjj
and the corruption of its atmosphere by
putrefying bodies in the great ceme
teries near the city. That treat
pestilence awaits the city of New York
in the near future, is the argument rifj
those who have enlisted their energies
in the burial reform movement. The
new caskets will facilitate the rapid,
decomposition of the hnman body.
The elements of the earth and air lif
the earth mingle with the body shortly,;
after burial and work out their natural^
effect without corruption. The new
movement simply means the use of
burial outfits that will not retard de
composition. It will prevent bodieig
underground from becoming a mass of:
corruption, while at the same time it>
will remove a menace to health and the
severe drain upon the family purse,
The idea of the burial reformers will
no doubt prove a popular one with the
mass of people. The undertakers, of;:
course, will furnish considerable oppo~;
sition, but, as they are in the minority,
their arguments will probably prove ofl

Tub Massachusetts tax assessors are
having difficulty in their efforts to as
sess the tax on bicycles provided for by
a recent law of that state. They gen
erally report that they have been able
to get hold of hardly half the wheels
in use, and in some places could not
have made even that showing had it
not been for the wheelman's direct
torics, published before the tax law
was passed. Many of the wheels are
owned by minors, whose property to
the value of one thousand dollars can
be exempted. The Massachusetts as
sessors had a similarly bothersome
task some years ago in the taxation of
hens, of which the legislature subse
quently relieved them.

Luckily for railway conductors the
average traveler keeps the Beat in
which he is first found. The conductor
is by no means the infallible person that
some folks think him, and only this
habit of the traveling publlo enables
him to keep track of newcomers. Every
stranger who moves from one Beat to
another thus becomes an object of sus
picion to the conductor, and is watched
lest he be trying to ride free. As to

he chose he could swindle the company

A Dubuque (la.) man lately took a
lot of quarter dollars and chiseled off
the first ay liable of the word "quarter"

to "nil making- the inscription read
"ten dol." Then he gilded the coins
and offered them to tradesmen at a par
value of ten dollars each. It was an
ingenious scheme, but Uncle Samuel's
myrmidons are no blind worshipers of
ingenuity. The gentleman from Du
buque is now languishing in jail.

They are fed to chickens for that pur
