CREMATIONS IN AMERICA.
Rapidly Coming: Into Tract ico iu TliU
Country and Purnpe.
Tlio practice? of croniation steadily con
tinues tn gain ground in the eastern 03
well a? tho western continent. Already
it is common in ItAly, France, Spain and
the majority of the smaller foreign coun
tries as well as the larger. A dozen or
bo crematories havo been opened within
the last year, and at least double that
number are in process of construction.
In some Kuropeau countries, Italy, for
instance, there is scarcely a city without
one of thfMj societies. When a society is
once formed, it is only a matter of time
before a crematory is built.
This seems wonderir-1 to those who
realize how deep rooted was the prejudice
against the system, and how radical was
the change that the idea of cremation in
volved. Yet, despite its inauspicious be
ginning, tho strong seutiment against it
and the many obstacles in its path, the
reform has already obtained a strong
looting in this country and in tho old
world.
"When tho New York Crematory society
was organized in there only were
four crematories in existence, one at
"Washington, Ta., and three in Kurope.
In different parts of Europe today there
are over twenty-two crematories. Ixmdou,
Taris, Copeuhagtn, Florence, Venice,
Dresden, Brussels, Koine and many other
smaller towns all boast of their crema
tories. Another country in which the
form finds favor is Germany. During the
last year over 25,000 signatures appeared
on a petition laid before the reichstag.
Public interest has long been awakened
in France and England. There is about
to be erected in France a handsome and
commodious crematory, and an eminent
pli3rsician in his lecture estimates that it
will be able to consume about 6,000 bodies
annually. This is about the average num
ber of deaths in the hospitals of Paris
during the year. The bill which provides
for the cremation of the dead has already
passed the chamber of deputies and is now
before tho senate, and there is no doubt
but what it will become a law.
The movement has not gained much
headway in England, on account of par
liamentary opposition, strong religious or
rather superstitious objections and the
unfortunate incineration of Lady Pilko.
A more favorable change has taken place
lately, and the leaders of the reform, like
Sir Henry Thompson and several other
well known Englishmen, who arc strong
and enthusiastic supporters of cremation,
think that it is only a matter of time
when the reform will generally b3 adopted.
Many peoplo in this country who strongly
object to cremation are suprised to see the
headway the practice has gained here.
They did not think it would be adopted
on account of our having ample room for
burying grounds and cemeteries.
At the present time there arc cbout
twenty societies in the United Stater, and
all of them have put their principle into
practice, and have erected large fcnd spa
cious crematories. Besides that at Freth
Pond there are institutions at Pittsburg,
Washington. Pa.; Buffalo, Cincinnati,
Detroit and Lancaster. Others are being
erected at Davenport, la.; Philadelphia,
Baltimore and San Antonio. The Fresh
Pond institution was epeneel for the public
about two years ago. In that time there
have been cremated over 1"0 bodies, and
there are about a dozen applications on
hand at the present tirao. New York

Cor.federnte "War Maps.
So great was the demand for maps oc
casioned by frequent changes in the situa
tion of the armies, that It became Impos
sible by the usual method of tracings to
supply them. I conceived the plan of
doing this work by photography, though
expert photographers pronounced it im
practicable, fn fact impossible. To me it
was an original idea, though I believe rot
a new one, but not in practical "use.
Traced copies were prepared on common
tracing paper in very black India ink, and
from these sharp negatives by sun print
ing were obtained, and from these nega
tives copies were multiplied by exposure
to the pun iu frames made for the pur
pose. The several sections, properly toned,
were pa-ted together in their order, and
formed the general mjp, or such portions
of it as were desired; it being the policy,
as a matter of prudence against capture,
to furnish no one but the commauding
general and corps commanders with the
entire map of a given region. Albert II.

A Hawaiian Election.
The election season is a time of the
greatest excitement among the natives.
Each of the principal uistricts lias its rep
resentatives in legislature; and wher the
decisive day approaches the Kanakas cme
tearing in to the polls from miles around,
with loose rein and jangling spurs and
flower girlanded horses. Processions are
formed with iropromtu brass bards, and
a general commotion prevails. Any na
tive may vote who has a knowledge of
reading and writing or who has never
served a term in prison. The different
parties are regaled beforehand on gin or
on coffee and doughnuts, according to
their political platform; and a victory is
celebrated by a grand luau, with attend
ant ceremonies. They are a warm hearted
and childlike people, and their character
istics are an interesting study. Berths
