Baldwin Locomotives! TEE HAWAIIAN NEWS CO. A NEGRO CUSTOM. XiiJ Plaything and Medicine Botue on the Graves of Children. While stroll ing'.last Sunday a little way outside the city limits," near the head of Eighteenth street, I noticed two carriages filled with colored people entering an inclosure. I saw that it was a cemetery and followed. A stal wart negro took from one of the car riages a small coffin, and with the ceremony of a short prayer, it was de posited in the earth. Six or eigjht f rientb of the dead babe stood with tearful eyes during the few minutes occupied in filling the little grave: then they ie-entred the carriages ana drove away. Just before leaving a woman, whom I judged to be the be reaved mother, laid upon the mound . i m a t two or inrce lniants toys. Looking among the large number of graves of children, I observed this practice to be very general. Som were literally covered with playthings. There were nursing bottles, rattle box es, tin horses ana wagons, "Noah'i ark," sets of dishes, marbles, tops, china cups and saucers, slates, picture hooks in endless number and varietv. Many of them had apparently lain there for years, articles of a perishable nature having been almost destroyed by sun and storm. There were very few children's graves which did not have something of this kind upon them. Cn many of the larger graves were pretty vases, statuettes ana other articles suitable to more adult years. Upon inquiry I was told that this custom is almost universal among the colored people in the south. The sen timent that prompts it readily suggest itself, but it is not quite so easy to un derstand another feature which I no ticed. Upon fully half the small graves, lying or standing, partly Dur led in the earth, were medicine bot tles of every size and shape. Some were nearly full and all contained more or less of the medicine which had no doubt been used in the effort to ward off tho visit of death. The usual number of these on each grave was from one to three, but on one 1 counted eight The placing of these bottles is certainly a singular conceit and would seem to border on super stition. Just why they do it is not clear. . I was impelled by curiosity to inquire of two or three negroes about it, hut they seemed no better able to explain it than I was. One old woman who was loitering about the cemetery said in answer to my question: X Haul t MJi.1 j o v u J , llilsi , iiii dey allers does it When I was a chile I hbed down in ole Virginny, an it was jes' de same dar. I d no, but mebbe dey t'inks de medisan '11 he'v de chiTen arter deys buri-l, but j doirt see no good in it nohow." This is the nearest approach to at opinion I was able to get I was in clined to coincide in it, such as it was Washington Cor. Cleveland Leader. Mr. Doswell's Wedding. Back in the last century, tho follow ing circular, which is probably the queerest marriage announcement evei recorded, was current in Cumberland, England: 4MatthewDoswell, in Bothel Cum berland, intends to be married at Holm church, on the Thursday before Whitsuntide next, whenever thai may happen, and to return to Bothell to dine. "Mr. Reed gives a turkey, to be roast ed; Edward Clementson gives a fat lamb, to be roasted; William iuuoi rri rAa a hen. tn he. roasted t Josenh Gib son gives a pig, to be roasted ; William Hodgson gives a fat calf, to be roasted. "And m order that all this roast meat may be well basted, do you see, "Mary Pearson, Patty Hodg&on, Mary Bushby, Molly Fisher, Sarah Briscoe, and Betty Port-house, give each of them a pound o: butter, ine advertiser will provide everything else suitable for so festive an occasion.
