According to Homer, the burning of the dead was n common practice among the Creeks long before the Trojan war. hut tlie earliest record of It Is among tlie Scythians, who inhabited tlie vast re gion known under tlie name of Tar tary. Slender accounts handed down concerning the manners of some of the ancient natives of Hindustan also a I* lude to the custom. The idea of puri fication by fire was In all ages univer sal, and with good reason. Some be lieved that tlie body Wna unclean after the departure of the soul, and It was therefore doomed necessary that It should l*o purified by fire.

Automatic flogging machines are In use among the military force* of sev eral European untlona. For many years the whipping was always done hy soldiers under the cotnniaud of an officer, aud the punishment varied, ac cording to tho personal relations sub sisting between the aoldlcr nnU his vie tiin.

The machhie la automatic in action, and an soon ns the culprit Is fastened In position a spring Is tightened or loosened to gauge tho exact force of the blow. A pointer is moved over a dial to tho requisite number of strokes and the mechunlain Is started. With perfect regularity tho victim's back Is scourged by the throngs, tho handle of tho whip being moved by a screw device after each stroke so that the lash does not fall on the same spot throughout the punishment. Each Mow Is of uniform severity, aud as soon aw tlie required number hun been given tho machine comes to a rest, and the offender Is released, with tho nssurance that the exact pun ishment ordered hss l>een meted out. to him.— Ifnrper’H Weekly. The Lavt of th® Ruff®. In 1702 tho rage for ruffs, such ns are seen on many monumental efllglos, be gan to decline. A writer In the Lou don Chronicle of thut year says of gen tlemen’s dress, "Their cuffs entirely cover their wrists, and only tho edges of their rutiles ace to Is* seen.” It Is said that u distaste for ruffs wns llrst created so far back as 1013, when a woman named Turner wore them on her trial for the murder by poison of Sir Thomas Overbury. The French revolution of 17KP much Influenced ItrlttsFi fashion, and tho picturesque cocked hat and rutiles then gave way generally to round hats and sinnll cuffs. The period of their Unal disuse eaurutt be easily determined, as men of old fashioned or eccentric haFdts have worn ruffled shirt fronts within quite recent memory similar to fhoso which, according to I’lanche’s "His tory of Rrltlsh Costume," originated In tho seventeenth century.
