MORAVIAN VIEW OF DEATH. A nenntlfol nntl Imiircnilvc Cimtom. of the MoriivlmiH. 1 Clifford Howard contributes to the , Ladles' Home Journal nn interesting. article upon the Moravians of Bethle hem, Pa., and their religious customs: "Upon the death of one of the con gregation," he writes, "the event is an nounced, not by the monotonous. mournful tolling of the bell, nut by the deep-breathing, melodious j music of trombones, played in the open ! belfry steeple of the church by the ' trombone choir; and as the deep, sweet notes of the familiar hymn are homo to the people below they reverently 1 drop their work to listen. 'Ilarkl' they , whisper, 'the horns are blowing; some one has gone home!' 'Gone home!' perhaps nothing more beautifully ex emplifies the perfect, unquestioning faith of these devout people than that expressive utterance, the sincerity of vthich is ever demonstrated by the lack of mourning at the passing away of a member of the household, however dearly beloved; so true and heartfelt is tho Moravian belief that death is but the entrance to a brighter happier home. The trombones are also used at the touching funeral services held at the grave; and amid their sad, yet in spiring, strains the departed one is laid to his eternal rest. On all occasions, whether of death or joy, the tiombones lend their sweet solemnity in fitting breath. From the steeple they herald the festival day of each of the choirs, and in all opeoi-air services their mel lifluous tones are ever present." THE RAT-CATCHER OF PARIS. An OfHcinl Who Hns Cnnclit Over , 1,000,(100 Hats In IIIm Time. ; The French are essentially a prac tical people. They leave little to chance, and this is probably why they ere so successful in business, says the ' Sketch. Paris boasts of an official rat catcher, a certain M. Henri Dayve, wh 1 is, in his way, quite a character. He has served the town in his capacity of 1 chief rat executioner for 35 yeaTs, nra.1 he tells with pride that during that time he has caught, unaided by the use of a trap, over 1,000,000 rats with his own hands. He is extremely proud of his profession, and on his card is em- ' blazoned a crest formed by two rats rampant. 1 Nowadays M. Dayvo's labors are com paratively uninteresting, but during the siege the official rat-catcher made a small fortune, for not only the com- ' inon folk but the purveyors of the great restaurants were onlv too glad to pay 20 cents each for a well-fed rodent. In deed, in time a plump rat ran up to 1 as much as CO cents. M. Dayve and Ms assistants for his post is by no means a sinecur; searched out their victims in the famous sewers. M. Dayve often turns an honest nnnv bv sellinc- ; live rats to those who delight in what may be styled a rat battue, for there , is verv llttIe sPrt. about rat-catching I conducted on the prepared rodent plan. An amateur will often pay as much as ' 513 for 100 live nUs ' J I . ! COURSING COYOTES. TJie;- Gaie the Diirii All the ItnnThcy "Vnntc-a. "Coursing used to be one of our great sports in Neada in Hush times," said otes, and they can givo a dog the race of his life. There was another ndvnn- tr.ge. We could use one coyote until he got so old and rheumatic that hi j couldn't run and then make a rug of , his hide. It was this way: "Wo would catch a good, big covote In a box trap, take him out on Hie alkali desert, which was as smooth as a table lor 20 miles in every direction, turn him loose and sick the dogs on him. It didn't take long for the coyote to real ize that his chances of getting nway were very small unless he could find a hole, and ho had sense enough to know that holes were scarce in the des ert. Then be would recollect the good, safe hole he had just left and commence circling toward it. All we had to do was tosit down and wutch tho nice for nboufa half nn hour, till the coyote completed the circle and ran back to the box. Then we closed it, carried him back to town and kept him for another race the next week," AT THE FAIR GROUNDS. Lnrgo Number of Flno Ilorsen HclllB Worked Out Dully. Ono of the most interesting spots in tho city, und also ono of tho most en joyable to the lover of a fino horse, Is the Fair Ground stables at tho upper cud of Front street. About thirty speedy trotters and pacers tiro quarter ed there, in charge of competent at tendants, and are ,flvon their work und exercise on the track dally. Many of tho animals aro what is known as "green," having never received a mark, but there is much good material in the, bunch and somo surprises are looked for when tho green ones got out for business. Beginning at the lower end of the stables a trip of inspection was made by a Leader reporter yesterduy. First comes, in consecutive order, tho "string" of William Roeser, Jr., in charge of C W. Jackson. There is Russellwootl, the 5-year-old bay trotter, with a mark of 2:10Jf. showing up in tine condition. Carrie H., tho well known six-year-old bay trottor, with a record of 2:13Jf, keeps him company. The third horse of tho string Is Brown Bourbon, a 3-year-old green one ex pected to show fast speed. Next above is thu string of Harry Mitchell, of Charleston, W. Vu., con taining some good material. Edith R., 11 brown mare by Pancost. owned by Fred Israel, of this city, and Puddin, a roan pacer owned by Clint Clark, givo promise of showing up well. Glendurfe", a :i year-old green colt owned by Mitchell and Curry is also a coming trotter. Lancewood, r. brown stallion owned by Liveryman Wlblc, completes this string. In charge of C. F. McKlnney are Maggie West, pacer, 2:29, owned by M. McCooch, of Sistersville; BUlie, a 4-vear-old gray pacer with no mark, owned by Dan Kelly; Annie, a sorrel mure owned by McMann, of Sisters ville, a good green one; a black pacer owned by George Thompson, of Sisters ville, a gray pacer that has ucver started inn race, also owned by Thomp son; and Nancy W., a trotter with a record of 2:22n. Doc Vincent, .'of Catlettsburg, Ky., looks out for May Landers, a green trotter that will make her mark; Will Barton, a 4-year-old green pacer; Big Sandy, a 0-year-old bay with no mark; and a black roan mare without name or mark, that promises to provo a crackerJHck. Gallalena, Curry & Hol dren's 3-year-qld bay mare, is another green trotter from which much is ex pected. Dora C, a brown 8-year-old pacer, and Big York, the 2:20J veteran, in charge of Brad Brown, are in fine fettle. Over near the grand stand is the "grapevine string" in charge n! Deck Davis, composed as follows: Newport Jim, roan pacer, 2:34; Tony White, n roan pace: ; Dr. B . a black roan with no mark, but capable of doing a half in 114; Bonnie B , a good looking gray colt; Charlie S., by Ransomer; Dr. Johnson, by Murquelte, with no mark, but shows a lilCf clip for half n. mile; and Bertha R., also a trottor with no mark. With this string is quartered Rapid City, the well known running horse. Rich and poor alike suffer tho torture-) that come with thut terrible plague.
