Arkon, O., Dec. 14. At a birth

were gathered in the socieiy's library
building. They were entertained by

flowing garnets, with high hats cov

The h t of Mi s Aurella Staigmier

who were the worse burned of the
victims of the birthday party at the
Buchtel College, Saturday night, did
early this morning. Both were burned
almost beyond recognition. Mis
Stevens was one of the most beautiful
and most popular students in the col
lege. Not a spot on her body except
th soles of her feet escaped the fire,
and when she was found in her room
after the mod rush of the burning
girls from the fourth story, she sfod
speechless, utterly destitme of cloth
ing, wi'h hands extended, blackene i
and blistered, and not until spoken
to did she recover from her dazed con
dition. The parents of Miss Steigmeyer
arrived this morning an hour after
her death. Brief service was held iu
the college chapel this afternoon and
the remains were taken to Attica to
night, accompanied by the pareuts
and four members of the freshmen
class. May Baker of Johnson's
Creek, N. Y., and Aureiia
Wrick of Storm Lake, Io., are
the most seriously injured of the su r
viving members of the party, but
physicians s.iy there is no immediate
danger. The fall term of the coKege
ends next Thursday, but recitations
will bs abandoned, and many young
ladies are packing their trunks and
hurrying from the city to get away
from the scene of horror. The college

A very desirable and sensible fash

godparents to give a teaspoon, and to
announce the intention of repeatiug
tbe gift on eacb anniversary until a
dozen is complete, then begin to give
some other kfnd of spoon. By carry

launched in society, eugaged and
married she will have quite' a store
of silver, endeared by association.
If tbe child is a boy after the first
gift of a piece of silver the anniver

ed. Ward and his friends persuaded
the family ot the injured young man
to permit them to call in, in consulta

of Garfield's physicians. Some weeks
after the injury an operation was per
formed, which gave relief to the
pitient, and alievia?ed the severity of
his suffering, but too late to save ins
life. That fact will undoubtedly
form an ititeresting feature of the de
fense, the claim being that if that
operation hnd been performed earlier
the life of the victim might have ben

Senator Blackburn, Judge Wilson, of

the sincerity of the Herald's advocacy
of the election of Charles A. Dana to
the senate, and this reminded a vet
eran newspaper man of an incident of
the time ot the elder Bennett In 1867
the legislature of Kew York was re
pub'ican and had to elect a senator.
Mr, Benneit suggested the name of
Horace Greeley, and day after day
boomed his candidacy iu his own
peculiar manner. Io those days the
e litorial courtesie3 of modern times
were not known to New York editors.
There were no references to "esteemed
contemporaries" as now, but occasion
al horse whippings of editorial rivals
instead. The persistency with which
jr. Bennett advocated the election of
Greeley perplexed the editorial coun
cil, who three time3 a week were
called together to receive the old
gentleman's directions. At last
Dr. Wallis, the oldest member
of the editorial force, plucked up
courage to ask the question. "Mr.
Bennett,3' he said, "may I ask why
you support Mr. Greeley so strenu
ously for the senate ?" The old man
brought his revolving eye to bear
upon the doctor. The doctor did his
best to reciprocate by fastening his
single optic, glittering behind his
rrlaccoo on hie pViipt.

While the Chief was Kesist-

Dec. 16. A fight at Sitting Bub's
camp occurred about 6:45 yestei day
morning, an i for half an hour was of
the mst desperate character. Bull
had been informed of the com

he and his immediate followers were

Sittiug Bull started to run up the

once in the left shoulder and again in
the region of the heart. Bull's sou,
Crow Foot, was killed, together with
Black Bear, Catch Bird and from five
to seven others.
The body oi Sitting Bull was se

A French CJlrl'i Predicament.
A comical contretemps has just
taken place in one of the provincial
towns of France. Over twenty yeare
ago the wife of a prominent citizen
gave birth to a li tie girl who was
christened Camille, and whose birth,
according to French law, was duly
registered at the mayor's office. But
as Camiile is a name that ii given to
hoys as we'l as to girls in France,

ing the registration and set down ihe
infant as being a boy. Time parsed

Two young men who have known
each other nearly all their lives
boarded a Trumbell avenue car the

Each was busy with his own thoughts
and did not speak. Finally one of
the pair carefully put his hand in
the other's overcoat pocket ani drew

on the opposite side who had been

Smilaxnt Wedding or Reception.
t.'hh ago Herald.
Smi.'ax is not now called iuto re
quisition by first class florists at either
wedding or reception. They will use
cut flowers as much as possible. Fash
ionable people have a great liking for
cut flowers. They can get better
re ults by rising them than in any other
way. A great bunch of cut flowers
in an urn or a vase or a cut gla S3
bowl is much more eflective than the
made up piece. It is mo: e elegant.
Ferns are now a substitute fi.r smilax,
and ferns and cut flowers make a
lovely combination. In funeral de
signs ivy leaves and wheat are now
given the preference in place of flow
ers. Ivy is symbolical of time and
wheat of age. There are few designs
exhibited at funerals except in the
country where tbe fashion holds on
with a stronger grip Roses aud
hyacinths in large bunches are also
used at funerals in this city. They
are considered to be "real swell."
Vivid contrasts are made in the use of
ribbons. A bunch of pink roses will
be tied with a black ribbon and a
bunch of white roses with a lavender
coloied ribbon. The interior decora
tion of the coffin is ab dished alto
gether. It is a year since the fashion
changed. When wedding engage
mems are announced it is now custom
ary for friends of tbe prospective
bride to send buuche3 of fbwers tied
with a ribbon of the sime color.
Handle baskets and vases of flowers
are also fashionable in this connection.
A florist must be a certain extent in
iu the pottery business if he wants to
succeed in these times. The corsage
bouquet is no longer iu vogue at eve
ing and theatrical parties. In its
place has been adopted what is known
as the half round loose bunch tied
with ribbons to match the lady's
gloves. Ladies seldom attend a wed
ding or a reception this year without
using flowers iu their hair in place of
