Joaquln Miller , the poet of the Sierras , haa done many things to mark him as a man o ( rare eccentricity , and as a last crowning nt of his strange career he has perfecte i all the arrangements for his own funeral and the Incineration of his mortal remains when hla soul shall have escaped to the great beyond. His last rites will be as strange his life. If his wishes are carried out , relatrs the San Francisco Chronicle , his remains will be burned upon a funeral pyre of his own build ing. ing.Far Far up on the top of a sterile eminence In the hills back of Frultvale the quaint i an B of letters has bulldcd his bier. It Ib a solid . mass of masonry , covering a space ton by ten feet and standing eight feet high. It Is . composed of 620 hugh granite boulders , set i In solid cement and laid with skilled hande In a manner calculated to endure for Jen- . turles. The queer structure Is approached . by three immense steps laid across the en tire west frontage and of sufficient height to _ permit bearers to place a body on the tor - of the heap. | The big masonry pile has been designed _ with great care. The upper surface Is hol lowed out to a depth of two feet , In the shape of a coffin. When the end of all things _ comes this space will be filled with wood t and the body of the poet will be placed OB top ot It all. The structure hna been bull ) so that a good draft will fan the blaze intc 0 . flames when the torch Is applied and make ' the cremation of the body a doubly assured ( fact. The ashes of the poet will mingle w.tt the ashes of the fagots , to bo scattered tc ' the thirty-two points ot the compass by the winds that play about "Tho Heights. " * This Is the end of the poet of the Sierras , as he has designed It himself. The quainf funeral pyre will be unmarked with any in scription to tell the story of the strange end " of this strange man. Six feet to the uortl of the masonry tomb lies n great browr * boulder weighing probably two tons. Th ( euifaco has been smoothed off and upon It ! face in large white letters has been care- v fully prltitfcd this inscription. "To the Un known. " This la the only epitaph that will grace the sacred spot. If the eccentric writer has any definite knowledge as to who will carry his body uj 1 the tortuous pathway from his queer rcsl' ilence to the top of the eminence when stands the tomb , who will arrange the faggots < gets and who will apply the torch , he doet not say much about It. He dismisses tbi matter very briefly when questioned on thi subject. "It Is my idea of the way to bo dlsposei of , " ho says. "I shall be cremated hero litho the surroundings I love when life Is over I want no burial. I ovn thc.se hundred acres , and why should I be buried out o them ? There , on that eminence , I nhal abide forever and shall make no pretene at keeping my name and stoy where it cai l always be seen. In fact , nothing will b written there but the words 'To the Un < .j known. ' It Is all my own idea. I flrml ; . believe In cremation. " j. 1 The aged mother of the poet , who llvci 1 alone on the sldo of another hill , and th i eeveral Immediate neighbors of the man o letters regard the rude funeral pyre as ai object of rnre curiosity. At the same tlm they look upon , it as a piece ot foolishness The neighbors say that Miller talked ot th project for many months before he starlet to carry out the Idea. Upon his return fron ' " | the Klondike he engaged the assistance o " j some workmen and the bouldera utilized li the construction of the tomb were collectei ' I from the surrounding hillsides and move < on low carts with the aid of horses. Man ; weeks were employed In the work , which 1 now finally completed. Joaquln Miller re cards the masonry pile as his greatest am final triumph.

It contains nn unusually In teresting budget of Information. Under the head of "Tho Year In General" President Schurman eajs of 1897-98 : "It Is within safe bounds to say that the year has been the most prosperous and healthful and In very many wavs the most memorable In the history of the university. Not only has the attendance been larger than over before , but , owing to the great advance made In standards of admission recent > cars in the sion to nearly aU courses , a striking Im provement has been wrought , and Is now markedly visible In the scholarship of this augmented body of students. And whllo the Intellectual life of the university runs so high the year has witnessed a hitherto un paralleled expansion of Its material re sources. Apart from the completion of the great hydraulic laboratory and dam at Trip hammer Fails , the enlargement of Sago finished nnd the chapel , now practically , addition to Morse hall , which Is already egun , all of which have been charges on ho existing resources of the university reasury , the records of the vear are 11- UBtrated by three splendid benefactions. The mansion of the late chairman of the oard was conveyed by his eons , Dean Sago nd Wlltam. H. Sage , to the university as memorial to their father , to bo used as n InfUmarv. And they not only fitted It p and equipped it for that purpose , but or Its perpetual maintenance they presented vlth It an endowment of $100,000. The state f Now York , following the precedent ot ho legislation establishing nt Cornell the tate Veterinary college , established this year the New York state college of For estry , which , like the veterinary college , vlll bo maintained by the state and ad ministered by Cornell university. The aboratory of this college will be a demon- tratlon area of 30,000 acres of forest in the Adlrondacks , which the state purchases. But he most splendid gift of the year Is duo o the generosity of a new benefactor , whoso munificence has enabled the Board of Trus- ccs , without expending ono cent of their ncomo , to establish a great department which has long been needed to round out he educational work of the university , a epartment of medicine. And It Is the mbitlon of this generous benefactor to make the Cornell university medical col- ege , which has Just been organized , second o none In the world. It Is at once a high icnor and a signal mark ot public confidence hat Cornell university should have been elected , both by the state and by private ndlvlduals. as the object of such splendid icnefacttons and the orgn of such noble purposes. It Is a new lllusti itlon of the dlb- sovcry long ago made by shrewd business men like Cornell , Sage , M-G.u , and Slbley , hat in this university philanthropists may ind an unexcelled field for the Investment of funds In perpetual trust for the pleva- lon of the human rape. And the financial history of the university the splendid record of the administration of Its fdnds s happily one to"1nsplre 'confidence In the minds of prospective benefactors.

Ex- cluslvo of those attending the sunrmei schools ( COS ) and those attending the w Intel school in agriculture (93) ( ) , there were reg ularly enrolled 1,835 students. This Is th ( argcst attendance ever registered , exceed ing that even of 1893-94 , which was tht ast year of low entrance requirements foi ihe great majority or undergraduates ant of free tuition for all graduates. Consider ing the enormous advance , exponslvo an < ' extensive , which has been made in the en trance requirements annually since 1894 these figures are striking and certainly verj encouraging evidence of the hold which th ( university has obtained upon the country. In speaking ot the students Presldeni Schurman makes the Interesting statement that the ago of freshmen at entrance haf been falling continuously for three years although the standard of requirements foi admission was at the same time continu ously rising. The "median age" of Cornel freshmen was 19 years and 11 months It 1895-96 , 19 years and 8 months in 1890-9' and 19 > ears and 7 months in 1897-98.

Cornell Mm lu the AVnr. President Schurman relates the part played by Cornell men In the war. After detailing the mass meetings and other signs of Interest In the student body before -war was declared , he says : "Then followed the heal and burden of actual hostilities. How largo a share Cor- ncllians played In the war cannot at once be known In Its entirety. Certain It Is that students and alumni of this university served In the United States navy , In tin staff , In the line , In the engineer corps arid In the naval inllltta ; that they held commis sions as officers of regulars In the United States army , in which recent alumni had been Boning for some years and Inwhich they fell at Santiago ; that they fought and some , alas ! fell at Quasimas with the Rough Riders , and before Santiago In the Seventy- first Now York volunteers , where Clifton Beckwlth Brown of Cleveland , O. , a mem ber of the class of 1900 , was killed by | i Spanish bullet upon the hill of San Juan ; that they were among the first to land upon thq soil of 'Porto ' Rico and raise the Amer ican flag over the first cliy caplured ; and that al Manila , In the far Philippines , Cor- nelllans shired In Dowey's naval victory , and again Corndllans , in the Utah battery , helped to bear the brunt of the savage night attack of the Spaniards when land fighting there ftogan and , In the Astor bat tery , the orunt of the last land fighting of the war , when Manila Itself was taken. Not only did every New York regiment take to the front Its quota of Cornelllans , but this record shoivs they demonstrated once more the broadly national character of the constituency and services of this uni versity by enlisting with the troops of many I a state , even as far away as distant Utah. Nor were they more confined in the kind ot i service rendered , for they went to the front 1 as officers and as privates , as surgeons and as chaplains , as cavalrymen , as artlllerracn . as Infartrjmcn and as engineers. In every ' scene ot the drama of war , by flood nnd I field , In cost and wcsl , from first to last , they ha\o done heroic service and when their full roll and record can foe made out It may fitly hang In the place ( if honor on the 1 walls of the American history se'nlnary | room , in the university lib 'ary , an ImpreiiB- ; ivo reminder that Cornell men not only help to write but that tiny help to make American history.

' "Such is the ideal of a medical depart ment for Cornell university , considered from the point of view of the curriculum. To complete the Ideal It Is only necessary to add that the department bo a real part of the university , under the same government and control as other departments , nnd like them wholly Independent ( for salaries , etc ) of receipts from tuition. "Thanks to the generosity and wisdom of Colonel Oliver H. l'a > no this ideal is nn actuality. All the advantages of Cornell university , rural and urban , will bo com bined for the fortunate student of the science of medicine. The great hospitals of Now York City , with which an unusually large proportion of the faculty are connected In the capacity ot surgeons or phjslclans , maki It Imperative that the last two jears of tht course should be taken by all students of the college In that city , where the oppor tunities of clinical instruction are literally unsurpassed. The faculty of the Cornell University .Medical college Is entitled to utilize for teaching purposes the clinical material of the Bellevue , City , Maternity , Gouverneurs , Harlem , Almshouse , Work house , Incurables , Randall's Island and Fordham hospitals , besides many other hos pitals and dispensaries in the city upon whoso visiting staffs the medical faculty Is I represented. On the other hand in the great scientific laboratories already existing on the university campus at Ithaca arc" op portunities of Instruction in the sciences underlying the profession of mediclno and embraced in the first two years of the curriculum , which are not surpassed In this country , it indeed they are anywhere equalled. A site for tlio permanent homo of the Medical college has been purchased at a cost of $150,000. It comprises the entire First avenue front of the block lying between Twenty-seventh and Twenty-eighth streets , a space of 100x200 feet. "Tho cost of the new building will undoubtedly , " says Presi dent Schurman , "be three or four times the cost of the site. " Other topics discussed are the Sage Col lege far Women and the Library , which "now posscses 211,278 volumes ami 35,000 pamphlets , of which 13,816 volumes and 1- 600 pumphlets were added" during 1897-98. The reconstruction of Sage chapel , by which Its seating capacity has been doubled , Is de scribed at length , as Is also the memorial apse , 31x16 feet , which has been added to the Sage chapel to be a resting place for the remains of Henry W. Sage and his wife and as a memorial to Mr. Sage. There Is also full description of the Cornell Infirmary , plven to the university by Dean Sage and William H. Sage , with an endowment of $100,000 , and of its organization and admin istration. There still remains a description of a great Chemical building in process of erection alongside and supplementary to Morse hall , which Itself was only ten years ago the most complete chemical laboratory In existence. There Is also a section on halls ot residence , dining halls , club houses , etc. , a whole system of these halls continu ing to be the object dearest to the heart of the present president of Cornell university.

" It seems that the mistaken idea was abroad that such gifts wore not desired. The report closes with ft section on the the College of Agriculture , was $043,050.

On this large portion of Cornell's capital not more than 6 per cent can be expected whe , In a few years It falls due and has to bo reinvested. President Schurman therefore rightly calls for more gifts , and points out that "every benefactor of Cornell university has felt that his Investment here was it ( , oed one , paying in the best sense of thn teim , as the fund has been well managed and Its fruit has been the education and ele vation ot the race.

He wants hid name known , not to millions , but to five or six students of the Latin datlvo case. Ho does not make money , because , like Louis Agofislz , he hasn't time.

The Boston Saturday Gazette comments on the rule a follows : "Collecting money In our public schools is wrong , slncj , nmrng other evils , it brings unnecessary humiliation on children whoso parents are lee poor to contribute their hard- earned money , and the school committee is light In opposing It. whether the object bo the raising of a statue to Lafayette or rala- ing money for Mayor Qulncy's rauslc hall concert. In the matter of children and pennies It Is sweeter to give than to take. " * Focr CUMC from lint ana. NEW YOUK , Oct. 31.
