SADDEST OF KITES.
Ifeitfral Servles Hrltf Over the Re v mains of Mm, KaiVhon at the Wbitr liOMSe. They Were of the Simplest Character, Mtl Lasted Only Jtartf fiinnte*. rir— ,_l_. Bsantlfnl Florat Offering* Faneral Train Immediately Starts $mt\ IniUMtpUi* WASHINGTON, Oct. 28.—Funeral serv ices over the remains of Mrs. Harrison previous to their removal to Indian apolis for interment, were held in the East room ef the White House at 1U s o'clock. They were brief and simple, in accordance with the wishes of the presi dent and family, often expressed, that there be no attempt at display. An hour before the sej Vices began the casket was brought down stairs from the rom in which Mr*. Harrison died and placed in the center of the room, directly uni^rr^ith tjve middle chande lier. The i dy lay with the head to 1 he South. At he other end of the casket stood an inuuctUe sago palm, v.hose branches venched nearly to the exiling of the m*$rinc*nt npartiuent. When J]je dccrs tliTgwu open to admit the first arrivals the sc. na was strikingly beautiful. The fcliandeliers cast a flixxl of mellow ligHt, the windows having been dark ened. The several mantlepieces were bankeu with ferns, aud flanked at each end by u larger palm. Around the eankot were grouped the great wealth of floral offerings, through whieh frienda of Mrs. Harrison, present and absent, testified to their appreciation of her worth while living, and their sorrow at her death. Tney tilled all the *pace on 'each side of the casket almost to the windows on the east and tne door into the corridor on the west, connecting the apartment with the private portion of the house. At the head stood the cross presented by the Republican central committee, made of white chrysanthen wns. From the angle of the cross was suspended a wreath of yellow chryaan thenums, nnd u gainst the base rested another of red roses and palms. Opposite, at the foot, was a massive crown, toe gift of tb« New York City chapter of the Daughters of the Revolution. It was composed of Chrysauthenuius and white roses and rested upon a base of violets. Broad streamers of white silk bore on their ends the insignia of the order and the name of the chapter. On the head of the casket rested a wreath, prepared at the White House conservatory by direction of the presi dent. It was made of white roses and orchids, of which Mrs. Harrison was very fond. Another wreath of carna tionn and chrysanthcuums, also Mrs. Harrison's favorite*, will be placed upon jh» casket at Indianapolis. It is practically impossible to give more than a mention of the more note worthy of the emblems that surrounded the casket Tlmy comprised every known device appropriate for suck an occasion, and the profusion was un equalled in the experience of all who witnessed it. After the services the flowers, «r as many of them as could be carried in two large wagons, were taken to the main station and placed with the casket in the observation car of the funeral train. It wanted a few minutes only of 10 o'clock when ex-Secretary Blaine, fol lowing close behind Mrs. Blaine and Miss Alice Blaine, entered the White Home. It was his first visit since just before that mt-moriai day when he sent Ms resignation as secretary of state to the president. The Blainus were seated in the second row of seats, just behind the row reserved for the supreme court. Singly and in groaps of two and three, the people came to pay their last tribute to the first lady of the land. There were many persons of distinction there, and many who had no other claim on the 'dead wem tn than love for the remem brance of some kindly act done by her. The tall clock over the usher's desk in the public hay way, jnst ontside the East rocm. tolled out ten strokes, when the first sign of the beginning of the cermonial appeared. Down the long, carpeted private cor ridor came the honorary pallbearers in double file, each dressed in sdmber black. Vice President Morton and Secretary John W. Foster headed the line which was following them in the order named, Secretary Elkins and At torney General Miller, Postmaster Gen eral Wanamaker and Secretary Tracy, Secretary Noble and Secretary Rusk. They were ^assigned to seats in the first row, nearest to the catafalque. Ac the end and to one side of the private corri dor that enters the East room, is a broad stair case, and down this came the mourners. At the head was Presi dent Harrison, his official position for* gotton for the time being being by the assembled friends in the sympathy which went out from the hearts of all those present. Leaning on his arm wan Mrs. McKee, the tender aud loving daughter, whose devotion VJ ber mother £new no fatigue. *1 .jc face of the president was of a deathly pallor. Traces of mental ^offering were marked, Mr. V KusselT W. Harrison, supporting his wife, followed the father and sister. Then came the venerable parent of the feceased mistress of the White House, the Rev. Dr. Scott, escorting Mrs. John F. Parker, the niece of Mrs. Harrison. Mrs. J. McKee and Mrs. Harry S. Dim miek, the son-in-law and niece of the dead woman, Hon. J. V. L. Finley, of Baltimore, the cousin, and Lieutenant John F. Parker and Private Secretary Halford were the others com posing the family party. They came slowly down the long corridor, past the banked palms and flowers, past the great portraits of former presidents of the United States and entered the room of death. All rose to receive them. The mourners seated themselves to the south of the catafalque, where the palms and banks of flowers to a great extent shielded them from observation. Those present, barely 200 in number, were almost exclusively the official fam ily of the president and whose relations with the family put them on the footing of domestic friends. When the specta tors had resumed their seats in silence, Dr. Hamlin, the pastor of the Church of the Covenant, read the following passage of scripture: "In My Father's house there are many mansions." aud those selected passages which followed. This was followed by a brief prayer, and then the choir of St. Johns church sang "Abide With Me." This was fol lowed by reading of scripture by Dr. Bartlett. Then Dr. Hamlin offered prayer, some passages of which were as follows: We beseech Thee, our Father, that (J}0«e sjrickeii here may be able to take to themselves thin morning all thy gracious promise* of comfort, and all these assur ances of Thv won} that touch the heart and pierce tlie aoul. We pray tfmt they may look back over the delightful years— unbroken by a single iuslance to be re gretted—that have passed. We thank Thee, and pray that they may pause in the midst of their grief and thauk Thee for all the faith, for all the love, lor all the wifely and motherly devotion, for all the womanly affection, for all the forti tude in lox suTering, for all the fidelity to the higest duties o' life, that we have witnessed in this Thy servant and we pray that the example thus set may oe constantly before us, and lend others ia the same path that this dear frieml has trod. Then the pastor prayed that the uni versal sympathy manifested towards the stricken household might soothe the hearts that were smitten, and that the example of patient endurance of pain and sickness and triumphant death might not be lost upon this great nation that we love. A prayer for the general forgiveness of sins and the ^vent-diction closed this touching invocation. From their recessed concealment in an adjoin ing room the choir sang the first two stanftas of Cardinal Newman's beautiful hymn, which Mrs. Harrison so much admired, "Lead Kindl Light.*' It was just 10:40 o'clock when the services concluded. .IThey had lasted barely forty minutes. The funeral pro cession then proceeded to the Pennsyl vania railroad station, arriving there at 11:25 a. m., wliero a rgc but silently decorus crowd awaited them. The president's car was a combined parlor and diuing room car. The cabinet and othes distinguished attendants occupied a car which was divided into six drawing' rooms, arranged in suites. The whole train consisted of six vestibuled cars. The train left Washington at 11:40. one hour exactly after the closing of the services at the White House. A SAD 8PECTACLE K8TABLI8HED 1890. MADISON. SOUTH DAKOTA, FKIDAY OCTOBER 28. 1892. to* Wife and Daughter Inewye—-Five 8m«ll Children. MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 28.—A very sa4 spectacle was witnessed at the Central police station about midnight. An in sane man, his wife and grown up daugh ter, together with five small children, were brought to the lockup, where they spent the remainder of the night. The whole family walked into the residence of J. B. Whitney, at 1019 Queen avenue, where they lay down on the floor of the parlor. The police were notified of the strange action, and Sergeant Kennedy took them in charge. It seems that the family left their home on Blaisdell avenue some time ago, and for several days have been roaming about in the woods north of the city. The man, wife and grown up daughter are insane. The small children, of whom there are five, appear to be rational. They presented a most woe-begotten appearance, and all were nearly famished. Jackioa Will Challenge Corb«tt. NEW YORK, Oct. 28. -Peter Jackson, the well known colored pugilist, arrived in this city on the White Star liner Teutonic. In speaking of his plans to a reporter of the United Press he said he intended to challenge Jim Corbett at once, and would keep right after the Californian, for he owed him a match. He was told of the offer of the Coney Island Athletic club of a purse of $25,000 for a meeting between him and Corbett, but would not say as to his acceptance of it until after he had con sulted the Coney Island people himself. He said he had a good offer from the National club, oi London, a purse of $20,000, but he would fight wherever he was assured of fair play and the most monwv. lihpewlng'f Kpfdtmlc.

This apparent termination of the prolonged contro versy over the disposition of the fund causes general satisfaction in Irish circles. It is presumed that Mr. Harrington has the consent of Mrs. Parnell in this step, as agreement on her part would prob ably be necessary in behalf of the estate of Mr. Parnell. 1 Mtt Horrible Death.
