slanting sunshine threw deep purple shadows over the Cornell road.

" The air of these last days is electric with delightful tidings," said Miss
Willard in her remarkable address before the woman's National Council. " In
New York City such leaders as Mary Putnam Jacob! and Mrs. Agnew have
rallied around Dr. Emma Kempin, the learned lawyer from Lausanne, and

ENTRANCE TO R1VERV1EW CEMETERY.
Riverview cemetery, to the entrance of which we give space this week, is
one of the most commanding and gracefully beautiful homes for the dead to
be found in the United States. It is as though nature, in loving anticipation
of the marvelous growth of Ponland, had planned it, in the day when llie
earth was young, for the special purpose to which it is now dedkatrd. To
the right of the entrance, as shown in the illustration, is a handsome and sub
stantial lodge, surrounded on all sides with shrubliery and flowers. The
ground, which It level at the entrance, rises almiplly on the left, fkinked by
banks of flowers and topped by graceful trees, both evergreen and deciduous.
1 he alternately undulating, steep and level grounds, the well kept drives and
handsome monuments which grace the city of the dead are all in harmony
with the picturesque beauty of the entrance, which invites tlie stranger to a
ramble within its gates, and offers solace to many a bereaved mourner who
has buried from human tight the mortal remains of loved ones who have
paid nature'! final debt and entered the realms of the unknown.
