He sent a letter to Police Commis

children slept under the stars in
their birthday dress.
There were over 5000 who sought
relief at the William H. Seward
Park, at East Broadway and Jeffer
son streets. Only the benches at
Battery . Park were overcrowded.
Few sought comfoit on the grass.
The permission appealed mighti
ly to dwellers along the Norton
River. In De Witt Clinton Park
early in the evening were at' least
4000 persons, most of them women
and children. A large number of
them had made arrangements to
spend the night out of doors and
had brought pillows and blankets.
Coverings were unanimously voted
to be unueccessary.
On the bank sloping down the
river from Riverside Drive . space
was at a premium in the early eve
ning. , There was a breeze off the
river, and weather conditions were
quite comfortable It was not - ob
servable that many intended to
sjend the, night there, the bank be
ing too steep in most places to in
sure tranquil rest. Nevertheless in
the late evening the bank was quite
as crowded as earlier.
Those who went into Central
Park to keep cool were surprised
when the police failed to turn them
out at mignigbt. They hadn't yet
heard of the new order. Many of
them, upon learning that they mif Vit
stay there all night if they chose
went home and got pillows. !
-Through the side streets leading to
the pars entrances could .be seen
many Bohemians and Italians from
the East Side making for the park
with pillows .tucked; under their
arms.,, ' .
In some spots whole families were
stretched out on the grass side by
side. The favorite snota seem to
be places wherethere was an incline
or embankment. Many who are
nightly , homeless and ' generally
sleep-in areas and on- doorsteps,
went into the park when the police
found them in their usual haunts
and told them of the new order.

applauded. He paid his comph

as they stood in solid phalanx on
he sea, wall and later surrounded
in profound silence the crape-draped
tomb, the trembling words of
praise and supplication of the black
robed chaplain before the bier, on
the threshold of the vault, the de
posit of the body, the musket fire
in volleys and the sounding of taps,
all these were in keeping with the
reverend memory to which honor
was done. The people of Indian
apolis added their presence to the
quiet demonstration, surrounding
the cordon of the naval personnel
with bared heads and in respectful
silence. The only words that were
uttered during the entire transfer
from ship to shore were the prayer
of the chaplain just before the body
was placed in the tomb.
The work today consisted of the
removal of the body from the Brook
lyn to the naval tug Standish, and
from that to a float moored to the
shore, where stalwart jackies placed
it in a hearse which was escorted
by an imposing cortege of marines,
jackies and midshipmen, in which

batteries replied, and as they did
so the naval tug Standish, in com
mand of Lieutenant Wiley, cast off
and p-oceed to the Brooklyn, lying
five miles off. The saluting batter
ies were kept busy as the French
cruiser followed the Brooklyn's
shore salute with a similar one, the

French cruiser then saluted Rear

lhe Standish came along side
and made fast to the Brooklyn
shortly bf fore 9 o'clock. The body
of the dead admiral was hoisted
from its position on the half . deck
by a boat crane and carried to the
starboard side,, where another crane
lowered it to the after deck of the
tug. Sixteen jackies went over the
side of the Brooklyn aud placed the
coma on a catafalque, after which
it was covered by the flag of Gecer

the Union flag. Then the jackies
stood at attention in a square
around the bier.

One Dollar Saved Represents Ten..
The average man does not save to exceed
ten per cent, of his earnings. He must spend
nine dollars in living expenses for every
dollar saved. That being the case he can
not be too careful about unnecessary ex
penses Very often a few cents properly in
vested, like buying seeds for la is garden, will
save several dollars outlay later on. It is
the same in buying Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It costs
but a few cents, and a bottle of it in thehou:"
often saves a doctor's bill of several dollaiu.
