of a half opened flower contained over
five grains of white arsenic, not only suf
ficient to cause death bad it been swal
lowed, but so largely in excess of a fatal
dose, that the intent of tho person who
prepared the flowers would have been
defeated by an emetic. The original
amount of arsenio was greater than that

Cmtly Chinese Dead Felti.
Great indeed are the expenses entailed
on tbe living by the dead. Ia no land
can the loss of a kinsman be more seri
ously fult. To begin with, there are
heavy funeral expenses. The body must
be dressed in fino new clothes, and
another good suit must bo burnt, as also
his boots and shoes, most of his ward
robe, Lis bed and beddicg. and tli
things most essential to his comfort when
living, for ho is supposed o require all
these in the unseen world; and though
paper representations are nscfni later,
tbe real articles are needed for the orig
nal outfit. Then a handsome coffin
essential, and tbe priests mnst be largely
paid for funeral services at the bouse of
tho-deceascd, and again for their services
in ascertaining the lucky day for bnriul
while a professor of fung shni must
also be paid to choose the exact spot
where they may safely preparo the grave
so that tho ileml may be shielded Irom
the evil influences which proceed from
the north, and encompassed by all the
good which breathes from the south.
From the tenth to the seventeenth day
after death tho priests, whether Taolis
or Buddhist, hold services in the house
to protect the living from tbe inroad
of hosts of spirits who are supposed
crowd in, in the wake of their
now friend, and as all relatives
and friends of the family must be outer
tamed as well as the priests, this is an
other heavy item of-expense Iu short,
many families are often permanently im
poverished by the drain,, to which they
are thus subjected, and which, in the
form of masses for the departed and
offerings at his grave or before his
tablet, are certain to recnr again and
again, lo omit them would be to incur
the anger of the spiteful dead, who are
now in a position to avenge themselves
on tne living by inflicting all manner o
sickness and suffering. Besides, if tho
priests know that there is any possibility'
of extracting money from tbe family by
playing on their feelings, they pretend
to have bad revelations from the spirit
world showing the unfortunate dead to
be tortured ul purgatory, and that the
only moans by which he can be extri
cated is by a fresh course of costly ser
vices in the bouBe. The price to be paid
for those is fixed at the bfgaest sum
whioh they judge it possible te extraot
Buy $101U, and, though the family may
remonstrate and ondeavor to mako a bet
ier bargain, it generally ends iu their
raising every possible coin, and even sell
ing their jewels to procure tbe necessary
sum which shall free their dead from
suffering and alsosocnre bis protection
and good will. Tlie sums thus expended
in connection with the worship of the
lead are almost incredible. I heard a
oilculation once made by one well en
tilled to know what bo spoke of, to the
efijet that fully S30,000,OUO is annually
expended in China at tho three great
festivals in honor of the deed; whilo, in
addition to the abovo, by calculating the
average expenditure of each family at
$1.50 a year, be computed that fully
$150,000,000 is annually spent in quiet-
ng the spirits.

They were at work clearing a ay ihe
thick underbrush in advance, of tlie en

and called on the others to "look at tho

a pleasant sight, and most of tho spec
tators were horrified. After holding it a
few minutes for general inspection, be
suddonly swung the snako ovor his bend

Bvnyan Not a Gipsy. "Was Bunyau
gipsy?" is a controversy that seems
about to riso in the Daily News, and bis
called forth a letter from Mr. Thomas
Banyan, chief warder of tho Tower of
London, full of tho most appalling
erudition on the subject. Tho Bunyans

families of lioxburghsuiro, and, though
they did not come over with tho con
queror, they came ovor very soon after
him. The original isunyan, whose name
was perhaps Bnuyano, was an Italian
mason who came over and helped to
build Melroso abbey iu 1130; bo "settled
near Melrose, and Melrose is full of

say that tho younger sons no doubt wont

Tub Ejwlisk SncuiE Law. Among
tho acts passed at the recent session of
tho English parliament was one repeal-
,ng tho old law with reg.ird to suicides,
nder which all the goods and effects of
thfc'deceusod were forfeited to tho crown.
With such severity did the common law
regard the suicide that bis property was
not only lost to bim, but formerly an ig
nominous burial followed tho crime, and
u was interred in tho highway at the in
tersection of the crossroads, with a stake
riven trough bis bod v. All the legal
penalties once attaching to the act are
new formerly repealed. In point of fact
the penalties had been eluded for many
years by the verdict of "temporary in
sanity," which it had become customary
for the coroner's jury to return in such
ases, tbe law not applying wucro the

Next morning Mr. Fiolayton had to start

that the cause of bit present nuoaainesa was

Mr. Finlaysun did not appear to regard tlie
home coming nf hit wifo on thlt occasion with
unmixed aatiaf action.
The morning t pott did not arrivo until after
lie had lull, anu consequently .Mrs. rinlayton
assumed the wifely function of opening her
husband's letters. It teemed as though thero
was nothing in the correspondence to satisfy
the uneasy curiosity which prompted her to
examine every letter with increased attention
Uut when the came to tho lait ot the batch a
blue, oflicial-lookiug envelope, which she bad
put aside at eminently uninteresting she nas

tust a pair or neld-irlastet bearing the name
and address of Mr. liuiaTson, bad beon found
in a public, conveyance tho day before, and
wmud be restored on payment oi a small per
centago upon tho declared value.
What struck Mrs, 1- inlavaon as stranco upon
reading this intimation was that bor husband's
field glasses stood at the present moment on
tho mantelshelf in bis dressiug-room. Hhe bad
by chaneo noticed them just before, but to
make tare she immediately went up stairs to
satisfy herself upon tho point. Tho classes
were beyond a doubt in their accustomed place.

out of the caso, insido which wat glued one of
ber busbaud'a visiting cards, inscribed with his
name and address. She knew thev were tlie
only glassea he possessed, and consequently
tliey must bo tlio lileuticat ones referred to in
the communication from tho police.
A lew moments' roiiectinn suggested the
probablo explanation of wh.it had happened
with regard to them. Kvideutly they had been
claimed at the Lost Property oflice after tho
police bad dispatched to her husband a formal
utlmation of their recovery. Tho serious
question was, what bad bor husband wanted to
take the ulasset to Liverpool for, and whv hail
lie mode no mention or ii is singular good luck
in recovering a valuable article left iu the cub?
The obvious ausnur seemed to bo that bo had
not gone to Liverpool at all, but had attended
somo race meeting, under the pretence of being
away on business.

tho bottom. For her morning drivo sho went
to Scotland yard, whore sho oht-tinoil a con
tiruiutiou of her theory us to what had taken
ilaco concerning tho classes. Thev were
brought in early in tho morning by tho driver
nf a hansom cab, who bad just taken a faro to
King s Cross station to catch the special train
for Uoueaster races. The owner's name and
address being found inside tlie caso, au oilli-ial
notice was sent off according to custom; but
later in the ilay a but, apparently a clerk, came
who said that Mr. Finluvson bad telegraphed
to him to inquire for the glosses at HcotlHinl
yard, and, if necessary, to pay tho tinder's fee.
As the application wot evidently buna lido, tho
glasses wero given up.
.Mrs. l-iuluyson did not know whether to be

satisfaction in finding her surmises wero cor
