Queer Burial Customs in Greece.
New York Sun: A correspondent
at Athoija gives an account of many
curious burial customs peculiar to
Greece which lately came under his
notice. A piece of linen as wido as tho
body and twice as long was doubled and
a bole largo enough lor tho head cut
out of it. In this the body was wrapped
and then dressed in new clothes, and
more especially now shoe?. Beneath
the head wa3 placed a piliow full of
lemon leaves. In the mouth was placo
a bunch, of violets, and around tho
pics a chaplct of llowers. Theso aro
used only fof the unmarried, and must
be white. Both head and feet aro tied
with bands made for the purpose, which
were unloosed at tho edge of tho grave,
when tho cofiin was to bo closed. A
small coin (a relio of tho fee to tho
ferryman) was placed in the palm of
the hand. At Athens a sou is dropped
into tho cofiin. The greatest attention
is given to this point. In removing
the body tho feet always go first. A
priest came on three successive days to
sprinkle the room, fumigate it and le
peat certain prayers, as for that period
after death it was supposed to bo
haunted. ' After burial women aro
hired to keep a light burning over the
grave until the body is supposed to bo
decomposed. To assist this, tho bottom
of modern Greek cofiin s is of lattice
work. Every Saturday tho poor of
Athens place on the graves of their
friends eatables of tho nort thoy used

TIIK SAD FATE OF A FOLICKMAN.
An officer stood lit the crosslns one day,
Who with answering i'iestlcm3 was tired,
When a beautiful maiden passing that way
TLe road to the "Jepo" inquired.
fhe weary policeman directed fcer etrelght
To the street throueh which ehe should po,
When an elder!y lady, who seemed to be late
For the train, wished to fird the ,1depce."
Then the man with his arrr9 full of crockery
Cups, saucere, pitchers, and teapot
Came up and inquired, with an anxious air,
The most direct route to the "depot."
The cflicer gave the directions to these,
Thongh he waa annoyed, it was clear;
Then a rustic approached him and said :
Is It far to the 'daypo' from here?"
A man in pursuit of a runaway pair
Came up, with the speed of a hippo
Grill wiefcia its flight through the ambient
Inquiring the way to the "dlppo."
The officer silently pointed the way ;
His mind was in sad tribulation,
For then cama an Englishman, asking : "I say,
Can you fell me the way to the station?''
The cfllrer'ij seen at the crossing no more,
For somethtnfc'B gone wrorg in his brain,
And his family has placed him, his mind to
la a home fcr the harmless iLsane.
To visit Lim often his old comrades go,
And he ceemb to find come consolation
In asking thtm : "day, is it depo, depoe,
Dlppo, daypo, depot, cr station ?"

Thero lives in New York, said a recont
importation from tho east, a newspa
per man who is a striking illustration
of what love-making through tho pa
pers may accomplish. Hu is now a
gray-bearded man cf leisure, but years
and years ago he was a struggling
young editorial writer on a western pa
per. Ho wrote with a good deak-of
earnestness on sentimental topics.
Having conceived an earnest, devoted,
absorbing love for a yonug lady. - and
knowing that the was greatly inter
ested in certain linos of work and
thought, ho managed to put his heart
iu his editorials for her benefit. I do
not mean that he did not writo for tho
public, but that he wrote for the pub
lic better because of tho warmth in Ids
heart toward tbo woman he loved.
At tho same time ho was carrying
forward an ideal character in a series
of sketches. Ho had pictured this
young lady so plainly that many rec
ognized hr as tho heroine of his ro
maneo. But so tonderl y, so delicately
was tho character handled that any one
might have felt llattored at all that was
said. In fact, tho lady herself was in
the habit of saying that sho was con
tent to bo regarded as tho character so
finely pictured. But in time, tho
heroine was carried toward tho hero of
tha story in a way to leave open tho
question of her regard, und there tho
sketches wero broken ofi". At this time

Ho told mo that ho had como to a
crisis in his affairs. Ho had carried
tho discussion in his editorials to &
point where ho was in danger of show

ideal who had it) spired all of his work
on that lino. lie could not tako tho
story of his sketches any furthor with
out hinting at a denouement that might
bo very ottensivo to the lady who had
boen kind enough to bo pleased with
his picturo of the ideal women. There
was only ono way out of tho trouble,
and that was to toll Iho object of nis
love hoiighly ho regarded her. Ho
did this in one of the most beautiful
letters that I havo any recollection of,
