THE TERRIBLE KNOIT.
The Dreadlul Punishment of a .Murderfi'
Mazof bad murdered a iiihu, a
woman and a little boy. .Before the
magistrate he made a full confession
of his guilt A determined attempt
was made by the'soldiers to mob him
while he was making his coufes-Jon,
but it ra repressed. He was re
served for a much more terrible pun
ishment than that accorded by ljnch
law. He was sentenced to 399 lasLes
with the knout, which meant to be
knouted to death, unless he poesed
He was 'marched out to punishment
in company with two forgers, all .St.
Petersburg -turning out to witness the
spectacle. This horrible show is thus
"Thejstake prepared for him ki& a
strong block of wood fixed in the
ground with three grooves at the top
and two riugs near the bottom; the
middle groove was for the neck, and
the two others for the armpits, the
rings below to look round the ankles;
about the stakes were laid co ir&e
skins, especially where the knout
master .trod,- upon which lay his
whips, marking-irons, pincers, etc.
An officer then read a paper to the
people, signifying that forgery upon
the Imperial bank being a capital
crime, and two of the prisoners con
victed of it were condemned to re
ceive eleven blows with the knout, to
have their nostrils pulled out, and be
banished for life to Siberia; the mur
derer of bo many persons to receive
399 blows, to be branded thiee
times in the face, have his nostrils
pulled out, and (if then alive) be ban
iBhed for life to the mines of Siberia.
"The executioner and his asihtantb
then stripped him, lied his hands
across, and led him to the post Af lei
fixing his ankles they bent his neck
and arms over it, and drew the rope
with which hia hands were" tied
through the ring on the opposite
sida, which seemed to stretch nil the
muscles of his back. He then retired
about four or five j ards from him.
and. taking up one of the knouts,
worked it with one of his hands to
give it proper elasticity. Walking
toward the criminal with four or five
steady steps, then taking a spring he
struck a perpendicular stroke with a
heavy, loud crack. The first stroke
cut from the right side of the bottom
of the neck to the left armpit The
effeot was visible in a moment, audby
the violence of his screams afforded
reason to suppose that the pain wa3
very great. The second was about
half an inch below the first, and so on
till twenty-five, when, changing the
whip, the operator erased the former
wound, striking from the left side to
the right, and afterward quite pernen
dioular. The strokes were given with 1
the greatest regularity. Between I
each a person might deliberately
count eight, the executioner always
walking slowly to and from the
"His cries were now so terrible that
some of the spectators -were oblinod '
to turn their backs aud put their i
fingers in their ears. All was quiet j

grew famt, and during the last 1UU he
After the last blow the assistants lifted
up the face by the hair, and the exo
eutioner struck "him forcibly three
times with an instrument that left the
initial of murderer, throwing each
time a handful of black dust into the
wound, after which, at two pulls he
tore the gristle of his nose, and loos
ened him from the block. The whole
lasted about three-quarters of an
hour, and it was generally thought
that he had -been dead some time;
however, he made a feeble attempt to
put on his coat, and recovered suffi
ciently to be able to make some repa
ration to society by working in the
Ben Butler's Nerve.
Butler would have made a duellist
of himself had lie been born in a
is.- state and at a time when the co
of honor held good. But bean-eat
ing Massachusetts never fights duels,
aad Butler's nerve has had to be ex
pended in other ways. A notable in
stance of- this occurred in 1856, when
Butler was a young practitioner at
Lowell The Buchanan campaign
was in full progress and a great meet
ing was being held in the largest hall
of the city. Buf us Choate, the great
lawyer, was addressing the meeting,
and his eloquence had thrown them
into the wildest enthusiasm, when a
jar was felt and a crash was heard.
The cry went -forth, "The floor is sink
ing." Every one turned pale and the
audience -rose for a stampede, when
Sutler oaaae to the front of the plat
form beside Mr. Choate, and, calling
the audience to halt, said there was
no-danger; that the architeot of the
building was present, and that he
Would go with him, and examine the
building,' and report to allay their
fears. Thio quieted the audience.
Butler and the architect made an
immediate examination of the hall
and found the danger very great
Butler at once returned and smiling
ly assured" the audience there was not
present d anger, but as the hall was over
crowded, he advised them to quietly
adjourn to the public square and
there Hr. Choate would finish his
speech. The crowd went quietly out
and the catastrophe was averted. As
Butler stepped on the platform he
had "whispered- to Mr. Choate with a
half laugh in order to deceive the
audience. This is what he said: "Mr.
Choate J must clear this house or we
shall all be in hell in ilve minutes."

Arziinient for Cremation.
In all the cemeteries in Italy which
I have vibited- -Genoa, Pisa, Florence,
Bologna, Borne, Naples the system
of burial is the same. The popr are
simply interred in the earth in the
quadrangular spaces, surrounded by
colonnades and chapels. The rich
are covered up in vaults in chapel-,
or beuoath the stone flooring of the
arcades, or in niches along the walls,
one above the other from floor to
ceiling, in all cases going through a
process, more or less rapid, of putre
factive decay. Soil and aspect affect
the rapidity" of the process; but I was
assured that about ten years was the
period which must elapse before a
body can be regarded as inoffeushe
or injurious to the living. Compare
this with the two hours required by
the practice of cremation, and com
pare the Italir.n cemeteries with om
own over-crowded hot-beds of cor
ruption. In this metropolitan dis
trict, in the twenty-five years 1359
1883, the deaths registered numbering
1,890,31-1. Of course the dead .have
been buried, and with scarcely an ox
ception in and around London. Grant
that in ten ears a bod' may become
harmless although I do not at all
believe that it does so within twenty
years in our soil and climate can any
imagination conceive the enormous
mass of decaying animal matter by
which we are surrounded? Could
any one be surprised at the outbreak
of some devastating pestilence a hundred-fold
more destructive than the
plague or black death of the middle
age-.' And ought not erery sanitary
reformer to aid in the revival of the
ancient practice which would convert
the existing cemeteries, so rapidly
becoming Sources of danger to the
public health, into permanently beau
tiful gardens, receptacles for vases
and cinerary urns, which would en
courage sculpture, murnl decoration
and colored glass-work; while in our
eoiintr tilnirche.1 the ashes of the
people might again repose in death

"Here is another hundred acres of
land withdrawn from the food-producing
area of the country for ever.
" In the same sense in which
the 'Sabbath was made for man, and
not man for the Sabbath,' I hold that
the 'earth was made not for the dead,
but for the living. No intelligent
faith can suppose that any Christian
doctrine is affected by the manner in
which, or the time in which, this mor

In the crowd around the oonrt-
room ma bo seen ali sorts and condi-
iio of mon;brokeu-down politicians
and ex-lcaders sit beside the able law-
blintc' and making friends with the
"lambs" they desire to tleece; tho
"crackers' sit in open-mouthed
amazement and admiration as the
speaker who is urging the convic
tion of an illicit distiller pounds on
the table and stamps his feet and
pours forth his flood of eloquence;
the women slyly smoke their pipes; the
judge nods drowsily, and the clerk of
the court yawns, for this is tiresome
work to them; on every side squalor
reigns supreme. The benches are
dirty and uncomfortable, the floors
are covered with mud of that peouliar
tenacious character that abounds
here, and the windows look as if they
had not been washed since that peri-
00" from which everything dates here,
"befo de wah." The conrt has been
in session here two weeks, and during-
that time nearly half a hundred illicit
distillers have been tried, and most of
them convicted. Correspondence of
