Seldom did a great nation give
itself bo heartily to a public celebra
tion of a great event as the American
people gave themselves to the cele
bration of the obsequies of Gen.
Grant. His funeral is destined to
rank with the great funerals of
history. In thus honoring its de-cp-isi'd
hero, America followed an old
and time-honored custom. From the
earliest times it has been the custom
to do honor to the illustrious dead,
and the sentiment of immortality has
. been encouraged by pyramid and
I pillar, by monumental bronze, by
cnurcii and tower. Hie monuments
of the Old World what are they in
most instances but monuments to the
dead? In Jerusalem, at Cario, at
Westminster, by the banks of the
Ilooglev, and by the banks of the
Ganges, what is it that most in
terests the traveler? It is the tombs
, of the illustrious ilail the tombs of
. prophets and of kings, of mighty
' warriors and of sainted men. A
, gray-haired Judge said to a reporter
recently: "As a nation we are j'oung
I in years, and, therefore, not abound
j ing in such memorial structures.
, lint we are not ungenerous we are
not forgetful of our own great ones
and we are building wisely and well.
WV begin to have our sacred spots ;
and already the traveler takes pride
in visiting the resting places of
Washington, of Lincoln, and of Gar
field. A fourth American shrine will
henceforth be found on the banks of
I'ublic funerals were common
among the ancient Greeks, and many
of the ceremonies which are still ob
served among us have come down
from the earliest times. A public
funeral was considered a great honor.
In the days of Augustus C:csar they
became more common than formerly.
On the day of the funeral, when the
people were assembled, the dead
bod3r was carried out, feet foremost,
on a couch covered with rich cloth,
with gold and purple, and borne on
the shoulders of the nearest relatives
of the deceased. Julius Ciesnr was
l)orne by the magistrates ; Augustus
was borne by thebenators; Germani
cus was borne by the tribunes and
TIMES OK rUNEHALS.
In the earlier times, both among
the Greeks and Romans, the custom
was to bury at night. Hence the
prominence'of the funeral torch in
classical literature. Later, funerals
were celebrated in the afternoon, but
the torches were used all the same.
Then, as now, the procession was
headed by bands of music. It was
customary, also, 'to bear before the
corpse the images of the deceased
and of his ancestors, and if the de
ceased had distinguished himself in
war there was a display of the crowns
or other trophies he ha'd won. At the
funeral of Sylla, it is said, 2,000
crowns were thus exhibited. The
oration, also, is of ver3 ancient date.
In Home the custom was to bear the
body to the forum, where the pro
cession halted and where tho oration
was delivered. During the oration
the body was laid before tho rostra.
The body of Julius Ctesar was
placed in a gilt pavilion, like a small
temple; the robe in which he was
slain was suspended on a pole, and
on a movable machine was an image
of the body with the marks of all the
wounds. Cremation was common
among the Romans of the republic
It gradually died out under the
empire, and with the growth of
Christianity interment became pop
ular, the graveyard becoming an
accompaniment of the church.
.Some very singular practices con
nected with funerals, public and
private, at one time common, are
now no longer witnessed. In some
parts of England it was customary,
not so very long ago, to carrv, as "it
was said, "the dead with the sun" to
the grave. A West Hartlepool clergy
man was struck one day with what
he considered an extraordinary
movement made by a funeral partv.
When the procession had reached tlie
gate the entire party turned back and
marched around the churchyard wall,
thus traversing its west, north, and
east boundaries. On inquiring the
reason, one of the mourners quieklv
replied: "Why, ye wad na hae them
carry the dead again the sun? The
dead men aye go wi' the sun." A
strong prejudice at one time existed
against the north side of the church.
It was supposed to be outside the
sanctuary, and was called "the
wrong side of the church." At one
time, too, much attention was paid to
the position of the grave. It must be
due east and west.
In his "Domestic Folk Lore," Mr.
Thistelton Dyer mentions a very
pretty custom which at one time pre
vailed in some parts of rural England.
At the funeral of a young unmarried
girl, or of a bride who had died dur
ing her honeymoon, a chaplet of
flowers was carried before the corpse
by a young girl, and afterward hung
up in the church over the accustomed
seat of the deceased.
In earlier times the church was
very hard on offenders against her
laws. There was generally a part of
the churchyard left unconsecrated
for the special benefit of excom-.
municated persons. It was con
sidered unlucky to meet a funeral,
and there are many persons in rural
I districts to-day who would walk a
good mile out of the way to avoid
such an event. One popular belief
was that the ghost ol the person last
buried kept watch over the church
yard till the next funeral. These old
superstitions are rapidly becoming
things of the past. N. Y. Herald.
The Else or the Postage Stamp.
It is estimated that everv year
about 50,000,000,000 fetters are'posted
in the world. America leads, with
about 2,500,000,000 and England fol
lows with 700,000,000. Japan, which
established a postal service only ten
years ago, now mails annually 95,000
000 letters. Postage stamps are of a
far more recent origin than many
people imagine. Great Britain was
the first country to issue them, and
in 1840 a prepaid envelope made its
appearance, designed by W. Mul
ready. Prepaid letter sheets were is
sued about the same time, there
being two denominations, one penny
and two penny. Before that time the
postage was prepaid at the post-office,
or, what was even more common, col
lected upon delivery. Now almost
every country in the" civilized world
has adopted this method of prepaying
postage. Strange as it may appear,
Brazil, in 1843, was the lirst nation to
follow Groat Britain's example. It
was not until 1S47 that the United
States began to use postage stamps,
but peveral years prior to that time
the postmasters at New York, St.
Louis, Baltimore, New Haven, Prov
idence and Brattlcboro had issued
stamps for their own convenience.

"How is Col. Faquier Beverly
coming on this morning?" asked Gil
hooly of an Austin physician.
"We tried to applyleeches to the
back of his neck last night."
"He felt better afterward, I sup
pose?" "No, he didn't, for the leeches re
fused to bite. They were of no use
"What's the reason of that?"
"We are all mightiby puzzled about
it, but I know why the leeches re

The Liu... or Cold.
Fahrenheit supposed the absolute
zero or temperature to be thirty-two
degrees of his scale below the freez
ing point of water. Later physicists
have found that it must be 492 de
grees below freezing point, 460 de
grees below Fahrenheit's zero. The
temperature of the globe is known to
fall in polar regions as low as 75 de
grees below the Fahrenheit zero, and
in recent experiments in the lique
faction of gases two Russian chem
ists have produced an artificial cold
of 346 degrees below zero. The lat
ter temperature 114 degrees above
the theoretical zero point is the
lowest which has fallen under theob
scrvatirn of man.

A glance at Bill Arp's melancholy
face, the other day, suggested the
query: Why are all humorists
gloomy? The greatest English wits
and humorists lived lives of work
