MEDALS OF HONOR.' i
How Vncls Sam Rewards the He.oeS of
His Army mud Mary.
The medal of honor is the one decora
tion given by the United States to
those of its soldiers and sailors who
distinguished themselves by acts of in
dividual gallantry. This decoration
was authorized for military service by
a joint resolution passed by both
houses of Congress and approved tfuly
12, 18G2, authorizing the President "to
cause 2,003 medals of honor to be pre
pared with suitable emblematic de
vices, and to direct that the same be
presented in the name of Congress to
such non-commissioned officers and
privates as shall most distinguish
themselves by their gallantry in ac
tion and their soldier-like qualities
during the present insurrection." This
was followed March 3, 1863, by an act
authorizing the additional issue of
medals of honor for such officers, non
commissioned officers, and privates aa
have most distinguished, or may here
after most distinguish, themselves in
action," appropriating f 20,000 to de
fray the expenses of the same. The
medal prepared was a five-pointed
star, tipped with trefoil, each point
containing a crown of laurel and
oak; in the middle, within a cir
cle of thirty-four stars, America ia
personified as Minerva, with her left
hand resting on the fasces, while with
her right. In which Bhe holds a
shield bearing the arms of the United
States, Bhe repels Discord. The whole
is suspended by a trophy of two crossed
cannon and a sword surmounted by the
American eagle, and linked with the
dependent star. A ribbon of thirteen
stripes, blue and white, headed with a
stripe of plain blue, unites it with a
clasp consisting of two cornucopias
and the arms of the United States. The
medal is of bronze, and no distinction
has as yet boon made by giving medals
of silver . or gold where services of
peculiar heroism have been performed.
This medal is within the reach of the
humblest private in the army, and is
prized by its most distinguished officers.
A large majority of those who have
received tho medal were enlisted men
In tho volunteer ranks during the civil
war, but many have also been conferred
upon members of tho regular army
aot only for heroic acts during the war,
but similar deeds while engaged In
fighting tho hostile Indians in the
ardous campaigns on the frontier. Tho
medals of honor for the navy were
authorized by an act of Congress
passed in the latter part of 1861, to be
accorded by the Secretary of the Navy
to such petty officers and others of in
ferior rank as should most distinguish
themselves by their gallantry in action
in the navy during the war. It was a
bronze in the form of a star with rive
points, with a device emblematic of
Union crushing the monster Rebellion,
around which were thirty-three stars,
the number of States then In the Union.
The naval medals were accorded to 820
persons. Those given in the army
amounted to several thousand. Chi

Description or a Visit to tho Elegant Homo
of an Indian Prince.
When I was-finishing a busy day, in
company with Mr. May, we stopped at
tbe house of a Rajah, on a side of Cal
cutta which I had not visited before.
The magnificent home of a native
Hindu Prince is always a place of in
terest The fact that such a thin ex
ists, is of itself remarkable. The Eng
lish .' ave hud matters the'r own way,
and, like the Clive, could easily have
absorbed about all the wealth tt the
country. On the contrary, they have
been just and moderate. Even the
Princes 1 who arrayed themselves
against India during the mutiny have
not been turned adrift without a rupee.
Many of the noble families are to-day
drawing pensions from the general
treasury, and living ia vast luxury.
There are many others, hwever, who
set m to have been in no way connected
with the political complications of the
country, and are in tbe undisturbed en
joyment of their vast estates. Tha
English respect for native rights in
India is one of the most remarkabl
illustrations of political justice in his
tory. It is as far above modera Spain's
treatment of her colonial possessions,
or ancient Rome's procedure in rela
tion to' her conquered provinces, as
Christianity is above and beyond either
ancient or modern paganism.
Tiie entrance from the street to this
Rrri.-th's home is large, and unguarded
by servants. There is a large circular
court, with a pond for marine fowl
and fi.-lies. In the trees there are par
rots and other tame birds. -
Our cards at the door of "the great
mansion sec-uretl us prompt admission.
The furnitnre was rich, and mostly in
European style, but there were soma
old pieces of elaborate Indian work
m.tnship. Marble objects of ornament,
and r.eh floors, and finely wrought
wainscoting, and tall mirreirs were to
1-c seen oa every hand. The rtKnts
were in part in suits, and in jart locat
ed singly, as quiet nooks for conversa
tion ami retirement. Some of the
larger halls and ehnm'jers were in pro
cess of new decoration.
In India much of the work of embel
I shin.s. and even of the more solid dec
oration iri stone, is donrj by artists in
the hr.-uso, and not in the distant work
shops. The marble eutte-rs, instead of
finishing th objects away from tha
house, do it on the spot where they
r.re to be rrsed. It is no short
task, therefore, to put a native house
in order in India. Weod and stona are
brought to the place in the rough, and
the workmen, in large numbers carry
out their piaas within tha eye of the
owner of the house. In this Rajah's
house was all the litter of a great Flor
entine marble workshop. Here was
work going on in fine mosaic, the ar
tists, no doubt, having come from
Agra for the special purpose. There
were many servants and overseers,
some ef " them clad in picturesque
oriental costume, and all having their
The" grandson of the Rajah, aeourtir
young g ntleraan, conversed with us a
few minutes, and then withdrew. . The
intel!rent attendant who had received
us at first was in no haste, but gave us
ample time to ' examine th:s immense
building and all its appointments and
the surrounding grounds. One tiring
here greatly astonished me the appar
ent mtxlesty of the wealthy native. If
he has an ostentatious spirit, it is bard
to eletet-t it. He says nothing ia praise
of his rare birds, or fine mosaics, vast
halls, or the immense - boa con sirtc
t jrs, which wind about, or sleep in tho
meadow behind the close wire fence,
lie simply stands at a distance, or
leaves a servant with you, and only
bows his head ia acknowledgement of
any words of appreciation which jou
may say concerning any beaut'ful or
DR. HAY'S THEORY.
How a London Chenalst Would Dispose ol
the Bodies of the Dead.
Dr. George Hay, a London chemist,
advances a plan for the disposition of
the dead bodies of human beings. He
advocates an economic distribution of
tbe remains, so that they may return
to the elements as soon as possible,
if for &o other purpose than to furnish,
a fertilizer. Dr. Hay would pulverize
the body with the aid of machinery.
He says: "The machines might be
Contrived so as to break the bones first
ia pieces of the size of a hen egg, next
into fragments of the size of a marble,
and the mangled and lacerated mass
could next be reduced by means of
chopping machines and steam power
to mincemeat. A t this stage we have
a homogeneous mixture of the entire
body structure in the form of a pulpua
mass of raw meat and raw bones.
This mass should now be dried thor
oughly by means of steam heat at a
temperature of two hundred and fifty
degrees, or a pressure 'of thirty
pounds to the inch; because
firstly, we wish to reduce the materia
to a condition convenient for handling,
and, secondly, we wish to disinfect it,
as no infectious or contagious disease
can retain its vitality at this temper
ature. Ouce in this condition would
command a good price for the purpose
of manure. Another method is by
boiling in close vessels. The oil
which would rise to the top may be
drawn off to he converted into soap or
a lubricant. The residue may by vari
ous simple processes be converted into
fertilizing material." His final and
most brilliant suggestion is the "dis
tillation method." The bodies are to
be placed in gas retorts, and in about
six hours will be converted into illumi
nating gas, water, ammonia, tar and
animal charcoal. By subsequent dis
tillations, such substancea as sulphate
of ammonia, aniline colors and eorbol
Ic acid may be obtained. It is this
process which finds most favor with
the writer. SL Paul Pioneer-Press.
