The Co. torn of Wearing Crape for Long
Period. Palling Into Maine.
We go through a great deal of false
sentiment and false politeness in the
matter of our funeral ceremonies and
our mourning attire. In the youthful
days of our present sexagenarians tha
mark of mourning a piece of black
crape around the sleeve of a colored
coat was reserved for the army only.
Army and navy officers alone might
make this modest manifestation stand
in lieu of the glossy sables and deep
hat-bands of civilians. There was a
howl, as well as a sneer, when these
civilians adopted the military custom,
and on the sleeve of a colored cout
stitched a black band to denote the
death of a dear friend or near relation.
Howls and sneers notwithstanding, the
custom gained ground, and is now reo
ogni.ed, adopted and approved of.
There are many who set their faces
against the excessive mourning of by
gone attire. No longer do all widows
even think it necessary to clothe them
selves in crape, and the life-long obli
gation of the widow's cap, like the life
long obligation of the widow's black,
is at an end. Those who like to cling
to the ancient methods have their will
and do their pleasure, but those who
do not those who carry death in their
hearts and do not care to show it to the
world or those who really are not
deeply afflicted may disponse with
mourning altogether. If they have the
mind. Simple black answers all the
purpose, and the term for this is great
ly curtailed. We no longer feel that
we owe it to the memory of the dear
dead to make ourselves uncomfortable,
and to spend moDey on mere show oa
mere signs and symbols to gratify the
watching world. Deep in jour hearts
we bear the sacred image we keep
alive the holy flame. We have loved
that noble man, that pure-souled woman
the father, the hujband, the glorious
brother, the mother who bore us, and
the 6ister who was our cradle
playmate. We have loved for all
our life; we snail love to the
hour . of death. But need we then
elothe ourselves in crape and woolen,
and mark ourselves "Bereaved" as by
a placard pinned to our breast? Far
better and more suitable aye and
sometimes far more sincere, too ths
undemonstrative acceptance of the in
evitablethe quiet cherishing of secret
sorrow the close concealment of ths
sacred love. The sorrow lies there,
and we do not wish to show it to ths
world as a beggar unfolds his sore.
We do not wish to be questioned nor
condoled with. Who can comfort us!
No one! What good does it do us or
the world to flaunt our grief in crape
and weepers in the face of the curious,
the unsympathetic, the critical? Toe

The army worm, according to Mr.
Lawrence Bruner of the Nebraska Ex
periment Station, has appeared in that
State in threatening numbers; and as
a means of checking its increase he
makes the following suggestions in a
recent Station Bulletin:
Chief among the remedies adopted
for keeping in check the increase o
this pest is the burning of old grass,
stubble and other like receptacles for
the eggs and hibernating larvaj. Per
haps this accounts for the absence of
the pest from our frontier settlements
in this and other Western States for
the past twenty years and more, the
customary fall and early spring prairie
lires having destroyed such eggs and
larvae as would otherwise have entered
upon the spring and summer cam
paigns. This is a preventive before the
pest has "materialized." The burn
ing should be postponed until spring
has well advanced, to ' be of most
benefit. During late years, the increase
of area cultivated, and the preventibo
of starting tires on the prairies, espe
cially in the "cattle districts" of ths
Northwest, has perhaps been the dt
rect cause for the presence of this in
sect in injurious numbers.
Ditching, rolling, plowing, etc., are
remedies that can be used advantage
ously now. Ditching and fencing can
be resorted. to in preventing the worms
troiu fuooi., ..uui olio DelU lo another.
Fence boards set on edge and saturated
with kerot-etie will effectually check an
advancing column, after which they
can be destroyed by crushing. Ditch
ing, with the opposite side of the ditch
from the advancing host "dug under,"
will "corral" the worms for the time
being, when they can be destroyed by
crushing, or by covering them with
hay or straw and setting fire to it
Poisoning with London purple and
Paris green has also been resorted to
with good results; but as long as other
and less dangerous methods do not
fail, it is advisable not to resort to
these. Grass or grain that has been
sprayed with these poisons should
never be fed to stock, as there is dan
ger of poisoning animals so fed.

A SAMPLE DAY AT HARVARD.
A BuflVlonlan Tells How HU Time is
Spent in College.
Counting undergraduates and special
students together, there are 1,140 young
men lietween the ages of 17 and 24 now
residing at Harvard college. The writer
enjoyed an interview with one of the
Buffalo boys, who was at home for a
brief recess, a short time ago. "You
will understand," he said, "that I am
neither a 'grind' nor a loafer, but an av
erage student, and the vast majority of
them live just about as I do. A picture
of my college day is about as follows:
I turn out anywhere between 7:30 and 8
in the morning, and go over to Memorial
to breakfast at 8 or 8:30 sometimes
earlier than that, so as to go to chapeL
Prayers come at 8:45, and are well at
tended, though we don't have to go unless
we choose. After this recitations and
lectures take up nearly the whole fore
noon, and 1 have one In the afternoon
three times a week. On four days of the
week I have three recitations, on the
others two. Other men . have them dif
ferently, according to the electives they
take. My studies are over for the day
at 3 p. m and they occupy, all told,
about seven hours a day.
"I'm interested in athletics, and my
afternoon from 3 to 5:30 is spent in the
gymnasium, or in outdoor athletics in
the season for them. Part of our train
ing, in suitable weather, consists of a run
of two miles, to Porter's station and back.
The gymnasium is always crowded, and
you get pretty well heated up by your
exercise, whatever it is. Then, after a
cold shower and a ' brisk rubbing, you
feel like a king, and don't you just sleep
nights, though! I find that my athletic
training helps my studies greatly. Din
ner comes at 6, and 1 generally study
evenings, though not always. I've been
to tiie theatres some eight or nine times
this term, but 1 don't like to go to Boston
much. It takes too long and you have
to be up late, which won't do when you
are in training. '
"Many people have the Idea that yot'
can let your studies go and loaf, or worse,
until two or three weeks before the ex
aminations, and then cram up. This is
utter nonsense. It is simply impossible
to keep up with your class in that way,
unless, indeed, you can spend $100 or
$l!il) for private tutors, and even then
you wouldn't lie safe. As for cutting
recitations, if you made a practice of do
ing it ol'tener than twice a week, you'd
lie investigated, sure as fate and that if
not at till pleasant.
"On Sundays I go to church some
where sometimes to Boston to hear
Phillips Brooks, sometimes to the college
chapel, sometimes elsewhere. There are
usually 400 or 000 at morning prayers,
and more than that at the Sunday even
ing service, though you don't have to go
to either unless you want to." Buffalo
Jackets are so becoming to fine fig
ures that they are always liked to woar
over dresses that are made without
redingotes. Piping of a contrasting
color of c'oth or else a piping of trilt
braid will edge theee jackets. The
Directoire revers, short and broad, are
turned over at the top to disclose a
vest of cloth of lighter color In some
jackets, while others havo long rolling
revers extending to the end of the
fronts of the jacket and disclosing a
vest of lighter cloth nearly covered
with applique designs, curves, arab
esques, flowers, eto., done in cloth of a
darker shade and edged with feather
braid. The Empire belt four or five
Inches wide is placed across the vest
of many jackets, disappearing under
the revers, and is usually of cloth
elaborately braided. The Directoire
capes, or three deep collars, the largest
reaching only to the shoulder tips, are
on other jackets, and are especially
liked in dark green eloth, with yellow
cloth piping or else gilt braid on the
edge of the capes; the same pipings
are used on drab or brown cloth capes,
while silver braid edges those of gray
cloth. Harper's Bazar.

The time seems fast passing away'
for the frequent great state pageant
in which the royal courts of Europe
were wont to indulge. It is true that
now and then we hear descriptions of
gorgeous ceremonies, attended by all
the state and show of the olden time,
but they become more and more rar
as the age advances.
Attention is called to the fact by &
notable excoption to it which was re
cently seen at the Winter Palace, in
St Petersburg. The Russian New
Year comes eleven days later than
ours, and is preceded, according to the
rules of the Russian Church, by a
very strict fast of six weeks. Then
all the pomp of the Imperial court is
displayed as the new year opens. On
the last of these occasions the festivity
was observed with quite as much
splendor as in earlier days. It was
half European, half Oriental. The
eostumes and uniforms were dazzling1
and varied, and Circassians and Sibe
rians vie'd with European Russians in
the brilliancy and gorgeousness of.
their displays. ,
The halls of the Winter Palace, ;ay '
a graphic account, "were converted.by
means of rare tropical plants, into,
gardens of delicious verdure; the
mellow sheen of thousands of wax,
candles contrasted with the brilliancy
of the electric light, shining on buffets
heaped high with the coronation plate
and a background of supper tables
was laden with native and exotio
Such scenes, which were once not
uncommon at European courts, are
now rarely presented at any except
the Russian court
In England a gorgeous state pageant
is in these days rare indeed. On the
occasion of her jubilee, a year and a
half ago, indeed Queen Victoria made
a brilliant celebration, at which Kinga.
and Princes attended in a glittering .

Jraris has not witnessed any very ,
splendid pageant for more than t wenty
years. Parisians who reraembc the
display of Napoleon III., when, in
1867, he was visited in turn by nearly
every crowned head of Europe, and by
at least one Asiatio potentate, can find
nothing tniit has taken place since to
equal It. France is Republican, and
since the downfall of the Empire has
become less ostentatious
It used to be the boast of Spain that
the court of Madrid was the only great
court in Europe. "Madrid es sola
corte," the Spaniards used proudly to
declare in their musical tongue; but
the glories of the old Spanish court
have pretty much passed away. Thera
is still a more stiff and rigid ceremony,
indeed, at the 'Madrid palace than In
any other, and a host of royal servants

but even coronations and t oyal bapt

It is said that the present King of

did before him. Certain it is that
Rome rarely witnesses a great inyal

The German pageants of the modern
day are, for the most part, great mili
tary reviews and maneuvers, designed
to set forth the armed prowess of the
Empire, and the same may be said of
those of the Austrian court.
With the more democratic age is
vanishing the old-time pomp and dis
play of royalty, as if it wore felt that
such display Is out of place at a period
when the people are taking a greater
share in the Governments, and at a
period, also, when immense sums of
money are needed by the sovereigns in
order to keep up their huge military
armaments. Youth's Companion.

The insidious character of the danger
lurking lu electric light wires In the
street was exemplified the other day in
Baltimore. Two individuals conversing
close by an Iron awning post were ob
served to fall suddely to the ground. A
broken telephone wire had established
communication between the electric lighV
wire and the framework of the awning.
The strength of the current was doubt
less divided, and the victims eventually
recovered their senses. New York Telegram.
