ICOPYtUGHT, ISUt] HE pomp and clr- cnmstance at- tending'the rites of the dead are the most imposing of our ceremonies, and the importance of a »*.«. - correct arrangement of details cannot be overestimated. The embarrassment caused by a break in a wedding- ceremony Is as nothing to the horror which creeps over the assembled mourners when the undertaker has neglected some little detail in the conduct of a funeral. Everything must run smoothly even if th« g rlef-strickcn friends arc compelled to assist In tho preparations. This Is seldom the case, however, as everything 1 is In the hrnds of the undertaker from the instant of death until the last heap of earth Is thrown into the grave. Although it Is a trying ordeal for the afflicted mourners, most people prefer to select the burial robes for their own dead. These depend very ranch upon the age of the deceased. The old fash- Ion of making the shroud as a, labor of love has given way to the more convenient custom of giving the order to the undertaker. The suddenness of death necessitates his keeping a stock of ready-made burial robes which differ more in color ond arrangement of trimming than in any other particular. They are all long, loose gowns suggestive of sleeping robes. Some hare flntings of satin. Others are trimmed with fine lace and oven chiffon. It sounds almost frivolous, does it not? But the old Puritan severity is at last vanishing from the trappings of the error,' has'corner* carved -to rc»enjbl« pillars. This IB a royal bier for a great man when It is carved in mahogany. The late Commissioner Nolan, of Brooklyn, sought his last resting place in this kind of a casket. • For any of these you may pay from one hundred to suven hundred dollars. Little children's caskets are always white and range in price from thirty to one hundred and fifty dollars. Many metal caskets are made to plcH.se tho fancy for a chest that will defy the Clements. Some arc of solid lead, especially in ease of a long 1 ocean voyage, and whun there is a contagious disease metal is required. Plnsli, which was onco the most elegant thing to be purchased, is no longer used by tho wealthier class. Broadcloth over red cedar wood is the most correct, as it is most costly. When all is ready for the performance of the funeral rites opportunity is given (if tho services are held at the house) to near and dear friends, In groups of five or six, to take a final leave' of tho deceased. This is a precaution against those who are addicted to a kind of funereal dissipation and go from funeral to funeral to feast their eyes upon the lifeless clay which they never saw or cared to see before. By doing away with the procession we abate a nuisance which has often prevented the nearest and dearest friends from taking a farewell glance at the face of the dead. If the remains are to be disposed of by cremation, the seme ceremonies at those heretofore mentioned are ob- aerved.'with all the other funeral rites, only excepting the actual burial. Owing to tho improvement in embalming methods the time of interment may be postponed much longer than formerly, and it is becoming the custom to keep the remains five days or even a week, thus giving ample time for relatives and friends to come from distant parts. This also does away with the misfortune of having to bnry one's dearer ones in a foreign land or at sea. The time of Interment variei slightly, but the most common time is ten a.

Hence, peopled* the best taste, e»pe- fliaJIj i am6n'g 'the wealthier class of Episcopalians, discountenance ostentation or ornament of any kind, and Insist upon the utmost plainness of detail. But this lack of adornment does not mean cheapness of material as the undertaker's bill In the thouionds would vouch. A plain, rosewood caaket act in a solid oak box may not dazzle the eyes of the multitude so much as one of the more ornate kind; but if the honor to the deceased ^is to be estimated in dollars rather than disploy.it is quite sufficient A wealthy lady whose funeral was recently held in Trinity church was wrapped in white silken robes of the most exquisite quality, the mere lining of which cost twenty-Bve dollars a yard. Men are usually burled in a Prince Albert suit. Sometimes they are robed in flowing black or white garments girdled at the waist. Priests and other church officials are laid to rest in their vestments. Men of prominence are usually robed in garments suggestive of their sphere of distinction in life. The duke of Clarence was dressed for burial in the uniform of his regiment. President Garfiold went to bis last resting place as he had many times gone to the scene of his presidential labors, frock coat and gray tronsern. The kind of tombstone and the place of burial is a most Important criterion of social position, as is evinced by a conversation overheard at a fashionable gathering. "Who are those Smythes?" said one lady to another. "I don't know," was the reply; "where do they bury?" Caskets for the repose of the dead •re almost as varied M .the abodes of the living. They have distinguishing appellations which are somewhat suggestive of our Queen Anne cottages and Gothic dwellings for the living. For instance, there is tbe "Senator," which differs from ordinary caskets in the shape of it* corners.

Night funerals are growing In favor, though it seems a gruesomo setting for a gloomy ceremony. It has, however, the merit of convenience, and in this day of hurry and rush for the living the dead are forced to the background where they Seripturnlly belong. At such times interment is postponed until early the following morning, when only the male members of the family and a few near friends escort the remains to the place of burial The donning of mourning weeds li becoming more and more. a matter of personal preference. Two considerations will doubtless always have weight with the bereaved. There is an element of respect in the assuming of garments which give outward sign of the esteem In whfoh the deoeasec was held, and this people hesitate to disregard. The other consideratior has to do with the convenience ant comfort of the mourners. It does away with painful question on the port of those who have not heard o: the death. This is an important con slderation, and has induced more people to don the "trappings and the suits of woe" than any other. Consid ered from this point of view, and not as a moans to add gloom to one's appearance, mourning need not neces sarily bo unbecoming and unorna- mental- In keeping with tho principles ladies have gradually added more anc more white to their mourning weeds until we now see an all white front in the deepest mourning. Every year w< read upon good authority that crape is going out, but just as regularly we may meet our half dozen ladles in whole dresses of crape. The long veil over the face is no longer worn, except on the very day o the funeral. In Its place is a short face veil, with a narrow band of crape a the bottom. The long veil is now fas toned.at the very tip of tbe back of th bonnet, and hansrs to the bottom of th 'dress. There has been a movement to insti tute a motirninp period of three months for everybody, but this time i too short for the truly grief-stricken and will probably not gain much favor The most approved materials are hen rietta, silk nuns' veiling, drap d Toulon, and the different varieties o crape. The styles of mourning gown wry with the other fashions for th living. Those for the dead are th same in sojnm«r-*nd winter,-for-wit: them time has become eternity and ail seasons are as one.'. -, A POLONY OF MEROV. Th* Wonderful German Prototype of fa* • fland'i Flnt Epileptic Settlement. Skipping's farm Is to be the site of he first English epileptic settlement— a settlement, that is, whoso patients will find in work of some sort the main ure. or alleviation at least, for their lilments of mind and body. The idcxi of such a settlement is by no means new. The first settlement or colony )f the kind in Europe, or in the world, was founded at Gaddnrbaum, near Bielefeld, in Westphalia, more than wenty years ago. Shipping's farm oiony will be established to some event on the German model. The {^en- rol purpose of the national society muy be described, in Sin .lames Crieh- on Browne's words, as "Wie establishment of colonies which will be busy ittle hives of industry, with two sorts of products—the fruits of the earth and manufactured articles for sale and mental contentment and improved icalth, which arc beyond all price." It will be unnecessary to begin the colony on a grand scale. A colony of this kind, to bo at nil successful, should grow mainly by its own resources—should be nearly self-support- ng. The Bielefeld colony began, with -wenty patients, and is now a large, veil-built prosperous village of about 1,500 patients, with splendid workshops, gardens and farms. In the Bielefeld colony, of which Stopping's farm colony is to be a kind of copy, all the epileptic patients do something or other. These who are It for nothing else collect and assort jostage stamps, from the sale of wWeb. ;he colony derives a considerable revenue.. The head of the stamp office is acknowledged to be one of the highest authorities on stamp values in Germany. He showed me some of his rarest treasures; thrfr prices were sim- ily astounding. In a word, the colony at Bielefeld IB a self-supporting community of epileptic farmers, epileptic tailors, epileptic bakers, carpenters, shoemakers, blacksmiths, washerwomen, dress-makers, printers, etc. There ,s no finer bakery in London than the epileptic bakery in Bielefeld. In every workshop, school-room, farm house, dwelling house In the colony, and in Its large church as well, the couches are ready for the reception of any workman or workwoman, worshiper, scholar, Inmate, who may drop down in the midst of his or her duty. Of course, those who are subject to frequent and violent fits are not put in positions where they cannot bo con- itantly watched. The Bielefeld colony is one of the most pathetic sights in the world. And yet how happy that little town of epileptics really is! It is marvelous; and the secret of it is— work, the kind of work that each can do best, and even then no more of it than is good for him or her. Some, who are good for nothing else, carry messages. An old baron acts as colonial postman. He sometimes falls down in a fit, but his fits are never severe. Ho knows when they are coming and he has a knack of clutching his letter bag in the nick of time, so that when he wakes up again, in half a minute or»o, he may find his trust uninjured. These epileptics build their own houses, till their own fields, grow their own flowers, bake'their own bread, black their own boots, do their own washing, mending, darning, ironing, clip each other's hair, shave each other's cheeks and chins and watch over each other's fits; in other words, they save tens of thousands of pounds which otherwise would have to be spent on imported labor and by doing their own work they are following the very best means of effecting their own cure. Occupation for body and mind-such is tho secret of the marvelous success of that unique colony at Bielefeld. The too common practice in England of sending epileptic patients to lunatic asylums is as stupid as it is cruel. An epileptic patient is not necessarily a mad' man. But many an epileptic patient has been driven into insanity by enforced association with lunatics. The number of epileptics in England is estimated at about 150,000; that is the estimate which has been given me, but I cannot just now vouch for its accuracy. In any case the total must be very great The colony at Skipping's farm even if it ever becomes as great and flourishing as the Westphalian colony, can only shelter a small fraction of that immense multitude. -Lon don News. . Mohair Drones, Very useful dresses for morning wear in spring and for traveling and the seashore in summer are of davit mohair, blue, brown or gray, of the coarse weave so much used a few years ago. This is a light-weight fabric with smooth lustrous surface that sheds dust and water. In navy blue it will rival the serges and sackings that are used for steamer, boating and other outing dresses. Paris tailors make these gowns more elaborately than those brought from London, having a long English overskirt eaug-ht up on the left side and trimmed above a hem with a row of black satin ribbon an inch wide overlaid with a vine of ecru lace. The silk petticoat disclosed bv the draping is four yards and a half wide, with a knife-plaited ruffle six inches deep around It, bordered with the black ribbon and lace vine. A long coat of the mohair-reacbes to the knee and is fitted'in the back with loose- tod open fronts. The side forms ex tend in pointed basques edged with ribbon and lace. Short revarb and a, turned-over collar aro similarly trimmed, but the gigot sleeves are tjlain This is worn over a shirt waist of silk like the petticoat in ombre strines of pink and brown, a charming contrast to the blue of the gown.— Earner's Bazar. - ' •••' STRONG POINT about * tnc cure* ojr **"***• •* f ^_ that they are permanent.

There .is no substitute for a genuine, free, serene, healthy, bread-and-butter childhood. A line manhood or woman- icod can be built on no other founda- .ion, and yet our American homes are so often filled with hurry and worry, our manner of living is so keyed to concert pitch, our plan of existence so complicated, that we dr;jff the babies along in o>ir wake and force them to our artificial standard*, fortfetlinfr that •sweet flowers are slow, and weeds nake haste." If we must, or fancy that we must, nul this false, too feverish life, let us it least spare them. By hooping them 'orever on tiptoe we are i" danger of jrodncinff nn army of conventional ittle prigs, who know much more than f.hey should about matters which are profitless even to their elders. As to keeping children too clean for any mortal use, I suppose nothing is more disastrous. The divine ripht U> be gloriously dirty a. large portion of the time, when dirt is a necessary consequence of direct, useful, friendly contact with all sorts of intercstinjr helpful things, is too clear to be denied. The children who have to think of their clothes before playing with the dogs, digging in the sand, working m the shed, building a bridge or weeding the garden never get half their legitimate enjoyment out of life. I have a good deal of sympathy for the little people during their first eight or ten years, when they are just beginning to learn life's lessons, and when the laws which govern them must often seem so strange and unjust The child has aright toa place of his own, to things of his own, to surroundings which have some relation to his size, his desires and his capabilities. How should we like to live half the time in a place where the piano was twelve feet tall, the door knob at an impossible height, and the mantel shelf in the sky; where every mortal thing was out of reach except a collection of highly-interesting objects on dressing- tables and bureaus, guarded, however, by giants three times as large and powerful as ourselves, forever saying, "Mnsn't touch," and if we did touch we should be spanked, and have no other method of revenge save to spank bock symbolically on the inoffensive persons of our dolls? The child problem is merely one phase of the universal problem that confronts society. "Let the history of domestic rule typify in little the history of our political rule; at the outset autocratic control, where control is really needful; by and by an incipient constitutionalism, in which the liberty of the subject gains recognition, extensions of this liberty of the subject (frad- uallyending in paternal abdication." We must not expect children to be too good. Intellectual and moral precocity produced by stimulation will be at the expense of the future character. In these matters the child has a right to expect examples, He lives in the senses, he can only learn through object lessons, can only pass from the concrete examples of goodness to a vision of abstract perfection.—Jenness- Miller Monthly. The Production of Artificial Silk. Experiments with vegetable-pulp have demonstrated the feasibility of silk-making by machinery. At no distant day the silkworm will find her occupation gone, and in place of the cocoon we will have enormous spools of silk drawn directly from pulp. Vegetable fiber is made into collodion, and is then forced through finely perforated metal plates. The slender threads that issue are at once submerged in wuter. This takes up the volatile elements of the collodion and hardens the threads, -which become elastic and solid. The filaments are so fine that it requires nearly a dozen to make a thread that can be handled with safety. Extreme fineness is necessary in order to give the required softness and flexibility. With this comes a degree of brittleneas that makes the product frail almost past handling.. When machinery of sufficient delicacy can be invented to carry and manage these tiny lines without breaking them, we may be able to engage in silk-making as readily as in paper making, and with quite as satisfactory results. Experiments have thus far been made with perfectly successful result* in all particulars save the one noted.—N. Y. Ledger. Freito, Jonesey— Say, Brownie, can you let me have two - .
