Spearman, In the April Forum In every great city the poor live by tlic worldly vanities of the rich. In Paris thoy die in the Mime vAy. It is the manufacture of innumerable superfluities which makes ur> the bulls of the Industries of the working elusses. The Ifrcnch capital has developed an in .'jrenious system by which the poor arc furnished with a free burial at the ex- pernio of the "pride, pomp, undcircum stance" whiah Dives considers his due on the road to the tomb. One of the largest, best managed, and most profit able industries in I'aris is that of the l'ompes Funebres, the gigantic monopoly which alone lias the privilege of transporting the dead through the Streets of I'aris in funeral style. It possesses undertakers' material to the Tahico'f over four millions of francs, does some six millions a year of business, and turns over nearly two and li half millions of this as clear profit to ltd accredited owners, the church es tublishraent of the city, after gratuitously and decently burying some three Out of every five of the dead as indi gent subjects. Each country and each age have their own fashion of disposing of their dead, from the Patagonian who makes •'lion meat" of his spouse back to the ancient Koman with his ancestral urns. Taken all in all, perhaps there is no more reasonable arrangement than that of the thrifty Parisian who manages to have each disposal of the dead carried out "decently and in order" through the exploitation of a love of lavish display in a minor portion of the community. One fiecs nothing of the ghastly side of the undertakers' work in visiting the vast premises which have been recently devoted to the use of the Pompes Func Tires, away out in the extreme north oast of Paris, in La Vilotte. There we found only "the trappings and the suits of woe," the materials for the fu neral corteges. Take it altogether, ramble over the establishment is on of the most interesting sights of the cIVv- Not Much Better. If ooo makes » slip of tho tongue, through embarrassment or hasto, it i3 •' generally best to-let it go rather than call attention to what tnight otherwise have been almost unnoticed. A young clergyman, nowly settled over a largo parish, had occasional lit: of embarrassment when standing befor his congregation. One Sunday, after reading a notice of a woman's missionary meeting to be hold • in tho chapel u t ow days later, ho en deavored to add a special appeal of his own for a large attendance. After stating that it was to be a meeting of grout interest and importance, he suid, "Wo, tho womon of this congrega tion" With a flushed countenance he Btopped and retraced his steps. "Wo, who are tho women of this con gregation," he began. This was no hotter, and he beat blushing retreat by saying, "Lotussing the 401st hymn."—Youth's Companion A Reputation to Maintain.

April 1.— Authentic reports of the terrible prairie fire of yesterday arc coining in slowly. Instead of iK'ing one fire there seem to have been at least H dozen. The one doing tho most damage started on the Prairie Dog, alxmt sixty miles south of here, commencing Sunday night about 8 o'clock and reaching the Kansas lino at 7 in the morning. Hy this time the wind was blowing a gale from the southeast. Messengers were started out from the Kansas border to warn the farmers of the approaching danger, and many were able by baek-flring to save their homes and .stock. The messenger arrived in MeCook only a few momenta before the lire reached the Republican river and was stopped in its work of destruction. Then' were many miraculous escape;- by the farmers who lived along the track of the flames, which covered a space, of about seven miles wide. A man ami a wmui-n started from Herndon. Kan., for MoConk, thinking that they would get in ahead of tho Humes, but when about live miles from this city they were overtaken'. They laid down in the bottom of their hnggy and the names passed over them, singeing their hair, and it was with difficulty that they kept their clothes from getting on fire. Their team was maddened by the flames and ran until nearly exhausted. Three farmers—A. Rogers, his son and a man named Stone—wens caught in a (taw and badly scorched. J. C. Dodge, a farmer living about six miles sonth of here, lost his house, barn and granaries, together with six head of cattle, which drifted up to a wire fence, where they were overtaken by the (lames. Four farmers, named 'Pothers, Armstrong, Famsworth and Hill, have been com pletely burned out. Many farmers have lost all of their possessions. As yet no loss of life lias been reported, though hundreds of farms in the devastated district are yet to hear from. A FAKMKR BUIINKII TO DEATH. NOKTOX, Kan., April 1. —A very destructive prairie lire swept over Noble and Highland townships of Norton county, yesterday, destroying an immense amount of property. Hundreds of families lost their all. William Dunn, in an attempt to save his property, lost his life. KKAOV FOR BUSINESS. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Meet* ami Elect* OtlicerK.

Tho night before he died he called for the old Hag, anil when a largo one was brought and hung in his room h n . tried to give three cheers for "Old Glory," but he had not strength Buffi- dient to deliver the shouts.

SUICIDK AT ST. JOSEPH, MO. It Was JSvUlenlly Uelllierately Planned and Kxoeilteil—Throat Cut Prom Kar to liar. ST. JOSEPH, MO., April 1. —Tuesday night a stranger went into Moore's hotel and sutured a room, asking not to be disturbed. As he did not get up Mr. Moore went up to his room last night and found him lyiiu; on the bed in a pool of blood with his throat cut from ear to ear. The dead man is Frank Johnson, of Logunsport, Ind. The method of his suicide was very peculiar. Ho first removed his clothing and hid it under a' bed at the opposite side of tho room. Then be spread a quilt under his bed and lying down on it cut his throat. After he had nearly bled to death he crawled out ami tumbled into tho bed where he was found. lie had quite a sum of money on hiB person and letters left indicated that family trouble was the cause of the act. .

Dustln, assistant United States treasurer at Chicago, expired at 1»:30 yesterday, passing away in a peaceful sleep without a struggle or giving evidence of pain. Consciousness was restored In What Gen. Stanley Says About Mexico's Revolutionary Leader. WASHINGTON. April 1. — Urig.-tScn. D. >S. Stanley, commander of tho department of Texas, is in the city for a, few days. Ho is a candidate for the appointment as governor of the national soldiers', which position is now vacant. He has been interviewed regarding the recent revolutionary movement in Mexico under tlarza, whom he characterizes :ts""a conceited but brave revolutionist." Continuing, he suid: "Garza really thought he might succeed iu getting control of the Mexican government. Other men had, with a small following, succeeded, and why not he? lie was ambitious and brave. It has been stated that Garza was a coward. This is a mistake. His mettle has been tried several times. He was shot through the bowels about two years ago in an niVruy. Diaz, the present president of Mexico, organized his forces just in the same section thtttGar- za did. His band at lirst was nostrong- er. Garza had about 1,100 men on his rolls, but only about 355 active men. The Mexican government had no fears of his success, however. President Diaz has been a revolutionist himself and knew how to deal with such fellows. He was not alarmed. Still Garza's outbreak had a damaging effect upon the finances of Mexico. Government bonds dropped, and it was impossible, as expected, to negotiate certain bonds in Holland tobujld a railroad which had been begun. It also prevented the sale of Texas lands which would probably have been sold before this. Garza is in hiding near Palito Blanco, the home of his father-in-law. This portion of Texas is very sparsely settled and covered with chapparal and cactus. The chapparal is a low undergrowth, but the cactus is often 10 feet high. It is a wilderness, and it is impossible for a man secreted'in this wilderness to be found. Gonzales, his father-in-law, furnished the money to back his ambitious relative, and I think it will wreck his fortune before he gets through with the business. "Among the papers of Garza captured by our troops was an autobiography, lie had all his plans mapped out, too. as to what he would do after he got possession of Mexico. He had made all sorts of promises to his men, and held out alluring official positions to them. On the roll of his men are thirty-five escaped felons, men who would die rather than be captured. One of these, a desperate fellow by the name of Hamon, killed four men in a street fight in Mexico. He shot or stabbed one man in an affray and then killed three more persons. Such fellows as these we like to get hold of. The laborers, who were said to have been confederates of his, and who have gone back to work, we did not bother. We only had three skirmishes with Garza's men. These did not amount to much. They would lire, into our troops and then run. Only one of our officers was killed and I think we have the man who killed him. lie was eapt- tured with the officer's pistol on him. As long as Garza remains where he is 1 do not think he cau be captured. The chapparal and cactus I spoke of are so dense that is impossible to get through with one. of our "big cavalry horses with out dismounting and fcading your horse. The first, suits of uniform my men wore down into that country were torn to pieces by thorns. Now I do not apprehend any further trouble from Garza, but it will be necessary to keep a few squadrons of cavalry there, or he might break out again, llow do the soldiers stand it on the border? Oh, they enjoy it. They like an active outdoor life, Though colder than usual for that sec tion, the weather was mild. The hunting is good, too, and some of the men have had fine sport. The summers there, however, are very hot, aud I fear tile boys will not fare so well." An Uil .tcountalile Suicide. LEXISOTOX, . Mo., April 1. — Mrs, Frasier, the wife of a wealthy farmer Luslen Frasier, living at Corder, eighteen miles southeust of this city, shot herself through the heart with her husband's pistol at 0 o'clock yesterday morning. No cause for suicide can lie imagined, as a moment before she had spoken iu the pleasautest manner to her husband. It is generally believed in Mexico that the. scheme of England to get a coaling station in Lower California has failed. Matilda Stevens, aged 40, a well to do colored woman of Little Kock, Ark. died under mysterious circumstances in great pain and with spasms. She took a powder from a bottle labelled "quin ine." '__ The house went into committee of the whole when it met yesterday on the free wool bill and Mr. Hrosius, of Pennsylvania, spoke in opposition. Gratifying results with smokclesH powder have been obtained at Washington. Tlie fast racing stallion, JSdwurd Kosewatur, 'J.-lGJi, is dead.

' In the case of White against Adkins; when the evidence for the plaintiff was all in, the defense demurred, nnd the court has taken the matter under advisement for decision on the demurrer. The case of Malliek against Jones was taken up this morning, and is still on trial to a jury. This is an action in replevin, and the attorneys arc Whiteside & Gleason and Davidson & Williams. The next case to come on for trial is the ease of Seth llurdick against tho Hutchinson Packing company. The court will be presided over by a pro tcm judge next week on account of Judge Martin having been interested in the cases which are coming on for trial. It had been decided to have Jndge Clark from Sterling, but he is unable to come. It is not yet determined who will sit. A. A. Kichards of Wellington was looking after some court matters to- doy. Ice House Gone. Swcariuger's ice house was one of the objects upon which the wind tried its force last night with great effect. The. building was demolished, and parts of it scattered to the four winds of the heavens. Work of reparation has been going on all day to save the ice. Attention, Sir Knights.

Wholesale <iallantry, Wo must all do good in this world according to our natural endowments and the opportunities afforded us. Tho other day I was riding in a comfortably filled street car when there enteral threo young won-en dressed in tho narrow sheath skirls of the period. A jolly, portly old gentleman got up to givo one of the pretty girls a seat, which sho took with » gracious ncknowledgmont. She seemed rather lost, howover, in thu generous space vacated by tho Pick­ wickian framo of the old gontleman, BO sho moved along far enough to let ono of hor companions share tho boneflt. Now whother the passengers crowded togother imperceptibly, or whatcvoi may have happened, the two slendoi young women did not jot take up the whole seat, and the third blushingly squeezed into what was left of it. By this time the other people in tho cm were too much amused to conceal thoii Bniiles, and tho old gentleman himselt was one vast glow of satisfaction.
