' INTERRED WITH JIU.ITAKY 11OXOHS. ST. Louts, Feb. 11.—The last .taps have been sounded, the buglers have trumpeted a final farewell and William Tecumseh Sherman sleeps with his kindred. Only the fresh-covered earth on a mound in Calvary Cemetery tells the story that the last of thai great triumvirate of American Gener- als,'whose'fame' is as imperishable as the Nation itself, has been laid at rest between the helpmate who, until.callec away, smoothed .and comforted his declining years, and "Little Willie," his idolized soldier laddie. General Sherman's desire that his obsequies should be of a military character was obeyed to the most extreme particular. But, at the same time, it was found Impossible to draw a hard and fast line that would prohibit the great mass of the people of the city in which he had spent so many years of his life and who at one time regarded him as its particular own from paying a last tribute of respect to his memory. So, something almost without precedent in a 1 strictly military funeral, two civic divisions were added to the procession and formed not tlie least impressive feature of the event. In the business center of the city there were no outward manifestations of mourning beyond the flags at half- mast and an occasional picture of the dead man, with its border of crape, in a store window, but out in the residence district which was traversed by the procession there was hardly a residence, poor or rich, that did not exhibit some token of sorrow and respect. A very large proportion of both men and women wore a memorial badge of white silk, with a picture of the deceased General and the date, fastened to their breasts by an American eagle festooned in crape. On the arrival of the train at the bridge at 8:50 a. m. a salute of seventeen guns was fired by a battery stationed on the levee, and a second salute was fired as the train was pulling into the Union depot. The crowds about the ;rain both in East St. Louis and at the Union depot in the city were' very large and were managed with' great difficulty by the police. When the train had come to a standstill it was boarded by a deputation of old comrades of Ransom Post, G. A. R., under the command of Commander H. L. Ripley, which, after relieving the guard, received the remains and mounted guard. The funeral party was received at the ;rain by Messrs. James E. Yeatman and Henry Hitchcock, friends of General Sherman's family, and a deputation of twenty-five citizens from the general reception committee. Most of ,he party remained on the train until ;he time set for the funeral, a deputa- ;ion from Ransom post, under Commander H. L. Ripley, mounting guard over the body. At 10:30 o'clock the regulars, commanded by General Wes- .ey Merritt, marched to the depot. • The coffin was tenderly ifted by members of Ransom lost and placed^ upon a caisson. Members of the family and the funeral escort were then ushered into carriages 3y the reception committee and fol- owed the caisson to Twelfth and Pine streets, where the procession was in readiness. The pagea'nt was made up n the following order: FIRST DIVISION. Brevet Brigadier-General James W. Forsytba, U. S. A., Colonel Commanding, Military Escort. Ransom Post 131, Department of Missouri, G. A. R, Clergy. Pall Bearers. Remains and Family of the Deceased. Ex-Presidents Hayes and Cleveland. Members of the Cabinet. • Members of Congress. Members of the United States Supreme Court.

Brevet Major- Scneral A; J. • Smith,' Brevet Major-General ohn W. Turner,. Brevet Major-General Wilard Warner,' Brevet Brigadier-General John W. BfTringer anttCommander Charles S. Cot' ••' ' muzeng — Judge Samile: Treat, Colonel George E. Laightou, Colonel Charles Parson, Byron Shermnn, Esq.. DanielR. Giirrtson, Esq.., Isaac H. Sturgon, Ks(i-. Thomas F. Tutt, EBO.-, K. P. Tatisey, Esq. From beginning- to end the procession was over three miles in length. And so the cortege slowJy wended its way to Calvary. With perhaps the possible -exception of the demonstration that accompanied the interment of the remains of Ulysses S, Grant, it was the most notable tribute to the memory of an American citizen that the country has ever witnessed. To Grand avenue; thence north to Florissant avenue, thence/west to the cemetery—was fully five and a half miles in length,but at no point was there a perceptible diminution in the unbroken line oi spectators. It seemed as though twice the entire population ol the city were on the streets; yet at, no point was there either disorder or unseeming levity. Every thing was ia keeping with the solemnity of the occasion. Minute guns were fired by •the battery, church bells were tolled as tha caisson passed by and the bands alternated the "Bead March in Haul" with other dirges and the old familiar "Marching Through Georgia" to slow time. f Jt was nearly '1 o'clock when the head of: the column reached Calvary. An immense crowd had already passed through, but a large force of police, had kept open the route to the grave and prevented intrusion upon the space required by the family. Outside the gates the cavalry and artillery deployed to tlie right and left. Gently the old veterans of the Thirteenth lifted the casket from the caisson and tenderly, with slow and measured tread, they bore it up the way of the First Dolor, through the Way of Bethany and to its crossing with the Holy Kosary. Here they laid it down upon a bier. Father, mother, son and babe were united in death. The bier had been placed directly in front of the grave of little Willie, who died at the age of 0 years, in 18G3. To the right was the grave of Mrs. Sherman, surmounted by a handsome monument; to the left that of baby Charles, who died in South Bend, Ind., inlS04, before his first year of life had passed., . The wind " whistled through the lifeless branches of the trees, but every head was bared 'and bowed as Father Sherman stepped to the head of tlie casket. The fortitude of his sisters deserted them at this trying juncture, and they gave way feebly to their grief in sobs and moans. The service performed by Father Sherman was very similar to that conducted b3 7 him prior to the removal of . body ;,fi-om the;, General's late residence in'JTew York, and when he had concluded the casket was gently Lowered by the survivors of his old regiment to their last resting place. Then were the military taps beaten and a bu- le sounded a last requiem, the earth was shoveled in, and all that was mortal of "Old Tecumseh'' had passed forever from sight. DICKERSON WILL DIE. Two Uttle Children Meet a'Terrihle Fate at Paris, Ind. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Feb. 21.—A special from North Vernon, Ind., to the Sfews says: A fatal accident has occurred near Paris, Ind. Two children of. Mrs. Curllack, a girl aged 9 months ind a boy aged 2 years, were playing near a tub of boiling water.

The Sacrifice of His Brother Masons ol No Avail—He Lacks Sufficient Vitality to Kiidnre the Strain Dpon His System. CHICAGO, Feb. 21.—John 0. Dickerson, a patient at the Emergency hospi-v tal, upon whom the experiment "'"' engrafting U4 square inches of human cuticle was performed Sunday, January 13, is dying. The self-sacrifice of 200 fellow Knights of St. Bernard Commandery, each of whom contributed his mite of skin, and the skill of Dr. Fenger and his assistants iave availed :him nothing. The experiment was apparently a success, the new skin seemed to have become part of ;he flesh, but his sj r stem could not stand the demands made upon it and le is gradually wasting away. Thft different- operations to which he las been subjected had necessitated ;he use of chloroform and other drugs to a large' extent. His stomach was unequal to the demands made upon it, and since Sunday he has Decn able to take little nourishment of any kind. Since Sunday the patient las been "unable to speak. He apparently has some consciousness of what is joing on in the room, and .many of his 'ellow-members think he has recognized ;hem, but lie has made no sign. He ies almost in a stupor and perfectly lelpless. SCALDED TO DEATH. EXTRAORDINARY BARGAIN!

NEW ALBANY, Ind., Feb. 21.—Nelson Pyle, aged 33 years, with a .wife and two children, was bitten, by a dog December 9, 1890. The. wound was a. clear incision, but healed so rapidly that Mr. Pj'le felt no uneasiness. Saturday last he complained of nervousness, and this nervous feeling continued until. Wednesday afternoon, when lie was seized • with slight convulsions. A physician was called and administered opiates. He slept well Wednesday night, but Thursday morning the convulsions returned much more seriously than before, and three physicians • were called. They were not long in diagnosing the case as one of unmistakable hydrophobia. From 'Thursday afternoon until his death at noon Friday the convulsions were almost continuous. They were accompanied by frothing at the mouth, snapping with the teeth like a dog, and trying to bite those who watched over and assisted him. It at times took four or five men to hold him in the bed. and they had to take the precaution of. covering their arms with heavy pieces of bed clothing to prevent him biting them. .. His sufferings were agonizing during the last twelve hours of his life, and no opiates could be administered to quiet or stu- ,pefy him on account of the steadily, recurring convulsions. This is , the only clearly defined case of hydrophobia that has occurred in this section. The Legislature.. , " " • INDI.VNAFOI.IS. Ind., Feb. 21. — The fee and salary bill again occupied the attention of the Indiana House nearly the whole of Friday, but there was less bitterness- in the discussion. Many changes .were made in the salaries of . officers of . different conntiesi. the majority of them being raised from., the :amounts first proposed. 'The 1 important question as io'. when the new law shall g-o into effect remains unsettled, but there will probably be a special bill on the subject. passed. The Senate .passed a bill which per- , mits the killing of any dog found off the premises of its owner, if there is believed to be good cause lor taking it» life. The purpose of the act is the ex- ^ termination of sheep-killing dogs;. which, it was stated, as shown' bj official statistics, cause annually a loss in Indiana of $135.000. Matle Crazy by Religion.
