But the-custom of 1,500 years is not easily overcome nmd the medieval'pr'ajud'iae against cremation still remain.^. . • ...,,. It was notuntilthfi latter half of. the present century thot the agitaion in favor of consigning the corpse to the flames began. Jacob Molcsehot.t, the Dntch-Itnlinn ncientisi. was tlie apostle ,of the riiovtmetit. Progressive m?n in Italy took up his c;iuse nnd in 1870 the : first-crematory of modern times, i. e.. In Christum countries, WHS put intoopern- tiori at'Milan.' Later "in the Kaine'year n crematory was.built ut Washington, Pa., nnd a third at Gotha, Germany, in: 1878. . :••'•' \ Since then -the movement has grown rapidly. The United States Is the fore-most champion, with. Italy a close second. Cremation' societies have-been founded in nearly every, country of .the globe. In the United States there are' over-20 such societies, and a class paper, published in Chicago, Park and Cemetery, devotes a portion of each issue to the subject; A cremation is.no such hideous spectacle as one rhiRht irongine- in fact, its association:? are not near us gloomy as ,those of the earth burial. When the fu- 'rieral procession arrives nt the crematory, the cd-ffin -is first taken into the chapel and placed upon a bier. If so, 'desired, a final ceremony to correspond to'tbat at-the graveia performed, and then .the'.bier "bearing the coffin .is ^lowered by. a hydraulic system to the floor below.

The: columbarium is a large stone building whose .inner walls arc' iiideuted wiUi 600 niches in which tlie unis may be Kept; Thus the sentiment which demands some token of remembrance oi the deceased is- satisfied by the return to an ancient and poetic custom.

'From! 1876 to 1S84 there was but'oiie crematory in the United States,then a second was built at Lancaster, Pa and a third-at New York. The -.tw'enty-secpnd hasgust been completed at Milwaukee.

Thereraxe three the most outrageous abuses. It is but a few venrs ago that the English government found a. large district in a Lon-lon cemetery filled with 14 layers of coffins, packed side by side, one generahon directly on top of .the other, with just enough soil to4ntervene so that the relatives of the last arrival could not detect the fraud. It has been estimated that 47,000,000 people die annually, nnd that ittakes.21 square miles to bury them. Twenty- one square miles a year are thus taken from the living, nnd the country within a radius of half a mile is mode practically uninhabitable. • .. - E. T. GUNDLACK. HUMOROUS^ BURGLARS.
