A MODERN MAUSOLEUM.
Tlio civilized world lion como to acknowl
edge that tho burial of ltd dond In tho bosom
of mother earth, particularly In or near com
munltlos of tho living, lion serious objection.
Tho only other method of disposing of tho
dead that has attracted general attention Is
cremation, but it is repugnant to tho toolings
of humanity and has not received much suls
stnntlnl enourngement, A now manner of
burial Is now being agitated in tho east, and
its discussion offers so much of novelty and
interost that tho Coumkh feels justified in
giving up considerable of its spaco to an nrtl
clo on tho subject.
Rev. Charles E. Treat, rector of tho Church
of tho Archangel of Now York, is ouo of tho
principal champions of tho now movement.
Ho is working for tho erection in Now York
of a great mausoleum, or "Campo Santo," for
tho sanitary entombment of tho dond, and
tho illustrations accompanying this nrtlclo
will givo n fairly clear Idea of some of tho
features of tho structure proposed for Now
York. In a recent lecture beforo u learned
Brooklyn body Mr. Treat covered tho subject
of burial thoroughly, and tho CouitiKimeces
wxrlly condenses his paper to bring It within
tho limit of ft nowspnpor nrtlclo. In tho early
Christian centuries, as In tho centuries pro
ceding, nmong men of nil religious beliefs nnd
practices, tho conviction, both instinctive nnd
founded on oxerIouco, prevailed, that tho
dead should not bo brought into proximity
with tho living. Accordingly tho practice
definitely demanded by tho "Twelve Tables"
becamo universal, not to bury within a "city"
or any group of human habitations. The first
step In tho wrong direction teems to havo
been taken nt tho dying request of tho first
Christian emperor, who was Interred nt tho
entrance of tho Church of tho Holy Aiwstlcs,
in Constantinople. The tendency, however,
to follow this example, and to secure similar
interment In holy eat th, was stubbornly ro
slsted; and It was not until tho latter part of
tho sixth century thnt burials were ermlttcd
within towns or cities, and it was not until
the nineteenth century that burials were per
mitted In churches. From this tluio tho cus
tom continued without notable interference,
until tho latter part of tho Inst century, Then,
in that era of tremendous chnngo.tho church
yard did not escape. In Tnrls, the church
yard of tho Church of tho Holy Innocents
was first condemned In the Interest of the
public health, becnuso much sickness had been
traced to tho foul stenches that rote there
from. Other churchyards in l'aris were also
condemned. Mr. Treat goes on nt length to
show that in London and in Now York tho
evils of earth-burial were present us in Paris,
lie then undertakes to show thut graveyards

oro brooding-beds for disease germs, nnd
(motes a numtier of learned nuthorltles. One
will sulllco hero. Sir Henry Thompson has

anthrax, or Bplenlc-fover, stmres from which
nro notoriously brought to tho surfaco from
burled animals below nnd become fatal to tho
herds feeding there, it is now almost certain
that malarious diseases, notably lloman-fover
and even tetanus, aro duo to bacteria which
flourish in tho soil itsolf. The ixilsons of scar
let fover, cntorlo fovor (typhoid), smnllpox,
dl)therla, nnd mnllgnnnt cholera aro un
doubtedly trnnsmlssiblo through enrth from
the burled body."
Is thoro no alternntivol Mr. Treat answers:
Yes, military entombment. Ho relates how
tho ancients In many cases buried their dead
in tombs, nnd says it only remains for tho
modern world to umko entombment sanitary
to solvo tho problem of tho best burial. Ho
asserts that entombment Ims been mndo snnl
taty in ninny lands and through long jieriods.
Tho two best known methods aro embalming
and desiccation. Ho maintains that we can
In this day emlmlm ns successfully ns tho
Egyptians, but ho dismisses thnt method ns
repugnant. Desiccation, In striking contrast
with embalming, is tho process of naturo
rather than of art; and Involves no mutlht
tlon and no substitution of foreign substances
for human flesh. Desiccation is so far a tint-

thought of, until iiaturo hud dono tho work
and shown tho product; and through many
centuries, and Uon nn extensive senlo.nnturo
had employed tho process before It had xv
currod to man to copy her, nnd ndopt her
method for tho dlsixwltlou of tho denl.
Whei over tho nir that enwrapped thn life
less form of man or lcnst was dry, doslcc.Ulnn
nntlclpnted nnd prevented dccomixwitioii. In
deserts, uK)ii elevated plains, iikiii tho sloxw
of lofty mountain ranges, to which tho
winds that passed their summits boro no
moisture, ttio dead hnvo not decayed, but
have dried undocomposod. In tho morgue
attached to tho Hospice of St, Ilcrnnrd, tho
dead, lifted too late from their shroud of
snow nnd borno thither to await tho recogni
tion of friends, dry and do not decay. In tho
"Catacombs" of tho monastery of the Capu
chins of Palermo, and In the ''Dlelkcller" nt
Ilrcmen, tho name phenomenon haH npxared.
Upon thp elevated western plains of this con
tinent, tho bodies of lxjnsts and men, by
thousands, have been preserved from decom
jiosltion by desiccation. In Peru tho dead
are found in uncounted numbers, testifying
thnt In their death they did not injure tho
living, becnuse desiccation saved them from
decomposition. All theso Instances furnish
conclusive proof that decoinnnHltlnii t. u.
cuiuiuiimi, aim mat iw loatlisomo and un

if only tho simple conditions are secured that

added to it or taken from it; and the extrac
tion of the moisture from a nortion of Hn nt.
mosphero Is all that is required to Introduce
the process of Peruvian desslcntlon into the
sepulchres of Chicago or New York.
The men interested in tho now mausoleum
movement havo made oxierimouts to prove
that decomiKMltlou can bo prevented nnd des
iccation controlled, and that prolonged pros

Tho Presbyterians who hnvo moved Into

of Mrs. Welwr. The iiu'inliora of the mother

thnt this effect was nppnrent rather than real,
for tho singer showed signs of embarrassment.

Sho showed her versatility by linXTsonntlng

ity rather than rubuta. It Is ono of those
exquisite voices full of soft, tender tones and
iH'iiutlfully sweet modulations; a voleo for
tongs of lovo or songs of sadness, full of sen

the doctor has given very little or no atten

college his voice was noted In tin Institution
likely to bring iimny goisl voices together,
but since taking up the study and tho practice
of his profession he has done very little sing
