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, ;Jw.171-pn, lSfc:irCS rmtzB igl "CAMI'O HANTO" 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 i!aBlr5HHHhr .,to-.-. ft&M"g3y.taMS.. kMH9Hb-c oro brooding-beds for disease germs, nnd (motes a numtier of learned nuthorltles. One will sulllco hero. Sir Henry Thompson has said: "I state, ns n fact of tho highest linxjrt anco, that, by burial In earth, wo effectively provldo whntover Military precautions aro taken by ventilation and drainage, whatever disinfection Is applied after contagion has oc curredthat tho pestilential germ, which havo destroyed tho Ixxly in question, aro thus so treasured nnd protected us to propagate and multiply, ready to reappear and wovk iJb 'Sr'mzlcj5 PIlOl'OSKI) "CAMI'O HANTO" KOIl NKW YOIIK.

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 INNEIl COUUT. 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- iw--!:3BBBp'-n2r--iBBBDk" tdfe!StlELV-l iV.iWIllgSSwrgS. Lincoln.

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 wholesomo transformations can Ik preveutCMl, if only tho simple conditions are secured that havo already so extensively eirectcd this re sult. Thnt theso conditions can buseciircl no ono can doubt; lor, every dny, in nluiOht overy cllmo, by processes fntnlllnr and avail able to man, tho atmosphere has moisture 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 ervatlon. with n fair nnnrnzliiuit inn t tl.,. appearance In life, can be made sure, for the recognition of absent friends, for trnnsortu tlon, or for tho furtherance of tho ends of justice.

Tho Presbyterians who hnvo moved Into thecaxt end of tho city aro working bravely for the upbuilding of n new church In that quarter.

The com pany Insisted on an uncoro from thulr favor Ito. Mr, .Innnw lleynnrd wing "Tell her I love her so" ur a tenor plire, lllo voice np pea red to Ixi rather of n baritone (piallty.nnd sovernl passages seemed to hnvo Ikmjii written too high for him. It Is probable, however, thnt this effect was nppnrent rather than real, for tho singer showed signs of embarrassment. Ho was a memlx'r of the Andrews oHrn com jwiny, nnd has sung In the Presbyterian church choir, but that Is quite different from lxlng projected into the middle of nnnudlenco anntn parlor musical, Mr. Heyunrd has n voice or good quality and is too sensible to de liberately select it song beyond his coiiihim. Mrs. V. 8. Hutrmnu gnvo variety to tho pro gram with u reading. Hho liiiM.rsonnted n vngalxmd alternately talking Hi his dog nnd telling his pitiful stery to an auditor. Hho recited with ease nnd expression, nnd tho management of her voice wns particularly notable. Hho slinulntod a baritone voleo nud produced tour surprisingly rich us well ns masculine. At tho request of the niidlenco she Huhseqtioutry read "Love In thoKltchou." Sho showed her versatility by linXTsonntlng Ixith mnlu nnd femulo, Ixsldes assuming a brogue. Miss Florence Ilrown (bettor known to ninny as "Chlo") made her public debut by singing "lirlght Stars of Lovo" with a violin obllgntD by Prof. Wuber, At tho nuUet tho slngor gnvo evidences of n timidity very iniurai miner inn circumstances, but toward tho end of her number regained her self-pos-session nnd wing with udmlrable composure. The nudlcnco gavo an entliuslnstlo encoro, Miss IJrown rwM)tided with "Little Ilrown Eyes." Hho sang without visible embarrass ment, and the snlwtlnn riirrlral luir vl,. I,.( Its upjx-r register with a most gratifying re sult. Ml s Ilrown hns u inoi-.o-Miprnno voice of good depth, quality and compass. Itlslx? Ing trnliied by Mrs. Weber and tho friends of tho cliarnilng young vwallst were delighted with the admirable results already nehievMl. Prof. Weber's violin solo was heartily en cored, and ho waB followed by n piano iiuin 1k)i from Chopin by Mrs. llov. Ilrndt. Tlio progniui clostxl w Ith u song, "Ixivo's Sorrow," by Dr. K. L. Holyoke. Although sulTerlng from ii severe cold, the singer wns recalltl with enthusiastic demonstrations. Dr. Hol yoke hns that rare thing, thnt gift of tho gods: u pure tenor voice. It is lyrical In qual 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 timent nnd of expression. Hlngulnrly enough the doctor has given very little or no atten tion to music ns u student. Whilo nt Iowa 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 ing in public. For u long time he hns Imvii heard only ocenslonly m smnll gntheiliigs.but the managers of future musical entertain ments should not overlook him.

Tholr voices blended harmoniously nnd tho number was much enjoyed. Subsequently Mrs. Dennis sang a soprano solo, "Tlio Onrden of Sleep." Despite some timidity sho sang with sweetness and expression, nud her voleo wns greatly ndinired. Mrs. Dennis has n host of admirers, but few of them have had tlio pleasure of hearing her flno voleo In music, at lenst in public. Sho is such a charming woman one cannot repress a wish to see and hear her often, Later In tho program Miss Ilrown sang two solos, "Hrlghtstnr of love" and "I lovo thee," besides encores, and she confirmed tho tlntteis Ing impression mode nt Mon lay evening's muslcnl, mention of which is made elsewhere. Miss Ilrown is preeminently a Lincoln girl nud n Lincoln singer. She wns born in this city, nud, with the exception of n short period of study In Iloston whllo at the sea. shore lust miiiuiicr, nil her training lias ixxm received in thin pltv. I.lnmlti tvnln nu il.,.v como to hear her singing, will no doubt teku seclal pridw In her excellence. A particularly line iiuuuxx was a trio, mo soprano by Mrs. Welfcr. thotennr hv Mr .Tfitmm llnvmirt i.ti.t tho Iwrltone by Hov. K. II. Clinpin.

On this ix-ciislmi tin. tnnirnilv sulxirdlnated herself, singing only In the trios nun assisting others as uecouipitniit. Miss Aimeun i-nrKor coutribuuol muterlally to the program by reading "Peggy In her low buck car," nud had to respond to mi encore. Miss Parker has an nttructlvopriwneo with bright laughing eye ns not the least of Its attributes, Her selections were short, probnbly bocotiiMi of n severe cold, but she quite won the au dience. The first selection had n metre and it rhyme that mndo It imxsnible to avoid u bit of sing-song Intonation, but tho rrador gave nn exquisitely rich nud unoxiiggerntid brogue nnd displayed n Hue voice under ndmirnhlo control, In her encore, n little ditty about "Kitty one morning wns tripping," the rend er had a greater variety of expression nnd met the requirement tieniitlfully. Miss Park er's win k was it treat to those who bad not heard her Ixifore, and It left one wlthn strong deslio to see tier In more ambitious eirorts. Prof. Weber closed tho program with nsluin 1st song on the violin, Much Is oxxted of tlio professor nud ho filled oxxxtntlon, Ixilng honrtllv encored.
