which has just arrived here. He was in

that the Corean government makes the
special request for his retention as minis

Tcvvn lnpiicatcd In tho
SriUNGFiiii.D, O., Jan. 27. An exten
sive and systematic coal steal Ims been
discovered at Baiabridge, Fnis county,
Ohio, a small town on tli-j Ohio Southern
railroad. A carload of coal would at
times disappear in a single night r.nd the
peculations became so extensive tint tin
railroad company employed detect: vis to
unearth the thieve.-. The result has been
the arrest of liftc-en prominent citizens of
Bainbridge, ineluding the r.inihal, a
hotel proprietor and a Presbyte inn
preacher. Tfce detectives say that half
the citizens of the town rj implicated in
the steal. The peculations amount to
many hundreds of dollars and their ex
tent may be imagined when it is known
that although coal is universally used in
Brainbridge, not a singls carload h:is
been billed to a resident of that place

Vt'Jwo the death has occurred tho women
rush 011 t; the- Hat roof or someother conspic
uous piaee, where they rend the nir with
their cries, tear their hair and ivo way to
unbridled rief. Tho town crier is sent
round to unnouuee the fact to the neighbors
aa-1 to summon friends to the death wv.il,
which takes place an hour or two after tho
spirit has left tho body. After the body lias
been washed hi wine it is laid outon a bier la
the center of the one roomed house, arrayed
in the ! eeaseds best clothes, decked out with
iio'.vcrs, and with lamps burning at the side,
reminding us of the ancient custom of placing
the corp-o thus in the midst of tho hall,
drcs:vd in as handsome i robe as tho family
co:i!d a!foil, i:i order, according to Lueian,
that the dead may not be cold on tho passage
to hades end may not bo seen naked by Cer
berus: Then begins the ei-ath wail ceremony,
a seen;; cf heart rending Ri'iirf, such as took
place in Priam's palace over the dead body
These death wails are, in fact, one of the
most striking bonds of connection between
the Jleilemsm of the past and the Hellenism
of the present, and in the Greek islands, de
spite the strictness of the iiu.ro civilized
luembei-s of the orthodox church, they cling
to them v. ith surprising tenacity. A lxxly
whi.rh dies unlamenUi.-l cannot enter hades,
and wanders about like that of Patrocius
and Ilip.-nor in misery in the upper air,
neither belonging to the living nor to tho
dead. Consequently, the deai.il wails and
the burials take place as soon as possible
after death that tho gates of hades may bo
opened to them a-; soon as may bo.
From these death wails wo learn how much
that is hc-itheu is incorporated in tho belief
of today respecting an after life. The' sing

the dead wander forever, anxious to return
to the upper air, and endeavoring to steal
