to the coal hill mortuary, with all its
'pomp and splendor, was nothing short
of. the grotesque.
For -a week tho body of tho dead
emperor rested In Btato In the room
lathe palace reserved especially for
that purpose by the Chinese court. Be
fore, his remains could be removed the
law1 demanded that every piece or his
personal property must be destroyed.
Priceless silks, furs, gems, art works
of which tho emperor was intensely
fond during his life, were assigned to
the flames. This was done at the cost
ctf a fortune, wblio the destruction of
the vast personal-effects of the Dow
ager empress will entail an expendit
ure of doubly as much.

In her palaco. two days ago. '
The funeral observances wero no
table for a Btrango admixture of an
cient Chineso custom with western
forms and practices, a fact that shows
the progress mado in recent years ot
modernizing tho system of procodure
for Imperial Interments handed down
from uygouo generations.
The fact that many of tho old gro
tesque funeral forma that have been
observed for centuries1 wero today lg
nored as utterly unsultod to modern
conditions has "brought out much local
criticism of the government, but In
splto of this tho throne has ordered
the grand council to consider another
memorial looking to tho alteration of
existing funeral observances to con
form to modern methods.

Poultry Raisers Have a New Way of
Providing Food for Chickens.
Morocco, Ind. Farmers near hero
have a new dovlco in connection with
tho raising of poultry. It is called the
"oat incubator." The outfit Is simple
and original, consisting of a number of
crates, ono above tho other, with nine
laches of space between. On the bot.
torn of each crate layers of burlap are
placed and on the top crate water Is
poured each morning. Tho water soaks
the oats and then drops from, one
crate to tho other. Under the Influ

and grow rapidly, the green, tender
shoots making excellent food for chick

who havo tried the '.'oat incubator" are
enthusiastic in Its praise.

Guy Stearns of Ottumwa, S. D., and
Miss Sadie Austin, were the principals
in a romantic double woddlng,whlch

grooms are cousins. Tho wedding fol
lowed a midnight Journey from the
extreme southern part of Lyman coun

appears tho two young men were vIb
Itlng tho slstors, and during the eve
ning made the daring Jes that tho
sisters had not tho nervo to accom

and be married. The sisters galled the
bluff, accepting the dare, and the four
started out at onco on the long and
dangerous Journey to Oacoma, arriving
at that placo at three o'clock In tho
morning. The great difficulty and dan
ger In making the crossing ot White
river In the darkness added zest to tho
occasion. After their arrival at Oacoma
there was a tedious wait for The. clerk'
of courts to appear and Issue the
necessary license. After this was se
cured the services of Rev. N. H. May
were engaged and the marriage; cere

This revlow should cover Tho wholo
period of our six months' study.
The limln facts should bo hold In
tha tnomory ns a basis of tho Instruc
tion tho history is lntendod to loach.
Tho great valuo of history Hob In
tho light It sheds on tho great princi
ples of truo llvhig. "History Is phil
osophy teaching by examples," said
DlonyBlus of HallcarnaoBus, nnd
Carlylo calls It "Philosophy teaching
by exporienco." Tho Bible history Is
fnr moro to us, tor It is a divinely
gutdod revelation of God's principles
and plans ot dealing with men. But
it Is to bo Been and 'studied in tho
light of its own times nnd circum
stances. A review Is a fitting lesson for tho
closing sabbath of tho year, bidding
us look carefully at tho trend and tide
of our own lives, learning whnt to
avoid and. what to cherish, whnt to
repent of and what to glvo thnnkB for.
Thus shall tho past illumlno tho path
of tho future; ovlls ropentod of shnll
bo lighthouses on tho hidden rocks;
and work well dono and victories
gained shall be favoring gales toward
tho"rort of oternnl life.
