In some parts ol India it is unnleas
ant for an elderly person to havo to
die. Along tho Ganges, when a man
is givon up as past medical power to
cure, nis relatives urag him to the bank
of the sacred river and plaster holy
mud into his cars, his noso and his
mouth. It is tho correct thing for him
to submit to this, lor tho mud is sup.

which, while helping bim out of this
world, gives him prospective lift for
the world to come, ilavinc half motb.
crca the dying man bis pious relatives
carry him to a placo where vultures
aro hovering around and awailinc- his
demise and that of such other persons
as may be left thore under similar cir
cumstances. These birds of prey main
tain a dignified and silent composure
until the invalid bus breathed his Inst
gasp. But the momont life has fled
they pounce on tbo remains of tho do
ceased and begin their meal, which
they conlinuo until nothing Is loft but
bones. Tbo Hindoo who thus places
his grondfulher in tba wav of beino-
disposed of considers that he has done
lor the old man tbo very best thing in
the world, and that this course of treat
ment will land the patient in tho
seventh heaven, or very near it.
This sort of funeral rito docs not ex
tensively prevail Id this country, for
public sentiment ia against il. and wo
aro short of vultures. A very near ap
proach however, is chronicled as oc
curring in Indiana, whoro a man lies
k with consumption. Dosnito all
the advertised nostrums and all tho
attentions ot. the regular fucully this
emaciated invalid is given ovor to
deutb It would be a kind and Chris
tian deed to let him die in peaco. But,
unfortunately, tho consumptive is in
sured, and as tho company insuring

a valuable piece of property. There
fore ho has not been carted off to tho
banks of tho Wabash to die a lonely
death, but instead ol thai ho has been
stolen and taken away from his wilo
to ino nomo ol his own bood rolutions.
These bloodthirsty poisons claim to
bavo an insurable interest in his life, or
rather in bis death. Thoy know that
in all human probability ho must die
very soon, and they want to mako out
of tho poor fellow whatever they can
as much, indeed, as there is in him.
Ut course there is a fight betwoen them
and tho man's wife. Hhe, too, has an
ni6uruuio interest in tbo remains, and
proposes to have her riirhts if sho can.
She has no idea of being swindled out
oi sucn a vaiiiaoio piece ol goods as an
insured husband. She has therofor.o,
in order to securo justico to herself,
brought an action at law against hor
husband's relations to compel them to
restore tho stolen properly. This is
stoutly resisted by the roluiionB who
nave possession. They say thoy will
see tho wile in a certain very hot place
before they restore the botly of the
almost dead invalid. Tbey consider
that thoy have aright to tho insured
property by reason of having in oilier
ways brought him in dobt to them.
The wife struggles loget possession of
him on a hubeus corpus, but thoy allege
that he ! now so fur gono that to cart
hitn over to whero tho wife lives would
only be to turn corpus into corpse.
Tbe battle rugos and the poor fellow is
made nervous over the annrehonsioii
ot oeing mauc a loot hall ol and tukon

havo luck in obtaining decisions, orders
anu injunctions Horn various courts.
Ho rottlixos that he is a person of con-
siderublo importunco. yet ho wishes ho
nau never seen that Ills insurance
policy which is thocuusoof his present
unsettled situation. It is sometimes
said of a man whoso position is poorly
deli tied that he does not know whether
or not bis soul is bis own. Wbatover
may bo the extent of this man's knowl
edge regarding the spiritual entity, it is
piaui mat oe cannot Know to whom
his body beloncs.
Sucb'a contest liko this over tho
body ol an almost expiring man ia
quite as disgracoltil as anything prac
ticed on tbe dying by the itnrogenerato
Hindoos. It would be a pleasant thing
to bear about tho timo this man dies
that llie company insuring him had
Should we say and write 'railroad,'
or 'railway?' A road, tho dictionary
informs us, is a place where one may
rido, an open track, a track for travel.
A way is a generic thing (on the sumo
authority), denoting miy line for pass
age of convenience. tiA highway was
originally a way raised on tho level fur
dryness. A road suy the dictionary,
ia nirieiiy a way lori uorsus and car
riages. In this couolry, and. annar.
ently, in England, Judging by 'the
King's highway' thi) word 'high' has
come to havo the sigtiillcanco of 'ooon'
and 'public,' and wlick wo spouk of be
ing -on tue nignwaw wo mean tbe
public and common rbud. But when
wo say 'in my way' (.very rarely 'road'
in-such sense), there appears to be a
common recognition i 'way' aa tbe
more generic worn. But in uso with
out a compounding wonl, 'way' is
rarely applied in tho Burnt scm) as
'road' thus, we do not speak walking
or riding 'along the way ; wo iy 'right
of way,' not 'road ;' nor is 'rotd' used
except in 'railroad,' which is tin Amer
ican term, as 'railway' is tho English.
a imw roaus we ao not say 'ways
which havo English ownership cr close
cuiinouiion, sucn as tne ttno aid At
lunlicand Groat Western, arootlcially,
railway, and this torm is pmbubly
making its 'way' slowly. It hat, how
ever, at least tbo comparative disad
vantage that, as yet, wo are not accus
tomed to 'ways' as short for railvays,
or to speak of tho 'waybed ;' on tbe
olher hand 'way' has an advanttgo in
not boing used to dusignato iistru
monts of passage by ordinary voliiclea.
Some other English terms are botior
than our own : lor example, 'shore' ia
better than 'stock,' the lutter laving
several uses. Tbo English coaob,' on
ruils, was obtained by transfer of word
us woll as article, but it is low ex
pressive than our 'car.' So 'stoker,'
although correct, is ralher less idiom
atie than fireman,' which ia mudo by
the samo process with which children
turn tbo gray coated 'carrier' ino 'loi
ter man.' The English 'point' is cer
tuinly belter than our 'switth' and
'driver, which in this country is short
lor the largo wheel when used in con
noclion with locomotives, is moro ex
act lhau 'engineer,' who is not much
more than an engine driver. 'Metals'
would sound strange here as the desig
nation of iron rails, and 'lino' would
hurdly cscapo detection as foreign, in
use lor ino -roaa or 'way.' T hero a
however, an English term so expressive
as applied lo capilul fixed in railways
and manufacturing enterprises, mi
it would bo well to tiulurulize it tbo
word 'plat.' Such capital may or may

DELPHIA. Tho Philadelphia Record my: Prof.
Haunt, of the University ol Pennsvl.
vania, read a paper on "Slroot Travel"
before tho Enginoers' Club on a recent
Saturday night. Ho stated that tho
population of what may ho called the
heart of the city, i. e., the district
notinilcd by tbo two rivers, Washing
ton avenue on tho south and Poplar
sued on ino norm, nuti decreased in
tho last 10 years by 20,000, showini?
strong drift of population toward tho
outskirts ol the city. Outside of these
limits, which aro everywhere dial ant
at least a mile from the business cen
tre, is a scattered population of about
unw.ouu. 110 took tho caso ot a man
whoso homo lay in a diagonal diroo
tion from his placo of business, and
calculated that in tho xigsag course
which that laiyo class of men must
tako thoy lose 40 per cent, in distance.
He suggested that two now diagonal
avenues bo opened. Tbo distunco sav
ed by a diagonal street through tho
heart of the city would bo a milo and
a third. 'Iho reports of six of tho
twelve passenger cai lines showed that
they bad carried during the past year
about 60,000,000 persons. Supposing
tho six remaining lines to have bad
about tho same numbor, this would
make a tolal number of passenger ear
ned of 100,000,000. Upon this and
the average yearly expense to the poo
plo of travel. Air. Haunt calculated
that evory milo lens in distance was a

Rbvision ornia New Testament
CoMPLErED Tho revision ot the Now
Testament, which was begun under
tho direction of the Convocation of
Canterbury ton years ago, waa com
pleted last October, and tho new ver
sion is now in print, although it has
nut yet boon given to the public. Tho
work is tho result of tho deliberations
ot twocommitteos, oniiof fifiv learned
Biblical scholars in England and one
ol thirty in this country. The two
commilleos did not meet together and
tako action, but corresponded with
each other and compared notes, and.
as a general thing, wero able lo agree
upon tho proper reading of tho texts.
In oases ot disagiooment, tbo text of
the British committee is used, but tbo
reading of tho American committee is
given in an appendix, so that tho
reader or student has before him both
translations. Tbo only copies of the
hook in this country, according lo tho
lYinet, aro thoso which have been sont
to members of tbo American committee,
of which tbo Rev. Dr. Philip SchafT is
tho President, and they aro pledged
not to show them to any person, or
give any information as to tho changes
mado in the texts of the King James
version, until tho now version is form
ally approved and adopted by tbo Con
vocation of Canterbury. Dr. Scbaff
announced that tho Convocation would
meet early in Eehruary, and as soon
as it approved tho version tho revised
New Testament would bo givon to the
world. The American committco bus
taken out no convriiht on tho honk.
and tho intention is to uivo it to tho
publio free, as the old Bible has been
givon. In a very few days at furthest,
il tho Convocation approves of tho re
vision, the book will bo published, and
overybody will then bo at liberty lo

These pleasing preparations for
household adornment may bo made
follows: Thore is a slow and quick
mothod, tbo former is by procuring
tho natural decomposition of the
pulpy subslunco of tbo leaf by ex
posuro to light in a dish ot water
the quick method is by the use of a
weak alkaline destructive solution, of
union soda ana lime aro the active
ogenls. By the slow mothod ono may
proceed as follows: Tho loavos are
laid nut smoothly in a pan or dish, and
covered wilb rain water two or throe
inches deep, and aro held down by
means of shoots of glass resting on
small stones at tho corner by which
they aro prevented from pressing too
closely on the leaves. They aro ox
posed lo the sunlight in a warm win
dow. In two or throe weeks they are
examined, and ull thoso that have be
come soft and pulpy aro romovod to
anoiner uisn lo he cleaned. The rest
aro loll until they, too, become soil.
Tbo softened leaves are carefully ro-
moveu one ny one uy being floated on
lo a small shoot of gluss; tbe pulp is
pressed out by means of a small stiff
painter's brush or a tooth-brush, used
by tapping up and down and not by a
sweeping motion, lb is breaks up the
pulp only, which is washed away by
pouring water upon it from a pitcher.
To mako this convenient, tho glass

rusting ou tho edges nf a deep dish
with a towel under it. to catch the
iho quick method is as lullows:
Four ounces of sal-soda are dissolvod
in a quurt of hot water, two ounces of
quicklime are added, and the two aro
boiled for twenty minutes. Tho solu
lion is cooled and strained. Tho leaves
aro then boiled in this for ono hour, or
until tbo pulp is easily removed, when
it is washed off as already montionod.
The fibres remain, leaving a perfect
sKcioion or iramo work ol the leaf.

that the fibres are not sollened too
much and thus injured. After bleach

upon a card and placed bolween soft

Crystahzod grasses and sprays are
mado as follows: The bunches are
first arrangod in a suitable manner,
tied and secured ; a solution of four
ounces ol alum lo a quart of boiling
water is mado, and whon this has
cooled lo about 90 degrees or blood
bout, tho bunch of grass or louves is
suspended in it in a deep jar from a
rod placed across tho mouth of it ; us

deposited upon overy spruy. the finer
and smaller tho weaker tho solution is
mado. This deposit of crystals occurs I
in me cooling liquid because hot water
dissolves moro alum than cold water,
and as tbo water cools tbo excess ol
alum forms crystals which attach them
selves to any fibrous matter in contact
with it moro readily than to anything
else. Thoso crystals onlargo by ac
cretion constantly, as long as there is
an excess of ulum in tho solution.
When the supply is exhausted tho
solution is wanned and more alum is
dissolved In it ; it is returned to tbe jur
and the bunch of grasses is replaced.

COMBS. The earliest works ol Christian art
in Italy aro tho wall-paintings of tbo
Ca'acombs. At first thoso wore merely
abstract symbols: tbe Labarum, the
Alpha and Omega, tho fish used as tho
sign for tho numo ot Christ. Then
moro pictorial emblems wero painted:
the dovo, representing tho Christian
soul freed Irom the body; tho peacock
or phoenix, type of immortality : tho
sheep, signifying the soul in tho earthly
no. iuis lust emblem stands in im
mediate connection with tbe earliest
representation! of Christ as tbo Good
Shepherd. This is the fuvoritcsubiect
of tho Catacomb paintings. Ho is de
picted as a beautiful youth in shop
herd's dress carrying a lamb on bis
shoulders, or leaning on his stall' in the
miast oi a nock, or playing on a shop
herd's pipo, whilo tho ahoep listen lo
uiiii. iud mea. oi tueso pictures is
certainly isimicul ; Put tbo artistio
form is supposed to bo taken from an
old Greek statue of Mercury carrying
a kid, which oxiotcd nt Tunugro. For
il must be observed with regard to tho
ait of tbe early Church that once hav
ing gained the right to exist, it adopt,
cd without hesitation materials and
forms which bad been invented by tbo
heathen. Proceeding on the principle
that what God hath cleansed man may
not can unclean, the (Christians repeat
ed in their religious pictures the types
of faco, the methods of expression, the
aritsiiu mannerisms, which aro found
in tho wull-painlings of Herculanenm
and Pompeii. They personified tho sun
and tba moon, tbe ourtb and the sea,
mountains and rivers. They even
adopted heathen myths. In a besttti
ful painting from tbo ceiling of the
tomb of S. Domitilla, Christ is repre
sented in the character of Orpheus
playing upon bis lyre, while trees bend
toward him, and wild beasts gather at
bis feet.
Mingled with these, symbols and
allegories wo find the first beginnings
of sacred historical painting. Tho sub
jects aro chosen impartially from both
Testaments, with this difference, that
tbe scenes Irom tbe Old are used in a
purely typical relation to the new dis
pensation. Noub in the ark typifies
the Christian saved in the ship ol the
Church ; tbo history of Jonah prefig
ures tho ministry and resurrection of
Christ ; Daniel in tbo lion's tlen is an
encouragement to Christian martyrs.
Tho most common New Testament
subjects aro, the Nativity ( with ox and
ass kneeling), tbe Adoration ol tbo
Magi, the miracle nt Cana, Christ heal
ing the paralytic, multiplying tho
loaves and fishes, and, most frequently,
tho raising ot Lazarus from the dead.
Lazarus is represented aaa mummy
appearing at an open door, beloro
which Jesus stands with a wand in
his hand.
