HIS OWN UNDERTAKER.
Henry Kresz Makes All Arrangements
for His Funeral.
From the Cincinnati Knguirer.
A funeral cortege wended slowly along
yesterday afternoon from No. 'JS4 Central
nvenue to Spring Grove Cemetery. To the
casual observer it didntt differ from other
grim funeral processions that daily wend
their way through the stri’ets bearing dust
to dust. To those acquainted with the cir
cumstances it was weinl, sad mid singular.
It was a funeral every detail of which had
been arranged beforehand bv the deceased.
The deceased was Henry JCre.sz, the pro
prietor of n large restaurant and saloon nt
Nos. 084 and ON. Central avenue. For the
past four mouths Kresz, who was a man 57
years old, and the father of grown children,
had been ailing and complaining, hut was
still 11 1>le to attend to bis daily business.
From the symptoms of his complaint the
doctors diagnosed liver complaint, presum
ably a tumor on the liver. The trouble
grew more and more aggravated, until some
days ago the attending physicians decided

“Bovs, have a drink with me; it may he the

in the silence of sad hearts, for Kresz was
popular among his acquaintances, and well
liked and esteemed by nil who knew him.

that tho diagnosis of the case had been a
correct one. The patient was suffering
from tumor on the liver. The operation
further revealed that to attempt to remove
the tumor would certainly prove fatal,
while to allow it to remain undisturbed
would as surely produce death within ton
days, at the very outside. They, of course,
chose the latter alternative. The keen
knives were sheathed, the oases of surgical
instrumental closed, and the patient was left
to the inevitable. He lingered, conscious
and clear of intellect, through Thursday

burial yesterday was just as the deceased
had directed it. Kresz leaves a wife and
six full-grown children.
JOSS STICKS ABOUT HIS GRAVE.
Extraordinary Obsequies of Lee Tong,
From the yew York HcraUi.
Mott street swarmed with mournful
Chinamen yesterday afternoon. One of
t heir numlter, and a prominent one, too, la v
dead in a neighboring undertaker shop
ready for burial. For an hour before the
funeral, which w as at 'J o’clock, sad-eyed
Mongolians doffed their hats at the shop
door, and trending on tiptoe, softly entered
to gdze on the face of Leo Tong, their de
fatted brother. Tong was a Freemason,
lie belonged to the Confucius Lodge, of
which he was official interpreter. He died
on Sunday ut No. 10 Mott street of con
The dead Chinaman was ntioiit 30 years
old, poor, hut popular, and was buried bv
the Luue Gee \ ee Tong, u society to which
he belonged. Tiie ceremony was peculiar
and interesting. It was the ancient
Masonic service, and full of all sorts of
queer but imposing observances.
STRANGE FUNERAL RITES. .
Sharply at 2 o'clock a chair was placed at
tile foot of the coffin, aud on it were laid a
quaint box of candies, two large and highly
ornamented candles, a how l of rice and
little teacups. Two fellow Masons squatted
down by the sides of the chair with an odd
looking’teapot, which they used to till the
Cups with as they were emptied by the
mourners. Two by two the friends of the
departed Celustiol, after bowing thr<>e times
to the coffin, knelt down, some kissing the
floor, and sprinkled tea alxnit a Targe
wooden dish that was placed in front of the
chair. Then they waved lighted joss sticks
until the whole room was full of the smell
of burning cedar.
One of the mourners in passing the head
of the deceased Chinaman w as observed to
drop a small coin into bis mouth.
The ceremony took up an hour. Then
the coffin, well packed with Chinese playing
can Is, was. after the dead man’s lips had
been moistened for the last time with tea,
declared ready for removal to Evergreens
Cemetery. Nearly UK) Chinamen followed
it there m carriages, scattering colored im
pers all the way to keep off the evil spirits.
Tlie interment was in a plot lielonging to

When the funeral had entered the ceme

three times mid uttering a low, wailing
noise, rose ouiekly and passed away.
During the services at the grave Chinese
candles were lighted, and, w ith hurtling joss
sticks, w ere left smoking on the newly made
mound. A fat, well browned chicken w*us
also deposited there, and the sward well

manner of the tmrtieipunts, impressed one us
being very solemn and picturesque.
HER PAPA BADLY SCARED.
And Miss Paturel Wondering What it
Was All About.
From the Sew York Time ...
A pretty and lively little French girl
caused more excitement in Fort Green
Place, Brooklyn, last night, than the resi
dents of that exclusive neighborhood have
experienced for some time. Harriot Future]
is her name, mid she is not yet is years of
age. Her father is Anton Frulerirk Paturel,
a wealthy wholesale druggist in Duane
street, New York. He hns a handsome resi
dence at I’JO Fort Green Place, where his
daughter and two sous, Henry and Freder
ick, live with him.
Some months ago Harriet made the ac
quaintance of a handsome young English
man named Henrv Fox, who was employed
in a Fulton street paint shop. He stands
over six feet in his socks, is broad shoul
dered, and has u slight drawl in Ins tones.
He began a correspondence with Harriet,
which she willingly continued until a few
d*y ago, when her father accidentally
found nnd read one of the tender missives.
In it he discovered a sentence which startled
him. It read as follows:
“i intend to take you to England, imr
darling, nnd there introduce you to my
mother, who will welcome you as her
Mr. Pnturel couldn’t stand that, so ho
sent for his daughter and forbade her hav
ing anything more to do with her English
lover. A strict watch was put upon her,
and it was found that she was meeting Fox
Last evening Harriet had arranged to
meet Fox again, and in order to prevent her
from doing so her brothers Henry and
Frederick undertook to amuse her. But
she proved more than a match for them,
ami 'luring the progress of a game of liide
nnd-seek she suddenly disappeared. The
brothers searched high and low, but with
out success, and finally appealed to the
police to aid in the hunt. Old Mr. Paturel
was terribly excite!, and felt certain that
his daughter had been married and would
sail for Europe on one of to-day’s steamers.
Inspector Reilly detailed Detective Halil
on the ease, and when he, with a swarm of
reporters in his wake, arrived within 100
feet, of the Paturel mansion ho found the
supposed runaway standing under a tree
talking to a girl friend. A most innocent
look Was on her face, and she quietly asked
if her brothers were very warm. Very
willingly she went home and contritely
kissed tier father. He thereupon opened
several cases of wine and made merry. The
house was thronged by neighbors who came
to sympathize and to gratify their curiosity.
Tlic heroine was the coolest person in the
room, and professed great ignorance of the
cntise of all the disturbance. She had not
seen Mr. Fox, she said, aud had not heard
from him for several days. In spite or this
denial Miss Harriet was seen in close com
munion, at the comer of Fort Green Place
and Hansom place, with a young man who
w as certainly not less than 0 feet 2 inches in
height. .Several passers by noticed the pe
culiar accent which he put upon his words.
HER BANK ACCOUNT.
Pretty Lena Kerner Swindled by Her
From the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Chief of Detectives Ilazen had a caller
yesterday morning in the person of a very
pretty, well-dressed woman, who gave her
name as Lena Kerner. She hail In cn living
in a family on Pleasant street, anfl it w;is to
report n contemptible swindle that brought
her to police headquarters. The chief of
the detectives was impressed with her u|>-
ponrauce and manners and took great in
terest in the story she told. Miss
Lena is probably ‘JO years of age,
and while walking on Sixth street a few
months sinee met a well-appearing young
man. Her good looks and graceful bearing
attracted his attention, and when he polite
ly asked the pleasure of carrying her mar
ket basket, she had not the heart to refuse.
This chance acquaintance was productive
of many meetings. The young man's affec
tions seemed inextricably tough'd in tho
flaxen locks that so nicely matched Miss
Lena’s pretty blue eyes. He gave his name
as Charles Witzonbarber, and one day as
they were promenading along Fifth street
he pointed out a store and said it belonged
to him. Finally ho proposed marriage.
Miss Lena coyly gave her consent, and July
1 was selected as tho nuptial day. A few

If so he would take it along with liis. She,
too, would haven bank account. Miss Lena
stated she Imd $95. \V itzenbaeher persuaded

ELDER BAKER’S LOT.
Happy With His Wives and a Sit In a
From the Sew York Star.
Elder Joshua Baker, with three wives
and eight children, fresh from Cache Val
ley, Idaho, is now sharing the honors of the
Globe Dime Museum, on tho Bowery, with
the murdered Railway girl in wax and
Casper Strombach in papier mache. Tiie
elder is a bbny, awkward man with
wrinkled features, u scanty beard aud
teazled hair. The dry winds of Cache have
given him the appearance of a man who
would burn up very quickly if touclvd off
with a match. His face is of the pinched
Southern type common up in the hills. Its
expression is shrewd and kindly.
Mr. Baker was dressed in an alpaca coat,
paper collar, black cravat, jeans shirt and
rough trousers. He and his family are now
getting three square meals a day. ‘ The Mrs.
Bakers are not handsome, but they look
very useful. The children are of various

THE.MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY. JULY 2, 18S7.
AN INDIAN CLERGYMAN.
Rev. Kali Churn Chatterjee Paya a
Visit to St. Louis.
From the Missouri Republican.
Rev. Kali Churn Chatterjee, pastor of the
Presbyterian church at Hashyapur, India,
is in the city, stopping at Hotel Beers. His
wife and little girl are with him. He was a
commissioner to tho Northern Presbyterian
general assembly, recently held at Omaha,
and is on his return trip, making his way to
the Atlantic coast, where he will take ship
in about three months for his far-away
home. Yesterday afternoon ho visited Dr.
S. J. Niccolls, took tea with Dr. J. H.
Brookes in tiie evening and afterward at
tendod prayer meeting at Dr. Brookes’
church, when he addressed the congrega
tion. In this address he urged Christian
workers to select India as their missionary
field of labor.
The preacher was seen by a reporter at
Hotel Beers, ife is tall and erect, with skin
almost black, hair a trifle gray and beard
t inged with gray, and reaching to his waist.
He said: “India has a population of 252,-
900,000. These are divided up into Mahomet
ans, Hindoos, Christians and a few other
'sects. We have 500,000 native-born Chris
tians of our own [msiple. and about 100,000
foreigners who are Christians. England has
about. (>O,<KM) soldiers in India, and they are
counted as Christians also. No Hindoo over
accepts Buddhism in India. There are no
Buddhists in India, although this was once
the home of Buddha. Our people receive
the missionaries fairly well, and have more
confidence in them than most any one else.
It generally takes n missionary two years
to learn our language sufficiently to make
an address in it, although many of our in
stitutions of learning are English and a
missionary can begin to teach as soon as he
gets to our country.”
“How do you like America?”
“I am impressed with the extent and re
sources of America. You have hne such
variety of soil and mineral wealth. Every
thing impresses one, besides, as being new.
Many of your products are raised success
fully in our country, such as wheat, rice,
sugar-cane, Indian corn, etc. The growing
grain and extended plains of Kansas re
minded me very much of India.”
“How do our educational and social sys
tem impress yon?”
“I like your educational system, nnd
think the public school a great blessing; but
it seems a little strange to tne to see boys
and girls being educated in the same col
lege as I did in Kansas. This may have
some advantages, nnd I am not yet prepared
to say whether it is better or not than our
system in ttiis regard. But one thing I
think is inevitable where such a system is
in vogue, and that is that the young ladies
become more masculine and lose to a cer
tain extent their tender feminine disposi
tion; but it may make them more indepen
dent.. I think they are different from
English women in this one re
spect. Your social system has
an air of the same freedom
that one might naturally suppose would fol
low such a system of education. There is a
freedom, a rush and a bustle about Ameri
can life that very much' 5 impresses me.
Your houses are lmilt directly on the
streets, and there seems to be no privacy at
all. i should think that a man in building
a #50,000 house could certainly secure a
quiet place, where he would not lie gazed at
by every passer-by. In your railroad trains
you have a common sleeper for both ladies
and gentlemen. You have what you call a
conductor, also, who takes the tickets as the
train runs. In India our train men stand
at the stations and take the tickets from
the people as they enter. You never see
one come through the train.”
“What do you think of our Democratic
“For myself I would prefer a limited mon
archy. It seems productive of a tetter so
cial system and other desirable things, ns
well, but I have not seen ns much of your
great country as I want and expect to see
before I return. I want to find two young
men to take back with me, ono to teach
mathematics and one natural science in one
of our institutions of learning.”
Putting on the Wedding Garments.
from the Detroit Free Press.
About four milt's out of Tuscaloosa, in
returning from a Sunday visit to a planta
tion, we stopped at a negro church in which
about 100 blacks were assembled for divine
service. The preacher was a man with
powerful voice nnd gesture, and his sermon
was about the necressity of being arrayed
in the wedding garmentsand standing ready
for the Master’s call. His congregation
soon began to warm up. and pretty soon one
and another commenced to drop out as if
overcome. The sermon was grand and
impressive, but way beyond the comprehen
sion of the ordinary plantation hand.
When ive liually went out and drove up the
highway we found men and women scattered
along here and there in tho shade, and
pretty soon came to one young man who sat
with his arm around a girl. We stopped
the buggy, but neither of’em seemed to care,
nnd pretty soon the Colonel observed:
“George, is that a case of love?” “I reckon
it nr’, sah, hut I (loan’ quite know, - ’ was tho
Foung man’s reply. “Dat’s a powerful
sermon of Elder Jackson’s to-day. He’s dun
told us to put on do weddin’ gn’ments if we
want to lie saved.” “And so you intend to
put them on?” “110011 does, sah. I only
come out half an hour ago, an’ I’ze ’greed to
