John Tyler’s Remains Consigned to
the Crematory Oven.
From the Cincinnati Enquirer.
A little funeral procession yesterday after
noon wended its way westwardly along
Browne street, and the people along the
solemn line of march stood in their door
yards and wondered where the cortege
could be going, as there are no cemeteries
in that direction. The procession was pro
ceeding to the crematory, which stands on
the brow of the hill to the east of
Dixmyth avenue, strongly reminding the
beholder of the ruins of sorao
old feudal castle. The cortege wended its
wav to the crematory instead of the ceme
tery, in accordance with the ante mortem
request of the deceased. The deceased was
John Tyler, of Milldale, Ky., who had gone
live years beyond man's allotted three score
and ten. He claimed to be a nephew of
President Tyler. He was a man of some
property and means, and was noted in the
community in which he resided for certain
eccentricities. During the last few years of
his life ho was an enthusiast on
the subject of cremation,
and never failed to visit the sick of his
neighborhood to advise them that if the
worst should come the wisest disposition
that they could have made of their remains
would be to have them cremated. He was
a stockholder in the crematory in which his
own remains wore yesterday incinerated.
Before his death the deceased, in keeping
with the eccentricities for which ho was
noted, gave directions that his body should
not be placed on ice, and that his coffin
should be the plainest aud most inexpensive
to be found. This last request, at least, was
certainly carried out most conscientiously.
It was about 3 o’clock yesterday afternoon
when the hearse and two carriages contain
ing mourners drew up at the crematory
door. The nows that, there was to be a
cremation hud gone abroad and fully
TWO HUNDRED PEOPLE
stood about in a roasting sun awaiting the
arrival of the remains. The mourners car
ried with them a glass urn in which to re
ceive the ashes after the incineration. The
great furnace was in readiness to receive
the body, the stoker standing at its hot and
glowing mouth feeding it coke. The very
plain coffin was taken from the hearse and
carried into one of the little ante-rooms of
the crematory. There the body was taken
from the coffin by two attendants, denuded
of its shroud and wrapped in an alum
was placed on an iron car—cradle, the at
tendants called it.
The car, or truck, is a four-wheeled affair,
about the length of the human Ixxly, the flat
iron bars of which it is constructed crossing
each other at right angles, leaving regular
series of open squares. Through these open
spaces the ashes drop into the bed of fire be
low, according as the body incinerates. It
is only the small proportion of the ashes
clinging to the bars that are preserved for
the friends. The body, wrapped up com
pletely, head and all, in the alum-soaked
winding sheet, was laid upon the car, and
the car with a vigorous push was rolled into
the fiery furnace. The body remains on the
ear during the incineration. Very little
privacy attended the cremation. All who
applied were admitted, except perhaps the
mischievous and irreverent small boy, who
is wanted nowhere, especially where the
presence of death imposes the duty of de
corum. It was the -writer’s
at a cremation, and, as human nature is
pretty much the same, his own feelings will
no doubt fairly illustrate the emotions of all
present. The scene awakened none of that
awe. that sadness, that serious reflection,
that, determination to, in the future, think
less of the here and more of the hereafter,
that is inspired by the sight of a coffin being
lowered into the dark, damp grave, and the
sound of the earth falling upon the lid as
the grave-diggers cover It up’ from mortal
eyes forever. The scene awakened no nobler
emotion than one of curiosity. It inspired
no horror, no sadness, no thought of death,
none of these peculiar feelings that the
sight of a burial stirs up in the breast. It
A FEELING OF CURIOSITY
that was experienced, an interest such as you
feel in a ceremony or operation that you
never saw before. Simply that and nothing
more. The crowd that stood about discussed
the operation in a matter-of-fact way, and
with a cold-blooded curiosity, as if it were a
spectacular exhibition prepared for their en
tertainment, and not the solemn ceremony
of- ‘ashes ti > ashes. ” In a few moments after
the body had been placed in the oven a blue
flame began to play about the winding
sheet in which the remains w r ere wrapped.
“What's the idea of wrapping the Ixxly in
an alum-soaked sheet f” was asked of the at
“Alum resists fire,” was tho reply, “and
while the sheet is comparatively uninjured
by the heat, the body within its’folds is rap
idly incinerating. The idea is to conceal the
body during the process of cremation, in or
der to shut out from the sight of the friends
of seeing the departed one’s flesh linking to
a VS 8 !* nn< * the bones burning to ashes.”
che heat of the furnace was almost incon
ceivably intense. It was at such a degree
of white heat that a glance within revealed
the embers fairly glistening like snow be
neath the cold rays of a January sun. Tho
temperature was up to 2,500’. Still, so
t uck are tho brick walls of the oven that
°ut- could stand within six inches of it with
comfort, except when the stoker opened tho
heavy iron door to shovel in more coke.
1 " ice, at the request of the mourners, tho
attendant njienod the door aud allowed them
to look at tho body.
a very pleasing looking woman, of about 35
she was the second wife of the deceased—
looked in with the others. She seemed well
pleased with the process of incineration,
;? r after the second look she remarked that
he believed cremation to lie lietter than
jurial, and that when her time comes she

WILL, THE BANK WIND UP?
A Movement by the Stockholders of
the Planters’ Savings Bank.
At Augusta Tuesday a paper was being
circulated for signatures the object of
"'hit'll was to wind up the business of tho
Planters’ Loan and Savings Bank. Tho
rumor was corroborated, the stockholder
stating that while the bank is perfectly
solvent, it is not paying, and that the insti
tution can be wound up and tho stockhold
ers get much more out of it than if they
continue to run it. The stock is quoted to
day at five, and it is believed that if closed
out it wifi easily net six and a half.
The following copy of an advertisement
STOCKHOLDERS MEETING OF THE PLANTERS’
LOAN AND SAVIKUS BANK.
‘‘The undersigned representing one-fourth
of the capital stock of said bank, hereby
give notice that a convention of dhe stock
holders of this corporation will he held at
its banking house in the city of Augusta at
10 o’clock a. m., on Wednesday, July 37,
1887. Business of groat importance will be
brought before tho convention. Leonard
Phinzy, John Jay Cohen, J. B. White, E.
F. Verdery, Harper Bros.. James E. Harper,
C. 11. Howard, AY. H Howard.”
The Augusta Gazette of yesterday has
the following on the suject: “The publica
tion concerning tho Planters’ Loan and Sav
ings Bank necessarily disquieted many of
the stockholders and caused a great deal of
alarm in town. The facts are these.
The gentloroen signing the notice calling a
convention of stockholders did so on their
own responsibility and without notifying
the President or the cashier. True, these
gentlemen represent one-fourth of the cap
ital stock, but that did not authorize
them to call the convention. Gentle
men representing one-fourth of the
capital stock desiring to call a meeting
should notify the President, who will com
ply with their request. In this case this was
not done. Not only so, but somo of the gen
tlemen who signed the call stated that tney
were under the impression that the card
was asking the President to call the conven
tion, and were net at nil aware that it was
for publication. The Gazette is in a posi
tion to state that the bank is not only sol
vent, but that if its affairs were wound up and
all the real estate sold, a handsome balance
would be left after paying its entire debts.
No dividend w’as paid this half year—the first
half year in the history of the bank, now
seventeen years, that it tailed to pay a divi
dend—but, as was remarked by good author
ity to the Gazette, business was very dull
during the last half year. The same
authority stated also that the expenses of
first half year are much greater than the ex
penses of the last half. The publication had
a bad effect yesterday. For the protection
of all parties interested the rule and by-law
requiring sixty days’ time will be enforced.
Much of the stock of the bank is invested
in real estate, and a big
sum is out on loan, so that it would be im
possible for the bank to liquidate its debts
all at once, as it would be for any other
bank. The President is confident that with
a little time all will be right again and the
little incident created will soon blow over.
One thing the stockholders and depositors
may rest assured of. that the bank's position
is impregnable and that dollar for dollar
can be paid. The present lull in the busi
ness of the bank is the first in seventeen
years, and until this past half year the bank
was able to pay a substantial dividend.”
The First Caterpillar.
From the Albany (Ga.) News and Advertiser.
As surely, regularly and unfailingly as
Primus Jones is the first bale man, so is G.
M. Bacon the first caterpillar man. Primus’
first bale came in on July 5 this year, and
now wo have Mr. Bacon’s first caterpillar.
It is now on exhibition in a little quinine
bottle in the News and Advertiser office,
with three days’ rations of cotton leaves
around it. The appearance of the first cater
pillar about the middle of July should not
be viewed with alarm, especially when it is
remembered that it came from Merry Ba
con’s farm, and that he is the early bird
that invariably catches the worm. Our ad
vices from him are that there are no indica
tions, as yet, of the appearance of the cater
pillars in anything like pestilential form or
numbers. He probably had to rise early
and search diligently to find this one, but,
being jealous of his reputation as the first
caterpillar man, and stimulated by the ap
pearance of PTiinus’ first bale, he was de
termined to have it.
Heroee and Heroines.
There are few who endure bodily troubles
without complaint. Did you ever meet among
the heroes or heroines of your acquaintance— it
any such there have been—one with a yellowish
cast of countenance and that jaundiced aspect
generally, which the most unpracticed eye rec
ognizes ‘as the product of a disordered liver,
who did not complain, and peevishly, too, of the
soreness of the recalcitrant organ, of pains be
neath the right shoulder blade, of dyspeptic
symptoms, constipation and headache? Of
course, you never did, and of course the indi
vidual was not using Hostetter’s Stomaeh Bit
ters, or he would not so have looked—so have
complained. To purify the blood when con
taminated with bile, and conduct the secretion
into its proper channel, to re-establish regularity
of the bowels, bilious headache and re
move impediments to complete digestion, noth
ing can approach in efficacy this peerless al
terative and tonic. Malarial complaints, always
involving the liver and kiduey and bladder in
activity, are remedied by it. It is a capital ap
