DESECRATE MILTON'S TOMB
Leaden Coffin Was Cut Open and Body
of Poet Exhibited at a Charge
of Threepence a Person.
There are probably many even
among the subscribers to Milton's
statue who were surprised to hear that
the body of the great poet was once
on view at a charge of threepence a
bead within a few yards from the site
rhoetn for this splendid tribute to his
memory. It was in 1790 after a little
carousal that two overseers and a car
penter entered the Church of St Giles
Cripplegate where Milton lay buried
and having discovered the leaden coffin
which contained bis body cut open its
top with a mallet and chisel. "When
they disturbed the shroud" Neve says.

dian Inspector that the U. S. marshal
of the Central district has been di-

ERROR IN MISSOURI SEAL.
Eras! Sea Ha Center of Emblem Faces
XTaised Caatea Decoration Thus
Since the issue of the Missouri volume
Dr. W. O. Brown of the University of
Missouri has called attention to the fact
that the reproduction of the grand seal
of the stake is incorrect As this em-
blem forme an Important part in the
decoration of the Missouri building
and the several exhibits of the state the
matter baa been Investigated by Walter
Williams for the commission la the
centerpiece of the seal a small bear U
shown on one side while the other is oc-
cupied by a scroll emblematic of the
United States. In the reproductions of
the seal to be found la the Missouri vol-
ume and the decorations of the exhibits
this bear has his head turned toward
this emblem of the United 8tates. It !
claimed by Dr. Brown who Is an author-
ity on heraldry that this representation
denotes an aggressive position on the
part of the state represented by the
bear toward the United States repre-1
seated by the symbol. His claim is that
the head of the bear should be turned
away as denoting submission totheldes
of the union. Dr.-Brown refers to the
official description of the seal and the
original seal preserved In the archive
of the state.
CHICAGO LIKES PICKLE DIET
Western Metropolis Baa Become the
Largest Consumer in the
That Chicago is becoming tbe greatest
pickle eating community in tbe United
States Is a claim made by the Tribune.
It is aald that inside the city limits la
one of the most extensive pickle works
in the world that In the matter of acres
in cucumbers and onions the number of
hands employed and the variety of goods
of this character there Is nothing to
beat It. But the country districts are
fast saining in this business especially
In tbe growth of cucumbers. Some of
the big wholesale grocers of tbe city are
establishing pickle housea In many dif
ferent sections of Indiana Illinois and
Michigan. They make contracts with
the farmers to plant a certain number
of acres agreeing to take the entire
product at stipulated prices. A large
building is erected in such a community
and the work of pickling Is carried on In
it. Farmers find cucumbers a profitable
crop. Last year a pickle factory was
established at Sycamore III. and the
first crop has been an entire success.
One man took at one picking from an
acre and a half cucumbers that netted
blm $24 g7. It Is estimated that there
are from 15 t0 20 pickings so that If the
balance of the crop turns out In propor-
tion to the first picking the land will be
found to be profitably employed. The (
city of Chicaeo and Hs suburbs is tbe
big market for tbl product which showi
that our people l ave a tooth for our
things as well as for sweets.
