Mr. Jonathan Bennison died at his residence at Abdera, Thursday evening at 7 o'clock, Jan. Kith, aged SG years, Tho remains were laid to rest Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock in Cedar Hill Cemetery. Tbe services at the house were conducted by Rev. S. W. Pomeroy, of Mill Hall. The pall bearers of tbo deceased were his grandsons, viz: J. Had Allison, Will J. Shaffer, Dudley B. Allison, P. Mac Bennison, John D. Allison, Robert Bennison. Mr. Bennison was born iu Dunganncn, Ireland, Dec. 25th, 1803. Ho came to thiB country when 14 years of age. Was engaged in the wool business in Bellefonte aud Mill Hall for a number of years. In 1859 he retired to his farm in Nittauy Valley wbore he resided until his death.

A new disposition of the dead as proposed mjy be called the "latest thiug in life." Ground for a "new mausoleum" is to be broken, it is said, iu the spring. Tho idea underlying the new mausoleum is based on the fact that a current of dry air will preservo a body from decomposition and change it iuto a condition resembling life, in which it will remain fur an indefinite time. This process is appliod by nature to the unfortunate traveler and his beast who succumb upou the great deserts. In the Smithsonian Institute are many bodies thus desiccated by nature which have been brought from the battli fields of Mexico and Peru, from southern plains and Indian districts of the far west. The ancient Colchians and Tartars sus pended their dead frum branches of trees to be dried by air aud sun. The Peru vians first dried their deceased frieuds and then buried them iu a sitting posture. Savages of South Australia place tbe dead body on the top of tho hut till perfectly dried, when it is bandaged and bidden among the branches of tbe trees. The body retains its form in tbe process, ani tho skin, though it becomes bard and dry like leather, remains white, while tbe face, though more or less emaciated, remains life-like and recognizable. Modern science and skill are to be applied to tbe original preservative power of the atmos phere. Experiments have recently bee: made by specialists, Srst on animals and later on human bodies. In the course of one recent experiment conducted by sanitary engineer in Washington, in nine weeks a pig was reduced in weight from �2 to 7$ pounds, and remained just as plump and round as in life. In a laboratory in this city tho body of a man weigh i ng 104 pounds was subjected to tbe process iu 1888 and the effect was marvelous. The arrangement for the interment of desiccated bodies in the new mausoleum will be similar to that of the drawers in safety doposit vaults, while the interior plan of the building will resemble that of a well appointed public library, with main corridor and diverging halls leading to different Kections. These drawers or sepul chres will bo of solid concrete four inches thick, without joint or seam, of certain sizes, and arranged iu tiers, of six on either side of tbo hallway. Tbo opening into each sepulchre wil! bo provided with two doors, the inner one of glass hermetically sealed as soon as occupied, through which tho body may be viewed by those holding the keys; the outside of iron, wrought gold, silver or brouzs, decorated and adorned according to the ability and taste of relatives.

The Philadelphia Jtem says: The play it dramatization from Mr. H. Thomas'stories "Tbe Bushrangers, or Gold Hunters in Australia." It is exceedingly interesting aud full of thrilling situations. The plot is laid in Australia, during tbe gold excite-muut in 1S50. The company is an unuBu ally strong one for such a play, and all the characters arc personated in excellent style.
