Arrest Sixty Court Houses Burned to Destroy Evl> deuce. Kansas City, ilo., October most gigantic swindle was brought to light here, to-day, by the arrest ol J. K. Ham, Ed- ward Stevens and George Miller, on a requisition from Governor Hubbard, of Texas, oil a charge of forging land titlei and issuing deeds for large tracts of land in Texas. The swindle originated with Ham and a man named Thomas Tullis, of Austin, Tex. Ham lives here, and through, his persuasions Stevens and Miller were brought into the scheme. Stevens, who is a lawyer, and a eon of Judge Stevens, of this city, is credited with having gone into the operations inncoently at first, by buy- ing acres of Texas land of Ham, and subsequently became infatuated with the money-making plan, and acting freely with the other parties engaged in it, and was known in Texas aa the Kansas City lawyer. The belter to enable them to carry out their scheme, Ham ani his contederates had made duplicate copies of notarial and other seals, and had obtained the signatures of many officials. They also had printed here blank forms and perfect copies of deeds necessary for their operations. All titles and patents representing either State or Government lands used by them were forged. An Immense amount of land Mas been conveyed by them under many aliases, and to many different parties. About a year ago the attention of Uovern- or Hubbard was culled to the matter, and on looking into it a monstrous swindle is detected, Involving both this State (Texas) and the United States. The authorities at Washington were informed, and Special Agent was sent out here, who ob- tained a clew, which has been closely fol- lowed ever since, resulting in the simulta- neous arrests tc-day ot sixty persons in dif- ferent parts of the country who belong to the gang. No less than thirteen Court Houses have burned the past yiar to de- stroy ey idence that could be brought against the swindlers. Ham, Stereos and Miller left for Texas to-day in charge of officers from that Slate. M. M. PHELPS, Attorney at Law. Collections made, loans negotiated mortgages foreclosed. OIBee, block, CM.

How tlic Orthodox 1'ftilnli JewM Bury 'JTliclr Dead. Mrs. Joseph Simon and her daughter Kaeliel, the victims of tho terrible kero- sene accident at Troy a few days ago, were members of the extreme orthodox sect of the Polish Jews. In accordance with the rules of Ibat body, in the absence ot a rabbi the nearest relatiyo .of the deceased is authorized to offleiate, ana the husband and father accordingly conducted the cer- emonies at, the funeral. At tho honse tbe bodies were laid upon the floor, and shrouds were wrapped around them. A large cumber of candlea were placed around the bcdies and lighted. After chant- ing and reading prayers the bodies were placed in two rough boxes, two tea cups were broken, and fragments were placed over the eyes of the departed. The exact meaning of this act does not seem to be generally understood, but the opinion of the best Hebrew authority U that it is in accordance with an ancient custom when vessels of different kinds were broken and placed m the coffins. Others say that the pieces are placed over the eyes to prevent tie dust from getting in. The unfortunate deceased were then conveyed to the burial ground, and on arriving at the grave tho lids were removed from the coffins. A BC- rious obstacle at this juncture caused a temporary delay but one grave having been dug, ancl according to an old Jewish custom each corpse must repose in a separate eravi1. Superintendent Kelly soon prepared another grave, and the ceremonies proceeded. Two bags about twelve inches deep were filled with sanr1, and one was placed in each coffin. This action corresponds to a sprinkling of dust over the heads of Christians. In ancient limes the Jews did not use coffins, but simply covered the dead with a shroud and placed them in the ground, so that they might decompose as soon as possible. Two padlocks were then produced, one being placed in each coffin, locked, and the keys thrown away. This action is sup- posed to lock up the late of the iamily so that no misfortune may happen to the rel- atives. The clothing oi the decasod was then rent in accordance with a custom dat- ing back to the days of the patriarchs. It is a sign of mourning, as it la recorded that Jacob on hearing ol the death of his son Joseph tore his garments. The lida were then replaced, and when the coffins had been lowered into the graves, the clothing worn by the deceased at tho time of death was gathered together and placed m the re- spective graves. This action is also a pur- suance oi a ytry ancient custom, which or- dered that in tha tvent ot any sudden death all the articles found on or near the body should be buried with the body, so that In case they should be needed at any luture time as evidence the judicial officer would know where to find them. Many of those present then pushed three handluls of dirt each into the graye, and after re- citing a prayer started on their return home.

They had been arrested on a charge of stealing arti- cles belonging to a tenant who occupied part of their house, and they had given bail to appear for trial. A friend, upon entering tho house Sunday night, found the three women apparently dead; one lying insensible upon a bed, another upon a lounge and a th rd upon the floor. A physician was instantly summoned, who, upon eoming, declared the women had taken poison. Antidotes were given them, which restored all to consciousness, but, in the opinion of the physician, one of the women cannot recover, and the other two have an even chance of living or dying. .00 A Month To MBTS selling our LETTElt COPY- NQ BOOIC.
