Arrest cf Klzfr Ferron*-TH lr teen Court Houses Burned to Destroy Eyl> deuce. Kansas City, Mo, October IS —A most gigantic swindle was brought to light here, to-day, by the arrest ot J. K. Ham, Edward It. Stevens and George Miller, on a requisition from Governor Hubbard, of Texas, on a charge of forging laod title* and issuing deeds for large tracts of land in Texas. The swindle originated with Ham and a man named Thoms* Tull is, 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 son of Judge Stevens, of this city, i9 credited with having gone into the operations innocently at first, by baying 14,OC) acres of Texas land of Ham,and Ino^wRhs’ian'd*T'ng The I subsequently became infatuated with the money-making plan, and acting freely with I the other parties engaged in it, and was j known in Texas as the Kansas City lawyer. The better to enable them to carryout I their scheme, Ham and his confederates ! had made duplicate copies of notorial and other seals, and had obtained the signatures ot 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 has been conveyed by them under many aliases, and to many different parties. About a year ago the attention of Governor Hubbard was called to the matter, and on looking into it a monstrous swindle is detected, Involving both this State (Texas) and the United Slates. The authorities at Washington were informed, and Special Agent Foster was sent out here, who obtained a clew, which has been closely followed ever since, resulting in the alumite.' neous arrests It day ot sixty persons in different parts of the country who belong to the gang. No lets than thirteen Court Houses have burned the past ye ar to destroy evidence that could be brought against the swindlers. Ham, Stet GJS aud Miller left tor Texas to day in charge of officers from that State. bs safest and th* belt! l« in*t*nt*neoua In Its action, sol rodeo** the peat natural »hadea of black or brown, don stein the skin, and la eaaily applied. 111 a a ataadan *ippoiatad tot- pp,and a favorite upon every well-arpoin inttori apr4d-sat-!opofcol-ly NEW ADVERTISEMENT*.

D» AN INTERESTING CEREMONY. flow Hie OrlModox Poliak Jews Burr TMelr Dead. Mrs. Joseph Simon and her daughter Rachel, the victim* of the terrible kerosene accident at Troy a few days ago, were members of the extreme orthodox sect of the Polish Jew*. In accordance with the rules of that body, in the absence ot a rabbi the nearest relative of the deceased is authorized to officiate, and the husband and lather accordingly conducted the ceremonies at the luneral. At the house the bodies were laid upon the ti K>r, and shrouds were wrapped around them. A large number ot candles were placed around the bcdies and lighted. After chant* mg 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 Is that it is in accordance with an ancient custom when vessels of different kinds were broken and placed in the coffins. Others say that the pieces are placed over the eyes to pre vee t tie dust from getting in. The unfortunate deceased were then conveyed to the burial ground, and on arriving ut the grave the lids were removed from the coffins. A serious obstacle at this juncture caused a temporary delay; but one grave Ravine been dug, and according lo an old Jewish custom each corpse must repose in a separate grave. Superintendent Kelly soon prepared another grave, and the ceremonies proceeded. Two bags about twelve inches deep were filled with sand, and one wus placed in tach coffin. This action corresponds to a sprinti ng 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 ai soon as possible, i'wo padlocks were then produced, one being placed in each coffia, locked, and the keys thrown away. This action is supposed to lock up the tate ot the family so that nomifetoriuue may happen to the relatives. The clothing ot the decased was then rent la accordance with a custom dating back to the days of the patriarchs. It is a sign of mourning, as it Is recorded that Jacob on hearing of the death of bls son Joseph tore his garment*. The lids were then replaced, and when the coffins had been lowered into the graves, the clothing worn by the deceased at the time of death was gathered together and placed in the respective graves. This Belion is also a pursuance oi a vtry ancient custom, which or* dered that in the event ot any sudden death all the articles found on or near the body should be buried with the body, so that in esse they should be needed at any future time as evidence the judicial officer would know where to find them. Many of those present then pushed three handfuls of dirt each into the grave, and atter reciting a prayer started on their return home.

Three Sisters Poison Themselves Fear of a great disgrace led three sisters —LjdU, Caroline and Lins Fonda— residing at Gloversville, in New York, to seek death on Sunday Hat. They had been arrested on a charge of stealing aril des belonging to a tenant who occupied part of their house, aud 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 coming, 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 canuot recover, and the other two have an even chance of living or dying.
