A Despicable Theft.
County Treasurer Cooper, upon his
return from Topeka yesterday, received
a most unwelcome surprise. He had
on Saturday set out about fifty choice
pear trees, a dozen cherry trees and
two hundred apple trees, on his farm
northwest of the city. All this week
he had been away from home, and
when he returned he found that in lm
absence some low-minded villain had
pulled the whole orchard, except about
about half the apple trees, from the
groundand departed for parts unknown.
To say that John J. was angry is put
ting it very mildly. All his hopes of
bountiful bushels of fruit were shat
tered at a blow. The tree-planting ad
vocates must have been urging their
their caie a little too strongly. It
seems strange that any human being
can stoop to such meanness. We pity
the thief if he is caught, as he will be,
if a fifty dollar reward will assist any.

some fine detective work yesterday,
which resulted in the capture of a for

Sheriff Mason came here Thursday,
and byt the aid of Marshal Kirkwood,
who unraveled a long series of entan
glements, found his man working for
E. S. Engel, eight miles south of the
city. Upon the sheriffs appearance,
the man, who was plowing, was so
overcome as to almost faint away. He
was taken east last night.

Th" Methodist church was filled to

Mrs. J. It. Madison. The ihurch was

Editor Reflector, An article in
last Saturday's Gazette seems to reflect
on the motive of the soldier of the late
war in taking up arms, and seems to
be a kind of covert attempt to put the
old veteran in bad odor with the pub
lic. When one is in doubt whether the
soldier fought for principle or for
money, he entertains the thought that
his motive might have been a very low
one, and this is "the unkindest cut of
all". To doubt one's honesty is to ac
ouse him of dishonesty, and herein lies
a fearful libel upon the patriotism of
the grandest body of men of this or
any other ago. You may, in fact, you
you must, judge of man's motive by
his deeds, his sacrifices and his forti
tude in time of defeat. What wonder
ful pecuniary inducement was there in
a soldier's pay 513 per month in a de
preciated currency to make a man go
South to be shot at by the F. F. V.'s,
to be starved in Audersonville by the
heathens, or poisoned in Xow Orleans
by the (s)heathens, to say nothing of
the other items of toil, danger, sick
ness, hard-tack, etc., and of leaving a
family at home to suffer by his absence.
To doubt for a moment that the thous
ands of names of men who died for our
country are imperishable shows a de
cree of obtuseness that one is not pre
pared to find even in a Democratic
daily. There is no doubt an "adequate
compensation for duty done in the con
sciousness of having performed well
their part." (God save the mark!) but
that will not keep a disabled soldier
warm when coal is $7 a ton and the
mercury 28 degrees below zero, nor buy
him a cork leg to, in a manner, supply
the place of the robust one he left on
Xo! That ungrateful soul, who
would question the patriotism of the
soldiers who saved this .Nation from
the worst rebellion the world ever
knew would question the virtue of the
mother who bore him and by her labor
and tender regard tried to make a man
of him. It is enough for him to know
that that woman is his mother to com
mand his heart's best affection, and it
is enough for this Gazette man to know
that the soldier saved this country and
made it possible for him to write
"About Pensions" to cause him to
take off his 61 hat in deepest reverence
to that same old veteran without stop
ping to ask about his "motive." As
though one could be paid in dollars and
cents for risking his life! AH the
"clamor" comes from just such "mo
tive" talks as this. If rebels were all
dead, there wonld be no more clamor
the needy soldier would have been pen
sioned long ago. "We do not believe
they fought for base and mercenary
ends." Believe! Don't vou know
that they "planted our Hag in heaven"
and whipped all hell to do it. And
now after that flag has floated twenty'
five years to the glory of God and
administration of the nations, "uo
are prepared to do them the honor to be

Sheriff Xaill arrived in the city this
morning with Tom Morgan accused of
the murder of John Goul near the
Marion county line last fall.
It will be remembered that Morgan
was captured in Kentucky and brought
back here and then turned State's evi
dence against one Shaner. Shaner
proved an alibi and now Morgan will
be tried for the deed. In the course of
Shaner's trial, it transpired that the
murder was committed on this side the
county line. So Morgan will be tried
at the next term of the Dickinson
county District Court. The prisoner
will be kept here until his trial.
