FAREWELL TO AUSTIN.
Mr. Editor: When I read in Tim Uui.
1.CT15 Or. Austin i greeting that tad
farewell of his my heart melted, and I
was compelled to express my grief In
rhymei, an indiscretion I have not before
been guilty of in the last ton years. You
will obsetve that my Fegassus Is lame and
blind, but then tho old nag might be worio
oil' than lie Is. He might be dead.
Sir, I nood not say to you that all sepa
rations nro sad affairs. They touch the
heart. I remomber, on ono occasion when
1 had succeeded lu getting away lfciru a
friend who was inflicting upon me un
merited punishment, I felt vary sorry
that I had not got away from him sovoral
minutes sooner than I did. But sad as
all separations are and havo been, 1 pro-
sume no parting In the history of the
world could comparo in sadness with the
separation of Dr. A. M. Austin from bis
frlonds. He is a latge man, and It is a
well known fael thai it takes a largo man
longer to separate from friends than a
small man, and thegrlef of parting Is pro
portioned to tbo length of time it takes to
part. Consequently when large men like
the doctor part from their friends, the
grief Is greater than whon small men like
the editor of Tut flt'LLtriN fur instance
part from their friends. This fact ac
counts for tba intense grief we all felt
when we separated from our lost friend.

PECULIAR EVIDENCE OFFERED
TO THK COUNCIL.
Wicked lata are persecuting Elder T. J.
Shorts, All the lower regions, personated
by th Sloeptrilet, are advancing against
him. They convnoda council and thoy
have convicted him of many and grave
charges. Tbo evidence takes in the trial
was of a peculiar kind.
For instance, the f.rst charge was "that
T. ,1. Shores Is a deceiver that he is desti
tute of piety aud the fear of God of even
the commonest grud. ' This charge was
proven by Logan Sleeper who read a lo
cal item from The Uei.t-iTiy to thn effect
that Sleeper was not an angel and Houston
not a cherub. This was enough. It mult
be clear to all that if Tllkt IiUt.Lr.TlN says
Kloepcr and Houston are to and so, Shores
must as a consequence be a deceiver.
Tho second charge was adultery, but
what the evidence was did not appear.
The council voted that Shores was that
kind of a man, although it must be rn-
ineuiberiid that l'nul tho ork of the
Lord it not done behiud a curtain. No
evidatice was taken, and Shores declares
that if evtry adulterctit man in tho world
was hung to death twice by tho heels mid
thin shot, he would still live.
Th seventh charge, that hu is a nun of
foul tongue and rowdyl.h behavior, a reg
ular drinker of loir and other strong
drinks, wa proven by the te.tlmony of a
woman who hid seen him going to
ScheeVs hall in broad day light. She did
not see him drink, but then he called her
"a big thing on ice,'' and that is surely
conclusive ovideoco that the reverend
gentleman Is a drinker of beer. All
drinkers of beer call women big things on
Mr. Shores oltims that the council was
not legal. The law provides that in cases
of difficulty, for which the church desires
the advice and wisdom of disinterested
brethren, letters may be sent to the neigh
boring churchos, roquttsting them to ap
point delegates to meet a delegation from
the church on a specified day, to which

Dr. Dunning suggoted that the council
should bvery careful to appoint a com
petent man to act as inspector. It should
select a man who is competent to tell a

meant to say.
ALer consultation the committee re
ported in favor of coal tar as a disinfectant
U be u.ed in the low and damp places of
