honest parson discourse "Is mean

LIST. The last number of the Johnson
County Journal contains u big-headed
article ou tho publication of tho delin
quent tax lUt of that county. One of the
head lines declares In startling type,
that the list was published in Cairn, and
the text of the article asserts that tho i
fluc of the Ytomnn that contained the list
hailed from the Huuxtin olllce. The
Journal is mistaken. The Yeoman was
not published from this olllce any more
than the Journal that contains this charge
was published In Chicago or St. Louis,
because one halt one tide of It was
printed, ns it was, In ono or tiiou i-ir.
Mr. Schuckers ucd some llgtire.s we
have In composing his tax list, set up the
list himself and published it necordlng to
law in Johnson county. On tho matter
of the errors charged to be in tho list as
published we will not comment. That
thargc may be true, but that the IK was
published In Cairo Is a charge absolutely
the decohatiox of uravkn ci'.ii
i;mony. Frof. Brownlee, of the Southern Nor
mal University, was tho decoration ora
tor at Carbomtalc, and in his oration gave
the credit to Gen. John A. Logau ot In
atltutlng the bcautlml decoration ceremo
nial. We believe the Professor Is, in part,
correct. While Gen. Logan was Com
mander of the Grand Army ol the Re
public, the custom of decorating with
flowers the graves of the soldiers of the
Union was insltuted ; but it had its origin
In the South. After the war, negroes of
tho South, when the flowers bloomed,
took boqucts, and laid them upon the
rraves of Northern Koldlcre, who had
freed them. Tho Southern people acted
upon the hint, and hare since loaded the
graves of their dead with the fragrant
flowerpot the Spring time. Wo of the
North could not permit tho Southern peo
ple to make this custom pccullaily their
own ; and therefore, ut thu sugge-tion of
the Grand Army of the Republic adopted
the custom, and have since, very faith
fully paid yearly floral tributes to tho
dead who fell in the w.tr for the I'nlon.
A Chicago correspondent ol tho St.
Louis Times Bays tho Chicago Journal of
that name has a new city editor. To
reach tho position of city editor of a pa-
per like the Chicago Timra Is to Ikj tsuc-
cesstul In a way, and therefore tho man
who has Just arrived at It receives more
than a passing notice from his brother of
the quill. Seven years ago Snowden was
a country school teacher in Lawrence,
111. Ills salary was thirty dollar a month
and board. Hut he w.w economical with
his thirty dollars a itibtiUi, and among

The marriage ot Gen. Sheridan to Miss
Irene Kuckcr. daughter of C an. Uucker,
ot Chicago, which took plaeu on last
Thursday, was remarkable for the ab
sence of that display which has been a
noticeable feature of all the wcddlngi
which have taken place for tho last year
or so In families prominently connected
with either the civil or military depart
ments of the government.
Miss Irene Kuckcr now Mrs. Sheridan,
lias moru than ordinary beauty of person
united to more than ordinary charms of
mind. Shu was carefully educated at a
hlladclphla convent, speaks her own lan-
guagu with purity and several others flu
ently, and wlilie slio neither plays nor
sings, numbers, among her accomplish
ments a thorough knowledge of tine
needlework. She Is a devout Catholic.
The friendship between Gen. Sheridan
and thu family of Miss Uucker was of
long standing the courltddp was short,
the engagement having been entered Into
during Sheridan's visit to Xew OrJa
last U Inter. .MNs liuoUor funned one of
the pirty invited by Gen. .Sheridan to ac
company hlni ou that trip.
The inarriago ceremony took placa at
the bride's father's house, and was at
tended by personal and military friends
of thy parties. Thu liousu was decorated
with flowers. Tho bride wore thu cus
tomary white satin which thu daughters
of the rich and of some who nrc not rich,
always wear ou such occasions, and Gen.
Sheridan appeared in tiio full uniform of
u Lleutetiant-Guneral. Tho ceremony
was performed by the Iluv. Thomas 1).
Foley, of tho Catholic church, and niter
a collation at tiie house, the twain took
their departure, in a carriage presented
by Sheridan to his bride, for his own
house ou Michigan avenue.
Among thu notables present at thu inar
riago were (.leu. Sherman, Gen. Crooke,
Gen. Terry, Gen. Ord, Gen. Pope, Gen.
Whipple and other xilllcers of tho United
States army, most of them accompanied
by their wives.
Tho presents were elegant and numer
ous. 'I he t'ilt ot Gen. Sheridan to his
wife was a coupe, with brown satin lin
ing?, pair of sorrel horses nud gold
mounted rubber harnes". The rlft of
