I walk down the Valley of SUenco
Down the dim, voiceless valley ,alonet
And I hour not the full of a footatcp
Around me savo God's and my own ;
And tho littali of my heart la as holy
As hovers where angels bare flown t
Long ago was I weary of voices.
Whose music my heart could not win;
Long ago 1 was wenry of noises
That fretted my soul with their dlu ;
Long ago was ( weary of places
Where I Diet but the Human and sin.
I walked the world with the worldly ;
I crnved what the world ..over gave ;
And I said ; "In each the Ideal, .
THt shines like Rjtar on III' es wave,
Is tossed on the shores of the Real,
And sleeps like a dream in a grave."
And still did 1 pine for the Perfect,
And still found the false with the true;
I sought 'mid the Human of Heaven
ltttt caught a mere glimpse of Its blue;
And I wept when the eloudsof the ruor'
Yelled even that glimpse from my
And I tolled on, Itcart-tlrcd ol the Hu
And I moaned 'mid the mazes ol men;
Till 1 knelt long ago at an altar
Aud heard a voice cull me ; sluce
I walk down the Valley ol Silence
That lies fur beyond mortal ken.
Do you ask what 1 found in the valley ?
'i'ls my trystlng place with the
divine ; -And
1 roll at the feet of the Holy,
And above me a voice said: "lie
And then rose from the depths of my
Au echo--".My heart shall be thine. "
Do you aak how I live In the valley f
I weep aud dream ant I pruy -
But my tears am as sweet as the dew
That lull on tho roses in May ;
Aud my prayer, liko a puiiutno from
Asccudith to God, night and day.
In the hush of tho Valley of Silence
I dt'cuut all the song that I slug ;
And the lutislc IhuiU dowu the dim val
Till each flntls a word for a wing
That to men, like thy Dove ollho De
The message of i'eace they may
But fur on the deep there are billows
That never shall break on the bench.
Aud 1 have heard songs lu the silence
That never shall flout into speech ;
And I have had dreams In the vulley
Too lolly for lunguage U reach.
And 1 have secu Thoughts la the valley
Ah I me ! how my spirit was stirred I
Aud they wear holy veils on their laces;
Their loutstcps can scarcely be heard;
They pass through the vulley, like vir
Too pure lor the touch of a word.

There are sunny days and childish joys,
There are school duy sporU and broken

There's a little grave close by the hill,

That I loved so long ugo.

There are withered roses anil wlldwood
That I used to gather In childhood hours

And a strain of music, forgotten now,

And t little foot-print in the sund

The I.afayetto County Tragedy.
Sueeial to the Republican.
Sedai.ia, Mo,. June 28. Full
details of the terrible shooting
affroy at Anllville on Wedncs
day were rccieved here to-uight.
Last Fall Burt C. Wreu and
Iiicbard Taylor went hunting,
when Wren accured Taylor of
talking abont his family. Hot
words passed between them and
they dismounted and fought, in
which contest Taylor was badly
be.atcu. Taylor went belore the
Lafayette county grand jury and
had Wren indicted for assault.
Both men are respectable farm
ers and live near Anllville. In
their neighborhood is a man who
busied himself with carrying re
ports of what one bad said of the
other until both believed their
lives were in danger. Siuce the
affray this man has been ordered
by the citizens to leave the coun
ty within three days. On
Wednesday Wren was sitting in
front of Grove Youngs store,
when Kiebard Taylor, accompa
nied by bis younger brother Rob
ert, approached from the oppo
site side of tbe street, and when
when within ten feet of Yren.
drew their revolvers. Wren
drew a pistol abont tbe same
time, when fourteen to twenty
shots were exchanged. Kobert
Taylor recieved three balls, one
breaking bis right arm, another
entering his side, the third tak
ing effect just in tho rear of the
right ear, causing instant death,
ltichard Toylor was shot once
in tho side, tbe ball lodging in or
fracturing the spiual column.
Tie fell paralyzed and ferfectly
helpless. Wren recieved five
wounds, in the arm, thigh, shoul
der, back of tho head and side.
The latter is the most serious
but physicians believe he will re
cover. Wren is a native of Ken
tucky, has resided in Lalayette
county about six years, is highly
respected and has a family.
Robert Taylor, killed on the spot
is from Elm Grove, Cooper coun
ty Mo., and a nephew of Coljucl
Robert McCulloch of Boonvillo.
Ho leaves a family of small chil
dren. His remains will be inter
cd to-morrow at Tiptou Mo.
where his wife's relations reside.
Richard Taylor had partially re
covered from paralysis to-day
and physicians believe some hope
for bis recovery remains. The
affray creates the greatest ex
citement. It is almost impossi
ble to procure an impartial re
port. Col. McCulloch weut to

Cbastine Cox, a negro, was ar
rested in BoBton, on the 2.1d, for
the murder of Mrs. Hull in New
York City on the night of June
10th. Mrs. Hull's ring and some
other jewelry were found npon
bis person, and being closely
pressed the negro confessed.
He bad been employed for over
a year at a bouse in the vicinity
of Mrs nulls, and entered the
house by a window for tho pur
pose cf robbery- Mrs. Hull hav
ing become alarmud at his en
trance into her room, he smoth
ered-heretics, and then after
she had become unconscious he
tied hor in the manner in which
she was discovered. There is
nothing to indicate that be bad

rested principally through the
efforts of Mr. W. A. Balch, a
Boston newspaper reporter, who
identified him on the street, fol
lowed him into a church and then
seenred his arrest.

A Smoothly-Spun Story of (he Stock
ing and lite Storm.
A strange incident of tho tor
nado is to'd. A lady, Mrs. B.
was sick when the bouse was
blown away. She was hurt se
riously and taken to a neighbor's
with her clothing torn to tatters
one foot covered with a stocking
and the other bare. In a few
days a pillow slip was found in
tbe cornticld near by sealed up
with tho black mud by the storm.
It was taken to her and on being
opened iu ber prcscuce her lost
stocking was found in it. The
pillow case had been taken off
the pillow that was under her
tho stocking off her foot, placed
in and securely sealed. The
proof of tho facts as stated is
said to be conclusive. Iudepcnd
