a sigh, howeer, by aaany a rebelliou beauty
whose particular type of loeliness they
do not at all "become." As ladies
looked into the windows vthere
these bonnets were displayed last
week, they wondered, audibly, where stvle
so outre enrae from. "How can we ever, eier,
ever wear tbem?" asked one of another.
And tbe otLer pensively replied that she be

and these were the cast-off bead-gear of
Noah's wife and hisons' wives. "Sa far

fully. "I was thinking Jezebel might have
set the fashion, for you know the Bible says
fiat sLe ''tired her bea'd and piinted her
face, and look id out ol the window.' And,
don't )oa know, it would 'tire' 'most any
body's held to wear one of those
things?" Her friend looked at her
reproachfully, and they passed on.
More and more, every year, obtains the beau
tiful custom of filling altar and chancel wiih
a wealth of bloom and Iragrance, con'picuous
amorg which towers the stately ivory
throated calla. Many ladies have folb wed
the devout fashion ot growing these lillies
and bringing tbem to bloom during the past
winter, in order to present them as their
Eister osering at this sacred season.
"Oh, happy rlowers! Oh, liappr Bowers!

In detdof night, in cheerful day,
Close to my own Lord you eUy,
Until you gently fade away.

Mr. Francli 31. Weaver, of Tills City, Ar
rested in New York, Hut Release! by the
Governor The Story of Ills Prosecutions
and Persecutions One Feature Yet Un
explained, iu which a Young Lady Fig
urea. The following article, published in a New
Yoik piper, a few days ago, will be read
with interest by Springfield people who are
acquainted with the gentleman named, Mr.
F.-ank M. Weaver, of this city:
Pocgukeepsie, N. Y., March 31. Francis
M. Weaver, ot Salina, O., came to Pongh
keepsie a month ago, and registered at a
hotel with a young woman, wbo said aer
rame was Maggie Miller, and that she was a
niece of Weaver. A week ago the hotel pro
prietor presented a sixty dollar bill, which
Weaver said he could not pay, and he went
with his niece to a private boarding boose.
Oa Thursday last Chief ot Police Brooks re
ceived a telegram from Salina, O., asking that
Weaver be arrested, as be was wanted in that
place for obtaining a signature to a note tor
$395 on lal;e pretenfes. An Ohio officer ar
retted Weiver yesterday afternoon. Weaver
residis at Springfield, 0 an I the officer who
arnsted bim siys be is a married man and
the father of tao children, and Miss Miller
informed him last evening that she was not a
relative ot Weaver.
On seeing the above, a reporter called at the
Weaver residence on.Nortb Mechanic street,
last night, and learned that sbewas at tbe
shoe store of Mr. W. A. Hance, on Market
street, where she is employed. About halt
past ten o'clock a visit was made to the store,
where Mr. Hance and Mrs. Weaver were
found. Tbey were jost closing the store, bat
teFftSafiuyrmed as to theobje;t of the re
porter s visit, ne was invitea in. insusn
of allowing Mrs. Weaver to answer ques
tions put to ber, Mr. Hance at once
proceeded to get angry at being approached
on tbe subject, and after a few hot words, tbe
light was turned out, aid the reporter order
ed out of tbe store. Not to be put off in this
xay, however, the Globe-Rii-cdlic scribe
waited a reasonable length of time and then
repaired to the Weaver residence once more,
Mr. Hance and Mrs. Weaver having preceded
tbem. Not desiring a repetition of
the quarrel in the store, the
reporter waited about twenty minutes to give
the gentleman time to come out. But he
didn't come, and the reporter knocked and
gained admission, being treated in a very
courteous manner by the lady. Seeing that
he had been balled in bis attempt to keep tbe
matter quiet, tbe gentleman apologized to
the scribe for his conduct in the store, and
proceeded to give a full account of the affair,
all of which was corroborated by Mrs.
It occu-s that Mr. Weaver made a contract
nilli a man named Austin, at Celina, Ohio'
to manufacture bis patent treadle-mill, taking
h3 note for the amount agreed upon for tbe
right, $396. Mr. Austin did not make as
many fortunes as be thought he would, and
at once had Weaver indicted for obtainining
money under false pretenses, the latter having
in the meantime had tbe note discounted.
Before the case came to trial, the indictment
was quished This was about two years
ago. Not saiisfied, however, Mr. Austin bad
Weaver again indicted by the next grand
jury. This time he was also dismissed before
the trial was finis ted. Still thinking he had
a good case against Mr. Weaver, Austin had
him indicted again list fall, and it was on
this indictment that he was arrested at
I'oughkeepsie a few days ago. A Celina
oHicers went on after him, but Mr. Weaver,
knowing that be was being persecuted, ap
pealed to the Governor of New York. The
latter, after hearing all the facts in the case,
refused to r. cognize the requisition tor Weav
er and set bim free. The account ot his ar
rest was seen a few days ago by his friends,
but tbe full particulars of the case are not
knuwti to them, and it is for the
purpose of placing him in the
right light before his friends that the above
stitemcnt is made. Mr. Hance, wbo is a
paitner ol Mr, Weaver, has received explan
atory letters in tegard" to the affair, which
seem to set the matter all right. As to the
young lady in the case, Maggie Miller, noth
ing was said in tbe leUers, and both Mr.
Hance nad Mr. Weaver's family are in ignor
ance as to ihe relations, if any, between Mr.
Wcaer and the girl.

and reported that a stable was burning in
the rear of C. A. Davis' paint store on Main
street between Factory and Mechanic Box
C was keyed in and the Centrals and West
erns responded promptly. The fire was
located in a carriage shedandstable belonging
to Wm. R. Burnett. The twobuildingsare on
the east side of the alley, but do not adjoin
each other. The fire spread rapidly, and in a
few moments both buildings seemed doomed.
Quick work, bowevet, soon got the blaze un
der control. The carriage shed was almost
totally destroyed, and the other stable badly
damaged, both to the amount of probably
$250, which is covered by insurance.
In the carriage shed were a
buggy belonging to C. A. Davis, valued
at about $50; a carriage belonging to W.
R. Burnett, valued at $200; a boggy belong
ing to S.S. Slacker, valued at $100; and a
lot of carpets and other househoid goods be
longing to Slacker, valued at about $30.
Tbtse were all destroyed. In the stable were
a fine sleigh, a set of harness, and several
bushels of corn, all belonging to
William Clark, tbe saloonist, and
valued at about $100; which were also de
stroyed. Two fine bones belonging to Mr.
Clark were in the stable but they were gotten
out, but not before one of them was badly
scorched and bruised. The total loss on
buildings, carriages, &c, is about $759. The
amount of the insurance could lot be learned.
The doors to both buildings bad been locked
early in the evening, but the man who gave
the alarm claims that when he went to the
stable the door was open. He also says that
he could smell burning coal oil, and from all
tbe facts there is 10 doubt the fire was the
work of an incendiarist
