Weeds of the worst sort, in rank luxuri
ance, grow in those places, and bloom and
die after having produced seeds for thou
sands more of their kind. The mass of
rottenness ladens the air with pestilence,
and when the gentle southern zephyrs
blow, this breath of malaria is wafted to
the nostrils and into the lungs and bodies
of citizens who live in the other part of
town. Something ought to be done to
prevent the nesroes from depositing their
tilth in such spots, and some means ought
to be devised to annihilate the myriad
weeds which grow there.
A train load of excursionists passes
through here trom the south to-day en
route for Cnicago. They are of the order
of Knights Templar, who congregate in
that city from all over the country for the
purpose of pleasure, and of contesting for
a fine flag nnd sword. It is the triennial
meeting of the order, and the chief exer
cises will be an exhibition of their skill in
drill. The sword is made trom the finest
steel, and etched with numerous designs,
and the words, "First Prize, Chicago, 1880."
The hilt is a beautiful piece of jeweler's
work. It is ot the heaviest gold plating,
covered with Templar's emblems, and with
diamonds, emeralds and rubies. Just
above the blade is a representation of Con
stantino's tent and dream. The arms of tlw
hilt end in triangles, and are embossed
with tho cross and the crown. Above the
arms the handle is formed of a knight in
full armor in the first movement of draw-
tig the sword. The sheath is mado of
uickel, heavily plated with gold. The
sword will cost about $000, and will be the
absolute p-operty of the company winning
it. Tho flag to be contested for on the
same occasion will have to be won three
successive times. Quito a number of
Cairoites have already left for Chicago, and
more will join the excursionists to-day.

Dear Bulletin : Permit a few scatter
ing thoughts a little space in your columns
Incur article of last week you mado us say
in the close of the article, "from whom they
used to borrow corn meal." It was writ
ten, "from whom they used to borrow and
loan meal." We did not intend to cast any
reflections on any ot our neighbors, but it
is a fact that no sooner has one allowed the
demon suspicion to take possession ot a
person's mind, than it perverts their under
standing and taints all their faculties
Haunting them by day and by night, bring
ing perpetually before them the odious and
disquieting forms which it has raised up, it
bliickeua every appearance to his view,
gives to trifles, which are in themselves
light as nir, the weight of full confirmation,
till what was at first a dubious surmise, or
a slight displeasure, rises at length
into full belief and implacable fury
Hence are families, nnd even whole
communities torn with the violent convul
sions; believing others to be our enemies
we will, of course, make thetn such. Let
our caufou be ever so great, the asperity
of our thoughts will often break out in our
behavior and in return for suspecting and
hating we will incur suspicion and hatred,
besides the external evils which we draw
upou ourselves arising from alieniated
friendship, broken. couflJence and open
enmity. The suspicious temper is one ot
the worst evils which any man can suffer.
The man of eandor enjoys hs situation
whatever it is with cheerfulness and fpeace
We sometimes fear that around Elco
some people give too much to their sus
picions aud give vent to their feelings in
uttering unkind words; we hope that the
people will stop and reflect and let us put
more confidence in each other.
The residence of Mr. James Standard was
burglarized and about $70, belonging to

dollars belonging to Mr. S., and the store
key of Durham & Cauble and the store key
of Putnam & Standard was taken from his
pint's pocket, while the family slept; the
burglar entered the house through a
window. Tho same thiet was supposed t'
have entered the residence of Mat Ander
son at' Mill Creek, three miles north of
Elco, aud extracted from Mr. A.'s pocket a
gold watch aid $12 in cash. There was a
suspicious character here yesterday after
noon and at a late hour last night. The

AN EDIFYING EPISTLE.
ON THE ''STATE OP AFFAiKS" AT THEBES. A
CANDIDATE WANTED WHO MFOU01IT, BLE1
A few days ago Mystic was so fortunate us
to be again present at one of the most in
teresting sessions of the Thebes general
assembly; I happened in just after roll-call.
A quorum being present, the assembly at
onio proceeded to business. The president
called for the report of committees; In re
sponse the chairman of the committee on
tho state of affairs came forward ami read
in his most'eloquentsirain the report, which
was as follows:
Whereas, The best efforts and energy
of your committee has tor four long weeks
been exerted in tho pre-eminently dillicult
task of devising ways and means by which
our votes will bring each individual voter
tho most net cash has resulted in the fol
lowing: We find that candidates as a gen
eral rule, though there are some exceptions,
spend a great deal of money to get votes,
but somebody else gets it besides tbe mass
of tho voters, they, only get a little Jersey
lightning, while the very "Hon. Dram
seller" gets the clear cash. Your committee
would therefore recommend the following
amendment to tho constitution:
First. Every voter liquoring or cigaring
at the expense of any candidate shall be
disfranchised, but may take the price of
tho liquoring or cigaring, or of both, ih
cash without losing h'n right to vote.
Second. That whenever a candidate
offers to "set 'em up" he shall bo ineligible
toauy offico of profit or trust within the U.S.,
out a candidate may offer the voters tho
price of tho drinks or cigars in lawful mo
ney of tho United States without being lia
ble to disfranchisement or ineligibility to
office. Your committee hold that this
amendment would tend to give to the voter
a more reasonable chance to get his just
proportion of the money disbursed by can
didates during aa electioneering campaign.
Your committee would further report on
tho state of affairs, that the great American
nation wants tho highest standard of xlns
and patriotism in tho person of the can
didate for tho office ot president; and
whereas, the 2 great polytickle parties have
failed to present in their candidates for that
high office the full measure of that high
standard, though they came within one of
it both candidates having fought and bled
for their country, though they didu't die
for it- aud as this is an essential point,
therefore be it resolved, that this assembly
nominate Col. David Crockett he fought,
bled and died fighting tiic Mexicans.
Your committee has also investigated the
census man, and beg leave to submit to
your honorable body the result. Tho popu
lation of Lxander county will probably foot
up to 13,000. The census man counted all
the stock and their products, aud put down
the number of poinds of butter and dozen
of eggs, but as he didn't foot them up.
your honorable body will be under the ne
cessity of awaiting the pleasure of the cen
sus bureau for results on eggs, butter
Improvements in tho Granger bu-iuess is
immense, forty-acre farms are run with
$2,'j worth of farming utensils and ma
chinery. How does that strike your,
Hon. Body as a big stride in the march of
agricultural science anil enlightened civili
zation? It is further found that the popu
lation of this county, in variety, will com
pare favorably with any other h the stat
Every trade aud profession is here repre
sented, no! there is one profession which is
not found on the schedule of the enumer
ators within the United States, and yet
there isn't a member of the male persua
sion of 10 years and upwards who is not
most aDVous to have that profession recog
nized in his person, in fact, would consider
himself grossly insulted should any one
have the temerity to express a doubt about
it. This profession is generally termed
"gentlemen." Seeing this profession is en
tirely ignored by the census takers, your
committee would respectfully recommend
that a law be passed requiring the census
to be taken over again and to give strict
and particular instruction to the enumera
tors not to admit the profession of "gentle
men ;" to all of the foregoing, your com
mittee asks your favorable consideration.
The gentleman having returned to his seat
the president stated that the report of the
committee on the state of a flairs was so
full nnd comprehensive that it would be a
waste of precious time to discuss it, and
would recommend it to be adopted;
also that this assembly tender the the com
mittee a vote of thanks and recommend
them to the speaker of the national house
of representatives ami to the president of
senate for a like position in the next ses
sion of congress. Upon motion, the recom
mendation from the president and the re
port was both adopted.
The savory odors from a neighboring
kitchen admonished the members that the
hour for adjournment was at hand; recog.
nizing this fact, the assembly adjourned at
Thebes, Aug. 10th 1880.
Owing, as before stated, to a lack of
space, we have been unable to do justice to
the occasion of the marriage which took
place at tho German Lutheran church last
Thursday evening. The affair had been
long rumored among our German citizens,
and was the theme of everyday conversa
tion among them because of the promi
nence and popularity of the grooms and
brides. The preparations for the occasion,
by them and their friends, were extensive
and began long before the event was ex
pected to come off; and as the timo ap
proached, the interest increased. Mr. Lohr
is one of our most energetic and success
ful business men, whose reputation as a
man of intelligence, strict integrity and
general high moral character is not con-
fiued to this city, county or state. Ho en
joys the respect of all who know
him. His bride, Miss Amauda Hahn,
is a young lady whoso youth has
been spent in this community and, being
ndustrious, intelligent and possessed of all
the high womanly qualities which tend to
make marriage a blessing, she is eminently
fitted to enter that holy state. For these
reasons both have the heartiest good wishes
of their innumerable acquaintances. Mr.
Eugene Parks, of the other party, is not a
citizen of this place but of Charleston, Mo.,
where ho is respected and liked tor his
many good qualities by all tho best people
He is a young man of correct hnbits and
unblemished character. His bride, Miss
Anna Grindler, has lived here since her
youth; has maintained a comfortable
pecuniary independence through her own
efforts for several years, and through her
amiable nature and many estimable
qualities, has mado for herself hosts
of sincere friends, who, while wishiug
her life's choicest blessings, uro loth to
part w ith ber even at that turn in her ex
istence which opens to her a career
of new happ'-icss, So much for tho
characters of the actors iu this lit
tle drama. After tho ceremony
had been pci formed by Rev. E. Knappc,
according to the rites of the German
church, the party and their friends re
paired to tho residence of Mrs. Ilaho,
mother of the bride of Mr. Lohr, on Sev
enth street, where they celebrated tbe
eveut with music, feasting and general
merriment. After an hour or so spent there,
they went to the handsome residence of
Mr. A, Lohr, on Eighth street, and there
the celebrities were continued far into the
night. The music was furnished by Mr.
Eiscnberg and his excellent 6tnng band;
full justice was dono to a sumptuous re
past; a wild charivari was among the en
livening influences; good feeling ran high,
and hence the nflair will long remain fresh
in the memories of all who attended.
The Bulletin repeats its congratula
tions and wishes both couples more than
an abundance of the usual blessings.
The following very costly and magnifi
cent presents were received by Mr. Lohr
aud wife :

And wblapered aoftly low,
''My darling, do you know
Why the alugercbarmi one aof
Decauau his life's frail golden thread
II m Intertwined ita light
With Jewell of the night,
That dwell near aweot diceum,"
Tho maiden imlled In hit dark, proud face,
And gavo an answering tone,
But ouly tbe tinging bird.
High up in the branches, heard;
And only ior the roao-red traco
Of Blnabet on her cheek,
There wui naught left to ipeak
The uotet of iweot diceum.
Ilor hair wat wavet of golden thado,
Iter oyea were thady blue,
Her llpa were tcuiptlugtoo,
Hat they'll never tolltoyoa
Tho wordi Iboy Mid at on they ttrayed;-
So toft and low tht tons
At though meant forona alone
Juit like the tweet dlceutn.
