Our citizens will probably remember
Mr. C. C. Chapin, pastor of the Baptist
church at Brenham, Texas, w ho was here
some years ago and conducted a series of
meetings at Turner hall. Ho will be here
on Sunday, the 10th inst., and preach at

Yesterday, while the little twelve year
old girl of Mr. Sullivan, who keeps a gro
cery on the corner of Fourteenth and Wal
nut streets, was running along the Bidewalk
one square above the Btorc, a colored boy
thrust a stick in front ot her, which caused
her to stumble and fall otr the Bidewalk' in
to the sipo water. She would probably
have drowned had not a stranger, who hap
dencd to be passing, assisted her out.
-In conclusion of an item in Friday's
Billetin, giving an account of the verdict
of the coroner's jury over tho body of the
old colored man, Ronier, it was said that
our county poor were badly treated and
that the fault lay with the law and with
the county commissioners as much as it did
wtth Dr. AV ood. The two latter have been
heard from. Dr. Wood denies empbatical-
l) tnat no is to blame, and the commis
sioncrs have done likewise. Where, now,
is the champion ot the law? Stand forth,
Justus, and defend tho honor of your call
ing against the aspersions cast upon it by
the over callumacious press! The
fraternity and the outraged law look to
you as the embodiment of their lore, the
able exponent of their mysterious power,
the bold permeator of their iniquitous
rights they call upon you, sir, to vindi
cate them in the tace of the intermediate
reprehensibleness of the circumstantial evi
dence surrounding the case. Come, Justus,
let justice be done though the heavens full
Day before yesterday Mr. DePue, of
the Illinois Central railroad, engaged about
ten men in this city at the rato of seventy
five dollars per uianth, who are to report at
the office of the company two or three
times each day and keep themselves' in
readiness at all times to takj; the positions
ot train men on a small railroad running
between Quincy and some other point. The
reason of this is that the train men ot this
road belong to the same Union to which
the train men on a small road running into
Chicago belong. The men on the Chicago
road have struck for higher wages because
they believed the company could aflord to
pay higher wages. The men on tho Quincy
road have not struck they aro satisfied
with their wages but should the Chicago
road men see fit, they will order the Quincy
road men to quit work also aud, according
to tho rules of the Union, the Quincy road
men must obey the order. The Quincy
railroad company is, therefore, preparing
to meet the emergency likely to be made
and has asked Mr. DePuo
to keep the requisite number of
men in readiness to take tho
places of their present men, whenever they
receive orders from the strikers on tho Chi
cago road to throw up their situations.
Yesterday evening's rain interfered
somewhat with meeting of tho
young peoples temperance club at
Reform hall, but yet the
attendunco was good, it being well known
that tho attractions presented would com
pensate most any ono for a considerable
sacrifice of comfort. Tho exercises were
opened with a song by tho audience.
Miss Eva Shcpard followed with an inter
esting historical question. The next
foaturo and one of the most interesting of
tho evening was tho charade, in which
Misses Jcnnio Wilson, Annio Jones, Anuio
Wilson and Katio Howard took part..
Aftor much guessing, "Ingrain Carpet"
was discovered to bo tho subject. Misses
Maud Rittonhouso and Eva fihnnnnrd then
road the local itoms ot a paper-their own
wmposmon-wincli proved to bo very in
tortainlng. Tho heavy.
Itorlals woro reserved for tho next meeting.
anno conclusion ot these exorcises Col.
Iiob't Lowry, who was present from the be
ginning of tho .mooting, uiado a few ro
marks which commanded tho closest atten
tion of all present. Another song
was eung after the Col's remarks
and then the meeting adjourned.
An incident that was amusing, but not
entirely without an inkling of sadness, pre
sented itself to our circuit clerk, Alex. H.
Irvin, yesterday. A young couple entered
his office in the fore part of tho day in a
seemingly embarrassed state ot mind.
They were a rather innocent looking young
man and a rattier good looking young girl,
about twenty-one and eighteen years of
age respectively, Aftar taking a hurried
survey of the office, the former stepped up
to tho circuit clerk and introduced himself
as Mr. Walcot. He stated that ho was from
Tipton county, Tennessee, and that hia fair
companion was from Memphis, Tennessee,
and was hia wife; that they had been mar
ried about two-weeks, had just arrived
here on a boat, and that they wanted a
divorce. To further questions from Mr.
Irvin the young groom said that it was not
ho that wanted the divorce, but his wife,
who utterly refused to have anything what
ever to do with him. The youthful bride
affirmed this and added that rIip
had been forced by her
mother to marry her husband
and that she didn't like him a bit. "On
the way up here, on the steamboat," she
continued,"bc threatened to throw me over
board. I was raised decent and I ain't
agoin' to be scandalized in that way." The
young man explained that while on the
steamboat, bound for here, liis wife refused
to talk to him, to walk with him, to sit by
him, or to eat with him, but persisted in
treating him as a stranger and his entreat
ies with 81 cnt contemot. 11a Inar
his temper a little bit and told her
that if she intended to continue
to treat him thus he would pick her un and
jump overboard if he couldn't live with
her be would have the satisfaction ot dy
ing with her. Mr. Irvin told them that it
was not in his power to sever the bonds
that held them together, and advised them
to try again to become reconciled to one
another and to live as man and wife ought.
Barkis was vrillin'," but "Peggotty" posi-
tively refused, saying that there was no use
in talking, she just wouldn't live with him,
aud thus they left the office together in
search of some one to lift from their necks
the yoke that had so Boon begun to gall
THE CIRCUS TO-DAY.
DON'T WAIT, 13LT OO.
The children large and small will shake
their savings banks for the last time this
morning before making the final draw
upon their contents, and why? because the
circus lif s come, and boys who have coun
ted the weeks and days and then the hours
until the 3rd of Mny with D.tn Costello
should come.will think they have met with
the greatest trouble of their lives if they
cannot beg or borrow the amouat necessary
to buy a ticket, and who could blame them?
when even boys with gray hairs, heroes of a
hundred circuses, would not for the world
miss the wonders of Dan Costello's greatest
organization, the herd of trained Durhams;
the handsome horses and the magnificient
riding of tho champion riders of the world.
To-day must be remembered as a great day
to those who lovo the old-fashioned circus.
