The Methodist church will this year
in December, celebrate the centennial anni

in this country. It is proposed that Metho
dists express their appreciation of the fact
"by various religious exercises during the

rather contributing to raise a centennial
fund, to be equally divided between the
missionary, the church extension societies,
and educational enterprises, one-third of the
amount to each, and the aggregate to be
two millions of dollars."

The Democrat! of Chester, Ills., have
rgtnizsd a society and christened it the
Randolph club. Many of the business
men of the town have joined it. The lo
cation is to make it a permanent institu
tion, holding regular meetings the year
around, keeping party organization in good
trim, debating party politics and educating
the young voters. Many prominent Illi
nois Democrats have been made honorary
members of the club. It would be a wise
aud timely mvu if the Democrats of all
other towm in Illinois would follow the
extmple of Chester. Young Democrats of
Cairo should take the hint.
A manly young sociaty man who makes
regular semi-weekly trips up town to "buz"
a girly young society girl tells how he
wickedly schemed, and successfully, too,
to beat the object of his interest at an inno
cent game ofseven-up; and in order that
others who may be addicted to like dissipa
tions may profit by this manly young man's
discovery and avoid doing likewise we
here "give the whole snap away : " While
playing this wicked young man told his
girl that every time she held the jack of
trumps her lover was thinking of her, and
thea he watched her face at each deal and
every time she blushed and looked pleued,
the wretch led out and caught her jack.
"Hazel Kirke," by the Madison Square
troupe at the Opera House last night, wss
patronized by a large audience and one
that could thoroughly appreciate so refined
a play when rendered in an unexceptiona
ble manner, as it was by this company.
he play was perhaps never more power
fully given. Every part was admirably
sustained, and the audience either went
wild with applause er was wrapped in
mute attention. Many were moved to tears
at the realistic portrsyals of anguish by
Miss Annie Russell as "Hazel Kirke." No
play or company ever gave better aatisfac
tion to an audience than did those ot last
night to the audience that witnessed them.
The Chicago Inter-ocean has said:
"Whatever it is takes us to the opera
obedience to fashion or pursuit of inclios-
tion, the inner nature takes new vitality
irom tne innuence unaer wmcb it comes.
Its asperities are soothed, its wants are
assuaged. The econscience sinks into
restful quiet, and the better emotions, the
nobler fancies, the purer thoughts come in
to play in spite of ourselves, even when the
music it of that sensuous sort that thrills
ana animates and fires." These words are
true. And why should the narmle deoend
for srtistie influences and enjoyments upon
we cuance coming of itinerant orgenixa
tionst Why thould not these entertain
mentsbe an everyday matter! Why should
not every city where, like here, th.ro ia an
abundance of home talent, have conttantly
within the easy reach of all classes of its
citizens these ennobling divertisementsl
Music halls and art galleries, accessible to
the poorest, promote peace and good order,
elevate the general social tone and abound
in all exalting influences. When will the
building of music halls, the support of
choral societies and the establishment of
art galleriea become the fashionable
caprice! The Woman's club and Library
association has done and is doing a noble
work in this direction and the completion
of the Safford Memorial will mark the
completion of a grand forward stride in
sll that pertains to literature and art in
About 2 o'clock yesterday morning
there was much excitement in the harbor.
It waa occasioned by the breaking loose of
a raft ef logs, away up in the bend, which
tore six empty barges and two loaded with
oil from their moorings at the coal dump,
which in turn came down the rapid cutrent
close along the shore and struck the steam
er City of Cairo and the steamer Powell,
which were lying at the wharf and at the
lower warehouse respectively. The City oi
Cairo had her nose split, and the Powell,
which wu just backing out, got one of the
barges under her wheel and waa rendered
helpless, in which condition she floated
down to the point into a brush thicket,
where, by chopping three or four ef the
paddles of the wheel, she waa released.
The steamer Success was sent down after
the barges, and she finally landed them all
near the point.
During the excitement in the harbor
yesterday morning, occasioned by the stray
barges, and while the tugs were assisting in
picking them up and releasing the Powell
from her predicament, a fight occurred on
one of the barges which might easily have
proven fatal for one or both participants.
Capt. Billy Short, of the tug that went to
the aid of the Powell, called to a man on
the barge to throw him a rope. The man
not only refused but abused Short in an out
rageous manner. The latter made a jump
for the man, who drew hia knife, when
Short picked up a sledge hammer and
struck at him. Fortunately the two stood
just a little too close together, and the man
received the handle instead of the hammer
on his neck, which knocked him down.
Short then jumped on the men, and while
he wu belaboring him with hia fists the
man wu using bis knife, but it was not
till Short got all the satisfaction he wanted
that he knew he was cut, and upon elimi
nation found a cut on his head, another on
the side ef his neck, which narrowly missed
an artery, and still another on his leg,
which, however, barely cut through his
pants. The mau got up and walked away,
going down on the Powell, and Capt. Short
was on duty as usual yesterday. .
Ipeeltl Corns pondance to The Bulletin :
San Bebkardino, Cal., February 1st,
1884. Before leaving Los Angeles we took
a drive out to Pasadena, noted as the para
dise of Los Angeles county. Our route
took us through East Los Angeles into a
line of bluffs northeast of the city. The
whole diatance of six miles or more is
lined with stakes denoting that all is laid
off in building lots, and we noticed that
miles of iron pipe were being laid to con
duct water from the mountains onto the
tillable lands. Along the road nice homes
were being improved and orchards set out.
Our road led up a canon and brought us
out into a most beautiful section of country
lying between a. line of bluffs and the
mountains. Pasadena is a town and settle
ment first improved by a colony from Indi
ana, about ten years ago. A scope of coun
try seme ten or twelve miles wide and ex
tending for many miles along the base of
the high, towering mountains, and lying
with a gentle slope, is a general description
of this beautiful section of country. A
large area of land has been laid out with
wide evenues running through, and lota
fronting on the same. Orange and other
citrous trees, with numerous other ever
green trees, and orchards and vineyards,
make up a picture pleasing to the eye. The
golden fruit, hanging mingled with the
deep green foliage, is something that must
be seen in order to realize its beauty. The
place ia improving very rapidly, and has
gone up higher in price than around Los
Angeles. A large hotel is in course of
erection, one mile south of the town, on a
high eminence, from whence a grand pano
ramic view spreads out on every side, even
away to the blue waters of the ocean, 25
miles south. The building is being put up
by an eaatern company, who expect to
spend $200,000 in its erection. A railroad
will soon connect Pasadena with Los An
geles, and, doubtless, at no distant day It
will be a suburb ot the city itself. E. F.
Hulburt, Esq., of Chicago, has a palatial
residence and fifteen acrea ef groutd sur
rounding it, laid out in serpentine walka
and planted in groves snd orchards, and
beautified with cypress hedges, flowering
shrubbery and lawns, that make it look
like an Eden indeed. Here he spends four
months of the winter with his fsmily,
while the rest of the year he lives in
Leaving Los Angeles via the main line of
the S. P. R. R., we came east to San Ga
brie!, whioh is also a section of

Mr. George Martin, a wealthy resident
and owner of the Marti House, near the
tbe Third Landing, bat for tome time bad
trouble with his wife, a comely woman, 80
years old, but looking much younger.
Tbey were married about eight years ago,
and have had five children. Tbreeoflhem
are dead. A boy ot about 7 and Minnie, 2
years old, still live. Mrs. Martin, It Is
said, was in tbe bablt ot keep
ing herself from home (or days, and seme
times weeks, at a time. Mr. Martin, bow
ever, always took ber back uutil about five
w.eks ago when she look her boy with her,
leaving tbe little girl behind. It could not
be ascertained whltbet she hsdgnne, but l
Is supposed tbat sbe camejto this city. Mr.
Mariio, wbo Is well acquainted wtlb all the
Justices and polloe ofnolals on tbe Island,
asked tbeir advioe, and tbey were ot tbe
opinion that he should let bis vsife go, and
should prevent her getting possession of
ber other child. Mr. Martin tbeu gave In
structions to a Mr. and Mrs. Ellis, bis bar
keeper aud housekeeper, not to allow Mrs.
Martin to enter tbe bouse, and under no
circumstances to permit ber to see be
child. On Tuesday afternoon he came to
New York. Mrs. Martin must bave

of bis departure, and also of his Intention
of not returning borne until midnight. At
9 o'clock In tbe evening' hack wu driven
up to the Martin bouse. In tt was Mrs.
Martin and a friend. Mrs. Martin was
somewhat disguised, so that Mr. Ellis, wbo
was behind the bar, did not at first recog
nize ber as sbe entered tbe saloon. "Is
Polly upitalrsf" sbe asked. Polly Is Mrs.
Ellis' first name. Mr. Ellis mechanically
answered "Yes," and It was only after
Mrs. Martin bad passed upstairs tbat be
remembered tbat be ought not to bave let
ber In. Mrs. Martin hurried Into tbe bed
room wbere lltue juinme was lying
asleep In tbe orib, attended by Mis.
Ellis. Tbe mother rushed to the crib,
toop up ber child, and without waiting to
drest It, tnatobed a sbawl, and wrapping
that around the little form, darted out of
tbe bouse. The shawl belonged to Mrs.
Ellis. Tbe latter waa too much surprised
to Interfere until Mrs. Martin bad gained
tbe street. Then sbe rusbed after ber,
shouting, "Stop thief I" In tbe street sbe
was mot by Mrs. Lynch, wbo kept her
back until Mrs. Martin bad entered the
back with ber oblld. Then Mrs. Lynch
baatlly sprang into tbe vehicle, whloh was
rapidly driven away. Mr. and Mrs. Ellis

of the shawl and trade a oharge of petit
Itrceny. On tfits oomplalnt an officer was
dlspatcbed to overtake tbe fugitives, and
ho found them In the waiting room of tbe
Tompkinsvllle landing, waiting tor tbe 11
o'clock boat ta bring them to the city. Tbe
mother was holding the cbiM in her arms.
The officer arrested Mrt. Martin, and, not
withstanding her tears and protestatlous
obliged her to go with him to Dunn's ho
tel, before Justice Kullman, where Mr.
and Mrs. Ellis were awaiting tbeni. Tbe
Justloe detained her until midnight, when
Mr. Martin arrived. Tbe Justice tbsn
opened court. Mrs. Kilts stated that the
had preferred the charge ot petit larceny
only to pi event Mrs. Martin from leaving
the Island with tbe oblld. She now with
drew tbe oomplalnt. Mr. Martin de
manded tbat little Minnie be returned to
him. The poor woman,

in ber arms, begged hard to be allowed to
retain it, but tbe Justice told ber tbat sbe
would bave lo apply to tbe courts for

to abduct It. He ordered her to give up
tbe child, and upon ber refusing to do so

Townsbnd, Pa., Feb. 7. Ia tbe days
of age eoaonUtg tbls village was on tbe
old State road, aad was aa Important coach
station, known as "Tbe Corners. " In ltW
Cyrus Miller came bore and put up a large
tavern, wblob made Ite owner rich. Miller
was one of three men who came to this
place together, tbe other two beiug J hn
A. Merrltt, a sawyer, and Lewis Dorr, a
carpenter. Miller also erected a saw mill
near tbe village, aad made Merrltt bis saw
yer. They wereslngularly Intimate, and
for over forty years tbey spent
every evening, except Sunday, togeth
er. Dorr is a widower, bU wife and
two children bavins; been lost by tbe sink
ing of a propeller on Lake Erie in 1830.
With tbe decay of staare coaching, owing to
tbe building of railroads, tbe business of
tbe Miller tavern only consisted of limited
local trade. Tbe mill alto oeased to be
profitable years ago, but the owner kept It
running and It
KKVER KNEW A DAT 07 REST.
Merrltt bad grown gray as tbe sawyer and
do other person bad ever sawed afoot of
lumber In tbe mill. Two years ago old Mr.
Miller retired from business owing to fail
ing health and deeded bis tavern and mill to
bis onlyjson. William. Tbe small amount
ofjbuslness, tba;Cororrs brought did not
satisfy tbe younger Miller and be decided
to sell the property and go elsewhere. This
was strongly opposed by his father, wbo
said tbat be bad but one wish, to die In tbe
old tavern, wiloh be bad never
cbantred ij any respeot snd which
is one of tbe few typloal sta;e coach tav
ern remaining In tbe country. On Mon
day of la.t week, however, the son con
cluded a sale of the tavern and mill to Oeo.
Ilendershot, and when old Mr. Miller was
Uld that tbe tavern must be vacated by
March 1st, be was prontrated with a ner
vous sbock, and died on Thursday, aged
75. Iiis old friend, Lewis Dorr, wbo was
five years his senior, bad occupied one
room in the tuvernjhe bad built since 1840,
and bad never slept in any other. Friday
morning bit dead body was discovered ly
ing under tbe turnpike bridge across Tru
man's creek with bis face burled In tbe
water. Tbe bridge was undergoing re
pairs and a narrow walk of planks wu tbe

IT WAS SUPPOSED
that Door, while brooding over tbe death
of bis friend, bad forgotten the condition
of the bridge and fallen throunh, although
many believed tbat be bad suicided. Sat
urday night last tbe cry of fire was raised
in this place for tbe first time in its histo
ry, and It was found tbat the old Miller saw
mill was in flames. It was soon consumed
vi iih Its contents. Sunday morning Sawyer
Merrilt called on the new owner of tbe mill
and banded him a paper wblub contained a
statement tbat tbe mill bad been run at a
lots for more than ten years, and tbat tbe
loss by the fire was $625, with no Insur
ance. The old sawyer then aeked tbe own
er If It was true that be paid young Miller
)700 for tbe property, and was answered In
tbe affirmative. "Then here Is $700 to
make good your loss," said Merrltt, hand
ing over tbat amouut. Upon belug aaked
for an explanation the sawyer said be bad
helped build ihe mill forty-four years ago
and had never missed a day's work lo it
from the time tts wheel started. The sale
ol tbe property bad resulted In the death of
HIS TWO I.IFE-l.ONG FRIENDS

"I knew," said Merrltt, "that If I saw
another man in ibe mill I would not live for

buried Sunday afternoon, side by side, In
