Not Because He Was Sorry for His
Shis, bat Because He Lost
Sparkling Lou Sent up for Shining Around
a White Man and Then Trying to
Stab Him. i ' -
It is the bull pen ; in the bull pen Is a
strong man; but watch him as he weeps; It
is sad to see a strong man weep; but why
does he bow his head and weep? Is it be
cause he has been 6horn of his strength,
knocked out, as it were, by the modern
Delilah of justice: is this why his heart is
bowed down? Not much; he has been fined
$5 for being paralyzed drunk, and he has
not the wherewithal to liquidate; look at his j
face, it has the appearance of having been
tackled by a horse rake. But hear him
shriek. His name, he says, is Mickie Mea
hen, aud he is from Pa-ree; not the Pa-ree
of France, but the Paris of Egypt in southern
Illinois. He came here to meet his
Bon, who has been working in the woods, and
who was to meet the old man in St. Paul
and receive his blessing. On reaching this
city he fell into the hands of thieves and they
Oiled him full of red eye and relieved him of
his wallet. The court hears his story; the
quaility of mercy is not like a lemon
strainer; the old man is admonished sternly
and ordered to go and prepare the fatted veal
for his son.
"I wculd that I were a bee that I might sip,
The golden honey from that ripe, red lip."
Thus said the poet of the bull pen as, with
ecstatic bliss, he beheld the shining eyes and
dusky form of Lou Sparks Lou is a damsel
of the colored persuasion who is great on the
mash; her castle is at Fifth and Minnesota
streets, and Wednesday evening she received ;
a call from a pale-faced youth named j
A. B. Mortle; the latter is quite a good look- j
ing white man, but he is probably no better '
than the company be was found in. About
3 o'clock yesterday morning he rushed into
the street arrayed in his nether garment
and yelled murder. Officer Morphy rushed
up and asked what the row was about, when
hi- said it was nothing. An investigation
showed that he and his dusky mistress had
been fighting, during which the latter stab
bed him where he lived with a knife. He
was only scratched and they were both
given the rush to the tower. The court said
be was ashamed of such dalliance and they
wore sent over for thirty days each. He
will lose his fine moustache at the hands of
the workehouse barber.
In explanation she testified that she was
mending his coat with a needle and penknife
when he happened to fall on the blade ala
Brutus, and stabbed himself.
Tue case of E. Walther, charged with as
sault, was continued until to-day.
A. Norman is quite, a marksman, and
once in a while he forages for his neighbor's
chickens. He was up yesterday for shooting
Capt. Burger's hens, and when Officer Mc-
Bride went to arrest him he locked the copper
ill the house and it is said on the quiet that
Mrs. Norman pitched into him and gave him
the grand bounce. lie said he. had a permit
to shoot from the mayor, but all the same he
was put under $350 bonds to stop his funny
Win. Arbuckel had a fuss with an officer
over his dog; he refused to take out a license
•when they yanked him up. He was loath to
comply with the ordinance but when the
witch of justice was about to descend on
him he made up his mind and promised to
take out the license.

Return of an Accomplished Musician.
Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas PoUgeiser and Mr.
Charles B. Pottgeiser returned to the city
yesterday from Boston, where Mr. Pottgeiser
and his wife went a few weeks ago to meet
the latter on his return from Europe. Mr.
Charles Pottgeiser returned from Germany
about two weeks ago, after an absence of
over a year, having for some time past been
completing his musical studies under the
best auspices of the old world. Previous to
his departure for the celebrated musical
schools of Europe he attended a strict course
of studies in Prof. Petersilia's famous musi
cal academy, of Boston, graduating from
that institution with the highest honors. As
a well earned and deserved souvenir
of the latter event he received a diploma
haviug successfully completed the four year
course prescribed for pianoforte playing, and
before leaving it was proffered the high
honor of a professorship in the academy from
which he graduated with such distinguished
honors. He was also presented with a
costly and beautiful gold medal, on the
front of which is tbe monogram of the aca
demy and the name of Prof. Petersilla, and
on the reverse side the inscription, "Di
ploma medal-; awarded to Chas. B. Pottgeiser
for successfully completing the course in
piano playing." The. medal is richly en
traved and .presents an elegant appear
It goes without saying that Mr. Pottgeiser
is one of the most accomplished and skillful
pianists in the northwest, a position which
bai been achieved only by the most long and
arduous study. It is understood that an ef
fort will be made to have him open an acad
emy for the teaching of piano playing in St.
Paul, and it is to be sincerely hoped that he
may be induced by the liberal minded and
music loving citizens of St. Paul to locate in
this city. There is ample room for such an
institution and he should be encouraged and
patronized to the fullest extent.

THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE. FRIDAY MOMTIKG, SEPTEMBER 28,1884,
BLUE EAETH CITY.
A Description of the Capital Town of
Faribault County— lts At
tractions, Thrift and
[Special Correspondence of the Globe. 1
Blub Ea.rtii City, Sept. 24. — The people
of Southern Minnesota claim, perbap3 with
some reason, that this section of the state
has been to a certain extent neglected by the
newspaper press of Bt. Paul, or at least a
portion of it. That while the country north
and west of this city has been lauded to the
skies the beautiful lands watered by the Blue
Earth, the Zuuibro, the Minnesota and Cedar
have been comparatively "unhotiored and
unsung." It is not the design of this article
to give a description of all that portion of the
state, but to speak particularly of one of the
many flourishing towns to be found in South
Blue Earth City Is the county 6eat of Fari
bault county, and has a population of 1,200.
It is situated at the forks of the east and west
branches of the Blue Earth river, amidst a
profusion of natural and artificial shade
trees, which give it certainly the appearance
of a forest city. Its natural location is ex
cellent, its water power ample for manufac
turing purposes, its market facilities good, as
the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha
runs direct from north to south. The streets
run at right angles, and are clean and well
graded. The private residences are neat and
substantial, and in some instances very ele
gant and attractive. The public buildings
are the court house, sheriff's residence and
jail, built in the same block on a beautiful
natural eminence in the northwestern part
of the town. The court house is two stories
high, built of brick, and is substantial and
complete in all its appointments. The sher
iff's residence and jail — one building — is
built of Mankato brick, two stories high, and
has more the appearance of a gentleman's
private residence than of a public edifice.
The court bouse block is nicely laid out, and
adorned with evergreens and natural shade
trees, which add greatly to its attractions.
The public school building is of brick, two
stories in height, and contains
seven large rooms. The cost of buildings
and grounds has been between $14,000 and
$15,000. The school is in charge of Prof.
Geortre, principal and superintendent, who
has occupied his present position for several
years. The yearly enrollment nearly reaches
300, the daily attendance 230 to 240. The
English branches, natural sciences, higher
mathematics, Greek and Latin are embraced
in the course which prepares the student for
the state university. It is a good school, of
which the people are justly proud. The
churches are the Catholic, Presbyterian,
Methodist, German Evangelist Association,
Episcopal and Lutheran. All of these socie
ties, except the Lutheran, have large and
commodious edifices, particularly the Catho
lics, whose building is of brick built at a cost
of $15,000. There are two public halls, that
of Ericsrud & Hagen and G. S. Converse,
the latter having a seating capacity of 300.
The opera hall in the upper story of the
Ericsrud <fc Hagen block is the finest that can
be found outside of our largest cities.
It is not too much to say that, excepting
St. Paul, Minneapolis and Stillwater it is un
equalled by any other hall in the state. It
occupies the whole upper floor, 40xC0, with a
stage 40x16, and has a seating capacity of
400. The scenery is grand, the appoint
ments complete, and the accoustic, proper
ties of the hall perfection. It is the most
beautiful little opera house we have ever
PUBLIC UnitART. ,
The city has a public library of over 500
volumes, to which additions are made from
time to time. Two newspapers, the Pout and
Bee, both Republican in politics, furnish the
l<K:al news. The practicing attorneys are J.

county ' officials, Hon. J. A. Kiester,
judge of probate, who, by the
way, has a complete history of Faribault
county ready for the press; \V. W. White,
auditor; A. Anderson, treasurer; 11. J.
Neal, clerk of courts; S. P. Brown, register
of deeds, A. Cummincs, sheriff, and B. W.
Richards, county superintendent.
Smith & Gilbert, W. H. Bates and F. A.
Sazton are engaged in the manufacture and
repair of wagons, buggies, sleds, etc. The
"Blue Earth" wagon of W. 11. Bates is well
known all over the state. There are two
flouring mills, one steam the other water
power, each manufacturing by patent roller
process and doing a good business. One
brewery of limited capacity, and the usual
number of carpenter, blacksmith shops, etc.,
finishes the list in this department. There
are two lumber yards doing quite an exten
sive business, and three elevators, viz: rail
road elevator, that of C. M. Sly, and Heller
& Kiugsby. The stock dealers are
Temple & Kamran and Smith &
Kobbs. The mercantile interests are
represented by S. Teskey, Anderson & Son,
G. S. Converse, Ericsrud & Hagan, F. W.
Wilmeit and Cole Bros., dealers in general
merchandise. Hardware stores of South &
Bishop and Kaupp and Kabe. Groceries, A.

Ailing and Hirscb. Each of the firms named,
in their several departments, carry a full
line of goods, but we wish to notice as espe
cially worthy of mention the business block
of Ericsrud A Hagan, Cole Bros., South &
Bishop, and Anderson & Son. These build
ings are large double stow, built of brick;
those of South and Bishop, and Anderson &
Son, having plate glas3 fronts. There are
thr^e harness shops, L. N. Nichols, Win.
Driblo and F. Aint'.t. Two merchant tailors,
Jno. Weir and E. Kenstec. One barber
shop, J. 11. Voli-ker, whose skill as a ton
soriitl artist is unexcelled. Two skating
rinks and three hotel? — the Constant bouse,
the Baker house and the City . hotel. The
traveling public can be well accommodated
at either of these. We must not omit a
notice of the poultry establishment of C. F.
Franklin. It is one of the new enterprises
in this enterprising place. Thongh not two
years old it promises great returns. Mr.
Franklin has two incubators, one
with a capacity of 500, the other
of 250. In these be hatches bis «;3pSr bj
keeping them at a temperature of '102 Fabr.
These incubators are his own invention and
answer the purpose admirably. He keeps
all the best breeds of chic ken » and has now
about 1,000. His ecres and poultry are
marketed in St. Pad and Minneapolis. His
cnterpise in this direction has added a new
feature to the industries of Blue Earth City.
Taken as a whole. Blue Earth City is strong
healthy growing town. It is backed
up by a fanning community j that
intelligent, moral, industrious ■■- and •
law abiding. It has never outgrown its •
surroundings, and has not therefore exper- ,
ienced the the reaction which comes to towns
of abnormal growth. The surrounding
country is pleasant and fertile, and those |
wishing homes in a favorable location can
suit themselves here, if any where.
A False Alarm.
A telephone message from Smith & Co.'s
wood vyrd office at the Seven corners at 3:33
yesterday afternoon gave a still alarm of fire
to the department who put in a prompt ap
pearance at that place and were informed
that an employee had notified the office that
the company's wood yard was on fire at the
foot of Chestnut street. On reaching that
point no one seemed to know anything
about a fire in (he yard or anywhere else,
the department having been brought oat on
a false alarm.
Go to The Shades," IS. East Seventh street.
An Exciting Runaway.
An exciting runaway took place on East
Third street about five o'clock yesterday ev
ening, which almost resulted in the most dis
astrous consequences. About the hoar
named a team attached to a farmer's wagon
became frightened above the elevator on
West Third street, and started down the
street . at a terrific rate of speed.
Just before reaching the elevator. the run
away collided with a burzy containing a
lady and two children. They were thrown
to the street, bat fortunately sustained ao
injury, their buggy, being damaged, how
ever. ' The team ran down Third street to Jack-
Eon. where another collision took place, this
time also with a buirery one of the wheels of
which was taken off. At the junction of
Slbley street the " runaways collided with a
telegraph pole, and this time they became
detached from the wagon. The latter was
smashed into splinters almost, and the team
was cough t near the freight house.
Opening" Performance of the Great
Tragedian Frederick Warde.
It is to regretted that the opening per
formance of Frederick Warde at the Grand
lastn ight, was not accorded a larger - recep
tion. The audience that greeted the first ap
pearance of the star in this city, was only
moderate in size but the actor himself could
not asked more by way of ■ cordial applause
aud sincere appreciation. Although new to
St. Paul andlences as a star, Mr. Warde has
justly earnedthe high dramatic distinction he
has achieved by • years of • pa
tient and arduous study, and
his performances while engaged in support-
Ing McCullogh, Barrett and other distin
guished stars have won for him the highest
The attraction was Sheridan Knowles'
great tragedy of the Roman father "Vir
ginus," a drama in which Mr. McCullogh
has especially attained the highest distinc
tion. In referring to Mr. Warde's concep
tion of the great centurion a comparison
with the latter is not invidious, and while the
impersonation may not rise to the complete
height attained by McCullogh, lacking per
haps in finish, it has merits every
bit as imposing and . admirable.
But there are other qualities that mark the
similitude between these two great actors.
In physique, make-up, expression, tone and
gesture Mr. Warde recalls very vividly the
"Virginius" of McCullougb, with the ad
vantage that he infuses greater force and
vigor into the role. He is indeed admirably
suited to the part, and in some of the most
impassioned flights he rises to classic gran
deur. One does not see him at his
best in . the tender ' passages
in the first act, but later on he becomes ideal
ized, grand and impressive. He was especi
ally fine in the scene in the third act, where
he sees the body of Dentatus, and his scene
with Lucius in this act was most graphic and
painful. Later on in the forum scene he im
presses by his nobility, dignity of bearing
and Spartan courage, while the scenes in the
last act where he is seen dethroned of rea
son, is given with magnificent force and
finish. The last act is made grand
and fearfully imposing by the manner in
which he seeks sublime revenge. ' The sup
port was excellent. Mr. Henry Aellng en
acted the roll of Icilius in a powerful and
pleasing manner, and the Appius of Mr.
Robert C. Hudson was as forceful and fin
ished as the repulsive roll can be made.
The Virginia of Miss Willett was marked
by a tender grace and finish which character
izes her a3 an admirable actress in all res
Mr. Borton was good as Cauis Claudius, as
he always is, and the support is clever
The tragedy was superbly mounted and
the costumes were appropriate.
This evening "Richard III," will be given
and there should be a lajge audience.
Mr. Scott, the manager of the Opera bouse
has been sending around to the patrons of
this place of entertainment, a neat little
tinted card, setting forth the plays in which
the great Joseph Jefferson will appear, com
mencing next Monday evening. The sale
of seats will commence this morning at the
box office in the Opera house.
Funeral of Louis Loyd Hubbell.
The funeral of the esteemed young man,
Louis Loyd Hubbell, whose death was an-
nounced in Wednesday's Globs, took place
from the residence of his father at 227 Day
ton avenue yesterday forenoon. The fu
neral was especially sad, owing to the ab
sence of the father of the deceased — James
B. Hubbell Esq. Mr. Ilubbellleft home last
Thursday for a trip to Montana and is some
where in the mountains beyond the reach of
the telegraph, lie Is expected to reach
Helena to-day, where a tele
gram announcing his great affliction awaits
him. When be left home his son was not
considered in the least dangerous, and hissud
den death was as great a shock to the family
at home as it will be to the absent father.
The funeral ceremonies called a large con
course of deeply sympathizing friends to the
family residence on Dayton avenue yester
day forenoon. The religious exercises were
conducted by Rev. Maurice Edwards, of the
Dayton avenue Presbyterian church, with
which the family are connected, and Rev.
Dr. Dana, of Plymouth Congregational.
There was a profusion of choice floral offer
ings which more than covered the casket,and
marked the esteem and affection

A email but appreciative audience attended
the second organ concert given by Samuel
A. Baldwin at the First Baptist church last
evening. The programme, though lacking
in variety, was nevertheless entertaining j
and enjoyable. The opening number for i
the organ, "Fantasie and Fugue, in G mi- I
nor," by Bach, one of the finest as well as
the most attractive of his compositions,
showed the skill and acquired technique of
Mr. Baldwin to advantage— the theme
in the Fugue . being dis
tinctly marked throughout, and
altogether the selection was admirably ren
dered. No. 2, a pleasing song of Ellliot's
by Mr. De Lacy, was well 'adapted to his !
voice and thoroughly enjoyed. The "Grand '
Sonata" by Rcuhkr. for the organ, wa3 most !
effective in its .ins? melodies and in the j
grandeur of its peculiar harmony, Miss
GHdden, in "Song Without Words" by
It -eckel, W56 as usual delightful and received
the hearty appreciation of the audience, and
she responded to her encore with "Jamie,"
o.'lt ballad by Jlalloy. Varia
tions for Organ, by Hesse, a
lighter work, was quite captivating with its
embellished raelodie?. Mr. White sans* his
number, "Maid of Athens," very creditably,
and wa9 followed by an ''Adagio for the
Organ," by Merkel, which was expressively
interpreted. No. 8, "The Mariners," was [
well •v.-'i by the vocalists of the evenine, j
the programme concluding with Rossini's
"Overture to William Tell," arranged by |
DuJlcj Buck. Much ere is due to Mr.
Baldwin for the fine entertainment?, and it •
is to- be. regretted that the benefit of his talent !
is jorra to bt # further denied St. Paul by his '■

people were numeroa enough there on this :
occasion to make the room look a good deal
smaller than it really is. The entertainment, i
or bop, as it was called consisted of a drill by
% part of the ■ company, and a !
dance afterwards. The drill con- i
sisted of the general manual of j
arms, company movements, loading '
and firing both direct and oblique, kneeling j
and lying down, in single and doable rank \
and fixing and unfixing bayonets. The drill '
was very excellent and is ■ regarded as the
best public exhibition the company has ever
given. Capt Bean has worked long and
faithfully to bring the company up to the
excellent standard .it has attained to and it
was with pardonable pride that he presented
the work of •hu company • last night: Toe
different movement* were all applauded, es
pecially the lying down and firing. After
the drill was concluded the dancers took I
possession of the hall and ; the remainder of j
the sight was given up to dancing;

A Small Blaze.
About 3:25 yesterday morning a fire broke
out in the Wilmett House, on Mulberry
street near Main, and in a locality where
there is nothing but frame buildings. Tbe
alarm being given, the fire department was
quickly on the grounds, and went to work
with a will, having three streams playing. It
took them a considerable time before they
could throw the water directly on tbe fire,
owing to the dense smoke and the fact
that the fire wan principally in the attic.
The fire started through a drunken boarder
who went to bed without blowing tbe candle
out, and leaving it in such a position on a
corner bracket that it put the woodwork on
fire, burning into the room where Wilmett's
brother was sleeping, who, on raising the
alarm, picked up his trunk and clothes,
threw them through the window, jumping
after them himself. It was well the flre
was got under control as the locality had plenty
of material for a large flre. The night was
calm, and the firemen worked to the very
best advantage. The building is owned by
Thomas Licky, who puts his loss at about
$200. the loss being chiefly from water.
Alfred Wilmett, who occupied it as a board
ing-house, loss something over $300, and
everything they have is soaking wet. There
is no insurance. This is the first time in
two mouths that the flre department has
been called out, and the drills they have
had showed, in that they made much bet
ter time in reaching the fire, as well as a
better handling of the fire when there.
Champion Wrostllna Match.
On Wednesday a very imp)rtant event
came off at the Sawyer house, do less than a
wrestling match for the championship of the
state, the participants being John Russell, a
noted waterman, who has claimed the
championship, and Judd Off, the ■ popular
livery stable man. Russell issued a challenge
to Orff, who was averse to the contest, as his
opponent was a lively, muscular man, light
of foot, who could dance a jig on a table or
roll a single log across the lake without get
ting his feet wet. At last, however, he con
sented to the trial of skill and a rins was
formed. It was decided to have the match
strictly in accordance with the Marquis of
Quiensbury rules, collar and elbow hold, best
two in three.
In the first round the men clenched in
good order, Rus.sell having the advantage in
activity while Orff had it in solidity and firm
ness. At the word "go" the work began in
earnest. They tug, they strain, but as well
try to tear the trees up by their roots or the
granite from the rocks as to move Judd Orff
from his pin 3. Not 6o hi 3 lighter opponent,
who jumps around quite lively but still comes
down like a cat — feet well under. However,
at last Orff gives a sudden jerk, and Russell
where are you? Why, on your back as flat
as possible. First round for Orff. Time 10 I
After a short rest and refreshments, as !
well as going out to see a man, they met j
again, but this time Russell acts very warily,
finding that he has caught a tartar, and he
does not show off as much of his agility.
Orff, however, is a little careless, being some
what elated by his succes, and he lifts his feet
some which gives Russell many chances, j
which for a lons time baffled all his skill. I
Several times Russel was nearly measuring i
his length on the floor, but the center of I
gravity was too strong and he kept his feet.
At last, by a sudden jerk forward, be brought j
Orff on his knees, and as he had been so
seldom on them of late, his surprise was
supreme, and he called that a fair throw, as !
did not wish to get down any farther, on ac- j
count of the difficulty in getting up. This j
was strictly in accordance with the Marquis \
of Queensbury rules. Time, S minutes.
Both contestants were pretty well blown, j
and their heavy breathing told of the hard i
work. After going and smiling, they shook j
hands and prepared for the last and trying i
contest. A look at Orff would show that this
time he was on his muscle. His hair had
risen, and the muscles on his arms stuck out \
like whip cord. His feet were planted in a I
bracing position, as if to say, "Come on
Mac Duff." Russell was equally sanguine
that he could down Orff, and he drew his
belt tighter around him. Orfr had no belt,
as he could not find one large enough. At
last the tuir of war begins. The friends of ;
the two men are excited, and each willing to i
bot his pile on his man. There is some !
sparring fora good hold, then they come to- '
gether like engines. The attempts at trip
ping, the jerking of each other prove futile. !
Tae perspiration rolls off in big '
drops, falling to the floor. However,
mis mattes no aiuerence. me
championship of the state is at stakes.
The former champion wishes to retain it- j
and strains every nerve, while Orff wants to !
get the belt, as the common ones around ]
here are not large enovgh and he wants a '
bran new one with a silver clasp and hiero- I
glyphics on a brass plate. Suddenly Oril j
makes a herculean effort, and a la Sir Wal
• "They tug, they strain, down, down they go, !
.7 mid Orff above, Russell below."
Orff was declared the winner of the great- |
est wrestling match ever seen in this city, i
and one which the audience fully enjoyed. ;
There was no charge for admission. The
contestants were duly sponged by their sec- :
onds and the loser "set 'em up."
After the contest was over Russell wanted \
to find some one he could throw, when he i
and John Sutton, a jolly boy, repaired to the
street, where they had a side hold contest,
Russell proving the victor. Everything was
done according to Marquis of Queensbury
rules. It Is rumored that there will be a
contest for the belt at an early day, or as
soon as the belt id made, as the old belt is of
no U3« to the present holder.
The election of an alderman In the Second
ward, to fill the vacancy caused by the resig
nation of Aid. Townshend, took place yes
terday. The were four candidates . in the
field: Dr. Merry, the regular candidate of
the Republicans; Jas. S. O'Brien, of the
Democrats; Chas. Burns Independent! all
high license men, and Win. Strannaly, on
the low license ticket. Dr. Merry had bis
name withdrawn during the forenoon, and
J. O'Brien did not appear on the field until
the afternoon, thinking the fight was between
himself and Dr. Merry. Shurmaly led at
first, but Burns' ■friends rallied and during
the afternoon hU stock went up rapidly.
The very best of good feeling prevailed, the
candidates themselves not caring which way
the vote went. At 5 o'clock the poll closed,
when It was found that Chas. J. Burns, coal
and wood dealer, and who lives in the west
part of the ward, where they never have had
a representative, was elected by a handsome
majority. 369 votes were polled, of which
the high license men obtained 207, and the
low license candidate 102 votes. Mr. Burns
will make an excellent alderman, as be is a
shrewd business man, and one that will do
exactly as he says. The following was the
state of the poll at the close:
Chas. J. Barns 170
Wm. Shannaly 102
Jas. B. O'Brien 73
Dr. Merry 21
Mr. Burns -was duly' received as an alder
man at the meeting of the council last even
ing, taking the oath of office. Our city coun
cil is again complete, and no doubt they will
give the clflzens evidence that they are
working for tlieir Interests.

Ha-tixgs, Sept. 25. The public schools
are again in session to the inexpressible re
lief of many a tired mother, after a very long
vacation. 'The attendance this week Is just
five hundred, a very slight falling off in some
of the higher grades, due to the fact that
many large boys remain at work on farms in
the vicinity while fine weather lasts.
The fair just closed has been a financial
success, every dollar of premiums to the
amount of $1,747 and all expenses have
been paid, leaving a small balance of be
tween two and three hundred dollars.
During the five successive year 3in which
this association have held fairs they have
paid every dollar of their premiums, paid for

her to become the invalid she was. Mr.
Cowlcs had the bishop and the editor of the

could not be taken and the cases continued
from time to time. To-day the bishop pub
