all these. Like troublesome insects

I'ott aaj JJail gives particnlara of an in
cident which recently hnpponed in Kan
tat. and to which tb* people of that
Slate make casual allusion. A man liv
ing iu Ihs neighborhood of Parsons was
auspected of horse-stealiug, the moat
flagrant offense known to a Kauaaa
commouiiy. Filled with righteous in
dignation at tbia affront to the sacred
causa of joatice, a select company of cit
izens sought hi* r**id«nce, called out
the supposed thief, and, in the course
of conversation, gently lifted him np
toward the limb of a convenient Im, by
mean* of a rope, gav* him an am pi*
supply of ammunition by th* judicious
distribution of two dozen bullets in dif
ferent parts of his clothing, and retired
to thrir virtu"U* onnehea. This would
not hav* I-ecu worthy of mention but
for a discovery which was accidentally
mail* th* n*xt day. The jury which
compUtad thi* job so elegantly nre
slightly vexed at the thought that their
night's labor waa in vain, for the horse
thief is still alive, Ilut the man who
lived next door to Kim will never 1h> holi

It appears that our worthy frioud ami

It eeem* that the Mormon difficulties
are to be renewed in th« next Congress.
Cannon. the polygamoua Delegate from
Utah, haa b«n rs-slected in the (ace o(
the lav which provides that no polyga
mut shall take hia aeat in Congress.
Thia fault, tars a Washington diapatch,
can be clearly laid at the door* of the
House Committee on Elections, of
which Congressman Smith of New York
la Chairman. It ia believed that had
the committee adopted the Haxleton res
olution, providing for Cannon's expul
sion, the House of Bspreasntativea, in
fluenced bjr public opinion, would havs
paaasd it. The vote in the committee
was evenly divided on the subject, or
rather, the committee refused to rejwrt
a resolution providing for Mr. Cannon's
•xpulaioa. and aleo refuted to adopt one
aakiug to be discharged from the further
cjuaideration of hi* ca»e. It was doubt
less the intentiou to intimidate Mor
mons through the bill reorganizing their
courts, and members of the House pre
sumed that, inaamuch as they liatl thus
far reprimanded the Mormons, that they
would not again attempt to aend to Con
gress a declared and actual polygamist.
It waa suggested thst if Mr. Csnnon
was allowed to retain hii seat until the
expiration of hia term of service, the
next delegate from L'tah would at all
events be neutral. The result is just
the reverse. Cannon haa been returned,
and the solution of thia Mormon prol>
lcm will again vex the members of the
present Congress, who thought they had
disposed of it aaliafactorily.

How a Kidnapper waa Detected.
Abont forty years ago, a kidnapping

hat he did not posaess £K,(KN), and the

lad rich frienda, and muni raiae tho

liattgured for life. So great waa the ex
ritement that a fund waa started to aid
ihf man. Oue gruUeuian, however. en
tertained a xiupu ion that it vm not all
right. It ia a wall known fact that the
liauk of Kngland never reisanea ita
notea. Tha gentleman, going to the
I wink, procured Home new notra, audde
kirrd the officiate to take their number
ind to notify him when the notea were
returned, and. if |<o*sible, to aacertain
from whom they were received. A abort
time after theae note* had been given to
the father of the child, the gentleman
had notice from the I wink that the notea
lad come in. Ue found that tha notea
lad been aent in by a bank in the North

of the man who doted on her so art
leealy. Her memory Is embalmed with
ia my heart of hearts. I wanted to em
balm her body, but found I could em
balm her memory cheaper. I procured
of Eli Mudgett, a neighbor of mine, a
very pretty graveetone. Ilia wife was
consumptive, and he kept it on hand
several years in anticipation of her
death, lint she rallied last Spring, and
his hopes were blasted. Never shall I
forget the poor man's grief when I
iwkedhim to pert with it. "Take it,
bl.-lnner," he hoarsely whispered, " and
may you never know what it is to have
your aoul disappointed as mine has
been;" and ha burst into a flood of tears.
His spirit waa, Indeed, utterly broken,
r had the following epitaph engraved
upon tho tombstone: " To the memory
of Tabitha, wife of Moses Skinner,Esq.,
gentlemanly editor of the Trombont.
Terms, three dollars a year, invariably
iu advance. A kiud mother and ei
emplary wife. Office over Coleinau'a
grocery, up two flights of stairs. Knock
hard. We shall miss thee, mother; wo
shall miss thoe. Job printing. Job
printing solicited." Thus, like ltachel
weeping for her children, did my lacer
ated spirit cry out in agony. But one
ray of light [teuetratcd the despair of
my aoul. Tho undertaker took hia pay
in job printing, and the aexton owod me
a littlo account I should not have gotten
any other way. Why ahould wo pine at
the mysterious ways of I'rovidenco and
vicinity (not a conundrum)?
