Lawerence, wife of Dr. J. S. Lawerence, who has been lying at the poiut of death in this city for some weeks past departed this life Thursday evening, at the apartments occupied by the family over the Loom is hardware store on Commercial street. Some weeks ago her condition became so critical that her husband, whose min ing interests in Colorado necesilated his absence from Einpor'.t.,' was sum moned to her bed side, and though every attention and care was lavished by -himself and daughter upon the sufferer, their tender olUces could not avert the terrible blow which has fallen upon them, in the removal of a faithful wife and devoted mother. The deceased was a lady of more than ordinary mental endowments, and after coming to Emporia in 1809, mastered, with the aid of her husband, the science of medicine and -was successful in the practice of her profession until her de clining health obliged her to withdraw from that field of labor. Possessed of highly refined tistes, Mrs. Lawrence de del Igh ted in esthetic employment, aud her home was beautified with much of her graceful handiwork which -will be fondly cherished at souvenirs of the de parted. The subject of this notice was born in .4 . . . Maine, but in her early youth she re moved with her parents to Illinois where she met and married Dr. Law rence, their union being blessed with one daughter. Miss Elina, who was the devoted attendant of her mother duriog the lingering and painful illness which terminated in her death. The funeral took place on Satur day at eleven o'clock from the family apartments on Commercial street and the services were conducted by Rev. J. F. Hendy.of the Presbyterian church. STRl'CK BT LIGHTNING. A Jlara and Horse Harnett on the Farm of 8. L. Sargeant on Wrights Crack. Thursday morning at about 2 o'clock a workman in the employ of S. L. Sar- geant, residing on Wrights creek, about twenty miles northwest of this city awoke to find that a large double frame barn belonging to Mr. S. was in ruins, hav ing been destroyed by fire. During the heavy thunder storm early in the even ing, a very vivid flash of ligbtnfug, and a sharp, quick report, startled the family at supper, and led Mr. Sargeant to be lieve that some object in the Immediate vicinity had been struck. At his sug gestion the hired man went to the barn and after making a careful examination returned and reported everything all right, aud it was not until this morning that Mr. Sargeant's fears were fully con. firmed. His theory is that the lightning struck the barn and ran down the side of the building, igniting a pile of straw and manure, which burned slowly until the fire was communicated to the dryer contents of the barn, when it gain. ed full headway. The loss comprises the building val ued at $ 230, and a pony worth $40. There were three other horses in the sta ble, all of which made their escape. Mr. Sargeant, fortunately, is well-to-do, aud will immediately proceed to rebuild. ClltYKU WITH A KAZOlt. Sertoli Cutting AiTray Hot ween a Nero and White Man. List week Dr. J. W. Filkins was summon h1 to the country to dress the wounds of an employe of P. Cowling, who lives about six miles east of the city. Upon arriving at the place the Doctor found that the man had beeu severely cut about the face end head by a razor in the hands of a colored man with whom he had been engaged in a fight. There were several ugly cuts across his face, one of his ears had been nearly sev ered from his head, and a gash on his neck not far from the jugular vein showed what a narrow escape the wounded man had made. The doctor stayed with him until two o'clock this morning and left him in as comfortable shape as could have been expected. The negro disap peared shortly after the cutting and had not been found when our informant left the place. We were not able to learn the names of either of the parties cn gaged in the row. Home Agalu. Eph. Q. Patterson delighted aud sur prised his family'nnd friends by drop. ping down upon them last week, af ter an absence from Emporia of seven years. He has been following for some years the track of the Santa Fe road operating for the company, and ha9 seen a great deal of the far west, having ex plorcd New Mexico, Arizonia and other of the territories. Mr. Patterson was, we believe, the first policeman Emporia ever had, and it must be interesting for him to contemplate the changes that have taken place in this city since he first kuew it, and to compare the city as it now stands with the town he left seven years ago. Mr. P's. friends are all delighted to sec him, and wc should be pleased t learn that he has con eluded to cease roaming and settle down in the best town in Kansas. Settled. The case of Kansas vs. Charles John son, Wm. Hubert, ln.

County Attorney Sedg. wicb appeared for the Stttc aud Buck fc Feighan represented the defcudunts. Over thirty witnesses were subpieuaed and a good portion of Pike township was present. A jury was summoned, but as a settlement was effected between the counsel by the terms of which the case was dismissed at the costs of the do fendants,imounting to f 19, the jury was not impaneled. Kail Ntni. A telegram was received from Wichita ast Thursday announcing the death of little Paul, son of R. P. Mnrdot-k, of the Wichita Eagl. Mr. Murdock was long a resident of this city, and has many friends here aud in the vicinity who will be grieved to learn of bis sad bereavement. Little Paul was a bright and promising child aged about two years, ins death will tall with heavy force upon the devoted parents, and both relatives and friends will extend that deep sympathy which such strokes of sorrow produce among kindred and friends. "Noble souls in nature are allied," and all we can do in such an hour is to offer the heart sympathizing language.

Forde, City Clerk TIIO.-E JACKSOX TOWNSHIP BONDS. A Tax-Payer Criticises the Action of the County CoinmlsHionera . Editors Sews: On Saturday last the board of couuty commissioners were hastily called together, and when they met, acted on a matter of the most vital iiupcrtauce to the voters of Jackson township without due deliberation. It nppeors that for several days prior to the said meeting of the board, parties in the interest of Neosho Rapids had been soliciting mimes to a petition requesting the board to submit a second proposi tion to vote bonds of that township to the extent of $2o,000 lor the benefit of the Kansas City & Emporia railroad, and among the most active in soliciting these names was the member of the board from the Rapids. On Saturday morning, of the day the commissioners met, it seems that this same interested member from the Rap ids rode all the way to the residence of Commissioner Holmes to solicit his im mediate attendance. It so happened that several citizens of Jackson ( nnl among them Mr. D. A. Hunter) were in the city on other business Unit diy, nnd by accident got wind of what was going on, and in behalf of themselves and oth ers of the township opposed to this bond grab, requested Mr. AV. T. JlcCarty to be present on their behalf and do what ho could to protect their iuteicst. Tue board, in the absence of the coun ty attorney, requested Judge Kellogg to advise them iu the premises. The rail road had au urdent advocate in Judge Peyton. The board was called to order, the president stating that the meeting was a special one to consider this matter only. The petition was then presented, calling an election to vote ou tlii3 bond propo sition. The law provides thnt when petition of this kind is for the first time presented, it must be signed by two- fifths of the resident tax-payers. (bounty Uici K .wing, swore that the pe tition contained two--fifth3 of the tax payers of the township, but he did not know that they were ail resident lax-pay era. Mr. Jones, commissioner for the Kapids, swore that the petition contain ed names of Iwo-fiftbs of the resident tax payers, to the bkst of his kxowl edgk. On cross- examination, he swore that he knew tome to be resident tax- payers and he knew some on the list to be non-resident tax payers, he could not say how many were resident nor how many were non-resident tax-payers. Mr. McCarty in and opposing the calling- of an election on the p3tition,ma le the fol lowing points: 1. That there was not sufficient legal evidence before tho board that two fifths of the actual resident tax-payers ot Jack son had signed this coll. 2. That in the submission of a teeorul proposition of this nature in tho same township, the n ames of a majority of the legal voters shall sign the petition and not two-fifths only, and cited the latter part of section G3, page 703 of the gener al statutes which reads: "That at any subsequent election to be held for the same purpise the same shall not be held unless upon a petition of a majority of the Icy.il voters of such county .township or city.' .. .... . 3. There being now $25,000.00 on the township for tho tame purpose it would bo illegal to vote that additional sum before, these outstanding bonds were arl- ually aiHCtlUil. .. . .-. ; , ... 4. Tu:it the cornmistsioners should . un matter of fairness, zivii thosj opposi-d to the bonds on opportunity lo b heard befork the expense cf an election should be incurred, in view of the fact that it was represented to the board, that n timber of those who were on the ; pe tition had sigucd under misapprehen sion of theficL aqd would wtthdravu their names as food as the proper ppcr could be drawn and presented to thetu. Four name to a paper were presented by Mr. Hunter, askiojj the board to withdraw their signatures. These names were gotten by Mr. U. from par- ties of his township that were in the city a few moments before the board met. Notwithstanding all these serious questions, the board of county commis si oners of Lyon county then and there ordered this election and would not de fer action even for one day, find thiB in the face of the opinion of the acting county attorney, who advised them that there was a grave leeal doubt in his mind as to whether the petition should contain two fifths or a maioritv of the tax payers and in the face of the addi tional statement of the acting county attorney that it was within the hai province of the board to defer action for short time if it chose so to do, and that before final action, if enough names should be withdrawn to make the cum ber less than the legal requirement, it would be the board's duty not to call the election. No harm to the interest of any one could have been done by de ferring action on the petition for a few days. As it is, the township is stuck to the tune of many dollars for the elec tion alone, and if the bonds should be carried a tedious and expensive lawsuit Will test their validitv. It was not to the interest of the county that this haste should have been manilested, and the board cannot call special meetings except in the interest of tbe county. The regular meeting of me uoaru, just eigut days irom this special meeting, might have saved all this expense aud future trouble for Jackson township. Tax-Payek. Goings and Gatherings. . Any sort of work is a treadmill affair. We perform one round just in lime to begin another. So whatever our work muy be, we are going round and round over Ihe same ground. The printer, for instance, gets out one paper just in time to begin the work of setting up anotlier. So with the writer. He is going round all the time. How can any one go oth erwise in this round world? Our last round took us over Coffey, Woodson, Allen and Anderson counties. We found the farmers hopefully plow. ing and planting everywhere. A wide acreage of corn is already planted. Early planting seems to be the rule this season. The farmers of Woodson, Al leu and Anderson are sowing some oats. The fear of chinch bugs prevents many from sowing oats at all. What wheat there is looks promising, but the chinch bug is abroad in the land, and may turn the beautiful green into sickly yellow The peaches and cherries are not all killed. Apple orchards now promise au abundant crop. The towns are improving, some of tucm largely, tola is enjoying unpre. ccdented growth. The new railroad is waking up everybody r.nd everything around there. The business of the town has stiuck a boom.

I was one day reading the advertisement of Kendall's Spav in Cure in tbe Chicago Express. 1 determin ed at once to try it and got our druggists here to send for it; tlity orderud three bottles; t took them all and thought I would give it a thorough trial ; 1 used it according to direc tions aod the fourth day the colt ceased lo be lame and tbe lumps bave disappeared. I used nut one bottio and the coil's limbs are as free from lumps and as smooth as any horse in the state. He is entirely cured. The cure w".? ""arkable that I let two of my neighbors have tbe remaining two bottles, who are now using it. . Very respectfully. L. T. Fostsk. Read Proof of Wonderful Cures. a . v r""T. lo. Jan. M.18H1. Ir. B. J.
