A Marrow Keeapo. On Monday, about 11 o'clock during a heavy rain and thunder storm the house of T. E. Gilbert on One Hundred and Forty.Two creek, about twenty miles northeast of Emporia, was struck by lightning. The fluid ran down the brick flue, knocking Mrs. Gilbert from her chair onto the floor, while Miss Matlie Kirkpatrick, her sister, who was standing near, was thrown violently to the floor. The plastering was torn off and other slight damage done. We are glad to learn that the injury to the la dies was trifling, and that both were all right next morning.

Presentation or An Elegant Altar Cloth to Emporia Division No. 1 1 Order nt Railway Conductors. A pleasant surprise arranged for the members ot Emporia division No. 11, of the Order of Railway Conductors, waa hugely enjoyed by them at the resi dence of Wm. Peck, Esq., chief con ductor of the division, at hia residence on State street last evening. It appears that the wives of the con ductors who compose division No. 11, of the order of railway conductors on the A- T. & 8. F- road "presented the di vision, a short time ago a beautiful Bible to be used in their lodge room upon the altar, and the ladies not wish ing to stop there, concluded that they would complete the gifl by adding a beautiful altar cloth'. Accordingly the conductors were all invited to a sociable and supper at the residence of their chief, Mr. Peck, on State street, Tues day evening, July 25th, 1883. All the conductors who could be spared from their trains were present, besidesTrain Master Gardner, Train Dis patcher J. M. Nichols and wife, T. C McMurlrie and wife, Mrs. Kcndrick, pianist, and the Amphion Qniuteltcclub, as invited guests. i All was kept a profound secret on the part of the ladies. About 9:30 p.m., after instrumental solos by Mrs. Ken- drick, vocal solos by D. D. lienm-lt aud several quartettes sang by tire Auipb ion Quintette club, comp8ed ol ' Messrs. C. D. Holmes, II. H. I ones, D. I. Bennett snd Chas. Fletcher, the com pany were invited inside to partake of an elegant supper prepareu by , lue ladies. Home delay was caused by an unusual proceeding in which Dispatcher Nichols Was called to one side and a committee of ladies very mysteriously delegated lo him the pleasant duty of making the presentation speech. At once there was brought into full view from its hiding places magnificent altar cloth, laid upon a stand, upon which rested a beautiful Bible.' sur- mouutcd by a wide silk book mark on hich was painted in gold lettering, "Presented to division No. 11. Order of Railway Conductors by the ladies." ' The cloth is of cirdiuil silk velvet with heavy silver fringe at. the end, and a heavy silver tassel at each corner. Mr. Nichols stepped forward - and in a few eloquent words . presented the beautiful gift on behalf of the ladies to the wondering recipients, who were taken completely by surprise. At Ibe close of the remarks of Mr.' Nichols Mr. D. D. Bennett stepped forward and said : "Ladiss: Our gratitude is agiin called forlh by this second kind mani festation of your interest and love io us and our beloved order. Language fails to express to you our high appreciation of iu We all ot ns realize the value of God's holy word 'It contains and holds out to us the green light of cau tion, the red light of danger, and the truth's white light, which shows us the clear, main track of duty, .wherein. assisted by your love and esteem, we all will endeavor to walk. Ladies, on be half of Division No. 11 of the Order of Railway' Conductors we ' accept this beautiful offering and shall always hold it in sacred and high esteem not only as the handiwork of those we love, but also as the outward adornment of our Bible, even as you are the adornments of our homes,' . , ' On behalf of the ladies Mrs, Con ductor Peck thanked the members of Division No, 11 for their kind words expressed , by their speaker and assured the brotherhood of the determination bi the ladies to continue their interest in the welfare of their organization. - - Whereupon, the whole party sal down In great glee to the bountiful repast which consi-ited in the main of delicious cakes, creams, nuts, candies, peaches. berries, lemonade, etc After retiring from the table music and social chat indulged in until a late hour.

Aa Interesting History of How the Church Started, by a Former Pastor 8w,uim3l-fc the Neosho to Heat Cp tho Members or the Flock. We have been shown a private letter from J. C. Fraker, now running a saw mill in the pine woods f)f Atkansas, near Eureka Springs, to acitizen of Em poria, and have obtained leave to print copious extracts freia it, as they will be of interest to all the old tetUers and many new ones. The letter vividly re calls the early struggles here in church as well as secular matters, and mentions the good works of several people who have gone ta their long reward. Mr. Fraker came here as a circuit rider in 1S59, and after preaching here and iu surrounding circuits, settled here and was county treasurer four years and was prominently engaged in business iu Eur pons. Having acpl a hardware store in connection with Judge Peyton. In the ups and downs of life which have fallen to his fate his mind turns with fond memories to his life and work here, and he pictures them in lifelike colors. Speaking of the old church here he says: I love the Methodist church iu Em poria the more, perhaps, because to her was given some or the best years of mv life years full of labor, care aud sacri fice. It covered a period of drouth, of grasshoppers, or war, or Uuantrei! raids ana or Indian scares a day or darkness ana iuick ciouus. Juy nrst visit to i-ui poria was made twenty-three years ago last spring It was a time of irreat rain and Hood. I left the eastern part ot the then territory anu traveled on horse back, crossiui; swollen streams bv swim miog the:n, nil I arrived at Forest Hill, then a city in prospect. I hunted the few Methodists 1 could fiud and left an appointment tor the following Sabbath. Ibe Aeosuo river was bank lull and running over. I followed up ou the north side and crossed the old townsite of Fremont, then an ambitious rival of Emporia for the county-seat, till I got to Thomas Shocklcy's, on Allen creek. Brother buockley was a pioneer Mtth odist of Kansas, and his house was a preaching place" as well as a home for the preacher. As we could not reach Emporia that day we were entreated to stop over night, and brother . invited his neighbors to come to his house that evening for religious services, where we had un opportunity to talk to them of the belter way and life r ue next morning we monniea our faithful horse and started for Emporia, as we supposed that, by that time, we ought be able to cross the river, for it had ceased raining. We got to the stream early in the day at what was then known as the "Hicks ford," north from Emporia. The river was full, but was tailing last. 1 stopped all day on its banks without anything to eat, hoping that by night I could cross over to Em poria without swimming. Many limes durlug the day 1 went to measure the bank to the water to sec how last H was falling. By sundown it had fallen six feet, but then as the water covered the entire channel ot the stream from bank to bank I thought there must be still from twelve to fifteen feet of water, which was running rapidly, and to me it seemed angry and threatening. As 1 had been so greatly hindered by rain and high water my lime to return home was drawing very near, and if 1 visited Emporia my work I must cross the river that night. 1 wm in this mailer like Paul "iu a strait between two." What to do, was a matter of great doubt as well as anxiety. On the one hand the rapid stream seemed so threatening; on the other the idea of returning home without even visiting my work when I waa near, after havinir traveled so far. I could not think of. I could not swim but depended on my horse to take mc over, it would soon be dark. What 1 did must be done at once. A glance al the dark waters would cause a shudder to come over me as I thought of the pos sible contingency of horse and rider sinking beneath the dark waters and no one lelt to uear any tiaings loan anxious. loving wile, expecliug soon to bo clait. dencd by my return. My success in swimming the smaller stieams on thu way gave mc courage, and feeling a binh, holy purpose to zealously prose cute the work which the church, under God, gave me to do, and the glorious re ward of the faithful workers on the'eter- tml shore beyond the dark waters so filled my earnest nature that I deter mined notlo let so insignificant a stream as the Neosho lay between me and my work. Coinumiicg myscii ana my wile, in a distant part of the territory, to His care in whose work I was engaged, I began to adjust my things for crossing over. 1 put my gum coat on my saddle. beneath me so as not to have it to en cumber me if I got off my horse in the j water. A large carpet-sack containing Bible and hymnbook, and some wearing apparel, I hardly knew what lo do with. I first thought I would fasteu it lo my neck, and then it occurred to me that it might prove to be, in the water, a "mill stone about my neck," of which we read in the Bible. Finally I disposed of it by clenching the bandies of it in my teeth, so as to give me the usu of bo,h hands to cuide my horse, so arranged I urged my horse, very much against his will, into the river. No sooner in than we were carried rapidly down stream by the swift current till we land ed against some young sycamores that had grown upon a bar in the river. My horse struggled a long lime (or wnai soemea to me long) to aisentangie Him self from them. After ridding himself of the sycamores he swam for the shore but was carried downward by the current till he landed against the bank some dis tance below the road, hanging to the bank by his fore feet to rest. I sprang from the saddle to tho bank with the halter rein and placed my heels well in the ground for a strong pull so soon as my horse got sufficiently rested to make an effort. The final effort was made, and horse and rider were safely on the Emporia side of tho river, minus the gum coat, which waa carried off some where in crossing, tne writer being loo much engaged iu greater concerns to notice such small mailer?. I mounted my horse and started for town ; but be ing a stranger, and not hav- intr the name ot a single member or the church residing there, and but f 1.25 in money, 1 concluded to turn my course southwest on the Cottonwood in the Lockerman neighborhood, lo where a brother Hadlcy lived, who was reported as steward, for it was then getting dark and I could pot take the risk and suffer the mortification of not having money enough to pay my hotel bill. It is true I had ibe name of a man by the name of Cox, a blacksmith, who was reported to me as a "friend" to the church, and whom I afterward found to be so, whose wife was un earnest, faithful member of the church." He-was a devoted member of the Democratic party, but a good brother-in-law of the church as well. Long after dark and such darkness as it wast it could be fc-lt as well as seen I groped my way from place lo place in search of a Methodist family lo stop with. Wet and hungry, I came to the house of a man by the name of Udell. Here I learned that Ihe Methodist stew, ard bad gone to Kansas City. I stopped with friend Odd), whose good wife got up (for she had gone to bed) and got me some supper. . I louud him to be a very intelligent North Carol ician aud a great talker. Some time afterwards be was converted and joined the church. He died some fifteen years since, and I hope and believe ho is in the land of the iui mortal. ' The next day I reached Emporia and found four members ol the church three women, two of whom were widow, and one man, an old bachelor. These Methodists seemed S3 glad to see me as though I had been an old friend re turned to them after many years of ab sence. " Even my good Democratic brother-in-law, friend Cox, united with his good wife to make my stay at their house as pleasant as possible. This was my first year in the conference at Em poria. With this small beginning we laid the foundation of the old atone church ; and as everybody was poor in those days and had nothing to give, it was a large undertaking for that day. Some said it would never be finished. Others said that if it should be finished there would never be oeoole enouch in Emporia to fill it. boon after the foun dation was laid the terrible drouth of 1800 followed and nearly depopulated town and county for a time. This was followed by ihe war and hard times, but in those dark hours Uod sent us some heroic men and women. Among the heroic faithful band I now recall brother and sister Gillett from the west ern reserve the new Englaad of Ohio. These were laiihful, devoted mem bers of the church in the dark days. - But these with Father and Mother Bryant and Father Weaver with other faithful ones have long since entered the ' "church triumphant." Father Weaver's remains rest on the old hometead, just east of the city. All honor to these) faithful workers! A numerous family of sons and daughters are livinr In and around Emporia are growing wealthy and are leading citi- sena. . ; r - Emporia has outgrown the expects- lions of the false propnets, who said there would never be eople enough to fill the church, until it is now too small, and I have been-ex pectin rr for some time to hear that it has been superceded bv a new church more io keeping with the spirit of improvement, enterprise and resource of the present city. But still to mc tho- old church is eacred ground a hallowed spot, and calls to 1 mind a heroic band of pioneer Metho dists who, having left churches and fond associations in their eastern homes, struggled lo build in the wilder ness a religious home for them.v tves. their children, their new-made friends and associations, against so much of hardships, disappointments and dis couragements. Yes, that is sacred ground. Consecrated by the tears, the cares, the prayers and the earnest toil of a noble band of workers, who had large iniiii in ine luiure not nmy oi cmporia, but of Kansas. On the ground parched oy the most terrible drouth ivansas ever had within the memory of man. the foundation walls were laid: sur rounded by that" blighting plague of eariy Kansas the grasshoppers so numerous ana so cense were they, that what John Wesley said of the devils would apply to them equally as well "They (grasshopper) throng the air, darken Desven. And rule this lower world." The walls were erected by the con tinued effort of men and women who were too strong in faith to make a fail ure. In the midst of the most terrible war, in the darkest hours of the nation's life was this church finished anddedi cated. Do not think me beside myself. when I repeat that . it is consecrated ground. Nearly all these workers have gone, but strangers have taken their places and if Brother Hanna should leel the enthusiasm that comes over me from the pleasant memories of nearly a Quarter of a century a no. have no doubt that many earnest, burn ing words of faithfulness, would ' be heard by the church of the present. PARKS. PLEASURE GROUNDS AMD LAWN ADORNMENTS. Addreaa of Major Buu at the Horti cultural Picnic Held at the Resi dence of Mali ion Stubbs At the request of a number of our readers we publish the following excel lent address delivered by Major Ragan, of Independence, Missouri, at the horti cultural picnic held at the residence of Mahlon Stubbs last week : Lodie and Gentlemen and friends of the jyun. vounty . Horticultural Society, ana jur. trrexiacm: In compliance with the kind invita tion of your society, I have consented to furnish a paper on the subject of "rarks, I'leasure li rounds and lawn Adornments." Although I have given this subject some tnougut, l nave some tears wheih er what I have written will meet the wants and expectations of your society. This is a subject that is engaging some oi me oesi taient oi our country, ana year by year an increased interest ia taken by the most enlightened of every community. it we trace ancient history, both sacred and profane, to the creation ot man, we nnd that our Creator placed the primal pair in a garden. We reasonably con clude that tho Garden of Eden was not merely a cabbage patch. Yet some per sons may claim that a cabbage is the prettiest flower they have ever seen; still we think that in connection with templing fruits there were prettier and more fragrant flowers than the cabbage in that garden. It has been aptly said that horticulture is the flower of seri culture. Thus it may be claimed that landscape gardening is the crowninc embellishment of both. It is health-in vigorating, inspiring the higher and no. bier sensibilities of mankind. The first settlement of any country re quires the best energies and economy of lis iniiarjitants to tell the lorests and break the prairies to provide tho neces saries of life. Yet, when the country is under successful cultivation railroads are required to transport the surplus and towns and oitit-s spring up. Hence. our leisure time and capital can be profit ably employed in improving our homes, parks, uouie varus, landscape garaemug, etc. That town or city that fails to provide for public recreation to meet the sanita ry needs and pleasure of its inhabitants and visitors will fall short ot the expec tations and wants of the intelligent of the present day. j We should, by all means, endeavor to cultivate a taste for rural improvements; wniie, wun tue growing wealln ot our country, beautiful cottages aud villas are being erected on every band we should nut neglect to devote a part of our means and talent to our lawns. parks and drives. As we would employ an architect to plan and erect our mansions, so, also, professional talent will be required to lav out and plant trees and plants best adapted to the grounds in question. By failing to employ competent persons and blundering without practical experience much money and time are often useless ly wasted, and that which should be a "thing of beauty" and enjoy our highest admiration, becomes a subject of criti cism. While wo emulate older slates snd countries that in the course ol centuries have grown populous and wealthy and can allord the many tacinatiug enjoy ments connected with our subject, the vim of our western people will not be content to wait Xor ages, and leaye fu ture generations to the enjoyment of these avantages. .Landscape gardening, miters irom gardening in embracing the whole scene immediately about a country house, which it softens and refines or renders more spirited and striking by the aid of art. At one time it was thought best to imitate as far as. possible nature, but more recently we claim to improve on nature, by artistic arrangement and com binations, by grouping and blending colors from the darkest and richest, to the lightest, producing brilliancy and even gorgeousness that can bo obtained only by artistic arrangements of our im proved trees. Mowers and shrubs, in my travels over most of the stales of the Union. I have made it a point to visit as many of the parks and public and private ornamental grounds as time would permit. If time and space would permit I might make special mention of the parks ol Savannah, Washington City, New York Citv, Bos ton, tit. Louis, etc. Washington City is said to be the model tree city in the world. The most noted among its attractions are the grounds arounu tne tsmitusonian Institute and the public grounds. These grounds, were laid out and plant ed by the late A. J. Downing author of j-tanascape uaraening," ana perhaps are the best samples we have. The selec tion of trees was aludicious one after a long life in tree culture and practical ex perience. The after care was entrusted to that distinguished horticultural ist Mr. Wm. Saunders.. Beautiful trees, plants, and flowers and fruits elicit our admiration, and even excite our surprise and wonder by their magnificence ana granauer but these sensations are transient com oared with those awakened by the sightof a smooth son, yelvety lawn In its fresh brightfver- dure. Yet when we add to this clumps and fringes of trees and flowers, tasteful ly arranged to produce a happy effect, we nave tne crowning picture oi oeauty. And it is by eliciting, preserving, or heightening this expression that we may give our landscape the highest charm. . ' Cenlral Park, in New York City, is the most important work of the kind that has been undertaken in America. This project was urged by the "Horti culturist," the leading work on horticul ture of that day. The first plot of ground (790 acres) was secured in the year 1837, but has been added to from time to time uu it now contains z,7ov acres. It is two and a half miles long and over half a mile wide, and during the favorable part of the year, employs 2,000 men. I spent one day last fall very pleasantly there, viewing its lawns, shrubbery, trees, reservoirs, bridges, ab bohettjm, water terraces, promenades. caves, plateaus, drives, bridle and foot paths; to pass under tbe drives, through tunnels, and to view its lakes decked with b. sntifal sea fowls, its zoologies garden, etc., etc, was a rare treat. I trust you will excuse me for not at tempting a description at this time. Allow me to allude briefly lo one more only, in the way of public parks, to-wit, Boston Common, which has much con nected with it that is historic It was under the spreading branches of the old memorable elm tree, that such men as Hancock and the Adamses in their elo quence aroused a spirit of patriotism that prompted the leaders of the revolu tion to make a teapot of Boston Harbor and to go to prison before they would be compelled to enforce the stamp act and other obnoxious laws calculated to oppress the people. That oid elm has been blown down and gone the wsy of all the eartn, trat a eion baa sprung cp from one of its roots, and receives si most sacred care, being protected by a strong iron fence. ' : Boston commons have had a modern addition ot the public gardens, which are in better taste and keeping than any other public grounds in the world. The commons ia one vast lawn perfectly att with blue grass which is kept closely snorn ana wnen necessary Kept watered to give uniform verdure, with gravel. sand ana aspnalt walks winch are c& lv thronged with people promenading and reclining in rustic tests enjoying the shade cf those ancient sci niajestie elms aad lindens or sporting ou aud around the crystal lakes ' " - Mr. President, it may be asked why I have not dwelt on such adornments as come within tho means of this locality. 1 can say this much, that I am here to answer any questions as to home adorn menu upon a limited way ami could give as a basis some cf the leading shade trees that are best calculated for . shades and which are wortiiy oi a trial. - In my opinion we want hardy, thrifty trees that are withy and hardy on our prairies where tne wine nes iuii sway. Among those i prefer are elms, rocs maple, linden, white ash, catalpa, horse chestnut, " honey locust, ooffeenut, and we may add some of our nut-producing trees wh- n do not 2.;nerauy Dear trans planting .veil, but grow readily from seed, such as hickory, pecan, walnut. oak and chestnut, x To these may be add ed such other shade and ornamental trees as may succeed in the immediate locality. Amomr the most desirable evergreens that are hardy and I presume will be best adapted to this immediate locality I would name the Norway spruce fir, . balsam or silver nr.- wnite pine, hemlock. Austrian and Scotch firs. To these may be added savin, a dwarf specie of cedar, perfectly hardy, dark green and which never browns or fades in winter: also red cedar, a native of this vicinity, which must succeed under any ordinary treatment. There are other ornamental trees that may be suc cessfully grown here by . nursing, by growing some omer tree or plants to shade them till they are well established, when the ahades can be cnt away. I now come to the adornment of homes, which is probably of more gen eral interest than any other part of this subject and cannot be successiuiiy treat ed upon in an article or this kma con nected with the other reading.- Yet I must caution all new beginners in mak ing a lawn not to plant too many trees and to avoid anything like straight rows. If you have not the aid of a land. scape gardener or any such work as "Downine'a Landscape Gardening" or "Weidermann on Beautifying Country Homes" to consult, allow me: to say that instead of straight rows and walks the later style is gentle curves wun trees arraneea in clumps and frinses on the borders of the grounds surrounding open 8 paces to show the lawn to the best advantage. Flowers, too,; should not be regularly distributed throughout the grounds, but in compactly arranged beds which take up less ground and are more easily cared tor and protected and show off our . grounds to better adyan- tage. c ta. kaoait. independence, alo July 20, 1882.
