Presentation.
On Monday evening Mr. ,Chas. L.
Kimball, architect and builder of tho

recipient of an elegant gold watch,
valued at $125, and a gold chain
worth $40, from Rev. F. N. Barlow
proprietor of tho mill, and tho em
ployes under tho instructions of Mr.
Kimball in tho erection and comple
tion of this magnificent structure.
Tho presentation took pl.aca at the
ico cream restaurant of Fred. Good
rich in the following manner :
At about 8 o'clock Mr. Barlow,
Mr. Kimball, and the employes, to
gether with a few who had been invi
ted, repaired to the restaurant for tho
purposo of taking a dish of ice cream
at tho expenso of Mr. Kimball, when
the Band put iu an appearance, and
furnished musio for the occasion.
Then camo tho cream, which Mrs.
Goodrich alone knows how to make.
Then followed tho presentation,
with a few very appropriate remarks
by Rev. F. N. Barlow, in which he
stated that under Mr, Kimball's
chargo thero had never been ono com
plaint from tho men, that his face
was always pleasant and smiling, his
words cheering, and that no ono of them
had ever received a single' cross word
from him in auy manner. Tho mill
had been built to tho entire satisfac
tion of tho proprietor, and in short;
there was no room for complaint from
any quarter. That in their apprecia
tion of his gentlemanly deportment
toward all, and tho faithfulness with
which he had managed tho wholo af
fair, they had considered him worthy
of some token of regard from them,
and therefore tho present.
Mr. Kimball was somewhat sur
prised, as ho had known nothing of
what was to como until Mr. Barlow
stepped forward with tho gift. How
ever, ho answered tho remarks of tho
revcrcnod gentleman in a brief but
appropriate manner, thanking them
very kindly for their friendship and
present, and hoped they would never
have cause to regret of presenting the
token. .
Some remarks were made by sev
eral others present, among them Hon.
S. L. Carpenter. Then more ico
cream, after which tho Band again fa
vored tho party, when they all sought
their homes, highly pleased with tho
evening's entertainment.
Fatal Arridrnt.
Wo clip the following from the
Chronicle, published at Sterling, 111.,
of dato Aug. 3. It will be remem
bered that Mr. Apthorp was former
ly pastor of tho Congregational Churcli
of this city, and tho children were
well known here and beloved by all :
"On Friday morning last, five child
ren of ages ranging from fivo to nine
years, wcro at play in tho sand-pit on
tho premises of Richard Arcy, Jr., in
Colon, when tho bank cai ed in and
completely buried three of them, tho
dthcr two being covered up td th
waist and shoulders. "Willie Wells,
who was least covered, managed to
dig out, aud running to tho house,
some twenty rods, told what had hap
pened. His mother ran to tho road
and gavo the alarm to several men
who wero working on the street, while
tho hired girl ran to the pit, and had
released tho youngest, Carl Apthorp,
who was partially buried. Tho meu
from tho road at onco set to work vig
orously to uncover tho others, and af
ter removing about four feet of sand
and earth they were found, one stand
ing nearly erect, and the others pros
trato, with lifo extinct, though the
bodies wcro still warm and limber.
The names of tho little ones thus sud
dcnlv snatched from fond parents, arc :
Emma Wells, daughter of Mrs. llich
ard Arey, Jr., and her former hus
band, Stephen Wells, who died from
hardship and exposure iu tho army,
and the two oldest sons, (Allio and
Grant,) of Mr. Apthorp, a Congrega
tional minister, who recently came
from-Michigan, and leaving his family
with friends here, had gone to Iowa to
look up a future home. Telegrams
wero immediately sent to him, but as
his exact locality was unknown, it is
not certain at this writing, on Satur
day that ho will get tho word in timo
to see tho faces of his sons before they
aro buried. Tho bodies were carried
to the residenco of It. II. Jenkins,
who is brother-in-law to Mr. Apthorp,
and foster father to Mrs. Arey, whero
they wcro packed in ico to await the
arrival of tho stricken father. A
more sadly beautiful sight wo never
saw than that of thoso thrco sweet
faces, in a row, serenely beautiful in
their unwaking sleep, just as they wero
caught by tho restless sands, in tho
midst of their innocent, happy sports.
It is duo to Mr. Arcy to say that he
has always been very careful never to
i leave his pit in such a conditian that
a caving in was possible, always throw
ing tho bank down where it was likely
to fall, beforo leaving it ; but on tho
morning of tho accident, sortie parties
from this city had taken out a load or
two and, unknown to Mr. Arey, and
doubtless with little thought of the
fearful consequences that might follow,
had left tho bank in a dangerous con
dition. 'P. S. Mr. Apthorp arrived on
Monday, and the funeral took place in
tho afternoon of that day. They
sleep as they died together, side by
side. Tho attendance was very large."
Early Friday morning, while Po
liceman Sheridan was attempting to
arrest a negro, named Oeorgo Brown,
for disturbing tho peace, ho was stab
bed in the left side, receiving an ugly
wound. Brown then ran, but tho of
ficer pursued and captured hira after
shooting him twice, onco in tho shoul
der and onco in tho abdomen. Both
men arc dangerously hurt.
