Mr. Tbos. II. Ellis was iu our town
a lew days the past week, partly on
business aud partly for the purpose
ot visiting his father, mother aud
brother. He is now connected with
the house of Fink & Nasse, 17 N.
Main street, St. Louis Mr. Ellis Is
looking well, and is as genlel as ever.
May tils shadow never grow lest.
Mr. Warren Mitchell left Tuesday
for the Black Hills.
Miss - Moore, daughter of Mr.
Levi Moore, who has been afflicted
several years, died on the 14th inst.
Mr. Will Porter, while pruning
tree the other day, made a miss with
his knife, which inflicted a deep gash
in his leg.

day, four hogsheads of tobacco to 11.

teams returned to-night ladeu with
dry-goods and groceries,
We hsd just left him looking well,
and returning, casually opened the
door to behold In astonishment bis
cadaverous form strotched out on a
bench, only the whites of bis eyos
visible, when our breathless excla
matlon, "Can it be I" elicited a sep
ulchral groan, a facial contortion, and
lurid glaro that was frightlul: It
waa Casey Adams In the cold em
brace of a chill. Never was a livo
man so like a dead one. Jim II.,
though more rash, fared better in the
end. Rallying from the last attack
aud feeling another ono coming on,
he rushed frantically Into the street,
seizing our umbrella In his despera
lion, exclaiming, "I know this one
will kill me good-by!" and dashed
on through mud and rain to seo her.
He comes up this morning, happy and
smiling, and "cured, by grit."
We wero disappointed in not hav
mg a sermon by Eld. Errett last Sun
day, ho having been cut oil by the
floods. Sinco our first attendance
last fall, the weather has been unpro
pltious without an exception, we be
lieve, on the occasions of bis visits.
We learn that bis year's engagement
hero will soou expire, and that he
will close it with a week's meeting.
His zealous and able work in tbe
cause here haa Impressed us as mer
iting sucli recoKniilon as will, we
hope, eucourage him Iu a substantial
way lo continue his labors iu our
midst. Tho brethren and commu
nity at large can ill afford to lose
so valuable a co-worker In their bost
development. Mr.Elgln aud other co
laborers have sustained the prayer
meeting interest, and the former has
an encouraging list of subscribers to a
library fund for the benefit of a Sun
day school, which is to bo regularly
organized next Sunday.
Regardless of distance, floods and
storms, the pupils of llio High school
are dally at their posts. Unlike many
others, theso young ladles and young
men regret that the end approaches,
though the session has been long and
laborious. The pride, ambition and
application that havo beeu so unani
mously sustained are highly credita
ble to themselves, aud will provo a
blessing to thoso who foster their
cause. It la believed that the next
opening of thia Institution, in Sep
tember, will find improved zeal on
tho part of present patrons, au awak
ened support on tho part of others,
and a mora enlightened recognition
among tbe people at large. It is be
coming better understood that who
ever, alining at respectable citizen
ship aud manhood confidence, in any
commuuity, falls to perform his part
in the way of sympathy, encourage
ment and support of Its educational
Interest, Is au enemy to the public
weal and stands In his own light.
Drains and manhood are the coming
powers in our-tountry. This is the
spirit that la now marching over the
land, conquering and to conquer. Our
thoughtful cllhteus here aie imbued
with thia faith.
