only a shadow thrown over the brow

morals going on. The appointment
of Gcn'l Straughan is not a surprise 1
iu itself; the surprise comes only iu
the time. That's all. Mr. Beane
had not endorsed Gen'l Straughan nor,
filed an application for any onc for;
that office because it was given out in !
Washington that Gen'l Petit would
serve his full term, aud that would
not expire until next February. The
fact is, and it will be so found out,
that the pressure of eastern friends i
like Vice President Stevenson, Sena-j
tors Pulmer, Voorhces Turpie and
others hastened his appointment and
it was due to them mainly that the,
appointment was made at the time it
was made.

old missionary and Dakota Indians i
The old man in his daily talks tiad
gottcu them interested in the heaven
ly kingdom. Oue day he told them
of the glories and beauties of the
j kingdom. He spoke of the New j
j Jerusalem with its lofty spires and j
golden streets. He told them of the
River whose waters make glad the
City of the Living God. He told them ■
that there was no night there and ;
sickness and sorrow were unknown, i
complimentary, and the meeting will
probably conclude with an excursion
to the City of the Saints and an ex- j
amination of the immense copper;
