A fair, sweet Dice where itlU m smile
THe pallid lips ly o'er,
Ai if 'twere but a little while,
Perhaps n hour before,
Since life Id all iu glory sued
Each nerve so helpless now.
And that touuk heart that nnw is stilled,
Aud warmer that marble bruw.
A dainty robe arrays her form,
And tiny boots Iit fret;
A little glove with lining warm
V. uosebattona scarcely meet, -
Encases closely one small hand; . -
Bnt act '! the other holds
A golden luckot, 'neatli the band
Ot misty bosom folds. . ."
What grlefbas preyed npon that mind
So great tlwt caused audi doom ?
Induced such eliiidlikc form to and
Beneath the waves a tomb?
Perhaps she roam da homeless waif
And found oo helping; arm;
No place where ever free aud safe,
Bheleit from ain and harm. .
Or was her home some mnnsion tail
Where beauties decked each room.
From garret down to prlucwty ball
As scorning thought of gloom?
Maylinp some Launceiot gay and bold
A fickle part hatll played; -Jiur
dreams how soon all still and cold
In death that form is laid.
Borne to the morgue, no name is found,
Do mark bv which to tell.
Whether that, brain were weak or sound.
Or why so far she fell.
Whether a naiden pure and good
lirourn weary of her life,
Weury drudging for cluthes and food
oa iu pitUess strife; .
Whether an erring castaway.
Who sought her shame to hide
By quenching out lifo's gloomy ray.
Beneath the silent tide.
Whate'er it was all now Is o'er.
And nought may do her wruug;
Of her last act then say no more
bu.cn thlugs to tiod belong.

Eaton August 1826—Eaton in
1820 Eaton contained less than
half the population that it does now.
Then the streets, side walks and alleys
were unimproved. The old Court
House stood on ihe public square, with
the doors perniissiveiy left open, and the
sheep often ventured into the forum of
justice. Joshua Collett, was Chief
Justice of the Court of Common Pleas
Joseph C. Hawkins, Clerk, and Johu J,
nawkins, Sheriff. Wal'er Buell, Sta
ples Thorn 1 .sou and.JohuJKor.land kept
tavern, and Cornelius Vanaui'dal, Hen
ry Jloufort Mid John Clopper, sold
goods, wares and merchandise. Alex
rndcr liitchell and Thomas Morgan
were cabinet makers and worked on
Barron and Main streets. Asa W.
Malny made winsor chairs, ai.d David
Shanklin little wheels. Stephen Long
carried on the. tanning business wl ere
Martin Kheafnss is now engaged in the
sat e trade. Philip Helm and John
Gentle were sadcVers and harness
n.r kers, aud had their siloes on west
Main street. William Watt had a car
ding machine 011 the couth side of east
i' ain street. Walter Bi.ell and Jesse Par
amore, were the principle physicians,
at (1 David I", Heatou and Lazarus Mil
ler, the priuciple lawyers. Isaac
Stephens was Justice of the Peace, Re
corder, and 0110 of the common purr
ixse men of the town mid county.
William Bri ce, the proprietor of the
town had a grkt mill ai d a carding
machine, coi-nected with afulling mill,
mar the soulh western limits of the
town. Colonel John Acton ar.u John
fiardner tarried on the hatting busi-
thr one on the touth side of west
Main street, and the other ou the east
side of south Bar; on street John
Smith and Lis mother had a bakery, ou
the north side of Slain streut, nearly
oppo ite to the present site of the Court
House. The old jail stood ou the south
side of the public square, and was par-
tia ly under ground ou the alley, and
the Jailor lived above. The public
square was enclosed by an old board
fence, with no shrubberry or trees,
and the south side, adjoining the alley
was an elevated bluff, i nd irregular iu
surface. ! ;:

waggon makers aud carried on shop 0:1

Ihe mail was then carried 011 horse

master. Samuel Tizzard then edited
and published the Kegis er, on the
west side of north Barrou street, where
his son William B. Tizzard now re
sides. Jonas Albright, Henry Moil-
ft rt, Jane Vansickle aud Sally Sutton
were the chief church singers, who
have not been surpassed, if equaled,
that oeautitul art since. The improve
ments then were principally located
