strength uncombined will result as a utility
in any good cause, so it remains to be seen
whether the power existing always, but
broken by factions, will arise to the oc
casion in the future and accomplish much,
or remain as heretofore fragmentary and in
complete.
Upon Friday of this week the Medical
Society having transacted its business ad
journed. The greater number of the dele
gates will, with their families and friends
make an excursion to New Orleans over
the Arkansas Valley route. This will
bring some of the representative profession
al men of the State to the Exposition upon
Arkansas day the 28th of April, we are
glad to think that this is so ; for the out
side world does not yet know or appreciate
Arkansas. This one day that she steps
forth before the nation should certainly be
a day of creditable representation for her,
so far as her products, her resources, her
citizens and her motives are concerned.
Late and special dispatches from Kansas
relate the effect of a waterspout or a cloud
burst upon the residents of Medicine River
The dispatch says the water rolled down
over the lowlands from five to twelve feet
perpendicular carrying death in its wake.
Whole families are known to be drowned,
while men, women aud children along the
route of the flood are clinging to trees in
the hope that rescue may arrive. Are we
in our homes of comfort half thankful
enough for the kind providence of God
daily surrounding and guarding us from
the imminent perils that beset life.
Barrios, the President of Guatemala is
certainly dead, the doubt which existed
concerning his death has been removed.
The following account of his death in bat
tle and of the sailing of his family will be
read with interest:
“ The bullet entered his right shoulder
passed through his heart and out through
the left side. Meanwhile the battle had
commenced, and in a short time both sides
withdrew from the battlefield, but not un
til a determined and successful effort had
been made to recover the body of Barrios,
Mrs. Barrios, wife of the late president, and
seven children were among the passengers
on the steamer Grenada, which has just ar
rived from Panama. Her son, Antonio
Barrios, arrived yesterday from the east.

and regret, and the quaincness of the book
is its complete simplicity and unworldli
ness. The living of two people, in happy
contentment without the retinue, the up
holstered stuffiness, or the grand desire for
display that seems to so possess the times.
This is their room at Fort Lincoln:
“ Large photographs of the men my hus
band loved kept him company on the walls.
They were of General McClellan, General
Sheridan and Mr. Lawrence Barrett. Over
his desk was a picture of his wife in bridal
attire. Comparatively modern art was
represented by two of the Rogers statuettes
that we had carried about with us for
years. On a wide lounge at one side of
the room my husband used to throw him
self down on the cover of a Mexican
blanket—often with a dog for his pillow.”
And the happy time they had tegether
in New York, living their simple lives, in
the most individual way; and then the last
sad chapter, gives us some idea of the vigil
kept by wives during the last sad conflict.
“In the antumn we went into the States
and spent most of the winter delightfully
in New York. We went out a great deal.
Os course we were compelled to dress
very plainly, and my husband made great
sport of his only citizen overcoat —an ul
ster. He declared that it belonged so to
the past that he was the only man besides
the car-drivers who wore one. It did not
disturb him in the least; neither did going
in the horse-cars to receptions and dinners.
He used, laughingly, to say, “Our coach
man wears our livery, Libbie,” when the
car-driver had on an army overcoat. No
one so perfectly independent as he was
could fail to enjoy everything.
our life’s last chapter.
On Sunday afternoon, the 25th of June,
our little group of saddened women, borne
down with one common weight of anxiety, •
sought solace in gathering together in our
