The fesidence of James Lyttle was plundered one night last week, but it was not until Sunday afternoon that it came to light. Byron McKeown and family occupied the place last fall and winter, but during the holidays went east, leasing nearly ail their effects in the house. Some evil-minded person or persons, doubtless, gut an inkling of the costly Silverware (mostly wedding pres ents) Saving been left behind, and gain ing an entrance by loosening a sash-lock through a broken pane of glass in one 1 of the front windows they purloined all the valuables. Before leaving the rob bers were evidently anxious to cover up their deed I>\ burning the building after they ha l well made their escape. To I this end they placed a lighted lamp j (chimneyless) 111 a wash-stand. At the I time mentioned Mr. Lyttle went to the i bouse to pack up Mr. Keown's things. ! in response to the latter’s request re ceived a day or two before to ship east, and a feu glances showed what was up. Marshal l'ovey was immediately sum moned, and as a coal oil odor pervaded the atmosphere the lamp was found in the closed stand, still burning and the drawer above badlv charred. The robbery is supposed to have occurred Friday night, which was dark and rainy and well adapted to such an affair, but there is no clue to the perpetrators. Furs Wanted. I want 1 orth of raw furs.

Globe says: Of ten marriage engagement* the writer know* of, eight were broken by the men. The j remaining two ended in marriage, but not un- ; til a number of pootponementH by the men. This is a terrible slate of affairs, but j it is not surprising. The example of J Mrs. Lease and other female patriots in , the state of Kansas has doubtless had a j terrifying effect upon the marriageable young men. It is impossible for even | j the most sappy and sentimental young ; Kansas man to look matrimony in the j face without starting hack in horror. | No young man of spirit wants to he dry nurse for a house full of babies, to be chambermaid, seamstress, cook and washerwoman, while his wife is star ring the country as an matrix of woe and prophetess of calamity. Marriage under any circumstances is a serious thing, but in the state of Kansas it has exceptional and peculiar terrors. A vision of the wretched figure of old man Lease, with a row of demonstrative and dissatisfied babies on his knee, engaged in a pathetic effort to train down his hog-calling voice to a soothing lullaby, has come between a thousand pairs of loving hearts. We cannot blame the young men of Kansas. The women of j that state must reform if they want i husbands. They must forswear the stump or give up the altar. They must understand that no woman, however versatile and talented, can raise hell and children as a steady thing with suc cess. In short, the Kansas woman must learn to be a woman and let the Kansas man lie a man. Then love and senti ment and courtship and marriage will blossom anew, and life in the land of cyclones and whiskers will be wortli living.— Memphis Commercial.
