The citizens are intelligent, progres sive, industrious, religious and hospit able. The streets run at right angles, are well shaded and, with but lew exceptions, good sidewalks. The Christian church at Holden has a number of additions to their church this week, the result of a very interesting re vival. This city takes great pride in her churches, schools and colleges, of which she has a large number for the popu lation. Last week quite a number of female members of the "Indifferent Order of Nec essary Evils" was captured by Marshal II. if. Steele, from the Rose Hill town ship. H. J. Bates, perhaps, has the latest novelty in the way of a carpenter shop, it being supplied with all the ueeded ma chinery for work, but is run by loot or hand power. The members of the Old School Pres byterian church intend having the finest church edifice in Central Missouri. The size of the building is S0xG4 feet, facing the north and west. Its height is 45 teet to the comb, with a tower 85 feet to the apex, on the northwest corner. On the outer corner of this tower is another octa gon tower, 36 feet to the apex. South of of the main building is an ell. This build ing is divided into three rooms an audi ence room, wiih seating capacity of 300, a Sunday school room, capacity 100, and an infant class room, capacity iw. lie tween the SundaT school room and the au dience room is a large sliding door, that j when owned, throws the two into one vast room. The floor has a bow and a pitch of 16 inches from chancel rail to the back wall. On one side, at the back, is the choir, on the other side is a vestry room, and between the two stands the pulpit. Behind the pulpit is a large triple window 18x12 feet, with stained glass. The choir floor is 36 inches higher than the audience floor, with a close panel rail, 30 inches higher than its floor. Over this nil is a long arch. There are two entrances into first, the vestibule and thence to the audi ence room, an outside entrance to the Sun day school room, and one also into the infant class room. On each corner and on each side of every entrance connected with the main wall, is buttresses 30 inches square, of brick capped with Warrensburg lime stone. The building is lighted bv three large cathedral row windows, two of j them l'Jx'JO feet, and the other 10x1'-' feet, all with stained glass. Ine large tower has six gothic windows 7x3 feet, and three circular windows in the tower is the lielfry, with a 1"00 pound bell. Three Inner windows, ujwn large, heavy brackets, lets the proper sound escape from the lielfry. These towers are roofed with ointed slate, the roof of the church being shingles. The walls are built of the best tock, hand and compressed brick, neatly pointed or struck, and plastered on the inside. In the basement is a large furnace for heating the building. The pews, of walnut, are made and placed in a circle, with aisles on the side. The main entrances to the church are from the north ami west The roof is self-supporting. The architect. Mr. J. II. Maurice, of St. Louis, has quite a reputation for church building, this, be ing the seventh one to our knowledge, that has been builded by him. His foreman on the work, W. J. Russell, is a skilled me chanic, quick of observation, exacting in important duties, and a gentleman who has made many friends among the citi zens of Holden. ART NOTES. Mile. Jaquemast, a well known Pari sian portrait painter, is soon to marrv Mr. Edward Andre, a man of immense wealth. : The will of Claude Lorraine said, soon to be published bv Mrs. Mark Patterson, in L, Art. Thfc interesting and valuable document, has never appeared in print Library land the Rosa Bonheur, the greatest of modern artists, was born in Bordeaux, r ranee, March, 5rd 1822. Her father, Raymond Bonheur, was an artist of some original power, but was compelled by poverty to renounce his studies and devote himself to giving lessons in drawing. He was thus all his life, kept in the humbler tracks of his profession, thongh he found his reward at last in living to see the fame of his daughter. Nearly every one in Sedalia is ac quainted with the name of Mrs. Dr. Barker, not only in the capacity of a teacher in art, but as a lady whose paintings in oil arc exceedingly fine. Among her latest works is some beautiful flower designs up on satin that must be seen to be appreciat ed at their true beauty. The first of these is a cream colored satin bonnet Normandy in shape destined for Miss Allie Jackson, a young lady well known in Sedalia-paint-ed in wild roses. A large rose is in the center of the brim, and to the right and left is a wreath of buds and foliage falling toward the back. Upon the front of the crown there are three roses, and on the cen ter of the crown is a group of roses, buds, and leaves. The second piece of work is also a bon netof the same shape as the firsthand itcer tainly is as exquisite in its conception and finish as anything of the kind could well be. On this bonnet the design entirely the artists own is in pansies, nd they arc so skillfully depicted that it is hardly possible to Believe they are not natural. There are fourteen of these lovelv flowers upon the bonnet, and they are arranged with much taste. The grouping is very ! grouping fin. and the verv pleasing effect of light JF I and shadow are clearly noticaeble. Mrs. Barker proposes to place this latter work upon exhibition at the St. Louis fair, after which she will offer it for sale in that city. The make np of these artistic and beauti ful bonnets was the result of Mrs. Talbott's skill aud taste, and do her much credit. Mrs. Barker has in addition to these paint i'.s uon satin, some studies in oil which will be spoken of sometime in the near f:.ture. She is at present in Windsor, but will return from that point about the middle of October, bringing some of her finest works with her.

A prominent young man of this place attracted the attention of the youug ladies, a few Sundays ago, by wearing a large sunflower on his coat, to preaching. He adopted that plan thinking he would wist the affections of some young lady. Wc earnestly sympathize with the young man, and think, probably, he. will succeed in captivating one of them if he will only pop the question. He says, now, "he be lieves so himself."
