3 REST FOR THE WEARY. A Tear's Recreation for Paten, of Holden. Rev. BUDGE" AT BUNOETON. A Temperance Wave Has Struck Our Neighboring- Town. y Holden, March 6, 1882. Editor Bazoo: Rev. J. P. Patch has returned from a trip to Indiana and New York. His cancer is again trouhling him and his medical advisers insist on a year's rest from his pastoral labors. He preached his farewell sermon Sabbath morning to a large and sorrowing congregation. "With but few exceptions he is perfectly idolized by his flock, and had those who have so earnestly fought against his noble work, with no comprehensible reason but jealousy, and wanting to worship God without spending a dollar, used their efforts in creating brotherly love and spreading the greatest of all virtues, charity, among their fellow creatures, their conscience, if they possess such an organ, would rest easier when they look upon the emaciated form and faltering step of the man who, if he has a fault, it is too much interest in God's work to properlv care for his own physical disabilities. Farewell to you, brother Patch; may the almost unanimous verdict uttered by your co-workers, "Well done thou good and faithful servant," brighten your walk and lessen the anguish of stinging pain in the ordeal you will have to encounter at Rome, and rest assured the monuments you have built by zealous work will ever remain fresh in the memories of Holden's best citizens, while the rotten tombs of envv !

Editor Bazoo: A mighty change has come over us here. We have become tem perate. They have struck us at last. Col. Hickman gave us his temperance lecture a few days ago, and now at this solemn hour hundreds of our citizens are with him at the church and are taking the solemn pledge. No more intoxicatingdrinksfor us. Away with the wine and the lager beer. We wish to taste them no more forever, for we are temperate. Everything is extremely quiet at this writing. The saloons are all closed in front. What little intoxicating spirits there may be here, is quietly stored away until called for, for we are temperate. "We drink no more, nor buy nor eell ; Away,4away the howl."" The good people of this town, the brave women and lair men, are once more united over the pledge. Peace and harmony su premely reign, and we, 1 repeat, are tem perate. We have longed to be temperate, and now we are happy. Mr. Editor, were you ever temperate? If 3'ou ever were, you must know how we feel here in Bunceton. If we ever did any thing wrong, we are sorry.

Lex Loci. The sporting reporter of the Times Democrat was seated at his desk with a bad cigar in his mouth, and busily engaged in writing up a thrilling description of the horses to be entered at the spring meeting of the Louisiana jockey club, when the city editor suddenly exclaimed: "By George! I almost "allowed that Thornberg-Hallmau wedding to escape my memory, and its going to be one of the toniest afiairs that has happened in New Orleans since the war. I guess, Bunker," said he, addressing the sporting reporter, "you had better go down to the church and fix up the wedding, as all the rest of the staff are engaged. Do you think you can do the subject justice ?" "Yes, sir." 'Well, go ahead then, and give a full and graphic account ot the bridal party and the ceremonies. The sporting editor, witli race horses chasing each other through his brain, grabbed his hat and disappeared. In the course of an hour he returned, and, seating himself, commenced writing. When he had finished the report he turned to the city editor and said : "I've fixed up this wedding in high style, and if you don't ob ject I'll read the report to you."

He said : "I will answer your question frankly, but I desire that you print my exact words. You know our paper has changed hands and is now owned by the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy road.

The elements have transpired to put a damper on the sessions of the Sunday school congress, now holding sittings in this city. Jtmt with true .Methodist fervor the brothers and sisters have turned out to the meetings in goodly numbers, and even the other churches have been fairly represented. Last night, raining as it was, the Ohio street M. E. church held quite a large au dience which had gathered to hear Rev. Dr. J. H. Vincent lecture on "That Boy's Sister." The subject is just sensational enough to be "catchy," and is calculated to arouse curiosity. But sensationalism is the order of the day. After some spirited singing, Dr. Vincent was introduced and began his lecture, lie has a fine platform appearance, a well trained voice, deep, sonorous and pleasant to hear, and speaks, or did last night, in a collo'quial manner, though ii is evident he can preach a good, old-fashioned camn and the two . i . altar covered with uowers as bright as jockey colors, was filled with a large crowd of people who were anxious to see the great matrimonial race.

From the hrst word to the last the audience sat j enrapped by the speaker, as he vividlv, j humorously, beautifully pictured Bob's sister's life from the tiny rose-bud of the tapped aud the bridal coming up for the start. "The bride was a beautiful little lilly, with a broad, smooth forehead, on which rested a forelock of soft llaxen hair, which indicated gentleness and mettle. 1 1 er eyes showed spirit, and although she was coupled rather short, her form, from her well-poised head down to her slender fet locks, was simply perfect. By her side as she came up the main track to the minis ter's stand pranced an old bald-headed stallion, slightly sway-backed and stiff in the joints, who was evidently her sire. He looked as if he had been on the vjrf for a great many years and had made a good record. The bride-groom was a splendid-looking fellow, and stood about seventeen and a half hands high, deep in the breast, broad across the hips and small around the thinks. His hair was a chestnut brown, and he had a proud look, which clearly proved that his pedi gree was fine. When the ceremony was over he spurred up to his bride, and as he escorted her down the tlower-covered track he stepped high, with his neck bowed and the vast concourse of people expected every minute to hear him snicker with delight and see him reach down and bite the bride back of the ear. The costume of the bride attracted the attention of every one pres ent, and elicited many exclamations of surprise. She was attired in a handsome dress of dun colored stuff, to which was at tached a dapple-gray basque of the same material, trimmed with a sorrel fringe and ! iooped with dark bay ribbons and roan . tinted lace As the bridal party were ' leaving the church the stand how happily he had been dispatched " -y"'" one propose 10 nut- returned to the Monroe house with an orii- and, without considering the facts, tele- I " wu . . , :l u,c-v six days a j cer who compelled them to return the proi graphed to me and Fred Skiff and Koth t,rack W,U l)e prepared at Armory hall for , ertv although thev tried to hold back om that we could resign."

A passenger on the incoming Missouri Pacific informed a Bazoo reporter, this morning, that the storm was more severe at Kansas City and Leavenworth than it is here. then lecturers do not like such treatment. At times the audience was convulsed with laughter as the lecturer painieu in vivid language some girlish freak or character, and then again tears would start over thesorrows and woes of a saddened home or heart. There seemed to be some over-drawn pictures, but the general portraiture of the girl and woman as she now is was true to life. The doctor does not believe very strongly in woman suffrage, is not a large stockholder in the belief that woman ought to preach or lecture, and is decidedly op posed to some of the latest fashion crazes. He is an orthodox teacher as to woman's sphere, though perfectly willing that she should toil wherever taste, fitness and profit lead her; only so that it be a con tistent field of labor. He caused quite a laugh when referring to women as butch ers, undertakers, car drivers, car conduc tors, and like callings. "The home is the j place pre-eminent for woman, and there are three places where she should always reign supreme the kitchen, the nursery, the parlor." His argument for this state ment was most happy and cogent, and was a treat to the audience. The lecture closed by a description of a vision in which crvstals of beautiful rhetoric shone like bright stars in a June sky. They who heard it will not soon for get it, and the moral it contained went home to all hearts. The doctor is to be congratulated on his success of last even ing. A Dead Injun. Ouray Solid Muldoou.

She has relatives witjiin 200 miles of Pittsburg, but will not go to them. Young Zetmier will probably pass her oft as his wife until he reaches Pittsburg, when he will drop her and leave her to care for herself. This is a very sad case indeed and may turn out in the final ruin of an exceedingly bright and handsome little girl.
