THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1883
5 Written for the Sunday Morning Bazoo. UNHEEDED. I never meant to pain your heart With that swift idle speech ; But ah ! how vainly we recall, When once beyond the reach. A heart beat, more or less perhaps, A quick, hot flush of pride, And forth there springs the bitter words Which we well nigh had died At other times, ere giving life, And counted less than naught. Because, with ail our being, love And tenderness is fraught. These eyes ot mine are wet with tears, These hours of mine are sad, And nothing gilds with sun or shine And nothing makes me glad. For still I hear that broken tone With quick emotion stirred, The mournful glance of sad surprise, As if the ear had heard But feiied to comprehend it quite. Ah! mine life-long regret, Those eyes were closed in death, alas ! Ere we again had met. And stilled the voice that I had loved And fondly hoped would live To answer b:ck wiih tender tones The heart's sad prayer, "forgive !" Ob. could, we know, or guess, or feel, The pain of future years When keen remorse doth wound the heart And haunt us with her tears. Then would we pause with swift affright, And choose a better fate The words were few I said,T know Thev made life desolate. Kosa Pearle. SOCIETY NEWS.

" 'Tis a con summation," etc. A Boonville gentleman received this week a letter from Hon. F. F. Bayardj United States senator from Delaware, in which the senator expressed his views in regard to prohibition. "As promoters of permanent temperance," he writes, "such laws have always failed, and by their at tempted invasion of individual liberty, of conscience and private self-control, have carried great evil in their train. Few sub jects are so important as to require more careful analysis." Gov. Sherman, of Iowa, wrote that the home bad triumphed over the saloon, and the church over the dram shop in that state, and that prohibition was a decided success in Iowa. The Holden Enterprise this week prints two "personals," in each of which "a young man strangor in the city would like to correspond with some young lady about eighteen years of age" A brunette is preferred by one of them, and the object is "fun, and nerhaps matrimony."

Poor, poor fel lows! WE WOULD WONDER. If Smith actually laughed ? If Will Bell heard spirits rapping? If Sam Hannaca is going dear-hunting ? If Joe Salem really thought, Friday night, it was candy?

"Who do you think the republicans will nominate the next time ?" asked a reporter of the Galveston, Tex., News of the Bev. Henry Ward Beecher. "I think Mr. Arthur will be the candi date. There is no serious objection to his nomination. His administration has been singularly wise and judicious. His ap pointments have met the approval of the public. He entered office under very singular and unpleasant circumstances, but I think no candid man will deny that he has done well." "Don't you think the democrats, with all their alleged poverty, could put up a stronger and better man than Arthur?" "I don't think they can. Arthur is as good and prudent a man as James Mon roe, yet the name of Monroe is sometimes linked with those of Jefferson and Madison and the abb r presidents. We don't want a brilliant man Lr president Now, I be lieve that Blaine is a dangerous man. He is rash, headstrong and scheming, and would not be satisfied to run along in the old grooves. He would want to mike some coup de main that would give him a historical name. Ten chances to one we would be wrangling with other nations all the time if be should become president. Arthur is the safest and wisest man, and his quiet, unassuming administration has given geaeral satisfaction." "Who do you think the democrat will nominate ?" I "I have not the least idei." BAD BUTTERWORTH. An Ohio Man Who Holds Places High Up Has a Terrible Early History. Special Correspondence Sunday Morning Bazoo. Cincinnati, Oct. 16. That every life contains a history is un doubtedly true, but that all lives contain the history of a crime is exceptionable. However, be that as it may, your cones pondent happened upon an incident in the life of the lately appointed commissioner of patents, Mr. Bt?n Butterworth, of this city, a few days ago, which is as full of. villainy of a sensational kind as the day can afford. Years ago, in u snnny little village called Maiuevule, iu this goodly state of Ohio, composed for the most part of quiet, plain, unpretending people from the state of Maine, Uiere dwelt a young man of ex ceedingly brilliant attainments and great personal attractiveness. He was the son of upright and well-to-do parents, whose respectability was unquestioned aad whose social standing gave the young man the en irce to tue btbt circles that the staid little town afforded. This was Ben Butterworth, genial, handsome, gifttd, but with all the neartof a sensualist beat in his breast, and the schemeb ot a libertine agitated the workings of his busy brain. In the same place resided a Methodist miuisier by the name of Jo-eph Gatch, not remarkable in his calling perhaps, nor one to mark an era in the world tor his elo quence, but devout, pure-minded and teaching rather by his example than his precepts. His family was composed of an amiable wife, two daughters and two sons, and it is with the eldest ol these daughters our story has to deal. Ella Gach was perhaps 17 years of age, of medium height, a graceful well rounded figure and possessing a face, whose clear, brunette complexion, delicate features and brillliant coloring, made up a picaire of re markable beauty. In addition to these charmer, the mind of the young girl was stowed with kuowledge, and in the village academy her intelligence, as well as her modest and unassuming deportment were subjects for commeudaiion. She, too, was a social favorite, and at the church social and evening nurry making, her laugh rang the clearest. In an hour fraught with evil, however, she met, as she was bound to do, moving in the same circle, Ben Butterworth, and at once there sprang up and attachment between them, which soon ripened into the most ardent and pas sionate love. Just why is not known, but the father of Miss Ella objected to the attentions of But terworth to his daughter and the result was clandestine meetings arranged sometimes at the homes of mutual friends, sometimes with no eye, save God's, to see, and no canopy but the bending sky whereon shown the glimmer of countless stars. People began to talk, at first in whispers, at last openly, and the father of the young girl hearing of it, with a heart pained with her disobedience, entreated her to give up her loyer and remain quietly with those whose tried and true hearts she could de- I pend upon. Tears and protestations were her answer, and for a time it seemed that the counsel of her father had prevailed and the wiles of her lover were unheeded. But, alas ! one morning it was discovered that the young girl had disappeared, and with her the fascinating Ben, and as they could not be traced, the heart broken parents tried to console themselves with the belief that at least the elopement had been sol emnized by marriage. That this was er roneous was ere long proyed, for it was as certained that the once beautiful and win some girl bad gone to an aunt, who resided in Cleveland, Ohio, and there deserted by the one in whom she had so fondly trusted, had found a refuge. A babe was born, and one day the hapless young mother, during the absence of her aunt, in a fit of despera tion killed herself and the infant. The tragedy cast a gloom over the hearts of those who had known her in her inno cent young girlhood, and nearly deprived her parents of life. And was there no pun ishment meted to Butterworth the seducer? Perhaps in the lonely hours when remorse made him its prey, not otherwise. After a time he came back to his old haunts, and while his offense was not condoned, yet at least it was tolerated, and once more hand some Ben was welcomed in society. A few years afterward he met a wealthy Virginia lady whom he married, and soon his name 'began to appear as a politician of rising power. In the year 1878 he was elected to represent the first congressional district of Ohio in the 46th congress, and filled the po sition with credit to himself and friends. Since that time he has figured in the po litical world in various positions, and fast week, as is well known, he was appointed aa commissioner of patents under President Arthur. Honors have been given him and to-day he sits in high places, but in a nameless grave on the shores of blue Lake Erie there sleeps a victim for whose lost soul one day Ben Butterworth, powerful, respected and honored as he is, shall make answer to that God who said, "Vengeance is Mine."
