Tho i a Angular one, and hardly has its equal jn atrocity in tho history of our county, ajid seems from begin ning to end to bo shrouded in mystery. It seems to us that a most damnable crime has lx'en committed and no doubt will receive tho fujlet-t investigation at the hands of tho proper ollicers. Tho youngest child was taken in charge by a sister of Mrs. Young who resides near Amazonia, and tho oldest child was placed in tho poor farm Wednesday evening, by tho coroner. The lossss by too recent great prairie lirea in South Dakota are estimated at &"2,O0J,O00; but it is not possible, as yet to give accurate figures in tho case.

Tho American frontiersman is a man who novor surrenders to any sort of difficulty .or calamity. This "vindication" business is getting .4'layod out.

The State Univorsity has received its full share of tho attention of the House during tho past week, npd tho most eloquent speeches of tho session were nrido upon this siibjtct joi-U.iday.

S.iniiorn occupied tho hall of the House of Iteprescntatives for nearly three Ifours last ni;;ht explaining his conduct at tho university farm, and to night, l'vpresentalivo Kniesley from .Bixno county, will attempt to answer him. A wonderful sensation was created this morning by tho introduction in tho I In use of a resolution requesting the ap pointment cf a" spacial committee to in vestigate into tho actions of certain members of Kith the House and Sonatc in receiving in a cerium room in the basement of tho capitol a largo imoico if whis'.ry. beer and cigars, from tho anti high Hccuao bill lobbyists for the purpose 'f coirupting and debauching lpjtislntors into opposing tho bill. His charged tlint women aro also found in this'"rofr4!shmaiit,rooni a nart of tho time, engaged with tho holding down ono of tho children with knife in hand. The mother was sitting on the bedside with tho babe in her lap, motionless and dead. Information was immediately .sent to Forest and marshal Lo'.rry was sent down to make an examination. Ho found Mr. Young at l.be house, and the babo dead; the mother luid left and gone to a neighbor's. On Monday Corouor Beyer was noti fied that a caso requiring his services was to bo found war the Raiser mill, and in company with deputy sheriff Edwards, proceeded .to .tho sceno of the mnrder, tho sheriff being armed with a warrant for tho arrest of tho father. On thoir arrival they found Young in the custody of Constable Jus. Browmandthe mother at tho r..wdnsj of Perry Brown, and it wjs thought by somo from her strango actions that sho had been pois oned. On tho coroner's arrival Jat tlio iouse where tho inhuman mother was found, and on leing questioned bv the coroner, s'atod that her husband had given her a doso of poison In milk, from a bottlo which he afterwards threw into tho stove. "When tho nriuhbors knocked at tho door of my home for admission, I was rational but was hfraid to let them in for fear of harm from my husband for ho had threatened mo and I kept silent. I wus accused of lwing-crazy by Mr. Youci; and ho was lwaa mean to his children. Ho killed the child with a quilt in which hs wrapped it and Einoth cred it. Ho said wo were all crazy and ho was trying to break the spell. Tho reason of my having tho child between my knees, head downward, when dis covered, was because I was trying to bring it to life. I killed my own child through fear of Mr. Young who said ho would do every thing to me." Here tho woman seeing that sho had mado a blunder in talking so froeiy, broke down and seemed to bu wandering in her mind. Tho officers then left the woman and proceeded jo tho home of constable Brown, and arrested Young and proceed ed on llieir way to (his city with prisoner where ho was lodged in jail that even ing. Ho states that his wire believes in witch-craft, but ho did not. She stated that sho was going to charm the witches away, by holding tho child between her knees, and warned mo not to seak or raise any alarm until sho was through, or sjio would have it all to do ovor. Thin was where I id wrongjn jieliljng to her. Ho stalpd that his wife had been in feeble health fcr some time, and had licenagroat sufferer from rheumatism. When qtijstioncd about- tho bottle he threw in tho stove, stated that it con tained camphor, and ho had purchased it from Mr, Luckhardt jit Forest City. Ho stated that his wife killed the child by crushing it between her kpces, claim ing to bo breaking the spell that sho might drive tho A'itchos away. When asked why ho did not let in his uoighbors when they knocked, replied that his wife had cautioned him not to do so for "she would havo it all to do over again" On Tuesday Morning Coroner Bever repaired to tho sceno, which is a ono roomed log cabin. Jan d tho inside appoint ments indicated tho inmates to lie in very poor circumstances. Tho Coroner began his investigation of the caso about ten o'clock, by impanncling tho follow ing named citzens of that vicinity as jurors: J. D. Walker, Abraham Sprey, Charles Anderson, Stephen Shajlor. Thomas Stewart and Edward Raiser, Five witnesses wore called: Jamb Raiser, j F. X. R.iiser, P. W. Wright. John Ridge, j way and Al Plummer. Mr. Wright gaio tho most important testimony nnd was abo-it as follows: "1 worked with John Young; I went to the timber Monday ! morning and worked until about eight o'clock, and as Mr. Young did not make his iippoaranco, I went to his house and knocked loudly on the doer three or four times, but no answer came. I heard j a child crying within. I could not see inside liccausp the window was blinded. I then loft tho place and went to the homo of Mr. Wagner near by and in quired if they had seen Mr Young or any of his family, and they stated that they had not. I then returned to Young's house and knocked three or four time.;, but as bef;r. received no answer, again I heard a child crying inside, but not so j 1 ..1 .. . l.r T .1 nun in thoir' " " drunken, revelrios and debasing prac- to tlie tensor nut!, where several hands ttcea. wore at work r.ud told thorn that somc- Nickc-U's iirove.

But he was intelli gent aud honest. T at saved him fiom tho contempt ot the M.ister, To lie tho mouthpiece of any mo for tho sake of gratifying curiosity s pretty pour business. Lut it alone. To lie a representative of ever so few for i righteous principle is worthy of a nan's best efforts. To represent onemiMt nit only believe what ono's constituents !o, but ono must bo able to formulate md handle the belief more intelligently than the majority. Tho mastery of tho Scriptures and of tho truths in this lesson is an essential to successful teaching and preaching. Tho Scriptures from Genesis to Revela tion, the whole revelation of God, may bo reduced to ono force, Love. Teach children love, so that their lives are one self -sacrifice, and that is enough, Here is ono ward that takes hold of tho heart and dominates tho life. Tho in. tejlect will follow fast enough. Let tho heart lead. Our religion holds the world by its"ffootions. Tho consuming passion to honor God and mako man purer and wiser and holier for Christ's sake ij enough guaranty for one's Chris tian character. This lovo must be a principle, not a theory. It must U intelligent as well as affectionate. It must bo iKv.vcrful, and not blind. If you aro troubled and think that the "lovo of God" is a vaguo term, go to work and reclaim somo poor wretch, or tako chargo of that erring man or woman until tho life is changed, or sco that rum hole is by lawful means blotted out and poor wivi weep for joy: then you will coaio tu kuow something of the love of God. Your "neighlmr" is any ono with whom you come in contact: whether the man who digs your trench or tho c:ishier who pays you your money; whether your washer-wouiiin or the President, uho?e hands you have shaken but osico. None escapes the name who has been touched by you, however remotely, in your earth ly career. Tho actual stato of your pof-Iove and what it ought to bo aro two different things. The selfish soul loves himself more than all his neighbors. Tho un selfish Eoul loves uach one of his neigh bors as much as he does himself, and tho mass of them many times more. He will willingly give up" his life to save theirs. Now if any ono is in doubt whether he is a Christian, let him apply this test that Christ give. It is enough.

Tho observance of Easter becomes moro universal each year; and novelties in Easter eggs and cards apjH'ar every year. The beautiful hand-painted cards and eggs seem a new thought ach time. For those who caro t- tako the trouble, somo pretty ones can bo mado this way: Puncture a small hole in each end aud blow out the contents, then paint the shells with geranium lake oil j-int and ceramic glazing. This gives them a I beautiful shade of red. On this can bo painted white flowers in inaFrvs Mid cir cles and bands. String them on tiny erim.'nm and white riblo:;" in groups of threes. They make a pretty effect tied to the lamp in the middle o I's room. Those should bo hen's eggs. Gooso eggs palntc-il a palo blue, with bands of gold and a few w hitc daisies, are very effective. Itjthe eggs are wanted for Easter morn ing breakfast: 'mil them hard and color with aniline des laid on with a brush; these can be had for ten ce.nts a paper. Gilded eggs strung with scarlet ribbons aro pretty tor iV'-or.itivo purposes. Very pretty bon-lnn boxes come in egg shape, filled In-iid. with tiny candies. Some people keep up the old German custom of hiding them in different places in the yard and telling tho chil dren the rabbits bring them -invito in the children's friends and have a regular egg hunt.

Ira Peter received intelligence of tho death of hu brotlior.Dr. Henry W.Peter, which occurred at It misvilie, Kentucky, on the 9th Inst, at tho age of about C years. Heart disease was tho cause. Many of our citizens who lived here lo- foro tho war will remember Dr. Peter as ho appeared ou our streets. Ho was al wgys moving about, nnd planning somo new enterprise to improve tho town nnd give employment to others. If a btranger appeared in town Dr. Peter was among tho Hrst to mako his acquaintance and to urgu him to make this his home. His enterprise led to many improvements that no now point to with pride. The court houso parkJames 1$. Payne's park, Daniel Schulto's orchard, indeed, many of tho orchards of Holt county owe their origin to him. Ho brought H H. Bur chess, of Rochester, Xew York, with a largo stock of trees and plants to this place. He engaged with J. H. Utt, 15. U. Frazor, Enoch Spaulding, James Foster, Dr. Gatling and others in tho founding of White Cloud, Kansas. Ho was also concerned in other town enterprises west of tho river, but White Cloud was his favorite. Ho was a slavo-holdor but doubled tho permanence of tho institu tion of slavery. It was no uncommon thing for somo of tho moro faithful to j upbraid hint with his association with Abolitionists at Whito Cloud; especially that "Old Hlack Abolitionist,Sol Miller," of tho Chief. His only reply to this was that "that was business," and ho had nothing to do with tho political opinions of his associates. Although at heart convinced of evil in hlavery he yet enlist ed in its supiwrt by joining with the iin-t movement to aid Price. John E. Wade and Frank Marsh, two of his drug clerks went with hint. He war, captured at Pea Ridge and placed in charge of a hospital at Memphis, where ho remained till tho close of tho war. At Memphis his wife, who had remained here, joined him. Sho died there somo time after nnd ho married his present wife, a lady in Arkansas. Sho survives him. Dr. Peter spent soveral years in Flori da endeavoring to establish himself in fruit culture there.but that was a failure. There were two things in his character which always prevented him from reaping tho just rewards of his labor,his generos ity and inability to collect what was due him. That was the caso here. He founded the houso of Peter & Ovelman, which occupied tho building now used by Hamilton Royd.with general merchan dise and tho adjoining ono of King & Proud, with drugs and medicines. Bo foro the war broko out W. B. Wilson Ixj- came a niemlier of tho firm, and its style ( was Ovelman, Peter & Wilson. The business of this house generally exceed -' cd 300,000 jer annum and the proiits , were large. Yet when tho Dr. went ,Suth ho left comparatively nothing: j principally owing to his infirmity of faii i ing to collect. Thousands of ilullars were duo him and but littlo was realized thereon. He had no bad habits and was not extravagant personally, yet his ad vent nt Memphis found him a loor man. After his Florida venture had failed, ho located in Louisville and engaged in the practice of medicine. Ho there entered the political arena and was the Republi can candidate for State Senator a few years ngo. He mado a good race but was defeated. ) FF 1CIAL STATEM KXT Kerns and C'oliii-.s.
