VAKIOt S UVl'I.V TOPICS.
The president of Gate's college, Ne
braska, llev II. K. Warren, spent a few
hours in Washington, last week. He
stopped oft' from the down train in the
morning to see Mr Turner, not knowing
that he had left Washington. He drop
ped In at A. S. Baldwin's to make some
Inquiries, who, finding him a stranger,
stranded him for some hours, took oc
casion to get a team and show him some
of the beauties of our einbrio ''Lennox
of Connecticut," and to Introduce him to
some of our leading citizens. He ex
pressed himself as highly pleased, but
regretted that more of the surplus mon
ey, spent so lavishly, could not be used
for the higher education of the youth of
the land, that came to him in such little
driblets. It was probably a natural feel
ing as the average total cost of a student
in their college, including board and
everything is less than $125 a year, so
that a little money with them goes a
great ways, and he could hardly help
thinking how much good some of the
extra thousands spent in adornment
would do in education. But It is the
same the world over. He stopped for
dinner at Frank Woodruff's and was ad
vised to attend the Cape-Church nup
tials, at the Episcopal church and wit
ness the departure of the bride-elect
from the Cape of Good Hope, to launch
out once more on the broad ocean of
connubial bliss. May she have a pros
perous voyage over the sea of life and
at last exchange the church militant for
the bosom of the church triumphant
A somewhat aggravating incident in
connection with the wedding occurred
with a young lady who had ordered a
dress, from Worth s, to grace the occa
sion (we suppose), which arrived at the
Washington depot in good time, but was
or rlooked or left there by the messen
ger who carries packages on to the Green
till an hour or two after the wedding.
We don't know know exactly what kind
of expletives young ladies use under
very great provocation, but this certain
ly was an occasion that justified a very
vigorous use of the king's English. How
ever, as she got a ring also, it ought to
partially make amends for the disap
pointment. B.

DEATH OK MISS F.I.SIE HERMAN.
It seems ns though we had written
more obituaries from this place during
the present year than ever before in the
same lergth of time. Although a partic
ular matter as well as sad, we consider it
a painful dutyv this week, to record the
decease of another who a native of this
place. By her life work and duty, was
called three years ago to New Haven and
died there on Tuesday of this week. Miss
KIsie Beeinau was the only daughter of
Mr and Mrs Oscar E. Beeman of this
place and among 10 grandchildren, she
was the only granddaughter of the late
Charles Cogswell of the village. She re.
ceived a good common education and
when arrived at maturity chose stenog
raphy as her chief occupation, learning
the art at F. II. Cogswell's school for
stenography in New Haven. After per
fecting herself sulllciently in this line of
educatiou, she found wprk in Bridgeport
and New Haven and for the last three
years as mentioned, she has been near
ly all the time at work in New Haven.
Several weeks ago she felt obliged, on
account of ill health, to come home,
which f he at tributed to overwork. About
two weeks ago she deemed it necessary
to return to New Haven for a short time
for medical attendance. As soon as she
reached New Haven she seemed to grow
worse and on Friday evening of last week
a telegram arrived here for her mother to
come at once to Elsie's bedside in the
city. Mrs Beeman accordingly went
down on Saturday morning's train and
found her daughter then past all hope of
recovery. As a result of a consultation
of doctors it was decided that acute
Bright's disease had strongly developed
with Mtes Elsie and the result was a
question of time only, which proved to
be short, as slit: died on Tuesday morn
ing of this week, aged about 23 year".
Her mother returned here on Tuesday
evening and the funeral was held at her
late home here on Thursday afternoon at
o'clock. The interment followed in
the cemetery here. So ends the earthly
ife of one whose hopes were bright, and
future seemingly most pleasant only a
few days ago. We have been told that
she was looking forward joyously to the
time in the near future when she intend
ed to be united in marriage to Cyrus M-
Tones of New Haven. Her many friends
most deeply S3'tnpathi.e with Mr and Mrs
Beeman and all other near relatives in
this sudden and great bereavement. She
has long been the idol of her parents and
the sad .event comes with almost crush.
