Of Egg Throwers.
; Under the caption, "That Egging,"
the Flora Journal of April 3 lives the
follow ing account of Rev. Batchelder's
troubles in the North Country:
"As much as editors like to give the
news, and especially the sensational,
tlie Journal did not publish an account
of the egging scene of more than two
weeks agr. from pure shame that we
hud youna men jr. our communities
who would stoop so low as some have
proven themselves, capable of doing.
However as tlie blushes of some who
hoard the sermon of Rev. F. VV.
Batchelder on "The Popular Dance"
lias readied outside points, with un
mistakable gurgles of satisfaction that
the minister was egged, bubbling from
beneath said blushes, we will say :
"We w ere not preM0nton the occasion
of the sermon mentioned but have yet
to hear of a friend or enemy stating
that the minister made any false
assertions. And we have yet lo heal of
a pelson who did not return to hear the
Reverend gentleman preach. The
congregation seems to have been made
up of about three classes: - Those who
thought it the minister's duty to' ex
pose sin in all its forms, excellent
people who thought the wording too
plain and the don't care class n any of
w hom were probably hit w ith missus
thrown with better effect than were the
eggs which were thrown from that
barn later. For, contrary to the ac
count the News Record gave, not an
egg hit its niurk, Htlrough the range
was not at all long. What was thought
might possibly be a splatter of one on
au overshoe was the only siirri of the
coin but he took away with him. As to
tlie parties not being, known, that is
stated here to I falsi).
"The sentiment seems to prevail,
ainong.'.t this latter class that a minister i
should dose out none but sugar coated i
pil's unless be i. handing out to
church members, anil then give it to
them strong and hitter. The saiiiej
element, tho'igh not the sitnie parties j
attended to meeting nt Paradise;
later. When the minister talked;
against the use of tobacco, although he'
admitted tint 11 mini could be a
Christian, (although a dirty one,) and '
use tob'cco, there were very strong1
protests made and it is said that some;
undertook to prove that they, could ba:
gentlemen and use the weed by spitting j
ambler between the leaves of the ttong
btfoks they could get hold of. On
Tuesday tiii'ht, the lust nigt,t of the,
Paradise meeting, some one oi. horse
