admit to be practicable and sound
There is no doubt but that if our
women could help select and pre
pare the choice and small fruits lor
mai ket. it would go in bet ter shape,
there would be less wato and more
encouraging returns. As the sug
gestions are somewhat in line with
those of Miss Smith before the

She said a farmer's wife should
be a farmer' wife; but the trouble
now is she want, to be like city
folks. She should be educated n
the love ot her home, to decor. .
the house tastefully, and be tan,
how to pack apples, so that ti
won't be rotten when they go to t .
city. The women are not educated
in the art of barreling them. That
explains why there are so many
rotten apples in Washington mar
ket. It the farmer' daughters
would give I, attention to tall
millinery, monstrous bustles and
other new- tangled developers, we
would undoubtedly find a better
stock of apples 111 the maiket at
this season of the year, w hieh might
range in price from live to ten dol
lars a barrel. The American Agri
cultural Society owe Mrs. Twitchell

Mr. Brogden arose and denied any
intention of making any personal re
daction on any body, and wanted the
urote.-t return d to him for revision. It
was so ordered: but the language had
raised an irrepressible feeling of indig
nation and the row commenced again.
Twenty men were speaking at once,
and everybody was making a noise of
some kind. Mr. Brogden rose to ex
plain, and commenced to make his ex
planation clear by quoting Burns. He
was straining his voice, which could be
heard in the uproar, but not a word
could be understood. Speaker Webster
got on his feet, grasped the gavel, rolled
up his sleeves and commenced a bom
bardment of the desk. Brdgden spoke
louder, the gavel descended quicker
and harder everybody yelled the
spectators in the galleries were on their
feet, some members were standing on
the desks, some in chairs, and all were
yelling and calling "Mr. Speaker.' The
gavel continued its rattl: the Speaker
beat a hole entirely through the yvalnut
desk and found a new spot on which to
begin operations. One member moved
to adjourn: somebody t"ld him to go to

that the House commenced to think it
would be best to subside a little. The
Speaker saw the ctTect. smiled grimlv.

had the city hall bell tolled for half an

HIS REMARKABLE CAREER.
Henry Ward Beecher, the eighth
child of Lyman and Roxana Foote
Beecher, was born in Litchfield, Conn.,
June 24. 151:;. Allof Mr. Beecher's boy
hood, as well as his later life, was char
acterized by an intense love of nature
and a fondness amounting, almost to a
passion for being out of doors. At the
age of twelve his father removed to
Boston, and Henry entered the Boston
Latin School, where he remained for a
year. Then he went t ) Mt Pleasant,
in Amherst, to prepare for college, and
in 1530 he entered the f reshman class
at Amherst. In the last two years in
college he taught district schools, be
ginning his library with the money ob-
taihed, preached and spoke regularly
in religious meetings, lectured on tern-
perauce, ana, as tiie anti-slavery agi
tation was just beginning, took his po
sition boldly as an abolitionist. Hav
ing been graduated in 1S34. he began
the study of theology under hia father
at Lane seminary, Cincinnati. Here
he was thrown into a life full of excite
ment, activity, and controversv. In
1S30. he appeared hrst publicly as the
champion of the anti-slavery cause.
The utterances of the I'litiantliroplst. an
anti-slavery paper in Cincinnati, edited
by James G. Birney. a slave-holder who
had emancipated his slaves, became
offensive to the strong pro-slavery ele
ment. A riot broke out and for a week
Cincinnati was overrun by a mob
headed by Kentucky slave-holders.
Young Beecher asked to be sworn in as
one of the special policemen, and
armed with a pistol patrolled the
streets. In I537 Mr. Beecher con
cluded his theological studies. He
married Miss Eunice White Builard.
and. taking the tirst Oiler made him.
settled over a Presbyterian church iu
Lawrenceburg. net far from C incinnati.
A larger held of usefulness was opened
in 1SJU by a call to Indianapolis, then
a town of about '-."3oU inhabitants. Here
he lived for eight years, and here his
itiiluence as a speaker, writer, and
thinker began tr make itself stronglv
felt. " "
In June, IS47. Mr. Beecher was called
to the pastorate of Plymouth Church,
Brooklyn, thtn just erected, and re
mained its pastor ever since, t nder his
care Plymouth Church rapidly increased
in numbers and in l! uence. Mr. Beecher
continued incessantly his war against
slavery in the pulp.it. through the
press, and from the lecture platform.
He labored ardently for the election of
Lincoln, and when the w ar brake out
his church raised and equipped a regi
ment, the First Long Island, in which.
Mr. Beecher's eldest son was an ofiicer.
His varied labors at length told ou his
health, and he went to England for
rest and recuperation. He delivered a
series of lectures there on the war in
the Cnited States, and at a number of
places he was received with demon
strations of hostility. Soon after the
close ot the war Mr. Beecher made a
visit to the South, and was present at
the raising of the national lag on Fort
Sumter. In August. 1574. after some
years of scandalous reports. Theodore
Tilton brought his suit against Mr.
Beecher for improper relations with
Mrs. Tilton. The trial was opened in
the city court of Brooklyn on Jantiary

Ocala, Florida, Feb. 20, 1887.
Died of consumption at his home, m '
Ocala, Florida, February 19th, 1887
Wm. Cox, aged fifty years and eighteen
days. Wm. Cox was the son olEd--ward
Cox, a Baptist minister of Onslow
county, N. C, and was born near Jack
sonville on the first day of February,
1 S37 .
In companr with his uncle Lawrence
Henderson, he came to Florida in 1854
in the 17th year of his age. By his
own individual efforts, he defrayed the '
expenses of his education, and began
life in a new and undeveloped country
on his own resources. Unaided and
alone, he fought life's battles man
fully, until the 19th day of January,
1S73, when, under the influence of a
kind Providence, he led to the hy
meneal altar, to be the partner of his
sorrows and his joys, the accomplished
and original Miss Lou Pearson t)f
Orange Springs, Florida.
As long as his uncle Lawrence Hen
derson lived Mr. Cox never left him.
Immediately prior to his death Mr.
Cox had resided in Ocala about 7 years,
where he was known and admired as a
man of a high type of character; and,
though he suffered many years with the
d isease of which he finally died, yet he
was. at all times, possessed with a clear
mind and an active energy by which
he succeeded in accumulating a very
considerable amount of this world's
goods. Mr. Cox was conscious to the
last seemed fully aware that death
was near he expressed himself as
fully prepared to enter into a high and
happier life beyond the dark river of
His life is a fine illustration of what
a man of great force of character and
untiring energy can accomplish, even
though preyed upon almost all his life
hy that living death, consumption.
Mr. Cox. perceiving that the end was
nigh, arranged all his business matters
so that his devoted wife would have
little or no trouble with the manage
ment of his estate. He leaves a wife
and three children and many admiring
friends to mourn his loss. And at the
request of his bereaved family, I take '
this method of informing his numerous -family
connections, that, a good man
has fallen, that their ncftsta relative.
