I walked abroad in the budding wood, Witli the sunshine falling tnro'; The spring breathed softly where I stood, 'Mong the nestling violets blue. And my heart responded, "God is good" In spite of all we do! I knelt amid the blossoms sweet— I loved them. Oh! so well— Tliey gathered, fragrant, 'round my feet Witii something dear to tell. Of by-gones where the mem'rles sweet And neart-thoughts love to dwell. Of woodland bright; and sparkling stream Wliieh glides past the feniy feet Of purple hills; in memory's dream They make a picture sweet. When love lights up with tender gleam. The beecheu shade's retreat. Oh! there the violets used to grow; Aiid where the sliding brook Wouud tiiro' the meadow lot below. The dell's clear fragrant nook. They nodded to the wavelet's flow. By the path, we children took. And bergainot, and cowslips fair Drooped o'er the pebbled tide, And made a tiny covert, where The minnows oright could hide. When bare feet flying swiftly there, Passed to the other side. Oh! air so soft, Oh! skies so blue, Dost linger o'er the scene? Do violets sweet smile up to you Where elms and maples lean? Do yellow flowers hide from view. The minnows soon as seen? Ah! yes I trow 'tis still as then— I will not have It otherwise— The hills, the brook, the lovely glen. Sweet childhood's paradise. Shut out from busy ways of men. Shut in by purple skies. To-day, amid the shining leaves. Purple blossoms framed a shrine! And happy tho't, and tho't that grieves, Were written line on line— In frontispiece I saw the eaves And starry Jessamine. And there the porch, where mother sat In May's long evenings fair, And held my torn and battered hat. So full of blossoms rare. While I, with choice of this and that, Twined violets In her hair. Oh! keenest pain my heart doth know! Tho' May's sweet sunlight shine. That back my feet can never go To a threshold half divine! Alas! those old sweet violets blow For other bands than mine. Richlako, Mich. THE BUTLER TRIAL STRONG FEELING AGAINST THE PRISONER, AND IF HE IS^T SENTENCED TO HANG, Mol» liaw 1« Feared« f [From our Special Correspondent.} Columbia City, Ikd., May 19,1884. The 7th day and the second week of the Butler mnrder trial was commenced this morning. The court room ha^been crowded to its utmost capacity each day and evening. The attendance of the ladies has been very large, though they do not sympathize with the brutal wife-murderer. There are reports that boquets have been lavished upon the deep-dyed criminal by ladies of this city, but it is an injustice to the women of Columbia City. The defense is conducted by five able attorneys; among three of the best in the west, viz: Major Black-bum, of Cincinnati, H. J. Booth and Mr. Powell, of Columbua Sentiment is exceedingly strong against Butler, and will not die out but in creasa The jury is composed of intelligent farmers. A great deal of gambling as to the result is going on, and a large amount of money will change hands in this way. Mr. Booth presented a heavy argument to the jury last Saturday afternoon. The reading of depositions is now going on and will continue through this week and part of next. The Pierceton witnesses all bear damaging testimony and spectators from that place are wild with sentiment. It now looks that if the jury should sentence the criminal to prison, mob law will be turned loose. The best thing they can do is either to acquit or hang. In the case of acquittal the citizens will preside over the finished case. Hundreds of pages of depositions are on file and contain both favora-able and damaging testimony. The plea of insanity has strong backing, and so has the state. It will be Attempted by the defense, to show that the defendant drew the revolver on Ira Byerson, and that the deceased ran in range and received the fatal shot. This irritates the public who can hardly stand such argument TICKET MAKERS- THE MEN WHO WILL ASSIST IN NAMING THE NEXT LIST OF STATE OFFICERS. NobI« County's Delegate* to the State Convention. WISE OR OTHERWISE. BEATS BLIND TOM. Judge Lowry' Loses His Temper in a ControverBy with Wise, of Virginia. IS IT INTUITIVE INTELLIGENCE TRANS-MIHED BY HEREDITY? Let Scientists Explain. Will There be a Duel? Makes no Drunkards. The temperance people—and we should all be temperance people are probably right when ^ey say that a great many popular medicines are ba!^ on rum, and tend to induce drinking habits. Whosoever takes Parker's Tonic is safe from that danger. It is a wholesome in-vigorant, and restores the disordered functions of the stomach and liver without straining nature or perverting it Many clergymen and temperance workers have testified to this. It is as delicious to the palate as it is effective in curing disease. —Uorsemn should notice the adv. of Wm. A. Adee in another oolnmn. May 26, 1884. The 13th day of Butler's trial opened at 10 o'clock to-day. The trial is progressing slowly and weari-Last week was devoted to the hearing of written depositions and numerous witnesses. The defense work on hereditary and accidental insanity, tracing the family history back some 50 years to establish symptoms of the former, and reviewing the circumstances and results of a blow on the head to establish the latter. The defense has employed the best legal talent in the west, viz. Maj. Blackburn, Gen. Powell and H. J. Booth, all of Ohio, and J. D. Emston, of Cincinnati, and J. W. Adair, of this place. The outbreak of eloquence will take place about the 7th or 10th of June, when the heaviest argument ever listened to in this county will be delivered. Though there are volumes of testimony bearing directly on the insanity of the wife-murderer, it is hardly credited that the jury will decide in the defendant's favor. The people in this section will not permit such an outrt^e on the public. The prisoner has reclined on a chair for 12 long days, and during that time has not said more than a dozen words. The jury is compos^ of intelligent men, and it is understood they are men who detest crime. There are two things to do; one is hanging and the other the result of the 'insanity dodge." The former will be accepted by citizens, while the latter will need some consideration before submission. The courtroom is crowded daily. The average attendance is 400 persons; 150 of that number are ladies. Several expert physicians have testified for the defense on the condition of Butler's mind. The State, represented by prosecutor Sick-afoose; L. N. Royce, and J. D. Widaman, of Warsaw, is holding her own. These gentlemen puzzle tiie defense quite often and are attorneys of no small talent, X -Compare he New Era with any The republican state convention of Indiana will be held at Indianapolis, on the 23rd day of June, 1884, and we feel assured" if there is no blundering on the part of those who compose that convention, in the matter of choosing the men who are to make up the ticket, and in the make up of the platform, that success will attend the efforts of tlie party this ^ear, and a glorious victory be the result in November. It is often sneeringly said that "platforms" amount to nothing, and while this may be, and probably is true of the <iemocratic party, it will hot apply to the republican party, especially, oOndiana republicans. The platfor^tnust avow principles in harmony with the intelligent purpo^ of the people, or it will be repudiated. The day for catching votes by meaningless or evasive phrases is passed, and if We are to win this year we must show that we are terribly in earnest in the principles we lay down, as the party did in its younger days when battling with ,the slave power. The platform of Indiana republicans in 1882 had the true tone,' and any backward step by the party this year will be ^atal. Mark that, ye ticket and platform makers in this, the year of our Lord, 1884.

The latter, in a peech the other day, spoke of Bar-num's great act of buying Indiana mules. Judge Lowry went oijt of his way to refer to this, and said that if Bamum should want to buy Wise he would purchase an animal of in- ed it to her with the request that she ferior order to the mule.

A Startling Discovery. Mr. Wm. Johnson, of Huron, Dak. writes that his wife had be^n troubled with acute Bronchitis for many years, and that all remedies tried gave no permanent relief, until he procured a bottle of Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Coughs, and Cold^ which had a magical effect and pro duced a permanent cure.

That paper says: "The town of Felicity, Ohio, is ' During the debate in the lower house of congress a few days ago, on the ^nglish-Peelle contested election case. Judge Lowry «ssailed John A. Wise, of Virginia, in Bob's most vig-omns style, which raised quite a breeze for the time being. A special dispatch to the Indianapolis Journal refers to the matter as follows : Judge Lowr:', of Fort Wayne, was just now enjoying something in the in his speech very scattering and'dis- nature of a sensation. There lives cursive. He plowed over the ground in the village an aged colored couple that Mr. Converse had furrowed be- by the name of Bright With the fore; but it took him a very much aged people lives a little grand-child, longer time.

So astonish-e^^d alarmed were her grand-par-when she began to read that Uiey burst into tears, supposing her possessed of some supernatural agency. ,A few days since the wife of Postmaster Molen, being skeptical, selected a letter from a number, and hand-1 some laughter over the scene which followed. Lowry, in the meanwhile, breathed defiance, but said nothing. When the report of his words was read to the house, speaker Carlisle, amid considerable noise, ruled that he saw nothing in them that demanded any action by the house and everybody laughed. Continuing his scattered argument, Mr. Lowry again referred to Wise as a man of kitchen statesmanship and a harlequin in the halls of congress. Mr. Wise retorted that he would one pretends to account for her faculty of reading without ever having learned to do so. The postmaster Molen referred to by the Commercial-Gazette is a cousin of our townsman, J. P. Molen, of the firm of Huston & Molen. Mr. J. P. Molen was a resident of Felicity for years, and recollects the grandparents of the child, but, of course, does not know the child, itself, having been away from there for a number of years. If true the circumstance is a strange one, as but few people waive his privilege as a member and have ever been given such rare gifts, call for a personal explanation from Lowry. The latter thus has no incipient affair on hand with a Virginian who las fou^t several duels. There is no thou^t, however, that anything more serious than a scathing reply from Wise to-morrow will follow. Once more did Lowry refer to Wise m connection with "egg-sucking dogs," a phrase Wise had also used in debate a few days ago. In his peroration he referred to the "great fraud of 1876," and to Tildenas "the uncrowned king of the democratic party." He predict..d amid great republican laughter and democratic applause, that the ticket of Tilden and Hendricks could caj^ the country this year by 500,000 majority. G^eral Browne said that Mr. Lowry meant that they would be defeated by that majority. —A horse thief got away from a Michigan sheriff near :Kendallville, while the latter was asleep in the cars, and at Kendallville the sheriff was in the act of sending telegrams to different points] when he saw his man a short distance away and immediately gave chase.
