Jt is reported upon good authority
that two men were killed at Collins, the
new town on the B & M. at the Chey
enne crossing, on last Sunday. The par
ticulars have not been learned but our
informant ttates tliat two "toughs"
filled themselves with "booze" and then
took to shooting, using each other for
targets. This becoming more monoto
nous than effectual they commenced
firing into the crowd of bystanders that
Imd by this time gathered, whereupon
one of the aforesaid spectators shot both
of them and death was the final result.
The men had wounded each other sever
al times during the shooting just pri
or to their death.

WHAT CHILDREN MAY DO.
"Do you really believe that it is of any
use whatever having children join your
temperance society?" was asked some
time ago. "Indeed, I do," replied a wor
thy minister of the Gospel; "I liave had
more parents reclaimed from intemper
ance and added to my church through
the zeal of these little ones than from
any other agency." We liave known of
parents becoming earnest devoted Chris
tians, all through the efforts of their lit
tle ones. Surely, "a little child shall
lead them." Temperance Banner.
FOR FLORRY'S SAKE.
"Don't go out to-night, dear husband,
please," beggod Mrs. Morely, as her hus
band rose and opened the door.
Mr. Morely had lately been introduced
to some frienda;vlio, his wife felt sure,
were doing h.l'no good. Evening after
evening he siieiJt with them, and seemed
to care 1 ess and less for the society of
his wife and child. Mrs. Morely also
feared he was getting to like the drink.
Sometimes he came home excited and
unlike himself, and she longed to save
him before it was too late.
Mr. Morely stood with his hand on the
handle of the door, as he said half impa
tiently, "Why should I not go? I can
not stay in to-night."
"Oh, but do," she urged laying her
hand lightly on his shoulder; "do stay in
to-night for Florry's sake."
Florry was Mr. and Mrs. Morely's only
child and her father was devotedly fond
of her; so, after a moment's hesitation he
turned round and sat down again. His
wife's face brightened, and she poked up
the fire to a blaze and chatted away
cheerfully to him.
Then he asked, "You said, 'for Florry's
sake;' what did you mean?"
"Have you forgotten that to-morrow
is Florry's birthday? I am preparing an
album for her, and I want you to help
me finish it; she will value it much more
if there is some of your work' in it. .
Mr. Morely liad great taste, and the
album rapidly improved under his hands.
His wife continually talked of their
child, and her devotion to her father, and
of their own responsibility as parents,
till new thoughts came into the father's
"I will give Florry a treat to-morrow,"
he said at last, "I will come home
early to tea, and spend the whole even
ing with her."
And so he did; and from that time he
broke away from his evil acquaintances,
and greatly through the influence of his
wife and Florry, he became a Christian
man, and lived a happy and useful life.
