Darby's pastorato of two years dura
tion of tho First Methodist church In
this city, during which timo ho has
mado many warm friends horo, who
aro trying to Induco tho reverend gen
tleman to cast his lot with us for an
other year. Mr. Darby is ono of tho
kind of ministers of whom a congrega
tion or a community novcr gots tired,
and as n minister has few exceptions.
Not only is ho a minister of tho gospel
but an oxcollont lecturer on most nny
subject. Ho has made mnnv lectures
to tho various A. O. U. W. Lodges of
this vicinity, whloh wero always very
enthusiastically recolvod and highly
endorsed by tho order. To say tho
least Mr. Darby Is li practical, up.tn
date speaker, and wo believe ho eould
ovonmako a political speech that would
puttho avorngo campaign speaker to
rout. Such a man Is a desirable ad
dltlon to anv community. Mr. Darby
leaves noxt Tuesday to attend the con
ference at Fairbury and it is tnbe
hoped that ho will again bo assigned to
the pastorate of the First Methodist
church of this city.

Tho numerous fakirs who havo made

betweon 860 and 8100 for each appear
anco they mado on tho streets and tbo
city got tho paltry sum of a coupio of
aonars out oi mem tor eacn aaya li
cense, wo uon't bellovo that any
amount of licence monoy can bo charg
ed which would mako the business of
these follows legitimate as against our
own business men who maintain their
places of business, hiro clorks and pay
taxes to koop up our city. Wo do bo
lievo that an ordinance could bo passod
naming a largo enough liconso to keep
theso fellows from operating at all. If
it is right and according to law to
chargo these fellows two dollars per
day it is right to charge them 825 per
day, or a sum sufficient to mako them
quit tho town without operating. Tho
town of Boavor City makes follows of
this chss put up 825 por day and assess
es a liconso of 850 per day on a circus
and it would bo well for our ouncil to
do tho samo thing.
