Sorrowful Parting from Frieiida.
The Western Country. Person
Oc.dkv, Dec lOlh. 1870.
Editor Soyuxm., Duir !sir: Hav
ing promised my many friends on
leaving home, that 1 would let them
know from time to time how I was
getting along, I can think of no way
half so good as through your col
umns i. e., presided you agree with
me. Brother Lute, of course, will
tell you of our trip up to the time he
left me at Cheyenne. I always hate
to part with friciids, but never did I
leave home and friends under such
cirumstances as now ; being very
weak, it was doubtful iu the minds
of many if I could stand the trip,
while on the other hand should I
improve and find a climate adapted
to my case, I was to locate and nev
er return; well, such circumstances
made it a hard step for me to lake,
but I am started, and hope to find
the relief sought for. I felt quite
well on leaving Cheyenne, but the
long snow sheds and tunnels on the
way over here were bad for me, and
I find myself worse than when 1
left home. The first shed we passed
through I really thought I would
smother before reaching 1 lie end.
The road is very much up grade, and
the engine was just more than throw
ing fire and smoke which, with the
dust from the road-bed, made it very
disagreeable. I soon got to know
when we were Hearing one, and
would at once place a wet towel
over my mouth, which would pre
vent me from inhaling the coal dust
and smole At Kvan.-ton, I met our
friend W. B. Doddridge, Div. Supt.
IT. P. R. R., and accepting his invi
tation, I remained with him one day
and had a nice visit. Mr. D. is the
same sociable fellow he always was;
promotion does not have the effect
to make him forget friends and ac
quaintances. From Evanston to this
point the scenery along the IT. P. is
the finest; most wonderful of all
nature's doing is flic Devil's Slide.
Having called the attention of some
passengers from the cast to this
wonder, one of them at once declar
ed that it was not the work ol nature
hut had been built by human beings
"the absurd idea." On reaching this
place the first acquaintances 1 met
were Mr. Martin and Mr. Hale of
Madison. They arc both at the Hot
Springs doctoring for rheumatism.
The springs aic nine miles from here
reached by both the C. P. and Utah
Northern R. R.
The weather has been very bad
ever since I came here, either snow
or rain, and I have not been able to
go out much. I shall spend a few
days at the Spring", and the same
time at Salt Lake city, and then 'ho"
for the west ! Until" then adieu.
The new Congregational Church
was dedicated last Sabbath, under
very favorable auspices. Notwith
standing the cold weather a large
congregation assembled mnrniu"
and evening. The dedicatory ser
vices were held iu the moiuiug.
Rev. E. B. Fairfield, I). D., of the
State University, preached the ser
mon, from Romans, i chapter, xvi
verse, and Rev. II. N. Gates, Home
Missionary Supt. for Nebraka,made
the dedicatory prayer. Other part.s
were assigned to different resident
ministers. The financial statement
was made by J. A. Reed, who in
formed tho congregation to their
evident satisfaction, that the build
ing, as thus far completed, is fiie
from debt. The choir discoursed
very excellent music under the lead
ership of Win. F.iweII. The build
ing is not yet finished ; some more
work is to be done on tho outside,
making the exterior more attractive.
And within there are live additional
rooms to be completed, in which
additional doors ami windows are
to be placed. When theae rooms
are finished the number of sitting;,
will be increased very much. One
room iu the front of the building is
to be used for a public library and
reading room, and it is hoped this
will be completed at once. The
young people purchased the chande
lier; the ladies the carpets, chairs,
stoves and hanging lamps; and the
children the book-rest on the pulpit.
The Society has now excellent ac
commodations, and undoubtcillv
will prosper. The enterprise, while
not a very expensive one, has never
theless taxed the Society to (he
utmost, but has been cheerfully
borne by those contributing. We
hopo much good will result to the
community from their efforts.
Dr. Joseph S. LongJiore, an
eminent physician of Philadelphia,
Prof, of Obstetrics in the Penn Med
ical University, author of min
valuable medical works, also- the
Centennial Literary Bell, and found
er of the first Medical College ex
pressly for women in the United
Stales, died on the. '3th insf. He was
u brother to S. C. Longshore of this
city, Anna M. L. Potts, the lecturer,
and Elizabeth Burgess of Genoa. He
was a noted temperance lecturer, and
a warm-hearted humanitarian.
The Lincoln Journal of Friday
last has this item : Count Guiding,
chief engineer of the A. & N. and L.
& N. W., arrived from Atchison re
cently. He says the L. & N. W.
track will be laid to the Platte
river about the 2:3th of January, and
a connection will be' made with the
U. P. at Columbus, during April '80.
It would be difficult, indeed, to
excel the entertainment given by the
Kendalls Mondaj evening, iu Faust
aud Maigueiite. The live acts of
the play were as many impressive
sermons on pleasure, vice, ambition,
courage, honor, temptation. Goethe,
greatest after Shakspeare, seems to
have woven his poem from the very
fibres of the human soul. Personi
fying all evil in Mephistophcles, who
appears iu every phase of his well
known character as wily tempter,
accuser of souls, sorcerer, scoffer at
holy thoughts and actions, and the
ever-present and inveterate spirit of
opposition to good, he gives him
that weird interest which attaches
to the historical Satan, every human
soul recognizing the character as a
very close acquaintance. Mr. Ken
dall's rendition of it is most excel
lent in every feature, and long will
be remembered the hollow, mocking,
soulless "ha! ha! ha!" with which
he greeted each triumph over hu
man souls the victims of his wiles.
No less perfect was Julia Kendall aB
Marguerite, picturing, iu very life,
the love and the longing of the maid,
and the despair and torture of the
erring. lie who sees not in the play
a profound study of human life, and
a wonderful portrayal of its inner
actions, reads the poem or hears the
actors to little purpose. We cannot
close without commending the entire
company for the excellence of their
work, and the orchestra .and brass
baud for the rare richness of their

connection with the tank is a heater
down on the ground, enclosed in
one part of a bath room by which
hot water can be conveved to the
tank and also to the rooms of the
hotel. All a guest has to do is to
step io the wash stand and turn a
spiggot and obtain his warm water
for a pleasant wash, or step into the
bath-room and take his warm or cold
bath as if may suit his pleasure.
And although the water tank is
about fifteen or twenty feet high and
without any protection, yet during

Alfred Woods has gone west to
grow up with the country and some
one else has gone east for his health,
but you will still find "Fatly" Woods
at his old stand on Olive street,
where, with the assistance of Mr.
Castle, nn experienced workman
from Omaha, he is prepared to wait
upon his many old patrons and as
many no v. ones as see fit to patronize
him. It is his aim to run as near a
first-class place a possible. Here
you will find everything kept neat
aud clean, plenty of clean towels,
sharp razors and plenty of reading
