Ax UNTLEASANT task has been set down for
the United States marshal , at St. Louis , Miss
Phoebe W. Couzzius , the daughter and suc
cessor in ofllco of the late marshal , J. E. D.
Couzins. While Marshal Couzins was con-
lined to his bed , unable to attend to business ,
his able and loving daughter , Miss Phuebo ,
attended to it for him. The late marshal was
n niember of Missouri ledge , No. 11 , of the
Independent Order of Odd-Fellows and also
of the Odd-Fellows' Mutual Aid association.
The last named body is comixiscd solely of
members of the I. O. O. F. , but is a separate
incorporated body. The bcncilt derived from
membership is $1,000 , to bo paid the family
ut the death of a member. During Marshal
Couzin's illness a member from each body
called regularly each week , jiaid the weekly
benefits and made their rejwrts. It
was on one of these visits that the visitor In
formed Miss Phoebe Couzins of dues accruing
in both societies. She instructed him to re
tain an amount suflleicnt to pay both dues ,
which ho did. The young man departed and
the matter passed out of Miss Couzius' mind ,
until after the death of her father , when shu
received notice that ho had been suspended
from the Mutual Aid association for nonpayment
ment of dues. Inquiry brought out the fact
that the young mun did not fulfill his promise
of paying the dues und the Mutial Aid asso-
i-iationnow holdstothOBUsncusion. Thoques
tion of payment is now in debate and there is
Rome possibility of its being paid without re
course to measures which Miss Couzins says
BUO would dislike very much to take against
the association. J , E. U. Couzins was a char
ter member of the Missonrl ledge I. O. O. F. ,
organized la St. Louis in 1345. Ho was alsc
one of the organizers of the Mutual Aid asso
ciation , and never , as long as ho was a mem
ber , did he fall behind hi his dues.
