Abbott, of St. Louis, and Miss Annette Blair, of this city, were united in marriage yesterday afternoon at the residence of the bride's parents, corner of Fifteenth and Henry streets. The • service took place at 6 o'clock, Rev. L. A. Abbott, D. D., father of the goom, officiating. A select number of friends from homes in this city, Upper Alton, St. Louis, Godfrey, Springfield and Minneapolis were present to witness the ceremony and par- the cheer of the happy occasion. The bride is the daughter of Mr. John L. and Mrs. Sarah E. Blair, and is well known by all, having long been held in loving esteem by a large circle of friends. Mr. Abbott, the groom, is a graduate of Brown University, Providence, K. I. and was formerly a Pro* fessor at Shurtleff College and had also been its efficient Treasurer for several years. He is a successful attorney at law in St. Louis. The happy pair left after the hour for refreshments ;was over, for St. Louis, where they have established their homo at 41U Page avenue. The blessings and hopes of their numerous friends will follow them through life. THE CESTRiL MISSOURI. There is no longer any doubt of the early construction of the Central Missouri. Preparations are in progress five miles above St. Charles to commence operations, and in a few days a large force of men will be put to work grading westward. Beginning May 1, the work will be rapidly pushed,hud though it is too early to define the point expected to bii attained by the close of the season, it may be safely stated that no time will be lost in reaching Kansas City. The contraet is let to the United Stales Railway Improvement Co., and the" road will be broad guage. West of the Missouri river the Kansas Short Line route will be adopted, but east of that river the consolidated line.will be chosen. It is claimed that the company is on the best financial footing and that the road will be a first class one in every respect. The Eastern Directors were not willing to delay the construction any longer, but upon pressure from the St. Louis men agreed to defer the construction to Alton until it should be proven beyond a doubt that this city does not want the terminals asked for in the Merchants' bill— Qlbbe Democrat. Taking the ' Globe Democrat's own reasoning and it is plain that the new road must come to Alton according to the original plan and according to the wishes of the Eastern directors. Even supposing the new terminal bill pro- pesed m St. Louis is successful, the directors of the Central Missouri cannot wait five or six years for the building of the Merchant's Bridge at St. Louis. Building: Association. There will be a meeting of the Alton Building and Loan Association, Friday evening, April 22, at 7:30 o'clock. Money to loan. L. PFEIFFENBERGER, Pros. JOHN F. MoGmms, 8eo\ it COHONBH'S' VERDICT.— We learn from Capt. 8. S. Foster that, Coroner Moiling held an inquest Tuesday evening at Ed wardsville on the body of Henry Damme, who hung himself in the county jail, as already reported in the TELEGRAPH. The jury was constituted as follows; Foreman, H. E. Baylo, Dr. Zaoconi, T. M. McCune, Prof. MoAdams, iMuKiuley Ward, J. Riley. The verdict was death by suicide. WKLCOMB THE VETERANS—Reports from all ibis portion of the State Indicate that the attendance here on the occasion of the G. A, R. reunion, July 4th and 6th, will bo very large.

Just what Is meant by the term "being trained for motherhood," or why this training should be designated as "one of the two grent channels of expenditure of physiological force," I find myself tumble to understand. But It may be asserted, that any training which exhausts without more than correspondingly strengthening a part, no matter where applied or for what purpose, should straightway be condemned. The "competition" and tho "terrible strain" theories scorn to me to have but little foundation. In my university life I saw nothing to confirm them. The work wns pleasant and Inspiring, and I anvsurb I can safely say that for the most part we enjoyed it. We did not troublis ourselves about tho relative weight of our brains, and, as in the district school or the high-school, so here, it mattered llttlo whether it was Jane or John who stood best;, and it was quite as likely to,bo Jane as John. As I.recall tho animated faces, the healthy bloom, the high spirits of tho young women, I fail to find any ground for the assumption that their work was in any sense donu at the expense of their vitality. On the contrary, I know that in many cases there was decided improvement in health from the beginning to the end of the course. All this much-talked of "physiological expenditure" is a myth. The intellect is quickened and strengthened by proper use, not at the expense of any other organ, but in and of itself. It is with this as with the muscles: strength comes with use. The fault has'lain, not in the training of one set of organs, but hi the neglect of others. Tho balance of health has thus been lost, and all parts have suffered in unison. To correct this, to establish a harmonious development of mind and body, is what true higher education aims to accomplish; and in doing this it is Striking at the very root of woman's disabilities. . ; Seeing daily, as I do, young, women in college in far better health than young women in society, or living in pampered idleness at home; seeing them healthier as seniors than they were as freshmen; knowing that my records tell me that they average a smaller number of excuses because of illness than do those of the men's colleges with •which I am able to compare data, and knowing from statistical evidence that woman college graduates enjoy a sum total of twenty per cent better health than the average woman, how can I conclude otherwise than that college- work, per se, is not injurious to health, nor incompatible with the .best good of the sex and the race?— Dr. Lucy M. Hall, in Popular Science Monthly. Indians Overawe a Sheriff's Posse. Last fall a young buck broke into the postofflcE at Ashland, about ninety miles south of Miles City, and had not been arrested, although complaint was made, until last week, 'when the warrant was placed in the hands of a deputy sheriff, whom tho United States marshal had commissioned to make the arrest. Proceeding to the agency, the deputy and an assistant identified their man, arrested him, and set out for Miles City. When about fifty miles from the agency a band of Choydones rode furiously up and with guns drawn and threatening gestures forced the deputy to give up the prisoner. Tho baud of Cheyonnes numbered about twenty and meant mischief. The action of the officers in turning "their man loose without bloodshed is a subject of commendation, as one Indian killed might have resulted in a wholesale slaughter of white settlers who are distributed through that locality, near the Upper Tongue River valley.— New York Times. A Woman Who HUB AVoii Her Way. Miss Mary Booth is said to be going abroad for rest, and one of the papers, in commenting upon it. calls her "the septuagenarian editor of Harper's Fasli~ ion Weekly." Miss Booth is no longer young, but I doubt if she is 60, and she is well preserved of her ago, retains her thick, gray hair, strong, sound teeth, and her erect figure. Every morning early, that is early for a journalist—say 10 o'clock or thereabouts—she arrives at tho little don where her work is done In the Franklin Square Building, mid is steadilj' at her desk. until 4. Shu scums to Imvo no assistants. For twenty-five years she has been tho "translator in ordinary" for the Harpers, mid for twelve years the editor of the JJazur. — Albany Journal. Roscoo Conkling 'has a passion for costly colored handkerchiefs. He likes tho brightest colors. The Arabs claim that Eve was created twenty-two years before Adam was, and that Aduin was created simply because she was lonesome for some one to talk to. MARRIED.
