Ono-Imlf n. century uro, In Die beautiful and most picturesque par-t'of tho "ItlKhbuuls of Kontlrtnil," wbero tlio "bonny hrntlicr" blooms, a hiipy couple embarked on the vnyngR of matrimonial lite. This couple Wart Mr. and Mrs. Anisua Smith. On the 2!U)i of May, 1001, they celebrated their fUtlcth anniversary at Starruccit, Vn. A rhatiKc In tho programme was necessary on account "f tho heavy inllliiB rain, which continued through out the entire day. The tent upon tho lawn, which had been elected for the serving of refreshments, had to h abandoned, but nevertheless the happy couple, surrounded by family and friends, caused sunshine to well tip within, which defied tho storm without. AlthoiiRh tho Invitations stated expressly "No presents," this rule was Ignored by many, and the p Ms from Mr. Smith's former partners In the acid business, and others, were numerous and beautiful, 'The decora t Ions also were profuse mitl pleasing. Within the folding doors i-eparatliig the dining room and parlor were the dates In gold IS.'il-IJifll, amid graceful folds of yellow and white drapery, surrounded by polteil ferns and bouquets of Marc-ihal Nlel roses. The tables were decorated with smlla.v. carnations and yellow roses. About ii p. in. these tables, which were both pleasing to the eye and palate, laden with tho rich bounties supplied by a kind Providence, were gracefully presided over by the several daughters of the happy bride and groom, each of them duessed In white and wearing a dainty spray of lilies of the valley in her hair, and wearing her blandest and sweetest Pintle. Nine grandchildren were present, who added to the joy and festivity of the occasion. Among the many pleasing features of Hie event, one thing in particular was noticeable, a cablegram from Scotland, extending congratulations from friends. Mow the memories ot tile happy bridal couple must, hav-rt tinned to the days of ".vuld l.ang Syne," which Is prettily described in a short poem, which was expressly written for them: "dust .1 'wee bit' spiny of heather Uioni Hip downs across t Iio sea, Hill 'twa dearer than Hip frrshest, I .most flowers bloom to tne -Kit lis dried ami ilosc pressed branches nl il.s faded purple hue Takes me biek to scenes of cirlboocl, I'.ir lip, nml the tea's deep blue. .lut a line inodesl coltnc;o, l.ranl by .1 sweol lose xioe H11I 'twas df.irrr :i castle, 1'or 'twas Aiihim' home and mine.

Willyms, the Sacristan of the Homitn Cathollo church of St, Benedict the Moor, died lately In New York, The sacristan was known throughout tho United States for his learning and literary attainments. It was tho great object of fW life to become a priest, His father was a slave and lived on a plantation at Mount Vernon, adjoining tho home of General Washington. Voiing Willyms was in Washington lor a few years, and then, through the Influences of friends who were impressed by tho aptitude which he showed in study, was bent to Home, lie was about 20 years old, In IS.'G. when he arrived at Homo. He studied in tho propaganda for several years. Mr. Willyms was In tho same class with Archbishop Corrlgan. When the latter visited the church of St. Bene-diet the Moor, ho always met the sacristan and talked to him In Italian of the days in Home. Mr. Willyms was in Homo In tho days of Pope Plus IX. Ho was known as "The Pope's Ulttle Black." The outbreak of tho civil war made It Impossible for him to return to this country as a priest, llu was never ordained.

The Journals devoted to tho Interests of the negro race In this country contained many contributions from his pen. THE YOUNGER BROTHERS' RAIDS Crimes of the Outlaws Whom Minnesota la About to Set Free The Ground on Which Petitions for Clemency, to These Notorious Criminals Have Been Made and Listened to. St. Paul dispatch of recent ilato says: Tho exploits of the Younger brothers and Frank and Jessie James and their dating raids upon towns and railroad trains which extended over a period of twenty years, art recalled because the legislature of Minnesota has decided to give Bob and Colo Younger their fivodoni. It Is nearly twenty-six years since that memorable raid upon the Bank of Xorthtleldrf Minn., when tho united forces of the James ami Younger gangs were engaged in battle for six days anil the outlays were almost wiped out. There were six Younger brothers, one of whom died In boyhood. They were tho son.') of Col. Henry AV. Younger, a Southern man who moved to Cass county, Mo., in 1S:!0. The live boys who lived to attain their majority were Hlcbard, Thomas, Coleman, Hob-ert, Kwlntf and John Younger. During tlio war they, like the two .Tamos brothers, were irregular, or guerilla troops, who stole as often from one side as the othe. After the war they became bandits. The first robbery of the kind with which the Youngers were later idon-tiilqd was that of the Continental) Hank of IJborty, Mo., on Feb. 14, 1S6G. when $70,000 was secured. The Youngers took 1:0 part In this exploit. The robbers followed the same tactics which were employed af terward tinio and again and which. always succeeded until the North-Held robbery. The party, well mounted and heavily armed, rode into town, liring and yelling In the streols and terrorized the ! citizens, while two of the gang dis mounted and with cocked revolvers forced the cashier to hand over the bank's funds. Tho Younger boys were first known to be with tho James brothers in the bank robbery at Columbia, Ky. The cashier, refusing to give up the money, was killed. The scene of tlio next raid was in Iowa. At Corydon, la., they succeeded in robing a. bank of $10,000. On May 27. 1S7."!, the St. Gen-ovivo Bank was robbed of $;if!,000. Tn 1S70 they began to rob railway trains. The Chicago, Hoelc Tsland and Pacillc .suffered llrst east of Council Bluffs. Xext the cash box of the Kansas City Fair Association was robbed of Its day's receipts. This was followed by tho holding up of tho Malvern and Hot .Springs stages in January, 1871. Then tlio band attempted another train robbery at Gad's Hill, on the Iron Mountain Hallway. The Youngers and the Jameses then scperated for a while, as heavy re-wards wore offered for their arrest. Many attempts were made to capture them. Tn one of them John Younger was killed. At times tho detectives were hunters, and then again they would bo hunted. In December, 1$i", two parties were organized for robbery. One, consisting of Jessie James, Bob Younger and James Younger, stopped a train at Muncie, Mo., and robbed tlio express safe of $5r,0iia. Another party, consisting of Cole Younger, Frank James and tho Millers, robbed a bank at Corinth, Miss. Later, tho James brothers, the three Youngers, Charles Pitts and Clell Miller robbed a Missouri Pacific train at otkrvllle, 'Mo., seeming $17,-fiCii. In lfc7 they decided to rob the bank at Northlleld, Minn., on Sept. 7. The band consisted of Bob, Cole and James Younger, Bill Caldwell, Clem Miller, Frank and Jessie James and Charley Pitts. They rode directly to tho bank, where Frank and Jessie James tnd Colo Younger dismounted and entered. Once inside they ordered J. P. Haywood, the cashier, to open the safe or die. He refused and was shot. AVIille this was going on there was n wild sceno In front of tho bank. A. W. Wheeler, who occupied a second-story room opposite, got a rlllo and shot Charles Pitts and Hill Chadwell. Then other citizens began llrhig. Tho robbers lied and woro pursued for six days by hundreds of men. Finally, tho bandits scperated. Cole, Hob and Jim Younger and Clell Miller kupt to. gelher. The James boys escaped after being repeatedly wounded and suffering untold hadships. On Sep. 2t tho four others were surrounded In tho swamps of tho AVoton-wan Hirer nearly famished nud exhausted, Miller was killed and tho three Ynungors were all wounded he-foro they surrendered. The Youngers were arraigned In court early in October at Falrhault, where being advised that they could not be sentenced to death If they pleaded guilty they did so. and woro sentenced to penal servitude at Stillwater for their natural lives, Jim Younger died in confinement. For a number of year past the friends of the Imprisoned men have Fought their pardon. Petitions signed by every member at tho legislature of Missouri and by men of jut tonal reputation liavd been presorted 1 1 tho Governor and Stale Legislature. Two years ago th? State Senate passed a bill granting, them a parole, and it would have passed in tlio House had not the friends of the dead cashier r.totosted against tlio clemency. There appears to be a sentiment In Minnesota favoring tho pardon of tho men. It -was never established that any of tho Younger brothers was responsl-ble for the death of any of the victims ot thn Northlleld raid. They are old men now and over since their Incarceration they have been model prisoner?, , THE MARKETS. Wall 8trt RstIbw.
