The greatest religious debate, like the recent snow, has come and gone,
Leaving behind a great deal of mud and slush.
Public opinion as to the result of the debate is largely in favor of
Of the Latter Day Saints, although it is claimed by many that Blalcok, of
Disciples of Christ, was the wittier of the two speakers while Williams
Displayed the better oratorical ability. The general opinion also seems to
Be that the debate has resulted in more than good to the cause of religion,
And the questions discussed are still unsettled.

Dr. H. W. Taylor, whose arrest in Chicago and return to Burlington was
Noted in last weeks Beacon, is giving the people of Burlington no end to
The trouble and they now wish they had left the gay doctor in Chicago.
When arrested he complained of not feeling well, and soon after being
Taken to Burlington he was taken down with small pox. All the prisoners
In the jail and a number of police officers and others had been exposed
Before the true nature of the disease was discovered. Taylor has been
To an isolated part of the town and at last reports was getting along as
As to be expected. If the Tabor people who were so anxious to get hold of
Last week are still desirous of having him return, we have no doubt but that
The people of Burlington would gladly surrender him.

Upon a description furnished by Marshal Talbott of Malvern. It is claimed

A dispatch to the Daily Capital says S.S. Hawker, a well known and prominent
Of Hastings, Iowa, dropped dead Saturday morning as he arose from the
Table at his home. Mr. Hawker was in Malvern a few days ago attending the
Monthly meeting of Milton Summers post, of which he was an active member.
Far as learned the deceased appeared to be in his usual health up to the
very time of
His death, so that his demise was a great surprise to his friends and
Throughout the community. Mr. Hawker was of a jovial, light-hearted
And greatly enjoyed getting with his old comrades and recounting the
And mirth-provoking scenes of the "late unpleasantness." The post at
Lost three or four members during the past year, which is a sadly rapid
The ranks of brave boys who passed through the leaden hail of many battles.
To their ashes, and all honor to living comrades.

The Glenwood court house is getting to be quite modern in its conveniences.
Electric lights were recently ordered in by Judge Green and now, says the
Opinion, "a system of call bells is being put in the court house, bringing
Auditor's office into communication with all the other officers in the
Since the telephone has been in Mr. Kinney's room he has spent a goodly
Portion of his time as an errand boy calling different parties to the phone,

The town numbered.

James Boyd, of Rawles township, a notice of whose public sale is given
Elsewhere, informs us that he is thinking of seriously of removing to town.
When we say town we mean North Tabor of course, as it is impossible to
Get a Mills county man to move over the line. Mr. Boyd recently took a
Trip to Missouri, but did not like that country well enough to move there.
We hope he will succeed in finding a desirable property in North Tabor.
There seems to be considerable discussion of late regarding the possibility
Or probability of annexing the incorporated town of Tabor to Mills county.
It will be remembered that ten years ago an effort was made to annex that
Portion of the town known as North Tabor to the incorporated town which
Failed. Later an effort was made to have Iowa legislature pass a special
Law covering the case, which also failed. Now the concensus of opinion
Seems to be favorable to the plan of annexation to Mills county. However,
There seems to be more talk than anything else just at present.
