Farewell my darling little Lon,
Why shed so many tears for yon?
Thy joys are richer far than mine,
For pure celestial joys are thine.

Butler on Sunday lust to bid a parting
parewell to friends and relatives who
were expecting to leave for a distant
land. At the arrival of the train so
many were present that there was
searcely standing room upon the plat

large numder of anxious friends; to
some there was a deep sadneSB of heart,
but generally speaking the occasion
passed off quite lively and pleasant,
with many words of kindness to those
so soon to be absent, and hearts fill, of
affection. Among those who left for
an Eastern portion of Texan, were
Mrs. J. W. I.ipsey and two children,
and Mr. J. L. Wallace, of Butler;
