From the Benton Tribune, April 5. The time for paying taxes expires on the 18th inst. DIED.-In Bolivar Tp., Saturday, April 2, 1870, of Chronic Rhuematism, George A. Davis, age about 27 years. DOGGEREL.-There is a class of individuals, (taken in a dog-god sense), that attends the churches in this place which it would be well to show more marked attention to in the way of seating them when they come in. We refer to our neighbor's canines. Why the dog are allowed no privileges in the church, when the take it into their heads to attend church, we cannot tell. If their maters permit their coming certainly there must be a design. Train your pup the way he should go, and when he becomes a dog he will not depart from it, as a maxim seems to be gaining favor, and it may not be long before they will understand perfectly well the ten commandments, recite the catechism, and stop their abominable whining and scratching in the house of God during divine service. Some people seem to hold to the idea that a dog has an immortal soul to save, and in keeping with this exploded foggyism permit their dogs to attend them to church. In conclusion we would say, dogs have the kindness to stay at home after this, and watch the chickens out of your masters garden. By so doing you will confer a favor all around.
