Illness of Judge Cox.
From a .rivate letter received in this city
from E St. Julien Cox, of the Ninth judicial
district, the GLOBE ascertains that the judge
has been so seriously sick as to be confined
to his bed at his home in St. Peter. For
fifteen days and nights Judge Cox has
scarcely slept, notwithstanding free admin
istration by his physicians of opiates. The
orig in of the judge's affliction is traced to
an injury received about a month ago, while
at work in his garden, upon which an abscess
followed, supervened by nervous prostration,
accompanied by neuralgia in the hea d. Mr
Co x, however, is so far recovered, he thinks,
as to expect to be able to resume his official
duti es and general corresponden ce in about
ten days. Meanwhile the re is little doubt
but that the judge, as a point of fact an d,
perhaps, as a conclusion of law, has decided
that gardening is an expensive amusement
for an amateur.

On inquiry yesterday at St. Joseph's hospital,
it was ascertained that Ed C. Canterbury, tb
unfortunate sufferer from Wadena county, was
wonderfully improved. sleeps better, looks
brighter, feels less pain, and is altogether in an
excellent state, considering his untoward afflic
tion. For this he may thank the skill of Dr.
Murphy, the attending physician, and the no
less Important and expert nursing of the good
sister's of St. Joseph's.
At the inquest on the body of Smith,
whom the jury say was mnrdered, it was
proven that some on had passed the body and
drawn it from the center of the road, where it

upon the time when Smi th met with his death?
It is said he left the Sixth ward at 7:15, and

Said the Pioneer Press yesteday in its report
of the Melrose avenue fire: "One steamer, No.
3. was placed on Pine street, near the Madi3on
school building, while the other, No. 2, was
located a considerable distance further up Rice
street. No. 3 played into No. 2." All of which
is beautiful as a piece of fire engineering,
and perfectly true, with the trifling exceptions
that the Madison school building is on Martin
street, as every school boy knows that No 2
engine never left its house on Thursday night
for the fire in question and that No. 3 played
from the corner of St. Peter and Martin streets,
a block away from Rice. Of such is the "beat

leading first-class bands in the East, and his
skill in that capacity is attested by the fact
that he secured the drum major's first medal at

Got His Clothes but Tuues His Harp in
A far back as April Gth, Wm. Keihnart
came from the upper ward of St Paul at the
Falls of St Anthony, and deposited for puri
fication certain of his habilamenta at
the dyeing and laundry esta b
lishment of David Jamieson.
The bill for the operation amounted to
$3.25, but William was impecunious, and
yet wanted hi3 clothes. Forthwith he sends
a messenger to Jamieson, with a note asking
for the garments, and stating the bill would
be settled for on the following Monday. J?ut
William did not append his own name to tbe
message, and, instead of that little formality,
flourished the name of Mrs Pottgieser.

How the Pound master Sttirted With Fifteen
Cows and Landed Three in the Pound.
Those who thi nk officer Mitchell, detail ed
for ponndmaster's dut y, has a Binecnre,
should have witness ed a scene yesterday
evening, on lower Third street, near the
stock yards. Mitchell, with his assistant,
was driving some fifteen captured cow3 and
calves for the pound,when a begrimed faced,
shock-headed youngster cried out, with a
strong Milesian accent, "Mother, look out
here's the kehow ketcher, an' he's our
Jenny." Answering to th is summons, out
stepped a bare footed, bare armed, red top
ped lady, with a broom handle in
her hand, which she passed with
rapid and graceful genuflections around her
handsome head and with a bound she was in
the center of the herd, then commenced the
fu n. The cows scattered to the fo ur poin ts
of the compass. Mitchell ran frantically
down one street and another, his aasist

come upon either si de of an unfortunate
bovine and begin to belabor her then seeing
in the distance some retreating captiv es
