It may be that A. J. Carle is not tho

THE SOKRUW UF A SOILED DOVE.
Lucy Crane, one of Grace Winsor'i
soiled doves, raised a great coinmntiou yes
terday in aud in tho vicinity of the castle.
Lucy it an uilectionate lady, as tender
hearted as a pigeon, and she clines to on
mau, whom she calls her lover. Yesterday
sho received tho tad intolliirenco of her lov-
er's death. Did Lucy ween? DidsboDtiton
weeds and allow grief to pray upon her
vorgin hoartV "On the contrav ouite the
reyorte," ut tho cood Cuntlaln Buntbv wai
in tbo habit of saying. She did what any
true woman, or genuine sensibilities would
have done undor similar circumstances.
In short, she got drunk verv drunk.
Drunkenness is mourning. After this
mournful duty had been performed,
Lucy, Impelled by sorrow, procured a
halchot, and endeavored to tearfully strike
her sister doves on the head, all for the
love of her dead lovor. But thoy all ro-
treated from the table at which they had
bcn dining, Tho weeping Lucy
then proceeded to smash all
the dishes visible, to overturn tho table
and to dash out tho window panes with
hor flit. Shu struct one blow to much,

TUN J'OWliK OF MUSIC.
A STKANGK SUENK ON WASH
AS A DANCING TUNK,
When we nrst read browning's "Fled
1'ipvr' we were charmed by what we con
sidered thu exaggerations of the poet who
made the music of the pipe accomplish
such wonderful results, and, until yester
day, wu disbelieved the story that Or
pheus with hit harp had made stones give
signs Ufa. But wa Lav bean con
vinced that music is all powerful.
Yesterday afternoon about & o'clock a
man of ttraugo appearance walked into
Carle' livery stable. Without saying a
word to the proprietor, taking up a violin
he found lying on a bench In tba office, he
drew tho bow across the string! two or
three times, striking suddenly into the
tune of the "Arkansas Traveler," which
he played in an astonishing manner. Mr
Carle looked at the stranger a moment
fter the tune began, (slow at first) with
a peculiar itare, and then rose to his feet,
and without a smile upon his features be
gan to dance. In a moment after, I)r,
Casoy, from Mound City, on hit way to
the Tins Hullitin ofbVo. at
tempted to by tbu ltvary stable
door, but, hearing the music, stopped,
looked in at tbo player playing and Carl
dancing, aud then, with all the tolemuitv
of an undertaker, began to dance. A
uioinont after Judg lirosi and Messrs.
Lynch,, Gotiuian and Yocuut, walking
from the court-house to Barclay's drug
store to get a glass of Saratoga water,
came within sound of the tune, and at
once began to keep time to it with their
eight good feet. It waa observed by all
that Clerk Yocjui excelled In lb ait of
to twirling, giving even JudgaBrou one,
going it alone and making four. Present
ly Capt. Kichard Fitzgerald, Squire Sum-
merwell, Col. Stockfletb, Mr. J as. John
son, Mayor "Wood, Lawyer "Wheeler,
Judge Baker, Editor Harroll, and at least
a dozen other gentleman, including sever
al preacher.', attempting to past the ttable,
bearing the tune, Immediately joined
in the dtneo which all seemed to enjoy.
Chief of Police MoHale, Sargeant Cain,
and Policemen Lallue, Martin and Men
ser, seeing the ttrango spectacle from I
distance and believing a riot wa
in progress, rushod among tba
crowd of dancers to quell It, but the mo
ment they came within the sound of the
tune they also all fell to dancing as if they
were beating tan bark with their heels.
Suddenly tho wonderful musician stop
ped the tune, when all the dancers stopped
dancing and each walked otLas if nothing
had happened out of the ordinary way.
Wo do not ask to be believed, but we
can prove all we have said by Capt. San
dusky, who was engaged in thedance, and
culled tho figures ; and by Mr. Shores,
who was also a spectator and participated
in tho weird scene.
Whon Carlo recovered his composure
tho musician had vanquished, and has not
been seen since. He was not Ole Bull,
but who tho devil was be? That's the
question, and we have asked it at the
particular request of Dr. Casey, who it
anxious to ongage his services for Capt.
.SOMETHING AUOUT SEVERAL
1'EKSONS AND A NUM
BER OF THINGS.
We had the pleasure of meeting several
Mound City gentlemen yesterday. It is
scarcely necessary to tay wa mat them in
a saloon. They were not drinking when
wo saw them. They know wa have an
avorsion to liquor, and don't drink whan
wo are noar.
"While we woro talking to Dr. Casey
and Mr. Cartor, two of our Mound City
friends, Mr. John Poor, tba gentleman
who foolishly wandered sway to Denver,
but who has returned to Cairo even as tho
Prodigal Son return! to hi, father's
house uew ideal grasped us by the
hand, took us aside and whispered In our
"Oh, I urn back at Cairo,

"Denver's great olty,
But Is not the place for me.
For I am not adapted
To Arnold's col-o-ne;'
"Wo 'havo no doubt the poor man
would bave continued to pour hit rhyth
mlcal lamentations into our ear for an
hour, if Pat Fitzgerald had not called
us aside to say he had good job on in

determined to Veep our word,
Judk Hakir granted the injunction
against Major Leo at midnight's gloomy
hour. Mulkey, and "Wheeler insist he
ought not to have don it, whll Green
and Gilbert are sure ho should have done
nothing else under the circumstance,
The Major and Col. Wood wer about to
carry off the road In their pockets and
thoy had to bo rettrainM. Aiuuey ana
the Injunction and told the judge on Fri
day why be ought to do so, but Green and
Gilbert told him ho ought not to quash it.
He has been Incubating tin) matter since
Friday, but up to a late hour last night
bad not hatched out nn opinion.
Speaking of Whoelor reminds us of tho
fact that ho has become a granger. "Wo
knew he would como to it. Ho always
does. Wu go a littlo faster than he, and
change with tnoru suddenness If not more
frequently, but bo is suru as shooting.
After we advanced from tho Republican
position of our youthful daya, when our
sympathies went out to' tho "poor old
ave, our friend Wb'e!er advanced in
to the party of freedom, and thcr. ut Inst
joint J us in the great Democratic party.
U'r were strong in tho faith, hut ' uas
reasonable. At last wo began to weaken
and became u Chase man, but he bud be
come an ultra "Dimlrrat ' and stood shoul
der to shoulder with Mulkny, and Green
and Allen, thefleaders of the tinturritlod.
Finally wa became a Liberal and Wheeler
modified into a new departure man, Tak
ing another step down, we became an anti
Democrat and Wheeler became a despon
dent Democrat, and ''despondent ' is next
door to "antl. ' Going still farther into
the Slough of Despond we became a gran
ger, and Wheeler an anti-Democrat. And
now be Is alio a granger. At tbo last
meeting of our grange, over which tho
farmer, Mr. Dyas T. Parker, presided, wo
aided in Wheeler's Initiation, and em
braced him, In token of our ronowod
political friendship we both wear timothy
seed lu our hair, and cat straw like tho ox.
Wo have consulted with Mr. Whoolerand
are willing to clnp Greon, Allen und
Mulkey in tho granger embrace
Speak-icg of grangers reminds us that
Mr. Davis of tho 'Sun' has n carbuncle on
his bead. Wo don't know why grangers
should remind us of carbuncle.', but they

three aro all on tho left tide.
Four of them are vory painful, but tho
other tlx do not glvo him any trouble.
Dr. Dunning says they aro all carbuncles,
but Dr. Casoy pronounces thorn mumps.
Wa believe both the doctors tiro mistaken
and liavo no doubt tho eruptions on our
friend's head bave boon occasioned by an
effort of his brains to escape. He has too
many brains and they are crowding each
Speaking of bruins reminds us that wo
Cairo boys can't play base ball, because
probably brains and base ball don't go to
gether. For tbo same reason tho Mound
City boys ran play baio ball. And, be
sides, they havo nothing elio to do. Thuro
Is no business being done in Mound City,
and the bays must cither play ball or sleep.
No wonder .Mound Citv beats Cairo at
Speaking of brains also reminds us that
Rev. Mr. Thompson will preach to-day on
'The Existence of God," and probably re
ply to Ingersol's oration on "Tho Gods,"
in which it Is claimed that there is no God.
