-Tbe muaic loving portion of our cltl
zens should not forget tbe concert this
evening at the Athencum, under the aus
pices of tb Kgyptlan Choral Society of
Mound City. Tbe programme published
in another place is one which will attract
attention, and will no doubt draw a full
house. On several occasions when our
Cairo singers have given concerts at
Mound City they have been greeted by
full house, and it is to b? hoped our peo
plo will not fill to return the compliment
on this occasion.
One day last wook Sheriff Irvin went
down tbo river in search of Dick Owens,
who hat been wanted in this city for a
long time past. Owens is living In a fish
ing boat somewhere between Cairo and
Columbus, and is always on tbe lookout
for Sheriff Irvin, wbo beknowi will sooner
or later "lake him in oat of tbo weather"
if he is not very cautious. When tbe
steamer came within asout two hundred
yards of Dick's floating palaco, the bell
was rung to itop, and Sheriff Irvin and
ex-pollceinan Fred Whltcamp, wbo ac
companied him, Jumped into one of the
yawls and made for the palace. But
on tbo flr.t tap of tho boll of tbe
Illinois, Owens and another nsn
also took to their skiff and made for the
Kentucky shore. For a time the race was
an exciting one, and everybody on the Il
linois was out on tbo guards watching to
sco hnw it would terminate. Owen's boat
being much the lighter, reached shore first,
and Dick and bis partner, a man named
Charlie Holly, succeeded in escaping to
the woods, where it was useless to follow
them. Both Owons and bis partner ware
armod with guns, and had Sheriff Irvin
Htid Whltcamp nressrd them too closely,
it is not unreasonable to supposotbat "hot
work" would have ensued. Dick Owens
may escape for awhilo, but his day will
come, and thai too probably before be is
prepared for it.

Tbe boy himsolf is well-known to many
of our citizens. Desiring to "see the
elephant," tbe boy referred to expressed a
wish to be allowed tn go out Into tho world
and make his own living. His father, a
gentleman well-known and highly es
teemed for his industry and groat worth
as a oltizen, doclined to permit his ion to
leave home, advising him to wait until be
was older, and he would then have all the
time required to see tbo world. Thus the
matter stood, and at tbo boy never after
mentioned his wish tn go away, his parents
believed he had givon up the notion and
