them. .Thoto ofheors. tracked the culprits
from tho placa whoro they landed on tho

Hero olllcors Mallalo aud Cain woro mot
by Sharif"" Irvin nnd John Holmta. Tho
two tlrt named officers roturnod to the
city, and ShorilV Irvin and John Holmes
continued tho pursuit. From tbo ferry
landing Parks nnd Black walked to. Fort
When Irvln and Holmes arrlvod at tho
Fort they learned, that Parks and Black
had stolon a skill" and gono on down tho
rlvor, having about an half hour's start.
Tho ihorill' also procured a skiff and
started aftor them, and rowed all tho way
to Columbus. At Columbus the sheriff
learned that Parks had camo ashoro nnd
purchmod some arllclos of food, but
that bo and his partner had
gono on, nnd had on hour or moro tho
start of him. Shoriir Irvln tologriphcd'
to tho authorities at Hickman to nrroit

do so. Arriving at Hickman, nnd loom
ing that tho authorities had not nrrcstod.

men to help row tho skllf, aud continuod
tho pursuit. On Thursday thoy wcro in

At Island 10 the shoriir uiot a man

Tho sheriff thon fooling sura that ho

where ho stated the caso to tho sheriff of
that county, wbo offered him overy assist
ance in his power. A posso was gathorcd,
and throd m'on armed with shot guns, by
dlroctlon'of. ShorifiIrvfn went up tho
rlvor bank. A short distance abovo tho
town they b&w two man in a skiff,
and lovellng ILcir pioces at them ordorod
thorn to -coma a:horo, Parks requostod
tho men " to' be carofuf,"'"Just to wait,"
that.ho "was coming."
Orico on shore Parks And Black doniod
that they wore criminals. Parks said ho
was i.i tho employ of Mr. Jas. Morris, 'tlio
lumbor dealer, who ho (Parks) said bad
had a lot of logs stolen, aud sont him out
to look for thorn. Parks said that ho was
woll acquainted in Now Madrid, nnd if
they would tako him to Col. Rutherford
bo would qatlsfy thorn that bo was all
right. So they wont to Rutherford, who
said he. know this man tba( ho, was all
right good for what ho said, otc. Tho
loader of tho party thon apologized to tho
captives, and was about to roloaso thorn,
when ono of tho party said :
"Colonel, whoro did you know this
man ? "
" Why,' - ahswprod tho colonol, in
Cairo; it is Mr; Parks."
That was pnqugh, Thoy thon took
Parks ud Blaok to Irvln.
After belnc turnod over to Sheriff Ir
vin Parks talked in ai most flippant and
doyll-mo-caro manner about the crime
with wbicli ho Btands chargod. He said
ho "wanted ten years in tho ponltentiary,
and was bound to bavo it." His wishos
in that rcBpoct wo foar will only bo too
woll gratified. They acknowledged tho
tlio crime, und did not snem to think it so

Prof. Tyndal as roprcsentatlves of the

Upon making known our errand, Prof.
Tyndal Invlto's us to his'labratory", and
producing a prism, soon shows tho spec

Prof. Tyndal Invislblo light.
Dr. John Uqw do you know?
