Capl. W alter Fall, whose death occur

lu Tempo, Fcrmanaugli county, IrcUnd,
lu 181 i, and camo to Cairo In 1835. Fpr
years after he kept a hotel on tho wharf
boat Kllen Klrkman, we think. In'JWl
or '12 he went up the Arkansas on a
trading expedition In a keel boat, aiul It
proved successful, lteturniiig In M4 or
4ft, ho moved his vviiarl-lioat to Ohio City,
on tho MUioitrl shore, where ho after
wards owned a More, which ho held until
1801. At the breaking out of thn vr he
abandoned that enterprise and bought a
little farm above Bird' Polut, oil which
he resided until 1872, when ho moved io
this city, as the farm had all washed Into
the river. Ho owned considerable prop
erty In tlu city, and .till own a valuable
tann in hU native county in- IrdwiiL.
