The Judge then dealt out Justice to
four erring demireps, named Mary Scott,

Honor placed a line of fifteen dollars and

nineteen days.
Then came William St. Clair. Wil

when the Judge lined him two dollars nnd

To-lay has marked a higher tempera
ture than any day during the past week.
The sun shone hot during the forenoon,
the afternoon was cloudy, and the day
closed threatening rain. Tho streets are
dry and dusty, and an occasional small
shower would not be objectionable.
Both rivers are falling steadily. The
Ohio was falling nt the rate ofa half an Inch
per hour to-day, and will fill at a much
faster rate to-morrow. Two or threu days
will permit the opening ot the sewers,
and another week will Hud the city
entirely clear of the rain-water that has
accumulated during the last lew weeks.
Husluess shows no Improvement. He
celpts are light in hay, com and ilour,
and the market Is bare. Xew oats are
plenty and almost uusalc-iblo on account
of bad condition. Choice No. 2isu,uotcd

IflrOur friends should bear In mind

There Is some demand for choice hay,

Inches on tho gauge, having fallen 17 2-5
Inches during tho previous is hours. The

storm last evening. Atmosphere close
nnd hot.

gone up the Ohio with tows of ore.
The Alice Brown brought out 20
barges, four of which were left ut Padu

proving rapidly, nnd Davis says that, at
the table, "outsiders have no show."
Mr. Davis accompanied the Kekert to
Thebes on a sort ol plcaniro excursion,
anticipating n happy time, and In return
for the hoipitality of the Eekert proposed
to supply the crew with wild game, nshc
Is something of 11 Nltnrod. He writes
tlmt lie has been disappointed, and that
owing to Cnpt. Dugnn's wonderful nppe

than 'up town,' where he
buys si couple of squirrels
which he claims to have killed. A boy
