DESIETJCTIVB FIRE.
flostrnctloM of Corll A Rntrkln'a To
barro Factory at Xeirepeiu,
The tobacco factory ol O. W. Corlls
& Co., jit Metropolis, Massac county,
was destroyed by lire on Sunday night
between eleven and twelve o'clock. The
building and about $90,000 worth of to
bacco and cigars was consumed, not to
exceed $1,000 worth of manufactured
goods belutr saved from the lire.
It is not positively known to
bo so, but the impression prevails that
the fire was the work of an
incendiary. The building, together with
the stock ot manufactured tobacco on
band, was worth from $30,000 to $3.1,000,
with $10,000 insurance on building and
stock. The loss of this establishment is
a heavy blow to Metropolis, and we hope
to hear of the tlnu returning business
again soon. Mr. Curtis l one of the solid
and enterprising men of Southern Illi

Caiuo, III., Dec. 13, 1875.
Mu. Epitok: 1 have to begin tills let
tcr by scolding some one of your type
setters, for using the word "save," In
stead of "earn," (as it was written in tny
manuscript), thereby giving Mrs. S. J. S,
a rhnnce fn accuse me of misrepresent'
Hon.
I am filled with admiration verging
upon consternation, when I witness the
dexterity with which she slips out of tha
tight-fitting robes with which 1 clothed
her last week, and tries to transfer them
to the Centennial Association and your
humble correspondent. It is afeat equal
to any of the ropc-untylng mediums, and
will uo doubt be as much appreciated by
the world. It Is scarcely necessary for
me to assert a fact well known to the
public, that 1 could not have meant tbe
Centennial Association ladies were gos
sips, because their characters are too well
known in Cairo to make It necessary for
me to defend tlicm from such an accusa
tion, or heap such a one upon them my
self. As to my own predilection for gos
siping, it would be tuclcss to deny it, as
all newspaper letter-writers are more or
less altllctcd In that manner.
Mrs. S. J. S. thruita that terrible two
edged question at mc again, "where, If
not out of your husband's pocket, tho
money comes from," etc. I, for one,
shall not attempt to dispute it so far as I
am concerned, and I don't see what rea
sonable objection can be raised to such a
natural state ot affairs. Hut If Mrs. S. J.
S. were as strong an advocate of woman's
rights ns she professes to be, she would
not try to leave the Impression upon the
public mind, that all women get their
nickles from their husbands' pockets. I
could refer her right hero In Cairo to wo
men who sew, teach, wash, iron and even
carry on business Miecessfully, thereby
earning their own living, aud in many
cases supporting or helping to support
their husbands.
In reply to the question, "why, if an
hnntat penny only is to be turned, resort
to such means?'' I can heartily answer
that we think the pennies very honestly
turned Indeed, when wc furnish a nice
Mippcr and a pleasant evening fur tweii-ty-llyu
cents, as we intend doing at our
tea party next Wednesday night.
Finally, Mrs, S. .1. S.;teems to miscon
strue the motives of our society entirely.
Wu have not the least desire to "tie" her
hands on the contrary, we want her to
continue using them as effectively (for
the good of our cause) as she has already
been doing. And if in assisting the Cen
tennial Association, I also anlst the
woman's suffrage cause, then indeed will
my ambition be gratified, for that Is Just
what I want to do. I noticed with pain
that in the latter part of her letter,
licr mlud seemed tu wander. She was
not, could not have been our opponent
lastSpriug, because our assoclatlou did
not then exUt. It was only organized
on tho 2;id ol November, aud thercloro
her statements as to what It did or didn't
do last spring, must necessarily
fall harmless to tha ground.
She closes In u contradictory
spirit of egotism, humility and candor;
ut least it seems to me, to savor of vanity,
to refer to one's self as having "a ready
pen and readier wit ;" aud then again, I
think It an unnecessary piece of candor
to call herself "a mere foam that rises to
tho top of tho highest wave, and whose
greatest ambition is to favor popular
opinion." Now, allhoutrli foam Is u
bountiful and sparkling tiling, 1 really
think Mrs. S. J. S. is too solid to be
likened to It, ami that sho has any desire
to curry favor with the public I can
scarcely believe, Judging from her loiters.
Let me close this long epistle by re.
ferring to an article signed M. W. also in
tills morning's Otizttte. If I were a man,
I would like to wager that M. W. never
has and never will give u dollar towards
making the new levee, and that tho rea
son our association will "never get a cent
out ot him," Is because he lias not got
any to give, aud bis friends will not loan
hltu any. Ckn-tkmmal.

to the rather,.
The
Several day ago we staled that ,an 'In
teresting habeas corpui ens was then, on
trial before Judge Baker lu the Johnson
county circuit court; that a yoifng man
named Hodge and a daughter of Capt,
Alf.,Cutting ware the parties, ami the
contest for possession of a child a little
boy. At thu time the Item referred to
was written w were ignorant of the real
facta lu the case, and in order that we
might not do either party lnjustlcc,.re:
f rained from comment.
Since then, wo haye learned morn about
the matter, and now are able to give our
readers the facts, at we gathered them
from a gentleman who wus in Vi
enna during the progress of tho
iriai, nnu wno nut himself to some
troublo to learn all about It and the hlv
tory of the parties to tho stilt.
In 1872, a young lawyer named Berry
llodgc, and Miss Alice Cutting, a hcatitt
fill and accomplished young lady, (laugh
tcrol Capt. All. Cutting, the well-known
boat builder ut Metropolis, were married
Mr. and Mrs. Hodge lived together for
about a year, or until February 1873,
when n child, a littlu boy, was born to
them. They were, to alt appearance.
Happily mated, and much attached to
each other. If there was ever any cauae
of disagreement or difficulty between
them, no one but themselves was
aware oi it.
Shortly after tho birth of their child,
Mr. llodgo was attacked with hemor
rhage of the lungs, and failing to obtain
relict from borne physicians, he resolved
to go to Colorado, in the hope of regain
ing his health. His wife accompanied
him as far as .this city on his Journey,
and the two spent a day or two together
ncre before lie proceeded on his way
to tho "far WesL" Mrs. Hodge re-
turned to Metropolis, and Mr. Hodge
went to Colorado.
Husband and wife kept up a cor
respondence, and the letters which passed
between them wcro full of expressions of
love, and hope for tho spcedy,rccovery of
the husband.
Mr. Hodges speut six mouths in Colo
rado, at the expiration oi which time,
haying regained his health, and liking
the country, he concluded to locate
there. He wrote to his wife informing
her of his intentions and requesting her
to go to bun. In answer to this requctt
she refused to go unless he should come
to Metropolis after her. In the Spring ot
1874, having been successful in business,
Mr. Hodges came to Metropolis for his
wife, but she declined to go with him.
Bttore comlughchad several times urged
her to go to him, but she steadily re
fused to do so. He also sent money for
the support of the child; but his wife re
turned the moaey to him without mak
ing any explanation of her reasons tor
so doing.
At tbe last term of thu Massac county
circuit court, the wife, Mrs. Hodge, tiled
her bill for divorce. Information of
this action on the part of his wife being
made kuowu to the husband, lie came oa
to defend himself. Arriving at Metrop
olis, Hodges wrote u not to
Ids wife urging her to forget tbe
past, and go with him to his home hi Col
orado. To this note ho never received a
reply. Despairing of ever getting his
wife to go with him to Colorado, Hodge
resolved to take legal steps to get posses
sion of the child. To this end he sued
out a writ of habeas corput for tho cus
tody of the child. The ease was tried be
fore Judge Uakor lu the Johnson county
circuit court last week, and resulted lu
tho father obtaining the custody of the
boy.
Our Informant slates that during all
the trial there was uotblug brought out
to show that there had ever been trouble
between the husband and wife ; but on
the contrary, while they lived together,
they were, ut laasi to the
outside world, tbe happiest
when alone together. Their correspond
nice, which was ot a most interesting
character, would lead oue to bollevo they
were ns much attached to one another us
ever.
Indeed, tho whole affair seems to beau
Inexplicable mystery, and it is doubted
whether the parties themselves really
kuow the causes leading to their es
trangement. Mrs. Hodge is a most accompliilied
aud beautiful young lady, now ubout
twenty-oue years oi age. Mr. Hodge Is
In his twcnty-lifth year, aud represented
to be a young lawyer of extraordinary
attainments in his profession, and very
Industrious.
