fell in with S.itn Jor.len, alo a trpinp in
search ol w ork. Jorden had a small sum
ol money, and was willing to di
vide with Higgin and Smith. During
the day the three traveled together, and
at night camped in the woods togcthf r.
Thcv built a tire, nnd Jordon being tired
lay down to sleep. While Jordon slept,
Higgins and Smith stole his money, took
his coat oil' hi back and the boot. from
his feet, and then put out. When Jor
den woke up and found that he had been
robbed, he went to Stone Fort,
where he claimed that his
two friends had just passed through the
town on their way to Cairo. Jorden
took the first train for this city, and call

I rum Our Jonesbnro Correspondent
Jo.NFsnoKo, 111., Dec. 2, '70.
Fki ior Bi t.t ktin : The grand fea
ture ol the season has transpired, and the
lever heat which has been stiring tip the
blood and expectation of our citizens
ha come and gone. Fhe fraud Leap
Year and Christmas night ina.-;ierade
ball (rather a lengthy nume Mr. editor,
but I hope you will have sorts enough to
put it i i ) , took place on last Monday
eve, December 2"i, and a grand one U
was, there being present about eighty
maskers, beside one hundred or more
spectators. At ! o'clock the dancing be
gan, and a motley crowd it was: There
were the negro wenches, the ku-klux,
the dandies, the Spanish ladies, the. fat
men, the country lads and lasses, the
petifogger, and a host ot innumerable
characters personated. Among the best
represented characters I saw the laces
ol "Topsy," Miss Ida Williams, w hich
was personated to perlertion, causing a
general mirth at every action; the coun
try girl, "Polly Ann," Fdmonia Brooks,
which was also good; the picture girl,
Mr. A. Cook; the Spanish lady, Mrs. Dr.
Mcl.ean, of Du ijuoin ; the fat boy from
the rural district, Mr. J. F. chirk; the
clow n, B. W. S. W heatly; Ihe Swiss ii I,
Mrs. 11. A. Day ; Pouiiatan, W. S. Han
ner. There were many oilier well repre
sented characters there but I did not learn
theuainesol the person, ul--o .-ome there,
generally speaking, without character,
that is to say, they themselves did not
know what they were representing, but
simply dressed up." I might al-o sur
mise "drunk," as the general term for
wearing line toggery, but with a few
drunks there were no disturbances, us
nio.st of the drunks were ymUil, I must
not forget to m-Mlou the supper; Mr.
Fditor, as that is generally the main fea
ture of a w ell regulated ball, and this w as
one of them, it was served ut the Joiics
boro hotel, the young ladies in (barge
having principally done the baking.
The supper was a very good one, such a
one us is calculated to make the young
men. who are aspiring lo matrimony,
anxious to taste of eveiy edible upon the
table, and as.k ipiestions afterwards. At
12 o'clock the procession was lormcd lor
the table and all w ere requested lo uu-tna-k.
At this point great was the sur
prise of many ot the benedicts to lind
that he had during the evening been
nearly crazy to find out who the superb
creature was, that hail selected him us
the? one to take lo supper. Their eyes
were all aglitter, bid as soon as the mask
Icll from the lady's lace you could hear
the words, "its the old woman. " Alter
supper dancing was kept up until the
daw u of day. There were lew w ho did
not enjoy themselves highly, the boy
especially us the th is payed the bill.
Business Is iiiile dull here now since
the rush for Christina "Irick" has died
out, hut during the lour or live days pre
vious to that day, our merchants and
their eleiki were run off their led wait
ing upou their customers. Our mer
chants are not now sorry that a dull sea-
ion for a lew days should set In, but I
fear that many of them w ill wishothtr
w i-e belore it is over.
For the past wci k our lee. men have

For many year wo have made two

have hi en made by them, and, in fact,
the word failure could not be coupled
with them. But within Ihe last two year
counterfeits of our medicines haye spi ung

we have placed upon cadi genuine box
