There is every reason to believe that
the present Inflow of river water through
the Fitteenth street sewer will not
amount to much that the water will not
get to be ot any great depth. The river
is tailing rapidly at all points above
Cairo, and a decline may be expected to
occur within the next fourty-eight
hours. In this case the water will run
out as rapidly as it has run in.
Last evening between six and seven

sized Smith & Weston six-shooter, from
one of the shelves in his saloon, the
weapon slipped out of his band and tell
to the floor, causing one of the barrels to
explode. The ball struck Mr. Baker on
the inside of I he left leg, raging upwards
and eomlng out on the opposite side near
the thigh. While the wound is not dan

Between 12 and 1 o'clock Wednesday
night, while patroling Commercial ave
nue near Sixth street, Officers Andy-Cain
and Sargent had their attention attracted
by a couple of shots being fired in the vi
einity of Scott's saloon. Going to the
saloon the officers found a number of per.
sons about i vVmo. but no one could,
or If they could, would give them any n-
formation as to who fired the shots or be
tween whom there had been a difficulty.
Alter lurking about the neighborhood
for five or ten minutes, however, the
officers were again startled by hearing
several shots fired on Fifth street, as
they supposed in tha vicin
ity of the old "Flat Top." They
started In the direction from which th
shots nroceeded. but had not rone far
when they were met by a colored man
running, and followed by another colored
man who had a revolver in his band and
pointed at the headot the man just ahead
of him. Tho officers arrested both par
ties and locked them up in the calabose.
Yesterday they were taken before J udge
Bross tor a bearing. It came out on the
trial that the name of one of the parties
James Woods, who resides on Fifth
street near the old "flat Top." J.ne
other man's name Is George Barton, a
stranger who came to the city only a few
days ago - from St. Louis.
It was further proven that
Burton had gone to Woods' house during
the latter's absence, and breaking in the
door, assaulted Woods' wife with a huge
butcher knife, threatening to kill her.
Woods' was at Scott's saloon, and hear
ing of what Burton had done, went to
his home, and on arriving there
found that Burton was still In
the neighborhood. Then the diffi
culty occurred as above stated. Woods
fired three or tour shots, only one of
which struck Burton, and that one failed
to penatrate the Jskln. The Judge held
that notwithstanding Burton's conduct.
Woods had uo right to :ake the law in
his own hands, and senthira to Jail un
der $500 bail. Mrs. Wcods then asked
that Burton bo arrestee. She said she
was afraid of him, and told the follow
ing story: She has inow Burton tor
several years. About nine months ago,
while living in Si. Louis, Burton
eame to her noise to see tier
when she told him that she was married,
and he '.would have to discontinue his
visits. Burtou then threatened to kill
her, but she paid so attention to his
threat. Only a ten hours after she told
Burton that he most not come to see her
any more, she hal occasion to go to a
grocery store, and while In the store Bur
ton shot at her through the window, tho
ball passing within a shot distance of
her person. Burton was arrested aud
confined iu the county jail at
St. Louk for nino months.
When leaving tha sourt room for the
jail Burton again warned Mrs. Woods
that he intended to kill her. Shortly
after Burton was sent to lull, Mrs.
Woods, with her husband, moved to
Cairo.wlvcre they have since resided. Bur
ton was released from jail but a few days
ago, and learning that Mrs. Woods had
moved to this city, came here, as his
conduct proves, with the view of carrjiug
his threat into execution. Burton was
taken into custody, aud sent to jail under
bonds of $500. lie U if his countenance
Is to bo taken U an indicator, a desperate
character, and safer in jail than onto! it.

On next Friday evening, tho pupils of
the Cairo High school, under the super
vision of Mrs. O. G. Alvord, will glyo a
i.(..tariml entertainment for the benclit
of the Ladies' TAbr&ry association. The
vrogrammc will consist of a dramatiza
tion ot "The Courtship of Miles Stan
dish," and a few miscellaneous recita
tions. The dramatization is one that has
never been presented in public before,
and contains features of unusual interest.
The entertainment was to have
been given to the public on
the night of the anniversary of
the landing ot the Pilgrim Fathers, but
was postponed on acccunt of the nee
eesary absence of Mrs. Alvord from the
city at that time. It is the purpose ot
those Interested to give an entertainment
of rare interest, and It Is hoped that the
people ot this city will patronize it lib
erally, .both on account of Its intrinsic
merit and the object for which it is
given. Good music will be a feature of
