wit; i.ti i. uiui ii was a
comparatively easy task tor
thetn to get out. The flour Is covered
with three-eighth ot an inch iron spiked
to an under floor ol two-ln;b oak plank.
The Iron had become rotten and brittle
and was easily broken. The plank under
floor was also very rotten, and by merely
stamping on the iron the spikes which
held It to the wood became so loose that
they could be removed with ease. After
removing two or three spikes It was
but the work of a moment
to break away enough or
the iron to make a hole large enough to
admit a man's body. The next work
was to cut a hole through the plank
floor, which proved to be even an easier
task than to raic the iron. A tin plate,
such as are used in passing food into the
cejls, was converted into a saw, and with
this au opening was soon cut through
the floor, the planks being very rotten.
Having succeeded in cutting away the
floor of the cell, the prisoners passed
along between the joist until they
reached the floor or the hallway or the
lower portion or the court house.
This floor is ol one inch pine
boards, and old and rotten at that, aud It
could not have taken them long to cut
through it. Once through this floor, the
only remaining danger was to leave the
building without being detected, but the
Jailer being absent from the building at
tLe time there was little risk to run In
Jailer McCarthy informs us that he
left the jail at about 6:30 o'clock on Mon
day evening and was absent about one
hour, and thinks the prisoners made their
escape during his ab-ence.
The names of the parties escaping
arc, the man Abernathy, Harry Hamil
ton, AI. Whitehead and Harry Wallace.
Abernathy was awaiting trial on a
charge ot horae stealing. Whitehead, !
with Billy Goodall and Charlie Scott, was
awaiting trial on an indictment for play
ing a confidence game on a Kentuckian.
Harry Hamilton, together with two
others, O'Brien and Stibbens, were con
victed a few weeks ago on an indictment
for playing a confidence game on an old
man named Moon. Harry Wallace Is tbe
young fellow who shot the man "Wild
Cat'' in a difficulty some two or three
months aj;o at the corner of Commercial
avenue and Fourth street. Sheriff Saup
oners a reward ot $50 each for the cap
ture of Abernathy and Hamilton, and
$25 each lor Whitehead and Wallace.
An Investigation ot the cell in which
these men were confined, and
was considered the safest cell
tlie jail, proves beyond qulb'
ble that the Alexander county fall Is no
longer a fit place to confine prisoners.
l ne noors are oia ana rotten, ana it re
quires but little labor to break through
them. Y'estenlay morning Judge Baker
ordered Sherifl Saup to employ two men

Pulaski, Ills., Feb. 1:1, 1S77.
Editor Cairo Bulletin :
Y'our correspondent again claims a
place in your column, to give you a few
items of news.
Tlie wheat crops thus far look proinis
g. The acreage sown Is above an ave
rage, i ne fruit so lar is uninjured.
The little town of L'llen has been tbe
cene ol au exciting local war, princi
pally among the lemlnines. It appeareth
that the green-eyed monster has been at
work with extraordinary success. Mrs.
, it seems, (who is a late addition
to the village) Is a regular heart-smasher.
She Is a lady of fine acquirements and
extraordinary beauty In fact the queen
all hearts. She, without much effort
on her part, captured the heart of one
Mr. P., and held him 'in love's
me:-hes uutil a couple of tell-tale letters
fell Into the hand9 ol her. Mr. P.'s
wife. Aud now for the sequel : Arming
bereir with a big club, she sought the
charming Mrs. W., and then ensued
one of those episodes which furnish
food for the gosslper lor the whole sea
son. Mrs. I . laid on her big club re
lentlessly, while Mrs. W. was so
surprised and mortified that she was
powerless, and tho interposition or third
parties alone terminated the scene.
But now the majesty of the
law is invoked. Mrs. P. is
arrested, charge! with assaulting Mrs.
W., and without the tear of God In her
heart, or the majesty ot the law before
her eyes, of inflicting sundry bruises and
cuts on the head ol Mrs. W. It is the
Sabhath day, but the parties must go to
Justice M.'s for trial. But here again
Mrs. W. was doomed to disappointment.
The defendant reaching the justice's
office In advance ot the witnesses, claimed
a trial and was discharged before Mrs.
W. and her IrieuJs got there, and the
constable, thinking he had done some
thing which needed praying tor, at once
repaired to church and engaged In solemn
worship the remainder or the day and
all night. But tlie end Is not yet. On
Monday Mrs. P. was again arrested and
taken before another justice but tbe trial
was postponed, and thus the matter rets
at this writing. I rony remark (by way ol
parenthesis) that the female portion of the
town sympathize with Mrs. P., while the
opposite sex are more lenient, aud are
sympathizing wlili Mrs. W. Both bave
plenty ot irieuds and both claim to be
aggrieved by the other. Kespecttully,

On the night or 11th of February, 1S77,
in passing through Cairo, I stopped at
the Waverly hotel, and delivered to the
andlady, Mrs. Gaffney, one over coat ot
the value ol twenty-live dollars. There
was an account book In the pocket of the
coat containing four notes for the
amount of three hundred and twenty-five
dollars each, pavable to R. R. Burnett
and endorsed by Joel T. Watkins and
Wilson Edwards. A liberal reward will
be paid tor coat and notes. I further
stated to landlady that I wanted pay for
my loss, and she inlormed me that
could not make anything out of her by
law. 11. R. Bl'RN'ETT.
Cairo, his., Feb. 12, 1S77. :it
Y'esterday was Mardi Gras day, aud
all things considered, the turnout here
was a success. The weather was cold
and a sleety, drizzling rain fell during
the greater part of the day. The masks
worn by those participating in the festiv
ities were, in most instances, fantastic
and amusing, and created much merri
ment among the great crowds that lined
the sidewalks along the route of the pro
cession. There was perhaps one hun
dred persons in the procession, aud
nearly every trade and business carried
on in the city was represented. The
take ofP on tlie Cairo lire department
was especially ricti. I lie ball In the
evening at tbe St. Charles hotel was a
grand success in every partlcularAll
lu all Mardi Gras in Cairo was all that
could have been expected. V
Cogent Reasons (or a Graud fcucrews.
Conspicuous among the highest ex
amples ot success which the present cen
tury can show is Ilostettcr's Stomach
Bitters. Tbe record of its triumphs over
disease is to bo traced in the written ac
knowledgments ot thousands who have
experienced its beneficent eflects, and
the evidence of its popularity is to be
found in the vast and crowing demand
for the article in North and South Amer
ico, Mexico, Guatemala, the West Indies,
Australia and Europe. The reasons lor
its unparalleled success are cogent ones.
The accumulated evidence of nearly
thirty years shows that it is a certain
remedy lor malarial disease, as well as
its surest preventive ; that it eradicates
dyspepsia, constipation, liver complaint
and nervousness, counteracts a tendency
to gout, rheumatism, urluary and uter
ine disorders, that it Imparts vigor to me
feeble, and cheers the mind while It In
vigorates the body. 3-13.

Dear Sik : My wile has been using
duily your bitter, and I am glad to say
she has been greatly benefited. Mte is
now stronger and in better geueral health
than she has been for years, and I feel
certain that her present gook health is
the i emit ot using a lew bottles of tbe
Home Bitters. She joins me in thanking
you lor your kindness. My wile has Im
proved so much that she does not need
the Bitters now, but thinks she will send
for a few bottles when cold weather sets
in. I commenced this letter at the re-
ouest ot a lrlend greatly suffering from
bronchial affection , which has brought
on general weakness. He asked me to
order for him a half dozen bottles. eud
