The convention to be hold at the court

by but a single purpose in the selection

But if on tbe other hand we allow per

enter the convention, wc might as well
not nominate a ticket at all.
The entertainment to be given by the
"Juvenile Wide Awakes" this evening
should be attended br all ttios; w ho can

One result of the nomination ot a
straight Democratic ticket will be to put
a stop to the practice of a certain ele
nfent in the city to sell out to the candi
dates who can aflord to pay the highest
price. That this practice has been carried
on at each recurring city election for
years past Is la fact well know n to
every man in the city who knows any
thing at all about how our municipal elec
tions have been conducted. The leaders
of the element aro now in the market,
and offering to sell their "influence" to
the highest bidder, but so tar have found
no takers. The nomination of a "straight

ground a short distance above tho city,
w itb his daughter Martha, a girl aged
si xtceu years, was engaged in cleaning

etc. While engaged in raking up leaves
and light brush and putting them on the
burning heap the girl's clothing caught

to run about the field, tbe wind fanning
the flames as she went.
Hearing her screams her father went to
her rescua as soon as he could, and
though he succeeded lu removing some
of her clothes, she had already been so
severely burned as to render it doubtful
it she can recover. Her arms, limbs.
breast and stomach are frightfully
burned, and at seven o'clock last evening
she was suffering most intensely. Dr.
Stalker called to see her, aud gives it as
his opinion that she may recover, though
it Is doubtlul. Mr. Davis, father of the
victim, was also badly burned about the

The Ohio river continues to "climb up
the bank" at this point. Tho river yes
terday, was 1 foot 5 Inches; but tbat we
shall have very high water this season is
not probable, aud the river nere
will perhaps not exceed t'ree
feet more. The fall at Cincinnati was i
feet S inches, and at Loulsyille 8 inches.
The Cumberland is also tailing at Nash
ville. The Mississippi rose 7 inches at'
St. Louis. Business is comparatively
fair in river circles.
