The Dongola correspondent of the
Jonesboro O'azttte, says: "The frosts
of Monday and Tuesday mornings did
not very materially duniago tho pros
pective fruit and berry crops. Tho late
tender strawberry ;buds just in bloom
were killed, but these lorm a very small
proportion oi tlic berries in sight. A
few apples were killed, and also tho last
bloom of the cherry trees, but enough
are left to make a good crop. The early
Irish potatoes were considerably bitten,
and the very few sweet potato plants
that had been set were perhaps ruined.
The latter will be replaced with new
plants, and the former will grow out
again. Wheat is said not to be Injured,
and the prospect for a large yield has
never been better. The farmers and fruit
growers are cheerful, a sure sign that
we shall have an abundance of every
thing in their line."
Mr. R. Buckingham, writing from
Alto Pass, under date of May 1st. to Mm
Jonesboro Oairite, says : "I find on ex
amining the fruit that the only damage
done Is to the strawberry plants. On
the Ridge the damage amounts to
from one-third to one-fourth. On the
low lands, from one-halt to two-thirds
of the strawberries are killed. Toma
toes that were set out on the highlands
not Injured. None raised on tho low

Mayor Winter in his message to the
city council says there are less houses
ol ill-lame in the city than lor years be
lure. Tills la uot the case. Thero never
was a time In the history of the city
when there was so many places ot pros
titution In the city as at present ; and
there never was a time w hen the inmates
of these dens were allowed so much lat
itude as uuder the present administra
tion. But then as his honor promises
to exercise a stricter police supervision
over this class of persons during the year
just commencing, we should not com.
plain, and are willing to give him credit
lor whatever good ho may accomplish.
The mayor's action in the appoint
ment of the standing committees of the
city council has been the subject ot con
siderable comment among the friends of
some ! the aldermen. His honor has
ignored his friends in the matter of chair
manships. In nearly every coute.-t be
tween the mayor and the council. Alder
men Patier, Lancaster, Mi-Gauley and
Yocum have stood by h's honor ; and
yet iu the selection of his committees
Mayor Winter snubs them all. Thistle-
wood, Rittenhouso and Wright each

important committees of the council.
His honor is ungrateful.
An old and small very suiall-clerk
lu a down-town business house has been
making it a point to gulp down the con
tents ol "beer schooners," and being
short of the amount collected when the
time comes to settle on the first ot each
month. Last Tuesday was the first ot
the month, and the anniversary of bock
beer fulling on the same day, the clerk
was in nu glory. While out collecting
he visited several of the beer sal Jons and
drank freely. He drank and collected.
which fatigued him. He became so tlrcu
that he was compelled to crawl in a stable
and rest He rested so long that bU em
ployer became uneasy about bim, and
when he returned to the store he found
he was short, but couldn't account lor it.
His employer not being of a suspicious
nature believed him. We know of sev
eral Just like this small clerk, and would
advise them that beer and collecting do
not go well together, and one or the other
must be dispensed with.
To enforce the decree of tho circuit
court In the matter of the Illiuois Central
railroad, is to virtually drive a namber
of the mills aud manufacturing establish
ments on the levee out ot business. In
conversation yesterday with a gentleman
who has an Interest Iu one ot the
mills on the levee, we wero informed
that it they were deprived of tho privl
leges uow oflcred mem by tho Illinois
Central they would certainly closo their
mill aud quit the business. Wo under
stain mere arc omers wno express
a like determination, und
lu the end tho city will be i
greater loser than tho railroad com
pany. We fear many of our citizens do
not comprehend tho Importance of the
decree on the business interests of the
city. It Is true the railroad company
will bo put to great inconveulence and
expense If It is enforced ; but will uot Its
enforcement eflect tho busiuess Interests
ot the city equally as disasterously.

A Young Sharper.
Night before last a young man (we
will call him Mud) went Into one of the
Commercial avenue saloons, walked tip
to the lunch table and commenced filling
a plate. While he was thus helping him
self the barkeeper stepped up and de
manded ten cents.
"What do you want with ten cents V"
"1 fiat's my own affair. I charge all
those who are not my customers," re
plied the barkeeper.
Mud ran his hand iu his pocket, and
after fumbling there awhile, said, "1 can
get lunch at any other place without a
n.ekle. I've got plenty of monev. but
wouldn't spend a cent here."
"Got plenty money !" exclaimed the
barkeeper, "I don't see where you get
it. You are not doing auytliiui'."
Mud went down his upper vest pocket
and drew forth three cards, saving,
"That's the way 1 make my inoiiey."JS
At this juncture Mr. Mud was bounced.
C'roaalua; the Deaert
Is generally an eventful episode In life;
whether it be as pilgrim to worship the
prophet's shrine at Mecca, or as a part of
a caravan ot merchants. Tha dangers of
the destructive simoon, attacks ot preda

from thirst are dissipated on reaching
one of those gardens ot the desert, an
oasis. Partaking of that which recuper

with recruited strength aud renewed en

from disease threaten all humanity, but
if we make use of a remedy w hich allevi

realize that necessary and refreshment in
