While Mr. Pile was absent from home
attending his mill at Arlington, one ol
the old family netrroes, Ell Pile, a boy
sixteen years old, was ordered by Mrs.
Mattle Pile to saddle her horse for the
purpose ot visiting some of the neigh
bors. The nero boy instead of obeying
the orders of Mrs. Pile commenced
In her face with an old boot-heel,
a milk-jar, etc. He also choked her vlo.
lently. Every effort to extricate herself
from the negro's arms was made. She
offered him any amount of money to let
herlooe but all her pleadings were In
vain. The more she
ASKED FOR JILRCV
the worse he choked her. After he had
beaten her to death, as he thought, he
THREW HER INTO A CISIERV
In the ell part of the house, which had
five feet ol water In It. The negro then
let a candle down In a bucket to make
sure she was dead, but as one M le of the
cistern had caved in Mrs. Pile succeeded
in hiding herself so as to prevent the
negro from seeing her. The negro, sat

the cistern, "

he saddled the horse and hitched it at
the gate, andNvent to the field where
some other negroes were plow ing, and
stated that Mrs. P. was getting ready
and would be off in a few minutes. He
then went to the creek to fish. ,
Mrs. Pile struggled in the water and I
succeeded in finding a root, which had
bursted off the plastering, to which she
held herself out ol the water. Her

In the cold water from two to seven p.m.
MR. PILE RETURNED
At seven p. m.,and found his wife in this

Several burglaries occurred on
Wednesday night and Thurs
day morning, but tho booty
secured by the thieves was not
considerable. They yisited Mr. C. Hanuy,
but were tightened away before gaining
entrance to the house. At Al. Sloo's
they were more successful. They got
into the house and carried off a few ar
ticles of value. Nxt they weut to the
residence ot Mayor Winter on
Seventh street, and one of them
was in the act ot getting In at the window
when he was discovered by his honor,
who went for him. The fellow got away
and jumped back on the fence near tho
w indow, when his honor made another
reach for him, when the burglar fell be
tween the house and fence. His lionor
called for his pop gun, but before it could
be brought to him Mr. Thiet had
kicked a board off the
fence and succeeded in mak
in his e cape. The mayor says the thief
was a profane cuss; that he called
him all kinds of pet names, and ro
questcd him to go to a place supposed to
be even hotter than Cairo In mid-summer.
His honor won't go of course, but
it he had got hold of his pop-gun in time
he would have sent his thielship there.
No clue to the thieves.

The Debria of the Nyatem
Must either pass through its natural
channels of exit, the bowels, the kidneys
and the pores, or, in delault thereof,
poison and disorder the fluids of the sys
tem. In order to effect the complete ex
pulsion of this dangerous refuse, the
organs through which it' passes off must
be active and unobstructed. Fortunately
there is a certain means of rendering
them so when they are not. Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters stimulate tho action of
the excretory organs, and by diffusing a
genial warmth through the circulation,
encourage moderate perspiration. By
this triple effect the exodus of tho loecal
and other waste matters are encouraged,
and the system treed from peril it would
otherwise incur. The action of the

dull since the date of our last report, and
transactions lu all leading articles has
been light. The southern markets arc all
full, and as a consequence the shipping
demand has decreased very materially
within the last few days. Reports lrom
New Orleans report an overstock of flour
ou the market there, ami a shipment of
2,500 bbls. to New York is announced.
There Is a fair probability that the next
few days Will mark a decline In the price
of nearly all kinds ol grain and produce.

to make concessions, arc ot the opinion
that the decline in prices will not be
near so great as buyers believe they will.

number of showers have fallen
within tho last few days.
Planting has been somewhat retarded on
account of wet weather.

changed 30 cents per dry barrel and 15
cents per cwt.
