account of the trouble experienced bv
Sheriff Sail p and his deputies in obtaining
jurors. 0ving to tho statute law, which
exempts a man from serving: as jurer
when a member of a fire company, It has
almost become impossible to get piries in
many cases, and occasions very often
considerable loss of time to the court, be
sides extra expense to the county. It is
certainly an injurious law to the people,
and one which we think demands the at
tention cl our legislators. A new depar
ture was taken last week, when several
colored men were subpoenaed as jurors,
two of whom served, each upon different
ca.'CS. Since that time the colored troops
have responded nobly, and the court
room is now daily filled with those who
are anxious to sacrillce their time aud
talents, in administering justice for the
people, The criminal docket has not
been half ilisposed of jet, and it will
probably consume the whole of this
week, at least.
Simon Taylor struck Cairo on Mon
day night. Simon is an exceedingly ar
dent young man, hailing from tho rural
districts of Tennessee, and has bad but a
very limited experience in the wicked
ways of this awludy wickul world. Ho
was too late on Monday evening to catch
tbeJunFisk lor Pa lucah. from which
place he wanted to go to Nashville, and
consequently he went to the Delta House
io put ui lor the night. Ycxtcrdiy
morning Simon went out to see the
sights, and after rambling about lor
hours, brought up at the big wharlboat,
engineered by Ilulliday aud Phillips.
Here Simon met up with a very nice
young man, wdm had his baggage
checked for Paducah, and was also wait
ing the arrival of iho Fisk. He was just
that moment, the moment when ho met
Simon, on his way to have a bill changed,
and probably Simon could change It for
him. Simon didn't have enough money
to change the bill, but ut the request of
the nice young man. "bo -rowed" him
four dollars. They were both going to
Paducah on the same boat,
and he 'could pay the money back
ns soon as they got on board, Simon
gave the nice young man the four dol
lars, put .tho two remaining little ten
cent pieces in his pocket, and set down
to await the return of his friend, who
would return as soon as he had paid
freight on his baggage. Long and pa
tiently did Simon wait, but his friend did
not come, and suddenly the recollection
that ho had "once on a time hern tell o'
tellersjplayiu, that kind a tricks on strang
ers," dashed upon him, aad he sought
police headquarters In all possible haste,
and told Chief Charley Arter his woeful
story. Yesterday afternoon the chlil
arrested the party whom he susplcloncd
of having robbed Simon of his llttlo "roll'
but when he went to look lor Simon,
ho was no where to bo found, and now
he Is in a query as to what he shall do
with the prisoner.

A very daring escape of two convicts

perate robbers, sentenced for six years,

Ironed and manacled together by the
feet. As the train was leaving Tolono
they asked to go into the car closet and
were led in by the sheriff, who held the
door shut from the outside. After a few
moments he tried to open the door but
found it locked, but found on going out of
the car they had escaped by the window
on to the platform and Irom there leaped
to the grouud. Detective Rittenho ise oi
Champaign and the sheriff organized a
company and are searching for tho crim
inals, and it Is thought will catch them.
A rew ird of fifty dollars Is oflered for
