Tbe Turners have concluded to give

-It the city authorities tlctlte to avoid
trouble, And perhaps save tbe city from
being compelled to pay damages for half
doaen broken legs, we would advise them
to see to It that lights are put up In the
night time at such places at the sidewalks
are torn up tor repairs. Notwithstanding
tbe dense darkness ol laat night, there
was nothing to murk the place where the
sidewalk is tutu upon Commercial avenue
near litli street, and It Is s great wonder
that some one was not burt.
We felt that our Christinas was a
bappy one whan we compared our health
and seeming luxury to that of a poor,
sick, diseased, and God-bereft lemale, to
whom our attention was called early on
the morning ol tbe 20tb, lying In a box
ear on tbe levee barely aMe to speak and
almost trozen. ' We circulated our sym
pathizing words among the lookers-on
and raised for her 50 cents. Poor hu
manity; nobody would believe that it
could siuk into such degradation. May
tbe angel of death rescue us or any ol
ours trom such a fate.
A siJewalk reaching troin Commer
cial to Washington avenue on
Twenty-Eighth or Twenty-Sixth streets is
much needed. Persons wishing to cross
from one aveuue to another In the vicin
ity of Twenty-seventh street, will be re
quired to come down as tar as Twentieth
street, or go up as tar as Thirty-Fourth
street, to accomplish their desire, and
then after walking six or seven blocks up
or down, out of tbe way, they will have
to walk the same distance bn the other
avenue. This is a very great Inconveni
ence, and Instead of rebuilding the walk
on Thirty-fourth street, which is but lit
tle benefit to any one it would be well to
construct one on Twenty-Eighth street
from avenue to avenue.
Married. In this city, yesterday at
noon, at the residence ol the bride's lath
er, Mr. Samuel S. Foster, ot St. Iiuls, to
Miss Josle A. PbUlls, daughter ot Capt.
John B. Pbillis, ot this city.
This announcement will no doubt be a
surprise to many of lha Iriends of Mr.
Foster and his amiable and accomplished
bride; not that ihe marriage was not ex
pected to take place at some time, and that
soon, but that It was so quiet and that so
few people knew anything about 1U There
was no one present at the marriage but
tbe family and a few of the relatives of
the bride. 'The marriage ceremony was
performed by Rev. George of the Presby
terian church. Mr. and Mrs, Foster left
by tbe Illinois Central yesterday after- j
noon lor a visit to St. Louis, Chicago and
other points in the nortn west, alter
which will return to St. Louis.their future

friends in this city uf both Mr. Foster and
his wife will Join us in tbe wish that the

Fatally Shot. A most distressing
accident, by which a lad only twelve
years of age named Aden, lost his lite.
happened only a short distance trom tbe
residence of Mr. John Bishop, in Goose
Island precinct on Christmas day. The
paatioulars of the sad event, as we learn
them, seem to be about these : On Christ
mas day Aden, accompanied by a young
son of Mr. Bishop's, went out to
shoot quail, and had gone only a short
distance trom tbe house when they sat
down on a tug, at the same time Waning
their guns up agsinst the log. How it
happened neither of tbe boys could ex
plain, but by some means one ot the guns
was knocked down, and In tbe fall it was
discharged, and almost Its entire contents
ot shot lodral in Aden's bowels, Inflict
ing what the physician called to attend
the boy pronounced a fatal wound. Aden
was still living on Wednesday. 'The
other boy was not Injured.
Waxts to Lecture. We are in receipt
ot a letter from Hon. W. W. Randall, of
Champaign, Illinois, who desires to de
liver his lecture on "How tbe other halt
ot the world lives, or Life In South
America." Mr. Randall was for many
years consul of the United States to
Chili, and spent some years in traveling
in Peru, Chilli, Equador, the Argentine
Republic, and many other seotions ot
that country, and bis lecture is spoken of
In complimentary terms wherever
delivered. Mr. Randall is going to
Memphis, New Orleans, and other south
ern cities on a lecturing tour, and it ar
rangements can be made would stop In
Cairo on the way down.

effect on business, not only here but in all
parts ot the country. The roads have
been and are in the wo-at possible condl

warm weather has rendered the trade In

very little food lor stock It required. The
weather here continues wet and gloomy,
