Monday evening ran off the track near

Eia'o. Odd Fellows. A correspon
dent of the Jonesboro Gazette writing
from Kleo, states that the loss to the
Odd Fellows at that pla"e by the late
tire, was only one hundred dollars.
This Is incorrect. The lodge lost nearly
lour hundred dollars by the fire. In
this connection we may state that the
lodge will be in working order again
within a few weeks. They have rented
new quarters in the Jones, building, and
are having it got ready lor occupation
with all possible speed. Several
of the neighboring lodges have
come to their assistance aud rendered
them substantial aid. The lodge pro
poses to celebrate the 2Gth of April, the
anniversary of the introduction of Odd
Fellowship in this country, and intend
extending invitations to neighboring
lodges to vUIt them on that day.
A Pacuinu Establishment. A pork

(basement of City National Bank build

and the trade generally with anything
and everything In the line ot "hog pro
ducts." Capt. Wright has a large stock
on hand, and parties ordering from hiin
will be supplied promptly in any quan
tity, cither loose or packed, at current
market rates. It is but right that Cairo
merchants should deal with Cairo es
tablishments, and as Capt. Wright has
opened a first-class Bupply depot, and is
prepared to S2ll as low as the same goods
can be purchased elsewhere, he should
receive a liberal patronage.
A Palace of Crime. Mrs. J. J.
Brooks, who pretends to be a widow,
and w ho has for some time lived on a
farm nine miles this side of Goloonda,
lately sold her farm and bought a tug
eighty-three feet In length and about
twelve feet In width, and arrived In our
city therewith last Saturday. The name
ot tho boat is 0.11. Pierce, and it lays near
the point below Halllday Bros, ware
house. Our reporter hearing that it was
tho intention of the proprietress to make
the boat one of the tree and easy kind, in
tcrvewed the lady hersel I. In aus wer to the
question what trade Blie Intended to put
the boat Into, she replied : " In whatever
1 can make the most money at." We
asked her what she thought that was?
to which sho replied that men of our city
had advised her to put girls on board the
boat and also keep a bar, and she thought
that by so doing sho could make as
much money as at anything else. She
Inlonucd us that sho had plenty ot fire
arms on board, was a sure shot, and
was not afraid to go to jail. It is her
intention to havo an engineer and pilot
on board, ami be ready at any lime to
escape the processes of our courts when
ever she chooses to do so. Men who
know her, say that in every respect
she Is an extremely dangerous woman.
Haunts of wickedness and dens ot crime
in tho very heart of our city are already
too numerous, and one as corrupt and
dangerous as this woman, who plots
against Justice in the manner she does,
should Immediately be gotten rid ot by
our authorities. Such women have been
too leniently dealt with, and they have
thereby, been encouraged, It is high
time the law bo enforced. Let tho officers
do their duty before it Is too late.

' Was Hr. Biecbeb? Yesterday alter.
noon the attention ol the levee mer
chants aud many others was directed to
a man whose every, feature resembled
those of Henry Ward Bcechcr, He bad
arrived from Chicago and was with two
ladies and a girl ot about fourteen,
promenading up and down the levee,
waiting lor the Mississippi Central train.
He had registered nowhere, and the re
port rapidly spread that Beecher was
la the city. Everybody was star
ing at him, but none vestured
to address him. We soon became aware
that It was our dlsagreeablo duty to
approach this man, and a thousand
different ways were suggested to us, Not
having a superabundance of cheek, we
consented to write him a polite note,
which we did alter he and the ladles bad
entered a car of the Mississippi Cen
tral tram. He read our note without
a change in his intelligent face, and alter
having finished it, smiled, and In a mat
ter ot course way handed it to the little
girl, who, seeming to understand his
Bralle, wrote the following note :
"There is a great resemblance, and
many make the same mistake, but it is
not lie. What is his name V Dr. J. M.

In order to guard against results ut
terly subversive of health, it is absolute
ly essential that the grand tboroughlare
or avenue of the system, the bowels,
should bo re-opened as speedily as pos
sible when tbey become ebstructed. If
they are not, tne bile is misdirected Into
the blood ; the liver becomes torpid ;
viscid bullous matter gets Into the stom
ach, and produces indigestion ; head
aches ensue, and other symptoms are
ptoduced, which a prolongation ot the
exciting cause only tends to aggravate.
The aperient properties of Uostetter's
Stomach Bitters constitute a most useful
agent In overcoming constriction of the
bowels, and promoting a regular habit
of body. It is infinitely superior to the
drastic cathartics frequently used for the
1 purpose, since it does not, like them, act
violently, but produces a natural, pain
less ellect, which does; not impair the
tone of the evacuatory organs, which it
invigorates instead of weakening, The
stomach and liver, also, indeed Ibe en
tire system, I- strengthened aud regu
lated by it.

In our style ot climate, with Its sudden

It Is not advisable for any of us to over
task our energies, corporeal or mental,
but in the eager pursuit ot wealth or
famo or knowledge, how many transgress
this salutary rule, It must be a matter
of great importance to all who do so to
know how they caa regain the vigor so
recklessly expended. The remedy Is
neither costly or difficult to obtain. Uos
tetter's Stomach Bitters Is procurable in
every city, town and settlement In
America, and it compensates for a drain
of bodily or mental energy more effec
tually than any invigorant ever pre
scribed or advertised. Laboring men,

clergymen, physicians, all bear testimony
to Its wondrousiy renovating powers.

"A ItM'LY TO IXGEKNOfX FROM A
At the Atheneum, Tuesday eve.. Feb. l'J.
Asa fascinating orator, logioal reason-
cr, an accomplished scholar and a peeis
less aud Invincible assailant, Wendling
is, at the bar and In politics, the peer of
Hon. Georgo It. Wendling delivered
bis great lecture in reply to Ingersoll,
at Library Hall, in the city ol St, Louis,
January loth, 1873, to an audience ot
over 2,000 ot the most cultured and In
elligent people ot that city, and hun
dreds stood in the aisles during its de
livery, not a person, to our knowledge,
leaving the hall. The result was a com
plete success, culminating in a perfect
ovation. He was immediately ottered
$500.00 to repeat the same lecture in that
city, which he did, with similar results.
A third Invitation has alrvady followed
tblB, and lie has since received invitations
from such cities as Mt. Vernon, Bloom
intrton, HI., Lafayette, Indianapolis, liid.,
Chicago, Milwaukee, New York, Wash
ington, D. C., etc.
Mr. Wendling being an eminent law
yer, a ripe scholar, a profound thinker
and logician, he is especially fitted to
answer Col. Ingersoll in his assaults upon

pound, Dr. Morris' Syrup of Tar, Wild
Cherry and llorehound, for coughs,
