from $1 to $25, we wended our way
through the boss rain and sleet of the
season, out to the Opera Festival in Cincinnati,
Tuesday night. We stood in the
edge of the door and craned our neck
over 5,000 people for about ten minutes
and heard Soliforino Bullhi and Susan
De Patti sing a portion of a prosy drama

The floods have been general
throughout several states. Licking
river was out of it's banks from
to Covington Wednesday and
Thursday, and thousands of acres of farm
lands were flooded. In many cornfields
the water stood half way over the shocks,
while thousands of panels of fence have
been swept away. Stoner, Hinkston,
Houston and other creeks in this county
were higher than they have been for
many years. There being a sheet of ice
all over the face of the earth, the steady
rain all rushed into the creeks instead of
soaking into the ground.

act as cavalry, and the poor fellows came
near di owning in the drenching rain and
Bwolen creeks. Sergeant Hammons, of
Midway became crazed with quinine and
shot his horse through the ear, but

guns. Some citizen roughs drew pistols

to camp, but peace was proclaimed without
forning the troops into line of battle.
Lew VANDEn, of the Crawford House,
Cincinnati, has invented the boss fire-escape
of all so far invented. He has

in such a manner that guests on each floor
can step out on them and make their
exit in perfect safety. ' A red light is
hung by the doorway to steps on each
floor, and an ax is swinging there for the
purpose of bursting down the doors. A
card explaining the red lights and the
way to the fire-escape is placed in each
guest's room. Besides all this, there are
several long ladders for the benefit of
the fools who never read cards, newspapers
and other literature whereby the
necessary elements of human happiness
and even life hangs on a slender thread
