John Puekett, a carpenter sixty-three
years old, and for years a residentofthiscity,
met with nn accident yesterday morning al Knit
eight o'clock which, we regret to say, will
probably end in death. He was engaged
on tho building now in courso of erection
by Mr. W. G. Cary, on the corner of Fourth
ami Walnut, streets. In the course of the
work it fell to his share to set a door frame.
This was on the evening before the accident
occurred. Is appears that on resuming
work yesterday morning he supposed that
ho hud completed that particular talk; but,
fatally for him, he neglected nailing the
bottom of one of the studding. Outside
and about a foot below the door a scaffold
ing had been improvised. In attempting
to swing himself upon this he caught at
the studding, which, being loose, gave
way, precipiting him head foremost
to the ground. Mr. Cary, who was present,
immediately went to his assistance and
found him lying insensible. The injured
man was removed to his residence, and the
services of Dr. Parker secured. It is said
his collar-bone was broken, and he sus
tained other serious injuries about the head,
ueck and shoulders. At about 8 o'clock
lust evening we were informed he wa in a
very critical condition and ere this reaches
our readers he may have pussird away. As
has been stated, Mr. Purkett was an old
man and the father of a large family, who
have the sympathy of the community in
The souls of the young "bloods" of
Cairo arc thrilled with excitement over the
pending skatoriul contest. In the prosper
ous days of tho venerable Roman republic
its patrician youth backed their judgment
with the dollars of their duds on gladiatorial
contests; the Athenian youth assembled in
the public square of the hub of the
universe tih-1 warmed their noble
blood and battered their aristo
cratic shins in the manly exercises of foot
ball and "shinny;" the young dons of Cas
tile sought the excitement so congenial to
high-spirited natures in bull-baiting and in
romantic adventure; their Parisian proto
types of the present day find their highest
enjoyment in the pleasures of the the Jar
din Mabille and the can-can; but ,i myste
rious providence, in its inscrutable way, has
left it to our young men to run to skates
on rollers. This method of tiring the blood
litis its advantages, although they may not
be apparent to the naked eye at first glance.
There is nothing in it that would tend to
harden tho human heart; cruelty to ani
mals (quadrupeds, we mean) has no share in
it ; the demoralizing elements of adventure
are not there; the pleasures of the cup are
superseded by cooling draughts of straight
cistern water. It is a prudent sport. If ac
cident should happen, it invariably falls to
that part of the human frame which any
student of human anatomy will tell you is
best endowed with powers of suffering and
endurance. The utter innocence and harm
lessness of the pastime, aside from its pro
motion of the intellectual faculties, should
commend itself to the patronage, at least,
of those w hose age mid limbs forbid a par
ticipation in it. By all means, then,
let us encourage skating on rollers;
but that feature which involves late
hours should be eliminated. In our ex
perience wc have discovered that nine
o'clock is as late an hour as a youth
should be permitted uway from the pater
nal roof. An infraction of this rule should
invariably be met with sound, but judic
ious, spunking, and after that the victim

And yet what profits it us the fact be

For lis, as well let all this sweetness be

gathered under the eye of the master of
the perfumer's art, and that by his skill the
distinctive odors in all perfection aru ex

A FI M. AND COMVltKIIENsIVE STATEMENT
OK THE AMOl'ST, AND A CI.EAll EXPOSI
TION OF AM. THE FEATURE OF THE PHO
The most important question affecting tho
interests of the tax-payers of this city ut
present is that of adjusting tho debt with
which our people are burdened, which iu
its present enormous proportions amounts to
a claim upon every man's property in tho
city of almost 40 per cent, of tho assess
ed value thereof. The best method of get
ting rid of this monstrous load has been
the subject of much comment among our
people for the past two years, some of whom
have advocated the plan of fighting with
the aid of the law, to the bitter end, nil the
bonds that might have any question what
ever as to their legality. Others have said
the resistance should be confined to tho rail
road bonds, which seem to be, of til 1
bonds, the most unpopular with peo
ple; while others have doubtin -ly
shook their heads and with ," c' i '
sigh said: "We'll have nil nl' Uie ooiuls
with interest topays.une time; this lighting
the tax levy will give temporary relief, but
we'll have it till to pay in the end." The
city authorities have not for the past two
years levied any tuxes for interest, giiing
as a reason in justification of their course
that the burdens of taxation were so great
for the cost of maintaining our city gov
ernment, repairing broken levees, etc., that
it would be useless to attempt the collec
tion of nn additional tux t r interest pur
poses; that the people would refuse to pay
such a tax and the whole revenue thereby
defeated. Those directing the financial af
fairs of the city government have insist id
that the best and proper way to become re
lieved of a part of our debt would be
through a compromise; that Fl was plain tT
everyone that we were overloaded with
debt and could not pay it all. "With this
in view the Council 'n June last issued the
following circular to bondholders:
To the IIoIiIitk ofr.onils of the City ofCalro: Tho

J. I). PIIIU.IS, City Clerk.
To this circular numerous individual re
plies were made, but no concerted action
was had on the part of the bondholders that
the city authorities were ever utilised of.
In Februiuy last a proposition was received
from a St. Louis firm desiring to undertake
a conipromi.se of our bonded 'debt upon a
basis of (i.'n 70 cents on ho dollar of the
present debt. This proposition, the Finunce
Committee did not enteuain, believing that
any adjustment of our debt bused upon a
larger sum that oO per cent, of the existing
sum, principal and interest, could not be
carried into effect. In March Mr. T.
W. Halliilny, the Chairman of the
Finance Committee of the City Council,
was called upon by Mr. E. P.
Leland, representing the Feuding Associa
tion of United States, composcii of leading
bunkers of New York, founded for the
purpose of arranging compromises between
mi'i'icipalities and bondholders. A rter re
peated interviews the Finunce Coiiimitte ami
Mr. behind have agreed upon a basis of com
promise which the Association he represents
is willing to undeilake to cutty out. To
enable, our renders to fully understand the
results of this proposed comproniiBn we
give below all the b't'oi iiiui'on we could
obtain jn regard thereto.

The arrangement agreed upon, which

Council and to ratification by the votci
provides for the issuance of 270,000 new
bonds by the city, bearing six per cent.

to be made on the principal after four yours,
so that the whole debt will be extinguished
within twenty years,' by the payment of
six per cent of the flew debt for four years
and ten per cent for lil'teen and one half
years; or to illustrate more forcibly the
debt will be absolutely wiped out by the
payment for four years of three per cen

five per centum of the present debt.
There secnw t'i be an objection by some
of our people to the plan of puj'ng any of

should t.'ko can.' of that. Th's is, it seems

AN AST0XISMX0 FACT.
A largo proportion of the American pen.
plu are to-day sulfering from the effects of
Dyspepsia, or disordered liver. The result
of these diseases upon the masses of intel
ligent and valuable people is most alarm
ing, making life actually a burden instead
of a pleasant existence of enjoyment and
usefulness, as it ought to be. There is no
good reason for this, if you will only throw
aside prejudice and skepticism, take the
advice of druggists and your friends, and
try one bottle of Green's August Flower.
Your speedy relief is certain. Millions of
bottles of this medicine have been given
away to try its virtues, with satisfactory re
sults in every case. You can buy a sam
ple bottle for ten cents to try. Three doses
will relieve the worst case. Positively sold
