PARK DURING THF. DAY AMI)
GRAND 81'CCKSS OF THE CEI.KMtATION CN
DEll THE AUSPICES OF TnE K. M. K. C
THE TUl'ItNAM EST OF THE FINE COM PA
MES SHOOTING CONTEST, RACES, ETC.
The Fourth clearly demonstrated tho fact
that when Cain) presents tho proper at
tractions it can always command a throng
of visitors. Tho estimate as t the number
of strangers in the city vary from twenty
five hundred to four thousand, but some of
our railroad officials, whose means of infor
mation arc excellent, say it can safely be
put down at thirty-live hundred.
The procession made an excellent show
ing. Crowds of people watched it nUuig
the lino of march, and tUc verdict was
unanimous that it was arranged with care
and faithfully carried out as to details, and
was in all respects what the Knights prom
ised to make it a grand parade. Where
all appeared so well it would be invidious
to make distinctions.
AT TUE r-AHK.
Shortly alter noon tho people benn to
wend their way to the park on foot and in
all manner of conveyances, and by two
o'clock at least fifteen hundred people were
on the grounds. Tho oratorical exercises
were omitted, for the reason, probably, that
the gentlemen announced to speak were ab
sent from the city. Miss Luella Fraser
read the Declaration of Independence, after
which the crowd seperated to enjoy
themselves according to their inclinations.
The younger portion of the gathering
sought the dancing pavilion, where a color
ed band furnished those partial to that kind
of amusement with good music. To the
children, the "Flying Dutchman" seemed
to afford infinite pleasure, while the staid
and elderly folks found recreation in sha
dy spots. It was a gratifying feature of
the day's celebration that in a somew hat
extended observation during the day and
night not one case of drunken, boisterous
or disorderly conduct was seen on the
This part of tho day's programme was so
seriously interfered with by the heavy rains
which had fallen at intervals during the
two or three days preceding
the Fourth that it was entirely
abandoned. Several races, however, were
made up among the lovers of this sport,
aud a half-mile dash between the Kynaston
horse and a Kentucky horse was an ex
citing ami well contested race. They came
up tho stretch in good style. Kynaston
leading the Kentucky horse aliout nine feet
as he passed the judges' stand. Besides
this there were two scrub races, ktween
ponies, which made up in fun what they
lacked in pretensions to speed and lottom.
TnE SHOOTI.NO CONTEST.
The gentlemen engaged in this trial of
marksmanship selected the pleasantest
spot on the grounds for their meeting place,
and crowds of people flocked
thither and remained until the close
of the sport. The three contestants who
broke ten bulls out often, divided tho first
prize between them. Those who tied on
nine balls out of ten, divided the second
prize. Likewise the contestants who broke
eight, seven, six nnd five balls each. There
was no "shooting off to see who would
come out ahead of all. The score below
shows how the conUst closed.

THE ENGINE TOCItNAMKNT.
The shoot over, the great bulk of the
people left the park for Washington avenue
in the vicinity of the brewer-, where, it was
announced, the tournament of the lire com
panies would take place. In the contest
between the large engines, the Roughs and
Deltas alone participated. The former
were victorious, beating their opponents
two feet eleven inches throwing a stream
Id.) feet five inches. For the smaller class
of engines tho Roughs and Arabs were en
tered, and in this contest likewise the
Roughs were the winners, throwing 117 feut
seven inches, beating the Arabs about tw
feet. Of course they were elated over tlie
result of the tourney, and, of course, tl
vanquished were correspondingly tie
pressed; but this feeling on th
part of the latter lasted only
few moments. They have taken fresh
courage unto themselves, and tho Roughs
will have to look well to their laurels.
('apt. W. P. Halliday and Messrs. N. B.
liustiewooM ami r . A. Miller, acted as
judges. This terminated the daylight part
of the programme, and
KAtil.Y AFTKK DAllK
the park again became tho object of rendez
vous. The crowd of , tho day was trebled,
and while the night was hot, occasional
breezes did much to make it endurable.
Every available spot in tho vicinity of the
dancing and refreshment stands was occu
pied, as was also a large portion of the
space in the vicinity of where the fireworks
were being worked off tuto space.
The first piece, a motto, "July 4th," in lance
letters, was followed by the Diamond
Stas, which was succeded by thoTolka Bat
tery, Liberty Tree, Chaplet of Roses, Pris
matic Wheel, Silver Fountain," Cross of
Malta, Gnllopado and "Good Night," in
largo letters accompanied by myriads of
stars, cannon reports, etc. Tho fireworks
over, large numbers of those who could not
dance, and would not if they could, started
for their homes, leaving the young people
and the band in sole possession of the
grounds. The dancing was kept up until
an early hour yesterday morning.
INCIDENTS OF TnE DAY.
The little roan horse of Mr. Smith
Torrencc became frightened while going
around the track, ran away, threw its driv
er, and materially damaged the sulky to
which it was attached.
Tho Kentucky gentlemen who own
trained horseflesh attempted to pull the
wool over the eyes of the Cairo gentlemen
who own trained horseflesh. But the thing
wouldn't work, and Kentucky got beat in
the only race run.
The arWs and other secluded places
of the park afforded fine opportunities for
trysting matters. Ami the opportunities
were by no means lost. Spooney couples
were as thick as blackberries along the liue
of theC. & V. R.R.
It was noticeable that our visitors, on
the Fourth, with a few exceptions, were all
from counties in this end of the State.
The delegation from Missouri and Ken
tucky were unusually small. This is ac
counted tor by the fact that neighboring
towns in those States had local celebrations.
A colored woman started from the
park about nine o'clock, got half way
down town, when sho discovered she had
lost something. It was her child. She
hastened back to tho park, making her
lamentations along the route exceedingly
distressing to those who had the misfortune
to hear them. She found her cherub under
a tree oblivious of the sport going on
alwut it picked it up and fondled it for a
while. It then seemed to strike her with
great stddenness that it was somehow the
young one's fault, and the music that
midget howled out upon the midnight air,
under the inspiration of its mamma was

PERSONAL AND NOTIONAL.
According to Douglas Jerold, Ben But
ler lielongs to the Jenks, as she has dis
covered that "he's just beautiful, and when
he smiles, perfectly lovely."
"Ion" intimates that London ladies are
enormous consumers of Sherry, and that
their potations figure largely in their gro

The famous artiste Mario and Grisi
earned professionally fully $l,'i00.000, and
yet a subscription for the relief of the
former is now circulating in Europe.
Of course the Nationals will lie cheer

cisco, and will uot fail to profit by the en
couragement it gives.
As George Alfred Townsend never was
right as to any question of fart, and
events id ways falsify his predictions, it is
to bo feared that "lily-livered Sam" will

A SlXItETION THAT CONTAMINATES THE
Buxm. When the bile is diverted from
its proper channels, into the blood, which
is always th c:ise in liver complaints, it
ceases to le a healthy secretion, and be
comes a poison. Its abnormal presence in
the circulation and stomach is indicated by
the suffusion of the skin with a hideous
saffron tinge, by head:u lus, vertigo, nausea,
pain in the right side and under the right
shoulder blade, by indigestion, obstruction
of the bowels, and other minor symptoms.
Order may be substituted for this state of
chaos, and further lxidily evil averted by
using the beneficent alterative and tonic.

laxing the bowels, promotes the escape
from the circulation of bilious impurities;
besides rendering the action of the liver

anti-bilious medicine is not only infinitely
mom effective than any form of mercury,
but is on account of its freedom from hurt
ful properties, infinitely to lie preferred to
that poisonous drug.
