CAIRO BULLETIN: SATURDAY MORNING, JULY
A LITTLE FOCn-VEAU OLD GIRL DUO W MED
IS A CISTERN.
In tho rear addition to tho Vicksburg
House, on Commercial avenue, is a room
used for sleeping purposes. This room was
evidently constructed over a cistern, for in
tho center of the floor is a trap-door, or
covering to it. Between eight and nine
o'clock last night, Annio Workman, a
bright and handsome little four-year old
girl, daughter of Mrs. Workman who is em
ployed as cook in tho house, was seated on
this trap-door, untying her shoes preparatory
io going to bed. It seems tho trap was
ajar, or it was not securely fastened, and
the little ono in leaning back, tilted it on
end, and was precipitated backward into
cistern. A little boy, sitting near her, in
stantly gave the alarm and many of the
boarders hurried to tho spot. In the confu
sion which followed, running hither and
thither for lights, ropes, and ladders, it was
fully fifteen or twenty minutes before a de
scent was made. A ladder was used, and
a colored man, who volunteered to go
down, got hold of the child at one time, but
for some inexplicable reason abandoned Ids
hold, ami the child again sunk to the lot
tom. At least ten or fifteen minutes more
elapsed before the lifeless body was brought
to tho surface and handed to those
above in waiting for it. Tho delay
in rccoverinL' tho body seems almost
inexcusable in tho light of the
fact that there was not more than five and
a half feet of water in the cistern. It would
be unjust to attach any blame to the men
who went to tho child's rescue, for they
labored hard and earnestly, but the fact still
remains that their work was misdirected
and badly managed. Dr. Gordon was in
waiting and took the little ono in hand at
once, but all his lalwr, assisted by others,
and prolonged for alout three-quarters of
an hour, as in vain. Life was totally ex
tinet when the child was recovered,
but every effort was made to
rekindle any vital spark that might have
lingered in her. The mother in a feiut in
one corner of the parlor; women screaming
and children crying and running confus
edly in every direction; the physician try
ing to restore life, all combined to make a
distressing and inexpressibly sad scene
Crowds were attracted to the house and
lingered about it ufter the physician had
abandoned h;s task ami taken his depart
nm. Tho child was well known in the
neighWhood for its precocity and beauty,
and was a general favorite.

Skins -People who will still adhero to

doctor sometimes express not a little curios
ity in regard to Dr. It. V. Pierce's original
method of dlstlmuishing all forms of
chronic disease without personal consultii'
tion. Some oven supiswe that he lu com
plishes this through clairvoyance, or some
otltcr species of professional Jugglery, All
this is utterly false. He claims to deter
mine disease by the rational methods of
science only. Suys Comly, in his Biographi
cul Encyclopedia of New York State,
speaking of this distinguished physician:
"He perceived that in each of the natural
sciences the iuvestigator proceeds according
to a system of signs. Tho geologist in his
cabinet accurately determines and describes
the cleft of rock, which ho has never seen,
from tho minute specimen on his table.
And tho chemist in his laboratory notes tho
constituents of tho sun with tho same pre
cision that ho analyses a crystal of rock
salt. Tho analogous sytem developed by
Dr. Pierce in medical science is worthy of
his genius, and has made his namo justly
celebrated." For a full explanation of this

Last evening Nez Pcrces scouts, under
Lieutenant Williams, accompanied by white
scouts belonging to Colonel Sanford's com
mand, went into camp on North Powder.
While sitting around the camp-fire all dress

captain of a voluuteer company, who had
seen tl party cuter thw timber, fired two
shots into the scouts from a tree about sixty
yards distant, killing ono of tho Ne Purees
scouts and mortally wounding another.
Tho Nez Perce are much incensed at Haines,
and it was with much difficulty the white
scouts and Lieutenant Williams could re
strain them from killing him at once. The
Indians were rendering very efficient
service ami now they will scarcely continue
longer in the service. It is feared this will
also drive the I'matillas from the field. At
