conveniences known to fishermen. It is
capital boat for tho purpose. Can't be beat
in fact. Mr. Colo has christened it the "W

of Cairo, Illinois, who had such splendid
luck catching black buss in our river last
season that ho is coining up soon to try it

On Sunday morning last Marshal Arter
received a dispatch from C. E. Stallman
Columbus, giving a description of a negro
named William McDowell, who had left
that place on the steamer Vint. Shinkle, and
who was charged by Stallman with robbing
him of altout seventy dollars in money. Tho
Marshal arrested McDowell as he was step
ping from tho lwnt at our levee and lodged
him in jail. A senrch resulted in the rceov
ery of twenty dollars of the stolen money

Mr. S. during the hitter's absence, and says
the charge that he took more than that is
not true. Columbus officials advised our

Marshal Arter yesterday began the
impounding of stock running at largo in
violation of the city ordinances. He is the
most unpopular man, with certain classes,
in Cairo to-day, and it is perfectly safe to
say that there will not be a hair between
him and heaven if certain bellige
women, the owners of vagrant hogs, can
lay their hands upon him. Just now his
position is attended with peculiar hardships.
Yesterday he went to a well-known citizen
and told him that his horse, which was
few yards distant and running at large,
would bo impounded if his owner did not
take him up. He was laughed at for his
pains. In a few moments the horse was cap
tured and carried off to thcjpound, while up.

For a few moments on Saturday night
a certain household in this city was the
sccno of tho wildest excitement. When
the good couple of the house retired for the
night they were certain the pet of the family
was in its accustomed place in its
crib, sleeping tho sleep of innocent
childhood. Some hours afterward the
mother awoke, gazed at the crib, and to
her horror it was vacant. Tho alarm pe
culiar to such a statoof things was given by
the mother, paterfamilias was roughly
aroused from his slumbers, and a search at
once instituted. Of course the mother run
to tho window. Under it on the ground
below, tho soft rays of the moon fulling
upon its pallid faco and lifeless form, waa
her darling. Then there was another
alarm that awoke tho echoes of the neigh
hood. It also awoke an animato and very
lively being lying on tho floor at tho foot of
the bed. It was tho genuine darling, and the
poor, pallor stricken thing lying under tho
window was a peculiarly shaped clump of
grass, which tho overwrought imagination
of tho excited mother had molded into the
lineaments and figure of her child. Tho
father is now contemplating tho various
phases of tho human mind as revealed in
woman under a high state of excitement.
SunEsT Tranquilizer of the Nerveb
Tho surest tranquilizer of tho nerves is a
medicino which remedies their supersensi
tiveness by invigorating them. Over-tension
of tho nerves always weakens them.
What they need, then, is a tonic, not a seda
tive. Tho latter is only useful when thero
is iutonso mental excitement and an immo-
liato necessity exists for producing
quietude of tho brain. Hostetter's Stomach
Bitters restores tranquility of tho nerves by
endowing them with tho vigor
requisite to bear, without being jarred or
disturbed unhcalthfully, tho ordinary im
pressions produced through the media of
sight, houring and reflections. Nay, it does
more than this it enables them to sustain
a degreo of tension from mental application
which they would Imi totally unable to en
dure without its assistance Such at least

tioned tho Doctor's ability to cure catarrh
or consumption, and stated that a friend had

Friend A. i
In reply to yours, just received, asking
what effect Dr. Pierce's medicino had on me,
would say, three years ago I expected to
dio with consumption. I had long suffered
with catarrh, my throat and lungs were
badly affected and my system was rapidly
breaking down, I had tried many physicians
and remedies without benefit. Having seen
good results follow the use of Dr. Pierce's
Medicines, I resolved to giro thorn a thor
ough trial. In six months timo I was en
tirely cured. No medicines stand higher,
in my estimation, than Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery and Dr. Sago's Catarrh
Remedy. They not only saved my life, but
have mudo mo a hearty and strong man.

ME MKETINO AT THE COUnT-IIOCSIt T.A8T
MQHT TUB "tlLOATKD BONDHOLDERS
AND NATIONAL HANKS COME IN FOR i
ROUND SHARE OP ARUSE ADDRESSES BY
MESSRS METCALF, WINTER AND OTUEHS.
About scventy-flvo persons assembled at
tho court-house last night, without public
notice, to assist in completing tho organiza
tion of a Labor-Reform party.
Mr. Metcalf called tho meeting to order,
and said that this being an adjourned meet
ing the first thing in order would bo tho
election of a permanent chairman.
Mr. Winter was placed in nomination,
but declined with thanks, saying
that ho wished to labor in
tho ranks, and insisted that Mr. Metcalf
should retain the position of chairman.
Mr. Metcalf in defining the objects of the
meeting spoke of tho necessity which he
and others felt for a new party ami arraign
ed the existing political parties as enemies
of the poorer classes, and as having failed
signally to givo satisfaction to the people,
lie contrasted the condition of the people in
this country the greatest on the globe
with those of other countries and spoke of
the oppressed condition of the poor and the
hardships they had to endure through in
imical legislation. He continued in that
strain for some time, alluding to taxation
which he descried as confiscation, and
in the course of his remarks alxmt the bond
ed indebtedness of the country and national
bank robbers, ho made t reference to the
"severe criticisms" of himself in the great
Cairo newspaper, and said "no man hollered
unless he was hurt."
Mr. Houpt was nominated and elected
After calling the roll of membership,
Mayor Winter was called upon to read the
platform of tho party, which ho did, with a
running commentary, indulging in frequent
remarks aliout himself and giving the
audience his personal political history, ne
also gave a brief resume of the growth of
the Greenlmck party, and concluded by
urging those present to como up and sign
He was reminded at the conclusion of
his remarks by one of the audience that in
recounting his political history he
omitted to mention that he
he was once a Know-Nothing. His honor
immediately denied it. In arraigning con
gress and legislatures for their unfriendly
attitude toward the people, ho exclaimed:
"Look at your town council; they will vote
hundreds of thousands of dollars for the
rich while they tio up the poor man's
pigs." He also handled national bankers
and bondholders without gloves, charac
terizing them in general terms as enemies
Mr. Metcalf, in subsequent remarks,
said that somelody at this meeting felt
very sore over his allusions, though who it
could have been tho reporter did not ex
actly find out. He seemed, however, to
drive at the representative of The
Bulletin, and as that gentleman is
known to be a blasted bloated bondholder,
who devotes all day and most of the
night to clipping coupons, and carries three
or four national banks nround on his sa
cred person, he was gazed at pityingly by
our horny-handed mayor, and that sweat
ing son of toil, Justice Comings.
Other addresses were made by Messrs. Ro
berts and Comings, of the same tensor as
thoso which preceded them. Their remarks
were generally directed against bondholders
and national bankers, and were in the main
rambling, incoherent and inconsistent.
The speakers all seemed earnest
and honest, but utterly lacked a compre
hension of the doctrines their party, and not
ono of them seemed capublo of offering a
remedy for the ills under which the poorer
classes of the country groan. They feel that
great wrongs exist, and that somebody or
something is responsible for it, and
lay tho blame equally on tho shoulders of
both political parties, whom they abuse
roundly. They grope in tho dark.
The following names were added to tho
membership of tho club:
Enos F. Wheeler, M. J. Buckly, J. W.
Merryman, S. Wultcrs, John Pollitk. W. W.
