An Astonisiiino Fact. A large projKir
tion of the American people are to-day suf
fering from thu effects of Dyspepsia, or
disordered liver. The result of these diseases
upon the masses of intelligent and valuable
people is more alarming, making life actu
ally a burden instead of a pleasant existence
of enjoyment and usefulness. There is no
good reason for this, if you will only throw
aside prejudice and skepticism, take tho
advice of druggists and your friends, and
try ono lsittlo of Green's August Flower,
your speedy relief Is certain. Millions of
bottles of this medicine huvo been given
away to try its virtues, with satisfactory re
su'ts in every case. You can buy a sample
bottle for ten cents to try. Three doses will
relieve the worst case. Positively sold by
all druggists on tho Western Continent.

Mr. John Evans, chief of police of
Henderson, Ivy., passed through this city a
few days ago for Hot Springs, In seaieh of
a young man named Rupski. Ho arrived
in Cairo again last evening on his return to
Henderson, with Rupski in charge. The
prisoner is charged with having
defrauded his uncle, a lioot and
shoo merchant of Henderson, out of alxmt
uinfnunuVoil doMns. Rupski, it is said,
. , ,. ,v ,., . . . '
rntered the store ot Ins uncle, whose name
i Fassee, about one year ago, as salesman,
jl'icrehe remained until alwut three weeks
efo, when he gave up the position, and left
"emlerson. -For months Mr. Fassee has
"j-en deriving very small compensation from
cu business, and our informant
'lis us often has remonstrated with Rupski
cr the unusually low figures that he dis
i ... i . i ... i. ..i.i.. ...
I poscu oi jjoous in, iui lie us never noiu in
1 break him of Ins tailing. Mr. tass"e had
the utmost confidence in the integtity of
his nephew, and never suspected him until
a few days after his departure from Hen
dei.nn, w hen be learned that Rupski was in
Paducah, and that he had deposited in the
First National bank of that place
about eight hundred dollars, and
knowing that Rupski had no
resources from which he could derive the
money, began to investigate the matter.
His inquiries developed the fact that for
secral mouths Rupski bad been in the
habit, not of selling goods at killing low
prices, as ho thought, but that he bad
charged enormous prices on all his sales,
but instead of turning over to his employer
the gains, he had kept back a large portion
of the profit on every sale be made. At
such a game as this, the majority of young
men would have been detected before they
had gone very far, but Rupski threw off all
suspicion by his economical way of living.
Instead of spending the money in high living,
or carousing, as fast young men would
have done, he was temperate in his habits
and spent very little money that did not go
for actual necessities. Rupski is alniut
twenty years of age, is of prepossing ap
pearance hipl good address. He has a num
ber of relatives who are known among the
prominent families of Southern Illinois.
Smokeus, if you wish a fine "Key West"
or 'Imlflrted" cigar, call at ' Korsineyer's
cigar store. It is the only place in the city
almost dully in receipt of fresh goods.
