The lazy, drizzling, drowsy rain of yes
terday, imparted a gloomy look to every
thing, tainting one's thoughts and feelings
with its own coloring. We like a stout,
vigorous, earnest, drenching rain one that
tills the Fpouts and over-runs the cave-
troughs, and sends big streams of noisy,
muddy water hurrying along tho gutters.
But drip! drip! drip! Goodness! If
anything in the world can afford a shado of
justification for "self-suicide," it is just such
a ruin as that of yesterday. It rendered all
creation ugly and huteful and affected one's
temjier in very much the same manner.
If "important dispatches" ore respon
sible for the report circulated in Metropolis,
that the guests of the Arlington House, of
this city, were compelled to go to bed sup-
porlcss, a few nights ago, because tho

"important dispatches" circulated a false
hood. The guests of the Ai lington suffered
no such deprivation, nnd are not liable to.
The cook really "struck," a few days ago,
thinking he would compel the patrons of
the house to go breakfastless; but his aim
was foiled. Among the other employes
if the house were found fifteen or twenty
men, all of whom served a seven years' ap
prenticeship at the cooking business, under
celebrated French masters. The result was
that instead of deprivingtheguests of their
breakfast, the irate striker was the unwit
ting means of placing before them the best
prepared und most abundant and tempting
breakfast that had ever been spread in tho

The one half of the sad stories of real
suffering and of wonderful endurance that
must be charged to the late epidemic, will
never reach the public. We give one; but it
is only one of many that might be told, with
out passing beyond our corporation lines for
the subject. A young married woman was ta
ken sick early in October. An old lady
who may be credited wi'h more deeds of
charity und U-nevoh-nco than Hiiy other wo
man in Southern Illinois, nursed the invalid
through to convalescence. The patient
was getting along finely, when, from some
ause, a dog suddenly sprang upon her
bed, and threw her into violent convulsions.
The paroxysms were terrible, and were fol-
owed by a mishap to which married wo
men are at times subjected. Other convul
sions followed, and ut the end of three days,
tlreii occurred what our obstetricians must
ard as most womleftil a second mishap
like the first one. At death's door the
young woman remained for several days
osoilaling between life and death, clinging to
the one, but apparently in tho very grasp of
the other. But a strong constitution and
tho solicitous nursing of her guardian
angel prevailed. The young woman has
now completely recovered, to recount an
vperience that not more than one in ten
thousand of her sex could go through with
and live. The recovery furnishes a case of
human endurance that can have but few, if
any, paralel among tim.su who were smitten
v the scourge, and out-lived the terrible

with their listening for the pattering of the
tiny feet, that come no niuro to cheer
her. There is a shadow- in the home
that chills the hearts of ull who loved Iter.
