approve ot a reasonable exercise of discre

that felonies should be passed over so

SEDUCTION AND ATTEMPTED
A STAHTI.INO HTOKY OK HUMAN HEl'RAVITV
The exact day and year when Charles
Reynolds took to wife a widow woman w ith
a well grown daughter, is, for our present
purpose, n matter of no particular moment.
It is enough to know that such a matrimo
nial alliance was formed, und the conse
quences, the crimes and criminal purposes
that followed, we shall detail to our readers
ns they were detailed to us.
Reynolds lives within ai or twelve miles
of Cairo, and makes a living by farming
and teaming. Ho and his now wife lived
together after the manner of people in their
condition in life, until last fall it became
apparent that the daughter was enciente. In
November Reynolds visited Cairo, and call
ing upon a widow Hill, who lives some
where in the vicinity of Fourteenth and
Walnut, and telling Mrs. II. that he bad a
married daughter who was about to give
birth to her first chilli, and that the hus
band being down the rirer, he, Reynolds,
wanted to secure a place for his daughter
where she could command proper medical
skill and good nursing. Mrs. Hill protes
ted that she was not in a cumiitlon to re
ceive such a charge, and that Mr. Reynolds
must, therefore, look further. Reynolds
left. Next evening when Mrs. Hill return
ed to her home from which she had been
idisent a short time, she found the young
woman in the house, walking the floor and
suffering the admonitory pains of matern
ity. There was nothing left for Mrs. Hill
to do but to give the sufferer such accom
modations as her home would furnish. A
colored midwife named Hester Davis, was
called in, and during the night the girl gave
birth to a boy baby. This was on the J.jth
day of Njvember, 1878. About the 1st
day of December, Reynolds came to Cairo
to arrange for the care of the
child, and finally made arrangements
with a colored woman, Adelaide Myers, on
Twentieth street between Commercial and
Poplar, to take charge of the infant, agree
ing to pay Iter three dollars per week for
her trouble, partly in wood and partly in
money. Delivering the child into Adel
aide's hands, Reynolds promised to return
next day ami pay her iflJ in ad
vance; but ten days had elapsed when he
returned, and ho then paid ln r only one dol
lar and a half. Yesterday n week ago, the
girl-mother of the child, visited Adel
aide's home, confessed that the child was
hers and her step-father was the father of
it. She declared further that her step
father had treated her w ith great cruelty
would, not for fear of exposure, permit her
to bring the child I tome; but compelled her
to work bard and unceasingly to pay the
expense, he said, of maintaining the child
in Cairo. She had come, however, to take
the child home, and would provide for it
the best she could; but was
apprehensive that she or the
child or both would be killed or badly
treated. She was determined, however, to
submit to no longer separation from her
baby. The girl bad come into the city on
horse back, riding a nmn's saddle. Mount
ing the borso to return lmnie, she found
that she couldn't carry the child on horse
back without imperilling her own life as
well us that of the child. So, banding the
child back to tho charge of Mrs. Myers,
she said she would go home, and, on the
morrow, come for the child in a two horse
wagon. Mrs. Myers had bought and bor
rowed milk of her neighbors, nnd had
brought the child safely through the winter;
but had seen nothing of .Reynolds. The
dollar and a half lio paid to her ten days
after leaving the bub', was every cent she
had received from him.
About one o'clock last Sunday after
noon a two horse wagon drove to the
vicinity of Mrs. Myers' home, nnd a few
minutes biter Reynolds and his wifo
made their appearance, und announced
their purpose to take the child home; but
intimated no purpose to pay the 50 or CO
dollars Mrs. Myers had earned in taking
care of it. Mrs. M. had become much
attached to the child now nearly four
months old but still expressed no desire
to keep it. Absenting herself from the
room a moment, sho over-heard 11 spirited
discussion between Reynolds and his wife,
concerning the tell-talo countenance of the
infant -Mrs. It. declaring that the baby's
face would expose tho husband's crime;
ami ho declaring that it wouldn't.
The bearing, tho looks and manner of
Reynolds and his wife, excited Mrs. Myers'
fears for the safety of the child, and as
they were preparing to leave the house with
it, she says sho gnvo them a warning,
after tho manner fo lowing: "I've
brought that child safety through the worst.
It won't die unless you kill it. I see you
want to get rid of it, and I tell you now,
if you hoove it into Cache river us you pass,
I'll follow you as long as you live. No
child like thut dies unless it's helped off,
and if I hear it is dead I'll know exactly
why it is dead."
Roth Reynolds and his wife laughed at
tho kind-liearted negro woman's fears, and
assured her that they wouldn't hurt u single
hair of the little darling's head. The
wife, taking the child in her arms, tho
wagon containing all three of them drove
out of the city
The sequel is soon told. That evening
after dark, a colored man named Olcock,
was passing through the dense woods
beyond Cueho river, on his way to
church. At a point far removed
from uny habitation, his attention
was arrested by a noise which
something liko tho half smothered cry of a
child. Ho instituted search, and soon
dbcovcred the source from which tho cr es
had emanated. Lying on the,top of a large
stump, bundled up in rags, with its suck
ing bottle at its mouth, ho found a chilled,
half dead baby boy. Ho gathered the in
fant in his uiins, carried it to tho. church,
where be met a colored woman from Cairo,
who at once recognized the child us the one
that had been confided to the charge of
Adelaide Myers, The conjecture is that
Reynolds' resolution failing him, the child
was not killed; but was left where
it was found, in the expectation
that it might he picked up by some
one and carried off whore he would never
hear of it again; or that it might bo des
troyed by the hogs, or die of starvation.
Row such a diabolical expectation w as de
feated, wo have already briefly related. The
child was saved, and Sr. und Mrs. Rey
nolds are not, us they night have been, its
All the facts above related coming to the
cars of Squire Osborn, le first assured him
self of their truth, and then resolved to
bring Reynolds to justke. in this he hag

The City Attorney dismissed the case
thfTt was brought against Michael Glenn,
for violating the ordinance to protect side
walks. He said the case Miad failed for
want of proof. This was a made up job.

was ponding, and call in at Sargent's; -ind
what was said there 1 can't tell ; but on the
day of the trial, while it was yet pending
before Squire Comings, you wanted to dis
miss it. I took a change of venue to Squire
Robinson; und even there your
desire to dismiss it, cropped out
at every turn. And what
was the evidence f If I should swear that
wo havi? no sun, no moon, no stars or day
light, would such an oath In; cvidenei?
And since, then, the ngravations of winch
I coiiijiliuned are growing worse, ind us
the Walk is used by my people, I want it
ctirbei'l nnd recognized as a walk. If the
city refuses to exercise this, or any other act
of ownership, who shall say that I shull
not fence it up?
And another thing. By licensing gro
ceries to keep open on Sundays our city
council nre doing all they can to dethrone
(iod. It is written to remember the Sab
bath day and keep it holy. Many white
people complain of bad, wicked mischiev
ous colored children. The whites are the
teachers. They set examples and if the
blacks imitate them let them take
the re.sjtoiisibility home to them
selves. Ihc stranger who conies to
our city, can't tell from what be s es,
