gorilla, tlie educated goose and pig, the
boa constrictor, the monkeys, are all rather
remarkable specimens, while the Circas

Littletinger will excite feelings of
amazement in all who see them. There is
much to seo and much to hear that will
both timtuc and instruct, and as the price
of admission is only 10 cents, everybody
ought to go. 101 Commercial avenue,

seven years ago, nt the cud of a protracted
spell of sickness, leaving ft large family of
small children with a roof over their !iendf,
but nothing else. Determined to "do some-
thing to help," George, then only fourteen
years of age, gatheted up a hat full of old
type, aud commenced the publication of an
amateur weekly. He canvassed for patron

TheGreenbackersof thus Judicial circuit
are urgently invited by Messrs. Parish and
Ingraliani, ( who act under the suggestion of
a number of representative Greeubackers
who recently met in Marion) to send dele
gates to a Judicial convention that is to
meet in Marion on tlio Kith instant. The
object of tho convention is to consider
whether it is expedient for the Greeuback
ers to consolidate their vote in n particular
direction, at the" ensuing judicial elec
tion; and if that proposition is decided
affirmatively, then to' decide in what di
rection or upon which set of candidates
the votes shall be consolidated. If our
Alexander county Greenbackers propose to
take any part iu that convention, they
should move in the matter at ouce.
The Metropolis negro boy, Dick Brad-
1 .... -1wl tfklt.l s.t aiiKiiII
shaw, who shot and killed a colored play
mate because the playmate had made de
fault iu the payment of five cents, was sen
tenced to imprisonment in the penitentiary
for a term of twenty years. In a conversa
tion with tho editor of the Pope County
Democrat the hardened littlo rascal said
that ho didn't know that the pistol was
cocked; he intended to shoot the boy, but
wasn't quite ready, just then. He is about
13 years of age. The boy he killed was an
inoffensive littlo lad, 11 years of age, who
was pleading for the privilege of calling
on his uncle for the five cents when he was
shot down. The prisoner in company with
Moseby, whom the Democrat denominates
"a Cairo horse thief and who was under a
sentence ot tour years, passed through
Cairo en route for Joliet, several days ago.
It was with feelings of the most pro
found regret that we learned yesterday.of the
death ot our old friend, Joe G. Cormick, of
Centralis. He'died of dropsy, at his home,
at 3 o'clock Saturday morning and was
buried yesterday afternoon. Cormick en
tered iu the service of the Illinois Central
railroad company in the year IS.jO, nud has
been in the employment of that company
ever since. With a warm, sympathetic
heart, of a highly sociable and most com
panionable nature he knew everybody in
Southern Illinois, and among the general
traveling public had as cxten.-ivc an ac
quaintance as any railroad conductor in the
west. Well and widely known as he was,
we doubt it much if the man or woman
is alive to-day who can truthfully say that
he or she ever suffered wrong, to the extent
of a nickel at the hands of Joe
Cormick. Although filling a position that
fairly "bristled"' with little annoyances, the
equanimity of his temper was always pre
served; ho was kind to everybody, gener
ous to a fault instinctively a gentleman.
He was scrupulously honest, clever and
obliging; and however well, however effi
ciently his place may be filled in "the run
between Cairo and Centralia," many years
will pass by before the local traveler will
cease to regret the absence of good old Joe.
On the announcement of his death the offi
cers of the Illinois Central gaveout the word
that friends anywhere who might wish to
attend his funeral should have free carriage
over the road; and as a further murk
of respect the cabooses and engines
of the division were draped in
mourning. A large throng followed
the body to the grave, and, had there been
no previous assurance that the good old man
had a strong hold upon the affections of
his neighbors and friends, the proof was
furnished there, abundantly and conclu
sively. Joe was about Oo years of age, ami
had for years been a member of the Con
ductor's Life insurance company, and was
still a member, we hear, at the time of his
death. More we feelinclined to say, but
pressed for time and limited in space, we
close with a heart-felt farewell forever to
our friend of a half of a long life time!
Joe (!. Cormick.
The water throwing contest yesterday,
created so much excitement and ill-feeling
that we don't care to attend another "joust'
of the same character. At 3 :30 the Delta
engine backed up to the tank, aud in u few
minutes was well braced, and ready for
the work in hand. The nozzlemen took
their position at n point Ho feet from the en
gine, and at a point up the avenue Hio feet
5 inches distant, the judges of the contest
placed a sheet ol blank newspaper, to mark
the throw of the Rough and Readies in
July 1S7S. If the Delta's water fell short
of that point, it was understood that the
contestjwoiild end there, and the Roughs
retain possession of the horns. .t tho
given signal the Delta boys come down on
the breaks and in about t'o ininuio time
had hoisted water 2l f"t l).'nu th)
Roughs mark. The Roughs now luieUed
Up to tho tank and coming down on the
breaks quite lively hoisted the water some
what beyond their mark of lS'.x, whereat
a loud shout went up for the Deltas, and
for n low moments the members of that
company felt all the pride of victors. The
Rtuglis thinking they could better
their first throw took to the breaks ii"uin,
but fell somewhat short. It wa, claimed,
however, that a drop of the Rough's water
fell on the sidewalk, out of the line f tU!
throw. The Delta's judge agreed tlmt the
drop had been thrown there by the Houghs,
but insisted that, inasmuch ns it was nut of
the linn of the throw it ought not to be
counted. This position not being tenable
(the rules governing the contest exprly

declaring that tho judges shouhl i,
governed by tho farthest drop 0f
water from tho nozzle) tho jmigeg
measured to the drop on the sidewalk, and
found the distance to be 189 ft 7 inches.
The Deltas imving thrown 18C It 5 inches',
the Roughs were declared the winners by
3 ft 2 inches. Then came tho contest be
tween the Little Arab and the Little Rough.
Iu July 1878 the Littlo Rough threw water
a distance of 117 feet 7 inches, and it stood
the Arab in hand to beat that throw or re
main vanquished. At the signal tho Arab
boys commenced their work and when they
had thrown drops of water 138 ft 0 inches,
or 20 feet 11 inches beyond the Rough's
throw of last year they pulled out and
gave place to their competitors. The
Roughs then went into position, but being
unable to improve upon the 117
feet, the horns were awarded to the
Little Arabs. The judges having
decided against the Deltas, as above
stated, the boys felt disinclined to give it
up, and backed their engine into position
tor a second throw. But they were out
of humor, and in the hurry of the moment
got a washer in their hose. As a conse
quence of these drawbacks the second
throw was an utter failure. This ended
the contest, and the judges announced the
result as follows: Throw of the big
Rough, 18!) feet 7 inches; throw of the
Deltas, ISO" feet " inches; throw of the
Little Arab, 138 feet 0 inches; throw of the
Little Rough, 117 feet 7 inches. Mayor
Thistlcwood being present solaced the per
turbed spirits of the defeated companies
by a few well timed remarks, compliment
ed the victors und passed over to them the
horns. And thus ended the contest. Had
it been a question as to which company
threw solid water the farthest, the Deltas
would have been declared the victors.
But the judges were ruled down to the
farthest drop of water from the starting
point, and as they gave that drop to the
Roughs, their decision is, of course, final.
Tlie judges were placed in a most thank-les-
und unenviable position; and should
tiny live a thousand years they will we
dan say always respectfully but firmly de
fine to sit in judgment upon another
waor-throwing contest between Cairo tin
companies. O; a pleasant fall day some persons will
thoughtlessly expose themselves as in sum
