We have heard it said that packages i
of cigar scraps tobacco used as fillers we
believe sent into Cairo from abroad, con
tained foreign substances that added more
to the weight than the value. But there is
no cause for wonder in this. There is
gouging, deception, fraud or downright
vi'.laicy in nearly all the business pursuits
of life, now-a-days except the job-printing
and newspaper business!

The intelligence from Sproat's Arkan

One of the deaths nt Memphis Mon
day was that of Rev. Father Doyle, a Cath
olic clergyman who through all the terrors
of the plague had stood sturdily ut his
post, nursing the sick, consoling the dy
ing and ministering indefatigably to the
distressed of the stricken city. At last,
overcome by his noble labors, lie fell a vic
tim to the epidemic, and Monday his
martyr soul went to its reward, nnd Ins
worn out body was consigned to its lust
resting plncc. The self-abnegation, tho
devotion, the fidelity and the calm heroism
that wo seo in the life nnd death of such a
man speak more for the hallowing influ
ence of the Christian faith than all tho
preachings and teachings o ages. Ex.

While tho Fisk people are ns clever ns peo

down tho fare from 5 cents per milo to 8
cents, believing she could maintain herself
at that rate Further cuts wero made in
the "crush-out" spirit, and, although both
boats are still in the trade, it is quito im
possible that either one of them is making
expenses out of tho legitimates Imsinos. If
the competition has no sad icr end tbao the
bankruptcy of one or both' of , tho boats,
tlio conclusion will be more fortunate than
is now generally anticipated.
Empty cisterns, growing corn, parched
gardens and sweltering animal creation,
man and beast, rejoiced, yesterday, over the
rain storm. It was a most welcome dash
of drenching moisture, and all nature took
on now vigor trom its cooliug and Inspirit
ing iufluenco. The thermometer dropped at
once from 02 to 80, aud before sun down
dropped still lower. A shower that was
ufore heartily welcomed has not fallen on
the just and unjust for many a day.
-jAmong other persons arrested, yester
day, for doing business without a license,
was Mr. Henry Throgmorton. Pre-
ceedimrs were instituted before Squire Rob
inson, but the caso was carried to Squire
Comings, by change of venue. Mr. Line
gar, attorney for the defence, made tho
pout, that Throgmorton was not a mer
chant, and did not come within tho mean
ing of the law as such. He bought old
chairs, sofas, tables etc., and exercising his
skill nnd labor ns a mechanic, he converted
them into partially new articles, different
and of greater valus than tiny origiually
were. Odd, broken and comparatively
worthless furniture was the material out of
which he made his saleable articles, and
was not, therefore, pursuing a mercantile
business; but a productive industry thut
was not subject to the tax of n license.
Squire Comings taking this view of the case
Throgmorton was discharged.
DEATH OF DR. DANIEL ARTER.
The announcement of Dr. Arter's death,
which took place nt a quarkr to 10 o'clock,
vestcrdav morninir, will excite but little
surprise among the people of Cairo.
Something over a year ago his left lo
was broken in two places by the fall of a
wall, at the foundation of which he was
working. Bein; at that time over 60 years
of age, it was thought that he could not re
cover from his miuries; out possessin;: a
vigorous constitution and a well preserve!
physical organization, he 60 fur recovered es
to be able to move from place to place on
crutches; and for a time he was piomiscd a
renewed lease of several years of life. Five
or six months ago, however, he was taken
down with pneumonia, which being Pr
eceded by other ailments, so reduced him
in flesh and strength that his recuperative
powers failed to assert themselves, and he
was confined to his. bed continuously trom
that time forward. The advent of the
present hot weather had a most debilitating
effect upon him, and growing feebler from
day to daj-, ho finally passed away easily
and calmly, like one lying down to sweet
Doctor Arter was born in the State of
Maryland, on the 3rd day of June, 170?,
and was at the time of his death, therefore,
81 years, two months nnd three days old.
He was married twice, having six chil
dren by his first wife, only one of which
now survives him, viz: Mrs. Louis Jaccard,
of Caledonia. By his second wife, (who
still survives him, and who bestowed most
patient and loving care upon him during
his long and trying illness) he also had six
children, four of whom, (all being daugh
ters) survive him and reside in this city.
The Doctor 'came to Southern Illinois
over forty years ago, during twenty-five
years ot which time he lived in ruloski
county, nnd practiced medicine. Always
blessed with great vigor and activity of
both body aud mind, he not only became a
very successful physician in his treatment
of the diseases incident to the country ; but
become a widely known, popular nnd influ
At tho outbreak of the war he
moved to Cairo, and accepted
na appointment from President
Lincoln to the then very responsible nnd
laborious position of Surveyor of tho Cairo
port. This office he held, always person
ally supervising its affairs, until the close
oi tho war, when he retired from business
altogether, upon a competence for his old
age. Although often importuned to offer
himself as a candidate for ofilcos of public
trust, he seemed to havo no nmhilion in
that direction, contenting himself during
his cighteen-ycnrs residence iu Cairo, with a.
single term as Select Councilman a position
hcflllcd most intelligently and industriously.
Although but littlo in public life, ns ul
rcady stated, few men were more constant
ly before the public. Known to and
knowing almost everybody iu the country
a man of quick perceptions, active intel
lect und good judgment, he was induced to
accept a directorship of the affuirs of tho
Emporium Real Estate ami Manufacturing
company, during the prosperous days of
thnt corporation, and so well and satisfac
torily did he discharge the trusts of thu po
sition that, upon his retirement, liis co-directors
and the olllerrs of the company tes
tified their appreciation of his valuable aid,
Iu the presentation of n splendid nnd costly
gold watch. In the management of his
own affuirs ho was reasonably successful,
so much so that his declining years were
blessed with n "temporal abundance."
During the past ten years the Doctor
gavo much thought to thu creeds of the
different Christian sects, nnd embodied in
pamphlet form the results of much of his
thought and researches. Ho firmly believed
in nn over-ruling, ever-present Intelligence.
and in nn existence after death; but he din.
carded all the creeds and bum of the
chinches; nnd denied the inspiration of
the scriptures and the diviuity of Christ
To this delstic belief he dung to the lust
rational moment of his life, fueling unsurcd
that, whatever tlio mrure migui h 'u
store for the creatures of earth, he would
.. . ! - 1.1 !.... I-
fare as well and happily as the rest.
He approached death without a tremor or
fear-noy,he longed for It as for a hoppy
release from his suflbring-as for a sweet
rest for his old and toil-worn body, uaiiy,
almost hourly, for months past, he has ex
claimed "Oh, will the end never come?"
and, in tho growing certainty that the
end could not long be delayed, he was
never frightened or alarmed; but solaced
and comforted.I le hud run h is course ; he had
outlived tho allotted span; nature had pre
pared him for tho change, and he contem
plated it calmly, philosophically never as
a terror; but. always as a rest to his tired,
worn, pain racked, aud exhausted old
body, nud wearied, but ever active brain.
Now nnd here more is not called' for, at
least nt our hands, Wc have known him
ong and well os n most affectionate father
to his children, nml ns a most provident
luslmnd; and now as the survivingchildrcn
and the bereaved widow commit his body
to the earth, they can have tho solace of
knowing that the world is no worse becauso
Doctor Arter came upon it, performed his
mission and passed away. Thousauds re
member him to bless l.ir.i for his generous
charities, and friendly aid and counsel; and
blessed memories of him will live lougufter
all that is uow left of him has become a
mas? of indistinguishable dust.

THE EQUITABLE LIFE ASSURANCE
SOCI ETY OF THE UNITED STATES
MA KES THE FOLLOWING ANNONCE-
M EXT TO THE PUBLIC:
The . dissatisfaction which prevails
throughout the community with regard to
onerous conditions contained in life assur
ance contracts and the judicial decisions
based thereon, together w ith the public in
dorsement of the lilHral usages of this So.
eiety, as shown by its largely increased
business, has led the management seriously
to consider whether the contract could not
bo slmpl'lid and certain conditions eresed
therefrom which have leen the subject of
much criticism and misconception.
After a careful examination of the c.v
periencc of 6omc of the best companies in
Great Britain, who have shown a greater
liberality than has been customary in this
country, this society feels justified in adopt
ing a form of contract in which the follow
ing important concessions are made to pol
icy holders throughout tho United States:
1. Policies will lie made incontestable
after three years from their date.
2. Each ordinary policy will provide for
adefinatc surrender-value in paid-up assur
ance, in case the poliry is forfeited nfter
three years from its date.
3. Each Tontine policy will contain a
definite surrender-value in cash, in casiof
withdrawal at the end of the tontine
4. The contract will be concisely nnd
clearly expressed, containing only such
provisions ns are necessary to protect the
!. The above concessions will hereafter
inure to the benefit of all policies already
issued and in force, after three years from
their dates respectively.
