And behold it yesterday came
to pass that news was scarce
in tho land and the faith of the
reporter of Tn k Bulletin in tho truthful
ness of the saying "seek und yo shall find,"
was somewhat shaken.
A gentleman named John Everly,
formerly in charge of the signal service

Yesterday morning brought1 ! the
news that Rev. Hooper Crews, father of
Mrs. P. W. Barclay, died nt Oregon, 111.,
after having been sick tor some time. He
was u minister ot tho M. E. church, and was
in the third year of his appointment as
minister ot the church in Oregon. He was
seventy-.-ix years of age at the time of his
A man from Carbondalc, bound for
home on the Mississippi Central railroad,
Monday evening, left the coach when it
was ou the transfer steamer McComb and,
sitting down in some convenient place,
died. It is believed that his ailment was
au affection of tho heart. He was taken
home by his son, who bad accompanied
him on his trip.
A colored man named Thomas Harris,
who confesses to having murdered a negro
woman at Brooklin, opposite Paducah, Ky.,
was yesterday brought here from Helena
Ark., by a Memphis detective named W. G.
Pride, who placed his prisoner in our coun
ty jail for safekeeping and took him out in
the evening to continue ou his way to Me
tropolis, where the prisoner will be tried.
A number of the street crossings are
in very bad condition, which is a serious
impediment to draymen and teamsters.
Another impediment is the gravel that is
lying in heaps along Ohio Levee, which
should te ccattered as soon as the weather
will permit. Draymen pay five dollars a
year licensf, and teamsters seven and a half
dollars. Besides this, they pay taxes, and it
would seem only dm; to them that the
streets should be kept in as good a condi
tion as circumstances will permit.
We yesterday had the pleasure of
forming the acquaintance of Mr. II. G.
Carter, of Mound City, one of the able at
torneys who have been engaged for'the de
fense in the Znone divorce case, and who
if reports uiay be believed recently
shuffled off this mortal coil. It is but jus
tice to Mr. Carter to say that bince tho an
nouncement of his death he has been among
us in a decidedly materialized state, which
fact would be sufficient to warrant a jury
in pronouncing him an unusually lively
corpse. In the trial above referred, his
efforts in behalf of tho defendant ore
highly spoken of.
The argument in the Zanone divorce
esse was closed by Judge Davis, ot St.
Louis, yesterday evening, 'after which the
jury retired to find a verdict, which they
did after having been out but a hhort time.
They did not grant the divorce and Mr.
Zenone is compelled by their decission to
support his wife. The final argument for
the defense was made by Judge Green,
whose effort is highly lauded, as one both
logical and eloquent. He is a polished
speaker, who invariably has the patient
attention of all who come within car-shot
of his remarks.
We learn from City Engineer Thrupp
that in some places the gravel that has
been spread upon the Btrcets does not
answer the purpose as well as it should.
The trouble appears to be that it has not
the requsito bottom to ret upon. The
ground underneath becomes soft, and
the gravel gradually becomes displaced
and sinks down from tho con
tinual use to which it is subjected.
The remedy he suggests is, that gravel bo
secured from "Island No. One;" the sand
all sifted out, and the pebbles used in re
pairing the streets that have so far been
graveled ; and the sand, being worth one
and a quarter dollars per yard, could be
used in various ways.
Our young gentlemen readers will this
morning find another "matrimonial rhyme,"
from Anna, on our second page, which is as
well worded and witty as tho former. Wo
may state in this connection that the initials
signed to tho former rhyino wcro not those
of tho writers, but wero signed by us with
out any knowledge of who the writers were.
But even had the initials been
thoso ot tho young ladies who
wroto the rhyme, there could have been
no serious objection to their initials op
pearl ng beneath It, since it was known by
qmto all our readers that it was written
purely In a spirit of fun. It was well re
ceived in Cairo and created a goodly amount
of merriment, but never onco a serious
thought; and wo need but say, in con
clusion, that if the authors aro as handsome
as thny arc witty and we have ft slight
suspicion that they arc they will, but
I we forbear further comment.

The construction of a hid'iwalk on
Twelfth street, from Walnut s'rcot to Thk
Bulletin office, has already commenced.
The State Journal says: "There will
be lively time3 when brother Oberly
gets his journalistic artillery in position at
Bloomington, and properly trained upon tho
works of brother Dowdull at Peoria." This
i9 a mistake. There will be no time of any
kind between these two warriors bold un
less it be a friendly time. They have for
given and forgotten each other's-shortcomings
and, with arms encircling each other's
necks, have wept the tears ot repentencc.
Their respective weapons, now rusted and
corroded and unfit for use, quietly repose
ut the bottom of their editorial ink bottles
with no hope ot resurrection, anil, in short,
they are as "two souls with but a single
thought, two hearts that beat as one."
The wedding of Miss Moliie Clark
aud Mr. John F. Clardy, took place at
the residence ot tho bride's parents, Mr.
and Mrs. J. N. Clark, in Missouri, yesterday
morning. It was a notable affair, since both
psrties to it stand high in social circles,
and are blessed with innumerable friends,
both here, and" in the state where they
live. Miss Mollie is known as a most love
able young lady, being refined, intelligent,
accomplished and in every way fitted to
bring happiness wherever she goes. The fort
unate groom, Mr. Clardy, is no less worthy
and is amply supplied with the various es
sentials to a blissful union and a prosper
ous and happy life. A large number of
friends of the parties attended the wed
ding, which was one of tho most brilliant
affairs of its kind. We tender our con
We have just received, in pamphlet
form, an essay read by Dr. H. Wardner,
president of the Illinois state board of
health, before a meeting of tho tri-statc
medical society, held at Louisville, Ky,
Nov. 10th, which discloses the remarkable
fact that beforo the adoption of t.'io late
law by which all physicians were subjected
to a rigid examination, nearly two thousand
quacks had been imposing themselves upon
the public as physicians in Illinois alone.
Tho doctor says:
"In a few words, the board of health in
itsentorcemeut of the law, has sought sim
ply to ascertain in each cuso whether or not
the person undertaking to treat disease was
properly qualified to discharge his func
tions intelligently and with skill. Never
theless, even under so liberal a system as
this, ono thousand seven hundred and fit ty
men who hud been practicing medicine in
Illinois were compelled, by their discov
ered ignorance and unfitness, to abandon
practice or quit tho State. Ono
hundred nml twenty others have
been restricted to practico under tho su
pervision of preceptors, five hundred and
fifty havo entered medical schools tor the
purpose of securing tho requisite medical
education; thirty-six aro awaiting exami
nation, and tho applications of one huu
died and Bcvcnty-four aro under considera
tion, their qualifications being . undeter
mined. These figures are simply astounding. In
a single stato nearly 2,000 men were so illy
qiialillud to treat disease, so ignorant ot
medicine, tnat they couiu not satuy tno
liberal conditions already outlined; in
short, 2,000 quackB had been imposing
themselves upon tno public as physicians,
and recklessly nssumiug functions upon
which health and life depend."
A i.AiioE proportion of children who die
early aro thoso whoso brain development is
unusually largo in comparison with tno
body. Why is this? Simply because tho
functions of the body aro too frail to sup
ply tho wasto going on in this brain conse
quent upon active intelligence. Fellow's
Compound Syrup of Hypophosphites is so
prepared that It imparts tho vital principle
directly to tho brain, while it assists in de
veloping ft vigorous ana robust nouy.
Wiiy lins Homeopathy become so popu
lar? Because their medicines aro so easy
to take; and this Is ono reason why Carters
I.ittlo Liver Pills arc so very popular.
