The prisoners in the county jail had a

the extreme dullness of their lives.

Notwithstanding tho "awful" exam
ples furnished daily by the papers, tho ser

shows a total disregard of tho fact that tho
nearest grave yard is twelve miles away.
The latest example is from Ilarristown, Ill
inois, where on Monday evening in at
tempting to light a tire, Anna Connover,
aged 12 years, was badly burned ahout the
face, breast and arms, by tho terrific ex

quantity of kerosene oil. She is now lying

hopes are cntertainod that bIic will recover.
Another good meeting was had at Ue

Uev. Bush held the audience- enchained by
his eloquence, argument, naratives
and entreaties. At the end of his
discoursn another song was begun and sign
ers called for, which call was responded to
by four gentlemen who placed their names
upon the total abstinence pledge. Bev.
Bush has been induced to remain over to
day and will again be on hand to-night
when, it is expected, the hall will bo again
crowded with eager listeners and interested
temperance workers. The meeting will be
called to order promptly at 7 :;i0 o'clock
The trial of a man at St. Paul, Minn.,
for rescuing his servant girl instead of his
wife from a burning building is one which
hould attract the serious attention of hus
bands. Of course the continsiencv involved
will not come to every man, but it is well
that all should know the prejudice of the
law on the subject. It seems, from this
St. Paul trial, that to rescue the servant
girl first is not considered just the thing,
and that a nun is expected to save his wife
from a burning building and let the servant
girl be cooked in all cases when only one
of the two can be rescued. It is true that
he can pretend to be scared and stand off
and let both burn and still be held blame
less, but, if he is going to do anything
brave, a choice is not allowed him. The
law may be all right, but it is feared that it
will result iu the occasional consumption
by fiamu of two women instead of one.
Men are such creatures of impulse.
Since the fall of the Ohio river great
quantities of drift wood, which was coming
down the river, has been left ou the bank,
and a 'number of da'kies aro at work day
after day chopping it up for fire wood.
Among these is a family that keeps a kind
of a shanty restaurant just below the Clark
block, who has been using the
rickity old sidewalk along there
tor all tho purposes of a wood yard for
some time. The uprights, cross timbers
and stringers of the walk along this par
ticular, including many of the top planks,
are rotted away to a considerable cx'.ent,
causing the walk to sink down about two
feet below the proper level. It looks
like a suspension bridge at the po'int giv
ing way in the middle, and we arc only
surprised that the boys of the town have
not yet discovered that to simply stand
there while people pass to and fro beats a
tetcring board all to "smash" for a ride.
Insure your lives, boys, and try it.
--In response to the toast -"Knights of
the Mystic Krew"- proposed at the instal
lation of the newly elected officers of the
Krew the other night Mr. Claudo Winter,
the new "great grand Mogul," gave a short
synopsis of the organization's history since
1S77, when John I). Hodges held that of
fice. "In 1877" bo said "the Krew inau
gurated a grand street parade, with Mr.
Herman Levy as king, and terminated the
day's festivities with a magnificent ball at
the St. Charles hotel. The net proceeds
of this celebration were ohc hundred and
twenty five dollars." Elated over the success
which attended this, their first effort, they
determined to celebrate the Fourth of July
of the same year, in St. Mary's Park. This
they did in a gorgeous manner, bringing
thousands of strangers to tho cily who wcro
highly entertained, and spent their money
freely among our merchants. This cele
bration cost the Krew nine hundred dollars
and their receipts were only cit'ht hundred
and ten dollars, leaving them ninety dollars
in debt, which they had to
raise by special assessments. Mardi Gras
in 173 found the Krew with an empty
treasury, but, urged on by their active
Mogul, they determined upon another
celebration that should eclipso all former
efforts. And they did have a brilliant dis
play in our streets and a ball ut the St.
Charles hotel in the evening. As a celebra
tion it was a great success, but to tho Krew
it proved to he a disastrous failure, for they
lost ono hundred and eighty-nino dollars.
In compliance with a petition numerously
signed by tho citizens tho Krew concluded
to celebrate tho following Fourth of
July at St. Mary's Park. This was done
with a grand street parado in which tho
Krew, tho several fire companies and other
organizations of the city took part, headed
by tho Delta brass band. At the park Miss
N. L. Eraser read tho Declaration of Inde
pondence, and in tho evening a display of
firo works was had. The net proceeds

of this nearly made up for the loss sustain
ed ou mardi gras day, it being one hun
dred and sixty-niuo dollars. In couclu
fsion the new Mogul expressed himself in
nvor of celebrating the next mardi gras
day in an imposing manner, promising to do
all in his power to bring alwut a favorable
feeling among the members of tho Krew,
and the citizens to make it a certainty.
- What has been done by the committee
on police, jail and fire department in com
pliance with the resolution offered in the
council some nionthsago by Alderman Blakei
instructing it to consider the propriety
of erecting a building for the use of the
various city offices, city council and for
jail purposes. The subject is ono of much
interest to the people of Cairo, for the en
terprise is an important one, which, if
pushed to a successful issue, would give
Cairo something of which it could bo just
ly proud. But it is desirable not to be too
hasty in the inauguration of new and ex
pensive improvements just at the present
moment. Cairo has shown so much
enterprise of late in instituting and pro
secuting new internal improvements that it
has drawn upon itself the admiring gaze of
the towns and cities around it and can well
afford to quietly finish the improvements
so far hogmi. A building, like the one
suggested above, should be in a
central portion of the city and
should vie. in every respect with
the other public building in Cairo (except
ing the court house, which is a disgrace to
both city and county) and it must, of
course, bo a large one. To secure the
proper ground for a good sized jail yard
and to erect such a building as the pur
poses for which it is to be used would
seem to demand will draw somewhat
heavily upon eur treasury, and a flimsy
structure is wor e than none. It is well,
therefore, to deliberate and let the plans
mature slowly, and the work begin when
some of he other improvements have been
As previously announced the prelimi
nary examination of the negro, Samuel
Bedding, Mr. Zimmerman's murderer, and
hi two supposed accomplices, tool: pUu:
at Mound City on Wednesday afternoon'
before Esquire Meitz. The time, set for
the examination seems to have been well
born in mind by the people of Pulaski
county, for long before the hour set for the
opening of the court, the court room was
entirely tilled with people, both white and
black. The excitement was intense and
painful expectancy was visible in every
countenance. Mr. J. A. (Joldstine and
little Lena Zimmerman went there from
here-the lattrr to identify the
murderer of her father whom she had seen
when lie firmi the fstal shot and whose fea
tures she had firmly impressed upon her
memory. Owing to the great crowd in the
court room and around it, it was decided to
conduct the examination, or rather tho
identification, in the jail building and there
Miss Lena, Mr. Goldstine, Esquire Mertz,
the sheriff, jailer and one or two others
went, excluding all curious lookcrs on.
A plan was decided upon that would leavo
no doubt of determining which ot tho
threo prisoners was the real criminal
The three prisoners were brought forth
from their cells and, manacled as they
were, placed shoulder to shoulder at one
end of a room, and then Miss Lena, who
was kept in an adjoining room, was told
that she would le shown the prisoners,
that she should scrutinize their faces close
ly and that if she recognized cither of them
as that of the man who killed her father
she should keep it to herself until taken
beyond the hearing of the prisoners. She
was then confronted witl.jo three ne
groes, whose faces she scanned closely.
Black ifcd Perkins bore the child's gazo
without flinching, but Bedding became
somewhat agitated, averted his face and
gave other unmistakable ding of guilt,
The prisoners we- then removed, and tho
child stated that tho man to the right
(which was Bedding) was the murderer of
her father. Other evidence, proving an
alibi, was also produced in favor of Black
and Perkins, and they were released upon
a nolle, entered in their behalf by the
state's attorney. Hie enthusiasm of tho
people was great and tho freed prisoners
were overwhelmed with congratulations.
