23.0 feet, being only C.li feet below the top
of the gauge or crest of the levee. Most of
the new water comes 1mm thu Missouri
with pleuty more following aftor. The re
cent cold .iniip delays a general thaw which
is now likely to come all at once along the
water sheds of the Missouri and Mississippi,
melting the great banks and drifts of snow
lying between here nnd the Kockies. Will)
25 feet now above low water, the heavy
volume a thaw is sure to add will more

Hannibal in Peril.
Hannibal, Mo., April 4 The river at
this point is viiy high and still rising. It
lacks but one foot on the Illinois side of
being over the bank, and that much more
of a rise would clear out the large ice house
belonging to A. C. Oraham, nnd which con
tains about 8,0U0 tons of ice. Great fears
are entertained that a sudden risu may
come and create another break in the Sny
levee, though every precaution will be
tuken to prevent such a calamity. There
has been no ice running to-day.
Yankton Again Flooded.
St. Paul, Minn., April l.- A Pioneer
Press special says: A 15-foot nso occurred
at Yankton last night mid the town is
again flooded from 0 to 8 feet deep in tho
luwcr part of the city, which is entirely de
serted. Six feet of the rise came from
above and tho balance was caused by n
gorge below tho city. At 0 o'oclock this
evening tho water wit's rising slowly and is
now above the highest point reached last
week. Tho town of Gayville, twelve miles
below, is overflowed, but the buildings still
stand. Tho entire City of Vermillion, ex
cept the di'Hut and ono other building on
the bluff, is swept away. No lives wore
lost, but much stock was drowned, a large
number f cattle on tho bottoms being lost.
The City of Elkhart is entirely surround
ed, nnd tho current from the
Missouri running across tho country
is so strong a boat cannot be rowed against
it. Between Jefferson andVormillion the
water has been rising steadily all day.
There is no probability ot the gorges giv
ing way until the weather changes, and ar
rangements am being made to blast them
with dynamite. Some of the gorges aro
ten miles long and twenty to thirty tect
deep, formed of ice three feet thick, and
not much faith is felt in tho experiment.
Tiie river at Yankton is ten miles wide and
thirty-three leet above low water mark.
There have been no more losses of Ioats.
The inhabitants of Green Island left the
town before the great flood came, and no
lives were lost. The bodies ot two men
have been found in the river, but were not
Shot Down in Cold Blood.
McLeansbouo, 111., April 4. There was
a shooting scrape at Thompsouville, in
Franklin county, ou Saturday. Mr. Haines
and son went to that place and there met
one Dr. Carter and his brother James. A
few days before this James was in Gl
lafia and got into a mlit with Raines' son.
receiving a terrible beating. When Dr.
Carter saw Haines he asked him why he
had struck his brother. He replied he had
right to. The doctor sitid, "(! d d n
you, I will kill you." Dr. Carter then
drew Ins revolver and yming Raines his.
At tins point Dr. Hamilton separated them
and they both went away. Dr. Carter pro
ceeded to his home, returned with a blmt-
gun and tired at young Haines, filling his
ooily with buckshot. He will not live.
aiue Carter went up to the father and
struck him with a large club, . knocking
hi:n down and seriously injuring him.

A Higk-Flown Plea.
Ladies enn war wonderfully grandi
loquent when in tho mind, says an ex
change. A Kentucky victim of man's
inconstancy thus sets forth her plaint iu
a petition for divorce: "Dark clouds
of discord began to lower over thu sky
of a wedded felicity, nnd tho minacious
lightning of disunion began to dart Its
lurid finiups across gloomy clouds of a
tramental blackness, obscuring every
star of hope of happiness, whoso res
plendent glory illuminated the dawn of
the first few brief years of her wedded
life, when sho gavo her hand and an
undivided heart to the defendant, who
.in tho sultry month of July. 1879, nfler
having been warmly nnd snugly win
tered within the fond cinbi uees 'of her
loving arms and closely nestlod to a
heart that beat nlono for tho defendant,
showed his base, lilnek ingratitude by'
abandoning her without cnuso whnlev
or. except, tho insatiable thirst for nov
elty, which Is tho predominating char
acter of defendant's nnture.''
Ptivi'tt Lrtfcr: A butcher, living in
Rue Daguerre, has often noticed that
first cuts of meat, disappeared from his
stall, but for the life of him he could
not detect tho thief until his utlcntion
was attracted by a large dog Unit, was
evidently on tho watch for something

dog waited until tjiern was nobody in
tho stall i then ho seized a plooo of' tho
veal worth $'2 nnd quietly marched off,
lis dignified as a nabob who hud bought
a tit-bit for his table. The butcher ns
quietly followed him, waited at tho door,
which was evidently that of his home,
for a few moments then nntored. Ho saw
tho dog's mistress busily engaged cutting
up tho meat. lie had her arrested

Let no single trace of grieving for my leaving
Pain u as wo wander tbro' this grove.

venders of sawdust, having a capital of
$200,000 invested, and doing a business
amounting to more than $2,000,000 an
nually. Forty years ago the mills were
glad to have sawdust carted away;
twenty-five years ago it could be bought
for fifty cents a load, but the price baa
increased, and now it brings $3 50 a
load, at tho mills. It is used at the
hotels, eating-houses, groceries, and
other business houses. It is wet and
spread over floors iu order to make tho
swooping cleaner work. Plumbers use
a great deal about id pes and buildings
to deaden wnlls anil floors. Soda-water

dust will do. They make a great deal
of black walnut sawdust, but it will not
sell and is burned.
