ALL ABOUT THEBES AND VICINITY:
Seems to mo tho necessities of tho farm
ers aro almost entirely ignored or forgotten
by tho weather bureau; here it is April 13th,
only seventeen days more and the first of
May is right here, and not a furrow turned
for corn, and all on account of the weather;
yet what's to bo done about it? I don't
know; I guess we'll have to grin and bear
it. I just think this weather bad enough
to make oven "Old Trim," who always sees
a bright side of tlio weather, grumble.
Away! avauntl ye gloomy thoughts, and
let's talk about something that hasn't such
gloomy aspect or prospect. Yes, we'll talk
about Thebes; Tho naiuo is ancient, very
ancient, dating back to a time whon tho
great pyramids were not even molo hills.
I like old names; in that I exhibit the same
weakness as that of my fellow sinners, for
show mo tho individual who isn't proud of
an old family name, even if it doesn't date
any farther than the May Fbwer or Poca
hontas. I can't tell how far back tho date
of my family name goes, but have every
reason to believe that were the records get-
at-able, that it would be found to have orig
inated at tho building of the Tower ot Ba
bel. All of us, poor deluded rrcatures, aro
prone to go to extremes, the rago now is
old age; the newspaper man, census man,
and everybody else is hunting up Ccnten
narians, and publishing them; wonder it
they soon won't stumble on a double ccn-tennarian.
There is hut one instance that has cmo
under my observation where a party took
tho other extreme and this I have from a
census man. Out in the backwoods, he
came upon a low log-shauty standing
in the middle of a live-acre .patch of corn,
theVloor beingjopen, a molasses colored lady
invited him in, taking a scat, he at once
proceeded with his interrogations in ask
ing the lady her age, (she being a widow)
she said about twenty-two; there were five
children, and one young lady who seemed
from appearance to he about grown; he
asked the widow if all those were her chil
dten, she said yes, and that young lady?
That's my daughter, and how old is she?
Seventeen, I guess. Arithmetic wasn't her
fort. But what am I talking about! I've
almost forgotten what I was saying; yea, I
was going to talk about Thebes. Well,
I'll try again. You've read that classic
piece of poetry in MeGuffey's Fourth Read
er, "Try, try again ;" there's millions in it;
if it hadn't been for this sublime piece I'd
ward every time that I commenced to craw
fish. Now I would say to the sons and
daughters of Mrs. Columbia, bear in mind
that rich treasure of poetry and act square
up to it. If it hadn't been for, "Try, try
again," where would Commodore Tom
King have been? I don't know; but 1
know this that every time he looses a ferry
boat cither by fire or water ho tries another,
and now, after loosing the Cairo in tho ice
last winter, he 'tried again' and has one ol
tho snuggest, fiisio.il aud pretiest sidewheel
ferryboats afloat. The commodore is now
bettet fixed to accommodate his friends
and patrons than ever before, and he
makes, with his new boat, tho Rosalie
Smoot, fifteen and sixteen trips per day,
between Capo Girardeau, Mo and East
Cape Girardeau, III., staying fifteen min
utes at each lauding. There! I've overshot
my mark; I've got ten miles above Thebes.
Well, its easy enough to come down stream
at this stage of tho river; hero wo are in
sight of the school house, but it looks lone
ly and deserted; yes, school closed there
last Friday with a considerable gain of use
ful knowledge to the pupils, and u hard
and earnest seven month's work for tho
teacher, Mrs. Dr. J. A.M. Gibbs. Yho at
tendance last month not being so large as
luring the winter months on account of
sickness, nnd tho larger pupils from the
country having to work on tho farm, the
roll ol honor docs not contain as many
names as otherwise it would have done.

A Bride's Terror.
Tho follow ing j tohl by the Cheyenne
Sim of recent date:
On tho west-bound Union Paclfio
train was n newly-wedded pair, who
were vm loving nmf lender ns people la
that interesting irondil ion of Jif'o usually
ure. They hud a section in a sleeping
car and were on n bridal trip to tho Piv
cilic coast. Near Sidney a wheel on tho
sleeper w.'.s bp .ken, and tho train
stopped at that, place about an hour to
put on a new pair of wheels. Here,
during Die, delay, Mr. Goodwin, who U
the bridegroom alluded to, got out to
kick no his heels nnd look around, and
whilo ho was absorbing tho beauties of
nature nnd sonio other things about
tlio town, the train, which is ono of
thoso things that doesn't wait for time)
or thn "lied," qiiieily rolled out, leav
ing Mr. Goodwin, and carrying away
his bride. Then there was consterna
tion in Sidney, nnd on board tho Pull
man. The bride was in a stato border
ing on distract ion because other lost
liege, nnd vainly, though frantically,
did the groom put in his best locomotion
to ciilcli Ihe roinaling train. As ho
nnd the bride were one, with a very
clear easo of ":t passenger on board
that was left behind." it was fun to
everybody else except tho two most
deeply iii'lei'eslcil. Foiling to witch the
train on foot, he cl.-tnibered into the
cab of a locomotive which happened let
be pulling nlioiit tin; place, and earn
estly solicited help. The engineer, a
tender-he.'it'led nmn with a tendor, saw
how it w:k and proceeded to obtain
proper nutliorily as quickly as possible,
and started with Mr. Goodwin on a
stern chase after the living train, that
was trying ti make up tin hour of lost
I i mo, and which was proud of a new
pair of wheels. Away the extra loco
motive sped, on Ihe wings of lovo anil
sympathy ami sienm. Goodwin petted
the engineer and tirein:in, and helped
to shovel coal, nnd at Anlelope, thirty
seven miles wosi, the w ihl-cved, pursu
ing husband overtook the heartless cars
that had run away with Iih brand new
wife, and soon they were blooiuingly
happy again in each others' arms.
A Costly Iron-0!ad-
The Inflexible is a costly ship. Her
hull cost nearly jL'.IuO.oiiii, nnd her en
gines and machinery almost another
100,(1(10; but even tho estimates will
not show what tho total expenditure,
direct and indirect, will have been upon
her before she is ready for her trial
commission, and authorities who usual
ly swear by admiralty calculations aro
admitting thai the outlay beforo her
completion may be from 30 to 40 per
cent, nioro than had been originally
expected. The cost of her bydraulio
machinery and appliances is a little
eye-opener. They have been supplied
