Arjother lot of wheat in tho St. Paul
elevator comprising about 132,000 bushels,
will to-day bo posted on tho Chicago board
of trade as in bad condition. This will make
the third lot of wheat that has been re
ported "in bad condition" in Chicago with
in tho last ten days. Tho two tormer
lots comprised about threo hundred and
fifty thousand busheU. One would judge
from these there had been no distressing
failure in the wheat crop of tho country,
and that the quantity of wheat in tho coun
try were vastly greater than tho future de
mand could possibly absorb. It seems
next to criminal that so many thousands of
bushels of breadstuff's should be allowed to
rot in tho elevators and warehouses just to
serve as a basis for wild speculation, when
many of the mills of the country aro still
for the want of grain, tho price of flour ia
going up almost beyond tho reach of the
poor, and tho prospect for a bread famine
in some quarters are so good.

soarchod dillgontly for several hours

trace of the missing satchel or its contents
could bo discovered. Tho correspondent

Cairo praises for its splendid hotel accom
modations (he had stopped at the Halliday)
and curses for its dextrous thieves. The
latter would havo boon more properly direc
ted against himself, however; for a man who
makes his way along an unfrequented river
bank with a lot of satchels in tho dead of
night, and then lets thorn lay unguarded in
a public freight depot in the suburbs of tho
city, must not expect to be entirely safe
against unprincipled night prowlers.
Mr. DcsRocher,the up-town gardner, is
actively engaged in completing his plans
for tho improvement of St. Mary's park and
in enlisting the interest of his friends. He
has spoken to several of the aldormen, ex
plaining to them the benefits the city would
derive from the successful operation of his
pinna and they have given him to under
stand that they would favor him. Mr. Des
Rocher is in dead earnest; he has the
ability to plan and the determination and
means to carry out, such improvements in
the park, as will make it a most dolightful
resort for tho people of Cairo and to
strangers. It is his object to make the
park an attractive place for tho young and
the old who may wish to spend an hour or
two on Sundays or any other day in a pleas
ant drive, walk, or enjoy a chat in some
cool, green bower by the sido of a musical
fouutain, and amid the sweet odors
of many flowers, over a plate of ice cream,
or a glass of lemonade. At present the
park is a reproach to the city ; it is worse
than a howling wilderness, because it is the
nightly resort for the scum of the city.
Men and women, young and old,black and
white, gather there and make the night air
resound with tho discharge of weapons,
loud hollowing, curses and foul epithets. It
has gotten to be a place where no respecta
ble person dares to go any more than to
any of tho acknowledged sinks of wicked
ness in the lower portion oi the city, with
out risking his or 'her good name. Some
thing needs to be dono to rescue tho only
public resort in the city from the disgrace
into which it has been allowed to sink. A
city of twelve or fifteen thousand inhabi
tants must have some place where the re
spectablo portion of the community can
go and spend a few hours in pleasant and
innocent reaction, freo from contact with
the coarser element, or the temptations of
wicket pleasures where the young people
ot the city can gather on summer evenings
and hold out-door carnivals. The city au
thorities havo already as many irons in the
fire as they can well manifgo now, hence it
is not likely that, if left entirely to them
selves, tho park will receive any attention
from them during tho next three
or four years. But Mr. Des
Rocher lives in close proximity to
the park; he can aniTwlirraiitted,
rescue it from its present wild, disreputable
state and make it a beautiful, popular and
high-toned resort for the people of Cairo.
What Mr. Des Rc-chor asks of the council
in consideration ot his work of improve
ment is yet a matter of some uncertainty,
but will appear in due time. A leaso of
the park for a certain number of years, a
small appropriation, and the sole
privilege to sell refreshments, will
probably bo the extent of his demand.
Of course it is Mr. Des Rochcr's main pur
pose to make money out of the park, and
he argues that the more attractive the park
is, the more popular it will be as a public
resort and the more profitable it will be to
him. And of course, too, it will bo the
city council's object in dealing with Mr.
Des Rocher to make an agieement by the
terms of which tho citizens are to bo furn
ished with a park of which they
may be proud, tho improvement of which
is worth what it may cost and thn en
joyment of which shall not bo the price of
HE WILL LIVE.
Although some doubts were entertained
by Drs. Parker and Gordon as to tho recov
ery of the man Woodgate, who was run
over on tho Illinois Central railroad track
on Saturday morning, it is now reasonably
certain that ho will recover. Thero was
somo reason for doubt ia tho niattar becauso
tho wounds had been allowed to remain un
attended too long, much blood had boen
lost and tho wounded parts were inflamed
and swollen. But tho man's robust consti
tution carried him through and the pros
pects for his recovery aro good. A great
deal is duo to tho care ho is receiving at
tho hands of the Sisters of Loretto.
The circumstances ot the case have been
the subject of much comment among tho
citizens and tho opinion most generally ex
pressed is, that tho case was ono which
comes properly under the care of tho Illi
nois Central railroad company. Tho offi
cers of tho company hero aro being vigor
ously denounced becauso of their long
neglect of tho man, and among those
who indulge in theso denunciations
aro many railroad men. They believed
that it was tho duty of the agents of the
railroad company hero to take care of the
man who had boon injurod by its agents
and property, and, bolieving this, the office
men of tho company and those of the Chi
cago, St. Louis and New Orloans
railroad contributed liberally toward
helping Mr. Fitch, of tho Cairo and Vln
cennes railroad, who had alone generously
undertaken the responsibility of sending
Woodgato to the hospital, to boar tho ex
pense of maintaining him thoro until ho
was either Cured or dead. Twenty-six dol
lars and ninety cents was thus raised
among the men in tho two railroad offices
and more is promised and moro can bo had
for thu mere asking. Any responsible man
can raise fifty dollars within a quarter of an
hour on any one of tho business
streets in the city for a purposo, such as
actuated these railroad men, and if the
agonU of tho company, in tho absence of
authority to act for the road, had but said
tho word, the money would have been
raised as 'easily at eight o'clock in the
morning as at two o'clock in the afternoon.
It is admitted that tho company's res
ponsibility was not a legal one; but neither
was the city's responsibility a legal ono.
It is also admitted that the city's responsi
bility was a moral one; but the company
was also morally responsible. And it must
bo admitted by tho company's apologists
that its moral responsibility was greater
and primary to that of the city, because
the man was mangled .by the
employes and upon the premises of the
company. Had Woodgato como to his in
juries by the act of any person, on or by
any property, acting tor, or belonging to,
the city, then tho caso would havo been
different it would havo been reversed
and the authorities of the city would merit
tho severest denunciation, had they failed
to render needed assistanco to the poor vic
tim. It is unnecessary to go into a lengthy
argument to prove that Cairo and Alexan
der county have more than their share of
the floating poor to care fur everybody
who knows the facts acknowledges that.
The marine hospital here does fully as
much at all seasons of tho year as any like
institution in the land, St. Louis and New
Orleans not excepted, and it is a notorious
fact that, during tho winter season, it
does more than twice as much
as some of tho most important hospitals in
the country. The reports of Dr. Carter will
show this, and they will also show that
never a month passes but what from eight
to fifteen applicants aro rejected, who then
apply to the city and county authorities aud
to the people of Cairo direct for assbtanco.
That in nearly all cases they receive such
assistanco can also be shown; that
in some cases they received it
tardily is not denied nor can it be wondered
at, for BUch is doubtless tho caso every
where. The minutes of the city council
will show that money has been appropria
ted nearly every month to defray the hos
pital and burial expenses of some poor
tramp, the victim, in most cases, of his own
neglect. It is a lamentable fact, to which
Marino Surgeon Carter will testify,
that in nearly all cases taken
to thu hospital by tho city
the patieut's maladly proves fatal; but this
is not, as has been intimated, becauso the
city is usually so tardy in lending aid that
the poor wretches aro usually beyond the
reach ot medical aid. The tault lies not
with the city, but with the victim himself,
who lives the life of a tramp until he is sick
from undue exposure and then,
in search of public assistance,
wanders from place to place until he natur
ally gravitates to Cairo, where he lands
pennyless, hungry, weak and in a dying
condition. He applies to the hospital,
where, not being a marine, he is refused
admittance. He then lays down in some
obscure spot, whore he is found a day or
two afterwards in a dying state by the au
thorities and sent to the hospital at tho city's
expense. The case of the man left at the
stone depot by an up river steamer some
timo ago and found there in a dying state
few hours aftorwards, is a case in point.
The fare ticket found in the man's clothing
showed that he had bought passage for
Cairo and no further. lie was brought here
in a pennyless, friendless and in a dying
condition, contrary to the laws of the state.
He did not die at the depot, as is asserted
by tho evening pBper, but was sent to the
hospita!,whcro ho breathed his last Boon af
ter and from whence he was buried at thu
expense of tho city. That there are cases
and too many of them in which thu city au
thorities defer lending asaistence where it
is needed, is admitted; but such coses aro
usually of a less urgent character and tho
victims aro citizens of other cities and
counties tho authorities of which havo im
posed them upon Cairo. Cairo has always
taken care of her own poor ami sick; has
also always rendered assistenco to indigent
strangers, who were seriously alllicted and
Mayor Thintlewood would doubtless,
though unauthorized by law, havo given
prompt attention to poor old Woodgate
had not the Illinois Central railroad com
pany boon primarily responsible for the
man's condition and better able to bear the
expense than is the city.
The year 1881, A. D., has been an un
usual ono as regards tho events, both terres
trial and celestial, which have marked it so
far. It has boen a year of storms, earth
quakes, drouths and other disturbances in
tho physical system of the earth, while, in
human affairs, thero have been numerous,
though not great wars, much social and po
litical disorder and dissatisfaction, culmin
ating in tho murder of one of tho most
powerful rulers in tho world, and almost
the murder iif another of equal dignity and
importance. Moreover socialistic and other
political ' herosies have been widely and
loudly preached, and riots and labor strikes
have prevailed tn many parts of thj earth.
Conflagration, murder and all sorts ot
crimes of violence and dishonesty have
been remarkably numerous; crops have
failed, and great damage to lifo aud prop
erty has occurred. Altogether, the outlook,
although not alarming is not reassuring,
and many peoplo aro anxious and uneasy,
and tho superstitious are disposed to read
in current events inauspicious harbingers of
a hateful and dark destiny, The astrono
mers who read tho heavens tell of tho two
comets that havo been blazing in the sky;
of the vast and unusual spots and blotches
that have appeared like a hideous eruption
on tho glowing face of the sun ; ot a great red
spot 22,000 miles across that bIiows on
tho surface of the planet, Juptier, and of
the unusual conjunctions and groupings of
stars and planets which have not before
been known for thousands of years. In
addition to these there havo been other
signs and wonders in the sky. On the Cth
instant bonis very strange phenomena were
visiblo in the eostern sky, which also ex
tended, on the 7th instant, to this city in
the form of a Btrango dimness of the sun
all through the day, and of the moon
through the night. At Boston
from early morning to sunset tho atmos
phere was in a most curious condition,
exciting much comment and in some in
stances creating alarm. While the air as
viewed from a window or looking up into
the sky appeared to bo free from fog or
mist, the sun was totally obscured. The
atmosphere was prevadod with a yellowish
light, which lent a strange appearance to
every object. On the common tho grass
presented a most unnatural appearance, its
livid green looking as though the results of
a coat of paint. Gas jets which ordinarily
show a yellowish light, burned with a white
brilliancy that made them resemble elec
tric lights In all directions distances
appeared to bo shortened. Through the
windows could be seen star-liko points of
white lightjesembling little electric lamp,
but being in reality gas jets. Tho phe
nomena was noticeable in New Hampshire
and as far east as Portland. C. F. Em
erson, professor of natural philosophy and
astronomy, Dartmouth college, said it must
be something in tho atmosphere which ab
sorbs shorter and long wave lengths, leav
ingonly those which give the color of yel
low and green. Ho thought it might be
owing to pollen from fir and pine trees,
together with smoke from forest fires in
Canada. At Providence the day was exces
sively dark accompauiod with great sultri
ness. The day consumption of gas com
menced at noon. The city ot' Hartford
Rhamd in the darkness ot other parts of
New England. Gas had to Ikj used every
where and the light was as white as an elec
tric liyht. At L'mu' Branch a remarkable
mirage just as the president arrived showed
sixty-seven vessels going up and diattt the
New Jersey coast. Theoc occurrences took
place on the day the prewdent was moved
to Long Branch and if they were auguries
of anything to come it is hoped they fore,
told only good to the wounded chief mag
istrate. However this may le, it would
appear that the year 13S1 is to go
ou record in history bs a peculiar one, but
disregarding the wild theories of .the astrol
ogiers and the superstitions of the religion
ists who periodically predict the end of the
world to be at hand, and consulting tho an
nals of history, it will be seen that nothing,
so far, has happoned but has its precedent
in tho past. Tho world we live in and its
inhabitants seem to be in close sympathy,
aud Buffer or prosper together. There are
cycles of good and evil fortune which come
upon all things terrestial at certain periods,
and if men have not sufficiently mastered
the laws that govern these changes to be
able to predict their coming they can at
least look back through the pages of his
tory and seo that both calamity and pros
perity have from time immemorial had
their periods and seasons of ebb and flow.
The earth has experienced startling chauges
and tremendous catastrophies in the past,
and similar occurrences are possible for the
futuro. The tremendous drama of the
creation and annihilation of nature's works
has been going on for a long time and is
probably not yet playad out. The inhabi
tants of the earth may be admitted to some
of its sceances and spectacles.
