Ubnally crowded with the members of the
Cairo Reform Club and others, and the pro

temporary secretary. The usual sinking
and sppoch making was indulged in.
luring which several new accessions

OLD TRIM'S LETTER.
Donciola, September 21st, 1881.
Since our last letter to Tub Bulletin,
the extremely warm weather has tempered
to a degree that makes living very pleasant.
The prolonged drouth has also had its day,
and copious showers of rain visited us.
Everybody now scorns cheerful aud in a
good humor, and all tho people aro looking
for the bright side of human affairs. 1 hose
who have been brooding over Mother
Shi ptou's prophecies, and expecting that
the final consumatiou ol ail terrestrial
things was at the door, havo concluded to
dismiss the subjoct from their minds, aud
go to sowing wheat. All the more sensible
farmers iu Union county kept "rodoeming
the tiinc"by keeping their planes sharpened
and plowing bravely on through the dry
weather, so that when tho raliiB should
coiuo they would bo lound ready to cast the
precious seod in tho ground, thereby mak
ing provisions for luture use. Considerable
tramping 'round among the farms, con
vinces your scribbler that there has boon
too low an estimate put upon tho corn crop
ot Utim county. Wo shall gather a full
half crop, and having hud a fino crop of
wheat, oats and hay, we must say tho out
look is quite cheerful. It is true it will re
quire good economy among a goodly num
ber of our citizens to make "cuds meet,"
for all havo not fared alike, aomo having
better crops than others. Viewed from a
correct sttnd-point, our opinion is that tho
groat drought and boat of summer of 1881
will eventuate in a blessing to tho people.
Scientific ma have, loug ago, learned
that deep froczing In winter,, with an kj
casional droughty year, gives our soil con
tinued fertility. ' , , .
Tho thtco most important events to tho
people ot Union county circuit court,
Southern Ills, fair and Union county fair-
are now numbered with ' all ' othor past
events. Not having attended cither of
the fairs, wo of course have nothing to
write concerning them. ' We know that
Rro. Uouton will tell all, and just 1 a little
more in his Bublime and truthful Jonesboro
Gazette. We wero at circuit court a few
lays for the purfoso of hearing the "Don
gola tramp murder trial," tlr.t has been
hanging tiro for eighteen months. Five
of tho accufled had their trial, aud the ver
diet of the jury waa "not guilty." The
accused had eight lawyers employed and
they all declared that the boyi were innocent
and of course tho jury thought so too. Tho
question now is who did kill tho tramp.
Thirteen partially worn out switches thaf,
hail been used to whip tho tramp, were
shown to the jury, and it was . proved that
one of the accused told of the whipping
and pointed out tho place where thj
switches wero cut, and tho ground upon
which the tramp was whipped, and other
things were proved as clear as the noon day
sun, showing that the tramp was murdered;
but by whom we will not say but reserve to
ourself the right to think just what we
Wheat sowing is the order of the day,
and quite a good bredth will be bowu.
A good boom of business has Btruck
Dongola, tho larger part of it centering at
Neibauer is buying wheat and manufac
turing the finest grades of flour westftf the
The school in Dongola opened on the
10th instant, with a full attendance. The
teachers aro all experienced in teaching,
and we predict for Dongola, a good school.
It is hoped by many of the patrons, that,
the disturbing element that lias heretofore
existed among some of the pHtrons, may
not be revived any more, but that all unite
in a hearty support ot tho cause of educa
tion. Our highly esteemed teacher, John
Ii. Bean.i, who so faithfully conducted our
school for three consecutive terms, is no
moremnong us, but is holding forth as
principal in the Anna school. We congrat
ulate the Anna folks, in so opportune a se
lection of a teacher.
Dongola's redeeming qualities are im
proving. It is true she still adheres tenac
iously to her syBtom of giving license, to
sell intoxicants, but some of our disturbing
citizens have moved away, and may they
ino loul murdering ot the poor
tramp will soon Im: forgotten, and as the
trial of those who were accused of the
ctime hits failed to fasten the guilt ou
them, it to u certaiu extent wipes the statu
from Dongola, and may such an occurrence
never besmirch her afain.
Mr. George Poor has quit farming and
moved to Dm, gola and has a position in R.
M. Davis it S. H. Poor's flouring mill.
W. T. Freeze, our police magistrate and
while here one of our best citizens, has sold
his Dongola property and moved to Mound
City. Mr. Freeze at the August examina
tion in Mount Vernon was admitted to the
bar of Illinois and kjiiiid a doubt will
make a complete success as a lawyer.
