The other day in St. Louis a largo

few weeks ago tho old Overton hotel at
Memphis, formerly a leading resort for tho
traveling public, fell to tho ground, but
hurting no one. It is shameful such flimsy
houses are built for people to risk their
lives in. It was probably simply a miraclo
that these man traps did not fall down
when they wero full ol guests. When
viewing the ruins trf these structures and
contemplating tho loss of lito their down
fall might have occasioned, it becomes mat

Vennor, the Canadian weather prophet,
makes tho following predictions for tho
ensuing two months: October Entering
cold ami wet; heavy rains during tho first
week, with probably snow falls in many
sections, between the 7th and 10th. Cold
mid wintry woathcr on thd4tli, 15th and
10th. Warmer weather on tho 18th, 19th
and 20th. Wet every other day for the
rest of tho month. November Not much
fino weather again until tho 4th and 5th,
when a very fino and open term is proba
ble. The Bulletin offico will, this week,
receivo from tho manufacturer a new ma
chine, one that will bo appreciated in this
section, as it is tho first ever brought to
Southern Illinois, and thero is now nothing
of tho kind within a hundred and fifty
miles of Cairo. It is not as large, but costs
more than a printing press, and works to a
charm. It is a "round hole" perforator,
and is bought expressly for use in the
manufacture of "The Bulletin Pen and
Pencil Scratch-books." Theso aro manu
facturcd from pure juto manilla, with a sur
face that is sized for ink or pencil. The
stub will be, hereafter, perforated and
stitched, that a leaf may bo taken out in
any part without damage to the tablet. Tho
machine will also be used in perforating
the stubs ot checks, drafts, receipts, blank
notes, etc., which will bo manufactured in
largo lots and kept on salo at The Bulle
It is an invariable rule that tho man
who is stingy and penurious about adver
tising is stingy and penurious in his other
business transactions. Tho same business
spirit and enterprise that prompts a nier
cluuit to use printer's ink liberally in mak
ing his business known, prompts hiui to
deal liberally with his customers so that he
may hold their trade. Tho man who sits
in his store and waits for customers to bunt
him up does not have many of them, and,
consequently, he must inako tho most out
of those he has. On the other hand, tho
man who, week alter week, invites tho pub
lic, through the medium of the newspaper,
to come and examine his goods, telling
them when he has new goods, and when
special bargains aro being offered, natural
ly attracts more trade than his sluggish
neighbor, and he can afford to sell his goods
cheaper. In addition to this, tho reading
public is indebted to advertisers for enabl
ing them to get cheap newspapers. Wero
it not for the revenue derived from adver
tising papers that aro sold .for $1.59 per
yenr could not bo purchased for four times
that amount. Theso are facts worth con
sidering when you buy goods, and buyers
will always find that they act tor their own
interest when they patronize tho liberal ad
vertiser. On Saturday night, about seven
o'clock, while Henry Franks, tho jailer at
Bloomington was removing tho prisoners
to their proper cells, ho was attacked by
one named Charles Tierce, alias Howlett,
who grasped a rovolver from the hip-pock-el
of the jailer, and before proper resistance
could be made by that official, the latter
was shot at threo times. Ono bullet passed
through his heart, death instantly occur
ring. News of the murder, in a few mo
ments, spread like wildfiro throughout the
city, and Boon a mob numbering fifteen
hundred to two thousand pcoplo gathered
at tho jail demanding vengeance on tho
prisoner. Sheriff Atter and other officials
attempted to keep back tli3 mob, and did
all possible to quell the excitement, which
every moment was becoming greater. In
their fury the mob broke down tho iron
grating of tho windows, and doors, and tho
officers found that it was useless to resist it.
The crowd soon filled tho jail, ond tlio cell
door in which tho muiderer was confined
was broken open. A rope was produced, and
it was soon placed around Pierce's neck. Ho
was taken from tho jail accompanied by
the exultant yells of tho mob, to a trco
across tho street and hanged, lito becoming
extinct in a few moments. The execution
was witnessed by at least 3,000 pcoplo.
Transportation by barges on tho Mis
sissippi river has become the solution of
the great problem of restoring to the river
its position as tho grout highway for tho
commerce of tlio west. Tho palatial steam
era that float on its waters and onco nioiiO'
polized tho freight and passengor traffic of
the Mississippi valley, having found them
selves unable to competo in cheap freights
with tho railways and still less able to com
pete in speed, wero placed atagreat disad
vantage, and forced to abaudon all the
transportation business except that which
the railways could not reach, or did not
possess the ability to carry. Tlio railways
crossing the country at right angles to tho
courso of tho river, and reaching the At-
antic seaboard at the nearest and most
convenient points, becaino tho . great car
riers of the products of tho Mississippi Val-
ey, and poured into eastern ports much ot
the commerce that had onco sought Now
Orleans. This city, for yoars without ft
railway reaching out to tho rich and rapidly
growing regions of tho west and north wcBt,
and finding commerce diverted more and
moro from the river route, seemed to havo
lett but one hope, and that was to restoro to
tho river tho capacity to transport freights
moro cheaply than could bo done by the
railway. Tho buccobbIuI solution to tlllB i
problem has been found in the barge line
Now, a small, cheaply handed, but power
ful steam tug, witli a very small crew
will move upon tho river in ono tow,
six enormous barues, carrying at
least forty thousand bushels of grain each
or an aggregate of a quarter of a million
bushels as a single cargo. Tho mochinery
lor doing this business is ho simple and in
expensive, when compard with tho threo
palatial steamboats of tho old stylo, with
their costly appointmont and numerous
crews that onco would havo been require'
to do tho work.it is readily seen how vast
reduction ot cxponso has been accom
plished. Tho bargo system is, however,
merely in its infancy, and, without doubt,
it has capabilities that have not yet been
reached, so that it is fair to suppose that
tho minimum of cost for transportation on
tho river has not yet been arrived at, and
still furthei reductions will in timo bo real
i.ed. Tho importance, then, of tho bargo
lines can scarcely bo overstated, and it will
bo of interest to know something of tho ex
tent of their preparation for tbo coining
season's business. Two important compa
nies havo recently beon consolidated with
greatly increased capital, and greatly en
larged facilities for doing the work. Bo
sides, the present fleet of tho combined
corporations, which consists of thirteen
towboats and 89 barges, the company has
contracts mado for an additional fleet which
will swell their total tonnago to 2U tow
boats and 100 barges, with a capacity of
9,000,000 bushcts of grain for a singlo trip,
and a capacity for an average season, ac
cording to estimates, of one hundred mil
lion bushels. The people who are at the
head of this enormous enterprise do not
propose to make these great preparation
for nothing. They are going to do tho bus
iness they are prepared for. They know
just what they are doing, and have the cap
ital to carry out their designs.
SAD ENDING OF A YOUNG LIFE.
A NOBLE TOUNfl CilKL DESTHOYS IIEltSEI.F
BECAUSE OF A MOTH EH 8 SHAMEFUL I'Ell
At 9:15 o'clock yesterday morning, in a
neatly furnished room up stairs in Mr,
Charles Pfifferliug's residence on tho south
Bide of Seventh street near Commercial ov
enuo, Mary Baugh, a good-looking young
girl of seventeen, shot herself with an . old
rusty, four barreled, revolving pistol, of
about 32 calibre, the ball entering tho right
temple, lodging in the left side of
the face and causing immediate death
A little six year-old sister was the
only eyc-wituess to tho rash act; but the
report was heard by others in tho house,
who rushed up stairs under various lmpreB
sious, and found tho poor victim lying in
her bed, still, cold and covered with blood
her hands crossed over her breast, and tho
revolver, .vith one barrel empty, lying
across her knees.
Sho was a neice to Mr
diaries Puilcriing, to whom sho came
aWt a year ami a half ago in order to
escape from the bad influences of her
mother, who, sho said, was seeking to in
duce her to depart from the path of virtue
Evir since she came to her uncle's home
she proved herself to be a noble, industri
ous young cirl, whoso only aim in life
seemed to bo to rare for and educate her
little sister, and to make for herself a com
fortable living by honest and constant toil
with the needle ami sewing nnchun.
Sho was constantly employed and highly
respected for her gentle disposition, iatelli
gence and industry, by nearly all the
families in the inuneliate neighborhood in
which she lived and was also very popular
among the young people. But sho was not
permitted to lead her life in peace. Her
mother, who occupies apartments in a dig'
reputable house on Ohio levee, refused to
part with her so easily. Herself wallow
ing in the deepest ooze of moral degreda-
tion for years, she is, like many other poo
pie of both sexes, incapable of conceiving
of a character against which the poisoned
darts of wicked cunning aro powerless
She still believed that she could drag her
daughter into' the sumo cesspool with her
self if she tried the rightexpedieuts. Ilenco
sho was persistent in her
efforts to induce Mary to como back to her
Sho wrote letters, persuading at first then
threatening; sho Bought and found opportU'
nitiestoseo tho young girl in the street,
or at Mr. Ptifferling's home, when tho latter
wasout, knowing that sho dared not como
when ho was in. These interviews, vainly
sought to bo avoided by tho young girl,
always ended in a positive, indignant ro
fusal on the part of Mary to leave tho home
of her kind undo. At last, on tho 3d of
May, this year, tho scheming mother tried
another, and, what she ' believed to bo, an
irrcsistablo, expedient to accomplish her
vilo purpose. The castle of chastity which
she had in vain besieged with prayers and
threats, was now attacked with a moro
formidublo weapon. Sho took ninety dol
lars of the money which tho girl had
herself earned and given to her, uud do-
posited it in the Enterprise savings bank to
Mary's credit. Sho men gave tho bank
book to Mary on condition that she (Mary)
would como homo and livo with her. Mary
took the book, determined to use tho money
n supporting and educating her little sister
Emma, who was still living with her
mother; but still refused to return to her
mother's houso. Mrs. Baugh now liecamo
angry. Seeing that her last and her best
effort had failed in its purposo, sho was
willinir to givo up; but sho wanted tho
money back, and, with tho view ot obtain-

mg it sho continued her visits to her
daughter. During these visits sho would
scold her daughter and maltreat her,
threatening to kill her, and only a few
weeks ago she met her on the street
and struck her in the face. Poor Mary bore
these outrages as best sho could without
complaining; but that she suffered intense
mental agony from the mere fact that tho
woman who subjected her to these many
indignities was her mother, was evident
from somo of her utterances, for she threat
ened upon several occasions to end her own
life, A few days ago she was taken down
with a lever and since then she has had the
almost constant attention of some member
of Mr. Pfifferliug's family. Though she
gave no evidence of any mental abberra-
tion, it is proiaolc that her hot Oram was
busy with the thought that had occupied it
during saner moments. Yesterday morning
her little sister, Eniniu, visited her asshe had
done often before. Little Lmuia went to
her sister's room and found her lying quiet
lyinbed. xVfter somo minutes spent in
flippant conversation Mary arose and left
tho room. Little Emma followed her out
in the ball way, saw her enter the front
bed chamber where Mr. Plifferling was
still sound asleep, saw her take a revolver
from asniall bureau drawer, silently return
to her own room, lie down upon
her bed and cock the pistol. Little Emma
had, until now, watched this proceedin
with apparent unconcern. She now became
alarmed ami asked her sister what she was
going to do. Mary only replied: "Sit
down nnd be a good little girl, and I'll give
you some candy," Emma obeyed, but
watched her sister closely and suspiciously
Sho saw her stretch herself straight upon
ner nacK, ciraw mo cover partially over
her lower limbs, raise the cocked revolver
to her right temple, heard the loud report
ond saw the weapon thrown violently upon
tho lap, while the blood spurted from nose
and mouth over the bed and gown of her
sister; the hand that had wrought this ter
riblo work sank quietly to rest upon tho
breast that had known no evil,
and theface assumed that expression of per
feet innoceno which characterized the tor
tured soul which hail but a moment beforo
been present thero. Thus she was found a
moment after by other members of tho
household, and it was thus sho lay when
the coroner's jury and newspaper men saw
her a few hours al forwards.
Tho coroner's jury found a verdict in ac
cordanco with the circumstances as above
related and tho remains were turned over
to Mr. Pfifferling for burial. Further de
tails will appear to-morrow.
