There is no longer a question that salt
is a protection to wheat a-jainst the ravages
of chinch bugs. It lias been thoroughly
tested by farmers in the west during the
past year or two and in every case it proved
a success. The salt Bliould bo sown on the
wheat in the early spring, or in the fall if
the bugs are troublesome at that season.
Sowing at either season at the farmer's op
tion and is equally effective.
The sand pits along tho Mississippi

the water can not reach it, and they are now
able to supply the wants of builders with
sand in spite of the high water.

-Pulaski Tatriot: "Mr. and Mrs. Thos.
Whitlock aro very proud over tho arrival of
a bran new daughter. The young lady ar
rived last Tuesday. A man and
girl, whose names we could not learn, wero
caught on tho Cache bridge by a train on
Tuesday last, and barely escaped with their
lives. The man jumped off tho bridgo to
save himself nnd told the girl to lie down
and not try to get up. This injunction was
not obeyed and the girl attempted to raise
her head ami received a severe cut in the
back of the head. Dr. Tuber dressed the
wound, ami they continued their trnmp.
They were bound for Indiana."
wroinane.e vi. n, mc same ueing "an
ordinance to prevent climbing, jumping,
clinging to, or hanging upon street cars, or
obstructing tho same," has received the sig
nature of Mayor Thistlewood, and is pub
lished in Tun Bulletin as one of the en
forcible laws of the city. It imposes
a fine of not exceeding twenty-fivo dollars
upon all persons who may be found "climb
ing, jumping, clinging to, or hanging upon
any street car," within the corporate limits
of the city; and a fine of not less than two
hundred dollars, upon persons guilty of
placing any obstructions upon the tracks of
such street railway. The ordinance meets
a want which the managers of the street
railway have seriously felt. That it may be
strictly enforced against the young scape
graces who aro guilty of the acts con
demned by it, is the wish of tho public and
tho managers aforesaid.
At a meeting of the Halliduy Guards,
held at the ball in the Hibernian engine
house, a sample of the new uniforms which
the company has ordeied was exhibited.
It was ordered from the inanuftfcturers in
the east through the firm of Ooldstine &
Rosonwater in this city. It is elegant in
fact, it is pronounced by persons who
know, to be the handsomest military uni
form in the state. It consists of caps with
white plume, a coat and pants of
navy blue cloth, elegantly trimmed with
gold bruidand buttons; epaulets with white
fringe, and a white leather belt with silver
buckle hearing the monogram, "I. N. O.,"
meaning Illinois National Guards. The
outfit will cost twenty-eight dollars a piece.
A committee of the company will call upon
the citizens some time during this week
for financial aid in their efforts to meet the
bill for the suits when it comes due. Those
who have any pride in a military organiza
tion that will be a credit to the city and
excite the admiration of all. and there
hould be many such in the city, ought to
meet the committee with smiles and a lib
In yesterday's evening paper Mr. Chas.
fiiferling gives vent to feelings of
anger at the following clippinir from the
Blooinington Bulletin, which was repro-
luced in yesterday's issue of The Cairo
Bulletin: "Rutin Mary Baugh's frail
body beat the heart of a moral heroine.
Pure in mind and heart, all her instincts
rebelled against the bad influences of her
mother, and livino in the atmosimierk
OKA SALOON, WITH THE SURROUNDINOH THAT
T'EMrEK.VNCE l'EOl'I.E TELL US ARE TAINTED
with all moral impurities, Mary Baugh
lived a life as pure as sunned snow."
Mr. I'lifferling lielieves that the capitalized
words in the above paragraph contain "an
unnecessary and cruel fling at himself and
an unjust reflection upon saloon-keepers
generally and their families." Mr. Pfi (fur
ling is mistaken; he spoke before be
thought, if he had read the words referred to
thus: "With the surround injs that
I'emi'KUAM K people tell us are tainted
with all moral impurities ," ho
would have understood hat the words con
tained, not only a compliment to himself,
but n negation of one of the most used tem
perance arguments against saloon-keepers
generally, and also well-deserved praise of
the lamented'yoN""; girl toward whom ho
had been so kind.

Tho latest comer among the new com
ets of the year, discovered by Prof. Barnard,
of Nashville, on the night of the president's
death, makes small advances toward visi
bility, for it can yet bo seen only by tho
aid of the telescope. It may, however, sud
denly blaze forth into a famous specimen
of its class, for nothing in the material uni
verse is mom Junaoeoiintablo than tho va
garies of a comet. Tho probability is,
however, that it has fulfilled its mission in
rewarding tho discoverer with a prizo of
1 200, and may incite competitors to re
newed effort to secure the four cometic
prizes still attainable during tho year. It
is worthy of note that four comets nro now

Great Comet B, Hchuborle's Comet C, Bar

B and C have passed their perihelion, nro

places will bo known no more. Comet D
has as yet no tail, but as it has not reached
perihelion, ono may suddenly appear.

The following account of the Fannie
Tatum tragedy at Metropolis, is taken from
the Metropolis Democrat: ''Last Monday
night while the steamer Fannie Tatum was
lying at the factory of Yot, Bigelow & Co.,
a colored roustabout named Tom Jennings
was shot through the heart and instantly
killed by a deck-hand, supposed to be one
Albert King. Tho difficulty arose between
the second mate, J, K. II net, and a yellow
rouster named Tom Davis who had shipped
at Paducah off the Ariadne. The night
was dark and rainy, and Davis tried to per
suade the crew not to work, shirking and
hiding himself from tho mate, who re
proved him and struck down (as tho mate
testified) with a piece of skiff-oar, on the
load of plow handles Davis was carrying
aboard tho boat, to hurry him up. About
this time the deck-hand previously
mentioned, and said to bo a brother
to tho mate, Iluet, came out and
kicked Davis, threatening to shoot
him. With this Davis laid down his load
and clinched the mate (Iluet) cutting him
with a knife. The deck hand drew a pis
tol and began firing, one of tho shots
piercing the heart of Jennings, killing him
instantly. In the niylee Davis let goof tho
mate and cut deck hand King, it iB
not known howfjiously, as he (King,) es
caped to the Kentucky shore in tho morn
ing and has not since been heard of. The
rouster Tom Davis also escaped, supposing
as wo imagine, that ho had killed both of
his antagonists, wdien in fact no ono was
seriously hurt except poor Jenniugs, a
wholly innocent man. Some of ourcitizons
have been very angry with the officers of the
boat about this unfortunate affair, but we
can not find from any evidenco that tho
matter was anything moro than a riot
among tho crew which, tho officers being
asleep, could not prevent. The killing of
Jennings was certainly without cause,
ond tho guilty man King, or whoever he
may bo, ought to bo made to Buffer an cx
trcmo ponalty if ho can bo found. But in
our anxiety to avengo so foul a murder, wo
