room a day or two ago, and last night ho
lit the gas, swung tho burner (which is at
tached to the window closo by tho window)
to one side, and left tho room. He had not
observed before ho left that the flame was
touching the window casing, and it was
therefore not until tho latter had begun to

the sidewalk below. Tho flames wero ex

Col. T. H. Gausmann, business agent
of Mick Roberts' ilumpty Dumpty, arrived

the appearance of his company in tho new

of the present month. This is considered
the best Ilumpty Dumpty troupe that ever
attempted to amuse the American public.
Ono great feature belonging to it is its
three clowns, each one a star of tho first
magnitude. Col. Gaussman is a genial,
social and appreciative gentleman, and, of
course, is greatly pleased with Cairo's new
opera bouse and particularly with its mam

In his rounds of the city a day or two
ago officer Olmsted, always on the lookout
for violators of tho law, espied a crowd of
boys outside of tho city limits, near the
Wabash incline, engaged in gambling with
nickels. Slowly he made his way toward
them, but if he entertained any idea of cap
turing them without serious trouble, he was
disappointed. One of the boys caught sight
of him before become within a hundred
yards of them and gave the alarm. The
result was that tho nickels we.o hpeeauy
snatched up and pocketed, while a number
of rocks wero gathered together and a game
of "marbles" (?) begun before the officer
could reach them. These young rascals
have become so sharp by their frequent
experiences in tho courts of law that they
are never at a loss for a scheme to deceive
the officers and for covering up any proof
of guilt that may exist. That tho groupo
of boys referred to, vere guilty of a viola
tion of law, was amply proven by tho fact
that one of them scampered over the incline
embankment nnd toward the cotton woods
at a great rate of spcod, as soon as the offi
cer's approach had been noticed.
Before adjourning last Saturday, the
grand jury found an indictment against
Rev. Jacob Bradley and the man Stephen
Parker for stealing a barrel of flour from
the Egyptian mills. The particulars of the
case, m far as they have been ascertained
by the officers, aro quito interesting. It
seems that early Saturday morning Mr
Adams, the head miller of tho establish
ment, noticed that ono barrel of flour was
missing. Ho searched about tho premises
fur truces of it, and was rewarded by seeing
a track of (lour, evidently mado by rolling
a barrel of that article, along the levee
toward Eighteenth street. Ho followed it
up, and it lead him down tho Illinois Cen
tral track, on Ohio levee, to Eighteenth
street; down tbis street toward tho com
mons back of Walnut street, and through
these to a point near the house of the
Rev. Jacob, where it suddenly ceased. Mr.
Adams was puzzled aud turned back to
inform tho officers of the theft. Officer
Mahanny accompanied him, and both went
over tho samo route together. Arrived at
the point where tho track of flour coasud,
the officer, after soino investigation, con
cluded to interview tho Rev. Jacob, and
ho did. Rev. Jacob met the officer at the
door, and expressed a desire to know the
reason why he was so unexpectedly honor
ed with a call from the officer. While
making this inquiry, tho Rev. Jacob mado
confused, aud vain endeavors to brush off
and to hide ccrtitin suspicious looking
blotches of flour all over his front. The
officer informed Jacob that he was in search
of information as to the whereabouts of a
barrel of the stuff of life, which had disap
peared from tho Egyptian mills during tho
previous night. Rov. Jacob was surprised,
of course, that such an inquiry should bo

made of him; his tine sense of honor was
shocked beyond measure and the angry
passions surged within him; but ho was
prudent ho only answered, with as much
composure as ho could command, that he
knew nothing whatever about it. With this
ho was about to dismiss tho officer, but this
individual manifested a disposition to tarry
yet a little while, which, it was evident,
was harrowing to the immaciil soul of
tho lie. Jacob. The officer had caught,
through the partially open door, a glimpse
of a flour barrel, carelessly covered by an
old rubber coat; he had also been struck
with the Rev. Jacob's just-been-through-the-mill
appearance, and, therefore, he
would see what he could see beyond the
threshold which the Rev. Jacob bo faithful
ly guarded. Ho drew from his bosom a
paper having an unmistakably legal appear
ance, which he said was a search warrant
and by the authority of which ho claimed tho
privilege to enter and search tho premises
of tho Rev. Jacob. The latter protested,
mildly at first, moro vehemently later,
and finally dodged behind the door and
brought forth a water bucket filled with
flour, saying: "See heah, dis' do way I
buys my flour; I ncber bought a barrel o'
flour in my life; dis' de way I buys all my
flour." But tho officer doubted tho truth
of the speaker's statement, and entered the
house in spite of tho latter's vigorous pro
tests. After looking around tho room a
while, and having cast a scrutinizing look
at a heap of brown sugar spread upon a
sack stretched in the centre of the room,
and, upon spots and streaks of flour all
over tho floor, bo made straight for tho
covered barrel in the corner. Tho barrel
was full of flour, which had been thrown
in loosely and but recently; tho officer
called upon Mr. Adams to examine the
floor, which ho did and pronounced it to bo
the quality of flour he had missed from the
mills. Tho Rev. gentleman was dumb
founded for a while, but soon recovered
himself and said to a question from the
officer that he had bought the flour from
Stephen Parker that very morning. But
the officer was satisfied. The Rov. Jacob
had first said that ho hadn't a bit of flour
in the house; then ho had produced a buck,
et of flour from behind tho door, with tho
remark that ho always bought his flour by
bucketfuls, and now, in contradiction of
all this, there was a barrel of flour in tho
house which he claimed to have bought
that morning tho officer told tho Rev.
gentleman that ho must come along to tho
court house (meaning the county jail.) Tho
latter prepared to go, but thought it very
bard that ho should be thus persecuted, and
torn away from his flock, which would now
be left at the mercy of the wolves and Imps
of darkness. But ho wont and was con
fined in Jail. Tho offlcor then wont to

that tho Rev. Jacob had betrayed the whole

of guilt. Ho (rarkof) said that be had

route mentioned and markod out by the
