An illiterate colored man has been

Tho Anna Advocate says: "It is said
that a democratic editor in Southern Illi
nois will soon retire from the newspaper
business and go toward the 'Sunny South,'
where the 'festive reb' is plentiful. No
regrets un this side of the houBe." A rebel
is a citizen, or subject who unlawfully takes
up arms against the constituted authorities
of a country or a nation, to deprive them of
tho supreme power. Does tho Advocato
mean to insinuate that there are such citi
zen in tho south?
A few weeks ago a case of supposed
poisoning by eating cheese was reported to
tho Bulletin. Mess. Smith Brothers returned
the balance of the checso supposed to have
been poisoned to the manufacturers who in
turn sent a part of it to Purdue university,
Indiana, where it was anali.ed and proved
entirely free from anything poisonous. Tho
professor pronounced it of extraordinary
richness and that may have causod the sick
ness, or tho poisoning must have come
from some other cause.
A poor fellow an inmate of tho hos
pital, half crazed with a burning fevor
and but half clad, escaped from his room
in the hospital yesterday forenoon and
traversed the streets of tho city for an hour
or more. His wild appcaianco created ap
prehension in all hornet, for it led them to
think of madmen and demonsof the woods;
and, therefore, he was given the walk with
out any molestation. It was not until ho
had reached the heart of the city that he
was captured and lead back to the hospital.
When two men took hold of him, one on
either side, ho turned from ono to tho other,
and exclaimed with the excitement of deli
rium : "You are going to take me back
for them to put a head on me?" But
being assured that such a catastrophe would
not occur, ho went quietly along, and was
again confined to bis bed.
Tho law concerning township organ
ization in this State constitutes the super
visor, assessor and town clerk of the town
a board of health. See Ilaine's Township
Organiz. Laws, new edition, p. 103, It is
made the duty of the board to make and en
force rules and regulations tending to check
tho spreading of contagious diseases within
the limits of the town. The town clerk is
tho clerk of the board, and is required to
keep a full record o( all its doings and re
port the hiune to the annual town meeting,
Thiidim'iihu of mall-pox,one of the most
danueroiiH of all contagious disuses, seems
to bu preVHiling in the country to quite an
alarming extent. Tho board of health of
every town in thu State cannot ho too early
in taking action to prevent tho spread of
this disease in their town.
-Of tho wedding of Mr. W. P. Minnich
and Mins Emma Brown at Villa Ridge on
tho 5t!i instant, a correspondent of tho
PulaHki Patriot says in its last issuo : This
event has long been lookod for by a largo
circle ot friends and acquaintances. Villa
Ridge has not been favored by so happy an
occasion for some tinio, and, siuco these
people aro widely known, the affair was ro
garded with much interest, and will long
bo remembered. Tho relatives of tho f ami
lies and a few intimate frlouds assembled at
the residence of the bride's mother to wit
ness tne ceremony. At half past eight
o'clock tho brido and groom accompanied
by Miss Faunio Koouco and Mr. Alex. B.
Brown, as bridesmaid and groomsman, took
their places under a handsome evergreen
horse shoe enclosing tho letters W. and E.,
and having tho words "good luck" worked
upon it in flowers. Rev. Mr. Olmstoad per
formed tho ceremony, prefaced by a few ap
propriate rcmarkB. Offering congratulot
tions and serving refreshments occupiod
Borne time, aftcrwk-ich the brido favored
tho company with several vocal solos. The
remainder of tho evening was spent in
pleasant conversation, and wishes for the
two whoso wedded life began so happy.
Tho bride's costume was an elegant navy
blue Surah-silk with train. The people of
Villa Ridge join in most hearty congratula
tions, and are glad these newly married
people will reside in tho vicinity where
their places could not bo filled. It Is the
wish of all that the l'uturo may bo as de
lightful as was tho happy wedding occasion.
Paducah Enterprise of Sunday: "Be
tween tho hours of ten and eleven o'clock
last night a fire broke out in the rear of
the Daily News offlco, and, before anything
of consequence could be removed, tho build
ing was completely gutted. The fire de
partment was rendered almost useless by
the frequent bursting of the rotten hoso, and
for a time tho destruction of the entire
block was imminent, Iiecht BroB., adjoin
ing on tho enst, will loose heavily by water
and damage in tho removal of goods. The
News office was valued at about 8,000 or
!),000, and is insured for $5,500. The
building owned by S. F. Murrell, was
valued at f 1,000, and was insured for $3,
800. The building occupied by General
Bernhart was damaged slightly, as was also
tho one occupied by Iiecht Bros. The fire
raged fearfully for a while, and surround
ing buildings were endangered by sparks,
but fortune favored them and the fire at
this writing M :45) is under control. That
th-5 entire block was not away is a wonder.
Two boys John and Din Galvin were ar
rested during the fire by officers Frank
Grief and A.J. Leigh, while carrying away
hats they had stolen from Hecht Bro's
store. At twelvo o'clock the building oc
cupied by George Bernhart was discovered
to be on fire in the roof, but it was soon ex
tinguished. The fire was out at one a. m."
A negro driver, hauling wood for Mr.
C. W. Wheeler, was guilty of treatment
toward a span of mules yesterday evening,
which would have furnished ample ground
for arrest under tho ordinances against
cruelty to animals certainly caused per
son with an ordinary amount of humanity
to express themselves in terras, of denuncia
tions of the inhumanity .of tho negro in
question. Tho mules were hitched to a
wagon loaded with about two cords of four
foot wood ; the roads were muddy from the
heavy rain which was falling, and the
team had, doubtless with much labor,
reached the crossing over Eleventh street,
on the easterly side of Washington avenue.
Here tho mules suddenly halted, with the
front wheels against the plank crossing, and
they made several efforts to pull over the
crossing. They failed, partly because the
unskillful driver had turned too short and
one of tho front wheels touched the
wood. Tho driver now began to lash the
poor animals into a frenzy; he even armed
another negro with a hickory rod, and
while one used the rod on one
side tho other wielded tho whip on
the other for half an hour
or more almost incesontiy. The
wagon had sunk deep into the mud, a
crowd of men and children gathered around
in the rain'and people stood still for squares
around to seo and to denounce this exhibi
tion of human (?) cruelty toward dumb
beasts. But the actors in tho affair paid
no attention to these; they continued to
wield their whip and rod upon the back,
legs and flanks of the animals, blind with
rage and oblivious to even the writhings
of their victims. Foolish fellows I They
could have unloaded a portion of tho wood
and gone twiro or driven around another
square with less .exertion, in half the
time they wasted in their cruel treatment
of tho mules. Such exhibitions of unrea
son and inhumanity are intolerable out
rages, and tho perpetrators need to be
severely dealt with.
A case of an unusually devilish char
acter was brought before Justice J. U. Rob
inson yesterday. It was one of those cases
which cuuse brave men's bosoms to swell
with fierce indignation at tho cowardliness
of some miserable creatures who call them
selves human and make them wish for the
establishment of a whipping post that they
might wield the lash upon the back, and
gloat over the writ'iings of bucIi execrable
wretches as is the central figure in the cose
referred to, George G. Farris. This crea-
ture was fined ten dollars and costs for as
saulting his wife, and sunt to jail in default
of payment. Thu fellow acknowledged his
guilt with much indifference, just as though
his victim was not lying in her cot at homo
a mangled, bleeding mass of flesh and bone,
with her face blackened and disfigured enj
tirely beyond n cognition, and unablo to
move. It whs but a short time ngo when
Farris and his victim, Lou Smith, were
married in the court of Magistrate Comings.
Since then they liavo lived together in the
frame house on Poplar streot, opposlto

to the outer world, thoy lived poacofully

court, though it was known that both had,
previous to taking these vows, lead lives of
easy virtuo. But it seems that Farris was
or pretended to be jealous of his wife, and
for this reason abused her repeatedly. Mrs.
Farris is a woman of frail constitution
weighing not over eighty-five or ninety
pounds and of a peaceful disposition; she
denies solemnly that she has ever given her
husband any cause for jealosy, but has
lived the life of a true wife ever since her
maniago to Farris. Her story is believed
by those who know her. Monday afternoon
Farris, in another burst of jealous rage,
Btruck his wife in the face, causing it to
swell and turn black to an extent that ren
dered her an object repugnant to look upon.
The woman had borne much abuso without
complaint, but this blow stung her to the
quick, and she appeared in tho court of
Magistrate Comings to invoke the aid of
the law for her protection she wanted to
place her husband under a bond to keep
the peace. But even while in court she
changed her mind and concluded to return
home and try it again. She had not been
in the house long when Farm came in also
and suddenly turned upon her nain in a
most savage manner; he also attacked her
son, a youth of about eighteen years, who
came to her assistance, and then left the
house. Dr. Carter, who was called in, found
the woman lying upon her bed, faint with
the loss of blood and moaning with the pain
caused by her bruises. She hail a long
gosh on her shoulder; another, about five
inches long and half an inch deep on the
left arm, and still another across thu
right wrist, all of which were
bleeding profusely. "Both of her eyes wore
blackened and swollen and her face
generally was almost beaten to a
jelly and presented a horrible appearance.
Her son had a long gash over his back,
made with the blade of a knife, which cut
through his coat, vest and shirt, and pene
trated his Bkin to somo extent. The doc
tor raado the poor woman asconifortablo as
possiblo and left her. Yesterday sho was
even worse than tne day oeioro, lor ner
wounds had boi?un to fester, and Bhe was
Btiff in every limb and unable to move with
out great pain. Had the cowardly creature,
Farris, been guilty of bo treating a weak,
helpless woman in a community of rough
frontiersmen, it would have been tho sig
nal for convening Judge Lynch'B court and
making the guilty wretch dance in mid-air
at tho end of a rope; but here, whore men
aro civilized and law abiding, where there
is supposed to bo a fine sense of man's duty
toward man and a full appreciation of tho
blessedness and obligations of tho matri

This may be law, we have no doubt, but
that it is law, and that tho court could not
have done otherwise under the circun

mands that the inhuman scoundrel be given
