A man slightly crazy and foyerish,
who had been taken to tho hospital Tuesday
morning, escaped some tir.io during the
afternoon and entered a houso on the comer
of Twentieth and Poplar streots. Picking
up an axo, he drove all the inmates out by
threatening to kill them, and then proceed
ed to demolish some of tho furniture. A
crowd soon gathered, but no ono ventured
to enter tho houso until Mr. Mike Fitz
gerald and Constablo Downcs camo along,
who went in and captured tho man and took
him to tho county jail for temporary safe
keeping. ' His ailment is pronouuood by
Dr. Carter to bo pluro-pncumonia.
At tho council meeting Tuesday night,
Dr. Clark appeared and presented a lcttor
which ho had ruceivod from St. Louis, and
which accused him of having organized a
society of body snatchors in this city. It
threatened him with death if bo did not
desist in his evil designs Against his fellow
men. Tho lcttor was written in a scrawly
hand and had evidently boon sent by soino
foolish wag to a friend in St. Louis, for
transmission to tho doctor from there.- Tho
doctor aeked tho council to do somothing
toward stopping theso persecutions of him.

certainly be hard up for somothing to amuse

therefore tho rain did not postpone its com

church were to give their concert Tuesday
evening. Therefore, also, the concert was
not so well attended as it would have boon
but for tho rain, and as it ought to have
been because of the excellence of the en
tcrtainmeut. Thoso who were thero, and
it was a very good sized audience neverthe
less, enjoyed one of tho grandest musical
treats of the season. The singing and in
strumental music was of tho finest, and it
could not have been otherwise, for the best
talent in tho city took part in the exercises,
It is to be hopod that tho ladies will soon
repeat tho concert, bo as to give thoso who
were prevented, by the weather from at
tending this time, an opportunity to hoar
During his trip to Chicago and Mil
waukee, which was ono of much pleasure
to him, Mr. John Kochlcr visited several
breweries in each of tho large cities and
made it a point to learn by actual sight
and taste, where tho best articlo, in the
wny of beer, could bo procured. Price was
not so much a matter of importance with
him as quality-he was willing to pay alittle
more per barrel, if thereby he could secure
a superior bcaverago. With this determi
nation ho started out and, of course, sue
cecded iu his purpose. He found that Mil
waukee manufacturers understood their
business better and used more care in pre
paring their beer and that they sustained
well their reputation of being the best
brewers in tho country, no found, also,
that a certain brand of beer, manufactured
by Mr. Peltzncr in that city, was far supe
rior to any that had been brought to this
city and he made a contract with Mr.
Peltzner for a continual supply of this
brand. Tho brand is known as "Gold
Medal," or "John Koehler's Favorite Peltz
ner," and it is now on tap at the Palace sa
loon on Eighth street.
Another meeting of the city council
was held at the chamber last night, and a
little routine business was transacted. Dr.
Clark was again in attendance and after
the meeting was over, begged permission to
address the council upon an important
ms tter. He proceeded to inform the gen
tlemen, at somo length, how he bad been
persecuted for these many months; how he
had beon threatened with death in every
conceivable form, from bleeding at tho
wrist to baking in an oven and
poisoning, until it has become a matter
of considerable concern to him. He con
cluded by asking the interference of the
council in his behalf; and, it is understood,
that a resolution was passed, instructing the
chief of police to take special charge of
the case of Dr. Clark, and to visit punish
ment upon his persecutors. Tho doctor
read letters to tho council which would,
according to the ruling of a St. Louis judge,
justify him in bunting down tho authors
and shooting them upon sight, without dan
ger to himself from tho courts of law; and
it is probable that tho death at tho doc
tor's hands of thoso who are now engaged
in the iu famous joke, which has long since
ost tho semblance of justifiablo humor
would not throw tho world into very deep
A select little audience gathered at
the opera houso last night to witness a trial
exhibition of the mechanical machinery of
tho stage and lighting apparatus. About a
mndred citizens were present, a majority
of them ladiesdressodin their best, and after
a walkthrough tho parquet and circles, and
an examination of tho brilliant decorations
and tho many appointments for both comfort
and elegance, all expressed themselves
well pleased, and took scats in tho parquet
circle to witness tho scenic exhibition.
They had not long to wait before the beau
tiful curtain arose smoothly and noiselessly
displaying a partition, which, being parted,
disclosed, because of its faithfulness to na
ture. Tho scene was greeted with ap
plause from tho audience, and was followed
in duo timo by others until an hour had
bren most pleasantly spent by tho ladies
and gentlemen present. Thero was no
litch of couscqueuco in tho whole exhibi
tion; everything worked as perfectly as
could bo expected, Tho electric lighting
apparatus, too, was entirely perfect after the
first or second trial every jet in the build
ing shooting forth ra brilliant flame the
instant the gas was turned on with full
force, and shedding a flood of light into
every nook of tho largo auditorium. There
is no doubt that all will work to a charm
at tho performance to-night.
The cliargo against tho follow Farris,
iu Justico Robinson's court, was merely
"disorderly conduct," preferred against him
by a neighbor of his, and none of the ter
rible details of tho prisoner's crimo wero
brought out, as ho plead guilty; therefore,
tho court's sentence was, as before stated,
in strict accordance with tho law and the
facts before the courjt. But it seems that
somo of the facts in the case ought to have
been brought out before sentence was pro
nounced. A man should not be permitted
to plead guilty to disorderly conduct, and
then fined a few dollars and sent to jail a
few days, without any investigation into
tho character of. his offense. No court can
deal properly with a caso without hoaring
tho evidenco, or punish crimo in accordance
with its enormity without having some idea
of what tho crime consists in. Waaro sat
isfied that Justico Robinson was actuated in
his disposal of tho case of the wretch,
Farris, by an honcBt purpose to vindicate

sought for information concerning the
fiendish ofTense to'which the prisoner plead
guilty with 6uch alacrity had he known
that the "disorderly conduct" with which
he fallow was charged, consisted in a
brutal attack with a deadly weapon upon
a weak, inoffensive woman, and that as a
result of that attack, tho woman was, at the
