The sunny side of the street was the
most popular side yesterday. The indica
tions of a change in the temperature here,
given in Sergeant W. H. Ray's report tho
day before, came true. Crowds of men
and boys, including tho boot blacks, stood
in rows, with their backs against the sun-
warmed nulaa of houses, their hands in
their pockets, watching the shadows grad
ually turn toward the east.
Street Superintendent Gorman had
teams and men at work yesterday, repair
ing Sixth street, between Ohio levee and
Commercial avenue. The street was very
much in need of repairs; it had been allowed
to remain unattended to too long; but tho
reason was that there was no gravel on
hand with which to repair it. And there is
no gravel now ; the holes and ruts are being
filled with broken rock from the "jail
quarry,", which will probably serve the
purpose better than gravel would.
The seizure of the papers, books, and
other property of the Pullman company by
the Montreal authorities is based on the
charge that the cars of that corporation
used in Canada have been repaired in Chi
cago, Detroit and other points of the Uni
ted States; that the material used was sub
ject to duty under the Dominion laws'
also that the cars have been furnished in
United States with articles dutiable in Can
ada; and, generally speaking, that the Do
minion has been improperly kept out of its
lawful custom dues to the extent of tens of
thousands of dollars.
An Indian outbreak may soon. be ex
pected in Indian territory, for the notorious
raider, Capt. Payne, aftor several unsuccess
ful attempts, has at last evaded the United
States troops and settled in the territory
with several hundred followers. By a
troaty existing between the United States
government and the Indians, none but
friendly Indians are to be allowed to cross
tho line, and the Indians will, no doubt,
seek to enforce their rights under this
treaty. If they do, who is to blame but
the irreprcssable pale-faces and the gov
ernment? Some one started the rumor late last
night that Mr. Thomas W. Halliday had
been accidentally killed at the Egyptian
mills.. It was a cruel joke. Tho news
traveled like wild-flro, everybody flew to
the telephone and the poor fellow at the
central office was deluged with requests for
connections from all parts of the city with
all parts of the city. It was about an hour
after the rumor began that its contradic
tion from Mr. Halliday himself quieted it
down somewhat. But it is probable that a
number of persons in the city even now
who do not know any better, therefore, this
Mr. Joseph E. Lemon, of Bond coun
ty, Illinois, has taken Dixon Springs for a
term of years and will go to work to
increaio and improve the accommodations
and beautify the place. He proposes
building largo cottages for tho use of fami
lies, and other rooms out of reach ot the
usual noiue and excitement for use of in
valids. Among the new improvements will
be a fence that will enclose a park large
enough to take in both the magnesia aud
iron springs, and a number of foot bridges
across chusnis that will admit of nioru ex
tensive strolls among the rocks and hills.
These changes will have a tendency to
make Dixon more popular than ever as a

A Cincinnati physician asserts that tho
germs of small-pox are frequently con
veyed in the refuse animal matter used in
the manufacture of bogus butter. The
Chicago Herald sees very little reason to
doubt this statement and says that germs
thus taken into tho system through the di
gebtive apparatus would dovclop small-pox
in a person who had never been outwardly
exposed to tho disease This is a tough
theory, but if it will contribute to the good
work of driving bogus butter out of the
market wo bopo it may find credence on

.Nearly all he pave streets W ct-
need to bo scraped. Through . constant
use they have become covered with dirt,
carried upon thorn from the unimproved
streets by wagon wheels and horse-hoofs,
until it has reached tho depth of Beveral
inches in some places. ' The mild winter
with which we are threatened will keep
these paved streets, as all the rest of the
streets, constantly muddy and sloppy un
less this thick layer of dirt is removed. To
scrape all the paved streets twice during
the winter months would keep them com
paratively dry, if their drainage is good,
and it seems to be so. The earth thus ac
cumulated could bo used in repairing the
unpaved streets. This would not cost a
great deal and add much to the comfort of
teams and drivers, and to the appearance of
the city. .
The increase of the revenue derived by
the government from beer marks the vast
consumption of that, popular ;beversge in
the United States. In the year 1883 the
revenue derived from the tax on beer
amcuted to $1,500,000 only, while in the
year 1881 it will reach fourtoen millions
dollars, an amount in excess of what wss
required to pay the entire expenses of the
government fifty years ago. For the four
years of tho admiration of John Quincy
Adams the total expenditures of the govern
ment aggregated something over $52,000,
000, and wero considered enormously "ex
travagant." What would the men of that
day have thought had they been told that
the time would come wlen an internal tax
on beer would exceed the then "extra
vagant" annual expenditures of the govern-'
The Cairo oil company will not be
quite ready to begin operations on tho first
of the coming month. The reason is that
the company has been compelled to wait
for some of the machinery which it is hav
ing built new. The holidays will also in
terfere with the progress of the work, as
the workmen and mechanics will desire to
observe them. Yet the company has al
ready received and stored away many tons
of cotton seed and is receiving fresh instal
ments every week, so that when the time
comes to begin, there may bo no delay on
account of a lack of material to work upon.
Mr. Davis, the company's manager here,
states that cotton seed is unusually scarce
this year and that many of tho oil mills of
tho south are short, and are tkreatencd frith
entire lack of material to work upon. Ho
has no doubt but that his company will be
able to dispose of all the oil and meal it
can manufacture, though its large mills
be in operation day and night to the ex
tent of their capacity.
The year now drawing to its end has
been a very severo one upon the gardeners
in and just outside of this city. They
had spent as much labor as usual upon
their large well-kept fields and everything
ca'me up nicely, and they worked diligently
to keep down tho weeds, only to see in the
end that all the efforts had been in vain;
that tho green stalkes and vinos peeped over
tho ground, waved in the - breeees
a little while, and then withered
in the scorching sun without ful
fill ng their lawful destiny. The gardeners,
though sorely disappointed at the discour
aging results of their labor, took heart and
placed the seed for a late crop of potatoes,
corn, peas, beans, etc,; then worked.perhaps
with less good will, but tho same energy as
before, hoping to regain in the second ef
fort at least a portion of what they had lost
before; but they wero again doomed to dis
appointment. Tho same cause which frus
trated their work before was active a sec
ond time and again they saw their fields
first thinly clothed in green and then grad
ually chango to a dingy brown, indicative
of death. One gardener who had planted
several hundred bushels of late potatoes will
not realize a crop equal to what he put into
tho ground. Corn is the same way, and as
for lato vegetables, there aro none, and the
city markets aro almost entirely bare. It
seems almost as though we were on the
road to universal disorder; but will charge
this state of affairs to the comets and to
tho blundering weather prophets, of which
this sphere has had moro than its share
within the last year.
The Vienna theatre horror has had the
effect of calling tho attention of tho author
ities und societies in nearly all largo cities
to tho manner in which the theatres in
their respectiye cities have been built, the
point of special attention being tho facili
ties for exit. In St. Louis, Chicago, Louis
ville, Now Orleans and New York the
question has been agitatod and investiga
tions ordered, and in Montreal, Canada, an
official inspection has been ordered of all

emptied of fifteen hundred people in less
than ten minutes in case of necessity. In
this connection it is proper to say that the
folding doors, on the stair leading from the
dress circle to the parquette circle on the
Railroad street side, to which objection
has been made, is no ebstruction at all.
The doors are there in order to prevent per
sons from paying for a seat in the dress
circle at the front door and then coming
down the back way into the parquette cir
cle. Thoy meet in the middle and are not
bolted, boing held together only by a small
padlock clasping a little staple in one of
the doors. A slight shove with ono hand
would bunt the doors open, and to a crowd
bent upon exit, would be no more ot an
obstruction than a tooth pick laid across
the stair. Besides, a doorkeeper is con
stantly on hand at the outer Railrood street
entrance, who has the key to the padlock
and throws open the folding doors as soon
as the performance draws to a close; and it
is safe to presume that he would do the
same with equal promptness, if the au
dience should wish to leave tho building
for a more serious reason than tho closing
of the performance. .
A case of human suffering and human
heartlessness was brought to public notice
yesterday ovening. It was a white woman,
about thirty years of age, illy clad and
emaciated, lying upon tho sidewalk near
the corner of Twenty-first street and Wash
ington avonuo, crying and shouting by
turns, telling men as they passed her by
that she was injured and neodod medical
attontion. But strong men, reputed to be
of a sympathetic naturo, camo and went
without hoeding the poor creaturo's pltious
appeals; nor yet hor loud shrieks, which
must havo grated harshly upon tho ears of
sensitive persons for squares around. The
woman lay upon the sidewalk for hours--,
until darkness began to fall aud, '.iu, at
leattt, came partial rolief. Constuulo Guy
Morib an! Mr, Cht.nbiy found tho woman
'and conveyed her to tho county jail and
laid her upon a mattress, and
Coroner Fitzgerald gave hor a cup
of coffoo and something to eat.
It was found that one of the poor creature's
lower limbs was swollen from tho ankle- up
to tho knee to double its natural slzo, and
Bhe averred that It caused her excruciat
ing pain. Shoii had for somo time past
been employed by one Jack Fry, in the
central portion of the county ; but becom
