Union county circuit court is now in ses
sion, and, perhaps, wilt cootiouo for anoth
or week. As w have not bean to court,
wo are unadvised aa to what cases r on
docket. The murdor case against Wm.
Walker and Blmou Aden was condoned by
the peoplo till tho next term of court. Fire
others, who wore under the same Indict
ment, were tried last fall and the Jury fall
ed to convict. Wby tho .taw attorney
contlnuod tbe case In the two above named,
we are not adylaecU It U Dorogpno con-
elusion that when Walker and Aden Ret
their trial they, too, will come clear. With
the evidence before tbe itate'i attorney in
tbe CMe of those who hare hud their, trial,
we fail toaee any good reason for condoli
ng the case with regard to tho other two.
Better to have entered a nolly antl stop tbe
expense, Tnnt tne "unKnown rramp"was
murdered, no sensible man can doubt, but
who the murderers were, must remain in
the dark, . and, pefhap, may never be
known definitely. But taking circumstan
tial evidence, it is quite easy for any rea
sonable person to comu to a conclusion as
to who murdered the tramp. Taking
things as they exist in our courts, we see
no reason why the law abiding citizens of
Union and other counties should not form
vigilance committees that would meet out
justice to every murderer that comes along.
Give a murderer a few dollars to divide
with the state attorney in some counties,
and if he has killed his wifu or a tramp, it
makes no difference which, the statu's at
torney will so prosecute the cast aa to give
and grant him very light bail, and manago
for him to" come clear in tha end. We
know this is plain talk, but we
know what we are talking about; for we
have seen it tried, and we know an cx-states
attorney that could not get 30 votes in his
precinct for 'squire. "If Guitcau bad had
a preliminary examination in Cairo, would
ho not have been out on two hundred dol
lars bail!" We answer, yes, and why do we
so answer! Well for the reason that, we
judge of things by things that have passed
We read all of a trial of murder that took
place some years ago, In which the mur
derer came clear on the grounds of insanity
The defendant provod that he was insane.
Ono woman testified that, she saw him, the
defendant, standing still, looking straight
down his nose, and therefore she believed
he was insane. A man had met Uim, and
noticed that his face was very red and his
eyes didn't look just right, for which rea
son be concluded he was insano. Guitcau,
go to jail in Cairo or Jonesboro, not much
Considered in the light of a symphony it
would be too utterly utter, and soulless."
George Poor, who during tbe flood at Cairo,
was in Cairo, doing all he could in the right
against the floods, is now at home, in Don
gola, he speaks coinmeodably of tho pluck,
energy and perseverance of Cairo's citizens
We are nearing the ides of March, and but
little done toward farming. Flood on top
of flood keops the soil in a condition that
plowing cannot be done. We still are hope
ful that, after awbilo, we shall meet with a
cbanse in the season that will right all
seeming wrongs, and the farmer go forth to
scatter tho precious seeds for tho crop in
prospective. We make it our chief aim in
life, to hunt for the bright side of every
thing, but if thoro is any bright side to so
"hawful" much rain we fail to find it.
However, the chinch bug may be destroyed
by the floods. Let us hopo, so, take courage
and drive ahead. No small-pox cases
among us. "Old Trim."
the Spanish Army
King Alfonno XII, Hko Von Moltkc,
hn.s some ideas about military matters,
antl the Spanish establishment is to bo
reconstructed. , Eight years' service in
tho army id now required, four in active
tlerntion, and aa many more in reserve
force. It is proposed to incrcaso the
time to twelve years as regards the in
fantry, two years and a quarter to be
assigned to the ranks, three nnd tbreo
quarters to tbe "active reserve," and six
to the "second reserve." In the other
arms tho terms of service are to be three
and four years, respectively. At tho
same time the peace estal)llnhment is to
be raised to nearly 100,000 men, while
the reserve force, to the number of 28,
000, will be given active training every
year in April, May and June. There
will be in tho infantry branch 140 active
and as many reserve battalions, and it
is estimated that after all these reforms
have been introduced, Spain will at any.
time be able to put in the flcld.jn the
space of a fortnight, 140,000 men. Suit
able measures Involving these ideiui
bars been laid bofore the Cortes by the

If in tho winter season, and the cowt
are kept stabled, the surroundings should
be carefully looked after. There should
be rfmple ventilation, but great car
should be used that there are no draft
of air. The barn should never be olosed
up tight over night, nor the doors thrown,
wide open during the day, while the
stock is in. It is a noticeable fact, that
in large city livery and horse barns,
more horses are lost by this treatment .
than by almost all other causes com
bined. Whilo a uple ventilation is necessary,
we should not only avoid a draught, but
wo should not have too many cracks for
tho winds to whistle through.
The surroundings as to drainage are
essential for good Health; and itls par
ticularly important that there be no
smoking manure heap near the barn
doors or windows, where a gentlo breeze
will waft foul odors in upon the stock,
in place of tho pure bracing air. '
