The republicans of Mound City met
there Tuesday for tho purpose of organizing
for the coming campaign. Somo impor
taut action was to be taken with reference
to candidates, principally senatorial candi
dates. But there, as here, a few who hayo
domineered over tho many for years, sought
to dictate the action of tho meeting; and
also there, as here anil elsewhere, tho masses
of the party made a strong effort to throw
off the yoke of tho bosses. Tho result was
that tho meeting broke up in a disgracefu
Abvration oi mind was tho cause of
the. suicide of Mrs. Katie Donovan, of
Columbus, near Anna on Tuesday. Shu
had not left home against the 'wishes of
her parents. Sho was on a visit to friends
at Odin, 111., and syptoms of mental dis
order manifested themselves there. Her
father was notified of the fact and he came
after her. On the train ho watched her
closely, but her action was so sudden that
he was unable to prevent the catastrophe
which ended in her death. Mr. Bon Eckols
was in tho same car at the time, bitting
near tho door, and ho heard tho young
lady's father calling to htm to stop her, but
he did not comprehend the man's meaning
until after tho girl had passed him and out
of the dour.
A colored child living on Fifteenth
street, back of Walnut, was bitten by a dog
yesterday, and fears were entertained that
it would bleed to death, as an artery had
been severed in tho foro part of the arm. A
physician was hastily summoned after vain
efforts to stop tho flow of blood had been
made, and at last accounts tho child was
getting along atl right. The dog was uot
provoked to the attack, and should be ex
The body of tho missing girl, Zoo Wat
kins, was found floating in tho river at
Carondolet Tuesday morning, Evidence
showed that the body could not have been
in tho water more than eight or nine d:iy
leaving two or three days still unaccounted
for. The Coroner's inquest was conducted
without a jury, on tho tbuory of a clear
case of suicide, and verdict so rendered,
although all tho evidence pointed to foul
play. Dr. Ludwig made tho post mortem
examination, and afterward stated the
belief that the girl had been choked to
death and tho body thrown into the river
This is undoubtedly tho case, and the Oml-
ing of her body will by no means end the
Monday afternoon as tho Illinois Cen
tral train was passing out of Ilarrisburg,
ouu of a drunken trio who had been dis
orderly on tho train and ordered to bo
quiet by Conductor Sullivan, picked up a
stick of wood and threw it at the platform
of one of tho cars, which was crowded with
people. Tho wood came in dangerous
proximity to the persons of several of tho
men on the platform and might have done
some of them serious injury. Such an of
fense is severely punishable and vtry prop
erly so, for it has been n't. infrequent that
missels thrown at a train in motion came
in contact with passengers with serious
effect. Railroad companies owe it to them
selves aud to the public to have persons
guilty of such acts of violence adequently
George 0. Farris and Wm. McDonald
were arrested by Officers Martin and Ma
hanny yesterday, for burglarizing a small
frame buildiug situated near the comer of
Thirteenth street and Commercial avenue,
and taking therefrom a oickle-plated car
penter's brace, valued at two aud a half
dollars, belonging to Mr. G. C. Jamison
and selling it to Mr. Peter Gadboiso for
one dollar. Tho house belongs to Farris'
wife; Mr. Jamison is at work in it making
extensivo repairs; when be left for dinner
on Tuesday, Mr. Jamison left his tools in
the house and locked all the doors; when
he returned the braco was gone. During
the forenoon I'arris met McDonald, who
was drunk, and said to him that he (Farris)
thought he could raise some money for
whisky by selling somo of his tools, and
asked McDonald to go with him
to get tho tool. Both went; Farris
gained entrance to tne building,
got the brace and told McDonald to sell it,
which the latter did for one dollar to Mr.
Gadboiso who paid fortr-fivc cents cash
own and owes, or rather saved, the bal
ance. 1 hese are tlie tacts as developed in
tho trial, and as it was clearly shown that
McDonald did nothing wrong he was dis
charged. Farris was held to bail in the
sum of two hundred dollars, in default of
which he went to the county jail. Farris
is also known to have Btolen some lumber
from the city lumber yard, to be used in
the repairs upon tho house mentioned, but
his wife refused to allow it to bo used.
Five pieces of the city's lumber, each six
teen feet long by two inches thick, were
still lying in front of tho house yesterday,
but will bo taken possosnLon of by the au
thorities to-day. Farris has figured often
and odiously in our police courts; he is an
undesirable citizen; ho should, and prob
ably will, bo "scut up" for several years.
-"Pot-Bouille," by Emilo Zola, the
greatest of the French naturalistic writers,
just published by T. B. Peterson & Bros.,
1'hiladelphia, is a tuoBt extraordinary,
thoroughly original, and wonderfully in
tense novel, full of colossal power and
teeming with surprising incidents ot the
most thrilling and dramatic character. It
is a study of tho home lifo of the middle
classes of Fans, and exhibits the same
terrible and unlliuching analysis of vice as
marked its predecessors in "IAssommoir"
and "Nana." The various families re
siding in a stylish manner aro the person
ages of the romance, luey are considered
irreproachable by tho world, but Zola (tears
off their crust of respectability and shows
them as they arc, exposing their schemes,
their vices, and the complications in which
their wrong-doing involves) them. Excite
ment follows excitement in the pages of
"Pot-Bouille," tho rominco being au un
broken chain of fascination lrom heirinuinu
to end. Tho characters are drawn with a
master hand, Zola having been particularly
successful in sketching the Josscr&nds, the
Vabres, tho Fictions, aud that miserly
drunkard, Bauhelard. Ho portrait of
Saturniu, tho idiot, is also lifo itself. John
Stirling has translated "Pot Bouillt" in his
usual able and faithful manner. Of course,
everybody will want to read Zola's latest
novel, and that it will create a marked
sensation is certain. It is publishod in a
large square duodecimo volume, paper
cover, uniform with "Nana" and "L'Assom-
moir," pneo seventy-live cents, and will bo
found for sab) by all booksellers, and at' all
news stands, and on all railroad trains, or
copies of it will bo sent to any ono, to any
place, at once, post-paid, on remitting tho
price m a inner to tne publishers, T. B

TEMPLAR WORK AT CAIRO.
The following interesting account of tho
Knights Templar's reunion, held at The
Halliday in this city somo time ago ap
peared in tho "Voice of Masonry and
Family Magazine" of a recent date:
"At the junction of the Ohio and Mis
sissippi rivers is located uairo, a. city 01

Fraternity. The lodges and other bodies
embrace its best citizens. In company
with Grand Commander Munn, Past Grand
Commander John C. Smith, Eminent Sirs
Cassette, Whitbeck, Barnard, Grand Re
corder, and Sirs Tiffany and Wilcox, we
enjoyed, on the evening of the flth of May
last, the immeasurable hospitalities of Em
inent Sir Dunning, Grand Senior Warden,
and his notable command. This is also the
homo of Past Grand Commander Barclay.
Aside from visitors from the North was
Eminent Sir E. C. Pace, commander of
Cyrene, stationed in Centralis, together
with a considerable delegation from Pa
ducah, Kenutcky, and Jackson, Tennessee;
also from several contiguous commanderies
of Illinois. All were much interested in a

At the conclusion of exercises in tho
Asylum, the party instinctively gravitatod
to 'Tho Halliday,' whero our entertainers
had been busy many a weary Jay in gath

Commander, and that of tho Chicago dele

and beautiful affair, frequently callitig out
exclamations of solid approval, neverthe
less tho fragments would bo of little conso
quenco to a hungry cockroach. Much at
tention was given to supplies for the writer.
Pig9 feet done up in exuberant stylo and in
great abundance: onions in variety, fresh
and strong, wero provided by Sir Barclay
as a personal contribution. If we wero not
aware of his reckless disregard fur expense,
our surprise over this characteristic benevo
lence would have been limitless. Then
again, he is a publio benefactor. He has

SECOND We have ample capital and are prepared to buy cash down.
THIRD We are at all times represented in eastern markets by a resident buyer,

Now.it is by taking advantage of these opportunities that wo do from time to time,

its use is free of charge to non-residents.
He also vouches for its efficacy, and will be

"The speeches ot the evening were nu
merous and entertaining. The speech of
welcome by Commander Dunning was
eminently characteristic of the man. He
is a genuine Mason, aud retkets the cour
teous, fraternal hospitality of his command
try. It has been our pleasure to meet
Masonic bodies upon similar occasions, but
not in any instance were we more gratified
with efforts in making pleasant the hours
of social intercourse. Sir Knight Dun
ning is a physician of extended practice,
and a citizen of value and prominence.
"The remarks of Sir Knight Barclay, de
livered during the pending of the banquet,
were practical, and a marked feature of the
entertainment. Thus: 'Sir Knights, be
zealous, we have plenty.' 'Grand Com
mander, will you have another chicken or
two?' 'Sir Tiffany, free.e onto that ham.'
,Here, waiter, another baked catt'iHjj for Sir
Knight Paco.' 'Eminent Sir Whitbeck,
you appear to be fond of roast pig; if the
ono before you gives out, order another.'
Aside to Past Grand Commander Smith:
That goose may be a trifle old; it was in
tended for Sir Knight Cregier. Here's a
hatchet.' Thus he went from gtiest to
guest. It was too much, however, and lie
finally settled beside u Romau punch, pale
