One U.T. Duncan, writing from Pres

their parents or relatives and wish to find
out if any one hero does. Any information
will.be thankfully received by - Mr. Dun

told him to sell them. But Mr. Moore
looked doubtful and was about to question
tho negro further when that individual sud

uonsKicraoio oi a wreck occurred on
the Cairo Short Line railroad ut Reeb's sta

forenoon, a mixed train of freight and coal
cars, most of them loaded, while running at
a good rate of speed jumped tho track nt
the place mentioned, and seventeen cars
were piled upon one another ami twisted
and wrecked. The debris of the cars am
tho freight and coal were scattered upon
ami ou both sides of tho track, but fortu-
nately no one wrs injured. The track was

Tho Johnson County Journal thinks
that "there is something dead in Denmark"
because Tub Bulletin ami Captain W. P.
Halliday and other Democrats have ex
pressed a preference for Captain John R.
Thomas as a candidate for congress over all
other Republican aspirants for that office.
It is probably mistaken when it says that
Captain Halliday is using his influence and
money to secure the nomination of Caption
Thomas. Ordinarily when prospective can
didates for an elective office commands the
good will, even the support to a certain ex
tent, of their political opponents, they are
considered tho worthier of the honors they
seek. In Captain Thomas' enso how-veer.
viewed front tho Journal's standpoint, this
rule is reversed. Tho reason is obvious.
llio Journal looks at Captain Thomas
through jealous eyes and is therefore not a
fair critic. If its own pet, Judge Damron,
wero the subject of favorable comment from
democratic sources would the Journal then
also take it for granted that there was
"something dead" iu the Judge's domain?
Metropolis Democrat: "It has been
reserved for one modest and unpretending
little Kentucky woman named Orphia
Baynes, the wife of Mr. James P. Hayiits,
living just across tho river from this place,
to disclose tho fraud and thereby quiet the
loars of these Btricken souls. Hearing tho
story of tho Ballad county egg from her
husband lust week, she at once took some
tallow and placed on a common egg tho
letter "H," a star and "May tliu2.rtli, 1880,"
together with some characters calculated to
frighten the superstitious. Shu then placed
the egg in strong vinegar for 8 hours, took
it out, scraped off tho tallow, and lo! the
legem! appeared in character as cloar as a
sunbcam-lho vinegar having eaten oil' that
part of the shell not protected by tho tal
low. She then placed tho egg in a nest
where it was found by Mr. Baynes, who
naturally became somewhat excited until
tho mystery w ss cleared up by his wife.
The egg is now on exhibition at this allico

- A negro named Marsh Brown, who
was some time ago convicted of the larceny
of a box ol wine from Monsrs. Robert
Symth A, llro., was arrested yesterday by
Officer Haz. Martin fur stealing a buns
violin from Mr. Ed. Dezonia. The theft
occurred some time ago. Mr. Dezonia bail
bought the violin from Brown and taken it
home. A day or two afterwards Brown
went to Mr. Dezonia's Iiuuhu during the
lattnr's absence and, telling Mrs. Dezonia
that her husband had sunt him (Brown)
for the violin, obtained it, took it to W.
T. Scott's saloon ami pawned it. Mr.
Dezonia, upon arriving homo and learning
the facts above stated, swore out a warrant
for Brown's arrest, but tho latter had left
town and was not captured until yester
day. Officer Martin learned that tho fel
low had gone up tho Illinois Central mad
to Mounds Junction, where he went mid
found his man hiding in a box car with
two or thrco others, black ami white.
Brown was examined by Justice Robinson
yesterday afternoon and held tobaillntho
sum of two hundred dollars, The violin
is worth about eighteen dollars, ltisnl

For tho consideration of tho accumu
lated water problem, and for tho adoption
or some good plan for the prevention of
tho accumulations ol water within our
levoes in tho future, there can be no timo
better than thu prcscuf when thero is noth
ing of greater importance agitating tho
public mind. To excite interest, to induce
a fair, unprejudiced, deliberate, intelligent
discussion of tho matter, was Tiik, Biillk

ter under consideratii n; mere assertions.
palpably fallacious, must bo avoided; do
nunciations, and epithets must not be
brought into thu argument. What is want
ed is u plain, calm statement of facts from
every old citizen who has made tho ac
cumulated water in this city in past years
a subject of observation ami thought. It
is necessary to know the cause and charac
ter of an evil before you can intelligently
apply means of euro or prevention, and to
this end experience ami observation are nec
essary. If such persons as "Fifty six," in
Grandmother Argus, will confine them
selves to a mere statement of what they
know of sipe and rain water in this city,
rather than occupy' newspaper space, and
weiuy the public, with personal dununciii'
tions, vulgar epithets, and mere, theoretical
and palpably unreliable aBsertious they
would contribute something toward the
end siiuht. "Fiftysix" objects
to the appointment of a com
mitteuof five citizens, in connection with
one of live couiicilinen, for the purpose ot
ascertaining the best plan of preventing ac
cumulations of water in the city, because,
he says, the council, "being elected by the
people, should need no committee to in
form them of what is best to be done, and
how to do it.'' And if they alone are Dot
capable to devise means for cuiing the
water evil he advises them to resign, lie
doesn't want tliel.l to listen to any
iiionneying in outsnie commutus, etc.;
he wants them to "u-a their own judge
ment III the expeliditllie of tlm people's
money." "Fifty .ix" is unreasonable and
inconsistent. He is unreasonable- becaui-e
he assume-, that the mere election of a
councilman constitutes him a sort of ani
mated, local encyclopedic, thoroughly
versed in all that concerns the city, from
its incorporation to the present time, and
particularly so with reference to the geolo
gical mysteries of the city's bottom. He
would have them depend exclusively upon
theirown judgement and meagre informa
tion, and prescribe a remedy for a serious,
chronic evil without having diagnosed the
case and inouired of the patient bow.
where, when, which, etc. Ho is inconsis
tent, because, while urging them not to
listen to any "outside monkeying," he falls
into a series of most silly verbal grimaces
himself, and demands that the council
heed him and expend the people's money in
accordance with his suggestions.
'I he recommendation of the street
to appoint a committee of five councilinen
and five citizens to investigate the water
problem and report to the couacil some
plan for preventing accumulations of water,
is wise, and should be carried out. In or
der to act intelligently and with any prob
ability of effectiveness, tho council nnibt
inform itself, and in order to do this noth
ing can be better than to appoint a cominit-
e whose duty it shall be to furnish such
information. The committee should trans
form itself into a sort of judicial body,
hunt up all the old "Fifty-sixers" in tho city
and make them tell, not what they think,
but what they know, about sine and ruin
water in Cairo. Such an investigation, by
ten intelligent citizens, must result in tho
accumulation of all necessary information
and iu the ultimate adoption of some prac
tical and undoubtedly effective plan of
prevention. In tho meantime, however, to
suggest and discuss plans is in order.
Discussion is one way and a very good way
to elicit information, ami an interchange of
thoughts may aid materially in arriving at
correct conclusions. But it should be borne
in mind that exhibitions of personal ill
will, or simple vulgar epithets in speaking"
of a plan which does not meet the writer's
approval, or mere assertions based upon a
theory that is palpably false-all these are
not condusivo to a proper and profitable
consideration of the matter at issue. "Fifty
six" dismisses puddling and seeks to crush
the advocates of that plan by simply ex
claiming "humbug." His plan.lo fill all
low places in the city with two feet of clay
dirt, bears much stronger evidences ot total
ineffectiveness than does puddling, but,
th iiigh, perhaps, justified in doing ho, wo
will not be so ungallant as to dismiss it
with the same powerful argument used by
him to annihilate puddling and puddlcrs.
We will say, now, that to fill tho low
places of the city with two feet of dirt,
without providing other means of preven
tion, would, not only entirely fail of accom
plishing even partially the purpose sought,
but, would increase the very evil which it
was intended to cure. The reasons why
may be given "in our next."
