No new cases of small-pox have been
reported to tho authorities within tho last

living on Walnut street were reported to
have the disease, one of them even pro
claimed that she had it and desired to go to

thatsho was mistaken and that neither had
anything like tho disease. Tho lew patients
still in the city hospital are doing well.
Grandmother Argus of last evening
says: "The nature of the soil beneath the

from puddling, can be beBt taken into con
sideration by visiting the place whore Mr.
Jacob Klein is sinking his artesian well.
No blue clay in sight yet, although tho well
is 200 feet down." Grandmother Argus is
mistaken. Tho well in question is about
125 feet deep, and at tho depth of thirty
feet a strata ol soil was Btruck.
The rains of Friday, Saturday and Sun
day have brought out gloomy messages
from some of tho corn counties in Illinois.
The farmers begin to fear that it will be
impossible to finish planting in time to se
cure a crop, and that tho growth of the
corn already above ground will bo serious
ly retarded. In contrast with this unfav
orable outlook as regards corn aro dis
patches from Minnesota and Kansas where
the prospects aro unusually bright for all
A certain corner house in the extreme
lower portion of the city is strongly sus
pected to be tho resort for a gang of sharp
ers who have been making Cairo their head
quarters for sometime. Tho result of tho
decision of tho Missouri supremo dourt, de
claring the St. Louis gambling law consti
tutional, has been to induce many of what
are commonly known as "slick" fellows to
scatter from that city and make their head
quarters in other cities. Cairo seems to
have gotten its share of them. But the olfl
cers are cognizant of them and will sudden
ly break in upon their plans when thry
least expect it.
A Maryland jury has just declared
that a man who is falsely charged with
voting for a dem'tcrst is entitled to money
damages. When tho vote was taken in tho
last legislature for controller of the state
two republican votes were cast for tho
democratic candidate. The fact caused a
great deal ol" excitement, aud efforts were
made to discover who the recreants were.
Iu tho midst of the excitement the Herald
aud Torch, a paper published at llagers-
town and owned by Qcn Negloy, the Uni
ted States sub treasurer at Baltimore, al
leged that ono of tho votes were cast by
Joseph t arrow, state senator. He brought
suit for slander. Negley claimed that the
statement was ouly a rumor and had not
injured Farrow's reputation, but tho jury
thought otherwise, and gave him $3,000
An arrest made by Officer Tyler Mon
day caused considerable unfavorable com
mvnt by all who witnessed it. Two Well-
dressed white women were slowly walking
arm in arm down Washington avenue. They
were walking along quietly, but a very
close observer could havo seen that one of
them was a littlo under the inlluence of
liquor, though not enough so to cause nny
outward demonstrations and no one noticed
them particularly. When they reached a
point some distance above tho Hibernian
engine house, the officer met them and,
having a sharp eyo for violators of the law,
ho detec'.ed the woman's condition and ar
rested her. This excited tho woman and a
most disgraceful scene was enacted all the
way down the avenue to the
Eleventh street jail. Tho woniau wus
repeatedly thrown down in her
struggles to releaso herself and frantic,
cries wero heard by and attracted people
fur squares. The whole proceeding was
infinitely more disgraceful than would
havo been the case had the woman been
let alone. Of two evils the lesser should
always be chosen and iu such cases a prop
er regard for public decency would have
dictated a different course from that pur
sued by the,o(liccr.
-The Sanitary Engineer censures the
Louisiana state board of health for its
course in regard to the quarantine service
at tho mouth ol the Mississippi. Tho ser
vice there is of just as much importance to
tho towns further up tho river as to New
Orleans and Louisiana, ami the sanitary
council of the Mississippi valley, composed
of delegates from all tho river states, has
asked that on inspector bo placed at New
Orleans by the national board ti keep out
siders informod as to tho manner in which
tho quarantine is conducted. It seems that
tho Louisiana board has accepted this con-
lition with very ill grace, and has refused
to communicate with the agent at New
Orleans, though the agent is a member of
the national board and a resident of New-
Orleans. It is charged that the nature of
the refusal was insulting and offensive. It
is natural that the state should resist any
effort of the national board to interfere with
or control its quarantine service, but this
seems to be a movement in which the
national board has little interest except for
tho welfare of tho valley states, which are,
of course, anxious to keep out yellow fever
and to know atithoratively that the inspec
tion is thorough.
A most outrageous assault was per
petrated late Monday night by a brace of
towboat roughs upon a stranger who was
quietly going down the Ohio levee. When
the stranger, whose name was Patrick Ma
har, was near the comer of Eighth street
and the levee, three men suddenly sprang
toward him. Ouo of them caught him
around the neck from behind, while anoth
er Btruck him in tho face, knocking him
down, and when he cried Wily, some
kicked him in tho face, exclaiming: "You
, cant I make you shut up?"
The objec was robbery, as tho fellows pro
ceeded to search tho prostrate man's pock
ets; but they had not proceeded very far
with this operstiou when O dicers John P.
Hogau and McTigue, having heard tho
man's cries, came running toward them.
Tho roug'js BAiight to escape, but the olli-
cers commanded them to bait which two
of them did. The third made a break for
up tho leveo closely followed by Officer
Rogan who fired several shots alter him.
Arrived at one of those small dens on Ohio
levee above Fourteenth street, the fellow
bursted in the door and
when the officer entered, tho fellow
was lying in bed by the side of a child, ap
parently soundly asleep. The officer recog
nized his man, however, and shook him,
but without waking him. The ollico drew
his hand across the man's brow ami
said : "My friend, you're sweating."
The fellow moved, rubbed his eyes and
said, "Oh, I always Bweat in my sleep."
But tho officer was not to be deceived. Ho
commanded the fellow to arise and coniu
along, which ho did. All threo of them
wero examined by Magistrate Comings yes
terday and hehl to bail in the sum of live
hundred dollars each. They aro three of
a gang of tow boat hands which has been
loafing around tho city for the past few days
all sturdy young fellows, with faces
plainly expressing their desperate chatac -tors.
The throe criminals wero properly
dealt with by tho court and will doubtless
receive their just deserts in the upper court.
Their names aro Peter Morgan, Charles
Nedlyand Richard Turbain.
Dr. Pierce's "Favorite Prescription" is

To puddle or not to puddle, that is tho
question. To puddle, to fill up, to pump,
perhaps to fail - these are tho subjects
which just now do agitato the public mind.
To prevent the accumulation of rain water
iu the city is a consummation devoutely to
bo wished for; tho question, how to do it?
opens up a wide field for investigation and
discussion, and conjurs up many other
perplexing questions. All tho plans so
far suggested havo somo merit, give somo
promise of effectiveness; all also pre
sent some objectionable features which
destroy any hope that cither one plan alono
will at all giva tho relief sought fur.
Filling up alone, to a point any less than
the top of tho levees, precludes all possl
bility of surface drainage, and by raising
the present bottoms In the city to an equal
height -with tho Btreets, would cause tho
wator which now settles in those bottoms
to spread over the entire city, only to a less
, depth. Filling up alone does not provide
against rain, nothing but a good roof will
do (hut. And had the city's bottoms all
been filled to an equal height with the av
enues during tho last flood, tho sipo water
would havo been almost entirely excluded,
but the 10,181,10:1 barrels of rain water
which were in the city, as shown by tho
statement in Sunday's Bitllktin, obtained
from Sergeant W. II. Ray, would have
covered every foot of ground iu tho city to
a depth of jiiBt twenty-four and forty-three
ono-hundredths inches, which, as shown by
the same statement, was the amount of
rainfall during tho four months ending
March iUst when tho sewers were opened.
Filling up to anypoint less than high
sipo water mark, or to tho depth of only
two feet, ns is proposed by tho Grand
mother Argus correspondent, would not on
ly havo the effect of raising tho level of
the accumulated rain water, without afford
ing means of drainage, but would not pre
vent si peago to any degree whatever. The
new layer ol earth which it is proposed to
spread only in tho bottoms, would bo satur
ated with water as soon as tho rivers rose,
would then be perforated like a sieve with
crawfish holes, post holes' cellars
ami vaults, which would per
mit tho inflow of water from the
rivers with tho greatest freedom. Besides
this it would not extend to tho tops of the
ridges, some of which are higher than the
avenues, and where the water was seen to
boil up during the lato unpleasantness in
streams six or eight inches in diameter.
Filling up also meets with legal difficulties.
It is a question to bo settled in the courts
whether or not tho city authorities could
force property owners to fill their premises.
Some argue that water -covered lots are a
nuisance and the owners thereof may be
compelled to abate such nuisance by filling
up. But it is a question to be decided in
a couit of law whether the lot owner is to
blame for the shallowness of his lot, or
whether the city is to blame for the imper
fect drainage it is an open question wheth
er a lot owner can be compelled to abate a
nuisance which exists because ot the (it) 's
failure to provide perfect drainage, and
whether, it is the lot owners or the city's
duty to provide proper drainage.
As before stated, pumping alone has been
tried and has failed. It does not scorn rea
sonable at all that the largest pump in the
world would have been capable of kerping
the city dry during the late flood. And to
procure ns many pumps as would do so and
run them, would be such a drain
upon the city treasury every year as would
soon become un unbearable burden. Fur
thermore, by pumping the water out of the
city all the pressure counteracting that
brought to bear from the outside Would be
removed, and tho flow of water into the city
would be constantly increased; tho outside
pressure would force the water through the
many natural inlets more rapidly, increase
the dimensions of those inlets contstanUy,
and would ultimately render it necessary
to increase the number of pumps in order to
remove tho increased quantities of water.
In the absence or any positive knowledge
of the formation of Cairo's bottom, it is rfot
possible to say whether or not puddling,
if carried out as proposed, would be entire
ly effectual. But, as previously stated, if it
is true that the rivers communicate with the
basins inside of our levees only by means
of ridges of sand which are themselves sur
roun led by strains of clay earth, then pud
dling promises complete, permanent, eco
nomical relief. For just as closing all our
present sewers would prevent the Ohio riv
er water, when high, from coming into the
city, so would tho Mississippi river be ex
cluded by cutting off the sand ridges at a
point just outside tho levees.
Trouble that would bo met with, would bo
crawfish which would probably perfcate
the underground embankment of clay; but
this could be prevented by lining the outer
side of the ditch with plank previous to fill
ing it with clay. If puddling can be made
to do what it is HOW claimed it inn ,1.1 tli.,
there would be an end to all accumulated
water within tho city. It would prevent
sipeage, and also provide surface drainage
by enabling the rain wnjor to settle in the
sand ridges from which the river water
would be excluded.
But supposing that an examination of
the ground proved that puddling could not
be made effective, then it would seem that
a combination or filling, (lumping and pud
dling would certainly give tho desired re
sult. Fill the basins with good earth and
prevent sipeago there; cut off the high
sand ridges by puddling them just outside'
tho levees, and thus prevent sipeage
through them ; a-ul against tho accumula
tion of rain water provide pumps. This is
Tiik Bi'LI.ictin's suggestion, given Tor what
it is worth,
