-Ainoiijj the many pleasing features of
the Library entertainment, the artistic and
elegant presentation of the statuary de
serves especial mention. It was entirely
under the management of Mrs. C. W. Dun

taste in that direction, and excelled herself
last Tuesday evening. Each group was
exquisite in conception and rendition, and
oiid and enthusiastic have been the praises
icstowcd upon the beautiful tableaux.
The total receipts ol the Library enter

price, of the tickets which were placed at
popular figures. Through the generous
co-operation ol the friends of tli Library

Nine United Stales convicts from Tex
as were at mo Illinois Ccntial passenger
depot Tuesday night, enroute for tho Ches
ter, Ills., penitentiary. They were in charge
of Deputy Marshals McFarland, Ooldwater
and Wolfe, of the western district of Texas.
Six ot them were sent up for stage robbing;
two, for theft from the United States mail,
and ime for appropriating government prop
erty. There were two Mexicans among
them who were especially vicious looking,
though all betrayed their characters in the
-Sparta Plaindealei : "Army worm sto
ries aie now in order. One gentleman tells
us that he has a well in the center of his
field, and the worms on theirinarch dropped
into the well in such number as to cover up
tin: water completely ho that it can not he
seen. Several cases have occurred of hens
eating worms, and us a result their eggs
were green in color all through. To persons
who h ive not been where the army worm
is on the rampage these stories look big, but
they i an lie veiilied."
- The Cairo Broom Brigade acquitted its
self remarkably well at the entertainment
Tuesday- night. Several new movements
which were introduced and which thu en
tire brigade performed with the greatest
apparent ease, were a very agreeable sur
prise to the audience and were loudly ap
plauded. The organization should not he
allowed to disband after having attained
such perfection in its exercises. It should
be maintained and brought into frequent
use at public and private entertainments, to
which it would be a great attraction at all
- Mr. L. A. Watkiiis, father of Miss Zoo
Watkins who mysteriously disappeared
and was found drowned in the Mississippi
river at St. Louis sometime ago, in his card
of thanks to the public published in the St.
Louis press, says: "The manner of my
daughter's death still remains a mystery,
hut thy family cling to tho belief that the
was tho victim of a tuurdorer or murderers
most foul. I havo not yet fully deterinin
ed to do anything further at present, and
may leave the guilty one if such thero be
- iu tho firm belief that (Jod iu big wisdom
will bring upon them such judgment as
He thinks they deserve."
Although tin) city council has engaged
the services of a scavenger who makes the
rounds of tho city every day and makes his
prcsenco known by ringing a bell, some citi
zens too many of them throw whatever
slops or kitchen offal they may have into
tho street right in front of their premises.
If placed in buckets by tho gate the scaven
ger will remove it, and tho streets nnd
preuiisi.H will bo kept clean. Tho ordi
minces prohibit the throwing Of any vegcta
hie or animal substances into tho streets,
and there is no reason why it should be
done so long as there is a man paid by the
city to icmovo such substances from citi
zens' premises. ,
A drunken white man was lying prone
on tho sidewalk nonr thu Vicksburg house
on Commercial aveuuo last oveuing, when
two river men camo along, one ot whom
snggestud that they throw thu drunken man
into a pond of water near by. No sooner
said than done. The helpless wretch was
picked up and pitched head foremost into
tho pond which was but about a foot deep.
Induing soouoof them shoved another who
was sitting on the railing, olf into the pond.
This latter individual turned upon the man
who had accidentally shoved him and let
forth a stream of ahsccuo abuse, which
brought on a tight and a most ludicrous
scramble in the pond oWirty water. After
some gore had been mixed with thu thor
oughly stirred up bog, the trio came forth
besmeared with tilth and generally very
much worse for tho ducking.
A collision between tio delivery wag
ons of MoBsrs. Smith Bros., and Pettis &
Meredith, on Fourteenth street, back of
Washington avenue, yesterday nioriiiii,
caused tho horse attached to the former to
run away. The horse ran toward Washington
avenue, and iu turaing quickly down this
street toward the Btorc, the occupant of the
wagon, a little whito boy about twelve years
of age, named Johnnie Jone wss thrown
from the wagon and got his arm brokeu,
and sustained other minor bodily injuries.
The horse continued on his way until he
reached thu store at tho corner of thirteenth
street, where he ran the wagon against an
other stan. ling by the pump, causing the
horses attached thereto also to run away
and badly wrecking the delivery wagon.
Dr. G. G. Parker wss called to give the
injured boy surgical and medical attention.
The first of a series of temperance
revivals was held at Reform hall last night.
Mr. Hoofstitler, tho well known temperance
orator of the central portion of tho state,
arrived according to arrangement and oc
cupied tho platform at the hall. The hall
was thronged with a good audience, com
prising some of our best people, both young
and old, nearly all of whom were enthusias
tic temperance workers. Tho exercises
were opened with prayer and song, and
then the spenker of tho evening was intro
lueed by President (I. M. Alden. The
speech ib said by ono who heard it to havo
been one of much merit, a powerful argu
ment in favor of total abstinence, and free
from uncalled for personalities, which is
often tho chief stock in trade of tho
temperance orators. The speaker
was often and vehemently applauded. A
number of signatures to tho pledge were
Metropolis Democrat: ''The building
season has opened brightly. A spirit of en
terprise has taken full possession of our cit
izens and we note in many parts of the city
new brick residences arc being put up to
take the places of unpretending little
frames. Judge Mulkey, of Cairo, as we
havo before stated, has determined to make
Metropolis his future home and has pur
chased an elegant site and will soon let the
contract for a tine residence. Ami we hear
that Judge (Ireen, for a long time an honor
ed citizen of our city, contemplates return
ing. The cause of tin; enterprise is obvi
ous. The country around our city is far
ahead of us, and it is but natural that we
should try to catch up." Tho Democrat
seems to find much consolation iu imagin
ing that Metropolis is about to depopulate
Cairo. The references to these distinguished
citizens of Cairo arc certainly prompted by
tho Democrat's wish, for that they have no
desire of removiiu; Ironi Cairo admits of no
A change has been made in the placo
of holding the graduating exercises of tho
"class of '8" which will ho very agreeabl
to ihe public. It has been decided by tho
directors to have thu exercises at theiOpera
House, which has been kindly placed at
their disposal and which will more readily
accommodate the great throng of people
which will be eagre to witness tho inter
esting ceremony. That tho exercises will
be interesting may safely bo assumed, for
the young ladies composing tho class have
frequently given evidence of their superior
scholarship and literary attainments. Tho
class is composed entirely of young ladies
not a single male in it which is certain
ly not a good recommendation for the
school boys. In former years there were at
least one or two or more boys in the gradu
ating class; but it seems that they have
gradually dropped out until now tho cirli
are left to enjoy alono the graduation hon
ors. Tui year'i class is composed of
Misses Maud HittcDbouse, Edith Martin,
Eva Hhcppard, Mattiu Martin, Jonnio
Wright, Hadiu Wheeler, Emma Webster
and Amanda Field.
At a meeting of the academy of science,
at St. Louis Monday Dr. Eugelmau read a
paper on thu weather, in which ho stated
that meterologists, in conjunction with other
human beings, agreed that the mouth of
May, 1883, was about tho coldest May we
have had within tho memory ofinan. While
the mean temperature of the atmosphere du
ring thu time in question was considerably
colder than tho normal temperature, nnd
while it was as high as 71.3 degrees two
years ago, and only 71.4 degrees last year, it
was only 00.7 degrees this year. Only
twice had tho doctor found it as low. In
18IIS and in 1857, forty nnd fifteen years
ago, thu temperature of the atmosphere was
as low as 110. 5 deprees. It is interesting to
observe that in both years a hot summer
followed a cold May, yet, of course, it can not
bo predicted from tho precedent that
the same result will follow the cold May of
183. Tho summers of 1838 and 18(17 wero
very unhealthy seasons during which epi
demics prevailed. To cereals of all kinds
the weather has been disastrous, inasmuch
as wheat and other small grain has shown a
disposition to grow rank, and the prospects
are that much will bo lost by farmers du
ring the harvesting season should the
weather continue wet. It was thought that
the year would be a remarkably favorable
one for farmers, yet they are having their
dilliculties to contend with, which threaten
to prove highly disastrous. A cold, wet
summer will prevent them from plowing
thi ir corii and give the weds an opportu
nity to choke out their prospects. Last
ytar tbecoin crop was almost a total failure
in many localities on an account of the
heavy tains that prevailed late during the
summer season, and this year the prospects
of favorable influences lire hy no means cer
tain. News received here yestcrlay staled
that the republicans of Pope county had
met Tuesday in mass convention to select
delegates to tho congressional convention
to be held in this city on the Uith proximo,
and that they had selected the delegates
and instructed them for Captain John H.
Thomas. Pope county has sixteen votes in
the convention, which, added to Jackson's
twenty two, Massac's fifteen, Randolph's
twenty-seven and Union's eleven, will give
Captain Thomas ninety-one Votes on the
first ballot, or live nioro than will be nec
essary to nominate. Add to these Johnson's
lilteeii which are instructed to give biin
second choice, and he will have one hun
dred and six votes. There are now but two
counties to he heard from, Pulaski mid
Alexander, the former having 'twelve, the
latter sixteen votes; a total of twenty-eight,
nnd these are all sure for Thomas. In
view of these facts Captain Thomas nmy
safely expect that the first ballot in the
convention will give him at least one hun
dred and nineteen votes, and insure his
nomination. And also in view of these
facts it seems ludicrous that Mr. Thomas'
rival candidates, especially Judge Damron,
of Johnson, and Hon. Georgo W.Smith, of
Jackson, are making the strongest possible
ellortsto capture the two last named coun
ties. The latter, accompanied by his forces,
was in this city Tuesday and w as in secret
conclave with some of the leading repub ¬
licans here; the former, also accompanied
by soino of his henchmen, was here
yesterday and was likewise in secret con
clave with the same leading republicans.
Tho object evidently is to concoct some
plan for capturing the mass meeting to he
held in these two counties soon, nnd to do
so by any means wh ich promise success. 1 1
is probable that the mass meetings in these
two counties will ho more interesting than
those of any of tho other counties in the
district, nnd infinitely mote so than the
nominating convention itself will he.
The San Antonio Express of thu 4th
has the following of interest here: "Last
evening the track of thu Texas and St. Louis
Narrow guago was expected to reach Mc
Gregor, a station on the lino of tho G., C.
and Santa Fe, ono and ono lourths miles
north oi Banks, thereby affording, upon tho
completion of the Texas and St. Louis road
through Arkansas to Cairo, Illinois, an un
broken connection for tho Santa Fo railway
with St. Louis and other Northeastern cities.
Thu Texas Western Narrow-gauge is now
in close proximity to Sealy, on tho Gulf,
Colorado and Sunta Fe, which will open
another avenue to Houston from tho north
ern part of tho state. The latest railway
rumor heio is that the Gulf, Colorado and
Santa Fe, since their failure to purcluis the
Chicago, Texas and Mexican railway, will
survey a roiito from Ft. Worth to McKinney
connecting these points at an uarly day hy
rail. Since all the lines in Texas under
tho control of tho Gould syndicate have de
clined to exchango business with tho Gulf,
Colorado anil Santa Fe, it ia forcing tho
latter road to get a northern connection,
and regardless of the fact if such connection
is detrimental to Galveston. This was
clearly shown about a week ago wdien the
Santa Fo company proposed to the Chicago
and Alton company that if tho latter com.
pany would build their lines from Kansas
City to tho north lino of Indian territory
tho 8ata Fo would extend tho lino from
Fort Worth to tho Bouth lino of Baid terri

A nico little afl'.iir occurred at tho resi
dence of Mr. Thomas Sprout Tuesday night.
The Broom Brigade met there for exercise
previous to its appearance upon the stage
at the Opera House; and after the usual
drill had been gone through with, Miss La
Crone, omt ot the Brigade, stepped forward
and, iu a brief little informal speech pre
sented Mr. Phil. C. Barclay, the drill mas
ter, with it very handsome gold headed
cane, remarking as she handed it over, that
it the gift were put to no other use it could
serve as an instrument of punishment for
those members of tho brigade who were
disobedient or inattentive. Mr. Barclay
wascouipletely taken by surprise. In fact
he at first did not pay close attention to
Miss Lu Crone's words, thinking that she
was but making some commonplace re
marks about the past, present nnd future
of the brigade; and when be realized the
truth his confusion was tho greater. But
ho managed to express his thanks very
