The present high prices of beef is
largely due to the fact that for the past nine
years cattle have been shipped to Europe at
the rato of 4,000 to 5,000 head per week
This is an enormous drain, and taxes beef
productiou heavily to make up the loss.
Another reason is that tho severe winter of
1890 81 and the drouth of 1881 were both
very hard on cattle and caused losses by
reducing breedi ig mid producing deaths
Beef producers would do well to make a
note of this.

St. Louis Saturday from New York. The
road, which is being pushed through the
state of Arkansas with commendable activ
ity, is now graded and timlcred to a point
about 40 miies this side of Brinkley, Mon
roe county. A big force commenced this
week tilling up the gap between Pine Bluff
and Clarendon, on the White rivet. The
grading, timbering and bridging is com
pleted ou some 190 miles in the state of
Arkansas, and about 40 miles of track are
laid on the Cairo end.
Granny Argus: "Securing the active
support of the little Bulletin for their can-
lidate was an exceedingly bad stroke of
policy on the part of the Thomas men.
Remembrance of the past would have
shown them the futility attending tho sup
port of that little sheet." 'Tis a fact.
"That little sheet's support'' was certainly
very fatal to the present city council. But
why didn't the old lady speak before?
Now that the battle is nearly over and
a few unscrupulous politicians, armed with
"ham" seem to have defeated those
tepresented by "that little sheet," armed
only with ordinary good sense, it docs seem
in very bad taste for the old woman to
sprinkle an apruu full of old rubbish called
advice uimn what she conceives to bo the
graves of the noble dead.
Yesterday morning as a boy was lead
ing a mare from the Tenth street pump to
ward Mr. A. J. Carle's livu-ry stable the
driver of Mr. Henry Brcihan's delivery
wagon, coining down the avenue, drove so
closely by the mare that one of the shafts
of the wagon caught her directly under the
left shoulder and hurried itself in the fleshy
part to the depth of six or eight inches.
The mare struggled and released herself,
uud was taken to the stable, where, up to
last evening, she was still standing, but viti
bly in great agony. The mare belongs in
Kentucky and is here in care of Mr. Rough
en, one of the tournament riders, who was
using her ever day for practice and in
tended to Use her on the Fourth of July in
the tournament. Whether or not the
animal will survive is doubtful.
In the matter of the mandamus suit
against the city council of Cairo Mr. J. R.
Cunningham says he is "none est coinbulc
mus a' damn sonum" w hicb, being interpre
ted, means, be is riot in the ring. But us
for the comity judgeship well, that's
quite another thing. His opponent may
get a lew Votes at B'M-cli Ridge, hut outside
of that tho city and county is a unit for him,
if Mr. Cunningham is to be believed. Mr.
Cunningham is as perfect h culliiiary artist
as he is unlit for a politician or lawyer, and
could, if he would apply himself strictly to
his peculiar fori, be a wealthy man inside of
a few years. He is about disgusted with
politics anyhow, since his failure to obtain
service upon the mayor and city clerk in
his suit against the city, and threatens to
to take the very sensible advice given him
by a friend recently, to ubandon politics and
law and devote himself entirely to tho most
impoitant of all human arts, cooking.
W. II. Brearly, of thy Detroit Evening
News, has issued and sent to this office, a
copy of his new tourists' guide book for
tho three $20, July excursions "From Do
tjoit to thu Sea," and return, vialho Grand
Trunk railroad. This book is a decided
improvement upon the former issues pub
lished anuually during Ihe six years that
these excursions have been carried on, hav
ing 01 well edited and illustrated pages,
and containing 4.1 maps engraved express
ly for this year's edition. The title page
oi tho cover is an exact copy in iq Cuior oi
an oil painting of Ohio Ellis Falls, near
the Glen House, iu tho Whito mountains,
ami is beautiful enough to frame. Everv
one contemplating a trip east this summer
whether they Intend going on these excur
slons or not, should send 30 cents ami so
cure one. Thoso who do not wish to invest
ten three cent stamps, in this guide book,
should send ono stamp for a circular, but
wo advise all to tako tho book. It is worth
ten times tho prico askod. and we would
also recommend the Grand Trunk railroad
route to all travelers. No bettor cnuipne
or safer lino, with more accommodating of
ficers, is iu cxis'ence.
Mr. Gladden, editor of thoThree States
claims to have in his office a great curiosi
ty. It is, sayB Mr. Gladden, in tho last
issue of his paper: "Tho copy of a letter
written by our blessed Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ, found eighty-four miles from
Iconium, sixty-five years after our blessed
Savior's crucifixion; transmitted from the
Holy City by a converted Jew; faithfully
translated from tho original Hebrew copy,
in possession of tho Lady Cuba's family, at
Mesopotamia. Tho letter was written by
Jesus Christ, and found under a great stone,
both round and large, at the foot of the
cross, eighty-four miles from Iconium, near
a village called Mesopotamia, upon this
stone was written and engraven: 'Blessed
is he that shall turn mo over." Tho sheet
contains, 'Our Savior's Letter," King Ag
barus' Letter to Christ," "Our Savior's
Answer," and "Sentulus' Epistle to tho
Senate aud Rome." In Christ's letter it
says that any person having a copy of it
will be free from all danger, that pestilence
can not touch them, nor thunder or light
ening do any hurt, besides being good to
have about sick persons. This copy be
longs to our frieud Gooden, and he con
siders himself fortunate in possession of it."
This beats eggs with strange inscriptions
ujon them all to pieces, and thoso having
any more of these in course of preparation,
had better go out of the business. They have
been fairly and completely "snowed un
der" by tho "holy letter" of Mr. Gladden.
Some people look upon ham as a very
important and a very nutritious article of
diet, and believe that its effect upon an
empty stomach and aa emaciated frame is
very lk-ntticial. S'ruo people are
right if they have in view the right kind
of ham. Ordinary ham is a good thing,
but there is an extraordinary ham, the ef
fects of which are very peculiar, ami are
D'.-tc-T.Sced to the physical constitutions of
mea tle.st not of sable colored men. The
ham we hare reference to is of recent im
portation in these parts. It bears
brand the first syllabic of which
is not fit for pious ears. Slices of it have
beon dealt out among a largo number of
our fellow citizens, in some of whom it
worked a complete transfiguration, both in
dress and manners in dress they be
came gentlcni; in manners, most anything
else. But in one instance the effects ol a
few slices of this wonderful ham wero
more remarkable still. Tho subject was
chairman of the Second ward primary and
it appears that tho ham mounted direct to
his brain, or the place where that myste
rious substance ought to have been, and
settled upon what phrenologists call the
bump of calculation, causing said bump to
actually see more iu a crowd of
thirty-one Damronites than bo could
in a crowd of thirty-seven Thomasonians.
It was certainly a remarkable case of men
tal hallucination regarding figures. Fig
ures, they pay, don't lie, but in this case
either they or Less Harris lied, and it seems
that in cither case Damron ham was to
blame for it.
Granting that, by means not as myste
rious as even a moderately sensitive and
honorable man would like, Judge Damron
has been given the delegates from four of
the five precincts in the city, tho results of
the primaries in the entire county, ho far
was as known last evening, do not show as
disastrous a defeat of the better element
of the Republican party as was at first sup
posed. News from Elco, Hodges Park
and B -ech Ridge is all favorable to Capt.
Thomas. At East Cape Girardeau, as at
several other precincts, no primaries were
held because of the storm. There is good
reiii for believing that the county will go
entirely for Capt. Thomas when tho prima
ries nre all held, which will give him
twenty-four delegates. Add these to
the eight instructed for him in tho Fifth
ward and bs will have thirty-two, or just
one half of all tho delegates in the conven
tion, which will give him no small chance
lor tho votes of Alexander
county's delegates to the con
gressional convention, if hiH partisans
manage hia interests better than they did in
the primaries. But Captain Thomas has
moro than one ward iu tho city. In tho
First ward the Damron delegates were
chosen by the minority, and the majority
put forth a second set of delegates; in tho
Second ward there are two sets of delegates,
aud in tho Third there are none, unless the
Ddtnron men selected some in a sort of
secret caucus some time after tho regularly
colled meeting had broken up in a row, in
which case they are not entitled to recogni
tion in tho county convention. In
the straightening out of this crooked state of
affairs it is safe to expect that Captain
Thomas will gain something, and that
gain, however small, will give him the vote
of the delegation from this county. If Mr.
Thomas is beaten in this city, he will have
at least tliu satisfaction of knowing thai it
was not done by tho better element of thu

O.NK MAN KILLED AND WOMAN lN.IL'llKI).
The storm of Friday night and Saturday
diil not do ms much damage at St. Louis
as was thought, yet it did considerable. A
largo number of hotisei were damaged,
many of them in tho some manner as some
in this city, by fulling trees. Tho steamer
Blue Lodge was driven against an iron
pier, ami she was sunk. Tho City of Hel

cidents. At Leavenworth four children
were killed in a Catholic female academy,
which was wrecked. A fine iron span
bridge between Arniourdalo and Kansas
City was wrecked. In Kansas City not an
cxpoHo 1 building remained whole, and the
damage will foot up two hundred thou
sand dollars. At Brownsville, Mo., Fort
Scott, Kan.; Valley Falls, Kas.; Marshall,
Mo. Iowa City, Iowa, and even Amster

was more or less severe.
In this city and county tho following
itiHtances of damage, not mentioned in
