of Monnt Vernon, stating that a negro
named Robert Frances and a fhio young
Newfoundland dog had elopod irom that
place and coma to Cairo, and asking that
they bo arrested upon their arrival hero.
Tho dispatch camo too lale to enable the
chief to meet the train upon w hich the
eloping couple arrived, but a search over
tho city soon resulted iu the capture of both
negro and dog by the chief and officer Ma
hanny. They were slill in jail hero yester
day, awaiting the arrival of Marshal
Lattnrfiold, of Mount Vernon, who had been
uotiflud of the capture.

Two cases of murder and suicido are
tho chief tragedies in the Fourth-of July
dispatches. At Cincinnati Jacob Wagner,
an intimate acquaiutancoof Henry Cole, who
last week killed his wife, his daughter, and
himself, came homo drunk, and after taking
a shoi f Bleep, shot his wifo through the lies
killing her instantly, and then put a build
in his own temple, inflicting a fatal wound
At Pittsburg George Rodgers shot his wife,
inflicting fatal wounds, and then shot him
self in tho temple.
The cases of the City of Cairo vs. Dr.
U. II. Leach came up in tho court of Justice
J. II. Robinson yesterday forenoon and oc
copied nearly all day. The charges were
disorderly conduct, carrying concealed
weapons and assault with intent to kill
all growing out of tho difficulty between
tho Dr. and the barkeeper of Mr. Gross'
siloon at the corner of Fourteenth street
and Washington avenue some days ago.
The Dr. was represented by Messrs. Mul
keysnd Leek, and tho city by Mr. George
W. Hendricks. Of the first charge thu Dr.
was acquitted, but of tho second he was
found guilty and fined twenty-five dollars
and costs; upon tho third charge, assault
with intent to kill, an examination will be
had this morning at nine o'clock.
-The ongin of Wednesday's fire is
believed to have been incendiary. Tho
reasons for this belief are several and good.
There was no way in which the firo could
possibly have broken out without immedi
ate human agency. Everything was closed,
the meat was all covered with a thick
layer of salt, no rags used in groaso which
might have ignited wore laying around.
But most important of all, a back window
which had always been closed and even
nailed Mown, was observed by Mr. Jeseph
Able to bo open and supported by a stick,
a short time before the alarm of fire was
given. Tho belief is that some one entered
the ware house, stole a quantity of meat and
set tin) to the building iu ord r to prevent
the di.covery of the theft.
Tho last regular meeting for the sum
mer, of tlio Woman's Club and Library As
sociation convened at the Library Room
Wednesday afternoon. Some routine busi
ness was transacted by the Board of Trus
tees. In the association meeting was read
a very interesting letter of kindly greeting
and withdrawal from Mrs. H. Leigh ton,
now iu Canada, who will soon remove to
Iowa. The literary exercises included
an extremely entertaining account of some
Boston clubs and notable eastern women,
(among them Prof. Maria Mitchell, of
Vdssar,) by Mrs. A. B. Sitfird, and the
reading of a valuable criticism by Prof.
Harris, of the Concord School of Philoso
phy, on Michael Angelo's Panic or Three
Fates. The picture, a remarkably fine
copy, was fully discussed, and tde session
was full of enjoyment. The club adjourned
Nothiug so exasperates a person of in
telligence as to meet one of those amiable
idiots who always accost one when he is
melting from heat with tho remark, "Hot,
ain't it?'' Very warm weather we're hav
ing," or something of that sort. Hut just
think what a wmld this would be if all
these creatures had intelligence and talked
nothing but sense. How would you like it
if every man who stopped you in the sun
to t-peak to you should say, "What are
your opinions regarding tho comparative
merits of the Kantain and Hegelian philo
sophies?" "Do you not think the com
structive thoughts of Emerson ure of moro
advantage to the literary and social world
than the often destructive utterance1! of
Curly lo?" "Is it not your opinion that a
judicious application of nubsidics by the
general government would bo desirable, to
the end that the United States might ru
gain her proper position in tho ocean carry
ing trade?" or other such conundrums) By
Hercules t in less than a week you would
be ready to embrace the man who should
remark, "Is this hot enough for you)"

Tho Evening Gazette, of Sterling, 111 ,
under dato of June !J0th, gives tho follow
ing account of the drowning of a son i f
Mr. Hoofstitler, tho noted temperance
orator: ''This afternoon about 2 o'clock a
dozeu boys, ranging in ago from ten to
thirteen years, were iu swimming at what
is known as Rice's Point, when a tragical
accident happened. It seems that all the
boys but one, John II. Hoofstitler, could
swim, and they rowed a few rods iuto thu
Btream in a skiff. The boys suy they pro
tested strongly against his jumping from tho
boat, but after the lest had all dived from
it, ho said ho could Bwim ashore, and
plunged in. He soon began to sink. One
of the boys said bo went to him and offered
assistance, but he did not accept it. He
soon sunk from sight. The boys gave the
alarm and a crowd speedily gathered. The
river has been dragged and hooks have
been used ever since iu search' of his body,
but up to this hour, 4 :40 p. m., the search
has been unavailing. John was a bright,
intelligent lad, who will be remembered by
Sterling people as one who took part in
the different public exercises of tho Secoud
ward school. He was about twelve years
of ago and the oldest eon of his parents,
whose grief at the untimely death of their
bey is without comfort. Every effort has
been used by Mr. Hoofstitler to find the
body. List night a cannon was fired at
regular inteivals. At this hour, 5 p. m.,
June 30, all efforts have proved unvailing."
In a note to Rev. George, dated July 2d,
Mr. Hoofstitler says that no tidings of the
boy had then been received.
The brewers of Iowa who have worked
for years in building up their business, ami
have done much to promote the growth of
the state's material lutercsts, now find their
business prospects ruined and their property
depreciated iu value by the adoption of
the new liquor law. These men are good
and thrifty citizens; the law, when they
went iuto the business of brewing, virtually
said to theui that their interests should be
protected, aud that they should hnve the
same tights as other citizens. Now, after
they have toiled for, years and have put all
their money and all their energy in one
field of enterprise, they find the law sud
denly turu upon them and betray them,
aud their property despoiled about as ef
fectu illy as if confiscated in some bar
barous country where tho only law is the
law of force. Any effort, dictated by rea
son, right and charity, to redeem the fallen
in any vice, has and deserves tho hearty
support of all good people, but a reckless
war upon any doss of citizens and a wanton
confiscation of the results of many years of
labor, by a majority ;which chooses to try
so.ne half-fanatical .experiment, is nothiug
short of barbarism. There are in Iowa
many thousands of people who choose to
drink beer and they have been buying it of
the brewers for years, when all at once, a
class ot people quite outside either the
brewers or their customers Bay to them,
"Wo are stronger that) you; wo propose to
dictate to you what you shall drink and
what you shall sell. It is true you do not
compel us to either buy beer or drink beer,
but we propose to dictate to you, bi cause
we are strong enough to do it." And so a
vote is taken and the tyranny is exercised.

I' seems that, after all, Marshal Bryant's
shot took effect and did noble work in that
it rid this world of another of its blood
thirsty human fiends. Marshal Bryant was
confident that bis shot had taken effect in
Kilgore'a body, for, he says, Kilgoro was
but about four feet from him when he fired,
pointing bis piHtol squarely and steadily at
thu murderer's breast. From the circuin-,
stances under which the body was found, it
isjudged that Kilgoro, believing that hn
was not mortally wounded, sought to escape
by biding iu tho brush, but death overtook
him before ho had go:ie very far from where
ho had lirud his laat evil shot, and ho fell
and expired alone. His body, half clad
and dirty nnd horribly mutilated by hogs,
was found by a number of colored children
where it would probably have been found
on thu day ho was shot had search been
made for him, but those who were with
Marshal Bryant very properly gavo all their
attention to their bravo, wounded, young
leader. Marshal Bryant has now captured
and wounded ot killed three or four des
perate murderers in tho vicinity where ho is
an officer, and tho people there have very
properly como to regard him as a young
man of nerve and good judgment, w ho fills
a dangorous position with much credit to
himself and benefit to the people.
