Early yesterday morning tho rear
portion of tho old Cooper ubop back of tho
Egyptian mills, at tho southeast corner of
Twenty Ur6t street ami U.munorcial avenue,

machinery, but none of the workmen
were present. lk'Bido the building no dam

little. It is likely that the wreck au l the

nt Into it lias been noticed
that they me becoming lew so steadily. In
fact so visible has the defect become that
Mr. Eehuing had decided to vacate it
unless the owner, Mr. Peter Kobler, shouhl
render it safe. This Mr. Kobler has de
cided to do by taking down the upper
stoiy, which work was begun yesterday
under the direction of Mr. John I'oor who

-The location of the shops of the St.
Louis and Cairo railroad at Sparata has not
been consummated, aud the company is
now looking to Ebt St. Louis as an availa
ble point. If the company would cast its
eye in this direction it might gain some
thing. Cairo can offer all necessary ac
commodations for the shops, can offer ad
vantages which no other point along the
line can, and could also relieve the compa
ny of some embarrassments. From a stand
point of self interest (from which all cor
porations, of course, always look at every
thing) the St. Louis and Cairo railroad
company could, perhaps, not find abetter,
oreveu another as good, a point ou its line.

found that the bank was fumed alternately
ot sand ridges and clay bottoms. From
the former, some feet above tho level of tho

in some instances with considerable force;
and also that In these places the
liver had abraded ' the bank, marking
each sand ridge by a small bay extending
the entire breadth of tho rldgu mid liom
twenty to fifty feet inland. Tho latter, the
clay bottoms, were dry and extended out

preparations for the convention are being

one selecting their delegates to the conven

or when or where the convention is to be

The reason of this delay, and the way to
prevent a dilemma are given in the
following from the Jonesboro Gazette.

A YOLNO O KUM AN TAKES FIFTEEN liltAI.VSOK
MURKS IN E'AND HIES IN LKsS TUAN I'M E.N
, TV MINLTKS,
People in the vicinity of Messrs. Harclay
Bros., Ohio levee drug store bast ui;:ht about
eight o'clock wurcttartle l by the announce
ment that young Henry A. I) : La Mot, for
sometime porter in the wholesale house of
this firm, had taken poison and was lying
at the poiut of death. Enquiry proved
that the announcement wns true. Y'oung
La Mot had taken, if his own state
ment, n;iliugly made to Mr. James
Birclay, be true, fifteen grains of strychnine
in a glass with water, and a tew moments
later he lay on his bed, his frame racked
with violent spasms and his miu 1 in a
stupor from which it never awakened.
The citcuuistanas of the BhVir are briefly
tol l. During the day LaMot bad told
Messrs. Barclay and the clerks in the store
that he would commit suicide. He did so
in a manner which did not excite any ap
prehension on the part of any one, and his
trireat was replied to wita souio light
remark. But he made Ins preparations
daring the afternoon. He took a bath and
got his clean wash an 1 dressed himself up
in hi best clothes. About eight o'clock be
was seeu to go up staiis to hi room over
the store, carrying a basket containing his
clothes in one hand and a glass of waier in
the other. Mr. James Barclay w as the only
one who gave the young man's threats to
kill himself any serious thought. He
noticed LaMot's absence from the store,
made inquiry, and learned that he was up
staiis iu his room. He went up stairs aud
called, but got m answer; he went to
LaMot's room and opened the door just in
time to see him swallow a glass of water.
Being asked what he bad done, LaMot
smiled, thuw up both bands and said : "I
have taken fifteen grains of poison and
I'm going to die." Mr. Barclay saw at a
glance that the young man meant what ho
said ; he hurried down stairs, sent clerks in
different direction for physicians and sent
one up stairs, who found LaMot lying at
full length on his bed, eyes closed, hands
over his ( best, and singing, in a low voice
a German funeral hymn. The song was
suddenly smothered in groans, the face
became distorted, every muscle in bis
body begun to quiver and in a few moments
more a series of horrible spasms toro every
limb and threw tho dicing man violently
about the bed in spite of the efforts of the
clerk and suverat other assistants to hold
him down. Strong emetics were adminis
tered with much difficulty, but they had no
effect and a few minutes later tho death
struggle was over. Coroner Fitzgerald was
notified who took charge of tho remains
and will have them decently interred early
Do La Mot was a very intelligent young
man; bo was able to speak seven different
languages and whs a Latin scholar. Ho
was an Alsiccan, His lathorwnsa minis
ter under Louis Nioleon during tho
Franco-Prussian war, and after tho war
which ended so disastrously for that mon
arch, his father lost his position, his pro
perty in Alsace was confiscated Hud he
had to remove to Wurtenilierg where
his wife had a fine estate.
Youcg Do LaMoto got into some trouble,
Jib nature of which ho never told to any
one here, but which compelled him to flee
the country and come, here
he said. Ho came to New
York about threo years ago, went
from there to Cincinnati, then to St. Louis,
then to New Orleans, then to Galveston
where he was employed iu tho surgical do
partmutit of a hospital, then to Mexico
where he was likewise employed, and after
visiting several other places, came bore.
Shortly after his arrival here, be applied to
Dr. Dunning for a situation, saying that
he intended to become a physician and
would do any kind ot work about tho
office If tho Dr. would allow him access to
the library. Tho Dr. had no use for him,
but recommended him to Mr. Breihan who
employed him a while, About four months
ago ho went to work for Messrs. Barclay
Bros, as porter. Ho evidently felt out of
ploco, for ho always wanted to do work
about tho house which he
did not understand end showed
a dislike for tho work, for which
had been employed. Ho expressed himself
s discouraged in his elfrt to master
the uiodical profession, and began to drink
somo and to use morphine. His idea of
death was very niateralistic as was evident
from his conversations on that point with
some of his fiiends. He had not corres
ponded with his relatives at homo since his
arrival here and' did cot
want them to know where ho
was. He has two waters, three brothers, and
father and mother living in Wurtcmbcrg,
who have doubtless giieved much over
bis absence, who certainly prized
his life much more highly than he did and
who will be shocked beyond measure if
the new of his terrible death reaches them.
