-A majority of the delegates in the late

also that tho principal feature of the first
evening's eulertaimeut will be of a literary
character. A meeting of the joint water
work's committee, was to have been
held yesterday, but because of
the abseuce from the city of
Jlessrs. T.W. Halliday and L. Pine, mem

About four miles above DuQuoin, near
12 o'clock Friday night, the down freight
train on the Cairo Short Line railroad
struck a cow standing on the track ami
was derailed together with sixteen cars
which were badly wrecked. The engineer
was seriously wounded and the fireman
was killed. The incoming passenger train,
due here yesterday morning at 4 o'clock
yesterday morning, did not arrive until
about noon, being delayed l tLo -re,-k.
In speaking of the colored Republi
can voter, the OokonJa Herald (Rep.)
savs: "These vcltckk seek to sow discord
in the ranks because they have no carcass
t,, iay on. They should be set down upon
severklt." And of course, the Pulaski
Patriot (Republican) endorses these senti
ments v h it says: "Sir. Thompson of

good. The Hera'd is a reliable p u ty or

Irunk enough to think that he knew mote,

A luge attendance was at Temper,
ance hall on Friday evening at tho regular
meeting. Several short speeches were
made, brimfull of prohibition. Letters were
read from Louis Hancock, a member of
the state central Prohibition committee;
also one, fi 0111 W, C. White, of Slurpliysboro
in reference to a state ticket. A motion
was made to bold a mas meeting two
weeks fimu last Friday night, Sept. 8th, in
the afternoon, in the Eighth street hall,
a cordial invitation extended to all temper
ance workers in the county to be present.
The mass meeting is to elect delegates to
the convention to bo held in a short time
for tho purpose of placing a prohibition
ticket in tho field for tho coming seuatori-.
Complaint is miidu of persons on tho
street who go stabing their jaws with tooth
picks. Their meals are scarcely over when
they break on tho public, tooth pick in
hand, and begin to dig out the particles
that have adhered to their crunching npa -ratus
after the main body of their food have
disappeared. To some persons a 'man
picking his teeth is 11 frightful object.
They apprehend from his vigorous stabbing
that ho is in the act of committing suicide.
Others look on the tooth picker as simply
a thoughtless wretch, with uo regard for
their fillowuioii. Hoino tooth pickers
make matters worse by sucking their teeth,
tho sound of this operation having often
caused tliu strongest men to f,.(d faint for a
moment. Picking teeth is healthful but
not to tho spectator. It tho man who picks
his teeth Would go out Into thu hack yard,
or get into some vacant lot, uutil all was

As farshadowed in a card to the Argus
from Oscar Wilde, at Dixon Springs, some
days ago, it has been arranged that Tug
Wilson and Joe Gobs (Sullivau having
backed out) are to fight. Gobs' offer to
fight Tug Wilson has been accepted by
Vanderbilt, Wilson's backer, who has posted
1,000 with Oscar Wilde, whom ho nomi
nates as final stake holder. The fight is to
be according to the new inlesof tho Lon

months after signing articles and within
100 miles of New OrTeaus. Yanderbilt's
representative will meet (loss and his

Since his visit to Dixon Springs Tug

there connecting with the Illinois Central,
the two roads forming an entire system,
bids fair to branch out and become one of
the great North and South systems of the
country. The first improvement that was
made since the tide of railroad "booms"
struck the country was to change tho gage
from five feet to the standard gage, making
it about the only standard-gage road south
of the Ohio river. The system now con

from Kosciusko, Miss., in a northeasterly di

174 miles. The survey was made some
years ago, but on account of the depression
of business at that time the construction of
the road was for tho time postponed.
Within the past year and a half the right
of way ha3 been secured, and now the con
struction of the road is an assured fact.
The road will pass through some of the
nufct' fertile lands in Mississippi, and also

that in all probability the branch will be
extended north of Decatur, some miles into
the mineral and coal lands of Tennessee,

OF THOMAS SIcCLURE.
When so prominent a man bb Thomas
MoClurn, of this county, passes from out
of a community forever, the
event ami the man deserves
more than a passing notice. Not tho imme-
li ite neighborhood in which ho lived ahnie,
hut this whole county, was greatly and per
manently benefited because Sir. SlcCIuro
lived in it, ami how and to what extent he
id this can not be a tn ilt-tr of total iudif
tienco to those wdio survive him here, ami
who share iifthesi) benefits.
Sir. MeCluro camo to this county quite
a young num. lie came one day 111 about
dm ye ir 18 (2 to 1'ie hoiiso of tho father of
Sheriff Hodges, at Unity, and said ho was
in search ofjii ; uncle, Slathow SIcClure, who
lived at Clear Creek, lie had tiaveled
many miles mi foot, and was penniless,
hungry, tir"d ami mcigerly clad. The
principal poition of his suit consisted oT a
pair of bed-tick punts, and his wardrobe
was tied up in a red bandana and bung
Irom the end of a stick neroftg his shoulder.
.Mr. Hodges kindly took hi 111 in, gave him
what lie needed in the way of food and
rof t, and then directed him to his destina
tion. His uncle h id a small farm and a
tract of t mi t h i 1; i lund. Young Thomas
found hi iinc-te, applied for a job and got
it. Alter a lew days' rest. Thomas was
told to go out in the woods to make rails
at about thiity cents per hundred. He
went, woi ked a week cutting down some
the finest looking trees on
the place and expected to do a
big job of splitting the next week,
lie spent Saturday prepaiiug wedges,
etc. Next Slonday ho labored all day, from
eaily morn' till after sundown, trying to
niiike a single rail, and without Buccess.
lie hud spent a week cutting cypress
trees and, of course, be - couldn't
split a single one of them. He
went home and told ths ' old nun he
thought he would quit making rails, and he
He got married shortly after and '.hereby
came into possession of not only an excel
lent wife, but of forty acres of land near his
uncle's place. This was the beginning of
his remarkably and uniformly nieces .fill
career. He went to work with rn energy
anil tact which was in direct contrast to
that of the small fanners all around him.
His farm was always the cloiiest, his crops
were the best cultivated, bis harvests were
the richest. But his find wife died a few
years afterwards and in about 1852 he
moved to Thebes where he went into a
small business and soon alter married a
Miss Overby, his second wife, now living.
But he rooti returned to Clear Creek con
tinued to give all his attention to his little
farm, increased it in size every year, always
using rare good judgement in selecting his
acres and in making theiu yield all there
was in them. lb was tlio life of the neigh
borhood iu which he lived. Bis activity
was contHgeous. These who lived
around him, who had lived indolently,
whose lands hud theretofor been carelestly
cultivated, and whose crops had been mis-
crab e. became lealmis. A rivalry was
created; Thomas SlcClure's good counsel
was naught and freely given; the farmers,
for miles around, were awakened as from
a Rip Van Winkle slumber; the little farnw
assumed a more cheerful appearance;
crops were better, prosperity greater and
more general; a comparative wilderness
was transformed as if by magic into green
emblazoned or golden fields, and to-day
there is not a piece of liner farming coun
try in this state than can be seen in Clear
Creek precinct and vicinity, and Thomas
SIcClure is, in a greater measure than any
other single man, responsible for it.
Thomas SlcClure's property, at the time
of his death, comprised 1,872 acres all un
der cultivation, furnished with all neces
sary buildings of a substantial charae'er
and with all the improved farm
ing tnacliinciy of the day. All
this land is iu tho vicinity of
Clear Creek, where he owned his first forty
acres, and the view from his neat, com
fortable borne is a fine one, especially iu
harvest time, when, standing upon the front
step of t'10 bouse, one can see over level
fields, covered with finely growing products
of various kinds, stretching a full mile to
either sub.' and three quarters of a mile in
width. This single field comprises oVer
eight hundred acres. A good grist mill
and two stw mills are also among
the industries established . and kept in
operation by Mr. SlcCIuro. Some years ago
Mr. SIcClure sold over ten thousand bush
els of wheat I ruin his farms, and last year
lie 80ld KiM'IITKICS THOUSAND, FOUR
HUNimKi) bushels of wheat which he sold
at tl.:4 per I11M11 I and which nettkd him
over seventeen thousand dollars. About
eight yens ugo he relused nil offer of if 105,
000 for his farms and since then he im
proved iheui considerably."
Thomas SlcCiute was about sixty years
old wlieu he died. His death was the re
suit of no particular ailment, but of f
gradual giving way of his physical organ
ism under a continued heavy strain. He
hadieeii gradually sinking for about throe
years, and several years ago, wheu Circuit
Clerk livin was visiting in the weBt, he
(SIcClure) Intended to follow Mr. Irvlu and
with him roam over the mountains and
prairies for a season, but business con
siderntions prevented it, Ho was a man of
no small amount of intelligence and very
popular. So much so that in 1877 he was
urged by tbe Democracy of tho county to
, make tbe race far the lower house of the
legislature, but he loved his farms too well
and refused tho honor. Ho was a liberal
man ordinarily, but in business transac
tions guarded Ilia interests well. He was
sociable, brave, determined, kind, as ho
proved frequently in his daily life at homo
and elsewhere. Ho was, in a word, an ex
emplary man and farmer, who proved what
can bo done in this county if one has tho
w ill. He leaves his w ife and four children,
Jennie, Caroline, Thomas and Claude.
Caroline is married, and since the death of
Claude, about a yeir ago, Thomas is tho
