At a point about half a mile above
Goose pond on tho now county road there
are ponds of water on either side, created
by the cavities mado in casting up the em
bankment ami aubsequeut high rivers.
When tho water went down innumerable
small fish were left in tho ponds. The
water became stale aud the fish all died
and now lie along the edges of the ponds,
emitting an awful stench. Tho woods
around about are full of-cranes and buz
zards and other voracious birds, but
they all seem to have sickened
of tho odorous food which is
so thick and so "loud" near by them.
They sit like so many statues on the bare,
stubby limbs of dead trees, eyeing ono la
zily and allowing the fish to stink and
shine, and shine ana stink, to the great
displeasure of all passers-by. Tho county
board should immediately import a new
flock of buzzards.
The fire companies feel Bouiewhat
slighted because of the Argu's seemingly
studied failure to make any mention rele-
tive of their good work at Sunday morn
ing's fire, and its particular mention of the
work of one of the transfer boats which
was not at tho scene of the conflagration at
all. Tho hr companies have reason to be
offended, because every one of them and
nearly every member of every one oi
them, worked nobly for several hours against
many disadvantages was a lack of good
hose, which in theso times of distructive
conflagrations tho city council should im
mediately remove. Tho steamer Morgan,

On Saturday Mnurice Clancy and J"hn
Shanuessy, two "pals" whose names, by
r':son of their association, upon various
occasion, with matteis of doubtful moral
ity, do not excite very great respect in
the minds of those who know them best,
espied a countryman on the street whom
they thought they could victimize. They
in vie the man's acquaintance, enticed him
into a saloon, made him a little tipsy, and
thou proposed "a game." The countryman
consented ; the party sat down at a table near
a window at which outside, unknown
to tho p irty within, Officer" Wims stood and
watched tho whole proceedings. Clancy
pretended to be tho countryman's friend
his long lout brother, as it were, aud ho
was selected as stake holder. Shawnessy
wielded tho pictures and both winked and
grinned, and grinned and winked at each
other, as they robbed tho countryman of his
hard earned dollars ono by one. Clancy

tho same time conveying to his unscrupu

character of his victim's "hand."
Yesterday the two "black logs" wore
brought before Magistrate Comings for
trial. Their victim and tho officer appeared

MRS.S. S.TAYLOR DEAD.
Diko: Sunday morning at the hour of
8 o'clock, at Springfield Ills. Mrs. Taylor,
wife of Col. S. S. Taylor, of this city. Mrs.
Taylor's remaius will arrive at Beech Giove
oemotery on the down express this morn
ing at half past ten o'clock, and a special
to meet it will leave Cairo, from Bigbth
street, at 9 :!10. This train will halt to take
on people at Twentieth street. The funeral
exercises will be at the grave. - Friends of
the deceased and family are respectfully
invib'd to attend. - ' .
Tbe Cairo public received tbe" irewj of
Mis. Taylor's death with general and unu
ine feelings of sorrow. The sad event was
entirely unexpected. Mrs. Taylor had been
in Springfield Ills., for 6orae time aud was
believed to be in good health. But she
wasaffiicted with heart disease and a few
days before her death she had a mild attack
of chills and fever. She was nearly sev
enty years of oge.
CAIRO'S LATEST CONFLAGRATION.
Sunday morning about 3 o'clock tho
alarm of fire wuuded by the bells in the city
and the steamboat whistles on the river,
gave notice that the fire fiend had again
broken loose in the city, and the continued
sounding of theso messengers of evil proved
that tho conflagration was not an insignifi
cant ono. The fire was raging in the rear
end ot the Planters bouse and of the general
office building of the Iron Mountain rail
road company and Tacific express company.
The five fire companies of tho city hurried
to tho seem, as did also the transfer steam
ers and tho tuus, and but a few minutes
elapsed from the time the alarm was given
until six or eight streams of water were
plaving upon the raging flames. But,
though the entire land Uie department, as-
sisted by our floating voluntary fire depart.
ment, worked with all possible energy and
effectiveness, tho flames fed by a large quan
tity of oil, gained and maintained the
supremacy and within two hours nothing but
the forward portions of the massive brick
walls remained of the two fine structures
which once had been.
I'bis time the cause of the firo is not a
mystery as is so often tho case. It was
the result of the careless handling of a
lamp in the oil room of the Planter's house,
situated in tho basement of the railroad
ollice building and connected with the ho
tel basement by au archway through the
brick wall. The lamp was taken down
there by one of tho bell boys of tho
hotel who had been seut to get somo oil,
and he accidyutly dropped tho lamp causing
the oily floor and the oil in tho casks to
ignito and tho fire to spread with lighten
ing rapidity throughout the basements of.

At tho time of tho fire there were be
tween fifteen and twenty lodgers In their
rooms upstairs, most of whom saved all
their belongings, but some of thorn lost all
but what they could put on hastily, and
several escaped barely with their lives.
One of the latter was a drummer from
Cincinnati, whoso first intimation of the
terrible truth was a choking sonsatiou which
aroused him from his slumber. He opened
his eyes snd found tho room filled with
Binoke to a degroo which mado every iu
incut's stay dangerous to his life. Ho
groped around for his clothing and in
doiug bo camo iu contact with the wall of
the room, which, to usu his own expression,
was "rod hot." Ho wont out into tho hall
which.was also fillod even more densely
than his room with mnoke and hot air.
Ho found tho door loading to the dining
room locked, but burst it open and just at
this moment tho front doors were opened,
ami a draft was created, a column of firo
and smoko swept through tho hall with a
roar aud a forco which would have provod
too much fur any living thing within tho
The building was story abovo tho
top oftholoveo, with a basement below.
It was ono hundred feet long by twenty-
fivo wide. It was owned by Mr. John
Gocklo, of St Louis, wdio conducted a very
successful business in it for a number of
years. It was omit tn 1B70 at a cost ot
over thirteen thousand dollars, aud it was
insured for five thousand, in the Eastern
and Pheonix companies, of
Hartford, represented here by Mr. II. II.
The other building was occupied by the
general offices of tho Iron Mountain rail
road company, and by tho Pacific express
company. Tho interior and exterior had
been but recently very handsomely reno
vated and was furnished and arfanged con
veniently and tastily. Mr. H. II. Milburn ,
agent of the company, had his office newly
and elegantly papered anil otherwise beau
tiful only last week. The railroad offices
were in the rear end of the building, just
over tho oil room in which fire broke out.
The flames broke through the floor there
first and with a flash ignited everything in
tho offices. AU the counters and desks and
shelving, containing the valuable records
and books and papers and stationary were
destroyed. Nothing was saved except
what was in the safe. Tho estimated loss
to the railroad company, so far as it
can be measured by dollars
and cents will reach not less than 1000
and there was no insurance.
Tho Pacific express company. Mr. flail,
agent, occupied the right hand forward
portion of the first floor, and this company
also lost everything ia the way of office
fixtures, stationary, etc. But all articles
of especial value were in tho safe and were
intact. The loss to the company will reach
about '200. Mr. Hall's loss iu the way of
personal affects will reach about iO, and
that of Mr. John Breeti, oriver of the ex
press wagon, who lost clothing etc., will
reach $40. none of which personal proper
ty was insured.
This building was also a three story one
The upper stories were connected with
those of the Planter's house and were used
by tho managers of this institution for
bed-rooms, parlors, etc. It was also one
hundred feet long by twenty-five wide. It
was owned by Mr. Peter Neff, one of
Cairo's real estate kings, who built it in
1870 at a cost of ten thousand dollars. It
was insured for only three thousand, in the
German American, of New York repre
Ben ted here by Mr. C. N. Hughes.
Mr. Frank Metcalt who is messenger
for the I'acific express company, lost cloth
ing, etc., which ho kept in the office, to the
amount oj sixty or seventy five-dollars.
But while this was all the damage r
sultinc directly from the hre, there were
some indirect damages to adjoinining build'
ings which will prove considerable. Mr
A. T. DcBauu's oyster saloon and restau
rant was badly wrecked by a portion ot
the wall of the railroad otlico building,
which fell upon the rear end of the res
taurant which is frame, and crushed it to
tli ground in a shapeless mass. Mr. De
Baun's loss will reach about one thousand
dollars which is amply c ivered by insur
anco in cornpauies represented by Mr. C. N.
The roof of the business house of Messrs.
Stratton & Bird was also somewhat dam
aced by the heat.
In the distruction of the Planter s House
and railroad office building
the city and branches of business
conducted in the buildings sus
tained a great Hhock, but one which prom
ises to be but short-lived. Tho owners ot
buildings are gcutlcman of means, one of
whom Mr. Neff, is a man of good judge
ment and energy and has unbounded faith
in Cairo and her future prosperity,
Mr.O.'cklu is not a resident of Cairo and
has now but little interest in it. He had
for so. ue time been desirous of selling tho
Planters House, and it is supposed therefore
that now that it is destroyed ho will not re
build it. But those who occupied the two
buildings, all very anxious that both shall
bu rebuilt immediately are as they desire
to agaiu occupy thorn in the sumo manner
as before. Mr. Milburn, of the Iron Moun
tain company, is especially anxious that
Mr. Neff shall put up a new house on the
old site at once, llu must have a building
very soon and he wants it as near to tho old
site as possible. There is a pressing de
mand for business houses generally and for
theso tuo in particular, it is to bo hoped
that Messrs, Neff and Oockle may be pro
vailod upon to speedily mttisfy, as far as
is in their power, this demand.
Among tho incidents of tho tiro not bo-
