Bb'KIAL OF MAJOR WM. WOl.FB.
At two o'clock, Sunday afternoon,
large coucourse of sad-faced and sadder
hearted people gathered ou the streets and
at the residence of their late fellow-citizen
and friend, Major William Wolfe, to pay
a tribute to his memory, the last on this
side of tho grave. It needed but a look at
the number who gathered at tho house and
lined the streets along which the funeral
corlcge was to puss, to understand in how
high an estimation tho dead was held iu
The family of tho docoased and his
closest frieuds having all they could bear
under their load of grief, the details of the
Bad occasion were carried out by friends.
These were under tho direction of Judge
Bross, president of the Alexander County
Bank, wherein Msjor Wolfe was a director,
assisted by Mr. P. W. Barclay.
TUB PALL HEARERS
numbered eighteen: six from tho
Delta Fire company, six from
among the directors of the bank and six
of the employes of the "New York store.
Those from the bank were Messrs. Henry
Well.-, Thos. J. Kerth, E. A. Buder, Wm.
Kluge, C. M. Osterloh and Peter Neff;
from the members of Delta Fire company,
Thus. W, Ilallidny, Chas. Lancaster, John
Hodges, Chas. F. Nellis, J. 8. McGahey
and E. A. Burnett; from the New York
store employes, Elmer Comings, M. Cul-

The casket whs a handsome uielal

tho sides and ends and silver or-

silver plate was engraved the name and age
of tho deceased. At the house after the

had boon read by Rector Davenport of the

latives took their last heart-breaking,

formed on the street with the Cornet Band
at the head, followed in order by the Delta
Fire Company; tho New York Store Em
ployes to the number of twenty-five or
more; tlio pall-bearers; tho hearse con
taining the caske'; the family in carriages;
followed by hundreds of friends and ac
quaintances, and to tho slow time of the
dirge played by the baud wtoso tnouruful
notes found an echo in every heart, the
sad cortege marched to the railroad where
a special train of seven coaches was in
waiting to convey it to the beautiful Beech
Grove Cemetery. Tho same order whs
observed in the march from tlm train to
the erravo in the Cemetery.
Arrived at the grave tho casket was low
ered, and while the ban J played softly, in
tho minor chords, the clerks of tho New
York Store gathered in a circlo around the
open grave. Mr. EroeU Pettitt, as their
leader, for them delivered the following
sorrowful, short farewell address to him
whoduiiug lil'o had endeared himself to
them by his many acts of kindness:
"We your past miployea sadly gather
around your urave to strew those evergreens
in cotnemoration of our departed and loved
superior, JUj. Wm. Wolfe;
Green may be the turf above him,
Friend of our better days,
None know bim but loved him,
None named him but with praise;
May God bless him."
With these appropriate words each clerk
dropped a brauch of evergreen upon the
coffin as an emblem that remembrance of
their employer and friend would ever re
main green in their hearts.
There was probably no more pleasant or
unassuming geutleman in our city than
Major Wolfe, and rertainly none more
widely known or universally respected, as
was evidenced by the numbers at home
who desired to show their grief for the
dead and respect for the living by being
present at his burial, aud the numbers
abroad who sent mementos of affection and
words of sympathy.
THE FUNERAL TRAIN
was the largest that ever left Cairo, aud
yet hundreds of friends were compelled to
remain at home for lack of room. The
fl.iral decorations, notwithstanding this is
not tho seasou for flowers, wore profuse and
elegant. A large pillow of camelias and
tea-roses, with the word "Rest" in blue
forget-me-nots and miuionettes iu the ceu-
tro, was sent by Messrs. Crow, Ilargadino
& Co., from St. Louis. A cross aud auchor,
emblems of hope, made of camelias aud
tube-roses was the gift of the Bryan, Brown
Shoo Company, also of St. Louis. The
wreaths, boquets, etc., were of flowers from
Ullin and other pi sees, and the initial
"V," made of opproprito flowers, was tho
work of Mr. M. F. Leftcovitch.
Tho following resolutions which were
passed by the society to which Major Wolfe
belonged and those associated with him in
business, are not words only, of empty
sound, but are full of deep feeling and ox
press tho sympathy and sentiments of each
and all his lai o circle of friends; sym

Saturday night two negroes named
Jim Daniels aud Wes Divis got into a row

Throe persons fainted Saturday night
at th p.-rformance given by Prof. Andrcss

complete. Many in the audience were un
able to keep tho thought uppermost in

Som j idea of the amount of business
done by the Wabash road at this point may
beguinod from the following brief statement
ot facts: During the mouth of December
just closed 05,783 bales of cotton were
handled at this point received hero from
boats and southern roads and reshipped
north and oast over this road alone; and
during the ssme month 1,500 car-loads of
other freight was handled by the same
road at this point. Last Sunday the road
had 10 extra freight trains on the way be
tween this city and Carmi, within a dis
tance of one hundred miles from hero.
Captain W. M. Williams was in St.
Louis Sunday nul mado arrangements

very material one and will bo felt by the
wood dealers and consumers in this city.
Heretofore tho rates on wood from Mill
Creek aud intervening points have been
from eight to eleveu dollars per car load.
Now a car load of five cords can bo brought
here from Mill Creek, Springvillo or Elco
for six dollurs, or from Bernard's, Swdusky
Hodges' Park and Beech Ridge for five
dollars per car, or ono dollar per cord. It
is also hinted th it it halt a cord or bo
more than five should happen to be in a car,

anger and proceed to tear figures into

Last nights' performance of tho Hess
opera company at the Opera Houso was a
great success both as to the house and the
performance. Nearly all the best seats in
the house had been taken several days be
fore and were occupied. It was an en
lightened audience composed of probably
seveu hundred people who were able to dis
tinguish a good play, good music and
song, and to appreciate them. Tho perfor
mance was in every respect up to the high
anticipations of the audience. Composed of
some of the very best of talents the operatic
stage In the country, thu troupe did itself
and its reputation full justice, and gave the
audience ono of the finest performances
yet given on this stage. Miss Abbiu Car
riugton iu the role of "Arlino," was superb.
Her ringing throughout was fine, but her
rendition of "I Dreamed I Dwelt in Marble
Halls, thrilled the audiouce and was re
ceived with loud, prolonged applause :audat
tho begin n in of the fourth act when she
appeared to sing the Wsltz Song, "Chi
Goija,"sho received an ovation and her ren
dition of tho Bong..was followed by a storm
ot applause, which continued until she
again stepped forward to repeat it. The
most musical of voices under perfect con
trol, filling the home now with wild, pas
sionate harmony, and then moving tho
air with tho softest and sweetest of strains,
each note distinct, perfect, sho gives evi
dence not only of a rare natural talent,
but of trainining such hs but few

genius, which Mr. C 1). Hess, under whose
tutorship the peerless Perepa Posa, MihB
