the old woman who has been in the Hiber
nian engiue house for several days back,
under the care of Dr. Woo l. She came
here from Oieeola, several months ago,
lived in the C. U. Clark abomination for
sever il weeks, wad ejected from there, for
non-payment of rent perhaps, went to St.
Louis, wn3 sent hack here and roamed about
our streets begging for several days, when
sho was taken sick and laid down in the
engine-house. Dr. Wood has temporarily
provided her with food, medicine and bed
ding there, and yesterday afternoon, upon
an order from the mayor, City Comptroller
Foley sent a ton of coal there to keep up a
fire near her. Tbesa provisions are but
temporary, until the Dr. shall have com
pleted preparations for taking care of the
woman permanently at the expense ol the
county, with parties living in a house
known a9 the "Grannie Lee" hou?e, which
has almost always served in this way.
A meeting of the incorporator of the
Southern Illinois Immigration society was
to have been held in one of the parlors of
The Halliday Fridy afternoon, but there
wa? none. The incorporators are Mr. M. J.
Howley, of Alexander; Jno. S. Cium, of
hohuson; Jno. F. McCartney, of Massac;
G. F. Myer, of Pulaski; E. A. WilUrd,of
Union, and George W. Young, of William
s m. Of these gentlemen only two were
present, Messrs. M. J. Howley and John S.
Crura; but Mr. G. P. Myer was ponderously
represented by II m. Joseph P. R jbarts. The
object of tbo meeting was to take a glance
at the subscription books, see how much
stock had been subscribed by the several
counties, and to take the next neceaiy
steps to place the society upon a firm foot
ing and give it activitity ; but as the repre
sentation wag so very small no meetiug was
hold. So far sb we were able to learn, but
two of the thirteen counties represented in
the society have subscribed to tho stock,
these being Pulaski and Johnson counties,
the former taking $450 and the latter $730.
Evidently the society is on the verge of
dissolution, which is to be regretted.
Complaint is loudly made by the peo
ple of Elco ij this county, against the St.
Louis and Cairo road, on account of alleged
serious neglect on the part ot said road.
Until a few days ago, Elca was a station
on the road just as any other station; it had
an agent, traiog made regular stops for pas
sengers and freight, it haa a post-office and
mail was regularly delivered. But a few
days ago all this was changed; the agent is
gone, trains do not stop excopt when
hailed, freight loaded in cars and bound
for Cairo has been standing on the track
there for over a week, and the mail is
not delivered at the post-offloo. All this, it
true, is a seriom indictment of the company
and is worthy of further investigation. It
is alleged th it tho company has taken
these means of punishing the people of
Elco for ullegud sympathy with the people
of Ca ro iu their enduivor to guard their
own interests in their dealings with the
comply. While we cannot recall a singla
instance which would prove the company
to bo posst-Kse i of a broad mind, yet we
can not without futther investigation be
lieve that it has a soul small enough to
stoop to Btich mean muasures to satisfy so
contemptible a purpose.
Some time ago a cxw was killed on
the Wabash track at Eldorad . The
animal belonged to a family flamed Kilgore
who had tho cow apprai-e I and wero paid
by thecompiny the full amount. But for
some reason which we have been unable to
leurn they have since had a deep grudge
against tho road nnd have manifested this
feeling in tho most devilish way. Obstruc
tions were placed upon thu tracks, of a na
ture and In a manner which must have
caused tho wreck of the flmt train that came
along if tho engineer woro not moro than
usually cauJloun. The first two or three
times these obstructions wero not looked
for and came near causing fearful destruc
tion of life and property. Tho perpetrators
of these outrages were not known; they did
their Inluinous work at night
anu in uueli mauner and at
such places as enabled them to eg
cape even suspicion. But of Into they bo
came bolder; the obstructions were placed
upon tracks in broad daylight aud nearer
to the homes rf the perpetrators. The com
piny had all along taken tin awes to de
tect the guilty partes. It ha I employed
Constable Shcelitn here, and an officer in
Massac county, to work up the case. Officer
She ban gave the matter much atteution in
a quiet way, and on Friday proof enough
had been fouud to juatify tho arrest of
Frank and John Kilgore, of Eldorado, who
are now iu custody and will be tried at tho
next term of tho circuit court at Harris
burg. Mr. T. L. Joy, of Mt. Carmel, is io the
city to make disposition of the Three States
office which he sold to Gladden who had
fai!od to make tho paper enough of a suc
cess financially, to be able to meet his
stipulated obligations to Mr. Joy. Mr.
Gladden thought he had sold tho office to
Messrs. Parker . & Co. and
male announcement to that tf
fict in the last issue of his paper;
but subsequent events seem to prove that
he wag mistaken; that the sale had not been
concluded when the publication was made,
itnd that Messrs. Parker & Co., tfter ma
turer deliberation, concluded not to pur
chusu the office. But it appears that upon
this point there is not the unity of
thought uncessary to a pefect understand
ing. Mr. GItdden iosists that the Site wis
complete, aud that M'.ws. Parker & Co.
therefore owe him $75, the stipulated
price of the good will and patronage ot the
paper; Messrs. Parker & Co. deny th tf the
sale was made and that they owe Gladdeu
anything. Eich party being fiiin iu its
opinion, the law alone enn decide the mat
ters at issue, and yesterdty Mr. Gladdi-0
invoked tho aid of the lw by briugiu
suit before Jm'ico R tbinson aguiut
Messrs. Pirkt-r & Co., to recover from them

who thoroughly understands the bueiness of
the piece. There i much in the plot to
make it entertaining, and with the several
revisions which have taken place, and the
introduction of several new characters,
with some intelligent change of tho original
text, the d-ama ns performed by the "Rial
Ideal, Uncle Tom's Combination" may be
considered one of the most attractive vu
tho road. The company was orgauiz.'d
with a view of makiug stands in the hrger

class. Certain scemo and mechanical ef
fects carried by tho company enable an
elaborate realistic presentation of the cele
brated floating ice sceue, Eiizi escaping in
to Canada with tho fierce bloodhounds in

as to be startling. The prices of admission to

KEEPING THEIR MEMORIES
I never could understand why great am
bitions, pretty fancies and gleader purses
should ever go together, for they aro at
warfare with each other at all times. What
good are philanthropic plans for humanity,
what good generosity, without something
to give? And, I had almost said, what
good is wealth without generosity!
These thoughts came to me while think
ing of a noble deed somu ono is going to
perform. A go;d act that I have done so
ofttn in imagination, that I almost look to
see the result. A generous little woman
with ambi'ion (and fortunately money too)
is to bless our city w ith a handsome library
building; aud, io so doing, oroct a perpet

the wishes of her late husband who was cut
off from lifo too suddenly to enjoy the

glad to know that, while Mrs. S.ifford gives
for tho pie isuro of giving, yet will alio re
ceive the gratitude of all reflecting citizens.
And, of many who have not yet learneo to
lisp her name. I am go glad, and so proud
of her unselfish hoirtaud good judgment.
She is one of tho few who have a proper es
timate of riches; she is competent to dis
tribute them herself, and not leave them all
in tho hands of others. Sho is a true pub
lic benefactress; aud I often wonder that
sho stands alone in that light iu Cairo. I
wonder that other citizens do not ttko ad
vantage of their surplus moans to benefit
the public. That they do not build insti
tutions of learning, scloncc, art, hygiuno or
anything etso botieflcial their tastes sttg

IIOW TO GET (ID )1) COUNTKY
The stato of Illinois is out "of debt and
has a surplus revenue. The tax levied for
state purposes is of insignificant propor
tions. Io addition thereto thuiu ia a p r
maneut revenue from the Illinois Central
railroad which amounts to about $500,
000 a year. The nato is in a position to
give some material encouragement fur the
construction of ood roa la, which uro of
the most urgent necessity to tha agricultural
population. Tho wiy to proceed in this
matter i a follows: "Let the legislature
vote to set aaide the nnnual revenue of
$100,000 from tho Illinois Central railroad
as a road fund, to bo distribute ! pro rata
among the various counties for tile-drain-ing
their roads, on conditiou that each
county shall vote for tint purpose at least
as much more us it shall receive from tho
slate. We would except from this uid the
City of Chicago, un 1 ivo to Cook county
only tho proportion to which its population
outsido outside of thu city shall entitle it.
It can scarcely I o doubted that every
county in tho statu will bo eager to accept
guch aid under tho conditions named. The
distribution of tho fund would givo about
$1 lor every voter in tho state, which would
be doubled by the local contribution. A
ooiioty of 90,000 Inhabitants could thus ac
quire an anii;i:il road fund of $20,000, and
all otlnrs in proportion. Tho county
board should bo interested with the collec
tion and disbursement of the inouoy, under
the sole condition that It should be used
for laying tile-drains according to the most
approved plana on tho Hues established by

11,000,000 throughout tho state in this man

Tho result of the policy sugyisted would
bo as follows: (1) There would be six
months more of good wheeling co tho
couutry roads thau thre is now. which
would put thousan Is of dollars a year into
the pockets of the farmer, ar.d at the same
time faniliate and promote the entire busi

line of tho roa is would ba betiedtfe 1 to
somo extent by the roid t ! running
ahngside their fences; the land fronting
the Mads au 1 mining back from ."50 to 100
feet would be found to yield tw ire asnnn h
a those portions of thn farm which should
have b i tiling. (3) The ncell-ut result
