About 8 o'clock last night a white man
iu a skiff was drawn by the current under
a barge lyin? the wharfboat No. 2 and
drowned. His cries for help were beard
and as soon as possible lines were thrown
to him ; but too late to save him. Who he
was is not known and nothing to indentify
him was found.
Messrs. Charles Hamilton, G. W.
Smith and Louis Enos, of the St. Louis and

and our people will at least get back in

Report came here a day or two ago
that the store of Mr. Thomas Tarr, at Wolfe

away and would be, unless means were
promptly taken to prevent it. The bank

The editor of the American Farmer
describes a telephone, a wire 290 jards
looc, that he countructed at a cost of 45
cents. All that is required is a wire and
two cigar boxes. Select your boxes and
nvike holes about half an k.ch in diameter
in the center of the bottom of each, and
then place one in each of the houses you
wish to connect; then get live pounds of
common iron stove-pipe w ire, make a loop
at one end, and put it through the hole in
your cigar box, and fasten it with a nail;
then draw it tight to the other box, sup
porting it when necessary with a stout cord.
You can easily run your line into the house
by boring a hole in the glass. Support
your boxes with slats nailed acroej the
window, and your telephone is complete.

Cairo has demonstrated now beyond
the possibility of doubt, that she has with
in herself the ability to overcome her most
powerful enemy the annual flood in the two
great rivers converging here. She has twice
now come out victorious in a flight with an
adversary against which much greater cit
ies failed utterly. The first attack wa the
fierciest then known and the victory was
barely won; the second was made with still
stronger force and was more protracted,
but the victory for Cairo was only the more
easy and complete. The eyes of tho coun
try have been upon Cairo; some of them I
jealous eyes, beaming with malice and be
traying a strong hope that Cairo might be
less fortunate than she has been. This hope
has found expression in words in wild
pictures of her dangerous position, and con
fident predictions of her certain, speedy, to
tal destruction. But she has emerged from
the fight with flying colors, intact, braver,
stronger, more hopeful and certain of con
tinued prosperity and ultimate groatuess,
than she has ever been before, and her bril
liant prospects can now no longer bo regard
ed with a sneer, or be entirely ignored as St.
Louis and Chicago have been pleased to do
until now. The improvement of tho Mis
sissippi rivm, in accordance with the plans
of the river commission, will produce a
channel thirty-three feet deep from Cairo
down to New Orleans, and 'will, iu time,
make Cairo one of the principal maritime
cities iu (he country, not to say iu tbo
world. This improvement is to bo contin
ued, for even the committee appointed at the
iustigution ot the cuemies of tbo commis
sion, almost with the open underBtssdiug
that its repoit was to condemn tho commis
sion's work, has been converted by its in
vestigation and reccommends, as far as it
dares, that the work bo continued. But
while this important work is being done in
cedoutially for Cairo by tho government,
tho people of Cairo will not be idle. Al
though Cairo's levees stood firm against the
late flood, they will be increased In size all
around to fifty-five feet aliovo low water
mark, and three foot above the highest
water mark ever reached. The preliminary
preparations for beginning this important
work are already made and active opera
lions will begin In a few weeks. The few
unflllod streets will be raised, and the low
lots filled up, to t point boyond the reach
of slpe water; and to persons who are well
informed and competent to judge; ths pre
diction that, in a comparatively few years,
Cairo will be one of most socure, prettiest
livliest and greatest cities on tho rivers will
not seem in the least unreasonable,
By a writ of habeas corpus the cssu of
young R. W. Willis, of Metropolis, for kill
ing a young boy named Whitman, was
brought iuto this county and tbo prelimi
nary examination was bold before Judge
Baker who convened circuit court in tho
office of County Clerk Ilumm yesterday af
ternoon. The party consisted of defendant
and his father, Col. I. C. Willis, Judge R.
W. McCartney, Mr. Courtney, Judge W. H.
Green, Stato's Attorney B. O. Jones, of Mas
sac comity and about half a dozen witness
es. Btsideg these a number of spec
tators were present and the room wss
nearly full. Defendant is a young man of
about twenty years, rather heavy set and
somewhat dissipated in appearance, though
he showed some traces of mental suffering,
presumably because of the terrible deed
wnicn ne nan committed while in a state
of intoxication. Ho was brought here un
der a charge ot murder for which he had
been placed under a bond by the coroner of

were examined briefly. Their testimony
agreed on the main points, and these were,
in substance, that young Willis, in a drunk
en condition, came into a small store room,
talking boisterously sod flourishing a pis-
tol ; that the young boy, Whitman, came in
afterwards and stood near Willis; that no
words ps;d between Willis and the b iy ;
that the pistol was discharged while Willis
whs turned away lrm the bn; thf.t il.c
ball passed through the boy'a head under

room after the shit and made no clTm! l.
escape. I Me court was i.f the opinion thai
the charge of murder was nut jtijtificd in

LONG FELLOWS NATAL DAY.
The birthday of Longfellow, America's
favorite pott, was very appropriste'y and
very interestingly celebrated at the high
school yesterday afb rnoon. The celebra
tion was gottou up by the Longfellow so
ciety, an organization of the scholars in the
igh school room, and, as a whole, would
ave done credit to much older heads than
those engaged in it. A good sized au ii
ence ot ladies and gentlemen was present,
filling the room to the extent of its soating
capacity. The exercises began about 2
'clock and continued till nearly half-past
four, but so interesting were they that the
udience seemed loath to go even after the
motion to adjourn bad been duly carried
and so declared by the president, Mastet
The programme was lengthy, but varied,
comprising readings, declamations, recita-
ions, debates, essays and songs. Among
the most interesting features of the exer
cises were the literary analysis of the poem
"Keramos" and the discussion of "L'ng-
fellow's life, works and genius." In the
first Misses Mary Zimmerman, Maggie
Smith, Addie Christman, Lena Zimmer
man, Nellie Need and Nellie Fisher, and
Master T. W. Halliday took part; and in
the second Misses Mary Zimmerman, Mag
gie Smith, Addie Chrietman, Lena Zim

Nellie Fisher, Mamie Lentz, Laura Wal-
bridge, Jeannette Cherry, and Masters Lee

pants. All acquitted themselves creditably
and some displayed talents of a higher or
