and farmers should apply at once at the

A little boy named Loud, living in
Metropolis, was walking down a populous
street in Paducah Monday, was met by a
negro named Jerre Miles, tempted by the
boy's watch and chain, who, under the
proteose of leading him to a hotel, took
him to a lonely part of the town
and shoved him into a well. The boy, in
falling, caught trie negro and pulled him
down also. His cries for help were heard
by officers and 'citizens, who came in time
to see the negro hanging on to the side of
tho wall, and with his foot shoving the boy
under the water. Both were drawn out
and when the boy regained consciousness
ho told of the negrou's devilish act. Tho
latter had loft the neighborhood, but was
hunted up, arrested, and barely escaped
being hung by a mob. Loud Is but about
sixteen years old.
A day or two ago General Harris and

proposes to build and form a new line of

coasts. They were on their way south to

of tho new line that remains to be built
and to hold a meeting of the principal
stock-holders. Tho rood will start ir In
ian territory, run clear through tho state of
Missouri, cross the Mississippi rivers'. Cot

and Gun, Harris said the road would cer

Yesterday again the colored school was
open as usual, with teachers all at their
posts, the rooms all warm rind dry, and
seats nearly all empty. The only really
weighty reason Elder Rix has been able to
offer for this stubborn refusal of "hii peo
ple" to avail themselves of the educational
facilities so magnanimously provided by
the whito tax-payers f thss county, is that
there is no piano in the colored school.
The Bchool board ought to loose no time in
making good this important omission. The
"common whito trash" in the Hili school
have a piano, for which they paid with
money obtained from exhibitions given by
the scholars. In their case it would have
been a palpable violation of tho school law
to have paid for a piano
out of the general school fund.
But in the opinions of "the colored
man and a brother," you know, such as
Bishop Rix : and "his people," who have
been objects of special legislation for a
number of years, until, in their beclouded
judgments, all things must exist and move
with reference only to their effect upon
themselves in the opinions of those, legal
restrictions upon themselves don't count,
and legal privileges count double. .But
Bishop Rix has thrown out a bint to the
board, which if taken, will very probably
load to a satisfactory solution of the colored
school problem. Bishop Rix is not a par
agon of literary entertainments, but he has
a musical bouI, and he knows that the
youth ot "his people" have souls of a simi
lar sort, longing for communion with the
muses. If tho board will engage a min
Btrel with a banjo this morniug at 9 o'clock
and have him take a position in the colored
school and go through the difficult per
formance of such musical masterpieces as
"Walk In do Middle ub de Rjad," "B ib
Down fo' do Lawd is a Comin," "Gib Dese
Chillun Room," "Den Swim on fo' Glory,
Chillun," "Dar'll be Raizors a Flyin' in de
Are," etc., etc., we feel safe in predicting
that within half an hour the school would
be crowded with big children and little
children, and if the innovation were per
sintedi n for a day or two,there would be no
lunger any cause to complain ot non-attend
The St. Louis Railway Register of the
3d has tho following answer to stories cir
culated by the cnomies of the Wabash
against that company: It is safe to say
positively that the unfavorable reports of
late bo industriously circulated concerning
the Wabash. St. Louis & Pacific have no
other foundation than the malice or imagi
nation of those who have fathered them.
The Wabash will remain during the com
ing year under-the same management as
heretofore. The officers who have so skill
fully guided it in the poet will continue in
charge. The company earned last year
more than a million more, net, than it did
in 1881. It will, beyond question, cam a
million and a half more in the first 6 months
ot this year, and still more in the last 6
months, than during tho corresponding
periods of 1882. This is so, because there
is more traffic this year to be handled, and
rates are adhered to. Labt year, up to May,
there was no business and no rates. The
company can buy all it wants to, and on
the most favorable terms. Dealers are
anxious to sell it upon the longest time.
Already heavy purchases of steel rails and
materials have been made, and during this
year an unusual amount of work will be
done on the track, and extensive additions
niado to the equipment.
The value of au article is almost always
indicated by its price, and for years the
people were content to pay f 3 for a genuine
Livormore Slylographic pen, and the same
pens are yet doing good service. The suc
cess of these pens led unscrupulous persons
to get up inferior imitations, which they
offered at such low prices that many per
sons, not understanding the difference were
induced to buy them. The Livermore
company therefore cut down the price of
their short plain pens to $2, and short gold
mounted to $2.50 each, to give everybody
a chance to have the best article of the
kind. You can buy thorn for that money
by remitting the amount to Lewis E. Dun
lap, Manager Stylograph ic Pen Co., 290
Washington street, Boston; the pen, to
gether with a package of superior ink, will
be sent by return mail, and the money
will be at once refunded if they do not
prove to be perfect and satisfactory in every
respect. The Stylographic Pen Co., who
manufacture the Livermore pen, is the
largest concern of the kind in the world,
with branches at New York, Chicago and
London, Eng. The Livermoro Stylographic
pen is a pencil which writes ink, never
needs sharpening and never wears out, and
has been adopted by over 500,000 knights
of the quill in this county and abroad

been making great improvement ia their

object in view of co operating with tho

reading rooms for the use of young men.
Rev. B. Y. George introduced Mr. F. M.
Crane, who has been in our city the past
two months working under direction of tho

staled the object of his mission in this city
to be the organization of young men in a

of reaching railroad men and others, who
by their occupation are often deprived of
