The rumor that the Cairo division of
the Wabash system will probably revert to
the old Cairo and Vincennes company very
likely has its origin in Carmi, where sever
al rumors unfavorable to the present man
agement have originated. And the reason
for Carmi's evident purpose to defame the
Wabash is, that the Wabash is about to re
move its yards from there to Mt.
Carmcl, and will perhaps also remove its
Carmi machine shops to the same point.
A force of men began the work of laying
tracks at Mt. Carmcl last Wednesday. The
reasons of the removal of the yards from
Carmi are, that the company baa not and
cannot get sufficient room there, and also
that Mt. Carmel is more centrally situated
on the line and affords much better facili
ties in various ways than Carmi does, for
the handling of freight and doing other
business. Those who are in a position to
know deny that there is any good reason
for the report above referred to,

pose is destiued soon to figure prominent
ly in the manufacture of paper. New ma
terials for tho manufacture ot paper are
constantly being discovered. It is stated
a very good paper ia now manufactured in
Naples in an exceedingly primitive way
from the bark of a kind of daphne. Tho
fresh bark is ground between stones into a
very fine pulp, and as much as is required
fyr a sheet is thrown into a caldron con
taining boiling water. The pulp spreads
in an equal Ityer over the water and is
then taken out. In many parts of Sweden
there are enormous quantities of bleached
mosses which grew many ages ago, A
manufactory of paper from this material
hits begun operations at Jonkoping, and is
said to be turning out a product of excel
lent quality. The young cotton wood is said
by those who know to be just as available
for wrapping-paper and some day will be
in demand for that purpose.
Inquiry about the two boys, or young
men, who, it is believed, were drowned at
this point about ten days ago continues to

to Constables Hogan and Sheehan, from
Mr. A. B. Pickett, secretary of tho police
department at Memphis, enclosing a tele
gram of the drowning of the two boys, pub
lished in a Cincinnati paper, and writing
as follows: "Last Monday, the 12th of
March, Eddie Saltmarsh a youth of 15 years
was enticed away from his home here by a
boy gome years older named Harry Lang
treo, and it is supposed they left on the
Ste. Genevieve. Saltmarsh is tall for his
age. awkard, large feet, black hair, large
expressive eyes, and a very noticable scar
on his neck directly under his right jaw;
wore suit of dark cassimere mixed with
blue. Langtreo is tall and slim, small head
and "knowing" face, dark hair and eyes;
wore new suit of dark goods mingled with
w hite. He worked about the theatre here,
and was a pool player and generally rapid
youth. I eucloso a clipping from the Cin
cinnati Tiroes-Star. Please investigate it

if it is probable the boys are the same I
Spring has now fairly opened and it is
ikely that henceforth, for several weeks or
months, we will have steady weather, and
everything seems to be in a favorable con
dition for agrarian improvements of all
kinds. There seems therefore to be no
mger any good reason for delay on the
part of the Wabash company, in beginning
active work onthe contemplated chango in
its Commercial aveuue business. The com
pany has promised to so extend and im
prove its switching facilities on its Misssis-
sippi right-of-way, as to be able to abate
switching on the lower end of Commercial
avenue entirely, and it promised to do this
as soon as spring weather would permit.
In view of this promise the authorities and
the people have been lenient and patient
with the company, havo al'owed it a lati
tude which, but for this promise, would
probably not have been allowed. The
enmpany baa doubtless duly appreciated
this leniency and patience and has used the
privileges granted modestly, as modestly as
t well could without crippling itself too
much. It has behaved very well indeed
for several weeks back; there has been lit
tle or no switching, few or no cars on the
tracks, in the day time; teamsters havo
had no reason whatever to complain. But
there continues to be complaint from citi
zens of much disturbance by switching at
night, and these complaints will not cease
until the company does all its switching on
the Mississippi side of the city, as it has
promised to do in due time. The time
seems now to havo arrived when tho com
pany can proceed to make its promise good
and it ought to begin operations look
ing to this end. If it will do
this now it will prove to the
people that its promise was not made mere
ly for temporary effect and it will establish
itself firmly in the popular favor; it it neg
lects to do this much longer, there may be
trouble in store for it in the near future.

THE SUBJUGATION OF THE MIS
SISSIPPI. HT ROBERT S. TAYLOR.
Some of the methods of channel improve
ment now in use hive been copied from the
processes of nature just described. When
it is sought to narrow an exclusively wide
channel, permeable screens, made of piles
and interwoven brush or poles, are set on the
bar whero it is desired to form new banks
at intervals of a thousand feet or less. The
water, in flowing through these screens,
loses so much of its velocity that it drops
its sediment very rapidly after passing
them. The effect produced by such struc
tures is sometimes quite remarkable. In
favorable localities a fill of forty feet in
depth has resulted in a single season. At
Horsetail Bar, below 8t. Louis, may be
se?n n area of more than a thousand acres
of hn 1, which has built up from the river
bed to an average depth of twenty-five feet
by too means just described. A mere line
of piles, eight feet apart, will often produce
a heavy doposit below.
These numorous examples have been
cited in order to illustrate and enforce the

proposition staled at tin; outset: that tlie
greatest law of the river's life is t fiat it
shall be forever laden with a burden which
slips from its grasp the instant it loiters by
the wsy. The whole valley is itself the result
and the proof of the existence and the
operaiiou of this law. Thero is not a shov
elful of earth in all its square miles that
has not been dissolved in water, and car
ried by water to the point where its jour
ney ended, for want ot velocity to carrry it
farther. Every grain of sand, every drop
of water, every inch of movement, every
low stage, every hih stage, every flood, is
equally obedient to the satno great law,
Tho engineer who has learned its meaning
well has taken ti e first step toward a suc
cessful solution ol the problem of the river's
improvement. He who ignores or defies it
ptifj himself in the pathway of forces a
irresistible in their operation as the march
of a glacier.
This brings us to the practical question.
Here are so many cubic miles of water per
annum to be conducted to the sea. It is
desired to do it in such manner as to afford
the best possible low-water navigation, and
the least possible high-water inundation.
Shall it be confined in its course to one
channel, or shall it be subdivided or al
lowed to subdivide itself into several?
The excavation of a river-channel is
work, The transportation of sediment is
work. The accomplishment ot either in
volves the expenditure of energy. 80 that
it is but another statement of the bxiiiu
question to say: How will a given quanti
ty of water perform most work in one
concentrated volume, or in subdivisions?
To this inquiry the experience of every
person furnishes ready and true answer. A
gentle rain, falling on the earth's surface,
leaves its lighest vegetable mold undis
turbed. The same quantity of water, de
scending in a waterspout, tears away its
solid hills. The water which trickles over
a field through thousands of infinitesimal
and broken channels, without producing
the leant abrasion of its surface, would, if
concentrated in one volume on the same
surface, plow it deep and wide. There is
nothing else io nature of which it is so lit
eral and familiarly true that "io union
there is strength," as of water. Subdivided
finely enough, it is the morning mist, con
contratod largoly enough, it is nature's
master mechanic, the continent-builder of
Ducks charge everybody with bolng a
"quack," and there are but a few who are
exempt from the gosling accusation. Dr.
Bull's Cough Syrup Is certainly an exo op
tion to tho rulo, as it is no doubt, the great
est remedy offered to a suffering people.
