It is reported here by a young man
who recently returned from a three mouth's

Mayfleld, tho slayer of Captain James
Biggs, is living in that city and has been
there for several months. Au indictment
is pending against him here, but it is doubt
ful if he would be convicted if tried; and as
he is not a desirable citizen it may be sis
well to let him remain away.
Some days ago two negroes at Beech
Ridge, named "Bill" Wilkins and Jno. Ed
wards, had a row in which fists were und
vigorously and with bloody effect. The
cause of the fuss was, that one had called
the other a hog-thief, which the latter re
sented, probably becauso it implied too
close a relationship with a certain colored
devino of this city. Yesterday Officer
Greenwall, of Hodges Park, brought both
pugilists down here and Magistrate Comings
fined each of them five doIUrs and costs.
Yestcrdey evening Mr. J. M. O'Neall,
of Paducah, came down for the purpose ot
establishing here a branch of the Junior
Order of Mutual Friends, a new insurance
organization of which he is supreme coun
cilor. The order proposes to insure only
persons under age and pay them the
amount insured for when they become of
age, or at the expiration of any other speci
fied time. It now has branch organizations
in ten states and is growing rapidly. Dr.
J. S. Petrie and Mr. D. F. King are the
local agents here and have succeeded in ob
taining quite a number of members already.
A negress named Alice Anderson was
brought before Magistrate Comings yester
day, charged with stealing from a negro
named Jackson Krise, a ten-dollar gold

court discharged defendant and told com

went on a "bust" and lay down drunk in a
den of ill-repute, he had no business to ex
pect to get out again with any money left
in his clothed, and lees business to expect
that the court would be moved to burden
the county with the expense of boarding

these will be the most proficient of the

-Tho newsociil and literary club recent
ly organized by a number of young people
at the residence of Mr. Parsons, is having
very interesting meetings every week, at
which music, song, dancing and literary
exercises of a high order prevail. At the
last meeting, which occurrod Tuesday
night, Miss Rida Corliss and Prof. Storer
produced a beautiful piano and clarionet
solo; Miss Maud Rittcnhouse read an inter
esting selection in a captivating manner;
Miss Gordon sang "The Sniintt Time":
Messrs. Crowell and Metcalf, "The Fisher
man," and Mr. W. F. McDowell delivered
a humorous address in conclusion. After
this a dance was had in which nearly all
participated. A contributor of last even
ing's Argus grows enthusiastic in an ac
count of the mooting and the enthusiasm
was evidently justified. The society seems
now to be flourishing and it is to bo hoped
that it will continue to do so always.
Tho Illinois department of agriculture
.1.. L ..(-..! X- a. ,
aunusuut circular no. wi, giving some
valuablo statistics concerning farm products
in 1882. As to the state of farm products
in Alexander county it says: "Corn is of
good quality and the yield per aero is much
above'the average for the past six years.
Tho late seeding of wheat is five percent,
largor than last year, and tho condition is
up to an average for the season. Rye U
nearly up to aa average iu condition, and
tho acreage much larger than last year.
The late crop of Irish potatoes is of good
quality, and the yield per acre much above
an average. Farm animals are healthy,
and in good condition. The weather dur
ing the fall aud winter has bcon favorable
for farm work. The supply of fat hogs is
quite limited ; but few cattle ready for mar
ket. The number of fat sheep is almost as
large us at same date last year. The far
mers of this county are giving considerable
attention to tile and surface drainage.
Sonic Heref'oid and Jersey cattle have re
cently been introduced into the county. A
factory for making sorghum sugar and
syrup was built in 1882, near Hodges
Park, in this county."
Tuesday night a man and woman
called at police headquarters aud told Chief
Meyers that they were in search of a run
away young .man and woman who had ar
rived hero on the steamer Fowler that af
ternoon. The chief gave the matter into
the hands of the officers with instructions,
and within a few hours the eloping couple
were at the headquarters, awaiting identifi
cation by their pursurei. The young girl's
niine wus Sarah Gardner and the man's was
W. H. Grimes. The former was about nine'
teen years of age and tollerably good-look
ing. Both are from Ballard couuty, Ky.,
and were bound for wedlock, wherever that
might b. But there was a serious stuiubj
ling block in the way, in the form of a liv
ing wife and two children of the despica
ble wretch who would have played the worse
half iti this escapade. He ran away from
his home at Kelly Springs, Ballard county,
alter hiving sold the only bed there was in
the home, taking the proceeds with him,
and left his family in destitute circumstan
ces. Tho foolish young girl was quite in
fatuated with the miscreant and would
have gone with him in spite ot the will of
her mother and uncle; but the latter's
threat to give Grimes a drubbing if he per
sisted iu his purpose, induced that young
man to withdraw and the pursueing party
left for up the road, taking their bagged
but unwilling game with them. Whether
Grimes repented and returned to tho bosom
of the family he had so grievously wronged,
is not known, but it is hardly probable
that a thing witii soul so small could ex
hibit courage and conscience enough to be
guilty of so manly an act. Grimes formerly
lived in New Columbus, Ills.
Paducah is about to take desperate
and, it would seem to one up in a tree ut
this distance, a rather severe and unwarran
ted method of ridding itself of the small
pox. The News of Tuosdiy says: "It 19
learned this afternoon from Mayor Reed,
that he, this morning, telegraphed the con
dition of affairs on the "Acre'' to General
Echols, vice-president ot theC. O. & S. W.
R. R. company, owners of the property,
and asked their permission to burn down
the delectable(!)dens thereon, in which the
small-pox has so frequently appeared for
the past two or three weeks. The utter
worthlessness of the buildings is known to
Gen. Echols, and this afternoon he prompt
ly answered that Mayor Rued could do with
the property as he thought best for the
city's welfare. As Mayor Reed had during
the dy secured the permission of those
owning adjoining property to fire the houses
alluded to, with the precautionary measure
of having the fire engine and firemen pres
ent, his honor has decided to do with tbe
buildings as ho desires as soon as be can
have them vacated by the few families oc
cupying them. The people may, therefore,
look for a fire in tho direction or the "Acre"
most any time this evening or to-morrow
and ueed experience no alarm therefrom."
Information brought down by the Fow
ler yesterday afternoon was to the effect
that the Paducah council had hold a spe
cial meeting Tuesday evening and had or
dered the destruction of tho buildings on
tho "Acre." The buildings compriso about
fifty little shanties, occupied mostly by
colored people something after the man
ner of our "barracks." It is considered the
disreputable part of the town, partly, no
doubt, because the poverty of the town iB
concentrate! there. The destruction of
these houses is considered an easy way, not
only of exterminating the plague, but of
ridding the city of a very undesirable por
tion of its inhabitants. The end is all
right enough, but it cau hardly be . said to
justify the means. We are under the im
pression that Mayor Thistlowood and Chief
Myers, of this city, could give tho Paducah
authorities Bomo valuable advice as to the
best method for fighting small-pox, advice
that would, if acted upon, relievo Paducah
of tho scourge without its resorting to bucIi
seemingly rash moans aa that proposed.
During the pust twenty years congress
has been very liberal in giving aid to great
railroad lines upon tho ground that thereby
the facilities tor transportations would be
increased and tho people benefited. It has
thus granted to the railroad companies
hundreds of millions of acres of land, worth
THOUSANDS AND MILLIONS of dollars. TIlO
sum soems immcuso, nevertheless our
statement is correct. Such grants have
been generally made at the request of oast
ern railroad builders. But whon the great
west asKS a lew minions oi dollars to con
tinue the improvement of the Mississippi
and Ohio rivers our two great natural
channels of transportation then congress
grows ooglegent and falls to give the aid
which the people of tbe west bavo demand

contract for grading the Mail from Hutton

they will build a line parrailel with it to

the manager, and commands that all orders
from Mr. Miller as such assietant shnll bo
