morning, Judge D. J. Baker presiding. A
full panel of jurymen was not obtained

the afternoon tho criminal docket was ta

Joseph Stevens, a negro indicted for burj

His bondsmen are W. C. Mulkey, Jno. Ty

less troublesome in the city tm )t wag in
former years. Ho has not been compelled
to call on citizens more than once for a set

plenty with all of them, business men es
pecially. The amount he is expected to
account for is $101,000, and so far tho col
lections have reached about $05,000. In
tho country collections are not ' to easy,
probably because of the losses sustained in
tho lato floods.
-Under date of yesterday Mr. George
ing between one Fox and a colored man, in
which the former cut at the latter but for
tunatoly only ripped his clothes. Fox had
boon watchman at the oil factory, but was
discharged Saturday and the colored man
was hired in his place. It soems that Fox
thought the negro procured tho change by
unfair means and last evening went to see
him about it. A quarrel ensued and Fox
drew a pocket knlfo as stated and, making
a drive at tho negro's side, cut a long rent
in his vest. There will probably be a trial
about the matter to-day,

hauling offal from his saw mills and box
factory, and spreading it over the strcot. In
tho worst places pieces of wood were first
laid down and sawdmt afterwards to the
depth of about a foot. The pavement is
firm, durable and costs the city nothing.

A white man and a negro had a bad
fight yesterday forenoon, at the corner of
Sixth street and Ohin levee, in which tho
latter was tho victor, getting tho other fel
low down and pounding thunder out of him
before others interfered and parted the
pugilists. The white man's name was
Gus Burns; the negro accused him of hav
ing attempted to gain forcible entrance to
tho shop of Mr. Smith Torrence and report
ed the facts to Chief Myers. Sunday tbe
chief arrested Burns, but finding upon in-
vestigation, that the evidence against the
fellow was not very strong, released him
with the injunction to leave town. But in
stead of leaving, or more probably prepara
tory to leaving, Burns bunted for the negro
who had informed against him, with the in
tention of giving him a good thrashing. He
found the negro and was thrashed. Officer
Mahanny arrested the negro for fighting,
upon tbe complaint of Burns, and Chief
Myers, knowing Burns to be a penitentiary
convict and a bad man to have about the
city, arrested him, bad him fined under the
vagrant act by Magistrate Comings and
sent out of town under a stay of execution.

DIXON SPRINGS. '
This beautiful refuge from summer beat,
dust and mosquitoes, is now open
for the season. Three never-failing
Springs of coldest water whose medical
qualities have Btood the test of
more than sixty years continual use, the
waters of each of a different kind, serve a
different purpose in bringing strength to
the feeble and health to the sick. These
Springs are in a mountain valley whose
sides are of perpendicular cliffy a hundred
feet high, jutting out here and there in
fantastic chapes resembling beasts and birds.
The woodland paths are a continual temp
tation to long and delightful rambles of
which one forgets to become weary.
AN AllTIVICIAL LAKE

to tho natural sceuery, bounded on one sido
by cliffs at whoso baso tho water reaches a
depth of ten to fifteen feet and tho other is
a gradual slopo from the hills, tho whole
covering several acres of ground.
"No. 1" the "Iron Spring"has properties
that aro unsurpassed as a tonic and is almost
a specific for malaria.
'No. 2" the"Magncsia,"iss never-failing
remedy for dyspepsia, and livor or kidney
troubles, and tho 4,Alum Spring" does
the beBt service as a wash for eruptions or
disease of the skin.
A new bath , house is by no means the
least among the latest additions.
The cottages have been thoroughly ronova-
tod; the beds are furuiehed with mattresses
and springs; new cottages have been built;
tho dining-room is large and airy and tho
kitchen is in charge of a first clas steam
boat cook all, for tho summer, at $8.00 por
