The rain of last night was nesded, not
only in the city to lay the dust, but in the

Tho whole time of the circuit court
yesterday was taken up in tho examination
of wltueases for the dofonse in the Neu
nineer damage case. The mattor at issue is
the value of the fixtures of the Mound
City brewery. Defendants, Messrs. Scheu
lord; Lutz,had tented the brewery from Mrs
Neuningor; and complainant alleges that
defendants took away and sold much of the
machinery, without her knowledge or con
sent and without paying her for it. Com
plainant now sues for damages to tho ex
tent of the value of such machinery and of
injury done to the brewery by reason of bo

upon which an application for a now trial
was well founded and granted.

The revival meeting at the Baptist
church last night was again largely attend

The Harper high license bill, making
the minimum price of license to sell alco
holic liquors $500 and to sell beer alone
$150, was ordered to a third reading in the
Illinois huse on Wednesday with the as
sistance of five or six democrats. Mr.
I Linegar expressed the opinion during his
visit home last Sunday, that the bill would
not pass a third reading. Mr. Llncgar is a
power in the house and is certainly com
petent to judge.
Mrs. Mollie Pierce who was married to
Mr. Louis Benncficld by Justice Robinson
Wednesday, had, not an hour before this
wedding, been allowed a decree of divorce
from Mr. Madison Pierce by Judge Biker.
Frrnn the court room, with certificate ot di
vorce in hand, she went to the county
clerk's office, procured a license to marry
Mr. Bennefitld, and from thence to the jus
tice to have the knot tied. Business is said
to be business, but with some people mar
riage is business, too.
"Glengary," the home of Capt. Sproat
near Columbus, Ky., hus become famous
fir the size and quality of its strawberries.
No such berries are produced anywhere in
the country, and no others will bring such
prices as these command in the St. Louis
and Chicago markets. A sample box was
received yesterday at The Bulletin office
with compliments of Mrs. Cushman great,
ripe, red fellows lying in their box looking
nearer tho size of ordinary peaches than
strawberries, they wore the admiration of
all who saw or tasted them.
Governor Hamilton has issued a proc
lamation calling upon the people of Illinois
"to observe Wednesday, May DO instant, bb
Memorial Day, and requests them on that
day to lay aside their ordinary business
pursuits, and, joining together in thmr sev
eral localities, celebrate the day in the truo
spirit which suggested tho beautiful cus
tom, thus renewing in the hearts of nil a
deep HeiiHii ot our obligation to the sleeping
heroes, and recalling for the benefit of tho
present and rising generations the impres
sive leBHons of tho memorable struggle for
liberty and union which claimed the sacri
fice of so many noble lives."
Tho following coinparativo statement
of the gross earnings of some of tho roads
centring here, duiing April, 18M2 and 1883.
and during tho first throe m mtlis in tho

sheets of the Commercial and Financial
Chronicle : "Gross earnings in the month of

Somo idea may be gained of the enor
mity ot Centralia's strawberry crop from
the fact that a Cobdon firm has received an
order from Centralia for 33,000 ready-
made and filled crates for the growers of
that vicinity. This order will alone make
about 23 car loads of crates, or about 40
car loads of berries when filled. Tho Cen
tralia berries are noted for their superior
quality and generally bring top prices.
There is a growing evidence that the straw
berry la to lead all other Southern Illinois
fruits in extent of planting and profitable
ness. The funeral of the late George R. Lentz
yesterday ,was one of the most imposing
there hss been in the city. A short service
watjheld over the remains at the residence,
where many friends had gathered, and then
the cortege moved toward the train at the
foot of Fourteenth street. The Knights of
Honor attended in a body and besides
hundreds of people on foot, fifteen buggies
and carriages followed the hearse to the
train. Three coaches took the remains and
followers to Villa Ridge, where the last
rites were solemny performed and all that
was visible of a man who left not an enemy
behind was put to rest.
The latest news from Springfield, con
cerning Mr. Linegar's street filling bill,
houso bill No. 417, is to this effect: "House
bill 417 was read a third time. This bill
provides for dividing cities and villags sub
ject to overflow and inundation into im
provement districts, and to provide ways
and means to raise the streets and blocks
above the line of overflow. Senator Ho
gan, rep., of Pulaski, explained that the
bill only applied to Cairo, and possibly
Mound City, and he hoped every seoitor
would vote for it, as the people thore were
unanimously in favor of it, and it has the
emergency clause. It passed--3C to 1."
Alderman McHalo and Coroner Fitz
gerald ran a foot race yesterday afteruoon,
from the court house to Col. Taylor's office.
The corpulent coroner was a little tricky;
he started off ahead of time and wc
twenty-five feet ahead of the alderman
when the letter started and left him away
behind before half the distance was run.
At this juncture the coroner une up the
race in disgust and puffing like a porpoise.
The victorious alderman, who was good for
another mile, assisted the panting coroner
back to his quarters at the court bouse and
helped to rub him down and bath his
heated brow with ice water. The alder
man took the biscu it.
Any one taking a stroll up or down
Commercial avenue between Tenth and
Sixth streets, and taking a critical note of
the houses, will be struck with the bad ef
fect the many old wooden awnings have
upon the general looks of th street. There
are some, constructed more after the man
ner of porches, that look well enough, and
these are not to be classed with the black
ened, tumble-down old barracks that hang
over the fnnts of some otherwise respecta
ble looking business houses. On the west
side of the avenue between Sixth and
Seventh streets, these old wrecks have all
been torn away and neat canvas awnings
upon gas pipe frames substituted for them.
While this is a very decided improvement
Id itself the contrast between it and other
parts of the street renders said other parts
only the more offensive. The improvement
outrht to be extended; the old wooden
wrecks should all be exchanged tor the
sc&llopped, bright-colored canvas shades
that may be raised or lowered as' occasion
may require and that is an ornament rather
than a deformity. An ordinance requiring
this change to be made would, if enforced,
do much toward convincing people that
their houses would be improved by the
change, and toward bringing about the im
The attention of people on Ohio levee
and Commercial avenue was attracted on
Wednesday by a dozen or more of queer
leople -quoer in language, queer in acts,
queer in everything. They came in on the
Illinois Central train and wandered about
tho streets in an aimless sort of way, look
ing about them as though lost read
ing every sign, stopping to examine a hand
car on the track and asking simple ques
tions about tho most trivial things. They
actod like overgrown children fresh from
Fogyland. The women were all dressed
alike -in plain-colored dresses, plainly
made, with long waists, without a ruffle or
a scrap of trimming to vary tho monoton
ous plainness, hanging loosely, almost
slovenly about 4hcir angular forms. Tho
men ditto, ditto, ditto, ditto, excepting that
they wore linuu ulsters and punts, instead
of dresses. Those people wore Dunkards,
a religious sect of some strength in somo
of the states. They all bold strong to the
doctrine of feet-wash inc. lotting their
beards and hair grow and wearing the
plainest of apparel. They wore bound for
Bismarck Grovo, Kansas, where a great
convocation of the sect is to be held. Any
one who saw the women, if ho cvor enter
tainod a thought unfavorable to laces and
fringes und fur-belows and cordings and
tassels and buttons, and the many other
things that aro made to enhanco tho natural
gmce and attractiveness of the ladies of
Cairo, must certainly have condemned him
self and resolvod never to allow such an
other thought to enter bis mind,
