The Louisville 'Courier Journal of
Monday says, "J as. Bowles a young man
from Cairo, 111., met with a piece of bad
luck yesterday. He had just arrived in the
city from Glasgow, and going into a store,
made some trifling purchase, after which
he put his purse into a pocket with a hole
in it. It dropped out almost at once, he
thinks, but he did not discover his loss un
til some hours afterward, when he found
himself minus the contents, $41.50.

Magistrate Comings, having been for a
number ef days badly under the weather,
played the part of the Arab early yesterday
morning, leaving no address behind. He
went to take a rest somewhere, but where
his own family doesn't even know. His
pulpit was therefore unoccupied yesterday
and no law was dealt out to any one from
there. Justice Robinson had only a single
case of excessive alcoholism, and this was
the extent of the criminal business done in
this end of town yesterday.

While the government is almost beg
ging for workmen to go down to Plum
Point and the emisaries of railroad com
panies are bunting for laborers to build
their roads, it ought to be a criminal
offense for a poor man in good health to lay
about the streets of the city in idleness.
But there are yet a few of this class of fel
lows in the city, principally ot African de
scent fellows half clad and dirty, very
evidently in a long-continued, though nor
mal, condition of irapecuniosity. To enforce
the vagtant act against the lazy pests
would be a kindness both to them and to
Monday night James M. Gregg, of
Metropolis, cousin to Thomas Gregg who
attempted to drown himselt in the fountain
at The Halliday Monday, came down in
response to a telegram from Chief Myers.
But when he arrived he was also intoxica
ted and became disorderly. He was taken
into custody by the officers and jailed, and
while in jail he worked off some of his
frenzy upon the bed clothing in that cell,
tearing some of it into shreds. But yester
day morning he was sober and as docile
and gentlemanly as could be. He paid his
fine and took his counin, the would-bo sui
cide, back to Uarrisburg with him.
Some excitement was created in tho
neighborhood of Eleventh and Walnut
streets yesterday evening, by tho report
that a young negro named Dennis Cotton
had wilfully shot his mother through the
head and fatally wounded her. A visit to
the scene of tho alleged tragedy, a small
cottage just back of the residence of Mr. S.
P. Wheeler, proved that, while tho young
man was fooling with a little twenty-two
calibre five shooter, containing one ball,
tho thing was accidently discharged ami
tho ball struck Mrs. Cotton in tho rig'tt
temple, but glanced off and mado only a
light akin wound.

chief among which is the removal of the

About five o'clock last evening Chief
Myers came upon a young negro named
McFarland, near the corner of Tenth street
and Washington avenue, in the act ot point
ing a cocked and loaded pistol at the face
of a young white fellow. McFarland
caught sight of the chief, dropped his weap
on and made tracks for obscurity toward
Walnut street. A lively chase ensued in
which the chief came out victor and he
turned the young would-be shootist into
the county jail to await the actionof County
Judge Robinson to-day. It seems that the
white boy had offended McFarland in some
way, when the latter requested him to put
up a knife with which he was whittling. The
white boy did so when McFarland at once
whipped out his weapon ready for business.
McFarland is only about fourteen years of
age, but seems to be a fit candidate for
For several days Chief Myers' force of
scavengers have been hard at work in the
upper portion of the city and they have
done some fine work. The streets through
which they have gone, which were former
ly strewn thickly with boot-shafs, tin cans,
rags, paper collars, old hats, sticks ot
wood, barrel hoops and other hoops, now
look as clear as ten-pin alleys. From some
squares curt load after cart load of this
sort of dry rubbish has been hauled away
and dumped into low places in the com
mons and those who live in these neigh
borhoods must be in doubt at times if the
street they live upon now is the same of a
few days a?o, so marked is the change for
the better. But there is still much work
to do and the chief makes a daily round of
tho city only to find new places that need
attention, but he has the work well in
hand and when he is through the city will
probably be in a better sanitary condition
and her streets more free from offensive
matter of every description, than has been
the case for years. But it devolves to a
great extent upon citizens to keep the
streets and their premises in good condition j
all should join with tho authorities in this
effort to keep tho city neat, for if they do
not it will bo but a few weeks or months
when rubbish will again be scattered along
tho streets and alleys as before and the
work so far done will have been almost in

A smaller-mouth beau that week.
There ought to bo some effort made to
celebrate the coming 4th of July in this
city. Some attraction ought to be provided
by some person or collection of persons,
that would cot only keep citizens at home
but caut-c others to come hero and be enter
tained. There is enough patriotism in
Cairo to get up a first-class celebration; it
needs only to bo aroused. As in years
gone by, so now, the business men of Cairo
would contribute liberally toward defray
ing the uxenses of a grand turnout and
many ot them would doubtless take an
active part in making tho affair a success.
The city council could also, lurid somo assis
tance in the n.atter, by erecting that ampho
theatre in St. Mary's Park, spoken ot by
Mayor Halliday in his inaugural address, (0
that the people could be better accommo
dated there. It ought to be a matter of
business with every merchant, to draw to
this city all his outside customers once
every year and entertain them; to bring
strangers to the city and cultivate their ac
quaintance mil friendship. Ia this way
business revives and expands, and the
commerce of cities Is built up, Even a pro
diglous effort would do much good in at
tracting tho attention of our neighbors
towards us, though they might not oome to
onjoy tho pleasures provided for them. An
effort ought to bo made, and it ought to be
mado by tho lire companlos and Mystic
Krew combined, ao that the groat and var
ied work may lio distributed among a
large number of men and not rest too heav
ily upon a few. We hope these oruanizK-

A New Oopper-Zino Alloy.
Engineering says that Mr. Alexander
Dick has succeeded in producing a now
oopper-'ino alloy which exhibits charac
teristics as essentially superior to brims
as those of bronze nro to gun metal.
Tho advantages claimed for tho new al
loy.whloh has boon nnmed "delta metal,"
are groat strength and toughness, and a
capacity for being rolled, forged, and
drawn. It can bo made as hard as mild
steel, and when melted Is very liquid,
producing sound castings of cIohu lino
grain. The color can bo variod from
that of yellow brass to rich gun metal;
tho surface takes a lino polish, and when
exposed to the air tarnishes less than
brass. These latter characteristics will
meet with ready appreciation for cabinet
work, harness fitting, etc. The metal
w hen cast In sund has a breaking strain
of 21 tQ 22 tons per wpiaro inch; when
rolled or forged hot into rods, the break
ing strain is4U tons tor square inch; and
when drawn into wire of 22 B. W. G., of
67 tons per square inch.
This beautiful refuge from summer heat,
dust and mosquitoes, is now open
for tho season. Threo never-failing
8prings of coldest water whoso medical
qualities have stood 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 cliffs, a hundred
feet high, jutting out here and thero in
fantastic thapes resembling beasts snd birds.
The woodland paths are a continual temp
tation to long and delightful rambles of
which one forgets.to become weary.
AS ARTIFICIAL LAKE
for boating and fishing has been added
to the natural scenery, bounded on one side
by cliffs at whoso base the water reaches a
depth of ten to fifteen feet and the other is
a gradual slope from the hills, the whole
covering several acres of ground.
"No. 1" tho "Iron Spring"has properties
that are unsurpassed as a tonic and is almost
a specific for malaria. .
"No. 2" the ''Magnesia," is a never-failing
remedy for dyspepsia, and liver or kidney
troubles, and the "Alum Spring" does
the best 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 renova
ted; the beds are furnished with mattresses
and springs; new cottages have beeu built;
the dining-room is large and airy and the
kitchen is in charge of a first class steam
boat cook all, for the summer, at $8.00 per
week; children under 12 years, second or
separate table, half price.
Parties from Cairo can take an early
breakfast at home or at Vienna and arrive
at the Springs in time for dinner; fare
across by hack 75 cents or by private con
veyance for three or more 75cts. to $1.00,

A STRANGE AND STARTLING
IS TI1EKE A SPIRIT WOULD?
A remarkable dream of preternatural
visitation recently occurred in Louisville,
Ky.: Mr. V. E. Morera, a gentleman well
and favorably known about town, on re
tiring for the night, feeling unwell and
nervous was very restless in his sleep, but
seemed to himself to be wide awake and in
full control of his senses. A vision ap
peared in his dream showing him a large
flaming number commanding him to ob
tain it from the lottery and then vanished.
The dream was so startling s to fully
awaken him, and although one who never
believed in lotteries or upheld thorn, yet
try as he would he could not shako off tho
vision or forget the numbers which seemed
to be burned in his brain. Finally he
called at tho office of tho Commonwealth
Distribution Co., and paying $1, asked for
a ticket with tho numbers of his dream on
it. Fortunately the number was unsold
and his ticket given him. Tbo drawing
was soon to come off and so nervous and
excited had ho becomo that, although
against his principles, ho determined to
witness it, and strangoly enough, he saw
his number drawn from tho wheel and tho
handsome prize of $5,000 was his. Was
this simply a coincidence? Who can tell?
Next drawing takes place in Louisville,
Ky., May 81st; 1,000 prizes, amounting to
$112,400. Whole Tickets only $2. Ad
