The Wife of an Ambassador
recently put the following question to the

A man named Joseph Chaudet fell Irom
a reaper on his farm near Paducah Wed
nesday and was so badly cut up in various
ways that his arms and legs will probably
have to be amputated. It is thought that
he will die.
Mcssers. P. Powers, waon builders on
Tenth street, received an order for a dray a
few days ago, from Fort Benton, Montana
Territory. The dray is to be sunt by rail
and the freight will amount to more than
the cost of the dray here.
A new three-seated hack has been add
ed to the outfit of Dixon Springs, and par

in time, be met at tho train at Vienna, or
can leave the Springs at any time they wish
without waiting to order a conveyance.
Frank M. Gilbert, editor of Evans
ville Argus and author of "Planket," is at
Dixon Springs with dog and gun. He will
find first-claBs hunting but no game, and in
less than a week will willingly walk five
miles to see a tree that tradition says a
squirrel has once been seen in.
A team belonging to Wm. Elliott ran
away from near tho corner of Sixth street
and Ohio levee, got loose from tho wagon
when it reached the City National Bank
and ran on either side of a telegraph pole,
which caused both to turn summersaults
after the most approved fashion. No dam
age was done to the horses or wagon, but
the harnesses were torn somewhat.
Wednesday the inspectors of stunnw
boat boilers for this district wore here and
among others, they tented the boilers of tho
steamer Three Statos. The boilers were
subjected to a hydraulic pressure ot two
hundred and ten pounds to the square inch
and they did not even swoat, which indicat
ed a condition much superior to moBt boil
ers in use on regular steamers.
It is likely that soon a systematic
building and rebuilding of sidewalk in all
parts of tho city will be commenced. The
street committee at a moeting yesterday,
afternoon, Chairman Halliday presiding,
made it one of its objects to look up all
ordinances relating to sidewalks, passed by
the council for some time back; and tho
committee proceeded to ascertain to what
extent they had been complied with. They
found a number of ordinances of this na
turo tho provisions of which romained
unexecuted and they will probably recom
mend in their report to the council that
steps at once be taken to carry these pro
visions of these ordinances into immediate
Officer Dunker yesterday swore out s
warrant against Patrick Welsh tor keeping
a disorderly house up town on Commercial
avenue, But the evidence developed tho
fact that Patrick was not running the houso
and hence Magistrate Comings discharged
him. There was ample proof, however,
that the mau who does run tho house is lia
ble to prosecution under the ordinances.
Ou tho 1st of July Mr. John Keohlcr,
Jr., will take u partnership interest in the
shoo store of Mr. Henry Block, on Com
mercial avenue. Mr. Koehler is a young
mini of considerable business experience,
popular as a salesman with the trading
public of tho city, and in every other way
au estimable young man. Mr. Block lias
been very buoccshI'uI in the past, the new
firm will be more so.
Mr. Thomas P. S. Home expects to
leave for the far west on or about tho 1st of
July. He will go on a prospecting tour,
with a view to locating somewhere in busi
ness for himself. During Mr. Home's many
years of engagement in business here, ho
proved himself to be possessed of the elo
ments necessary to success and of qualitios
that render him entirely worthyolit. So
ciety hero will regret his departure.
A young fellow named Harris, who was
in this city some time ago circulating coun
terfeit ten-dollar notes, with which he
"caught" several of our merchants was
seutenced to three years in tho penitentiary
by the supreme court at Springfield Wed
nesday. Mr. Jno. Marx, one of the vic
tims and salesman for Mr. A. Marx, return

A force ot government surveyors have
been at work at and around Bird's Point
for a week or ten days, laying out the line
for a government levee. It is said they
are to estimate the cost of an embankment
reaching from Commerce, Mo., to a point in
Arkansas opposite Memphis. The Missis
sippi river commission bas the matter in
charge; the work will probably ho done
gradually, merely to aid the natural forces
of the river In deepening tho channel.
The air was rather cold for the lawn
sociable of the Presbyterian ladies at the
residence of Mr. J. B. Reed last niht, but
here was a large attendance and the time
was f pent in a manner usual to occasions of
social intercourse. Mr. and Mrs. Reed, and
adits in charge, succeeded admirably in
making the time fly pleasantly for all.
Music by Prof. Storer's band was an impor
tant, feature of the entertainment. A
handsome sum must have been realized.
Col. Joseph Kingston, a wealthy
batchelor of Greenville, Ills., is in the city
m his way to St. Louis, Tlie Colonel has
spent several months traveling through
Kentucky and the south, and being a gen
tleman of leisure free from tho cares of bus
iness, will probably spend tho summer
reviewing the great west. On his way from
Kentucky he spent several days at Dixon
Springs and will remain in Cairo for a
short visit to his neice, Mrs. Burnett.
The B ile of the saloon fixtures of the
establishment until recently run by Mr.
Jno. Bowers, under a mortgage held by
Mr. Louis Herbert, took place yesterday
forenoon. Since then several persons have
applied for tho placo to reopen the saloon
aud it is likely that, before long, an euer-
getic man will have the place in full blast
again. And this will doubtless be before
the 1st of July, too, in order to obtain the
icensc under tho old rate, before tho Har
per bill goes into effect.
The executive committee of the South
ern Illinois Teschers' association mot at
Ccntralia Tuesday and perfected arrange
ments for the next annual meeting of that
association, which is to bo hold at Carbon
dale on tho 28th, 20th, and 30th of next
August. Prot. S. M. Inglis of the South
ern Normal and also president of the asso
ciation will deliver the address of welcome.
The leading schoolmen of Southern Illi
nois, as well as some of tho prominent edu
cators of tho state at large, have indicated
their intention of being present.
Those living and doing business in
close proximity to the Planters house ruins
are in almost constant dread of complete
annihilation by tho falling down upon them
of the several fragments of walls which
loom up in a menacing sort of way on
either side of them. It is assertod by them,
and by others who saw it, that during a
strong wind the walls sway to and fro sev
eral inches out of plum and that, frequently,
bricks and pieces of brick come tumbling
down upon the roofs of tho adjoiuitig houses
with loud, rattling noises that causo the
inmates to shudder with a
fear of being hurried beneath
a mass of debris. The walls DO look
dangerous and as though it would take
something less than a Jumbo of a hurrlcano
to tip them over one way or another.
War between China and France seoms
to bo inevitable, a result to bo no longer
delayed. A cablegram from Shanghai to
the New York Herald, says that M. Til
cou, the French envoy, has delivered to LI
Hung Chang his ultimatum rejecting the
Chinese suzerainty of Anam, with the al
ternative of war, and demanded an imme
diate answer. Should Chinese soldiers
bo found in Anam they will be shot
bandits by tho French. Should China
tnako a movement of troops or ships to
Anam it will be regarded as an act of war.
He insists that China shall make instant
agd absolute withdrawal of her pretentions,
France proposing to deal with Anam as an
independent power, and iotimutcs that
France may domain of China tho expenses
of tho expedition becauMo Chinese action
has rendered the expedition necessary. Mr,
Tricou demands an immediate answer to
his ultimatum, and Li Hung Chang, who
will command the Chinese forces in the
event ol war, has meinoiialized t ie emper
or. A lew dayB will decide for peaco of
war. China relies upon tho good offices of
the European powers to prevent tho latter
The expected order tor the consolida
te f Revenue Districts has been issued
by the pnsident. It reduces the 120 dis
tricts previously existing to 82 a reduc
tion of 44, or about one-third. In Illinois
the second and third districts are consoli
dated, to bo known as the second district,
Lucien Ii. Crooker, collector, headquarters
probably at Aurora. The seventh and
eighth districts are consolidated under the
name of the eighth district, Jiimcs W.
Hill, collector. Commenting upon the con
solidation of the eighth and stventh dis
tricts the Springfield Journal says: "As a
consequence, Col. Minium retires lrom a
position which he has held fur 6ome ten
years, discharging Its duties with an effici
ency which has secured for the office a rank
among the first-class offices in the country.
Yet ho is ruled out by an absurd rule
which places the junior collectors in charge
of enlarged districts while the most experi
enced and capable collectors arc consoli
dated out of existence." The Journal is a
Republican paper, always very proue to see
only the very essence of propriety iu every
thing done by Republican officials, and, if
smitten, to look upon tho punishment us
well deserved and to kiss the rod with rap
turous admiration of the weilder. Its pout
ing and gentle rebuke in this case, Is doubt
less just, but not at all consistent.
Times are dull in the city now, just as
they are everywhere else; but just have pa
tience for a little while longer ami you will
seo what will make your heart glad. You will
see a monster meeting at the Opera House,
the outcome of which will be tho carrying
out of plans for important internal im
provements in tho city. When this im
provement shall have been thoroughly in
augurated, you will seo every laboring
man in ibe city at work hauling dirt to fill
up streets; masons and carpenters will be
busy at raising, repairing and changing
houses; paiDters and paper hangers will bo
busy beautifying the newly reconstructed
houses; money will be plentiful among the
consumers and they will spend it freely for
the necessaries and comforts of life. There
will be an influx of several hundred fam
ilies of mechanics and laborers, the heads
of which will all find immediate employ
ment; existing houses will all be occupied
by good, paying renters; more houses will
be needed and provided, and occupied as
rapidly as built; there will be an increased
demand for your groceries, vegetables,
clothing, dry goods, furnitute, hardware,
millinery, carpets, lumber, fuel, ice; there
will be a general revival of all branches of
industry, a healthy condition of trade, a
pnperoiis community. Rut above all, the
city will gradually rise from behind her im
mense banks of earth and from the sipe-wa-tercovcred
flats to the proud eminence of a
city on a hill; she will suddenly burst upon
tho bewildered gazo of the outside world
as would the sun springing at once from
midnight to mid-day; the boom within
will Oi'get a boom from without; inuii of
ineins and men of malice would no longer
be ahla to magnify our one slight natural
lisadvantage into a huge, black pall with
which to hide our many great natural ad
vantages; wealth willcomu to us, manufac
tories will comets us; we will bo on tho
very top of tho road to that permanent
greatness along tho base of which we have
been traveling slowly but hopefully for lo!
these many years. Lot no one bo dispon

then pitch iu with heart aud band to give
tho good work its starting boost, and after
