burned to death in bed yesterday. It is
thought she had been smoking and that the
bed clothing caught fire from her pipe
while she was asleep. There was no one
in the house with ho: at the time and when
she awoke the fire was burning in huge
flimes all along one side of bor. By an
unusual effort she rolled herself out of bed
and in her fall to the floor sustained serious
injuries. She cried for help and tho neigh

probable burning of tho poor woman. Al

render some valuable service.
Sheriff Jno. Hodgea yesterday con
cluded the sale of proporty in this county
upon which the taxes had not been paid.
Every piece ot property found a ready
buyer, which is in marked contrast to the
sales of this nature in Pulaski county and
other counties, where but few buyers are
found and the taxes go by default. As a
collector of taxes Sheriff Hodges has few
eqnals, and as payors of taxes our people

slate administration shall sum up some
excuse for again levying an outrageous

crats in their places, the state taxes will be

A young river man named Patton, who
hasbecomo somewhat notorious as a "slug

tho Comique, had imbibed a little too
freely Sunday and "felt his oats." Ho

and he was in a fair way to give some
practical illustrations of his prowess when

Sunday a strangu negro, showing all

importance to communicate, that ono of

a certain saloon uptown, bragging of his
connection with the lawles gang and display

the truth of his boastings. In reply to
questions the negro said he had come from
Pulaski county to see if he couldn't "fine out

"Uelloa, old boy, what takes so many
people out riding?" said Sgt. Mercury to
Sgt. Bluff as they stood on the step3 of the
Custom House the other evening.
"Where have you been all this time?"
asked Bluff, in a tone ot intense disgust.
"Why, I took a little run up to St. Louis
strictly on tusiuess, my dear boy fact
sir, I assure you and Cairo seems to have
turned upside down in my absence."
"Well, I should remark," answered Bluff,
unbending a little pity for his friend's man
ifest ignorance. "This play of ours has
been rehearsing at the Cotton Compress for
several weeks, and public interest was on
the qui vive to find out something about
what went on thero. Hiding parties were
en regie, of course and they thought they
could sneak round and find out something
in that way. But we fixed them."
"How did you do it?"asked Mercury put
ting bis bauds in his pockets, and balanc
ing on one foot.
"Why, wo just put up the yellow fever
flag as a danger signal, and the folks fo!r
lowed up tho example of Napoleon's ainiy,
Tbuy galloped up the bill,
And tben galloped down azaln."
"But I hear that your prompter, William
Henry Goat, gave tho whole thing away?"
"Oh! that was all fun," answered Bluff;
"something that happened at rehearsal did
leak out, of course they always will, you
know and then that drug store man (you
know whom I mean) he and his cronug
talked pretty big, and looked knowing."
"I hear that Swell had to pay for all the
posts, sandals and things (stage properties
etc.) used in the play, and was out to the
tune of a hundred dollars," said Mercury.
"Well, now you'd better believe he's no
such fool," said Bluff. "The club paid for
every last thing, except what was donated;
even down to the cake, which William
Henry Goat reduced to the dimensions of a
hollow ring. That fellow wanted a salary,
too, but wo displayed the club, and be
"Well, tell us all about the performance?"
said Mercury. "You know I was out of
town, and St. Louis was no fun at all. Wish
I had beeu here to boo tho play."

you'll be as wise an tho rest," answered
Bluff; and ho wont into tho pootofflco, nnd

It is because Elaine, in tin process of manufacture, Is taken out at a point of
the di-tillatlou where every trace of imrattlue, of benzine and of the other
danireroiis elements of petroleum is eliminated It Is conceded by practical
reliiters or petroleum that the first product distilled over is liUrhly inflammable,
and that the last part of the operation contains very dangerous explosive In
gredients; to avoid having in Maine either of these bad properties it is absolute
ly nece-sary to manufacture it from the heart of the distillation, and for thii
reason much less proportion for Illuminating purpose is had if Elaine was made
as the i-dinorv refined petroleum of commerce. This, with the subsequent
treatment of Elaine, makes it rather more expensive than other oils.
Consumers must, however, remember that in its use they have a great pro
tection to lite aud pr'i ty guaranteed, which ought certainly to compensate
for its nominal extra cost.

treats them all as lemons, to be squeezed
for his beoelit. Juhu, his friend, seeks to
curb his wauJering impulses, or turn them
into such channels as will insure to his per
