whether or not a tool chest and valise bear

them upon the person of a man who was
murdered in Madison county, Mo., in 1881
were found in this city anywhere. The
trunk of the murdered man was found in
tltis city soon after the murder was commit
ted, but the tool chest and valise were not .
found. The checks are discribed as being
of bras?, supposed to have been issued by a
hotel. One is circular, with the letters
"O. P." over, and the letter "L." under
neath, tho number, "129." The other is
shield shaped, with tho letter "B." just be
low the mortise, over the number "18."
Several of our citizens made some very
good investments in the Lousiana lottery
last month. Mr. A. T. DeBaun holds a

therefore to be entitled to $15,000; but by
an arrangement iu purchasing the tickets.
Messrs. G. H. Jackson and T. M. Lovett
share with him in the pile, each taking
$5,000. Mr. Gus Botto and Conductor A.
B. Gibson on the Wabash road, jointly hold
another fifth of tho same number and draw
each $7,500.-That is it the telegrams sent
here yesterday signod by the manager of

-Sonio commotion was created about
police headquarters yesterday afternoon by
the arrest by Chief Myers of a young no
gro named Granville Childs who some days
ago niada rather free use of a weapon. It
seems that a crowd of young buckc,
Childs among them, hud been shooting
craps in a box car down town somewhere
and that during the progress the game a
quarrel ensued which broke np the party.
Granville grabbed the "boodle," and when
pursued, drew a loaded revolver which he
snapped at the foremost of the party io the
rear, who was quite near. . Fortunately the
weapon did not go off, or there would cer
tainly have been blood shed. The chief is
determined to break up, as near as possible,
the habit of carrying weapons, so common
among the young "toughs," "thugs,"
"sluggers," "crooks," idlers, and innocent
looking sharpers, who are always looking
for a fi'ht and ready with a weapon. Childs
is arrosted under a stato warrant charging
him with an assault with intent to commit
murder. His mother made quite a scene
at the headquarters about her "poor boy,"'
but Granville was locked up and will be

The Paducah News leajua "from a
gentleman just in from Maytield that the
people of that place were sorly troubled
with and greatly excited over the preval
ance there of flux, which is raging as an
epidemic. It was learned that in the
previous twenty-four hours there were five
deaths in Mayfield, three from flux and two
from other causes, all being children, with
some sixty persons reported sick and sever
al of the ill in a precarious condition. In
addition to the sorry condition of affairs at
Mayfield it is also" understood that a very
large number of cases of flux and similar
diseases ex'st all over Graves county and
that the physicians have to ride night and
day to look after the sick." The News of
the same date says with reference to Padu
can "that flux, dysentery and all their kin
dred diseases are alarmingly prevalent in
Paducah this season. They are evidently
epidemic in Graves county, and may be
come so here. In the meantime it be
hooves people to be cracful in their diet,
see that the functions of the body are
regular, keep regular hours an maintain a
clear conscience." In view of all this Cairo
may indeed congratulate herself upon her
entire freedom from any disease of the
nature of a contagion and apon the prevail
ance of very little sickness of any kind.

Judge J. H. Robinson convened county
court yesterday morning in regular law
term. But the following criminal cases
were disposed of without a jury:
George O ill, a fifteen-year-old darkey,
wlio had shot at another negro, who was
chasing him near the gas works sometime
ago, pleaded guilty to the charge of assault
with a deadly weapon. Being warned by
the court that such a plea would send him
to the Reform school for n term of years,
the young criminal assumed an air of un
due recklessness, said he was "guilty ub do
devilment," there was no uie in denying it,
and he didn't :aro a cent where he went,
"to de jail or the pen'tentiary or de 'fo'm
school." The court sentenced him to three
years in the latter.
Henry Churchfield, charged with petty
larceny, was found guilty after a trial, but
a motion was made for a new trial which
will bo argued to-day or to-morrow.
James Henderson, a young negro charged
with stealing minor articles from tho store
of Mr. G. F. Ort, was discharged because
he was under ten years of age and could
not thcrofore commit a crime under the

ELAINE I.IVsSVifal OIL
Over other Kelined Products of Petroleum
for Illuminating Purposes.
Persons who have neither time nor inclination to investigate the peculiar
merits of tho various (Trades of refined petroleum, ask why ELAINE is safer
and better than other oils V w r
it Is because Klslne, in th process of manufacture, is taken out at a point of
the dintillation where every trace of parafflne, or benzine and of the other
daiurerous elements of petroleum Is eliminated It is conceded by practical
refiners of petroleum that the first product distilled over is highly inflammable
aud that the last part of the operation contains ery dangerous explosive In
gredients; to avoid having- in Klaiue either of theaebad properties it is absolute
ly nece-sary to manufacture it from the heart of the distillation, and for this
reason much less proiMirtion for illuminating: purpose is had If Klaine was made
as the ordinary rt fined petroleum of commerce. This, with the subsequent
treatment of Elaine, makes it rather more expensive than other oils.
Cousumcrs must, however, remember that in Its use they have a great pro
tection to lite and property guaranteed, which ought certainly to compensate
ior its nominal extra cost.
For oil stoves it is preferable to any other grade of oil, not only as a "safd
oil" but iu purity prevents crusting1 on wicks aud consequent heat and smoke

Acting Editor Argua:
Well, I am at thin ilulightful spot erjety
ing myself. I cau't 8ny that I am taking
on fleuli very fuel I Imvcn't haJ ti rit out
any seams io my vent yet, but tlmt in not the
fault of the gpungs. Nature never intund
c l me for an ori'inul fur a cut of a man
"after taking" some wiiltly advertioeo! bit
ters, ami during this awfully hot weather'I
am Kind of it. I don't want to beany more
fleshy. I pity the people of Evauaville
just now. I am sitting here under the ce
dar trees, and a delightful breeze is blow
ing, and an it strikes my fevered brow laden
with the thousand odors from the leafy
dolls and ferny fjludes, it it h-dd on,
I've bit off more thuu I can clisw. Now to
get back. Dixon Springs is one watering
place that lean write of and not feel tlmt I
am writing an advertisement. The place
strikes us so favorably tlmt I fuel that it is
a pleasure to let people know of such a nice
spot, and ono so easy of access. The
springs are twelve miles buck of Golcnnda,
III , ami about u,u!-distant from Vienna, on
the C. & V. Railroad. The road to this
place is like all country roads in a moun
tainous district, good in some places aud
not so good in others, but after reaching
this beautiful spot one forgets all tho trou
bles of tho trip. We forgot ours before we
got fairly out of the hack. Tho Oolconda
cornet band were spending the day here,
and as they knew wo were coming tlicy
concluded to givo a gmnd reception to the
Argus baby. We g it htlf way down tho
hill before they saw ui, and then there was
askurrying after horns, and when they got
started I am afraid that some of them
opened their munle books on the wrong
psgr, for the musio cnuie out in mixed up
chunks. But anyhow the will wt goud,
and I think tho baby appreciated It. Tho
hotel proper Is directly on tho road, whilo
tho cottages form three sides of a hollow
square. Everybody lives in tho cottages
and the courtyard, If such I may call it, is
filled with pretty cedar trees and is always
shady. Long porches extend along the
fronts of the cottages aud make delightful
promenades. Tho faro is elegant, and that
covers tho case. Tho water produces such
