Among the work recommended by the
street committee in its last report to the
citv council, was the reconstruction of the
Ohio levee walk between Twelfth and
Fourteenth Btreets. The accomplishment
of this work will give the denizen of that
neighborhood a new lease of life.
On Wednesday, the little child of Mr
John Mitchel, postmaster at Bird's Point,
died on the steamer Three States just after
she had shoved out from this shore. Mr.
and Mrs. Mitchel had come over here to
obtain medical treatment for the child and
were on their ways back home when the
Mr. A. O.Phelps returned yesterday
from St. Louis, bringing with him a fine,
large lenso for his business. While at St.
Louis be saw tho fixtures and materials of
the art gallery of Mr. Wm. Winter, which
that gentleman had sent trom Denver to
St. Louis to be sold. Mr. Winter has re
moved fiora Denver and is now in Mexico
in search of health.
The staroute jury seems to have had
a "soft snap." One of tho jury, who before
the trial was known as a day laborer with
out a day's savings ahead, has commenced
to build a fine house, and several of them,
not much better off, have gono to fashiona
ble watering-places to pass the heated term.
Juryman Horrigan is credited with having
been told that he could have made $2,000
had he not been so hard to approach.
A little child of a family living on
Riilroad street near Eighth street died
sometime during Thursday or Thursday
night. Tho little corpse was refused con
veyance to Villa Ridge by the railroad com
pany, because of the absence of a certificate
from the attending physician that death
had not resulted from a contagious disease.
The remains were therefore conveyed to
Beech Grove by wagon yesterday afternoon.
The contract to raise the Mound City
levee has been let to Mr. Jno. Hoian, at
22c. per cubic yard. The work is all
scraper work. For a short stretch of wagon
work Mr. Ilogan is to receive 30c. per cubic
yard. When the city council of Cairo was
having the work on tho city's levee done at
by day labor at 17 or 18 cents per cubic
yard, there were citizens who cried aloud
against such extravagant prices lor work.
Speaking of the sales of tho effects of
the late Captain Hambleton at Mound City
Wednesday, the Argus-Journal says: "At
the sale of personal property at the ways
last Wednesday, Capt. W. P. Halliday
bought the most of it, including Dan
Bice's old circus hand wagon, which tho
lamented Capt. Hambleton took on a debt
some years ago. Capt. Halliday

In ordinary matters Green Phelps is a
good citizen, but in a fight ho is a"ba-ad
man." Yesterday evening he and another
negro named Litle had an excited verlml
engagement which culminated in an ener
getic physical engagement and in a"crushed
blackberry" face for Litle. A woman was
at tho bottom of tho traublo and "cops"
were at the elbows of tho billigerants be
fore they got through with tho fun. Tho
particulars ot the affair will probably be
developed in Magistrate Coming's court
Springfield Register: "There is a set
of fanatics in England who denounce vac
cinatiou and preach up Biuall pox, but the
statistics are too strong for them. In a ro
cent debate in parliament Sir Lyon Play fair
showed that vaccination was introduced
into tho kingdom at tho beginning of this
century. In forty years tho doath rato in
England from small pox has fall on from
3,000 per 1,000,000 to COO por 1,000,000.
In 1841 the government began to givj
gratuitous vaccination, and in thirteen
years tho avorago mortality had come down
to 305 per 1,000,000. Then vaccination
waa made compulsory, and in 1871 th mor
tality had fallen ugain to 223 per 1,000,
000. In the years 187173, when true com
pulsion was in fore, only 156 per 1,000,000
was the mortality rate. Scotland and Ire
land show a decline in the average mortal
ity, only to a greater degree, for Scotland,
in 1883, the Tate was only 6 per 1,000,000.
Tho injuries received by the negro
Charles Carver, the fugitive from justice
whom Constable Robinson brought back
Thursday, were not received by a fall from
a train, but by a thump from a passing
engine as he sat on the end of a tie, asleep,
Carver left hero on foot and when ho was
near Villa Ridge, ho sat down to rvst, but
fell asleep and was awakened by a teirilic
blow from the engine. His injuries are
more internal than external and are thought
not to bo fatal. He has a cut across his
back, just below the shoulder-blades.
An act passed tho late Illinois legisla
ture providing for the better arrangement
of election districts. It requires board of
county commissioners to create election dis
tricts for general election purposes, and to
define their boundaries, each district to
contaiu not more than seven hundred voters
with but ouo voting place in each district.
The act also provides that a separate regis
try ehall bo mado for each voting district.
The late plan of voting by precincts, with
as many polls as was deemed necessary to
accommodate tho voters, may havo done
very well in the past, out is entirely unsiiit
ed to the present time.
A permanent organization was effected
by the Mississippi River Conference at St.
Louis on Wednesday, with Mr. B. D.
Wood, of New Orleans, as permanent
chairman; Mr. Geo. S. Wright, permanent
secretary, and a number of prominent gen
tlemen, among them Mayor Thomas W.
Halliday, of this city, as vice presidents.
Captain Thomas W. Shields was appointed
by the chairman on a committee on order
of business. The committee on River Im
provement the Chamber of Commerce of
this city consists of Captuin Thos. W.
Shields, Captain Thomas Wilson, Ex-Mtyor
N. B. Thistlewood, Mayor Thos. W. Holi
day, aud Postmaster W.'M. Murphy.
Persons who, believing that tho corpo
rate limits of tho city of Cairo are defined
by the levees, and amuse themselves by
shooting at birds, etc., just out Bide of the
levees, are laboring under a mistake and
are liable to prosecution under the ordin
ance prohibiting the discharge of weapons
except as specified. By an act of the leg
islature the, boundaries of the city of Cairo
are,a line drawn from river to river at a point
just below the Wabash round house.and the
centre line of the channels of the two
rivers. These "remarks" are called forth
by the fact that 6everal young gentlemen
have been firing guns and pistols just out
side tho Mississippi levee near the Oil
mills, to the annoyance of citizens.
The subject of buying up trade dollars
at a discount and paying them as wagea to
wnrkingmon is exacting much attention.
Some of the newspapers call upon tho
trades unions to use their influence to stop
this dishonest practice. The New York
World says: "The trade dollar has long
been used by employers to pay for Jalxr.
It has been tuken in ordinary business
transtictions, and no one knows to what ex
tent the country is flooded with these bo
gus representatives of an honest dollar.
No one knows how much tribute the poor
working people of the United States havo
been compelled to pay to the silver kings
by buying eighty-seven cents worth of their
metal for a dollar."
The fourth centennial of Martin Lu
ther will bo celebrated in Brooklyn by a
festival on November 11, tho day after Lu
ther's birthday. The movement was started
tho other day at a meeting of German
Evangelical clergymen, and the programme
settled upon include orations in Gorman and
English and vocal and instrumental music.
The jubilee is to open at 2 o'clock in the
afternoon and proceed to its conclusion.
On the three days succeeding the festival
lectures are to be delivered on the Reforma
tion and Luther's life by noted German ora
tors. Somebody was thoughtless enough
to suggest a statue to Luther, but the prop
osition was not entertained. Tho living re
sults of his life an 1 work it was deemed
would be belittled bo dedicating to him a
cold Btntuo in this ago of free thought and
enlightenment which ho was primarily in
strumental in building.
The London Lancet has made the dis
covery that thero is "no powerful apparatus
lor the convenience of diBeasothan a book."
It mentions measles, scarlet fever, diphthe
ria and other ills to which tho juvenilo
community are espccialy prone as being
eaty to catch from books. The germs of
disease may lio for months or even years
between tho leaveB of books that aro sel
dom handled. The Lancet does not recom
mend that books bo excluded friim schools
nor that bound literature should be avoided.
Indeed, it does not make any reconimonda
turn on tno subject. Perhaps it would bo
well to sprinklo books frequently with
i. . e i n. . .
nun oMiuiiuii ui curoouc niilU or SotllO
other disinfectant, but probably tho most
practical remedy against this storing up of
disease germs would bu to keep tho books
well aired. A book laid awaX on a shelf
aud Boldom used is ao article of littlo
value, keep the books in use. Kuep them
wide open amt explore between all tho
loaves as often as possible. Don't keep any
books ou hand that you uou't waut to read
frequently. Tho oftoneryou read tho more
you will know and tho less liablo you aro
to harbor a centro of iufection. This plan
would bu not only effective but instructive.
No real lover of books should hesitate to
take tho risk of trying it.
Work on the Mississippi bank below
the city's levee was continued yesterday by
a force of about fifty men under Alderman
Mcllale. Sucks of dirt and rock were
sunk where tho cutting was Koing on and
tho work of the water was about stopped
entirely last oveuing. The cutting was not
itt till serious, but would, of course, have
become so if neglected. It whs just about
such a cut as undermined tho old Missis
sippi levee when the C iiro & St. Louis road
was under obligations to muintuiu tho cm
Intiiktrent.aud, as in this instance the action
of the river has been stopped by little ef
fort and the expenditure of a small sum of
money in time, so then, a tew car loads of
dirt and rock used in timo would have
saved the old embankment. The spot where
the cutting has now taken place has given
trouble several times before when the river
was about at its present stage. But Col.
Taylor is about to enter into a contract for
rendering the spot where the cutting has
now taken place, so that no future abrasion
can take place. A mattress is to be sunk
hy an engineer who has experience in such
work, and weighed down with rock, which
will probably necessitate tho expenditrure
of five or six thousand dollars.
The following resolutions passed by the
Mississippi river conference at St. Louis
Wednesday, embody the gist of tho work
done by the conference and give some idea
ot what is intended to be done:
Resolved that it is the sense of this meet
ing that a river convention be held in the
Mississippi valley, the place to be hereafter
designated, not later than the 20th of No
Resolved that it is the duty of the com
mercial bodies of the cities aud towns, and
of the farmers and laborers in each con
gressional district in the Mississippi valley,
to petition their respective representatives
in congress and uphold and vote for ade
quate appropriations for the improvement
of the Western water-ways.
Resolved that in the selection hereafter
of members of congress from the Mississip
pi valley it should be the especial care of
all tho people interested that no candidates
be selected except those pronouncedly in
favor of the river improvement.
Resolved that the seasoning of time Ill's
but rendered more valuable and necessary
to the public weal tho proceedings of the
Mississippi river improvement convention
held in St. Louis, October 25, 27 and 28,
181, and we commend its action to the

ELAINE l.rASfel OIL
Over other Kefined Products of Petroleum
for Illuminating Purposes.
Persons who have neither time nor inclination to investigate the nocnllar
merits of the various grades of refined petroleum, auk why ELAINE is safer
and better than other oils? , ""er
it is because Eluine, in tin process of manufacture, is taken out at a point of
the distillation where every trace of parafllne, of benzine and of the otbw
danirerons elements of petroleum Is eliminated It is conceded by practical
rentiers of petroleum that the first product distilled over is highly inflammable,
and that the last part of the operation contains very dangerous explosive in
irredieuts; to avoid having: in Elaine either of these bad properties it Is absolute
ly nece-sary to manufacture it from the heart of the distillation, and for thla
reason much less proportion for illuminating purpose is had if Elaine was made
as the ordinary refined petroleum of commerce. Thin, 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 lit and property guaranteed, which ought certainly to compensate
lor its nominal extra cost.
For oil stoves it is preferable to any other grade of oil, not only as a "safe
oil but its purity prevents crusting on wicks and consequent heat aud smoke.
