During the strong wind storm the other

The Cairo elevator is to be raised

below the fl'Kr out of water during flood

steamers or barges lying at the bank, into
tho building. The work of raising the
elevator will be a huge undertaking.
Wire wornu are great pest in soun lo
calities. Hometinies whole fields of corn
have to be replanted, owing to the fi st
planting having oeea consumed by the
worms. A Scotch farmer some years ago
accidentally discovered that oil cake had
the emt of destroying these worms. Tho
cake was broken up about the size of beans
and sown over tho land, the insects a. into
the cake and perished, whether from glut
tony, or other causo is not known.
Tho young girl to whom reference was
madn in yesterday's Bulletin, as having
run awav from her home in Centralis, is
being tared for at the home of Chief My
era. She says her name is Lizzie Fennell,
that she baa no relatives living; that she
left Centralia beciusu the man in whose
family she was at work wanted to force her
to submit to the attentions ot a young fel
low whom she did not like, and that she
would die be Tor o she would return to Cen
tralia. For ber age she fairly bristles witli
courage. She lays she is amply able to
take caro of herself and will do so if she
can get work. Sho wants to work in a
boarding house or hotel, saying that she
has waited on tables for about three years.
Whfn she came she looked like a veritable
tramp, dirty, unkempt, half dressed and
half starved. The chief kindly took her to
his home and Mrs. Myers took her in band
and by means of soap and water and clean
clothing transformed her into a very pre
possessing girl. She is evidently a brave,
virtuous little girl and if given half a
chance, will make something of herself.
The negro named Richard Dowell who
was arrestad Tuesday by Officer McTigue,
upon the charge of burglarizing the shoo
shop of J. W. Williams, on Washington
avenue, and taking therefrom s p iir of
shoes, a coat and a book, was examined by
Magistral Comings yesterday and dis
charged. Mr. Angus Leek appeared for
the prisoner. It appeared from the evi
dence that Dowell had bought the shoes
from two white men on tho night of the
burglary, and that he was a hard-working
man living in the Fourth ward.
A large part of yesterday was taken
up in Magistrate Comings' court in the
trial of a civil case to which Mr. Jas. L.
Denny an uptown carpenter, was complain
ant and Mr. Patrick Eagan, dolendant.
Complainant had done some carpenter work
for defendant and claimed extra pay for
work dono outside of that originally agreed
npon. Tho amount claimed was f 18. But
defendant proved by experts that there
was no good ground for such a claim and
the court decided accordingly. Mr. Geo.
Hendricks represented to plaintiff and Mr.
Angus Leek, the defendant.
Most persons are careful to fasten their
doors and windows at night to prevent
burglary. But how many ever think of the
burglar who is constantly lurking about
the house, ready to snatch away a member
of the lamily or prostrate with disease,
that enemy resides in the cellar. His name
is gas. lie is bred find nourished by rem
nants of decaying vegetables which have
been stored there last fall. You may not
see him, but if you do not speedily remove
all decaying rubbish from your cellars and
disinfect with caustic lime, you will soon
feel his grip a death grip it may be, too.
Hot weather is coming, remember.
Quite a crowd of people stood on Ohio
levco lust evening to see tho steamer Will
8. nays come into port. She got to Mem
phis several hours ahead of the St. Lmis
and made the run from New Orleatjs to
here in three days and sixteen hours, making
fifty-eight laudiugs and laying up several
hours at one or two of these. She made a
very good run considering everything.
But, as Btated elsewhere, there was evident
ly no attempt at a race, certainly not on the
part of the St. Louis, for she made not even
her usual time, though she made only
thirty-one landings. The St. Louis will
reach here to-night somo time, having laid
over at Memphis until this morning early.
The steamer Hays reached Mem
phis first yesterday, several hours ahead of
the St. Louis. Several hundred dollars
changed hand on the race (?) in this city.
The reason why it was believed here that
the boats were racing, was that the captiins
of the steamers, when they went down from
here, each predicted, that it both boats left
New Orleans together, his boat would
reach Memphis before the other. Bat,
though the boats left New OrleanB together
thero was very evidently no attempt at
racing; for both boats did their usual busi
ness, making moro than their usual stops
andninning at less than their usual rates of
speed. Tho race seems to have been entire
ly in tho mental optics of the several sport
ing gentlemen here, whose mania for bet
ting, etc., led them blindly into putting up
money on their own delusion.
About 5 o'clock Tuesday evening fire
broke out in a room on the third
floor of the building on Eighth
street, occupied by Mr. It. Heb
sacker, and when discovered was burning
in hutre names toward tne ceiling, lull a
dozen buckets ot water quickly thrown
upon it quenched the tiro, but not until
considerable damage had been done to the
carpet, a bed stead, chair and other furni
ture. The room was occupied by Miss
Josie Miller, who lives with Mr. Heb-
sackcr's family, and a largo trunk contain
ing much of her wardrobe was totally de
stroyed, which is a great loss to her. Mr.
Hebsacker had his household good insured,
and tho Star company, of New York, rep
resented here by Messrs. Wells fc Kerth,
yesterday paid biui $15 to identify him for
his loss by the fire. No alarm was given
and hence the fire escaped public attention
"Should women ride like men"is a sub
ject that has created considerable discus
sion ia the English newspapers, the Lancet
(Loudon) now takes it up and concludes
that it would bo as well to leavo tho deter
mination of tho question to those whom it
principally concerns of whom there are now
quite a number in this city. We fancy
tiiey have no wish to change the custom.
The Scientific American upon this subject
says: "As a matter of fact, although it
may not appear to be the case, tho writer
continues, the seat which a woman enjoys
on a side-saddle is fully as secure, and not
nearly as irksome, as that which a man has
to maintain, unless ho simply balances
himself and does not gripe tho sides of his
horse either with the knee or the side of the
leg. It is curious to note tho different ways
in which the logs of men who pass much
time In the saddle are affected.' Hiding
with a straight leg and a long stirrup al
most invariably produces what are popu
larly called knocked-knees. Nearly all
tho mounted soldiers of the British army
suffer from this deformity, as any one who
will take the trouble to notice the men ot
the Life Guards and Blues walking may
satisfy himself. On the other hand, riding
with short stirrup produces bowed-legs.
Jockeys, grooms, and moat hunting men
who rido very frequently are more or less
bow-legged. The long stirrup rider gripes
his horso with the knee, while the short
stirrup rider gripes him with the inner side
of tho leg below tho knee. This difference
of action explains the difference of result.
No deformity necessarily follows the uso of
the side saddle if the precaution bo taken
with growing girls to changes sides on al
ternate days, riding on tho left sido one
day and tho right on tho next. The pur
pose of this change is to counteract the
tendency to leiin over to tho side opposite
that on which the leg is swung."
Tho report that Mr. A. T. DeBaun in
tends to erect a building on the Ohio Ieveo
soon Is an error, and was doubtless origin
ated, a3 Mr. DeBiun saya.by somo ono with
moro than his duo Bharo of impertinence,
who wished to suggest how Mr. DeBaun
ought to get rid of his little 5,000 he won
in the Louisiana lottery. Suggestions and
questions concerning this matter have near
ly overwhelmed Mr. DeBaun since the re
port of his good luck first went forth; but
ho has taken all suggestions good natured
ly and answered allquestions willingly. Mr.
DeBaun says he has bought tickets iu the
Louisiana lottery nearly every month fr
three years back, investing only two or
three dollars at a time, so that he did nut
feel his loss at all. Ho held winning tick
ets four or five times during these three
years, drawing five, ten, fifteen and once
one hundred aud twenty-five dollars, and
the fifteen thousand dollars, ono-fitth of the
capital prize. lie would have been a litde
ahead, he says, if he had not made the last
big haul. He believed it very foolish for a
man to invest ten, fifteen or twenty-five
dollars every month, or any amount over
what he could invest without mis-ingit;
and he thought that men who invest at all
ought to do so without expecting any re
turn, so that they might not become infat
uated with it to tho neglect of surer means
of livelihood. It was probably no more
certain that a man would draw the capital
prize than it was that he would bo struck
by lightning, but it was positively certain
that he would win anything, even
in business, it he merely took chances, and
be would never be struck by lightning it
he lived in a tunnel all his life. Mr. De
Baun had not taken the trouble to investi
gate lljC Ulna t wKtal.- K LmUU
concern was being conducted; but he
judged from his own transactions with it,
that it wis entirely legitimato and reliable.
He had alwajs been kept thoroughly post
ed as to the results of each drawing in
which he held a ticket. His winnings,
however small or large, had always been
promptly declared and remitted; he had
never had anv re:ison to believe that there
was any irregularity whatever. Besides, he
could see no reason why there should be
any attempt at coverts windling. Tho com
pany plainly stated in its circulars tho total
amount of the priz'ia, and the number and
price of tho tickots. From this statement
any one could see that if all tho tickets
were sold there would be a legitimate profit
to the company, of several hundred thou
sand dollars. The management of the con
cern was in tho hands of men prominent
in business circles and in politics, whoso
reputations for honorable dealing were un
impeached. He had no reason to fall in
with the general prejudice against all lot
teries, especially since the results of tho last
drawing in the Louisiana concern had been

"THE PEOPLE ABE COMING."
In extending the welcome of Washington
to the Mississippi river convention to be
held here next February the National Re
publican, orgaii of the administration, in
dires the objects of the convention very
emphatically in sn editorivl this morning.
Among other things it ssys: "The people
are coming themselves this time and con
grecs may as well take notice that they
mean business. Candi lutes for tho speak
ership, the scores of aspiring statesmen
who have the presidential bee buzzing in
their bonnets, mint tall into line or bo laid
on the shelf by the members of this conven
tion. We rather like this Western style of
doing business. It is frank and reaches its
object by direct means. A large majority,
and ve trust all, the members of congress
may be counted on to support this great
work which is of such transcendent impor
tance, not only to the producers of the West
and South but also the consumers of tho
East. It already has tho unqualified
I.NDOUSEMENT OF PRESIDENT AHTBCR,
Whose broad and liberal and statemanlike
message on this subject a year ago was so
extremely gratifying to the people of the
lower valleys. We think it will also re
ceive the the cordial support of the New
York and Eastern press, a portion of which
we rejjret to say has sought to place upou it
sectional stamp, hut it Is not sectional, it
is national, not only in extent and in tribu
tary resources, but in and politics. The
Mississippi 'and its forty-two navigablo
tributaries border or intersect twenty-one
states or territories. These states produce
each year three-fourths of the con, wheat,
oats, pork and cotton of the whole United
States. The river system is under the jur
isdiction of the federal laws; it extends
across the nation from North to South,
orming a national and indestructible bond
of union between the two sections. Its i i ii -
urovement is therefore most emphatically a
great national work. It is to be expected
that the convention will present its merits
in such a clear, comprehensive vud states
manlike manner that adequate legislation
may be secured without further delay."
A wise fiiherman at Smiling Waters,

A Harvard Student's Mash.
Tho train sped over !je track at the
rate of forty miles an hour, but some
how caeh hour had sixty minutes iu it,
just vla usual, nnd time hung heavy on
his soul. He was a Harvard student,
bound for Boston on tho Old Colony
railroad. Presently, at one of tho
way stations a pretty young lady
entered tho car, mid sat down near
the delighted student. Instantly hewn
wide awaki, and devoted all his ener
gies to engaging the admiring attention
of the fair one, First he pushed tho
blind up and down rmirtily in order to
at trail her attention. Thinking he hud
secured this, he opened a morning
paper, arid reclining gracefully, pro
tended to read. In reality hestared
steadily at tho ehanuer. ami whouever
she chanced to raise her eyes, she found
the student looking at her. Their eyes
met; he poured his whole .soul into ono
bewildering, captivating glaneo; she
bluihed slightly, and turned nervously
in her seat, but in that delicious instant
when he ga.ed into the limpid depths of
ber clear blue eve, ho fancied lie saw
there the reciprocation of bis own in
terest. With increasing confidence his
attitude became more imposing and
Iteantiful, and when tho train reached
Boston he considered his conquest as
sured. But in the meantime the whole
carfull had "caught on" to the student's
scheme, arid one of the passengers who
happened to know the young lady pass
ed round the word that fun whs coming.
So when the party stepped on the plat
form the student proceeded in the pres
ence of a large and interested audience.
Stepping elegantly up to the pretty girl,
ho said briskly "1 beg your pardon, but
I am suro wu must have met before.
Did I not have the pleasure of seeing
you nt Judge Smith's reception last
week? May I assist you with the bun
dle? Fine day is it not?" But the
maiden walked demurely on, never 8
much as blushing or turning her head.
Taken somewhat by surprise, the would
bo masher hesitated, stammered, hut
continued: "I thought possibly you
might remember my face. I am suro I
have seen you before. Wo had a very
enjoyable time at the ball last eve,
didn t wo?" As thu g mm result was
experienced from this attempt, ho bold
ly stepped in front of her, nnd raising
his bat, begun: "I beg your pardon,
Miss" but he stopped suddenly: sho
" was looking pityingly at him, nm'l mak-
ing signs to him In tho ueaf and dumb
alphabet. "Oh, holv cuspador! if that
Isn't another pieco of Harvard luck!" ho
gasped, and bolted for a borso-car. Tho
story leaked out, and now you can tell
that student by tho appenrance of pro
fanity Hint steals over hi face when any
ono happens to twlsthis ffngcrsor move
his hands In an unusual way.
