of the wharf. Having finished his bath he
proceeded to dres himself, but found a
portion of his garments, that intended for
the lower extremities, in a different posi

suspected trickery, examined his p-.ckets
and, sure enough, some one had b'-en there
since he had left, and taken with him a

-The survey and profile of a projected
railroad Irom Shawnoetown to Paducah, on
tho Illinois side, has just been made and the
greatost portion of the right-of-way secur
ed. The distancs betwoen the two points
is about fifty-two miles by the survey. The
city of Paducah has voted $100,000 in aid
of its construction. This Hue of road was
projected sevoral ago, being known as tho
Chicago and Paducah railroad, which was
built as far as Altamount, the crossing of
tho St. Louis, Vandalia and Terre Hauto
railroad, but the panic of 1883 stoppod tho
work at that point, and now it is the pur
pose of those interested in tho enterprise to
only build tho link betwoen Suawnoetown
and Paducah and use the Springfield divis
ion of the O. & M. to Chic.gr by way of
Altamount, and the St. Louis division of
tho Louisville and Nashville to St. Louis.
Tho country through which tho proposed
road passes is very rich in mineral deposits,
such as iron, lend, silt, coal and potter's
clay, and the whole distance is lined with
valuable hard and soft timber, with lunuiu
erable beds of tho finest limestone. Emin
ent geologists have given it as their candid
opinion that there is iron enough in Hardin
county alono to build a railroad around the
world, The iron and lead mines of this sec
tion have beeu iu operation in a small way
for years, but owing to the great difficulty
of getting these products to market, no
considerable effort line ever been made to
fully develop them; but recontly iron men
of the Eastern cities havo made large in
vestments in the iron interests of Hardin
county, nod they are now interested in the
construction of this road, which establishes
the hope that it will be built and tho cars
running thereon within the next twelve
The commissioners of emigration of
New York are carrying out the law rigidly
in respect to assisted immigrants. Some of

of them until they could take care of them

and four children wlio were assisted by
the PiMir Guardians at home and lately ar
rived were passed through Castle Garden on
the promise of the man's well-to-do cousin
to shelter and feed his relatives. The
cousin kept his promise just one day and
night, and tho next morning turned the fam
ily out in tho street without breakfast. The
man wandered around trying to get work
all day and the family slept on the wharves
at night. The family was picked up out ot
the streets and will be sent back to their
Poor Guardians by the next ship of the line
that brought theni.

The street committee met again jei
terday afternoon at the appointed hour. All
members and tho mayor were present. The
meeting lasted several hours and the com
mittee completed its report upon various
matters of importance, which it was to sub
mit to the council in special meeting as
sembled last night. It agreed to have the
council to determine the price to I paid
for day's labor on the levee. From a num
ber of applications it selected Messrs. Ju
lius Serbian, Thomas Median and George
Wootou as foremen over three gangs of
men to be employed on the levee. The
committee was undicided between Messrs.
Wooton snd Wims. H ith wcra applicants.
The committee loved both equally well. It
recognized the eminent fitness of each for
the important position of public trust sod
honor he caught; but it had only one hole
left to fill ami in vain it wished it had two.
Great beads of perspiration stood on the
committee's brows when finally it decided
to determine the important question by
tossing up a nickel. We don't know which
was heads or tails, but we imagine Wims
was the latter, for he got loft behind. .
