They were seated on the platform of

said, in her most insinuating tones i "Char

I want you to get me one." Charley smiled
at her innocenco, but resolvod to humor it.
"Would you prefer a French dude!" he
asked. "I think not," vlie answered,

Here is a shoe taken from yesterday's

of cash, spend a few hours in the city cala

The extract from Mark Twain's book,
concerning the Darnell-Watson vendetta,
indicates that formerly theso two families
contented themselves with shooting only
ono another down like dogs. But now there
aro only two Darnells left and it seems
that they have condescended to hurry tho
old family grudge in order to preserve
their worthless lives against tho bullets or
knives of their treacherous cousins of the
Watson tribe, and combined with them to
make war upon the rest of humanity who

-Tho Bloomington Bulletin of Thursday
acknowledges the great error of its writer
of Sunday, when he referred to Cairo as
being fever, mud and green scum cursed.
Tho B. B. charges tho error to tho humor
ous writer on tho paper and proceeds to
make reparation In the following truthtul
nnd very acceptablo manner: "Humorous
men, liko the writer in question, have made
Cairo tho butt of their stalo Jokes over
sinco the days of Charles Dickens. Thoy
havo represented tho city as wator-aflllctod
and unhealthy. Tho coutrary is tho fact
on tho contrary quite the reverse Is the
truth. Whilo all the cities along the Ohio
and Mississippi rivers have been flooded
a)d almost destroyed, Cairo has stood un
harmed; and, barring the epidemics that
occasionally attack her from Memphis and
St. Louis, she is one of the healthiest cities
in tho United States."
Sometime ago Peter Youug, a negro,
bought a lot at the corner of Twonty
second street and Poplar. Ho paid part
on it and gave a mortgage for the balance.
He didn't pay the balance, though the time
was extendod beyond the mortgage, and the
lot was sold. It was bought by Mr. Patrick
Fitzgerald and subsequently Bold by him
Mr. Hauuon. But all this time Peter re
tained possession of the lot and occupied
it, refusing to give it up to its rightful
owner. Yesterday Mr. Ilannon brought
suit to gain possession of his property. The
case was tried in Justice Robinson's court
and was continued.
A number of our rivermen visited
Mato McClatchy, of the steamer Vicksburg,
at tho hospital yesterday, and found him
terribly disfigured. He has six or seven
cuts in the head, one side of his face is
much swollen and yellow in color, while
tho other is black an 1 blue. His bsck is
one mass of raw flesh and one arm ia
lacerated from wrist to shoulder.
His nosu is broken in two places and five
ribs aro broken, threy on one side
and two no the other. Tho clubs
used were of green wood about au inch and
a half in diameter aud three feet long. He
feels very soie and suffers much, but is
getting along as well as could be expected.
Chapter 1. Friday night about 10:30
o'clock, while the steamer City of Helena
was lying at one of the wharfboats, three
men in a skiff came around from tho rear,
two of whom boarded her while one held
the skiff close under her guards. The two
captured a barrel of flour and were rolling
it toward the Bkiff when they were dis
covered by tho watchman who gave chasu.
But the thieves had also seen the watchman
and they dropped their plunder and made
for tho skiff. The watchman fired at tlmm
as they ran, but ono of them jumped over
board into the river while the other gained
the skiff and went ashore. The one who
jutupedj into the river was hoard by
the watchman to call for help; but before
aid could be given him lie went under end
drowned. Who he was is not yet known.
Chapter II. Yesterday morning a white
man was found lying on the ground near
tho river bank, near where the Halliday
warehouse stood. Ho was wounded in the
knee and could not locomote. Chief Myers
was notified and he forthwith gave the
poor fellow his attention. He found the
woundod man to be Al. Hollowell, a river
man and a "bum." A series of questions
elicited from Al. this story: He bad ac
cepted an invitation from a friend to take
a little ride in a skiff, round about the
wharfboats, in tho cool of tho evening be
fore; lie and his friend had rowed about
but a few minutes when a pistol or gun
was heard to bark and Al. cauylit a chuuk
of lead right in his knee. He was rowed
ashore and left on the bank by bis friend
(I) who went away saying that ho would
return with aid, but hid not yet returned.
He assured the chief that the gun had very
probably been accidentally discharged by
some one on the wharfboat and that the
ball had accidontly found its way through
his knee. His wound was
therefore tho result of an ac
cidental accident, so to speak. The story
was well told and plausable enough, but
the chief shook his head doubtfully, and
sent tho poor fellow to taK Mary's Infirmary
to bo cured of his wound.
The following chapter from Mark
Twain's "Life cn tho Minsissippi," relating
to the Darnells ami Watsons, who, within
the last week, have brought their names so
unfavorably before the public, may be
found of interest: "Wo struck down
through the chute of Island No. 8, and I
went below and fell into conversation with
a passenger, a handsome man, with easy
carriage and an intelligent lace. We were
approaching Island No. 10, a place so cele
brated during tho war. This gentleman's
home was on tho main shore in its neigh
borhood. I had some talk with him about
the war times; but presently the discourse
fell upon "feuds,-" for in no part of the
South has tho vendetta flourished more
briskly, or held out longer between warring
families, thuu in this particular region.
This gentleman said: "There's boon more
than one feud around hero, in old times,
hut I reckon tho worst ono was between the
Darnells and the Watsons. Nobody don't
kuow now what the first quarrel was about,
it's an long ago; tho Darnells ami the Wat
sons don't know, if there's any of them liv
ing, which I dou'ttlnuk there is. Some
says it was about n horse or a cow anyway,
it was a little matter; the money in it was
n't of no consequence none in the world
both families was rich. The thing could
have been fixed up, easy enough ; but do,
that wouldn't do. Rough words had been
passed; and ao, nothing but blood could fix
it up after that.- That horse or cow, which
ever it was, cost sixty years of killing and
crippling I Every yoar or so somebody was
hot, on ono side or the other; and as fast
as oue generation was laid out, tbelr sons
took up thrj feud and kept it agoing. And
it's J list as I say; they kept on shooting each
other, yoar In and year out making a kind
of religion of it, you boo till they'd
done forgot, long ago, what it,wat all about.
Wherever i Darnell caught a Watson, or a
Watson caught a Darnell, one of 'em was
going to got hurt only quostion was, which
of tbem got the drop on the other. They'd
shoot one another down, right in the pres
ence of the family. They didn't hunt for
each othor, but when they happened to
meet, they pulled and begun. Moo would
shoot boys, boys would shoot men. A man
shot a boy twelve years old happened on
him in the woods, and didn't give himfno
chanco. If ho had V given him a chance,
the hoy'd 'a' shot biui. Both families be
longed to the same church (everybody
around here is religious); through all this
fifty or sixty years' fuss, both tribes wm
there every Sunday, to worship. They
lived each side of the line, and the church
was at a landing callod Compromise. Half
tho church and half the aisle was in Ken
tucky, the other half in Tennessee. Sun
days you'd boo tho families drive up, all in
their Sunday clotheB, men, women, and
children, and file up the aisle, and set
down, quiet and orderly, oue lot on the
Tennessee side of tho church aud the other
oo the Kentucky side; aud the men and
boys would lean their guns up against the
wall, bandy, and then all hands would join
in with the prayer and praise; though they
Bay the man next the aisle didn't kneel
down, along with tho refit of tho family ;
kind of stood guard. I don't kuow; Dever
was at that church in my life; but I re
member that that's what used to be said.
"Years ago, the Darnells was so
thinned out that tho old man and his two
sons concluded they'd leave the country.
They started to Uke eteainboat just above
No. 10; but the Watsons got wiudofit;
and they arrived just as the. two young
Darnells was walking up tho companion
way with their wives on their arms. The
fight begun then, and they never got no
further both of them killed. Atter that,
old D.irnell got into trouble with the mau
that run the ferry, and the ferry-man got
the worst of it aud died. But his friends
shot old Darnell through and through
filled him full of bullets, and ended him."
Many times yuu want to keep meat or fish
for several days. Lay it in a solution of
Hex Magnus over night and you can keep
it for weeks. You can also keep milk a
week or more by stirring in a little of the
"Snow Flake" brand.

correspondent ot lust Sunday gave a very
enthusiastic description of the enterprise
and rapid growth of the place. But be
said nothing of the daily miracles perform
ed by the Springs, whoso angel keeps its

Creal Springs is ten miles from Marion and
five miles from New Burnsides, from either
of these places one may take the stage to
Creal. Here and there in tho shady woods
can be found cold Springs with mossy,
fern-fringed sides. Once, while exploring
the woods and climbing the hills, we found
what would have delighted the heart of an
aesthete an old-fishioned spiuning wheel,
owned and treasured by an old lady, who
bad lived in ber log cabin on the bill for
The Borton Springs, also situated in
Creal, have been analyzed and found to
contain valuable medical properties. Mr.
Creal, proprietor of the Springs, showed OS
mineral rocks and an Indian axe, all of
which were found at tho Springs; he also
told us much of interest relating to the
Brown's Hotel is the largest, and Its
landlord is a very courteous gentleman.
When our visit was ended, aud we once
more beheld the splendid city ot Cairo, we
felt like Gullives entering the land of the
givnts, only happies, because it was home.
