The Philade'phia branch of the Penn
sylvania society for prevention of cruelty to
animals, is conducted by some kind-hearted
ladies of that city. A male agent with as
sistants is kept constantly busy in helping
t a painless death the superfluous domes
tic animals t the city. Many cats are not
killed, and these aru well provided for, the
building devoted to the purposes t the so
ciety being specially arranged for their ac
commodation. Some are taken as "board,
era" while their owntirs are out of town, and
some arc kept to bo given to people who
wish to keep a cat; all others are put to
death. All dogs are killed as soon as pos
sible. All the animals killed are either as
phyxiated in a charcoal over or are chloro
formed. Either proceas is painless, and
death occurs in from a minuto to a minute
and a half. More than thirteen hundred
were disposed of m Junn, and more than a
thousand in July. Tho bodies are taken
up by tho bone-men.
The Wabash road is considerably be
hind with monthly dues to their employes.
With some tho company is ono month,

not do tho work so much desired by citi
zens here, i. e. transfer its freight traffic

A crazy man came up on the steamer
City of Cairo last evening. His name was
libit tz; he had been employed as engineer
a! the government works at Plum Point un
der Capt. Knight. His heme is in St. Louis
where he has a family living. Ho was seut
up by Capt. Knight for treatment at St.
Louis. When put ahoar I of the boat he
seemed to be gentle enough, but on the
wiy up be became violent an i four men
had to take charge of him ami stand guard
over him and hold him down at times in or
der that he might not injure himself and
others on the boat.
Among the guests at The llalliday on
Sunday were Mr. Henry Kennedy, master
carpenter of the Illinois Central road, who
has charge of all the river and lake carpen
ter work of the company, and Mr. E.J.
Howard, of the firm ot Howard Bros.,
boat builders, of Jeffersonville; and Mr.
Ainsley, of the firm of Ainsley, Cochran &,
Co., Large steamboat machinery builders, of
Louisville, Ky. These gent'emen met here
fortho purpose of consulting with reference
1 1 the new transfer steamer that is being
built for the Illinois Central company to
take the place ot the McComb here. The
steamer's keel was laid several weeks ago,
and she is being completed as rapidly as
By climbing up one of the supports of
the awning in front of the business houses
of Messrs. Goldstine & Hosen water, some
person or persons gained entrance to a second-story
window over the clothing depart
ment Saturday night, and silently stealing
down stairs, rilled the money drawer of
what money it contained, amounting to
something over five dollars, and then as
"silently stole away." These men are very
evidently cautious workers. They might
have attempted to blow the safe open and,
succeeding in this, might hive made a good
haul. But they are doing no reckless work,
are taking as little risk of detection as pos
sible, ami this indicates that they intend
to stay a little while longer. It is just
probable that when they get ready to leave
they will make it known by n desperate at
tempt to make a big stake.
Train loads of Knights Templar hav
for several weeks back been going from all
the principal points in the east toward the
golden land of the west, to engage in tho
triennial conclave that has grown to bo such
a notable an 1 magniticiotit occasion in late
years. Illinois contributed her share to
the number of delegates, but none went
from Cairo. It was understood from tho
first that Cairo would send out undo a good
sized, handsome- and in every other way
very creditable delegation, but ciniitn
stances intervening seem to bavo disrupted
tho arrangemouts. Dr. Dunning, who had
been given charge of tho Illinois delegation
by the grand commander, and who had his
expenses to and from San Francisco paid,
was compelled to forego tho honor and the
pleasure on account of his professional en
gagements at homo, among whioh wore tho
caro of several patients upon whom he had
performed delicato surgical operations. But
Cairo Commandory is well represented In
tho excursion, nevertheless, by throo mem
bers who are not residents of Cairo, namely
Mr.Cricket.pt Carbondalo; Mr. Hall, of
Makauda; and Mr. Hamilton, of Murphys
boro. Captain Charles Baughman did a
nnblo deed last evening. While tho steamer
City of Cairo lay at tho wharf, a negro
woman came aboard carrying basket and
a box. She wanted to tako passage on the
boat. But a fow minutes later a burly
negro camo aboard, who claimed to be the
woman's husband aud charged her with
having taken things out of tho houso that
belonged to him. A few words were
exchanged whi n tho black brute pounced
upon the woman, bent and kicked her re
peatedly, jerked the basket from hur arm
and kicked her again so that she rolled ovor
on tho deck, aud he was about to repeat the
inhuman act evidently much to the
entertainment of a crowd of roustabouts,
w hen Captain Baughman, who was standing
on the wharf-boat guards, having his at
tention called to tho disturbance, took in
the situation at a glance, sprang over the
guards onto the boat and with a series of
well-directed blows from his good right
arm sent the black animal sprauling upon
thedeokfrom which he arose aftera little and
beat a hasty ret 'eat up the levee. Captain
Baughman complimented tho crowd of
idle lookers-on upon their manliness and
then left to finish his watermelon.
The match game of base-ball last Sun
day between tne Kck fouls, of Paducah, and
the Chicago Clothing House nine, of Cairo,
on the Twenty-eighth street grounds was
one of the best games pi ij'td in this city
for a number of j ears. Tho boys wa re all
in good trim; the weather was fine'; the
ground was m excellent condition. Tue
Paducah club came down on a covered
barge towed by a little boat called Mary,
and quite a crowd carne with them. They
wi re received by the Cairo uiiie and con
veyed by street c ir immediately to the
ground. To1 game commenced nbout2:U0
o'clock an I concluded just before 6 o'clock.
It was witmed by a Urge company of
citizens including many lidies. Iu the first
three innings th" Kckfords made two tallies
t.i the Cairo's none, but .liter that the latter
club woke up and throughout the remain
ing six innings did some very good playing,
making seven tallies and permitting the
Eck fords to make only jtie in addition to
the other two they had scored in the first
three innings, so that the game stood seven
to three in favor of the Cairo club, when it
elo.M'd. After the game was ovi r She Cairo
boj made up a collection among them
selves and I'iOm thn lookers-on. to aid the
Eck fords to defray the expenses of their
trip. About 'JO were raised in this way
and turned over to the Eckfords. It ap
pears that this year the Eckfords depended
entirely upon their Ir me bvlent as Cairo
did, and (he p sult is thit last year's success
does not follow i'. The bo)s played very
well indeed; they made several brilliant
clash s, but they arecerta;nly no match for
Cairo's crack uiue. If they would stand
a-iy chance of winuiug here, they will have
to trot out a professional or two again.
