Even Paducah has had energy ar.d
good sensu enough to till tip her low lots
and streets, some of them to the depth of
eighteen feet. Even thero such narrow
views of public policy as the Argus puis
forth with reference to the high grade
scheme here, would excite tho contempt of
the people and the publisher would bo
hooted out of tho city.
The question whether a widower may
marry his sister-in-law, which for ninny
years has been agitated in England and is
yet unsettled, was disposed of In Prussia
over 130 years ago by Frederick the Great.
Such a couple applied to the Consistory of
Madgeburg for permission to marry, but
were refused. At a last resort they direct
ed their petition to tho king, and on iU;
margin tho Great Frederick wrote the fol

A man named St. Leger, living in Mis

Recently tho order has gone forth on
the Wabash road that engineers must
make their engines pull all the cars rated
to them, and the enforcement ot this order
by Train Dispatcher Shearer has caused
just a little growl from some of the engin
eers, but a general increase in the length of
freight trains all along the line. Engines
that formerly brought in only fourteen or
fifteen cars now pull eighteen or nineteen.
The men who are loudest in their
denunciation of the street-filling-to-levee-grade
project are the ones who would not
have to pay one dollar of the expense.
Foremost among these is the P. M. Argus
man, but then he owns a ten-dollar boat
bought during tho la.st flood, and, although
the bottom has fallen out, he is etill hope
ful of an opportunity to use it in the
streets of Cairo next spring.
A neyro named Wm. Gardner entered

Yesterday the victim of tho robbery swore

and bound over to the circuit court by
Magistrate Comings in the sum of 200.
The stolen property was recovered.
The Young Men's Christian associa

ceremony last night. The attendance was
large, the room b ing nearly filled with la

The addresses were short and pithy and
were listened to very attentively, as they do
served to be. Songs and music were rend
ered by so ne of our favorite singers an 1
lent a great additional charm to the event.
The rooms thus thrown open to the public
and the organization placed upon a firm

good in the community.

The man who is forced to withdraw
Irotn the discussion of an important matter,
and can find no hotter cover for his inglo
rious retreat than the gross misrepresenta
tion of his opponents can hardly
expect to bo credited with
honesty and sincerity in his thoughts and
purposes. The Argusnt last evening wrenches
several sentences from the body of an item
that nppcared in Tim Bi'LI.ktik and
twists them into a ridiculous self-contradic

cm afford to impose upon the intelligence
of its readers wo can certainly afford to let
It do so; and it Is a very appropriate con
elusion of so senseless a warfare as tho Ar
gus has been waging lor several months
hick. The spirit of enterprise and progress
in the city has only been strengthened by
the effort that has been made to smother it
and it will soon break forth in as brilliant
a scheme and as successful a one as was

Near one o'clock this morning much
excitement was crested on Commercial av

and ljsty cries of murder. Investigation

Mahanny and Hogan, on tho lookout for

dle of the avenue. Officer Mahanny went
out to him and requested him to come and
let himself be seen, but
the young fellow got scared nnd
ran like a deer down the street, followed by
the three oil'n inls. II was captured at the
corner of Sixth street, but no evidence of
crookedness was found about him.

-Constable Ha.. Martin went to Me
tropolis Wednesday to subtena W. C.
Smith, a citizen of that place, to appear be
fore United States Commissioner Candee
here on the 4th pr 'xitim, to testify against
Betijuuin O. Jones, un attorney of Mt-topo-lis,
who is charged with having acted as
United States pension agent for a number of
per .oris and greatly over-charged them for
hi- services in procuring pensions f r thmn.

Smith and Jones fell out aU.ut something,

from a number of persons for whom Jones
had aeted as p-.-nshm agent, charging Jones
with h iving charged them Ir-mi forty to

The match game of baseball between
the Charleston and New Madrid (Mo.) boys,
played tt the la'ter place Wednesday, re
sulted again in victory for the former by a
scon-ol ten to seven, It was the intention
of the CharliMtoiH to let the New Madrids
win the game, but when they had permit
ted them to make five tallies the Charles
ton's got angry at the ungallant treatment
they received at the hands of the New
Madrids, in having to pay their own fare
and t ieir board-biil, etc., and then they
proceeded to "sock it to them" to the
tune of a series of tallies in quick succes
sion. After the game was over the Charles
ton's offered to put up one hundred dollars
that they could play the New Madrids an
odu r game yesterday with the tallies all
on their side as at Charleston, but they
found no takers. Hard words were pass
ed, and knives ami pistols were drawn by
the New Madiid club before the matter
was finally settled.
Mr. and Mrs L. A. Phelps are now at
Anna where the former will try to give the
latter such care as her peculiar case seems
to require. In a letter to Mr. Phelps sever
al days ago, Dr. War lner expressed the
firm belief that Mrs, Phelps needed treat
ment in the asylum, (his belief being
founded upon the Dr's examination of her
several days before. The Paducah News
comments as follows upon the item in Tun
Bl'I.lktin stating that tin jury in Mrs. Phelps'
case had decided her to bo sane: "The
writer has known the unfortunate lady id
luiled to from her childhood ami is familiar
with the sad circumstances of her case.
There ia not a particle of doubt as to tho
unsoundness of her mind, and how a jury
could find as it did is incomprehensible.
Mrs, Phelps has for years been a sufferer
from catarrh in the head, which apparently
affected her brain. She was a cheerltil and
niot amiable lady before this unhappy
ullliction overtook her, and in company
with her scores of friends tho writer earn
estly hope that under the intelligent treat
ment she will receive at Anna she will re
cover her shattered health. What malum
her ca-o peculiarly touching is that she

thereof, Every postmaster who shall issue
a postal-note, under the authority of tho
postiiiaster-(,'cneral, shall make tho same
payable to bearer when receipted, at any
